City of Elkhart, Martinsville Police Facing Lawsuits After Deleting Facebook Posts

first_imgCity of Elkhart, Martinsville Police Facing Lawsuits After Deleting Facebook PostsOlivia Covington for FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare After preventing local residents from commenting on their official Facebook pages, the city of Elkhart and the Martinsville Police Department are being sued for alleged violations of citizens’ First Amendment rights.The ACLU of Indiana filed lawsuits against the two municipal entities Friday on behalf of Richard Wolf, Elkhart, and Carole Bare, formerly of Martinsville, after they were blocked from the Elkhart city and Martinsville police Facebook pages last year.Wolf, who the ACLU described Friday as an advocate for people with disabilities, was blocked from the city of Elkhart’s Facebook page in 2015 after he posted concerns on the page about perceived violations of the American with Disabilities Act at the Lerner Theatre in Elkhart. Specifically, Wolf accused the theater of not having enough accessible parking for disabled customers. According to a Friday release from the ACLU, Wolf’s comments were removed and he was blocked from posting on the Facebook page.Similarly, Bare, who now lives in Sullivan, posted criticism of the Martinsville Police Department on the department’s Facebook page last fall and was subsequently blocked from posting additional comments on the page. Her original post was also removed, according to the ACLU.In the suits, which were filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, South Bend division against Elkhart and in the Southern District of Indiana, Indianapolis division against the city of Martinsville, Wolf and Bare contend that blocking them from posting on government-run social media is censorship and is in violation of their First Amendment rights to free speech.“When a government entity opens up a space for public comment, it cannot regulate those comments based upon someone’s viewpoint,” Jan Mensz, ACLU of Indiana staff attorney said in a Friday statement. “A citizen’s right to criticize their government is at the heart of what the First Amendment is meant to protect, and the municipalities, in these cases, violated that right.”The ACLU previously filed a similar lawsuit on behalf of Kymberly Quick and Deborah Mays-Miller, two Beech Grove residents whose Facebook posts that were critical of Beech Grove and its police department were taken down. The city eventually settled that suit, with each of the plaintiffs receiving nearly $7,500 each in costs and attorney fees.Vlado Vranjes, corporation counsel for the city of Elkhart, said Monday that he was aware of the filing, but that the city had not yet been served with the suit. Once Vranjes is able to review the suit, the city will file a response, he said.Martinsville Police Chief Matt Long, who was sworn in as chief in late September, said he was not aware of the suit. Long said he was familiar with Bare, but had not heard anything about the 2015 Facebook incident involving her since he became chief. Martinsville city attorney Dale Coffey also said he had not seen the suit as of noon Monday.The cases are Richard Wolf v. City of Elkhart, Indiana, 3:16-cv-00690, and Carol Bare v. City of Martinsville, Indiana, 1:16-cv-2683.last_img read more

The forecast for the evening calls for a low of 29 with winds gusting as high as 21 mph.Sunday will be dry, according to the weather service. Forecasters predict mostly sunny skies with a high near 37. Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A coastal storm dropped several inches of snow on Long Island early Saturday morning, setting the stage for what is likely to be a messy day on the Island. By early morning, some areas in Nassau and Suffolk counties were hit with up to 5 inches of snow. By the time most Long Islanders had rolled out of bed, the snow had already been replaced with either rain or freezing rain, or a mix of both. In some areas, the temperature at daybreak had already reached Saturday’s predicted high of 34. Long Island, which is under a winter weather advisory until 6 p.m. Saturday, should see a wintry mix of sleet and rain throughout the day before the preciptiation transitions back to snow in the late afternoon. “At that point, by late afternoon perception as a whole is starting to wind down,” said John Murray, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service office in Upton. last_img read more

Cabin fever hits Chinese football’s coronavirus ‘bubble’

