Protesters set fire to Wendy’s in Atlanta where black man was slain by police

Posted on by

first_img“I do not believe that this was a justified use of deadly force and have called for the immediate termination of the officer,” Bottoms said at an afternoon news conference. Authorities have not yet released the names of the two officers involved in the shooting, both of whom were white.Brooks was the father of a young daughter who was celebrating her birthday on Saturday, his lawyers said. His death from a police bullet came after more than two weeks of demonstrations in major cities across the United States in the name of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died on May 25 under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer.Street protests broke out in Atlanta on Saturday near the scene of the shooting, with more than 100 people calling for the officers to be charged criminally in the case.THIS JUST HAPPENED IN ATLANTA, AT THE WENDYS ON UNIVERSITY. TWO WHITE OFFICERS KILLED A BLACK MAN!!!! FUCK THE POLICE!!!!!!!!!! pic.twitter.com/vlFP4Y8M71— ANNZ💋 (@ANNANTS1) June 13, 2020Police were called to the Wendy’s over reports that Brooks had fallen asleep in the drive-thru line. Officers attempted to take him into custody after he failed a field sobriety test, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Protesters shut down a major highway in Atlanta on Saturday and set fire to a Wendy’s restaurant where a black man was shot by police as he tried to escape arrest, an incident caught on video and sure to fuel more nationwide demonstrations.The unrest broke out after dark in Atlanta, where earlier in the day Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms said she had accepted the prompt resignation of police chief Erika Shields over the death on Friday night of 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks at the Wendy’s.Images on local television showed the restaurant in flames, with no fire crews on the scene. Other demonstrators marched onto Interstate-75, where they were met by police.The Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was shot and killed by police is now on fire.Protests are happening in Atlanta right now. ⁦@ABC7⁩ pic.twitter.com/8FuuGhVc59— Veronica Miracle (@ABC7Veronica) June 14, 2020 Video shot by a bystander captures Brooks struggling with two officers on the ground outside the Wendy’s before breaking free and running across the parking lot with what appears to be a police TASER in his hand.A second videotape from the restaurant’s cameras shows Brooks turning as he runs and possibly aiming the TASER at the pursuing officers before one of them fires his gun and Brooks falls to the ground.Brooks ran the length of about six cars when he turned back toward an officer and pointed what he had in his hand at the policeman, said Vic Reynolds, director of the GBI at a separate press conference.”At that point, the Atlanta officer reaches down and retrieves his weapon from his holster, discharges it, strikes Mr. Brooks there on the parking lot and he goes down,” Reynolds said.Lawyers representing the family of Brooks told reporters that Atlanta police had no right to use deadly force even if he had fired the TASER, a non-lethal weapon, in their direction.”You can’t shoot somebody unless they are pointing a gun at you,” attorney Chris Stewart said.Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard, Jr., said in an emailed statement that his office “has already launched an intense, independent investigation of the incident” while it awaits the findings of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.Bottoms said Shields, a white woman appointed chief in December 2016, would be replaced by deputy chief Rodney Bryant, a black man who will serve as interim chief.Topics :last_img read more

