Tell me again just exactly how the FBI is a “law enforcement” agency?

fbi-thenigerianreporterMike Vanderboegh of The Sipsey Street Irregulars and the USA TODAY actually agree on something!!  (copied in it’s entirety – it’s THAT important. – Guffaw)

USA Today Exclusive: FBI allowed informants to commit 5,600 crimes

The FBI gave its informants permission to break the law at least 5,658 times in a single year, according to newly disclosed documents that show just how often the nation’s top law enforcement agency enlists criminals to help it battle crime.

The U.S. Justice Department ordered the FBI to begin tracking crimes by its informants more than a decade ago, after the agency admitted that its agents had allowed Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger to operate a brutal crime ring in exchange for information about the Mafia. The FBI submits that tally to top Justice Department officials each year, but has never before made it public.

Agents authorized 15 crimes a day, on average, including everything from buying and selling illegal drugs to bribing government officials and plotting robberies. FBI officials have said in the past that permitting their informants — who are often criminals themselves — to break the law is an indispensable, if sometimes distasteful, part of investigating criminal organizations.

FIFTEEN CRIMES A DAY? And that doesn’t include the ATF and DEA, as reported earlier by USA Today: Crimes by ATF and DEA informants not tracked by feds.

Tell me again how federal “law enforcement” agencies actually enforce the law rather than carry out an agenda?

(The crummy part is I know folks, past and present, who did (do) their duty honorably, and obey(ed) the law. This kind of stuff makes them just as sick as it does me, even more so.  Because it’s the bureaucrats that make the policy decisions.  Think Fast & Furious. – Guffaw)

As one of the commenters said, distasteful?, how about illegal?

  1. “Illegal” barely scratches the surface. It’s beyond corruption, and stinks to high heaven.

  2. Just one of several rouge agencies.

  3. I’m losing respect for the “good” coppers (no matter the agency) that allow this crap to go on and say nothing. It’s like these cities turning their police departments into paramilitary groups. Swat teams to serve a warrant? What ever happened to a couple of cops knocking on the door? Police state indeed.

  5. It all goes back to Hoover, think about the way he used informants… ANYTHING was okay as long as they got the conviction…

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
