I was subjected to yet another moment of sheer stupid the other night.
My wife was watching the TV reality show DEA. They were prepping to take down a "Kingpin" in a marijuana sting. One of the DEA agents was flapping his lips at the camera...
(NOTE - I am quoting from memory)I threw up in my mouth a little bit. Your average Joe or Jane, and the media I can accept them saying as much, since they know no better. But a LEO?!?"This guy is known to have a MAC 10 machine gun loaded with Teflon coated bullets, used to penetrate our bullet proof vests..."
This is the second time out of 3 episodes that I watched this year that some DEA agent was an absolute idiot. I keep trying to convince myself that the whole thing (DEA series) is staged and all are actors, but I thought for sure I would have heard something to confirm this by now.
