Description

According to the Utne Reader, Criminal informants may be the real winners in the American Drug Enforcement Agency's (DEA) drug war. This article looks at how professional rats make thousands of dollars off the U.S. government by convincing the DEA they can turn in Class One drug offenders. Because agents with the highest percentages of Class One drug offenders earn the highest bonuses, federal agents will stop at nothing short of entrapment to find a Class One conviction. (May/June 1996)
