Victim’s girlfriend says Florida gunman provoked fatal ‘stand your ground’ shooting

first_imgPinellas County Sheriff/ABC News(PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla.) — Britany Jacobs, the girlfriend of the man shot and killed in a Florida parking lot last week, says her boyfriend was just coming to her defense and the gunman “wanted someone to be angry at.” Now she wants “justice,” she says.Jacobs, who witnessed the shooting along with the couple’s 5-year-old son, said she and her two small children were waiting in the car for her boyfriend, Markeis McGlockton, while he ran into a convenience store in Clearwater, Florida. Onlooker Michael Drejka got out of his parked car and began “harassing” her about being parked in a handicap space, she said.Surveillance video showed McGlockton exiting the store and shoving Drejka to the ground. Drejka then drew a handgun and shot and killed McGlockton.“He wanted somebody to be angry at. He just wanted someone to fight him,” Jacobs said in an interview with Good Morning America on Monday. “He was picking a fight. I’m just sitting, waiting for my family to come back to the car.”Drejka told deputies in Pinellas County he feared for his life, according to authorities, but McGlockton’s girlfriend.Police said they won’t press charges against Drejka, who is white, for shooting McGlockton, who was black, citing the state’s so-called “stand your ground” law.Jacobs, who was waiting in the vehicle with the couple’s two younger children — an infant and a 3-year-old — said she started feeling “scared” when she noticed how fast the argument was escalating. It wasn’t long before McGlockton came out along with their 5-year-old son and tried to diffuse the situation.Surveillance video from the Circle A Food Store in Clearwater, about 30 minutes east of Tampa, showed McGlockton leaving the store and shoving Drejka hard to the ground.“By this time a witness pulls up and everybody hears us going back and forth with one another. … A witness goes in the store and he let the owner know that there was somebody out there messing with a woman in a car,” she said. “My man hears what’s going on, sees the guy yelling at me and I’m sitting in the car. My man is defending me and his children, so he pushes him down.“The guy is on the ground and he pulls the gun out. … My dude steps back ’cause my dude is fearing for his life — all of us were,” she added.McGlockton was stepping back when Drejka pulled the trigger, she said, shooting him just a few feet away from her and their children. Neither she nor McGlockton knew that the man was armed.McGlockton stumbled back inside of the store and fought for his life for nearly 30 minutes, according to Jacobs. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.“Everybody is panicking … my son is screaming, but it was too late,” she said. “It’s hard for a 4- or 5-year-old to witness what he saw. … It’s really tough for him.”Bob Gualtieri, the Pinellas County sheriff, insisted he has to follow the “stand your ground” law, which dictates that if a person feels threatened they have the right to shoot.“He told deputies that he had to shoot to defend himself. Those are the facts and that’s the law,” Gualtieri said at a press conference. “No matter how you slice it or dice it that was a violent push to the ground.”Investigators said Drejka has a concealed weapons permit.The owner of the convenience store in Clearwater told ABC affiliate WFTS that Drejka had assaulted customers in the store’s parking lot before. And Rich Kelly, who frequents the store, claimed Drejka picked a fight with him over a parking spot about a month ago, calling him racial slurs and threatening to kill him, WFTS reported.A sign posted outside Drejka’s home Friday said “No Comment” in bold letters, according to WFTS. The State Attorney’s Office is currently investigating the matter further.“He was a good man and all he was trying to do was protect his family,” Jacobs said. “I just want justice. I need something to be done because this is not right.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Uganda came third on the medals table, with one gold and two bronze for the junior women and senior men.Timothy Toroitich was the best placed Ugandan at 9th position in the senior men’s race.Winner Geoffrey Kipsang Kamworo said, ” I was confident of retaining my title. When the Ugandan broke away I kept my cool and ran my race. I knew he would get tired. His pace was so high and it would have been amazing if he had maintained to the end.”Stephen Kiprotich, part of team Uganda, came 17th. ” I feel sorry for Joshua (Cheptegei) because he was in great shape coming into the race. It is sad he didn’t win. He made a terrible mistake of breaking away so early. He should have waited at least until the last 2km.

