Toronto cop to face disciplinary hearing after investigation sparked by video

first_imgTORONTO – A disciplinary hearing will be held for a Toronto police sergeant after a civilian oversight agency found there were grounds to believe he used excessive force in stomping on and repeatedly Tasering a handcuffed man during an arrest earlier this year.The Office of the Independent Police Review Director says Sgt. Eduardo Miranda was not justified in deploying his stun gun six times on a man who, on most of these occasions, was “prone face down on the ground and being physically controlled by four officers.”In a report into the January incident, the agency says Miranda’s decision to stomp on the man’s leg was “equally not justified as a response.”It further says there are grounds to believe the sergeant engaged in discreditable conduct when he directed other officers to interfere with a witness who was recording the arrest on his phone.The report says there are grounds to believe two other officers engaged in misconduct when they threatened to confiscate Waseem Khan’s phone and behaved in a manner meant to intimidate him, and that all the officers involved neglected their duty by failing to turn on their cruisers’ cameras and microphones.The investigation was triggered after Khan, who captured much of the incident on video, lodged a complaint with the oversight agency.Khan’s lawyer, Selwyn Pieters, says the findings against Miranda automatically require a disciplinary hearing, which has been scheduled for Sept. 26. It is unclear whether the remaining officers will also face a hearing, since they are accused of lesser offences, he said.Pieters said his client is pleased that the report confirmed his feeling that “something wasn’t right with what was taking place” that day.“It just shows the importance of what Waseem did on that day, to take his camera out on his cellphone and record that incident,” Pieters said. “Had he not done that, it would have been this civilian versus the police with no objective evidence.”The cellphone video shows several police officers standing by a man who is lying face down on the street. Khan can be heard saying an officer used a stun gun on the man. The video appears to show the same officer stomping on the back of the man’s leg.The video then shows the same officer looking in Khan’s direction and asking his colleagues to “get that guy out of my face please!”“I’m a witness,” Khan is heard saying. “I’m not obstructing the arrest. I’m not involved in the investigation.”A female officer walks toward Khan and says: “If you’re a witness, then we’re going to be seizing your cellphone.” A male officer also approaches Khan, looks at the camera and says, “he’s going to spit in your face, you’re going to get AIDS.”Toronto police apologized for the AIDS comment after the video surfaced.Khan has said he felt intimidated by the officers and offended by the comment about AIDS.The officers who approached Khan told the OIPRD they did not mean to intimidate him, with one officer saying he believed he had the authority to seize the phone, the report says.Miranda, meanwhile, said the man on the ground was “displaying aggressive behaviour” and that the Taser, combined with the blows to the upper leg, were appropriate responses, the document says. He told the agency the man being arrested had tried to bite one of the other officers, but recognized the officer was not injured and that the man did not appear to be moving in the video.The sergeant also denied trying to intimidate Khan, saying he was “concerned” for him, though he estimated Khan was about three metres away from the action.Toronto police could not immediately be reached for comment.Pieters said the officers’ behaviour raises concerns about the administration of justice.“How do you deploy a Taser six times within a space of minutes on a person who was, from the video, semi-conscious or unconscious, and then say the person was resisting arrest and was assaultive?” he said.“Certainly the video, together with their allegations against the man, brings the administration of justice into disrepute. It shows that the police will say whatever they want to put a man, to put a person before the courts.”last_img read more

