    FAMILY OF SLAIN BORDER AGENT BRIAN TERRY SUES FEDERAL OFFICIALS OVER ‘FAST AND FURIOU

    FAMILY OF SLAIN BORDER AGENT BRIAN TERRY SUES FEDERAL OFFICIALS OVER ‘FAST AND FURIOUS’

    PHOENIX (TheBlaze/AP) — The family of a slain Border Patrol agent has sued federal officials over the botched “Fast and Furious” gun operation.

    Agent Brian Terry was mortally wounded on Dec. 14, 2010, in a firefight north of the Arizona-Mexico border between U.S. agents and five men who had sneaked into the country to rob marijuana smugglers.

    Federal authorities conducting “Fast and Furious” have faced tough criticism for allowing suspected straw gun buyers for a smuggling ring to walk away from gun shops in Arizona with weapons, rather than arrest them and seize weapons. Further, there were no solid tracking mechanisms to trace the guns once they crossed into Mexico.

    The lawsuit filed Thursday and made publicly available on Friday came from Terry’s parents against six managers and investigators for the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

    The family also sued a federal prosecutor who had previously handled the case but is no longer on it, and the owner of the gun store where two rifles found in the firefight’s aftermath were bought.

    The family alleges that the ATF officials and federal prosecutor created a risk to law enforcement officers such as Terry and that the firearms agents should have known their actions would lead to injuries and deaths to civilians and police officers in America and Mexico.


    This Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2011 picture shows part of a cache of seized weapons displayed at a news conference in Phoenix. The ATF is under fire over a Phoenix-based gun-trafficking investigation called “Fast and Furious,” in which agents allowed hundreds of guns into the hands of straw purchasers in hopes of making a bigger case. Two of those weapons were found in December at the fatal shooting of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, igniting a scandal that has resulted in a congressional investigation and review by the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General.

    The family also alleged that firearms agents and the prosecutor sought to cover up the link between Terry’s death and the botched gun smuggling investigation.

    The “Fast and Furious” operation was launched in 2009 to catch trafficking kingpins, but agents lost track of about 1,400 of the more than 2,000 weapons involved.

    Authorities say the ring was believed to have supplied the Sinaloa cartel with guns. Mexico’s drug cartels often seek out guns in the U.S. because gun laws in Mexico are more restrictive than in the U.S.

    Some guns purchased by the ring were later found at crime scenes in Mexico and the United States.

    The probe’s failures were revealed – and later examined in congressional inquiries.

    So far, 15 of the 20 people charged in the gun smuggling case have pleaded guilty to charges.

    Authorities have a separate case pending in federal court in Tucson against five men charged with murder in Terry’s death.

    So far, one man has pleaded guilty to first-degree murder. Of the five men accused in Terry’s killing, two are in custody, and three others remain fugitives.

    70,000 Mexicans are Grave Yard Dead

    2 Border Patrol Agents are Grave Yard Dead

    Americans are now being killed by Fast & Furious Guns and NO ONE is In Prison for Giving 2,000 + Assault / Sniper Rifles to Drug Cartels who are the Worst of the Worst

    Family of Brian Terry Sues Officials <--- LINK

    let me say this again.. there is NO Law Authorizing Gun Running 2,000+ Assault / Sniper Rifles to Mexico

    thats 2,000+ Of Which EACH is a FELONY

    Tax Payers are NOT Paying for CRIMINAL Activities

    Those individuals that did the crime need to have their assets SIEZED to cover any payout to the Brian Terry Family

    that Includes Obama ... take his money; that Includes Holder ... take His Money

    Nor are we paying any settlement to the 70,000 Mexicans that have been slaughtered by Obama and Holder
