FBI manning issues

CBS News
?
@CBSNews

The FBI receives, by phone and email, more than 1,000 tips a day -- more than 360,000 a year; the bureau has only about two dozen employees to handle them, CBS News learned.
5:39 PM - Feb 16, 2018

Meanwhile Mueller has 17 lawyers, two of which they haven't named.

I don’t believe it. Maybe Peter strozk should be sent to phone duty instead of HR.

So they have 35,000 employees at the FBI but only about 25 people to follow tips? Sounds like a shitty use of resources to me.

And if true, Wray needs to resign today.

Nearly 37,000 employees.

Fire every one of them.

Incompetent and stupid people.

Wait. Let me get this straight. You thought that meant that the FBI has a total of 2 dozen agents to receive the tips and follow up on them?

re: FBI manning issues
The FBI pays civilian companies to take the calls. It is similar to how the NSA contracted Booz Allen Hamilton who Snowden worked for.

It is cheaper and that is the problem.

Can civilians be trained well enough or just go through the motions?

Am I the only one who finds it odd that a mainstream media outlet is defending a government agency out of the blue?

The narrative is starting: The feds don't have the resources to monitor dangerous behavior, so gun control is the only catch-all that can prevent more shootings. Just wait.
