Re: Which one is the bad apple?

I'm sure there are many many good people working for the FBI. The issue really is the institution. Organisations such as the FBI develop a "personality" of their own from their own internal procedures and culture, which can be very hard to change.

Hence why there are very few racist police officers in the Met (and they get dealt with harshly), but the Met itself still manages to remain institutionally racist (allegedly). An organisation is not just the sum of the people in it.
