Law Enforcement Offers Advice on How to Drink Responsibly During New Years

first_imgLaw Enforcement Offers Advice on How to Drink Responsibly During New YearsDECEMBER 31ST, 2018 LINDSAY NEALEVANSVILLE, GIBSON COUNTY, INDIANA, NEWBURGH, POSEY COUNTY, WARRICK COUNTYMany people will take part in some type of celebration to ring in 2019 and alcohol is often a part of those celebrations. While law enforcement is aware people will be drinking, they say that increases the awareness of those who are going out to celebrate.“For some reason, most people are more responsible on New Year’s eve I think its basically because their awareness level is so much higher. So for that reason we really have very few problems on new years eve,” said Indiana State Trooper Todd Ringle. He says they do expect to encounter people who made the choice to drink and drive.“You know last year during the new years eve and the first part of the new years day statewide we had 50 crashes that were alcohol-related from those crashes 17 people were injured but we didn’t have any fatalities,” said Ringle.Bars in the Tri-State like Lamasco are taking precaution when it comes to those coming out on new years eve with the intention of indulging in drinking.“We’re just gonna be extra diligent on what we are serving people, we’ll be paying closer attention. People may have gone out to dinner and started celebrating a little early, so they may have had a couple of drinks before they came here,” said Lamasco Manager Chris Passage.“If you know you are gonna be drinking make sure you have a plan before you take that first drink. right now we have uber, lift…Logan’s Promise which is a great organization that if you call them they will come to wherever you’re at. They will make sure you get home safe, so there’s a lot of different options for people to do. There is no reason for anyone to drink and drive,” said Ringle.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Rivers receives Award of Appreciation

first_imgAssistant Director of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies Holly Rivers received the 11th College of Arts and Letters’ Award of Appreciation from Dean John T. McGreevy on Sept. 10.Rivers received the award for her 12 years of work at the Kellogg Institute, where she has primarily served as an advisor to undergraduates applying to the Institute’s student programs. McGreevy read a laudatory recommendation letter from a faculty member at the award ceremony, according to a Kellogg Institute press release.“Holly is the life force of an astonishing array of undergraduate programming at the Kellogg Institute,” McGreevy read. “She works endlessly to innovate new and better programs for undergraduates.”McGreevy’s predecessor as dean, Mark Roche, created the College of Arts and Letters Award of Appreciation 14 years ago. McGreevy said the award is typically given to someone who assists in the mission of the College of Arts and Letters.McGreevy cited Rivers’s efforts as being crucial to helping students in the College of Arts and Letters obtain opportunities through the Kellogg Institute.“[Rivers] has helped assist students with opportunities in undergraduate research going towards a senior thesis, study abroad and sometimes even language learning,” McGreevy said.“It is much more likely than it was a generation ago that students will travel or work outside of the United States,” McGreevy said. “And we are trying to prepare them for that environment.”Rivers cited the recent deluge of congratulations from her fellow faculty as being one of the best parts about receiving the award.“It definitely made my summer one of the nicest I’ve had working here,” Rivers said about winning the award.In addition to Rivers’s advising work, she also travels every summer to many of the different locations in which the Kellogg Institute has programs.“Initially, nearly all of the students in the International Studies program were in the College of Arts and Letters. Over time, the Institute has been receiving students from other colleges,” Rivers said.Rivers also noted how the majority of students in the Institute’s programs are political science majors, but recently students studying through the Institute have had varying majors, such as business and pre-professional.Rivers said becoming involved in the Kellogg Institute’s programs is a great advantage to Notre Dame students entering the job market.“Many people are graduating with a degree. Students going through the Kellogg Institute show that they take the initiative,” Rivers said. “They show that they are flexible by learning languages and immersing themselves within a new culture.”Tags: Award of Appreciation, College of Arts & Letters, Holly Rivers, John McGreevy, Kellogg Institutelast_img read more

