No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Washington Times: "An Arizona man who has waged a 10-year campaign to stop a flood of illegal immigrants from crossing his property is being sued by 16 Mexican nationals who accuse him of conspiring to violate their civil rights when he stopped them at gunpoint on his ranch on the U.S.-Mexico border.
The lawsuit said he then called his wife and two Border Patrol agents arrived at the site. It also said Mr. Barnett acknowledged that he had turned over 12,000 illegal immigrants to the Border Patrol since 1998.
..."This is my land. I´m the victim here," Mr. Barnett said. "When someone´s home and loved ones are in jeopardy and the government seemingly can´t do anything about it, I feel justified in taking matters into my own hands. And I always watch my back.""

I hope this case looses. To bad it's in Arizona. If it had been in Texas, Mr. Barnett could have shot them all and been done with it.

Apologies for the sporadic posting (I'm in computer science lab right now), the laptop I ordered 3 weeks ago has yet to run through UPS systems. I do not recommend using CompuDirect for ordering anything. Ever.

One of my uncles lives in Bisbee, Arizona, and knows this particular family. What a travesty of justice.

A ridiculous travesty of justice indeed.
