It’s been a long, two-and-a-half-year fight to free Carlos Riley Jr., from Durham County jails in North Carolina. However, on Aug. 14, after weeks of family members and supporters packing the county courthouse, a big step was taken towards justice in his case.Jurors found Riley, who had been accused of shooting a Durham police officer, not guilty of all state charges, except for “common law robbery.” Riley is appealing the last charge.On Dec. 18, 2012, Riley had been sitting in his car on the side of the road after dropping his girlfriend off at work. Off-duty Durham police officer Kelly Stewart approached Riley in an unmarked car and began to harass him. Riley struggled in self-defense against an unwarranted stop and being attacked by the cop. Stewart then pulled his gun out and, yelling threatening language, shot himself in the leg.The Durham Police Department and other officials attempted to keep this from getting out. They accused Riley of fighting with and shooting the officer, and then stealing his gun. But documents presented in court showed otherwise, including “1 shot fired by officer” written on an official DPD Gunshot Residue Analysis form less than two hours after the incident.Riley was facing 460 months — 38 years — of state prison time, but he refused a plea deal and chose to fight for justice before a jury. “I am happy that he stood strong to not take a plea that was offered,” Riley’s father, Carlos Riley Sr., told Workers World. He continued, “He was offered a plea to walk free, but he refused because he wanted to fight for not only himself, but other Black men that have been faced with the same situation of police brutality.”District Attorney Roger Echols, working closely with the Durham Police Department, attempted to cover the department’s tracks by smearing Riley with criminal charges — just as cops and the media do in almost every case where Black people are either killed by cops or defend their lives. The DA claimed that Riley shot Stewart with Stewart’s gun. The DA and police tried to keep several pieces of crucial evidence — that proved Stewart had shot himself, despite his testimony that he did not shoot his gun — away from the jury.However, family members and community supporters packed the court for the nearly three weeks of trial, sitting in the room and keeping pressure on the judge and jury, while defense attorney Alex Charns brought out some of the racist tactics of the police. Charns cited figures showing that in the year before Stewart was shot, his traffic stops involved Black people 77 percent of the time. Charns also delivered subpoenas to Police Chief Jose Lopez, which were denied.Before the trial started, prosecutors had requested an off-the-record sidebar discussion with the judge and attorney Charns, during which they requested the judge remove Charns from the case. Charns then asked that the discussion be put on public record and the judge refused the prosecution’s request.In the lead-up to a previously resolved federal trial that took place in 2013, three separate public defenders who had been appointed to Riley’s case all backed out under political pressure. There had been dozens of demonstrations demanding freedom for Riley. Several community organizations, including Liberty and Justice for Carlos Riley Jr., SpiritHouse, the Inside-Outside Alliance, the Durham Solidarity Center and many others joined together to challenge the city, county and federal governments to drop the charges.Many of the rallies took place outside the new, state-of-the-art correctional facility in downtown Durham, where Riley was held. On one occasion, the street in front was shut down for 30 minutes by protesters, impacting visitors to the fancy Durham Performing Arts Center across the street. The center draws in millions of dollars of revenue for the city every year.During the lead-up to his federal trial, Riley — who was only 21 years old at the time — was under extreme pressure. Facing several decades in federal prison, he had agreed to a guilty plea on one charge in exchange for dropping the remaining charges at the federal level. This resulted in a maximum sentence of 10 years, which he is now serving.The information uncovered as part of this most recent state trial was being withheld by the DPD during the federal trial — illustrating one of the terrible problems that have led to an incredibly unjust system of mass incarceration. Ninety-seven percent of federal convictions are the result of guilty pleas that force people to serve prison sentences without ever getting a trial.Riley, like millions of other Black, Brown and working-class prisoners in jail, won’t be free until a massive movement in this country can topple this entire system once and for all and replace it with a system run by the masses.