Should Markeith Loyd face the Death Penalty?

first_img Dat Poe The Anatomy of Fear For nine days in January, Markeith Loyd put Central Florida through hell. According to police reports, on January 9th, he shot and killed an Orlando police officer Debra Clayton. He then eluded law enforcement until January 17th when he was finally captured.Last week State Attorney Aramis Ayala shocked Central Florida with her decision not to seek the death penalty for Loyd, and then doubled down in stating she would not seek the death penalty in any case she prosecutes in Orange or Osceola counties.Ayala explained her reasoning, “Number one—the death penalty has no public safety benefit. Number two—the death penalty does not increase safety for law enforcement officers. Number three—the death penalty generally is not a deterrent.”Orlando Police Chief John Mina said he was “extremely upset.” He said Loyd should face the death penalty if convicted of killing Clayton and his pregnant ex-girlfriend, Sade Dixon.Loyd faces two first-degree murder counts and other charges in the deaths of Sade and Clayton.“The heinous crimes that he committed in our community are the very reason that we have the death penalty as an option under the law,” Mina’s statement said.Was Ayala’s decision correct? Do the crimes Loyd is accused of rise to the level of a capital offense?A reader poll:[poll id=”27″] Reply Mama Mia you have had your eyes blinded by hatred. It pours out of every word you have written.Mourn with those who lost loved ones to the heinous unthinkable actions of Markeith. The people who have rallied in a maddening mob reminiscent of lynching mobs to crucify, murder, or kill Markeith; I find disgusting and disturbing. Our nation has been steeped in violence and our supposed greatness was built on that violence, even writing this and thinking about it disturbs me deeply. Do I believe Markeiths actions are disgusting!Of course!Four people have lost their lives, but to then kill further to quench the thirst of people like you that believe that further killing is the answer to reap justice is appalling. No form of justice will bring back those whose lives have been lost. Taking his absolutely won’t. It will not soothe the heartbreak or fill the well of anger that cry’s out to our most primal instinct to kill him in the name of justice. Ayala’s actions are within her right as the elected state prosecutor. She is within her right to put together an administration under her leadership that focuses more on rehabilitation than incarceration or in this particular case, execution. Why do we murder people under the name of the death penalty? Is it to deter further killing? Well that does not work! Look around and see that it has not worked. I write poignantly and passionately and if I have offended I hope it is a righteous offense that will drive you and others that think like you, along with us all, to think more deeply about how socially exceptable it has become for us to cheer for the death penalty.Power To The People – #4 Please enter your comment! 3 COMMENTS March 20, 2017 at 12:23 pm Our prosecutor who refuses to seek the death penalty in any case here in her jurisdiction, now has filed a motion to stay on as our prosecutor, and says the governor doesn’t have the authority to remove her from office. That was not what I heard! I heard the Senate can remove her per the governor! We already have a president who apparently does as he pleases, and now we have a local prosecutor who apparently just does as she pleases, too. This is getting ridiculous!!!

Freedom of information threatened by website blacklisting and recriminalization of defamation

