Do we really need the FBI, BATF, INS Secret Service and other Federal Agencies?

Why can't all these different agencies be placed under the command of the U.S. Marshal Services? Is having all these different agencies a matter or redundancy?

Couldn't we have U.S. Marshals, drug enforcement or investigative division, firearms and explosives division? Wouldn't the combining under one agency be a savings for taxpayers and easier for Congress to control?

Update:

Please READ the question...The US Marshal would have SEPERATE Divisions to do what the seperate agencies would do.

Update 2:

The radom selection was done for limited space.

Update 3:

I am not or have ever been a US Marshal, just a concerned tax payer.

    Combining services is a great idea. Too bad Congress never has a great idea.

    We have too many Chiefs and Department heads. The money they are paid could put a lot more people in the field were it would be better spent.

    The Department of Homeland Security could of been centered with the U.S. Marshals Services too.

    I need to comment. That there seems to be a lot of people lacking reading comprehension or are just plain STUPID.

    Good idea, but Congress likes to spend our money on wasteful and redundant programs. Also none of the agency leaders would want to surrender their fiefdom.

    Did you know that the US. Marshal is the only constitutionally authorized federal law enforcement agency?

    No. They each have a specific and different work load. Combining them would be like combining all branches of government together. You would lose all regulation.

    Whatever they are, they are much better than my country one - full of shits yet useless yet rocket high expensives to feed too!

    Respectful for their honesty and admit mistakes with compensation remedy, that's what they are earned for.

    Because each Agency is responsible for different types of crimes and jurisdictions.
