A six-story residential building collapsed Friday in Kenya's capital, officials said, with at least four people killed and others trapped in the debris. The scene was all too familiar in a city where an audit once found more than half of buildings unsafe for habitation.

Associated Press video showed people cheering as one dust-covered person was carried away on a stretcher, arms outstretched. Shortly afterward the crowd hushed as another person was carried away but covered completely by a blanket. Workers listened for voices from the rubble.

Nairobi county police chief Philip Ndolo said 21 people had been rescued, with some searchers using their bare hands to pick through the debris. Eight people were taken to a hospital, Nairobi regional commissioner Wilson Njenga said.

Wow:

An 8-year-old was strip-searched last month at a prison in Dillwyn, Va., The Virginian-Pilot reported.

The girl was visiting the Buckingham Correctional Center with her father’s girlfriend Nov. 24 when she was told the search was necessary for her to see her dad, according to the newspaper.

“It’s generally regarded in the criminal justice field that you do not strip-search young children," Daniel Macallair, the head of the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice, told The Pilot. “I mean most adults, certainly most adults who work in the field of child welfare, would know better — that this is an act of child abuse.”

The Virginia Department of Corrections acknowledged the incident and said it was a mistake and in violation of policy.

Panel Calls For Virginia To Purge Dozens Of Old Racist Laws by Nemacolin in news

You see, as soon as Democrats flip the state they do stuff like this:

The laws are still on the books in Virginia: Blacks and whites must sit in separate rail cars. They cannot use the same playgrounds, schools or mental hospitals. They can’t marry each other either.

The measures have not been enforced for decades, but they remain in the state’s official legal record. A state commission on Thursday recommended that dozens of such discriminatory statutes finally be repealed, in some cases more than a century after they were adopted.

Although “some of these acts were rendered null and void by an amended Virginia Constitution, by landmark civil rights cases or legislation, it’s clear that they are vestiges of Virginia’s segregationist past that still sit on the books. … We should not afford them the distinction of that official status,” said Chief Deputy Attorney General Cynthia Hudson, who led the panel of attorneys, judges, scholars and community leaders assigned to comb through the laws.

The commission, which issued an interim report Thursday and will continue its work, said the laws should be repealed in the legislative session that begins in January. Gov. Ralph Northam pledged to work with fellow Democrats who will control the General Assembly to do so.

Nepal’s Animal-Sacrifice Festival Slays On. But Activists Are Having an Effect. by Nemacolin in news

Yikes:

The animals were bused to southern Nepal in the thousands: rats, starved goats and pigeons stuffed in bags.

But that was just part of the sacrifice. A few hundred butchers then gathered on Tuesday with curved knives to decapitate water buffalo during what is believed to be the world’s largest ritual slaughter, the weekslong Gadhimai festival in the town of Bariyarpur, near Nepal’s southern border with India.

As the butchers hacked away in a closed arena about the size of a soccer field, devotees tried climbing walls topped with barbed wire to catch a glimpse.

“It’s always fun to behead animals,” said Ram Aashish Das, who said he had slaughtered 30 buffalo this week. “If the tradition is so bad, why are so many people coming here?”

Indictment Details How Emirates Sought Influence in 2016 Campaign by Nemacolin in news

The donors referred to their campaign contributions as baked goods, usually “baklava.” They called Hillary Clinton “Our Sister” or “the Big Lady.”

And they referred to their ultimate sponsor by the initials H.H., for His Highness, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed of the United Arab Emirates, one of the Pentagon’s closest partners in the Middle East and one of the biggest foreign spenders on influence in Washington.

“Will send you a note on the matter as per HH instruction,” George Nader, a trusted emissary for the crown prince, wrote in a text message in late June 2016, describing a million-dollar payment of “baklava,” according to an indictment unsealed by the Justice Department this week.

“I am leaving early morning back to join HH,” Mr. Nader wrote in another message a few months later to Ahmad Khawaja, a California businessman who was charged with acting as a conduit for Mr. Nader’s illegal contributions. “Have already told him about the Wonderful Event with Our Sister and he was thrilled and want to know all about it in person.”

