Jon Hammer, a former U.S. Marine, was going to surf in Costa Rica when he was arrested at the border going into Mexico. He had already cleared his heirloom shotgun with U.S Customs officers and was at the office in Mexico to register it there when he was arrested because it was 1 inch too short for their laws. All they had to do was tell him he could not bring it into Mexico and send him back with an escort to U.S. Custom's side and he would still be free. U.S. Customs should have had Mexican regulations and stopped him there, but they cleared him to go through. He has been held for 5 months and treated inhumanely, under death threats and extortion attempts and his life is in danger.
