To Snitch or not to Snitch, Why is that the Question?

January 14, 2020

first_imgIn society today there is an alarming rate of people standing around as crimes are being committed on other people or themselves, and not helping or calling the police. Whether it is a crime of disrespect or assault, criminal mischief, murder or theft, many would rather go home and tell the world about what just happened, rather than the police.Reluctance to talk to police and even reporters when people are hurt, kidnapped or sacrificed has always been a problem, especially in poor communities, with the LNP saying “It is a big challenge because many are losing their lives recklessly and property stolen or damaged because of this silence,”To Snitch or not to SnitchDuring the murder of two unidentified men in Caldwell’s Thumbs Up community last year, there were multiple bruises and cuts on their bodies, suggesting they were mobbed. But when neighbors who lived in the houses where the bodies were found lying were asked what transpired, no one was willing to give a single clue or hint. No one took the stage to ‘talk it,’ or ‘snitch.’Later, the mother of one of the victims came crying her soul out over the death of her son, a very emotional moment that would have made any parent cry. But sympathy seems not to be in the hearts of those who run across alleged rouges or thieves. The mother never sought justice for her murdered child and today walks with a very large chip on her shoulders (doesn’t care about society and what happens to it).The LNP in many situations have stated that ‘witnesses are not coming forward; murders are going unsolved, because they don’t want to tell on their friends.”Meanwhile, a man was recently caught beating the brakes off a teenage girl who appeared to be hearing impaired as well as mentally challenged. After he was done beating her, he began stripping her clothes off in an attempt to place his finger in her genitals. A crowd stood around laughing, teasing the man – who also appeared psychotic – that he should leave the teen. There were no efforts made to call the police, nor did anyone try to physically stop the man from his actions.“Chea! He is very violent and beats up anyone when he is angry. I can’t go there,” said some members of the crowd.Snitching, to keep from telling or giving information to the police or authorities, is not fitting for a society that wants development. Such behavior, if tolerated, can cause a bigger challenge and even bring chaos, war and terrorism to Liberia.“If you see a strange activity that you know is not safe for you and your family, or could lead to the death of someone, call the police and report it. Don’t wait until it happens to you, because the person who you failed to help could be the same witness in a case that affects you. They too will not come forward, and that’s how this thing will keep going until an entire community is affected by mayhem,” stated a police officer, who did not want to be named, at the Zone One Depot Seven headquarters in New Kru Town during the assault of the teen.

