Danny Schecter a friend....
Trained me in radio production at WBCNfm Boston
in 1972 where we produced a weekly 1 hour long
criminal justice news magazine radio show called
Lock Up ..
It ran for 6 years


Published Thursday, March 26, 2015
Danny Schechter Was an Observant Jew, Even if he Rarely Set Foot in Shul
Journalist and Radio Legend Dies at 72

News Dissector: Schechter, who died at the age of 72, was a radio legend at Boston’s WBCN-FM.

Danny Schechter, the self-described progenitor of “participatory journalism” who died March 19, first burst onto my radar screen back in the late 1970s, when I was working at WBAI-FM, the left-leaning community-sponsored radio station. One day, while laboring there, I heard a news story come in from Boston with an inordinate amount of reggae music mixed into the piece, followed by the reporter’s catchy sign-off: “This is Danny Schechter, the news dissector.”

This caught my attention, and our paths crossed several times over the subsequent decades.

Schechter, who was 72 when he succumbed to pancreatic cancer, was a radio legend in the ’70s at Boston’s WBCN-FM, a commercial station that was downright revolutionary at the time. His daily newscast “was a high-energy amalgam of audio clips of newsmakers, great music and Danny’s own acidic and amusing commentary,” recalled Bill Adler, who was a disc jockey at the Boston station before going on to a career as a music journalist and hip-hop publicist. “As far as I know, no one else came close to the brilliance and bravery of his approach until Jon Stewart found his groove in the early years of the 21st century.”

Schechter’s bravery made him a legend. While in grad school in the London School of Economics in the late 1960s, he traveled to South Africa and delivered communiqués to underground members of the African National Congress. Schechter also set off leaflet bombs: plastic buckets with hundreds of banned ANC propaganda leaflets inside them that would be sent flying out into and all over the street by a small amount of explosives inside them. These acts could easily have landed Schechter in jail; the Afrikaners running the regime did not play around.

Schechter had many detractors, as well as admirers. More than a few employees found this “one-man hurricane” difficult to work for. But Schechter was also blessed with a heavy dose of Bronx-bred chutzpah. Twice during the 1970s he confronted Henry Kissinger, once as a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University. At a party celebrating the prestigious journalism fellowship’s 40th anniversary, Schechter rose and asked, “How can you justify yourself to your own children after your policies caused 6 million deaths in Indochina?” Kissinger stormed out of the party.

When Schechter went down to Mississippi in 1964 to fight for the civil rights of black people, his mother and father, Ruth Lisa Schechter and Jerry Schechter, a poet and a garment worker, respectively, were worried “out of their minds,” according to his younger brother. Bill Schechter, a retired high school history teacher, remembers the Bronx’s Amalgamated Houses, where he and his brother grew up, as a little shtetl, a utopian community with many anarchists, communists and socialists. Their grandfather, of course, was a Forverts subscriber.

Though neither became a bar mitzvah, the Schechter boys were sent to I.L Peretz Shule #3 in the Bronx and attended a radical Jewish summer camp in upstate New York. “I grew up thinking Eugene Debs was Jewish,” Bill Schechter told me with a chuckle, referring to the early socialist (and non-Jewish) firebrand.

At a party thrown a few weeks before he died, Schechter’s Chelsea apartment was crammed with friends, including record executive Danny Goldberg, documentary filmmaker Barbara Kopple and Washington Spectator publisher Hamilton Fish, who produced three films about the Holocaust.

“Danny pretty much brought the Vietnam War to a close,” Fish told the throng. “He was also responsible for ending apartheid.”

Fish was exaggerating. But few dispute the impact of Schechter’s decades of covering the anti-apartheid struggle, which included “South Africa Now,” the weekly TV show Schechter produced for public television in the 1980s. When the Public Broadcasting Service declined to distribute the show, Schechter, undaunted, convinced scores of individual public television stations in America and abroad to carry it. Fearless when it came to juggling his roles as a journalist and activist, Schechter also played a pivotal role in organizing the South African anti-apartheid Sun City music project while working as a producer for ABC’s “20/20.”

Not long before he died, Schechter produced three-CDs of songs that had meant something to him. I got corralled into doing some audio editing for the project. The collection included Chava Alberstein doing the ghetto fighters’ Yiddish anthem, called “Zog Nit Keyn Mol,” and “Sixteen Tons,” Mickey Katz’s parody of the Tennessee Ernie Ford hit.

When I went to Schechter’s apartment to pick up some CDs for the mix, I looked at the pictures on the walls, shots of the news dissector posing with Nelson Mandela, Jesse Jackson, the Dalai Lama and Elie Wiesel. Among them was a tattered black-and-white photograph of his father’s family gathered around a Seder table on Manhattan’s Lower East Side in the 1930s.

Schechter lived two doors away from a synagogue in Chelsea where I daven from time to time. I don’t think he set foot in a synagogue his entire

FBI recruits 14 Flagler College students
March 28, 2015        


Historic City News was informed that Flagler College senior Paul Khan is one step closer to achieving his dream of being a special agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Khan, along with 13 other students, was offered and accepted a position with the governmental organization, often depicted as the titan of high-profile detective work.

“When I heard they were coming to Flagler, I immediately signed up and took advantage of the opportunity,” Kahn told local reporters. “It has always been my goal to work for them, so I was really excited to hear that I probably accomplished the biggest thing in my life.”

