    I have a friend who gave up his accounting job to investigate fraud cases, but that seems like an unrealistic and unnecessary expectation for an agent. What do you base that statement on?

    Friend now retired was a US Marshall. Never said much while in service, but has plenty to say since. None of it good. Videos of people being killed, raped etc swept away chasing a bigger fish or turning some poor slob into a criminal via entrapment, then trying to use them as bait.

    Lots of good people in the ranks, but higher up to politically motivated.

    Think we may have reached a point where the corruption is about to be exposed. Won't fix it, but that is not the intent.

    The comment was a point made within the magazine article. Should have made that more clear.

    For the record, I was able to retrieve the American Rifleman article previously referenced. The excerpt which I previously attempted to recall follows...

    By the 1930s, J. Edgar Hoover had just about cleaned out his adopted agency of bums, political appointees and some downright crooks. He had begun a policy of requiring his FBI agents to be of good character and have college degrees in either accounting or the law. But he began to run into trouble when he found out that these college graduates were poorly equipped to deal with the likes of John Dillinger, Pretty Boy Floyd and Baby Face Nelson.

    In fact, things were getting downright embarrassing. Poorly planned raids were letting the crooks get away and the honest citizens get shot up. The gangsters were making the FBI look like fools.

    Suddenly, and quietly, the college requirement was being dropped in the case of many applicants. In short, Hoover began to recruit a team of shooters to his department. He enlisted a Texas deputy sheriff named Charles Winstead (who would later kill John Dillinger), Texas Rangers Gus Jones and Doc White, and OKC police detectives Clarence Hurt and Jerry Campbell. And, in November of 1934, he signed up Jelly Bryce.

    Agent Def A. (Jelly) Bryce was the focus of the magazine article.

    Good Lord, really? 1930's?

    Isn't there a requirement on the PAF that when referencing employment requirements from 80 years ago that it needs an expiration date warning? :dv
