    Rand Paul: Remove Top 10%...

    "On Tuesday’s broadcast of Newsmax TV’s “Eric Bolling The Balance,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) argued that the FBI’s leadership has become a “political class” and that reforming the agency is “only going to happen if we get a president who gets rid of the top 10% and brings in some law enforcement people” who are not political actors."
    Rand Paul: FBI Will only Be Reformed if We Remove and Replace Top 10% of the Agency


    I would correct Sen. Rand Paul on one point. The top people in the FBI don't need to be "law enforcement people." It isn't their job to fight riots, locate spies, or any other law enforcement act. The only closely related responsibility is dealing with organized crime in Washington, DC. I would be delighted with Rep. Jim Jordan or David Nunes running the FBI.


    When our police chief died the personnel director said the City Manager wanted to appoint me Chief of Police. I said I would work hard and deliver. Then he said, "The City Manager wants only one thing from you." I waited. "He wants your word that you will do whatever he tells you to do." When I quit laughing I turned the offer down. I was committed to law enforcement and felt I worked, not for the City Manager, but rather for the city, the community.


    I would prefer the top 10% be fired or retired, reach way down in the organization and move people up who haven't been to Corruption 101 as a graduate class at the FBI Academy, and as the Director and perhaps one level down, have requirements that don't include law enforcement experience.


    The most important duty of the Director of the FBI is to protect the department, and the public, from the politicians and their myrmidons such as our present Attorney General.

    I have to wonder if 10% is enough........I'm not saying it's not. I'm just wondering. Bad apple juices might be running here and there throughout the whole basket by now.

    In a police department, the union exists to protect the lazy, incompetent, corrupt, and brutal so if there's a union, yes, the rot can be extensive but it's not everyone. I've also seen that when forced, some union thugs could behave in a civilized manner.

    OMG - fire someone? The pain, the horror, and a federal employee to boot.

    It's more than I can take.

    Direct TV made their decision, and now they can reap what they are owed.
