La obispa sufragánea de Maryland enfrenta numerosos cargos por accidente…

first_img Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Por Mary Frances Schjonberg Posted Jan 12, 2015 Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Marilyn Mosby, fiscal estatal de Baltimore, anuncia el 9 de junio los cargos iniciales contra Heather Cook, obispa sufragánea de Maryland, en el accidente fatal en que murió un ciclista. Junto a ella se encuentran la teniente coronel Melisa Hyatt y Don Giblin, jefe de la sección de homicidios de la Fiscalía del Estado. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Nota de la redacción: Este artículo fue actualizado a las 6:13 P.M.[Episcopal News Service – Baltimore, Maryland] Heather Cook, obispa sufragánea de Maryland, se entregó a los agentes de la autoridad en Baltimore horas después de que fuera acusada el 9 de enero de ocho delitos asociados presuntamente con un accidente fatal en el cual ella abandonó el lugar de los hechos luego de atropellar y matar a un ciclista.Cook se presentó a la policía en la tarde del viernes y fue instruida de cargos en la Oficina Central de Procesamiento, dijo la policía a The Baltimore Sun. Se espera que un comisionado del tribunal determine su fianza por la noche, dijo una portavoz de la judicatura, según informó el Sun.Horas antes, la fiscal estatal de la ciudad de Baltimore, Marilyn Mosby, decía en una conferencia de prensa que se había encausado a Cook en el tribunal de distrito, a la cual se le acusaba de cuatro delitos penales: homicidio imprudente por negligencia en la conducción de un vehículo (que conlleva una pena máxima de 10 años de prisión o una multa de $5.000 o ambas cosas), homicidio culposo por negligencia en la conducción de un vehículo (tres años o $5.000 de multa, o ambas cosas), conducción [de un vehículo] de manera negligente bajo los efectos del alcohol que da lugar a un homicidio (cinco años y $5.000 de fianza, o ambas cosas) y homicidio por negligencia que involucra un auto o una embarcación mientras se tiene la capacidad [física o mental] disminuida (tres años o $5.000, o ambas cosas).Cook también enfrenta cargos por no permanecer en la escena de un accidente que ha dado lugar a una muerte, por no permanecer en la escena de un accidente que ha dado lugar a lesiones corporales, por enviar mensajes de texto mientras conducía dando con ello lugar a un accidente con muertes o lesiones graves y de conducir bajo los efectos del alcohol.Representantes de los medios de información abarrotan, el 9 de enero, el pequeño salón de las conferencias de prensa en las oficinas de la fiscal estatal de Baltimore Marilyn Mosby. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Mosby dijo que una prueba con el alcoholímetro a la que se sometiera a Cook después del accidente arrojó que la obispa tenía un contenido de alcohol en la sangre de .22 por ciento. El límite legal en Maryland es de .08 por ciento.Thomas Palermo, de 41 años, casado y padre de dos hijos pequeños, falleció en la tarde del 27 de diciembre en un hospital cercano a la escena del accidente. Murió de lesiones en la cabeza sufridas  en el choque.Mosby recordó a los presentes en la conferencia de prensa que Cook se considera inocente hasta que se sea encontrada culpable, si tal cosa sucede, más allá de toda duda razonable.Mosby dijo también que, en su reunión con la familia Palermo el 8 de enero, “les garanticé que buscaríamos que se hiciera justicia”.La fiscal estatal resumió el accidente, citando la declaración de causa probable que se presentó en el tribunal. Dijo que tanto Palermo como Cook viajaban en dirección sur por la Avenida Roland, con Palermo en la senda de las bicicletas y Cook en la del tránsito motorizado. Cook, que en ese momento estaba escribiendo un mensaje de texto mientras conducía, golpeó la parte trasera de la bicicleta de Palermo. La colisión causó que Palermo chocara contra el techo y el parabrisas del Subaru 2001 de Cook, explicó Mosby. [Él golpe] lo lanzó a la derecha antes de ir a dar finalmente sobre la cuneta.Ella agregó que la declaración de causa probable alega que Cook no se detuvo en la escena del accidente y siguió rodando por la Avenida Roland con rumbo sur. Unos 30 minutos después, volvió al lugar, viajando por [la avenida] Roland con rumbo norte, pero pasó de largo y siguió con dirección norte hasta su residencia, según Mosby.  