  • Biden assails Trump for 'bald-faced lies' about voting by mail

    Golocal247.com news

    Biden's remarks were his strongest on the issue since Trump, who trails the presumptive Democratic nominee in opinion polls, tweeted on Thursday that he would not trust the results of an election that included widespread mail voting - a measure many observers see as critical during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Trump then suggested the Nov. 3 vote could be postponed, an idea immediately rejected by Democrats and his fellow Republicans in Congress - the sole branch of government with the authority to make such a change. Speaking during a virtual campaign fundraiser on Monday, Biden said he believed Trump would do everything in his power to "argue this election is fraudulent."

  • Virginia gov faces new hurdle in bid to remove Lee statue

    Golocal247.com news

    A judge dismissed a legal challenge Monday that had been blocking Virginia officials from removing a towering statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee from the state's capital city, but he immediately imposed another injunction against dismantling the figure. The new 90-day injunction bars Gov. Ralph Northam's administration from “removing, altering, or dismantling, in any way” the larger-than-life statue of Lee on a prominent Richmond avenue while claims in a lawsuit filed by local property owners are litigated. Now covered in graffiti, the Lee monument has become a focal point and gathering spot amid Richmond's sustained anti-racist protests since the police custody death in Minnesota of a Black man, George Floyd.

  • India to investigate universities' Chinese links as talks continue over Ladakh

    Golocal247.com news

    India is to review its Mandarin language courses over fears some universities were receiving funding from the Chinese Government, as talks between the two superpowers over their disputed boundary in Ladakh continue. Tensions between the two neighbours are at the highest level for several decades, after Chinese troops annexed at least 60 square kilometres of Indian territory in Ladakh in May. An unprecedented anti-China backlash has ensued, particularly after details emerged of the nail-studded rods used to beat 20 Indian soldiers to death, with Narendra Modi, the Indian Prime Minister, banning 100 Chinese mobile apps, including WeChat and TikTok. The Indian Government expressed fears over security, claiming users’ data could have been harvested through the apps by Beijing. Five Indian universities are now under scrutiny and have been asked to send all details of collaborations with Chinese institutions since 2017. This includes Mumbai University and the Vellore Institute of Technology, both Confucius Institutes, whereby an international university forms a partnership with a Chinese institution and receives funding from an organisation affiliated with the Chinese Government. China says its Confucius Institutes - of which there are over 500 worldwide - have been set up to advance Chinese culture.

  • U.S. FAA lays plan for Boeing 737 MAX's return; hurdles remain

    Golocal247.com news

    The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration said on Monday it is proposing requiring four key Boeing Co 737 MAX design and operating changes to address safety issues seen in two fatal crashes that led to the plane's grounding in March 2019. The agency is issuing a proposed airworthiness directive to require updated flight-control software, revised display-processing software to generate alerts, a revision of certain flight-crew operating procedures and changes in the routing of some wiring bundles. While the measures align with those expected by Boeing and aerospace analysts for months, the announcement comes after a series of delays and sets in motion the final sequence of events that could lead to the FAA lifting a grounding order on the plane later this year.

  • Which NYPD officers have most complaints against them?

    Golocal247.com news

    The repeal of a controversial law means previously secret allegations of misconduct have now been made publicIn New York, thousands of police discipline records that were kept secret are now public thanks to a change in the law. A statute known as 50-a meant the public could not know about complaints made against police officers or the outcomes of those complaints but, after the mass anti-racism protests sparked by the police killing of George Floyd in May, activists in New York successfully pushed for the law to be repealed.Soon after the law changed, the news organization ProPublica asked New York’s Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB) to see this information. The result is a publicly available database of active-duty officers in New York City with at least one allegation against them that has been substantiated by the CCRB. Almost 4,000 officers are included in the database, representing 11% of the 36,000 officers in the NYPD.Shown above are the 10 New York City police officers with the most allegations against them.Often, there is a clear pattern in the allegations made against these officers. Take Daniel Sbarra for instance, a lieutenant in the Organized Crime Investigation Division. Of the 69 allegations against Sbarra where race and ethnicity data for the complainants was recorded, 58 of the civilians were Black and 11 were Hispanic. Most were men. The allegations include offensive language, abuse of authority and use of force. Of the allegations made against Sbarra, 16 have been substantiated. The lieutenant who currently works in Brooklyn North has also been involved in at least 12 lawsuits that have cost the city over $1.5m in settlements.Although it receives thousands of complaints each year, the CCRB is unable to substantiate most of them. Often, they have to rely on NYPD officers to cooperate in the investigations (for example, to hand over body-cam footage) and, despite a legal obligation to do so, the department often fails to comply.Speaking to ProPublica, the former CCRB investigator Dan Bodah said: “I exonerated tons of cases that involved awful conduct that fell within the guidelines. It’s kind of haunting. The law and policy gives cops a lot of discretion.” Out of 3,000 allegations of misuse of force in 2018, just 73 were substantiated.The earnings shown here, which are collected by the Legal Aid Society using New York City Open Data, are from 2018 and include salary as well as overtime and other benefits. It’s important to include those other earnings, since New York police officers often make a huge amount of money in overtime.Take this year’s budget, for example. In 2020, the NYPD had a budget of $5,921,060,664 (that’s $5.9bn), but an additional $5.3bn was spent on overtime, pensions and fringe benefits. That means that the city spends almost $21,000 per minute on the NYPD.

  • Protesters Prevent Police from Investigating Stabbing Outside of Portland Courthouse

    Golocal247.com news

    A “hostile crowd” prevented Portland police from investigating a stabbing at the site of nightly racial justice protests and rioting on Monday. A woman had walked into Lownsdale Square park in downtown Portland and was taking photos or recording video just before 6:30 p.m. when an argument began between the woman and other people in the park. The woman who had been taking photos then brandished a knife and stabbed another woman in the chest.Officers were met with a “hostile crowd” on the scene and were forced to bring in reinforcements to the area. As police were trying to secure the crime scene, someone picked up the knife used in the stabbing and ran off with it, Portland police said. Supervisors made the decision to disengage after officers could not safely conduct an investigation in the presence of the crowd.The suspect fled the area but later returned and was interviewed by police. The victim, whom officers found a few blocks away at SW 5th Ave and SW Taylor Street, was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The city has experienced months of rioting and unrest following the death of George Floyd, leading to the deployment of federal agents to the city. Rioters have repeatedly used violence to target the federal courthouse there, attacking federal law enforcement with various weapons including Molotov cocktails, and in some cases blinding officers with lasers.While Oregon elected officials demanded the removal of federal law enforcement from the city, President Trump said “there would be no Portland” if Department of Homeland Security personnel had not been sent in.A phased removal of federal law enforcement from the city began last week.
