The Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office has charged a San Jose police officer with using his private security company to commit insurance fraud, tax evasion, wage theft, and about $18 million in money laundering. Robert Foster, 47, the Morgan Hill owner of Atlas Private Security, self-surrendered on Thursday and will be arraigned on Nov. 30 at the Hall of Justice in San Jose on felony charges. His San Jose-based company offers security guards and polygraph experts and contracts with Bay Alarm, Applebee’s, and the Fremont Unified School District, as some examples of clients. Foster and his accomplices, including his wife, Mikaila Foster, allegedly used his position as an active-duty

Comments:

Every criminal case this officer has had involvement with will get likely dismissed, and every lawsuit he's ever testified in will have grounds for a rehearing.

No party affiliation mentioned. That must mean this darling is a demonrat. I bet some judge who got a piece of the action will dismiss the whole case.

Article was straightforward and informative. Until. The chilling last paragraph. We must have only approved talk on a PRIVATE Facebook page. If you don’t think we’re at the gates, you’re not paying attention.

This sort of behavior is more common in security companies than most people realize. The workers who subcontract are not exactly victims as they are not taxed and can sometimes take home more money than full time employees, often in cash that is reclassified as expenses. Funny you should mention that, #6, I worked for one of those companies in Kuwait who handled four or five US Military bases and you are correct, they were corrupt to the bone, racist and mistreated everybody. They were incorporated in some third world location and didn't have to report anything to anybody. I read about subsequent lawsuits after leaving them.

TikTok, an app known for quirky, short videos, is facing political heat because of its ties to China. US President Donald Trump has ramped up his campaign against the short-form video app. On Friday, the president was reportedly considering an order that would force TikTok's Chinese parent company to divest its US operations. Microsoft is reportedly interested in buying the app, according to The New York Times. (Microsoft declined to comment.) Hours after those reports, Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One that he'd prefer to ban the app, an idea his administration floated earlier this month. "We're banning them from the United States," the president said

A U.S. judge on Friday denied Oregon’s request to restrict federal agents’ actions when they arrest people during chaotic protests that have roiled Portland and pitted local officials against the Trump administration. Federal agents deployed by President Donald Trump to tamp down the unrest have arrested dozens during nightly demonstrations against racial injustice that often turn violent. Democratic leaders in Oregon say federal intervention has worsened the two-month crisis, and the state attorney general sued to allege that some people had been whisked off the streets in unmarked vehicles.

The California Department of Transportation has agreed to pay $2 million for destroying belongings during sweeps of homeless encampments from 2014 to 2019. The class-action lawsuit, filed in 2016 on behalf of unhoused Californians, claims that belongings, including, food, clothing, and medical supplies, were destroyed during the sweeps enacted by Caltrans. The Alameda County Superior Court approved the settlement last week. Under the ruling, Caltrans is required to set up a $1.3 million fund to compensate people for their loss of property and give $700,000 to the nonprofit organization Homeless Action Center to provide housing and benefits services for the unhoused.

Well, it may be time to deploy the military to Seattle after all because what local lawmakers are doing is nothing short of allowing the city to be engulfed in violence and anarchy. They’re moving to abolish the police. It’s not defunding. It’s a total dissolution. Non-profit programs and “community-led activities” will replace policing. Why? Well, according to the resolution, the Seattle Police Department perpetuates racism and violence. Oh, yes, and it’s a vehicle of white supremacy. It's typical 'woke' nonsense, and it's a cancer that's killing America.

Admiration for George W. Bush doesn’t win you much praise in today’s Republican Party, but I don’t care. On Thursday former President George W. Bush attended and delivered a speech at the late Congressman John Lewis’s funeral. George W. Bush had every reason not to attend Lewis’s funeral, let alone eulogize him. Lewis may have been a famed civil rights leader, but he was also a bitter partisan Democrat congressman, who boycotted both of Bush’s inaugurations. Bush barely mentioned the political division between him and Lewis. “John and I had our disagreements of course,” Bush said.
