Border Pardon

I have sent this message to President Bush:

I ask that you pardon former Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean. These law enforcement agents have been in prison for more than 2 years.
Illegal alien Osvaldo Aldrete-Davila was smuggling over 700 pounds of marijuana into the US when Border Patrol Agents Ramos and Compean attempted to stop him. A physical altercation ensued and Aldrete-Davila ran toward the border resulting in a foot pursuit and the pointing of an object at the agents by the fleeing suspect. Fearing they were about to be shot the agents protected themselves as they have been trained to do.

May this travesty of justice be reversed!

What nonsense. An individual Bishops is compelled to send an opinion to the President in support of a Lou Dobb's position on a border patrol shooting by U.S. officers? This appears, to me, to be a political position and statement that is not involved with the primary purposes of The Church. To me, all this nonsense dilutes the prestige of The Church.
