New ATF Chief in Philadelphia Impressed in Early Days with Federal Agency

Philadelphia’s new ATF chief, Essam “Sam” Rabadi, wasted no time to impress when he became an agent in the 1990s, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Just a few years on the job, Rabadi played a major role in breaking up a team of thieves who were committing robberies in Baltimore and New York. Agents eventually arrested 17 people.

Earlier this month, Rabadi became head of the bureau’s Philadelphia division, the fifth largest in the country, the Inquirer reported.

“The No. 1 issue in this city is the proliferation of illegal handguns and the violence attached to that,” Rabadi, 51, told the Inquirer in an interview at the ATF office across from Independence Hall. “The level of gun violence here, it’s fairly remarkable.”
