Turns out a third American law enforcement officer came close to losing his life thanks to the aborted Holder-Obama gun-running operation known as “Fast and Furious”.
BC15 Investigators have obtained a police report, audio recordings, and photographs of a weapon linked to the Fast and Furious case after it turned up at a crime scene in Maricopa, AZ in March 2010…
According to an Arizona Department of Public Safety police report, members of a special vehicle theft task force were attempting to pull over a truck that had been stolen from Avondale when the driver fled and then pointed a handgun at an officer… According to the police report, the driver, Angel Hernandez-Diaz, also had an AK-47 semi-automatic assault rifle in his possession during the vehicle chase… The AK-47, according to the ATF, is linked to the Fast and Furious case.
…According to the police report, Hernandez-Diaz was attempting to transport the weapon and the vehicle to a drop-off point in the desert…
According to Ofc. Mike Ruiz, an officer involved in the pursuit, Hernandez-Diaz’s vehicle had been disabled by a spike strip when Hernandez-Diaz took off running from the truck… “I saw the suspect bail out of the vehicle,” Ruiz told a DPS investigator during an interview about the incident.
“I pulled up, exited my vehicle, (and) yelled, ‘Police! Stop!” he said, explaining how he followed Hernandez-Diaz around a corner.
“Right as I came around that corner…he was almost down to…almost like crouched but not quite a crouch,” he told the investigator, describing Hernandez-Diaz… “With his gun in the right hand…and he was pointing it right at me,” Ruiz said. “I fired one round off…and I figured he had me.”
…Ruiz’s bullet did not strike Hernandez-Diaz, but the suspect was taken into custody and convicted of possessing two guns that were found inside the stolen truck, stealing the truck, and running from officers.
The gun Hernandez-Diaz was accused of pointing at Ruiz was never found. However police found two weapons inside the stolen truck: the AK-47 and a Beretta pistol…
housands of Holder’s weapons are still unaccounted for.
How many more law enforcement officers and civilians will be killed thanks to Fast and Furious?
That’s a rhetorical question, because the shameful Holder still serves as Attorney General, despite lying to Congress, stonewalling it, and acting as if he is above the law.
It will take a new president to get to Eric Holder.
