BC civil rights group files complaint about RCMP arrest of man who

first_imgVANCOUVER – A civil rights group has filed a complaint with the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission for the RCMP, alleging officers told witnesses to delete cellphone video of the arrest of a man who later died.The B.C. Civil Liberties Association filed the complaint under the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Act on Tuesday in the case of Dale Culver. The association says the 35-year-old Indigenous man was arrested in Prince George last July.An RCMP news release issued at the time says there was a struggle between officers and a suspect on the night of July 18, 2017.The Mounties said police received a report about a man casing vehicles and an officer who responded found a man who tried to flee on a bicycle. There was allegedly a struggle between the man and the officer, who called in other officers for help.The news release says pepper spray was used and officers noticed the man appeared to be having trouble breathing after he was placed in a police vehicle. He collapsed immediately after being taken out of the vehicle, police said.The man was taken to hospital, where the RCMP said he died.The civil liberties association makes a number of unproven allegations in its complaint to the commission, including that the circumstances of Culver’s arrest constituted “excessive force.” It questions why police approached Culver because it says it understands the initial complaint to police about a man casing vehicles was made several hours earlier.“In addition, this tragic incident, as it has been described, gives rise to a question as to whether RCMP members’ actions may have been affected by explicit or implicit racial bias, given Mr. Culver’s status as an Indigenous person,” the complaint asserts.Josh Paterson, executive director of the civil liberties association, says in a letter to the commission that the group “is aware of reports from eyewitnesses that state that Mr. Culver was taken forcibly to the ground by RCMP members immediately after exiting a liquor store, apparently unprovoked.”The letter goes on to say: “It is unclear to the BCCLA what circumstances existed to necessitate the use of force on Mr. Culver.”Paterson also says the association has “learned of troubling allegations that RCMP members told witnesses to delete cellphone video that they had taken.”“If these allegations are true it would be evidence of an intention on the part of RCMP members concerned to hide the truth of what happened in this incident.”RCMP Staff Sgt. Annie Linteau said the force is aware of the group’s concerns and is waiting for the findings of a review being conducted by the provincial Independent Investigations Office in the case.If any misconduct is found, the RCMP spokeswoman said it will be addressed immediately through an internal process.The Civilian Review and Complaints Commission has received the complaint, but is waiting until the Independent Investigations Office has completed its work before determining what steps to take, said spokeswoman Kate McDerby.The civil liberties association has asked the commission to either “take carriage of the investigation of this complaint, or monitor this investigation as closely as possible to the extent of (its) statutory authority.”It does not name any of the witnesses who have made unproven allegations in its complaint, which also cites unverified media reports about the arrest.The Independent Investigations Office looks into any death or serious injury in B.C. that involves police. It forwards reports to the prosecution service if they find an officer might have committed a criminal act.The commission is a national body that makes recommendations on changes to the RCMP’s policies and procedures.The Independent Investigations Office is still looking into the circumstances of the arrest, said Ron MacDonald, its chief civilian director.The investigation includes allegations that witnesses were told by RCMP to delete cellphone video of the arrest, he said.“We’ve been aware of those allegations from the beginning of the investigation. And that is included in our overall investigation,” MacDonald added.MacDonald couldn’t say when his office’s investigation will be complete. RCMP witness officers involved in the arrest have co-operated with investigators and the office is now waiting for third-party reports, including the results of an autopsy, he said.MacDonald said investigators are interested in speaking with anyone who witnessed the arrest or has information about the case.last_img read more