Representatives from the Federal Bureau of Investigation held an information session on campus, and returned the following day to interview 29 students. Seventeen of those students were offered jobs. Fourteen accepted entry-level positions, including general support and technical roles.

“At 21-years-old, I could already be working my dream job,” Kahn said.

For Undercover Agents, On-The-Job Adrenaline Can Be Addictive
March 29, 2015

Retired agent Michael Vigil on a search and destroy operation in the Colombian jungle. "As an undercover, you're basically kind of an independent operator ... and it's very addictive." says Laura Brodie, a criminal and forensic psychologist. (Courtesy Michael Vigil) Retired agent Michael Vigil on a search and destroy operation in the Colombian jungle. "As an undercover, you're basically kind of an independent operator ... and it's very addictive." says Laura Brodie, a criminal and forensic psychologist. (

Danger, subterfuge, adrenaline — as more agencies use undercover operatives, we take a look at what it's like to take on a false identity professionally.

A recent report out says the agency has made major improvements since Sept. 11, but still needs to boost its ability to collect intelligence.

Those operations can take many forms, but some of the most critical are the undercover missions that require agents to take on new identities and with them, a whole lot of risk. And it's not just the FBI. The New York Times reported last fall that at least 40 federal agencies use undercover agents in some capacity.

Former FBI agent convicted in hammer slaying

A retired FBI agent and Vietnam War veteran was found guilty of voluntary manslaughter Tuesday for the slaying of his son's girlfriend in November 2008.

After a two-week trial and a day of deliberation, a Clark County jury of seven men and five women handed down the verdict against Edward Preciado-Nuno.

Prosecutors had sought a murder conviction against the 63-year-old for the death of Kimberly Long, who was in a long-term relationship with Jeffrey Preciado that was marked by domestic violence and alcohol and prescription drug abuse.

Preciado-Nuno, who testified at the trial, said Long had attacked him with a hammer first and he was defending himself when he killed her.

Prosecutors said Preciado-Nuno beat Long to death with a hammer, striking her more than a dozen times in the head. She also had numerous defense wounds, prosecutors said.

The jury saw graphic photos of the crime scene and autopsy photos of Long's head that showed half a dozen wounds made by a hammer to the back of her head.


Former FBI agent faces second murder trial in Stafford


Arthur Gonzales (left) enters Stafford Circuit Court during his first trial in March, 2014, which ended in a hung jury.

A second multiday jury trial for a former FBI special agent accused of murdering his estranged wife is set to begin today.

Arthur B. Gonzales, 43, is charged with second-degree murder and using a firearm in the commission of a felony in connection with the April 19, 2013, slaying of 42-year-old Julie Serna Gonzales. Arthur Gonzales has admitted shooting his wife to death, but insists it was in self-defense.

The FBI had placed Gonzales on unpaid leave after his arrest. He was terminated last fall, his attorney, Mark Gardner, said Monday.

Gonzales’ first trial last March in Stafford County Circuit Court ended after eight days with a hung jury. That jury deliberated 25 hours over several days but was unable to reach a unanimous decision.

The jurors voted 10–2 to acquit Gonzales, and the two in opposition were only supporting a lesser manslaughter conviction.

Still, Commonwealth’s Attorney Eric Olsen immediately announced he would try the case again, and the second trial was initially scheduled for September. But Judge Sarah Deneke reluctantly postponed the trial after key new prosecution witnesses surfaced just about a week before the trial was to start.

Deneke said it would be unfair to exclude the witnesses and unfair not to give defense attorney Gardner adequate time to counter their testimony.

The key new witness in the trial is expected to be Dr. Marcella Fierro, the retired chief medical examiner for the state of Virginia. Fierro has examined the evidence and reached different conclusions than the forensic scientist who performed the autopsy did.

Specifically, Fierro has determined that one of the four shots that struck Julie Gonzales was fired while her back was against a hard surface, most likely the floor.

Gardner since has come up with a second scientist who has concluded that Gonzales’ back was not necessarily against a hard surface when the shot hit her.

The Gonzaleses were in the process of getting divorced when Julie Gonzales showed up at the family residence on Alderwood Drive in North Stafford and encountered her husband.

Gonzales said that his wife became angry and charged at him with a knife when he shot her in self-defense.

The prosecution contended that Gonzales was upset about a floundering relationship with a younger woman—who has since married another FBI agent—and took it out on his wife. They said he then used his law enforcement knowledge to stage the crime scene before calling for help.

Doubts Cast on FBI Warning That Anarchists May Attack Cops on Halloween

Friday, October 30, 2015 | 8 hours ago
Doubts Cast on FBI Warning That Anarchists May Attack Cops on Halloween

Are local anarchists planning to attack police officers in metro Phoenix and around the country on Halloween, as many news outlets have reported? Or has the entire scandal been fabricated?

The answer, it turns out, isn’t so clear.

The New York Post's Melkorka Licea was the first to report earlier this week that the central office of the FBI sent local law enforcement agencies around the country a warning that a national anarchist group was planning to attack police officers — including those in the Valley — on Halloween.

Citing an FBI alert, Licea wrote, “The extremist group — known as the National Liberation Militia — has proposed a ‘Halloween Revolt’ that encourages supporters to cause a disturbance to attract police and then viciously attack them.”

After her article was published, it was picked up by news outlets across the country, including Phoenix's ABC15 — “Several Valley departments told ABC15 they were either aware of the threat or had received a warning from the FBI specifically,” reporter Lauren Vargas wrote.

