Summary:

The U.S. Marshals Service tailored its agents’ operations to enhance a key lawmaker’s "ride-along" experience. Emails released in response to a FOIA request showed a Marshals task-force supervisor seeking advice for which suspects to pursue the morning of King’s ride-along. The Marshals Service may end the program after Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), then Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, violated a federal policy against publicizing video footage of the interior of a suspect’s home by posting a clip on YouTube.

Notes:

TPM Muckraker used FOIA to obtain the email from the U.S. Marshals Service.
