"...The Kingsmen recorded "Louie Louie" for $36. The FBI investigated whether the song included obscene lyrics..."
"...A press conference Tuesday afternoon at Round Rock Police headquarters revealed little more than that RRPD is working in conjunction with the TCSO, FBI, Texas Department of Public Safety, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and has yet to make any arrests. ..."
"...We're also invited into the hardcore, fascinating lives of two new power players, played by two incredible actresses: Sandrine Holt as an implacable and funny corporate monster, and Grace Gummer as a snake-in-the-grass FBI agent with stars in her eyes and knives in her boots. The always disarming (but not usually as chatty, a side to his charisma we don't usually get to see) Craig Robinson also joins the cast as a mysterious friend of Mr..."
"...The inherent question is: Of all professions available in America, why wouldn't deep psychological evaluation and (continuous) background checking rest at the foundation of prospective officer resourcing – especially given the longstanding knowledge (substantiated by a 2006 FBI report, "White Supremacist Infiltration of Law Enforcement") that white supremacists and racist sympathizers have infiltrated America's police force?..."
"...Though no arrests have been made and Paltauf's family cannot say for certain whether their daughter is in fact deceased, the case has seen its share of action. In 2014, after APD received what could be considered a credible tip about "a body" potentially "buried in a shallow grave," the department teamed with the FBI to run a search on a 10-acre tract of land nearby..."

"...Hillary Clinton will not face criminal charges for keeping classified documents on a private email server while she was secretary of state, FBI Director James Comey announced this week. Unsurprisingly, Sen..."
"...Means, a live wire if there ever was one, in turn threw a stink to everyone – calling ATD managers Carlton Thomas, Steve Grassfield, and David Bracken before hitting up the Chronicle and eventually Mayor Steve Adler. By late afternoon on May 27, Adler had forwarded Means a memo carbon copied to him that requested an "expedited process" to "bring licensed taxicab and FBI fingerprinted independent contract drivers" into Austin from Houston and San Antonio..."
"...The first time we see Lecter, he is already a caged animal, having been captured by FBI profiler Will Graham (wonder why William Petersen was handed the lead in CSI? His sense of enthralled detachment, displayed here). But he’s not the protagonist here, but an evil enabler to the Tooth Fairy (Tom Noonan), the next serial killer that Graham has been charged with finding...."
"...In fact, he set Childs' car on fire and went to Mexico for several months. The FBI eventually caught up with him in May, after he returned to Texas to see his family..."
"...Of course, that leaves out the Banksy episode, the tattooed baby in a duffel bag that leads to a Never Let Me Go organ farm conspiracy, and most of all it neglects to take into account the two episodes featuring 2015's most wonderful secondary character "Rich Dotcom," a roguish, cheeky power-bottom/art thief who escapes the FBI, at one point, using a paragliding apparatus he has cleverly concealed in his tuxedo...."
"...I think fingerprinting is the only proper way to do a background check because it includes the cold case files. I called the FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., to verify..."
"...After she eventually opened up to her juvenile probation officer about the horrors she had endured, the officer reached out to multiple law enforcement agencies in hopes of establishing a case for the child. Where the FBI did nothing, Melton said, officials from the sheriff's office had recently been trained on human trafficking and recognized the case for what it was...."
"...Crusaders all, intent on not only opening but kicking down and setting aflame Aldous Huxley's "doors of perception," the Brotherhood basically owned the sale and distribution of LSD, hashish, and later on, cocaine, not just in America but literally the world. What began as a high-minded, idealistic journey to seek a higher plane of existence ended up drawing the attention of not only local police but also the FBI, CIA, and President Nixon himself...."
"...ISIS was also able to transcend its ideology beyond its geographical borders; creating a fan base across the globe that subscribes to ISIS’ ideology without necessarily being ISIS members. Commenting on the case of Terry Loewen, an American citizen who was radicalized online and was accused of plotting an attack on Wichita Airport in Kansas in 2013, FBI Director James Comey was quoted in a 2015 report, “ISIS on the West: The New Faces of Extremism,” as saying, “We have made it so hard for people to get into this country, bad guys, but they can enter as a photon and radicalize somebody in Wichita, Kansas.”..."
"...Buck Pollard's speedy and peculiar exit as longtime chief leaves the position in turmoil for the former city-dwelling FBI agent McBride, who steps in unaware of the generations-deep web of good ol' boy secrets. The story starts off with a double murder, and the plot just gets twistier – terrible for McBride and his angsty (but likable) teenage son Ethan, but great for the reader..."
"...(The U.S. Marshals Service denied any involvement, and the FBI declined to comment.) On Feb..."
