Corruption - A low level gun runner goes to jail while the scum in government like Eric Holder that ordered "Fast and Furious" are always protected.
A General Rule of Life: Be it the crooked government backed home loans that crushed the economy or Fast and Furious, the liar political hacks always protect their own and think you are a fucking idiot.
Considering they keep getting away with things they must be right about the average American.
A judge sentences Jaime Avila Jr. to 57 months in prison for buying arms for a Mexican drug cartel that were found at the scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry's slaying.
A Federal judge sentenced a Phoenix man Wednesday to nearly five years in prison for purchasing firearms for a Mexican drug cartel, triggering a chain of events that included the death of an elite Border Patrol agent and the unraveling of the failed federal gun-tracking operation called Fast and Furious.
Jaime Avila Jr., 25, was a "straw purchaser" of the firearms for the cartel, and his purchases included two rifles found at the scene of the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry, who was killed two years ago this week in the desert south of Tucson reports the Los Angeles Times.

Democrats sent guns across the border to the drug cartels to kill Mexicans
and the media covers up this racist attack on our neighbors.
Avila purchased 52 firearms over 10 months. Judge James A. Teilborg sentenced Avila to 57 months in prison for what he called running "weapons of war." Avila struck a deal with the federal government and pleaded guilty to a variety of weapons charges.
Avila was one of about 20 straw buyers that were the focus of Fast and Furious, an investigation conducted by the Phoenix office of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The investigation allowed weapons to be illegally sold in the United States so they could later be tracked across the border to Mexican drug cartels. The intent was to arrest cartel leaders, but most of the firearms disappeared. The program eventually was shut down.
On Jan. 16, 2010, Avila walked into the Lone Wolf Gun Club in Glendale, Ariz., and illegally purchased three rifles, plopping down $1,500 in cash. Nearly a year later, two of the weapons were found in a desolate section of the Arizona desert after they were dropped by the men who are suspected of killing Terry on Dec. 14, 2010.
