Paramilitary “black eagles” poised to swoop down on press

first_img April 27, 2021 Find out more May 13, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today released a report about the 30,000 paramilitaries who were once recruited as auxiliaries in the army’s war on far-left guerrillas and who were supposedly “demobilised” by President Alvaro Uribe in a three-year process ending in March 2006.In fact, very few of these militiamen have been properly reintegrated into civil society and many of them, now involved in drug trafficking, continue to spread terror, especially in the local media. At the same time, a “Justice and Peace” law adopted in July 2005 that envisages five to eight years in prison for the most serious crimes, guarantees them almost total impunity.The so-called “demobilised” paramilitaries were responsible for murdering two journalists last year, including Gustavo “El Gaba” Rojas Gabalo of Radio Panzenú on 4 February 2006 in the northwestern city of Montería. Re-formed groups such as the “Black Eagles” have a strong presence in the Caribbean coast departments and their operations designed to intimidate the media have forced 10 journalists into internal exile.At a time when President Uribe’s government is embroiled in a scandal about its links with paramilitaries – in some cases confirmed by such paramilitary chiefs as Salvatore Mancuso – Reporters Without Borders wanted to assess the real impact of the demobilisation process on the work of the press. Taking advantage of World Press Freedom Day celebrations in Medellín, the organisation made a fact-finding trip to Colombia from 28 April to 5 May, spending much of it in Montería, in the region where the paramilitaries first emerged.In its meeting with local and national journalists, both those who are still working and those who have had to flee, and with human rights and press freedom activists, Reporters Without Borders found that the paramilitary threat continues to weigh on journalists and encourages the local ones especially to censor themselves. The organisation was also disturbed by government-level pressure on some media and the unequal treatment of journalists who are exposed to danger.This report about the paramilitaries in no way exonerates the guerrillas of their responsibility in attacks on the press in Colombia. While the National Liberation Army (ELN) has been removed from the Reporters Without Borders list of press freedom predators as it is now holding peace talks with the government, both the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the paramilitaries are still on the list.

The Court focused its decision on the fact that the “racial gap in turnout” had been reduced in states subject to oversight since the 1980’s.I believe this is evidence that the Voting Rights Act has been working as intended and should have been left alone. The court’s dissent noted that 700 state and local voting changes were rejected by the Department of Justice between 1982 and 2006—strong evidence that the coverage formula and federal oversight has averted minority voter suppression of various forms.I certainly believe that the future of the Voting Rights Act is at risk. I call on Congress to set aside partisan difference and come together to redraft the coverage formula to restore this important piece of Civil Rights Legislation.” 23 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Depositions taken in ice cream truck accident civil lawsuit

first_img Twitter WhatsApp Local NewsCrime Pinterest Written depositions were taken this week in a civil suit involving a 23-year-old Odessa man accused of causing the deaths of three people in a fiery wreck last year.Mark Cason Garrett, 24, was arrested after a wreck that caused the deaths of three people and injured three of his passengers when his vehicle collided with an ice cream van, causing both vehicles to burst into flames.Garrett was indicted last July on 12 felony counts, including intoxication manslaughter, intoxication assault and aggravated assault.A day before his criminal indictment, a civil suit was filed by Anne Maria Garcia, the wife of Angel Pierce, one of the victims of the accident, against Garrett; Mark L. Garrett and Karen Garrett, his father and mother, Vertico Production Specialties, FTI Wholesale, Strategic Restaurant Concepts, SRC Beverage Corp. and Texas Roadhouse, court records show.The petition states that Garcia is seeking monetary relief of more than $1 million from the defendants.All of the defendants have each summarily denied the claims made by the plaintiffs and interveners, and the suit will go to a jury trial at a date not yet scheduled in the 70th District Court of Judge Denn Whalen.Garcia, 24, is suing on behalf of her husband, Angel Pierce, their daughter Katalina Pierce and their second child who she was still pregnant with at the time of his death. The petition for the suit states that on the day of the accident, Pierce, Barbara Ann Mackrell and Richard Jay Mackrell were riding in a leased ice cream truck owned and operated by the defendant FTI Wholesale near the 200 block of East Yukon Road when Garrett, reportedly intoxicated, was driving a vehicle owned by Vertico and his parents at an excessive rate of speed.The petition stated that Garrett then rear-ended the vehicle with the Mackrells and Pierce inside, after which, both vehicles caught fire, trapping all three inside their vehicle, leading to their deaths, and seriously injuring Garrett and his three passengers, Maurice Green, Mikaila Bazan and Alexis Dominguez.Garcia’s lawyer, Robert White, claimed negligence, wrongful death and damages to the estate of Angel Pierce, as well as Garcia and their children, the petition detailed. Garrett’s parents and their company, Vertico, are part of the lawsuit, as the petition states Garrett was driving a vehicle owned by both the company and his parents at the time of the accident.Garcia also filed suit against Texas Roadhouse, Strategic Restaurant Concepts, and SRC Beverage Corp. as they were owners of Bubba’s 33 in Odessa, where Garrett and his friends reportedly spent the evening before the accident, the petition detailed, claiming gross negligence.“Defendant BUBBA’S served alcoholic beverages to Defendant Cason Garrett at Defendant BUBBA’S location,” the petition stated, “even though it was or should have been apparent, that Defendant Cason Garrett was intoxicated to the extent that he presented a clear danger to himself and others.“Defendant BUBBA’S then allowed Defendant Cason Garrett to leave the establishment, enter his vehicle, and drive away while severely intoxicated. As such, Defendant BUBBA’S proximately caused Defendant Cason Garrett’s intoxication and all Plaintiffs’ injuries, deaths and damages,” the lawsuit states.FTI, the owner of the ice cream truck being driven by the victims, is also being sued, the petition states, as they reportedly negligently installed the ice cream equipment in the vehicle, which caused the vehicle to catch fire upon impact and trap the victims inside, leading to their deaths, and injuring Garrett and his passengers.Following Garcia’s initial suit, Mary Beck, the daughter of Barbara Mackrell; Andrea Gallardo; as next friend of Angel and Andres Gallardo, Pierce’s children; Green, Dominguez, and Kiley Jeter, the mother of Mikaila Buzan, all joined the suit, claiming damages as well.The remaining interveners are also seeking monetary relief of more than $1 million from the defendants.FTI has not only denied the claims, but also filed a counter-claim, stating that should Garrett’s family and the rest of the defendants be found guilty, they are entitled to compensation as well.Garrett is still facing criminal charges for the incident as well, but no trial date has been set yet. He most recently changed legal counsel, substituting Tony Chavez for Annemarie Gillespie, court records show.Jail records show Garrett has been in the Ector County Detention Center since September.Garrett also sparked public outrage before his indictment after social media posts and video showed him at a bar following the first time he made bail.He had his bond revoked and was sent back to jail that month for violating his bond conditions after reportedly testing positive for marijuana in a urine analysis test.

