Was ‘Hero’ ATF Agent Too Cold After Shooting a Bronx Weapons Dealer?

An ATF agent hailed as a hero for fatally shooting a Bronx weapons dealer is suing the federal agency because he was taken off full duty after the incident, the New York Post reports.

Adam Bruzzese, of Long Island, said his bosses at ATF were convinced something was wrong with him because they believed he didn’t show enough emotional reaction.

“Although Mr. Bruzzese appreciated the gravity of the on-the-job shooting, he did not experience any psychological, psychosomatic or emotional difficulties and he was willing and able to return to work immediately,” the suit states.

But a boss “questioned Mr. Bruzzese’s mental and emotional stability because Mr. Bruzzese did not seek further counseling, did not take time off from work and was supposedly not acknowledging the seriousness of the incident,” the suit says.

The FBI agent whose investigation brought down CIA Director David Petraeus played a major role in foiling a terrorist attack.

The USA Today reports that Special Agent Frederick Humphries II helped stop a terrorist plot to blow up Los Angeles International Airport in 2000.

Humphries also fatally shot a knife-wielding man at Tampa’s MacDill Air Force Base in 2010, the USA Today reported.

Now Humphries is credited with kickstarting the Petraeus investigation after he first saw threatening emails from the CIA director’s biographer, Paula Broadwell.
