Been blowing up on us as they say

Setting itself terms not just for their constituencies but for the country as a whole, these members of Congress reduced the full repertoire of possibilities for policy to a narrower set of feasible options that met with their approval, or at least their forbearance.

Rise in Pill Abuse Forces New Look at U.S. Drug Fight

By DAMIEN CAVE and MICHAEL S. SCHMIDT
New York Times

MEXICO CITY — America’s drug problem is shifting from illicit substances like cocaine to abuse of prescription painkillers, a change that is forcing policy makers to re-examine the long and expensive strategy of trying to stop illegal drugs from entering the United States.

This rethinking extends beyond the United States, where policy makers are debating how to better reduce demand for painkillers. The effects would also be felt here and in Central America: With the drug wars in Mexico inflaming violence, some argue that the money now used for interdiction could be better spent building up the institutions — especially courts and prosecutors’ offices — that would lead to long-term stability in Mexico and elsewhere.

An Ohio man who was fatally shot by an FBI agent during a raid on his home on June 28 was a registered sex offender,  the Dayton Daily News reports.

Fallacy Myers, 43, was convicted of indecent solicitation of a child in 1995 in Kansas, and was a registered sex offender until February 2007, according to the Dayton Daily News.

Myers also has a criminal record that includes several burglaries dating back to the late 1980s.

The FBI has declined to comment on the shooting or the search warrant.

First Two Female FBI Agents Faced Challenges

Joanne Pierce Misko, in red and lower right, and Susan Roley Malone, seen at the FBI Training Academy in 1972, and today, were the first women of the modern era to become special agents.

Women were not allowed to become FBI agents until weeks after longtime FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover died, the FBI reports in a series about female special agents.

The bureau changed its policy, in part because of new equal-rights laws.

The first women of the modern era to become special agents were former Marine Susan Roley Malone and nun Joanne Pierce Misko, who were not always embraced by colleagues.

After clearing every hurdle, the doubters subsided, the FBI reported.

The pair completed training in October 1972.

Here’s the FBI’s story as it appears on the agency’s website: 

They were known as the nun and the Marine. The respective backgrounds of Joanne Pierce Misko and Susan Roley Malone could not have been more dissimilar. But 40 years ago, on July 17, 1972, the two women were drawn together by a shared goal—to become FBI special agents.

Up until then, under the leadership of longtime FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, only men could be agents. But just weeks after Hoover died in May 1972, the Bureau’s acting director—motivated in part by new equal rights laws—changed the men-only policy that had been in place since the Prohibition Era. So on a balmy Monday exactly four decades ago, the two women assembled with 43 similarly pressed and starched men at FBI Headquarters to take their oath before heading down to the FBI Training Academy in Quantico, Virginia for 14 weeks (now 20) of physical and mental conditioning.

The new agent training was tough enough on its own—firearms, strength, endurance, self-defense, academics. But for Misko and Malone, who were expected to meet the requirements long in place for males, there was the added dimension of their novelty, which was not universally embraced at first.

“I’m sure when they first saw that there were two women in their class it was like, ‘Oh, we got them,’” Misko recalled in a recent interview. Malone, who had already broken some stereotypes as a Marine, remembers a fellow classmate confronting her during a break, brusquely asking why she thought she could be an FBI agent. “And I sat down and I talked to him,” Malone stated. “I said, ‘I love my country just like you do. I want to be here for the same reasons that you want to be here.’” He heard her out. And in the weeks that followed, the two women set out to demonstrate that they belonged in their coveted slots in New Agent Class 73-1. They won over some of the most ardent doubters by rising to every challenge and helping their classmates over some hurdles along the way. In the crucible of training, the group bonded quickly.

Paterno Family Skeptical of Louie Freeh’s Findings in Sex Scandal

Joe Paterno’s family pledged Monday to launch its own investigation into the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal, saying ex-FBI Director Louie Freeh, who headed up the investigation, got it wrong, the Associated Press reports.

“Our interest has been and remains the uncovering of the truth,” the family said in a statement.

Saying Paterno, who died in January, did not knowingly protect a pedophile, the family criticized the accuracy of the 267-page report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh, the AP reported.

In the report, Freeh concluded that Paterno knew about allegations against Sandusky since at least 1998 and even intervened when top Penn State officials planned to take allegations to authorities in 2001.
