why on earth an FBI agent suddenly starts speaking about ATS with a person who he has met just a moments ago? weird & bit creepy...

Perhaps the agent felt free to talk since OP is also in law enforcement bussiness, but if this happened to be some sort of covert operation and the 'scumbag' he mentioned happens to read this, then that guy's cover is blown specially if he saw a cop talking to this guy for 15 minutes.

Or it could be that Mr. FBI agent was running rcwj's information at the same time rcwj was running his. Maybe rcwj has an FBI profile with a little footnote "ATS Member"

No offense to OP, but I think something has been omitted that led to such a question. As someone with a previous career in law enforcement myself, it is completely off the wall that the FBI would just throw that out there. Not being here long enough to be familiar with OP's posting history, I'm skeptical that this went down exactly as he says.
Frankly, if it would have happened to me, I would wonder if I hadn't been targeted for the question in some kind of FBI "fishing expedition." I just think the odds of running into the FBI and having them ask you about ATS when you are coincidentally a member is odd. I don't know any other law enforcement people who are members here. I could be wrong . . . maybe some info has been left out that might clarify.
Maybe the OP is really the FBI just "fishin."

I know for a fact several DoD personnel visit here as well as some other alphabet agency folks. They all say the same thing..."cool".

LOL...don't shoot first...PLEASE!
Yeah, I don't like guns anyhow. Not because I got an itchy trigger finger because I don't. I was raised with 'em and just ain't all that impressed by them. And as long as there remains an open grocery market, I won't need to hunt to survive!
I have a large appreciation for public servants. Thanks.

There have been some posters here that say they are in law enforcement. There have been some posters here that will not say what their employment consists of, only that it is something governmental. There have been posters that will imply that they have something to do with something that they cannot say.
Yet all of them agree that there is nothing to worry about at all in the least about their, or other similarly employed people who have an interest in the site. Ok. I am that far and I believe I'm on to something.
So, taking the approach of someone who doesn't really think about such things, I would be aware of such participation at this site. Does it have an effect on how I post or what threads I participate in? No, because like they have all agreed there is nothing to be paranoid about.
Now someone who may have something absolutely groundbreaking to offer the site and knows that this site may be frequented by connected individuals or organizations will be inclined to keep it to themselves at this point. Do I see an agenda here? I might, I just might.
So thank the FBI and the other shady organizations for reducing the importance and quality of the site. In a very well orchestrated thread they have innocently told us all that they are watching out for the real whistle blowers. They have planted that seed and yes we are all aware that their is absolutely no where to get the truth out now.
I believe that their is a member who has some very important information that will not be shared now. Or have I gone over the edge? I don't know, you be the judge.
