A San Antonio Police officer faces federal charges after his own department arrested him on accusations of planting false evidence and demanding cash from a crime victim, KHOU.com reports.

The joint sting operation by the police department and FBI led to Officer Curtis W. Lundy’s arrest Thursday .

The incident happened on Dec. 15 after Kumail Jusab of East Africa told authorities he was assaulted at an apartment.

When Lundy arrived, he demanded money and searched Jusab’s car, where he planted pot and threatened to arrest the man, police allege, according to KHOU.com.

“He kept telling me also, ‘You want your license? You know, you want your record to be clean? It’s only $400,’ and he wanted $400 on the spot. And I didn’t have the money on me.” Jusab told KHOU.com.

Editorial: ATF Needs More Authority to Stop Illegal Gun Sales

Newsday
Editorial

Congress should unshackle the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in the fight against illegal guns. Restrictions on the bureau’s activities are hobbling efforts to combat firearms trafficking and reduce the day-to-day gun violence plaguing the nation.

Americans have a constitutional right to own guns. And licensed gun dealers who operate legally must have nothing to fear from regulators. But most guns that find their way into the hands of madmen and criminals begin that journey in a legal sale. Better policing of the border between legal and illegal ownership is just common sense.

The first thing the Senate should do is confirm a permanent director for the ATF. It hasn’t had one since 2006, when Congress, nudged by gun-rights lobbyists, made Senate confirmation necessary. Since then neither Republican George W. Bush nor Democrat Barack Obama managed to find a nominee who could successfully run that gantlet.

FBI Changes Firearm Training to Adapt to Close-Quarters Shooting

The FBI’s firearm training has begun focusing on close-quarters combat after a review found that most agent-involved shootings are within point-blank range, the USA Today reports.

The new training protocol is a dramatic shift for an agency that has relied on long-range marksmanship training.

After reviewing about 200 shootings during a 17-year period involving FBI agents, the bureau found that 75% were within 3 yards when gunfire was exchanged, the USA Today reported.

“The thing that jumps out at you from the (shooting incident) research is that if we’re not preparing agents to get off three to four rounds at a target between 0 and 3 yards, then we’re not preparing them for what is likely to happen in the real world,” FBI training instructor Larry “Pogo” Akin told the USA Today.

The new training also requires agents to draw their guns from holsters shielded by jackets or blazers to replicate real-life scenarios.
