Mary Chastain at Big Government previews Univision’s explosive new investigative report on Fast & Furious.
Tomorrow, September 30, Univision will be airing “Aqui y Ahora” (Here and Now) about Fast & Furious. It will document the people who lost their lives because of this program. Univision’s investigative unit found many more deaths linked to Fast & Furious and will talk about them during the special, including the killing of 16 young people at a party.
The most well known Mexican victim is Mario Gonzalez Rodriguez, a prominent Chihuahua City lawyer. His sister was Patricia Gonzalez Rodriguez, who at the time was the Attorney General of Chihuahua. His body was found in a shallow grave on November 5, 2010. A few days later, the police had a shoot out with cartel members and seized sixteen weapons. Two of the AK-47s were linked to Fast & Furious.
2,000 guns were walked and hundreds are still missing. Recently, 200 showed up in Colombia. Univision notes that other guns have been found in Puerto Rico and Honduras.
