Venezuela eyetwitness: 'The policeman pointed his gun and shot me'

Euronews has heard evidence of violence carried out by the security forces in Venezuela against journalists and protesters. One press worker said that during last weekend’s protests after the Attorney General Luisa Ortega Díaz was ousted, reporters were ambushed by the Bolivarian National Guard despite having identified themselves as reporters. The cameraman for the American network Telemundo says he was hit and injured by rubber bullets. “The police don’t like me to film them when one officer is stealing the wallet and earrings of an old woman being suffocated by tear gas thrown by them,” he said. The clampdown has been aided by gangs on motorbikes who have been seen roaming the streets looking for protesters. One young man who supports the resistance against President Maduro’s government claims he was shot in the face during recent clashes in Caracas. “I tried to dodge some obstacles and take cover from the policemen but then one of them – the one sitting in the back of the motorbike – saw me, pointed his gun at me and shot me five times with birdshot,” the 25-year-old university student – who didn’t want to be identified – told us. The UN’s rights office has denounced what it calls “widespread and systematic use of excessive force” against demonstrators. According to the NGO Espacio Público, more than 250 journalists have been attacked. They Euronews correspondent Eduardo Salazar Uribe, who was targeted while covering events in April. The Venezuelan Public Ministry has admitted more than 120 violent deaths during anti-Maduro protests.

More unrest, as police shoot black teen dead in St. Louis

Chaos erupts in St. Louis again as citizens take out their anger on the police, after yet another police shooting. This time, officials say a white off-duty policeman shot and killed a black 18-year-old during a chase. St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson says the teen shot first. (SOUNDBITE) (English) ST. LOUIS POLICE CHIEF SAM DOTSON SAYING: "I know emotions are high and I know tensions are high, but the reality is what we've seen or what the evidence tells me right now an individual pointed a gun at the police officer, fired at least three rounds and continued to pull the trigger." Officials say the teenager was one of three people who fled after being approached by the officer...but the family says he was holding a sandwich, not a gun. During the shootout, officials say the officer fired 17 shots. The incident comes nearly two months after white police officer Darren Wilson shot dead unarmed black 18-year-old Michael Brown in nearby Ferguson.

Michael Brown shooting: Key witness lied to grand jury, was probably nowhere near the shooting

A 45-year-old St. Louis woman who made key statements to the grand jury in the Michael Brown shooting case has been exposed as not only a racist and convicted felon, but also a liar, according to reporting by The Smoking Gun. Sandra McElroy, also known as Witness 40, apparently also suffers from bipolar disorder that she hasn’t taken medication for in 25 years. McElroy is an outspoken supporter of Officer Darren Wilson, who was responsible for the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown. She has posted comments on social media such as Facebook urging people to pray and support the policeman, while also remaining quite open about her dislike of black people, having referred to them as “monkeys” on her YouTube account, The Smoking Gun reported. McElroy was a key witness in the Michael Brown shooting case, telling investigators that she saw the teen charging “like a football player, head down” at Officer Wilson moments before Brown was shot to death. This statement corroborated Wilson’s account of the event, which may have affected the grand jury’s decision not to indict him. The statement was also made after Wilson’s version of events had been made public in the media. However, it is likely that McElroy wasn’t even in Ferguson the day of the shooting, and police have already dismissed her statement as “a complete fabrication.” When investigators asked her why she was supposedly in Ferguson when she actually lived 30 miles away, McElroy said she was trying to visit a friend she hadn’t seen in 26 years. She said she didn’t have the correct address and had no cell phone, so she pulled over to smoke a cigarette and ask directions from a black man standing under a tree. This, according to McElroy, was when she saw the shooting take place before her. Investigators pointed out the inconsistencies in McElroy’s story to her, to which she responded, “I know what I seen, I know you don’t believe me.” ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Jimmy Santiago Baca - Cloudy Day

It is windy today. A wall of wind crashes against, windows clunk against, iron frames as wind swings past broken glass and seethes, like a frightened cat in empty spaces of the cellblock. In the exercise yard we sat huddled in our prison jackets, on our haunches against the fence, and the wind carried our words over the fences, while the vigilant guard on the tower held his cap at the sudden gust. I could see the main tower from where I sat, and the wind in my face gave me the feeling I could grasp the tower like a cornstalk, and snap it from its roots of rock. The wind plays it like a flute, this hollow shoot of rock. The brim girded with barbwire with a guard sitting there also, listening intently to the sounds as clouds cover the sun. I thought of the day I was coming to prison, in the back seat of a police car, hands and ankles chained, the policeman pointed, “See that big water tank? The big silver one out there, sticking up? That’s the prison.” And here I am, I cannot believe it. Sometimes it is such a dream, a dream, where I stand up in the face of the wind, like now, it blows at my jacket, and my eyelids flick a little bit, while I stare disbelieving. . . . The third day of spring, and four years later, I can tell you, how a man can endure, how a man can become so cruel, how he can die or become so cold. I can tell you this, I have seen it every day, every day, and still I am strong enough to love you, love myself and feel good; even as the earth shakes and trembles, and I have not a thing to my name, I feel as if I have everything, everything.

