    The FBI and DEA fabricate evidence, steal from suspects and use murder to close those bad cases.
    Corrupt FBI and DEA use no-knock warrants to enter suspect’s homes while they are away and steal items.
    They mostly steal watches, jewelry and less frequently expensive prescription drugs by returning a second time and swapping them with fakes.
    Some of them where stealing wear item parts off of cars, swapping them with old worn out parts from their personal autos and in some cases leaving the auto in a dangerous state. They can remove a car from your garage aparently whenever they feal like it. For us common citizens this would be called grand theft auto, for corrupt FBI and DEA employees this is allowed .
    They also loosened a gas fitting to my furnace which filled my garage with gas fumes.

      No not really, but the police were made to enforce the laws of this nation. We didn’t put them here to shot first and ask questions last. You and your’e comments are so out of place. We are in 2012, wake the hell up. When do you see the NYPD go into the communities of the Irish, Italian, Jewish, Chinese, Polish, Whites and kill their son’s and fathers?…..You don’t!…….Let the shoe be on the other foot to see how it would feel. The NYPD is “Trained” to stereo type blacks & hispanics. Thats the bottom line!!!!!!!!

      • No kids Hector

This isn’t little house on the prairie and it sure isn’t mayburry!!!…….Do your damn job without trampling and killing innocent people! Your’e probably related to someone who is a law enforcement officer, and your’e probably white too. Shut your pie hole bitch, your comments are worthless!!!
