Why Didn’t the FBI Act?

2018 February 16
by bc3b

Remember the good old days when the FBI battled communists, caught bank robbers and tracked down the country’s most dangerous criminals?

Those days are long gone. Today’s FBI is far more interested in politics and controlling the outcome of elections than in fighting crime. Fearless crime fighting street agents have given way to pukes like Peter Strozek, who spent much of his time working to influence elections and sending his mistress more than 5,000 text messages, mostly on government time … or pencil pushers like Pajama Boy Josh Campbell, CNN’s new law enforcement contributor. Campbell would have seriously soiled his undies had he ever come face-to-face with a dangerous felon.

They say “if you see something, report something.” Several concerned citizens tried to do just that reporting high school murderer Nikolas Cruz to the FBI last fall and again in January. Instead of doing something, today’s corrupt FBI was far too busy, playing politics, texting lovers, looking for Russian collusion in the 2016 election and pushing pencils.

As a result, 17 people are dead and a dozen more are hospitalized.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to “conduct an immediate review” of both the Justice Department and FBI Friday.

Sessions referenced the new revelations into the FBI’s mishandling of tips on suspected Stoneman Douglass High School shooter Nikolas Cruz, which he called “tragic.”  (RELATED: FBI Admits It Mishandled Tip On Florida Shooter)

“It is now clear that the warning signs were there and tips to the FBI were missed,” Sessions wrote in a statement. “We see the tragic consequences of those failures.”

“The FBI in conjunction with our state and local partners must act flawlessly to prevent all attacks. This is imperative, and we must do better,” he continued.

The FBI in conjunction with our state and local partners must act flawlessly to prevent all attacks. This is imperative, and we must do better,” he continued.

“We will make this a top priority. It has never been more important to encourage every person in every community to spot the warning signs and alert law enforcement. Do not assume someone else will step up — al of us must be vigilant. Our children’s lives depend on it.”

Florida Gov. Rick Scott also reportedly mobilized against the FBI Friday, and issued a press release calling for FBI Director Christopher Wray’s resignation.

    Wray should resign. All he has done since his appointment is circle the wagons around Hillary’s team of deep staters.

    “Why Didn’t the FBI Act?” Wrong question.

    “Why are not all teachers required to be CW, range qualified and armed?” Ok sounds so Archie Bunker. But the Libs tell us that our children are our most precious resource. I concur. But if that is indeed the fact —

    a) Why are schools gun free zones?
    b) Why is the present methodology ‘Lock, Duck, Hide’?

    When the best defense is ‘Pop, Pop, Pop… Click, Click… Reload… Pop, Pop, Pop’ till that door handle stops turning.

    True story. When our college started up, we were on the middle school grounds so had to follow the ISD’s procedures which were in the event of an incident —

    * Gather the kids in a corner of the room.
    * Lock the doors.
    * Fill out a green card (provided) if all students were present. The data? number in the room + instructor! Slid out into the hallway
    * Fill out a red card if some students were missing. The data? number missing from the room. Slid out into the hallway
    * Turn out the lights.
    * Not to leave the room till a LEO shows up.

    At the next safety meeting, PoPo present, I pointed out that a) not all the doors have operable locks. b) Filling out the cards might be a convenience to the PoPo but is also a convenience to the shooter. c) The cards defeat the purpose of the turning out the lights and prevent anyone from attempting to escape since the exit would not be readily visible.

    I was asked not to show up for safety meetings anymore….

    The problem with public schools is that they have limited options. My daughter is a first-year, third grade teacher, She has a student (considered the worst kid in the school). She claims he is psycotic. His natural mother was on drugs during her pregnancy. He was adopted by two lesbians. He has no interaction with the other students. They are afraid of him, even boys who are bigger and stronger. He is on medication. He has been suspended numerous times. He has pushed and hit teachers and other school employees and kicked the principal. He belongs in a special school.

    Maybe it is their intention “not to act”. Get enough of these incidents and the people will demand the government ACT. What liberties will the people give up to get a “little security”.

    the top FOUR levels of the FBI needs to be gutted…and yes, some good people will be thrown out, but oh well. Then start over with tough ACTUAL prosecutors and investigators from around the country. The lower-level folks can show them the ropes.

    ANYTHING would be better than what is happening today.

    According to CBS News, the FBI only has about two dozen agents to pursue thousands of calls a day:

    14,

    Old line thinking, not that I am against that. I prefer shoe leather investigations. Fewer false positives.
    However it is so yesterday, so…..

    FBI buys a Watson. It is programmed to assess probable threat based on content of the 911 call and prior records at that address/PoI. Then ‘those 12’ can focus on the most likely to pop cases. Course many will still fall thru the cracks. Our legal system is built on the idea innocence before guilt. As a consequence there is always going to be clean ups in aisle 6.

    on a thread up on Facebook the question was asked: “What could have prevented the tragedy in Florida?

    This response struck me as spot-on:

    Uniforms in schools, strict dress code, corporal punishment. Boot camps for unruly trouble making kids. Armed Officers, extensive training for teachers who want to carry guns and who have the ability to use it. Stop social services interference of parental discipline. Teach American History K through college. Less emphasis on world history. Also teach , life skills, works skills, ethics, Civics, character education. Keep all Christian American celebrations and holidays in schools. No Islam in schools. Put a stop to violent video games. No more liberal crap in America. Mandatory pledge of allegiance, 100% student and teacher participation. TAKE BACK AMERICA, get control of our children.”

