Gaming the System Is Easy When You Are the System

FBI agent: Uh oh, Yasir Afifi found our bug on his car.
FBI supervisor: Well, it happens sometimes. What are the results?
agent: He’s so normal and unsuspicious that he makes us look silly, sir.
supervisor: Well, that is a problem, but let’s play it by the book.
agent: Oh yeah, major intimidation incoming! This is the fun part!
supervisor: Maybe if we make him mad enough he can be radicalized, and then we score anyway.


Have you read the reports? Let the FBI track people if they need to, but that kind of intimidation is bad policing.

give me a clue so sweet and true
