No Charges for Hatboro Councilman Who Shot Suspected TD Bank Robber


Montgomery County district attorney Risa Vetri Ferman announced today that Hatboro Councilman George Forgeng, who shot a suspected bank robber this summer, will not face charges.

Kevin Philip-Johnson Way entered the T.D. Bank on South York Road in Hatboro on July 8th, according to authorities, and showed the teller a note: “Give me $2,500 or I’ll start shooting, don’t make a sound and don’t move.” He got just $468 from a teller, and fled the premises.

While fleeing on foot down South York Road, the dye pack exploded, leaving Way surrounded by a large cloud of red smoke. Forgeng saw the smoke from the dye pack and said he figured Way had just robbed the TD Bank (which had been hit before). Forgeng followed him to a parking lot, armed with a Glock 9mm handgun.

“Go ahead and shoot me,” Way said to Forgeng, according to authorities. Read more »

Government Drops Charges Against Chinese-Born Temple Prof


Federal officials on Friday dropped charges against the Temple professor they had previously said shared confidential technology to his native China.

The feds offered no explanation in withdrawing the wire fraud charges against Xiaoxing Xi, saying in court documents only that it is “in the interests of justice” to discontinue the case. But the New York Times reported that federal prosecutors had discovered they misunderstood the technology at the heart of their case against Xi.

The technology involved a so-called “pocket heater,” used in semiconductor research. Xi allegedly sent schematics for such a device to contacts in China. Except, it turns out, he didn’t.

“The blueprints were not for a pocket heater. Faced with sworn statements from leading scientists, including an inventor of the pocket heater, the Justice Department on Friday afternoon dropped all charges against Dr. Xi, an American citizen,” the Times reported. “It was an embarrassing acknowledgment that prosecutors and F.B.I. agents did not understand — and did not do enough to learn — the science at the heart of the case before bringing charges that jeopardized Dr. Xi’s career and left the impression that he was spying for China.” Read more »

Feds: Fake Lawyer Represented Immigration Clients Under Nose of Department of Homeland Security, DOJ


With all of the concern over illegal immigrants and Islamic extremists in this country, you’d think that the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice might have a decent handle on what’s going on inside immigration court. But the strange tale of Leaford George Cameron shows us that this is probably not the case.

On Thursday, a federal grand jury in Philadelphia indicted the Jamaica-born 62-year-old Burlington, New Jersey, man who is accused of fraudulently posing as an attorney for 12 years. According to United States Attorney Zane David Memeger, Cameron’s client list included more than 70 people from the Philadelphia region, Florida, Illinois, New York, Connecticut, Jamaica and India.
