They stole 3 Harleys and a pickup truck? And acted like white trash, fighting and selling dope?



OMFG, call HomeLand SeKKKurity quick!



Yet another fine example of our overpaid and over-equipped "law enforcement" making a REALLY BIG DEAL out of petty crime.

Ah, another high-profile shining moment for the ATF. Why would the ATF be involved in this? Why is there a "Bureau" for legal stuff? Is the ATF an arm of the IRS? It took them 3 years to investigate and react to these things??? I'm pretty sure Barney Fife would have reacted sooner than that. I thought the cops dealt with thefts, assaults and illegal drugs... They all ride Harleys (the gang guys)? AND???...

The only thing bike related is that some of the members ride HDs. Other than the media "Biker" hype, sounds like a righteous bust.

I don't care if the cops go after the Bandidos.

Default Sheriff Andy.. where's my bullet?

It took this long because with all those pockets in their fancy black tactical gear it took three years for them to go through all those pockets find their bullet.

The ATF is a branch of Federal Law Enforcement that operates under the Department of the Treasury, whereas the FBI operates under the Department of Justice. They have exactly the same nationwide law enforcement authority as duly sworn federal agencies. The ATF lately has generally done the "biker gang" investigations of late because they have more experience in that particular field, (see William Queen's yawnfest "Under and Alone") as well as often find large numbers of what they claim to be stolen firearms during such investigations.





Federal Law Enforcement is used in cases such as these because many of the more serious alleged charges fall under Federal Law, known as United States Code or the USC. This would include the racketeering, kidnapping, and witness tampering charges. However, you are correct in asserting that the local "cops" would handle the theft and other more minor charges.
