Default Only in America.........

Can someone find who their attorney is?? He needs an ass kicking!,2933,490084,00.html

An Arizona man who has waged a 10-year campaign to stop a flood of illegal immigrants from crossing his property is being sued by 16 Mexican nationals — seeking $32 million in damages — who accuse him of conspiring to violate their civil rights when he stopped them at gunpoint on his ranch on the U.S.-Mexico border, the Washington Times reported Monday.

The rancher, Roger Barnett, 64, began rounding up illegal immigrants in 1998 and turning them over to the U.S. Border Patrol after they destroyed his property, killed his calves and broke into his home, the newspaper reported.

The lawsuit is based on a March 7, 2004, incident in a dry wash on the 22,000-acre ranch, when he approached a group of illegal immigrants while carrying a gun and accompanied by a large dog.

Attorneys for the immigrants — five women and 11 men who were trying to cross illegally into the United States — have accused Barnett of holding the group captive at gunpoint, threatening to turn his dog loose on them and saying he would shoot anyone who tried to escape.

His Cross Rail Ranch near Douglas, Ariz., is known by federal and county law enforcement authorities as "the avenue of choice" for immigrants seeking to enter the United States illegally, the newspaper reports.

They're illegals doing an illegal action.

They should have no civil rights...

PLEASE let me be on that jury!

You mean to say "illegals" have the same civil rights in the US of A as Americans do?

Default Re: Only in America......... Do you relay this to U.S. Representative Kolbe or Flake or Kyle?

Barnett: They won't listen. They're useless. Kolbe was down two years ago in Douglas... We talked to him at the Border Patrol station - there were 20 of us and we told him what was going on...

It's like what would happen in other countries, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, the farmers would get upset because something wasn't going right and the government would come down saying "we didn't know that, we'll get it fixed". And they leave the area and say "those dumb bastards, we won't have to go and see them for another two years now". ... Well, that's what it was, a massage job.

Unbelievable! Probably an attorney of Mexican decent.

If this doesn't get thrown out of court I think all us anglo Americans should riot in the Mexican neighborhoods.

We won't destroy our own neighborhood like some other groups do.

Barnett could have saved himself a headache with 16 well placed shots. Dead people can't sue!