Democratic presidential contender Michael Bloomberg unveiled a gun control policy on Thursday just steps from the site of one of Colorado’s worst mass shootings, calling for a ban on all assault weapons, mandatory permits for gun purchasers and a new position in the White House to coordinate gun violence prevention.

“I’ve been all in on the fight against gun violence for 15 years, and I’m just getting started,” Bloomberg declared. “As president, I will work to end the gun violence epidemic once and for all.”

Bloomberg, the billionaire former New York City mayor, entered the Democratic presidential primary less than two weeks ago. Gun violence has quickly emerged as a core issue for his presidential bid, as it has been for his political and philanthropic efforts for much of the last decade.

According to ProPublica, Carlos staggered to the toilet in his cell in the middle of the night at the Border Patrol station in Weslaco, Texas, and collapsed nearby. He remained still for more than four hours until his cellmate awakened at 6:05 a.m. and discovered him on the floor.

The rules of “collars for dollars” at NYPD Transit District 34 were clear.

Cops who arrested black men were rewarded with more overtime, a now-retired officer, Pierre Maximilien writes in an explosive declaration filed Monday in a discrimination lawsuit brought by Sgt. Edwin Raymond and three other cops.

The declaration is one of the latest developments in a long-running case brought by black and Hispanic cops who charge they were forced to arrest more blacks and Hispanics than other groups. They were treated harshly and denied promotions if they refused, the lawsuit alleges.

Asian, Jewish and white people — known as “soft targets” — were not to be slapped in cuffs. All cops in that district were to fill a collar quota, but black and Hispanic officers who didn’t meet expectations were treated more harshly by then-Commanding Officer Constantin Tsachas, Maximilien writes.

Hero filmed tackling London Bridge terrorist with a fire extinguisher was a heroin addict and convicted killer - before turning his life around after meeting Jack Merritt who died in the attack by Nemacolin in news

Thank God for Immigrants and Felons. They saved lives.

The fire extinguisher hero who doused London Bridge attacker Usman Khan is a killer on parole who was friends with the terrorist's victim Jack Merritt.

Mr Merritt, 25, who was murdered at Fishmongers' Hall last Friday, would have been immensely proud of John Crilly, his friends and family have revealed.

The 48-year-old, who is out on licence after serving 13 years for manslaughter, pursued Khan from the prisoner's rehabilitation conference after seeing Mr Merritt stabbed in the chest.

Crilly, a former heroin addict and career criminal, was originally sentenced to life in prison in 2005 after a 71-year-old pensioner was killed by his accomplice in a botched burglary.

*Crilly, who stole a blender and mobile phone, was jailed by Lord Brian Leveson for murder under the controversial joint enterprise doctrine. Leveson the very same judge who had freed Khan. *

West Virginia corrections officers give Nazi salute in class photo by Nemacolin in news

Several employees for the West Virginia Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation have been suspended after posing for a photo while performing a Nazi salute under the text “Hail Byrd!”

The picture, first published by WCHS-TV, features about 30 blurred faces and appears to have been recently taken for the state’s “Basic Training Class #18” — which ran from Oct. 21 to Nov. 27.

Republican Governor Jim Justice condemned the photo in a statement to the Washington Post, and has “ordered the termination” of participants in the offensive picture.

“I condemn the photo of Basic Training Class #18 in the strongest possible terms,” Justice said.

Cave Junction To Conduct Nighttime Policing With Security Cameras, Volunteers (Oregon) by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I have highlighted the important bits for you.

A rural Josephine County town plans to make up for the lack of police officers by installing security cameras that will be monitored by volunteers.

Sheriff’s deputies patrol Cave Junction — a rural city with nearly 2,000 people — during the day, but the city doesn’t have any patrols at night. If someone calls 9-1-1 in the middle of the night, they’ll likely have to wait at least 45 minutes before a state trooper shows up.

