    In this Thursday, Dec. 16, 2010 picture, U.S. Border Patrol vehicles drive from a checkpoint, as teams of border officers comb the Arizona desert about 10 miles north of Mexico in search for a suspect in the fatal shooting of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in the rugged terrain in Rio Rico, Ariz. The shooting Tuesday night came after agents spotted suspected bandits known for targeting illegal immigrants along a violent smuggling corridor, National Border Patrol Council President T.J. Bonner said. Terry, 40, was waiting with three other agents when the gunbattle erupted. Terry died in the shooting. None of the other agents were injured. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin)

    In this Wednesday, Dec. 22, 2010 picture, a hearse containing the body of U.S. Border Patrol officer and former U.S. Marine Brian Terry drives past a line of law enforcement officers from various departments lined up along Seven Mile Road outside Greater Grace Temple in northwest Detroit after Terry's funeral service. The ATF is under fire over a Phoenix-based gun-trafficking investigation called "Fast and Furious," in which agents allowed hundreds of guns into the hands of straw purchasers in hopes of making a bigger case. Two of those weapons were found in December at the fatal shooting of the Border Patrol agent, igniting a scandal that has resulted in a congressional investigation and review by the Justice Department's Office of Inspector General.