She spoke with Sergeant Ben Hoster of the Scottsdale PD, who confirmed that his department “got a notification a week or two ago from the FBI, letting us know that there is an anarchist group that would be out.”

When contacted by New Times, Hoster deferred to the local FBI office “since they issued the warning.”

A spokesman for the Phoenix PD, Sergeant Jonathan Howard, had a similar reaction: Call the FBI, he said.

A Halloween Trick and A Challenge To The FBI:
October 31, 2015Uncategorized        

I cannot but help hearing echoes of J. Edgar Hoover. I wonder if Director Comey his reincarnation? He is sure up to Hoover’s old tricks.

In doing research for my planned book I have studied the involvement of J. Edgar Hoover in various historical moments in our country’s history. It was back in 1919 or 1920 when he was running the Justice Department’s radical bureau that he came out with a warning to all police departments in the nation that the Reds were planning major disturbances throughout our county on the 4th of July. The cities went to great lengths preparing and the day came and went and nothing unusual occurred. It was after that sanity returned to America and the Hoover’s creation known as the “Red Scare” pretty much went into the history books. Hoover, the man behind much of the scare at age 24, would go on to become director of the FBI for 48 years.

Thought Matters

The Telephone Call that Launched the FBI
Posted: 11/05/2015 3:08 pm ES


The course of history is not always altered by great events or outsized personalities achieving the extraordinary. Often it is the bold and clear-headed actions of ordinary citizens taking decisive action at the moment of crisis that makes an outsized impact on the course of events. One such action occurred in the beastly hot summer of the worst year of the nation's Great Depression as a sense of lawlessness prevailed and desperation spread.

It happened in the early morning hours of July 23, 1933, as J. Edgar Hoover lay asleep in his home in Washington, DC. At that time, he had only tentative hold on the job he had come to know and love. He was Director of the United States Department of Justice Bureau of Investigation. At age 36, he was thought by many to be too young, too inexperienced and too politically unconnected for the job most people in government considered to be barely more than a political patronage appointment. To that point, he hadn't done much to prove them wrong.

His team's investigation of the 1932 Lindbergh baby kidnapping case had been a laughable failure. The case had dragged on with no resolution or notable progress in the 16 months since then-President Herbert Hoover had tapped him to lead the federal efforts to solve the case and find the kidnappers. His initial efforts to get involved in the investigation had been rebuffed by the New Jersey State Police and other law enforcement agencies, who flat out refused to share information, and dismissed his men as inept federal interlopers. Charles Lindbergh himself was barely co-operative.

Hoover's over-reaching in the capture and arrest of an escaped federal prisoner had resulted in the mass murder of four law enforcement officers, including one from his bureau, and the prisoner himself. The machine gun assault had taken place in June of 1933, a month earlier, in the parking lot of Kansas City's busy Union Station in full view of the train station's bustling crowds. Its perpetrators were still at large.

Not only was his competence being called into question by the national press, but his masculinity was as well as they mocked his gait and dandified attire. The new president's wife was said to loath him, and he'd just barely escaped a sacking by Franklin Delano Roosevelt's first choice for Attorney General, Thomas Walsh, who died unexpectedly before assuming the office.

But Hoover was about to receive a phone call that would turn his fortunes around. The call would deliver to Hoover the most effective and co-operative witness in the history of the agency's war against crime. It would set into motion the biggest manhunt in the nation's history and lead to a spectacular trial that would transfix the country and transform the bureau.

The events would unleash a barrage of publicity that would ultimately put the beleaguered director on course to become not only the most powerful lawman in the nation's history, but the most admired as well. Within ninety days, Hoover would go from a man whose head had been on the political chopping block, to the star performer of the new administration's ambitious plans.

Hoover could not have realized all of this as his bedside telephone rang on that Sunday at 2 a.m. But his life was about to change, and history was about to be made.

Just weeks earlier Hoover had established the country's first national crime hotline—a special number that anyone could call to be put through immediately to the Justice Department headquarters in Washington, DC. It was intended to be used for reporting kidnappings—a heinous crime that was occurring with alarming regularity throughout the country. Hoover hoped his hotline would tip his agents off quickly so they could get on the scene without delay and get control of the investigation before the local authorities could lock things up and freeze them out. So eager was he to get news quickly, that he instructed the telephone operators at the bureau to put calls through to a special line he had installed in his home.

When it rang, rousing Hoover, it brought news of the kidnapping of a wealthy Oklahoma oilman, who'd been snatched off his sun porch just hours earlier. The call was from the victim's wife, who'd read a story about the special hotline just days earlier in Time magazine. Hoover dispatched his men almost immediately.

Within days of his release after the largest ransom in the nation's history had been paid, the victim, Charles Urschel (no relation to the author), led the bureau's agents back to the farm in Texas where he had been held captive, resulting in the arrest four members of the crew that held him captive and legendary bank robber Harvey Bailey, who was hiding out on the farm.

From there they would chase the actual kidnappers, George "Machine Gun" Kelly, his wife, Kathryn, and partner Albert Bates over 20,000 miles and 16 states before their eventual capture. After a spectacular and melodramatic trial that was covered in great detail by members of the press from around the world, the Kellys, Bates, Bailey and Robert and Ora Shannon, who owned the farm where the victim was held, all would be convicted and sentenced to life in prison. George Kelly, Bates and Bailey would eventually end up serving their time on Alcatraz, the federal penitentiary that was opened a year later as a place to house "criminals of the vicious and irredeemable type," in the words of then-Attorney General, Homer Cummings.