Three of them are Joshua Cheptegei, Stephen Kiprotich and Timothy Toroitich.Kiprotich congratulates Cheptegei after the Uganda Cross Country championships.

This race is very important to me.”“In Uganda we have a very strong tradition in cross country running,” Kiprotich told the IAAF. “It has always been a key for any athlete preparing for track season. I have been competing in cross country from the start of my running career since I have been in school and it’s very easy to find good places to train for cross country in Uganda.”Kiprotich has in the last five years shown the Kenyans and Ethiopians can be beaten at their own game. This he did in the marathon at the 2012 Olympic and 2013 world champions, all preceded by a sixth place showing at the 2011 World Cross championships in Spain.At Uganda’s trials for this year’s event, he showed he can still match the change of pace from the marathon to the cross country, by finishing 5th.Toroitich. IAAF PHOTOToroitichAll the stars, fresh from IAAF Cross Country Permit series November 2016 to February 2017, will travel to Kampala with a familiar name to look out for – Timothy Toroitich.Before breaking off the circuit in November to prepare for Kampala 2017, Toroitich had swept to victory in the second leg race of the 2016-17 IAAF Cross Country Permit series.Two weeks earlier, Toroitich finished second in the opening race of the winter’s IAAF Cross Country Permit series behind Bahrain’s Aweke Ayalew.Toroitich finished fifth in the world cross country championships in 2013, and was eighth in the 10,000m at the IAAF World Championships Beijing 2015.Cheptegei on the medals podium as national anthem is played at the Uganda trialsJoshua CheptegeiJoshua Cheptegei destroyed a strong field to win the senior men’s gold at the National Cross Country Championships in Kampala in January to show he will be the man to watch on Sunday.Defending champion Phillip Kipyeko set the early pace at the Kampala trials, but when Cheptegei took charge in the second of five laps at Kololo, the battle for everyone else remained for second place.Cheptegei is the 2014 world U20 10,000m champion and 2015 African junior cross-country gold medalist.The 20-year-old doubled at last year’s Olympic Games, finishing an impressive sixth in the 10,000m and eighth in the 5000m on his debut, and will clearly be favourite to dethrone the Kenyans and Ethiopians.Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2 RACE PREVIEWKiprotich trains at Kololo yesterday. PHOTO KCCAMEDIAStephen Kiprotich is confident. He knows better than many what it takes to win gold, and in team Uganda he has seen a lot in training to show that glory beckons.“Going by what I saw in training, I believe our time for gold has finally come,” Kiprotich said, adding that “the course is perfect. It’s a bit demanding… but very good for me.”Standing in Uganda’s way at another IAAF World Cross Country Championships are the mighty Kenyans and Ethiopians.A Kenyan or Ethiopian has won the top men’s individual title in 24 of the last 30 years.The two nations’ record in the team event is even more intimidating – won all from 1986 to 2015. The story is increasingly similar in the women and junior events, with the Kenyans and Ethiopians dominating the past decade.The story, according to Kiprotich will change at 2pm today  when Uganda hosts the 42nd IAAF World Cross Country Championships Kampala 2017.Uganda has come close to taking the individual men’s gold once before through Moses Kipsiro in 2009 and will not get a better chance to take charge than this year at their own Kololo Independence Grounds on March 26.“We have a selected a very strong team. We we want to challenge the dominant sides…we will give them a run for their money,” promised Uganda athletics chief Domenic Otucet.The world cross country championship is considered one of the most difficult races to win, even more difficult than the Olympic Games, due to the tough course terrains.Uganda becomes only the fourth African country to host the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) event in its 44th year history.last_img read more

