FBI: Flawed background check allowed Dylann Roof to purchase gun

RoofThe background check used to clear Dylann Roof to buy a handgun was completed incorrectly and he should not have been allowed to purchase it due to a felony drug charge, the FBI said Friday, contradicting earlier assertions the check was done properly.

FBI Director James Comey told reporters Friday a clerical error allowed Roof to purchase a .45-caliber Glock handgun despite him having previously admitted to drug possession.

"We are all sick this happened," said FBI director, James B. Comey. "We wish we could turn back time."


After 54 years, Confederate flag removed from Statehouse

Confederate flag take downThe Confederate flag was lowered from the grounds of the South Carolina Statehouse on Friday, ending its 54-year presence there and marking a stunning political reversal in a state where many thought the rebel banner would fly indefinitely.

The turnabout seemed unthinkable before the June 17 massacre of nine black parishioners — including a state senator — at a Charleston church during a Bible study. Dylann Roof, a white man who was photographed with the Confederate flag, is charged in the shooting deaths, and authorities have called the killings a hate crime.

The massacre reignited calls to remove Confederate flags and symbols across the South and around the nation.

The scope of the data breach — believed to be the biggest in U.S. history — has grown dramatically since the government first disclosed earlier this year that hackers had gotten into the Office of Personnel Management's personnel database and stolen records for about 4.2 million people. Since then, the Obama administration has acknowledged a second, related breach of the systems housing private data that individuals submit during background investigations to obtain security clearances.

Oregon travelers can fly with recreational marijuana

Oregon Passengers at Oregon's Portland International Airport can legally board airplanes with up to an ounce of marijuana for in-state flights, keeping with the state's new law that legalizes recreational marijuana.

Airport officials said the Transportation Security Administration is not focused on finding marijuana, but rather keeping up with security and safety issues. If a TSA agent finds a passenger with marijuana, the local police will be notified to ensure it is within the legal weight limit (up to an ounce), the passenger is of legal age to carry the drug (21) and the boarding pass indicates an in-state flight. If everything checks out, the passenger is free to travel.
