Seven years ago, U.S Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was shot and killed by Mexican bandits.
He was on patrol in southern Arizona.
He was out with a group of fellow agents searching for “rip crews.”
Rip crews are group of Mexican bandits that prey on drug smugglers and illegal aliens crossing the border in the region. Seven years later, Terry’s family is still waiting for answers for not only what happened that night, but the circumstances leading up to Brian’s murder that became known as Operation Fast and Furious.
According to our source, USA Politics Today, the guy suspected of shooting and killing Brian Terry, with a gun supplied by Eric Holder and Barack Obama, was arrested in Mexico on Wednesday. Heraclio Osorio- Arellanes, was apprehended by a joint U.S.-Mexico law enforcement task force that included the Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Marshals and the Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC).
Brian’s death exposed Obama’s Operation Fast and Furious, a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) operation, in which the federal government allowed criminals to buy guns in Phoenix-area shops with intentions of tracking them once they made their way to Mexico.
Four members of the “rip crew” have been sentenced to jail time in the United States, Manual Osorio-Arellanes was sentenced to thirty years in federal prison after pleading guilty to first-degree murder in February, 2014. In October, 2015, Ivan Soto-Barraza and Jesus Sanchez-Meza were convicted by a federal jury of nine different charges, including first-degree murder and attempted armed robbery.
“I wanted to take a minute and thank everyone who supports the Terry family in getting justice for Brian,” Kent Terry said. “It means a lot to me and my family. It is greatly appreciated.”
“Brian wrote a poem that described how he lived his life. It is titled, ‘If Today is to be the Day… So Be It.’ It saddens me that we still don’t have answers for, or accountability for, Brian’s senseless death,” Kent continued. “A death caused by the ATF and other agencies.”
“Brian deserves better,” he stated. “He did spill his blood on this soil protecting Americans. Now that documents are out, I expect Congress to follow Brian’s poem and let ‘Today be the Day’ they respect him and give him answers he so well deserves.”
