Woman placed to sleep naked in Police lockups

first_imgA Berbice, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) woman is alleging that the Police in the region has abused their power by placing her naked in the lock ups while her teenage daughter is also accusing police officers of assaulting her and placing her in the lock ups with adults.Alicia Harry, 35, told this publication that she was arrested on Monday and placed in a cell at the Rose Hall Town Police Outpost without any clothing.The mother of four told this publication that on Monday Police went to arrest her, alleging that she threw at bottle at a Guyana Police Force vehicle on Saturday evening damaging the windscreen. She said that she told officers that she has four daughters ages four, 11, 14 and 16 and if they detained her they will be left on theirAlicia Harryown at her Lot 44 Williamsburg, Rose Hall Town home. The woman is claiming that the officers said that they had to conduct a search for drugs at the house. She said that she resisted the search and the officers began to assault her and two of her teenage daughters. In the end, herself, one of her daughters, along with her aunt and two cousins were arrested. She claimed that the two officers went to the upper flat saying that they did not need a warrant to search the house.Neighbours told this publication that during the commotion a gunshot was fired, and they heard screaming.One neighbour Wanita Bhagwandin explained that she heard a police officer telling the teenagers that he was going to shoot them on their feet if they did not walk.“They start to cuss dem girls about they mother…they behave real nasty and bad. They had a New Amsterdam vehicle; the number for the station was on the door,” the neighbor explained.Meanwhile, Harry said because of what happened at the house, she felt frustrated and she told the Police that she felt like taking her own life. According to the woman, her statement caused the Police to ask her to take off all her clothes and then she was placed in the lock ups naked.Attorney-at-Law, Chandra Sohan, having heard of the woman’s situation on Monday attempted to secure station bail but was unsuccessful. He told this publication that he questioned the Police as why Harry was not handcuffed to a chair or bench in the view of Police Officers at the Outpost if they considered her suicidal. He said he was told that the officer who was responsible for taking her to the station was not there at the time and there was nothing that could have been done to change how she was accommodated.“We all know how the lockups are and to have someone in there without clothing could lead to other health issues, but it seems as though the Police are not concerned with that,” Sohan told this newspaper.It was not until Tuesday morning after much persistence that Harry was released on her own recognisance.According to Harry, she was helpless as several male officers came and looked at her without any clothing while she was in the cell.“I had to lie down on that cold concrete without any clothes and they did not give me anything to eat. They didn’t even give me some water to drink,” she told this publication.Efforts by this publication to get a comment on the matter from Police in Berbice proved futile.last_img read more

October retail sales sluggish

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre With Dec. 25 about seven weeks away, the retail industry is struggling with consumers’ eroding confidence and a weakening sales trend amid mounting problems in the economy. Throughout the year, shoppers have been faced with higher gas and food bills and depreciating value of their homes. Tighter credit has also become an issue in recent months. And while last week’s move by the Federal Reserve to cut a key interest rate by a quarter-point will make it cheaper to borrow money, economists say it may be too late to help boost holiday spending. Amid such challenges, many stores including Wal-Mart and Toys “R” Us Inc. aim to jump start the season early this year by offering door busters and big discounts starting last weekend in a season that is expected to show the slowest growth since 2002. But shoppers don’t seem to be in a hurry to buy. NEW YORK – The outlook for the holiday shopping season grew bleaker Thursday after retailers announced disappointing October sales results due to consumers’ ongoing worries about housing and higher energy prices. The downbeat news came from all sectors including mall-based apparel stores like Limited Brands Inc. and department stores like Macy’s Inc. Even upscale Nordstrom Inc. posted a rare sales decline while Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world’s largest retailer, posted sales below expectations despite its aggressive discounting heading into the holidays. Warehouse club operators including Costco Wholesale Corp. and BJ’s Wholesale Club Inc. were among the few standouts, a sign that consumers are searching for lower prices. “Overall, the sales trend continues to slow,” said Ken Perkins, president of RetailMetrics LLC, a research company in Swampscott, Mass. “I think the consumer is certainly feeling the (economic) pressure heading into the holidays.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

