TCU beats TCU, 13-7, in spring football game

first_imgFacebook Twitter In his first action at TCU, Kenny Hill ran with the starters. Photos were limited to warmup drills. TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks ReddIt Grant McGalliardhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/grant-mcgalliard/ Grant McGalliardhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/grant-mcgalliard/ Facebook TCU students receive evacuation text by mistake printFreshmen Horned Frogs shined, the quarterback controversy went unsolved, and Gary Patterson spent over half of the game mingling with fans in the crowd at the TCU spring football game Friday night at Amon G. Carter Stadium.It was a relaxed atmosphere at the event, as a DJ pumped music through speakers near the field during the game and families and students mixed together in the stands. A solid crowd turned out to watch the game; most of the lower bowl on the side that normally holds the student section was filled.The offense, wearing purple and consisting of four squads helmed by each of the quarterbacks on the roster, managed just 13 points against the defense, who wore white and returned an errant pass for a touchdown of their own.Still, Patterson said postgame that he’s not putting too much stock into anything he saw tonight — not that he saw much of the game at all, as he was taking pictures with the Horned Frog faithful in the stands.“I’ll get a chance to watch tomorrow and see what goes on,” Patterson said. “This is what it’s all about, to give back to the fans.”“I didn’t watch that close. I spent probably 40 minutes on both sidelines telling everybody thank you.”Kenny Hill and Foster Sawyer worked with the first and second-strings, respectively. Hill made several accurate throws that were dropped by his receivers, which Patterson noted was a problem.“As a whole team, we’ve gotta catch the vertical ball better,” Patterson said. “It’s what we gotta do between now and August.”Sawyer had some strong completions down the field, but was intercepted for a pick-six by sophomore defensive end Tipa Galeia, who made an acrobatic catch that drew cheers from the crowd.Patterson said nothing on the quarterback front changed as a result of the night’s performances.“Tonight, Kenny started because it was his turn to start with the ones,” Patterson said. “But we’ll go into fall camp with two guys working to be the starting quarterback.”Grayson Muehlstein, who started with the third-string squad, provided the game’s lone touchdown on a pass to Taj Williams, a highly-touted junior college transfer. Jonathan Song added two mid-range field goals to complete the scoring for the offense.The best performances of the night arguably both came from freshmen. Redshirted newcomer Jeff Gladney played lockdown defense on wide receiver Deante Gray for much of the night, jamming his man at the line of scrimmage and causing several balls to fly over their intended targets.“Both him and Tony [James] did some good things out here,” Patterson said, “but they’ve got a long way to go to play on a consistent basis against the people we have to play against.”Running back Sewo Olonilua also stood out among the crowd. After fumbling on a carry, he bounced back and took his next touch 33 yards to set up Muehlstein’s touchdown pass.“He was good against the [third string],” Patterson said, “but against the [first and second string] he was just okay.”This game was Horned Frog fans’ last chance to see TCU in uniform before the season begins in September against South Dakota State.

Fort Worth officer released from hospital after shooting

first_imgFacebook Twitter Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday ReddIt Shane Battishttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shane-battis/ Mayor Betsy Price voiced her support for the injured officers on Facebook.“We are so proud of Fort Worth Police Department Officer’s sacrificial service to our community,” she wrote. “When you see police officers and first responders, be sure to thank them, give them a handshake and let them know just how thankful we are to them and their families.”According to a press release, officers were investigating a shooting in Wharton Drive when they were shot that night.Resident Vincent Fleece called to report that his father, Carl Fleece, had committed suicide in their house. He said his brother, Martin, was in the room when shots rang out and walked into a shed in the backyard after the incident.Five officers found Fleece with gunshot wounds in his head and a pistol lying nearby.Serrano and Azucena then approached the locked shed where Martin was. The press release wrote that the officers were concerned for his safety and forced the shed door open after identifying themselves as police.Martin fired a .45 caliber handgun which hit Serrano three times and Azucena once. Serrano and Sgt. Steve Fineman fired back, according to the press release.Officer Cliff Snodderly, who was in the house, assisted by firing his weapon at the shed and pulling Serrano away from the scene to treat him with a TacMed bag before an ambulance arrived to transport him to John Peter Smith Hospital.Soon afterwards, Azucena noticed that he had also been shot as he had a hole in his ballistic vest. He was then transported to the same hospital.Officers set up a perimeter around the house and tried to get Martin to surrender peacefully. SWAT officers launched gas canisters into the shed and tore down the shed wall with an armored vehicle.Martin was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound from a .45 caliber handgun and had not been hit by any of the officer’s rounds.“We are thankful these officers are alive and credit the ballistic vests that they were wearing for giving them a chance at survival,” the press release wrote.