Billy Joel Helps Nassau BOCES Long Island High School For The Arts

first_imgLegendary musician and Long Island native, Billy Joel will speak with students at the Hillwood Recital Hall in Tilles Center for the Performing Arts at LIU Post, on February 8, 2016, for an “Afternoon of Questions & Answers… And a Little Music” to raise awareness of the Nassau BOCES Long Island High School for the Arts (LIHSA) and encourage enrollment.The students will come from both LIHSA, the only public high school arts program that serves students from across Long Island, and Long Island University. Other attendees will include superintendents and prospective students.Joel, a strong supporter of the arts in public schools, wrote a letter in November 2015 to the Nassau BOCES Board expressing his support for LIHSA’s continuation. The Syosset-based arts program is funded by student tuition from public school districts. Enrollments have been declining for the last several years due to the New York State property tax levy cap.Good teachers have made an impact on Joel. “I went to public school on Long Island and I am grateful for the music program and my music teachers for helping provide me the tools for which I have based my career,” Joel wrote in the letter. “I understand that closing this school does not mean the end of music and arts programs on Long Island, but it does indicate our willingness to abandon a school that has been there for 40 years rather than build it up into something Long Island and New York State can be proud of.”Joel has donated $1 million to help the cause.He hopes that his support will bring awareness to the need for rigorous arts education options such as LIHSA. The afternoon promises to be freewheeling and fun-loving. Joel will be spinning yarns, playing music and offering snippets of advice to the aspiring musicians in the house.LIHSA instructors, who are all working professionals in the arts, focus on cultivating their students’ talents and building skills towards a career pathway in the arts. Major focus areas include dance, film, music, theatre and visual arts. Learn more at www.nassauboces.org/lihsa.last_img read more

Ministry of crab illegal

The government has reportedly said that the plush restaurant operated by Sri Lankan cricketers Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardena under the name ‘Ministry of Crab’ is illegal.According to The Sunday Times, President’s Secretary Lalith Weeratunga had told newspaper Editors in Colombo today that the restaurant was originally registered as “The Crab Corporation” but later changed its name after being launched at the food court of the Old Dutch Hospital. President Mahinda Rajapaksa had told the Editors that the media was already criticising him for having more than fifty ministries, “and now there is a Ministry of Crabs” also. Weeratunga has then said that according to the Registrar of Companies of the Western Province of Sri Lanka, operating the restaurant under the name “Ministry of Crab’ is illegal. read more

Broken arm leads to nightmare for Hamilton girl

What first appeared to be an innocent playground injury has turned into a year of surgeries for a nine-year old Hamilton girl. Madison Morris dislocated and fractured her elbow while playing on some monkey bars last August. Since her latest procedure, Madison’s arm has been locked at a 90 degree angle.“I was going to do a flip and I showed someone, but then I did a flip and my arm got caught,” she says.Her mother Krystal Randles, says at first it didn’t appear too serious. “When we took her for an x-ray they said just go over to the hospital they’ll pop it back in. We thought it would be a quick, easy 1, 2, 3 in.”Then, they heard the word “surgery”.“They put a pin in it and casted it. When they tool the cast off 6 weeks later it came right back out.”Randles says Madison went through six procedures in total at McMaster Children’s Hospital, including reconstructive surgery and hardware removal. Since her last operation in December, Madison’s elbow has been locked at a painful and uncomfortable 90 degree angle.While she doesn’t have a problem playing with the families puppies, the injury has presented other challenges.“Brushing my hair and eating and touching my shoulder, stuff like that.”According to Randles, 15 weeks of physiotherapy failed to work, and now doctors want to re-break the arm to help it heal. But Madison’s mom says that’s out of the question.Due to confidentiality the hospital won’t comment specifically on Madison’s case, but the Chief of Pediatric Surgery, Helene Flageole, says in some rare complex injuries multiple procedures can be necessary.“Usual practice would be if there is hardware that needs to be used to repair the injury, that hardware needs to be removed later on.”Flageole says children will often be administered an anesthetic to avoid discomfort. But after almost a year of procedures, Randles is now seeking an appointment with an occupational therapist. While Madison, just wants to move her arm again. read more

