Description

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that "According to the DEA, up to 90 percent of all federal drug busts result from tips by informants--most of whom, drug agents concede, are members of the criminal subculture. Without these informants, agents say, they couldn't do their jobs. But many civil libertarians and crime experts think the time has come to reexamine the wisdom of turning criminals into quasi-law enforcement agents."
