Renisha McBride’s killer: ‘Guilty’


first_imgRenisha McBrideDetroit — A Wayne County jury on Aug. 7 found Theodore Wafer, 55, of Dearborn Heights, Mich., a Detroit suburb, guilty on all charges, including second-degree murder, in the death of 19-year-old ­African- American Renisha McBride. Wafer could face up to life in prison after a sentencing hearing scheduled for Aug. 25.McBride’s killing on Nov. 2 prompted mass demonstrations demanding justice. The case attracted international attention when police did not initially arrest Wafer even though he admitted he had shot McBride to death outside his home.McBride had been involved in a car accident just before she walked onto Wafer’s porch and began knocking on his door. Wafer came to the door and shot her and then gave contradictory statements regarding the reasons he killed her.Wafer had initially told police that the shooting was an accident. However, when Wafer took the witness stand in his own trial he attempted to convince the jury that he was frightened by McBride and shot her thinking she was attempting to break into his home.No damage was done to the house when McBride walked onto Wafer’s porch. She was not armed and made no attempt to enter the home forcefully.Defendant’s lies exposed during trialWafer contradicted his initial statements to the police during testimony in the trial, revealing to the jury and observers that he was not credible.According to CBS local news, “Prosecutors in their closing arguments repeatedly emphasized that Wafer had easier options than to directly confront McBride.” (Aug. 7)“She was a young girl looking for help,” prosecutor Patrick Muscat told jurors. “What he did had to be immediately necessary and it wasn’t. It was reckless. It was negligent. I don’t know how to describe it. It was horrific,” said Muscat.Muscat asked, “How about shutting the door? How about calling 911? No, what he does is he engages. He creates the confrontation.”McBride’s parents appeared satisfied with the verdict. Monica McBride, Renisha’s mother, talked to reporters after the verdict was announced. “Her life mattered, and we showed that,” McBride stated. She said the prosecutors “did a wonderful job proving their burden that they had. … They had a heavy burden, but they made it through.”Walter Simmons, McBride’s father, described Wafer as “a cold-blooded killer.” Simmons said: “He didn’t even know her. … She was a beautiful young lady, you know. She had things going for her.”Racist killings not isolatedThis verdict represented a departure from the often typical response of law enforcement agencies and prosecutors in pursuing cases involving violence carried out by whites against African Americans. With the tragic killing of McBride taking place a year after a “not guilty” verdict for George Zimmerman in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, progressives and anti-racists did not want the same situation to prevail.After the acquittal of Zimmerman in Florida, there were mass demonstrations and rebellions across the United States in July 2013. When police did not arrest Wafer in the shooting death of McBride, demonstrations were held in Dearborn Heights demanding that charges be filed by the Wayne County prosecutor.The Aug. 9 police killing of Michael Brown, 18, in Ferguson, Mo., has sparked mass demonstrations and a rebellion led by African-American youth. Brown had just graduated from high school and was scheduled to begin college two days before his death.Spotlighting another violent, racist incident, a video of Marlene Pinnock being beaten July 1 by a California Highway Patrol officer has received wide attention. Pinnock, who is African American, gave her first interview Aug. 10 after being released from the hospital for medical treatment for injuries sustained in the beating.Pinnock said of the patrol officer that attacked her on the expressway, “He grabbed me, he threw me down, he started beating me, he beat me. I felt like he was trying to kill me, beat me to death.” (Associated Press, Aug. 10)As the crisis within the capitalist system in the U.S. further deepens, racists and law enforcement agents will intensify their attacks on the oppressed. These acts of racist violence are well rooted within the history and political culture of the U.S., which was founded on the forced removal and genocide of the Native peoples as well as the abductions, enslavement and superexploitation of the African masses for over two centuries.Mass organizations, civil rights groups and all concerned activists must mobilize nationally to effectively put an end to racist violence in all its forms. Through such a process, genuine multinational solidarity can be built, which will lay the basis for a society devoid of racism and national oppression.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


