And when it IS a governmental group there are lots of checks and balances to prevent misuse.

But it can (and will be) subverted from within, given enough motivation (i.e. MONEY). To site a perfect example, look at the current clusterfuck that is the NSA/AT&T/White House illegal wiretapping. The only checks and balances there were whistleblowers.