LTTE coordinator seeks lifting of ban on outfit

Mr. Radhakrishnan said that copies of Mr. Sivanesan’s passport and other details were attached with the affidavit. Moreover, Sivanesan had appointed him counsel through a letter.Later, the judge asked whether Mr. Sivanesan would appear before the tribunal. Mr. Radhakrishnan sought time to confirm his appearance if the government gave an assurance that he will not be arrested if he came to India to appear before the tribunal.The judge asked the Central Government’s lawyer Shanthi to respond. Chennai-based lawyer Radhakrishnan appeared on behalf of B. Sivanesan, LTTE Coordinator, Switzerland, and presented his arguments against the continuance of the ban. In the affidavit, Mr. Sivanesan stated that he was deputed as coordinator for taking care of migrant Sri Lankan Tamils in The Netherlands. He had filed cases in the European Union court to protect the interests of Tamils. The judge also heard the deposition of police officers in connection with two cases said to involve LTTE activities registered by the Chengalpet and Tiruchi police. He also heard the counter arguments of MDMK general secretary Vaiko. The LTTE had been struggling for freedom of Sri Lankan Tamils and protection of their life and property. There were no LTTE activities in India and it had no presence here. There was no need for banning the LTTE in the country. It had not received any information or summons in this connection in 2010 or 2011. The ban should be lifted, the affidavit pleaded.Reacting to the affidavit, Justice V.K. Jain, who mans the tribunal, asked: “How do we know that Mr. Sivanesan is the LTTE Coordinator and that Mr. Radhakrishnan is his counsel?” Chengalpet Town Station Inspector M.S. Baskaran said a case had been filed against Naam Thamizhar Movement leader Seeman. Mr. Vaiko intervened to say that Mr. Seeman had been acquitted. The police accepted it.Earlier, the judge turned down the request of Mr. Vaiko to appear before the court as a party to the proceedings. But, he was allowed to cross-examine them through the judge. The session lasted one and half hours.The tribunal will meet again Madurai on October 29 and in Chennai on November 3. (The Hindu) CB-CID police officer G. Rangasamy said a case was filed against three persons — Chandra Kantian alias Nagarajan, Subramanian alias Mahesh, Selvaraj alias Selvam — on the charges of smuggling detonators to Sri Lanka through Rameswaram from Tiruchi.The judge asked whether the accused had given statements before the police or a judicial officer. The officers replied that they had given statements before the police.The judge then asked whether the police had any video footage or audio tape of the accused to establish their claim. The police officers said they did not have any records. An affidavit by a Switzerland-based coordinator on behalf the outlawed Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) before a tribunal sought the lifting of the ban on the outfit.The tribunal was constituted under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, 1967, to examine the validity of the proscription. read more

AETI plans rehabilitation pilot projects in Indonesian tin

first_imgThe Association of Indonesian Tin Exporters (AETI), which currently represents 20 independent Indonesian tin producers and smelters, has reported that it is working with NGOs to develop a series of pilot projects aimed at rehabilitating abandoned mining areas in the Bangka Belitung and Riau Islands provinces.Speaking at the ITRI China International Tin Forum in Shanghai, the President of AETI, Jabin Sufianto, was quoted by ITRI as announcing that the pilot projects will involve reclamation of exhausted mining areas for use as plantations, providing an alternative source of income to mining for locals. However, Sufianto also suggested that many tin producers lack the resources to tackle environmental and sustainability issues comprehensively because of high production costs combined with low current tin prices.In a report by ITRI Markets, AETI reported that 37 exporters were active in Indonesia in 2014, with total tin exports for the year totalling 76,986 t. However, largely as a result of the current low tin prices, the number of active exporters in 2015 has decreased to 22 and total tin exports from the country during the year are expected to fall to between 65,000 and 78,000 t of tin. A tin production quota of 2,500 t/month between AETI members was agreed earlier this year in an attempt to bolster prices, but its successful implementation is uncertain as there is currently no consensus on how the allotted production will be shared. Additionally, the quota is not bound by law and the AETI has no power to enforce it.In 2015, AETI plans to manage CSR activity on behalf of its members and continue work with NGOs to develop sustainable, environmentally friendly mine practises and organise remediation work, which remain key goals for the organisation.last_img read more

Fermi space telescope fires thrusters to avoid explosive collision

first_imgTwo satellites colliding in Earth’s orbit would potentially be disastrous. Not only because of the loss of the crafts, but also because of the lethal debris it would create that could damage or destroy other satellites circling the globe.At the end of March last year NASA discovered that its Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope was on course to pass within 700 feet of the decommissioned Russian Cosmos 1805 satellite. 700 feet sounds like a lot, but NASA only works off position estimates and has been out by more than that in the past. It also didn’t help that only a week’s warning was given about the near pass.As the days went by it became clearer that the two craft would be passing extremely close to each other. The most accurate estimate put Fermi and Cosmos 1805 at the exact same location within 30 milliseconds of each other. That’s too close for comfort, especially as Cosmos 1805 weighs 3,100 pounds and is travelling at 27,000mph relative to Fermi. It was calculated that a collision would destroy both craft and release energy the equivalent of 2.5 tons of high explosives. In other words, action needed to be taken to ensure they didn’t hit at any cost.Fermi’s project scientist Julie McEnery decided to use the telescope’s thrusters, previously reserved for use only when Fermi is set to end its mission and leave orbit. Having never been tested, using them while Fermi’s mission was still in progress was a huge risk, but there was no choice. NASA fired the thrusters on April 3 for just one second and avoided the collision. They also ensured doing so would not put Fermi in danger of colliding with anything else.Such drama in space doesn’t happen very often, but it reminds us we do have a growing problem of potential collisions and the consequences they would bring. And saving Fermi was very important as it is performing an all-sky study using the on board Large Area Telescope (LAT). Since launching in 2008 it has discovered a pulsar in the CTA 1 supernova, observed the largest yet recorded energy release from the Carina constellation, discovered antimatter occurs naturally on Earth, found two massive gamma-ray and X-ray bubbles around the Milky Way, and observed the highest energy light ever seen from the Sun. Nice save, NASA.last_img read more

