03/20/2005 Archived Entry: "Bumbling DEA agent suspended"
LOL! THE DEA AGENT WHO SHOT HIMSELF IN THE FOOT as part of a "gun safety" demonstration has been suspended.
What's weird (if this news story is accurate) is that he doesn't seem to have been suspended for his verifiable incompentence, but only because some unknown person "leaked" the video of his ineptitude to the Internet. Seems it's a problem that this undercover agent might be identifiable now. Mere idiocy and arrogance, on the other hand, were no drawback to his job.
I'm not quite sure how anyone can "leak" video of a public event witnessed by dozens of people. Also not sure why an undercover agent would be appearing in public with the giant word "POLICE" on his chest. But there you have the story, thanks to the alertness of Wolfesblog's own confidential informant, atek3.
Hm. Will Mr. "I'm the only one in this room professional enough that I know of to carry this Glock 40" now be featured at Who's A Rat?
(And thanks Karen at TCF for the reminder and update on that site.)
