Tahmooressi freed from Mexican jail

I’m pretty sure there will be a lot of folks that disagree with me on this post but I’m just as sure that there will be many that do. If you’ve ever been to Mexico, driven into Mexico, you will probably understand why I have no pity for this guy.

Tahmooressi freed from Mexican jail

Andrew TahmooressiU.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, jailed more than 200 days in Mexico, was freed by a judge Friday and immediately returned to the U.S., his family said.

Tahmooressi, 26, who served two tours of duty in Afghanistan, had been held since March 31, when he said he mistakenly crossed into Mexico with three legally-purchased and registered guns in his truck. SOURCE

Well, how about that? Out of the *blue* Mexico lets Tahmooressi out of jail and he makes a run for the border, the U.S. border.

I don’t know if anyone noticed but I haven’t made any posts about Tahmooressi or his plight, you see, I have been across the U.S. and Mexican border on many occasions and I have to say, there’s NO WAY Tahmooressi crossed that border by accident, unless he is the most incredibly STUPID product the Unites States Marine Corps ever produced.

I have seen MANY stories from all over the ‘net blaming Barack Hussein Obama for not getting involved in this and demanding Tahmooressi be released. This is that rare occasion when Obama did nothing and nothing was exactly what he needed to do. An American broke Mexican law and suffered the consequences. What a concept, now, enforce our laws.

Many claimed that Tahmooressi had indeed made a mistake but that he was basically innocent. Many claim he didn’t cross the border with 3 guns in his vehicle because he wanted to, he did it because he has PTSD and he didn’t see the signs saying MEXICO AHEAD and signs that directed anyone not actually GOING TO Mexico to get in at least one, if not more lanes that led you to a U-Turn or another road and kept you in the USA.

It’s not like the signs are small, hidden, hard to spot or difficult to read. These are the signs at one of the crossings from El Paso to Juarez.

ElPaso 1

ElPaso 2
It takes an extremely inattentive driver to miss those signs and it takes a special kind of stupid to stand up and say, “I didn’t see the signs until it was too late.” That is a line of BS from a moron that has no business driving a bicycle. Why not just admit it; you’re stupid and you need to wear a sign telling everyone you’re stupid, that way they won’t expect too much from you.

Jabin BoganDoes anyone remember this guy? Trucker Jabin Bogan will face anti-gun charges in Mexico ?

Bogan crossed the border into Juarez with a U.S. based truck carrying 268,000 rounds of military ammunition. He claimed he missed his turn and had no choice but to go into Mexico.

I reference you back to the pictures above and I ask; how stupid do you have to be?

I am happy Jabin Bogan and Andrew Tahmooressi got out of Mexico, I really am, but I hope they don’t enter the gene pool and pollute it even further, McDonalds can only hire so many burger flippers and folks that can’t get an order straight.

You want fries with that??

    Having driven the highways of New Jersey for 30 years before moving to Florida I have to disagree with you on this Fred. The signs may direct you to where you want to go, but drivers who are stupid won’t let you get there. Even here in Florida the rule seems to be pass on the right. The amount of times I couldn’t “get over” and had to miss my exit are too many to list. That being said, our governments’ decision to stay out of this argument is inexcusable. More attention was given to the Redskins name change than was given to the Thamooressi situation. Gretta on a Fox newscast stood on the road under construction showing that in heavy traffic it would be diffacult to change lanes. Every photo or video clip that I have seen always shows heavy traffic at the approach to the border. I have to give the Marine the benefit of the doubt.

      If you have guns and/or ammo in your vehicle and you can’t get moved over and stay in the USA, STOP THE DAMNED VEHICLE and block traffic until hell freezes over… You miss an exit in Jersey and the worst thing that happens is you hit the next exit…

      Apples and oranges…

    Setting aside the question of how he ended up in Mexico, why in the world would someone with PTSD, or no mental issues be loaded up with those kinds of weapons anywhere near Mexico. That question has yet to be answered.

    • TexasFred says:

      That was MY big question too… It seems PTSD is the new *catch all* for whatever behavior happens to surface…

      • BobF says:

        It seems everyone who served in either Iraq or Afghanistan is claiming PTSD. The Army is telling soldiers separating that served in those areas to claim it since it’s quite simple and you’re almost always going to get approved. Approval means a disability check from the government for life.

        PSTD is considered a mental disorder and if the data bases for mental disorders and Instant Check for firearms purchases are ever linked, hundreds of thousands of Veterans are going to find their 2nd Amendment rights gone. I know many Iraq/Afghanistan who refused to claim it based on those reasons.

        • TexasFred says:

          I can’t believe so many youngsters are falling for it, PTSD is going to cost them a hell of a lot more than they get… As you said, guns immediately pops to mind…

          PTSD is a real disorder I am sure but it’s damned sure not a catch-all excuse for sheer stupidity…

          • BobF says:

            I know of one Vet here who was advised by the VA to claim PTSD to speed up his disability claim as any claim with PTSD gets worked on faster. He claimed it to speed up the process and it worked but then the FAA pulled his pilots license. He was attending school to get his commercial pilots license and it seems you cannot possess any type of pilots license with a confirmed mental disorder. To speed up his claim, he screwed his future.

        • Keoni Walaka says:

          PTSD is claimed by almost all GI’s separating today as they get an immediate 50% disability benefit. That means that they get a 50% reduction in income taxes, auto taxes, property taxes etc for life. Claim sleep deprivation and they get another 20-25%… They don’t read the fine print on the documents they sign vis a vis the PTSD. If the government ever wants to seize their weapons, they have already voluntarily authorized it under this agreement.
          About the only ones not wanting the disability welfare benefits are the severely wounded ones. They seem to have a rare trait amongst todays military… honor.

    I haven’t looked into what kind of meds are given for PTSD. But you know there is gun control discussion going on to deny gun sales to anyone ever given an anti-anxiety med. And electronic medical records accessible on need to know as determined by the government. Even if you have a doc who doesn’t do that, and how long will that last, doubtful pharmacy drug records will be private from government. Moreover, anti-anxiety meds are used for other reasons, i.e. anti-vomiting. Oh, well I’m paying on my insurance for my pregnancy, so I need the anti-vomit one too.
    Oh, and did I mention I once was prescribed a pill to make me comfortable for gum surgery. lol
