Fast and Furious III – the bizarko continues.

As we’ve been reporting on previous episodes…”As part of an operation dubbed Fast and Furious, an ATF whistleblower contends at least 1,800 firearms illegally purchased in the U.S. were allowed to “walk” across the border…”

 

Well tonight, Mike has issued a “ten-thirteen” – a police radio call signifying that an officer is in serious trouble.  And Mike is close to a meltdown over this story.

Tonight, we’re rejoined by Bill Conroy from Narco News to go over the latest in the story, and to cover his latest:

US-Backed Programs Supplying the Firepower for Mexico’s Soaring Murder Rate

We also cover this story, provided by Barbara – one of our intrepid listeners – on our Facebook page.

Sinaloa Drug Cartel Controlled and Protected by Both Mexican and U.S. Governments
