Re: “Mistrust Led to Ex-FBI Agent's Departure from Lawson Case

In my experience, it is unusual and rarely tolerated in Washington when active FBI agent speaks poorly of local law enforcement (including accepting or requesting any acts of "Professional Courtesy".) Publicly pointing out any faults or mistakes made by local law enforcement quickly destroys any chance of the two agencies working together when the investigation they were cooperating on ends. FBI agents leave town and leave the distrust they created in the community for the locals to deal overcome. Unlike TV homicides are not usually solved in an hour, and a few are never resolved. Part of the value of having the FBI assist with an investigation is the enormous amount of resources they have which no small town can, or a few large towns can match. It is up to the FBI agent to establish and maintain the trust with the local agency this their town, and FBI agents are required to act as any guest would when in another's "house" respectfully. However, I can understand why ex-agent Parker, finding himself nothing left to contribute might cast doubt and suspicion on the locals for his inability to provide the answer everyone expected him to deliver. I question anyone who is worth a shit to place the blame on others for not finding what they could not either. At least everyone can understand why local agencies cringe upon learning the Feds have come to town.

Re: “UPDATED: Why is Eureka Being Squirrely About Handing over Public Records?

The City is not run "by the people for the people" there is a difference between governing the City for the benefit of the people vs governing the City for the benefit the City. The City Attorney acts more like a mouth piece for the mob. It speaks volumes as to why the primary punishment given to attorneys is taking an ethics class. A Federal Judge ruled what the City was doing at the marsh wronged the 11 people who brought before him. Ethically it was wrong not to give the 130 or so who didn't have the opportunity to bring it before the court the same rights. How sad and obvious that according to the City a persons rights is dependent upon having a lawyer; no lawyer good luck the City will do whatever it can get away with.