first_img Receive email alerts July 13, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Freedom of information threatened by website blacklisting and recriminalization of defamation Help by sharing this information RussiaEurope – Central Asia RSF_en News —-Драконовские меры нового закона по отношению к Интернету и уголовное наказание за клевету: шквальный огонь по свободе информацииВ среду нижняя палата российского Парламента – Государственная Дума – большинством голосов в третьем чтении приняла новый закон, позволяющий создавать «черный список» Интернет-порталов. Это вызвало опасения о потенциальной создания цензуре и фильтрации информации в Сети в будущем. Проект закона должен быть принят верхней палатой российского парламента, Советом Федерации, далее для вступления в силу его ратифицирует президент РФ Владимир Путин.Основные поправки «информационного закона» нацелены на защиту пользователей Интернета, в частности, несовершеннолетних, от контента, содержащего «вредную» информацию. В «черный список» попадут сайты, «содержащие порнографию, экстремистские идеи, подстрекающие к суициду или употреблению наркотиков». Остальные сайты будут подвергаться юридической проверке. «Репортеры без границ» уверены, «что данный проект закона вызывает много сомнений из-за невнятных формулировок, пассивного отношения российских властей и масштаба контроля информации, который просто пугает. Мы очень надеемся, что внедрение данного «черного списка» сайтов не откроет дорогу системной фильтрации в исполинских объемах, которая спровоцирует волну цензуры против российской оппозиции и критических умозаключений».Российская страница международного портала Wikipedia (www.ru.wikipedia.org) закрылась 10 июля в знак протеста и выражения своего несогласия с проектом закона. «Представьте себе мир без свободного знания!». Данная акция протеста против нового закона, который может привести «к созданию усиленной цензуры информации в Интернете», затронула также крупнейший поисковик Яндекс: в среду 11 июля сайт решил изменить свой традиционный слоган «Найдется все», убрав слово «все» и утверждая, что стоит бояться нецелесообразного использования закона.Статья 4 закона не уточняет критерии, согласно которым тот или иной сайт будет внесен в «черный список», и расплывчато определяет значение слова «неблагоприятный». Таким образом, стоит бояться блокировки порталов, тем более если владелец сайта не успеет изъять «плохое» содержимое в течение 48-ми часов. В этом случае сайт будет заблокирован. В итоге информация, на которую не распространяется действие закона, также будет недоступна. Неопределенность царит и в том органе государственной власти, который был создан для определения сайтов для «черного списка». Любое универсальное решение начала процесса фильтрации должно быть отклонено. Блокировка Интернет-сайтов должна происходить в четко очерченных рамках, по принципу прозрачности и только по решению суда. Специальный уполномоченный ООН по продвижению и защите права на свободу самовыражения и свободу мысли Франк Ля Рю отмечает в своем отчете от мая 2011 года, что необходимо ввести «строгие, но дееспособные ограничения для распространения информации в Интернете, за исключением особых и исключительных обстоятельств, в соответствии с международными стандартами».Господин Ля Рю также отмечает, что «хранение данных пользователей, ответственных за создание и распространение нежелательной информации, является серьезным препятствием на пути к осуществлению права на свободу мысли и самовыражения, так как это приводит к чрезмерной частной цензуре, в большинстве случаев без соблюдения принципов прозрачности и соответствия закону».Представитель Организации по безопасности и сотрудничеству в Европе (ОБСЕ) Дуня Мятович, ответственная за свободу СМИ, пропросила власти отложить принятие проекта закона и представить его на публичные дебаты с участием экспертов. Госпожа Мятович также потребовала пересмотреть наказание за клевету в России, «которое идет в разрез с общепринятыми нормами в регионе ОБСЕ».В результате этим же вечером парламентарии приняли в первом чтении поправки, предложение партией власти «Единой Россией» и предусматривающие новые наказания за клевету (см. http://www.duma.gov.ru/news/273/180195/). Однако наказания за преступления для прессы были предложены Государственной Думой еще в ноябре 2011 года. Согласно тексту нового закона (проект закона № 106999-6), который будет еще обсуждаться во втором и третьем чтениях, клевета теперь подлежит наказанию до 5 лет лишения свободы или штрафом в 500 000 рублей (12 500 евро). Международная правозащитная организация Репортеры без границ призывает подписать петицию со стороны коллектива независимых российских журналистов, требующую отменить принятие данного проекта закона (принять участие в подписании петиции возможно здесь). Эти два законопроекта появились как когда Кремль стремится прибегать к помощи Государственной Думы, где доминирует партия власти, чтобы протолкнуть законы, которые могут быть использованы против российской оппозиции.«Репортеры без границ» заявляют: «Мы настоятельно требуем отклонить во втором чтении этот драконовский законопроект. В то время как весь мир прогрессивно уменьшает наказание за клевету, подобный шаг назад в России является как нельзя символичным. Принятый вместе с серией сайтов для «черного списка», созданием астрономических штрафов за незаконные демонстрации и жестоких рамок для Некоммерческих Организаций, получающих финансирование из-за рубежа, данный текст законопроекта усиливает впечатление нового витка репрессий российских властей».Россия является страной «под наблюдением» согласно последнему отчету «Враги Интернета», опубликованном в марте 2012 года «Репортерами без границ». Государство находится на 142-ом месте из 179 стран в последней версии Индекса свободы прессы, созданной также Репортерами без границ. Tекcт по-русски в PDF и нижеThe lower house of the Russian parliament, the Duma, yesterday approved a bill on third reading that will allow the authorities to compile a website blacklist, fuelling concern about Internet filtering and censorship. The bill will have to be passed by the upper house and ratified by President Vladimir Putin before it takes effect.The bill (Draft Law No. 89417-6), which amends the Law on Information, is intended to protect children from content regarded as particularly “harmful.” Websites “containing pornography or extremist ideas, or promoting suicide or use of drugs” could be placed directly on the blacklist without referring to a court. In other cases, a court’s approval would have to be obtained first.According to Global Voices, once a website appeared on the list, the site’s hosting-provider would have 24 hours to notify the site-owner, who must then delete the offending data. If the owner fails to act, the hosting-provider is required to shut down or delete the site itself. In the event that the hosting-provider fails or refuses to act, it joins the registry and then web-providers must cut off access to that entire hosting-provider. Anyone included on the blacklist then has three months to appeal the decision in court.The bill imposes a “collective punishment” on Internet users since it could render law-abiding websites and legitimate websites inaccessible.“We are alarmed by this bill’s ambiguities as the Russian’s government record on news and information control makes us fear the worst,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We suspect that the implementation of this blacklist will open the way to abusive filtering and blocking of online content, with the aim of censoring the Russian opposition and government critics.”Wikipedia’s Russian-language site (ru.wikipedia.org) suspended operations on 10 July in protest. Its home page showed a bar across Wikipedia logo and the words: “Imagine a world without free knowledge.” This protest against a bill that could lead to “extrajudicial Internet censorship” was taken up by the Yandex search engine, which placed a bar across the word “Everything” in its slogan “Everything will be found.”The bill is vague about the specially created federal body that would select the targeted sites. Point 4 of article 5 of the bill also fails to give a precise definition of “harmful” content or sufficiently precise reasons for adding a site to the blacklist. Over-blocking is likely. Any generalized filtering system must be opposed. In a May 2011 report, United Nations special rapporteur for freedom of opinion and expression Frank La Rue said the flow of information via the Internet should be restricted only “in few, exceptional, and limited circumstances prescribed by international human rights law.”La Rue’s report added that: “Holding intermediaries liable for the content disseminated or created by their users severely undermines the enjoyment of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, because it leads to self-protective and over-broad private censorship, often without transparency and the due process of the law.”The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s media freedom representative, Dunja Mijatovic, reacted to the vote by urging the authorities to “suspend the bill and put it out for public discussion with the participation of experts on the issue.” She has also criticized the recriminalization of defamation in Russia, which, she said, “runs against the overall trend in the OSCE region to decriminalize speech offences.” This was in response to the Duma’s passage of a separate bill on first reading yesterday evening that would reverse last November’s decriminalization of media offences by the Duma. Proposed by the ruling United Russia party, Draft Law No. 106999-6, which still has to be approved on second and third reading, would again make defamation punishable by sentences of up to five years in prison or a fine of 500,000 roubles (12,500 euros). A coalition of independent Russian journalists has launched an online petition for the withdrawal of this bill. It is available here in Russian. Reporters Without Borders urges Russian speakers to sign it.These two bills have come at a time when the Kremlin seems to be turning increasingly to the Duma, which is dominated by the ruling party, to give it the tools to crackdown on various kinds of opposition.“We urge the Duma’s members to reject this draconian bill on second reading,” Reporters Without Borders said. “With the entire world gradually decriminalizing defamation, it would send a terrible signal if Russia moved in the opposite direction. Combined with website blacklists, sky-high fines for illegal demonstrations, and grotesque regulations for NGOs that get foreign funding, this new bill’s sudden passage suggests a headlong rush towards much more repression.”Russia is one of the countries that have been placed “under surveillance” in the latest Reporters Without Borders report on “Enemies of the Internet,” issued last March. It is ranked 142nd out of 179 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Follow the Duma debates (live)Watch a video showing journalists’ demonstration in front of the Duma today (Source : Novaya Gazeta) June 2, 2021 Find out more to go further May 21, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Russia Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption News RussiaEurope – Central Asia Organisation News News May 5, 2021 Find out more Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown last_img read more