The city instead has a group of volunteers, called CJ Patrol, that patrols the city at night. City recorder Rebecca Patton says the city plans to install security cameras in public spaces so these volunteers can have more eyes on the streets.

“They could spend more time in the residential areas patrolling and making sure no one’s walking around and breaking into windows,” Patton says.

The cameras will be installed on city-owned street lights in parts of downtown.

CJ Patrol volunteers aren’t formally trained and don’t receive background checks. Still, Patton says she might do “some sort of background check” before giving volunteers access to public security cameras.

The group has served as a sort of neighborhood watch for the city for years. Patton says they classify “hardcore criminals” simply by looks.

“They can identify them by the way that they dress, because they have a certain apparel that they wear all the time, or the way they walk,” Patton says. “Sometimes they carry things all the time, it could be something as simple as a skateboard. They have learned how to identify these people very, very quickly, then they know how to respond.”

Local and national GOP leaders distanced themselves Wednesday from a Florida congressional candidate who sent a fundraising letter stating that “anti-American radical Democrats” should be hung for treason.

George Buck, one of six Republican primary candidates for Florida’s 13th Congressional District, referred to several Democrats but in particular to Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, D-Minnesota. Omar was born in Somalia and came to the U.S. as a child.

In the recent letter to potential donors, he said that “we should hang” Omar and other “traitors” for “abusing our system to destroy our country.” He mentioned “tinfoil hat accusations” against President Donald Trump, but didn’t elaborate.

Buck’s letter cited an unverified story that Omar is an asset of a foreign government who passed information to another foreign government. Omar has denied the report, calling it ”outlandishly absurd” in a statement.

In new NATO spat, Trump calls Canada’s Trudeau ‘two-faced’ by Nemacolin in news

Seriously, who picks a fight with Canada?

President Trump began his second day at the NATO summit by again taking a shot at another leader in the alliance, this time Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Trump reacted angrily Wednesday to a video that appeared to show Trudeau mocking him with other allies. “Well, he’s two-faced,” Trump complained to reporters. “He’s a nice guy. I find him to be a nice guy. But the truth is, I called him out on the fact that’s he’s not paying 2% and I guess he’s not very happy about it.”

Trump was referring to his demand that NATO members honor a goal to spend 2% of their gross domestic product on defense.

Trump’s comments came after a group of NATO leaders appeared to have been caught in an unguarded exchange on camera apparently gossiping about the president’s behavior.

The Labour leader - a long-standing Republican - was humiliatingly picked up on the claim during an ITV interview.

In a toe-curling exchange with presenter Julie Etchingham, Mr Corbyn said he watched the traditional broadcast in the morning.

But he was then brutally informed that the monarch's words air at 3pm in the afternoon.

As Mr Corbyn tried to bluster his way through the embarrassment by suggesting the afternoon programme is a repeat, Etchingham said: 'You don't watch it do you, Mr Corbyn?'

Two men drove from New York to Los Angeles in just 27 hours and 25 minutes last month, setting a new record in what is known among car enthusiasts as the Cannonball Run and beating the previous New York-to-LA land speed record by more than an hour, Road & Track reported.

Before they took the plunge and set off at 12:57 a.m. on Nov. 10 from Red Ball Garage on East 31st St. in New York, Arne Toman and Doug Tabbutt were just two car guys who loved illegally fast cross-country drives. But when they arrived at The Portofino Hotel in Redondo Beach, Calif., 27 hours and 25 minutes later, they became Cannonball legends.

“Don’t just meet your heroes, beat your heroes,” Tabbutt said in a mini-documentary that followed their record-breaking run on the car-focused YouTube channel VINwiki.

The record Toman and Tabbutt were racing for was set back in 2013, when Ed Bolian and Dave Black averaged a speed of 98 mph in their 28-hour, 50-minute Cannonball Run. In the VINwiki documentary, Toman described that mark as “pretty much unbeatable.”

Two dozen Baltimore jail officers indicted for allegedly using excessive force by Nemacolin in news

More than two dozen correctional officers in Baltimore were charged Tuesday with using excessive force on prisoners at state-operated jails in a city plagued by decades of institutional corruption, inside and outside jailhouse walls.