Person in Michigan wins Mega Millions’ $1 billion jackpot, 2nd-largest total ever

first_imgAlec051/iStockBy EMILY SHAPIRO and ROSA SANCHEZ, ABC News(NEW YORK) — One lucky person is taking home the Mega Millions jackpot cash.At around 1 a.m. ET Saturday, the list of lottery winners was announced. A person in Michigan won the jackpot, estimated at $1 billion or $739.6 million as a lump-sum, before taxes.The winning ticket was sold at a Kroger located in Novi, a northern suburb of Detroit — about a 30-minute drive from the city — the state lottery website confirmed. The winning numbers were 4-26-42-50-60 with a Mega Ball number of 24.The winner’s identity has not been revealed, but, per state lottery rules, they must come forward to claim their winnings.The winner will have two options to collect the record prize, the lottery said in a statement: “The first is an escalating annuity that offers an initial payment, then annual payments for 29 years. The player also may select a one-time cash payment of about $739 million. If a player selects the cash option, they will receive about $530 million after tax withholdings.”The Mega Millions jackpot increased to $1 billion for Friday night’s drawing.It is the second-largest jackpot in Mega Millions history and the third-largest in U.S. lottery history, Mega Millions lottery officials said. The $1.537 billion won by a person in South Carolina on Oct. 23, 2018 is still the world’s largest lotto prize ever awarded on a single ticket.This is the 18th Mega Millions jackpot won in Michigan, according to a lottery press release. The last winner in the state shared the prize with a Rhode Island winner on Oct. 13, 2017. Until Friday night’s win, the largest lottery prize ever won by a Michigan player was a $337 million Powerball jackpot. Donald Lawson, of Lapeer, won it on Aug. 15, 2012. On April 22, 2005, Port Huron couple Ralph and Mary Stebbins, won $208 million playing Mega Millions — it was the largest Mega Millions prize ever won in the state.Michigan is one of the original founding members of Mega Millions.“About 97 cents of every dollar spent on Lottery tickets is returned to the state in the form of contributions to the state School Aid Fund, prizes to players and commissions to vendors and retailers,” the state lottery said in a statement. “In the 2019 fiscal year, the Lottery provided more than $1 billion for Michigan’s public schools, its fifth record contribution in a row. Since it began in 1972, the Lottery has contributed more than $23 billion to support public education in Michigan.”The Match 5 winners were two people in Florida, one in Maryland, one in Missouri, one in New Jersey, one in New York and two in Pennsylvania. Each will take home $1 million. Also, two people — one in North Carolina and one in Virginia — won the Match 5 + Megaplier. Each will take home $2 million.On Wednesday, a winning Powerball ticket worth $731.1 million was sold in Allegany County, Maryland. The ticket was the fourth-largest in Powerball history and the sixth-largest in U.S. lottery history. Lottery winners in Maryland have the right to remain anonymous.The previous jackpot, which was worth $120 million, was won by a person in Wisconsin on Sept. 15, 2020.Powerball’s jackpot is resetting to $20 million for Saturday’s drawing.