TKR takes top spot with win over Warriors

first_imgTrinbago Knight Riders surged to the top of the Hero Caribbean Premier League point standings with a 67-run victory over the Guyana Amazon Warriors on Wednesday evening in Trinidad.Meeting for the first time this season, Warriors decided to have a bowl with their toss victory and were able to restrict a rampaging TKR to 170 – 7. However, they botched the chase and crumbled to 103 all out in the presence of a packed Queen’s Park Oval.The Twin Island Republic celebrated all night as Warriors’ poor shot selection was no match for the disciplined attack of the opposition.It started all wrong for the Warriors, losing Luke Ronchi to another bad lbw decision by the umpire for no score. Chadwick Walton’s (4) woes continued after he presented an irresponsible shot to Khary Pierre and was bowled to put his side under even more pressure.Shimron Hetmyer made 11 before he hit one down the throat of Colin Munro at deep mid-wicket off Ali Khan. GAW were now 21 – 3 and TKR already smelling victory with the crumbling of the top order.Wickets continued falling as Cameron Delport (2), Chris Green (2) and Sohail Tanvir (0) made no impact with the bat while Jason Mohammed (27) fought to keep the inevitable from an early arrival. The Mohammed-resistance lasted only 27-balls; and another Warriors batsman was out, caught. At that time, GAW were 57-7.While Roshon Primus contributed some consolation hitting down the order with an unbeaten 36, Rayad Emrit (2), Romario Shepherd (10) and Imran Tahir (0) were all exposed and eventually dismissed.Ali Khan led with 3 – 22 while Fawad Ahmed, Pierre and the skipper had two wickets each for 20, 21 and 22, respectively. Narine accounted for the other wicket.The Warriors had an all access pass to the Munro show as he continued his magnificent form this season, further cementing himself as the tournament’s highest run getter with 436.He was able to score at 360 degrees to record his fifth 50 of the season, the highest score of the lot and the backbone of the Knight Riders’ innings, contributing more than 50 percent of the total.The Queen’s Park Oval was silenced early on when Amazon Warriors struck first through Tanvir who removed Chris Lynn without scoring on the fifth ball of the night, taking TKR to 1 – 1.However, Guyana was not prepared for the response which came in the form of a 135-run second wicket partnership between Denesh Ramdin and Munro.The pair was completely on top and dominated the opposition’s bowling line up. Ramdin was able to score at a bit over a run-a-ball for his 39 that had four fours and a maximum. Munro (90) on the other hand was the attacker, slapping ten fours and fours sixes from 56 deliveries.Ramdin held out to Imran Tahir on the long on boundary, with the score on 136, off a Chris Green-delivery then Munro toed one from Romario Shepherd and was caught by Green comfortably, running in from the long on boundary.Two balls later, Shepherd gave the Guyanese support contingent more to cheer about with the removal of the dangerous Brendon McCullum (2) who scooped one to a diving Hetmyer at deep cover. TKR were suddenly 140-4 with 3.2 overs to go.TKR were well on track for another score above 180 but were set back when Shepherd got Dwayne Bravo (9) to drag one back on to his stumps. The other Bravo, Darren, was left not out on 12 which included a six and a four while Javon Searles (8) was bowled by Tanvir and Narine was caught at long-on off the innings’ final delivery, also bowled by Tanvir.Tanvir ended with 3-27 while Shepherd had 3 – 29 and Green 1 – 20.The two sides will meet again when Guyana hosts TKR on September 9 at the Providence National Stadium.last_img read more


Lancers, Panthers hoping for good news

first_imgCIF will announce its decision on Sunday around 4 p.m. “I really do believe you can make a legitimate case for everybody,” said Amat coach Richard Wiard, whose team hasn’t practiced since its semifinal loss Tuesday against Long Beach Poly. “Everybody has got a good claim.” Perhaps no one has as good a claim as Amat, which has won the division title the past two seasons and, along with Santa Margarita, hails from the toughest Southern Section division. If you believe Amat is a shoo-in, and Beaumont and Magnolia are likely outsiders, that leaves Diamond Ranch and Santa Margarita to dispute the final spot. “I’m thinking I should be there,” Spirlin said. “My record shows it. I’ve won two sanctioned tournaments and my record is better. “We’re still practicing as normal,” Diamond Ranch coach Vince Spirlin said. “Hopefully, we get the nod, and if we do, we’ll be ready. I’m telling the girls we’re going to keep going as normal. They understand we put ourselves in that predicament.” That predicament is shared by Amat, Beaumont, Magnolia and Santa Margarita. There are two at-large spots open in next week’s Division III state playoffs, with five teams eligible. “Bishop Amat, they’ll go because they go to state every year. What has Santa Margarita done? They beat Troy, but Troy isn’t that strong this year.” If CIF places an emphasis on overall record, Diamond Ranch has the best argument. If CIF considers level of competition, Amat wins in a walk. Not to mention the Lancers have history and tradition on their side. The problem when comparing head-to-head competition is that Amat, Diamond Ranch and Santa Margarita haven’t played each other. But Santa Margarita beat Troy once in three tries, while Amat lost to Troy. Amat blew out Bishop Montgomery, which beat Diamond Ranch by nine in December. Confused yet? “It should be Bishop Amat and us,” Spirlin said. “Bishop Amat’s track record is long and they’ve played a lot of good teams. Santa Margarita played one good team – Troy. Magnolia is a good team, but they don’t have the track record.” Diamond Ranch won the Division III-AA Southern Section title last season and has lost only twice this season. Santa Margarita can boast it was bounced from the playoffs by nationally-ranked Brea-Olinda. Amat can blame its exit on playing Long Beach Poly, ranked No. 2 in the country by USA Today. Diamond Ranch’s loss to Norco in the Division II-A playoffs doesn’t look as sexy, thus being a semifinalist in a higher division might be a strong enough argument for Amat and Santa Margarita to get the nod. Spirlin disagrees. “I lose to Norco by one, on the road,” he said. “My game went into overtime. Their games, they lost by 10. Santa Margarita is 25-5. I’m 27-2 and I beat tough teams.” Actually, Amat lost by 13 to Long Beach Poly and Santa Margarita lost by 20 to Brea-Olinda. One of the biggest factors in Amat’s favor is its quarterfinal win over Lynwood, which is likely the biggest accomplishment on any of the at-large teams’ resumes. “It gave us some credibility,” Wiard said. “I think I read somewhere that they were ranked fourth in the state. We beat a very good team at their place. “I think the fact our schedule was, at least in January and February, a little tougher than some of the other teams helps us. I think it means we could play with just about anybody.” Stay tuned. aram.tolegian@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2233 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Wilshere cautious over World Cup hopes

