The smear campaign against Slovakia’s journalists by ex-Police Chief Gašpar’s needs to stop

RSF calls on the Slovak authorities to protect journalists and to enable an environment where they can do their job to report the news. News former Police President of Slovakia Tibor Gašpar /AFP Before Ján Kuciak’s murder, journalists had also been victims of smear campaigns, led by Slovakia’s former prime minister Robert Fico who stepped down after the revelation of his government’s ties to suspects of the reporter’s murder. Today, Slovakia is ranked 35th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index, after falling 18 places in the past two years. News June 2, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive News SlovakiaEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalistsMedia independenceProtecting sources CorruptionOrganized crimeDisappearancesJudicial harassment More than a year after Gašpar resigned from the position of Police President under public pressure, he started a communication campaign aimed against certain journalists, NGOs and the advocates of the Kuciak and Kušnírová families. He also filed a criminal complaint against the head of the Kuciak murder investigation team Peter Juhász for an allegedly illegal leak of information from the investigation file to the media. He has announced another complaint against Aktuality.sk.Gašpar’s aggressiveness increased when Peter Bárdy and Martin Turček from Aktuality.sk suggested that his Facebook profile and web page were not managed by himself, but by PR professionals. Although Aktuality.sk provided evidence, Gašpar accused them in his Facebook status of “the biggest lies”, a bias against him, and of replacing journalistic ethics by “targeted propaganda”. He has announced a legal complaint (probably for libel). In his more recent Facebook status, Gašpar suggests there is a conspiracy against him led by George Soros’ Open Society Foundation and including Slovakia’s “liberal media” He accused Aktuality.sk and Martin Turček by name of being “an instrument of propaganda”. Further targets of his smear campaign are Monika Tódová from Denník N, Jana Šimíčková from the weekly Plus 7 dní and the daily newspaper SME who have all been covering the Kuciak case and Gašpar’s involvement.Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and The European Centre for Press and Media Freedom (ECPMF) condemn former Police President Tibor Gašpar’s behavior. Smear campaigns against journalists are an attack against democracy.“Former Police President Tibor Gaspar’s behaviour is unacceptable. Not only does he lead a targeted smear campaign against journalists and threatens them with legal actions for libel, he is also trying to sabotage the investigation of the murder of Ján Kuciak and Martina Kušnírová. Instead of supporting his former colleagues, he has filed a criminal complaint against the chief investigator for allegedly illegal conduct. Tibor Gašpar has to stop these attacks against journalists, advocates of the families of Ján Kuciak and Martina Kušnírová and against the policemen investigating their murder”, said Pauline Adès-Mével, the head  head of RSF’s EU-Balkans desk.“Gaspar’s orchestrated smear campaign against Peter Bárdy and other journalists is dangerous and must stop immediately. Such behavior increases the risk of threats and violence against Bárdy, Tódová and other journalists.

Pete Hettema told Pasadena Now on Monday.The thieves made off with a specialized, neon green Roubaix bike as well as a black-and-white Trek Madone, both with electronic gear shifting, Hettema reported.While Hettema did not have the specific models that were stolen, both brands are distinctly big-ticket gear – with the most deluxe editions costing as much as $12,000 and more modest models running in the $2,000 to $3,000 range, according to the companies’ websites.Think of them as the Rolls-Royces and Bentleys of the bicycle world.According to the police report, the two thieves entered the victims’ driveway, possibly climbing over a fence before entering the open garage door.They did not enter the residence, Hettema said.Reportedly, one of the bike owners’ mothers was home at the time, but did not hear anything suspicious. It was not immediately known who reported seeing the thieves fleeing along Glen Oaks aboard their high-end hauls.“I don’t have anything on suspect information or what they looked like, just two suspects, no further details,’’ Hettema said.For now, at least, the best IDs will have to be those well-heeled wheels.last_img read more

