Nightmare Continues: More Accusations Against Same MWS Undercover Agent

The Portland Press Herald has another story today about another “sting” operation that took place in 2013 and 2014 in York County, that involved the same Maine Warden Service undercover officer who has been the focus of “controversial” tactics to catch “criminals” (predisposed to crime?) in Aroostook and Oxford Counties.

There have been calls for an “investigation” into what’s going on as well as a look into the written policies, which evidently are a secret, that regulate the behavior of undercover Maine wardens. The problem with such an investigation is that it is likely to be the government investigating the government, and we all know what that outcome will be.

It is my guess, without having the policies in front of me and judging from previous court rulings, that the undercover agent is following the policies. Perhaps it’s time for an examination of those policies and offer some changes.
