Officer who put Eric Garner in chokehold facing police department charges

first_imgzocik/iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — A New York City police officer involved in the infamous 2014 chokehold death of a man who was allegedly selling bootleg cigarettes was formally charged with violating NYPD regulations, officials said.Officer Daniel Pantaleo will face disciplinary proceedings in the internal case to be heard by the Civilian Complaint Review Board, NYPD officials told ABC New York City station WABC-TV.Pantaleo was recorded on cell-phone video taken July 17, 2014, putting Eric Garner in a chokehold banned by the NYPD as other police officers helped take Garner to the ground. In the video, Garner repeatedly says “I can’t breathe,” a phrase that has since become a rallying cry in nationwide protests against alleged police brutality.The NYPD’s decision to discipline Pantaleo four years after the incident in the Staten Island borough of New York came on the heels of a letter sent to the U.S. Department of Justice by Larry Byrne, the NYPD’s deputy commissioner of legal matters. In the letter, Byrne said the department had waited long enough for federal prosecutors to act in the Garner case.A grand jury in Staten Island decided in December 2014 not to indict Pantaleo and other officers involved in Garner’s death on criminal charges.Following the announcement of the grand jury’s decision, the Department of Justice began looking into the case to determine whether to file federal charges against Pantaleo.“Understandably, members of the public in general and the Garner family in particular have grown impatient with the fact that NYPD has not proceeded with our disciplinary proceedings and they have difficulty comprehending a decision to defer to a federal criminal investigation that seems to have no end in sight,” Byrne wrote.“The NYPD has come to the conclusion that given the extraordinary passage of time since the incident without a final decision on the U.S. DOJ’s criminal investigation, any further delay in moving ahead with our own disciplinary proceedings can no longer be justified,” the letter said.The NYPD’s decision to move ahead with the internal discipline case against Pantaleo after Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr, held a press conference on the eve of the fourth anniversary of her son’s death, saying, “We just want justice for my son.”“And it’s not only for Pantaleo, it’s for the other five officers who [were] involved,” Carr said. “Their misconduct. The ones who lied on legal documents saying what had happened to my son before the video came out.”A spokesman for the Department of Justice told ABC News last week that it was the NYPD’s prerogative to move forward.“As officials at the Department of Justice informed Mr. Byrne this spring, the New York Police Department may move forward with its disciplinary proceedings,” the Justice Department spokesman said. “Mr. Byrne’s letter does not have any bearing on the decision-making timeline at the Justice Department, and the Department cannot comment further at this time.”Police Benevolent Association President Patrick J. Lynch said, “We agree that the Justice Department’s leadership should move to close Police Officer Pantaleo’s case and put an end to what has been a highly irregular fishing expedition by those seeking an indictment at all cost.”Lynch continued: “However, that should not trigger a race by the NYPD to reach a pre-determined outcome in its own disciplinary processes. Police Officer Pantaleo is entitled to due process and an impartial consideration of the facts. If that is allowed to occur, we are confident that he will be vindicated and will finally be able to move forward.”Pantaleo has been allowed to continue working as a paid member of the NYPD while the disciplinary proceedings against him are pending.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

MEPs reject proposal for bakers to sell by number

first_imgMEPs have rejected the inclusion of a provision in the Food Information Regulation (FIR) directive, which would allow bakers in the EU selling wrapped products by number to continue doing so, following a vote at the European Parliament yesterday (16 June).“Under the existing EU directive there was a provision for member states to decide to sell some products by number, and the UK has legislation that allows wrapped bakery products to be sold by number,” explained Federation of Bakers (FoB) director Gordon Polson. “That provision was unfortunately omitted when they transferred other directives across into the new FIR and we’ve been lobbying to make sure the provision from the existing directive is transferred into this new regulation.” A spokesperson for the FoB said today: “The process has still some way to go. It is expected to be the end of the year before an agreement is reached on the Food Information proposal.” She said the FoB would now be concentrating its efforts on trying to get acceptance within the European Council to introduce an amendment on sales by number: “Polson will also be speaking to UK civil servants in the Department for Business, Innocation & Skills and DEFRA to get them to put more support into lobbying in Europe.” She added: “This is a disappointment but it’s not the end of the process.”The provision covers all food products sold by numbers, not just bakery products, Polson said that as far as bakery products were concerned, it only applied to wrapped products such as rolls, muffins and crumpets, so it wouldn’t affect high-street bakers.Speaking to British Baker before the vote took place, Polson said that even if the European Parliament did not vote in favour this time, it was not the “last chance saloon” as it was the equivalent of a first reading in Parliament. “The legislation has a long way to go,” he said. “We have also been lobbying the Commission to make sure that they know the situation.”Despite the vote, no quick agreement is expected in Council making it likely that the draft legislation would return to Parliament for a second reading. Once the legislation is adopted, bakers would have three years to adapt to the rules. Smaller operators, with fewer than 100 employees and an annual turnover under €5 million, would have five years to comply.last_img read more

Tedeschi Trucks Band Continue Protest Theme During Night Two At Chicago Theatre [Videos]

first_imgTedeschi Trucks Band performed their second of three nights at the Chicago Theatre last night, setting the tone strong in response to the day’s Inauguration events. The opening set featured “Isn’t It A Pity” with guitarist Luther Dickinson, “Get What You Deserve”, “Do I Look Worried” and more expressive messages that were seemingly directed to the state of the nation.Husband and wife Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi have both performed at the White House before, but it seems there will be an absence of musical talent for at least the next four years. Their emotions regarding recent events were cemented last night, following the previous night’s hints with “Are You Ready”, “The Sky Is Crying”, “I Wish I Knew How It Would Feel To Be Free”, and more.With covers of George Harrison, Charles Segar, Four Tops, Blind Faith, Leon Russell, Bobby “Blue” Bland, and Derek and the Dominos in the mix, the twelve piece powerhouse took down what was a difficult pill to swallow with grit and grace. See below for a few clips from Instagram as well as the full setlist.

