Apple Security Chief Offered iPads to Police as a Bribe for Gun Permits, Prosecutors Allege

Apple Inc.’s
head of security has been indicted on bribery charges for a scheme in which prosecutors allege he offered iPads to secure gun permits for his company’s employees.

Thomas Moyer allegedly promised to give 200 iPads to the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office to get four concealed carry licenses, according to Jeffrey Rosen, district attorney of the Bay Area county where Apple is based. The charges are part of a broader probe into the sheriff’s office.

Two high-ranking sheriff’s office officials, Undersheriff Rick Sung and Captain James Jensen, were indicted on a charge of requesting the bribe. The two men held back on issuing the permits until Mr. Moyer “agreed to donate close to $70,000 worth of iPads,” said Mr. Rosen. “The donation was pulled back at the eleventh hour when our search warrants into this probe began.”

More immigration detainees allege subpar gynecological care at Georgia facility

Amin has denied any wrongdoing and the hospital has said that just two such procedures have been performed on detainees since 2017.

The Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General opened an investigation into the center last month.

Chicago lawyer Adam Snyder said Friday that he helped assemble an independent team of medical experts, including nine board-certified obstetricians, to examine women’s claims of subpar treatment after Project South released the whistleblower complaint from former nurse Dawn Wooten.

The team, which briefed congressional staff members on their findings Thursday, said in a five-page report obtained by The Washington Post that it reviewed more than 3,200 pages of medical records from 19 women who alleged mistreatment. They found what they consider to be a troubling pattern of inadequate care that included incorrect diagnoses and a failure to secure informed consent for surgery and other procedures.

Snyder said he was concerned that

Alexander Hillel Treisman, 19, plotted to assassinate Biden, federal officials allege: ‘Should I kill Joe Biden?’

It didn’t appear to be an idle threat, the feds say.

The 19-year-old searched online for Biden’s home address and for night-vision goggles, and purchased an AR-15 in New Hampshire, according to federal court documents first reported Thursday by WBTV. At one point in May, Treisman ended up at a Wendy’s within four miles of Biden’s home in Delaware. And when he was arrested later that month in North Carolina, police searching his van found four rifles, a 9mm handgun, explosive materials, books on bomb making, and $509,000 in cash that’s believed to be his inheritance.

Those revelations all come in an order that a federal magistrate judge filed earlier this month outlining why Treisman, who was indicted by a federal grand jury in September on child pornography charges, should remain in custody.

It’s unclear whether Treisman will face additional charges related to the alleged plot.

Azerbaijan and Armenia allege truce violations, accuse each other in shelling

BAKU/YEREVAN (Reuters) – Azerbaijan and Armenia accused each other on Saturday of fresh attacks in violation of a week-old Russian-brokered truce that has failed to halt the worst fighting in the South Caucasus since the 1990s.

Baku said 13 civilians were killed and more than 50 wounded in the city of Ganja by an Armenian missile attack, while Yerevan accused Azerbaijan of continued shelling.

The fighting is the worst in the region since Azerbaijan and ethnic Armenian forces went to war in the 1990s over Nagorno-Karabakh, a mountain territory that is internationally recognised as part of Azerbaijan but populated and governed by ethnic Armenians.

The Azeri Prosecutor General’s office said a residential
