Operation Gunwalker: strong opinions forcefully expressed
On a thread at CleanupATF.org, they have a long "clarifying letter" from Bill Newell, one of the supervisors of the operation, and an agent's response:
"ill Newell you are a lying coward. This letter was written not to clarify anything you lied about but to attempt to avoid an indictment. You repeated your lame justifications and made excuses, the same thing you have done since the day you set foot in ATF. You lied to Congress and you are trying to cover your lies by calling the Whistleblowers, Gil and Canino liars. You are a 100% chickenshit.
You are a whiny little bitch to actually compose a letter to Congress after you lied to their faces and blame your lies the the "pressure" you feel and that this is "unlike anything you have ever experienced". You are pathetic to say that this experience has taken a toll on your health and family.
What about the toll on Brian Terry's family? What about the toll's on the hundreds of dead Mexican citizens and their families? All you ever have or ever will care about is you. You are one self-centered m_ _ _ _ _ rf _ _ _ _ r.
Here is where I am going to get off and probably be deleted. My friend is Jay Dobyns. Newell you are quite possibly the biggest hypocritical pussy ever in ATF to make the statements that you made in your letter knowing what you did to him and his family. You helped your boys Gillett and Higman go above and beyond to try and frame him as an arsonsist and attempted murder. You turned your back just like you did in Fast and Furious. I don't have the vocabulary to state what a double-standard POS you are. You think Dobyns felt pressure living under the allegation that he tried to murder his family for the last three years? How about the toll on his family have to hear that their husband and father intended to burn their house down on them and murder them? Then you lied under oath in that case too.
Don't bother to appologize. Whatever it is that happens to you, it is not evil enough to balance what you have done. Rot in hell."
Something rings wrong for me when "pressure" and/or "it's taken a toll on my health and family" appear connected to a justification or mitigation of one's dishonesty.
It really rankles when a LEO starts talking this way. It seems in a moderately honorable world, LEO's should be about the last to sail into those safe harbors.
Maybe this is what our modern culture has become, less than moderately honorable.