Federal officers move to reopen immigration office in Oregon

first_imgPORTLAND — Federal law enforcement officers arrested at least eight protesters Thursday while trying to reopen a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building in Portland that has been closed because of a round-the-clock demonstration.Officers moved in at sunrise and were able to unblock the entrance to the facility that has been shut down for more than a week, said Rob Sperling, spokesman for Federal Protective Service, which is responsible for protecting federal buildings.The names of those arrested and the charges they face were not immediately available.Sperling said the goal was not to end the protest, but to make the building accessible to employees who are likely to return to work next week. Officers were holding a boundary line between federal and private property, and they would maintain a round-the-clock security presence “for some time,” he said.Ben Dorfman, a protester who has been sleeping at the camp, told Oregon Public Broadcasting he was awakened at 5:30 a.m. by someone alerting him of law enforcement activity.“I think their priority right now is to get us off the ICE property so that the ICE building can continue to function, get people going in and out,” Dorfman said. “I don’t think they’re going to try and tear this whole thing down.”last_img read more

Code of Conduct of Some Parties yet to be received

first_imgBY Makutu Manneh The codes of conduct of some political parties which Foroyaa has long promised to publish, are yet to be received. The paper undertook to publish the codes of conduct of all registered political parties in The Gambia, but only managed to publish those of the Gambia Democratic Congress (GDC) and the People’s Democratic Organization for Independence and Socialism (PDOIS). This reporter has contacted the Gambia Action Party (GAP), the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), the Gambia Party for Democracy and Progress (GPDP) and they have made promises to provide Foroyaa with their parties’ codes of conduct. The Alliance for Patriotic, Reorientation and Construction (APRC), the National Reconciliation Party (NRP) and the Gambia Moral Congress (GMC) are the parties that our reporter struggles to reach, but will still try contacting them. As for the United Democratic Party (UDP), their spokesperson has indicated that their code of conduct is not for public consumption, but for their party members only. Almamy Fanding Taal said the party has two codes of conduct – one for the executive members and the other is for their elected representatives like councillors, mayors and National Assembly members. “We have a code of conduct. It is not for public consumption, but for the party members only,” Taal said. Codes of conducts are sets of rules outlining the norms, rules and responsibilities, and proper practices for an individual to obey. So, Foroyaa wants to update the general public about the codes of conducts their country’s political parties have for their members to follow.last_img read more

MIT group shows unseen motion captured in video

The resulting signal is then amplified to reveal hidden information,” they wrote. They noted that their technique can run in realtime to show phenomena occurring at the temporal frequencies selected by the user.”We are inspired by the Eulerian perspective,” according to the scientists, “where properties of a voxel of fluid, such as pressure and velocity, evolve over time, in a spatially multiscale manner.” In their approach to motion magnification, they said they do not explicitly estimate motion but rather exaggerate motion by amplifying temporal color changes at fixed positions.

(Phys.org) —A baby lies in the crib looking motionless, a typical situation causing worry to new parents, wondering if the baby is still breathing. A video run through an algorithm designed for amplification shows the baby is indeed breathing with movements that were invisible to the naked eye. It’s that special algorithm at the heart of interest in the work of a group of scientists at MIT who work on a project called motion magnification. They have said that “Our goal is to reveal temporal variations in videos that are difficult or impossible to see with the naked eye.” Their process breaks apart the visual elements of every frame of a video, reconstructed with an algorithm tool that can amplify aspects of the video. This is not the first time their advances have been publicized. The program was presented last year at the annual computer graphics conference, Siggraph. What is new is that the team has revamped the work and they posted code online for people interested in exploring such renderings of motion that otherwise would not be detected by the naked eye. “Our team is still actively working on this direction, so people can expect more to come,” said a team member. “We hope that it will motivate people to look deeper into this type of processing and different applications it can support.” Researchers amplify variations in video, making the invisible visible The team from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory are working on the program to analyze videos to pick up movements. The program was first developed essentially to monitor neonatal babies. They believe their algorithm can be applied to other scenarios to reveal changes imperceptible to the naked eye as well, as in hospital monitoring of patients. You can see a person’s face flushing as the blood pumps from his heart. You can read a baby’s pulse.

