BREAKING: Cities Sue Pentagon for Fudging Up Military Crime Reporting
The Pentagon royally screwed the pooch. You may recall: Pentagon Knew of Lapse in Military Crime Reporting. Did Nothing... This means serious crimes were never reported to the FBI. Not to be confused with lesser crimes like The Leather Special. Which leads to bad things, like the Sutherland Springs maniac being able to put his twisted paws on guns. Massive government screw ups are nothing new. This one resulted in a massive death count. So there's that.
These three cities are taking legal action.
Three major U.S. cities on Tuesday filed a federal lawsuit against the Pentagon to fix a "clearly broken system" that they contend allowed a former Air Force serviceman to buy a gun and kill 26 people in a Texas church in November.
New York, Philadelphia and San Francisco seek to have the Defense Department (DoD) "fulfill their long-standing legal obligation to report all service members disqualified from purchasing and possessing firearms to the FBI's national background check system," according to a statement from the law firm filing the case.
Law enforcement officials in all three cities "regularly rely upon the integrity of the FBI's background check system," the attorneys write.
New York, San Francisco and Philadelphia attempting to sue the pants off the Pentagon for a reason which matters is shocking. Especially considering how deeply blue the states bleed (see SAN FRANCISCO: Term 'Criminal' Now Offensive. Guess Why. and Philadelphia Mayor Passes Soda Tax. Complains When Prices Go Up...).
Cities like San Francisco consistently push for ALL ZE GUN CONTROLS -- aka more taxes, more regulation, more government interference. But this time they're taking it to their precious federal government. With whom they usually break bread to break taxpayers. Difference is the federal government broke their hearts. These deep blue cities touted the value of Big Government, especially when it comes to gun control, only the government failed them. How embarrassing to be a federal government shill, only to have egg splattered all over one's face.
When the Sutherland Springs shooting went down, it wasn't the government who saved the day. Government never saves the day. It was a man. We talk to him in depth below.
