Police chief killed with rifle lost in ATF gun-tracking program

WASHINGTON—A high-powered rifle lost in the ATF’s Fast and Furious controversy was used to kill a Mexican police chief in the state of Jalisco earlier this year, according to internal Department of Justice records, suggesting that weapons from the failed gun-tracking operation have now made it into the hands of violent drug cartels deep inside Mexico.

Luis Lucio Rosales Astorga, the police chief in the city of Hostotipaquillo, was shot to death Jan. 29 when gunmen intercepted his patrol car and opened fire. Also killed was one of his bodyguards. His wife and a second bodyguard were wounded.

Local authorities said eight suspects in their 20s and 30s were arrested after police seized them nearby with a cache of weapons — rifles, grenades, handguns, helmets, bulletproof vests, uniforms and special communications equipment. The area is a hot zone for rival drug gangs, with members of three cartels fighting over turf in the region. SOURCE

Holder - WANTED

I’m pretty sure that if ANY of US has purchased guns ILLEGALLY and let those guns go to Mexico, and if one of OUR guns had been used to kill a Chief of Police, Eric Holder would have NO PROBLEM directing the DOJ to pursue US as MURDERERS.

    There is no question that he is an accomplice from a moral perspective.

    Whether he is legally culpable of being an accessory I am not qualified to say.

  2. Dick Robie says:

    That is not all Holder is guilty of. No one has the huevos to take it on.

  3. Cha-Ching!!! Thats about the size it!!

    We arm the cartels and disarm our law abiding citizens under the rule of Obama and Holder. Time to follow the lead of those in Egypt.

    This moonbat Holder has taken the fruitcake to a new low. In his power-drunken stupor “Fast & Furious” gun smuggling scheme, he got one of the best police chiefs killed in the line of duty. I shall give him the moonbat hall of shame title award that I’ll call the Chief Wiggum! On the other hand, maybe I should call it the Sheriff Dipstick award, after Clancy Dipstick of Tuscon Arizona. At least Clancy Wiggum is a funny screwball on the Simpsons, while Dipstick is a real life 0bamabot buffoon.

    Fred, I hope you don’t mind if I borrow that Holder poster shot…I have a special photoshop “improvement” on my mind for it.

    Treason
    1. A crime that undermines the offender’s government.
    2. Disloyalty by virtue of subversive behavior.
    3. An act of deliberate betrayal.

    1:Undermine: Destroy or hinder normal operations.
    2:Subversive: A radical supporter of Political or Social Revolution.
    3:Betrayal:To cause anguish to a Ally.
    :The Quality of aiding an Enemy.

    I call on all the Military Generals to Remember your Oath and save the citizens from this sinking ship. Some in Congress and lead by Obama have put America in Unbelievable danger. We know Obama thinks the Constitution is fundamentally flawed. What he is doing is deliberately an attempt to crash our economy and move us toward a MARXISM or a TOTALITARIANISM economy.

    Norman Thomas, a U.S. Socialist Party candidate for president, once famously said, “The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” Thomas ran for president six consecutive times from 1928,only to lose to Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Roosevelt introduced most of the planks of the Communist Manifesto and we live with them to this day.

    Every thing Obama does, the things he has said, his Communist parents and his Communist Grandparents in Hawaii, the most Liberal professors Obama could find” the friends he keeps, his hard left czars and Judge’s he has picked, Giving up our gug Rights to the UN and our land to China. He is the leader, but to who’s country?

    My question is this, has Obama and all of the known Marx and Communist believing followers in Government committed Treason? Obama has brought known Communist and Marxist into our Government and given Aide to the Al-Qaeda.

    How can we put them behind bars. Isn’t it time for the Military Generals to mutiny and save the citizens from this sinking ship. I know Obama is the leader of the Military ” MAYBE” It’s everybody’s Constitutional Duty to know who leads us” but lets face it, he MIGHT BE blocking that info. Where are the witness to Benghazi? He is a failure and runs opposite Of God, the Constitution, and the safety of her American citizens. Where are the Generals who are supposed to protect America and her people. Our Government has been taken over by Marxism. The True American has little power to move on this. We need your help. We can Pray for your safety { a lot of us already do} But you do have the biggest guns…
