Sylville Smith’s life matters. La vida de Sylville Smith importa

first_imgSylville SmithThe statement below, issued in English and Spanish by Voces de la Frontera in Milwaukee, condemns the acquittal on June 21 of a Milwaukee police officer in the 2016 killing of community member Sylville Smith.“We are heartbroken and angry that the criminal justice system has again failed to hold a police officer accountable for killing a Black man,” said Christine Neumann-Ortiz, Executive Director of Voces de la Frontera. “Sylville Smith’s life matters. He was murdered by the same legal system that racially profiles Latinxs, separates immigrant families through deportation and labels millions of people of color as criminals. He was murdered by the same economic system that outsources jobs from good paying factories, defunds public schools and health care, and evicts and forecloses on Black, Brown and working-class families. We especially urge Milwaukee non-Black Latinx and immigrant community members to protest this verdict. We cannot demand justice for Latinx and immigrant families without demanding justice for Black families separated by the police killings of loved ones.“Voces de la Frontera condena la ­exoneración del policía de Milwaukee en el asesinato de un miembro de la comunidad: Junio 21, una vez más un policía fue exonerado después de asesinar a un hombre afroamericano, esta vez en Milwaukee. Voces de la Frontera publicó la siguiente declaración:“Estamos tristes y enojados que el sistema de justicia penal otra vez no ha castigado a un policía por matar a un hombre afroamericano,” dijo Christine Neumann-Ortiz, directora ejecutiva de Voces de la Frontera. “La vida de Sylville Smith importa. Él fue asesinado por el mismo sistema legal que discrimina en contra de los latinxs, separa a las familias inmigrantes por la deportación y nombra a millones de personas de color como criminales. Fue asesinado por el mismo sistema económico que está cerrando las fábricas que proveía trabajos buenos pagados, que está cortando fondos de las escuelas públicas y el cuidado de salud y desaloja a las familias de color y de la clase trabajadora. Animamos especialmente a los latinxs e inmigrantes de Milwaukee a protestar este juicio. No podemos exigir justicia para las familias latinas e inmigrantes sin exigir justicia para las familias afroamericanas rotas por los asesinatos policíacas.”Voces de la Frontera, a national leader in the movement for immigrant and worker rights, is the largest grassroots Latinx membership organization in ­Wisconsin: www.vdlf.org.

Seven journalists assaulted and three radio stations torched in a bloody weekend for press freedom

Reporters Without Borders appealed to pro and anti-government supporters to put an end to attacks against the media and individual journalists Newscenter_img Seven journalists have come under attack in a bloody increase in assaults on the media, as an uprising spread in Haiti.One journalist was shot and badly injured and six others have been assaulted covering demonstrations. Three radio stations have been torched.Reporters Without Borders called on government and opposition supporters to take all necessary steps to end these attacks.On 21 february, Pierre Eli Sem, owner and manager of Radio Hispagnola in Trou du Nord (27 kms southeast of Cap-Haïtien) and correspondent for the private radio station Radio Métropole in the northeast, was in his car when thugs forced their way in and shot him several times, seriously injuring him in the neck and legs. He was described as out of danger. Elie Sem said he had been threatened for several days since he had begun broadcasting news from Radio Métropole on Radio Hispagnola. He decided to broadcast Radio Métropole news bulletins after the management of Radio Cap-Haïtien suspended the bulletins following threats from supporters of the ruling Fanmi Lavalas party. The following day the offices of Radio Hispagnola in Trou du Nord were torched by supporters of the former deputy Nahoum Marcellus. The commando was driven off by anti-government rebels, who arrived on the scene having taking the town of Cap-Haïtien. Groups of demonstrators, protected by the rebels, then began ransacking and setting fire to Radio Africa and Radio Télé Kombit (RTK), belonging respectively to Nahoum Marcellus and Jose Ulysse, a member of President Aristide’s inner cabinet.Other journalists were targeted on 20 February, including several foreigners. Claude Bellevue of Radio Ibo, was hit in the back by shell fragments fired from a 12 calibre gun when he was covering a peaceful demonstration by students in Port-au-Prince. He was attacked by armed groups supporting President Aristide. During the same demonstration a Spanish cameraman suffered an ear injury as a result of a machete blow and a photographer with Agence France-Presse (AFP) was also injured, the agency said.Associated Press (AP), reported that Roberto Andrade, of the Mexican television channel Televisa, and another reporter working for the Mexican network TV Azteca, had to flee when they were stoned by militants, who then chased and caught up with them and forced them to hand over their film.