first_imgApart from their hotels, stars such as Oscar, Marko Arnautovic and Marouane Fellaini see only stadiums — where no fans are allowed — and training pitches. They cannot meet their families.Coaches, support staff, referees and even the hotel workers must also stay in the “Blue” zone, away from the outside world. Everyone is tested for coronavirus once a week.The restrictive environment, coupled with the physical exertion of playing two matches a week in temperatures that have surpassed 35 degrees Celsius (95F), is proving difficult for some.”When I think about being walled in for the next one-and-a-half months, my head is spinning, so I don’t dare think too much,” one player told Soccer News, which warned last week that players had reached “a psychologically critical period”. Topics : Billiards and karaoke Qingdao Huanghai’s Erica Hernandez, the only woman physiotherapist in the CSL, has found the experience “enriching” despite being vastly outnumbered by men.In Suzhou the eight teams have their own building each in the Taimei Xiangguli Hotel.”We have open space to walk, a swimming pool, gym,” said the 40-year-old Spaniard.”Moreover, there are great benefits of having all teams here, such as meeting new people and new professionals and having the chance to share time and experiences.”On the eve of the season, the Chinese Football Association admitted it was concerned about the players’ mental well-being, especially being away from their families for so long.To while away the hours they can play on games consoles and arcade machines, and there is a library and karaoke.Some are shopping online, with all purchases thoroughly disinfected before players get their hands on them.But conscious that cabin fever could be setting in, officials in Suzhou have arranged a “Billiard Masters” competition between rival players, the Beijing Youth Daily said.There will also be an eSports tournament and reading club.”Hard training, fierce competition and long-term separation from relatives and friends requires players to relieve their mental fatigue in certain ways,” the state-run newspaper said. Strict coronavirus measures appear to be taking their toll on Chinese Super League footballers, with one saying his head was “spinning” in the claustrophobic “bubble” — and they still have six weeks to go.Chinese football introduced harsh rules when it launched the CSL season in two bio-secure bubbles after a five-month delay because of COVID-19, which emerged in Wuhan last year.The 16 teams disappeared into two sealed-off hotels, one in Suzhou and the other in Dalian, a month ago and will not leave until the end of September.center_img  ‘Unthinkable’ in Europe’ Other sports have created their own cocoons, but Chinese football’s is particularly demanding. The NBA basketball is playing out in a six-week bubble in Disney World, Florida, before the playoffs, while the CSL’s regular season will last about 10 weeks.The suspended English Premier League season was completed in about five weeks, while Australia’s National Rugby League and Aussie Rules also have more relaxed bubbles that allow travel and have games in front of fans.Rafael Benitez, the former Real Madrid manager who is now at Dalian Pro, is trying to make the best of being lumped together with seven other teams under one roof.The Spaniard has praised China’s response to the pandemic, but wrote on his blog Wednesday: “This kind of plan would be impossible in Europe, everyone stuck in a hotel -– staff, technical staff and players -– for two months, only being allowed out to train and play matches.”It’d be unthinkable,” added the 60-year-old, whose Dalian side is yet to win in five matches.Benitez, a Champions League winner with Liverpool in 2005, has spent some of his free time chatting with fellow coaches Fabio Cannavaro and Giovanni van Bronckhorst, and also played a bit of table tennis. They are all in Dalian, where teams have two floors each of a hotel for what will be nearly two-and-a-half months by the time they can finally leave. An unnamed boss of one club added: “I feel like the players can’t stand it anymore.”Soccer News also quoted Shanghai SIPG’s Brazilian forward Ricardo Lopes as saying: “The only problem is that my kids are all in Brazil and sometimes I miss them very, very much.”last_img read more

Unruh discusses midterm elections

first_imgThe Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics, in partnership with the USC College Democrats, USC College Republicans and the Daily Trojan, held its biweekly Students Talk Back forum on Wednesday. With the onset of midterm elections, the panel discussed potential changes in immigration policy.Midterm season · Commentators discussed the role immigration will play in the midterm elections this fall and the general elections in 2016. – Mariya Dondonyan | Daily TrojanThis week’s forum entitled, “Refugee Crisis at the Border: Immigration Reform’s New Challenge,” discussed the popular areas of concern regarding foreseeable changes in immigration policy.The talk featured panelists Dan Schnur, executive director of the Unruh Institute; Mike Madrid, Principal at Grassroots Lab; Christina Wilkes, communications director of the College Democrats; and Alexander Kludjian, executive board member of the College Republicans. The panel also featured co-moderators Kerstyn Olson, deputy director of the Unruh Institute and Isabella Sayyah, managing editor of the Daily Trojan.Recently, President Barack Obama announced his plans to halt any administrative action on immigration reform until midterm elections are over. A significant increase in the number of unattended children and minors left at the border has angered those who feel the government should take action.Olson opened the panel by discussing the way in which the presidential candidates for the 2016 election will handle the issue of immigration reform.Madrid set the stage for the discussion by pointing out some key differences in voter apathy regarding immigration between voters in California and those in the Midwest and the South.“Where it gets particularly complicated for the President is with some of the battleground states, states in the Midwest and South where more conservative Democrats [are trying] to hold their senate seats, and the President has decided to hold off action until the end of election,” Madrid said.Madrid also pointed out that Latinos in the past had the tendency to vote in a block. He said that this has changed, as generational differences reveal changes of opinion among Latino voters of different ages.“The calculation is a complicated one because it affects both Latino voters, which is of course paramount to the Democratic party base, but also white, Midwest and Southern voters, where the issue of immigration is seen completely differently,” Madrid said.Wilkes commented on the issue by stating that a political candidate’s relevancy depends on his or her ability to respond to the United States’ shifting demographics.She pointed out that it was important for Republicans to undergo a shift in thinking with regard to the Latino population in the United States.“It’s not looking like the cooperation between the House and the Senate is really going to allow for that comprehensive bill to get done by 2016,” Wilkes said. “So, I think it’s going to play a very important role, and in this past election Obama won 71 percent of the Latino vote. I think Republicans are finally realizing that they have to beacon a message that is more sympathetic towards Latino voters.”Schnur pointed out that that Obama has faced criticism in response to his lack of action on immigration reform. Last June, Obama stated he would utilize executive action in responding to immigration issues if Congress did not take significant steps to complete comprehensive immigration reform. However, such executive action did not materialize.“Over the course of the summer, as we saw this tremendous influx of young people coming from Central America, national public opinion turned in the exact opposite direction and made Americans much less receptive to the kinds of comprehensive reform that President Obama and Bush had been fighting for,” Schnur said.Kludjian said that potential changes in immigration reform could be an opportunity for the Republican Party to gain an advantage in the midterm elections.“I think the GOP has a golden opportunity because we do have a president that has largely ostracized the Latino community, who has promised them things and has not delivered, and I think the changing demographics is something that is concrete and something we can work off of,” he said.last_img read more
