Brooklyn, N.Y., 10 p.m., Thursday, March 14.WW photo: ImaniNew York — The neighborhood of East Flatbush in Brooklyn has been rocked since the brutal slaying of 16-year-old African-American Kimani Gray by the police on the night of March 9. The details are still coming out, with the plainclothes cops who shot Gray and eyewitnesses offering differing accounts on whether the youth was armed or pleading for mercy.But even the New York Police Department admits that the cops shot Gray 11 times. The autopsy report released March 13 said the teenager was hit seven times, including by three bullets which entered his body while his back was turned away from the officers. (nytimes.com, March 13)Brooklyn, N.Y., March 13.This latest police killing comes at a time when the NYPD has been mercilessly pursuing its infamous “stop-and-frisk” policy. According to the New York Civil Liberties Union, in 2012, 87 percent of cop stops were of Black or Latino/a people and 9 out of 10 were innocent of any infractions. In the first six months of 2012 alone, cops, security guards and vigilantes killed 110 Black people in the United States, according to the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement.The capitalist media were prepared to treat Gray as yet another statistic until a vigil on Monday night, March 11, took an especially militant turn. Rebellious protesters and community members liberated goods from businesses along Church Avenue and engaged in other extralegal tactics.Angry crowds increased the following nights. Groups with participants included Workers World Party, Red Youth and the New Black Panther Party. New York City Councilmember Charles Barron and others were in attendance as well.Until announced otherwise, there will be nightly demonstrations at East 52nd Street and Church Avenue in Brooklyn at 7 p.m. More details can be found on Facebook at the “We want Justice for Kimani Gray” event.Shallcross attended the nightly demonstration on March 13.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
….Great bravery shown by police. California Highway Patrol was on scene within 3 minutes, with first officer to enter shot numerous times. That Sheriff’s Sergeant died in the hospital. God bless all of the victims and families of the victims. Thank you to Law Enforcement.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 8, 2018Acosta suspendedJim Acosta, CNN’s chief White House correspondent’s press pass was suspended Wednesday.Acosta tweeted Wednesday night “I’ve just been denied entrance to the WH. Secret Service just informed me I cannot enter the WH grounds for my 8pm hit.”Sarah Sanders, White House press secretary, confirmed his suspension stating that the suspension stemmed from his interaction with a White House intern. According to Sanders, Acosta placed “his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job…” as he was in a heated debate with President Trump.CNN said in a statement Wednesday night Sanders “lied” in her explanation of the press pass suspension.“You’re fired.”Attorney General Jeff Sessions submitted his resignation Wednesday at the request of President Trump.Sessions’ resignation came only a day after the midterms, where the Republicans held onto control of the Senate. Trump’s distaste for Sessions, who was one of Trump’s earliest and most loyal supporters, was well known. The President mocked the attorney general on many occasions.Matthew Whitaker, Sessions’ Chief of Staff, will take over as acting attorney general. He will take charge of the Russian investigation and the special counsel Robert Mueller.Immigration DirectivePresident Trump will sign a directive this week that will revamp the asylum system here in the United States.This directive will require asylum seekers to make a claim for asylum at a point of entry on the border. Currently, migrants can enter the U.S. and have up to a year to request asylum. The Trump administration feels this change will use resources better and create a safer and more orderly process.According to administration officials, President Trump is expected to sign this directive Friday, before leaving for Paris.RecountFlorida Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson called for a recount Wednesday in the race for his re-election against Republican Gov. Rick Scott.The incumbent in a statement said Scott declared victory prematurely.An automatic recount is triggered in Florida when the final margin is less than 0.5 percent. According to The New York Times, Scott leads by 0.4 percent with 100 percent of the precincts reporting.The vote count will not be finalized until Saturday at noon.Georgia’s governor raceRepublican Brian Kemp declared victory Wednesday in Georgia’s governor race. However, election officials are continuing to count absentee and provisional ballots, which narrow Kemp’s lead over Democrat Stacey Abrams.Abrams is confident she could have the votes to force a runoff election between the two candidates. Various voting rights advocates accused Kemp and various local officials of disenfranchising thousands of voters on Tuesday. There were hundreds of complaints about long lines, broken equipment and a shortage of voting machines. As of Wednesday evening, Kemp was head with 50.3 percent of the vote compared to Abram’s 48.7 percent. This means Abrams and the Libertarian candidate would need to receive at least 25,000 votes more than Kemp to bring his percentage of the vote to below 50 percent and trigger a runoff.Conway defends President TrumpKellyanne Conway, the White House counselor, defended President Trump Wednesday for calling a black reporter’s question “racist”.The reporter asked President Trump during his post-midterm news conference about his self-professed nationalism.Conway said on “PBS NewsHour” Wednesday night that “there’s a difference between nationalism and white nationalism.” Facebook Linkedin Alexa Hineshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexa-hines/ Tunnel of Oppression highlights different groups, encourages change Seniors react to postponing May Commencement Facebook Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Alumnus to reopen local bar Alexa Hines What we’re reading: Chauvin found guilty in Floyd case, Xi to attend Biden’s climate change summit Alexa Hineshttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexa-hines/ Breaking barriers: Trailblazing women in sports media Alexa is the Audience Engagement Editor for TCU360.

