FBI Lacks Experience in Cyber Crime

A recent study by the U.S. Justice Department’s Inspector General has concluded that many FBI agents lack expertise to investigate Cyber Crime cases they are assigned to. In addition, the FBI failed to share national security information or intelligence with other agencies as it was supposed to, even with agencies that shared information with the FBI, including on Cyber Crimes such as hacking into government computers or foreign companies stealing trade secrets from U.s. companies by hacking. The 9/11 Commission specifically faulted various government agencies for not sharing intelligence amongst themselves. Obviously, the problem has not been solved, even almost 10 years after the 9/11 Terrorist bombings of 2001.

The DOJ Inspector General’s report interviewed dozens of FBI agents in 10 field offices across the country. The IG’s audit concluded that the FBI’s policy of rotating agents through different assignment was hindering national security. The rotation of FBI agents resulted in hindering the ability to investigate national security Cyber Crimes like computer intrusions or computer break-ins.

What to Do If You Have Been Charged with a Criminal Offense

Getting falsely accused of domestic violence in Minnesota may put you at risk of losing your job, custody of your children, or even your home. You may face criminal charges and the accusation may damage your reputation in the community, as people will now view you as an abuser. False domestic violence accusations often happen when couples are in a contentious relationship with a risk of divorce.
The top reasons for license suspension in Minnesota include driving under the influence of alcohol, repeated traffic violations, and failure to appear in court or pay fines. Failure to pay child support, criminal convictions and felonies, medical conditions/disabilities, and drag racing can also lead to license suspension. The suspension takes away your driving privileges, preventing you from driving legally.
Motorists arrested for allegedly driving while impaired might wonder, “Can you refuse a breathalyzer?” In Minnesota, the implied consent law requires a person licensed to drive, control, or operate a vehicle to agree to a chemical test to check for alcohol or other intoxicants in that person’s body. Refusing to submit to a breathalyzer or another chemical test is a crime, often charged as a gross misdemeanor.