Citing the Urschel kidnapping case, Cummings then went before Congress and argued for an expansion of power for the Justice Department's Bureau of Investigation. At the time, the Bureau was basically limited to the pursuit of kidnappers, interstate auto thefts and those transporting women across state lines for the purpose of prostitution. He wanted federal laws against racketeering, the transportation of stolen property across state lines, flight across state lines to avoid prosecution, robbing banks operating under the Federal Reserve System, assault on a Federal officer, regulations on the sale and manufacture of machine guns, and other laws that would expand the enforcement powers of the Bureau. He also wanted the death penalty for kidnappers. With the passage of 1934's Crime Bill, he would get virtually everything he wanted.

A year later Hoover and Cummings would go to the president and suggest a new name for their bureau—a name that would distinguish it from other federal agencies that also had investigative bureaus. They wanted to call the Justice Department's bureau, the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Roosevelt liked the idea, and on March 22, 1935, the name formally took effect.

J. Edgar Hoover, its Director, who less than 2 years earlier was in danger of losing his title, would hold on to it for another 35 years until he died in his sleep on May 2, 1972. Charles Urschel and his wife Berenice would fade into the background, largely forgotten. But had they not taken the actions they did—standing up to the threats of their captors and co-operating with the federal authorities—Hoover would have been denied the landmark trial on which he launched his career, and George "Machine Gun" Kelly would have remained in relative anonymity as a bit player in the saga of America's gangland.

Senior Russian Advisor and Media Head Found Dead in Washington DC’s Dupont Hotel

A prominent senior advisor to the Russian government and media consortium head millionaire was found dead inside a top Washington DC hotel on Thursday.
According to an initial ABC News report, Mikhail Lesin, 57 yrs old, was staying at Dupont Circle Hotel when his body was discovered on Thursday.

Sputnik News states, “Mikhail Lesin died from a heart stroke,” a family member told RIA Novosti.

On closer inspection of US media coverage, however, it appears that Washington’s propaganda machine has seized another opportunity to try and spin this story against Moscow.

Meanwhile, a Yahoo! News release says that Washington DC Metropolitan Police Department are now investigating the circumstances surrounding his death. In shameless fashion, Yahoo! Newsgoes on to try and paint the victim as an international criminal…

Unfortunately, however, following on with the western media’s now common practice of intentionally demonizing Russia, and personalizing every Russian-related news story by wrapping the narrative around “Putin” (Russian President Vladimir Putin), the original

FBI Citizens Academy part 1


The FBI is the domestic intelligence and security agency of the United States. It also serves as a national police force.

In addition to these duties, the agency is also reaching out to communities through its Citizens Academy program.

WXVT's Woodrow Wilkins was part of the 2015 class, conducted by the Jackson field office.

Students learn more about the agency and become links between the fbi and their communities.

Assistant Special Agent in Charge David Eisenreich explained.

"The goal's quite simple," he said. "We really rely on our partnership with the community. And that is the entire basis of what the Citizens Academy hopes to achieve.

"And during the course of that - the segments, they'll learn what the FBI does and how we do it."

Among the 2015 academy students were educators, attorneys, business owners, doctors, bankers and journalists. Wilkins and former WXVT anchor and reporter Danielle Avitable were among news media selected for the class.

" You know it's really cool," Avitable said. "I came in here with an open mind, not knowing what I was going to learn. And we got a clear picture of how they process evidence, and how they handle different cases."

Judy Meredith, a former journalist, is a professor at Jackson State University and the wife of James Meredith, the first black person admitted to the University of Mississippi.

" Just the secrecy that I thought enveloped this organization," Meredith said. "And so I just wanted to find out more about it."

Range Day was one of the last things the class did before graduation, going to the FBI Training Center for some hands-on experience. In the weeks leading up to range day, the participants met each Tuesday at the FBI Jackson field office for classroom instruction. Presentations included two short films, depicting some of the cases the FBI investigated or assisted.

One involved industrial spies from China trying to influence an American worker to sell his company's secrets. Another depicted an active shooter scenario at a school.

According to the FBI Active Shooter Event Quick Reference Guide, an active shooter is an individual actively engaged in killing or attempting to kill people in a confined and populated area.Victims are selected at random.

During the session, the class was told that people have three options during an active shooter event:

- Run

Have an escape route and plan in mind.

Leave your belongings behind.

Evacuate regardless of whether others agree to follow.

Help others escape, if possible.

Do not attempt to move the wounded.

Prevent others frmo entering an area where the active shooter may be.

Keep your hands visible.

Call 911 when you are safe.

- Hide

Hide in an area out of the shooter's view.

Lock door or block entry to your hiding place.

Silence your cell phone (including vibrate mode) and remain silent.

- Fight

Fight as a last resort and only when your life is imminent danger.

Attempt to incapacitate the shooter.

Act with as much physical aggression as possible.

Improvise weapons or throw items at the active shooter.

Commit to your actions. Your life depends on it.

The guide says first officers who arrive on scene will not stop to help the injured. Expect rescue teams to follow the first officers. These teams will treat and remove the injured.

Once you reach a safe location, you will likely be held in that area by law enforcement until the situation is clear, and all witnesses have been identified and questioned. Do not leave the area until law enforcement authorities have instructed you to do so.

