ATF Let Gunman with Violent History Walk Away During Sting Operation in Milwaukee

ATF agents who were conducting a sting operation in Milwaukee last summer allowed a felon with a violent history to leave a store without taking him into custody or tracking him, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Bobby Ball, who is a felon with a history of violence, never returned to the store to sell guns to agents as promised.

The suspect went missing for four months until he was arrested recently for drunken-driving in Minnesota.

Holder Faces Possible Contempt of Congress Charges

The U.S. House Oversight Committee will take the unusual step this week of deciding whether to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for failing to turn over documents in the controversial Fast and Furious weapons sting investigation, CBS News reports.

Republicans say the Justice Department is withholding tens of thousands of pages of documents that would shed light on a sting operation that put guns in the hands of thugs and drug dealers.

Holder can prevent a contempt hearing by handing over the documents, CBS News reports.

But the Justice Department said it has been open and cooperative about requests for records.

If the committee takes action, it will be Congress’ fourth contempt action against a presidential cabinet member in 30 years.
