A reasonable comment! The sky must be falling.
And no, this is not alice, and I am not from Canada.
True and this is not me and I know it's not you.

If it were you then you would know so it's not you for sure.

Now that we figured out it's not you and it's not me because if it was you then you would know and if it was me I would know.

So it's sure not us, thank God :)

And already the stoning process begins?

Contrary to what most believe, not everything put out by the media should be presumed facts. In all actuality, time is money.. so maybe given such little information it's easier for the press and those reading these stories to put aside the fact that although we are human and may make mistakes.. who cares? talking trash is fine?..

You now have a Federal criminal record and nothing will erase it. This can be a real inconvenience in just about everything you do. You will always be reminded of it.

Why change your name to "Tod", Alice? Only goes to show how racist your are to Hawaiians and trying to hide behind a man's name, which you prefer to call an "adomination" of the humans...
Yeah, you and your "christians" beliefs are nothing more that racist self-annointed bigots that have exterminated many native peoples throughout this world and preach your "high polluted" values upon others.
Amen. It makes me wonder why someone who claims to live here yet is so hateful towards their host culture. Is this why the Aloha Spirit is no longer extended freely?? Many claim achievements only to justify their own failures.

Actually, the wife knew EXACTLY what she was doing and needs to be penalized harshly. It doesn't take us to knew her personally; she was entrusted with the highest STANDARD OF ETHICS that are supposed to exist within this country. She probably had a pretty good idea that looking into the FBI database files concerning her husband's activities was ILLEGAL unless she was ORDERED to do so as a result of an official FBI investigation. Highly unlikely THOSE were her orders. She needs to get hammered hard. Knuckleheads infiltrating and damaging our country; throw the book at 'em.
You say she knew exactly what she was doing,well you know JACK!!! As I said, it takes a smart person to know that she was used and you know nothing about this, because you are one of those that believe everything they read. HOW SAD!! You are right in one sense, all these drug dealers should not be given any deals. They should be held for the mess they created. How well will he fair now!! I wonder. Let's hope he's put in the general population when he goes to prison,where ever that may be. Will he be smiling then?!!

The Aloha Spirit or more so, the "Hawaiian-ness" which is synonymous to Aloha and internally connected to the Spirit has been and continue to a certain degree in Hawaii's native population. It's quite unfortunate, the Hawaiian Nation and it's unique culture was not given the opportunity to mature and teach this perverted world how to live in harmony with Earth's diverse peoples and its finite natural resources.

It is this Aloha, that most only imagine but cannot grasp its meaning simply because they don't really practice it! Only those mature enough to truely understand themselves without the egotistic stupidity that prevails in most, than the mind is clear to fully appreciate such noble attributes.

Drug dealers need those tough on drugs laws to keep profits high and keep them in business.

Three cheers for our elected officials! The drug dealers and drug money launderers best friends.

Screw the public and keep the party rolling.

Money! Money! Horray!!!

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that she entered a computer level site of security she didn't have authority to do (conscious poor decision number one) and then retrieved information (poor decision number two). She then took that information and verbalized her thoughts to someone who has no clearance, FBI ethical standard to abide by, or who took an oath upholding the values of her employer or job (poor decisions number three, four, and five). I'd suggest she knew exactly that what she was doing was wrong. Hammer down...

Anyone know what the status is of the other people involved?

Hopefully they all get time behind bars. It'd be sad to find out they just got a small slap on the wrist and are free to continue selling drugs to our children.
