    Texas: Prosecutor Draws Protests

    Protesters want federal prosecutor out the door

    Even after he put him in prison for more than two years, Gary Brugman doesn't hate Johnny Sutton. But thousands of others across the country feel differently, professing a deep abhorrence for Sutton, the top federal law enforcer in San Antonio as the U.S. attorney for the Western District of Texas.

    Appointed to the job a month after the 9-11 attacks by longtime friend President Bush, Sutton has in recent months become the target of anti-illegal-immigration groups who say he's leading an unjust campaign against law enforcement officers, particularly Border Patrol agents, such as Brugman before he was convicted of using excessive force.

    The most moderate among this hodge-podge group of dissenters would like to see Sutton out of his job. Others have sent him anonymous death threats.

    On Saturday, hundreds of activists are expected to descend on Sutton's San Antonio office to call for the prosecutor's ouster and to demand pardons for officers Sutton has sent to prison.
