first_img December 29, 2016 at 11:45 am Mama Mia TAGSApopke Community Task Force on ViolenceJohn Bridges Center Previous articleUpdating Traffic Alert: Apopka driver involved in fatal crashNext articleApopka pastor to participate in Trump inauguration Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Part One: Task Force provides the challenges, solutions and passion it takes to succeedWhat could $1.8 million do in South Apopka?Could it change the culture of violence and improve safety? Could it bring jobs, prosperity and education to a struggling community? Could it help to improve the relationship between law enforcement and residents?The Apopka Community Task Force on Violence is poised to find out.Yesterday the Task Force followed-up the release of a 40-page report with a press conference at The John Bridges Center in South Apopka – the site of the first Task Force meeting this past summer. The report had many authors, but Task Force Co-Chairman Rod Love wrote the framework, which was reviewed, revised and edited by Love and Dr. Randy Nelson, a researcher and professor at Bethune-Cookman University.  It was also reviewed by several subject matter experts for substance, consistency and to ensure that it presented a compelling argument according to Love.  Also involved in the final draft was Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson, who provided analytical feedback and recommendations. Attorney Greg Jackson, also a task force member, helped develop the possible application of Community Redevelopment Act (CRA) uses. The report details challenges and proposed solutions, but the biggest takeaway was a request from the Task Force for state, county and city governments to provide $1.5 million to support their initiatives. “It is requested that legislative support be given to this holistic and first of its kind state legislative budget request that has significant statewide interest and implications relative to combating issues that are not unique to Central Florida,” the report states. “In an effort to ensure that there is local investment in securing a return on taxpayer investment, this initiative will also be requesting a 20% match from the two affected local government municipalities based on a pro-rated share of jurisdiction.” The proposal calls for The State of Florida to contribute $1.5 million, Orange County $135,000 and The City of Apopka $165,000. It’s a big ask, but the Task Force has already begun to make headway. “Over the past three weeks we have begun the process of meeting with state legislators to garner sponsors in the house and senate,” Love said. ”  Representative (Jennifer) Sullivan has expressed a willingness to consider sponsoring this project in the State House of Representatives. We met with Senator Dennis Baxley in Ocala two weeks ago, and Senator (Randolph) Bracy’s staff last week regarding support of a companion bill in the Senate.  Commissioner Nelson and I will also travel to Tallahassee to present the final report to the President of the Senate and to the Speaker of the House upon scheduling availability.  I am also setting up various meetings with legislative staff as well and plan to present to the Central Florida legislative delegation in January.” According to Love, the funding would be strategically allocated to not-for-profit organizations that provide specific services such as delinquency prevention, mentors, job training/coaching, healthcare training, economic development, and housing. However these services would have to be provided in a specified high-risk community with data that demonstrates the need… such as disproportionate arrest rates, school suspensions and high unemployment. And while a request, proposal and steps taken to secure $1.8 million for South Apopka is certainly the big-ticket item in the report, passion was the theme during the press conference. “We could not do this work without our community,” said Task Force Co-Chairman Ken Wilson in a booming voice that did not need the provided microphone. “It’s the people of Apopka that make you successful… true warriors when it comes to community concern. And the only reason we were successful on this Task Force was because of the community, the faith based community and the youth that all contributed greatly.” Wilson paused for a moment as if to build up extra steam and then continued the rousing speech. “This is not our first rodeo. I’ve been in law enforcement for 35 years. We cannot put a band-aid on a cancerous sore. This is a cycle of violence. And we have to stop this cycle. We have to stop the bleeding. It has to stop!”Part Two: $1.8 million is a lot of money. What chance does The Task Force have of actually closing on that request? The Apopka Voice asks the County and City Commissioners who will play a big role in that decision. To read the complete 40-page report, go here. The Anatomy of Fear Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Why should the City of Apopka contribute more than Orange County? Orange County has a much bigger budget than the COA. It is like comparing apple and oranges. This is a noble and worthy cause, but throwing money at problems is not always going to work, but I wish you all well……..I think if everyone knew the answers to this very difficult problem of violence and crime, then places such as Chicago wouldn’t be in the negative spotlight like it is right now, for such out of control violence. I keep reading some commentary that the COA and Orange Co. need an agreement on working together to cover the different jurisdictions regarding the law enforcement, but I thought that was instituted years and years ago, at least that was what I had heard. I had heard that the culprits could be detained and held for the opposing law enforcement to come and apprehend them, and other inactive measures of working together. When did that change, or is it still that way? 2 COMMENTS December 29, 2016 at 8:13 am Reply Orange County Commissioner Rod Love Reply You have entered an incorrect email address!