One in four unemployed

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Just over one in four people aged between 15 and 74 are now unemployed, according to jobless data released on Thursday. The unemployment rate crossed the 25 percent threshold in August, to reach 25.4 percent, according to the Hellenic Statistical Authority (Elstat). This represents a 0.6pt jump on the previous month and a full seven point increase on the same month last year, Elstat said, in its Labour Force Survey for August. Young people are hardest hit, with 58 percent of those under the age of 25 registered as without work, up from 45 percent a year ago. Unemployment remains higher among women (29 per cent) than men (22.7 per cent). In real terms, the data translates into a total of 1,267,595 persons without work, an increase of 36,597 people in one month alone. This means that since August of last year, 351,666 people have joined the dole queues, an increase of 38.4 per cent. The same data puts the number of people employed at 3,726,663 and the number of economically inactive people – meaning those without work but not seeking work – at 3,375,297. The regions of Epirus and Western Macedonia, where the jobless rate reaches 28.5 per cent, remains the country’s unemployment blackspot, while Crete (19.6 per cent) has replaced the Aegean for the lowest unemployment rate. At 25.9 per cent, the rate in Attica is slightly above the national average. Source: Athens News/dmculast_img read more

Gaming Disorder is Real Mental Condition And You May Have It

first_imgStay on target “Gaming disorder” sounds like an invented affliction parents appoint to kids they can’t tear away from the computer or TV screen.But, come 2018, the ailment may go from fiction to fact.Characterized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as “a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behavior,” the malady is as real as any addiction, including gambling.And, according to the beta draft of WHO’s 11th International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11), due out next year, it is an official medical condition. The formal description is as follows:“Gaming disorder is characterized by a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behavior (‘digital gaming’ or ‘video gaming’), which may be online (i.e. over the Internet) or offline, manifested by: 1) impaired control over gaming (e.g. onset, frequency, intensity, duration, termination, context); 2) increasing priority given to gaming to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other life interests and daily activities; and 3) continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences.“The behavior pattern is of sufficient severity to result in significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. The pattern of gaming behavior may be continuous or episodic and recurrent.“The gaming behavior and other features are normally evident over a period of at least 12 months in order for a diagnosis to be assigned, although the required duration may be shortened if all diagnostic requirements are met and symptoms are severe.”As emphasized on the ICD-11 website, this beta draft is NOT FINAL, and is updated on a daily basis. Gaming disorder, however, is likely to appear in the definitive list.“There is increasing and well-documented evidence of clinical relevance of these conditions and increasing demand for treatment in different parts of the world,” a WHO spokesman told Geek in an email.Most people rely on the Internet and a series of electronic devices every day—for work or pleasure. And while the increase in usage has “clear benefits,” the statement said, it also comes with drawbacks. Health problems as a result of excessive use have also been documented, sometimes with grave consequences.In an effort to bring awareness to this stranger-than-fiction issue, the World Health Organization incorporated “gaming disorder” into ICD—”the basis for identification of health trends and statistics globally,” according to the statement.“It is used by medical practitioners around the world to diagnose conditions and by researchers to categorize conditions,” the spokesman continued. “Inclusion of a disorder in ICD is a consideration which countries take into account when making decisions on provision of healthcare and allocation of resources for prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation.” Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.center_img These Razer Cases Will Keep Your iPhone 11 Cool While GamingCovert Dock for Nintendo Switch Fits in Your Pocket last_img read more

Gotze is enjoying his time at Dortmund

first_imgThe German attacking midfielder returned to Borussia Dortmund after three years with Bayern Munich and he’s loving itBorussia Dortmund has seen many changes in the past months, and for Mario Gotze, these changes are great.“Personally, I didn’t expect things to be going so well because these things take time with a new coach, new players, and with the development needed,” he told the Bundesliga website.“You never quite know what is going to happen, but this makes it even better that things have gone so well. Of course, we know that not everything is perfect and that we won a few games with a bit of luck.”Jadon SanchoMerson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“It’s nevertheless nice to have picked up the points and to get through our Champions League group. It’s great,” he added.“The coach and the whole team are doing their bit. The opposition and how they are set up also play a role and how they perform in the situation.”“There are many factors that play a role and you also need a certain amount of luck to win these games,” he explained.“I think we are very unpredictable in games and our substitutes also score a lot of goals.”last_img read more