Mumia Abu-Jamal : “I am an outlaw journalist”

first_img June 3, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information News Follow the news on United States Organisation Being the “Voice of the Voiceless” played a significant role. And this expression actually comes from the title of a Philadephia Inquirer headline after I was arrested in 1981. As a teenager, I was a radical journalist working on the staff of the Black Panthers national newspaper. The FBI was actually monitoring my writings since I was 14. My first job was being a reporter. Because of my writings, I am far better known that any inmate in America. If it were not the case, I think there would have been less pressure for the Court to create a special law to affect my conviction. Most of the men and women on death row are not well known. Because I continue to write, this is an element that would have affected the thinking of the judges and made them change the ruling for not giving me a new trial. I think they were thinking “You’re a big mouth, you won’t get a new trial”. You expect a little more from a federal Court. Because of my case, a dozen of other cases can be affected.What do you think of the media coverage of your case ? For further information and to offer support for Mumia Abu-Jamal, contact: Law Offices of Robert R. Bryan 2088 Union Street, Suite 4, San Francisco, CA 94123-4117 http://www.MumiaLegalDefense.orgPetition also available from our website 9/11 changed a lot of things in the US. People challenging or opposing the government would not be supported anymore. The press also changed. Things that were “allowable” became unacceptable after 9/11. I think 9/11 changed the way people thought and it changed the tolerance of the media. For example, even though 9/11 happened in Manhattan and Washington DC, the jail was closed for an entire day, here in Pennsylvania, and we were locked down. On August 29th, 2010, Reporters Without Borders Washington DC representative, Clothilde Le Coz, visited Mumia Abu-Jamal, prisoner on death row for nearly three decades. Ms. Le Coz was accompanied by Abu-Jamal’s lead attorney, Robert R. Bryan, and his legal assistant, Nicole Bryan. The meeting took place in room 17 of the State Correctional Institution (SCI) in Waynesburg, Greene county, Pennsylvania.Reporters Without Borders: As a journalist who continues to work in prison, what are your latest reports focused on?Mumia Abu-Jamal: The prison population in the United States is the highest in the world. Over the past year, for the first time in 38 years, the prison population declined.Some states, like California or Michigan, are taking fewer prisoners because of overcrowding. State budgets are restrained and some prisoners are released because of the economic situation.Prisons in America are vast and the number of prisoners is immense. It’s impressive to see how much money is spent by the US government and how invisible we are. No one knows. Most people don’t care. Some journalists report when there is a drama in prison and think they know about it. But this is not real : it is sensationalist. You can find some good writings. But they are unrealistic. My reporting is what I have seen with my eyes and what people told me. It is real. My reporting has to do with my reality. They mostly have been focusing on death row and prison. I wish it were not so. There is a spate of suicides on death row in the last year and a half. But this is invisible. I broke stories about suicide because it happened on my block.I need to write. There are millions of stories and some wonderful people here. Among these stories, the ones I chose to write are important, moving, fragile. I decide to write them but part of the calculation is to know whether it’s helpful or not. I have to think about that. As a reporter, you have a responsability when you publish those kind of stories. Hopefully, it will change their lives for the better.Do you think the fact you were a reporter affected your case ? Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says September 3, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Mumia Abu-Jamal : “I am an outlaw journalist” I have written on History, one of my passions. I would love to write about other things. My latest works are about war, but I also write about culture and music. I have an internal beat that I try to keep through poetry and drums. Very few things have matched the pleasure that I get from learning music. It’s like learning another language. And to write, that’s a challenge ! A music teacher comes every week and teaches me. A whole new world is opening to me and I get a better grasp of it now. Music is one of the best thing mankind has done. The best of our lives. Once, I read that I was no longer on death row. I was sitting here when I read it. I haven’t stopped sitting here for one second.Because I was coming from the craft, a lot of reporters did not want to cover my case because they feared they would be attached. They had to face criticisms for being partial and sometimes they were told by their editors they could not cover it. Since the beginning of the case, people who could cover me best were not allowed to. Most of reporters I worked with are no longer working. They retired and nobody took the work over.But the press should have a role to play here. Millions of people saw what was done in Abu Ghraib. Its leader, smiling on the pictures that have been published, worked here before going to Abu Ghraib. In death row, you have people without a high school degree who can decide whether someone lives or dies. For whatever reason, they have the power to make you not eat if they don’t want to. And none of that power is checked by anyone. There are informal rules. These people can make someone’s life a living hell on a wink. When I chose which stories I want to write about, I am never short on material. From a writing perspective, this field is rich.No matter what my detractors are saying about me, I am a reporter. This country would be a whole lot worse without journalists. But to many of them, I am an outlaw reporter. Prior to prison, in my work for various radio stations, I met people from all around the world and despite my conflicts with some editors, I had the greatest job.The support you receive in Europe compared to the support you receive here in the United States, is very different. How do you explain the difference and do you still believe international mobilization will be helpful ?Of course it will. The European mobilization might be pressuring the US regarding the death penalty.Foreign countries, like European ones, went through a specific history of repression. There was an in-their-bones-knowledge of what it is to be in prison. They know about prison, death row and concentration camps. In the US, very few people had that experience. That speaks to how cultures look at things in the world. In Europe, the very ideal of death penalty is an anathema. If the Supreme Court agrees on a new trial, only your sentence will be reviewed. Not your conviction. How do you feel about staying in prison for life, if you are not executed ?In Pennsylvania, life sentence is a slow death row. And under the state law, there are 3 degrees of murders. The first degree is punished by life sentence or death. The second and the third ones are punished by life sentence. People do not get out. The highest juvenile rate of life sentences is here in Pennsylvania.But here is my point, in Philadelphia, there were two other cases around my time were people killed a cop. The first one got aquittal. The second once, caught on a surveillance camera, did not get a death sentence.How do you manage to “escape” death row ?center_img to go further United StatesAmericas June 7, 2021 Find out more News United StatesAmericas News April 28, 2021 Find out more RSF_en To motivate more people around your cause, it might be helpful to get an up to date picture of you, today, on death row. Does the fact that we don’t have any updated picture of you affect your situation and the ability of more people to mobilize around your cause ? WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Having a public image is partly helpful. The essence of an image is propaganda. Pictures are therefore not that important. The human image is the true one. There, I try to do my best. In 1986, prison authorities took recorders from reporters and you were only allowed a pen and a paper. Now that there is only the meaning of one article left, one can make monsters and models from his article.

