FBI Says Cop Killings Are ‘the New Norm,’ Inspired by Black Lives Matter

An internal FBI investigation concluded that the media, Black Lives Matter and politicians are to blame for the spike on attacks on police.

“Law enforcement officials believe that defiance and hostility displayed by assailants toward law enforcement appears to be the new norm,” said the internal report stamped “For Official Use Only,” The Washington Examiner reports.

On Tuesday, two Chicago cops were injured in “targeted” shootings.

The four-page report traces the spike in shootings of police back to Ferguson, where the death of Michael Brown sparked protests nationwide.

In at least a quarter of the 53 shootings that killed 60 police in 2016, the FBI found that the gunmen were targeting police to kill them.

A 26-year-old man who used a semi-automatic rifle to kill a TSA officer and wound three others at Los Angeles International Airport because he was angry about security checks pleaded guilty to murder and 10 other charges on Tuesday.

Paul Ciancia pleaded as part of a deal with prosecutors that will keep him off death row. Instead, he will face mandatory life in prison, the Los Angeles Times reports. 

Federal authorities said Ciancia shot TSA Officer Gerardo Hernandez 12 times at a passenger ID checkpoint in November 2013. Three other TSA officers were injured.

Ciancia was captured on security cameras as he stalked his victims.

A note from Ciancia said he was angry with airport security checks.

Alcohol played a role in a boat crash that killed two FBI employees on the Ohio River near Cincinnati in September, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The off-duty employees, Bryce Eastlick, 28, and John Stack II, 29, were killed after their 19-foot boat smashed into a massive barge on Sept. 25.

“The toxicology report did confirm that it was alcohol related,” an official at the coroner’s office said Wednesday.

The coroner didn’t divulge details, such as the men’s blood alcohol content.

The men were dead when rescuers arrived and likely died on impact.

“I don’t believe there was any suffering,” Cincinnati District Fire Chief Lou Arnold said.

Lawsuit Seeks to Name Border Patrol Agent Who Shot, Killed 16-Year-Old in Nogales

Civil rights lawyers are suing federal government to force the disclosure of the name of the Border Patrol agent who shot and killed a 16-year-old teen in the back.

“This is an extraordinary request by the government and just one more example of how the Border Patrol attempts to shield its unlawful actions from the public. The rule of law demands transparency—that’s all we’re asking for,” said Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the ACLU’s national Immigrants’ Rights Project in a news release.

The body of Jose Antonio Elena Rodriguez was found about 40 feet from the border near the port of entry in Nogales.

Border Patrol said the agent was responding to rock throwers, but a witness disputes that.

CBP has agreed to release the name of the agent, but only if the identity is kept hidden from the public.

“The public interest in knowing the identity of a federal agent sued for the use of deadly force during his official duties is paramount,” attorneys wrote.

Border Patrol Agent Who Fatally Shot Rock-Throwing Suspect Had Just Over 2 Years on Job

The Border Patrol agent who pulled the trigger in a deadly shooting along the California-Mexico border last week had just over two years on the job, ABC 10 News reports.

Agent Daniel Basinger is now back on duty.

The shooting happened around 6:40 a.m. on Feb. 18 after two agents split up to capture fleeing suspects who were trying to cross the border into the U.S. That’s when a third suspect was spotted.

Basinger “ordered the man to stop in English and Spanish but he fled on foot,” Giannantonio said. “The agent chased after him, following him down a ravine and back up the opposite hillside.”

The agent then came under attack from fist-sized rocks thrown by the suspect.

“One of the larger rocks struck the agent in the head,” he said. “Fearing that another rock strike to the head could kill or incapacitate him, the agent fired his duty pistol at least twice at the man, striking him.”

Border Patrol Agent Remembered After Fatal Car Crash in California

A 26-year-old Border Agent who died in a car crash in California was recently married and on his way to work without a seat belt Friday, KSWT News 12 reports.

The accident that killed agent Francisco Puga, of the El Centro Sector, remains under investigation.

“We have an idea that most likely we’re not going to come back that day because maybe we’re going to die fighting a criminal sometimes and most of the time we don’t think we’re going to die because of a car accident either on duty or on our way to work,” Agent Amaya told News 12.

Since Puga wasn’t officially on duty at the time of the accident, his family is not entitled to extra compensation, News 12 reported.
