FBI considers copyright cases top priority

The US government has ordered its CSI teams to stop looking for missing people and concentrate on finding movie pirates. According to Techcrunch the FBI has consciously decided to give such cases lower priority in the FBI's laboratory, which is used to look at DNA evidence.

While the FBI looks for proof of movie and MP3 downloading apparent there has been a massive backlog in missing persons cases. Often these end up being murder inquiries once the labs have reported that a missing person is probably buried in the back of someone's garden somewhere.

A new report from the Justice Department's Inspector General notes that this has serious consequences for other cases. Some people are sitting in jail waiting for DNA evidence that they have not murdered someone who has actually run off with a sailor and not told anyone. It can adversely affect families of missing persons waiting for positive identification of remains.

great so downloaded movies or music is apparently WAY more important that people's LIVES. This is so appalling words cannot describe the situation.

Because getting money to the communists in Hollywood is much more important then stopping friend's daughter being molested by her flesh and blood father. One of the FBI's top priorities is supposed to be working against corruption...so why are judges intentionally turning a blind eye to child abuse not being rained in?!

One of the goals of communism is to make fools out of the FBI. They have clearly infiltrated the FBI and are manipulating their priorities.
