How to Become a Bounty Hunter

Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch Named Fed of the Year for 2014

By Allan Lengel

Loretta E. Lynch, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York in Brooklyn, has been named Fed of the Year for 2014.

Lynch, who was appointed to the post by President Obama in 2010, is known as a solid leader with strong management skills. She has shown a steady hand in leading the office, which has indicted a number of high-impact cases without worrying about generating media publicity.

A graduate of Harvard Law School, Lynch’s skill set and professionalism made her a natural pick for President Obama, who has nominated her to replace Eric Holder Jr. as Attorney General.  She’s gotten the endorsements of law enforcement including the the FBI Agents Association, which said in a statement in November:

“The FBIAA appreciates the importance of Attorney General leadership, and we look forward to working with Ms. Lynch, who has been a strong supporter of FBI Agents from her days as a trial attorney to her time as United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York”

This is Lynch’s second tour of duty as head of the office in Brooklyn. She headed the office from 1999 to 2001 under President Clinton.

Her office is known for its steady flow of indictments ranging from mob cases to public corruption to stock fraud.

She is the second U.S. Attorney to receive the award since it was first given in 2008. The first year, the award went to then-Chicago U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald.

Besides Fitzgerald, previous recipients have included:  Warren Bamford, who headed the Boston FBI (2009), Joseph Evans, regional director for the DEA’s North and Central Americas Region in Mexico City (2010) and Thomas Brandon, deputy Director of ATF (2011) and David Bowdich, special agent in charge of counterrorism in Los Angeles. Bowdich was just named assistant director in charge of the LA office.

WE THE PEOPLE, of these Great United States respectfully proclaim that with our many contacts to Lorreta Lynch regarding her nomination to become United States Attorney General as Lynch has joined a group of the highest ranking law enforcement officials that premeditated all their sworn oaths of offices, by not replying to our many contacts to start our program, Truly Reforming Law Enforcement within the nations only law, Oregon Senate Bill 111 Law Enforcement Use of Deadly Physical force mandated to be in full force July 1, 2008.
All federal law enforcement bureaus must follow all major steps of said program to save thousands of lives and millions of $ to pay for litigation for the very worst officers that “Kill At Will Without Due Cause.”

Per FBI records in 2012 Portland, Oregon had the least murders of 20 that must be compared with Chicago of 500 Murders with the only changes of following said law at Portland.

Lynch must resign or be fired if she continues to just ignore these factual allegations.

Make every day terrific,
