Not Just the Marines

"FBI lost over 200 computers and a heap of other equipment last year:

Roughly 200 desktop computers, a plethora of body armor pieces, some night-vision scopes, multiple phones, and a number of portable computers were lost by the FBI over a six-month period last year, according to documents obtained by Vice.


WASHINGTON -- IN another black eye for the FBI, 449 side arms and submachine guns and more than 180 computers - at least one containing classified data - are missing from the law enforcement agency.

One of the missing guns was used in a homicide, officials said.


"Investigators were scouring the scene of a 2015 shooting in Southwest Baltimore when they found a blood-covered Glock pistol on the ground behind a row house. A ballistics analysis determined the gun had been used in the attack, which killed a 23-year-old man and injured a 93-year-old woman whose head was grazed by a stray bullet.

The Glock was a big break for investigators in the case, but a check of its serial number led to a chilling revelation: The gun belonged to one of their own. Two months earlier, a Baltimore police officer had reported the pistol stolen from his car.

Such thefts are not uncommon. The Trace examined records from more than 100 law enforcement agencies and found that they had collectively reported the loss or theft of at least 1,781 guns between 2008 and 2017. The vast majority were department-issued handguns, but the count also included hundreds of rifles and shotguns, as well as four fully automatic submachine guns. The firearms were stolen out of glove boxes and closets, left in airports and on the roofs of cars, and in one case, forgotten in a high school bathroom. Some were later involved in crimes ranging from aggravated assault to homicide."

    They are just imitating their superiors.


    A former FBI official has been arrested over his ties to a Russian oligarch charged with violating US sanctions. Charles McGonigal, 54, was previously the special agent in charge of counterintelligence in the New York Field office - and worked on the investigation into Donald Trump’s ties to Russia. He was arrested on Saturday afternoon after arriving at JFK following a trip to Sri Lanka and retired from the FBI in 2018.
