I’ve recently been doubling up on stories, where I have two separate, but related stories that don’t quite justify their own piece, but should be written about. I did that for the progressive pedos yesterday, and here are two stories on the FBI.
In September, four Olympic gymnasts marched to Capitol Hill to finally tell their story. Five years earlier, they had alerted the FBI to the rampant sexual abuse by former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar.
The FBI ignored them and the abuse continued.
That’s why they spoke before a Senate committee last year to demand accountability. Everyone in America cheered them on. Everyone but the FBI and the Department of Justice.
In a Friday news dump before Memorial Day weekend, the DOJ announced that the FBI agents responsible for the failure and its sinister cover-up would face no charges.
U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland thought it best to overlook the whole mess. Ninety young women were preyed upon and the AG just swept it under the exercise mat.
I don’t get what these wahmens are complaining about. All they had to put up with was a serial molester being put in a position of power over them. Who wouldn’t want that?
“They allowed a child molester to go free for more than a year and this inaction directly allowed Nassar’s abuse to continue,” gold medalist McKayla Maroney said. “What is the point of reporting abuse if our own FBI agents are going to take it upon themselves to bury that report in a drawer?”
A week ago, the FBI and DOJ hoped that the story was dead. But they underestimated America’s greatest athletes.
Ninety women – including Biles, Maroney and Raisman – filed a lawsuit against the FBI on Wednesday.
We should all support anyone who fights against the FBI. With the exception of some fake nonsense like “they’re being too HuWhyte Supreemacist,” there can only be good political results from this.
They demand $1 billion in damages.
That might be a bit much, but go for it. When a group of young women are being sexually abused, the FBI looks the other way and refuses to investigate. And heretofore “feminist,” media hushes it up as much as possible.
Only 20% of respondents have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in the criminal justice system. That’s a 4-point drop in just one year. Expect it to drop further the next time Gallup conducts the poll.
And shockingly people are losing faith in a corrupt and self serving criminal “justice,” system. Now on to our next story.
Nearly 40% of law enforcement agencies nationwide, including the New York City Police Department and Los Angeles Police Department, failed to report their 2021 crime data to the FBI, according to data provided to Axios Local from a partnership with The Marshall Project.
Why it matters: That will result in a data gap that experts say makes it harder to analyze crime trends and fact check claims politicians make about crime, reports The Marshall Project’s Weihua Li.
Axios includes this helpful graphic which shows plenty of counties in orange, meaning they never reported their crime data.
The backdrop: Last year, the FBI retired its nearly century-old national crime data collection program and switched to a new system, the National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS), which gathers more specific information on each incident.
Let me go ahead and translate that for you. The FBI demanded counties switch from a robust, perfectly functional crime reporting system to a different system first demo’d in the late 90’s. They then forced this switch on them by 2021. This forced switch has allowed plenty of cities currently experiencing massive crime waves to not report all the crime, or even any of it. Therefore 2021 doesn’t look like the biggest crime wave year on record.
Worth noting: Law enforcement agencies nationwide have received over $160 million in federal funding to help with the transition since the switch to NIBRS was announced in 2015.
The other side: The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation transitioned to the NIBRS system in the 1990s, which accounts for the state’s higher reporting rate, TBI’s Dale King tells Axios.
- King, who works with the state data system, helped write an article with the FBI warning states to work ahead of time on the NIBRS transition.
- “Agencies that wait until 2021 to begin their transition efforts will likely discover that the process will be much more difficult than if they had begun their transition efforts sooner,” the article states.
Pure incompetence may well be at play for many of the individual cities. After all, the New Orleans mayor spent $7 million on a hair comb.
While this isn’t technically in the FBI’s hands, this was easily forseen, and no serious effort is being made to hold non-compliant cities to task. That’s because they want to hide the sweeping crime under the rug.
As always, the FBI is a political police force entirely disinterested in enforcing the laws as written.
