HALLORAN and the FBI

Rarely in court do we have a chance to draw the FBI agent in charge of an investigation (unless they are on the stand).  But on Tuesday given the view I had, Agent Holmes was squarely in the picture. Ended up it was an interesting visual contrast. The agent who brought these guys down was front and center though rarely if ever mentioned in the press, even if his name is at the top of the complaint.
