CNN Prints List of ‘Ethical Pitfalls’ Within the Walls of the FBI.
CNN got a hold of some outrageous and scandalous FBI disciplinary reports, marked “not for public dissemination,” The reports had been emailed to all FBI employees, with the intent to “educate employees about the Bureau’s standards of conduct and to aid employees in steering clear of ethical pitfalls.” Hmmm, just what is an “ethical pitfall”?
Well in this case “ethical pitfall” means “Sexting”.According to CCN’s report, FBI assistant director Candice Will told them that the FBI is experiencing a “rash of sexting,” with employees using their Bureau-issued Blackberries.
But, sexting is not the only issue or “ethical pitfall” going on behind the scenes at the Bureau. Other reports detail acts such as buying sexual favors from a “massage parlor,” pointing a gun at a dog, and even looking at child porn. Here a short list of the “crime[s] and punishment[s]” for each agent. You can see the entire list at CNN’s site.
