TIMOTHY A. CLARY/GettyThree New York City Police officers, including an “unabashedly racist” cop who retired last year, were arrested on Tuesday over a smorgasbord of allegedly corrupt schemes, from stealing car crash victims’ info to funneling damaged cars to a tow trucking business.Officers Heather Busch, 34, and Robert Hassett, 36, were indicted on five counts of using interstate facilities to commit bribery and two counts of conspiracy to violate the Travel Act after allegedly participating in the bribery scheme, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York said.Robert Smith, a 44-year-old who allegedly started the scheme in 2016, was hit with the same charges, plus additional charges of attempting to transport at least one kilogram of heroin, and possessing a firearm during the commission of that crime.Prosecutors allege that, during his tenure as a cop, Smith participated in several criminal schemes, including “robberies and shakedowns...of individuals and businesses for bribe payments.”Wife: I ‘Snapped’ and Killed Estranged Hubby’s New Girlfriend After She Hit Me“Bro, I robbed everyone,” Smith allegedly said in one text message to another person, according to a detention memo obtained by The Daily Beast. In another text after his retirement in March 2020, Smith allegedly told an associate he “would brandish his firearm in front of Black individuals to terrorize them,” prosecutors said.“Bro I point my gun out the window now at [N-word] and watch their reaction and drive way. Hilarious,” he allegedly wrote.According to the Civilian Complaint Review Board records, 31 complaints dating back to 2002 were filed against Smith while he was an officer. Only a 2011 complaint about offensive language about gender was ever substantiated against him.“Behavior like the type alleged today is a disgrace. It erodes public trust in law enforcement and tarnishes the reputations of the many thousands of officers who honorably serve our communities on a daily basis,” FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge William Sweeney said in a Tuesday statement. “Nobody is above the law, and we will not tolerate illegal behavior, especially among the ranks of sworn law enforcement officers.”Prosecutors allege that from September 2016, Smith and Hassett would respond to car crashes and make sure the wreckage went to a specific automobile repair business in exchange for kickbacks.The scheme violated the NYPD’s Directed Accident Response Program, which requires officers to choose from a variety of licensed tow trucking companies in the area of a crash to encourage equal financial opportunity. In exchange, the cops got “thousands of dollars in cash bribes” from an unnamed individual.It’s unclear how much Smith and Hassett made in total but the indictment says Smith made $4,000 just by steering four cars to the specific tow company between Nov. 2019 and Jan. 2020. Before Smith retired in 2020, he handed the reins to Hassett, prosecutors said, adding that they discussed recruiting Busch, who agreed to join in March.Busch steered at least six damaged cars to the towing business and received $5,000 in bribes, the indictment states.Just before retiring, however, Smith and Hassett began to steal names and information on crash victims from NYPD databases for the unnamed person. Prosecutors allege they knew the person was selling the information to a physical therapy business and personal injury lawyers to obtain customers.Over three months, the pair stole the information of more than 100 crash victims of recent automobile accidents” in exchange for $7,000, the indictment states.Prosecutors detailed other alleged schemes Smith participated in after leaving the force. In January 2020, Smith expressed interest to the same unnamed individual in transporting “illegal narcotics in exchange for payment,” the indictment says. Smith even said he “could carry a firearm and his retired NYPD identification while he was transporting the drugs,” prosecutors state.“In July 2020, Smith met with an individual in Brooklyn and accepted a bag containing what Smith understood to be a kilogram of heroin. Smith then transported the bag to a location in Queens where he delivered it to another individual,” prosecutors said. “Smith received a payment of approximately $1,200 in cash for his participation in the scheme.”All three, who were officers for the 105th Precinct in Queens, are expected in Brooklyn federal court Tuesday afternoon. Prosecutors are asking for a significant bond for Busch and Hassett.In the detection memo arguing for Smith to be “permanently detained pending trial,” prosecutors argued he is a clear danger to the community and was a “corrupt NYPD officer” who once wrote to a colleague: “I want to see mass nypd suicide and deaths. Those fake bitches.”The memo says that Smith had threatened to harm people if “he came to believe they were assisting federal law enforcement authorities,” including one instance where he said he would “get” the unnamed person involved in the schemes if he learned he was “wearing a wire.”Prosecutors noted that Smith referred to himself in a text message as “one of the most corrupt cops in the 105,” referring to the 105th Precinct. In another message to a fellow NYPD officer, Smith described himself as a “perp that got away,” the memo states.Black Bike Riders: ‘Central Park Karen’ Falsely Accused Us of ‘Beating’ HerSmith also displayed “unabashedly racist and hate-filled language in his communications” obtained by federal authorities, the detention memo states. The messages had “numerous references to the Ku Klux Klan, including one—just after his retirement—in which he wrote, ‘Now the real [S]mith will shine. I even shaved my head. Klan.’”Busch’s attorney did not immediately respond to The Daily Beast’s request for comment. Lawyers for Smith and Hassett declined to provide a statement.An NYPD spokesperson confirmed to The Daily Beast on Tuesday that Hassett and Busch have been “suspended without pay.” The spokesperson referred to a statement by Commissioner Dermot F. Shea that said the department has “zero tolerance” for “corruption of any kind.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip? Send it to The Daily Beast hereGet our top stories in your inbox every day.