La cronología en la declaración de causa probable alega que Cook abandonó el lugar por un período de tiempo más largo del que se reportó antes en varios noticieros.Cook salió de su residencia poco después de llegar allí y regresó al lugar de los hechos. Mosby dijo que luego algunos agentes del Departamento de la Policía de Baltimore llevaron a Cook a una estación de policía donde la sometieron a una prueba de la llevaron a una estación de policía donde la sometieron a una prueba de alcoholímetro que arrojó el resultado de .22 porciento.Mosby agregó que el casó se presentará ante un gran jurado que debe elegirse el 12 de enero. El jurado pudiera sobreseer algunos de los cargos y añadir otros o ambas cosas.Mosby, de 34 años, actuaba en su primer día como Fiscal del Estado en la ciudad de Baltimore, ya que había jurado su cargo el día anterior.Inmediatamente después de que Mosby concluyera su conferencia de prensa, Eugene Sutton, obispo [episcopal] de la Diócesis de Maryland dio a conocer una declaración en la que decía en parte: “Sepan que estamos profundamente afligidos por todos esto, y que lloramos por la familia Palermo, por nuestra hermana Heather y por toda la comunidad que sufre.“Nuestro Señor Jesús sería una presencia restauradora en medio de esta trágica situación, y buscamos la manera de andar en sus pasos en los días y meses que tenemos por delante”, y añadió: “Al hacer esto estamos siendo verdaderamente la Iglesia, y siempre nos guiarán nuestros esenciales valores cristianos de responsabilidad personal, compasión y respeto por la ley”.Neva Rae Fox, encargada de relaciones públicas de la Iglesia, también emitió una declaración en la que reconocía los cargos y decía “como esto es un asunto legal, no haremos comentarios sobre los cargos ni sobre los procedimientos que seguirán”.“La obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori mantiene una relación canónica y pastoral con la obispa Cook”, dijo Fox. “Como resultado, a Cook no se le permitirá ejercer su ministerio ordenado en el futuro inmediato”.Sutton le había dado a Cook licencia administrativa poco después del accidente y el proceso disciplinario de la Iglesia Episcopal ya se ha puesto en marcha. El Título IV de los Cánones de la Iglesia Episcopal rige la disciplina eclesiástica de los miembros del clero. El Canon 17 del Título IV describe el proceso disciplinario de los obispos. El Título IV exige confidencialidad en este punto del proceso.Cook se convirtió en la primera mujer en llegar al episcopado en su diócesis cuando fue consagrada el 6 de septiembre. La biografía de Cook puede verse aquí en la página web de la diócesis.El accidente fatal del 27 de diciembre sacó a relucir un incidente de tránsito de 2010 en el cual Cook fue arrestada por conducir bajo los efectos del alcohol y por posesión de marihuana. En ese incidente, Cook se declaró culpable de conducir en estado de embriaguez y le retiraron los cargos por posesión de marihuana. Un juez la sentenció el 25 de octubre de 2010 a pagar una multa de $300 y a libertad condicional vigilada. Los archivos del tribunal que se pueden consultar vía Internet no precisan la duración ni las condiciones de la libertad condicional.Un comunicado que se divulgó en la página web de la diócesis el 30 de diciembre decía que durante el proceso de búsqueda que dio lugar a que Cook resultara electa obispa sufragánea en 2014, ella había “revelado todo” [lo concerniente ] al arresto de 2010 por el cual el tribunal le impuso “libertad condicional previa al juicio”.“Después de una extensa discusión y discernimiento acerca del incidente, y luego de ulterior investigación, que incluyó un extenso examen de antecedentes y de [su] perfil psicológico, se determinó que este único error no debería de impedirle [a Cook] el que fuera tomada en consideración como [posible] líder”, decía el comunicado.Sin embargo, a la convención que eligió a Cook, el 2 de mayo de 20014, no se le informó sobre el arresto de 2010, confirmó a ENS el 9 de enero Sharon Tillman, directora de comunicaciones de la diócesis.La información anterior de ENS sobre el accidente se encuentra aquí.– La Rda.

