Letter to Senate Judiciary critical of ATF nominee

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A former head of the Minneapolis FBI office sent federal lawmakers a letter Thursday sharply criticizing President Barack Obama's nominee to lead the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, calling B. Todd Jones an ineffective leader who consistently declined to prosecute violent gang, drug and gun crimes.


Former Minneapolis Police Chief Tim Dolan, who retired in 2012, said in an email to the AP that U.S. attorneys around the country are faced with changing priorities, which can be frustrating at times to police who want to put gang members away.

"Homeland Security and White Collar Crime are their top two priorities, and it is understandable big picture wise why that is the case," Dolan said.

He was just following Holder's lead... not prose cuting "his people".

Why does obama want this guy incharge of our guns?
