The FBI has struggled to hire enough computer scientists to crackdown on cyber security threats because of low pay, according to a Justice Department report.

Reuters reports that the FBI has hired just 52 of 134 computer scientists authorized under the Justice Department’s Next Generation Cyber Initiative that began in 2012.

The rise of cyberattacks has prompted the Justice Department to prioritize the hiring of computer experts.

The FBI’s has a $134 million budget for the program, which includes 1,333 full-time employees.

Compared to the private sector, the FBI doesn’t pay enough to attack cyber experts. Other contributing factors were drug tests and extensive background checks.

fbi needs overhaul, thoroughly.

*The FY 2014 budget request for FBI totals $8,443 million, which is a 4.0% increase over the FY 2012 Enacted.

The fbi is on a roll of unconscionable offenses, a crime spree unprecedented in human affairs,

No subjects demand more attention from the press & all media than fbi/cia/police continuing crimes of torture, imprisonment, forced suicide, and murder of our prople; yet, the biggest voices and most prominent news men of our time pretend that no such atrocities exist. To all of them I say “you are cowardly accessories to murder, mayhem and high crimes perpetrated on your behalf by the most despicable sub humans and quasi monsters ever to live on earth (fbi and company).”

Furthermore, such irresponsibility in failure to enlighten the public on vital issues of government hideous oppression is an indictment of all who benefit from this decadent culture .

*A Postulation:

supreme irony:
