Of course Ovomit is silent on this. If it had been a gay muslim drug smuggler, Ovomit would have been all over it. We just need to go and get him. If this jail “belongs to Los Zetas”, wiping them out does double duty.

Jon Hammar faces up to 12 years in a Mexican jail on what may be a trumped-up charge of possessing an illegal shotgun. Customs officials had already cleared the shotgun before he entered Mexico.

He got caught and was put into a Mexican prison. I don’t know the Exact amount of $ that bought him out of prison…but he did get out and put on a plane back to the U.S.