Medal of Honor moment

first_imgOn Friday, three recipients of the nation’s highest military award ― all Vietnam veterans ― toured Harvard’s Memorial Church. They were part of an advance team for the South Carolina-based Congressional Medal of Honor Society, which will hold its annual convention in Boston from Sept. 15 to 20 and include a Harvard venue for the first time. Expected at the convention are about 65 of the 79 living medal recipients.The church, which was dedicated in 1932 as a memorial to the Harvard students, graduates, and faculty killed during World War I, will host a private event on Sept. 18 honoring recipients who had died in the previous year. “This is the one thing that’s really important” at every convention, said Victoria Kueck, the society’s director of operations.So far, there have been no deaths in the past year among recipients. “The count is zero,” said 30-year Navy veteran Thomas G. Kelley of Somerville. The remembrance ceremony will take place in any case.Kelley was awarded the medal for leading a 1969 rescue mission by eight riverine assault craft in Kién Hòa Province, Vietnam. Of the years since, he said, “I picked up the pieces and moved on.”In addition to the private event in September, organizers hope to schedule a gathering where veterans and the University’s community of active service members can meet the medal winners.“I’m really excited for the fall,” said Lieutenant Katie E. Burkhart of the Navy Reserve, who watched the tour unfold late Friday morning. She’s a 2016 Master in Public Policy (M.P.P.) candidate at the Harvard Kennedy School.“We are all so proud of hosting this on campus,” said Thomas Reardon ’68, who served in Vietnam as an Army infantry officer and today is president of the Harvard Veterans Alumni Organization.About 250 current students are either veterans or are in school while on active duty, he said. About 25 undergraduates are enrolled in the Reserve Officers Training Corps, which was welcomed back to Harvard in 2011 after a hiatus of 40 years.ROTC member Charlotte “Charley” Falletta ’16 represented the group during the tour.“It’s incredible humbling,” she said of seeing three Medal of Honor recipients at once. “They’re hard to come by.”Harvard’s relationship to military service goes well back into the 17th century, starting with the 1636-1638 Pequot War. “Our history is proud and long,” Reardon said. Over centuries of American wars, more than 1,200 Harvard students and graduates have lost their lives.Aside from the Army and Navy service academies, Harvard has more Medal of Honor recipients ― 18 ― than any other U.S. institution of higher education. That number could grow by one, joked Reardon to Kelley, “If Tom wants to take a couple of courses.”“I wish I had gone to Harvard,” offered retired Army Colonel Bruce P. Crandall, a Washington state resident who returned from more than 900 combat flying missions in Vietnam with his sense of humor intact. “I went to seven universities before I got a degree.”Crandall was awarded the Medal of Honor in 2007 for flying repeated evacuation and supply missions in an unarmed helicopter during the 1965 Battle of Ia Drang, fictionalized in the 2002 Mel Gibson movie “We Were Soldiers.” Crandall, who was first awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, arrived at Memorial Church with his dog Huey, who napped through the tour while tucked into a blue duffel bag. (The Bell UH-1 Iroquois helicopters of the Vietnam era were nicknamed “Hueys.”)With Crandall and Kelley on the church tour was 27-year Army veteran Harold A. Fritz, president of the Congressional Medal of Honor Society. Fritz was awarded the medal for directing the hand-to-hand defense of an armored column in January 1969, while surrounded by the enemy in Binh Long Province, South Vietnam.A plaque naming all of Harvard’s Medal of Honor recipients, including eight from the Civil War, hangs on the north wall of the church, which now memorializes Harvard’s dead from World War I to Vietnam. The list of dead from World War II alone, 697 names engraved into stone, covers an entire wall, floor to ceiling.Three of Reardon’s classmates were among the 22 the University lost to Vietnam. The University claims one Medal of Honor recipient from the conflict, Army Staff Sergeant Robert C. Murray, who left Harvard Business School to enlist. He was killed in 1970.Thomas J. Lyons, chairman of the Boston Congressional Medal of Honor and a member of its convention committee, looked on as the three war heroes toured Memorial Church, then stood together making plans for September.The society has held its convention in Boston twice before, in 2001 and 2006, he said. Both times the remembrance ceremony took place in Boston’s Old North Church, which played a role in Paul Revere’s midnight ride during the Revolution.But, said Lyons, why not Memorial Church, a shrine to the dead of so many American wars? It is just a few hundred yards from Cambridge Common, where in 1775 the first American army was mustered. Walking into the solemn space, he said, “just blew me away.”last_img read more
