US Trucker Nabbed With Ammo in Mexico Is Freed

A Dallas trucker imprisoned for seven months in Mexico on accusations that he tried to smuggle assault rifle ammunition into the country broke down in tears Friday when he returned to the U.S., saying he had at times given up hope.

Jabin Bogan maintains he was on his way to Phoenix to deliver the ammunition in April when he took a wrong highway exit and accidentally crossed the border into Mexico. Despite his insistence it was an honest mistake, the 27-year-old was arrested and taken to a Mexican maximum security prison.

“Some days I gave up hope. Some days I felt like God was, to be honest in my heart, like God was laughing. Like he was just punishing me for no reason. I felt like just giving up,” he said during a brief news conference in El Paso shortly after arriving back in the U.S.

    The U.S. trucker must prove he made a wrong turn…especially since Obama & Holder created the “Operation Fast & Furious” gunrunning scheme to supply military style weapons to Mexican drug lords who were then selling them to radical Muslim terrorists in Mexico. That should be treasonous.

    Perhaps his long criminal history cast doubts on his story.
