Gang members will kill each other but they will die knowing they did not rat each other out. There is a war raging on our streets.

Mentirosos y criminales — pandilla de siete estadounidenses ataca Venezuela

first_imgA principios de la década de 1960, un grupo de altos funcionarios de la administración John Kennedy, conocidos como los “genios” por su presunto desempeño en la universidad, como oficiales industriales o como funcionarios de EUA, intensificaron la guerra de agresión de Washington contra Vietnam.El reportero del New York Times David Halberstam en su libro de 1972, “El mejor y el más brillante”, un título que pretendía ser irónico, describió cómo los genios sobreestimaron la capacidad de los EUA al tiempo que subestimaron a los vietnamitas y su liderazgo.Oil tanks of the national-owned Petróleos de Venezuela, S.A. emblazoned with the words, “Homeland, socialism or death.”Ahora, casi 60 años después, otro grupo de altos funcionarios de EUA está liderando el cargo de una nueva cruzada reaccionaria. Nadie los llamaría los mejores o los más brillantes, incluso irónicamente.Estos siete funcionarios están librando la agresión más abiertamente de lo habitual. Han declarado públicamente su objetivo: conquistar a Venezuela y aprovecharse de sus recursos, especialmente sus reservas de petróleo y oro, y también restablecer la dominación completa de EUA sobre el hemisferio occidental mediante el derrocamiento de los gobiernos de Cuba y Nicaragua.Lejos de ser genios, son personas cuya principal y, a menudo, única cualificación es su disposición a decir las mentiras más extravagantes y cometer los crímenes más atroces para lograr sus objetivos reaccionarios y anti pueblo. Son los alimentadores de fondo en la cloaca de funcionarios imperialistas.Estos criminales incluyen:El asesor de seguridad nacional John Bolton, quien constantemente agita la guerra contra Irán, amenaza con la aniquilación de la República Popular Democrática de Corea y es un perpetuo belicista.Elliott Abrams, el enviado especial que supervisa la política de Venezuela, a quien tuvieron que arrastrar desde la trinchera de Mariana. El record de Abrams data de la década de 1980, cuando armó a los “contras” contra Nicaragua y puso al genocida régimen de Ríos Montt en el poder en Guatemala. Abrams incluso fue condenado por mentir ante el Congreso de los EUA, pero fue indultado por el presidente George H.W. Bush.El senador Marco Rubio, de Florida, cuya historia y creencias personales coinciden con la conveniencia política de ponerlo del lado de los exiliados cubanos, nicaragüenses y venezolanos. Estos antiguos oligarcas, capitalistas y sus seguidores ahora habitan en el estado de Rubio.Mike Pence, el vicepresidente evangélico, anti-mujer, anti-LGBTQ, que telefoneó a Juan Guaidó para que anunciara al día siguiente, 23 de enero, que era el “presidente interino” de Venezuela.El secretario de estado Mike Pompeo, ex jefe de la CIA, y el secretario de Hacienda, Steven Mnuchin, también anunciaron su intención de movilizar a todos los títeres de América Latina y a los socios menores imperialistas en Europa mientras intentan bloquear a Venezuela y robar sus propiedades.El propio Trump hace que su odio hacia todos los que se encuentran al sur de la frontera de los EUA (excepto sus lacayos) sea enfático cada vez que tuitea. Uno se pregunta si sus “asesores” lo han convencido de que será bienvenido en Caracas para arrojar toallas de papel a las multitudes, como lo hizo en Puerto Rico luego de ser devastado por los huracanes.No menos peligrosoCualquier venezolana/o u otra/o latinoamericano con conciencia política reconocerá fácilmente a esta pandilla estadounidense como enemigos de su pueblo. Esta banda de siete puede ser menos hábil para llevar a cabo una intervención, que al final puede ser derrotada. La incompetencia de esta pandilla y su congénita subestimación de las masas, sin embargo, no significa automáticamente menos daño al pueblo de Venezuela bolivariana o a toda América.Los líderes del Partido Demócrata aquí, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, etc., que conocen muy bien el sórdido historial político de la pandilla Trump descrito anteriormente, sin embargo apoyan la intervención de los EUA contra Venezuela. (Ver tinyurl.com/yx9xr2o3)Razón de más para aquellas/os dentro de los EUA que queremos defender a Venezuela de estos criminales para reconocer la desconfianza masiva de la administración Trump y movilizarnos contra la intervención de los EUA.Manifestémonos el fin de semana del 23 de febrero en nuestras ciudades. ¡Vaya a No War on Venezuela! (NoWarOnVenezuela.org) para ver las acciones. Movilícese a una manifestación nacional en Washington, DC, el 16 de marzo y otra el 30 de marzo. Y prepárese para discutir, luchar y ganar para detener una nueva calamidad.El presidente venezolano, Nicolás Maduro, el verdadero presidente, advirtió de un conflicto “peor que Vietnam” si Estados Unidos invade.

