A federal appeals judge recently took aim at the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' use of fictitious drug robbery schemes to secure lengthy prison sentences for would-be rip off crews, strongly criticizing the practice in a written opinion. The so-called reverse stings follow a pattern: An informant or undercover agent poses as a disgruntled courier and invites a group of people to rob his employer of a half-million dollars or so worth of drugs. But Judge Stephen Reinhardt wrote that such tactics raise important issues about wealth inequality in the United States and whom authorities decide to pursue.

A federal appeals judge in California last week took aim at the ATF's use of fictitious drug robbery schemes to secure lengthy prison sentences for would-be rip off crews, strongly criticizing the practice in a written opinion. The cases are simple: an informant or undercover agent poses as a disgruntled courier and invites a group of people to rob his employers of a half million dollars or so worth of cocaine. But Judge  Stephen Reinhardt wrote that such tactics raise important issues about wealth inequality in the United States and who law enforcement decides to pursue.

Six alleged members of a robbery crew caught in a sting by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are expected to plead guilty to federal charges, according to a letter filed in the case Tuesday. The government claims that the men were armed drug traffickers who operated out of Waverly. They plotted to rob what they were told was another drug organization's stash house, and were taken into custody in June as they prepared for the raid, according to court filings.

NEW YORK -- The year was 1960. Chubby Checker was doing the Twist, Sen. John F. Kennedy was headed for the White House, and Carmen Bilbao, a student at New York University, walked to a movie in Times Square. "It was a better time," she recalls. "I thought it was safe."Then, in the old Apollo Theater on West 42nd Street, Bilbao made the mistake of placing her pocketbook on the empty seat next to hers, making it an easy mark for the thief who lay in wait until the lights went down.So began a curious tale, extending nearly 40 years, for Bilbao and dozens of others who were victimized by a petty criminal (or criminals)

Authorities believe that drug dealers who used vacant houses on the block thought Paige might have turned over a drug stash to police. On March 20, 2007, they confronted him in the house where he was living and working, in the 500 block of E. 43rd St., and shot him six times, including once in the mouth.

Should corporations get a massive tax discount for bringing the $1.4 trillion they've stashed in overseas tax havens back to America? An army of corporate lobbyists certainly think so. They are asking Congress for a tax holiday allowing corporations to pay just a 5 percent to 8 percent tax rate on profits they've kept offshore instead of the normal 35 percent. That's a lucrative reward for companies that have shirked their tax responsibility. Sadly, it's happened before. Congress last gave corporate America a "repatriation holiday" in 2004.

An man who police say is a member of a Baltimore drug organization tied to a rash of violence across the city has been charged with attempted murder after police say he dumped scalding water on a 71-year-old man and a 51-year-old woman to punish them for stealing drugs. Police wrote in court papers that the victims were receiving free "testers" of heroin in exchange for allowing two men to stash drugs in their apartment in the Latrobe Homes projects, in East Baltimore. On Feb. 17, the dealers, identified as 28-year-old Eric Rich and a second man who has not been arrested, checked on the stash and believed the amount to be short.
