ATF Using Mentally Disabled Teens To Run Drug-and-Gun Stings

 

 

 

 

 

” If you thought the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) couldn’t stoop any lower, you’d be wrong. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the agency responsible for setting off the events that led to Waco and were at the center of the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal are using mentally disabled teenagers to advertise businesses that are actually fronts for ATF sting operations.

  Earlier this year, when the Journal Sentinel reported on an ATF sting operation in Milwaukee involving a “low IQ” informant, authorities wrote it off as an isolated act of rogue agents. The Journal Sentinel documents at least half-a-dozen stings from around the country that use the same “rogue” tactics of creating fake storefronts and using low IQ people to set stings in cities such as Pensacola, Florida, Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Wichita, Kansas.”

 

    How convenient … everything wrong with State actions is attributed to the actions of “a few rogue agents” when in reality we are being oppressed by a rogue government . What sort of moral depravity encourages the “authorities” to enlist the mentally impaired as their stooges ? Fast & Furious was blamed on a few rogue agents as is the IRS/Tea Party scandal , the Secret Service hooker scandal . 

    Every time there is a scandal in the Obama administration it is blamed on “a few rogue agents” . Apparently in this White House the buck stops , oh I don’t know , oh yeah , over there . There is no assumption of responsibility at all in Obamaworld … everything is someone else’s fault . If this is the best kind of leadership and oversight we can expect from Dear Leader and his merry band of Chicago thugs we’d be better off without any president at all . 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

500 Murders In Chicago Show Gun Bans Don’t Work

 

 

 

 

” Guns: The mayor of what is at once America’s most gun-controlled city and its murder capital wants an assault weapons ban like the one he pushed in 1994. Except it didn’t work then, and it won’t work now.

Nathaniel T. Jackson, 40, an alleged gang member with a long arrest record, was gunned down last week outside a store in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood, becoming the Windy City’s 500th murder victim in 2012.

Up to 80% of Chicago’s murders and shootings are gang-related, according to police. By one estimate, the city has almost 70,000 gang members. A police audit last spring identified 59 gangs and 625 factions; most were on the South and West sides.

Yet, in the view of Chicago’s mayor and former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, the answer to violence by crazies and criminals in his city and nationally is more gun control, not more gang and goon control. “

No Measurable Effect

 

” Statistics compiled by a Northeastern University professor, the Census Bureau and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel show the number of mass shootings and victims from 1976 to 2010 has fluctuated annually, but without any major upward or downward trend.

Some 2,956 people have been killed in 646 mass shootings over this 35-year period, with a mass shooting defined by the FBI as one in which four or more people (not including the shooter) are killed in a single incident and typically in a single location. FBI homicide data show no discernible trend in the number of mass shootings or victims during that time.

A chart using these data and published in the Journal Sentinel does show that while the Clinton/Emanuel assault weapons ban was in place, from 1994 to 2004, mass shootings actually rose slightly and that after its repeal there was no precipitous rise, as supporters had warned. “
