Why aren’t the libtards/socialists/totalitarians screaming that he should be kept in jail? Will he have to wear an electronic tether?
I’m extremely glad this fine man is being released. He was s damned fool to bring a firearm into that third world hellhole
Shouldn’t this be in BREAKING NEWS?
Now he needs to get a few of his Marine buddies and then go back and Chuck Norris the place.
First mistake was going into Mexico to begin with.
I am glad the man is home, but we should remember that pretty much the same thing has happened to a Marine who took a gun into New York City.
I would bet that the New York jail is a bit more comfortable than the Mexican one, but the fact is the laws in New York are as bad as the Mexican ones.
Get ‘cher GUN CONTROL RIIIIGHT HERE! ‘Down in Mehhhiccco land wit’ all them guns Barry O “walked” over the border thanks to all that TARP $$$$$$$$$.
Now, eat sh*t GRINGOS!!!
Now we can plan our vacation in fun-filled, sunny Mexico.
And the lesson?......MEXICO IS AN OUT-OF-CONTROL HELLHOLE that lacks in culture and human decency - put up a 20ft. fence and stay the the hell out of there!
The U.S. citizenry has been forcibly sending millions upon millions upon millions of bribery/extortion dollars to this corrupt country over the years....and those vacationing there seem blissfully unaware they're feeding the hand which is duping them.....and which is playing ALL of us for suckers.
Thank you,President Obama,Oh Wait.......
this wasn’t an accident in similar manner to ie ‘oops i forgot that was in the car’.
some time after i heard about this incident, i listened to a report [on bill o riley?] that in so many memory hazy words stated that this marine had completed & possessed all pertinent paperwork required by, & necessary to, cross into mexico with said firearm.
said marine prepared & did all this legal homework & paperwork pre border crossing. & therein lies the problem, which resides with matamoros leos entirely. evidently mexican authorities there in matamoros didn’t care if the gringo was in compliance with their legal procedures.
which begs the question, what was their intention, purpose etc. in arresting him ? well, if their purpose was to make an example of a law abiding American citizen so that the rest of us would know what to expect from matamoros authorities, it has served them well. there now exists no reason to trust mexican law enforcement even when their procedures are complied with.
is mexico an outlaw state ??
just who is in charge down there & what the heck is their problem ?
i say racism & sour grapes.
What are the lessons learned from this incident ladies & gentlemen: Just because a United States customs official tells you its ok doesn’t mean that the Mexican customs official will agree .
Mexico is a fast approaching failed state were the govt. is notoriously corrupt.
Trusting Mexican govt. officials is not a wise thing to do .
Trying to take firearms as an American after Operation Fast & Furious is idiotic the Mexicans are pissed & rightly so & are looking for payback.
