A fired sheriff's deputy alleged to have stolen drugs while working for the DEA hoped to use a gang of strippers to take over the Shoreline drug trade in suburban Seattle, federal investigators now contend.

Like a boss.

"DEA investigation puts dangerous meth dealer behind bars..."


If they actually prosecute the agent, yes that kinda surprises me, actually.

Facing a host of state and federal charges, ex-King County Sheriff's Deputy Mitchell Wright is alleged to have given "free samples" of methamphetamine and heroin to strippers he hoped to recruit in a scheme to remake himself as a drug kingpin.

First, you get zee drugs. Zen, you make little 'free sample' baggies. Zen you get zee women.

Sounds like the makings of a very interesting movie. Not Oscar worthy, but entertaining non the less.

Cops go bad from time to time - it happens.  To clear up what I'm sure will be some popular misconceptions ... DEA Task Force officers are local cops who work with the DEA.  They are hired by a local department, they are trained in a local police academy, they work for several years in their local department and then, typically, they make friends on a case with a DEA agent.  This agent then sponsors the local cop for TFO status, which is almost always granted, and then that local officer gets a silver version of the gold DEA/FBI badge.  At that point, the TFO typically becomes autonomous - he works for his local PD and is paid by his local PD (which often means he's making more than his DEA counterparts), he works with a DEA unit and technically answers to the DEA unit group supervisor, but he can only be disciplined or fired by his boss at the local PD (because that's who he works for and gets paid by).

With several exceptions (terrific cops), it has been my experience that most TFOs stop doing any work the instant they get untethered from their own local PD.  If they don't feel like doing any work on a particular day, they tell the DEA supervisor they have something they have to do at their local PD.  Then they show up at the local PD and sit at a desk and do nothing (because they don't have a "team" anymore with the local PD, and nobody who feels like their direct supervisor).  Or alternatively, they don't even show up at the local PD - because as far as his PD is concerned, he's probably working with the Feds on something important.  These people become untrackable (too much effort to figure out where they are), and generally just stop working hard.  They'll make one or two cases a year (on mostly some other agent's work) and nobody asks any questions.  The local PD is just happy to have a liason with the Feds.

All of that said, this guy wasn't a DEA Agent.  He was a local cop that worked with the DEA.  It's an important distinction.

The Philly police dept chimed in to call him an amateur.

"It was while working under DEA supervision that Wright is alleged to have stolen tens of thousands of dollars' worth of drugs"

What's the big deal, it's just tens of dollars worth of drugs?

DEA are all criminals, really.

Time to shut down the free lunch for all these ridiculous three-letter asshole clubs.

Another reason why we should LEGALIZE!!!!

The meth dealing DEA agent probably ruined less lives than the ones who are actually doing their "job".

There have to be thousands of DEA agents and cops doing this. The ones that can do it for more than a few months are just a little less stupid and a little better at keeping a low profile.

Gang doesn't seem the correct term for a group a strippers, maybe harem or scrum (noun. a confused crowd of people pressed close together and trying to get something or to speak to someone).

The real reason cops are against legalization: cuts into their business

His problem was that he depended on a bunch of drug addict strippers to run his operation. It is generally not a good idea to depend on a bunch of people who decided that taking off their clothes was the best way to support themselves, to run your criminal empire. These people are not generally that smart if that is the only way they can figure out how to support themselves.

Anyone seen Cruiser?

Put him in general population in a federal lock up with no special treatment or protections. If cops knew that this would be their fate they may be less likely to betray the public trust.

Actually, he was a criminal with a badge.

"Gaggle" is the group name. It's called a gaggle of strippers.
