These Powerful Predators Keep Getting Away With Abusing Women

FBI boss James Hendricks had so many sexual misconduct cases that his office called him a “skilled predator.” After supervising literally hundreds of subordinates, many of them women, he finally got exposed.

But he isn’t the only one.

Within just a four-year period, the FBI had 343 sexual misconduct offenses. Hendricks in particular has several accusations of groping his employees’ legs and breasts. 

One agent said she was raped by another boss in a car, and suffered from blackmail, stalking, and even torture!

Hendricks recently updated his own website as a “former FBI agent” to say that he “emphasize[s] personal and team accountability” and “diversity hiring” while on the job. Seems like those terms are meaningless.

“It is the policy and practice of the FBI ... to allow senior executives accused of sexual assault to quietly retire with full benefits without prosecution,” attorney David J. Shaffer said in a new lawsuit aiming to rip off the curtain shielding these predatorial bosses. In other words, they face literally zero consequences.

It isn't just police departments that are harming the people. It's authorities like the FBI, too. They're gunning down Black revolutionaries outside the office – and preying on women inside it. This system allows people like this to commit terrible harm, then retire with full benefits like nothing happened!

This is a system we need to get rid of.
