Guilty pleas in Fast and Furious
Three defendants plead out. Jaime Avila Jr."faces up to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to dealing guns without a federal license and conspiracy to deal guns without a license, making false statements in a gun purchase and smuggling goods out of the U.S."
So much for the US Attorney's instructions to ATF during the operation that there was no probable cause to arrest since each gun purchase must be assessed on its own, without regard to others, so twenty gun buys followed by the twenty guns being found in Mexico proves nothing -- analyzed individually, one purchase followed by the gun being found in Mexico wouldn't give probably cause, since it might have been stolen, and twenty repetitions of this would prove no more.
Why not the AG himself? Or his boss? The ones at the top who gave the orders to start all this should be prosecuted as well.
