Proof from the stun gun cam. He's out on the ground and gets fatally shot at that point...

A prosecutor said on Friday that he intends to make public a video of a police officer fatally shooting an unarmed man in the back as he lay face down.

District attorney Ed Marsico notified a judge in Harrisburg that he will release the video on Wednesday, unless the judge intervenes.

“Many people have requested it – I’m not standing in the way of the requests,” Marsico told reporters at a news conference on another topic.

Police say the video from the stun gun of Hummelstown police officer Lisa Mearkle shows her shooting 59-year-old David Kassick twice after a 2 February chase that began over expired inspection and emissions stickers. Mearkle was charged on 24 March with criminal homicide and awaits trial.

The judge had previously been asked by defense lawyers to block the video’s release on grounds it could unfairly influence potential jurors and would give an incomplete picture of what occurred.

Judge Deborah Curcillo declined to act unless prosecutors said they planned to make the video public. Marsico said on Friday afternoon that he had not heard back from Curcillo after announcing his plans to release it.

#horrorshow   #nyc   #prson   #teenager  ..he did not get justice in form of a trial in a timely manner. He was also falsely accused. At 16 he did 3 years on Riker's..

Rarely seen surveillance camera footage from Rikers Island prison in New Yorks hows a teenager being slammed to the ground by a security guard and two years earlier being beaten by a group of inmates.

The footage obtained by the New Yorker magazine depicts the sometimes violent atmosphere inside the jail. Conditions inside the detention center have been roundly criticized over the past year, and targeted for reform by both federal authorities and the jail’s oversight committee.

The video focuses on Kalief Browder, who was 16 when he was sent to Rikers Island in May 2010, for allegedly stealing a backpack in the Bronx, the New Yorker reports.

He spent the next three years there awaiting trial amid repeated court delays before New York prosecutors dropped the charges against him in 2013, the magazine reports. He was the subject of a New Yorker article in 2014.

#calbuco   #volcano  
Authorities urged 2,000 people living near the Calbuco volcano to evacuate on Friday after potentially devastating mudflows of volcanic debris were detected in a nearby river, the result of two huge eruptions this week that sent ash across large swaths of southern South America.

Chilean officials said the evacuations were precautionary but necessary, because flows of volcanic mud, known as lahars, are capable of levelling anything in their path.

The area had been evacuated after the volcano first erupted on Wednesday afternoon, but many people had begun to return home by Friday. Authorities said the evacuees from the towns of Chamiza, Lago Chapo and Correntoso would stay at shelters in the nearby city of Puerto Montt.

The volcano, which had been dormant for four decades, sent a plume of ash about 11 miles (18km) high during Wednesday’s blast. A second, spectacular outburst came early on Thursday, with lightning crackling through a dark sky turned reddish orange by the explosion.

The head of the National Mining and Geology Service said that the volcano’s eruptive process could last weeks or even months and warned that a third eruption was possible. “What I can say for certain is that this process is not going to end now,” the service’s director, Rodrigo Alvarez, said. “It’s highly likely that we will have other eruptions, maybe not with the same amount of energy, but with activity that can be worrisome.”

The two mighty blasts left Ensenada a ghost town, abandoned by most of its 1,500 residents. Sitting at the foot of the volcano, the town was covered in thick soot and some roofs collapsed under the weight of the ash.

#baltimore   #police   #thegraycase  Now things are getting real. l hope.


Police chiefs in Baltimore retreated on Friday from earlier claims that Freddie Gray, whose death has caused an outcry, must have been injured inside the van carrying him after his arrest.

They said they were investigating what happened during one of the stops made by the vehicle.

Asked whether Gray was fatally hurt by a so-called “rough ride” without a seatbelt in the back of the vehicle, or could have been injured outside the van, police commissioner Anthony Batts said at a press conference there were “potentials for both of those”.

“If someone harmed Freddie Gray, we will have to prosecute him,” said Batts.

