FBI Investigating Threat Against Ole Miss Trees, Shrubs Ahead of Rivalry

By Steve Neavling

As far as threats go, this isn’t the FBI’s most dire.

The bureau launched an investigation into an anonymous letter that threatened someone would damage trees and shrubs in the Center of Ole Miss’ campus, the USA Today reports.

“What’s going to happen to y’all on the field Saturday Aint nothing compared to what’s going to happen on your beautiful campus,” the letter read. “You won’t be one of the most pretty campus’s Next year. A lot of shrubs and trees are going to die; especially in the grove. Can’t stop us.” (SIGNED) “Hail State go to hell TSUN”

Ole Miss handed over the note to the FBI’s Jackson office.

University police chief Calvin Sellers said the threat is no laughing matter.

“This longtime football rivalry has separated families and friends for generations, but while it’s spirited, our attention has been focused mostly on the football field,” Sellers said. “We encourage everyone to remember that this is a game, after all, not a time for hate. We are hopeful that passions have not escalated to the point that someone is prepared to do damage to a landmark for which all Mississippians take great pride.”

Two Houston-area investigators were working on an embezzlement case when authorities said the men helped themselves to hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of rare comic, the Associated Press reports.

Dustin Deutsch, 41, and Lonnie Blevins, 39, are accused of stealing the vintage comics from an evidence storage unit in 2012 while working on an embezzlement case for the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. The suspect was accused of buying valuable collectibles with money he had stolen from his employer, a crane-manufacturing company.

Included in the collection was a first-edition Batman comic that could fetch about $900,000, the AP wrote.

Islamic State supporters are calling on lone-wolf attacks in areas where law enforcement is distracted by unrest in the wake of the Ferguson grand jury decision, HSToday.com reports.

The supporters are using social media to spread the message.

In one tweet, Al Nusra Al Maqdisiyya, a popular group of pro-ISIS activists, wrote “O lone mujahid, you must use the breakdown of security in #Ferguson to increase the burning in America. They are squabbling over worldly [matters], so you send them to hell! #ISIS.”

Another tweet from ISIS supporters read, “O supporters of the Islamic State in America, what is happening in #Ferguson is a valuable opportunity that will not return. Rise up and engage them with themselves, away from the mujahideen. Spill their blood in the roads and in the neighborhoods.”

Law enforcement agencies are sharing the information to help avoid an ambush.

ATF Investigates Intentionally Set Church Fire in Ferguson Where Brown’s Dad Attended

By Steve Neavling

The ATF is investigating an intentionally set fire at a church where Michael Brown’s father regularly attended in Ferguson, Mo., the St Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The Flood Christian Church was among dozens of buildings that were torched following the grand jury’s decision not to indict the white police officer who shot and killed a black teenager, Brown.

It’s unclear who started the fire, but the senior pastor, Carlton Lee, said he’d received more than 80 death threats because of his connection with Brown and the protests. He said his dog was poisoned and someone threatened to burn down his church.

The ATF said it’s investigating more than a dozen fires related to Ferguson.

Two FBI agents were shot while helping police execute a search warrant near Ferguson early Wednesday, Reuters reports.

The FBI said the shooting was unrelated to the unrest in Ferguson, where protesters have been gathering for months after a white police officer shot an unarmed black teen.

“The incident is not directly related to the Ferguson protests,” FBI spokeswoman Rebecca Wu said.

One agent was shot in the leg and the other was shot in the shoulder.

The injuries are not life-threatening, the bureau said.

Two Young Minnesota Residents Charged in Alleged Attempt to Join, Help Islamic State

By Steve Neavling

Two young Minnesota residents are accused of conspiring to join the radical group Islamic State and provide it with “material support,” Minnesota Public Radio reports.

Abdullah Yusuf, 18, and Abdi Nur, 20, are facing federal conspiracy charges. Both were charged with “conspiracy to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization.”

The men planned to join Islamic State to “to engage in a campaign of terror in support of a violent ideology,” U.S. Attorney Luger said in a statement.

Yusuf, a college student, was arrested as he prepared to board a flight to Turkey.

“His parents did not know that Yusuf had obtained a passport and planned to travel to Turkey, nor did they know that he had acquired $1,500 and purchased an airline ticket,” prosecutors allege.

Investigators said Nur left for Turkey on May 29 and didn’t return as scheduled.

USA Today Editorial: TSA Takes Sensible Steps to Improving Security, Airport Experience

tsa.gov

USA Today
By Editorial Board

Holiday air travel seems to get more unpleasant with each passing year, especially if you’re flying coach. Planes are packed. Seats are cramped. Overhead bins are overloaded. Free meals are non-existent.

But one part of the airport experience has been improving, and — believe it or not — it’s the part controlled by the government. Four years after the pre-Thanksgiving “don’t touch my junk” uproar over intrusive pat-downs, the Transportation Security Administration has made significant strides toward a more common-sense approach to screening.

TSA has accomplished this even as airlines have made the screeners’ job harder by imposing hefty bag-check fees that encourage fliers to schlep their densely packed luggage through security and onto planes.

The most welcome change at the checkpoint: No longer is everyone — from toddlers to wheelchair-bound octogenarians — treated like a terrorist.

Expedited, “risk-based” security is now available to children under 12, seniors 75 and older, members of the armed services and other low-risk fliers. Most significantly, the PreCheck program has enrolled more than 700,000 travelers who can go through special lanes where they don’t have to remove shoes, belts, light jackets or laptops.

As a result of these and other steps, complaints are down more than 25% and wait times have been reduced, says TSA Administrator John Pistole, who is stepping down next month after four-and-a-half years on the job.
