Stopping abuse from the inside?

It might sound like a good idea to try to effect change from the inside, but for a government drone, it's probably going to be more along the lines of "This is your job, if you have a problem doing it, we'll find someone else who will". The only way someone at the bottom of the ladder would be able to bring about any change would be through being a whistleblower: doesn't make you popular with your bosses, but it might bring in outside pressure of kinds that a place like the FBI can't ignore (such as that of legislatures). But to have a direct effect like that in any such organization, you pretty much need to be in a position of power.
