Agents never told police whether they felt it was a mistake to shout conflicting orders at the couple. But, Stowe said: "I never observed any threat that would have caused for me personally to shoot my weapon. I did not see the passenger make any movements prior to being shot, but at the time the window exploded, I was watching the driver."

Well, it's certainly nice to know that the FBI has cleaned up its act since Ruby Ridge, Waco, and a host of other such travesties. Not. We have another federal agency trampling on the lives, the rights, and the properties of the American people. Quite frankly, I thought it might end with the election of George W. Bush, but it appears that the problems are institutional and are not subject to be easily changed. And the most obvious answer is that the service does not [u]want[/u] to be changed. So we have a group of hooligans with full auto weapons, basically Eagle Scouts on crack, that can assassinate mothers holding their children, incinerate churches full of women and children, and pull a 'Rambo' on a couple coming home from the mall, without so much as a single letter of reprimand in their file! And not even a hint of state criminal prosecution! Tell me that if you did the exact thing that Agent Braga did, you wouldn't be having three hots and a cot at the GrayBar Hotel! Hell, why do we worry about foreign terrorists coming into this country? It appears our domestic terrorists are doing quite nicely in their assumed role as guardians of our most cherished rights. Just so long as those rights don't interfere with their frat-boy high-powered hijinks! Eric The(OtWouldBeFunnyIfItWasn'tSoSerious)Hun[>]:)]

They probably failed to indict simply because the State's District Attorney was simply going through the motions and presented a very favorable case for them to kick out!

The F.B.I. fumbling bunch of idiots. Enough said. Poor guy,dead, wrong place wrong time, seems to be fashionable now for the Law to scream and yell like there on the verge of hysteria, we use to be taught, speak in a loud, firm, command tone voice, now it's a scream fest, with all involved doing it. In general Law Enforcement needs to get it together, they try to act like commandos, or special ops,not cops.And the training they gets proves it, I've been sent to schools ,Federal Schools and they say hostage loss is acceptable if you get the majority out, ok unless your the poor slob, who gets greased.

Did you guys ever wonder how they get away with this shit so many times ? I know why exactly,it's because they never shoot the wrong guy,and by wrong guy i mean they didn't shoot my son or one of my family or yours . If they shoot the wrong guy one of these days they are going to get the wake up call of their lives. If you kill one of mine ,well lets just say that a certain stallone movie comes to mind. If you take away my reasons for living(family) then what do i have to lose,and a man who has nothing to lose and is trained(military)Is a very dangerous person.

You are probably right, beekeeper1. However, I wasn't there when it happened nor have I been present at any of the subsequent hearings. Were you? Was anyone who posts here? I doubt it. Yet everyone is an expert on what they did wrong and how the entire FBI is corrupt and incompetent. Sure, the agents should be held accountable, if necessary. Fortunately, no one here is on the grand jury panel. Everyone warns of loss of rights and so forth but a lot of you guys convicted the agent(s) a long time ago.

Sure, just ask Randy Weavers wife. Oh wait, you can't - she was shot by Federal Agent/Quantico trained sniper Lon Horiuchi in the head while she was holding her baby. Maybe we can ask Weaver's 14 year old son Sammy - oh wait we cant ask him either, he was shot in the back by Federal Agents. Aggie, we arent sitting by our front door waiting for the JBTs to come barging in. But we certainly arent going to rule off every shooting as accidental discharges or mistaken identities either. You forget to remember, those who try these agents have for the most part no experience with firearms and have to take what the shooters claim as fact. I think I read somewhere that the Federal Agent who shot a fella in a drug raid say that the MP5 has a 'hair trigger' - I have a 93 and the trigger pull on that bad boy is about 14 pounds - definitely not what I'd consider a hair trigger. But do the judges/jury know any better?

What difference does it make where I was born? That sort of logic almost deterred me from even reading the rest of your post. I was born in Texas, believe it or not, but I have lived many other places. Does that help? Will I need to enumerate those places to help you nail down my "attitude". Come on, jrzy, I'm not disagreeing with you, just positing some points I think are being missed. Mainly I take issue with the position that if one agent does something wrong that somehow "proves" that all of them are evil and out to get you and me. I guess I picked the wrong thread to try to squeeze that opinion in on.

