holder did this in milwaukee last year and ended up allowing over a dozen full auto M4 fall into the hands of gangs none of which have been recovered.

Send all the BATFE agents to Chicago. Chi-Town obviously needs more officers.

I wonder how long it will take Chicagoans to figure out that the federal government is not there to help them and could care less how many people are murdered. In fact, since Eric Holder and his justice department, a farce if ever there was one, has been busy selling guns to the very criminals that our police are supposed to protect us from one should rightly wonder how much worse he's trying to make the situation.

Mexico is the model after which Chicago has been fashioned. The good citizens of Chicago are, for the most part, completely unarmed and the armed criminals there are running rampant, which would be the exact same problem that our neighbors south of the border have.

Big old dangerous cities are like our tailbones, vestiges with no purpose other than to be a royal pain in the arse. Gun Laws didnt help it (shocking), he's sending in 52 LE Special Forces, (That wont help either). Warehousing poor and desperate people in giant cages only produces chaos and violence. The only thing that will protect Chicagoan's is a wrecking ball and one way tickets out of there (hopefully not to NY).

As far as Holder goes, he's actually responding to that which isnt the hallmark of his bosses anti gun plan (a rash of crazed killers in schools) but is the cause of most of the truly scary murder stats in the nation, Gang violence in the big cities! No fanfare from that cause it only illuminates that more anti gun laws dont equal safer neighborhoods, just helpless, hopeless minions that try to survive their predator infestations one day at a time. They need more than the Federal Orkin Seal team to save their day, the bugs they are trying to squash are very armed and very dangerous and have no care for their own lives or anyone's for that matter.

Actually Holder is sending 7 BATF agents to Chicago. There are currently 45 BATF agents in the Chicago area. He is also boosting the number of FBI agents to 100 in the Chicago area. None of these agents are there to actually find any criminals. They are there to find ways to charge criminals actually arrested by local law enforcement with federal charges that have a lengthy sentence. At the end of the day federal law enforcement can claim to have sent all these criminals to jail when all they really did was find a way to add a federal charge

If that were true, they would have sent IRS agents instead. Hey it worked for Al Capone didn't it?

Naw, Holder and Obama are not interested in catching and/or prosecuting criminals.

He has sent these guys there for political reasons and to twist the facts about "Gun" violence in America.

This is a "Pre-Election" stunt and nothing more. Watch how it plays out, it will end up a EO, an EA, or Congressional Gun Control issue before Nov. 2014, sure as hell.

Last time I checked, Chicago ranked last or next to last in federal firearms related crimes being actually charged...

^^^^^ exactly that. They created a felony review board, so most of the accused get lessened charges, if any. #1 thing the real CPD officers complain about.