Bottom row from left: Michael Silvas, Mikel Stegall, Wesley Dickenson. Previous articleCity of Odessa fights release of new Long complaintNext articlePermian Basin Drilling Report: Mar. 1 – Mar. 7 admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Police searching for man connected to hit and run Helen McNeal received a message from her son, Fred McNeal, on the night of Aug. 14 last year telling her he wanted to come home. After a short voice call, he told his mother he couldn’t talk right now and he would call her back later.But Helen McNeal said he never did call back. Ector County Sheriff’s Office officials believe it was that night that her son was kidnapped by seven people who assaulted and sexually assaulted the 26-year-old man before he died. He was later buried in a shallow grave in northwest Ector County.McNeal was first reported missing by his sister in September last year, and his body was recovered by Ector County deputies a month later after a cooperating source led deputies to McNeal’s buried body.After several months of interviews and interrogation, ECSO issued capital murder charges, a capital felony, against seven people believed to be involved in the death of Fred McNeal: Jose Ramirez, Jennifer Rogers, Wesley Dickenson, Michael Silvas, Mikel Stegall Jr., Eddie Barnes, and David Dearick. Fred McNealcenter_img “I pray every day that God gives me a sweet attitude when I go in front of these people,” Helen McNeal said. “They took my son away from a little girl.”Helen McNeal said her son had a 2-year-old daughter, Violet McNeal, who is with her mother. Fred McNeal had a prior history of methamphetamine use, Helen McNeal said, and added she fears what led to his death may have been drug-related.Fred McNeal had been out of prison for a couple of months, his mother said, he had been convicted of violating probation due to possessing a prohibited weapon. She said her son told her he was going to Odessa from Abilene for reasons she was unsure of, and a few weeks later he was reported missing.A probable cause affidavit states that the seven people who are charged kidnapped McNeal and took him to a travel trailer in the 1800 block of South Shawnee Trail. There, McNeal was reportedly assaulted, and the suspects reportedly used a solid object to penetrate his anus before he died in their custody.Sheriff Mike Griffis described it as a “brutal, gruesome crime” and called it the worst crime he has seen in his history in law enforcement.Griffis said he is unsure as to the exact relationship between all of the individuals, or of the relationship Fred McNeal had with any of them, but said he believes McNeal’s death may have been drug-related.“Some of these individuals are known drug users and abusers, but we haven’t identified a motive yet for sure,” Griffis previously said.McNeal’s Facebook profile shows Stegall, Dearick and Rogers on his friends list. Several of the suspects charged also have each other listed as friends on their Facebook profiles as well.The seven charged are familiar faces to many law enforcement officials, Griffis said, each one of them having a substantial record of felony and misdemeanor charges.Michael Silvas is the most notable of the seven, as this is the second capital murder charge he will be tried for after he was charged with capital murder in the shooting death of Ryan Stebbins in January along with Johnny Aguirre, who was also charged with capital murder.The seven have lengthy records of everything from burglary to dumping to possession. Here’s a look at their records:JOSE ARMANDO RAMIREZ:Convicted of unregistered vehicle and driving while license invalid in 2014.Convicted of burglary of habitation, a second-degree felony, in 2005.JENNIFER ROGERS:Charged with possession of drug paraphernalia, a class C misdemeanor, in Feb. 2018.Charged with theft of a firearm, a state jail felony, in 2016, but was dismissed.Convicted of possession of a controlled substance in 2016.Convicted of speeding in 2013.Rogers’ ex-husband said it was hard to believe when he heard the news of her being charged with capital murder. He said he still talks to her occasionally and she had never mentioned anything about the case to him.“I was sitting at home and my step-sister left me a message,” he said. “You can’t miss Jennifer; I spit my drink halfway across the living room.”He said Rogers had gone through hard times in her life.WESLEY DICKENSON:Convicted of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon, a third-degree felony, in January 2018.Convicted of burglary of habitation in 1987.MICHAEL SILVAS:Charged with capital murder in January 2018.Convicted of illegal dumping, a class B misdemeanor, in 2016.Convicted of forgery, a state jail felony, in 2013.Convicted of stealing or receiving a stolen check, a class A misdemeanor, in 2013.Convicted of two counts of driving while license invalid in 2011.Convicted of operating a motor vehicle without financial responsibility in 2011.MIKEL STEGALL JR.:Charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon in 2017.EDDIE BARNES:Convicted of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon in 2015.Convicted of theft of aluminum, a state jail felony, in 2012Convicted of theft of property, a class A misdemeanor, in 2011.DAVID DEARICK:Convicted of accident involving damage to vehicle, a class B misdemeanor, in February 2018.Convicted of theft of property in January 2018.Convicted of theft, a class B misdemeanor, in 2017.Convicted of theft of property in 2017.Charged with possession of drug paraphernalia in 2017.Convicted of two counts of unauthorized use of a vehicle, a state jail felony, in 2015.All are now charged with capital murder. The charge is capital murder because the victim died during the commission of other crimes including aggravated kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault. Should any of the seven be found guilty, they would be sentenced to either life in prison or death. Facebook Top row from left: David Dearick, Eddie Barnes, Jose Ramirez, Jennifer Rogers.