FRCs offer vital family lifeline

first_imgFacebook NewsLocal NewsFRCs offer vital family lifelineBy admin – August 19, 2010 503 Print Advertisement Twitter Family Resource Centres in Limerick are increasingly acting as a lifeline for people who have lost their jobs because of the recession.  That’s according to the Family Resource Centre National Forum and the Family Support Agency, which has launched a report detailing the work of Family Resource Centres (FRCs) throughout Ireland over the course of 2009. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up There are 107 FRCs in Ireland, four of which are in Limerick – Croom, Hospital, Southill and St Munchin’s.   The report shows that 581 people completed training courses – directly related to employment – in Limerick FRCs last year.  A further 398 people completed educational courses in the centres, while 8,786 people availed of information on a range of topics, including social welfare rights and entitlements, housing and personal debt.  According to Packie Kelly, chairperson of the Family Resource Centre National Forum, the support network for Ireland’s FRCs serve as a lifeline for those who find themselves suddenly out of work. In addition to providing practical supports – like education and training opportunities, information and advice- they also provide emotional and personal support.   “In Limerick, for example, 616 people availed of direct one-to-one support – what we call ‘cup-of-tea’ support – in FRCs last year, while a further 244 people received in-house counselling sessions. “People who are feeling worried or stressed because of the recession – or for any other reason – can come to their local FRC for a cup of tea and a chat with one of our staff members or volunteers.  Just sharing their worries with somebody else and having somebody listen to them in a respectful and confidential space can go a long way towards lightening their load,” said Mr Kelly, who also confirmed that 77 were employed by Limerick’s four Family Resource Centres last year, of which 14 were funded by the Family Support Agency. In addition, 129 people served as volunteers with the centres, either on a day-to-day basis or as members of the Boards of Management.   “One thing we have noticed is that providing practical resources like photocopying and computer services has a knock-on effect of attracting people to FRCs that we have traditionally found difficult to reach.  “What we have seen now is that – if people come to an FRC to get information on job opportunities or unemployment supports – they are more likely to engage then with other activities and return to the Centre for future events. “Another positive trend we have noticed in the past year is a growing level of voluntary activity.  FRCs have always depended to a very large extent on the contribution of volunteers and we were delighted to see even more people getting involved in this manner during 2009”.  The report launched last week is available to download from www.fsa.ie.  Further information about Family Resource Centres in Limerick is available at www.familyresource.ie.center_img Email Linkedin WhatsApp Previous articleFour remain in hunt for hurling crownNext articleParking, not retail parks, blamed for city decline adminlast_img read more
