FBI Over-Counted Encrypted Phones Connected To Crimes — By A Lot

The FBI significantly over-counted the number of encrypted phones it says are connected to ongoing criminal investigations but remain inaccessible to investigators without back door access. For about seven months, the bureau has been telling Congress and the public that potential evidence on nearly 7,800 blocked devices continues to elude investigators. The statistic has been cited repeatedly by multiple officials and lawmakers to demonstrate what they say is the growing threat encryption software combined with a reluctance by manufacturers to provide a key, poses to national security and public safety. But in reality, the true number of devices that have impeded investigations, is likely to be a fraction of that, the FBI acknowledged in a statement Tuesday. "The FBI's initial assessment is that programming errors resulted in significant over-counting of mobile devices reported through [the Operational Technology Division's] databases," the FBI said. It explained that a new collection

Milwaukee Police Disciplined For Using Stun Gun On, Arresting NBA Player

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oPSpmk7S4eg Milwaukee police have released bodycam footage showing officers using a stun gun on Milwaukee Bucks rookie Sterling Brown in a Walgreens parking lot in January. The officers arrested Brown, who is black, after challenging him over a parking violation. Brown was not charged with a crime. Shortly after the Jan. 26 arrest, a "law enforcement source" told radio station News/TAlk 1130 WISN that Brown had been "combative." But in a statement on Wednesday, Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales said the department had "conducted an investigation into the incident which revealed members acted inappropriately and those members were recently disciplined." "I am sorry this incident escalated to this level," Morales wrote. Brown, a 6-foot-6 guard who graduated from Southern Methodist University last year, released a response to the video that was posted on local TV station WTMJ: "The common denominator in all of these situations has been racism towards

Opioid Crisis Takes A Toll On Economic Outlook For Many Americans, Fed Says

One out of five Americans say they personally know someone who has been addicted to opioids or prescription painkillers, according to a new report about the economic well-being of U.S. households. The Federal Reserve report , based on a national survey, also found that exposure to opioid addiction was twice as likely among whites, regardless of education level, as among African-Americans. Survey respondents who knew someone who had been addicted to opioids were less likely to give the national or local economy a favorable rating. It was the first time the Fed has included questions about opioid addiction in its annual survey , which began in 2013. Economists are are taking seriously the idea that opioid abuse and addiction are having an impact on the economy. Alan Krueger, a professor of economics at Princeton University, found in an August 2017 report that as much as 20 percent of the decline of male participation in the labor force could be related to opioid abuse.

On Capitol Hill, USA Gymnastics President Apologizes To Nassar's Victims

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72PZQaZ8qTI A House subcommittee heard testimony today from executives of a number of U.S. sport governing bodies that are embroiled in sexual abuse scandals, including gymnastics, swimming, taekwondo and volleyball. Susanne Lyons, acting chief executive of the U.S. Olympic Committee, said her organization had taken steps to reform the system, including doubling its funding for the U.S. Center for SafeSport , which was created last year to prevent abuse in sports. "The Olympic community failed the people it was supposed to protect," Lyons said in her testimony before the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee. "I know that we can do better. We will do better." Lyons stepped in to lead the USOC on an acting basis in February when the CEO resigned , citing health concerns. Many of the House members' questions were directed at USA Gymnastics President and CEO Kerry Perry, who joined that organization in December amidst a crisis over former team doctor Larry

How Philip Roth's Writing Transcended The Narrow Confines Of A Culture

Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit AUDIE CORNISH, HOST: One of the greats of American literature has died. Philip Roth shocked the world with "Portnoy's Complaint" in 1969. And during his career, he won pretty much every literary award - the Pulitzer, the National Book Award twice, the International Man Booker, every award except the Nobel. Roth used his hometown of Newark, N.J., and his Jewish heritage as fodder for his novels. But his ideas and themes transcend the narrow confines of any one culture. NPR's Lynn Neary has this remembrance. LYNN NEARY, BYLINE: Philip Roth was a hero to the writer Nathan Englander, and no one was more surprised than Englander when Roth became not just a mentor but a friend. NATHAN ENGLANDER: He was really loving and teasy (ph) and avuncular and supportive. NEARY: Englander often tells the story of finding "Portnoy's Complaint" as a teenager. It was hidden by some other books in his mother's nightstand. He had never heard of the book or the author,