Political crisis in South Korea: What’s behind the president’s impeachment


first_img300,000 rallying in Seoul on Dec. 17.A major political crisis is shaking south Korea, but you would barely know it if you depend on the corporate media for your news.The president, Park Geun-hye, was impeached by an overwhelming majority of the south Korean legislature on Dec. 9. The vote came after two months of demonstrations calling for her resignation, with an estimated 2.1 million people turning out the Saturday before the vote. Since the impeachment of Park, the demonstrations have continued, with a reported 300,000 rallying in Seoul alone on Dec. 17.The president and her right-wing backers are contesting the impeachment. The forces behind her — including some of the biggest corporations in south Korea — are dragging out the process with appeals that could take a year and a half.The U.S. government has not publicly acknowledged the impeachment. The U.S. media, taking their cue from the billionaire ruling class here, are saying very little about it, but the strategists for imperialism are deeply concerned.U.S. military occupation of south KoreaThe U.S. military has occupied south Korea since the end of World War II. Since the Korean Revolution, which began during Japanese colonial rule and liberated the north in 1945, followed by the victory of the Chinese Revolution in 1949, the imperialists have focused on militarizing south Korea. They installed a string of dictators, including Gen. Park Chung-hee, father of the now-impeached president, who led a military coup in 1961 and ruled with an iron hand until 1979.Gen. Park showed his allegiance to the Pentagon by sending 300,000 Korean soldiers to fight in Vietnam in the 1960s. He became so hated that he was assassinated by the Korean Central Intelligence Agency, to be replaced by another general, Chun Doo-hwan.With such a deep military investment in south Korea, one can be sure that the current turmoil there is of great concern to the Pentagon and Wall Street. Indeed, one of the few newspapers to devote any space to the impeachment is the Wall Street Journal, whose headline on a Dec. 9 article read: “South Korea Impeachment of President Park Is Latest Hit to Global Political Order; Likely successors to President Park take different views on ties with Washington, free trade and big business.”The article says that the impeachment “brings the prospect of a new government for one of the U.S.’s closest allies that could have a skeptical stance toward Washington, a softer line on Pyongyang and a friendlier approach to China.”So the leading newspaper for the U.S. ruling class is warning its well-heeled readers that their domination over south Korea is being challenged by this immensely popular political movement.The immediate reasons for the impeachment center on corruption on a grand scale. Park and a friend, Choi Soon-sil, control foundations that received big donations from corporate heads who were pardoned by the president while facing jail for economic crimes.According to the Dec. 5 Wall Street Journal, “Park has pardoned top executives convicted of crimes, for example, Chung Mong-koo, chair of Hyundai Motor Group, sentenced to three years for embezzlement, pardoned without serving any time. One of the foundations allegedly controlled by Choi was funded by 15 of South Korea’s largest conglomerates. The chairmen of Samsung, SK, Hanwha, Hyundai Motor and CJ groups have all been pardoned in the past decade.”Attacks on working classThis scandal comes on top of huge attacks on the working class and other policies extremely offensive to the Korean people.During a more liberal period starting in the 1990s, workers in south Korea had the world’s highest rate of unionization. Today, after years of anti-labor measures and physical attacks on the union movement, along with the implementation of part-time and precarious labor, only one-tenth of the workforce is organized.In 2014, thousands of workers struck for three weeks in the longest strike in the history of Korail, the national railroad operator. The strike was provoked by a government restructuring plan that threatened privatization of the railroads, with loss of jobs, benefits and services. It quickly developed into one of the sharpest recent worker-government conflicts and was supported by the Korean Confederation of Trade Unions.Korail fired more than 4,000 workers on Dec. 9, 2014, and announced a plan to hire 660 strikebreakers. President Park ordered an attack by hundreds of police on the rail union’s headquarters and arrested 10 union leaders on Dec. 16.On July 4 of this year, Han Sang-gyun, president of the KCTU, was sentenced to five years in jail for leading protests against Park’s repressive labor policies.Park banned opposition partyAt the same time as the 2014 railroad strike, the Park regime banned the only real opposition party, the United Progressive Party, arresting some of its leading members and ejecting its five elected deputies from the national legislature. The party was reported to have around 100,000 members and supported the reunification of the divided Korean nation.Like her father, Park used the National Security Law to suppress freedom of speech and send to jail those demonstrating for reunification and against U.S. occupation and repressive government policies.This July, the Park regime announced it would let the Pentagon deploy a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense battery in the country’s southeast, aimed at both China and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea in the north. Farmers at the proposed THAAD site have continued protests every night since then.Also unpopular is the Park government’s push to sign a military intelligence pact with Japan, the country’s former colonial ruler, again at the instigation of the U.S., which has invited Japan into its military “exercises,” aimed in recent years at the DPRK.The U.S. government is acting low-key about the current turmoil in south Korea, but there can be no question that it is working feverishly behind the scenes trying to shore up both the military and the ruling class there against the popular masses.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


