Hoover - Director of the FBI
The F.B.I. under J. Edgar Hoover
had enough bite to scare organized crime into legitimate enterprises.
However, with law enforcement agencies defanged and declawed we are now
lectured by a talking dog on how to fortify our homes and protect ourselves
against criminals. Hoover was a member of Justice Lodge No. 46;
Lafayette Chapter No. 5 RAM; K.T. in Washington Commandery No. 1 D.C.; member
of the Grand Council Order of DeMolay.