Deputy commissioner Kevin Davis said officials were looking into the second of three stops the van’s driver made after Gray was arrested on the morning of 12 April. “The facts of that interaction are under investigation,” said Davis.

Gray, 25, died last Sunday after suffering a broken neck and injured voice box. Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said earlier this week “what happened happened inside the van,” echoing a police report that said Gray “suffered a medical emergency” in the vehicle.

City authorities are running a criminal inquiry into his death and the US Department of Justice is investigating for potential civil rights charges. The six officers involved in Gray’s arrest have been suspended. 

Batts confirmed to the Guardian on Friday that one of the officers was declining to speak with investigators, citing their constitutional rights.

#mexican   #teen   #shotdead2010   #no   #justice  
..so; target practice? What?

A federal appeals court says a US border patrol agent who fired across the border from Texas into Mexico and killed a teenager cannot be sued in US courts by the Mexican teen’s family.

The unanimous ruling was issued Friday by the full fifth US circuit court of appeals. The decision reverses most of an earlier 2-1 ruling by a three-judge panel of the court.

There’s no dispute the agent, Jesus Mesa Jr, shot 15-year-old Sergio Hernandez in 2010. At issue is whether the teen’s family could sue in US courts.

#venezuela   #thatfamousmango  
A woman who hit President Nicolás Maduro on the head with a mango has been promised a new house for her troubles in a surreal tropical tale that has gone viral in Venezuela. The 52-year-old president was driving a bus through a crowd in the central state of Aragua last weekend when the fruit was thrown at him.

“It says: ‘If you can, call me,’” said Maduro, who once drove a bus for a living, as he displayed the fruit on television. A scrawled message was visible. “Marleny Olivo had a problem with her house. [Officials] called her. She was scared. She couldn’t believe it was true … I’ve approved an apartment for you, Marleny, as part of the Grand Venezuelan Housing Mission.” He also promised that he would eat the mango.

Venezuela’s ever ebullient cybersphere did not miss a beat, with the president’s populist gesture drawing admiration and derision, plus plenty of jokes. “If for a mango they give you apartments, then you know what to do: throw him a pineapple!” quipped Dolar Today, a website that quotes the black market for dollars and is hated by Maduro.

Like his predecessor Hugo Chávez, who died in 2013, Maduro is presented with many petitions during his trips, although most are written on paper rather than hurled at him on fruit. 

In a habit that delights many poor supporters but irritates critics, Maduro – like Chávez – often personally gives away homes, appliances or pensions to low-income Venezuelans. However, lacking Chávez’s charm and good fortune with high oil prices, Maduro’s popularity has plummeted since he took office.

#washingtonstate   #medical   #marijuana   #dead   #newlaw  
A friend +Steve Pirk who knows something about this shared this story..
One of my friends who lives in a legal state (Rl) and now has 'paperwork' that she can purchase what she wants has had problems.. Seems that there's a great deal of inexpertise at places she's gone to purchase.
(She has mega pain and wicked migraines; so as to avoid opiates or ..just get something which works is all she wants.)
 
R.I.P. Medical Marijuana in Washington State
Prior to SB 5052, patients could grow 15 plants and possess 24 oz.
After SB 5052, patients can grow 4 plants (or 6 plants if they join the voluntary registry), and possess 1 oz (or 3 oz if they join the registry).

Before SB 5052, patients could purchase their medicine from any dispensary that they trusted.. After SB 5052, patients will be forced to purchase their medication from the pot equivalent of a liquor store.

If you want protection from arrest, you must join the registry. How do you join the registry? You go to a retail liquor cannabis store where an employee who has been "trained" on medical marijuana (this process has yet to be defined) takes your doctor's recommendation and puts you into a database that is "supposed" to be secure. They are also required to keep copies, so rest assured that your private information will never be shared or stolen or hacked...

