Laws are for other people

Courtesy of the aptly-titled “Danger Room” at wired.com, we learn that at least some FBI agents have been instructed that ordinary laws don’t necessarily apply to them.

One FBI PowerPoint … stated: “Under certain circumstances, the FBI has the ability to bend or suspend the law to impinge on the freedom of others.” … Like other excerpts from FBI documents Danger Room reviewed for this story, it was not dated and did not include additional context explaining what those “circumstances” might be.

FBI spokesman Christopher Allen did not dispute the documents’ authenticity. He said he would not share the full documents with Danger Room, and was “unable to provide” additional information about their context, including any indication of how many FBI agents were exposed to them.

Swell.

    Just imagine the quasi-historical FBI-centric novels one could write forty years from now.
