Florida Sheriffs Used SWAT-Style Attack to Enforce Barbershop License

Sun Sentinel 

Though he defended the actions of his deputies during a series of unorthodox inspections of barbershops in the Pine Hills area, Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings (who is Black and that is why the media feel strong about this story) said today there was "no question we could have done things better."

 

In two sweeps on Aug. 21 and Sept. 17, and a smaller October operation, 35 people were arrested on a misdemeanor charge of "barbering without an active license," records show. Demings said if his agency could conduct the operations over again, deputies would issue orders to appear in court, akin to traffic citations, rather than take people to jail for cutting hair.

 

"I would prefer that we not make custodial arrests for these minor violations," he said.

 

Meanwhile, Demings and other officials questioned the accuracy of statements made by customers and barbers about the operations in an Orlando Sentinel story this week. Many had described the joint operations as overly theatrical raids, while deputies described their entry into the shops as "low-key."

 

Demings, along with Capt. Dave Ogden, Cpl. Keith Vidler, Lt. Ron Chapman and other deputies involved in the operations, met with reporters this afternoon to address the series of inspections of Pine Hills-area barbershops conducted by the Sheriff's Office in conjunction with a state inspection agency.

License plate scanner networks capture millions of vehicles' movements across the US

CLG

A rapidly expanding digital network that uses cameras mounted to traffic signals and police cruisers captures the movements of millions of vehicles across the U.S., regardless of whether the drivers are being investigated by law enforcement. The license plate scanning systems have multiplied across the U.S. over the last decade, funded largely by Homeland Security grants, and judges recently have upheld authorities' rights to keep details from hundreds of millions of scans a secret from the public.

Oil prices rise in Asia after Obama vow to strike ISIL in Syria

Press TV

Oil prices have increased in Asia one day after US President Barack Obama pledged to expand its bombing campaign against ISIL terrorists and launch airstrikes against the Takfiri cult in Syria.

On Thursday, US benchmark West Texas Intermediate (WTI) for October delivery gained 16 cents to USD 91.83, while Brent crude for October rose14 cents to USD 98.18 in mid-morning trade.

In a televised speech delivered from the White House on Wednesday, Obama said that the United States was prepared to strike the Takfiri terrorist group in Syria, vowing to expand operations against the terrorist cult in neighboring Iraq.

“I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria, as well as Iraq,” said Obama.

Sierra Leone begins second day of Ebola shutdown

Press TV

Sierra Leone has observed the second day of a 72-hour nationwide shutdown aimed at preventing the spread of the deadly Ebola virus in the country.

Most people in Sierra Leone stayed indoors for the second day on Saturday with the exception of health professionals and security forces, while some 30,000 volunteers are going door-to-door to educate people on the virus.

However, the Freetown government has come under criticism over the shutdown, which critics say is a poorly planned publicity stunt. Some observers have also expressed concern over the quality of information being given out.

“While the supervisors were well trained, the visiting teams to families in some parts in the Western Area had poor training and could not deliver the information properly,” said Abubakarr Kamara, from the Health for All Coalition, a local charity.

Despite criticism from some health professionals that the shutdown could backfire, Sierra Leone has insisted on going ahead with the measure.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), at least 2,630 people have died of Ebola so far, while over 5,350 others are infected. [MORE]

Philadelphia District Attorney Agrees to New Trial for Black Man Who Served 22 Years for a Murder DNA Proves Was Committed by Another Man

Innocence Blog

After initially denying requests for a new trial, the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office today announced that it will agree to a new trial for Anthony Wright. New DNA testing of the rape kit identified a man with a lengthy criminal record as the real perpetrator.
 
Wright, of Pennsylvania, was convicted of the rape and murder of an elderly woman. Today, post-conviction DNA testing excludes him as the source and points to another suspect.
 
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Wright, who has been serving a life sentence since 1993, has maintained his innocence since 1991 and said he was working a construction job when the crime was committed. He also maintains that his confession was coerced by a police officer who threatened him while he was handcuffed to a chair.
 
During the investigation, a rape kit was taken of the victim’s corpse and police claim to have collected blood stained clothes from Wright’s house. Recent DNA testing of the rape kit has revealed that Ronnie Byrd, a career criminal and crack user who was living in an abandoned house next door to the victim’s was the real perpetrator. DNA testing of the pants reveals that they did not belong to Wright but rather had been worn by the victim. Wright will appear in court on Monday before Common Pleas Court Judge D. Webster Keogh who, given the prosecution’s consent, is expected to vacate the conviction and grant Wright a new trial.

Ebola to slash growth, knock billions off fragile West African economies

Aljazeera

The outbreak of Ebola that is ravaging parts of West Africa could cost affected nations billions of dollars and slash economic growth rates by double digits if the virus’ surge continues across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, the World Bank estimated Wednesday in a new report.

In addition to the human toll — over 2,400 deaths have been reported in the past five months — economists have warned that the outbreak is draining public finances. It’s also encouraging aversive behavior, such as avoidance of travel and trade for fear of contagion, which could incur lasting economic damage in fragile postconflict economies.

“The primary cost of this tragic outbreak is in human lives and suffering, which has already been terribly difficult to bear,” World Bank president Jim Yong Kim said in a statement that accompanied the report. “But our findings make it clear that the sooner we get an adequate containment response and decrease the level of fear and uncertainty, the faster we can blunt Ebola’s economic impact.”

According to the analysis, the worst-case scenario could see economic growth in these three countries slashed by 2.3 to 11.7 percentage points in 2015, potentially plunging countries into a deep contraction. Should the international community mount a more concerted campaign to help contain the virus, however, those estimates would shrink closer to 1 to 4.2 percentage points.

The report comes a day after the U.N. announced that it needed to raise $1 billion to effectively contain the virus, treat its victims and prevent much-feared spillover into other countries. On Tuesday, President Barack Obama announced he would send 3,000 troops to the region to help stem the spread of the contagious disease and build health facilities to treat victims.

Watch the Racial Geography of D.C. Mortgages Change Over Time

City Paper

The map above shows the racial and ethnic breakdown of mortgage loans issued across the city in 2001. Things have changed since then, as tighter mortgage lending during and following the recession constrained the loans available to minority borrowers. According to an Urban Institute report out today, the percentage of home loans made to black and Hispanic households nationwide dropped from 23 percent in 2005 to 12 percent in 2012.