13 Dumbest Attempts to Escape Jail

From getting smuggled out in suitcases, to dressing up as a lady, these are the 13 Dumbest Attempts to Escape Jail !\r\rSubscribe to Talltanic \r\r7. Kenneth Burnham\r As far as dumb plans to escape from prison go, this one definitely had to be included on our list. Mr. Kenneth Burnham here, being the genius that he is, decided that he was going to impersonate another inmate that was scheduled to be released. Everything was surprisingly going according to plan for Burnham until a guard pointed out the fatal flaw in his plan. The guard noticed that the inmate that was supposed to be released was a black male and clearly Burnham is as white as ghost. He was given two criminal charges for his failed attempt.\r\r6. Rafael Valadao\rFirefighters had to be called to a Brazilian prison when the guards discovered an inmate who had gotten stuck while trying to escape. Guards made the hilarious find when they followed the sounds of a man screaming and crying for help. The man was later identified as Rafael Valadao who had apparently gotten stuck while tunneling to freedom. A total of four inmates were planning to escape through a hole they made in the prison shower. One prisoner did manage to escape but Valadao trapped the other two from escaping with his 214-pound body. \r\r5. Juan Ramirez Tijerina\rIn new, a 19-year-old girl named Maria del Mar Arjona went to the Chetumal prison in Mexico to visit her boyfriend but is recognized as her common-law husband. The suitcase that she had entered with seemed to be a lot heavier and the guards noticed that Arjona was ing visibly nervous. The unzipped the suitcase and inside they found Juan Ramirez Tijerina all condensed. Ramirez was serving a 20-year-sentence for possession of illegal weapons and his girlfriend was arrested and given the appropriate charge. \r\r4. Ibrain Jose Vargas Garcia\rWhat is it with women trying to sneak their convicted lovers out of prison inside of a suitcase? What, did you not realize that the guards were obviously going to check your luggage? Antonieta Robles Saouda here went to visit her boyfriend in prison while he was serving time in a Venezuelan jail for stealing a car. She brought a suitcase along and while walking out the guards saw that she was struggling. Inside was Garcia all folded up like a human pretzel. She also brought her 6-year-old daughter who is now been placed in social services. \r\r3. Snoopy\rYes, you heard that right, folks. Snoopy. The beloved peanuts charer, Charlie Browns dog. A man dressed up like Snoopy and literally tried to break his friend out of jail with another accomplice. No word on if the other man was dressed as Woodstock. The men went down to the Isle of Wight, an island located in the English Channel, and went to the prison trying to bust down the staff door. The hilariously weird part is that the two guys had absolutely no clue which prison their friend was ually held in because they ended up going to an entirely different one. \r\r2. Ronaldo Silva\rFor one man, prison seemed to be too much of a drag so he decided thats exly how he would carry out his masterful escape.by dressing as a woman. Ronaldo Silva was awaiting his trial for drug trafficking in a Brazilian prison when his wife came to see him during a scheduled visit. Silva had managed to sneak past the prison guards dressed in his wifes clothing while wearing a wig, makeup, and fake press on nails. He even went as far as shaving his arms and legs. He ended up being recaptured at a nearby bus stop by a guard who noticed Silva struggling in heels. Sashay away.\r\r\r\r\r1. Andrew Wilson\rIts been reported that at least two-thirds of prisoners will end up incarcerated once again within three years of their release and three-quarters will be back behind bars within five years. Its common for criminals to be repeat offenders and wind up in the system all over again. Take this dimwitted guy for example. Andrew Wilson was arrested for theft, burglary, and consuming and being in possession of a controlled substance. He served 19 of his 20 days in jail and decided to break out a day before his scheduled release. He was recaptured and given additional charges of theft and escape.