Chautauqua County DA Says Judges Need More Bail Discretion

first_imgFile image by Justin Gould/ WNY News Now.MAYVILLE — Chautauqua County District Attorney Patrick Swanson says modifications to the New York State bail reform statue are not enough to fix the issues previously discussed by law enforcement and prosecutors around the state.Swanson tells WNYNewsNow that the changes technically began Thursday throughout the state. He says he believes the changes are a good start, but more action needs to be taken.“There are some additions to what we can get bail on, compared to what the law was, that I would say are positive developments,” Swanson said. “But, ultimately, my hope is, somewhere down the road, that the realization that we need to give the judges discretion back, is what we really need.”Swanson says that any crime that is alleged to have caused the death of another individual now qualifies for bail as part of the statute. The prosecutor adds that includes second-degree manslaughter, which was previously ineligible for bail as part of the original statute that took effect Jan. 1.

Tax-free holiday bargains

first_imgBy Sharon OmahenUniversity of GeorgiaGeorgia’s tax free holidays are Aug. 2-5, and thousands of parents will no doubt take advantage of the tax savings. University of Georgia financial experts say you can save a lot more than the 6-percent state sales tax by taking advantage of the sales tax holidays.Retailers that sell clothes, computers and other back-to-school items now say the tax-free holiday weekend is as big or bigger than the after-Thanksgiving sales, said Michael Rupured, a UGA Cooperative Extension consumer economics specialist. Competition for your shopping dollars on the tax-free days means that many retailers will offer special sales during the week.”The only reason not to buy your needed items during the tax-free days would be your personal finances,” Rupured said. “If you have to pay with a credit card instead of cash, the interest on your credit card balance can be enough to offset any savings.”Rupured offers some tips to help you to save time, money and frustration:Know what is and isn’t exempt. During the tax-free holiday Aug. 2-5, school supplies are tax exempt if they cost $20 or less per item. So are clothing and footwear at $100 or less per item. But accessories such as purses, jewelry or watches aren’t.A single purchase of $1,500 or less of personal computers and related items is tax exempt. But if it’s more than $1,500, it isn’t tax exempt. Get more details at the Georgia Department of Revenue Web site (www.etax.dor.ga.gov/salestax/holiday).Do a little research. Besides knowing what items are tax exempt, check advertisements and flyers for sales. Look for manufacturers’ coupons for items you plan to buy.If you want to buy a computer, find out which features and options best meet your needs. Compare prices from different stores, too.Shop with a list. Write down what clothing and school supplies each child needs. If computer needs are on your list, you may want to buy hardware at one place and software and other accessories at another to avoid going over the $1,500 limit.With gas prices as high as they are, it may also make sense to plan the route you will take.Leave the kids at home. Most of the time, you’ll spend less if they’re not around.If you need to bring a child along to try on clothing, consider making two trips. Go by yourself to buy school supplies, computers and accessories. And while you’re out, note the best clothing sales and return to those stores later with the kids.Bring plenty of patience and a positive attitude. The stores, parking lots and roads around shopping centers will be crowded. Checkout lines will be long.If you don’t enjoy shopping, the sales tax holiday weekend might be a good time to stay home.(Sharon Omahen is a news editor with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)last_img read more