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily This year has been an intense one for all industries, but the housing market has managed to come out on top. As 2021 draws nearer, Zillow offers some key trend predictions that could lead to shifts in the market next year.While COVID-19 has led many homebuyers to search for more space out in the suburbs, Zillow predicts that there will be an increase in demand for city life next year. The potential for COVID-19 vaccine distribution in the near future means that those who may have left more concentrated areas may be returning.When the economy recovers and more Gen-Zers begin searching for their first homes, “a new class of young adults will be drawn to cities as they finish school and enter the job market,” according to Zillow.Zillow also anticipates a “perfect storm” of housing market conditions that could lead to a successful spring season for housing. If economic stability grows and mortgage rates begin to rise once again, the residential real estate market could see a “buying frenzy.”As buyers have utilized more technology in their search for homes this year, Zillow expects this to lead to less traditional seasonality for the housing market. Buyers now have grown accustomed to browsing for homes themselves using online tools, making it easier to buy homes all year round.Zillow expects that those who are on the search for a new home will continue to use more technological tools in the search process. According to Zillow, about 46% of renters say they wish more listings had virtual tours included. A Zillow survey also shows that about 72% of Zillow Premier Agents anticipate that they will continue using virtual tools even in a post-pandemic world.Technology was likely one factor that helped home sales to skyrocket in 2020, which shocked the industry. However, Zillow predicts that 2021 might take the housing market even further, with “21.9% annual growth for a total of 6.9 million homes sold,” which could be the largest annual sales growth the market has experienced since 1983.Although mortgage payments have been more affordable this year due to low mortgage rates, Zillow expects that to shift in 2021. Big housing demand and low supply have led to huge price increases, which have been great for the housing market. However, this could spell trouble for homebuyers and homeowners if price growth continues to flourish and if mortgage rates increase. Zillow predicts “annual home value growth to reach 10.3% in November 2021,” which will likely lead to serious affordability challenges.

News UpdatesCOVID-“Imperative That Front Line Workers Are Made To Work On Rotation Basis Or Else Health System Will Collapse “: Himachal Pradesh HC Nupur Thapliyal4 May 2021 12:06 AMShare This – x”It is imperative that the front line workers are made to work on rotation basis or else the health system is likely to collapse with the sudden and drastic surge in Covid-19 cases” observed the Himachal Pradesh High Court on Monday while dismissing a plea of a doctor challenging his deputation to a Covid Make Shift Hospital. Calling it a “rather unfortunate case”, a single judge bench comprising of Justice Tarlok Singh Chauhan observed thus: “The petitioner has failed to realize that the health workers in over-crowded hospitals, the policemen and other front line workers are already beset with overwhelming load of Covid-19 patients which is likely to worsen in future. These workers are exhausted from almost an year of restless fighting against the pandemic. The State currently is fighting the grimmest battle against Covid-19 which is nothing short of a disaster culminating in mass deaths and, therefore, it is imperative that the front line workers are made to work on rotation basis or else the health system is likely to collapse with the sudden and drastic surge in Covid-19 cases.” The petition was filed by one Vishal Koundal, a doctor by profession, challenging his deputation order dated 27th April 2021 wherein he was directed to get transferred on a deputation basis to the Make Shift Hospital, Palakwah, District Una, H.P. According to the petitioner, he had met with an accident in the year 2018 after which he had suffered Lumber, Spine and Sacrum injuries and was therefore unable to serve at the place of deputation. Finding no merit in the aforesaid claim, the Court observed thus: “We gather an impression that the petitioner is trying to escape from duties and responsibilities that have now been assigned to him. We are quite sure that the petitioner by claiming himself to be a front line worker against the fight of Covid-19 must have got himself vaccinated out of turn, but is now shirking from his responsibility.” Furthermore, the Court also went to observe that “a government servant is a holder of a status and that cannot be made depending on his will.””Once a person accepts the status as per rules, he no longer remains a simple individual only, but an integral part of Governance and at times even in the face of the Government. In the garb of self-unwillingness to serve, the petitioner cannot be permitted to shirk from his duties and responsibilities. This tendency has to be dealt and curbed with an iron fist.” The Court observed at the outset. With the aforesaid observations, the Court dismissed the said petition. Title: Dr. Vishal Koundal v.

A brief overview is given of the history of plasmaspheric hiss research, particularly in the context of the recent work by Bortnik et al. (2008) indicating that chorus could be the likely source of plasmaspheric hiss. Previous suggestions given in the literature for this theory are reviewed and then the mechanism itself is outlined, focusing on the characteristic cyclical trajectories executed by typical ray paths that enter into the plasmasphere. A number of directional propagation studies performed in the past are then discussed as well as other work which bears relevance to the present mechanism.
