Ramos & Compean Update: Court Transcripts Released!

Source: Independent Blogger

Darnell @ The Independent Blogger reports that the trial transcripts from the Ramos & Compean trial have finally, FINALLY! been released. Not looking good for weaselsnake Johnny Sutton...
The nearly 3,000 pages of transcripts in the Ramos and Compean case show that even before the trial started, several key rulings went against the Border Patrol agents. For example, defense attorneys wanted to be able to talk about how dangerous the border region is where the agents encountered the illegal alien drug smuggler. It’s an area, of course, with a well-documented history of violent confrontations between drug cartels and law enforcement.

But prosecutors objected to that. And the judge agreed. She ordered defense attorneys to refrain from any mention of what she called the alleged dangerousness of the border between the United States and Mexico.
