Nativist Head Asplosion Watch

SmokeyMonkey lays down the scene:

The USA Today reported yesterday that former border patrol agent Ignacio Ramos was attacked Saturday night in prison.

Prison officials on Tuesday confirmed assertions by a congressman and relatives of Ignacio Ramos. He was attacked Saturday night after his case was described on the TV show "America's Most Wanted," the officials said.
If you are not familiar with the story, it is not because of a lack of effort on the part of the anti-immigration cabal, including Lou Dobbs, the Minuteman Project, Free Republic, Liberty Post, and WorldNet Daily, among others. I provide no links to these fanatic militant sites because they are too incredibly easy to google. There is little legitimate reporting on the subject (as with many these days), but I thought I would give it a shot because when I heard of the story, I found only bunk to lead my research.

Using the article linked above, this initial description is a good introduction to the story:

Ramos and Compean, who reported to prison in January, were each sentenced to more than a decade behind bars... The agents were convicted last year of shooting Osvaldo Aldrete Davila in 2005 near El Paso and then trying to cover up the incident. Davila was shot once in the buttocks.
If you go check out the DKos version, you can already see people on "our side" defending the Border Patrol hooligans for shooting an unarmed man in the nalgas. And I wonder why I don't crosspost over there on a regular basis...

It's alright Democrats, keep selling out human rights. Your big tent will be meaningless when there's no one left underneath it.
