U.S. House lawmakers criticized Homeland Security officials Tuesday for not reducing costs on the lead up to the March 1 sequestration, the Washington Post reports.

Homeland Security Undersecretary of Management Rafael Borras said he didn’t believe the automatic cuts would take place.

Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee said the department should not have ignored the reality of the cuts.

Lawmakers also questioned the sincerity of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano saying that lines at major airports have doubled, the Post reported.

Borras said he was unaware of wait times doubling and said that overtime reductions had “resulted in some additional wait time.”

A retired FBI agent accused of trying to derail an investigation into military fraud was jailed Tuesday pending trial after a federal judge in Utah said he violated terms of his release, the Salt Lake Tribune reports

U.S. District Court judge ordered Robert G. Lustyik Jr., 50, to jail after prosecutors provided “clear and convincing” evidence that the 50-year-old retired agent asked a third party to deliver cash to apotential witness in the case, the Tribune wrote.

“I don’t make the decision lightly, nor do I make it happily, but I think the evidence demands it,” U.S. District Court Judge Dustin Pead said, according to the Tribune.

Lustyik is accused to trying to thwart an investigation into Michael Taylor’s role in the alleged scheme, which the government says involves Taylor and two other men conspiring to land a $54 million contract for security and training services to Afghan special forces by using inside information, the Tribune reported.

A sheriff’s deputy in Tennessee found himself on the wrong side of the law this week.

The Murfreesboro Post reports that Rutherford County Deputy Louis R. Parra-Flores, 36, was busted following an undercover drug investigation involving cocaine.

The DEA accuses Flores of attempting to deliver 7 kilograms of cocaine, the Post reported.

“The actions of a few corrupt law enforcement officers harms the reputation of the many dedicated men and women who wear the badge with honor,” said U.S. Attorney Jerry E. Martin.

Experts Optimistic That $500M in Stolen Art Will Be Recovered Despite Passing of Nearly 25 Years

Now that the FBI says it knows the identity of the suspects behind the heist of $500 million of art from Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the question is: Will the feds recover rare works after nearly 25 years?

Art experts told the Washington Post that the chances are surprisingly good.

Christopher Marinello, an attorney for The Art Loss Register, a database of stolen artwork, said the stolen works by Rembrandt, Vermeer and Manet likely will surface.

“A quarter of a century is not that unusual for stolen paintings to be returned,” the attorney, Christopher Marinello, told the Washington Post. “Eventually they will resurface. Somebody will rat somebody else out. It’s really only a matter of time.”

The FBI announced Monday that it has identified the two men who posed as cops and took off with 13 works of art.

The Justice Department has abandoned it’s long-standing opposition to requiring law enforcement to obtain a warrant before gaining access to certain e-mails, the Washington Post reports.

The department had objected to law enforcement accessing e-mails that are 180 days old or less if they had been unopened, the Post reported.

“There is no principled basis” to treat e-mails differently based on age, said Elana Tyrangiel, acting assistant attorney general in the department’s Office of Legal Policy, said Tuesday while testifying before a House Judiciary Committee.

Tyrangiel also said opened and unopened mail should be treated no differently.

Currently law enforcement may obtain older or opened e-mails with just a subpoena, the Post reported.

Hats should be classic. This means that they should be in the colors of the actual team. If your team color isn’t black NBA Caps, than neither should your hat be.
