History sources[edit]

As of August 2015 there is no source provided for any of the History section. It appears that a large part (if not all) is an exact copy of material from the www.fjc.gov website. Gab4gab (talk) 17:46, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

It is a copy of the FJC website, which is a publication of the U.S. government, and therefore in the public domain. Since there is no copyright violation (and no copyrightability), we are absolutely free to copy that text word for word or in paraphrase. bd2412 T 17:49, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

If the source is the FJC website then it should be cited in the article. Not being copyrighted doesn't remove the need to cite sources.Gab4gab (talk) 15:17, 28 August 2015 (UTC)

  • I have dropped in some citations. Material is drawn from several pages on the FJC website. bd2412 T 17:38, 28 August 2015 (UTC)
