C’mon seriously a trained ATF agent can’t tell when someone is mentally disabled?
Check it out:
Testifying Wedesday in front of the House Oversight Committee, ATF Director B. Todd Jones denied allegations and evidence that ATF agents purposely target mentally ill or disabled persons for undercover storefront operations.
“We do not target mentally disabled or mentally challenged individuals, we target criminal behavior,” Jones said, arguing ATF agents don’t know or can’t tell when someone is mentally ill or disabled when working with them during operations. “We do not target the developmentally disabled.”
Jones was asked about targeting of brain damaged and mentally disabled persons, including teenagers, after a damning report was published last year in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Not only were mentally disabled people targeted and taught by agents how to illegally manipulate firearms, but they were also encouraged and paid to get neck tattoos of a smoking squid. Those tattoos were paid for by ATF, courtesy of the American taxpayer.