Police Crack Down on São Paulo Slum After Murders

first_img Brazilian police have launched a major anti-crime operation at a huge slum following at least 40 murders in the São Paulo area, including the apparent execution of several police officers. “Operation Saturation,” which kicked off on October 29 in and around the city’s southern Paraisopolis favela of 80,000 people is aimed at “choking off soaring drug trafficking” and reduce the number of robberies and thefts, said State Secretary for Public Security Antonio Ferreira Pinto. Some 600 heavily-armed members of the state Military Police’s shock battalion – a strategic quick-reaction force – have been deployed to comb the area, adjacent to the posh Morumbi district. “The objective is to fight organized crime, destroy its structure,” Major Alexandre Gasparian, who supervises the operation, told AFP at his command post outside the Morumbi stadium early on October 30. He said the crackdown would last for an “undetermined period of time” and would be extended to other districts of this huge metropolis of 20 million people that is also Brazil’s business capital. On October 29 alone, at least 10 people were gunned down in São Paulo and another in nearby São Bernardo do Campo, most of them by assailants in cars or on motorcyles. In September, the number of area murders jumped to 144, up from 71 during the same month last year, and at least 40 have died in shootings since October 25, according to state public security figures. And more than 80 police officers have been executed in the region this year, most of them ambushed while off duty. Many of these police killings have been followed by the indiscriminate shooting deaths of suspected drug traffickers or robbers, which families of the victims claim, without proof, were retaliation by military police. Gasparian told AFP that since the operation began, police arrested two people, seized 125 kilograms of marijuana, 10 kilograms of cocaine, 50 packs of synthetic drugs and five illegal firearms. By the following morning, it was business as usual on Rua Doutor Laerte Setubal, the main avenue in Paraisopolis, as military police manned 12 checkpoints in the favela. The slum is a beehive of construction activity as homes are being upgraded in a clear sign of rising prosperity among residents. “We don’t have any major problems here. It’s safe. There is even dancing at night: Funk, Pagode, Samba. You won’t get into trouble unless you are really looking for it,” said Valeria Silva, 30. By Dialogo November 01, 2012last_img read more

