    They don't want him to be considered a "victim".

    The Justice Department is afraid they will be held liable for placing the guns in the hands of the men who killed him.

    By definition, how can anyone who intentionally goes into harm's way be classified as victims? That includes the chopper that was shot down in Afghanistan.

    In this case, it's open to interpretation and the feds know it. He is a victim of bad policy and criminal neglect on the part of his employer.

    The question is, would he still be alive if our own government had not intentionally placed weapons in the hands of the drug gangs and murderers that killed him?

    How exactly did the family intentionally put themselves in harms way?
