CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan Calls Out Portland Leaders After Violence Breaks Out

Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan slammed political leaders in Portland over their handling of violence in the city Saturday after Border Patrol agents were sent in to assist.

“What we saw in Portland last night was criminal and we stood strong with our federal partners to resist that,” Morgan told “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday.

“Where are the local political leaders?”

Portland police declared the protest “a riot” late on Independence Dat after fires were set and violence broke out.

“These are not protesters, these are criminals who got together and organized and planned and actually brought weapons, they brought shields, they brought frozen water bottles, rocks, lasers, weapons with the intent to destroy a federal building and harm law enforcement officers,” Morgan said.

The protest comes after the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police.

Morgan called out one of the “criminals” for “trying to assault one of the CBP employees while he was being arrested.”

Book Examines FBI’s Pursuit of ‘Whitey’ Bulger And His Arrest, Trial And Death

“Hunting Whitey: The Inside Story of the Capture and Killing of America’s Most Wanted Crime Boss”

A new book chronicles the FBI’s 16-year pursuit of James “Whitey” Bulger and his arrest, two-month trial and death in prison in 2018.

Journalists Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge painstakingly examine one of the most notorious crime bosses in American history in “Hunting Whitey: The Inside Story of the Capture and Killing of America’s Most Wanted Crime Boss.”

The book explores how Bulger, #1 on the FBI’s Most Wanted List, evaded capture for nearly two decades and was ultimately captured through the relentless efforts of federal agents.

The leader of Boston’s Winter Hill Gang was indicted on 19 counts of murder, racketeering, narcotics distribution and extortion.

The book offers new details about his death in prison.

“Everybody who lives in New England knows somebody who knows somebody who had an experience with Whitey,” Wedge told Cape Code Times. “We wrote this book to tie up loose ends.”

Sherman said Bulgar was constantly on the run before law enforcement caught up with him 16 years after he fled.

“He was free, but never free,” Sherman said. “He was always looking over his shoulder for the FBI or someone he’d crossed to come at him with a shotgun.”