    JR #17 –

    It’s interesting that many of the Hollywierd stars who are for gun control appear in movies that contain gun violence.

    What we need in schools is discipline. I attended public school through 8th grade. In middle school (then known as junior), paddling was common. The shop teacher not only supplied paddles, but “pinch hit” for women teachers. In Catholic school, they didn’t mess with paddles. They just slapped you.

    Today’s teachers and students face problems we never faced: single parent homes, drug abuse, gay/lesbian couples, students using the restrooms and locker rooms they identify with, children as young as three being challenged to question their sexual identity, etc.

    My daughter had two teaching offers: a Catholic school and a public school that paid $10,000 more. She has lots of problems she never would have faced at Our Lady of Refuge.

    Why an armed citizenry is the best defense against perps — https://www.westernjournal.com/list-attackers-fbi-warned-still-failed-stop/ — A compiled list of incidents that the PoPo failed to stop yet were warned about prior.

    The time to respond is while ‘in the act’ that the average US law enforcement org cannot do. They lack the resources to be on every street corner. Only a high percentage of daily CW carriers can do that.

    A joke my brother sent me. Gotta ask that boy what’s up LOL

    Tom finally decided to tie the knot with his longtime girlfriend.
    One evening, after their honeymoon, he was working on his motorcycle in the garage, just for fun.
    His new wife was standing there at the workbench watching him.
    After a long period of silence she finally spoke: “Honey, I’ve just been thinking, now that we are married, maybe it’s time you quit spending all your time out here in the shop. You probably should just consider selling your golf clubs and motorcycle along with your gun collection and that stupid fishing gear.”

    Tom got a quizzical look on his face.

    She said, “Darling, what’s wrong?”

    He replied, “For a minute there you were starting to sound like my ex-wife.”

    “Ex-wife??” she shouted. “YOU NEVER TOLD ME YOU WERE MARRIED BEFORE!”

    Tom replied: “I wasn’t.”

    drdog: “an armed citizenry is the best defense against perps

    an L.A. police office once explained this to my Dad after our house was attacked by a rogue car club in the San Fernando Valley (they had the wrong house…but were going to kill us anyway).

    This is very close to word for word what he told my Dad…and I was standing right there:
    “We CANNOT protect you from acts like this, we can only investigate the crime AFTER the fact. Arm yourself and if anyone ever attempts something like this again, KILL them.”

    My Dad fought in WWII, at Normandy, the Battle of the Bulge and other places in Europe. Wounded several times and on a hair-trigger when he came home. My Mom convinced him to get rid of his guns, though he was always prepared to kill anyone with his bare hands if they threatened his family. The day AFTER the attack, and after the advice of the L.A. cop, he went out and bought a shotgun and a pistol…and my Mom voiced no opposition that time. I still have both guns, along with ones I bought myself later on.

    I get the feeling I’m the only one whos actually not blaming the fbi for this bs in FL?
    I mean sure it’s yet another cases of things being reported to fbi before they happen but WTF did anyone expect the FBI to do here that locals couldn’t or hand not already? Do we want them getting flimmsy warrants (arrest or search) to fuck with people reported on from a ‘tip’? Is FBI supposed to just arrest anyone their tipped off too for saying stuff online and owning a gun, that’s not illegal. Seems to me locals (+state) are just pointing fingers frankly to avoid their own responsibility – to the extent there is some. Kid was whacked… bad things happened, it’s a shame, but … yawn.

    2 – Yes, her should but if this helps get that done so be it.

    11 – Never going to happen, but really it just needs to be shut down, maybe keep the forensics labs and a few other assets for states to pay to use still have some value.

    JR, 24
    PL has a whole set of posts about the Mueller indictment of some Russians.
    For anyone who doesn’t have the time or energy to read, let me post a couple of snips that were interesting to me from
    http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2018/02/why-mueller-didnt-indict-the-russians-for-meddling-in-the-presidential-election.php

    “Its very first paragraph recites that it is against the law for foreign nationals to spend money to influence US elections, or for agents of foreign countries to engage in political activities without registering. But no one is charged with these crimes.”

    Instead the actual charges are stuff like opening a bank acct under a false name and so on.

    “So why weren’t (the Russians) charged with the most pertinent crime they committed? Because Christopher Steele arguably violated the same law. He is a foreign national, and he contributed a “thing of value” to the Hillary Clinton campaign … if (Mueller) had charged the Russians with meddling in the presidential election under §30121, he soon would have faced questions about why he didn’t indict Steele–and Glenn Simpson, Perkins, Coie, Clinton campaign officials, and perhaps Clinton–for the same offense.”

    Splendid article, with this passage:

    ==>
    The left wants to defend gangstas and “transgressive” art and antifa thugs — but when the shooting starts, they blame the guns.

    The left wants to get rid of feminine modesty and masculine protectiveness and social restrictions on sex — but when the abuse and rape and harassment rise to the surface, they start whining about toxic manhood. Perhaps they should have listened to the Catholic apologist G.K. Chesterton, who wrote about the difference between reforming society and deforming it — a passage that was neatly paraphrased by John F. Kennedy: “Don’t ever take a fence down until you know the reason it was put up.”

    Here I think it is the case of ‘well you sniffed the turd, so your nose must be brown’ kind of thinking. If one was to look for fault; how about the local dept that visited the residence 39 times? If FBI erred it was thinking they had jurisdiction. Cruz as far as I know did not cross any state lines in commission of his crimes. At best there might have been a computer crime stat being broken. Question: did the unit do a referral? If they did not somebody will be up for desk assignment.
