Fast and Furious continued…

Fast and Furious continued…

Just in case you thought the “Fast and Furious” case was all wrapped up.

A man who bought two weapons found at the scene of  Border Patrol [Agent Brian Terry’s] killing and subsequently linked to the botched gun-trafficking investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious was sentenced here on Wednesday to 57 months in federal prison, closing another chapter in a case that ignited a political firestorm.

The man, Jaime Avila Jr., bought 52 guns over several months, including powerful assault and sniper rifles…

[Agent Brian Terry’s] death prompted whistle-blowers to reveal the origin of the guns and the nature of the failed investigation, which became the subject of contentious Congressional hearings and a scathing report by the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz. He blamed a group of Arizona-based federal prosecutors and A.T.F. agents for the failures. Last week, a disciplinary panel recommended the firing of four senior A.T.F. managers involved in the operation. (credit New York Times)
