The face of Federal Law Enforcement in the United States has changed over the past few decades. Particularly after the 9/11 attacks. Federal officers enforce federal laws and investigate and indict those who break those laws. Most of those crimes are white collar crimes. The FBI in particular has traditionally utilized most of it’s agents toward this end.
After 9/11 gave the excuse to reorganize federal law enforcement the FBI became more focused on terrorism and espionage. The FBI had dropped the ball prior to the attacks on the Twin Towers, having told field agents to disregard their suspicions regarding the Muslim student pilots. Someone on high decided they should join the anti terror efforts anyway.
Recently the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies have been sending officers to cities to engage the BLM protesters. This is, of course, exacerbating the problem. The federal officers are not necessary and will serve no other purpose than to prolong the protests.
But wait; what about white collar crime? It’s not as exciting as hunting terrorists or beating skinny hippy kid protesters sure, but it is necessary. It is in fact more necessary, particularly when one considers it is an imperative function of the governance of a capitalist nation. In his article “There’s Never Been a Better Time to Be a White-Collar Criminal (The New Republic).” Ankush Khardori talks about the lack of interest and decreasing prosecutions of white collar crimes. This is at a time when the number of these crimes are at a peak. Allowing these crimes to continue unabated is a threat to our way of life and gives an contrived excuse to Marxists. These guys don’t need to be wearing camouflage in Portland. They need to be wearing suits in their offices and tracking down criminals who are raping the world’s citizens and our economy.
