To begin, most Americans are aware of investigations into the government action involving selling guns to Mexican thugs. We also know that Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed by one of those guns.
Now, in a remarkable display of government gone amok, the U. S. Attorney’s office in Arizona has taken a position opposing a motion by the Terry family to qualify as crime victims in the eyes of the court.
These motions are usually approved by courts across the land.
In this case, however, U. S. Attorney Dennis Burke argued that because the family was not ” directly or proximately harmed ” by the illegal purchase of the gun used to kill Brian Terry, it does not meet the definition of crime victim.
Our government basically tells us that the family of a murdered man is not proximately harmed. I wonder what they can be thinking as the attorney’s definition of proximity must differ from those we accept as meaningful definitions.
Burke oversaw the operation that may be responsible for many deaths along the Mexican border. That he is still holding his job in light of all that went wrong in this entire operation is enough to bring up questions as to the amake up and moral base of our entire Department of Justice.
It looks like Burke is doing his level best to cover up this entire shameful event and is vainly trying to hide his real function in the Gunwalker mess.
The American people cannot allow this one branch of government to act as it is acting. We still live in a nation of, by and for the people – Eric Holder and his department are not yet a monarchy yet they rule and selectively refuse to investigate cases that need thorough investigation.
We The People are displeased and as we watch what was an orderly system of laws become twisted to suit the whim of this one man. Eric Holder as the top man in all of Justice has positioned himself for a fall that would be greater than the storied fall of Humpty Dumpty.
