Sting Operations Face New Scrutiny
Friday, 30 May 2014 | by Pat's Picks
Sting operations widely used by authorities are coming under new scrutiny after two federal judges ruled them unconstitutional. The operations, used by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, offer big paydays to suspects by encouraging them to rob an imaginary drug stash house. USA Today says one judge threw out the charges against three suspects even after they had pleaded guilty. Judges are said to be growing frustrated over a lack of information on how these people are being targeted in the first place.
