ATF Drug Stings Targeted Minorities, Report Finds
"A new report has found 'strong, consistent and statistically
significant' evidence that federal gun agents singled out minorities for
controversial drug stings in Chicago.
The stings had been a
centerpiece of efforts by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
Explosives to target violent crime. Agents lured suspects with the
promise of a huge payday for robbing a drug “stash house” that did not
actually exist, then left them facing long prison sentences for plotting
to resell the imaginary drugs."
