Justice comes slowly, but it does appear to be coming.
Lee Franklin Booth, the convicted felon in Greensboro, NC that has outstanding warrants out for his arrest and alleged involvement in three gun companies despite a kidnapping conviction, has now been outed as a confidential informant (CI) for the federal government.
The decision to reveal Mr. Booth’s status did not come lightly or without deliberation. I’ve known of his status for several weeks, and have given thoughtful consideration to what outing an informant may mean. At the end of the day, however, it kept coming back to one thing.
Booth appears to have made a pattern of abusing his protected status as a federal CI.
He has threatened people (which is why he has warrants out for his arrest). He has allegedly ruined the lives of hundreds if you believe as some do that he played a role in the demise of Pace Airlines. I have witnessed his attempts to ruin the lives of other people, apparently purely out of spite.
And he has allegedly done all this, using his status as a CI to halt investigations into his allegedly criminal activity.
Well, he is of no use to the feds now, and so his protected status should soon be revoked. When that happens, one can only assume that the various investigators that have wanted a piece of Mr. Booth’s hide nailed to the wall will descend upon him with search warrants in-hand.
Considering how he has abused others, I’ll feel very little pity for him when justice comes a calling.
