I don’t offhand remember your prior screen name but I do remember your former and glad to see still current avatar. I had to copy it and save it to my desktop before I could open it to see it more clearly. And once I had done so, I kept it on my desktop because I liked it so much!

Sadly, the only thing about this story that really surprised me was that it was in a school in the UK instead of one in the US.

“…we expect them to be tolerant and respectful of others’ views and opinions.”
Yeah there's too many holes in this to be taken seriously. I know this government is corrupt to the core local state and feds but this article just sounds stupid to me.
Perhaps he had a friend on the PD do it for him?
Actually, he is the former fire chief. He retired as chief and was subsequently hired as the Fire Marshall.
Anybody can run someone's license plate. Check out publicdata.com. I could do it now for any Oregon plate.
Years ago my apartment was broken into and I suspected my neighbor. The next day he jumped off his balcony to try and kill himself. My father in law was the fire chief of the department that responded and he looked up all sorts of good information. Turned out he was a 17 yr old convicted sex offender. I went to the apartment manager with the info and got him kicked out of the complex. I don't know how my father in law was able to find this out, but he did with no problem.
He probably had help looking this up from a friend in the police dept.
You must live in a big city. Small towns don't have fire marshal
"Briels is a member of the Community Committee for Public Safety, which is a local group that’s expressed interest in taking over for the Bundy protesters to work to reclaim local rancher’s land rights when and if they leave."
This committee may have the power to do that. I'm guessing though.
How does running a license plate come back with "undercover FBI agents"?!
Does the FBI have special license plates for their "undercover" agents?!
Something is fishy here.
All it takes is for some computer programmer under the direction of an IT manager or something to set a yes access flag for the Chief. ...maybe the fire chief has some responsibilities of arson investigation which gave him the right to have inquiry capability into the local and national systems. Before he knew they were FBI, he could well have thought they were criminals and a tag check might be justified. All speculation on my part of course.
I was a dispatcher in Oregon for almost 20-years. Most police & Fire rigs have a CAD system where they can access DMV, LEDS & NCIC without going through the dispatch center. The return on the plate probable said restricted. The Chief can easily connect the dots especially in a small community.
Small town it happens
Wow none of yall listened to the interview. In the video he says he spoke with the police and they ran the plates for him. The article is poorly written.
Even if he could run the regustration check, which if he was hired back in as a Fire Marshall MIGHT give him power to do so, although typically it has to be related to an investigation, IF he could, it WOULD NOT come back as undercover FBI. Three things would happen upon running that tag. It would either come back as not on file, or registered to the United States Govt., but it WOULD NOT say in any way or form Agent or FBI. Thirdly, if it was registered to the federal government-FBI, the FBI would automatically get a generated message saying that registration was ran. The other thing was, how did these men supposedly get inside the armory, they aren't kept unlocked, and if somebody unlocked it, of which very few have keys, they are required to stay there until they leave. Something smells rotten and it isn't the water.
in smaller communities the fire chief has the same authority,as a fire marshall

This never would have happened if he had been a white former NFL star. ;)

I FULLY SUPPORT EXTENSIVE BACKGROUND CHECKS.
And we should start with an incredibly thorough background check on the POSPOTUS. Yet all his records are sealed. Gee, why is that?