"... I agree with your criticism that many personalities should not have been merged into one. However, many people after seeing the movie will not completely understand the times and circumstances beyond how Dalton Trumbo's own life was affected. Nor should we be lulled into believing that anti-Communism is something from a bygone era as the FBI and state and local police still clandestinely operate "Red Squads" intended to deprive people of their constitutionally protected rights of freedom of speech and freedom of association. Perhaps it is too much to expect from Hollywood to make a movie dealing with all facets of McCarthyism. How many people know that it was the great "liberal" Hubert H..."
"...Working on these films often put him at great physical risk. He was blacklisted, and the FBI conducted a smear campaign against him..."
"...Especially in the context of Austin's utterly inadequate mass transit network, I don't blame Adler and the others for trying whatever they can to appease the companies, make the regulations sufficient and workable, and both provide safe rides-for-hire and protect full-time drivers from even more erosion of their inadequate incomes. While the nominal issue is "fingerprinting" – and the enforcement agencies from the FBI down to Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo confirmed that fingerprints add an extra layer of certitude to the name-based security checks of the companies – it's something of a distraction...."
"...Unsurprisingly, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott was among the first to blame the victims for the European refugee crisis, in a letter informing President Obama that "the State of Texas will not accept any refugees from Syria in the wake of the deadly terrorist attack in Paris." Quoting (out of context) FBI Director James Comey on the difficulty of background checks – although in fact the federal government has already performed lengthy, successful reviews of about 2,000 Syrian nationals seeking asylum – Abbott insists it's just too dangerous: "American humanitarian compassion could be exploited to expose Americans to ....."
"...District Judge Lee Yeakel issued an order dismissing an indictment against Kleinert that he'd committed manslaughter when he killed Larry Jackson. The decision was strictly technical; Kleinert may have recklessly caused Jackson's death under a bridge along the Shoal Creek Trail on July 26, 2013, but he did so while working on full-time assignment as a member of the FBI's Central Texas Violent Crimes Task Force..."
"...However, a trial on those charges never happened. In April, Kleinert went before Judge Yeakel in an effort to transfer his case from Travis County into a federal court, citing the fact that he was working as a member off the Central Texas Violent Crime Task Force, a multi-agency team created by the FBI, and thus should be granted federal-officer removal jurisdiction – removing him from the potentially more liberal county court altogether..."
"...Read in the current U.S. (and worldwide) political context of yet another cultural convulsion over immigration and immigrants, the book can seem a cautionary tale of what can happen when governments cede to their worst elements – the FBI’s J..."
"...Sheffield reported Burpo's allegations to his chain of command, who stuck him on administrative leave and brought in a Special Investigations Unit to get in touch with CLEAT's president, Todd Harrison. The SIU tabbed the Travis County District Attorney's Office and had the FBI's cybercrimes unit take a look, as well..."
"...However, the Republican chair of the House Committee on Homeland Security appeared on Fox News this week to restate his opposition to accepting Syrian refugees. Saying he had been privately briefed by the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI that they could not provide proper background checks on those seeking refugee status, McCaul said, "I cannot support a program that could potentially bring jihadists into the United States."..."
"...Magistrate Judge Mark Lane indicates that Clark was formally charged with capital murder by a Bastrop District Court on July 21. He also been charged with unlawfully fleeing the country to avoid prosecution, according to FBI Special Agent Justin Noble...."
"...Dear Editor, I am a 14-year veteran of Yellow Cab and welcome fair competition because it makes me smarter, stronger, and better ["Crash Course," News, Aug. 7]. To be a cab driver I must: 1) Pass a 10-year criminal background check (fingerprint) through the DPS and FBI databases..."
"...• Arlington Shooting: The FBI has been called in to investigate the Friday morning shooting death of Christian Taylor, a 19-year-old black student and football player at Angelo State University, who allegedly attempted to flee police officers responding to an Arlington car dealership because of reports of a suspected burglary. Arlington Police reported they were called to a Buick GMC dealership after 1am on Friday shortly after a Jeep crashed through the store’s front window..."

"...The DPS officer who stopped Bland has been placed on administrative leave for possibly violating policy and procedure in his arrest of Bland. Before Mathis’ announcement on Monday, the FBI and the Texas Rangers had already begun investigating Bland’s death...."
"...Berkowitz later told the FBI: Son of Sam, the dog, orders ... just a bullshit story...."
"...Put policies into place and assist other agencies. You'd work with ICE like you'd work with the FBI, the police departments..."
