Protests erupt after Anaheim, Calif., cop grabs teen, fires weapon

first_imgLos Angeles – A mixed group of Anaheim students were walking home from school on Feb. 21, when an off-duty Los Angeles police officer verbally harassed one of them for allegedly walking on his lawn and then grabbed 13-year-old Christian Dorscht. Videos of the incident show the white officer, Kevin Ferguson, who is at least a head taller than the youth, grabbing Dorscht’s body and clothing and dragging him toward his house as the student attempts to break away. (tinyurl.com/hz72z7z)Dorscht says the off-duty cop hit him in the genitals while dragging him away from his friends. He asked Ferguson to show proof of his claim that he was a police officer and informed his attacker he would sue him, which the cop then claimed was a threat to “shoot” him. During the kidnapping, Dorscht’s resolute school companions did not abandon him. They protected their friend, calling out, “Let him go!” and recording the belligerent officer cursing at them.One video shows that as Ferguson attempted to make away with Dorscht, dragging him through the yard, two of the student’s friends made a gallant rescue effort: one child attempted to pull the officer’s hand off Dorscht while another rushed him, trying to push him away. At this point, Ferguson pulled out his gun and discharged it, only inches away from several children.Meanwhile, the police were called in. Although this was an active hostage situation involving children, when the LAPD arrived they did not arrest Ferguson, who was still holding onto Dorscht. Instead, they arrested two of the children.After this disgusting incident, hundreds of protesters claiming child abuse and endangerment, child abduction, and illegal use of a firearm and assault, came out to support Dorscht the next day, Feb. 22. They openly condemned the officer’s reckless actions and demanded justice from the historically racist and violent Anaheim Police Department. Police arrested 24 of the protesters.The only thing done to the officer was to place him on leave. More than a week later, no charges have yet been pressed against him.Damion Ramirez from the Young Survivors — Legacy Support Network was there to support the action. “The power of united people that day was overwhelming. Every single one of us rushed to defend a child who could be our own son, brother, friend. We in the movement to end police terror were inspired by the courage it took for a young Black brother to risk his life to save a young Brown brother from a stranger bullying him in the manner of every cop who is the problem,” said Ramirez.A YouFund campaign to help cover Dorscht’s legal fees has raised almost double its expected goal and his family plans to sue Ferguson for attempted abduction. Dorscht suffered injuries to his neck, head and face while being dragged away by Ferguson.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Palestinian journalists union admits error concerning ban on photos of armed children

first_img RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes News PalestineMiddle East – North Africa Follow the news on Palestine News May 16, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders called today on the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate to immediately reverse its ban on local and foreign journalists taking pictures of children carrying weapons or wearing military uniforms. The union, announcing the measure yesterday throughout the Palestinian occupied territories, said such pictures were “a flagrant violation of the rights of children.”But Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard called the ban “a misguided way to protect children aimed at misinforming the world about the real situation in the Occupied Territories.” He added: “It is also very odd, to say the least, for a journalists’ union to forbid journalists to do their job.”The union said any Palestinian journalist filming or photographing armed para-military children or masked men would face sanctions by the union, since such pictures “serve Israel” and its “campaign against our just (Palestinian) cause.” It said Palestinians working for foreign media should ensure their foreign colleagues respected the ban.The union called on Palestinian groups to stop using children in military uniform and masked men in their activities and said it would boycott rallies where they appeared. A cameraman and a photographer from Reuters had their pictures seized in Bethlehem on 1 April while they were covering the killing of a man suspected of collaborating with Israel. Organisation Israel now holding 13 Palestinian journalists May 28, 2021 Find out more The Palestinian Journalists’ Syndicate (PJS) in the Palestinian Occupied territories, today reversed its much-criticised decision of three days ago to ban local and foreign journalists taking pictures of masked gunmen or of children carrying weapons or wearing military uniforms in street demonstrations.The PJS Council said it knew nothing about the statement, “which we condemn. It did not in any way represent the position of the PJS, which honours the role of media personnel,” said the union’s leader, Naeem Tubasi. He said the statement had been issued by a senior member of the PJS acting on his own and had not been authorised by the union.The Palestinian information ministry had also condemned the ban, saying it “did not reflect the position of the Palestinian National Authority.”_____08.26 – Palestinian journalists’ union bans photos of armed children PalestineMiddle East – North Africa Receive email alerts RSF_en August 27, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Palestinian journalists union admits error concerning ban on photos of armed children News June 3, 2021 Find out more to go further News Help by sharing this information WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalistslast_img read more

