What Kind Of Juvenile Reprobates Are Hired To Work For The FBI?

The motto for the Federal Bureau of Investigation is supposed to be “fidelity, bravery, integrity.” “FBI” Get it? I am tempted to come up with a different motto that fits the initials and the character of many of the agents. But this is a family friendly blog.

So let me ask, what kind of people need this sort of correction?:

“‘We're hoping (that) getting the message out in the quarterlies is going to teach people, as well as their supervisors ... you can't do this stuff,’ FBI assistant director Candice Will told CNN this week. ‘When you are given an FBI BlackBerry, it's for official use. It's not to text the woman in another office who you found attractive or to send a picture of yourself in a state of undress. That is not why we provide you an FBI BlackBerry.’”

The “quarterlies” are reports about disciplinary cases that the FBI directors hope will teach other agents not to act like fools or perverts. You can read some of them here (pdf). I suppose there is no reason to expect FBI investigators to behave better than Secret Service agents or DEA agents. But while prostitutes are immoral, using official mobile phones just to show off seems a lot more immature and unstable.

“FBI employees were disciplined for their transgressions, including one woman who -- according to the reports -- "used (a) personal cell phone to send nude photographs of herself to other employees" which "adversely affected the daily activities of several squads." Another FBI worker e-mailed a "nude photograph of herself to ex-boyfriend's wife." Both employees received 10-day suspensions. Another who visited a massage parlor "and paid for a sexual favor from the masseuse" received a 14-day suspension. And an employee who used a government-issued BlackBerry "to send sexually explicit messages to another employee" was suspended for five days.”

How widespread is the problem? Out of 36 thousand employees, the FBI had to discipline over a thousand in the last two years. 85 were fired. Furthermore, these problems are very similar to the ones CNN discovered in 2011. Not much has changed.

I can’t say I’m very surprised. There have been reports for years that the FBI is pretty much the ideal organization to frame the accused, starting with their joke of a crime lab. The repeated stories of FBI methods of hiding information from defense lawyers and FOIA requests also raises character questions. I’ve always wondered what sort of people would recruit someone to be a terrorist, pose as a terrorist and offer equipment that the person would never have been able to get his hands on, and then bust him for a terrorist plot.

I’m sure that there are many times that the FBI performs its tasks well and that there are many people who do live up to the motto, “fidelity, bravery, integrity.” But I suspect that these people are kept compartmentalized from others, whose flexible morals allow them to perform acts that aren’t really compatible with constitutional government. Even if the vast majority of agents are exemplary, the fact remains that the Bureau's moral standards are really low--as anyone can see by looking at what an agent can do and yet not be immediately fired.

    In a place where sound judgment is imperative, there appears be precious little at the FBI. Seems official government business is being conducted by a crew of juveniles.

    OMG dude.....that really sucks.

    BlackBerry? in 2013?

    • jsmithcsa

      Oh, yeah. While BlackBerry's marketshare is plummeting, it's hard to beat their security. I just got rid of mine (traded it for an Android model) and have already found that my new phone is unusable for one of my email accounts because it doesn't have the security that BlackBerry does, thus I can't use it for what I need it to do.

      • Carl Junior

        Do a Google News search with the words "Blackberry India". Security?

      • 1PierreMontagne1

        Blackberry has better security, and encryption and has no DOD backdoors - that is why it is preferred by most DHS agencies.
        Unlike your Android or Iphone.

        • Carl Junior

          Does the DOD of India count? I don't know why you believe you are secure on that device. They are ALL compromised. That is why they are closing the Post Office.

        • http://twitter.com/worship_dancer Worship Dancer

          well that really makes no sense. so basically they are closing the Post Office because the blackberry, android, and iphones are all compromised? i hadn't heard that they are closing the Post Office.

    • Ole SC

      Hold on Junior, some of us Old Farts haven't gotten up to the BlackBerry yet!! You know we don't like change!!! LOL

      • Carl Junior

      Isn't a blackberry a fruit? And, isn't "black" a racist term? Oh wait. Black man in White House. Black man is also a fruit... Makes perfect sense to my perverted mind! :-)

  • rowdygirl726

    What a disappointment our law enforcment is getting to be.. it's a shame that they are engaging in such reprehensible behavior. I don't understand how they keep their security clearances when they violate the code.. I mean, I DO know how they keep them, but they shouldn't be allowed to.
    For me, women acting this way is worse than the men.. you can be tough, but please still act like a respectable woman. Acting like an oversexed idiot is only going to send the message that you are one, and deserve no repsect at all.

    • jsmithcsa

      The worst part is that it goes all way to the top -- the Attorney General and President.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1254545548 Jim Greaves

      Stop being "disappointed" and DO something. Write to your Congress critter and demand that firing be the punishment - suspension is BS.

      • http://twitter.com/worship_dancer Worship Dancer

        yep cause they usually suspend "with pay" big deal so they get an extra vacation.

