    US Marine veteran jailed in Mexico to be released​

    The Marine held in Mexico on a questionable gun charge will be released from prison in Mexico, reports confirmed Friday.

    Jon Hammar, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, has been in held in a Mexican prison, after he was arrested in August and charged with a federal weapon felony — facing up to 15 years in prison, for carrying an antique gun into Mexico on his way to Costa Rica for a hunting and surfing trip — despite having a required permit and attempting to declare the gun.

    “The court ruled on the motion that excluded the evidence on the charge because of a violation of his constitutional rights under Mexican law which resulted in the charge being dropped,” Hammar’s father, Jon Hammar Sr. told Fox News during a layover in Houston on his way to pick up his son.

    Good.

    Hopefully he does a better check of the laws of the country he's visiting before he breaks them.

    Don't go.

    It's really that simple.

    I'll never visit places like Qatar, Jordan or Saudi Arabia.

    Why?

    Because their laws are fruit loops.

    I'll bet he never tries to take an illegal weapon into Mexico again.

    Do you wonder why the Mexican gov. Ruled that he broke no laws and that his constitutional rights had been stomped on or are you a natural ass kisser of the cartels?