China’s Rights Crackdown Is Called ‘Most Severe’ Since Tiananmen Square

China’s Rights Crackdown Is Called ‘Most Severe’ Since Tiananmen Square Kenneth Roth said that China’s crackdown on human rights activists is the most severe since the Tiananmen Square democracy movement 25 years ago, The effect of China’s behavior on human rights is like "death by a thousand cuts," Mr. Roth said, but he also pointed to the dangers of "a thousand acts of acquiescence" by the United Nations and states that support human rights. Human Rights Watch presented a copy of its report to the United Nations secretary general, Antonio Guterres, Mr. Roth said, but Mr. Guterres’s response did not mention China by name. China said that And China is an active, willing partner in that effort. The United Nations has expressed concern that the detention of Jiang Tianyong, a prominent human rights lawyer, resulted from a 2016 meeting in Beijing with the United Nations special rapporteur on poverty, Philip Alston. The report also documents China’s diplomacy in the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, where the country aligns with an informal collection of states, including Algeria, Cuba, Egypt and Venezuela, that discretely coordinate their positions to deflect scrutiny of their records and consistently challenge the council’s ability to look into accusations of abuse in other states without their consent.

Sexual assault on a rubber boat by former policeman

This morning Osaka District Court charged the former senior policeman for his public sexual advances towards a young girl near beach waters. He denied the charges in the indictment and pleaded innocent in court. The 28-year-old suspect is the former chief of police in the area. According to the indictment, the male was suspected of having sex with a young girl on the rubber boat. He admitted his acts were indecent but pleaded innocent since no one was there to see them. But the prosecution pointed out that his colleagues reportedly covered them up with an umbrella because they couldn't stand to have this indecency watched by the beachgoers. Although he got arrested for sexual assault last August, both Osaka District Court and Committees for the Inquest of Prosecution dropped the case due to insufficient evidence. -------------------------------------------------------- TomoNews is your daily source for top animated news.

queer (v.) Look up queer at Dictionary.com “to spoil, ruin,” 1812, from queer (adj.). Related: Queered; queering. Earlier it meant “to puzzle, ridicule, cheat” (1790). To queer the pitch (1846) is in reference to the patter of an itinerant tradesman or showman (see pitch (n.1)). These wanderers, and those who are still seen occasionally in the back streets of the metropolis, are said to ‘go a-pitching ;’ the spot they select for their performance is their ‘pitch,’ and any interruption of their feats, such as an accident, or the interference of a policeman, is said to ‘queer the pitch,’–in other words, to spoil it. [Thomas Frost, “Circus Life and Circus Celebrities,” London, 1875] queer (adj.) Look up queer at Dictionary.com c. 1500, “strange, peculiar, eccentric,” from Scottish, perhaps from Low German (Brunswick dialect) queer “oblique, off-center,” related to German quer “oblique, perverse, odd,” from Old High German twerh “oblique,” from PIE root *terkw- “to turn, twist, wind” (see thwart (adv.)). http://etymonline.com/index.php?allowed_in_frame=0&search=queer CBC wants hundreds of millions more CBC/Radio-Canada wants all its services to broadcast ad-free — but would need $318 million in new annual funding to do so, the public broadcaster said Monday in a proposal to the federal government. The recommendation was one of several the CBC made in a submission to Canadian Heritage’s public consultation on homegrown content in a digital world. “In order to exit advertising, CBC/Radio-Canada would require $318 million in replacement funding,” states the filing. http://cbcexposed.blogspot.ca/2017/03/cbc-wants-hundreds-of-millions-more.html Greyhound passenger who beheaded, cannibalized passenger is granted freedom A Canadian man who was found not criminally responsible for beheading and cannibalizing a fellow passenger on a Greyhound bus has been granted his freedom. Manitoba’s Criminal Code Review Board announced Friday it has given Will Baker, formerly known as Vince Li, an absolute discharge, meaning he is longer subject to monitoring. Baker, a diagnosed schizophrenic, killed Tim McLean, a young carnival worker who was a complete stranger to Baker, in 2008. A year later he was found not criminally responsible due to mental illness. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/winnipeg-greyhound-passenger-who-beheaded-cannibalized-passenger-is-granted-freedom/ Canada: Parliament Condemns Free Speech “Now that Islamophobia has been condemned, this is not the end, but rather the beginning.” — Samer Majzoub, president of the Canadian Muslim Forum. Majzoub is affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood. What exactly are they condemning? Criticism of Islam? Criticism of Muslims? Debating Mohammed? Depicting Mohammed? Discussing whether ISIS is a true manifestation of Islam? Is any Canadian who now writes critically of Islam or disagrees with the petitioners that ISIS “does not reflect in any way the values or the teachings of the religion of Islam” now to be considered an “Islamophobe”? https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/9296/canada-parliament-condemns-free-speech Think Canada Allows Freedom of Speech? Think Again I heard a lawyer comment that free speech in Canada is not an absolute right. I was a bit surprised by that comment, so I did a little research. According to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms: Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms:a) freedom of conscience and religion; b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication; c) freedom of peaceful assembly; and d) freedom of association. But the Boston Globe pointed this out, somewhat tongue in cheek, but accurate: How do you like your free speech — well chilled?
