U.S. opens probe of Florida police money-laundering sting

By Michael Sallah
Miami Herald

MIAMI — After years of rampant abuses by undercover Bal Harbour police, the U.S. Justice Department is investigating the millions taken in by the officers who allegedly turned a money-laundering sting into a major cash enterprise, spending lavishly on travel and luxury hotels without making a single arrest.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago and the Internal Revenue Service last week carted away hundreds of confidential files of the Tri-County Task Force, including records that show the officers regularly withdrew large amounts of cash from the bank with no receipts to show where it went, according to people familiar with the investigation.

The Chicago office requested all the records of the laundering deals struck by the Bal Harbour cops with criminal groups across the country — 84 deals in Chicago alone — in what appears to be a sweeping examination of the millions laundered by the police through banks and storefront businesses in Miami, records show.


Reverse prostitution sting nets arrests

By DAVE GOSSETT - For The Weirton Daily Times

STEUBENVILLE - A reverse prostitution sting this week saw nine men, including four city residents, arrested on prostitution-related charges. 

Police Chief Bill McCafferty announced Tuesday night the sting operation took place during a two-day period in the North Street area of the city.

"We used a local law enforcement female employee for the sting, and I hope these arrests discourage men from outside of the city from coming here to look for a prostitute as well as the city residents from soliciting women for sex," McCafferty said.

The sting operation took place Thursday and Tuesday. According to a press release issued by the Jefferson County Drug Task Force, loitering to engage in solicitation charges were filed against:

* Timothy McFarland, 35, 3265 Sunset Blvd., Tuesday.
* Ralph R. Vancamp, 49, Wellsburg, Tuesday.
* John Stanko, 60, Canonsburg, Pa., Thursday.

Soliciting for prostitution charges were filed against:
* Pride D. Bank…

Fuck School
By Christopher R Rice

My mom always said that I was the best and whenever I wasn't my dad would beat me within an inch of my crotch. 

We kept all sorts of trophies as proof and I've got the scars to prove the rest.

Parents are a burden the moment after conception, if I could I'd trade 'em in for a six-pack. The pricks never did me any favors, they only yelled at me and beat me. Who needs it?

I'd like to take you to Kmart, dress you in that crap and stand you in front of your friends. Lets see if you don't come home with a black eye.

You made this crappy world, never did a damn thing to change it. So I'm into self mutilation and suicide, why do you look so surprised? Did you think your drunken beatings would turn me into a model citizen? Maybe you didn't beat me enough?

They reject cause and effect. They claim your parents had nothing to do with your upbringing or how you turned out. So I want to know, why am I the way I am?

Fuck the government, f…

14 arrested in sports-betting ring, FBI says

LOS ANGELES – An investigation into an illegal sports-betting ring netted 14 arrests Wednesday, including a Menifee man and a Santa Clarita man who authorities say was the boss of the organization, officials said.

Cyrus Irani, 37, the alleged boss, was taken into custody at his home, the FBI reported. Irani was among 17 people who had been indicted by a grand jury in Queens County, New York.

Three of suspects remain at large.

The grand jury indicted the 17 people in New York, Nevada, Arizona and California on charges of “unlawfully operating a highly sophisticated sports gambling enterprise that stretched westward from Queens County and utilized offshore-based gambling websites,” an FBI statement said.

“The enterprise, which is alleged to have annually booked more than $32 million in bets, is also accused of laundering its criminal proceeds by depositing and withdrawing large sums of cash from various banks throughout the United States,” the FBI reported.

Among the others arrested today i…

Impeach IRS chief

Impeach IRS chief

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican chairman of a powerful House committee moved Tuesday to impeach the head of the Internal Revenue Service, saying he violated the public trust and obstructed congressional investigations into the treatment of conservative groups.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen failed to comply with a congressional subpoena, allowed documents to be destroyed and misled the public. Chaffetz chairs the House Oversight Committee, which has been investigating the IRS for more than two years.

Chaffetz called impeachment an appropriate tool to restore public confidence in the IRS and "demonstrate to the American people that the IRS is under repair."

The impeachment bid comes less than a week after the Justice Department said no IRS official will face criminal charges in the political controversy over the processing of applications by groups seeking tax-exempt status.

The decision closed a two-year investiga…

Cops steal from people they stop

Cops steal from people they stop

EDITORS NOTE: Two Detroit cops are accused of stealing from people they stopped. This is not an isolated incident read below and see how cops are stealing from citizens all across the country, after routine traffic stops.

DETROIT (AP) — Two members of an elite Detroit police unit are accused of stealing money from people they stopped on the street and with fabricating information about an arrest.

Officers Charles Lynem, 28, and Chancellor Searcy, 31, were arraigned Tuesday on embezzlement, larceny, misconduct and falsely reporting a felony charges. Searcy also is charged with failing to uphold the law.

"Whenever an officer is accused of criminal misconduct, certainly it's a dark day for the department," Police Chief James Craig told reporters. "These allegations should not be a reflection of every Detroit police officer."

Lynem and Searcy are seven-year veterans of the department and were partners in Detroit's Ta…

Afghan sex abuse coverup claims

From the AP 10/28/15: US defense officials said they were opening an investigation into allegations of child sex abuse by Afghan security forces and reports that US personnel deliberately overlooked it.

The probe by the Pentagon's inspector general comes on Tuesday, after The New York Times last month reported that US troops in Afghanistan had been instructed by their superiors to overlook cases of Afghan police or commanders sexually abusing teenage boys, even if it took place on military bases.
The practice is known as "bacha bazi," which means "boy play" in local languages.
"Is there -- or was there -- any guidance, informal or otherwise, to discourage reporting by DoD (Department of Defense) affiliated personnel?" a memo from the inspector general's office asks.
"What training on identifying and responding to alleged child sexual abuse... has been conducted or planned?"
The memo, sent to leaders across the US military, also asks for infor…