American tennis player Reilly Opelka is back to winning matches after dealing with a bout of COVID-19 that he said kept him off the court entirely for more than two weeks and prevented him from practicing the way he usually does for nearly a month. “It felt like a rough flu,” Opelka said in a telephone interview Tuesday from Rome, where he beat Lorenzo Musetti of Italy 6-4, 6-4 to reach the round of 16 at the clay-court Italian Open. “Definitely put me out completely for five days. And then I stayed home for another 10 or 11 days, at least.” The 47th-ranked Opelka has back-to-back victories — he beat Richard Gasquet 6-1, 7-5 in his opener — after arriving in Italy on a six-match losing streak that included a first-round exit at the Miami Open in March. It was after that tournament that he got sick; he described himself as “pretty symptomatic” for five days. “Took about three or four weeks for me to feel like my energy was normal and to be able to train and practice four hours a day,” said Opelka, a 23-year-old who is based in Florida. “Now? Now I would say that I’m fully recovered. There’s some rust and just some soreness here and there, because I missed out on (so much) work. But my body is feeling pretty good at the moment.” Good enough to produce 41 aces in his past two matches, with 23 against Musetti. “I’ve served well. I’ve hit my forehand really well. And, honestly, I’m moving really well. So those three things are really working for me right now,” the 6-foot-11 Opelka said. “I’ve put a lot of work in after a rough start to the year.” Taylor Fritz, an American ranked 31st, is friends with Opelka and shares a physiotherapist with him. “I heard he was feeling a bit rough,” Fritz said Tuesday after his rain-interrupted 6-3, 7-6 (5) loss to No. 1 Novak Djokovic in Italy. “I probably FaceTimed Reilly every other day to just ask him how he was doing and talk to him.” Next up for Opelka at a tournament many players use to prepare for the French Open, which begins May 30, will be either second-ranked Daniil Medvedev or No. 27 Aslan Karatsev. Medvedev is a two-time Grand Slam finalist, including at the Australian Open this year, and Karatsev began this year outside the Top 100 before his surprising run to the semifinals at Melbourne Park as a qualifier. “Pretty rare that a guy who, all of a sudden, at age 27, kind of had his best year and kind of comes out and physically is one of the strongest tennis players I’ve ever seen,” Opelka said about Karatsev. “His body is like no other tennis player’s build. His physique is nothing I’ve ever seen before.” ___ More AP Tennis: https://apnews.com/hub/tennis and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Howard Fendrich, The Associated Press
NEW YORK (AP) — The Major League Baseball Players Association increased its liquid assets by about $19 million to $178.5 million ahead of collective bargaining that could lead to a spring training lockout next year. The union had $178.5 million in cash, U.S. Treasury securities and investments on Dec. 31, according to a financial disclosure form filed with the U.S. Department of Labor. That was up from $159.5 million at the end of 2019, $102.4 million at the end of 2018 and $80.1 million at the end of 2017. According to details in the filing, the union had $22.4 million in cash, $94.1 million in Treasury securities and $62 million investments with entities such as the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp., known as Freddie Mac; the Federal National Mortgage Association, known as Fannie Mae; Federal Home Loan Banks; and Federal Farm Credit Bank. The union usually prepares for bargaining by withholding licensing money due to players and keeping it available to disburse during or after a stoppage. Baseball underwent eight work stoppages from 1972-95 but has not had one since. The current labor contract expires Dec. 1. Union head Tony Clark earned a $2.25 million base salary, unchanged from 2019, according to the disclosure form. Bruce Meyer earned $1,005,000 as senior director of collective bargaining and legal, a raise of $5,000 from 2019. ___ More AP MLB: https://apnews.com/MLB and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Ronald Blum, The Associated Press
Here’s how to sort through employers whose commitment to these social justice causes are authentic or simply performative.
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Harlin Hale's decision, following a trial over the legitimacy of the NRA's January bankruptcy filing, means the group will remain incorporated in New York. Letitia James, New York's attorney general, had last August filed a lawsuit seeking the dissolution of the NRA, which she accused of corruption and misspending. "The question the court is faced with is whether the existential threat facing the NRA is the type of threat that the Bankruptcy Code is meant to protect against," Hale wrote.
