On December 14, Border Officer Brian Terry lost his life in a shoot out with illegal Mexican aliens he was attempting to stop from sneaking into our country. Since then we have seen the Bureau of Alcohol Firearms and Tobacco (BATF) work overtime to keep us from learning that the guns involved in the crime, the guns with Mexican drug cartel fingerprints on them, were likely part of Project Gunrunner, an insane idea dreamed up by some fool in the BATF that would allow known Mexican drug gang members to slip over our border, legally buy guns, and take them back to their bosses in Mexico.
Thereafter this foolhardy plan called for using the trail of these guns as a way to trace them to Mexico’s drug kingpins and build a “solid” case against them. Such stupidity has rarely been seen, even in government work.
Somebody is responsible for allowing the gun used to shoot and kill Agent Terry and that someone’s head should roll.
Worse than this, it is reliably reported that Agent Terry was forced to stand his ground with just a shotgun that shot bean bags!
Now we get news that is still worse. The federal courts have sealed the arrest and court records of an illegal alien who was shot and wounded at the scene while in possession of a firearm. Nowhere is there any reference to him being even arrested, in spite of his obvious culpability in the murder of an American Border agent!
Incredibly, the man told the FBI he did have a weapon and did raise it, but declined to fire because he recognized he was in a confrontation with American federal agents.
Why then wasn’t this man made to stand trial as an accomplice to Terry’s murder? According to the generally accepted legal description, “An accomplice is someone who knowingly, voluntarily, and with common interest, participates in the commission of a crime, and can be charged with the same crime(s) for which the accused will be tried.”
Why has the BATF worked so hard to hide the truth about the murder of Border Agent Brian Terry an American doing his duty to keep our nation free of vermin like this?