During the film, "The Coming Storm," the presenting agent told academy students that it shows why it's not a good idea for teachers to be armed. If an active shooter event does occur, law enforcement may mistake the teacher for the shooter.

In addition to learning more about the FBI, participants found a few surprises.

Each presenting agent had a sense of humor. Special agents come from a variety of professional backgrounds. And most of those the students met had served in other locations.

FBI Citizens Academy part 3


The FBI serves as a security agency and national police force. The agency is also reaching out to communities through its Citizens Academy.

WXVT's Woodrow Wilkins was among the 2015 academy students at the FBI field office in Jackson. This is his third and final report.

Have you ever thought about a job in the FBI? Depending on your background, you may qualify.

"At the fbi, we're looking for a diversified workforce," said David Eisenreich, assistant special agent in charge of the Jackson office. "So we want all skill sets. And so there are a number of folks, and they're valued members of the organization, who have a law enf

FBI battling 'rash of sexting' among its employees


Updated 5:35 AM ET, Fri February 22, 2013
Misconduct revealed within FBI

Misconduct revealed within FBI 04:31
Story highlights

CNN obtained FBI internal reports on employee misconduct
According to the reports, employees sent naked photos and inappropriate text messages
An FBI official says it sends the reports to its employees to deter further misconduct
She described a "rash of sexting" cases among the bureau's employees

It sounds like the plot of a bad movie: bugging your boss' office. Sending naked photos around to co-workers. Sexting in the office. Paying for sex in a massage parlor.

But it all happened in the federal agency whose motto is "fidelity, bravery, integrity" -- the FBI.

These lurid details are outlined in confidential internal disciplinary reports obtained by CNN that were issued to FBI employees as a way to deter misconduct.

Read the FBI's internal reports (PDF)

The FBI hopes these quarterly reports will stem what its assistant director called a "rash of sexting cases" involving employees who are using their government-issued devices to send lurid texts and nude photos.

"We're hoping (that) getting the message out in the quarterlies is going to teach people, as well as their supervisors ... you can't do this stuff," FBI assistant director Candice Will told CNN this week. "When you are given an FBI BlackBerry, it's for official use. It's not to text the woman in another office who you found attractive or to send a picture of yourself in a state of undress. That is not why we provide you an FBI BlackBerry."

While the vast majority of the FBI's 36,000 employees act professionally, the disciplinary reports issued by the agency's Office of Professional Responsibility show serious misconduct has continued for years.

From 2010 to 2012, the FBI disciplined 1,045 employees for a variety of violations, according to the agency. Eighty-five were fired.

The internal reports over the last year don't specify job titles, names or the location of the employees. Yet, they provide exact details of their misdeeds:

-- One employee engaged in a "romantic relationship with former boyfriend (now husband) knowing he was a drug/user dealer. Employee also lied under oath when questioned during

Sheriff’s lack of attendance at meetings questioned but he’s not worst

Posted: 8:52 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015

By Eliot Kleinberg and Mike Stucka - Palm Beach Post Staff Writer


When the Palm Beach County Criminal Justice Commission meets, you can
count on six people, nearly a fifth of the panel, being prominently

Four are federal law enforcement agents. One is Palm Beach County
Sheriff Ric Bradshaw. And one is the county Clerk and Comptroller,
Sharon Bock.

Among them, the six have attended 37 of 284 meetings since 2007, for a
combined attendance average of 13 percent, a Palm Beach Post analysis
of attendance records shows.

By comparison, none of the remaining 26 members on the panel has an
attendance record below 55 percent.

Furthermore, the difference between “public sector” and “private
sector” members in attendance is striking. The 21 public sector
members, from law enforcement, courts and local and federal
government, have an average attendance of 53 percent. The 11 private
sector members, selected by the Economic Council of Palm Beach County,
average 85 percent.
+Sheriff’s lack of attendance at meetings questioned but he’s not
worst photo
Damon Higgins
Palm Beach County Clerk & Comptroller Sharon Bock

The Criminal Justice Commission was created by the County Commission
in 1988, at the behest of the Economic Council, to build partnerships
among agencies to improve the county’s criminal justice system. Its
“public sector” membership is automatically comprised of various law
enforcement, judicial and government posts.

Bradshaw has attended 13 of the 72 meetings held during his terms in
office, and Bock has gone to one of 70 meetings during her terms.

The four federal law enforcement officers are John McKenna, assistant
special agent in charge at the West Palm Beach district office of the
U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (attended 0 of 40 meetings held
during the time he has been appointed to the board); Robert Shirley of
the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (0 of
26); FBI agent Michael D’Alonzo (1 of 6); and Rolando Garcia of the
U.S. Attorney’s Office (22 of 68).
+Sheriff’s lack of attendance at meetings questioned but he’s not
worst photo
William Kramer, chairman, Palm Beach County Criminal Justice

McKenna’s schedule has not allowed him to attend any of the justice
panel meetings but he does attend Law Enforcement Planning Council
meetings, DEA spokeswoman Anne-Judith Lambert said last month. ATF
spokesman Carlos Gonzalez said Shirley “is just an honorary member” of
the justice commission and also is a regular member of the Planning
Council. In response to questions abut D’Alonzo’s record, FBI
spokesman Michael Leverock said his office is “not in a position to
discuss the schedule of our agents.” And Garcia’s office did not
respond to requests for comment.

