28 year old Chauncey Wright, brain damaged, with an IQ in the 50s, had trouble holding a job. Seeing some men handing out flyers at a Walmart parking lot, Wright asked if they needed a helper. Soon, Wright found himself handing out flyers on his bike, eventually procuring drugs and firearms for his employers. And inidicted on several drug and gun charges after finding out his employers were undercover ATF officers running a sting operation in a curious Milwaukee storefront
. During which the storefront was burgled, damaged, the owner stiffed on repair costs, and several guns stolen from ATF vehicles, including a machine gun that has yet to be recovered.
This wasn't an isolated incident.
From Portland to Pensacola, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
finds that the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives repeated several sting operations across the country with very similar tactics: recruit suggestible, mentally disabled people in the pursuit of their law enforcement mission, opening dodgy storefronts in safe zones near churches and schools, lure underage kids with video games, alcohol and marijuana, letting felons walk away with firearms, dealing in stolen goods, shoddy law enforcement, and overall ethically questionable behavior.
