thats easy, the government wants to go after all those Americans who are hiding their money overseas and not paying their taxes
OK, so they have money over seas, so? What does this have to do with giving a NON us police force
immunity here in the states?
the 2009 offshore tax amnesty is about to end, (anyone hiding money over seas can come forward, pay a fine and not go to jail). this all goes back to a legal deal with UBS and a few other foreign banks and the US government, these banks will make information about their clients available to international investigators.
OK, this part I get, but why do they need immunity here?
the us government can not walk into a bank in a foreign country and demand the bank disclose all their secrets. to even try the us government would first have to negotiate with the government of the country where that bank is located, then in some instances negotiate with the bank, usually ends up in the legal system. the whole processes can take years and cost a lot of money, not to mention the fact that the bank usually informs its clients of what is going on. with interpol they have people in both countries who can quickly access information, obtain warrants, and conduct investigations.
OK, again I get it. It's a paper work pass, they can do this without total Immunity.
So again, why do they need total immunity here? Unless of course they intend
to do shit that our own police will not do. As in something ILLEGAL, constitutionally illegal.
All men should know Honor first, above all else!
Honor is not holding your hand out for something you did not earn.
Honor is not forcing your ideas, or belief on others.
Honor is not something given to you by way of job, or title.
Honor is learned, earned, practiced and respected by all decent men and women.
