In addition to helping decipher their Lil Wayne albums, the Justice Department is seeking Ebonics experts to help monitor, translate and transcribe wire tapped conversations. The DEA wants to fill nine full time positions. From the article: “A maximum of nine Ebonics experts will work with the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Atlanta field division, where the linguists, after obtaining a ‘DEA Sensitive’ security clearance, will help investigators decipher the results of ‘telephonic monitoring of court ordered nonconsensual intercepts, consensual listening devices, and other media.’”