Cancun woman first to donate organs in state

first_imgCancun, Q.R. — A Cancun woman has become the first this year to provide an organ donation in the state.After a 48-year-old woman was admitted to the Emergency Department due to a cerebral arterial rupture that resulted in her becoming brain dead, the Procurement of Organs and Tissues department of the IMSS Regional General Hospital discussed organ donation with her family.The family agreed, allowing the woman to donate organs that benefited five people. The 48-year-old Cancun woman donated her liver, both kidneys and two corneas to five people who were on an organ donation waiting list.Surgeons of the National Medical Center arrived at the state hospital to harvest the needed organs. The woman’s liver will be transplanted in the Medical Center of the ISSSTE in Mexico City, while the kidneys will benefit two patients in the Medical Unit of Ignacio García Tellez in Mérida. Her corneas were sent to the National Medical Center, La Raza.The head of the Coordination of Procurement of Organs and Tissues, Dr. Moisés Campos Navarro, stressed the need to talk with family members about organ donations in Mexico.Organ donation in Mexico is a growing problem with more than 20,000 people waiting for a transplant in 2016 and only 7,000 donations.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Top Stories

first_img Top Stories His time with Carson Palmer, though, has been nothing short of a revelation. Last season, in particular, was something special, as both Fitzgerald and his QB torched a league that thought they were a bit too old to make that kind of impact.Palmer, who is 36 years old, was named to the Pro Bowl for the first time since 2006 after throwing for 4,761 yards and 35 touchdowns.“I can’t speak for myself, but I can speak for Carson,” Fitzgerald said. “He’s aging like fine wine. He’s getting better with time. I think, him coming off of that knee injury he had last year, he played his best football last year at 35 years old.“Only better things are coming for him this year. He has a great grasp on what Coach Arians is asking him to do. Steve Keim and Coach Arians have put around him tremendous pieces that are at his disposal.”Part of the fun in having all these weapons, as Fitzgerald noted, is that the team has a head coach who is not afraid to use them. The receiver said Arians is “so innovative” in that there are always new things being worked on and wrinkles added to the offense.“And we throw a touchdown the first time we do it,” he mused. “That’s the kind of mind he has. He’s a coach that always has his foot all the way down on the gas pedal. He is never going to let up. He is always going to be pushing for the best and biggest plays. That’s really exciting to me, especially as an offensive player on this team.” Comments   Share   Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Arians’ “no risk-it, no biscuit” mentality is one that has produced some good results over the last few seasons. In 2016, the Cardinals were first in the NFL in yards and second in points per game. According to ProFootballFocus, Palmer led the league in average depth of target at 11.3 per toss.Effective? Yes. A product of the head coach’s style? Absolutely.“He always talks about touchdowns and check downs,” Fitzgerald said of Arians. “The big plays there, we are going to take it, and we are going to make it. If it’s not there, make sure we make positive gains. That’s another one of his sayings. You never go broke, put money in the bank.” Larry Fitzgerald knows his playing days are closer to their end than their beginning.The 32-year-old (he will be 33 on Aug. 31) is entering his 13th NFL season, and while he showed last year he can still play at a very high level, he’s not oblivious to the fact that, at some point, time catches up to every player.“I would be lying to you if I told you I didn’t think [retirement] ,” he told NFL Total Access Wednesday. “You know, just trying to prepare for the next stage of your life. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “But, I have a lot of good football left in me. How long I play, I don’t know, but I feel great. I can still play at a high level, so I just take it one year at a time. And you know, I have a really fantastic football team that I’m a part of.”Fitzgerald is coming off a renaissance season that saw him catch a career-high 109 passes, with 1,215 yards and nine touchdowns. He reestablished himself as one of the game’s premier wideouts, and did so for a team that won 13 regular season games and reached the NFC Championship Game.Fitzgerald is scheduled to become a free agent following the 2016 season, though, and that — along with his age — has people wondering about how much longer he plans on playing. In fact, some are speculating that this will be his final season.However, Fitzgerald has given no indication he is planning on making a decision on that front anytime soon, and why should he? As long as he is playing well and the team is successful, it’s hard to imagine him wanting to hang up his cleats.Of course, Fitzgerald’s tenure in the desert has not been roses all the time. Since being chosen third overall in the 2004 NFL Draft out of Pittsburgh, he has been on just four teams that reached the postseason, and during his career has caught touchdown passes from 12 different quarterbacks — many of whom were not all that highly thought of.