A Single Bench of Justice N. Anand Venkatesh minced no words in criticizing the alleged incident and also expressed displeasure at the manner in which the Special DGP allegedly used his contacts and power to prevent the victim officer from even filing a complaint against him. The Judge was concerned that if an officer holding a high rank in Indian Police Services can be harassed and be forced to not file a complaint, what must be the state of ordinary women who are victims of such acts. The Single Bench said, “The victim officer in this case is a high-ranked police officer of the State Police. It took so much of struggle, for a police officer of that rank, even to give a complaint to the DGP, Chennai. This Court shudders to think as to what would have happened if the victim was an officer belonging to a lower cadre as that of a Sub-Inspector or Constable of Police. Probably, it would have become impossible for such an officer to have even given a complaint in this case. If that is the position in which lady officers are placed, it is hard to think as to what will happen if such a sexual harassment had taken place on an ordinary lady with no background.” Background The victim officer, belonging to the IPS cadre gave a complaint to the Director General of Police, Chennai, alleging that she was sexually harassed by the Special DGP in his official car while they were on their way to Ulundurpet District in connection to a bandobast duty on February 21, 2021. She alleged that she somehow escaped from the scene and was driving her official car towards Chennai with the purpose of filing a complaint when she started getting phone calls from the Special DGP and many other police officers. As she decided not to attend those calls, she was intercepted at Paranur toll gate by a large contingent of police headed by the Superintendent of Police, Chengalpet District. As per the complaint, a striking force vehicle was stationed right in front of her car and two named police officers in the rank of Inspector and Sub-Inspector of Police, respectively got down from the striking force vehicle, came near her car and took away the car keys. Thereafter, the victim was pressurised and forced to talk with the Special DGP who is said to have requested her not to proceed further with the complaint. However, when the victim did not budge, she was allowed to leave, subsequent to which she submitted a complaint to the DGP, Chennai. Thereafter, a FIR was registered by CBCID against the Special DGP and Superintendent of Police, Chengalpet, for offences under Sections 354A(2), 341, 506(1) of IPC and Section 4 of Tamil Nadu Prohibition of Harassment of Woman Act, 1998. A Committee has also been constituted to enquire into the sexual harassment complaint given by the victim officer. Suo Moto Cognizance Taking suo moto cognizance of this shocking and monstrous incident, the Single Judge expressed serious displeasure that first, a woman was subjected to such harassment, and thereafter, the alleged perpetrator and his subordinates even had the audacity to stop her from filing a complaint. The Single Judge said, “The case reached its crescendo when the lady officer was intercepted by a posse of policemen who had the audacity to stop the car and take away the car keys. It must be borne in mind that the officers who did it are named and they are in the ranks of Sub-Inspector and Inspector of Police, respectively and the officer who was sitting inside the car was a Superintendent of Police. This was exactly the incident which caught the attention of this Court. If IPS Cadre lady officers are going to face situations such as this, this Court thought that it is high time to take cognizance of the same to ensure that these instances do not happen in the future.” Court pulls up Police officers for intercepting an officer senior to them The Court noted that the victim officer was stopped by officers who are junior to her in rank and position, certainly depicting that the latter did not see the women as someone in power but as mere chattel. It remarked, “There is a faulty gene in men which sometimes make them think that a woman is subordinate to them and that at times she can even be treated like a chattel. History, time and again shows that it is after a very long struggle, and only in the last 25 years that women have somehow managed to get to top levels at workplaces including public service. That by itself, does not place them at a secure position since they are not seen in their stature as an officer or professional but continue to be seen merely with patriarchal eyes.” Court bashes Special DGP for abusing his seniority The Judge then proceeded to criticize the acts of Special DGP in the following words: “If an officer, due to the power he veils, thinks that he can get over with his power and connections, from any act, this Court is not going to be a mute spectator and this Court will step in and ensure that the rule of law is preserved Persons by virtue of the position they hold should not get the impression that they can do anything and finally escape from the situation with their power The more the power that is vested in a person by virtue of the position that he is holding, the more stringent must be the punishment if he indulges in sexual harassment. Whosoever may be the person involved and whatever position he holds should never come in the way of the law taking its own course, more particularly when it comes to cases of sexual harassment.” Court decides to monitor investigation The Court was informed that a FIR has been lodged in the matter and a Committee has been constituted to investigate the alleged incident. However, the Bench was of the opinion that in the facts of the case, it may not be prudent to trust the investigation carried out by an institution, to which the accused belongs. It observed, “It is true that an FIR has now been registered by the CBCID and it is brought to the notice of this Court that the case is going to be investigated by an officer not less than the rank of the Superintendent of Police. The mere registration of an FIR by itself does not take away the sordid state of affairs that is prevailing insofar as sexual harassment in workplaces are concerned. The victim was maneuvered and manhandled by a posse of police officers to somehow prevent her from lodging the complaint. The accused person in this case is a high-ranking police official of the very same State Police Force which is stated to be investigating this case also. The propensity of the accused person to mobilise the State Police Force to thwart the course of justice is amply demonstrated by the incident that took place at Paranur toll gate.” In this backdrop, the Court was of the opinion that this is an extraordinary case where it is required to step into monitor the investigation, so as to ensure that it progresses on the right lines, and to retain public confidence in the investigation of the alleged crime by ringfencing the interference of the high and mighty in the corridors of power. It said, “this Court is required to step into monitor the investigation thereby, ensuring that the fundamental rights of the victim to a free and fair investigation is not reduced to an empty ritual. The role of the Constitutional Court in exercise of its jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution to zealously guard the fundamental rights guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution is reinforced by a constitutional duty to act as a sentinel on the qui vive.”Further, considering the sensitivity of the issue and the ensuing elections that are going to take place in the State, the Court observed that there is a high possibility of politicising this issue. To prevent the same, it has issued the following directions: In order to ensure that there is a fair investigation in this case, there shall be a restraint to all political parties from politicising and/or publicising this case and no statements must be given by such parties in the media, touching upon the merits of this case; The name of the victim officer, the accused person and the witnesses shall not be used or exchanged through any media, pending investigation in this case; Any violation of the directions issued by this Court will be viewed very seriously and this Court may be forced to initiate contempt proceedings.

