In a letter to Falwell, shared with The Associated Press, 35 faith leaders and former student-athletes told Falwell that his past comments “have repeatedly violated and misrepresented" Christian principles. “You have belittled staff, students and parents, you have defended inappropriate behaviors of politicians, encouraged violence, and disrespected people of other faiths,” they wrote, advising Falwell that “your heart is in politics more than Christian academia or ministry.”

  • Biden Proposes Training Cops to Shoot Attackers in the Leg to Reduce Fatalities      Mon, 01 Jun 2020 15:38:55 -0400

    Biden Proposes Training Cops to Shoot Attackers in the Leg to Reduce FatalitiesJoe Biden on Monday suggested that police forces could train officers to shoot attackers in the legs in order to reduce potential fatalities.There is "the idea that instead of standing there and teaching a cop when there's an unarmed person, coming at him with a knife or something, to shoot him in the leg instead of in the heart," Biden said. "There's a lot of different things [policies] that can change."Biden made his remarks while meeting with African American community leaders at the Bethel AME Church in Wilmington, Del. The former vice president was discussing the widespread protests touched off by the killing of George Floyd, an African American man, at the hands of white police officers in Minneapolis, Minn.Protests have spread from Minneapolis to major U.S. cities including New York, Chicago, Washington D.C., and Los Angeles. The demonstrations have been widely varied in makeup, with some instances of peaceful protests and others that have devolved into riots with widespread looting.Members of Biden's staff have donated to groups attempting to free jailed rioters on bail. Campaign spokesman Andrew Bates told Reuters that Biden opposes cash bail as the equivalent of a "modern day debtors prison." It was not clear whether the donations were coordinated by the campaign or made individually.President Trump condemned the donations on Saturday, saying they "would financially support the mayhem that is hurting innocent people and destroying what good people spent their lives building."

  • Tom Cotton Floats Invoking the Insurrection Act to Quell Riots      Mon, 01 Jun 2020 11:52:06 -0400

    Tom Cotton Floats Invoking the Insurrection Act to Quell RiotsSenator Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) on Monday proposed invoking the Insurrection Act to quell the riots overtaking cities across the country.The 1807 law gives the president authority to order troops into the interior of the U.S. to put down rebellion. While use of the law is rare, then-president George H.W. Bush invoked the law in 1992 to send troops into Los Angeles during the Rodney King riots."What the president can do…[is say that] the rioting, the anarchy, and the looting ends tonight,” Cotton said on Fox News. “If local law enforcement is overwhelmed, if local politicians will not do their most basic job to protect our citizens, let’s see how these anarchists respond when the 101st Airborne is on the other side of the street."Cotton later added on Twitter, "and, if necessary, the 10th Mountain, 82nd Airborne, 1st Cav, 3rd Infantry—whatever it takes to restore order. No quarter for insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters."Rioting and looting occurred in major U.S. cities over the weekend, including Washington D.C., New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles. New York mayor Bill de Blasio on Monday suggested that the city might enforce a curfew if the riots continue. NYPD counterterrorism chief John Miller on Sunday told reporters that a group of "anarchists" had coordinated a looting spree on wealthy neighborhoods, after the upscale Soho district saw widespread break-ins.The riots have grown out of protests sparked by the death of George Floyd, an African-American man, who was killed during his arrest by white police officers in Minneapolis, Minn., last week. Former officer Derek Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder after video emerged showing him kneeling on Floyd's neck for several minutes as Floyd pleaded "I can't breathe."

  • Boris Johnson says 3m people in Hong Kong will get path to British citizenship      Tue, 02 Jun 2020 19:57:19 -0400

    Boris Johnson says 3m people in Hong Kong will get path to British citizenshipBoris Johnson is ready to open the door to nearly three million Hong Kong citizens if China imposes a new security law that critics say would rob the territory of its autonomy. The Prime Minister, writing in The Times, has offered to make what he says would be one of the "biggest changes" in the history of the British visa system to allow 2.85 million Hong Kong citizens the chance of fully-fledged citizenship. The move, which represents a dramatic escalation in the stand-off between the UK and China, would put Hongkongers "on the route to citizenship", said the Conservative Party leader. China's ceremonial legislature, the National People's Congress, endorsed a security law for Hong Kong earlier this week that has strained relations with the UK and the US. The law will alter the territory's mini-constitution, or Basic Law, to require its government to enforce measures to be decided later by Chinese leaders.