It found that:73% of people agree that they feel confident in donating to charity9 out of 10 have contributed to charity in the last year.The report, The public view: trust, confidence and support of charities in Scotland, indicates that public trust and confidence in charities in Scotland has not been damaged by the criticism over the past nine months by some newspapers of some charities’ fundraising tactics in England.The report is based on a telephone survey of 1,028 adults aged 16+ in Scotland commissioned by SCVO and conducted by Ipsos Mori between 9 and 16 November 2015, six months after the first media criticisms were made of English charities. Tagged with: Individual giving regulation Research / statistics Scotland John Downie, Director of Public Affairs, SCVO added that, given that charities operate on public trust, it was encouraging that people in Scotland continued to trust and support charities. He said:“Whilst these are positive results, we shouldn’t take this trust and support for granted. We need to do everything in our power to maintain and strengthen it. That’s why we’re urging charities in Scotland to help design a new system of fundraising self-regulation to ensure that the public can completely trust, and have confidence, in how they raise funds for the causes they care about.” Take the survey into fundraising regulation in ScotlandYou can share your views on the future of fundraising regulation in Scotland via SCVO’s survey.SCVO is the membership organisation for Scotland’s charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises.

Veterans for Peace says ‘Free Bowe Bergdahl!’

first_imgThe following is the statement of Veterans for Peace on the case of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Veterans For Peace is dismayed by the Army’s decision to charge Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl with desertion and endangering troops, for which, if convicted, he could potentially face life in prison.  We believe that Sgt. Bergdahl should be freed from the Army with an Honorable Discharge.Bowe Bergdahl is a prisoner of war, three times over.  First, the U.S. government sent him on Mission Impossible, to salvage its illegal, immoral and unwinnable war in Afghanistan.  Then, he was captured by the Taliban, who held him prisoner under brutal conditions for five years.  Now, Sgt. Bergdahl is prisoner to an orgy of militaristic politics in the most fear-mongering election year in memory.  Republican front runner Donald Trump has publicly called Bergdahl a “dirty, rotten traitor” and suggested he should be executed.Did Sgt. Bergdahl walk away from his post in Afghanistan?  Yes, by his own account he did so, in order to bring attention to poor leadership, which he believed was endangering his fellow soldiers.  Resistance to Mission Impossible takes many forms.  Bowe Bergdahl may not have been explicitly protesting against the war in Afghanistan, but by taking drastic action he sent a distress signal.Bergdahl is charged with “desertion to avoid hazardous duty” and “misbehavior before the enemy,” which, respectively, carry maximum sentences of five years and life in prison. Charging him with serious crimes in a General Court Martial appears to be a political decision.  It overrides the recommendation of the Army’s own investigating officer, who said that Bergdahl’s actions did not warrant either jail time or a punitive discharge.  The investigating officer recommended, at most, a Special Court Martial, which can mete out a maximum sentence of one year in prison.Bowe Bergdahl is clearly not guilty of desertion.  It cannot be proven that he was attempting to avoid hazardous duty or to remain away from his unit indefinitely.  The “misbehavior before the enemy” charge asserts that Bowe Bergdahl’s actions put his fellow soldiers at risk.  It has even been said that soldiers died looking for him.  However, no evidence has been provided to back up this claim.  It was the U.S. government that put our soldiers at risk by sending them to invade Afghanistan and to occupy it for going on 15 years.  Nearly 2,200 U.S. soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan, including six who were killed just this week by a suicide bomber at Bagram Air Force Base.  None of these soldiers died as a result of Sgt. Bergdahl’s actions.Bowe Bergdahl is being made the scapegoat for the disastrous U.S. occupation of Afghanistan, which has caused the deaths of tens of thousands of Afghan men, women and children.  Bowe Bergdahl remains a prisoner of war.  Veterans For Peace demands that Sgt. Bergdahl be freed immediately with an Honorable Discharge.  Veterans For Peace is also concerned about the 9,800 U.S. troops who remain in Afghanistan, hostages to a failed policy, with targets on their backs.  The U.S. government should withdraw all U.S. troops from Afghanistan immediately and finally bring that long U.S. war to an end.Free Bowe Bergdahl!

