This is not the first time I have heard of the FBI using these tactics. I am a huge fan of hunting down terrorists down. I believe we should put mad dogs down, but does poking a dog with a stick until he bares his teeth and then shooting him count as protecting us?
If the article is accurate then this practice needs to be stopped not just for reasons of justice and liberty but because it will piss off the people who will be the most likely to know of a threat. If they don’t trust the authorities they wont talk to them. This is not a new thought. It is a fundamental principle of law enforcement.
A truck I’m working on will have a transmission temperature sensor installed in the trans pan. I could weld or braze the the bung in. The pan is sheet metal and welding will almost certainly put holes in the pan so I’m going to braze it. Brazing is not something I’ve dine much of so I wanted to get a better idea of what was involved and particularly how I should handle bonding the thin sheet metal to the comparatively heavy and thick sensor bung. I went to youtube and was rewarded with this find.
I’m just starting to dig into 897473’s channel. He is an artist so some of what he does (like making earrings) doesn’t interest me but he has a bunch of great info on brazing and I’m betting even more.