Robbie Coleman’s great finish against the Chiefs

first_imgTuesday Feb 22, 2011 Robbie Coleman’s great finish against the Chiefs Young Robbie Coleman scored one of the tries of the weekend as the Brumbies got their Super Rugby campaign off to a positive start with a 28-20 victory over the Chiefs in Canberra on Saturday.Coleman, the 20 year old Australian Sevens star, cut through the defence then stepped veteran All Black fullback Mils Muliaina with ease as he finished off a great try that started with a turnover from a huge Julian Salvi tackle earlier.In fact there were a few big tackles before the try came about, including one from Fritz Leethat rocked Pat McCabe as he got ball and all. He did well to retain possession though, which led to Coleman sniping through a few forwards then stepping the last man.It was his debut start for the Brumbies and despite weighing just 83kgs and opposing Tana Umaga, Coleman managed to make an explosive impact. Coach Andy Friend wasn’t too surprised, says hes always been impressed by the young flyer.“Robbie’s got real speed,” Friend said. “He’s got similar footwork and vision to Matt Giteau. That combination worked well. They pose a real threat.“Every time Robbie has been asked to step up to another level, whether it’s the Australian under-20s or the sevens, he has done it, which is the sign of a quality footballer.”Coleman looks to be yet another talented young Australian back that will no doubt terrorise defences for many years to come. He’ll be one to keep an eye on this season.

Currie Cup winning flyhalf swaps one Sharks for another as deal is announced

first_imgMonday Oct 29, 2018 Currie Cup winning flyhalf swaps one Sharks for another as deal is announced The Natal Sharks won away from home on Saturday to pick up their first Currie Cup title since 2013 as they beat Western Province 17-12 in Cape Town. It was sweet revenge for the Sharks, who beat the defending champions after losing to them in the final last year. ADVERTISEMENTThe first half was a scrappy affair in sweltering heat but tries by Sharks hooker Akker van der Merwe and flanker Tyler Paul brought things to life in the second, with number ten Robert du Preez slotting his kicks.The victory was the eighth overall Currie Cup title for the Sharks and their first in five years.Du Preez, who ironically kicked the winning points for Western Province last year before switching to the Durban based outfit, is the son of coach and former Sharks and Springboks scrumhalf Robert [snr], and brother of twins Dan and Jean-Luc, who also played in the final.Today it was announced that he will be heading to Sale Sharks in England on a short term deal.Capped by the Springboks last year, the 25-year-old will arrive in the UK this week in order to prepare for the upcoming Gallagher Premiership games.Sale Sharks’ Director of Rugby Steve Diamond said, “Rob comes with an outstanding CV and will be a fantastic injury replacement for AJ MacGinty. He arrives at the end of this week for three months.ADVERTISEMENT“I have been very impressed with Kieran Wilkinson who has done a great job stepping in at ten, but with some important games coming up, Rob will bring more experience to our squad.“We look forward to welcoming him to the North West of England.”On the Currie Cup final victory, Natal Sharks coach Du Preez senior said how proud he is of his sons.“I’m very proud of Robert junior, I’m very proud of Jean-Luc and Dan. It’s just an absolute honour to have won this title. I’m a very proud dad.ADVERTISEMENT“It was definitely a relief to have Robert junior in my team because I’ve never won when I coached against him in the final when he was playing for Maties and obviously Province. I’m glad for him to win these back-to-back Currie Cup titles.”Catch up on extended Currie Cup final highlights below [12 minutes] credit: supersport Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

