FBI Disciplines Employees For 'Sexting, Drunk Driving, Paying For Sex And Dating Drug Dealers'

***SNIP

Between 2010 and 2012 the FBI disciplined 1,045 of its 36,000 employees. Eighty five of the staff were fired by the organisation. The documents detail a range of misdemeanors from the serious to the silly.

One FBI supervisor "repeatedly committed check fraud and lacked candor under oath." One employee was involved in a drunken domestic incident where they 'refused to relinquish their weapon' to police, requiring them to physically subdue him.

A number of officers were charged with driving under the influence, one used a stolen credit card to buy petrol and another was involved in a child pornography investigation.

One female officer was disciplined after she emailed a "nude photograph of herself to her ex-boyfriend's wife", and allegedly harrassed the couple, despite warnings.

1. 1045 of its 36,000 employees. Around 2.9%.

At your place of business do you think 2.9% of your fellow employees are potentially guilty of these sorts of crimes? If you are self employed do you think you commit crimes 2.9% of the time?

2. I doubt it.

Just trying to roll that around in my head I would guess the times that a co-worker has committed a crime--again guessing but mostly DUI--the rate is probably well under 1% for my entire time in the workforce.

And none of my coworkers have ever been responsible for enforcing any of the laws they may have broken. That I believe makes a big difference.

3. Yeah, 2.9% seems REALLY low for my company....

don't want to say what it is, but we're probably at least at 10% minimum.

8. I never get to have any fun at MY job!

Don't you think that guy who wiretapped his boss' office should get a promotion instead? Isn't that what the FBI is all about??