Information hero Ali Abdulemam Ali Abdulemam is a pioneer. In 1999, he created Bahrain Online, his country’s first pro-democracy forum and a very popular one. For his pains, he was arrested, beaten and tortured several times for “publishing false information.” He was released for the last time on 23 February 2011, a week after a “Day of Anger” began a series of peaceful protests in Manama that ended up being crushed violently. A wary person, he fled just before the police came to his home to arrest him again. In June 2011, a military court sentenced him in absentia to 15 years on charges of conspiracy and participating in an attempted coup d’état. He now lives in exile in the United Kingdom, where he continues his fight. Help by sharing this information

He was promoted to Captain after serving nine years with Odessa Fire Rescue, and has served as an engineer for the last three years. The firefighters and families of Odessa Fire Rescue gathered at the Central Fire Station recently to recognize some new promotions in the department.Fire Chief John Alvarez began the ceremony Tuesday by recognizing some of the department’s former rookies, who after one year of training were awarded their black fire badges, signifying one year with OFR.“When you earn the One-Year Shield you begin to set the foundation of what you want your career to look like in this department,” Alvarez said. “You are the future of this department. You have the burden of becoming the leaders of this organization.”To earn that one-year shield, the six firefighters awarded at the ceremony had to endure a year of various tests, including physical and written examinations, map tests, and a paramedic exam.

A division bench comprising Chief Justice Abhay S Oka and Justice Vishwajith Shetty ordered : “We direct that no further steps shall be taken on the basis of order dated Aug 31, 2020.” The court was hearing a petition filed by People Union of Civil Liberties, Karnataka, challenging the August 31 order wherein the Government has granted permission for the withdrawal of prosecution of the 61 cases, under the section 321 of Code of Criminal Procedure. The court has directed the state government to file its statement of objections to the petition by January 22, 2021 and posted the matter for further hearing on January 29, 2021.On the previous hearing, the court inits order had observed that : “No Court is bound by such a decision taken to withdraw from the prosecution. Even if an application is made under Section 321 of Cr.P.C, the Courts are duty bound to assess whether a prima facie case is made out or not and that the Court has power to reject the prayer”. As per the plea, the cases being withdrawn include against the state’s Law Minister JC Madhuswamy, Tourism Minister CT Ravi and Agriculture Minister B C Patil. A case from 2017 against Hospete MLA Anand Singh is also sought to be withdrawn. Advocate Clifton D’ Rozario, appearing for the petitioners, had argued that the decision was against the rule of law. The court had earlier referred to the Supreme Court order in the case of S.K.SHUKLA AND OTHERS vs. STATE OF UTTAR PRADESH AND OTHERS, in which it is observed that even if government instructs to the Public Prosecutor to withdraw from the prosecution of a case, the latter after applying his mind to the facts of the case may either agree with the instructions and file a petition before the Court stating grounds of withdrawal or disagree therewith having found a good case for prosecution and refuse to file the withdrawal petition. The decision also observed that in the event the Public Prosecutor disagrees, he will have to return the brief. It further observed that the Public Prosecutor cannot act like a post box or act on the dictates of the State Government and he has to act objectively as he is also an officer of the Court.
