More on BP agent Brian Terry
On Fox News.
Confirmation that the gun used to kill Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry came from sales by a dealer cooperating with an ATF investigation. Senate Judiciary Committee is said to be investigating.
It confirms another detail that was being reported on the internet. Understand, Terry was on something like a SWAT team, on an extremely dangerous mission. They were out at night seeking border robbery teams that range into the US to rob entering drug runners. I suppose the only thing more dangerous than encountering a drug cartel team is encountering a gang who robs those teams. Anybody who figures on taking on the Zetas is dangerous indeed.
The claim had been made that the BP team was under orders to attack them with nonlethal bean bag loads, and only to draw real weapons if the perps shot back. Terry's family says in the interview that the other members of the BP team said they shot beanbags at the robbers, who then fired back and killed Agent Terry.
