Note: Fast & Furious - Mexican Lives didn't Matter.

Also: . "catch trafficking kingpins"? Sure, just like in the movies.
Given the people behind the scheme, it strongly believed that the real motive was to attack 2nd Amendment Rights and restore the semiautomatic rifle ban.
Those behind the scheme have yet to face justice. But then, Mexican Lives didn't Matter.

PHOENIX — A man who allegedly shot and killed a Border Patrol agent in Arizona several years ago was reportedly arrested in Mexico on Wednesday.

Fox News reported Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes was captured on a ranch on the border of Mexican states Sinaloa and Chihuahua.

Officials believe Osorio-Arellanes was the gunman who killed Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in 2010. A $250,000 reward was being offered for information in the case.

Two other men, Ivan Soto-Barraza and Jesus Leonel Sanchez-Meza, were found guilty of Terry's murder in 2015, though it was still thought Osorio-Arellanes killed Terry.

The three men were working as part of a rip crew that robs drug smugglers along the U.S.-Mexico border when they ran into Terry's patrol. A shootout ensued and Terry was killed.

One of the rip crew members was injured. That man was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Osorio-Arellanes allegedly used a gun that was supplied by the U.S. government in a failed gun-tracking operation.

Operation Fast and Furious, the gun-smuggling effort, was launched in 2009 to catch trafficking kingpins, but federal agents lost track of about 1,400 of the more than 2,000 weapons — including AK-47s and other high-powered assault rifles.

Two of the guns purchased illegally with the government's knowledge were found at the site where Terry was killed near Nogales in 2010.
