Heart Of The (FBI) Bureau

Wayne Manis, who was in charge of the region's FBI (and is father to CSB Trustee Christa Hazel), has written a book about his experiences, "The Street Agent." Writes Wayne:

"Within the FBI, the street agent is known as the heart of the Bureau. A street agent discovers and detects criminal activity. He then decides how best to attack it. Once the target is defined and a plan is formulated, the street agent ‘hits the bricks’ and systematically dismantles and destroys the criminal enterprise. I was known as a street agent and so it is fitting that I have entitled my manuscript The Street Agent. Few agents in the history of the FBI have traveled as diverse a course as I did during my career. On the extreme left, I was undercover with the violent faction of “The Weather Underground.” On the extreme right, I worked with the “Ku Klux Klan” and investigated the Aryan Nations. Somewhere in between found me with the Mafia and their related organized crime figures." More here.
