ATF 'Fast and Furious' whistle-blower fired in Denny's parking lot (VIDEO)

ATF 'Fast and Furious' whistle-blower fired in Denny's parking lot (VIDEO) | READ WHAT I READ | Scoop.it

Via Fox News:

 

A well-known whistle-blower in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives confirmed to FoxNews.com that he was fired this week, and he claims his complaints about Operation Fast and Furious played a role in his dismissal.

 

Vince Cefalu said he was served his termination papers Tuesday in a Denny's parking lot in South Lake Tahoe, Calif. But he doesn't plan to go quietly.

 

Vince Cefalu said he was served his termination papers Tuesday in a Denny's parking lot in South Lake Tahoe, Calif. But he doesn't plan to go quietly.


"It will be challenged," he said.


Cefalu, who's served as an ATF special agent for 25 years, was first notified of the plan to fire him more than a year ago but had been on administrative leave until now. He said officials told him he was being canned for "lack of candor," in reference to a handful of statements he made in testimony in a separate court case.


However, Cefalu has been outspoken against ATF practices for years and told FoxNews.com that his whistle-blowing on Fast and Furious "was the final straw..."

Boynton Beach, Florida cop downloaded 400 porn images on his work laptop while on duty, blamed son | READ WHAT I READ | Scoop.it

Via Palm Beach Post:

 

BOYNTON BEACH — Police Sgt. Frank Ranzie’s department laptop contained more than 400 images of pornography, which was downloaded while he was on duty, and showed 23 websites were visited a total of 5,733 times, but none of the people in the images were underage, the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office said.

 

“It has been determined that there were no child pornographic images on Ranzie’s hard drive and thus no crime has occurred,” state attorney’s detective Robert Flechaus said in a “closeout memo” dated Thursday.

 

It did say the 48-year-old road patrol sergeant, who’s been with the department since 1988, first blamed his son, but later admitted to a supervisor he was the one who browsed the adult sites, although he insisted he looked at no child pornography.

 

Ranzie continues to be the subject of internal affairs investigation and could be disciplined for misusing the department laptop.

 

A police technician later told internal affairs investigators that Ranzie asked the man to “wipe out his (Ranzie’s) hard drive because his son had possibly went (sic) on his computer and browsed pornographic websites and possibly downloaded some pornography,” the memo said.


It said the technician “thought this to be suspicious” and brought it to Internal Affairs.


Investigators provided 20 “thumbnail” images of women who appeared to be under 18, as well as a listing of the dates and times pornographic websides were accessed; times when Ranzie was on duty...
