"The FBI has 56 field offices (also called divisions) centrally located in major metropolitan areas across the U.S. and Puerto Rico. They are the places where we carry out investigations, assess local and regional crime threats, and work closely with partners on cases and operations. Each field office is overseen by a special agent in charge, except our offices in Los Angeles, New York City, and Washington, D.C., which are headed by an assistant director in charge due to their large size. Within these field offices are a total of about 380 resident agencies located in smaller cities and towns. Resident agencies are managed by supervisory special agents."
Well, with ALL of these law enforcement resources...
Why is it the FBI can't figure this out:
Are not these FBI (and ATF) Agents at the CSI in Aurora, Colorado?
MISPRISION OF FELONY:
United States Federal Law
"Misprision of felony" is still an offense under United States federal law after being codified in 1909 under
18 U.S.C. 4:
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.This offense, however, requires active concealment of a known felony rather than merely failing to report it.
Is it not exceedingly clear that the alleged shooter who made his first court room appearance is not the same "James Holmes" as depicted in earlier photos?
Wouldn't that be the felony crime of Subornation of Perjury? Subornation of perjury,in United States law, is the crime of persuading a person to commit perjury; [as in substitution of suspects?] and also describes the circumstance wherein an attorney causes or allows another party to lie. In American federal law, 18 U.S.C. § 1622 provides:
"Whoever procures another to commit any perjury is guilty of subornation of perjury, and shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both." The condition of suborning perjury applies to an attorney at law who presents testimony (or an affidavit), either to judge or to a jury, that the attorney knows to be materially false, and not factual. In civil law and in criminal law, the attorney’s knowledge that the testimony is materially false must rise above mere suspicion to what an attorney would reasonably have believed in the circumstances of the matter discussed in the testimony. Hence, the attorney cannot be wilfully blind to the fact that his or her witness is giving false, perjurious testimony.
Moreover, an attorney who actively encourages a witness to give false testimony is suborning perjury, which is a crime punished with formal disciplinary action, disbarment, or jail. Likewise, a false statement by an attorney in court also is a crime similar to subornation of perjury, and is punished accordingly. Hence, in the professional conduct of an attorney at law, there is a fine delineation between assisting a witness to recall occurred events and encouraging him or her to give materially false testimony. The practice of “horse shedding the witness” (rehearsing testimony) is an example of such perjurious criminal conduct, which is depicted in the true-crime novel Anatomy of a Murder (1958), by Robert Traver, and the eponymous film (Otto Preminger, 1959), about a rape-and-murder case wherein are explored the ethical and legal problems inherent to the subornation of perjury.
