Security officer in alleged assault at Woodside HS placed on administrative leave

The student’s mother is in the process of filing a police report and could be suing as well.

I was angry . I felt like I was having an out-of-body experience, and I was livid, said Stephanie Smith. Smith has seen multiple videos of her son, Eric, being held down by the officer outside Woodside High School Friday.

He slammed my son on the sidewalk . Eric was telling him to, Get off of me, then he put his arms around him choking him . He is screaming and crying at the same time . I cannot breathe, I cannot breathe.’ Eric Miller, who is in 11th grade, said class had just let out and he was heading for the school bus when the officer approached him. I kept walking and he was like, No, come here, and I m like, I m not trying to miss my bus .

I m trying to get on my bus, and so then he grabbed me, said Miller. Fellow student Jacob Crosby was one of dozens who witnessed the altercation. The officer at the school took him to the ground and put him in a chokehold, and the boy couldn t breathe, said Crosby.

And I started yelling, I couldn t breathe, but he squeezed tighter as I was yelling, said Miller. Crosby s dad doesn t even know Eric, but said what he does know is what he saw on camera isn t right.
Because I know my kids are at that school, and what if that happened to one of them, said John Crosby. Miller, who suffered bruises to his neck and arms, was eventually allowed to go without any explanation from the school . He said he s worried about returning on Monday. He should be there to protect kids, not hurt them, said Miller. He needs to be fired, added his mother. Smith said she is still waiting for an explanation from the school as to what led to all this in the first place.

This needs to be addressed, because my son was assaulted by officers that are employed by Newport News Public Schools, and I m not going to let that slide, said Smith.

Racist shop thief told security guard ‘You just bomb the place’ in shocking tirade of abuse

A racist shop thief shouted You just bomb the place at a security guard when he was caught stealing buffalo burgers. Jeffrey Carr also said He shouldn t be in this country he should go back to his country during the shocking rant inside an Iceland store, in Newcastle1. A court was told that the 55-year-old, who was described by his own solicitor as Hopeless and helpless at the time, launched the tirade of abuse towards the security guard when he was detained after trying to steal the burgers.

But, when police arrived, they charged him not only with the shop theft but also with a racially aggravated public order offence, charges to which he has now pleaded guilty. During a hearing at North Tyneside Magistrates Court2, District Judge Sarah Griffiths said it was astonishing people still used such vile language.

An Iceland store

Reading through the details of the case, the judge added: He s in a shop and seen by a security guard taking burgers . He s challenged about it and initially just swears at him and says f*** you .

However, later when the police arrived, he makes a comment about the security guard and says he shouldn t even be in this country.

He then says He needs to go back to his country . He shouldn t be here, they just bomb the place . The court was told the offences happened on April 24 this year at an Iceland store in Newcastle.

Giving Carr, of Wilfred Street, Byker, an eight-week community order, with an eight-week curfew, as well as ordering him to pay 85 compensation, District Judge Griffiths said: In this day and age, this behaviour is completely unacceptable.

It s astonishing people still use such language, he should be ashamed . It has to stop.

In a statement, the security guard said: I expect an element of dislike towards me because of my job but I don t appreciate racism. Andy O Hanlon, mitigating, said Carr was now extremely remorseful and apologetic for his actions.

The solicitor added: At the time, he was homeless, hopeless and helpless .

He was drinking to heavily and the most important fact was he was not getting his medication.

He s suffered from mental health issues all his adult life.

Tight security in Barcelona ahead of Catalan independence announcement

Security is tight in a tense Barcelona – with just hours to go until Catalonia possibly declares independence from Spain. Police are guarding public buildings and have closed off a park surrounding the regional parliament – amid concerns that an attempt to break away from Madrid could be met with a harsh response from Spanish authorities. Catalan president Carles Puigdemont has not revealed the precise message he will deliver at 6pm local time (5pm UK time), but separatist politicians have said they expect a declaration based on the results of the disputed independence referendum on 1 October. Ahead of the announcement, Barcelona’s mayor said the Catalan referendum is not enough for the region to declare independence from Spain.

Ada Colau said the results of the vote “can’t be a guarantee to proclaim independence but are the opportunity to build dialogue and international mediation”. She appealed to Spain’s prime minister and Catalonia’s political leader to “decrease tension on both sides”, adding that “now is the time to build bridges”. Ms Colau also urged Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy to pull out the extra police that have been drafted in to the northeast region as a “gesture of state responsibility”.

As many in Spain await what would be a major escalation in the constitutional crisis, more firms have said they are pulling out of the region. Highway management company Abertis and telecoms company Cellnex have joined a growing list of companies moving their headquarters elsewhere. Both are part of Spain’s Ibex 35 index of top listed companies. Abertis and Cellnex said they were pulling out for as long as there is uncertainty about the region’s future.

They join a slew of companies that are moving, including property group Inmobiliaria Colonial, Banco Sabadell, CaixaBank and energy firm Gas Natural. Publishing house Grupo Planeta also warned it will move to Madrid if independence is declared. Spain’s deputy prime minister earlier warned of a tough response if Catalonia’s political leader, Carlos Puigdemont, decides to announce a split from Spain. Soraya Saenz de Santamaria told COPE radio that “if they declare independence, there will be decisions to restore the law and democracy”. He added: “I’m calling on the sensible people in the Catalan government.. .

don’t jump off the edge because you’ll take the people with you.” The crisis in the region follows an illegal referendum that was condemned by many because of the heavy-handed approach by police. Around 900 people were reportedly hurt when officers seized ballot boxes, fired rubber bullets and forcibly dragged people out of polling stations. Catalonia’s leaders said 90% of the 43% who turned out voted ‘yes’. However, hundreds of thousands of people have turned out for anti-independence rallies, including in Catalonia’s capital, Barcelona1, since the vote. The region’s referendum law states that a declaration would start a six-month process of divorce talks with Spain and regional elections.

Mr Puigdemont appeared steadfast on Sunday, saying a ‘yes’ vote necessitated an independence declaration.

“We will apply what the law says,” he told TV3. Mr Rajoy has not ruled out the “nuclear option” of removing the Catalan government and calling fresh regional elections. Pedro Sanchez, leader of Spain’s main opposition party, is also backing the government’s response if an independence declaration is made. Mr Sanchez said “a unilateral declaration of independence doesn’t have a place in a state ruled by law”. He told reporters in Barcelona: “The same way that we are offering our hand for a dialogue, we will also support the state’s response if coexistence among Spaniards is broken unilaterally”.