Arauca community radio station threatened by persons claiming to be paramilitaries

first_img Reporters Without Borders is very worried about the threats that have been made against Sarare Estéreo, a community radio station based in Saravena, in the northeastern department of Arauca, since early May. In the latest incident, on 28 May, the entrance of the station was painted with the letters AUC – the initials of the paramilitary alliance known as the United Self-Defence Groups of Colombia.“An investigation must be carried out as quickly as possible to determine whether these threats are coming from the paramilitaries and, in the meantime, Sarare Estéreo and its staff must be given protection at once,” the press freedom organisation said. “The paramilitaries have not disarmed despite the government’s demobilisation programme. They continue to have connections within the political class, in some cases at a very high level, and they continue to pose a serious danger to the media, especially in the provinces.”“A detailed evaluation of the risks must be carried out and security measures must be taken by the authorities, in coordination with journalists’ organisations and human rights groups,” Reporters Without Borders added, saying it was ready to contribute to such an initiative.The staff of Sarare Estéreo found the letters AUC painted on the entrance to the station on the morning of 28 May. Officially demobilised in June 2006, the AUC is Colombia’s biggest paramilitary group. Sarare Estéreo manager Ella Patricia Ardila told Reporters Without Borders that all of the station’s staff have been getting threatening messages signed “Arauca Self-Defence Groups” since 8 May. The messages warn them “not to meddle in subjects that do not concern you.”Sarare Estéreo’s programme content consists almost entirely of music. Its only news programme is broadcast from 6 to 7 am. In early May, it reported the capture of a drug trafficker known as Pablo Arauca, who allegedly set up paramilitary groups on the department. But Ardila said his arrest was widely covered by all the national media so it would not explain the threats against Sarare Estéreo. Other local sources take the same view, claiming that ordinary criminal gangs are using the “AUC” label to create a climate of fear.

It may be noted that as reported by Hindi News Portal, Jagran, after they pleaded guilty to the charges under Indian Penal Code, the Judicial Magistrate, Dhanbad Ritwika Singh imposed Rs 3,000 each on the petitioners. The case has been reportedly disposed of on these terms and now the petitioners are free to go back to their country. As far as charges under levelled under the Foreigners Act were concerned, the Additional District Judge-III (ADJ), at Dhanbad discharged all the 10 Indonesian Nationals along with two Indian Nationals (Guides) while noting, “In the entire case diary, no reason for submitting charge sheet against the petitioners under the penal provisions of Foreigners Act has been assigned.” The Court further remarked, “So far (their) overstay in India is concerned, these accused persons had their valid Visa which had not expired and only because of the lockdown proclaimed by the Central Government followed by the State Government, they overstayed. Had the lockdown was not proclaimed then these accused persons could never have been subject to criminal case.” In the present case, cognizance was taken u/s 14B/14C/13 of the Foreigner Act but the Court noted that no material/evidence was brought before the Court that accused entered into the territory of India on the basis of forged passport. Importantly, the Court remarked, “There is acute absence of materials to proceed further and framing any charge u/s 14B, 14C/13 of The Foreigners Act 1946 and accordingly the petition made for discharge u/s 227 of the Cr.P.C. is allowed to that extent.” Lastly, the petitioners were discharged from the allegations of offences u/s 14B, 14C/13 of The Foreigners Act 1946. As stated, for charges under Section viz 175, 176, 188, 269, 270, 271 r/w 34 of the IPC and section -3 of the Epidemic Deceases Act, they were tried before the Judicial Magistrate, Dhanbad Ritwika Singh, wherein they pleaded guilty (as reported by various media portals). In related news, noting that police didn’t collect any material in any form to make a prima-facie view that the foreign nationals before the Court had indulged in religious/Tabligh work, the Patna High Court last month quashed entire Criminal Prosecution against 18 foreigners associated with Tablighi Jamaat. Also, while observing that the plea raised by accused persons is “reasonably probable” that none of them was present at Markaz during the relevant period and they had been picked up from different places so as to maliciously prosecute them, the Saket Court (Delhi) last month acquitted 36 foreigners facing trial for allegedly flouting COVID guidelines while participating in a Tablighi Jamaat event in Nizamuddin in March this year. Further, while staying further criminal proceedings in a case against the applicant-accused (Mohd. Sad) for attending Tablighi Jamaat Congregation, the Allahabad High Court last month observed that charge sheeting the applicant under Section 307 IPC prima facie reflected abuse of the power of law. Last week, the Supreme Court allowed about 27 persons accused in connection with the Tablighi Jamaat congregation, who have been discharged and against which order the government is at present exploring the feasibility of filing a revision, to return to their home countries on giving an undertaking/bond to the registry of the top court.Click Here To Download Order/JudgmentRead Order/JudgmentSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

