VIDEOS, PHOTOS: FBI AGENTS SPREAD ACROSS MONSEY, KIRYAS YOEL IN MULTIPLE RAIDS

20

[Multiple videos and expanded photos below.] FBI agents are canvassing the Monsey, NY, and Kiryas Yoel, NY, communities today in a bid to seize records for materials and equipment purchased for local schools with federal education technology dollars.

The raid, which has brought FBI agents to Ponoma, Airmont and Spring Valley as well, is related to an investigation of how local schools participated in the E-Rate program, or the Schools and Libraries Program of the Universal Service Fund, which is administered by the Universal Service Administrative Company (USAC) under the direction of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

The Schools and Libraries program, founded in 1998, makes telecommunications and information services more affordable for schools and libraries. Mandated by Congress in 1996 and implemented by the Federal Communications Commission in 1997, the E-rate program provides discounted telecommunications, internet access, and internal connections to eligible schools and libraries, funded by the Universal Service Fund.

The FBI is working locally with the Rockland District Attorney and others.

Today’s raid is taking place at the same time that prosecutors on the state and federal levels are investigating local governmental corruption, though today’s activity may be unrelated.

Investigators have been examining whether E-Rate dollars going to local schools were not being used for the proper programs, but were being misappropriated.

Neither the FBI nor local officials are commenting on today’s raid or the current investigation.

  1. as the guy in the second video says: It pays to be straight.. these words cannot be stressed enough… Rikers Island is a zoo

  2. Selective persecution. The idea of government is to take away from the taxpayers, and spend on purchasing favors and elections. Everybody who is connected to the government’s money distribution steals one way or another. Yet, only some Jews, who are probably some of the least offenders, are being singled out by the self righteous hypocrites.

  3. Can’t have it both ways
    you play the financial hand YOU choose but YOU can’t nor should YOU try burn both ends of the candle

  4. Did some research into this. Seems that computer company did wiring and hardware for a bunch of schools and over charged the governments E-rate program. So the investigation focuses mainly on this one buisness that did it. While corruption is wrong no matter what the amount , the numbers are small compared to what goes on all over the country. This investigation costs the government many times more then what was taken.
