    A corrupt DEA poisoned my dog to death because I called the San Francisco U.S. Attorney General’s office to complain that the FBI and DEA where fabricating evidence and stealing from me.

    It turned out that my call brought down a thriving theft ring centered in the San Francisco Bay Area involving many D.O.J. and other law enforment employees. They where creating fictitious suspects and stealing from them.
