first_imgThe center has started tracking noose incidents since the so-called Jena Six case. While hate speech is banned in many parts of Europe, the United States has consistently protected even the vilest forms of expression. Painting a swastika on a public building, for example, may result in vandalism or other property-related charges, but the symbol itself caries no added penalty. Likewise, screaming anti-gay slurs is not in itself prosecutable, although if a crime is committed, the slurs – like the display of a swastika or a noose – could be evidence of a hate crime and lead to penalty enhancements. But Richardson said in an interview she thinks Congress should look to Europe’s example and ban certain forms of expression. She said she plans to take civil liberties organizations’ concerns into account as she and others develop specific penalties for noose hanging, but said civil liberties is not her only concern. “We’ll create something right for this country. I will not be hindered, though,” she said, adding that she is not opposed to including swastikas or other “symbols that have a history of intolerance” in future legislation. Symbols, Richardson said, matter. “Why do you think it should be a criminal offense if you do aggravated assault on somebody, or battery?” she said. “It is no different to use a prop or symbol as it is to use a fist or gun.” lisa.friedman@langnews.com 818-713-3329160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Dennis Parker, director of the national ACLU’s racial justice program, said civil libertarians fear that banning symbols is a slippery slope. If white groups could have had the raised fist – a symbol of the black power movement – banned in the 1970s, they would have, he said. “We would be concerned about something that broadly seeks to prohibit specific symbols or speech,” Parker said. “I understand the frustration, but I am not sure the answer is to say let’s get rid of the symbol. “The point of the First Amendment is not just to protect speech that everyone agrees with,” he said. The Southern Poverty Law Center reported more than 50 noose incidents since September. Hanging ropes evoking the thousands of lynchings of black men that occurred in the U.S. have been found on a Columbia University professor’s door, a Boston subway train and a Houston factory, among others. WASHINGTON – For Rep. Laura Richardson, a noose is a “horrible symbol of racism” and hanging one in public should be a crime. The Long Beach Democrat’s first legislative act of her congressional career last week was to push a resolution criminalizing hanging nooses. The move follows a rash of hate crimes involving nooses, including one hung on a tree at a high school in Jena, La., over the summer. That incident plus the arrests of six black teens accused of beating a white high school student in a separate incident set off protests in the town that drew national attention. “If it takes a House resolution to get the message across that it’s time to move beyond this horrible symbol of racism, then let it be known that the members of the 110th United States Congress are ready to act on it,” Richardson said in a statement. last_img

first_imgCELTIC coach and Donegal GAA manager Jim McGuinness is in Glasgow this evening for the club’s glamour last 16 Champions League clash with Juventus.The Hoops are hoping to take a first leg lead against the Turin club.McGuinness has been working with younger members of the Celtic squad in his role as a sports psychologist. A host of Donegal GAA stars will also be at the game – which is live on TV3 from 7.30pm.“There is a real belief anything can happen over two games,” said Neil Lennon today.“We go into the tie as underdogs but nothing is going to be decided at the end of 90 minutes.”Juventus currently top Italy’s Serie A and have a wealth of top players. “They have excellent strikers – Mirko Vucinic, Fabio Quagliarella, Sebastian Giovinco – and they have also brought in Nicolas Anelka,” said Lennon.“But the one who has caught my eye is Alessandro Matri. He looks an excellent young player. The team is blessed with fantastic footballers but we knew that before the tie or before any preparations were made.“It would be dangerous to underestimate Celtic. We have proved already this season that we can be a match for anyone.”Celtic reached the last 16 by finishing second in their group behind Barcelona, having beaten the Spanish giants at Parkhead.“It is the only show around, a European night at Celtic Park,” said the manager. “It will be a fantastic football arena – for me, one of the best atmospheres in world football, never mind European football – and it is for our supporters.“Obviously, the players will play their part but to bring these nights back to the club is something that means a lot to me.“Anyone who has experienced a Champions League night here before will know what I am referring to.”Striker Georgios Samaras is battling a hamstring injury to feature against Juventus, while defender Efe Ambrose was in action for Nigeria on Sunday, helping them win the African Cup of Nations. “We will see what condition he is in and if he is OK, we will have him in the squad,” Lennon said of Ambrose’s return to Glasgow.“We will give Georgios as much time as he is needed. He has been doing pretty aggressive rehabilitation work and we are hopeful he will be okay.“If not, then I have a very strong squad and we will have him fit for the second leg.”JIM McGUINNESS IN GLASGOW FOR CELTIC’S CHAMPIONS LEAGUE CLASH WITH JUVENTUS was last modified: February 12th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:JIM McGUINNESS IN GLASGOW FOR CELTIC’S CHAMPIONS LEAGUE CLASH WITH JUVENTUSlast_img
