Burboa's 30 year sentence is in line with the sentence handed to Manuel Osorio-Arellanes, the man wounded during the firefight. Osorio-Arellanes faced life but was ultimately sentenced to 30 years in 2012. Jaime Avila, Jr., the Operation Fast and Furious gunbuyer who purchased the two AK-47s found at the murder scene was also sentenced in 2012. He received a 57 month sentence.
ProteinWisdom comments: "Obama’s DOJ quietly gives plea deal to Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry’s murderer."
Obama could not afford to allow this to go to trial and expose his #FastandFurious debacle to defense discovery. So a vicious murderer will eventually walk. For Obama and his ilk, people aren’t really people; they are valued only by their usefulness to The Narrative. Brian Terry was expendable.
