    Hiring 30 total, which is a lot, but need to fill the spots from all the people who quit in disgust or retire the first day of eligibility.

    What Attache offices are FWS OLE in?

  • Ratatatat
    commented on 's reply
    Because of its small size and specialty niche, OLE largely flies under the radar when it comes to oversight. However, whenever there is any scrutiny (such as PEER or DOI IG), the findings are always damning.

    The best thing that could happen- on behalf of wildlife, on behalf of the American taxpayer, on behalf of basic common sense- would be to dismantle OLE completely. Shift all international cases to HSI, an agency which actually has an international infrastructure in place, not the farce OLE has. Shift domestic cases to state agencies, which is pretty much how it is anyway. This will never happen, at least not as long as they can keep up the charade.

    I actually read as much as I could of that court case you referenced a couple pages back, and it was an eye opener...to say the least! It actually reminds me of the old Border Patrol; however, the Patrol has significantly toned down over the years due to a parent agency swap (DOJ to DHS) and additional funding and oversight (government and public). Also, from what I hear from retired officers, Customs was like that as well, but the change from Treasury to DHS forced a change in culture.

    Institutional arrogance. Rudderless national strategies. Decision makers who were absolute zeros in the field. Total failure by upper management to address problem managers i.e- full blown alcoholics, non-homicidal sociopaths, Asperger types, on and on. Nepotism is rampant. *Insiders* can do no wrong, *Outsiders* are destroyed. FWS OLE's problems are DEEPLY ingrained.

    Didn't they get rid of the top guy? Or...put him on admin leave? In your opinion, would that alleviate some of the discouraging aspects of the the UFWS OLE culture since the snake's head is severed? Or is the nepotism and good ole boy system permanently tattooed onto the culture?

    I guess they are in for a rude awakening or maybe they are new members of the cult, as Ratatat puts it...lol

    Their brainwash began on Day One when agency reps welcomed them to SABS and told them they were the best of the best and the tip of the spear of wildlife LE (even though half of them probably didn't know a wood duck from a woodchuck.....)

    Those little uniforms are part of the indoctrination, as in "Look at us. We don't wear smurf suits like the rest of you proles. Don't you wish you were elite like us?"

    For the next 12 weeks, the new agents will bask in the attention of other students. CBP and BOP and even other 1811s will fawn over them. Random people in chow line will ask "What's your background?" to get insight on who gets hired. Random people in the locker room tell them they would give up their first born child to be a fws agent.

    That magical aura of elitism and exceptionalism- cultivated from day one- will last for awhile, maybe even a few years. But eventually truth burns away fog and reality will become clear: they are working for a largely dysfunctional low accountability organization which promotes and protects its' very worst....

    The Greeks had a special word for the current regime management: kakistocracy ('government by the least competent').

    That's why you should be careful about what you put on the internet. You can try to delete it, but by that time, it's already too late.
