Ah but if they stopped 10 crimes

Then that would only be creating 250 crimes per crime stopped. Not a bad ratio for our current government.

...IF they stopped 10 crimes, that is.

The Department of Homeland

The Department of Homeland Security was created in March of 2003 with the mission of "ensuring a homeland that is safe, secure, and resilient against terrorism and other hazards where American interests, aspirations, and way of life can thrive."

As of July of this year this Department is dealing with 1,591 open criminal cases involving DHS employees and some accomplices. Some of these open cases date back to 2003.

So over a 9 year period, they have been accused of at least 1,591 criminal charges(closed cases excluded). Just doing the math that's approximately 177 criminal acts a year. These charges range from corruption involving bribery, disclosure of classified information, espionage and smuggling. There have also been violations of civil rights and liberties by employees as well as accounts of defrauding DHS programs and financial systems. Other miscellaneous charges include those involving child pornography, false statements, and “contact with foreign governments/nationals."

One must ask, does this department make us safer? More importantly, do you feel comfortable with them ordering 750 million rounds of hollow-point bullets?

i agree Dr. Ron Paul.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fms4jzrN8fY we need to ask ourselves where in the constitution is the federal government given the authority to create such agency's?

Albert Camus — 'The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.'

We need to scale back federal government and do some

proper vetting:

"The DHS IG classifies misconduct cases into four categories:
1) corruption involving bribery, disclosure of classified information, espionage and smuggling, among other things.
2) Violations of civil rights and liberties by employees.
3) Defrauding DHS programs and financial systems.
4) Miscellaneous, including those involving child pornography, false statements, and “contact with foreign governments/nationals” among other violations that “may not be criminal in nature.”"

How much money do you think was spent on investigations of 2,527 government employees? Where retribution will be made to the victims of these 2,527 cases, what will that cost, and who will be paying?

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