What has been proven is that, that one agent was wrong, a man is dead, and the worst that might happen is his career advancement may be slowed, and our tax dollars will be paid out in the ensuing law suits.

You all will convict this guy based on the actions of someone else, in another location, years apart. Without knowing any more than 4th hand information. That certainly makes a lot of sense. Using you logic then, I might as well convict Jrzy of murder right off the bat. After all. he just prattled around and stated intent to kill complete strangers. Try this on for my reasons. Jrzy is a gun owner. We all know gun owners are unstable whacko types. Jrzy just stated (in a wordy mealy-mouthed sort of way) that he'd go on a shooting rampage. Obviously Jrzy is obsessed with criminal intent. See "Gun Owner" Jrzy by his own admission, Is "trained Military" (Trained in what is open to question) We all know what fruit loops come out of the military, especially those that own guns. Lastly, and most important, I once (years ago), had a bad experience involving a whacko gun nut from New Jersey. Obviously no one from New Jersey should be allowed to run around loose. If they own guns, they should be locked up and the key thrown away. Can you guys see where I'm going with this? Or is that jerking knee messing with your vision? A Grand Jury cleared him. Now, Grand Juries make good descisions, and bad ones, but that's a topic for a different thread.

Sadly, my Aggie friend, we have [u]all[/u] become experts on how corrupt and incompetent the FBI has become over the years. 'Careerists' are what they've become. They value their career and their pension over what used to be called justice in this country. And it is, indeed, 'the entire FBI' that has been tainted with this disease. Otherwise, we would be hearing from a lot of agents that were resigning in disgust over the general downward trend and the particular acts of gross incompetence, malfeasance, and what can only be described as a contempt for the citzenry they are supposed to serve! Where are the good men and women in the Bureau? Why have we [u]not[/u] heard from them? Where are the articles, the books, interviews, the press conferences, the whistle blowers, etc.? They live in an 'us vs. them' world that would make most Aryan Nation members look positively normal, I do believe![:D] Perhaps it was best summed up in the statement by the behavorial scientist used by the FBI to give a report on the psychology behind those inside the so-called 'compound' - Dr. Alan F. Stone: [b]"When I first was asked to be involved as a member of the panel, I thought the main problem was going to be understanding the psychology of the people inside the compound. [u]But as I got into it I quickly became aware that the psychology of the people outside the compound was more important to an understanding[/u]. They needed to take control and the tactical people in particular needed to show them who's boss."[/b] Yesiree, the tactical people certainly did get to show those nasty Davidians and their innocent children 'who's boss' on April 19th!

So you are saying that shooting an innocent young man in the face is ok to do? I won't say anything about any other events that might have happened, as I don't think they apply. But you think that someone can shoot another person in the face and just get off without any consequences? Oops, I blew your jaw off....sorry about that. I don't care if the FBI agent was a police officer or not. They are held (should be held) to the same level of responsibility as any other citizen. In this case, the asshole shoots a kid in the face and gets away with it. If you shot someone in the face, would you get away with it? Very doubtful. I hope that f!cker gets his ass sued so bad he has to sell his teeth to pay the kid.

Think about this then. If you, as a CHL holder in Texas, shot someone in a similar circumstance would you get the same treatment as this FBI agent. I don't think so. It seems us "civilians" are held to a higher standard than those "entrusted" to "protect" us. As for the arguement that we were not there, so we can't judge. What a crock.

