Eighteen months after Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered in Arizona by Mexican bandits using guns purchased through a U.S. government program called Fast and Furious, we still dont know who within the Department of Justice knew about the program, much less who authorized it.
Certainly there has been no serious talk about prosecuting any of the people responsible for assisting in the illegal sales of over 2,000 guns to Mexican arms traffickers guns that were subsequently involved in the murders of BPA Terry and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata, as well as possibly hundreds of Mexican citizens.
But while that investigation has dragged on, with Attorney General Eric Holder denying knowledge of the program, denying knowledge of who was involved and denying congressional investigators access to tens of thousands of documents that might answer those questions, New Mexico gun dealer Rick Reese and his two sons Ryin and Remington have sat rotting in separate detention centers, jails and prisons around the state accused of a similar crime involving some 30 guns.
The Reese family, including Ricks wife Terri, ran a gun shop in Deming, N.M., and was arrested in late August of 2011 on charges of knowingly selling guns to Mexican smugglers and various other related charges.
After spending 6 months in jail, Terri Reese was finally granted bail in March of this year, but Rick and the boys have been repeatedly denied bail on the pretext that they are flight risks or might try to engage in a Ruby Ridge-type standoff.
The rationale for denying the Reeses constitutional rights is that Rick knows some people in Mexico, his home has a well and solar power and there were guns and ammunition in their homes and businesses when they were arrested.

Under Obama we have a third world dictatorship.
As for Congress, the Democrat half help justify it, and the Republican half is frightened out of it’s wits./
Just recently it came out that a woman purchased 6 guns in one day and Terry (wife) actually called and reported it to local law authorities.
This prosecutor and whoever is directing or supporting him need to be locked up in solitary for about 10 years.
What I can say about this has already been said in my tagline.
Before this is over, the voters will know who is involved. My prediction? The entire leadership of the Democrat Party, including but not limited to, Obama, Hilary Clinton (and possibly Bill), Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, Schumer, Durbin, etc.
I also think the msm knows or suspects much of this already which is why they refuse to cover it. Those who continue to aid the administration are making an enormous mistake; their credibility will be utterly destroyed. So will the Democrat party.
WithHolder should be held w/o bail until the documents are released. Should be treated no differently than George Zimmerman....
