IG report on BATFE disciplinary matters
Just found an Inspector General's report on ATFE disciplinary matters. Major findings:
1. Many problems are not being reported. 47 of a group of 58 that were supposed to be reported to the Justice IG were not. For others, while a demotion or firing was decided upon, there was no record showing that it had actually been done.
2. Of 76 files where the agent was disciplined, 16 contained no documentation at all to show why, and not one showed a report of investigation.
3. ATF rules allow a supervisor to both bring charges and be the judge of those charges, which is done most of the time. It also has no consistent standards, so that each case is a law unto itself.
