Philadelphia community activist Askia Sabur acquitted on all charges

first_imgAskia SaburPhoto: Philly DeclarationPhiladelphia — After less than an hour of deliberation on Feb. 19, a jury acquitted Black community activist, Askia Sabur, on all charges stemming from a Sept. 3, 2010, assault by Philadelphia police.  In front of a courtroom packed with Sabur’s family members and supporters, the jury foreman responded “Not guilty” as each charge of aggravated assault against a police officer, attempting to disarm a law enforcement officer, simple assault, reckless endangerment and resisting arrest was read.The acquittals followed a four-day trial during which police involved in the incident repeatedly lied and gave conflicting testimony.  The defense presented irrefutable evidence that the police were lying with a 2-and-a-half minute cell phone video taken at the scene. The video, showing Sabur being viciously assaulted by police, was widely disseminated shortly after the incident and was picked up by local media, CNN and the BBC.Court testimonyDefense witness Shawn Merritt, Sabur’s cousin, described waiting to pick up food outside a west Philadelphia takeout when Sabur came by on his bicycle.  As the two stood talking, police officers Danyul Williams and Jimmy Leocal pulled over in their car and immediately ordered them to “Get the f—k off our corner.” When Merritt, whose fiancée and three-year-old daughter were in the restaurant, told the police he was just waiting for his food and wouldn’t leave, the officers demanded the men show identification.Sabur supporters.WW photo: Betsey PietteAs Sabur, an unarmed 29-year-old man, tried to reach for ID, Williams handcuffed his wrist.  Sabur repeatedly asked why he was being arrested and pulled away when the officer jerked his other arm behind his back, hurting him.Leocal then grabbed Sabur by the neck and slammed him to the ground. In the scuffle that ensued, Merritt testified that Leocal struck Sabur in the front of his head with a metal baton while he was standing and then repeatedly hit him on the back of his head and body when he was on the ground. The video supports this and an enlarged photo introduced by the defense showed several wounds across the back of Sabur’s head.The defense repeatedly played the video of the beating in court. It also showed Leocal pointing his gun at onlookers and threatening the man taking the film. A woman, arrested for recording the incident, claimed police smashed her phone in violation of police protocol.‘The system is broken’Even though the officers involved were the subjects of multiple civilian complaints and Internal Affairs investigations, this information was ruled inadmissible in court.It took over two years, numerous delays, five different judges and two different prosecutors for the case to finally be heard.  Abdus Sabur, Askia’s father, told Workers World, “These delays show the system is broken.  They were looking to defuse support, but it didn’t work.” Undeterred by the postponements, Sabur’s supporters filled the courtroom every day.Sabur was legally represented by attorneys Larry Krasner and Evan Hughes.  Assistant District Attorney Carolyn DeLaurentis led the prosecution, whose witnesses were all police officers and whose case rested on contradictory police claims that Sabur bit Williams during the scuffle.During their testimony, the police had trouble getting their story straight about their reason for confronting Sabur. At first, Williams said they were looking for a tattooed man who shot up a day care center.  Merritt has a visible tattoo.  Later, Williams said they only stopped to give Sabur a citation for “blocking a highway” with his bike but not to arrest him.In his statement immediately after the incident, Leocal wrote “disorderly conduct” as the reason they confronted Sabur. After the video had received wide public distribution and again in court he claimed they pulled over to “arrest Sabur for obstructing a highway.” Neither officer bothered to explain how a four-foot bike leaning against a wall could block a 12-foot-wide sidewalk.The details of Williams’ charge that Sabur “bit him” also shifted.  In a written report made after the video, Williams said he was bitten several times on his left side, was bleeding and required hospital treatment.  The only photographic evidence, however, of broken skin was of Williams’ right hand.The hospital report, introduced into evidence by Krasner, mentions a “fight bite” on Williams’ hand (which could have resulted from punching Sabur). In court, Williams testified that the bite was on his right side and had not broken the skin.Another prosecution witness, Police Sgt. Edward Hays, repeated this series of lies, first writing in 2010 that the bite was on Williams’ left side but mentioning no blood. In court, Hays testified, “Sabur bit Williams on his right side, right through his [leather] vest” causing bleeding.Alleging “We were fighting for our lives,” read more

