Ex-DEA supplied cartel with assault rifles

Joseph Michael Gill was a supervisor at the DEA, tasked with rooting out drug traffickers. Instead he helped arm them during his 645 sales on Gunbroker.com. Gill bought three high-powered assault rifles from a gun shop in Lexington and sold them to members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
Gill sold Colt M4LE rifles, which fire high-velocity rounds that can rip through cops' protective vests. Gill blamed Homeland Security Investigations for what he considers his unfair prosecution. At least 70% of weapons seized in Mexico were made in or came through America.
