The Fed Is Hiring: Lots Of Cops (Federal Reserve Bank)
Zero Hedge ^ | January 4, 2014 | Tyler Durden

Posted on 01/06/2014 5:50:04 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Some may have forgotten, or not be aware, that the Federal Reserve system has its own police force. Well, it does: "The U.S. Federal Reserve Police is the law enforcement arm of the Federal Reserve System, the central banking system of the United States.... Officers are certified to carry a variety of weapons systems (depending on assignment) including semi-automatic pistols, assault rifles, submachine guns, shotguns, less-lethal weapons, pepper spray, batons and other standard police equipment. Officers also wear bullet resistant vests/body armor. On October 12, 2010 President Barack Obama signed into law S.B. 1132 the "Law Enforcement Officers' Safety Act Improvements Act", which states that law enforcement officers of the Federal Reserve are "qualified law enforcement officers" and thus are authorized to carry a firearm off-duty."

At last check, there were over 1000 sworn members of the Fed police force. And judging by the recent spike in appearances of such "help wanted" ads as those shown below, that number is too low. We expect many more job postings such as these to appear in the coming weeks and months: in fact, we are willing to predict that the closer we get to a "renormalization" of the Fed's balance sheet, the faster the hiring of Fed cops...

Position Summary:

Law Enforcement Officer

The Law Enforcement Officer is responsible for the protection of Bank property, valuables, and staff. Maintains security perimeter at building entrances, and performs routine building patrols to prevent unauthorized entry to premises, provide fire protection, and deter criminal and other irregular activities.

Enforces federal laws and Federal Reserve policies and regulations to protect life, property and assets. Responds to incidents on Bank property and provides emergency services. This position is an essential function of the Bank and may require extended work hours and/or work during emergency or crisis situations.

Isn’t it ‘fascinating’ to discover how many ‘police agencies’ here in the United States?

An alien being from another planet could legitimately state that the people of this world are incapable of controlling themselves and their desires and have developed a mechanism for imposing those controls on themselves involving ‘police forces’.

They could also legitimately state that those controls will always fail because the people intrusted to enforce those controls, ie: Laws, are only Human and are incapable in the long run of controlling themselves and their own desires.

A special police force to protect the counterfeiters, and to force people to take the counterfeit bills they produce.

That enables government protected minorities to rob productive people under color of authority.

Just what we need.

And when will they be getting their SWAT teams to take out people under the “severe penalties for early withdrawal” policy?

Or maybe they will need the SWAT teams to defend the FED when the government freezes bank accounts before they take “one time debt reduction taxes” from peoples accounts.

I am beginning to suspect this is all part of plan to quietly build up a huge federal police presence without alarming the sheoples. If Obowmao just tripled the size of the FBI, there would be a lot of questions asked. So instead he spreads it around various smaller groups. We now have FBI, Homeland Security, IRS, Federal Reserve, Social Security, ATF, Secret Service, and probably other departments all with some significant number of police officers.

This is an end-run around the Posse Comitatus Act. It gives the Feds their own internally focused military to keep us in line.

It could be interesting if they are involved in a Wrongful Death incident. Government police agencies are protected by sovereign immunity. The Fed however is a private entity, with VERY deep pockets. Just cause Obama said they can carry guns doesn’t mean when they use them they can dodge stuff like the other three letters agencies can.

All hail the money cops! Invest wisely, or else. Debtors prison 2.0. Just another example of how all of the wealth that you have earned over your lifetime, does NOT belong to you, but is only a contribution to the greater good, peasant. Once you accept this fact, the much easier you’ll be to deal with. What? Did you actually think that the feds would confiscate all of your savings and retirement funds by asking pretty please?

And here everyone thought I was crazy by using my retirement funds to buy survival gear and firepower.

If the powers to be want to take from me what I have rightfully earned, they will have to pay dearly for it. There’s a price to pay for not abiding by the Constitution, and nobody living in the US is above the law of the land. Violate the law, and I will exercise my right to redress my grievances, whether you like it or not. Sound good?

Yes, sounds good; some of my family was impacted, I was not; and they did not have any recourse: who would they go after?

The way this works, it is the feds that just take what they want; I would be interested in knowing what one could do in that case, as the feds hide behind a wall of secrecy; there is no ‘individual’ responsible, just as the system was designed to protect themselves.
Those in office are protected real well, since they fear due to their actions.

Do I see this right?

This is nothing new. The Fed has had a police force since it was started in 1913. After all, they do keep boatloads of the fiat there and during the depression they were the target of some gangster raids.

BTW, here's a Thompson they keep on display at the KC Fed.

That’s called a “protection racket” as employed by organized crime syndicates. Put into perspective, most federal agencies could be successfully prosecuted under their own RICO statutes. The only reason they aren’t is because the law and the lawless are one and the same.

The only difference between the US and the rest of the world, is that under the Constitution (ie: the law of the land), we have a moral obligation to shoot the sorry bastards if they get too far out of line, and knock down any would-be dictators or despots, much to the dismay of their cronies and sycophants.

The "shareholders" received dividends of $1.6 billion in 2012, the US Treasury received $89 billion.
