This is freakin' unbelievable!

This guy gets 2 1/2 years for building a drug tunnel into the U.S. and for the possession of 1,000 pounds with the intent to distribute, while cancer patients get longer than that for growing a freakin' plant!!

Where's the fucking justice???


A Mexican man has been sentenced to 2 1/2 years in federal prison for his role in a secret tunnel that was used to smuggle marijuana across the border to the United States.

Antonio Morales Barrios told a federal judge Monday in San Diego that he regretted his actions. He will also lose his legal residency.

Prosecutors say the 41-year-old was the caretaker of a home in downtown Calexico that housed a tunnel used to smuggle drugs from Mexico to California.

Morales pleaded guilty in May to possession of more than 1,000 pounds of marijuana with intent to distribute.

The tunnel discovered in September 2006 is one of at least 60 found along the U.S.-Mexico border since 2001.

Hm, I wonder if they got the idea from Weeds or if Weeds based that on an actual event.

This has been a common practice in the Southwest. 1000 lbs is a level 28 offense under the Sentencing Guidelines. Since he plead guilty they probably dropped any enahancements for importation, as well as gave him a reduction for acceptence and responsibility of the violation. It is a 5 - 6.5 yr sentence, however if he agreed not to fight deportation they probably reduced his sentence. This happens often in the Federal Court System b/c of over crowding and the costs of incaceration. So if he agreed to do his 2 yrs and then be deported upon release, they will often cut the sentence in half.

Although two years from now we'll have completely forgotten this entire incident, I would not be surprised if he was killed in prison, or shortly there-after returning to Mexico. Two reasons why I say this:

1. 2.5 years is obviously ridiculous
2. It has to be ridiculous for a reason
3. Mexican Drug Cartels don't take chances, and don't play games, and consequently have no respect for human life.
/:. Therefore: I believe he will die.

I just read that the cartels are setting up in Utah and dismembering people in Georgia.

When they've established themselves properly here the violence will resemble the days of the alcohol prohibition and what we currently see in Mexico.

As John Walters is now saying he favors decriminalizing all drugs in Mexico, this level of violence may force him to favor the same policy here...

No shit, I served more than that over a couple of o's and and scales in a car and lost my car on top of that.

If i wasn't an American I could live off of welfare, have free insurance, work under the table tax free and sell mass amounts of drugs. If I get caught, well shit, guess I have to serve a couple yrs and get a free ticket home.
