DOJ Special Agent in Charge

I received a letter, dated 8-11-08, Tuesday from Glenn G. Powell, Special Agent in Charge, DOJ OIG Special Operations, Investigation Division. The text of his letter follows:

Dear Mr. Keegan:

The purpose of this letter is to acknowledge receipt of your correspondence dated March 17, 2008. The matters that you raised are more appropriate for review by another office or Agency. Therefore, your complaint has been forwarded to:

Federal Bureau of Investigation
Inspection Division
935 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, D.C. 20535

Any further correspondence regarding this matter should be directed to that office.

I hope this answers any questions you have relative to this matter.

Glenn G. Powell
Special Agent in Charge

I had filed two complaints against DOJ (FBI) employees with the DOJ OIG. When the DOJ OIG didn't respond, I filed a FOI/PA request to obtain copies of my complaints. The DOJ OIP replied with a no-records response, i.e. they lied and said that there are no records. The DOJ also returned previous FOI Appeals to the FBI for processing of my original FOI/PA requests- the FBI lied and said that there were no records. The FBI had denied receiving my EXPRESS MAIL charging the FDLE and others with criminal misconduct. I still haven't received a reply to those Appeals returned to them by the DOJ from the FBI. This is the standard tactic that any law enforcement agency uses to cover-up misconduct by another agency; professional courtesy, if you will. They cover-up for each other. In the case of the Florida Governor's OIG, they returned my complaints to the FDLE, which refused to investigate itself. So much for checks and balances.

Special Agent in Charge Powell's letter is an example of things to come when the DOJ's new proposal to ease police spy rules reported in the Washington Post takes effect. Actually, if you've read any of my posts in this thread, you'll see that they have been in effect for quite some time. The DOJ's proposal would make it easier for cops to collect "intelligence" on Americans and share it with federal agencies. You should be concerned. Just as the White House's, DOJ's, and state and local spokesmen will assure you that these "new" spy measures won't be abused and that there are checks and balances, I can assure you that they will be abused and there are no checks and balances. Adios, 4th Amendment!
