US vs. Brugman Case


The LEOAC is the best source of information when it comes to bad government persecutions by way of prosecutions in what we call the "War on Law Enforcement". As such, we present a case people have heard many things about but have been unable to read and review for themselves until now.

LEOAC with the assistance of Defense Counsel Ron Tonkin, a member of our legal team, has made it possible to present the case of U.S. Government vs USBP Agent Gary Brugman. We thank Mr. Tonkin for providing Mr. Brugman's original trial transcripts and appeal documents (see bottom of page for documents, transcripts, and exclusive footage not available anywhere else).

To summarize, we must note that in reading the transcripts and briefs, Gary Brugman was clearly represented by qualified counsel who had his best interest in mind, unlike Ramos and Compean's original trial counsels and left no questions that the infamous El Paso case screams to have asked. The fact remains Gary Brugman lost though he was innocent, and not at all due to ineffective counsel. This is our view after reading the transcripts and based on our experience in reviewing prosecutions of law enforcement officers by U.S. D.O.J. (Main DOJ) and U.S.A. Field Offices. U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton and his minions used an extremely weak assault charge and put the full weight of the Justice Department behind this prosecution, solely to give the Mexican Government a Border Patrol Agent's scalp. We, at FOBP, always believed Gary Brugman innocent, but reading the transcripts and briefs has cemented it without any doubt.