Thin Blue Line USA, the group that sells the flags, says the thin blue line represents officers in the line of duty and the black represents fallen officers.Pictures of the flag flying outside a local justice complex went viral, stoking anger nationwide among people protesting the death in Minneapolis of George Floyd, a 46-year-old African American man, the latest case to fuel the Black Lives Matter movement against police brutality.Cincinnati, has like scores of other major cities, been the setting for protest over the last three nights which has seen protesters and officers injured.> The Cincinnati police pulled down the American flag at the justice center and replaced it with the thin blue line.

The Thin Blue Line was raised by our deputies to honor the CPD Officer who was shot. The flag has been removed and we will replace it with the American Flag in the morning.”Local media reported that the officer in question had been struck on his helmet by a bullet, but was not injured.Chris Seelbach, chair of the Cincinnati city council, tweeted that the raising of the flag would make unrest worse in the city. “[It] should have been replaced with American flag immediately. Not replaced with a politically charged blue lives matter flag when thousands are protesting in our streets because BlackLivesMatter. Sheriff Neil has only made things worse. Again.”The flag has been a previous center of controversy.In Portland, Oregon, last year, a government employee won $100,000 in a settlement after she alleged she was bullied by fellow employees who displayed the flag in her office. As the Associated Press reported then, in her lawsuit against Multnomah county, Karimah Guion-Pledgure said the flag demeaned the Black Lives Matter movement.

The flag has been removed and we will replace it with the American Flag in the morning.”Local media reported that the officer in question had been struck on his helmet by a bullet, but was not injured.Chris Seelbach, chair of the Cincinnati city council, tweeted that the raising of the flag would make unrest worse in the city. “[It] should have been replaced with American flag immediately. Not replaced with a politically charged blue lives matter flag when thousands are protesting in our streets because BlackLivesMatter. Sheriff Neil has only made things worse. Again.”The flag has been a previous center of controversy.In Portland, Oregon, last year, a government employee won $100,000 in a settlement after she alleged she was bullied by fellow employees who displayed the flag in her office. As the Associated Press reported then, in her lawsuit against Multnomah county, Karimah Guion-Pledgure said the flag demeaned the Black Lives Matter movement.


     

  • Cops Beaten, Shot, Rammed by SUVs as George Floyd Protests Boil Over      Tue, 02 Jun 2020 03:09:39 -0400

    Cops Beaten, Shot, Rammed by SUVs as George Floyd Protests Boil OverViolent factions attacked police officers across the U.S. over the last 24 hours as demonstrations against the death of an unarmed black man in police custody have spiraled out of control.George Floyd, 46, died after former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was caught on video kneeling on his neck for nearly nine minutes while he was handcuffed on Memorial Day. Chauvin has been arrested and charged with third-degree murder, but three other officers who also took part in the brutality or watched on have been fired but not arrested for their role, prompting anger among the demonstrators.In Las Vegas, an officer responding to a looting incident was reportedly shot in the head early Tuesday after exchanging gunfire with an angry mob, according to several Nevada news sources. County Sheriff Joe Lombardo told the Las Vegas Review Journal that the officer survived. “He is in extremely critical condition on life support,” Lombardo said “This is a sad night for our LVMPD family and a tragic night for our community.”Two police officers in Richmond, Virginia, and a third person were reportedly shot during clashes early Tuesday morning. Their condition is unclear. Late Monday night, video of a police officer apparently being run over by an SUV in the Bronx went viral. In the video, which has not been verified by The Daily Beast, an officer is struck by a speeding SUV and left in the middle of an intersection. Moments later, a New York City Police Department vehicle arrives and puts the officer, whose condition is unknown, in the back. In Buffalo, two officers were deliberately targeted by a car in front of the E District police station. New York State Police confirmed to the media that one was a trooper and the other a Buffalo Police officer. Both were taken to the Erie County Medical Center. Both have serious injuries and are in stable condition, according to WTHR News. Posts on social media also captured a fallen officer on Madison Avenue in New York. Details and the circumstances of that officer’s condition are unknown. The New York City Sergeant’s Benevolent Association tweeted a photo of an officer being attacked by two looters in the Bronx late Monday night. The officer survived that incident and pulled his weapon after the perpetrators ran off, but did not appear to retaliate. Early Monday morning, another officer was rammed by an SUV as he tried to make an arrest after giving chase to looters. Video of that incident posted by New York Daily News shows an SUV with Wisconsin license plates speeding away after the hit and run. That officer was taken to Bellevue Hospital and remains in stable condition.Elsewhere, four police officers were shot in downtown St. Louis after a gunfight erupted as they tried to disperse violent crowds with tear gas and flash bangs. Largely peaceful protests have been held in all 50 states, but violent rioters and looters have moved in as night falls even as curfews are in effect. Thousands of National Guard soldiers who have been called up to bolster local law enforcement have also been involved in skirmishes. In some cases, police have acted aggressively towards peaceful protesters. Over the weekend, a New York City Police Department squad vehicle rammed into a group and on Monday, law enforcement in Washington, D.C. used teargas to scatter peaceful protesters to clear a space for President Donald Trump to take a photo in front of a defaced church.Police have also marched with peaceful protesters and in cities including New York, Portland and Philadelphia, where many have taken a knee against police brutality. On Tuesday, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that New York City will be subject to an 8 p.m. curfew throughout the week. He said 700 people were arrested Monday night—the highest numbers since the protests started last week.“We will not tolerate violence of any kind. We will not tolerate attacks on police officers. We will not tolerate hatred being created,” de Blasio said. “We saw vicious attacks on police officers. That is wholly unacceptable. That does not represent the people of this city. Anyone who attacks a police officer attacks all of us.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