Portugal, Mexico, Russia tussle for Confed Cup semi-final berths

first_img– ‘Brave’ –Like he did before the Mexico game, Hudson called on the Kiwis to be “brave” against the European champions.This will be the first senior meeting between Portugal, ranked eighth in the world, and New Zealand, who are 95th — sandwiched between Guatemala and Madagascar.The Kiwis, appearing at the Confederations Cup for the fourth time, are still hunting their first win in the tournament after just one draw and 10 defeats.They gave the Mexicans a scare in Sochi with Leeds striker Chris Wood giving New Zealand a shock first-half lead.It was their first goal in 555 minutes of Confederations Cup football, but Mexico’s Raul Jimenez and Oribe Peralta struck in the second half as the Kiwis faded.“We took a great side all the way against Mexico and we can do that against Portugal,” said Wood.“If we play like we did the other night, I have all the confidence in the world.”Russia need to beat Mexico in Kazan to avoid their prospects hinging on a Portugal loss, while a point would be enough for the Mexicans to advance.After the draw with Portugal, Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio made eight changes against New Zealand, a plan that initially backfired before his side recovered after the break.Star striker Javier Hernandez, left out against New Zealand, is expected to start while Osorio must replace the injured Carlos Salcedo and Hector Moreno in defence.“We are extremely confident,” said Osorio.“For us it was very important to get three points against New Zealand and now against the hosts we feel that we have a great chance.”Russia coach Stanislav Cherchesov said he will decide his starting line-up after training with an electric atmosphere expected for the national team’s first game at the Kazan Arena. Ronaldo likely to be restedSochi, Russia | AFP |  Portugal are set to rest Cristiano Ronaldo for Saturday’s clash against New Zealand as the Euro 2016 winners look to clinch their place in next week’s Confederations Cup semi-finals.Ronaldo brushed off allegations of tax evasion in Spain with man-of-the-match performances in the 2-2 draw with Mexico and 1-0 victory over hosts Russia, when he scored the winner.Fernando Santos is expected to rotate his squad, leaving out the likes of Ronaldo against the already-eliminated Kiwis.New AC Milan signing Andre Silva should lead Portugal’s attack in Saint Petersburg, where Portugal will be the heavy favourites.“We have to manage the players and there will be rotation based on how the players are feeling, but it’s easy when you have a group you trust,” said Santos.“I’m not going to say whether Ronaldo will play or not, because I don’t want our opponents to know.“New Zealand gave Mexico a few problems and we will have to be on our toes,” he added. The All Whites lost 2-1 to Mexico on Wednesday despite having led at half-time.Santos said left-back Raphael Guerreiro is ruled out with a bruised foot, and not a fractured leg, as was first thought after Wednesday’s narrow win over Russia.“He told us he could have a small fracture, fortunately it is not as serious an injury, but he won’t play tomorrow,” said Santos.Things remain tight in Group A before Saturday’s final round.Mexico are top, level with Portugal on four points but ahead by virtue of having scored one more goal, and face Russia, who are just a point behind in third.New Zealand will have to settle for the chance to play the role of spoiler after losing both their games so far.The Kiwis will breathe a slight sigh of relief if Ronaldo is rested, with the Real Madrid star netting 15 times in his last nine matches for club and country.“Even if you take Ronaldo out of the team, you still have world-class players like (Ricardo) Quaresma and Nani, we have a game plan and we won’t be overawed,” said coach Anthony Hudson.“The Portuguese probably don’t want to be playing New Zealand right now.” Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Hulkamania running wild again in WWE return