Several suspects arrested for murders of two Matichon journalists but authorities asked to try harder

first_img Reporters Without Borders hails the arrests of suspects in the fatal shootings of two provincial correspondents of the Bangkok-based daily Matichon – Jaruek Rangcharoen on 27 September in the central province of Suphan Buri and Ahiwat Chainurat on 1 August in the southern city of Nakhon Si Thammarat.“The arrests of two suspects in each of these murders suggest that the police are making some progress,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is nonetheless vital that the authorities step up their investigations into all four of the murders of journalists that have taken place this year, in order to identify the masterminds and bring them to justice. The government must not let impunity take hold in Thailand.”The two suspects in the Rangcharoen case, including the alleged gunman, were arrested on 1 November. One of them, 37-year-old Manit Khiewwan, has reportedly confessed to driving the motorcycle used by the gunman for the shooting and has participated in a reconstruction of the murder.The other suspect, Kittisak Poolkerd, 40, a member of the district administrative committee of Don Chedi (in Suphan Buri province), has denied any role in the murder although Khiewwan has identified him as the gunman.In the Chainurat investigation, police examined the contents of his computer and found information about corruption stories he was working on. Two suspects have been arrested – the alleged gunman and the person who allegedly drove the motorcycle used in the shooting. But the police claim they still do not have enough evidence to arrest any suspected masterminds.Both Rangcharoen and Chainurat had written about local corruption.In a 15 October editorial about the two murders, Matichon deputy editor Tawesak Bhutton wrote: “The murders of these two journalists in such a short space of time pose a challenge to the state and a grave threat to media freedom (…) It is perhaps a sign that the country is heading toward dark times.” to go further Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom News News August 21, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information May 12, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders hails the arrests of suspects in the fatal shootings of two provincial correspondents of the Bangkok-based daily Matichon. “It is nonetheless vital that the authorities step up their investigations into all four of the murders of journalists that have taken place this year”, Reporters Without Borders said.

The third offering was originally announced in April at $720 million but shortly increased up to $1.01 billion due to market demand. Freddie Mac expects to make eight STACR offerings overall in 2015.The 2015-DNA2 offering will be Freddie Mac’s second offering in which losses will be allocated based on actual losses realized on the related reference obligations rather using a fixed severity approach to allocate losses (the first such transaction for Freddie Mac occurred in May, priced at $425.6 million). The reference pool of single-family mortgages for Series 2015-DNA2 includes loans originated from August to November 2014 with an aggregate UPB of more than $31.9 billion.Co-lead managers and joint bookrunners for the transaction are Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith, and JPMorgan Securities. The approximate date for when the offering will settle is June 29, 2015. Freddie Mac holds the senior loss risk in the reference pool as well as a portion of the risk for Class M-1, M-2, M-3 and the first loss Class B tranche; the M-1, M-2, M-3, and MACR classes are rated by Kroll Bond Ratings Agency and Moody’s.Freddie Mac transfers a portion of credit risk on certain single-family loans to private investors using the STACR program and has led the market in introducing new risk-sharing initiatives in the last two years. Since initiating the program in 2013, Freddie Mac has laid off a portion of credit risk on more than $281 billion in unpaid principal balance for single-family mortgages through 13 STACR offerings and seven Agency Credit Insurance Structure (ACIS) transactions. More than one million loans have been represented in those transactions.The STACR offerings have received two major awards in the last two years; apart from Friday’s announcement of receiving the RMBS Deal of the Year award from GlobalCapital, STACR received the Global Structured Deal of the Year Award from GlobalCapital’s parent company, Euromoney, in 2014. Kevin Palmer, VP of Credit Risk Transfer at Freddie Mac, said the Enterprise is “proud of our role in leading market innovations that return value to the nation and move housing forward.” Related Articles Previous: HUD Widely Praised For Amending HECM Program, Helping Seniors Avoid Foreclosure Next: Freddie Mac Lays Out Importance of a Consumer’s Credit Score in Homebuying Tagged with: Credit Risk Transfer Freddie Mac RMBS STACR Structured Agency Credit Risk Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Secondary Market Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago June 15, 2015 1,049 Views The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days agolast_img read more
