Former FBI Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterterrorism Division Terry Turchie is not happy with the state of the FBI these days.
Turchie believes the FBI went overboard in deploying SWAT teams to arrest January 6 participants.
He believed it could have led to an escalation of a "catastrophic" nature.
Turchie was also the head of the Unabomber task force, of which I know one of the team members.
From what he tells me, Turchie is a straight-up dude and would be a great Director for the FBI.
As we all know now, the FBI went against a lot of different protocols when it was addressing the January 6 rioters.
In addition to opening up cases around the country, SWAT teams were involved in arrests when there really was no call to do so.
Turchie stated, "The more you escalate the use of force, the more you take a chance of having possible injuries in some catastrophic failure of agents and civilians alike."
He used the arrest of Ted Kaczynski as an example.
SWAT team members were present, but they were used to seal off the perimeter, not in the direct apprehension of him.
He preferred to take a "low-key" approach to keep the temperature down during such arrests.
Kaczynski did put up a small fight, but agents were able to get him under control and once he was staring down the barrel of a weapon, he decided to obey their commands and stop resisting.
Turchie stated, "This was a very, very violent terrorist, and he was becoming more unstable.
"Even there, we didn't use the SWAT team for the arrest."
Whereas Turchie is about removing the dramatics and politics from the FBI, Comey and now Wray seem to thrive on it.
Perhaps that is why FBI agents think Turchie would be the ideal person to lead the FBI out of this current mess that Comey and Wray have created.
