VIDEO: Men Found Guilty of Killing Border Patrol Agent Terry

A Tucson, Ariz., jury has found two men guilty of murder in the killing of a U.S. Border Patrol agent whose death exposed the botched federal operation known as Fast and Furious.

The jury found Jesus Leonel Sanchez-Meza and Ivan Soto-Barraza guilty of all counts.  Sanchez-Meza and Soto-Barraza were part of a five-man crew that planned on robbing drug smugglers when they encountered Agent Brian Terry and three others on Dec. 14, 2010.

A gunfight ensued, and Terry died of a single gunshot wound. Two guns found at the scene were part of the Fast and Furious operation, Fox 10 Phoenix reports.

Agent Terry did his job and paid the ultimate price to keep us safe. The jury did their job and convicted the killers. Can anyone tell me what happened to those responsible for the botched fast and furious program that ultimately took Terry's life?

Now how about trying Holder and those in his former department what allowed the weapon that killed this hero to get in the hands of illegals.

They get death! Even if they were in the country illegally they should still be eligible for the death penalty, after all according to the administration they are eligible for every thing else the country has to offer.

Good result after a terrible situation. Now lets put those responsible for the weapon used being in the hands of the murderers, the DEA agents who perpatrated "fast & furious". Lets get DOJ to finish the job and find out who was responsible, who ordered it to take place and who covered it up and put them all on trial. That would be true justice for Officer Terry, his family and all citizens concerned with a rouge administration that appears to be above the law. All of you LEOs out there know Im right and that heads should have rolled over this program and have not, and we know the reason why, we have a politicized DOJ who are covering their own asses instead of doing the right thing. I am ashamed for the agents who know what happened, know who is responsible yet don't do the right thing and come forward because they worry about their own careers. Well you are unprofessional cowereds who do not have the right to be called Law Enforcement Officers due to your lack of moral justice.

Yet nothing happened to Eric Holder or anyone else that set this "operation" into motion. Sure, there was the Congressional hearing about it but it ended up being a smoke and mirror act like all of the other ones do. The plan was to put guns from the US into Mexico and then get them "seized" by the US so it could be used to show that the gun problem was the US. When it backfired, the statement for this ever being done was that it was an operation, where the guns were being electronically tracked or watched by agents. What a crock. This incident was one of the earliest ones that showed the intent of this presidency to go after guns yet do nothing to the criminals. This incident and the growing problem of illegals and emboldening the criminals have made law enforcement the hardest I have seen in my 25 years. Waiting on January 20, 2017, maybe that will start real hope and change.
