Investigations by the FBI are premised upon the fundamental duty of government to protect the public against general crimes, against organized criminal activity, and against those who would threaten the fabric of our society through terrorism or mass destruction. That duty must be performed with care to protect individual rights and to insure that investigations are confined to matters of legitimate law enforcement interest. The purpose of these Guidelines, therefore, is to establish a consistent policy in such matters. The Guidelines will enable Agents of the FBI to perform their duties with greater certainty, confidence and effectiveness, and will provide the American people with a firm assurance that the FBI is acting properly under the law.
What’s the deal here? Are there any areas within the USA that are excluded? Because the SA that investigated my case did not follow anything about these guidelines, nor did he recognize that private property rights were Federally protected. Who doesn’t know that without having been trained to be an FBI agent?
