Re "Governor welcomes president of Mexico" (Page A1, Aug. 27): I am appalled Gov. Brown lied about "just hearing recently about the jailed Marine in Mexico and does not have the facts yet." Has he been living in a cave? I personally was not able to get off the freeway in time, missed the exit and was routed into Juarez. It is just as easy in California, where we should have big signs warning motorists where to exit so as not to have the same plight.

Brown should have manned up and asked the president of Mexico to look into this travesty of justice by now.

In the meantime, both Brown and President Obama have not come to this decorated Marine's defense. I know how most veterans will now vote in the next election due to these so called leaders' silence. This decorated sergeant fought for us and we should fight for him.
