FBI Plans Soften, Victim-Centric Approach to Cracking Down on Prostitution During Super Bowl

The FBI is taking a softer approach to cracking down on sex trafficking during the Super Bowl.

The Associated Press reports that agents will offer to provide women an opportunity to get out of prostitution and turn in their traffickers.

The softer approach, which focuses on the victim, will take place during the lead-up to the Super Bowl in San Francisco.

“The goal is to reach anyone who is being trafficked,” FBI Supervisory Special Agent Doug Hunt, who manages the San Francisco office’s anti-trafficking efforts, which will also include sting operations the agency has used before at previous Super Bowls.

Super Bowls have traditionally attracted sex traffickers.

Appeals Court: Different Standards for FBI Fitness Test Is Not Discrimination

The FBI’s physical fitness test has different standards for men and women. Men, for example, must do more than twice the number of push-ups as women.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit dismissed a challenge to the test by a man who was turned down to become special agent because he could only do 29 of the required 30 push-ups, The Washington Post reports. 

Jay J. Bauer filed a discrimination suit, saying he was held to a different standard than women.

But the appeals court said that’s not necessarily a problem because the “physical fitness standards suitable for men may not always be suitable for women, and accommodations addressing physiological differences between the sexes are not necessarily unlawful.”

Women are required to perform 14 push-ups.

Donald Trump Urges FBI to Pursue Charges Against Clinton, Saying He’d Rather Face Bernie Sanders

Donald Trump is urging the FBI to aggressively pursue charges against Hillary Clinton for using a private email server while she was secretary of state, saying he would rather run against Bernie Sanders, Politico reports. 

“There is no answer to what she did. You know the amazing thing, other than greed, there was no — what’s she doing?” Trump asked. “You just use what you’re supposed to use, and you assume people are listening. Who the hell cares? And then you do what you have to do. All this for what? It’s greed. It’s really just greed in its own way. All she had to do was just do what she was supposed to do.”

Trump said he’d “love to run against Bernie,” calling Sanders a coward after he allowed Black Lives Matters protesters to steal the stage from him in Seattle in August.

“He walked back like a little puppy. This is gonna be our president,” Trump said. “I would love—please FBI, please go after Hillary. I wanna run against Bernie!”

The DEA arrested two of Flores’ nephews in Haiti in November, and they were charged with conspiring to smuggle cocaine into the U.S.

“The DEA committed the crime of kidnapping,” Flores said.