(Bloomberg) -- It turns out a pandemic can do wonders for the economics of beef, and meat companies like Tyson Foods Inc. are reaping the benefits.Currently, there’s plenty of cattle in the U.S. Last year Covid-19 caused meat plants to shut down, and farmers had nowhere to send animals. Ranchers simply left their herds to graze on pasture and multiply.Now add high beef prices to that. Pandemic restrictions are easing, restaurants are reopening, and the meat is in high demand. So far Americans have been willing to pay up for more expensive steaks and burgers.All of that is good news for America’s biggest meat company, who’s in a sweet spot between the cheap cattle and pricey beef. Tyson Foods Inc. on Monday reported record margins of 11% for the meat in its second quarter, up from 3.1% last year. The company’s shares have risen 23% this year, compared with 11% for the S&P 500 Index.Beef could remain a moneymaker for some time. Plants are still operating under capacity because of labor shortages, so ample supplies of cattle will persist into 2022, the company said.“Beef is so strong right now,” JPMorgan Chase & Co. analysts Ken Goldman and Anoori Naughton said in a note. “The spread between beef and cattle remains extremely high.”The favorable backdrop in cattle will help Tyson as it faces thinner returns in chicken and pork. Ranchers fared relatively well during the supply chain disruptions of the pandemic, but hog farmers were forced to cull thousands of animals, poultry producers destroyed eggs and dairy farmers dumped milk. That’s resulted in tighter pork and chicken supplies.Meanwhile, cattle farmers are getting left out of the beef profits, and more headwinds are coming, namely high grain prices. Hog herds have been expanding in China as professional farms replace backyard operations. That’s boosting demand for feed grains because smallholders tended to feed pigs table scraps, while the farms use corn and soy meal. As China makes massive grain purchases off world markets, prices are soaring to eight-year highs.“Looking ahead, we are increasingly concerned about the cattle industry reducing supply, particularly now that corn is approaching $8 a bushel and pasture conditions are the worst in years.,” Goldman and Naughton said. “For the time being, however, cattle remain plentiful, particularly with packers struggling to find labor to run at full capacity.”(Updates with year-to-date growth numbers in fourth paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Spartanburg, South Carolina, May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- During the May meeting of the Wofford College Board of Trustees, the college announced the successful completion of its six-year $300 million comprehensive campaign with gifts and pledges totaling more than $470 million as of May 7, 2021, one year ahead of schedule. The “For Wofford” campaign yielded five new buildings, the renovation and improvement of several other facilities and 189 new endowed scholarships and funding to support experiential learning and campus renovations. “It’s important to pause, celebrate and express our enormous appreciation for the gifts we received, but it’s also vital that we honor all of the donors and gifts of this campaign by striving for an even more powerful student experience and an even better Wofford College,” said Wofford’s President Dr. Nayef Samhat. Keystones of the campaign were the contributions of Jerry Richardson, Wofford Class of 1959, who contributed a total of $257.3 million, including a recent $150 million gift to the endowment to support scholarships and experiential learning for students with financial need, an increase in the minimum wage on campus for Wofford staff and the care and maintenance of all Richardson-named buildings and facilities. The Richardson gift ranks among the largest single gifts made to a national liberal arts college. Exceeding the campaign goal was a significant accomplishment, but Chris Carpenter, campaign co-chair and the chairman-elect of the college’s board of trustees, says this is just the beginning. “Together we accomplished an ambitious goal,” said Carpenter, referencing the 14,365 forward-thinking alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff and friends of the college who made contributions during the ‘For Wofford’ campaign. “The impact of their generosity is evident on our historic campus and in the areas of academic excellence and student opportunity and experience. Wofford College is fortunate to have such loyal supporters now and as we take the next steps.” One of the new buildings, the Chandler Center for Environmental Studies, was dedicated on Friday, May 7, with a ribbon-cutting celebration. Also new to the campus because of the “For Wofford” campaign are the Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts, the Stewart H. Johnson Greek Village, Jerry Richardson Indoor Stadium and Jerome Johnson Richardson Hall, a 150-bed residence hall for first-year students. Existing buildings on campus have also received renovations through the campaign, including the Sandor Teszler Library and the Campus Life Building, which was renamed the Mungo Student Center in honor of Maria and Steven Mungo whose gifts are transforming where students dine, workout and gather. Mungo is a 1981 graduate of Wofford. “We had gifts of all sizes and every one of them has made Wofford a better college,” said Dr. David Wood, senior vice president for advancement. “Wofford people are loyal and generous, and it’s because of them that we completed the campaign successfully during a pandemic and did so one year ahead of our planned schedule. We are forever grateful to all who love and support Wofford College.” “That’s just what Terriers do,” said Dr. Danny Morrison, a member of the Wofford Class of 1975 and campaign co-chair. “I can’t imagine a better use of funds than supporting the next generation of leaders.” Wofford College, established in 1854, is a four-year, residential liberal arts college located in Spartanburg, South Carolina. It offers 27 major fields of study to a student body of 1,775 undergraduates. Nationally known for the strength of its academic program, outstanding faculty, study abroad participation and successful graduates, Wofford is recognized consistently as a “best value” and for its commitment to student success and accessibility for low- and middle-income students. The college community has 12 sororities and fraternities as well as 19 NCAA Division I athletics teams. ### CONTACT: Dudley Brown Wofford College 864-597-4538 email@example.com
