I saw this story in the Houston Chronicle...and it made me ill!
When employees of the FedGov act like this, they reflect the attitude of their bosses and their environment! At least, that's my opinion! Somewhere down the line, there should have been safeguards in place to make sure that this sort of thing cannot happen.
Federal probation officer arrested

McALLEN, Texas — A federal probation officer has been arrested on drug trafficking and bribery charges, accused of using government databases to run background checks on truck drivers for a drug-trafficking organization.
Authorities allege that Armando Mora, 36, of Edinburg warned drug traffickers not to hire three truck drivers this year because two were undercover agents and a third was an FBI informant.
Mora was scheduled to make his initial appearance in federal court Thursday. It was not immediately clear if he had hired an attorney.
You have to wonder if his supervisors knew what was going on, and maybe just getting a cut of the action! Even if they didn't know, they should have been of someone accessing the database without clearance and their jobs should be re-evaluated!
Just another example of the power hungry folks in the wrong places higher up! Sort of makes you think that the inmates are in charge of the asylum!
To me, this is the type of case that screams for execution! The same should hold true for ANY government employee found guilty of selling out to criminals or foreign countries...but that's just my opinion!
So much for the saying " Lead by example"...! How about we say "Off with their heads!" instead!
Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit on the patio for a bit, OK?