January 10, 2020

Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


first_imgThe squad Wilshere has rejoined is a far cry from the one he first broke into as a highly promising 18-year-old in 2010.Shorn of talismanic striker Harry Kane through injury, Southgate’s 27-man group is desperately thin on players performing regularly at the highest level.“It’s completely different. I remember the first time I walked into an England squad, I went for dinner the first time and there was (Wayne) Rooney, (Frank) Lampard, (Steven) Gerrard, (Rio) Ferdinand, (John) Terry — big players who I had watched growing up,” Wilshere said at England’s training base.“It’s a different feel now. There’s more young players, there’s more of a group I think and there’s more of a plan towards the future.”Wilshere’s last outing in an England shirt was not one to remember as Roy Hodgson’s side were embarrassed 2-1 by Iceland at Euro 2016 — extending England’s long wait for a first win in the knockout phase of a major tournament, which they have not achieved since 2006.And he stressed that big expectations should not be piled onto the shoulders of a young squad, despite excellent results at youth tournaments that have boosted hopes of a brighter future.England’s under-20 and under-17 sides won their respective World Cups last year.“The World Cup is a massive thing for us and we want to do well. We don’t want to set ourselves any targets but I think going through after the World Cup the group is in a good position,” he added.“If you look over the past years, especially Rio (before World Cup 2014) — we were confident going into that and it didn’t work out. And with this group of players, it wouldn’t be fair.”– Arsenal future in the balance –Things could have been different for Wilshere had he taken manager Wenger up on his offer to leave Arsenal at the beginning of the season.“I wasn’t getting in the Arsenal team and the manager said I could leave if I wanted to,” said the 26-year-old. “I was in the position that I did not know what was going to happen in the coming season.”Wilshere’s future is again up in the air. His contract is set to expire at the end of the season, meaning he could become a free agent while at the World Cup.And he is hoping to have a deal agreed before jetting off to Russia.“I want to go to the World Cup and enjoy it but we have three months till then and a lot can happen. Ideally from my point of view and the club’s point of view, they will probably want it sorted.”In a career blighted by injury, Wilshere has managed to marry a prolonged spell of form and fitness, making 31 appearances already this season.England’s pain could be Wilshere’s gain, as a lack of competition for places in central midfield means he is now well-placed for at the very least a place in Southgate’s squad for the summer.“I have always had the confidence in myself and felt that if I got in there I could put in the performances that would give me the opportunity to be back here with England,” he said.“I have always loved playing for England. It is the top level for any player. I am at an age now where I get it and it means a lot to me.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Jack Wilshere hasn’t played for England since a shock 2-1 defeat to Iceland at Euro 2016. © AFP / PAUL ELLISBURTON-0N-TRENT, United Kingdom, Mar 22 – England midfielder Jack Wilshere has played down World Cup expectations but believes the Russian showpiece could be a stepping stone towards a brighter future for Gareth Southgate’s inexperienced team.The Arsenal player is hoping to win his first cap in nearly two years in warm-up friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy after battling back to recover his place in Arsene Wenger’s team this season.last_img read more


