Justice Dept. Unseals Indictment Charging 5 in Border Patrol Agent Terry's Death
Fox News ^ | 7/9/12 | William La Jeunesse

Posted on 07/09/2012 12:28:04 PM PDT by Nachum

For the first time, federal officials revealed Monday that murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and an elite squad of federal agents first fired bean bags -- not bullets -- at a heavily armed drug cartel crew in the mountains south of Tucson in December 2011.

The announcement came as the Department of Justice unsealed an indictment charging five individuals allegedly involved in Terry's death. A sixth suspect has also been charged in a related incident.

The U.S. is also offering a reward of up to $1 million for information leading to the arrest of four outstanding suspects believed to hiding out in Mexico. The names of the four suspects were revealed, and their pictures released, to the public. Police in the US and in Mexico are cooperating and under intense pressure to find them.

The fact that they armed Agent Terry with a beanbag shooter while they supplied the the folks shooting at him with automatic weapons tells me that DOJ murdered him. They let this happen plain and simple. They should be ashamed.

I remember seeing stories that they were armed with bean bags shortly after Brian Terry was killed. I don’t know if it was speculation, or what the source was, but there is nothing new here—except that the Justice Department is now admitting it.

There are people at DOJ who ought to be shot in the gonads repeatedly with bean bags.

Well, I have followed this story and NEVER heard they used BEAN BAGS, and when the rest of America hears that they were made to only use BEAN BAGS going up against the WORST of the WORST DRUG CARTELS, even some of the STUPID people in America will be revolted.

I thought that several suspects were captured at the time of the shooting and all but one were let go. Somebody can dig that info up.

Bean bags.
/roll-eyes

They should’ve had shoulder-fired missiles and RPGs to take out the drug runners.

Close air support might have been even better.

Since there are no borders anymore, nobody’s sovereignty would be violated, right?

BEAN BAGS: The result of a liberal study where inadvertent collateral damage could be minimized if agents used bean bags.

To further reduced collateral damage, I’m sure there’s a government specification on the size, weight and how long to cook the beans prior to use to limit any possible damage.

LIBERAL LOGIC

Border Patrol agents armed with bean bags

Bean bags = ammunition, must be lethal

Ergo, beans must be outlawed

Wait for it

...leading to the arrest of four outstanding suspects...

For a million bucks, we better get some outstanding suspects. We don't want no mediocre bass turds for that kind of money.

This latest story kind of overwhelms the search, but I found a few earlier stories saying that he was armed with beanbag rounds.

Here’s one, from March 2011:

I agree. I knew about the bean bags for a while and was surprised to hear Fox News say it was new information.

Bean bags because Big Sis Nappy-Pants didn’t want another incident where the BP shot a mexican. Already feeling heat for a BP shooting in El Paso of a mexican throwing rocks at them, Nappy-Pants let politics trump common-sense and the BP “leadership” caved and failed Terry and the Agents.

BORTAC is supposed to be a lot smarter than this, but sadly it looks like the BP leadership forced BORTAC to place the life of mexican drug smugglers, the MOST violent type (the type that rob from the cartels for key-rist sakes) over the life of BP Agents.

Holder and (dirty) Nappy-Pants deserve to be in prison for the murder of Terry.

I hope these guys realize they are going to get caught. They need to call the news media and tell them how Holder is the mastermind behind this whole thing. He wanted Brian Terry killed since he knew too much. These guys were paid by Holder to kill Terry and then shut up. He would then guarantee they would not get in trouble. But they want to tell the truth about Holder since he double-crossed them by indicting them.

“Bean bags.

Next “fast and furious” is to issue beans to the bad guys and keep the guns on this side of the “non-border”.

Bean walkers........
