Investigation: Border Patrol Investigations of Agent-Involved Shootings are shoddy

U.S. Border Patrol agents rarely are held accountable over shootings, and investigations are done in the dark, an Arizona Daily Star investigation has found.

In one case, the newspaper wrote that one agent-involved shooting has remained secret and ongoing for three years

Scrutiny on the federal agency is increasing after several well-publicized border shootings.

Over the past three years, Border Patrol agents have shot at least 22 people. Some agents have also been killed.

The Daily Star also wrote that agents are given the benefit of the doubt, and prosecutors rarely take the cases.

The Justice Department is investigating a Mississippi school district that is accused of sending predominately black and disabled children to jail without probable cause for minor offenses, the Associated Press reports.

A suit filed by the Justice Department said jail is used as “a medium for school discipline,” the AP reported.

The city of Meridian and Lauderdale County have policies that permit officials to arrest and ship students 80 miles away to a juvenile detention center without probable cause.

Superintendent Alvin Taylor said the district has been cooperating with feds.

“We’ve changed our discipline policies, our procedures in the district,” Taylor told the AP. “When I got here in the summer of 2011, I made a lot of changes during that period. We basically changed how we did a lot of things — how we handled discipline, how we handled academics, how our administrators handled procedures in their buildings.

Four teenagers were convicted of murdering a 30-year-old Chicago woman and sent to prison in 1994.

After evidence surfaced that the teens were innocent, the prosecutor’s office earlier this year released them.

Now the Justice Department wants to know how and why the four teens were convicted, the Associated Press reports.

Cook County officials are cooperating, the AP reported.

The four teens were Michael Saunders, Harold Richardson, Terrill Swift and Vincent Thames. They were convicted of killing Nina Glover of Chicago.

Editorial: Homeland Security Grants Misspent, Steered Away from Terrorism

Ediotial
New York Times 

It was no surprise that a fierce budget hawk like Senator Tom Coburn, Republican of Oklahoma, pounced on ridiculous grants doled out by the Department of Homeland Security supposedly to help local police and fire departments prepare for terrorist attacks. Mr. Coburn’s recent report on the department’s decade-long, $7 billion program, called the Urban Areas Security Initiative, offers many depressing examples of locally misspent money.

There was an armored car in New Hampshire whose duties included patrolling the annual pumpkin festival. Car-bomb barriers and surveillance cameras, purchased by authorities in Peoria, Ariz., to protect spring-training fans. License plate reading machines in Louisiana used to track car thieves. An $88,000 truck-mounted, piercingly loud device for crowd control in Pittsburgh. And $1,000 fees for first responders to attend a “zombie Apocalypse” demonstration at a counterterrorism conference in California to learn how to handle chaotic events, with actors playing the living dead.

FBI agents raided the home of former Jets offensive tackle Jason Fabini last Thursday morning, the New York Daily News reports.

Fabini, 38, denied any wrongdoing after agents were seen removing boxes from his home in Fort Wayne, Ind.

“I am not the target of the investigation and I was not involved in any criminal activity,” Fabini said in a statement released through his attorneys, the Daily News reported. “I have not been charged, nor do I expect to be charged with a crime.”

Fabini pledged to cooperate with agents.

“My first concern is obviously with my brother and the rest of my family, but I want to reaffirm my commitment to the community and to those who believe in me as a role model, volunteer, professional and athlete,” Fabini said. “I have always made service to others a priority and I will continue to do so even during this challenging time for my family.”
