a delhi township man is trying to stop a hijacker... who's taken over his facebook page -- and posting intimate pictures! and tonight -- all he can do is watch as someone posts on his behalf.nineon your side reporter jason law talked to the man about why he's having a hard time getting help. how many times do we go on facebook a day? two, three, sometimes ten times? facebook has become such a big part of our lives. this poor guy says he noticed someone else posting personal information on his own page, and right now he can't do anything but watch. "he's ruining my life and i told him to stop." stop." somebody is posing as john roberts, and the real john roberts can't do anything about it. "i mean literally, he kicked me out of my entire old facebook. i can't get into none of it." roberts says the problems
6:01 pm
he was careless with his email passwords, and now he's locked out of his facebook account. "i'm extremely frustrated. whoever hijacked john's account has access to everything: his cell phone pictures, his friends, facebook messenger. john says the hijacker found and posted naked pictures of his girlfriend nicole...the last post was a menacing smiley face. "yeah, he's taunting." he's also made lewd requests. requests. "he wanted a video of me and him having sex together while he watches." it sounds scary, and computer expert kamal (kuh-mel) cook says it happens all the time. "it happens a lot. it happens more than people think." cook runs "allpro technologies" in western hills. hesays the first thing to do is to contact facebook and let them know someone is impersonating you. "the problem is facebook isn't a paid service for you or i, so our page being hacked when they've got 50 million users is at the very bottom of their to-do list, and you need facebook to fix it it "what i've seen is facebook normally just takes the whole

really don't have a good way of knowing who's who." cook says you have to take better care of your passwords. change them every couple months and use different passwords. he uses a key analogy to prove his point. you wouldn't use the same key for your car, your house and your gym locker. why do it for your passwords online? *dozens* of whistleblowers are coming forward alleging widespread problems from inside the cincinnati va veterans at risk.. the nine on your side i-team -- in partnership with the scripps washington bureau has also uncovered evidence of serious conflicts of interest involving leadership.mark greenblatt has the troubling report. i been going to the va hospital for a good 30 years vietnam veteran ted dickey has

cincinnati- for all of his care. i have a rapport with a lot of people at the va hospital. but when he needed his 2nd hip replacement, the v-a didn't have a surgeon and referred him outside becausee they their way of running a hospital is not doing surgery and farming it out." but 34 whistleblowers doctors, say veterans are getting short changed and even put at risk. many services are being devastated and are incapable of carrying out their necessary functions. longtime surgeon richard frieberg joins other whistle blowers who say many problems began when acting chief of staff barbara temeck came on board two and a half years ago and went right to work cutting costs and some say cutting corners. there is unrest throughout the hospital. he says temeck got rid of every specialist in total joint replacements. the va confirms it is now left with just "an orthopedic surgeon who can perform non-complex total knee

can do shoulders or hips. she pushed them out. they've all left. frieberg still volunteers at the va. mike brooks brooks i've seen surgical instruments that once we open that steril pack they will have pieces of bone or other debris from previous surgeries - still on the instrumentation. mike brooks is a 20 year navy veteran and has workked here as a nurse anesthetist since 2008.he and others have witnessed recurring problems during surgery and say dr. temeck has failed to invest the resources to correct the problems. it's the microscopic things that we can't see. that's what the potential infections problem for that poor patient on the table. and in fact, we found under temeck's tenure, the rate of drug resistant mrsa infections has increased substantially, turning cincinnati into one of the worst performing v-a hospitals in the nation. nurses and technicians will

feel terrible about this. they'll fill out the proper forms to get things corrected, but the forms don't seem to go anywhere but while whistleblowers criticize her cost cutting measures... they also have concerns about her pay. it's certainly common knowledge at the hospital that she's gaming the system. temeck earns $137 thousand for her management position. ( but she is also paid as a cardio thoracic surgeon. getting $194 thousand in pay for that. but what's at issue? she's in the room when surgeries happen, but i can't say that i've ever seen her pick up a scalpel. multiple sources tell us, temeck serves only as an assistant and has never worked as the operating surgeon since arriving in cincinnati. so who oversees her? at a regional level that would be network director jack hetrick turns out, hetrick and temeck go back more than a decade together in hines, illinois.
6:06 pm
temeck wrote a prescription for 50 pills of a generic form of vallium bac in 2012 for hetrick's wife. in may of 2013, just 8 weeks before temeck landed the cincinnati job, she gave mrs. hetrick another prescription for 100 pills of hydrocodone, an opiod classified as a controlled substance by the d-e-a. each time, temeck used her authority from an address linked to the v-a back in illinois illinois regulators say her controlled substance license expired back in 2011. :"was the person allowed to receive the prescriptions? from what i can gather, they were not." representative jeff miller of florida, chairs the house committee on veterans affairs. i believe that it needs to be fully investigated. . . hi. dr. temeck - mark greenblatt i'm with scripps news we've been trying to talk to you. temeck declined repeated interview requests. so we caught up with her on her way in to work. work. temeck walkup interview [clip mvi_5462/2:13]we understand you've written
6:07 pm
us anything about why you did that? now when we asked hetrick about the prescriptions, he walked out of the interview but just days after we met with officials at v-a headquarters, the agency launched an internal investigation, and called for a second inspector general investigation. the v-a also removed hetrick from all oversight of the cincinnati hospital, pending the outcome of those investigations.mark greenblatt, scripps news, in washington we have much more on the four-month long investigation on our website... w-c-p-o-dot-com. p-o-dot-com.and head to our facebook to weigh in on the facts we've uncovered... and any experiences you or a loved one has experienced at the cincinnati v-a. looking for a getaway driver. lockland police say someone took off in a gold car after the town's first homicide of the year. year.but they are also calling it self-defense.chief james toles tells us three or four men came to a maple street