      • Jude O'Connor

        You've got to be kidding , write to your Congressman. Google (number of staff for congress) We vote into office 535 but they appoint thousands to do the grunt work and claim they are our representatives.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100004246691037 Paul Thomas

        Yea but.. your Congress critter is doing the same type of crap.And your Congress critter is pulling the same type of crap , does Anthony Wnner come to mind or the lateist one from N.j. ,,

  • jsmithcsa

    Yeah, I heard the initial report. It shocking.

    Not 1 Gov't Dept is working for the People they are to serve! Rather then collapse our $, they should collapse the GOV'T only!

  • PatriotAmerican

    Unstable young agents in the FBI? It may emenate from the top...the Attorney General who looks at Black Panthers intimating white voters in Philly and sees no wrong, who does not answer inquiries of congressional committees, etc.

    • http://twitter.com/worship_dancer Worship Dancer

      look higher than just the atty gen

      • JThaddeustoad

        Where is that mullet head director...

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1254545548 Jim Greaves

    Where in the Constitution of the United States is there ANY authority to create the FBI? The same question NEEDS TO BE ASKED for EVERY agency that is not mentioned in Article 1 of the US Constitution. It is time to end this usurpative government and its totalitarian BS.

    • rational

      Jim, that's simply silly. The purpose of the constitution was never that every oddball interpertation was intended as a substitute for reasoned discussion.

    • JThaddeustoad

      YES ... Jim ....First means test your local sheriff than rally behind him .... He is the one with the constitutional authority to send the Fed home...

  • danman1213

    What do you expect . Hover exstored and framed many.. Affirmative action dumb down the so called highly educated experts. And now the FBI has been infiltrated by radical Muslims and white collar organized criminals. The average Agent makes 90,000 a year and make work 3 to 5 cases a year. This dose not exclude the political dancing that's done. Lets not for get the US attorney must aprove all arrest and Warrants or before and arrest . Better susport you sheriff ..

    • Carl Junior

      Home schooled? Is English your second language?

    • http://twitter.com/worship_dancer Worship Dancer

      do you mean HOOVER? do you perhaps mean extorted? and dumbed down? and perhaps MAY work? and even DOES? and what is susport? and your second to last sentence makes absolutely no sense.

      • JThaddeustoad

        The agency has been in indated with folks that are A moral and their behavior is indicative...

        • 848484

          JUST WHERE WERE THE TRAITS PRESSED INTO THEIR LIBERAL BRAINS? LIBERAL COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES OF COURSE.

      • Jude O'Connor

        Government educated.

  • rational

    The FBI was founded by the paranoid cross dressing Hover.

      hoover

  • dntmkmecomoverther

    Well, well, well. The harvest is in of the results of over 40 yrs of shidty public (government) schooling. The results surprise us? Seriously? We tell kids that they are not the creator's design but a product of random chance and with no purpose...and we are to act surprised when they live concurrent to that worldview...

    This is now a pandemic issue. Look at the moral abyss that our society is in. We can't even tell ourselves that killing an unborn baby is actually 'murder'. Smoking pot is OK. Confiscating guns is 'OK'. But worshiping God is NOT ok. Neither is believing in Creation.

    So, in essence we have gone from being a nation of Godliness to a nation of godlessness and we wonder why our people behave the ways they do. Frankly, their behavior betrays their educations and virtues taught by that system. Both suck. Is anyone else ready to go back to whence we came as a Republic?...

      That my friend is glory passed..

  • localnet

    One simple old saying says it all... The fish rots from the head down. Look for more stories like this as dear leader increases his grip. This will be tame stuff in the near future.

  • BeautifulAmerica

    Suspended? For that pittance of time? Why were they not FIRED??

  • BeautifulAmerica

    Apparently, Apparatchiks like Candace Will do not want to be bothered by the public, i.e., we who employ them. NO email addresses are available on the FBI website.

    Oh, Candace dear....I want to file a complaint that these employees were only suspended, not fired!
    This kind of person does not belong in such a trusted position. They should never have been hired...and that, too should be investigated.

  • JThaddeustoad

    Scary .... And these folks are charged with the authority to take our freedoms and liberty at any time.... very scary...

    Wonderful upstanding people representing our country, I expect no less.

  • Floyd Seyler

    Actually I went to the FBI office in San Francisco around 1-1:30 and couldn't believe the clowns that went into the restricted area. I went there to identify a hacker that broke into my account and was soliciting money from entries in my address book. They could care less. After my interview I was completely turned off by the FBI and believe they just a bunch of bozo's.

  • Jude O'Connor

    A slap on the hand but you better tow the mark when the FBI comes to your door. I marvel at the silence the FBI has as far as the behavior of our government members. Jesse Jackson's case took forever to go public. The FBI should march through the halls of Congress but it's the same thing there too.

  • Capt. Habu

    The FBI is a total joke. Check out the book "Classified Woman" by Sibel Edmonds if you want to see the FBI in all it's "glory". You'll never trust ANY law enforcement agency or any politician again.
