now that is ironic.

6 March, 2008

I was looking at the FBI’s website for Uniform Crime Report statistics for my paper on the social construction of crime waves, and I got curious.

So, I clicked the link that said “Quick Facts” and found a list of facts about the agency. There was another link to FBI Jobs, so I clicked that because who doesn’t want to say they work for the FBI?! (Okay, lots of people. But not me!)

The link to the FBI Jobs website has a certificate error, meaning that the security certificate that comes up for the site was issued to a different address.

The FBI Jobs website has a security error. You know, those people whose job it is to keep us safe from terrorism and violent crime and as number ten of their list of priorities says “upgrade technology to successfully perform the FBI’s mission.” Am I the only one who finds that funny?

Well, I’m probably the only one blogging about it. So if you hear about a girl who was yanked out of her abnormal psych class by masked men in full camo who put a black bag over her head, it’s just because I laughed at the FBI. No worries.
