Attorneys Robert J. Gorence and Jason Bowles filed a Defendants Reply in Support of Motion for Partial Release of Assets on behalf of clients Rick, Terri and Ryin Reese in the District Court of the United States for the District of New Mexico last Thursday.
Contrary to the governments assertion in its Response the Defendants have met the standard required to qualify for a hearing that a defendant must demonstrate to the court's satisfaction that [he] has no assets, other than those restrained, with which to retain private counsel and provide for [himself] and [his] family, the reply maintains.
Arrested almost two years ago for allegedly knowingly selling guns to cartel members while operating a New Mexico gun store, all Reese family members were found not guilty on the most serious charges of conspiracy. Additionally and significantly, money laundering charges against them were dismissed. Husband Rick, wife Terri and son Ryin were convicted on a handful of lesser charges of making false statements on forms, basically under the presumption that they should have known federal agents were lying. Rick and Ryin were released on bond in February and Terri was released on bond last year. Son Remington was cleared of all charges, and a new trial for the outstanding convictions has been ordered following the judges ruling that the prosecutor withheld evidence from the jury.

Add this to the report on FR’s front page this morning about the DHS holding exercises in Boston a month before the bombing and they used average Americans and Americans wearing Uncle Sam hats as enemy operatives. They spent $200,000.00 doing it. Feel better this morning?
This pisses me off. Law enforcement officers, regardless of department, are legally permitted to lie to anyone to further an investigation. This has been upheld in court cases for decades. Yet, these folks run a shop and generally cater to honest, hard-working American men and women, so when a lying agent comes traipsing through, they're just supposed to know that they were lying federal agents?
So they were supposed to KNOW that they were cops? Wouldn't that have meant the Feds weren't doing their jobs and maintaining opsec? WTF? The legal shenanigans and acrobatics required in the field nowadays are nothing short of criminal in and of themselves.
DOJ + NSA + IRS = KGB.
Welcome to the USSA, comrade.
Now shut up and be a good comrade, or we might send some people out to pay you a visit.
Maybe you got some wood from the wrong country in your garage. We’ll find something.
We’re Obama’s KGB. From the Mainstream Media to the DAs to the judges to the congress, we got all the bases covered. Kapish? Just call us Gangster Government, Inc. It’s the Chicago way.
