The Federal Reserve Is Hiring: Lots Of Cops

Zero Hedge – by Tyler Durden

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…

  1. I am sure that if every one owned and carried a gun that there would be no need for the cops. IMOHO, sooner or later cops always let it go to their heads and a cop turns into a pig, and a pig is a pig. Look at all the money that would be saved if their were no cops because we all carried guns, the criminals wouldn`t stand a chance.

    1. The criminals don’t stand a chance now if we start enforcing the Bill of Rights with the barrels of our guns and they know it.

  2. Were you bullied growing up? Does the thought of groping someone turn you on. Do you enjoy wearing latex gloves and having the power to search whatever orifice you desire? If you are able to score in the sub-human category on our personality inventory, you’re hired!

    1. Oh Yea Millard, it wouldn`t supprise me one bit if the cops were reuseing those rubber gloves and intentionally spreading desease from person to person. It really wouldn`t suprise me at all. I bet the cops would get off doing that. 😯 🙁

  3. Yes, everyone in government knows they need more cops, because they’re all running scared.

    I wouldn’t worry too much about any of them. They’ll find plenty of takers because there are few choices for work these days, and people have babies to feed, but when things get ugly, most of them won’t show up for work.

    (remember New Orleans?)

  4. Boy, that sure relieves my banking worries that the illegal, illicit, Greed & corruption driven Federal Reserve is stepping up securities to protect the masses that are rushing through their corrupt doors to deposit their hard earned money into a paper driven fiat debt service institution, sweet!

    Continue the fight to regain our Liberty, Freedom, Justice & Truth

  5. more ‘targets’… I mean more ‘mobile resupply pods’.
    Remember to aim for the groin so as not to ruin the good stuff they have.
