In my 20 year law enforcement career, I was never a giant fan of the FBI. Most of the agents I came into contact with were arrogant pencil pushers who never sat in the driver seat of a black and white. Don’t get me wrong, there were great agents too. Most of them had prior real law enforcement experience, but I’m sure there are good ones who have not.
I’m not just going to take a shot at the FBI without a good reason, but the time has come.
The FBI did nothing for over a year after receiving reports of sexual abuse allegations against US Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar. The Inspector General said at least 70 athletes were abused during that time period. Nassar ultimately was found to have abused 265 people and was sent to jail.
How about when the FBI used false documents to literally spy on Trump and his campaign? When that happened, I was like — that’s just the admin, the boots on the ground are good…. but now I’m not so sure.
Is the FBI a politically motivated organization now?
Let’s take a look at their success on crushing crime:
The FBI had either been warned or tipped off:
2016 Pulse Nightclub shooter
2018 Parkland school shooter
2013 Boston bomber
2009 Fort Hood shooter
Recent Boulder grocery store shooter
2020 Nashville Christmas bomber
In the case of the Pulse nightclub shooter, it would later be revealed that his father had been an FBI informant for over a decade prior to the shooting, the Daily Caller reported.
The FBI ignored Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged crimes, first reported in 1996. In 2006 a US Attorney shut down the federal investigation after Epstein plead to state charges on prostitution, even though they knew there was more. They finally got around to arresting him in 2019, and we all know what happened next.
Remember when the FBI ruined Richard Jewell’s life? Leaking ultimately wrong information that he was responsible, when it turned out he saved hundreds of people by discovering the bomb at the Atlanta Olympics. They ruined a hero.
What about the worst mass shooting in American history? The country music concert in Las Vegas. The FBI wrapped up their investigation without ever determining a motive for the shooter, they say.
At least they sent 15 agents to investigate an alleged noose, that wasn’t, in Bubba Wallace’s racing garage…
Much more recently, the lead FBI agent in the Gretchen Whitmer ‘kidnapping plot’ was charged for assaulting his wife after a swinger’s party. That investigation has reportedly been so full of informants that the leftist news outlet Buzzfeed reported, “They had a hand in nearly every aspect of the alleged plot, starting with its inception. The extent of their involvement raises questions as to whether there would have even been a conspiracy without them.”
With the FBI now encouraging Americans to spy on each other, can you really trust them anymore?
The FBI of today is more concerned about locking up grandmas who walked in the capitol on January 6th, even with no allegations of violence or anything other than a misdemeanor. These people are being held with no bail in solitary confinement for 6 months without trial. Does that sound like the American way?
Don’t get me wrong, if someone assaulted law enforcement, may they rot in that jail… but that’s not the case here.
There is very credible information that multiple informants were in play during the January 6th riot. How many of these crimes they proudly investigate are due to informants pushing the crime along?
The FBI Director, Chris Wray, claims ANTIFA is an ideology and not an organization… Would you like the link to some ANTIFA social media accounts (still online)?
They are using all resources to round up trump supporters who they can connect to being at the capitol… what are they doing about the 250 declared riots in the last year? Dozens dead. TWO BILLION in damage…
They are rounding up BLM and ANTIFA rioters right? The ANTIFA that regularly assaulted federal buildings in Portland night after night? Who assaulted law enforcement across the country? Rounding them up. Asking their friends and family to turn them in? Right?
WRONG, they are still just going after Trump supporters.
So I ask you, Good FBI agents…
I have sworn the same oath as you have.
Let me ask you, are you upholding that oath?
It seems you are in a politically driven corrupt organization…
What will you do about it?
It’s time to take a look at yourself in the mirror and see if you believe you are upholding the constitution by working for this agency.
Don’t worry, real law enforcement is in desperate need of recruits.