The 25 indicted officers are accused of assaulting and threatening detainees at correctional facilities, tampering with evidence and falsifying documents, said Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, whose office secured the indictments.

Maryland corrections secretary Robert Green said all the indicted officers have been on administrative leave since 2018, when the state Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services began investigating the allegations.

Gov. Larry Hogan said in a statement that his administration has no tolerance for corruption in the state’s correctional system.

A man walking up the street started shooting — “firing randomly as people were exiting the bus,” the acting police commissioner said — and he hit her in the left shoulder. The man was arrested at the scene and charged Sunday with murder, three counts of attempted murder, illegal possession of a gun, reckless endangerment, and related charges.

A second round of heavy snow over the Thanksgiving weekend dumped nearly 22 inches on Duluth, and city officials advised Sunday morning that some parts of the city were “completely impassable.”

Duluth officials asked residents to stay off the city’s main roads. Access to Duluth’s Park Point neighborhood across the Aerial Lift Bridge was limited to residents only, with police checking IDs at the bridge.

With 21.7 inches piled up by noon Sunday, it was among the Top 10 two-day snowfalls on record, said Justin Schultz, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Duluth.

The NWS in Duluth said it’s the ninth highest snowfall over two days since Nov. 1-2, 1991 when 32.6 inches fell.

Two children, parents dead in apparent triple murder-suicide in south Minneapolis by Nemacolin in news

Minneapolis also just suffered a mass-casualty fire last week.


Two boys were shot to death late Sunday morning outside a south Minneapolis house, where their parents were found dead later in the day in an apparent triple murder-suicide.

The ordeal began at 10 a.m. when shots were fired at the house in the 2700 block of Oakland Avenue South, which is just a block away from the American Swedish Institute.

A police officer at the scene was heard telling emergency dispatch minutes later that "Dad showed up, shot the kids and went in the house."

As police officers arrived, the boys, ages 8 and 11, were lying in the front yard. In what Police Chief Medaria Arradondo called an act of heroism, officers ran into the open and scooped them up, not knowing if they were dead or injured.

"This is something that will live with them forever," police spokesman John Elder said of the officers. The boys were placed in squad cars and pronounced dead.

Seems like bad weather + overloading the aircraft. Just like in maritime navigation, a schedule can be fatal in aviation too.

Atlantic Hurricane Season Comes to an End by Nemacolin in news

[–]Nemacolin[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Here is the start of the story for you:

The 2019 Atlantic hurricane season, which ends on November 30, was marked by tropical activity that churned busily from mid-August through October.

The season produced 18 named storms, including six hurricanes of which three were “major” (Category 3, 4 or 5). NOAA’s outlook called for 10-17 named storms, 5-9 hurricanes and 2-4 major hurricanes, and accurately predicted the overall activity of the season.

This year marks the fourth consecutive above-normal Atlantic hurricane season. The only other period on record that produced four consecutive above-normal seasons was 1998-2001. Also this year, five tropical cyclones formed in the Gulf of Mexico, which ties a record with 2003 and 1957 for the most storms to form in that region. Of those, three — Barry, Imelda and Nestor — made landfall in the U.S.

Muslim prison inmates fed pork during Ramadan in US by [deleted] in news

Here is the first part for you:

  • A federal judge granted a restraining order on Thursday (May 24) forcing prison guards in Alaska to stop giving Muslim inmates pork as they break their fasts during Ramadan, rights campaigners said.*

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) filed a lawsuit on Tuesday claiming Anchorage Correctional Complex had violated constitutional prohibitions against "cruel and unusual punishment".

CAIR said the US District Court for Alaska had granted its request for an emergency temporary order requiring guards to provide adequate meals in accordance with government health guidelines.

"CAIR has reported an unprecedented spike in bigotry targeting American Muslims and members of other minority groups since the election of Donald Trump as President," the Washington-based organisation said in a statement.