North Korean coverage of Jang’s “treason” tantamount to mass intimidation

Then, in the days that followed, his arrest, trial and execution received detailed coverage in the Korean and English-language print and broadcast media.“Although only to be expected from one of the world’s worst dictatorships, such manipulation of news and information is disturbing,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The extensive and indeed staged coverage of this execution coinciding with the hyped coverage of the second anniversary of Kim Jong-il’s death had the hallmarks of a intimidatory message to the entire Korean population and the international community.“This propaganda has highlighted the harshness of a regime that has not hesitated to execute one of the party’s most senior officials, a four-star general and uncle of the currently leader. Such an atmosphere of terror will weigh heavily on the little freedom of information remaining in such a closely-watched society.”On 9 December, the state media reported Jang’s arrest and the charges against him in detail. In the hours preceding the announcement, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) took care to suppress his image.The main reports about Jang were reportedly removed at 5 a.m. only to reappear a few hours later. Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the party’s central committee, and Uriminzokkiri, a website based in China that is used to circulate party propaganda abroad, suppressed almost all reports mentioning Jang, nearly 20,000 mentions in Rodong Sinmun’s case.Jang was also edited out of a TV documentary, while 35,000 Korean-language articles and 65,000 foreign-language articles (in English, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese) were removed from the KCNA website. The KCNA’s archives now only go back to October 2013.Kim Jong-un’s uncle and mentor and No. 2 in the government hierarchy, Jang was arrested during a meeting of the party’s political bureau on 9 December. Three days later, he “confessed to his crimes” to a military tribunal, which found him guilty of “conspiracy against the state” and ordered his execution. A KCNA report on 13 December gave a detailed account of the previous day’s trial ending with the court’s decision to sentence Jang to death. The final paragraph reportedly tersely: “The decision was immediately executed.”North Korea is ranked 178th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Advocate Shridhar Prabhu appearing for the Council informed the High Court that the sub-commitee is also contemplating whether Law Universities can be given liberty to frame their alternative rules, for the academic year 2019-20. He argued that the University Grants Commission (UGC) has mandated that from September 2020 all final year exams have to be concluded. This decision is impugned before the Supreme Court and the petition is likely to be taken up for hearing Monday. He said, “Suppose the honourable supreme court was to say that the final year exam cannot be held at all, then this petition need not be adjudicated.” Prabhu argued that the Council was in a catch-22 situation, as “One view is that from first year onwards there are students who have attended chambers, maintained diaries, despite syllabus being prescribed for the final year. In fact, even the last semester students during the first phase of the semester from February, have participated in the chamber meetings and moot courts. One set of students are saying that we have already attended and we cannot be placed alongside with students who have never participated. Second set of students are saying we never expected such a thing to happen, so we were waiting for the second part of the semester to complete this.” He even contended that the petitioners, Gautham R and Krishnamurthy T K,  students of University Law College, Bangalore, have filed the petition for personal benefit and thus the petition could not be a Public Interest Litigation. A bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice H P Sandesh observed,  “A combination of prayers can be made in a PIL or writ petition.The welfare of law students is also a matter of public interest as far as the institution of judiciary is concerned.” The court has now directed the petitioners to implead the Karnataka State Law University as party respondent to the petition, so that similar directions can be made to it. The court had on the last hearing date T directed the Bar Council of India (BCI) to clarify if it has powers to relax rules and if it has been exercised to allow Law Universities to issue alternative guidelines, to dispense the mandatory regulations for all final year students of Five Year Law Course, to engage themselves in moot courts, internships, pre-trial preparation etc, for the academic year 2019-20. The bench then said “Today Bar council members may have taken this decision but tomorrow we may not know what will happen. So we have to secure the future of the students.” The bench added, “Suppose a student wants to pursue education in a foreign University after completion of course and if the degree is not recognised at a later stage, it will affect their career.” The petition states that Schedule II of Part IV of the Bar Council of India Rules outlines the academic standards and courses a legal institution needs to impart in the course of legal education. Part II (B) under Entry 6 of Schedule II of the Rules of Legal Education (Part IV of Bar Council of India Rules) provides for “Compulsory Clinical Courses” which must be conducted by the respective Universities/Institutions. Under the said Entry 6, Paper 24 pertains to “Moot Court Exercise and Internship” which reads as follows: Moot court exercise and Internship: This paper may have three components of 30 marks each and a viva for: 10 marks. (a) Moot Court (30 Marks). Every student may be required to do at least three moot courts in a year with 10 marks for each. The moot court work will be on assigned problems and it will be evaluated for 5 marks for written submissions and 5 marks for oral advocacy. (b) Observance of Trial in two cases, one Civil and one Criminal (30 marks): Students may be required to attend two trials in the course of the last two or three years of LLB. studies. They will maintain a record and enter the various steps observed during their attendance on different days in the court assignment. This scheme will carry 30 marks. (c) Interviewing techniques and Pre-trial preparations and Internship diary (30 marks): Each student will observe two interviewing sessions of clients at the Lawyer’s Office/ Legal Aid Office and record the proceedings in a diary, which will carry 15 marks. Each student will further observe the preparation of documents and court papers by the Advocate and the procedure for the filing of the suit/petition. This will be recorded in the diary, which will carry 15 marks. On account of the impending COVID-19 pandemic, the High Court has laid down certain Standard Operating Procedures for the regular functioning and operation of the Courts wherein it has been categorically laid down that the entry of Advocates’ clerks, litigants as well as any other third parties have been strictly prohibited into the premises of the courts, sans permission. In such circumstances, it would be impossible for the students of final year of law to enter the court premises and observe the court proceedings or to observe interviewing sessions of clients at a Lawyer’s Office/Legal Aid Office for the purpose of completion of the course, the petitioners contended. The Law Chambers/Firms of Advocates are also reluctant to encourage students from law schools to intern at their offices keeping in mind the principles of social distancing. The indifference and apathy at the hands of the respondents is likely to vex the mobility of the students en masse, highlighted the petitioenrs. The plea prays for direction to respondents to dispense with clause (b) and (c) of Paper 24 under Schedule II of Part IV of Bar Council of India Rules (“Rules of Legal Education”) for the academic year 2019-2020.