Attendance became an issue when, at a Nov. 13 meeting of some justice
panel members, chair William Kramer and others asked about Bradshaw’s

“I think it’s really important that the chief law enforcement officer
of the county attend.” said Kramer, a business consultant and a former
general manager of Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida in Belle

Priscilla Taylor, who is the county commissioner on the criminal
justice commission, said later she’s not convinced the absence of Bock
and Bradshaw undermines the commission’s legitimacy. But, she said,
“it sure would be nice if they were there.”

Bradshaw told The Post on Nov. 13 that he deliberately skips the
meetings becauseof concerns about Florida’s Government in the Sunshine
law and opening his constitutionally independent office to the
scrutiny of the county Inspector General and Commission on Ethics. The
Sunshine law argument is one he has made since at least 2010.

Both he and Bock have said that because their commission membership
places them on the same public board as law enforcement colleagues,
such as the State Attorney and Public Defender, they would in effect
be violating the public meetings laws any time they discuss a pending
criminal or civil case with each other outside of a publicly noticed
board meeting.

But after The Post asked Bradshaw on Nov. 25 about a 2013 law that
exempts the sheriff, clerk and others from public meeting requirements
when discussing active criminal intelligence information or active
investigations at criminal justice commission meetings, he said, “It
wasn’t about the Sunshine Law because I knew that got rectified.”

Rather, Bradshaw repeated that he doesn’t want to be answerable to the
county’s Inspector General and Ethics Commission.

“Those have never been resolved,” he said.

“The county wants to keep putting restrictions on the sheriff’s
office,” Bradshaw said. He said he was “not going to allow the county
commission to control the constitutional office of the sheriff.”

Bock also discounted the Sunshine Law issue last month. She said it’s
a question of time.

“I have over 1,000 statutory duties as constitutional clerk and
comptroller and I am a board member on countless committees both local
and statewide,” Bock said.

State Rep. David Kerner, D-Lake Worth, himself a member of the Palm
Beach County Criminal Justice Commission, is the legislator who pushed
through the Sunshine Law exemption for criminal justice commission
members. He said he wouldn’t second-guess Bradshaw’s and Bock’s
decisions to err on the side of caution in attending meetings.

“It’s a decision they have to make individually,” Kerner said. “It’s
not a blanket exemption.”

9/11 Whistleblower Coleen Rowley
Saturday, December 05, 2015
TIME magazine's "Persons of the Year" in 2002

Washington DC - infoZine - Coleen Rowley, a former FBI special agent
and division counsel whose May 2002 memo to the FBI Director exposed
some of the FBI’s pre-9/11 failures -- was named one of TIME
magazine’s “Persons of the Year” in 2002. Rowley wrote to the FBI
Director again in February 2003 with some hard questions about the
reliability of the evidence being adduced to “justify” the impending
invasion of Iraq. She now warns of terror attacks being used as
pretexts for official agendas. She also warns that bulk collection of
personal data by government, like military interventions, is not only
counter to liberty, but counterproductive to the alleged goal of
stopping attacks.

She just wrote the piece "Visa Waiver Program Has Same Weak Links;
Mass Surveillance and Terrorist Watchlisting Don't Work," which
states: "Politicians are scoring points with a frightened U.S.
population by hyping the supposed danger of letting in up to 10,000
Syrian refugees, but a much greater or actual risk exists in the
current gaps in a visa-waiver program. Yesterday's massacre in San
Bernardino again underscores the ineffectiveness of relying upon bulk
data collection and intelligence agencies' watch-listing processes to
'keep us safe from terrorism.'

She wrote a piece for the Star Tribune, "Coleen Rowley: Ten years
after Iraq," which in 2013 gave an overview of major issues: "Ten
years ago, I made the ultimately futile effort of writing to FBI
Director Robert Mueller warning that he needed to tell the truth about
the Bush administration’s unjustified decision to preemptively invade
Iraq and the likelihood it would prove counterproductive. ...

"My letter compared Bush-Cheney’s rush to war with the impatience and
bravado that had led to the FBI’s disastrous 1993 assault at Waco,
where 'the children [the FBI] sought to liberate all died when [David]
Koresh and his followers set fires.' On a much more tragic scale,
hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians were killed and millions more
were wounded or displaced. Iraq’s infrastructure was destroyed. Severe
problems remain with lack of clean drinking water, electricity and a
lack of professionals in Iraq to help rebuild.

"Even worse, the flames of sectarian hatred were ignited, based on
religious and ethnic differences, leading to violent civil

Grassley Questions FBI on More Alleged Retaliation Against Whistleblowers
Sep 10, 2007

Grassley Questions FBI on More Alleged Retaliation Against Whistleblowers

WASHINGTON – Senator Chuck Grassley has again reminded the FBI that the law does not allow retaliation against government whistleblowers. Grassley reiterated his concerns to FBI Director Robert Mueller in a letter sent yesterday.

The Senator’s letter forwards allegations of retaliation against FBI Agent Bassem Youssef, chief of the Communications Analysis Unit. Youssef is the highest ranking Arab-American in the FBI. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Youssef raised concerns within the FBI that he, as one of the highest ranking Arabic-speaking agents, was not being assigned to cases related to the attacks.

“It seems like every time I turn around, there’s another allegation of whistleblower retaliation at the FBI. It appears to be second nature for them,” Grassley said. “Director Mueller has talked often about the fact that he won’t tolerate retaliation, but it doesn’t look like the message is getting through to his management team.”

Grassley is a senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and has conducted oversight of the FBI since the mid 1990s.

