Andy Ramirez, who has been involved with the case as chairman of Friends of the Border Patrol , told WND the DHS's actions "represent obstruction of justice, and they should be held in contempt of Congress, and, if possible, prosecuted to the full extent of the law."

"This admission today is yet more proof of how they are willing to distort the facts, as I have charged all along, in order to ensure a conviction," he said.

"Even management at the station in Fabens was fully aware of what had transpired and for whatever reason nothing was ever generated and once all this comes forward, I mean, it's my belief even his attorneys' belief that even once that does come forward and all that information is presented that the charges will possibly be dropped or dismissed or he will be found not guilty based on that what did transpire.

"Directly contradicting prosecutor Sutton's assertion that agents Ramos and Compean filed false reports, the April 2005 administrative hearing reveals Compean was forthcoming concerning the events of the incident."

"Richards was applying pressure on Compean not to report the assault, because that would have demanded paperwork."

"The "unjust" prosecution of Ramos and Compean, he said, "weakens border security by discouraging all U.S. law enforcement officers from drawing their weapons in self-defense or in the defense of our nation."

"Our highest priority in the war on terror is to secure our borders," Culberson said. "These two agents need to be pardoned and we need to reassure our brave Border Patrol agents and law enforcement officers that we support them and want them to feel free to use their best judgment and whatever force they think is necessary to protect America."

" I strongly believe that the sentences in this case are too extreme, given the criminal nature of the defendant and his possession of large quantities of drugs," Feinstein said in a statement. "These men were given sentences that some individuals who are convicted of murder wouldn't receive."

"Also on Capitol Hill yesterday, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., issued a stern warning to President Bush following the report that Ramos was beaten by prison inmates Saturday : "I tell you, Mr. President, if these men especially after this assault are murdered in prison, if one of them lose their lives, there's going to be some sort of impeachment talk in Capitol Hill."

The Facts on Leitgeb's Criminal Trial
Can you trust that transcript?

By Larry Leitgeb
These are the comments I posted to AHRC.com in hopes that they will make it to Washington.

My story is a little different, but just as applicable on the issue of due process.  My transcript was methodically altered for my criminal trial. 

After 4 months in a state boot camp, I finally had the opportunity to read my transcript.  If I did not know better, I might have thought I attended a different trial.  I knew very well that the court erred, but when I went back to look for them they were not there.  Every single issue of relevance that I wanted to verify had disappeared from the transcript.

I remember distinctly an outburst on the part of an officer.  That outburst was incorporated into his testimony.  I remember the judge saying that the law is what he says the law is.  That statement was never recorded.  The judge also said that Supreme Court rulings from Texas and Arizona don't apply in his court. That statement, the first comment of a new session, simply disappeared. An officer testified that he would give a ticket to someone, even if he did not see the offense.  His statement was changed into him saying that he would NOT do such a thing.

When my lawyer tried to get the transcript, it took forever.  The court kept claiming that the court reporter was ill.  I believe that the real cause for the delay was the time it took to alter the transcript so that I would not have any chance of an appeal.

These alterations may be provable even after all this time.  A jury is likely to remember such things as an outburst from an officer.

All of this can be found in my Post Conviction Relief request which can be found on the web at www.patriotnetwork.info/FF-PCRA.htm .  The paragraph most relevant is 81.

It occurred to me that we have 9 Supreme Court justices sitting in Washington DC day after day who deliberate on pertinent issues of the day who think that the decisions they make are relevant.  They are not!  They make decisions based on the transcript.  They can't deliver justice if the transcripts they see have been altered.

What procedures are in place to prevent a lower court from changing the transcripts?  Is there an organization or an agency that routinely audits the lower courts?  If a conspiracy is unraveled, will the judge and/or the prosecutor face prison time?  These are the issues that must be addressed to restore faith in the American justice system.
