    Should J Edgar Hoovers Name be Removed From the FBI Building

    Many people have called for Hoovers name to be removed from the FBI building because of his controversial tactics as FBI director. Politicians have called it a "stain on democracy" etc. Do you believe it should be removed?

    Love him or hate him Hoover helped make and is part of US history. His name should stay. There are soooo many more important things to quibble over than this.

    No. A resounding no. He built the FBI. Took it from nothing to the arguably best crime investigation organization in the world. Do I agree with his tactics? No. Do I respect him as a person? Not really - he was nuts and vindictive and a megalomaniac. Did he do what no one else was able to do in creating the FBI because of those awful traits I listed? Yes.

    Now, if you want to talk about dismantling parts of the FBI (instead of just changing their sign) or putting a very strong leash around their neck to prevent them from infringing on our liberty... that I would be glad to talk about.

    But, if we're gonna keep the FBI, then keep the name of the guy that created it on the building. It's a sign that reflects their culture.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    I am not a fan of Hoover, but his importance in history and to the FBI cannot be overstated. If we only pay tribute to perfect people, we won't be paying tribute to any one.

    He was a ****, but he literally transformed the FBI, so no way.

    Hoover institutionally was the FBI.