  • Exclusive: U.S. small business program handed out virus aid to many borrowers twice      Tue, 02 Jun 2020 09:05:21 -0400

    Exclusive: U.S. small business program handed out virus aid to many borrowers twiceA technical snafu in a U.S. government system caused many small businesses to receive loans twice or more under a federal aid program to help businesses hurt by the COVID-19 pandemic, nearly a dozen people with knowledge of the matter said. The money mistakenly handed out could amount to hundreds of millions of dollars that the government and lenders - which made the loans - have been trying to identify and recover in recent weeks, one of the people briefed on the matter said. The technical issue and scale of the resulting duplicate deposits made under the Small Business Administration's $660 billion Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) have not been previously reported.

  • Hong Kong leader accuses international community of double standards over US riots      Tue, 02 Jun 2020 03:52:39 -0400

    Hong Kong leader accuses international community of double standards over US riotsHong Kong leader Carrie Lam accused foreign governments for having “double standards,” criticising the US for condemning Beijing’s move to impose national security laws to quell protests, while taking its own severe steps to curb unrest at home. “They are very concerned about their own national security, but on our national security...they look through coloured glasses,” said Ms Lam in a weekly press conference. She also warned that US sanctions against Hong Kong would mean “hurting their own interests.” Last week, the US declared that it would axe preferential treatment over worries the global financial hub no longer remained sufficiently autonomous from mainland China, ruled by the Communist Party, with the onset of the national security law. Beijing, no longer willing to tolerate dissenting views in Hong Kong, has defended the national security law as a necessity to restore order. Ms Lam is expected to visit Beijing Wednesday and meet with officials about the law. Tensions over Hong Kong is the latest flashpoint in a broader US-China row, with Chinese officials and state media in recent days accusing the US of hypocrisy. Beijing has revelled in the mass riots erupting in the US over the death of a black man while in police custody.

  • 8 Minutes and 46 Seconds: How George Floyd Was Killed in Police Custody      Mon, 01 Jun 2020 16:33:08 -0400

    8 Minutes and 46 Seconds: How George Floyd Was Killed in Police CustodyOn May 25, Minneapolis police officers arrested George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, after a deli employee called 911, accusing him of buying cigarettes with a counterfeit $20 bill. Seventeen minutes after the first squad car arrived at the scene, Floyd was unconscious and pinned beneath three police officers, showing no signs of life.By combining videos from bystanders and security cameras, reviewing official documents and consulting experts, The New York Times reconstructed in detail the minutes leading to Floyd's death. The Times' video shows officers taking a series of actions that violated the policies of the Minneapolis Police Department and turned fatal, leaving Floyd unable to breathe, even as he and onlookers called out for help.The day after Floyd's death, the Police Department fired all four of the officers involved in the episode, and on Friday the Hennepin County attorney, Mike Freeman, announced murder and manslaughter charges against Derek Chauvin, the officer who can be seen most clearly in witness videos pinning Floyd to the ground. Chauvin, who is white, kept his knee on Floyd's neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, according to the criminal complaint against him. The Times' video shows that Chauvin did not remove his knee even after Floyd lost consciousness, and for a full minute after paramedics arrived at the scene.The three other former officers, Thomas Lane, J. Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao -- all of whom can be seen in The Times' video participating in Floyd's arrest -- remain under investigation.This article originally appeared in The New York Times.(C) 2020 The New York Times Company
