Bathtub Homicide/Suicide, Inside Fast & Furious, Home Invasion Foot Pursuit

1/31/2024
From NYPD Homicide to the ATF, Peter Forcelli had an amazing career. His stories from NYPD are just as crazy as you think they would be! While at the ATF he bravely called out the corruption he was seeing during Operation Fast and Furious. This of course did not go over well with the politicians and bureaucrats at the highest level of government. For all the gritty details grab Peter's book The Deadly Path: How Operation Fast & Furious and Bad Lawyers Armed Mexican Cartels. Being released March 5, 2024. Pre-order now! https://www.amazon.com/Deadly-Path-Operation-Furious-Lawyers/dp/B0CCMMQKCQ Pete Forcelli was a highly respected federal agent in New York City, where he made an impact on violent crime by successfully targeting some of the city’s most violent street gangs by using federal racketeering and continuing criminal enterprise statutes in conjunction with federal prosecutors. In early 2007, he was promoted to a supervisory position in Phoenix and quickly discovered that federal prosecutors were not charging criminals for violating federal firearms laws, even in instances where they knew guns were being trafficked to ultra-violent drug cartels and then used in crimes that were shocking to the conscience.
