PHOENIX (AP) A Mexican man has been sentenced to 30 years in federal prison in the 2010 killing of a U.S Border Patrol agent that revealed the botched gun-smuggling investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious.
#Manuel Osorio-Arellanes was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty in Flat Rock native Brian Terrys shooting death.

He and Holder should be in the same cell for 30 years.
Yep, but 30 years isn’t enough in my view.
He’ll be out in 15 or less with good behavior.
FBI Criminal Informant Complicit in Brian Terrys Death (PJM Exclusive)
The rip crew was in Peck Canyon that evening with the intention of stealing money and drugs from a specific shipment of which they had prior knowledge.
The rip crew knew to be in Peck Canyon that December evening because a CI working for the FBI found out about a smuggling run from the FBI.
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) through its own CIs and communications intercepts was also aware of the planned assault.
Neither the DEA nor FBI warned Border Patrol about the expected criminal activity.
The federal government will still not reveal if one of the two WASR-10 AK-pattern semi-automatic rifles located near the scene provided to the Sinaloa cartel via Operation Fast and Furious was the weapon that put a bullet through Brian Terrys heart. The existence of a third recovered gun, an SKS carbine, has been disputed by the FBI despite the fact it had been talked about openly in the beginning of the investigation among federal agents.
Multiple sources tell PJM that this third weapon disappeared because it was the weapon carried by the FBI CI who ran the rip crew. When it was recovered near the scene of the murder and subsequently traced by the ATF, it traced back to the FBI CI via the gun shop in Texas where it was purchased.
Brian Terrys murder was entirely preventable. The incompetence of the DEA and FBI let his Border Patrol unit walk into an ambush. After the ambush, it appears the FBI tampered with evidence to cover up that one of their informants was involved with the murder of a federal agent.
Not in a fed slammer unless he’s pardoned, he’ll do at least 85% of sentence.
Including Hillary, Tim Geithner, etc
Amen to that, thanks for your post.
Personally I wouldn’t use the word incompetence. Negligent homicide (if not murder charges) ought to be brought against the ATF, DEA and FBI agents in charge of these ops that lead to Brian Terry’s and Jaime Zapata’s deaths and Holder is now complicit in actively assisting these crimes.
Parole for all practical purposes does not exist in the Federal System.
Short of a Pardon, he’s there for 29 years and six months.
The six month release goes back to the Civil War.
Co - conspirators in the murders of Christopher Stevens, et al still on the loose, too!
The one good thing that comes out of paying for TV access for inmates is that sometimes they reciprocate the favor by taking out the trash for you.
Please, God; let it become a reality.
So this is what a BP agent’s life is worth?
I’ve seen tougher sentences on crimes against LEO’s that didn’t involve their deaths.
Spit...that is what the perp’s life is worth.
This should be the trash taken out by them, for sure.
I hear you and have to believe Obama/Holder is the reason they didn’t go for death, the Mexican government would have had fits and 0bammie couldn’t have that.
I didn’t know that Terry was THAT local. Wonder why I hadn’t heard that before...
DoJ sure messed up that whole border thing and treated those families shabbily, too.
I didn’t know it either and I’ve read quite a lot about it.
You’re right, it’s criminal they way the family has been treated, IMO.
Prayers up for Brian Terry’s family.
May his murderer be miserable in prison.
Has the killer become a hero in Mexico yet with legions of fans calling for his release from the racist American system?
Has Kerry chimed in yet asking for his release?