They serve as a legacy of the recent housing crisis, a byproduct of lengthy foreclosure timelines and mercurial state foreclosure statutes. RealtyTrac recently released a nationwide analysis of zombie properties, examining both states and institutions that have the most zombie properties.The company considers a zombie property any property that has “started the foreclosure process but never been foreclosed and the homeowner has vacated the property.”RealtyTrac found that nationally, zombie properties totaled 141,406 in the second quarter of 2014, accounting for 21 percent of properties in foreclosure. All told, one in every five foreclosures has been vacated by the homeowner before the foreclosure has been completed.Sequentially, zombie properties have been declining. Zombie properties are down 7 percent from roughly 152,000 in Q1 2014 and are down 16 percent from approximately 167,000 in Q2 2013.However, not all states are seeing a drop in the number of zombie properties—24 states and the District of Columbia saw an increase from the previous quarter. States experiencing the largest gain in zombie properties from Q2 2013 include Mississippi (2,450 percent), The District of Columbia (300 percent), Wyoming (100 percent), New Jersey (58 percent), and Delaware (56 percent).Florida accounted for more than one-third of all zombie foreclosures with 48,630. Rounding out the top five states were New York (12,666), New Jersey (12,170), Illinois (11,925), and Ohio (7,390).Not surprisingly, states with some of the most zombie properties also had some of the longest average times that homes have been foreclosed: New York (418 days), Florida (411 days), New Jersey (378 days), Illinois (272 days), and Hawaii (249 days).Financial institutions listed as the beneficiary on the foreclosure documents with the most zombie foreclosures were Wells Fargo (18,695), Bank of America (15,175), Chase (10,312), and US BankCorp (10,141). in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, Headlines, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Tagged with: Foreclosures RealtyTrac Zombie Foreclosureslast_img read more

