How to Get Away with Committing Crimes

Do you want to commit crimes and not worry about any consequences? If so I have good news, you can commit any crime you want and not worry about being arrest so long as you do it on the state’s behalf:

The nation’s top drug and gun enforcement agencies do not track how often they give their informants permission to break the law on the government’s behalf.

U.S. Justice Department rules put strict limits on when and how agents at the FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives can authorize their informants — often drawn from the ranks of the criminals they are investigating — to commit a crime. But both the ATF and DEA acknowledged, in response to open-records requests and in written statements, that they do not track how often such permission is given.

Is anybody surprised by the fact that one criminal organization has no problem giving another criminal organization permission to commit crimes? While it was known that the state often gives informants permission to commit crimes it was also assumed that the state kept track of such granted permissions. If the state was interested in law enforcement you would think they would keep track of the times they’ve authorized thefts, smuggling illicit substances, or more heinous crimes. Instead such permissions are thrown down the memory hole. The lesson from this news is clear, if you want to commit crimes become an organ of the state.
