  1. Fbi agents haven’t covered their faces unlike in Mexico, where they do. The reasons should be obvious. Thankfully the USA is not as corrupt as Mexico, except for the top 1% mostly finance people.

  2. Along the lines of how the media covers airliner trouble, my favorite was when the captain died in flight. The headline read, “Captain dies mid-flight, co-pilot lands plane.” To the former, I say “News! This is rare.” To the later, I say “No shit sherlock, happens every day!”

  3. haha the us isn’t as corrupt as mexico. OK if u say so. Also Mexico does not have an FBI the guys u see wearing masks are federal police officers very different from FBI more close to special forces or SWAT. The reason they wear masks is to protect identity I mean these guys are fighting Drug Cartels so it’s the kinda job where u don’t want ur identity being known unless u have a death wish. Also FBI do wear masks. Google it.
