Disgraced FBI agent John Morris made a tearful courtroom apology Monday to the family of one of the alleged murder victims in the trial of accused mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger, ABC News reports.

Morris testified that he gave former FBI agent John Connolly information that ultimately led to the murder of two people, including an innocent bystander.

“Not a day in my life has gone by that I haven’t thought about this. Not a day in my life has gone by that I haven’t prayed that God gives you blessing and comfort for the pain that you suffered,” Morris told family of the bystander, Michael Donahue.

The family responded that Morris’ gesture “didn’t mean anything.”

Moving FBI Headquarters to Suburbs May Have Net Gain for Washington D.C.

Washington D.C. has a lot to lose – and gain – if the FBI moves its longtime headquarters to the suburbs. 

If the bureau moves from Pennsylvania Avenue NW, 4,800 jobs would go with it, the Washington Post reports.

But redevelopment of the site could generate an additional $28 million, the Post reported, citing a study commissioned by the city to determine the pros and cons of a move.

”There is a substantial yearly tax revenue benefit flowing to the District from replacing the current FBI Headquarters with a private-sector redevelopment,” the report reads. “There will be a net overall loss of jobs if the FBI leaves the District. The District can realize both incrementally higher yearly tax revenue and employment gains from having Poplar Point, or another District property selected as the relocation site, particularly when the transaction is structured as a private lease.”

A 19-year-old roommate of the Chechen man killed by an FBI agent in Florida last month was ordered by an immigration judge to leave the country by July 1, raising fears that she is being swept out of the country before she can provide details to law enforcement, the Boston Globe reports.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations in Florida wants to talk with Tatiana Igorevna Gruzdeva, an aspiring foreign language teacher, about what she learned about the death of Ibragim Todashev, who was investigated for his knowledge of one of the Boston bombing suspects.

“We’re extremely interested in speaking to her and seeing what she has to say,” said Hassan Shibly, executive director of the council in Florida. “We’re very curious as to why the government’s put so many impediments, in trying to get her out of the country as soon as possible. There’s a very good likelihood that she has important information.”

The FBI has declined to discuss the death of Todashev.

National Border Patrol Council: ‘Political Goals Took Precedence Over Actual Reforms’

The union representing Border Patrol agents expressed “serious concerns” about the new Senate bill because of its handling of security along the U.S.-Mexico border, the Washington Times reports.

The National Border Patrol Council is most concerned with the inundation of 20,000 additional agents to protect the border – a major component of the bill.

NBPC had stayed quiet about the bill, hoping to work behind the scenes.

“We chose to work behind the scenes, and it doesn’t seem that the problems were corrected,” Shawn Moran, an at-large vice president for the NBPC, told The Washington Times on Thursday, after the Senate vote. “It seems that political goals took precedence over actual reforms. Unless we’re going to form a human chain from Brownsville to Imperial Beach, I’m not sure this is going to be the cure that everybody thinks it will be at the border.”

His plan was to fly to Cuba and then connect to a flight to Ecuador.