Would you trust your health privacy to a 7-11 store clerk? The +Real Legalization team will be working on a referendum to undo as much as we can, but the best bet is to push I-738. Highlight include:

o No license, fee, tax, or permit is required of any adult twenty-one years of age or older to possess or cultivate the amounts of marijuana or cannabis specified in RCW 69.51A.040 Laws of 2014 in a person's legal residence. (15 plants and 24 ounces)

o No license, fee, tax, or permit is required of adults twenty-one years of age or older to transfer not-for-profit the amounts specified in RCW 69.50.360(3) Laws of 2014 to any other person twenty-one years of age or older. (One ounce)

o The first offense involving marijuana or cannabis for a person under twenty-one years of age, that would not be a violation of criminal or civil law for a person twenty-one years of age or older, is a class 3 civil infraction under chapter 7.80 RCW.

o There is no civil or criminal penalty when a person under twenty-one years of age consumes marijuana or cannabis-related products under the supervision and with the approval of his or her parent or legal guardian, and out of view of the general public. 

o Every person convicted of a misdemeanor marijuana offense under RCW 69.50.4014 may apply to the sentencing court for a vacation of the applicant's record of conviction for the offense.

#SB5052   #MMJ   #reallegalization  
Governor Jay Inslee today signed a lengthy reform bill that will radically change the way medical marijuana is bought and sold in Washington state. Inslee also vetoed seven sections of the bill, but left most of the new system intact as the legislature designed it. (That's in sharp contrast to the last big veto on medical marijuana, which got us into the mess we're in.) "I recognize the solution is not perfect," Inslee said at...

Occupation
Last employment was in field of computer graphics/ color darkroom back when it was all about slide shows in '90's
Skills
A number of different things.. home repairs; some mechanics. Know a bit of darkroom as this was a hobby for a time. simply many things which I've needed to know. oh; some gardening as well, and basic 'dog.'
Employment
  • this is a hard one as I've done so many different varied gigs since age 15 then a break when I was in art school.. kind of -almost- a you name it, I've done it! very funny resume if I list all!!
    Have had so damn many gigs (worked since 15 at something) this would be difficult to list. I've always had to write resumes in a creative manner. So .. given my age, employment spans from the mid 1960's on. Some of this, enjoyable, some not so much and then there've been those which were simply heinous. (Doubt anyone hasn't had these same sort of experiences with the really dreadful and short lived jobs).

Introduction
currently not working as I've got this autoimmune thing; not happy when I am not able to work. 
(you know how you need income for food, stuff like that? well, not having enough each month or just barely gets old mighty damn quick!). 
what I have hasn't a cure. it is ME/ CFS aka myalgiac encephalelomyelitis or chronic fatigue syndrome. and fibromyalgia tossed in for good measure although many have that one as well.
hate writing this stuff about 'me' first as it is not all I am about! but .. it does affect me, hinders me and even online...
I get a thing called 'brain fog' meaning I'll have these weird memory lapses. there are also cognitive effects; emotional, practically you name it (wiki does a fair job in description).
things for me could be worse.. could be better; whatever! did discover it gives me something of a learning disability; thinking that this may well be the why about the damn digi camera thing. not to mention a number of computer things (great finding that learning/ cognitive thing out; damn study done this past year).

more personal kind of stuff .. zero tolerance here for those who are bigots. for those who do not like someone for their sexual preferences, for their ... lifestyle, culture; think you might get the idea..

love, respect and adore animals! do not believe in keeping a wild animal as a pet. dogs, cats within reason. (oh yeah; spay! neuter! adopt!). some exceptions to the exotic animal

I do live in a city so many think of as just the bomb. my 'hood is like .. well, not a very nice area. 

love to read and have since I learned as a kid in school (always an avid reader). currently it's more fiction than other things for the reason of having lost concentration abilities greatly since becoming ill. (miss that! it's kind of like you get stupid when you get sick; you drop a bunch of IQ points which is disquieting!).

all i can think of. prefer to correspond/ interact with people at least close to my age. can't get why anyone much younger would even be interested....?
