Brian Terry, a Border Patrol Agent, former police officer, and Marine Corps veteran was killed "in a gun battle ... with a gang known as a rip crew that preyed on illegal immigrants and drug smugglers who slip across the U.S.-Mexican border in Arizona."  - source

"Two of the ATF “walked” guns ended up at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry south of Tucson." - source

"The Department’s leadership allowed the ATF to implement this flawed strategy, fully aware of what was taking place on the ground.  The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona encouraged and supported every single facet of Fast and Furious." - source (PDF)
The mission of the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona is to:
  • Represent the United States effectively in Criminal and Civil Cases
  • Advocate for the rights of victims and support witnesses throughout the criminal justice process
  • Coordinate the law enforcement efforts of federal, tribal, state and local agencies
  • Provide the best possible working environment for USAO employees
  • Enhance and strengthen the communities we serve
  • Brian Terry’s family statement at ATF Fast and Furious hearing

    If I had to choose who was really working to enhance and strengthen the communities they served, my choice would be Brian Terry.  The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona?  Not so much.