"...This task force, established in 2004 and coordinated by law enforcement agencies in and around Austin, aims to train area law enforcement in identifying victims of human trafficking, and to increase the successful prosecution of human traffickers. The task force is composed of 21 entities representing various federal, state, and local interests, including the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, Texas Office of the Attorney General, Texas Department of Public Safety, Austin Police Department, Hays County Sheriff's Office, San Marcos Police Department, and more...."
"...FBI agents later found information indicating that Good (who facilitated the sale) and Bower had engaged in a series of phone calls to set up the sale. When the agents showed up at Bower’s home to question him, he denied being at the hangar, but a search uncovered pieces of the airplane in Bower's garage..."
"..."We've been in contact with our information sources, as we've always been. We've done a fairly good job over the last ten years of making sure that this type of thing doesn't happen in Austin – using our human sources, FBI, and the [Austin Regional Intelligence Center]."..."
"...Office on Drugs and Crime, Honduras' homicide rate in 2012 was 90.4 per 100,000, El Salvador's was 41.2, and Guatemala's was 39.9. According to the FBI's Uniform Crime Report, the homicide rate in the U.S..."
"...It was a critical success even then, though the strong arm of William Randolph Hearst, who was unhappy with the obvious resemblance, sucker-punched distribution; it took a while before Citizen Kane started being bandied about as the greatest movie ever made. Welles lost his right to edit the director's cut at home studio RKO and, after toying with going into politics (his FBI file put a stop to that), the "boy wonder" embodiment of the American Dream eventually went into semi-exile in Europe – a better fit for him, perhaps, both artistically and for finding willing financiers..."
"...Neither Lawrence, who lost his uncle, also in law enforcement, to lead poisoning from a bullet, nor Barber and Christopherson, whose grandfather was in the FBI, seek to cast blame on the individual officers so much as on the “institutional problems,” as Christopherson puts it, that lead to these situations. Lawrence says he wants to get “back to the ideal of what law enforcement was meant to be,” and to better protect the lives of officers, as well as civilians...."
"...Though his reputation remains that of a government-antagonizing Native American activist – having occupied Alcatraz Island, burned flags on the FBI Headquarters steps, and served as chairman for the American Indian Movement – John Trudell no longer wears the political activist jacket...."
"...Late last year, the FBI laid out a complicated case against Ulbricht, who they alleged had designed and run one of the world's biggest online black markets (see "Feds Take Wind out of Dread Pirate Robert's Sails," Oct. 11, 2013)..."
"...Naz & Maalik Director/Screenwriter: Jay Dockendorf Two closeted Muslim teens have their Friday afternoon ruined by FBI surveillance when their secretive behavior and small-time scheming start to look like fledgling steps toward violent radicalism. Cast: Curtiss Cook Jr., Kerwin Johnson Jr., Annie Grier, Anderson Footman, Bradley Custer, Ashleigh Awusie (World Premiere)..."
"...Now Gov. Greg Abbott has assembled a "strike force" to review how the contract was awarded, the FBI has mounted its own investigation, and Janek's former chamber mate, Sen..."
"...Brown, who has already spent two years in prison, faces up to another eight-and-a-half years on charges related to the hacking of the Austin-based private intelligence firm Stratfor, which had thousands of emails stolen and publicly released, including some that recounted information received from state surveillance of Occupy Austin protesters. Brown was reportedly not directly involved in the Stratfor hack, but pled guilty earlier this year to being an accessory after the fact, to attempting to hide evidence, and to making threats against an investigating FBI agent and his family..."
"...Now, I know as confessions go, that doesn't exactly rank up there with "I was a Communist for the FBI," but I disclose it here as another way of saying, "Once upon a time, I believed in poetry" – not "believed" in the sense of holding poetry to be a venerable art form, rich in tradition and deserving of our study, no, "believed" in the sense of embracing poetry as a faith, as a channel to something deep in my being, deep in life, deep in the cosmos. Poetry struck a chord so powerfully in me that I felt impelled to communicate my own feelings through it and did so without any self-consciousness or embarrassment..."
"...It seems having four children was a good cover. The FBI peeked, questioned, but did not arrest..."
"...Under S-Comm, fingerprints of those arrested (on charges of Class B misdemeanors or above) are shared with the Department of Public Safety, which shares them with the FBI and then with ICE, and holds the prisoners for up to 48 hours to facilitate deportations of the undocumented. Some 5,000 Travis County residents – at a rate of 19 people a week – have been deported since 2009, when Hamilton initiated his agency's S-Comm participation...."
"...AFTER ALLEGEDLY OPENING fire on FBI agents and other officers with the Central Texas Violent Crimes Task Force, who'd approached his vehicle in an attempt to issue an arrest warrant, Tyler Caraway was shot and killed by police officers in North Austin Monday evening. Caraway, 24, was wanted in connection with a bank robbery...."
