Could it be a sting operation?

Like all bigots, they are fearful that they are going to be marginalized, 
and I don't think that fear is unfounded. They would seem to be mostly 
low-average in intelligence; there are those with greater intelligence 
but the reason they are are on the fringe is because they have a 
psychiatric conditions, perhaps a personality disorders, that results in 
poor judgment. 

If "you set a crook to catch a crook", perhaps it is wise that the FBI 
prefers to hire someone with 20/20 vision who does a fast 100-yard 
dash rather than a fat asthmatic geek who wears coke-bottle glasses.
