Secret Service Officer Arrested

CNN Reports that a Secret Service Officer has been arrested:

A Secret Service officer assigned to the White House was arrested after he was caught in a sting sending naked pictures of himself to someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl from Delaware, according to a criminal complaint unsealed Thursday.

Lee Robert Moore turned himself in to the Maryland State Police Barracks on Monday, the same day the complaint was filed against him in the U.S. District Court for Delaware.

The complaint details a series of online chats between Moore, 37, and a Delaware State Police detective posing as a 14-year-old girl from Delaware. Moore is alleged to have sent naked photos of himself to the undercover officer and requested to meet in person to have sex.

This is disgraceful. If true, this Officer should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I have zero sympathy for this guy.

Should Drug Addicts Be Forced Into Treatment?

The Boston Globe reports, that  Governor Baker wants to give hospitals authority to force treatment on substance abusers.

Administration officials say the governor plans to file legislation this week giving hospitals the authority to hold addicts against their will for three days, evaluate them, and decide whether to seek legal permission for substantially longer commitments.
The proposal, modeled after existing rules for mental illness commitments, revives longstanding concerns about the ethics and efficacy of what is known among medical specialists as “coerced treatment.” But officials say it is an appropriate response to a deadly problem.

“We have a crisis on our hands,” said Marylou Sudders, Baker’s health and human services secretary. “You need all of the tools in the toolbox.”

It’s definitely something I think should be considered. I’m just not sure if I am supportive of it. When all is said and done, I think addicts need to want to be cured, and perhaps it is best if they seek help themselves. I am also not sure I like the idea of government deciding. The NY Times has some interesting perspectives on the topic.

Hillary Says She Wanted To Be A Marine. Yeah, Sure.

National Review Online reports that even CNN is skeptical:

“We asked her campaign for just a few more details on this,” CNN’s Jeff Zeleny said. “It seems so unusual that a Yale-educated lawyer who worked on the anti- war campaigns of [Eugene] McCarthy and [George] McGovern, who had just moved to Arkansas, whose husband was about to become the attorney general of the state, would decide to want to join the Marines. But the campaign said they’re not going to add any more comment onto this.”

I am not sure which is more amazing, the fact that she lies so much, or that people actually believe her lies. It’s amusing to see the reaction of the people she tells. Watch here.

She could be telling the truth. I guess. I don’t believe it though.
