In Topic: Unsuitable for Employment.

You're not suitable because you do not have a father, uncle, cousin, aunt in the upper echelons of ATF.  You do not enjoy the Divine Right of the Reihls.  You are better off working for someone who does appreciate you.

Have to laugh about this because I stopped crying a long time ago.  18 years of service with them and yet now when I apply for a job with them I'm told I am "unsuitable" for employment with this Bureau yet they allow this garbage to go on!  I suppose I am indeed unsuitable as I am not a crook or weasel.

Also, you're not related to someone who kissed Eliot Ness's ass; you don't have multiple affairs with married supervisors; you aren't a sociopathic bully who would cry like a bitch when transferred from Philadelphia to Trenton; you didn't flip your GOV while driving under the influence; you haven't lost firearms; you haven't let prisoners escape....all that usually cements your career in management in BATFE.

Things heard around the office when the fingers started pointing;

"not my job"

"I'm only here about the 20 ga shotgun and extra ammo. I don't want to hear about any other guns"

"Brady disclosures would have been very embarrassing"

"that's a regulatory issue"

"Oh look the Daily Broadcast just came out; it's quitting time !!!

you can't make this stuff up...

Add to that:

"It's afternoon smoothy time!"

"It's 3:00, time to head home to New Jersey and beat the bridge traffic."

"Time to go to the gym and do kettle bells with the ASAC and tell him how I should be the next TOO."

Didn't you hear?  The Philadelphia gun problem was eliminated during The Surge in 2012.  Dozens of agents brought into town on TDY for 90 days, all that meal money and long term stay residences, more taxpayer money spent well.  Just ask the SAC and his WonderBoy aka FIGJAM ("F*ck I'm Great, Just Ask Me"), they put Eliot Ness to shame with their exemplary leadership.

However, they did miss this drug and gun selling thug -- mainly because most of the Philadelphia office can't find Bucks County even with a GPS.

After all these years, FBI has now expressed an interest in arson cases.  No, not the silly bodega fires in which $40k worth of store contents are lost (does that really affect interstate commerce?).  FBI has finally realized that arson can be, and has been, used as terrorist weapon.  A couple of years ago, the same Sensenbrenner sat on a policy paper warning about the potential of using fire.  Imagine three or four simultaneous wildfires across the southwest.  Or imagine several concurrent Coatesvilles (just don't blame the Jugaloos immediately, like the Philadelphia Division SES's and the division's idiot "intel" supervisor did).

There are already internal DOJ proposals out there.  The firearms regulatory responsibility would be turned over to the DEA's diversion branch. 

As for criminal enforcement, any halfway decent police department can do the same simple drug cases that ATF has made its bread-and-butter.  The only difference is that the PD doesn't need a bunch of people making $130,000 and driving new Taurus sedans and Explorer SUV's.  And the NYPD has demonstrated that you don't need an ATF to break up interstate gunrunning rings.
