ATF trouble in Reno

Seems ATF is having a hard time getting it’s cases prosecuted in Reno. And the agents are leaving.

Good.

Seems the agency has unresolved “issues” and the US Attorney isn’t a fan.

    Even federal prosecutors must follow lawyer standards. Which include not bringing a case based on perjury or falsified evidence. Good for the Reno UASA lady.

    Joke line of the article:

    “Northern Nevada has lost a critical law enforcement agency,” Diaz said. “We regulate the firearms industry. We’re the experts.”

  3. Old NFO Says:

    This is ‘really’ interesting for the rest of the story that has to be out there…

  4. Kristophr Says:

    If you read the whole article, the reason the US Attorney told the BATFE to screw off was because they refused to take over local police generated felon-with-a-gun cases.

    He wasn’t going to play ball with the BATFE’s dealer harassment games if they weren’t going to do their real jobs.

    The stuff about the Mongols biker gang is bullshit. The last agent who seriously went after biker gangs was cashiered for not doing the important work of harassing honest people.

    I’m curious as to which way crime is trending in Reno and surrounding areas, and whether any F&F guns came from Reno dealers.

  6. Crotalus Says:

    Diaz said, that Nevada lost a critical (Critical??? HAH!!!) law enforcement agency…

    Dude, they didn’t lose the BATFEces so much as they kicked them out, seeing as all their cases are tainted now.

  7. The Comedian Says:

    A friend who used to work for the FCC out west said that the ATF was widely regarded by other federal agencies as a bunch of wannabes who couldn’t get into one of the higher prestige federal law enforcement agencies.

    They were openly called the “F Troop” by other federal employees.

    Seems about right for the gang that can’t talk straight.

    I loved the part where the BATF Agent being interviewed said “We’re the experts”. If you’re talking about lying, shooting people’s dogs, killing innocent people in their homes, raiding the wrong houses, man-handling 7 year old girls, sticking firearms in the faces of small children, prosecuting people for laws that the court system has already ruled against you on and losing track of firearms you allowed to be illegally purchased. Then, yes, You are the experts. Bad Attitudes Turning Fatal “BATF”.

    And Todd, the new meme is “Always Think Forfeiture.”

    @ricn8or
    How about “Butt-monkeys After The Fact”?

  11. ErnestThing Says:

    The ATF office certainly knows what “unidentified issues” they’re talking about. The DA did them a favor by keeping that information undisclosed.

    But if the ATF office wants to keep pleading innocence, I can’t imagine the DA is going to think twice about releasing all the failed, half-baked, and questionably legal cases the ATF sent them that resulted in this blanket refusal.

    They’re not very smart, but they don’t call them the F-Troop for nothing.
