  • We don’t need 20 million armed ‘citizen marshals’; Need a government willing to identify them

    Solution? More like recipe for disaster. Earlier today, you probably saw Dan’s piece in which he proposes that “the solution” is to vet and raise a force of “20 million trained, armed, citizen marshals.” Obviously, it’s easy to understand the impulse behind the suggestion. We’re all eager to find a solution to the terrorism and mass shootings, as well as the daily violence that plagues America’s Democrat-controlled urban centers. But Dan’s wrong. This is exactly what we don’t need. It’s as bad an idea now as it was back in 2008 - only then it was Barack Obama trotting it...

    No, left, you're not getting gun control. Instead, we offer crime control via good guys (and girls) with guns Every time a crime is committed with a gun - especially when the crime in question happens to capture the media’s attention - the left wants to know, “When will enough be enough?” That is to say: When will you conservatives finally stop resisting and support gun control? The New York Times over the weekend even basked in its own self-importance by publishing a pro-gun control editorial on its front page. So when will enough be enough such that we will...

    If federal agents storm Brown's property, he and his supporters will come out shooting. Brown said yesterday that if those agents kill him or his wife, Elaine, his supporters will systematically find and kill Plainfield Police Chief Gordon Gillens, Sullivan County Sheriff Michael Prozzo and others Brown says are sworn to protect him. "Why do you think we know where they live?" he said. Brown predicts the people's war against corruption will begin within the next 18 months. He has spent the last 15 years doing research, trying to identify the culprits of that corruption. "I'm still conducting my investigation,"...

    Marshals kept off plane at Reagan By Audrey Hudson THE WASHINGTON TIMES November 20, 2006 A team of federal air marshals was prevented from protecting a recent flight from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport because a gate agent erroneously said they did not have the correct paperwork, say marshals familiar with the incident. Officials with Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) were called in to remove the marshals from US Airways Flight 3464 departing Nov. 8 for Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, Conn. "Right now we know, obviously, that federal air marshals were denied boarding," said Federal Air Marshal Service...

    Marshals Say They Must File One Surveillance Detection Report, Or SDR, Per Month DENVER -- You could be on a secret government database or watch list for simply taking a picture on an airplane. Some federal air marshals say they're reporting your actions to meet a quota, even though some top officials deny it. The air marshals, whose identities are being concealed, told 7NEWS that they're required to submit at least one report a month. If they don't, there's no raise, no bonus, no awards and no special assignments. "Innocent passengers are being entered into an international intelligence database as...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Under criticism over inadequate security for federal judges, the director of the U.S. Marshals Service announced his resignation Friday. Benigno Reyna has led the Marshals Service, which is responsible for protecting judges and rounding up fugitives, since October 2001. His resignation is effective July 31, Marshals Service spokesman Don Hines said. Hines said Reyna, previously police chief in Brownsville, Texas, decided it was time to go back home. But federal judges have been unusually vocal in criticizing the Marshals Service following the Feb. 28 fatal shootings of the husband and mother of U.S. District Judge Joan...

    Two police officers testified yesterday that 20-year-old Navy Seaman Ryan T. Stowers was belligerent toward authorities several times before he was killed by a deputy U.S. Marshal in Rockville last fall. A detective from California told a Montgomery County jury that Seaman Stowers, of Redding, Calif., challenged him to a fight and shouted obscenities at him in June 2003. An officer from Chestertown, Md., said he had a run-in with the sailor about a month before the sailor was killed.

    Flight reports by the Federal Air Marshal Service show that federal agents were on less than 10 percent of the nation's flights in December, a number several air marshals say was inflated to make it appear to Congress that commercial air travel is better protected than it is. "The numbers reported to headquarters come back higher than originally reported and are sometimes upwards of double the number of what is actually flown," an air marshal said. "Everyone knows they are padding the numbers."

    Marshals Find Convict Freed by Mistake Friday January 07, 2005 7:09am Washington (AP) - U.S. Marshals say they've captured the man who was mistakenly set free from the D.C. jail last week. Forty-year-old Frank Vargo was convicted in November of robbing and stabbing a cabdriver in Southwest Washington. Vargo, who has used many aliases, was tracked to a hotel in Miami Beach. Authorities tell The Washington Post that Vargo was taken into custody by members of the Capitol Area Regional Fugitive Task Force, who traveled to Florida after learning Vargo was there.

    WASHINGTON, July 15 Beards are out. So are jeans and athletic shoes. Suit coats are in, even on the steamiest summer days. That dress code, imposed by the Department of Homeland Security, makes federal air marshals uneasy and not just because casual clothes are more comfortable in cramped airline seats. The marshals fear that their appearance makes it easier for terrorists to identify them, according to a professional group representing more than 1,300 air marshals. "If a 12-year-old can pick them out, a trained terrorist has no problem picking them out," said John D. Amat, a spokesman...
