House Judiciary hearings into BATF storefront ops
Story in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel -- which I won't link because of a particularly annoying and hard to get rid of pop-up ad -- says that House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations will hold hearings on Feb. 27. Justice's Office of Inspector General is also investigating. Targets are four storefront sting operations, one in Milwaukee. In that one BATF lured a mentally retarded young man in, then charged him, they trashed the premises they'd rented, and lost three guns, one a full auto, which have never been recovered.