Artist David Bromley moves in to former Brisbane ice cream factory

Posted on by

first_imgArtist David Bromley is moving in to the former Peter’s ice cream factory site in West Village.Mr Bromley has taken on the role of artist-in-residence at the iconic landmark, which is being transformed into the $800 million West Village retail and residential development. The painter, sculptor and Archibald Prize finalist will create a series of murals throughout the 2.6ha site, including a huge piece of work on the Factory 1 building facing Melbourne Street that will be visible from the CBD. GET THE LATEST REAL ESTATE NEWS DIRECT TO YOUR INBOX HERE “This is the largest single mural that we’ve ever done,” he said.A dedicated studio space on the first floor of the former ice cream factory building has been fitted out with art by David, and his wife Yuge, and it will host new artists who become involved in the ongoing artist-in-residence program. More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this homeless than 1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor6 hours ago West Village at West End is about 90 per cent sold off-the-plan.The historic ice cream factory building is one of two buildings that are being retained and restored as part of developer Sekisui House’s masterplan for West Village.The project comprises a mix of apartments, townhouses and penthouses set within a retail, lifestyle and cultural precinct. West Village at West End is about 90 per cent sold off-the-plan.One of David Bromley’s most vivid childhood memories involves ice cream.He was 15 and working as a sign-writer, painting ice cream trucks in a dust-free room in glistening high-gloss paint.“One of my most formidable experiences was facing up to those big ice cream trucks because they were so fastidiously painted in this high gloss,” he said.So, it seems only fitting the prominent Australian artist should make the former Peter’s Ice Cream Factory in West End his home for the next 12 months. West Village at West End is about 90 per cent sold off-the-plan.Prices range from $398,000 for a one-bedroom apartment to just under $1 million for a three-bedroom penthouse.The studio space at West Village will be open to the public this Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 5pm, with artwork available for sale. Artist David Bromley, with wife Yuge, is moving in to the former Peter’s ice cream factory in West End.“We’re already working with an artist called Lucks and we’re also talking to other artists, interior decorators, architects — people with a passion for projects like this,” he said.The studio will also become a hub for future food, fashion and music events. According to project director Andrew Thompson, just over 70 per cent of apartments have sold off-the-plan in the first stage and about 20 per cent have sold in the recently released second stage. “The local market’s responding really well and they’re starting to see the development is not just another apartment building, it’s got a point of difference,” Mr Thompson said.“We are getting a lot of Sydney interest because of the price differential between Sydney and Brisbane so a lot of people are seeing Brisbane as an attractive investment opportunity and also moving to Brisbane because of the affordability.”last_img read more

Restructuring of Essequibo Cricket Board is needed says former president

Posted on by

first_imgBy Elroy StephneyFORMER president of the Essequibo Cricket Board (ECB),Prince Holder claims that the Board is dyfunctional and as a result it should be restructured. Holder briefly served as the ECB head following the sudden resignation of Sheik Ahmad in 2013.He is currently the Chairman of the North Essequibo Cricket Committee (NECC) which is one of eight area committees comprising the ECB.Given the geographical nature of the existing committees, the task has been quite herculean to financially sustain their vibrancy,including the hosting of regular competitions.According to Holder, the county has been without a major sponsor for the past three years which has severely affected the upliftment of the game in the Region.He alluded to previous and continuous sponsorship such as the Good Wood under-19 as well as senior inter-committee competitions which were quite beneficial for players who were eventually selected for inter-county tournaments.Holder further mentioned that senior players were also engaged in additional limited overs and three day inter-county cricket that were either sponsored by corporate entities,including Kayman Sankar or the Board.In contrast, he says that the current Administration is unable to attract sponsorship because of incompetence, neglect and lack of commitment to advance impacting initiatives and ideas.Holder is also of the view that the Board seldom meets while the sub-committees,including that of sponsorship, finance and cricket development have been diluted into irrelevance.The former ECB president also alluded to the ECB Hostel which is underutilised and remains in a state of disrepair. According to Holder,”The Administrator is being paid for non-performance since he does not occupy the office at the Hostel nor is he present in the various area committees to conduct cricket related activities.”This he said is unacceptable and must be investigated by the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB). He is also questioning the logic of the ECB to support an increasingly dictatorial GCB which he claimed has not been holding elections as mandated by its constitution.“Why has the ECB abondoned the interest of its most celebrated cricketer,Ransford Beaton,who has been denied a retainer contract by the GCB and who continues to be sidelined by the very Board that the ECB is aligned with?he questioned.Given such inexcusable dilemmas, Holder is strongly in favour of the restructuring of the Essequibo Cricket Board.He is further suggesting that the entire Board should resign en-block and be replaced by an Interim Management Committee (IMC) until such time that elections can be held since the term of the current Board has ended.Holder also supports the establishment of a group of former top local cricketers who will advise the IMC on ways to improve, strengthen and sustain the capabilities of the players,with the aim of them gaining more national and West Indies selection.The former president is also advocating for more coaches to be assigned to the Region and placed to work in schools. According to him, there is only one coach that is currently attached to the ECB, following the resignation of Vibert Johnson and the migration of Alfred Maycock.“ How can one Coach serve the entire Region, including in areas such as Wakenaam, Bartica, Leguan and in the Pomeroon?he further reasoned.Holder is also critical of the ECB for(allegedly) transforming itself into a clique of members whom he described as self-serving and even inactive.Given his experience and willingness to contribute to the development of the game, Holder is contending that same can only be achieved with the restructuring of the ECB and the injection of fresh ideas.The former president also questioned the ability of the acting president of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) Mr.Fizul Bacchus who is also the president of the Essequibo Cricket Board (ECB). This follows the resignation of Mr. Drubahadur from the GCB.Holder is of the opinion that cricket in Essequibo has massively deteriorated under Bacchus whom he opined does not have the qualities to lead the GCB or any cricket entity. “The ECB must be restructured as a matter of priority for sanity to be restored to Essequibo’s cricket,”he added .last_img read more

