Hey! I just got a great idea. To clean up some of the corruption in Washington D.C., let's just exchange personnel from TSA to the FBI and get those former FBI guys screening passengers. Background checks? "Done in the blink of a eye!"
Roof had been arrested on a drug charge that would have blocked the gun sale had it been properly reported during the background check, the court found.
As such, Roof "should not have been allowed to purchase the gun he allegedly used that evening," Comey said.
Victims' families sued, alleging the government was negligent in its background check. If it had been performed properly, "no one disputes" it would have kept him from buying the gun, the appeals court wrote.
Guess who pays the pension?So the FBI screws up and the taxpayer is left paying out for their mistakes. Any judgement should come out of the pension for FBI employees, thus reduced benefits for those that screwed up.
