The Important Work of our Law Enforcement Professionals

When you’ve reached the pinnacle of your profession…

When you’ve joined a top federal agency like the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms…

You’re ready for something a little more dangerous… a little more deadly… a little more *important* than ticketing speeders and arresting drunks.

You’re ready for *homework*.

>The man who recently departed as director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives ordered his staff to help with his nephew’s high school homework, wasting the agency’s time and violating ethics rules, an inquiry found Wednesday.

The kid’s homework was “a documentary about the ATF that took 10 months to complete” that the director justified as “a form of community outreach.” After all, what could be better publicity than a widely seen and well-distributed high school-level amateur film project?

>An estimated 20 ATF employees were pulled in to help with the documentary, spending dozens of hours on research, pulling film footage from the agency’s library and setting up interviews with Truscott and other officials in Washington and Philadelphia.

>The nephew received an ‘A’ on the project, the report noted.

  1. It’s funny how the media can twist and turn a fact around into a distored story. It’s also funny how people choose to criticize others who have more power than themselves. Mr. Truscott was the best Director ATF ever had and its truly ashame the jealous few inside ATF caused the media to influence his retirement.
