Former FBI Director Louis Freeh was appointed by federal judges to investigate a court-supervised administrator of BP’s multibillion-dollar settlement, the Associated Press reports.

Freeh, a private consultant, was named a “special master” by U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier.

Freeh is to investigate whether an attorney on the staff of claims administrator, Patrick Juneau, received inappropriate payments.

The AP reported that Juneau is accused of receiving a portion of the settlement proceeds before he started working on the deal.

Sheriff’s deputies in the  Los Angeles area  are accused of unlawfully targeting black residents in public housing, the Associated Press reports.

Deputies for the Lancaster and Palmdale Sheriff’s Departments are under investigation for allegedly making unnecessary stops, seizures and force.

The findings follow a two-year investigation, the AP reported.

“While our investigation showed significant problems in LASD’s Antelope Valley stations, we are confident that we will be able to reach an agreement that will provide meaningful and sustainable reform,” Roy Austin Jr., deputy assistant attorney general, told the AP.

Border Patrol Seeks Weaponizing Domestic Drones Amid Serious Questions

Border Patrol officials are hoping to soon use “non-lethal weapons designed to immobilize” people on surveillance drones, the Atlantic reports.

The discovery comes from documents obtained by the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

“This is the first we’ve heard of any federal agency proposing using weapons on drones flown domestically,” the EFF wrote. “The CBP has, without broader public discussion, considered this stop – combined with the fact that he agency is planning to sharply increase the number of drones it flies – should cause some serious concern for Americans.”

Attorney General Eric Holder has previously said that the president doesn’t have the authority to use weapons on drones to kill Americans not engaged in combat on American soil, the Atlantic wrote.

Voice recordings of accused mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger were played at his murder and racketeering trial Tuesday, showing a different side than the relatively quiet defendant that the juror has so far seen, the Boston Globe reports.

The recordings capture Bulger talking about murder, guns and funneling cash.

“Pa-pa-pa-pa-pow,” whispered Bulger, during the recorded conversation on Oct. 13, as he mimicked the sound of machine gun fire.

Bulger was referring to a tavern owner gunned down in a Dorchester phone booth in 1975.

Bulger’s jail conversation with his niece and nephew occurred through a glass partition at the Plymouth County Correctional Facility, the Boston Globe wrote.

Opinion: Obama’s Choice for FBI Director – James Comey – Is a Wrong One

James Comey

By Richard Cohen
Washington Post

It was probably the most famous hospital visit since Bob Woodward snuck into the room of dying CIA Director William Casey in 1987. This time it was James Comey, a deputy attorney general, who in 2004 rushed to the bedside of Attorney General John Ashcroft and implored him not to reauthorize the government’s warrantless spying program.

Ashcroft stayed his pen — and Comey, having virtually committed an act of civil disobedience, became something of a Washington legend. He is now President Obama’s choice to head up the FBI. I applaud him with one hand.

Why the hesitation? Why in this moment of warrantless everything, a government scooping up our emails and, it seems, nighttime dreams, would I not cheer the nomination of someone who insisted on constitutional and legal limits on such a program?

Because this is also the era of leak investigations in which the phone calls of reporters have been creepily noted, and one of them, Fox News’ James Rosen, not only had his phone records filched but was cited as co-conspirator in an investigation of a State Department leak. The criminalization of investigative reporting, even when it is done by Fox News, is a bad, bad thing.
