A police sergeant in the Minneapolis Police Department had told Charles Laszewski about a drifter named Mike Green who was buying guns and then making illegal sales to teenagers on the street. Green, he was told, had been questioned by the Department and his case had then been referred for prosecution to the U.S. Attorney. Nothing happened. When Laszewski checked the data maintained by TRAC he discovered that the record of the federal prosecutors in the district was not impressive. On May 7, 1997, the Pioneer Press ran his investigation on the front page.
