Feds go after soldier who did the right thing

Army Reserve sergeant Patrick Haab made a citizen's arrest of 7 illegal immigrants and found himself arrested. After overwhelming support from fellow citizens, local authorities dropped the charges.

Now the Federal government has decided to waste taxpayer money going after him, since they obviously have no intention on using it to protect the border.

The U.S. Department of Justice is reviewing whether an Army reservist violated federal civil rights laws when he held seven undocumented immigrants at gunpoint earlier this month at an Arizona rest stop.

Arizona U.S. Attorney Paul Charlton said Wednesday that he asked federal civil rights lawyers to look into the case as a "cautionary step" following last week's decision by the Maricopa County Attorney's Office not to prosecute Sgt. Patrick Haab.

"Mr. Haab's actions risked the lives of the illegal aliens he detained," Charlton said. "He risked his own life, and had law enforcement officers come upon that scene not knowing what was happening, he could have risked everyone's life."

Let's see, he was trained by the Federal government as a soldier, yet that same Federal government considers him unqualified when it comes to confronting apparently unarmed illegal aliens? This Charlton sounds like quite a moron. He's fishing around for something to charge Haab with, and making a stink about it. Who's he trying to impress?
