From the story: The informant, Ryan Logsdon, and former ATF agent Brandon McFadden testified in a recent police trial that they framed the Barneses with the help of Officer Jeff Henderson.
I bet the back-story is fascinating. What leverage was brought to bear to make crooked LEO (including an ATF Agent, sorry for the redundancy) admit that they targeted Citizens for false arrest & prison sentences…
The front-story is enough to make one spit…well, folks like you & me, anyway. The average American will never know this story, how routine it is, and they would not believe it if God Himself told them it was true.
We all comfort ourselves that soon, one day, it’s coming.
That’s probably accurate.
But here is something else I know to be a fact: If I go first, noone will follow, and most people will never know the truth, or care. Patriots will shake their heads and say too soon or he was a jerk, anyway.
I wonder how long John Parker gritted his teeth before going to the Green. I wonder how many of his neighbors didn’t follow him…you’ll notice that we do not know any of their names.
