FBI Investigator Alleges in Suit She was Ordered to Wear High Heels and Smile More

By Allan Lengel

A former FBI supervisory investigative specialist in Omaha filed a federal lawsuit on Monday alleging her boss treated her as a stereotypical “angry black female,” then ordered her to wear high heels and smile more often, the Omaha World-Herald reports.

Georgia M. Scott, who still works for the FBI and lives in San Marcos, Tex.  is seeking  unspecified damages based on wages lost because of what she says was a discriminatory demotion and transfer to the San Antonio division, the paper reports.

Scott was hired by the FBI in 1998, then promoted to be a supervisory investigative specialist and moved to work in Omaha with the Mobile Surveillance Team in December 2009, the paper reports. She was the only black female supervisor in Omaha at that time, the suit states.

The lawsuit seeks damages for the “harassing and discriminatory actions inflicted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (the “FBI”) on an AfricanAmerican female employee, Georgia Scott (“Plaintiff” or “Ms. Scott”), and retaliation against her for engaging in protected activity.”

DEA Creates Omaha Division Office, In Part to Battle Opioids

The DEA is establishing an Omaha Field Division, its 23rd division office in the nation.

The division will include Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.

“In January, DEA reorganized its field divisions for the first time in nearly 20 years. Today, just five months later, we are adding another new field division,”  Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement. “That’s because we are facing a drug threat today the likes of which we have never seen before—but we are rising to the challenge. The Omaha Division will help us address the methamphetamine and opioid threat in Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota. The people of these states can rest assured that, in the face of an unprecedented crisis, we are taking steps to be more effective and put the traffickers and crooked doctors where they belong—behind bars.”

“This action converts the existing Omaha District Office into a division in an effort to enhance DEA enforcement efforts within the Great Plain states region and unify drug trafficking investigations under a single Special Agent in Charge,” said DEA Acting Administrator Robert W. Patterson.

Off-Duty FBI Agent Prompts Debate about Guns in Nebraska Schools

An off-duty FBI agent’s decision to take a gun into an elementary school in Nebraska has prompted debate about addressing the state’s gun law, Omaha World-Herald reports.

A parent at a Papillion elementary school spotted the gun and asked the school board to clarify the law on plainclothes officers carrying weapons.

Nebraska law, which bars weapons from school grounds, makes an exception for on-duty law enforcement, Omaha World-Herald wrote.

What’s unclear is whether off-duty offices can possess guns on school property.

Now local officials are calling on state lawmakers to clarify the law.
