ATF uses rogue tactics in storefront stings across the nation. Including Milwaukee

I encourage you to read the full story at the link below this post. Good read!

"ATF agents befriended mentally disabled people to drum up business and later arrested them in at least four cities in addition to Milwaukee..."

 "As they did in Milwaukee, agents in other cities offered sky-high prices for guns, leading suspects to buy firearms at stores and turn around and sell them to undercover agents for a quick profit. In other stings, agents ran fake pawnshops and readily bought stolen items, such as electronics and bikes — no questions asked — spurring burglaries and theft..."

" Problems with storefront stings surfaced publicly earlier this year when the Journal Sentinel followed up on a tip from a Milwaukee landlord that the ATF had damaged his building and left behind sensitive documents revealing details about undercover agents and their operation."

"The newspaper's investigation found the operation, dubbed Fearless Distributing, was marred by far more than the landlord knew. A machine gun and other weapons had been stolen from an agent's car, the storefront was burglarized, agents arrested the wrong people and hired the brain-damaged man, who had an IQ of 54, to set up gun and drug deals.

The machine gun has not been recovered."

 "To say this is just a few people, a few bad apples, I don't buy it," said David Harris, a professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and an expert on law enforcement tactics and regulation. 

"If your agency is in good shape with policy, training, supervision and accountability, the bad apples will not be able to take things to this level. 

"There is enough crime out there, why do you have to manufacture it?" said Jeff Griffith, a lawyer for a defendant in Wichita. "You are really creating crime, which then you are prosecuting. You wonder where the moral high ground is in this."

"In Milwaukee, agents let a felon with a violent history leave their undercover store armed with a gun, saying he needed it for retaliation."

Missing Milwaukee girl Alexis Patterson father pleads not guilty to abusing his other daughter

"Kenya Campbell has pleaded not guilty to breaking the jaw of his eight month old daughter, among other serious injuries.

He is the biological father of Alexis Patterson who went missing in 2002."

 The infant is the victim of abusive head trauma, "a massive, violent assault that could have easily resulted in death."
  • Large fracture of the lower jaw. This type of fracture occurs with massive trauma to the face and jaw. Dr. Swenson says, "Injury events with sufficient force to cause a mandible fracture would be extremely painful and carry significant risk of causing brain injury, bleeding on the surface of the brain, or even death."
  • Severe abdominal injuries resulting in liver laceration and adrenal hemorrhage. Dr. Swenson says "The force required for such injuries is massive and involves focal intrusion, such as a violent blow from a fist or foot."
  • Acute fracture of the infant's seventh rib, which is commonly caused by violent squeezing or a direct blow to the thorax." 
Kenya Campbell has not been considered a suspect in Alexis Patterson's disappearance.