21-year-old Marine killed during training exercise, officials say

first_imgNick J./iStock(BRIDGEPORT, Calif.) — A 21-year-old Marine was killed in a tactical vehicle accident during a training exercise in California on Sunday, officials said.Pfc. Christian Bautista, of Cook County, Illinois, was riding in a M-1151 Enhanced Armament Carrier vehicle at the time of the accident at the U.S. Marines Corps’ Mountain Warfare Training Center in Bridgeport, California.Two Marines from Bautista’s vehicle conducted lifesaving measures before paramedics arrived. But the young man was pronounced dead at the scene on Sunday at around 7:15 a.m. local time, according to a recent press release from the 1st Marine Logistics Group, which did not provide further details on the training exercise or what caused the fatal accident.The incident is under investigation.“Our primary concern is for the Marine we’ve lost, his family, friends, and fellow Marines and sailors,” Brig. Gen. Roberta L. Shea, commanding general of 1st Marine Logistics Group, said in a statement Tuesday. “We have them in our prayers and will exhaust all resources to aid them during this difficult time.”Bautista was a motor vehicle operator serving as a vehicle turret gunner assigned to 1st Transportation Support Battalion, Combat Logistics Regiment 1, 1st Marine Logistics Group.Bautista enlisted in the Marine Corps in September 2018. After graduating from Motor Transportation School at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri, he was assigned to 1st Transportation Support Battalion at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in California in May 2019. His awards include the National Defense Service Medal and the Global War on Terror Service Medal, according to the press release from the 1st Marine Logistics Group.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Nashville attorney’s license suspended after posting advice on getting away with murder

first_imgDNY59/iStockBy JULIA JACOBO, ABC News(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — The license of a Nashville, Tennessee attorney has been suspended for four years after he posted advice on how to get away with murder.The advice was given in 2017 in response to a post by a Facebook friend who described a “tumultuous” breakup with her child’s father and inquired about the legality of carrying a gun in her car, according to court documents filed in the Supreme Court of Tennessee on Friday.Attorney Winston Bradshaw Sitton reportedly wrote that if the woman wanted to kill her ex-boyfriend, she should “lure” him into her home and “claim” he broke in with intent to do her harm and she feared for her life, according to the Tennessee Supreme Court judgment.Sitton, whose Facebook page described him as a lawyer, also emphasized in the comment that his advice was given “as a lawyer” and that if she was “remotely serious” she should delete the thread, because it could be used as proof of premeditation against her in trial, the court documents state.“If you want to kill him, then lure him into your house and claim he broke in with intent to do you bodily harm and that you feared for your life,” he wrote. “Even with the new stand your ground law, the castle doctrine is a far safer basis for use of deadly force.”In response to Sitton’s comment, the woman wrote, “I wish he would try,” to which Sitton advised her to “keep mum about this,” the documents state.According to the judgment, Sitton had never met the woman in person but had been friends with her on the social media platform for about a year.Although the woman later deleted the Facebook post, her ex-boyfriend became aware of the exchange and brought screenshots to Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich, who then passed the screenshots to the Tennessee Board of Professional Responsibility, according to the court documents.Sitton received a four-year suspension, one year of which is an active suspension and the rest is on probation.The case is described as “a cautionary tale on the ethical problems that can befall lawyers on social media” in the judge’s opinion, which was written by Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Holly Kirby.Disciplinary proceedings found that Sitton’s conduct was “prejudicial to the administration of justice” and in violation of the state’s rules of professional conduct. Disciplinary proceedings are not criminal proceedings, the court document made clear, and he has not been criminally charged.Sitton describes himself on his LinkedIn page as a “lawyer/business consultant with extensive experience in the healthcare, financial services, and entertainment industries.”In a statement posted to his firm’s Facebook page, Sitton said the language he wrote in the post was “intemperate” and that he regretted “the way this utterance was phrased” but described the comment as “intentionally caustic and cynical.”“I adamantly contest the finding that my gratuitous commentary offered to a battered woman, who was being threatened and abused and harassed by her son’s father, was legal advice as to how to commit a crime or in any way violated my legal duties as either a citizen or as a lawyer,” Sitton wrote.“We agree with Mr. Sitton that it is hard to conceive of any reason why a lawyer, any lawyer, would offer instructions on how to commit murder and stage a concocted defense,” Kirby’s judicial opinion stated.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
