I spent 40 years as a cop in a major metro area. And, I can tell you that the local cops think any federal officer, i.e. FBI, ATF, DEA, ICE, etc., are a bunch of buffoons. Yes, they have the best equipment, latest gadgets, and overblown egos.....but insofar as actually being cops....they aren't and never were worth a hoot. Local cops laugh at them behind their backs. We only used them when we were forced to or if we needed some additional people for something.

You could use them as human shields. They are so dense they would stop any bullet.
Thank you for your service.

You've probably heard the old joke about how the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms should be a convenience store not a federal agency, but the latest ATF screw up in Wisconsin proves they aren't even capable of doing that properly. From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

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, jewelry and drug paraphernalia.

Those working behind the counter, however, weren't interested in selling anything.

They were undercover agents from the U.S....
