Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s Family Calls for Prosecution

Yeah, I linked this earlier over ATF head resigning. But this is also notable:

Terry was killed last year north of the Mexican border in Arizona after confronting bandits believed to be preying on illegal immigrants. Two weapons found near the scene of the killing were traced to Fast and Furious.

“I was flabbergasted. I couldn’t believe it at first,” Terry’s mother, Josephine, said when she learned the ATF may have let some of the guns used in the attack slip through its fingers. Terry’s relatives said they want all those involved in his killing and who helped put the weapons in their hands to be prosecuted.

“We ask that if a government official made a wrong decision, that they admit their error and take responsibility for his or her actions,” Robert Heyer, Terry’s cousin and family spokesman, said in a hearing last week by the House panel.

    Prosecutions? That’s very optomistic of her. I would be shocked if anything more than some resignations results from this.

  2. Magus Says:

    Resignations? I’ll be surprised if anything more happens than the agents involved get moved to another city, some higher level directors take early retirement, and the politicians find a way to fuck us.

  3. Crotalus Says:

    Feinswine and Upchuck are already trying to fuck us gun owners over this.

  4. ATLien Says:

    Well, Crotalus, then those two need to realize they don’t have secret service protection.

    Who are the widows and orphans of Gunwalker? Let the wrongful death lawsuits begin. Even partial liability can have a dollar amount attached to it. There’s no Fifth Amendment to hide behind in a civil suit, and depositions are made under oath under the penalty of perjury.
    They knew that innocent people were going to be killed, which they dismissed as “breaking eggs to make omlets”, and they didn’t care about such deaths. Maybe they’ll care when they’re sued for those deaths and forced to testify under oath. Maybe they’ll care when they’re found liable and have to pay the relatives of their victims.
    It must suck to be a government agent under the Obama administration – your life is regarded as a disposable, political commodity that your boss wants to trade for some political propaganda. Don’t believe that? Ask Brian Terry.

    That has to be the most fucked up part of Terry’s killing… He was stopping illegals from robbing other illegals with weapons supplied by the BATF….

    Agreed Chas.
    Also, how wide this subterfuge, or active conspiracy, is might only come out in a thorough civil case, especially since it doesn’t look like a special prosecutor will be appointed.

  8. Ron W Says:

    These government officials acting from orders from higher ones were allowing weapons to go to our enemies. That is “giving aid and comfort” to them which is “treason” according to Article III, Section 3 of the Constitution. That is the crime, along with being accomplices to murder, for which these government officials and agents should be be prosecuted.

  9. Lyle Says:

    See, again; the indignation is expected to be over a failure to stop gun sales in the U.S. “How dare you allow guns to be sold at gun stores after passing the background checks!” Be very very careful here, folks.

    The killers are responsible for the killings, the liars are responsible for the lies, and the War On Drugs is responsible for creating powerful, well-funded crime organizations worldwide.

    In fact what we’re seeing are the thoroughly predictable results of the War On Drugs combined with an atrocious immigration policy and the existence of a federal gun police department that’s in league with the anti gun rights movement.

    Who defines the courts as our number-one weapon against terror? Will he still claim so, before a jury, from the dock?