Farm fresh


first_img Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Latest Stories Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson “People are always going to eat, so my wife, Machelle and I, decided to start a produce farm and see what we could make of it,” said Danner, owner and operator of Walnut Creek Produce on U.S. Highway 231 just south of Troy. “We grow what we sell and we grow it right here behind the produce stand. So, what you get here, you know is fresh because you can see where it’s grown.”The Danners planned for good times and bad times. And in recent years, there have been more bad times on the farm than good times.“That’s why we irrigate,” Danner said. “There’s no need to spend a pile of money and then three weeks before your peas or corn is ready to be picked you lose it all because of no water. If we’re going to make it, we’ve got to plan for whatever could come along.”The Danners’ Walnut Creek Produce roadside stand is flanked by a large peanut field and a cornfield. In between, the farm is producing peas, butterbeans, tomatoes, cantaloupes, watermelons, eggplants and peppers. Email the author If you listen, you’ll learn a lot.Jeff Danner listens.

That’s how he knows how to make blue honey – bright blue honey – and how to produce peanuts like the ones grown back in mule days.And, that’s why he was confident about going into produce farming.Danner is a state licensed general contractor. He’s an experienced underwater welder and a commercial food grower. And, when the housing market “went to nothing,” he considered his options.

Watch Before It’s… “The sunflowers are there mainly for the beauty of it but we sell them for flower arrangements and things like that,” Danner said.“In the fall, we’ll have boiled peanuts for sale, turnips, mustard, rutabagas, onions, collards, kale and sweet potatoes. We’ve got a late tomato that we’ll plant that will produce until frost.”Later, plans are to have cane syrup, pepper sauce, pickles, preserves and honey.On the backside of the farm, Danner has 48 hives of bees.“People don’t realize what bees do for produce,” he said. “We’ll start having honey in a few weeks. It’ll be vegetable nectar honey and it will be as sweet as it can be. Most all honey tastes pretty much alike unless it’s orange blossom honey, or something else that will have a little citrus taste to it.Around Christmastime, Danner will make a “making or two” of his Brunswick stew, which he said is from a 160-year-old recipe that originated with a Mason in Barbour County.“You’ve never tasted anything like it, or as good,” he said. “It takes two days to make it and you can’t make enough to meet the wants. It’s the best I’ve ever tasted.”Danner plans to have enough peanuts to meet the continuing year round demand for the boiled, salted goobers. So sweet, salty or sour, Walnut Creek Produce will have it all.“Our prices are good and our produce is some of the best,” he said. “As long as people want to eat, somebody’s got to grow it. That’s what we’re doing at Walnut Creek.” Farm fresh Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?