World Cup: New Brazilian police prepare for PCC attacks

first_img The announcement was made a week after the regional public prosecutor disclosed that a lengthy investigation revealed that the PCC was planning to carry out attacks on Alckmin, other elected officials, and police agents during the World Cup, which will take place in Brazil in July 2014. The PCC also allegedly planned to attack political leaders during the presidential campaign. The presidential election is scheduled for October 2014. President Dilma Rousseff is planning on seeking re-election. The PCC has committed a number of highly-publicized violent attacks in recent years: • In June 2013, the PCC allegedly killed four men suspected of taking the life of Brayan Yanarico Capcha, 5, a Bolivian child who was shot to death in São Paulo. PCC leaders reportedly ordered the four men killed for violating the “code” of the organization. • Over the span of several months in 2012, PCC operatives killed 106 agents of the São Paulo militarized police force. • In May 2006, PCC operatives launched a series of attacks on police and public buses throughout the state. The attacks killed 300 people. Police from the states of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro are joining forces to battle the First Command of Capital (PCC) organized crime group, which is allegedly planning to attack elected officials and security forces during the 2014 World Cup, authorities said. Military police and state civil police from both states are forming a task force to gather intelligence on the PCC, to disrupt the organized crime group’s operations, and to capture its key leaders and operatives. São Paulo Governer Geraldo Alckmin announced the creation of the task force on Oct. 14, 2013. The governor announced the security initiative after an emergency meeting involving Alckmin, Secretary of Public Security Fernando Grella, Secretary of Prison Administration Lourival Gomes, and the commanders of the Civil and Military Police (MP). “I want to bring peace to the people by letting them know that the police are taking action and all measures are being taken,” Alckmin said. “Things are going to get ugly for them (PCC command). However, we will not be intimidated. Our obligation is to look after the public interest, to fight against crime.” A common problem GAECO investigation Retaliation by the PCC There are 200,000 inmates in Brazil’s state prisons. About 90 percent of them are loyal to the PCC, according to the GAECO investigation. The PCC was formed by prison inmates in the 1990s. The founders of the group initially demanded better prison conditions. The organization branched out to drug trafficking and extortion. Today, the PCC is one of the largest drug trafficking organizations in Brazil. Authorities estimate that the PCC generates about $3.5 (USD) million a month from its drug trafficking business. The PCC is suspected of generating another $1 million a month from other criminal enterprises, such as illegal gambling. The PCC operates in 22 of the 27 Brazilian states, as well as in Bolivia and Paraguay. However, the PCC has not been able to establish a presence in Rio de Janeiro. Another organized crime group, the Red Command, traffics drugs in Rio de Janeiro. The PCC obtains drugs from Brazilian drug traffickers Wilson Roberto Cuba, who is known as “Gruñón;” Rodrigo Felicio, known as “Tiquinho;” and Claudio Marcos Almeida, who is also known as “Django.” The PCC also obtains drugs from Paraguayan drug kingpin Carlos Antonio Caballero, who is known as “Capilo.” The PCC has about 8,000 members in the the state of São Paulo, of which 6,000 are serving prison sentences, according to Folha de São Paulo. The PCC has thousands of members throughout the country. From prison, PCC leaders use cell phones to direct operatives to carry out assassinations, buy weapons and tons of cocaine, and attack security forces. Alckmin recently announced plans to install mobile phone signal blockers in 23 prisons throughout São Paulo. State civil and militarized police will rely on intelligence to disrupt the criminal schemes of the PCC. It is important that security forces from São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro work together, since the PCC comprises a common threat to both states, said Carlos Mendoza Mora, director of Strategic Projects Consulting, a private security company. The two security forces will complement each other, Mendoza Mora said. The Military Police are the uniformed officers who patrol neighborhoods, while detectives assigned to the Civilian Police wear plain clothes and conduct criminal investigations, the security analyst said. “Collaborative efforts provide an aspect of both stronger coverage and legal investigations,” Mendoza Mora said. “Brazilian authorities are strengthening their intelligence mechanisms through precise operations to obtain specific information and stay a step ahead of potential threats.” PCC plans World Cup attacks center_img The regional public prosecutor’s investigation revealed evidence that the PCC is planning to launch attacks during the World Cup and the presidential election campaign as retaliation for the possible transfer of as many as 32 PCC leaders from maximum security prisons in São Paulo, which are known as the Differentiated Disciplinary Regime (RDD). In October 2013, a court in São Paulo ordered PCC a high-ranking PCC leader, Paulo Cezar Souza Nascimento Junior, who is known as “Paulinho Neblina”, to be transferred to a stricter maximum-security prison. Prison officials said they expect to transfer other PCC leaders to maximum-security facilities. Among the prisoners who may be transferred to an RDD facility is the leader of the PCC, Marco Willians Herbas Camacho, who is known as “Marcola.” He is currently serving a 44-year prison term. Massive attacks PCC violence By Dialogo November 21, 2013 The investigation was conducted by the Special Action Group for the Repression of Organized Crime (GAECO) of the Regional Public Prosecutor’s Office, consisting of 23 public prosecutors. GAECO wiretapped some of the incarcerated PCC leaders and operatives, interviewed witnesses, and reviewed court documents. GAECO also reviewed police reports written about the seizures of drugs and weapons from PCC operatives who were not incarcerated. The GAECO investigation is now the most comprehensive law enforcement archive of the organized crime group. The investigation was carried out over a three-year span, authorities said. The investigation focused on the criminal activities and plans of 175 PCC leaders and operatives. Most of the PCC members under investigation are already incarcerated in prisons in São Paulo. In addition to attacking political leaders and police agents, the PCC allegedly planned to try to break some PCC members out of prison, according to O Estado de São Paul. PCC criminal enterprises Brazilian security forces should remain vigilant when it comes to the PCC, security analyst Mendoza Mora said. The PCC “is a criminal group that is capable of carrying out massive attacks. The risk is latent,” Mendoza Mora said. “They are experts at generating fear to try to restrict the operations of the state and delay the mobilization of their leaders on criminal charges who have less room for maneuver.” The PCC usually targets security forces conducting patrols or intelligence activities, he added. “Brazilian authorities are strengthening their intelligence mechanisms through precise operations to obtain specific information and stay a step ahead of potential threats,” Mendoza Mora said. “Things are going to get ugly for them (PCC command). However, we will not be intimidated. Our obligation is to look after the public interest, to fight against crime,” Alckmin said.last_img read more

