Notorious firm Blackwater pays millions to escape criminal prosecution!
Outlaw government allows outlaw organization to get away with its crimes.
RALEIGH, North Carolina (PNN) - August 8, 2012 - The notorious private military contracting firm formerly known as Blackwater has agreed to pay a fine of $7.5 million that allows it to avoid prosecution for 17 charges including arms smuggling, marking the end of a five-year federal criminal investigation, according to documents released Tuesday in a Fascist Police States of Amerika District Court in North Carolina.
McClatchy reports, "The plea agreement details numerous times where Blackwater played fast and loose with (laws) governing the export of military goods and ideas."
According to a statement, the investigation found "an array of criminal violations including export and International Emergency Economic Powers Act allegations involving the manufacture and shipment of short-barreled rifles, fully automatic weapons, armored helicopters, armored personnel carriers, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations in both Iraq and Sudan, (and) unlicensed training of foreign nationals and firearms violations."
The Deferred Prosecution Agreement in the deal allows the company to avoid prosecution - in other words, to get away with its criminal acts - only admitting to the actions listed while submitting to a period of supervision during which time "the government acknowledges the company’s efforts to reform its conduct and mitigate the damage caused by that conduct."
