SO you still think this is your land? Thats NOT what "Obama and Janet Napolitano" THINK! (October 2011 story). Arizona Rancher, Roger Barnett, had been stuck
in a vicious legal battle from 2004 to 2011. Many illegal immigrants
were trespassing his property and he held a group of 26 of them at gun
point.

According to the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund, the illegal
immigrants' rights were being infringed upon. Their case: Barnett did
not feel threatened by the illegal immigrants and therefore he could not
have been acting in self-defense. A nearby rancher was murdered by
illegal immigrants in 2009.

First of all, if you have a gun you wouldn't feel threatened.
Secondly, it is his property. You give up your rights once you trespass
someone's property without permission -- let alone coming crossing the
border.

He was ordered to pay $80,000 because three of the illegal immigrants had Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Ummm?


The U.S. Supreme Court has upheld a 2009 ruling against Cochise
County rancher Roger Barnett, forcing him to pay about $87,000 in
damages related to his assault of illegal immigrants on his ranch in
2004.

The jury found him liable on four claims of assault and four claims of
infliction of emotional distress, and ordered Barnett to pay $77,804 in
damages. The $87,000 he must pay reflects that original amount plus
interest.
