US criminal Customs

The Miami Herald reported on May 9 that negligence and criminal behaviour are rampant within US Customs, and that tons of illegal drugs and billions of dollars has been knowingly allowed across the border. Many agents clearly guilty of rampant cargo theft, bribery, embezzlement, fraud, rape and even pedophilia were not punished in any way.
The Herald found many examples of Customs officers’ illegal conduct being ignored or treated leniently by their superiors. Internal investigators complained of being stifled and harassed, and complaints against agents were often ignored or dismissed without investigation.