Santa Clarita high school gunman dies from self-inflicted gunshot wound

first_imgcarlballou/iStock(SANTA CLARITA, Calif.) — The 16-year-old accused of shooting multiple classmates, two fatally, has died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities confirmed on Friday.He was identified by authorities as Nathaniel Tennosuke Berhow.The three teenagers who survived being shot at their Santa Clarita, California, high school Thursday are all on the road to recovery, officials said. Two of the five victims, 15-year-old Gracie Anne Muehlberger and a 14-year-old boy, died in the hospital after the attack at Saugus High School. The boy’s name has not been released.The three other students shot — a 15-year-old girl, a 14-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy — are all expected to survive.A male student, on his 16th birthday, was in the quad around 7:30 a.m. local time when he took a pistol from his backpack and unloaded the entire magazine, firing six rounds apparently at random, shooting five classmates and himself, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said. Villanueva described it as a planned, deliberate attack, but the motive is unclear.The gunman was counting his bullets, the sheriff said, and was skilled in using guns. When the weapon jammed, he quickly managed to clear it and keep firing, authorities said, citing surveillance video.“From the time that he withdrew the handgun from his backpack to the time that he was on the ground with a gunshot wound to his head was about 16 seconds,” Capt. Kent Wegener of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told reporters late Thursday.The injured 15-year-old girl was shot below the bellybutton and has a bullet lodged in her hip, while the 14-year-old girl was shot in the shoulder and abdomen, hospital officials said Friday.Both girls, who know each other, were rushed to the same hospital where they are recovering. Both should be discharged in the next few days, officials said.The girls “held their composure despite being shot,” said Dr. Boris Borazjani, a trauma surgeon at Providence Holy Cross Hospital. “I’m very proud.”The teens were “stoic” and “composed, talking to us and I think they were handling it exceptionally well,” doctors said Friday.The injured 14-year-old boy has already been released from the hospital.The suspect remains in the hospital in critical condition from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, authorities said.The shooting “shook every one of us to our core,” said Deputy Superintendent Mike Kuhlman.Choir teacher Kaitlin Holt said one girl, shot in the hip and shoulder, was rushed into her classroom by other students. She gave the wounded student first aid and called 911.“I should have never had to treat a gunshot wound as a choir teacher,” Holt told ABC News. “And there’s something really wrong and something has to change, ’cause I held a bleeding child today in a room with 40 sobbing children.”Now, as the community wades through the chaos and grief, authorities are desperate for answers.It “still remains a mystery why,” Villanueva said Friday.“We have not yet established a motive or a nexus between the subject and his victims other than to say that they were all students at the high school together,” Wegener said.There’s no evidence so far to suggest the suspect acted on behalf of a group or with any co-conspirators, authorities added.The suspect was dropped off at school on Thursday by his mom, the sheriff added.A .45 caliber semiautomatic pistol was recovered from the crime scene. Several guns registered to the suspect’s father were recovered at the teen’s home, Villanueva said. Other guns found at the suspect’s home were not registered to anyone, he noted.The suspect’s mother and girlfriend have met with detectives, according to authorities.The William S. Hart Union High School District, which includes Saugus High School, canceled Friday classes at all of its schools in the wake of the attack.The school district holds shooting trainings, though “we prayed that we would never need it,” Kuhlman, the deputy superintendent, said in a letter to the community on Thursday.“Yet today, our brilliant staff bravely and vigilantly went into action,” Kuhlman said. “Placing a priority on their students’ safety, our wonderful Saugus High School team were quick to order students to shelter in place, and your students responded.”Kuhlman wrote to the parents: “Hold your children tight. Love them. Praise them for being responsible in the face of fear.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
