FBI: Gone fishin’ in SF

The FBI’s motto is “Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity.” But given the FBI sting against Raymond “Shrimp Boy” Chow — a convicted felon who was freed from prison in 2003 because the feds got him to testify against a confederate — I suspect that a more apt motto might be “Fuggedaboutit.”
