wow thats fukd up.my advice is stay away from the border.u will get killed or locked up abroad.the mex cartels kill politicians,cops,army,bp agents.a shotgun will get u beheaded out there.if u want to go to mexico,take a plane.i heard many horror stories about places like that.a few years ago a washed up pro surfer went down to nicaraugua and tried to marry a local.locals didnt appreciate it,so the lovers x showed up killed the poor woman and the surfer went down for it.another thing smugglers been using surfing as an excuse to bring drugs in since the 60s.they used to paddle bundles on surfboards.surfing is fun and cool,but when u get carjacked,kidnapped,and they send your mother your ear,youll see the eastcoast crowds aint so bad
one more thing.i know theres a lot of stupid kooks on here that probly dont even surf,dont talk shyt about a school massacre where children were killed.if u have kids,u should give them a big hug and kiss right now!!!dont do shyt like that.u wil get ur ass beat partner!
And I'm gutsy enough to confront someone without a gun.
Don't be nieve guys! Mexico with all its violence has very strict gun laws. Our gun laws don't even compare. He should have known better or don't go at all. I would never go down there. Sucks for him!
Jon VOLENTEARED to serve his country knowing that death could be the result of his selflessness. In other words he was willing to DIE for you and I (that includes every person in our government). Jon was willing to go to work and take a couple 50 cal shells to his dome (no more head after one 50 cal shell) or drive by a roadside bomb and get obliterated, for us (me, you, and our beloved Barak Obama). Jon and every other vet have my highest level of respect and gratitude for life.
Mexico and the border area is literally a war zone, yet the American government barely acknowledges it. Rather than dealing with the extortion, kidnapping, drug trafficking, people trafficking, raping and murdering going on in our own back yard we’re busy expending our military in the Middle East.
Barack Obama himself should have escorted Jon out of his cell no more than an hour later. That mother f*cker Barack owes Jon his life since he’s the same dude using Jon’s life like a disposable napkin by throwing him in the middle of a bullsh*t war.
Mexico should have no choice if we say we’re coming to get Jon. He did no harm to anything Mexican nor did he intend to. So if Mexiblow wants beef with USA it’s going to work out in their favor? Not! Our country is now infested with illegal Mexicans and we (not me) welcome them with jobs, anchor baby health care, and many other US CITIZEN amenities. When we visit Mexiblow they welcome us with extortion, robbery, rape, kidnapping, and murder. The Mexican government must be laughing there a*s off at us because it’s a f*cking joke. They must think we’re like some soft little p*ssy hole doormat of a country. We treat illegal Mexicans like human beings and in return they treat Americans like worthless garbage. For some f*cked up reason, US government treats illegal Mexicans with more respect than its own citizens. “Oh but they’re such hard workers” blah blah blah….F*ck you!
Ironically, if the Us government put as much effort into securing our borders as they’re using to keep citizens out of their homes and towns post Sandy there would be no problem at the Mexican border. Seriously.
There was a time when citizens were what this country was made of, now we are secondary at best to a higher piece of sh*t agenda.
HEY USA GOVERNMENT, WAKE UP! ONE OF OUR DEAR SOLDIERS (Jon Hammar) IS IN A MEXICAN PRISON ROTTING AWAY MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY. GET HIM OUT NOW, TODAY, THIS HOUR. YOU OWE Jon Hammar AND YOUR COUNTRY BIG TIME YOU F*CKING WORTHLESS CLOWNS!!!
I’m totally ashamed about our government’s actions or lack of them. Unfortunately for US citizens they are totally shameless.
Best wishes to Jon and his family.
USA Gov, you suck a*s.
Ps there is no point expecting civil behavior from a third world government run by ruthless animals.
Ps again, I'm really crankie lately, sorry, funky times right now.
First post. This Marine (surfer) busted down doors in Fallujah, and patrolled the Helmand Province. Reports are he suffers from PTSD, he's a Marine, he was transporting through a hostile area, and geared himself for it.
No sympathy? He doesn't want it from you, but if you live in the U.S., you sleep well because of his kind.
A poster called him stupid. Have you been where he has? If so, call him as you see him, if not, you have neither the knowledge or experience to judge him.
I pray our government brings this warrior home to his parents and the waves he loves so much.
What world did you grow up in where you don't feel the need to be able to protect yourself or your family? Was it your mommies or maybe your daddies that gave you this false sense of security. You obviously have no value for human life based on your comments whether it be for the 22 kindergarteners, this marine or yourself if you refuse to defend yourself and deny others the right to defend themselves.
You are naive to many things in this world if you think that everything can be solved with a good talking. Many things can be prevented through open communication but when it comes to life and death I want to be at least equal to the guy coming at me, wouldn't you?
Lastly, you've totally derailed this conversation about helping out a young ex-Marine that served our country and shares our passion for surfing and travel. That's the point here. Your tasteless damnation of anything with a trigger hours after so many people lost their lives is a sick and pathetic attempt to try to advance your agenda. Bad timing kid. Mourn for the victims. Pray for the damaged soul that could do this thing. But first get off your soapbox.