Los Angeles deputy shot in head dies from injuries, sheriff says

first_imgLASD(LOS ANGELES) — A Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy who was shot in the head at a fast food restaurant has died from his injuries, the department’s sheriff said Wednesday night.Deputy Joseph Gilbert Solano, a 13-year veteran, was off-duty at a Jack in the Box in Alhambra when he was shot about 5:45 p.m. on Monday, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said.The attack was caught on surveillance video.Solano, 50, was “in grave condition on life support” Tuesday night, the sheriff said.In a statement, Villanueva described Solano as a huge USC football fan and a “kind-hearted, generous person who is always willing to help others before himself.”Rhett Nelson, a 30-year-old from Utah, was arrested on Tuesday as a suspect in the shooting, the sheriff said.Now, authorities are releasing Nelson’s photo as they look into if he may have been involved in other crimes in California, Villanueva said Wednesday.Nelson may be responsible for the murder of a 30-year-old man in Los Angeles that occurred about one hour before Solano was shot, said Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore.On Tuesday morning, before Nelson was taken into custody, he went to a church in Long Beach where he called his father and allegedly “referenced that he killed two,” the sheriff said.A revolver matching the gun used in the attack on Solano was found in Nelson’s car, authorities said. Also found in Nelson’s car were clothes matching what the suspected gunman was seen on video wearing at the Jack in the Box, authorities said.It does not appear Nelson knew Solano, authorities said, adding that the off-duty deputy was not wearing anything to identify himself as an officer.Nelson arrived in Southern California from Utah the first week of June, authorities said. He had been a missing person in Utah, the sheriff said.Nelson is being held on $2 million bail, ABC Los Angeles station KABC-TV reported. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney. He is due to appear in court on Thursday.Anyone with information involving Nelson is asked to call Homicide Investigators at 323-890-5500.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
