No, I Don’t Trust Government’s Alphabet Rank-And-File Workers

I am, frankly, tired of hearing about all the rank-and-file government agents (FBI, CIA, NSA, IRS) who are good people and that the problem is really with some of those in leadership. Here’s my experience…

My step-dad worked in auto salvage his entire life. I worked in the field for about 15 years. At one point, he bought a junkyard in a Gloucester County, NJ, town and my buy-in was to operate the business. The business did not go as expected and I opted out. He was able to sell the property and business.

The purchaser began to operate outside the law and piled up old tires which ran afoul of EPA laws. Years afterwards, I was living in Camden County and was trying to raise a family of six children. One night I received a call from an individual that I had met years before. He informed me he now worked for the EPA in Gloucester County and was on the case of the junkyard I once owned. He informed me that he had researched the title and found out that I had once owned the property, so he thought he could extract some useful information from me. Unfortunately, I had no information that could help him

He didn’t like my response so he began to threaten me and informed me that he had the authority to arrest me. I was troubled by this revelation wondering what would happen to my children if I was arrested.

The next day, after a good night’s sleep, I was able to think about the situation more objectively and I began to get angry as I realized what he had tried to do to me. I considered attempting to contact his supervisor but never pursued it.

So, do I trust rank-and-file government workers? NO! Emphatically NOT!

If they want my trust, they can earn it, one by one.

Go ahead… Change My Mind!
