Law Enforcement Agencies Missing Pentagon-Supplied Weapons

(Undated) -- Dozens of law enforcement agencies are admitting to losing track of weapons they received from the Pentagon. That has gotten nearly 150 agencies dropped from the program that provides surplus military gear to state and local departments. The Pentagon says eight-thousand law enforcement agencies take part in the program and that 98-percent are in good standing. The program came to national attention last month after police in Ferguson, Missouri used heavy military equipment to try and stem protests in the St. Louis suburb after the shooting death of a black teenager.
