    Laws are fairly useless if they're not enforced. The idea that these folks would obey laws simply because they don't want to break laws has certainly been exposed as a lie given the recent conduct of the CIA and other administration agencies. They're clearly not going to the follow the law out of any altruistic belief in adhering to it.

      ... for the rest of the populace.

      Once you get 'in' with a part of the government tasked with 'safety and security', things like "laws" just get in the way.

      Ironically, the 1% feel the same way, but since the usual consequence of breaking the law "for them" is a few thousand in legal fees to make the case vanish, they simply write the check.

      If your sole and entire rationale for doing something is "It's not illegal." then perhaps you should rethink doing it.
