How Did Kidnappers of 3 Ohio Women Elude Detection for So Long? Authorities Investigating

Steve Neavling

Investigators are questioning how three Ohio women were held in captivity for a decade inside a Cleveland house without being detected.

As authorities arrested three brothers in the kidnapping Tuesday, investigators are talking to neighbors to see what, if anything, people have heard or seen at the house, Reuters reports.

Cleveland Mayor Frank Johnson defended local authorities, responding to unfounded accusations that neighbors had alerted the suspicious activity to police, the Tribune wrote.

The women were freed Monday evening after one of them alerted a neighbor.

Border Patrol Says Mountaintop Drug Spotters Eluding Authorities Because of Rules of Engagement

Steve Neavling

The head of the U.S. Border Patrol told senators Tuesday that rules of engagement are too constraining and making it difficult to combat armed drug cartel spotters while atop U.S. mountains, the Washington Times reports.

Cartels traditionally send out spotters on U.S. territory to inspect border protection. 

Border Patrol Chief Michael J. Fisher said his agents can’t shoot the spotters like U.S. troops could in Afghanistan, for instance. The rules of engagement are much stricter on U.S. soil, Fisher said.

“The rules of engagement, what we call our ‘use of force,’ applies to individuals on the street or whether they’re up on a mountaintop,” he told the Senate panel.


Obama Administration Considers Making Internet Wiretapping Easier

The Obama administration is close to stiffening surveillance laws to make it easier to wiretap people who use the Internet, the New York Times reports.

Saying it’s much easier to wiretap people using traditional phone services, FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III wants the federal government to extend the practice to monitor suspects who communicate using the Internet.

The proposal is being reviewed by the White House, the Times wrote.

Privacy advocates aren’t so happy about the proposed change.

“I think the F.B.I.’s proposal would render Internet communications less secure and more vulnerable to hackers and identity thieves,” said Gregory T. Nojeim of the Center for Democracy and Technology. “It would also mean that innovators who want to avoid new and expensive mandates will take their innovations abroad and develop them there, where there aren’t the same mandates.”

Homeland Security Department Considering Charging Fees to Cross Border

By Steve Neavling

The cash-strapped Department of Homeland Security is mulling charging pedestrians and motorists a crossing fee to help pay for the costs of operating at port of entry, the Monitor reports.

The analysis of the impact on fees is part of a proposed 2014 DHS budget.

Part of the analysis includes whom to charge and how much to charge, the Monitor reported.

“The proposed land border user fee study is intended to assess options for broadening the user fee base to help ensure that resources and services are properly aligned across all ports of entry,” Bill Brooks, CBP southwest border media division branch chief, said in an emailed statement to the Monitor. “The study would include an analysis of the impact that collecting a fee would have on CBP operations, as well as on members of the trade and traveling public. CBP is committed to its dual mission of border security and facilitating legitimate trade and travel.”

Steve Neavling 

The FBI said a terrorist attack was disrupted in its planning stages when authorities found explosives and guns inside the mobile home of a Minnesota man, the Associated Press reports.

Buford Rogers, 24, of Montevideo, appeared in court Monday after being charged with one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

“The FBI believed there was a terror attack in its planning stages, and we believe there would have been a localized terror attack, and that’s why law enforcement moved quickly to execute the search warrant on Friday to arrest Mr. Rogers,” FBI spokesman Kyle Loven said Monday.

The FBI said Rogers planned to unleash an attack on his town of 5,000 people, the AP wrote.

The “lives of several local residents were potentially saved” by the search and arrest, the FBI said in a statement, the AP reported

Steve Neavling

A day before his planned execution. a Mississippi inmate made a last-minute appeal Monday after the FBI acknowledged it erred in analyzing the forensic evidence, the Washington Post reports.

Willie Jerome Manning, 44, was to die today at 6 p.m. by lethal injection after being convicted of the 1992 killings of two college students.

The Post reported that the FBI conceded over the weekend that mistakes were made.

The main concern was of an agent’s exaggerated claim that he can trace hairs to an African American.

A unique way, my best friend used, when correcting his misbehaving pre teen child (after he once spanked her and felt so terribly bad for it) was to have the child find her own switch, go to a corner of the room and switch herself for being bad. He did not set the number of switches she was to give herself, nor did he threaten her.
