What's worse is that it's actually 600 investigations for 20,700 (not 43,600) in the CBP. So, that's nearly 3% or 1 in 34.5, but only if each investigation only targets a single agent.
When one in seventy people (1/70 = 1.4%)sworn to uphold the law is, instead, breaking it, we have a serious problem. If we were talking about one in a thousand, I'd say it was rare. 1-in-70 is rife with corruption.
Well, the comments over at The Hill are a little outrageous. I think they need to work dobletime to root out bad employees, but lets see... I find "It has a workforce of more than 43,600 sworn federal agents and officers." 600/43000 == 1.4% Well, it should be lower, but it doesn't seem to add up to "rife with corruption". Stings, monitoring, and no tolerance.
So how do the honest and trustworthy employees survive the corruption mentality that could get an upstanding employee fired or stalemated for promotion?