Here is a copy of the letter to Mueller. A copy of the signed letter along with the attachment can be found here.

September 6, 2007

The Honorable Robert S. Mueller


Federal Bureau of Investigation

935 Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.

Washington, D.C. 20535

Dear Director Mueller:

As you know, I believe that encouraging people to report waste, wrongdoing, or mismanagement in any organization is critical to improving the integrity and efficiency of its operations. Protecting whistleblowers from retaliation is critical if the leadership of an organization is serious about hearing what they have to say. Unfortunately, the FBI has a deeply engrained culture of retaliation, in which anyone who speaks out is branded as a troublemaker. Thus, many choose to stay silent rather than risk their careers.

To your credit, you have regularly stated that you will not tolerate retaliation against FBI whistleblowers. However, sometimes it appears as if your message is not being heard or understood by the management at the FBI. I am writing today to bring to your attention allegations I have received that illustrate how the FBI’s anti-whistleblower culture remains a serious problem and raise questions of potential witness intimidation.

Attached please find an internal FBI email from Agent Bassem Youssef, which was copied to you, where he reports several disturbing comments made by FBI personnel. As you know, Agent Youssef is a material witness in the Office of Inspector General’s (OIG’s) continuing inquiry into issues relating to National Security Letters and so-called “exigent letters.” Moreover, I understand that he will also be giving classified testimony in the OIG’s investigation of issues related to certain controversial National Security Agency surveillance programs.

In this context, the comments that I understand were made to Agent Youssef by senior Bureau officials raise serious questions about whether they were not only endorsing retaliation for past whistleblowing, but also attempting to influence Youssef’s upcoming testimony. For example, the email that you were provided states that in Youssef’s presence Agent Ed Moschella said of another whistleblower that the proper response was to “hang him.” Further, and in that same email, it says that Agent Don Robinson stated that at his interview with the OIG relating to the National Security Letters investigation, “I threw him [Bassem Youssef] under the bus.” Moreover, Youssef reported that another individual reportedly asked in connection with the National Security Letter inquiry, “Are you … getting ready to throw Bassem Youssef off the roof?"

Given your affirmative statements and assurances that you will not support retaliation against FBI whistleblowers, please provide written answers to the following questions:

1. How do you plan to deal with these comments?

2. Were you aware of the attached email prior to receiving this letter?

3. How have you dealt with this issue since you were copied on the email in early August?

4. Please provide a detailed written response outlining any steps you have taken to address these allegations and to ensure that Agent Youssef is free to give complete honest, forthcoming, and candid testimony in OIG inquiries without fear of reprisal.

If these allegations are true, it would be a disappointing confirmation that the FBI’s anti-whistleblower culture is as strong as ever. That culture will never change if senior officials are allowed to openly speak of retaliating against whistleblowers without fear of discipline for doing so. I appreciate your prompt written response no later than September 20, 2007.

All replies should be sent electronically in Adobe portable document format. Please have your staff contact XXXX at (202) 224-4515 with any questions regarding this matter.

New Crisis Center in CdA aims to keep people out of ER, jail

Don Robinson, director of mental health crisis center for Kootenai Health talked about the December 9 opening of the center at their office in Coeur d’Alene on Friday, November 20, 2015.

Northern Idaho Crisis Center ribbon-cutting and open house

When: Noon to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday

Where: Kootenai Health Campus, 2195 Ironwood Court, Coeur d’Alene

Phone: (208) 625-4884

More info: http://www.nicrisiscenter.org.

Early in his career as an FBI agent, Don Robinson worked as a crisis/hostage team negotiator.

He spent Friday and Saturday nights talking to suicidal people on bridges, or in phone conversations with others who’d barricaded themselves in their homes. The shifts gave him an appreciation for how mental illness and substance abuse derail lives.

As the director of the new Northern Idaho Crisis Center, Robinson and his staff will provide a refuge for people who find themselves spiraling out of control.

The center opens Wednesday in Coeur d’Alene. It will give individuals 18 and older a place to get immediate help for a mental health or addiction-related crisis, plus referrals for follow-up treatment. Admittance is voluntary, and people can stay at the center for up to 24 hours.

“It takes a lot of courage to make it up to the front door,” Robinson said last month, while giving tour of the 2,200-square-foot facility on the Kootenai Health campus. When people take that step, he wants them to find “a safe, warm, welcoming place.”

Besides private counseling rooms, the center will have a waiting area with coffee, snacks and Internet access, and respite rooms for napping.

Robinson recently retired after 23 years with the FBI, including seven years as head

FBI's 'Shark Tank' — bureau turns to field agents for mobile

The FBI is depending more on agents to help develop, test and adopt
mobile applications in the field.

The FBI is looking to field agents — and a reality TV show format — to
help develop the newest mobile technologies to support their mission.

Hoping to keep up with the pace of technology development, the bureau
is focusing on efforts that enable frontline personnel to drive
innovation, according to Kevin Tunks, product development and mobile
strategy lead in the FBI's mobile technology office.

One of those enablers came to Tunks and his team straight from the
television. They use a "Shark Tank" pitch meeting model to spur
internal innovation, he said Thursday at a Bloomberg Government event.
Just like the popular ABC television show, the FBI program lets people
with big ideas — in this case field agents — pitch their ideas for
mobile applications to a board of executives and other stakeholders.
But unlike the "sharks" on the show, the FBI team uses the model
because they "don't have a lot of development budget."

