Child Porn Probe Leads To FBI Headquarters
Target claims inquiry is just a “misunderstanding”

JANUARY 5 2011--The government’s pursuit of suspects trafficking in child pornography recently led federal agents to a familiar address--the FBI’s Washington, D.C. headquarters, where a bureau official is the subject of an ongoing criminal probe, The Smoking Gun has learned.

The investigation by the Department of Justice’s inspector general is focusing on FBI employee Joseph Bonsuk’s receipt of nearly 80 illicit images that were e-mailed to him by an Illinois sex offender whose rap sheet includes felony convictions for bank robbery and solicitation of a minor.

Sisters win sex lawsuit vs. dad $2.3 million given for years of abuse
By Howard Prankratz
Denver Post Legal Affairs Writer

Two daughters of former state and federal law enforcement official Edward Rodgers were awarded $2.319,400 yesterday, after a Denver judge and jury found that the women suffered years of abuse at the hands of their father.

The award to Sharon Simone, 45, and Susan Hammond, 44, followed testimony of Rodgers’ four daughters in person or through depositions, describing repeated physical abuse and sexual assaults by their father from 1944 through 1965.

Rodgers, 72, who became a child abuse expert after retiring from the FBI and joining the colorado Springs DA’s office, failed to appear for the trial. But in a deposition taken in March, Rodgers denied ever hitting or sexually abusing his children.

Re: “Ford Case Opens With Cataloguing of Surveillance Recordings

The FBI FRUHMENSCHEN program is one of the least known of the many illegal FBI black ops programs. FRUHMENSCHEN is a german word that means ape man. This program was created by FBI agents during the 1940's to target black elected officials in sting operations without cause because the FBI feels blacks are incapable of governing. The National Council of Churches of Christ issued a resolution condeming this program during the late 1980's. Dr Mary Sawyer , professor of Religious studies at Iowa State University wrote two books about this program including HARRASSMENT OF BLACK ELECTED OFFICIALS TEN YEARS LATER 1987. Former FBI agent Dr Tyronne Powers documents this program in his book EYES TO MY SOUL. Massachusetts filmaker Curtis Henderson of Jamaica Plain documented this program in his 1987 film ALABAMA SUMMER. FBI informant attorney Hirsch Freidman blew the whistle on this program. One offshoot of this program was the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King by FBI agents as documented in two books by King family attorney William Pepper. The books are ACT OF STATE and his earlier book called ORDERS TO KILL. Anyone analyzing the Ford trial must first look at the history of the FBI FRUHMENSCHEN program funded with American tax dollars Eyes to My Soul: The Rise or Decline of A Black FBI Agent by Tyrone Powers " One of the most readable and important of [recent African American autobiographies]....Powers is a compelling writer." William Jelani Cobb - Washington City Paper " The significance of this literary masterpiece has compelled me to violate my most sacred rule: never expose your battle plan to the enemy...with this work of art by Mr. Powers, my collection is now complete." James Wm. Morrison, Esq., Civil Rights Attorney About Eyes to My Soul Former FBI Special Agent Tyrone Powers, a veteran of the Maryland State Police, spent nine years as an FBI agent, with posting in Cincinnati and Detroit. He resigned in August 1994. The picture of the country's top law enforcement agency that emerges from Powers' eloquent prose reveals an organization beset by the same problems of racism that plague the rest of American society. Powers describes sheet -clad students at the FBI Academy impersonating Ku Klux Klansmen. He reports on FBI agents in Detroit raising funds for white Detroit policemen charged with (and later convicted of ) second degree murder in the death of Black motorist Malice Green. White agents according to Powers' narrative, urinated on photographs of President Bill Clinton and Vice-President Al Gore. Powers provides eyewitness evidence of the agency's extra- legal harassment of African American Mayors Coleman Young (Detroit) , Marion Berry ( Washington, DC) and Harold Washington (Chicago). Former Special Agent Powers grew up in inner city Baltimore and his autobiographical recollections combine the sociologist's insight with the novelist's flair for storytelling. The problems of the inner city are presented in their unvarnished starkness. Contents: Introduction Prologue 1. Valley of Death 2.God Knows 3.Family 4.
