According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, virtually every aspect of the police force needs to be reformed.

NCAA Message Falls Shorts in Penn State Case

Allan Lengel

By Allan Lengel

The NCAA wanted to send a message that protecting children is more important than Penn State football. But if the NCAA really meant it, it would have suspended play for at least a year.

A $60 million fine essentially amounts to one year of revenue generated from the program.

And no bowl games for four years?

Well, many of the bowl games are irrelevant. To boot, Jerry Sandusky shouldn’t have been the only person to get indicted for what happened.

Cover ups matter.

I’m a Big Ten alum. I attended Michigan State University.

Had it happened at the Michigan State, I would have expected no less than a year suspension of the program.

I couldn’t even imagine going to a game involving Penn State.

What the officials at that university did, including coach Joe Paterno, is nothing short of criminal.

So next time the NCAA says it wants to send a message that children are more important than football, maybe it should mean it.

War on Drugs Goes to Africa

Steve Neavling

The U.S. is expanding its war on drugs to Africa, the New York Times reports.

Targeting areas used to smuggle Latin American cocaine into Europe, the U.S. is training an elite unit of counter-narcotics police in Ghana and plans to do so with Nigeria and Kenya.

The aggressive position in Africa is a sign that the U.S. is increasing some operations while the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan wind down, according to the New York Times.

“We see Africa as the new frontier in terms of counterterrorism and counternarcotics issues,” Jeffrey P. Breeden, the chief of the D.E.A.’s Europe, Asia and Africa section, told the New York Times. “It’s a place that we need to get ahead of — we’re already behind the curve in some ways, and we need to catch up.”

Steve Neavling

An ATF agent who was killed trying to prevent a pharmacy robbery in his hometown in New York had a portion of a street named after him over the weekend, Newsday reports.

Senior Special Agent John F. Capano Avenue is the new name of Waverly Avenue at Seamans Neck Road where Capano grew up in his childhood home.

Capano, 51, was trying to prevent a robbery at a pharmacy when he and the suspect began grappling over the phone. A retired Nassau police lieutenant fatally shot Capano, thinking he was the robber.

Last week the Nassau County district attorney’s office said it would not file criminal charges against the retired lieutenant because he was trying to defend himself when Capano fired.
