Heavily armed 'Oath Keepers' inject disquieting element in Ferguson

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/12/2015 - 03:51

Members of the Oath Keepers walk with their personal weapons on the street during protests in Ferguson, MissouriBy Scott Malone FERGUSON, Mo. (Reuters) - Four white men carrying military-style rifles and sidearms added a disquieting element to riot-torn Ferguson, Missouri, when they began patrolling the streets before dawn on Tuesday, which police quickly labeled "inflammatory." The men said they were part of a group called "Oath Keepers," which describes itself as a non-partisan association of current and former U.S. soldiers, police and first responders who aim to protect the U.S. Constitution. The men attracted immediate attention in the mostly black neighborhood, which exploded into violence on Sunday night as protesters marked the one-year anniversary of the killing of an unarmed black teen by police. The Southern Poverty Law Center, a non-profit civil rights organization, has described the "Oath Keepers" as a "fiercely anti-government, militaristic group," and St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar condemned their appearance in Ferguson.

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/12/2015 - 03:03
Three employees of the California Department of Motor Vehicles have been indicted for accepting bribes to grant commercial driving licenses, and the owners of three trucking schools indicted for offering the bribes, federal officials said on Tuesday. The scheme involved payments of up to $5,000 to middlemen who then passed money to DMV employees to grant licenses to drivers who had not taken or passed the tests required to drive big-rig commercial trucks, according to documents released by the Benjamin Wagner, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of California. "The brokers use the individual's money to bribe DMV employees to circumvent or falsely enter informatino into the DMV computer systems," FBI investigators said in a criminal complaint filed in federal court in Sacramento.
