United States of InJustice

Here is a terrible story of appalling injustice.  And the worst thing about it is that the agencies involved are the very ones we depend on to make our country worthy:  The Dept. of Justice at the top, which considers itself so beyond reproach that it is totally unaccountable.  Then there is the Department of Homeland Security.  Now there is an agency which should never have existed in the first place. That one is due to the crookedness of the Republicans in Congress when George Bush and his buddies pulled off the 9/11 attack on the WTC.

These are the Umbrella agencies of the Border Patrol which what we are considering here.  A large group of Border Patrol agents murdered a Mexican man, a father of 5 children, and the husband of a Mexican woman.  All of the actions of the officers involved were provocative and all of them conspired to murder a fellow human being.

And they murdered the man in cold blood.

If there were any justice in the world, there would have been a massive investigation by the Department of Justice.  Instead, the DOJ has slammed the door shut on all who seek to discover the truth surrounding this despicable crime.  The video below is almost sickening in what it suggests about the corruption of Border Patrol officers and their bosses and oversight agencies.
