Here Come Some Feds
- About 20 additional agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are headed to Chicago, less than two weeks after President Donald Trump threatened to “send in the Feds,” sources told the Chicago Sun-Times.
David Coulson, a spokesman for the Chicago field office of the ATF, said: “We are always seeking to enhance the enforcement efforts of ATF … in conjunction with CPD.”
[...] Sources said about 20 agents will join the Chicago field office, which has a total staff of about 120 and covers the city, the suburbs and northwest Indiana.
There should be a serious federal effort to take gun crimes federal...you know, the way that Obama's Department of Justice completely neglected to do. Serious sentences will put a certain dent in crime, giving lie to the oft repeated refrain of, "We can't arrest our way out of this situation."
Bullshit. You arrest the right people and send em away, you'll sentence your way out of 800 dead this year for starters.