Drug-induced homicide laws kill

first_imgAlmost everyone knows that the United States is home to the most destructive, most negative reaction to drugs and drug use — the so-called War on Drugs. But fewer know that fatal overdoses can carry a charge of drug-induced homicide, laws that would punish those who provide drugs that cause fatal overdoses.Rally in support of safe injection site in Philadelphia.Nobody who shares drugs thinks that their drugs will be the ones to kill someone.  They do not intend to murder anyone. Yet they can be punished as though they were the root cause of said overdose death, rather than the drugs themselves.In Pennsylvania and New Jersey, where the opioid epidemic has ravaged small towns as well as cities like Philadelphia and Camden, N. J., punishment under these laws hasn’t stopped overdose deaths. They actually could end up forcing more overdose deaths, as people flee out of fear of being arrested and charged.As the opioid epidemic gets worse, these laws against “drug-induced homicide” get stricter and stricter. This forces people to make hard decisions that they would ordinarily not make.An example of this happened outside Philadelphia, in Montgomery County. Joshua Benner and Ronald Shock bought drugs from Philadelphia’s “Needle Park,” McPherson Square. They were using drugs with their friend Ramon Morales when Morales lost consciousness and could not be revived by rumored means – that a cold water shower could wake someone up from an overdose. Both Benner and Shock believed they were doing all they could to try and revive Morales, but when it became obvious they couldn’t revive him, they dropped him in an area near a hospital.Pennsylvania punishes drug delivery that results in death. Its “Good Samaritan” drug laws – that shield users from being punished for people overdosing – do not shield people who have provided drugs to those who are overdosing. Benner and Shock were afraid of what could happen had they stayed with Morales or had they called the authorities. If the War on Drugs and its strict laws were eased, then Morales might still be alive today.The drug warriors have sworn up and down that if the United States were to make its War on Drugs laws stricter, people would be deterred from using or buying drugs for themselves and others. But this is not the case. When dealers are arrested under these laws, all that happens is that new dealers take their place.Despite 40 years of the War on Drugs, we are even worse off with our drug problem. There are numerous stories of people being charged for sharing drugs with friends and partners. There are also stories of racial bias in charging people for having delivered drugs to others.Racist narrative targets Black peopleIn Maine, in response to the overdose crisis, former Gov. Paul Le Page accused “Black dealers” and “pushers” of being the main cause of the overdose crisis, and asked for even stricter laws to punish them. A politician openly called for the strict punishing of Black people, despite the fact that Black people are not responsible for the drug problem. Prosecutors, politicians, and others who push this racist narrative have not acknowledged that their idea is flat out wrong.What does work against drugs? Strategies against fatal drug misuse, like the distribution of Narcan and fentanyl test strips, plus the opening of safe injection sites help prevent drug overdoses and deaths. Studies have shown that strict War on Drugs policies do not help. Tens of thousands of people have died, and it’s unknown how many of them died due to people’s fear of getting help. But we do know that it makes an impact on whether or not a drug overdose patient gets help in time.We cannot let the ruling class imprison and torture more people in the name of the War on Drugs. We must push back against laws that say that drug delivery resulting in fatal overdoses is a crime. We need to push for more healing and more justice-oriented laws that allow for people to get help for their friends, partners, loved ones, and even for strangers when they overdose. It would make such an important dent in the scourge that is drug abuse.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Human Rights Council resolution on blasphemy

first_img RSF_en News March 29, 2010 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Human Rights Council resolution on blasphemy Organisation center_img Reporters Without Borders is extremely concerned by a resolution condemning “defamation of religions” which the United Nations Human Rights Council adopted on 25 March. It was submitted by Pakistan on behalf of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC).“Under the pretext of trying to reconcile freedom of expression and religious freedom, some member states are establishing a mechanism with the sole aim of forbidding criticism of religions, above all Islam,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This is a dangerous process that needs to be stopped. Respect for freedom of expression is as fundamental as respect for religious freedom. One cannot exist without the other.“Caricature, artistic freedom, the right of opinion and all other spheres of intellectual activity that constitute freedom of expression are endangered by this resolution. Its unfortunate result will be to even curb exchanges of views within religions while invoking the need to protect them. Will it be possible to debate ideas within a religion without running the risk of being accused of defamation by the dominant group seeking to impose its viewpoint?“Respect for free expression and democratisation is conspicuous by its absence in several OIC member countries. They use blasphemy laws for political ends, in order to ban all forms of debate and reinforce their authority. Journalist Mohageg Nassab had to flee Afghanistan because his newspaper, Women’s Rights, dared to call for a stop to the stoning of women. As a result, he was convicted of insulting Islam and sentenced to death. The authorities in many countries cast any debate about intellectual or social issues as a religious debate – a practical way of banning any criticism of the way they govern and preventing any evolution in moral standards.“This kind of resolution gives governments that show little respect for human rights more scope to continue discriminatory policies against religious minorities, dissidents and secularists. One may also wonder whether multinationals will not be tempted to introduce forms of prior censorship to avoid violating an international resolution. We have already seen leading international corporations filter their content to avoid upsetting certain markets, as in the case of cartoonist Pierre Kroll, some of whose bawdy drawings were censored by Apple from an iPhone app.”Reporters Without Borders also regrets the political aspects of the resolution, which was the outcome of internal UN machinations, and reminds member states of the danger of manipulating such sensitive issues for their own agendas.“Certain countries within the Human Rights Council have been pushing for the adoption of such a resolution for years,” the press freedom organisation said. “For them, this is just the first step. We will be watching for a second draft resolution in the coming months that could lead to an enforceable international instrument banning defamation of religions.”Reporters Without Borders is disturbed to see an organisation such as the UN Human Rights Council undermine its own credibility. “The blasphemy resolution’s adoption raises serious questions about the council’s credibility at a time when Iran, a country that can give no one lessons in human rights, is a candidate to be a member with a good chance of being accepted. We hope the council will not suffer the sad fate of its predecessor, the Human Rights Commission, which fell victim to self-serving policies and had to dissolve itself in 2006.”Blasphemy is an ambiguous concept open to different interpretations, but Ireland nonetheless adopted a law last December making blasphemy punishable by a fine of up to 25,000 euros. Poland’s criminal code and broadcasting law have for several years required the Polish media to “respect Christian values.” Punishments for offending religious feelings range from a fine to two years in prison.

