    DEA Agent Is Suing Government For Allegedly Releasing Video Of Him Shooting Himself In The Foot

    Undercover DEA agent Lee Paige learned the hard, painful way that whatever happens on video… immediately goes on YouTube. Paige is currently attempting to sue the U.S. government for releasing a video of him shooting himself in the foot with a Glock during a presentation about drug education at a Florida community center in 2004. In April of 2006, Paige filed a complaint alleging that the video’s release harmed his reputation after it appeared online and was broadcast on several television news shows. According to Paige, the DEA possessed sole footage from the talk and, therefore, someone within the department

    Technically, the Privacy Act actually punishes the release of embarrasing information by government agencies, so he might win his case. And, he did keep talking and doing the demo after he was shot, which is fairly hard core. That's not to say that he isn't an idiot for mishanding his weapon...

    SO . . . someone from the office releases a copy of this tape and it's the governments fault? Find out who released it and go after them. You would think he'd have to prove complicity to be able to sue the department for it.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Yes and no. I had to do a 15-6 investigation a few years ago on an identify theft issue that involved the loss of some documents from our headquarters, so I had a grand ol' time acquainting myself with the Privacy Act. The person who released the tape may be held criminally liable, however, the chain of command had an obligation to safeguard the information. If it can be proven that they failed to do so though negligence or malice, then they, and therefore the government, can be held liable.

    So DEA agents aren't covered by the presumption of accomplishment and nobility?
    How about Border Patrol?