I wouldnt say that ALL federal agents are a-holes. I'll tell you that I've met some puffy chested loudmouth agents that do think they are better than us 'civilians' Putting themselves on a pedestal to look down their noses at those around them. Those are the particular agents I'm concerned about. With the relaxed contraints they now have, I'm certainly leary of whos watching who. Think the 'thin blue line' so to speak doesnt exist - think again. And as for the Ruby Ridge reference JohninAustin - damn right - what agency punishment did Horuichi receive? - nothing. Lets see if any of us ever make a 'mistake' in the defense of even our own homes. Maybe in Texas, but here in NY, I'm not 'allowed' to shoot at an home intruder even if hes got MY stuff in his hands. The SOB can walk out of my house with whatever he wants unless I have been threatened. God forbid I put a slug in him....then I'm open to being sued by his family. Now, is the federal agent who plugged the victim in the head feeling threatened, or by Randy Weavers wife? Gimme an f'n break.

Please point out the statements that advocate killing all federal agents. Please also point out the statement that claims every federal agent is a freak/maniac?

Ten? Fifty? A thousand?

I'll leave it to you to decide the merits of indicting the FBI agent. -The FBI was attempting to locate and apprehend bank robbers reportedly driving a car similar in color to the one the agent shot up. They did not have a good description of the car. -The exact number and gender of the [real] perps was unknown. -The male victim was riding in the passenger seat. His fiance was driving. -The agents, then riding in an FBI car, approached the girl's car from the left rear side, while both vehicles were in motion. -The FBI agents apparently tried to identify themselves and ordered the victim's car to pull over. The victim and his fiance stated they saw the agents yelling at them and believed them to criminals, possibly carjackers. Unknown whether or not the victims' car windows were up or down. -When the agents' instructions were not followed, the agent in the passenger seat fired his rifle into the car in which the victim was riding. The male passenger was struck in the face by at least one round from the .223cal carbine the agent was firing. (I believe I heard the agent fired at least one or two three-round bursts...but I can't recall.) -Attending physicians stated that the kid would live but would require years of reconstructive surgery to repair his facial structure, including jaws and teeth blown apart by the rifle rounds. -The agent later claimed that he thought the victim was reaching for a weapon. The victim stated he was trying to unlatch his seatbelt. Imagine if one of us had done what that FBI agent did...do you for one second think we would not be (1) room temp...or, (2) a long term resident of a penal institution? Strictly from a gun safety standpoint: Where did the rest of the rounds go? How many folks were put at risk by this agent capping off bursts of .223 from his rifle? I think the assault occurred in a suburban area. BTW...that agent has a "Robocop" track record. Can't remember the details right now but I seem to remember he had been in another shooting that got him disciplined. We don't know the "full story" but the FBI has a terrible record in the last few years of shooting citizens that don't roll over for them. I'm not about to indict the entire force...but they would do well to go public with all the details of this and other shootings. The FBI should also fire and prosecute those agents who commit crimes against their fellow citizens...not cover their six. This smells bad. Regardless of what the grand jury did...it still smells.

Ok, let's try one more time. Someone please give me a DIRECT link between this shooting and Waco/Ruby ridge. Please give me a DIRECT link between this shooting and flush toilets. Someone please give me a DIRECT quote where I said this guy was not culpable. I'll save you the effort. There isn't one. Let me try this one more time. This is a stand alone event. It has nothing to do with "Evil Govt". Govt cannot be good or evil. it is a object. Now, the people in it can be either good or evil, but label them all "Evil" simply because their paycheck comes from the same place is stupid. As for the CHL/LEO stuff, I can point out cases I was personally involved in where a CHL holder followed a unarmed car burglar, (of someone else's car) for three blocks and then shot him in the back three times with a .380. I can also point out the shooting of two unarmed people in a cab by a CHL holder. They got off. The lawyers used many of the same methods you all are currently condemming. Jrzy, You implied that you would kill police/govt employees. I call that a "rampage" Perhaps "Murder" or "Jihad" is more to your liking? You know, I'm following this exact debate on another board. We're up to page 4. No one has mentioned Waco, No one has brought up "Evil govt" or flush toilets. No one is boasting of "military training" and Rambo fantasies, and no one has been invited to New Jersey. Currently it's almost universal condemnation of the agents actions, and the discussion is now centering around deadly force policy. Imagine that. An internet discussion involving issues actually related to the case. That is most likely due to the fact it's a Police gun board.
