Captured! How J. Edgar Hoover Made It Possible

As we celebrate the triumph and of the FBI and other law-enforcement agencies and heroes in the Boston bombing case, let's not forget the man who virtually invented modern, scientific crime investigation - J. Edgar Hoover. 
Without him, there would have been no FBI and no systematic, analytical approach to cracking cases. His alleged failings and foibles aside, Hoover created a national crime-solving networks second to none. 
For that alone, he deserves to be remembered with gratitude.
