Report: Jesse Jackson Jr might have helped the feds take down Blago
Curiouser and curiouser. ABC Chicago claims he’s been working with investigators since last summer on Blago’s attempt to trade state funding for an airport Jackson was championing in exchange for control of the airport’s board. That doesn’t prove JJJ wasn’t involved in the pay-to-play scheme for the Senate seat, but it does mean he’d have to have been an even bigger moron than Blagojevich to try something dirty knowing that Fitzgerald was closing in. Which, needless to say, is unlikely. Also needless to say, the feds are hanging him out to dry by not confirming his assistance. His reputation’s taken enough of a hit that he’s probably out of the running for Obama’s seat unless they step up and rehabilitate him. What’s the hold up if Blagojevich has been arrested?
ICE has 22 detention facilities all over the country. When illegal immigrants are caught, they're flown to one of three hubs in Texas, Arizona or Louisiana. From there, ICE Air has daily flights to Central American countries such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, and also frequent flights to Nicaragua, Mexico, Ecuador, Colombia and the Caribbean. When it gets enough immigrants to fill a plane, it also flies to Asia, eastern Europe and Africa. ICE Air leases nine planes, and sometimes it also charters commercial jets. It flies six days a week.
HOLLYWOOD, Florida (CNN) -- A deceased drifter long suspected in the abduction and murder of Adam Walsh committed the crime that put missing children on the national agenda, police said Tuesday.
"If Ottis Toole was alive today, he would be arrested for the abduction and murder of Adam Walsh on July 27, 1981," Hollywood Police Chief Chad Wagner said at an afternoon news conference announcing the end of the 27-year investigation.
The chief apologized to the boy's parents, John and Reve Walsh, for what he called "lapses" in the initial investigation. He added that there was no "magic" piece of evidence that led investigators to officially name a suspect now.
"This case could have been closed, and should have been closed years ago," Wagner said. When he took over last year as police, Wagner vowed to close the Walsh case. He reviewed the entire case file and assigned a retired detective, Joe Matthews, to conduct an independent review.