Cornell, city partnership brings new life to Ithaca City Cemetery

first_imgITHACA, N.Y. — The Ithaca City Cemetery predates the city itself, originating as a final resting place for a young settler headed west and slowly evolving into 17 acres of landscaped parkland where mourners and meanderers alike could take in the fresh air. Now more than a century after most of its inhabitants were interred, the cemetery will be rejuvenated.Cornell University announced Tuesday that it will match the City of Ithaca’s $75,000 contribution to cemetery preservation and maintenance. The $150,000 investment follows years of advocacy by Historic Ithaca and the Friends of Ithaca City Cemetery volunteers and will go toward protecting the cemetery’s most vulnerable vaults and monuments.“This is a gorgeous asset nestled right between Cornell University and Downtown Ithaca,” Mayor Svante Myrick said as the restoration project was announced Tuesday. He credited “the energy, passion and motivation of the Friends of Ithaca City Cemetery” with spurring the city to action, and thanked Cornell for joining the effort.Joel Malina announces Cornell’s support for the cemetery. (Devon Magliozzi/Ithaca Voice) Joel Malina announces Cornell’s support for the cemetery. (Devon Magliozzi/Ithaca Voice)Situated between University Avenue to the west and Stewart Avenue to the east, the cemetery showcases shifts in aesthetics and politics since the late 18th century. The plot that initially served as the village burying ground was expanded into “Mount Repose” in the 1840s, reflecting both the rural cemetery movement’s push for bucolic burials and the village’s growing population. In the 1870s the parcel’s rambling gardens gave way to manicured lawns, reflecting a nationwide trend, and the cemetery was renamed Silvan Hills as prominent families constructed vaults and associations bought up group plots. It wasn’t until 1888, when all but one of the 12 vaults were complete and most of the plots were purchased, that the City of Ithaca was incorporated and took ownership of the cemetery.Daniel Jackson’s headstone. (Devon Magliozzi/Ithaca Voice) Daniel Jackson’s headstone. (Devon Magliozzi/Ithaca Voice)The cemetery offers a material record of the city and nation’s tumultuous history, according to Christine O’Malley, Historic Ithaca preservation services manager. The markers of Revolutionary War veterans are still maintained by the Sons of the Revolution and local Union Soldiers are memorialized with the Grand Army of the Republic Monument. An unassuming, grassy field serves as the “potter’s field,” where the indigent were laid to rest.After Tuesday’s ceremony, O’Malley led a group over to a notable headstone on the cemetery’s southern edge. Daniel Jackson, 1814-1889, “Born a Slave he followed the North Star to Freedom,” the marker reads.“You think it’s just a gravestone, but really it’s a document. An archival document,” O’Malley said. Tagged: friends of ithaca city cemetery, historic Ithaca, ithaca city cemetery, joel malina, Mayor Svante Myrick Throughout the cemetery, pieces of Ithaca’s history are exposed to the elements and impacts of passersby. Some older headstones, etched before more durable granite and the tools to carve it were available, have succumbed to natural erosion. Others have been bumped and battered by tree limbs and roots. Some have been damaged by vandalism, which O’Malley said is nothing new. In Cornell’s earliest years rowdy students routinely cut through what they called “the boneyard” on their way to the flats.The vaults, too, are worse for the wear. Built into the hillside, they have borne the weight of earth and snow and rain while their mortar deteriorated and groundhogs burrowed below. About four years ago, the Esty family vault became the first to collapse.Myrick acknowledged that over his first two terms and for decades past, “the city government was not doing everything it should for the city cemetery.”Based on the results of a study commissioned by the city about a year and a half ago, the infusion of funds from the city and university will go toward shoring up vaults in addition to helping with maintenance of the burial plots spread read more

Finally, an easy one: US rolls by Japan 98-45 at World Cup, Mitchell scores 10

first_img Tags: Basketball/FIBA World Cup/Team USA September 5, 2019 /Sports News – Local Finally, an easy one: US rolls by Japan 98-45 at World Cup, Mitchell scores 10 Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailSHANGHAI (AP) — Jaylen Brown scored 20 points, Kemba Walker added 15 and the U.S. World Cup team finally got to enjoy an easy night, rolling past Japan 98-45 Thursday in the Group E finale.Harrison Barnes scored 14 points while Joe Harris and Donovan Mitchell each had 10 for the Americans (3-0), who are bidding for an unprecedented third consecutive World Cup title.And now, the NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo awaits the Americans as the stakes get higher.The U.S. is headed to a pair of second-round games in Shenzhen, China — with the first one Saturday against Antetokounmpo and Greece. The Greeks claimed the 16th and final second-round berth with a win Thursday night against New Zealand.Yudai Baba scored 18 for Japan (0-3), which will play in classification games the rest of the way. Rui Hachimura, Japan’s best player and the No. 9 draft pick this year by the Washington Wizards, was held to four points on 2 for 8 shooting.A U.S. program that is accustomed to blowout wins, particularly when it has NBA players, hadn’t enjoyed one yet in six games against international competition this summer. The biggest victory margin before Thursday was 21 in the World Cup opener against the Czech Republic, and the U.S. came into the group finale with a plus-59 scoring differential in four exhibitions and two World Cup games.This one, two days after the Americans needed late-game heroics to beat Turkey 93-92 in overtime, was drama-free.It was 13-0 before Japan scored, 23-9 after a quarter, 56-23 at halftime and 73-25 midway through the third quarter when Hachimura got loose for a dunk and his first points of the night. Somehow, matters could have been even worse for Japan: The U.S. missed seven of eight shots during one first-quarter stretch and finished shooting 48% for the game.TIP-INSJapan: The Japanese missed their first six shots, and went 5:48 without a field goal until center Nick Fazekas rattled in a short jumper. … Japan doesn’t play the U.S. often, and when the matchup happens it’s one-sided. The Americans are 3-0 against Japan in the Olympics, winning by a combined 183 points (98-40 in 1956, 125-66 in 1960 and 99-33 in 1972). The teams hadn’t previously met in World Cup play.U.S.: The Americans held a 58-33 rebounding edge. … Harris replaced Jayson Tatum in the starting lineup. Tatum is out with a sprained left ankle and isn’t scheduled to be reevaluated again until Monday. … Marcus Smart (left quad strain) also missed the game, so the U.S. was down to 10 healthy players and two of its four Boston Celtics. … The Americans were flying to Shenzhen after the game.3 FOR 3This tournament marks the 36th different Olympics, World Cup or world championships appearance for USA Basketball. The Americans have now started 3-0 in those events 34 times, going 106-2 overall in their opening three matchups of those competitions.POP ON RUIHachimura worked out for Gregg Popovich and the San Antonio Spurs before the draft, and left a positive impression on the U.S. and Spurs coach. “He knows what he can do, puts himself in position to be successful and score, plays D, rebounds, runs the floor,” Popovich said. “He’s got an all-around game. His confidence is growing and he’ll be a fine player, obviously, and have a very long career.”UP NEXTJapan: Faces New Zealand in a classification-round game Saturday at Dongguan, China.U.S.: Faces Greece in a second-round game Saturday at Shenzhen, China.
