Two Virginia men who were arrested by the FBI for allegedly plotting bomb and shooting attacks on black churches and synagogues wanted to start a race war, New York Magazine reports. 

Federal court documents allege that Robert Doyle and Ronald Beasely Chaney planned to rob a jeweler store, gun shop and armored truck so they could purchase land and “stockpile weapons and train for the coming race war.”

But that plot was quickly dashed by an undercover FBI who took a delivery order for weapons.

The men were arrested and charged.

Federal Lawsuit: FBI Agents Used Excessive Force with 3 Children in Drug Raid

A federal lawsuit accuses FBI agents of using excessive force during a drug raid at a New Mexican trailer where three children were sleeping, the Albuquerque Journal reports.

According to the suit, FBI agents blew open the front door with a stun grenade, causing shrapnel to strike a 10-year-old boy in the head and shoulder. A 12-year-old girl was forced to walk outside on glass, cutting her feet. All three children, including the 9-year-old, were emotionally traumatized, the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Las Cruces alleges.

The May 2013 raid was part of a pre-dawn bust of 22 suspected drug and gun dealers.

The FBI declined to comment on pending litigation.

The FBI is investigating whether Milford, Conn., officials misused millions of federal dollars to help clean up the damage from Superstorm Sandy, NBC Connecticut reports. 

Chairman of the Milford Republic Town Committee Paul Beckwith said the FBI Public Corruption Task Force interviewed several city employees.

“They shared with us they had been questioned about funding issues within the City of Milford concerning FEMA grants,” Beckwith said.

Agents are concerned that millions of dollars in federal funds may have been misused.

Arizona Republic: More Transparency Is Required to Keep Border Patrol Honest

Cops and the public should demand high standards from law enforcement. Why? Because high standards foster community confidence and cooperation. Both are necessary to good police work.

That’s especially important for Customs and Border Protection, which is charged with protecting the integrity of our ports and borders.

Why? Because what CBP does is a matter of national security. The agency’s actions need to be professional, transparent and in accord with our national commitment to human rights.

But the lack of transparency about use of deadly force at CBP, the nation’s largest law-enforcement agency, is a disturbing theme that is illustrated by three recent developments.

The first involves the trial of Border Patrol agent Lonnie Swartz, who is charged with killing 16-year-old Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez three years ago by shooting through the border fence into Nogales, Sonora.

In granting a delay in the trial, U.S. District Court Judge Raner Collins issued a protection order for at least two videos of the incident that CBP has previously refused to release, despite Freedom of Information requests from The Arizona Republic.

The agent shot the teen, who was allegedly throwing rocks, at least 10 times in the back and head. Witnesses say the boy was just walking down the street. The videos could help reveal the truth, but CBP stonewalled and now the public will have to wait even longer to know the truth.

Arizona Republic research found that on-duty Border Patrol and Customs officers have killed at least 53 people since 2005, including 15 Americans. The officers involved rarely faced consequences.

Agent Swartz is only the third Border Patrol agent prosecuted since 2005 and the first to be charged by the Justice Department. The others were not convicted in local prosecutions.

A former Border Patrol agent faces up to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty to murder in the fatal shooting of a man who had been dating his wife, the Corpus Christi Caller Times reports. 

Adam S. Garibay pleaded guilty Monday to the shooting death of Keith J. Martin at the victim’s parents’ home in Corpus Christi.

Garibay said he was heartbroken and couldn’t remember the shooting.

“It was too much for my mind and heart and I broke inside. I am at a loss for living or reason,” said a document admitted as evidence in a punishment hearing that began Monday.

Garibay shot Martin 10 times from behind, police said.
