The FBI released a video of the fatal shooting of one of the armed protesters who took over a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon.

Robert “LaVoy Finicum, 56, was killed during a clash with police during a traffic stop that led to the arrest of five others.

“I want to caution you that the video does show the shooting death of LaVoy Finicum,” said Greg Bretzing, the special agent in charge of the FBI field office in Portland. “We realize that viewing that piece of the video will be upsetting to some people, but we feel that it is necessary to show the whole thing unedited in the interest of transparency.”

Some protesters remain at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

An FBI Employee in the bureau’s Chicago office has been charged with raping a teenage babysitter in his Indiana home.

ABC7 reports that James Luttinen, 33, is accused of raping the teenage relative in July while he was drunk and his family was in the next room at his home in northwest Indiana.

Although court records indicate he admitted sexually assaulting the girl in July, he continued working at the FBI field office until an arrest warrant was filed two weeks ago.

The computer systems specialist for the FBI had high security clearance and worked at the office since 2009.

According to a police affidavit, Luttinen gave the girl alcohol and said he was “three sheets to the wind”  and there was this “young, good-looking girl, rubbing up against him” so  “I decided to just go with it.”

PJ Media: Ted Cruz Best Presidential Candidate to Repair Justice Department

Of the remaining Republican presidential candidates, Senator Ted Cruz is the best choice to repair the mess that Eric Holder and Barack Obama have left at the United States Department of Justice. Cruz alone has an understanding of both the corrosive and lawless policies of the last seven years as well as the complex task of restoring the rule of law.

Cruz has an outsider’s zeal to reverse Obama’s lawlessness with the insider’s ability to overcome bureaucratic inertia.

No matter what issue you care about most, all policy roads lead through the Justice Department bureaucracy. If you care about energy, national security, religious liberty, immigration or the power of government, it is the Justice Department lawyers that develop the intricate legal policies that support the agency decisions. They are the lawyers that make the litigation decisions. That’s precisely why Obama installed a radical ideological crony like Eric Holder to lead the place.

When Obama radicalized the Justice Department, he radicalized the government.

Donald Trump doesn’t talk much about this radicalization at Obama’s Justice Department. When Trump touches on Obama’s radicalization of the ministerial state, Trump’s understanding is a mile wide and an inch deep. Ted Cruz has an understanding of Justice Department radicalization that is a mile wide and miles deep.

I know this because Senator Cruz is one of the few senators who display any comprehension of the radical transformation taking place inside Justice. When Holder or other administration officials go before the Judiciary Committee, Cruz is one of the senators who can be counted on to conduct real oversight.

Former ATF Director Calls New NFL Job ‘a Dream Come True’

Former ATF Director B. Todd Jones has been tapped as special counsel for conduct for the National Football League, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. 

After overseeing investigations into mass shootings and the Boston Marathon shooting, the retired director will have a much more fun assignment.

“For a lifelong football fan, it’s a dream come true,” Jone said, quipping: “When I watch football on Sunday now, and my wife says, ‘What are you doing?’ I say I am working.”

The NFL approached Jones as the league was battling criticism for its handling of off-the-field conduct by football players.

“There was a recognition that they needed someone with the experiences I had, my familiarity with the criminal justice system, someone who had done internal investigations in the private sector, who could help expand the code of conduct, which was on paper but not reflected in how the clubs operate,” Jones said.

Jones is a big Vikings fan, but he said he’ll have to keep that in check.

Homeland Security Unable to Account for Hundreds of Millions of Dollars for Training

Somehow Homeland Security has lost track of hundreds of millions of dollars for training employees, according to a report by the department’s office of inspector general, the Washington Times reports. 

The department was only able to account for $1.9 million of $1.4 billion that was appropriated in fiscal 2014.

Hundreds of millions were also unaccounted for the previous year.

In addition, the TSA failed to report any training costs for January 2015, but said the agency spent more than $23 million that year.

The Washington Times reports that Homeland Security has been unable to make progress following 29 recommendations by federal watchdogs to improve training management and oversight.

“The investment of significant resources into these working groups should have resulted in the implementation of improved processes, oversight, and management of DHS workforce training,” the inspector general’s report says. “However, there is little evidence DHS has tracked or implemented any of these recommendations.”
