Sorry — I dozed through the Fourth Amendment lecture

Says the Associated Press:

A Justice Department investigation has found that FBI agents, including several supervisors, cheated on an important test covering the bureau’s policies for conducting surveillance on Americans.

Justice Department Inspector General Glenn Fine said Monday that his limited review of allegations that agents improperly took the open-book test together or had access to an answer sheet has turned up “significant abuses and cheating.”

Hmmm … Is anybody actually surprised that FBI officials considered even their own bureau’s rules regarding surveillance to be unworthy of a little study?

  • Heck, it’s not as if the 4th Amendment, or indeed any of the rest of the BoR, is of any importance to these creatures anyway. This was probably one of those annual refresher/recert “tests” that so many of us are required to take in the workplace, tests that are of little practical importance, but that are required anyway due to some administrative/bureaucratic fiat. No doubt the only reason the FBImbeciles were taking this “test” at all was so that the bureau could show some facile “evidence” that it was “complying with Constitutional constraints on its ability to conduct surveillance against or steal from American citizens.

    Cheat on the test, cheat on the Constitution, what’s the diff? They’re only meaningless pieces of paper with no real authority to Those In Charge.