Wisconsin meets expectations early in season

Posted on by

first_imgAfter recording two wins in its first two games, the No. 25 Wisconsin women’s soccer team has already met some expectations at the beginning of its season. With 10 returning starters and a talented list of incoming freshmen, the Badgers look to be a competitive opponent in non-conference and Big Ten play this season.The Badgers began their season last Friday against Creighton University, defeating the Bluejays 2-0. Senior squad captain Amy Vermeulen recorded the first goal of the season for the Badgers early in the first half. Vermeulen was aided in an assist by fellow senior captain Marissa Brown. The second goal for the Badgers came late in the second half when freshman Elisa Webber scored her first career goal for UW.Sophomore goalkeeper Lynn Murray earned her first shutout this season for the Badgers after recording three saves throughout the game.“Our goal was to get the shutout,” Dean Duest, Wisconsin head coach, said. “Creighton is a very good team and they will do well. We started out in a flash and it was a very physical game. Our girls battled well.”The next win came just two days later, when the Badgers outlasted No. 23 Kansas 3-2 in overtime. Senior captain Katy Lindenmuth scored first for the Badgers in the first half. With a 1-1 score heading into the second half, it did not take Lindenmuth long to score her second goal for the cardinal and white. Lindenmuth scored just 39 seconds into the second half, giving the Badgers a 2-1 advantage. The Jayhawks responded quickly, sending the game into overtime, where Vermeulen quickly showed her talents by scoring the game-deciding goal to record the Badgers’ second win of the season.“[This weekend] was a great start for our team,” Duerst said. “We know a lot more about ourselves. Now we can turn it up a notch and continue to improve. We know what it feels like to be in a tight game.”Vermeulen and Lindenmuth’s efforts in their first two games met Duerst’s early expectations for leadership and experience this season. “We have talent and depth and are strong all around,” Duerst said. “The nice thing about this team right now is that the experience and leadership is in place. There are a new group of players, but they are being taken care of, and everyone is ready to go.”Lindenmuth adds the combination of experience and talent will lead the Badgers through the upcoming season.“We have a lot of expectations and a ton of talent. We have a lot of returners in combination with a lot of really talented young players. It’s one of the most exciting things on the team this year. Practices are so competitive. Everyone is back this season and ready to play.”With a goal to take it a game at a time, the Badgers are looking at a competitive and tough schedule this season. With one win against ranked Kansas behind them, the Badgers are slatted to face five other ranked opponents.Wisconsin will battle No. 7 Portland and No. 20 Washington next week at the Portland Tournament in Portland, Ore. The Badgers are also scheduled to play No. 13 Illinois Sept. 25, No. 8 Penn State Oct. 2 and No. 10 Ohio State Oct. 23. Wisconsin will host both Penn State and Ohio State and will play Illinois on the road.Currently the Badgers are concentrating on their non-conference opponents, but their concentration will change Sept. 23, when they are scheduled to open Big Ten play on the road against Iowa.“Our non-conference games are going to be really important for us this season,” Murray said. “Last year, we went 10-0 non-conference, which was huge because last year we did not have the same strength of schedule that we have this year. Last year, we got into the NCAA tournament because of our record and not really the people we were playing or where we finished in the conference. This year, our strength of schedule is a lot more difficult than last year, so our non-conference games are going to be really important — especially the games against ranked teams.”While the NCAA tournament is not scheduled until November, the Badgers once again hope to make a strong showing in the tourney. “As a team goal, we are trying to at get to the same place we were last year,” Murray said. “This year, we know we can do better than the second round of the NCAAs.”The Badgers will look to carry the momentum from their first two season victories into the home opener against Oklahoma. Wisconsin is scheduled to play the Sooners in the Big 12 Challenge today at 2 p.m. at the McClimon Soccer Complex. The team is also scheduled to play Oklahoma State Sunday at 11 a.m., also at the McClimon Soccer Complex. Both the Sooners and Cowboys have already recorded a 2-0 record. Oklahoma defeated St. Louis 2-1, and Arkansas 3-0, while Oklahoma State defeated both Texas State and Arkansas State 3-0.last_img read more

