DEA Agents Under Investigation in Prostitution Scandal
According to reports several Drug Enforcement Administration agents are under investigation for hiring prostitutes in Columbia. The investigation is said to be separate from the much-publicized incident involving prostitutes, Columbia and secret service agents.
"The Drug Enforcement Administration was provided information from the Secret Service unrelated to the Cartagena hotel Secret Service incident, which DEA immediately followed up on, making DEA employees available to be interviewed by the Department of Justice's Office of Inspector General," a DEA spokesman said. "DEA takes allegations of misconduct very seriously and will take appropriate personnel action, if warranted, upon the conclusion of the OIG investigation."
While prostitution is legal in Columbia and adults shouldn’t be judged for their actions unless they are infringing on the rights of another, it’s quite hypocritical of men fighting the drug war to decide what activities adults are allowed.
Yet this doesn’t come as a surprise. The DEA operates with immunity and a huge budget. They are answerable to know one and have tremendous authority worldwide.
Sen. Susan Collins of Maine says she knew of the investigation a few weeks ago, but was asked to keep it confidential until it could progress further. "It's disturbing that we may be uncovering a troubling culture that spans more than one law enforcement agency," she said.
That’s what happens when people are given unlimited power. They can do what they want while enforcing a different moral code on others. They can violate the rules of their own agency and probably think nothing will come of it. Maybe nothing will come of it.
It’s time that the DEA gets reigned in, and not because of this incident. They trample the rights of people on a daily basis with no sign of letting up. Who will finally tell them enough is enough.
