FBI, DOJ need to give some direction, help stop killings

Posted

We all hear about the aggressive probes to take down the president by the Department of Justice, FBI and the special prosecutor. This extended and concentrated effort was to investigate collusion between the president and his campaign with the Russians. And now over one year later none has been found, to include many congressional committees. This is a large waste of both millions of dollars and a large number of investigators and lawyers.

Let's compare this to the ability of the FBI and the DOJ to use their time and resources to stop the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, the shooting at Pulse night club in Orlando, Florida, the shooting at the Armed Forces Recruiting Center and Navy Reserve Center in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and the Boston Marathon Bombing in Massachusetts. This was a total of 74 killed and 339 wounded young children, teenagers and adults. These killings could have and should have been stopped, but the FBI and the DOJ failed to provide the direction and resources to stop them. It is obvious that the DOJ and the FBI have not learned any lessons from their past failures as described below.

Last week, the FBI agents and DOJ officials used countless resources to raid President Trump's personal lawyer's home, office and apartment on possible white-collar offenses (that had nothing to do with the "alleged" Russian collusion), which clearly shows that their allocation of resources continues to demonstrate mismanagement and failed leadership.

The president should fire the senior DOJ and FBI officials (in Washington and at the Field Level) immediately and establish the proper priorities and use of resources to protect us. We all should demand that enough is enough, and we want the DOJ and the FBI to wake up and to keep us safe stop the killings.