Syracuse wins back 1 scholarship for each of next 4 years in NCAA appeal

Initially, the NCAA imposed a penalty that took away three scholarships for each of the next four years. Now, SU will only have two taken away in each of 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19.The Division I Infractions Appeals Committee upheld the vacation of 101 wins and Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim now drops from second on the all-time wins list (969 victories) to sixth (868). Before the ruling was released Wednesday, Syracuse also received a $1.23 million reduction in a previous financial penalty. The committee acknowledged the mistake of requiring SU to forfeit that amount received from the 2013 NCAA Tournament.The NCAA’s release states that in SU’s appeal of the scholarship reductions, the university claimed the penalty was disproportionate to the details of the case. The committee ruled that the scholarship reductions were a “departure from precedent,” but that the stripping of wins “was not an abuse of discretion by the Committee on Infractions.”Syracuse NCAA Violations Appeal RulingAdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe initial punishments stemmed from a lack of institutional control within the men’s basketball program. Syracuse self-reported multiple violations dating back to 2001, including the failure to follow its own drug policy and academic misconduct.The initial penalties handed down included five years probation, the reduction of three scholarships for each of the next four years, financial penalties, two-year recruiting restrictions, vacation of wins and the suspension of Boeheim for the first nine conference games.The appeal on Boeheim’s suspension is still pending.

Volleyball: Badgers stumble to No. 11 UNC in ACC/Big Ten Challenge

Posted on by

first_imgThe Wisconsin women’s volleyball team finished 1-1 this weekend in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge with a 2-3 loss to the University of North Carolina and a 3-0 win over the University of Louisville.Friday night’s high-powered matchup against North Carolina was a tough one to stomach for Wisconsin. After dropping the first set 25-23, the Badgers stormed back to take a brief 2-1 lead, but they ultimately lost the next two sets. The Badgers narrowly fell 3-2 by a total scoring differential of only seven points between the five sets played. The loss to UNC was the first time the Badgers had dropped more than one set in a match this season.The roller coaster of a loss to the No. 11 Tar Heels was the first of the season for the Badgers, leaving the squad at 6-1 after the third week of the year.Friday’s game was ultimately decided by a battle at the net, an area where the Tar Heels thrive. UNC delivered when it came to upholding its title as the nation’s top blocking team by outblocking and outhitting the Badgers 17-13 and 71-59, respectively. Each squad had three players in double digits, culminated by Tar Heel redshirt sophomore Taylor Heath who finished with 23 kills in the nail-biting showdown.The Badger hitters reeled this weekend following the loss of UW’s second-leading hitter and outside hitter Lauryn Gillis, who missed both games after suffering sprained ankle last week. Gillis’ absence forced fellow junior Kelli Bates to start at the net for the first time this season, which created a ripple effect as freshman M.E. Dodge had to come off the bench to fill in for Bates at the libero position.Despite Wisconsin’s struggles Friday, the Badgers would go on to split the weekend after rebounding with a close win over Louisville. Freshman phenom and outside hitter Molly Haggerty was reduced to a spectator in Saturday’s match alongside her teammate Lauren Gillis, after she too suffered a partially sprained ankle late in Friday’s game. Due to these injuries, Wisconsin head coach Kelly Sheffield had to dig into a more inexperienced bench to hold off several vicious, late-set comebacks by the Cardinals.While the roster saw plenty of youth throughout the game, upperclassman leaders Romana Kriskova and Haleigh Nelson stepped up to secure the tough 3-0 sweep. Senior Lauren Carilini recorded her second double-double of the weekend and 61st of her career against Louisville, tying the record for most by any Badger in program history.Volleyball: Carllini, Wisconsin chasing title in final season of best player in program historyEver since Lauren Carlini’s arrival in Madison three seasons ago, University of Wisconsin volleyball has made deep runs into every Read…Carilini and Sheffield were both pleased with the team’s response and effort Sunday but are eager for the return of Gillis and Haggerty with Big Ten play steadily approaching.The Badgers will head to the Lone Star State this weekend for a two-game stint against No. 16 Texas A&M Friday and No. 3 Texas Sunday.For a team looking to prove themselves after an early stumble last weekend, the Badgers’ Texas road trip could be a great chance to gain confidence and climb back in the saddle toward national contention.last_img read more