Explanation wanted for amnesty granted to those charged in Gongadze case

first_img to go further Reporters Without Borders today demanded an explanation for the amnesties given to two judicial officials who were accused of neglect, abuse of authority and falsifying documents in the investigation into the disappearance of journalist Georgiy Gongadze in September 2000. The two officials were the only persons every charged in this case.Sergiy Obozov, investigating judge with the prosecutor’s office in Tarachtcha (the town where Gongadze’s body was found), was amnestied on 25 April. He had been accused of serious dereliction of duty in his investigation of the case. Sergiy Belinskiy, the Tarachtcha prosecutor, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison on 6 May for his role in the case, but was immediately amnestied and released “because of his family situation.” According to the indictment of 10 September 2002, Belinskiy was accused of failing to have the victim’s body identified when it was discovered and of falsifying the results of the first autopsy that was carried out.”With deep concern, we note the lack of results in the investigation into Gongadze’s murder, despite your stated wish to get to the bottom of this case,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to Ukraine’s attorney general, Sviatoslav Piskun. “In accordance with the wishes of Gongadze’s widow, Myroslava Gongadze, we demand an explanation for the amnesty accorded to the only persons charged in this case, and we request access to all the documents in the investigation against them.”A political journalist and editor of the online newspaper, the 31 year old Gongadze was well known for his articles criticising the Ukrainian government. His disappearance on 16 September 2000 became a national issue after the broadcasting six weeks later of recordings supposedly made in President Kuchma’s office which seemed to implicate very senior officials in his death.A Reporters Without Borders fact-finding mission in January 2001 found very serious shortcomings in the official investigation. Under the former attorney general Mikhailo Potebenko, who was elected to the Ukrainian parliament in March 2001, the primary aim of the investigation had been to protect the authorities rather than seek the truth.Shortly after taking over as attorney general in July 2002, Piskun accorded Ménard the status of legal representative of the plaintiffs, who had until then been systematically denied any information about the case. The prosecutor’s office then allowed Ménard to see the results of the forensic reports and, in January 2003, to arrange an independent forensic investigation that established with certainty that the body was that of Gongadze.

He adds,”But nobody could swallow this theory of suicide of a bright carrier upcoming star who played a lead role in the film of ‘M.S. Dhoni (released in September, 2016) and became famous all over India. He became a youth icon since in India almost everybody is a Cricket lover and he performed the lead role in the feature film produced by Bollywood on the life of our Great Captain M.S. Dhoni. Listening the news of his untimely and unsavory death every Indian was shocked and curious to know the actual facts of his untimely death”Stating that, even though, the Top Court had recently dismissed a plea on July 30, seeking CBI inquiry into the actor’s death “without any speaking order”, the petitioner avers that “much water has flown after filing of the abovesaid petition on 15.7.2020” and “all the Electronic, Print and web news Channels have only one story i,e mysterious death of Bollywood star Late Shri Sushant Singh”.Further to this, the plea states that after an FIR had been filed in Patna by Sushant’s father, the S.P. of Patna City was sent to Mumbai for further investigation but he was “put under quarantine by the Bombay Municipal Corporation as soon as he landed in Mumbai on 02.08.2020″. This, the SP has alleged was done selectively against him.”This blatant act of the BMC under the instruction from the State Government of Maharashtra make it loud, clear and apparent that there is something fishy in the investigation of Mumbai Police and it want to hide and suppress some material facts which are necessary for impartial and fair investigation of the case and that is why the present Govt. of Maharashtra is shy of recommending CBI inquiry into the matter wherein its act in this matter is under cloud” – Excerpt from PleaAgrawal also states that in wee hours of Tuesday (August 4), the Bihar Government has recommended CBI inquiry into Rajput’s death but the “Maharashtra Government may not agree for it” and that a CBI inquiry in Mumbai case as well as the FIR lodged in Patna is necessary for arriving at the actual truth to come out in the issue.Last week, the Supreme Court dismissed a PIL seeking transfer of Actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case from Bombay Police to CBI.A bench of Chief Justice SA Bobde, Justices AS Bopanna & V. Ramasubramanian had stated that the petitioner Alka Priya had no locus standi in the matter and that the Mumbai Police is already probing the case and must be allowed to do its job. Court suggested the petitioner file a PIL in the Bombay High Court in order to seek appropriate relief if she had anything concrete to show.When the petitioner submitted that the Actor was a “good person” and worked towards public interest, the CJI led bench said that the aspect was unrelated to the prayer at hand.Petitioner: But he had done a lot in public interest. Sent children to NASACJI: “This has nothing to do with whether a person was good or bad”It is pertinent to mention that after Rajput’s untimely death on June 14, the call for a CBI probe into the Actor’s death has been making national headlines. A PIL has also been filed by Supreme Court Lawyer Sarthak Nayak before Bombay High Court to hand over the case to an independent probe agency instead of the case being investigated by Mumbai Police which was scheduled to be heard today but cancelled on account of heavy rainfall.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
