"Fearless Distributing"- Oops
It was a Milwaukee sting that went really bad really fast.
It's a story being broken by John Diedrich and Raquel Rutledge at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
According to their story, a store calling itself Fearless Distributing opened early last year on an out-of-the-way street in Milwaukee's Riverwest neighborhood, offering designer clothes, athletic shoes, and jewelry.
According to the JS story, those behind the counter were actually undercover agents with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives running a storefront sting aimed at busting criminals by buying guns and drugs from felons.
As the operation unfolded, things went downhill quickly. Three ATF guns were stolen, including a military-style machine gun, which is still unaccounted for.
