How the ‘Tom Brady’ of Police Chiefs Fumbled in Miami

  How the ‘Tom Brady’ of Police Chiefs Fumbled in Miami When Art Acevedo was appointed the Miami Police Department chief in April, he was praised as a reformer and the “Tom Brady” and “Michael Jordan” of police chiefs by the city’s mayor. But just six months into his tenure, Acevedo’s failure to quickly learn the ropes of Miami’s notoriously nasty city politics—and his decision to air them out in a widely circulated memo last month—may cost him his job, city officials and insiders close to the matter told The Daily Beast. “It’s just a ticking clock at this point,” one city official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told The Daily Beast.

Alex Murdaugh was booked into a South Carolina detention facility on Saturday following his Thursday arrest in Florida.

The disgraced South Carolina attorney was taken into custody following his release from a drug rehabilitation facility in Orlando. He arrived Saturday at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center in Richland, South Carolina, near Columbia, after waiving an extradition hearing in Florida, according to reports.

Murdaugh’s attorney, Dick Harpootlian, had said Friday that Murdaugh intended to return to South Carolina voluntarily, after acknowledging that he will likely face prison time.

FBI using Brian Laundrie’s father for a more targeted search, former agent says

  FBI using Brian Laundrie’s father for a more targeted search, former agent says Chris Laundrie accompanied law enforcement into the Carlton Reserve for the first time this week to look for his son, which former FBI special agent Ken Gray said reflects the bureau's strategy to base their search on specific targeted intelligence. Gray was a member of the New Haven FBI SWAT team when he briefly helped search for Olympic Park bomber Eric Rudolph in the Appalachian Mountains in the late 1990s. "SWAT teams came in, went out on the Appalachian trail area there in North Carolina, did a lot of searching through that area, but continued to come up empty-handed," Gray told Fox News Friday.

According to warrants made public Saturday, Murdaugh was charged with two counts of obtaining property by false pretenses in connection with the estate of Gloria Satterfield, a former housekeeper who worked at Murdaugh’s home until her death in 2018, Greenville, South Carolina-based FOX Carolina reported.


Satterfield fell at the home, striking her head, on Feb. 2, 2018, and then died 24 days later, the station reported.

Authorities say Murdaugh then worked with Satterfield family members to put together a lawsuit against himself that would allow the survivors to collect an insurance payment, then convinced the Satterfield family to hire lawyer Cory Fleming to represent them, FOX Carolina reported.

North Carolina Lt. Gov. who called transgenderism 'filth' 'will not back down' amid calls for resignation

  North Carolina Lt. Gov. who called transgenderism 'filth' 'will not back down' amid calls for resignation Republican North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson said he “will not back back down” amid Democratic calls for his resignation after he said “trangenderism” and homosexuality should not be taught to children, referring to it as “filth.”"Let me tell you plainly right here and right now: I will not back down," Robinson said in a video posted to Facebook on Saturday. "I will not be silenced and I will not be bullied into submission. I will continue to fight for the rights of our children to receive an education that is free from sexual concepts that do not belong in the classroom.

Fleming later worked out a deal to collect $505,000 but Satterfield’s survivors were never told about the money, the warrants against Murdaugh state, according to FOX Carolina.

The warrants further allege that Murdaugh opened a bank account with the name "Forge" and instructed Fleming to send money, in the amount of $403,000, to that account instead of to Satterfield’s family, the report said.

The alleged actions by Murdaugh and Fleming denied Satterfield’s survivors of money that was owed to them, the warrants state, according to FOX Carolina.

A lawsuit filed by the late housekeeper’s sons claims Murdaugh took a total of more than $4 million that they believe belongs to them.

Separately, Murdaugh has claimed innocence in the unsolved shooting deaths of his wife and son, and is alleged to have participated in a scheme to have himself fatally shot so that his surviving son could allegedly collect an insurance payment, authorities have said.

Murdaugh appeared in a South Carolina courtroom in September regarding the alleged shooting plot against himself, prior to his admission into the Florida rehab facility.

This is one bar tab Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) may regret not paying. Faced with an onslaught of accusations that he engaged in underage sex trafficking—and bracing for criminal charges—Gaetz has allowed his license to practice law in his home state of Florida to lapse. As of Wednesday, Gaetz had not paid the fees he owes to The Florida Bar, which regulates lawyers there, prompting the organization to deem him “delinquent” and “not eligible to practice law in Florida.”The Bar’s public directory, which only lists one Matthew Louis Gaetz II, previously showed him in good standing as of July, according to the Internet Archive.