European Union Sanctions 7 Other Officials under Maduro in Venezuela

first_imgBy Voice of America October 17, 2019 The European Union (EU) said on September 27 that it will continue to impose new economic sanctions on the Nicolás Maduro regime in Venezuela, after announcing measures against seven other officials under his authority.The announcement marks a more severe tone by the European bloc, which until now has focused more on mediating peace talks.“This serious situation… cannot be ignored,” said the EU in a press release. It also referred to the economic and political crisis in Venezuela, amid hyperinflation and a food shortage.“The EU confirms it is prepared to work on further targeted measures to promote that negotiated transition,” the bloc said.Recent sanctions target seven members of Venezuela’s security and intelligence services, who are accused of being involved in torture and other human rights violations.Measures include freezing assets and travel bans to the bloc’s countries. Of the seven sanctioned officials, four are believed to be connected to the death of Lieutenant Commander Rafael Acosta Arévalo, a Venezuelan Navy service member who died in custody under the Maduro regime’s intelligence services.“The regional impact of the crisis is unprecedented, with serious risks for regional stability,” said High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini.The EU has already sanctioned 25 people in response to the Venezuelan crisis, including the officials designated on September 27.Mogherini said these measures might soften if progress is noted.last_img read more

‘Flood Wall Street’ Protestors Arrested As NYPD Protects Wall Street

first_imgAs marchers stormed the corner of Wall Street they clashed with dozens of officers, resulting in at least one arrest as the NYPD held its ground protecting the financial and corporate global stronghold. “We’ll be back,” smiled one protestor as police led him away around 8 p.m. Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Nearly 100 ‘Flood Wall Street‘ protestors were arrested Monday night while peacefully demonstrating in a mass sit-in at the intersection of Wall Street and Broadway when teams of New York Police Department officers blocked their route to the New York Stock Exchange.The activists—ranging from Occupy Wall Street members to environmentalists leftover from the prior day’s ‘People’s Climate March’ to first-time demonstrators—were part of a larger contingent that rallied in Battery Park in the morning before marching en masse throughout Lower Manhattan’s financial district, the bastion of what they deem “climate profiteers.”Holding signs and singing such group chants as “This is what democracy looks like!” and “Whose street? Our street!?” the occupiers spent several hours vocalizing and discussing their grievances with the financial institutions who they say are responsible for the Earth’s steady increase in global temperatures and consequential rising sea levels.At about 7 p.m., scores of NYPD officers and officials, who had barricaded the entrance to Wall Street and formed perimeters surrounding the non-violent rally several rows of personnel thick—among their ranks, riot and mounted divisions—arrested those who refused to disperse despite warnings that they were facing arrest for disorderly conduct. Linking arms while shouting calls for solidarity and continuous action, the protestors were handcuffed with plastic zip-ties one by one—including an activist wearing a full-body polar bear costume, two women dressed as Captain Planet, a high school student and at least two demonstrators bound to wheelchairs. One man saluted the charged crowd before his hands were restrained behind his back, to resounding applause. Another raised his clenched fist into the air. All were smiling. “Thank you!” yelled reams of supporters lining the sidewalks in front of historic Trinity Church and Broadway as they were led away to awaiting NYPD vans and buses. “You are our heroes!” As the buses pulled away, the ‘People’s Microphone,’ whereby those within earshot echo the message of a main speaker, proposed joining those taken into custody at 100 Centre Street with food, water and other comforts in a show of solidarity. Another man shouted to “Follow the bus!” to wild applause. The Flood Wall Street campaign followed on the heels of the historic ‘People’s Climate March’ on Sunday, which reportedly drew upwards of 300,000 and has been deemed the largest mass climate march ever. Both were held in anticipation of the United Nation’s Global Climate Summit on Tuesday, in which world leaders will gather to discuss the effects of climate change.NYPD officers blocking access to Wall Street during a “Flood Wall Street” protest on Monday, Sept. 22, 2014. (Photo credit: Kafel Benn)It also came less than a week after the Occupy Wall Street movement’s third anniversary on September 17. Police had been generally accommodating to protestors throughout the day, even clearing large routes for its march down Broadway, and were caught off-guard when organizers diverted what was largely a sea of blue (supporters wore blue shirts to signify the ocean and water) down narrow and trafficked side streets. The first major confrontation occurred when the group veered toward the barricaded and well-guarded intersection of Wall Street and Broadway on their way to the New York Stock Exchange just in time for its 4 p.m. closing bell.last_img read more
