U.S. gun smuggler gets 10 years

Written By: Bob - Jan• 10•12

Two charges, ten years.

A Raleigh native and former Marine who pleaded guilty last March to smuggling dozens of pistols from the U.S. to England has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Steven Neal Greenoe will also have three years of probation once he’s released and must use his prison earnings to pay child support for his twin sons, a federal judge ruled Tuesday. He was facing up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine.

In exchange for federal prosecutors dropping 48 other weapons charges against him, he pleaded guilty to one count each of transporting guns outside the U.S. without an export license and falsifying a federal form.

¬†Eric Holder’s Justice Department walked more than 2,000 guns to Mexican drug cartels, violating the very same Arms Export Control Act, not to mention the Kingpin Act, the Whistleblower Protection Act, and more than likely the RICO Act as well, which should result in life sentences for ATF, DEA, FBI, DHS and other government employees at the heart of the plot, far more than Greenloe faces for a deal cut after he was caught smuggling more than 60 guns.
Don’t expect any justice from Justice, however. The guilty are being investigated by their peers, and supported by a corrupt White House.

    When you and I are thought to have committed a crime, the police send an officer who does not know us, take us to a judge who must recuse himself if he’s affiliated with us, to eventually be judged by 12 citizens on a jury that, while are our peers, have no links to us.

    It is against police department proceedure, and a possible legal reverible on appeal element if the police officer who is involved in the case knows me, has worked for me, regularly associates with me or can be linked to me in just about any way.

    Same goes for a judge. A jury member who was a co-worker of the defendant would be summarily dismissed.

    No one votes for their buddy to go to jail. No one votes to put someone in jail if next week it could be them for the same charge.

    The DOJ needs such an outside system and Gunwalker and F&F are prime examples of why.

    I agree, Investigate Fast and Furious and prosecute the guilty. Forget and Justice coming from DOJ….or Obama !
