neversubmit: Carth: neversubmit: Exclusive: FBI allowed informants to commit 5,600 crimes

Agents authorized 15 crimes a day, on average, including everything from buying and selling illegal drugs to bribing government officials and plotting robberies.

"This is all being operated clandestinely. Congress doesn't even have the information," said Rep. Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., who sponsored a bill that would require federal agencies to notify lawmakers about the most serious crimes their informants commit. "I think there's a problem here, and we should have full disclosure to Congress."

I feel safer, don't you?

Considering they aren't allowed to commit violent crimes and they are over 15,000 informants I don't think it matters.

How sure are you?

Very. They are overseen by the Justice Department, not Congress, as it should be. Telling anything to Congress is asking it to be on the front page of the paper which you want to avoid with sources and informant names.

manimal2878: Why don't they just send him to one of the states that has the death penalty, if he is found guilty, then the rest of the states can save money by not having to have more of these stupid trials.

The whole "Bulgar isn't guilty, the government is," disgusts me.

why would the death penalty matter? He's in his 80s. The only reason he got caught was so that he can die before being found guilty (and probably to make his case that he wasn't a rat)

why can't we both accept that Bulgar and the FBI were guilty of a bunch of shiat in the 60s-90s?
