Overview
The author gives us an unfiltered account of his personal experience as a Federal Air Marshal. The reader will see how a bureaucracy chartered to protect the flying public frustrates the best recruits by discouraging efforts to excel in physical training and marksmanship. Rigid bureaucratic dress codes and less than secure behavior by some managers risk identifying Air Marshals to terrorists. And even worse, some local supervisors abuse the benefits of their positions to make personal flights on the public's dime or engage in office romances with subordinates or steal government property. This book shows us the process by which recruits are taught to stifle dissent and learn to just accept and go along. The author eventually finds it impossible to tolerate these abuses. Someone has to do something about it. But can the Federal Air Marshal Service accept criticism from within? Will a whistleblower be successful? Read and find out.
