Bush Pardons Crooks and Drug Pushers at Year's End

I was just reading where Bush just granted clemency to a bunch felons convicted of drug pushing, mail fraud and other assorted low life crimes, but not a word yet for the pardons of Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, two outstanding Border patrol agents who have become victims of the political maneuvering between the U.S. & Mexico. (They were convicted for doing their jobs. Really! (Go to the Ramos-Compean Blog for more information on this outrageous case)

Apparently, there is an Office of Pardons in this huge bloated bureaucracy of ours that forgot years ago it was established to serve the people

What does it take to break into the heart of our so-called "compassionate conservative" President? Maybe a candlelight vigil in front of the White House on Christmas eve?

Or maybe flooding the telephone and fax lines of the "Office of Pardons" demanding a pardon for Ramos & Compean.

Continue to send email letters to President Bush and, maybe a call or fax to the Office of Pardon listed below:

Pardon Attorney Roger C. Adams
Office of the Pardon Attorney
1425 New York Avenue, N.W.
Suite 11000
Washington, D.C. 20530
tel.: (202) 616-6070
fax: (202) 616-6069

The Office of the Pardon Attorney, in consultation with the Attorney General or his designee, assists the President in the exercise of executive clemency as authorized under Article II, Section 2, of the Constitution. Under the Constitution, the President's clemency power extends only to federal criminal offenses. All requests for executive clemency for federal offenses are directed to the Pardon Attorney for investigation and review. The Pardon Attorney prepares the Department's recommendation to the President for final disposition of each application. Executive clemency may take several forms, including pardon, commutation of sentence, remission of fine or restitution, and reprieve.