Why a wellbeing recovery, as well as an economic one, will be needed post pandemic

But, as Vicky Walker argues, if UK plc is to get back on its feet post pandemic, it will need to focus on a wellbeing recovery as much as an economic one.We all know the financial impact of Covid-19 on the UK economy has been significant. Back in July – even before factoring in the cost of the second wave of the virus and second national lockdown in England – the Office for Budget Responsibility put the nation’s coronavirus bill at more than £192bn, as the government sought to protect the NHS and give financial support to businesses and workers.About the authorVicky Walker is head of people at Westfield HealthThere is much debate, too, about how our economy will eventually recover, and whether it is likely to be a V-shaped recovery (a sharp but relatively brief period of economic decline followed by a strong recovery) or a longer U-shaped return to growth.Within this, however, one critical – but often overlooked – element in this recovery cycle is the role of employees and how workforces are supported from a wellbeing perspective going forward.It has been well-documented that the pandemic has put heavy pressure on mental and physical health. To cite just one example, in June the Office for National Statistics reported that one in five adults had experienced some form of depression since Covid-19 appeared and that 84% of adults admitted to feeling stressed or anxious.Growing employee wellbeing-related worrriesRemote working, mounting job fears, home schooling pressures and ongoing health concerns have combined to create new employee wellbeing-related worries that businesses must be attuned to.Yet employers, with the help of OH practitioners, are in fact ideally placed to work to mitigate this dangerous deterioration in mental health and wellbeing.This can be through providing reassurance and transparency in uncertain times but also through proactively working to support mental health and wellbeing. This could be in the form of mental health first aid training, the provision of employee assistance programmes, resilience training, financial wellbeing support, access to occupational health, or a combination of all of the above.Employee wellbeing must become a central and strategic business priority so that companies and employees can work together to overcome the extraordinary circumstances we are in.And, positively, we are already seeing evidence that organisations are reacting to the current challenges by proactively investing in wellbeing initiatives.For example, research for our Divided Together report shows that 35% of HR leaders across the UK have increased their wellbeing budgets in the past few months, with the same percentage planning to continue investing into the future.However, with greater wellbeing leading to better retention rates and higher productivity, wellbeing needs to be seen as a core, strategic priority that is handled across all departments, not just something left to HR or wellbeing representatives.Ultimately, if, as a nation, we want to see a V-shaped economic recovery from the pandemic, it may be that we’ll need to focus on – and invest in – generating and sustaining a V-shaped wellbeing recovery as well.References“Cost of tackling coronavirus pandemic jumps to £192bn as UK heads for worst economic crash in 300 years”, Politics Home, July 2020, https://www.politicshome.com/news/article/cost-of-pandemic-jumps-to-192bn-as-uk-heads-for-worst-economic-crash-in-300-years“Coronavirus and anxiety, Great Britain: 3 April 2020 to 10 May 2020”, Office for National Statistics, June 2020, https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/wellbeing/articles/coronavirusandanxietygreatbritain/3april2020to10may2020“Divided Together”, Westfield Health, https://www.westfieldhealth.com/divided-together-reportcenter_img No comments yet.