first_imgIn this April 3, 2005, file photo, Hulk Hogan fires up the crowd between matches during WrestleMania 21 in Los Angeles. (AP Photo/Chris Carlson, File)Hulkamania is running wild again in the WWE.Hulk Hogan, perhaps the biggest star in the company’s 50-year history, is set to bring the red-and-yellow back to the sports entertainment behemoth and will host the April 6 WrestleMania in New Orleans.Hogan returns to the WWE after a six-year absence and will be on Monday’s “Raw” on the USA Network.  Hogan will also bring the muscle for the WWE’s launch of its own network: He will appear on “WWE Raw Backstage Pass,” airing live on WWE Network at 11:05 p.m. on Monday night.“I definitely want to stay here in the WWE,” Hogan told The Associated Press on Friday. “I just can’t see myself ever being anywhere else. This is home. It always has been home. In the twilight of my career, what a great way to be part of the final hurrah for Hulk Hogan and all the Hulkamaniacs.”The 60-year-old Hogan’s return is perfectly timed for both the 30th WrestleMania and the new network, which debuts Monday as a streaming service for $9.99 per month with a six-month commitment and will include all 12 pay-per-view events.Hogan last appeared on WWE’s flagship show “Raw” in December 2007.Hogan was the main draw for the first WrestleMania in 1985 and was a fixture for years in WWE’s signature event, facing everyone from Andre The Giant and Randy Savage to The Rock and, yes, company chairman Vince McMahon. He’s in shape and could be ready to mix it up, if needed, at the Superdome.But no WrestleMania match is scheduled.“Right now, it’s not in the plans,” Hogan said. “But like they say in the WWE, never say never.”Hogan, starting his fourth stint with the WWE, said he would participate in WWE Network programming and make community and media relations appearances for the company.Hulkamania was born in 1984 when he defeated The Iron Sheik to become WWE champion at Madison Square Garden. He won six WWE championships and was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005 by Sylvester Stallone.“It’s time for him to come home,” said Paul “Triple H” Levesque, a wrestler and top WWE executive. Hogan and Triple H met at a charity event late last year, which started to lay the groundwork for The Hulkster’s return.Hogan is the latest estranged star to return to the company in the last two years, joining Bruno Sammartino and The Ultimate Warrior.In his absence, WWE certainly hasn’t forgotten about Hogan, putting him on the cover of its recent DVD release “The Best of WWE at Madison Square Garden.” He’s also a playable character in six classic WrestleMania matches in 2K Sports’ “WWE2K14” video game that came out late last year.“I don’t think there’s ever been a doubt that Hulk Hogan was, in some way, a WWE commodity,” Levesque said.Hogan has also wrestled for other promotions including the now-defunct World Championship Wrestling and spent the last four years with TNA Wrestling. Like his bad guy Hollywood Hogan personna would have said, he hoped this relationship with WWE was “4 Life.”“It looks like this was always the direction I was going to go in,” Hogan said. “It’s like I drifted apart from home base for a while. But this time, everything seems to be a perfect fit.”last_img read more

The Posture of Pain

first_imgKenton Stuth, owner of In Touch Therapy, has been a licensed massage therapist for eight years.We’ve all experienced it – a strain in our neck or a pinch in our lower back. These common discomforts can often make daily activities and chores strenuous and difficult. However, Founder and Clinic Director of In Touch Therapy, Kenton Stuth, says there are a few simple changes we can make in our daily movements that can help alleviate and even prevent these common pains.Stuth says one of the most common complaints his clients come in with is in regard to neck pain. He says people often attribute pain in their neck to “sleeping wrong.” This is, however, a common misconception.Stuth says, rather than “sleeping wrong,” people engage in activities prior to sleep that cause tenseness in the neck region. “I can’t tell people to stop sleeping,” he explains, so instead, Stuth suggests changing the activities you engage in prior to sleep that could be causing discomfort when you wake up. “It’s the daily, little things we do,” he says. “You don’t throw your back out from loading the dishwasher wrong. You throw your back out from loading the dishwasher wrong for 20 years.”Stuth continues, explaining that, “People all have postures which contribute to their pain.” Being able to identify where your pain is coming from is a good place to start when trying to alleviate discomfort. Stuth says pain usually travels front-to-back and bottom-to-top.  So if you are experiencing pain in your back, look at your front, and if you feel pain in your knee, look at your ankle.“The biggest thing that hurts people is bending over. When you bend over – at the knees or back – and twist at the same time, it puts a lot of pressure on the discs in your back. This can cause herniations and other painful conditions,” says Stuth. “Try to keep everything pointed the same direction. If you bend over and need to turn, bend, stand up, and then turn your entire body, rather than twisting while bent over,” suggests Stuth.Stuth says a few other good rules of thumb to follow are:Don’t lean over when you brush your teeth. And, if you find yourself leaning over anyway, use your hand to prop yourself up.When you get out of bed, don’t sit up. Turn on your side, then push yourself up.If you work at a computer, elevate the monitor so that it is level with your vision and your head is pointed straight ahead.Find out which of your eyes is dominant and orient your office or workspace so that it accommodates your dominant side, alleviating strain.These are just a few changes you can apply to the way you move your body during daily activities that will encourage healthy body movement and alleviate pain brought on by improper, repetitive motions.