TRAFFIC LIGHTS AT BUNCRANA BRIDGE IS NOT THE ANSWER TO PROBLEMS – CAMPAIGNERS

first_imgMembers of a Buncrana group campaigning for a new bridge at Cockhill say suggestions such as traffic lights in the area is not the long-term solution.A recent protest by locals at Cockhill Bridge in Buncrana.The only answer is a new bridge, they argue.This is their statement. “THE economic development of Inishowen will greatly depend on improving the roads infrastructure from Dublin along the N2 and A5.“Part of this plan must be the provision of a new road bridge at Cockhill Buncrana to bring that development into North Inishowen.“We in Cockhill Bridge Action Group understand that this is a long term plan when funds become available, what we do not understand is why the road safety issue at Cockhill can not be dealt with right now by removing the pedestrians from the dangerous bridge by providing a pedestrian footbridge adjacent to the existing bridge.“Some of our members have seen examples of this type of solution on their travels around other parts of Ireland and we would like to see the same solution applied at Cockhill. “Tourism Ireland is now boasting to the rest of the world that people should come to Ireland and experience a modern country, part of that experience is that they will be able to drive from Cork to Belfast without going through a single set of traffic lights.“We met with the 9 councillors from Inishowen to try and persuade them not to install traffic lights at Cockhill as they would make a bad situation worse, Councillor Martin Farren said that he would be happy to see more traffic lights anywhere in Inishowen including the main street of Moville as they were used all over the world to great effect. He should try talking to the commuters in Dublin or any other town or city in Ireland. They are a necessary evil and part of the negative result of living in built up areas. Local authorities and planners are finding new ways of getting rid of traffic lights at great cost to tax payers and here in Inishowen our councillors and planning to install new sets of traffic lights were other solutions would be more beneficial and more cost effective.“Donegal County Council estimate that cost at €85,000, we would like to ask them does that include the maintenance contract and the cost of removal as they say that the lights would be a “temporary” solution. We suggest that the cost will exceed €100,000 for the total project.“This money would be better spent on a pedestrian footbridge that would not require highly skilled technicians and computers for it to function.“The initial cost would be greater but the running cost would be minimal for a pedestrian footbridge and this solution would remove pedestrians form the bridge completely. “Common sense must prevail and D.C.C. must reverse their decision to install traffic lights as their decision was a knee jerk reaction to our “Road Safety Poster Campaign”, which we admit was at times provocative and upset some councillors more than others.“The councillors informed us that our campaign had increased D.C.C.’s exposure to possible litigation as a result of a fatal road accident on the bridge and so they must be seen to act in some way towards minimising this possibility by “being seen to do something”.“We understand their predicament but we are still calling on them to reconsider their decision to install traffic lights and instead erect a pedestrian footbridge.”C.B.A.G. members: Tony Grant, Noel King, Brendan Flanagan.

GREAT LINE-UP PLANNED FOR ‘DOING BUSINESS IN DONEGAL’ EVENT

first_imgPromoting Doing Business in Donegal are from left: Matthew Pearson, Pearson Foods; Liam Doherty, Sean Doherty Fruit and Veg; Edel Patton, Patton Eggs; John patton, Patton Eggs, Joe Doherty, Inishowen Country Kitchen; Thomas Hughes, Donegal Rapeseed Oil; Andrew McElhinney, O’Donnell’s Bakery; Michael O’Donnell, Island Seafoods and Sharon Morrow, Island Seafoods.People interested in business in Donegal, including those already established or those hoping to start something new, are being urged to come along to the county’s first ever ‘Doing Business in Donegal’ event at the LYIT this Saturday April 26th.Organisers of the free event have assembled a superb line-up of speakers with a broad range of topics from finance, business, marketing, public relations, online business, entrepreneurship, motivation and much more.The idea, says Michael Tunney, head of Local Enterprise in Donegal, is that different rooms will simultaneously host a number of speakers and people who come along on the day will simply pick and choose which ones they’d like to attend. “We have always tried to take on board the feedback we have received from local businesses in Donegal and one of the things we have heard back from Enterprise Week for instance was that they’d love to have something like this – on one day and at the weekend.“In many respects this is like a mini Enterprise Week albeit rolled up into a single day. We have lined up great speakers on topics that have been most popular and requested for Enterprise Week and we’re hoping that with everything in one venue and on one day, there will be a positive response from the Donegal business community and those interested in starting business in the county.”Until recently Mr Tunney had been CEO of Donegal County Enterprise Board, who had forged strong links with the business community in Donegal over a 20-year period and were responsible for events like Enterprising Donegal Business Week over the past decade.Since April 15th the Board has now become the Local Enterprise Office and is part of Donegal County Council, but the experienced staff will continue to work with businesses across the county. Indeed, while they have been very much at the forefront of the organisation for the Doing Business in Donegal day on Saturday 26th, the event itself is once again a collaborative effort.“An event like this works best when there is co-operation and a multi-strand approach taken and once again we are delighted that the day will go ahead thanks to the support of a number of other business partners and agencies,” Mr. Tunney said.Pre-registration for the Doing Business in Donegal event is now available by visiting the website localenterprise.ie/donegal but it is not necessary to register for individual speakers’ events. You can also register by calling 07491 60735.Registration will also take place at 9.30am on the day but pre-registration is highly recommended.The Saturday will begin with a keynote address at 10am for all in attendance from motivational speaker Pádraig Ó’Máille and that will be followed by the morning sessions with multiple options available and people free to choose which of the speakers they like to hear. There will be more great speakers after lunch with those who attend once again free to choose which talks they’d like to attend and the day will wrap up with a final inspirational address from Jason Black.“We realise that people are giving up their Saturday to come along to an event like this and we will have a few little incentives on the day including the opportunity for someone to win a Kindle Fire. That said, the event has been put together in response to requests from businesses in Donegal and we’re certain that our local businesses will want to be there anyway,” Mr Tunney concluded.GREAT LINE-UP PLANNED FOR ‘DOING BUSINESS IN DONEGAL’ EVENT was last modified: April 22nd, 2014 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:Doing Business In DonegaldonegalletterkennyLYITMichael Tunneylast_img read more

As only he can, Warriors’ Stephen Curry turns fake-moon-landing farce into teachable moment

first_imgAnd now for something completely foreseeable.The Warriors’ Stephen Curry on Wednesday delivered the inevitable rim shot to the whole fake-moon-landing kerfuffle, telling ESPN, “Obviously I was joking when I was talking on the podcast.