5 Ways to Bridge a Racial Homeownership Gap

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post May 10, 2019 1,415 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Affordability African Americans Black Americans Diversity Homeownership Housing Finance Housing Supply Urban Institute 2019-05-10 Radhika Ojha Subscribe A new report by the Urban Institute has given insights into five common sense solutions to increase homeownership rates among African-Americans. Emerging from an earlier roundtable discussion at Urban Institute that examined the causes of the racial homeownership gap for this demographic, the report examined each of these five areas for potential solutions and future policy interventions.According to the report, progress toward bridging this gap will involve several approaches.Advancing Policy Solutions at a Local LevelInitiatives under this guideline included responsibly expanding small-dollar mortgages for purchases and renovations as well as reforming local land use, building codes, zoning laws, and regulations. The report also touched on strengthening access to and capacity of homeownership Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) networks and improving and investing in community development corporations’ (CDCs) capacity and partnerships at a local level. The report suggested that removing discriminatory terms in homeowners’ association (HOA), condominium owners’ associations (COA), and planned unit development (PUD) deeds on single-family residential units and expanding the reach of Housing Finance Agency (HFA) programs while considering property tax relief for low- and moderate-income taxpayers would go a long way in bridging the gap.Tackling Housing Supply Constraints and AffordabilityHousing supply and affordability were one of the key areas in need of reform to bridge the racial homeownership gap according to the report. Solutions in this area included increasing federal efforts to improve the existing supply of affordable housing and make investments directed toward historically segregated and devalued neighborhoods, as well as expanding production of alternate affordable housing units such as manufactured homes. This solution would also be strengthened through improving home preservation, financing, and credit underwriting, as well as overhauling or improving rehab purchase lending programs.Promoting an Equitable and Accessible Housing Finance SystemIncreasing visibility, access, and types of down payment assistance program were key to making the housing finance system more accessible to potential African-American homeowners according to the report. Apart from this, the report urged policymakers to strengthen the requirements that banks serve all communities in their market and consider expansion of obligation to other parts of the system. Additionally, improving and expanding financial education and homeownership preparation for renters would also help in increasing the homeownership rates among African-Americans.Outreach and Counseling for Renters and Mortgage-Ready MillennialsApart from exploring more options for use of fintech to advance the understanding and access to homeownership for millennials, the report also listed revitalizing and improving tax credit incentives for renters who want to become owners as well as expanding programs that automate saving for down payments/reserves and increased competition in credit evaluation as potential solutions.Focus on Sustainable Homeownership and PreservationA strong post-purchase counseling framework as well as promoting healthy mortgage servicing relationships and loss mitigation options would aid in creating a sustainable plan to increase homeownership rates among this demographic, the report revealed. It also said that building tools that would help in creating early warning displacement triggers, as well as an increased focus on the intergenerational transfers of wealth, estate planning, and undivided property, would help more Black Americans take a step towards sustainable homeownership.

First mass shooting of the year leaves four family members dead, boy arrested

first_imgkali9/iStock(GRANTSVILLE, Utah) — Residents in the town of Grantsville, Utah, are still searching for answers as to why a young boy murdered four of his family members inside their home.Police Cpl. Rhonda Fields announced on Monday the names of the four victims of the Haynie family who were shot and killed by their juvenile relative.The alleged shooter’s mother 52-year-old Consuelo Alejandra Haynie, 15-year-old Alexis, 14-year-old Matthew, and 12-year-old Maylan were found dead around 7 p.m. on Friday in 93 Eastmoor East. The patriarch of the family, 50-year-old Colin Haynie, was injured during the mayhem, but survived.Fields said the suspect’s name, age or exact relationship he has with the family are not being released until he is formally charged by prosecutors.The quadruple homicide is the first homicide “of this magnitude” in the town — population 11,568, according to the 2018 U.S. Census Bureau — in almost 20 years, Fields said. It is also the first mass shooting of the year, according to the FBI’s definition where three or more people — not including the shooter — were killed.“The biggest question for everyone here is why,” said Fields about the ongoing investigation.The suspect was taken into custody without incident and refused to speak to police.“Almost everyone knows everyone in this community … multiple schools and hundreds of children are effected,” said Fields. “It’s been a huge incident for us to be a part of.”Two fundraisers have been launched to “help give financial relief for the family” as well as an online effort launched by Danny Haynie — a relative of the victims — to raise money for funeral and medical expenses.The online fundraiser accumulated over $88,000 of the $90,000 goal as of Tuesday afternoon.Dozens of members of the community gathered on Monday night for a candlelight vigil for the slain family members.“My heart goes out to that poor young man who was in such a dark place,” said family friend Diane Passey at the vigil. “Some people have said he was lonely and needed a friend and to be loved. This may be an experience for all of us to learn from and to just be a little kinder.”The young suspect is pending arraignment on charges of four counts of aggravated murder, one count of attempted aggravated murder and multiple felony counts of discharging a firearm. It’s unclear who owned the murder weapon, said Fields.“It is an active investigation, more details will be released at a later date,” said Fields who also relayed that Colin Haynie requests privacy.Grantsville Mayor Brent Marshall said services, resources and grief counselors will be provided for the community for the rest of the week.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