WDFW approves four days of razor clam digging starting Friday, March…

first_imgFacebook39Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Washington Department of Fish and WildlifeRazor clam diggers can round up their shovels, clam guns and tubes for a four-day dig beginning March 20. State shellfish managers with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) approved a dig on evening low tides after recent marine toxin tests showed the clams are safe to eat.The approved dig is for the following beaches, dates and low tides:March 20, Friday 5:27 pm, 0.4 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksMarch 21, Saturday, 6:07 pm, 0.4 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis March 22, Sunday, 6:41 pm, 0.4 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, MocrocksMarch 23, Monday, 7:12 pm, 0.5 feet; Long Beach, Twin Harbors, CopalisNo digging is allowed before noon when low tide occurs in the evening.“We are approving this dig based on favorable marine toxin findings, but folks should use their own judgment and consider COVID-19 when making travel plans,” said Larry Phillips, WDFW coastal region director, referencing recent announcements that razor clam festivals centered on Ocean Shores and Long Beach have been postponed.  For a list of proposed razor clam digs on Long Beach, Twin Harbors, Copalis and Mocrocks beaches through April, please see our razor clam webpage.WDFW authorizes each dig independently after getting the results of marine toxin testing. Final approval of the tentatively scheduled openings will depend on whether results of marine toxin tests show the clams are safe to eat.In order to ensure conservation of clams for future generations, WDFW sets tentative razor clam seasons that are based on the results from an annual coast-wide razor clam stock assessment and by considering harvest to date. To see videos of WDFW’s sustainable management work for razor clam seasons, visit our razor clam page.WDFW is also asking razor clam fans around the state to weigh in on the perennial question: Which is better, clam gun or shovel? To register support for a favored digging method, clam diggers can post a photo or video, complete with hashtag #TeamClamShovel or #TeamClamGun on any social media before the end of the spring season.All diggers age 15 or older must have an applicable 2019-20 fishing license to harvest razor clams on any beach. Licenses, ranging from a three-day razor clam license to an annual combination fishing license, are available on WDFW’s website and from license vendors around the state.Under state law, diggers at open beaches can take 15 razor clams per day and are required to keep the first 15 they dig. Each digger’s clams must be kept in a separate container.Persons with disabilities who need to receive this information in an alternative format or who need reasonable accommodations to participate in WDFW-sponsored public meetings or other activities may contact Dolores Noyes by phone (360-902-2349), TTY (360-902-2207), or email ([email protected]).

Indians bounce back after win-streak snapped

first_imgThe Indians got back to work without a hitch, taking a 1-0 lead in the second inning before Kansas City’s Alex Gordon homered in the top of the third to make it 1-1.Cleveland sent seven batters to the plate in the bottom of the third, and two of them scored. After the Royals pulled back a run in the top of the fourth, the Indians piled on four runs in the bottom of the frame to take control.The Indians led 7-4 when Encarnacion led off the seventh inning with a homer against Royals relief pitcher Kevin McCarthy.With the victory, and the Minnesota Twins’ loss to the Toronto Blue Jays later Saturday, the Indians clinched their second straight American League Central division title.ADVERTISEMENT Lindor had three hits on the night and Edwin Encarnacion homered as the Indians rebounded briskly from their 4-3 loss to the Royals on Friday night.That was the Indians’ first defeat since August 23. Their 22 straight wins established an American League record and surpassed the 21-game streak put together by the National League’s Chicago Cubs in 1935, but came up short of the Major League record 26-game winning streak of the 1916 New York Giants.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“We had good energy.