After the pitch, "as long as everybody [on the board] nods yes, or
doesn't say no, it moves forward," Tunks said, though he didn't
comment on the funding process once the ideas are approved. The agents
have 60 days to move their ideas into prototypes, he said.

"Worst case scenario, we've lost 60 days of somebody's time," Tunks
said. "Best case scenario, we've gotten a really transformational
product out of a group of people ... the people who really do the
mission that are creating a solution for themselves."

So far, the concept has resulted in "10-plus apps," he said, which
have been received well in the field, "because it was built by the
field, it was built for the field."

Tunks, who explained his role as taking the 30,000 Android phones the
FBI bought earlier this year "beyond just email ... to build custom
and internal apps that really unlock new business processes," said the
bureau is depending more on field agents, whether they're IT experts
or amateur mobile hobbyists who serve the bureau in some other
capacity, to help develop, test and adopt mobile applications in the
environments in which they're meant to be used.

"We really have turned a lot over to the field," Tunks said. "Our
moniker is 'How can we do IT at mission speed?'"

"We focus our small energies on being able to create platforms ... and
really leveraging our own internal resources to do things," he added.

Sometimes that means developing more effective governance so agents
can follow latest industry practices, he said, and sometimes that's
"building the underlying components that allow people to really build
on top of so that they're just doing that top of the

FBI will help investigate excessive force complaints against KC police, agreement says

State and federal officials will cooperate to determine jurisdiction

Four investigations already have been opened

Authorities will not reveal details of those cases
Officials announced Thursday an agreement that allows the FBI to step in to help investigations into complaints against Kansas City police officers, including officer-involved shooting and claims of excessive use of force. “It is our hope it will go a long way to sustain public trust,” said U.S. Attorney Tammy Dickinson (from left) at a news conference Thursday. Eric Jackson of the FBI, Sheryl Rose of the Kansas City Police Department and Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker also appeared at the announcement.

FBI agents will help investigate some officer-involved shootings and excessive force complaints against Kansas City police officers under an agreement the Police Department, federal officials and prosecutors signed earlier this year, officials announced Thursday.

Four cases already are under investigation, though authorities would not identify those Thursday.

Prosecutors, police and federal agents began discussing the arrangement 18 to 24 months ago — months before a white Ferguson, Mo., police officer’s fatal shooting of an unarmed black teen sparked prolonged protests and helped ignite the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Every member of the community expects and deserves the protection of law enforcement that is effective, resp

The Media Cover-Up of 9/11








Towers of Deception

A dozen carefully researched books have exposed the official story of 9/11 to be a terror fraud. Yet the mainstream media have monolithically failed to ask elementary questions about anomalies in this story. So-called alternative media have been little better. Towers of Deception explains why and prescribes actions to break out the truth.


Authored by a lifelong journalist who was for thirty-five years a media critic, Towers of Deception provides twenty-six "exhibits" of evidence proving "beyond a reasonable doubt" that 9/11 was an inside job. It then presents case histories of de facto censorship by mainstream media and examines the psychological phenomenon of denial. "False flag" operations and psychological warfare are dealt with in detail, as is the "invisible government"-the powers pulling strings behind the scenes. Following a profile of Dr. David Ray Griffin as an authentic prophet of the 9/11 truth movement, Towers of Deception urges people to speak truth to power and challenge all media.


Interspersed with photographs, diary entries, and inspiring profiles of those who see 9/11 truth as the Achilles' heel of the neocon agenda, Towers of Deception includes a professional-quality DVD produced by the author: The Great Conspiracy: The 9/11 News Special You Never Saw.

Yes FBI agents also assassinated President Kennedy

Letters to the Editor
FBI agents place their lives on the line for Americans


January 4 at 5:28 PM

Regarding Frank Askin’s Jan. 1 Washington Forum commentary, “Thanks for the surveillance, J. Edgar”:

The FBI gained greater authority to investigate civil rights matters with the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. After the law’s enactment, investigations revealed that the Soviet KGB, using the Communist Party USA, had infiltrated the civil rights movement in an effort to disrupt U.S. domestic stability and negatively influence U.S. foreign policy.

FBI special agents dedicated their lives to ensure that the movement was not deterred nor covertly influenced by foreign intelligence services; I would have sacrificed my life to further the movement’s cause. Under the leadership of FBI director J. Edgar Hoover and directors after him, FBI special agents did and continue to place their lives on the line every day to guarantee the constitutional rights of all Americans without fail.

David A. Espie, Crofton

The writer is a retired FBI special agent.

Miscommunication whips up worries about infiltration.

An allegation that undercover FBI agents were caught posing as militia members in southeast Oregon splashed around the Internet this week, but the story’s purported source says he made no such claim.

Chris Briels, who recently resigned his position as Harney County fire chief, says Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore, whose Wednesday press release sparked concern about a throwback to FBI infiltration and dirty tricks against activists, must have misunderstood him.

Fiore’s release said Briels had determined “men posing as ‘militia’ were the FBI.” Briels tells U.S. News he did indeed catch undercover FBI agents in small-town Burns, near where armed protesters are occupying a federal wildlife refuge, but that they were not posing as militia.

“They weren’t posing as anything other than dishonest people,” he says. “They were perceived as militia by the locals, but they weren’t posing out there with a shirt that said ‘I’m militia.’”

The refuge takeover that began Jan. 2 has strained Briels’ friendships in small-town Burns, prompting him to keep an eye out for trouble. He serves on a committee set up by activists, and a
