How did the street preacher know Cole was a time traveler? Or the bum who called him Bob? There seems to be some kind of unexplained connection.
But Cole didn't have some kind of sixth sense identifying them as time travelers; they deliberately acted in a way that got his attention. By the same token, if they send some new guy and just tell him "try to blend in and stay away from James Cole", how's Cole going to interfere with him? The new guy could go rogue too, but you always run that risk.

They were also shown to be a high-handed, demanding, controlling and not very ethical group, so eliminating those who don't follow their program to the letter didn't seem too far out of character.
But why not just eliminate them in the future ( or just kick them out of the program, so to speak )? We see that they keep sending Cole back even though he fails to follow their program to the letter.
