Release Reese family from custody and drop all charges against them

Currently there is a federal case in Dona Ana County, New Mexico against a family from Deming, NM that owned a gun store for over 15 years. All family members, Mom, Dad and two sons (ages 24 and 20) are facing federal gun running charges. It is clear, and the government is not disputing, that at NO time did any member of the REESE FAMILY carry guns across the border. The investigation began when Mrs. Reese reported to the Luna County Sheriff's Dept in August of 2010 that a woman had been purchasing weapons and the matter seemed suspicious. The Sheriff's Dept. referred the information to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (aka BATFE or ATF) who subsequently arrested the woman. THe suspicious woman disclosed to the Federal Government her partner in the gun smuggling operation and both the woman and a man became undercover agents for the Federal Government, returning to the gun store to purchase additional firearms. The appropriate forms were completed and submitted for background check and approval. All paperwork was in order and approved because the Federal Government had created phony identification for the undercover informants and entered it into the system. This information was entered into the Federal Court hearing held in Las Cruces, NM on June 13, 2012 in front of Judge Robert C Brack. This all fits in with the fast and the furious. Our government, allowing arms to be sold into Mexico, partnering with informants, who have admitted to illegal criminal activity, who are Mexican citizens, while arresting and prosecuting American citizens who have owned and operated a successful gun shop in Deming NM for over 15 years. Dad and 2 sons have been incarcerated in several different detention facilities around the state for the last 10 months, beginning August 30, 2011, after being denied bond. Mom was released on bond in March 2012 after being incarcerated for 6 months, beginning August 30, 2011. No member of the family has any criminal record. Trial is scheduled to begin July 16th, 2012.
