Border Patrol Agent Jesus “Chito” Diaz was just sentenced to two years in federal prison violating the civil rights of a Mexican drug smuggler by allegedly pulling on the suspect’s handcuffs. After an initial mistrial, Agent Diaz was convicted in June, despite the fact that two separate oversight agencies cleared him of any wrongdoing in the case.

So, why then was Agent Diaz prosecuted?

Apparently, for the same reason that so many other U.S. law enforcement officers have been…Because the Mexican government filed a complaint against him and the U.S. Justice Department eagerly complied.

Hi Billy! They should know better, it's not taxed! Lol
It reminds me of a funny newspaper cartoon I seen a few years back..
A Mexican Cartel truck full of weed en route to the US passing a US Agency truck full of guns en route to Mexico, smiling and waving at each other.
