FBI

Oh no he didn’t:

F**k the FBI and f**k all the army troops / Fighting for what? bitch be your own man / I be flying through the clouds with green like i’m Peter Pan

38seconds;  What a dumb piece of shit.   I never did like his music, now I also dislike him as a person.   This is why rap gets a bad name… repetitive talking over repetitive beats sprinkled with ignorance.  Plenty of intelligent rap out there to listen to, I don’t know why anyone would waste their time with this.

Action Figure Therapy goes in on it:

Priceless…  I love AFT.

<--- Somebody needs to smack the military insignia off of that outfit he has on. UPDATE: According to FOX, he apologized.

Can’t say I’m shocked at the results, nor the ranking of each individual state. Nice to see there was a decline in violent crime at least.

Since the FBI raid on the Michigan based Hutaree Christian militia, other Michigan militias are trying make it perfectly clear they do not have the same philosophy.

“Show, Shoot, Shout, Then Sip Some Tea With Us” is the slogan of the get together, and the primary objective is to take the stigma out of the word ‘militia’.

I think this is a really good idea.  Although I believe they are going to have trouble distancing themselves from Hutaree, because it seems like the only major difference is lack of religious extremism.  Guns, realistic training, disaster preparedness, and differing views on government are all still very prevalent;  those types of things are what will continue to frighten people.

I wish them the best of luck with their efforts.  It definitely looks like they have a fun day planned.

The combination of television, the internet, and law enforcement is very powerful:

I was kind of surprised to find out they only have caught 17 guys off the FBI’s most wanted list since 1988.  I supposed those guys are the worst of the worse though, cause he goes on to say they caught thousands more criminals.

Really neat how the advances in technology are flushing some of the scumbags out.

Do any of you guys that are in law enforcement have any stories to share about how the internet helped you catch a bad guy?

179 Department of Homeland Security weapons were lost between 2006 and 2008 — some falling into the hands of criminals — after officers left them in restrooms, vehicles and other public places, according to an inspector general report.  This is mainly because officers did not properly secure them.

Unfortunately this type of loss is always going to happen.  DHS is a huge agency, which makes me wonder exactly what percentage 180 guns equates to?  Do other large agencies such as the FBI have a similar number of guns lost every year?

I am assuming there were no repercussions at all for officers that lost their firearms, because according to the article DHS doesn’t even have a policy in place regarding the control of firearms.

John Haughey over at OutdoorLife’s Blog has an interesting article on the SHOT show round up of Smith & Wesson lawbreakers.

The article is surprisingly sympathetic.  As you know from my post The Smith & Wesson indictment irony I hardly share John’s sympathy.

From my point of view, what happened at S&W was pure greed.  After a blockbuster year thanks to Obama, they still needed more money, and were willing breaking the law to get more of it.  Without personally knowing the inner workings of S&W, I can say with confidence that they have numerous lawyers, all of which would know better then to say bribery would be a good thing for the company.

I do agree with John on the ridiculousness of  the following:

“Let’s see, at $75,000 a year, it’s $6,250 a month per agent,” he calculates. “$6250 x 30 months = $187,500 per agent. $187,500 x 250 agents = $46,875,000 to arrest 22 people.”

Voila! That’s $46.875 million of your tax money to arrest 22 people, or more than $2.1 million each.

If FBI agents really do make $75k /year and all 250 of them were working solely on this sting, then that is a crazy amount of money.  It would definitely work out to much more than $2.1 million if you factored in expenses besides just their salaries.

I’ll take this opportunity to make the same joke as I did in my last post:

If you are sympathetic towards S&W, buy some handcuffs – HERE :P
