More on the framing of the Border Guards

More evidence is finally coming out about the obvious railroading of the two border agents Ramos and Compean.
Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas, yesterday called for the resignation of four DHS investigators, including Assistant Inspector General Elizabeth Redman, after DHS Inspector General Richard Skinner testified under oath his deputies had lied to Congress about non-existent reports that were supposed to have established Ramos and Compean as rogue cops who wanted to "shoot some Mexicans."
These non-existent reports were the primary reason that these border guards testimonies were suspect.
Medical records obtained by WND clearly establish the bullet wounds suffered by Aldrete-Davila involved a lateral wound to the left buttocks, not a "shot in the back" as repeatedly claimed by Sutton. This is completely contrary to the claim that the smuggler was shot in the back as he tried to run away, but is more consistent with someone in a threatning sideways stance perhaps pointing a gun.
The smugglers handler, DHS Special Agent Christopher Sanchez, who had signed a number of the reports used to convict Ramos and Compean also sheparded the smuggler around and when he was released from the hospital, Sanchez took possession of the removed bullet and took it home, breaking the "chain of evidence". The facts must come out and those responsible for this injustice must be punished.