Economic Impact of WrightPatt Surpasses 4B

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR Wright-Patterson Air Force Base generated a $4.3 billion economic impact and employed more than 27,500 workers in fiscal 2014, representing slight increases over the previous analysis, officials said Tuesday.The increase in those two figures, though, stems from a decision by analysts to expand the survey area from five to 14 counties in western Ohio, reported the Dayton Daily News.“The assessment last year was that they were missing some employees who travel from further out than just directly the counties that border the base,” said base spokesman Daryl Mayer.The previous survey determined the installation had a $4 billion annual impact and a population of about 26,200 workers from five surrounding counties.Wright-Patterson is the largest single-site employer in Ohio, with a payroll reaching $2.26 billion, and expenditures for construction, operations and service contracts exceeding $664 million, reported the Dayton Business Journal. Military personnel on base support almost 14,000 family members.“We will continue to be good stewards as we strengthen and build our community relationships for both our airmen and our Miami Valley family,” said Col. John Devillier, commander of the 88th Air Base Wing. “Wright-Patt is the community and the community is Wright-Patt,” Devillier said.last_img read more

Investigation continues into midair plane collision near Russian Mission

first_imgWreckage of one of the collided planes. (Photo via Alaska State Troopers)The investigation continues into a mid-air plane collision northwest of Russian Mission on Wednesday that left no survivors.Listen nowAlaska State Troopers and investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board are heading to the crash sites today.“Our focus is on body recovery efforts,” said Megan Peters, public information officer for the Alaska State Troopers.“The NTSB is the agency that actually investigates the cause and circumstances of aircraft crashes.”The recovered bodies will be sent to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Anchorage. Alaska State Troopers have identified the two aircraft and the five victims.The Renfro’s Alaskan Adventure Super Cub flying from Bethel to a hunting camp carried pilot Zach Justin Babat of Montana, 44, and passenger Jeff Thomas Burruss of Haines, 40.The RAVN C208 Caravan flying from Russian Mission to Marshall carried pilot Harry Wrase of Wasilla, 48, and passengers Aaron Jay Minock of Russian Mission, 21, and Steven Paul Andrew of Kenai, 32.NTSB Alaska Chief Clint Johnson says the planes crashed about a half mile away from each other across a terrain of rolling hills and thick alders. Two investigators reached the Caravan crash site Wednesday evening just before dark.“The briefing I was able to get from Mike Hodges, who was on scene briefly last night, indicated that the airplane is badly fragmented. Didn’t go into any other details,” Johnson said Thursday morning.With the hike through the dense brush and rapid loss of daylight, the investigators were only at the site a short while.“What they were able to do,” Johnson said, “was get an idea of what equipment is going to be needed to do their job.”NTSB investigators are reviewing the limited radar data available from the area. At this point, how the planes collided is unknown.“Keep in mind that where this accident or mid-air collision took place is in what we refer to as uncontrolled air space where they’re not under control of any air traffic control, or ATC, services at the time,” Johnson said. There is what we refer to as ADSB, which is a type of tracking system. But nevertheless, this accident took place in uncontrolled airspace, so it’s incumbent on each one of the pilots, each one of the flight crews to see and avoid the other airplane.”Kristen DiMartino was one of the last people to see Wrase, the RAVN pilot, and one of his passengers alive Wednesday. She was one of the three people on the RAVN plane as it flew from Bethel to Russian Mission and remembers Wrase and the other passenger admiring the aircraft.“I feel like I’m still in shock, because I’ll never get that image out of them being so happy.” DiMartino said. “They were so happy. They were just talking about the plane and literally saying how awesome it was, and then I find out they’re gone.”The plane dropped DiMartino off in Russian Mission and picked up another passenger before flying north to Marshall. The plane never reached its destination.Renfro’s Alaskan Adventures says they are not flying Thursday.Behavioral health counselors with the Yukon Kuskokwim Health Corporation are standing by at village clinics across the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta and in Bethel to talk with family members and loved ones of the victims. Anyone who would like to call and speak with an emergency clinician can call 907-543-6499.last_img read more
