Mexican National Pleads Guilty to Murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry

Slain Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
One of five men charged in the 2010 shooting death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry pleaded guilty today to first-degree murder.

Three of the four other people charged in Terry's death -- which has been linked to the "Fast and Furious" operation -- are still fugitives, while another was arrested by Mexican authorities in September.

Manuel Osorio-Arellanes, the man who pleaded guilty to murder today, won't face the death penalty, as part of a plea agreement.

According to that agreement, six men -- including Osorio-Arellanes -- illegally entered the United States with the intent of committing armed robberies against marijuana smugglers, and one member of the group was arrested by Border Patrol agents while the group was going to retrieve their guns. They used weapons that were hidden somewhere in the United States -- a couple of which were eventually linked to the ATF's "gunwalking" operation.

On December 14, 2010, the remaining five men went looking for marijuana smugglers to rob, when they ran into Border Patrol agents.

A firefight ensued, in which Terry died and Osorio-Arellanes was shot and captured at the scene.

The plea doesn't offer any additional information on who Terry's shooter is, or if any of the "Fast and Furious" guns were used to shoot him.

This  case stinks.

According to this, if the group of men were trying to retrieve the weapons when they got arrested,

how did they were able to shoot the officer?. If the guns were hidden elsewhere; did the officers waited untill they retrieved the guns, and then got into a shooting?.Seems to me that there's

something else going on.

Why if, according to the plea, they don't know who the shooter is, how this person is pleading

guilty? And then, all of sudden a couple of guns comes from "fast and furious", could it be a

"ham sandwich" case?,all this comming from repubs. makes me wonder.

JAF, im calling you out. give me access to your forum and lets have at the issues. Starting with Atencio. See, what you dont know, is i have many friends..and they work in interesting places throughout the county and state Govt. I know quite a bit more than you. Its time i spank your little ass like the step child you are and rain down some cold, hard facts....dont bother with an umbrella, it wont help.

Now it's time to give him a taste of his own medicine for killing the agent. How about if our people are sent over to Mexico to shoot and kill his loved ones?  I wonder how he'd feel about that?

he may be a piece of shit, but he's still better than Arpaio and MCSO. when he killed someone, he admitted his guilt

This plea agreement should shut Congressional Republicans up, especially the House Republicans who voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.

 

I just wish the plea agreement told the people more about Fast & Furious.

 @comrade Regardless of how the scenario played out, scumbag shot the agent.  He did it.... he said he did it ... he's guilty so now EXECUTE HIM and be done with him.

 @JoeArpaioFan so by your logic, the braillards, atencios, norbergs and many others should be able to walk into MCSO and start offing cops? they would have the right to torture and kill the cops right? and that would be a taste of MCSO's own medicine

 @danzigsdaddy In looking at his photo it appears that he has a bruised nose and I hope that came from one of terry's fellow coworkers. he's lucky a bruised nose is all he has. I hope that he receives the death penalty.

before you start challenging me on this one YPS, i dont mean all of MCSO, i am refering to the ones involved in Atencio's death and the ones involved in the other deaths too.

 @danzigsdaddy Like I posted on http://therealpenzone.com, Marty Atencio caused his own death.  Nobody is to blame but himself. He paid the price because he was threatening towards deputies. As a result he was tasered and as a result he died of a heart attack.

 @Eleanor_Holguin  @MaskedMagician1967 the local ATF agents were to blame...not Holder. And if the GOP wants to get technical, THEY are the ones trying to make it easier for criminals to get guns via legislation.

 @JoeArpaioFan all your site is, is a bunch of lies put out by you, a self admitted racist and supporter of beating women. you have admitted you believe in beating women and you even openly wear your racism on your sleeve like a badge of honor

 @JoeArpaioFan  @danzigsdaddy lol speaking of getting a clue. I can show a video of Atencio NOT being threatening and aggressive..can you show me one that shows he was?!?! I thought not...

 @david_saint01  thats the problem, if one of them were to be honest....we wouldnt know how to take it

 @danzigsdaddy  @Eleanor_Holguin i like Jerry Lewis and Worsley..cant think of many others right now though lol. (thought it was big of Lewis to admit he voted on the local GOP budget only because he promised to..showed honesty, integrity, something we havent had in many moons)

 @Eleanor_Holguin  @MaskedMagician1967 lol ironically its been going on for years. when it was Bush, the Dems were calling for a hearing (Harriet Miers issue for one)and demanding charges..this time its the opposite. it was all for show, nothing will happen.

 @MaskedMagician1967 Making things so difficult is what made that happen. Trying to hide things (for whatever reason) isn't the best way to handle the situation. Pointing fingers isn't the way. The Feds knew what the locals were doing and they knew for many many years. If he had nothing to hide then why hide it?

 @MaskedMagician1967  @Eleanor_Holguin Issa being in charge was not the way to go..former car thief turned car alarm dealer, who made bias statements against Obama and Holder when he took office, with no investigative experience, and called selected witnesses instead of them all! a report in Fortune showed that the man Issa used as his "whistle blower" was in fact the man responsible for letting the guns "walk" ironically..yet he has left that out..wonder why

david_saint01
david_saint01 topcommenter

 @JoeArpaioFan lol no but he let the guns walk without permission you dumb ass. Have a fucking idea of what you are talking about before you speak..idiot

robert_graham
robert_graham

 @david_saint01 Oh so the local ATF agent's held his hand and made him pull the trigger? I don't think so.  But Holder is responsible for Fast and Furious because he's the Attorney General.  Get a clue.
