What’s $500 million for a corporate behemoth like Google?

Maybe a drop in the bucket, but for the government it’s a nice piece of change.

Rhode Island U.S. Attorney Peter Neronha plans to discuss at a press conference Monday afternoon how the money paid out to the Justice Department will be distributed, the Associated Press reported.

Google gave up the cash as part of a settlement after the Justice Department found it was distributing Google ads for Canadian pharmacies, which were selling drugs illegally.

 

FBI Agent Barry Bush Remembered 5 Years Later; Was Killed by Friendly Fire

The Express-Time

The Barry Lee Bush that Joseph Douress remembers isn’t the FBI agent who investigated gangs in Newark and the U.S. Embassy bombing in Kenya.

Douress remembers a friend who would sit on a floor and stuff envelopes with invitations for a charity golf tournament, a neighbor who would plop himself on Douress’ couch to watch sports and have a few beers, a golfer perpetually frustrated by an incurable slice.

“Understand,” said Douress, who lives across the street from Bush’s widow, Karen, in Forks Township, “you’d never know Barry was in some cases the lead investigator in some of the biggest cases in this country’s history. … He was very well respected as an FBI agent. But around the neighborhood, he was Barry Bush.”

Thursday will mark five years since the 52-year-old Bush was fatally shot by friendly fire while pursuing bank robbers in Readington Township. Authorities say a fellow agent mistakenly shot Bush in confusion as agents descended on the robbers.

A Mob Tape, an FBI Gaffe and Some Murders

By Allan Lengel
ticklethewire.com

On the big screen and on TV, sometimes we forget the twisted plots aren’t simply made up, but actually come from real situations in the wiseguy world.

Here’s a real story worthy of the big screen involving a mob hit and a secret recording in which an FBI audio expert accidentally taped over it for about 18 seconds.

Mob expert Jerry Capeci of Gang Land News reports that the feds plan to use that the tape recording to help try and convict  mob associate Christian Tarantino in the killing in 2003 of his business partner Vincent Gargiulo in Manhattan.

It was Garagiulo who made the secret recording in 2000 in which Tarantino admits killing two people in 1994, Gang Land News reports.  Gargiulo allegedly had tried to blackmail Tarantino and wanted him to pay $500,000 for the cassette tape, Gang Land reported. Instead, he ended up dead.

In 2008, the feds used the tape to help charge Tarantino with the two murders in 1994 and the one involving Gargiulo in 2003. Prosecutors used it last year at the first trial, but while they were able to convict Tarantino of the 1994 murders at that trial, the jury was unable to reach a unanimous verdict in the killing of Gargiulo, Gang Land reported.

Capeci reports that the judge in the upcoming retrial in the murder of Garigiulo is allowing the tape to be used again.

Interestingly, the FBI audio expert mistakenly recorded his own voice over the tape for 18 second.   Despite arguments from the defense, the judge has ruled that the tape can be introduced as evidence.

Gang Land News reports that the tape mysteriously surfaced after someone mailed it in 2004 to the New York cops, who turned it over to the FBI.

More than a year after being nominated by the White House, the Senate on Thursday confirmed the appointment of Thomas Harrigan as the number two person at DEA.

“I cannot think of a better, more qualified, or more honorable person to have at my side than Special Agent Tom Harrigan as we lead the Drug Enforcement Administration through the many challenges we will face and the many successes we will have in the coming years,” said DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart in a statement.

“Tom demonstrated strong leadership and dedication in the field, and his strategic vision as Chief of Operations has been second to none. Special Agent Harrigan’s confirmation enhances our nation’s safety and security by placing a proven, well respected career agent in this critical position at DEA.”

Harrigan, a well respected figure in the DEA, has been the Chief of Operations. He started his career with the agency in 1987 and was assigned to the Bangkok in 1991.

After that, according to the White House, “he has served as Group Supervisor in the Newark Field Division, Staff Coordinator in the Office of Congressional and Public Affairs, Chief of the Dangerous Drugs and Chemicals Section, and Deputy Chief in the Office of Domestic Operations. He also served as Senior Advisor to the Chief of Domestic Operations and as the Assistant Special Agent in Charge in the Washington Field Office.

In 2004, Mr. Harrigan was appointed to the Senior Executive Service to serve as the Chief of Enforcement Operations.

“I am so pleased to hear of DEA Special Agent Harrigan’s confirmation as Deputy Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration,”  John “Jack” C. Lawn, DEA Administrator from 1985 to 1990 said in a statement. “Tom’s more than 25 years of experience both in domestic and international operations and his exceptional management skills make him uniquely qualified for this position. As Deputy Administrator, he solidifies this leadership role whose responsibilities will be so important to DEA’s future. He now speaks from a position of strength as DEA’s Deputy Administrator.”
