U.S. trying to keep Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal out of slain agent's trial

Via avordvet

 

The U.S. government is fighting to keep details of how its own federal gun agents let Mexican drug cartels buy rifles in Arizona illegally out of an upcoming murder trial in which two men will be tried for the killing of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry who died after he ran into men carrying those same illegal guns.

In a court filing Monday, prosecutors are trying to keep some details about the guns found at the slain agent’s murder scene away from the jury.

  1. Why is there so much time passing between the murder of Agent Terry and the trial of the criminals?

    I thought that Amendment VI to our Constitution of the United States guarantees a "speedy and public trial".

    State officials have revealed an 8th person has died following a
    Legionnaires' disease outbreak in western Illinois.

    The Illinois Department of Public Health said that 4 new cases of the
    infectious disease in Quincy were not connected to an outbreak that
    has affected nearly 50 residents at a veterans' home in the city.

    It comes as officials said 95 inmates at San Quentin State Prison in
    California were under observation for the disease.

    Jerrod Welch, Adams County [Illinois] Health Department director, said
    that the 8th victim in Quincy was elderly and had underlying medical
    conditions. He warned that there could be more fatalities because the
    disease has a 2-week incubation period. As of Wednesday [2 Sep 2015],
    49 people have become unwell in the city -- 45 of them at the
    veterans' home.

    Experts at the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) said the outbreaks
    so far this year are not unusual, but the number of cases was larger
    than they typical amount.

    The outbreak in Illinois was identified last week after an initial
    case at the home in early August [2015]. A team from the CDC is at the
    129-year-old home to assist the state investigation.

    Symptoms of Legionnaires' include breathing difficulties, coughing,
    fever and muscle aching. Infected patients are treated with
    antibiotics. It is usually contracted through inhaling bacteria from
    warm water -- including vapour from contaminated water systems.

    Dr Nirav Shah, Illinois public health director, said that officials
    "do not believe there is an increased risk of Legionnaires' disease to
    the Quincy community."

    The home, which has more than 400 residents, has cleaned its hot water
    tanks and air conditioning system and shut down drinking water
    fountains.

    6 inmates at San Quentin State Prison have been confirmed to have the
    disease and are being treated at the medical unit on site. Officials
    have yet to determine the source of the outbreak, but hot evening
    meals have now resumed for inmates and all non-segregated inmates have
    been allowed to have showers.