IRISH WATER SAYS IT WILL MEET WITH CHURCHILL RESIDENTS OVER ‘BROWN WATER’

first_imgIrish Water has reassured fed-up residents in the Churchill area that it is working towards fixing their water issues.The bottled water on the right and the tapster on the left as shown in the baby’s bottles.Residents contacted Donegal Daily to say they simply cannot use the water in the area because it is unfit for human consumption.The local water supply, which is run off a Private Water Scheme, has resulted in the water regularly turning brown. Locals say they simply cannot bath children or give them water to drink.Instead hundreds of householders are being forced to spend an average of €1,000 on bottled water.But now Irish Water say there is light at the end of the tunnel for the residents.A spokesman told us that they are now working to take over the local water scheme. “The Churchill Group Water Scheme is a collection of private water schemes.“At the request of the Churchill Group Water Scheme Committee, Irish Water is working through a process with the Committee to enable the take over of the scheme by Irish Water.“Engagement is ongoing with both parties working to have the Scheme taken over as soon as possible,” said a spokesman.IRISH WATER SAYS IT WILL MEET WITH CHURCHILL RESIDENTS OVER ‘BROWN WATER’ was last modified: September 15th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Churchilldonegalgroup schemesIrish Waterlast_img read more


PAEDOPHILE PAIR JAILED FOR SICKENING ATTACKS ON BOY (13)

December 28, 2019

Tagged: , , , , , , , , ,


first_imgA PAEDOPHILE tried to escape from a court house after being jailed for his part in sickening sex abuse attacks on a 13-year-old boy.The man was one of two 21-year-old men jailed at Donegal Circuit Court for offences committed between late 2008 and the summer of 2009.Patricia McLaughlin, prosecuting for the State, told Judge John O’Hagan that the pair, who were 17 at the time, lured their victim to a ‘children’s den’ built in a forest near a housing estate. There they committed acts of sexual assault and defilement.The victim was given cigarettes and the abuse took place as part of games of ‘Truth or Dare’.The area of Co Donegal where the incidents took place cannot be identified to protect the victim. Those behind the attacks cannot be identified either, once again to protect the identity of their victim.Defence lawyers for both men said their clients were highly sexualised from a young age, had been abused themselves by relatives and had low IQs.One of the men was a heavy drinker, consuming 20 cans of beer per day as well as spirits.He had shown no remorse for his actions; whilst the other man had done so.Both however had failed to show up for appointments at a treatment centre which deals with perpetrators of child sex abuse whilst the courts were dealing with the matters, said Judge John O’Hagan.The judge said the two men, although 17 at the time, “knew what they were doing was wrong.”He said probation reports showed that “whichever way you look at it there is a risk of re-offending.”The victim had suffered terribly as a result of the attacks.The judge said it was his duty to tell the court that the two men had been offered treatment by Cosc, a HSE Service in Donegal Town which deals with paedophiles.He read a letter sent to the court from Cosc which stated that one of the two men had been offered an appointment in May 2011 and he had not attended.The Cosc staff member also said that two members of staff had now left the service leaving just her, a part-time employee to deal with the whole of Donegal, Sligo and Leitrim.Responding to defence legal arguments that the men needed to receive treatment to prevent future abuse, Judge O’Hagan said there was nowhere to send them to, and the men had already failed to attend Cosc.The Cosc staff member had said in her letter that there was already “a waiting list of some months.”The judge sentenced each of the men to two years in prison on each of four charges, with the last year suspended. All terms are to run concurrently.Both men must follow the direction of the probation service for two years on release and have their names on the sex offenders register for ten years.One of the men tried to make a run for the door of the court but was restrained by prison staff.The other man and his mother sobbed as he was led away.PAEDOPHILE PAIR JAILED FOR SICKENING ATTACKS ON BOY (13) was last modified: December 10th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegal circuit courtJUdge John O’Haganpaedophileslast_img read more
