Man in stable condition after being shot in head at Maniwaki courthouse

Posted On Oct 17 2019 by

first_imgMONTREAL – An altercation at a Quebec courthouse that left an 18-year-old man in hospital with a gunshot wound to the head is raising questions about security at the province’s courthouses.The young man was listed in stable condition Thursday, a day after he was shot after fighting with a special constable at a small courthouse in Maniwaki, Que., about 130 km north of Ottawa.Franck Perales, the head of the union representing courthouse constables, said his organization has been calling for more security in courtrooms across the province.“For two or three years the union has been ringing the alarm,” he said in an interview. “We’ve had meetings with the government and concerned parties to inform them on the lack of manpower, especially in smaller courtrooms or those (outside big cities).”Quebec’s police watchdog released a statement Wednesday saying the 18-year-old — who has been identified as Steven Bertrand — managed to seize the constable’s baton and allegedly used it to strike the officer over the head at the courthouse.The constable then took out a gun and fired it, hitting Bertrand at least once in the head, the statement said.Perales believes the incident could have been avoided by having more than one special constable on duty.“Since there was no backup, no reinforcement, no support, he had to manage alone, and nobody helped him,” Perales said.A bystander uploaded a video to YouTube purporting to show the incident. The video shows someone in uniform grappling with a man in a room lined with chairs, who is eventually joined by several other uniformed agents.Moments later, the video shows an officer seemingly pointing a gun and shooting once towards a target that is off-camera, followed by people screaming and crying.Perales said the video showed the constable had called for help and had not received adequate support from the people nearby, whom he believes to be private security guards and youth support workers.He said the union has already begun legal action against the province over the use of private security guards in courthouses in place of special constables, who are subject to the Police Act and work under the same code of ethics as police officers.Perales said he doesn’t want to blame the private security officers, who in his opinion simply don’t have enough training to intervene in similar situations.Bertrand’s mother, Julie, wrote on Facebook that her son was stable and the bullet hadn’t hit his brain.“He is strong and he is fighting for his life,” she wrote late Wednesday.On Thursday, she posted photos that showed him in a hospital bed hooked up to tubes and wearing a neck brace, his eyelids purple and swollen.A spokesperson for Quebec’s independent police watchdog added the constable, who was also injured, was out of danger.Esther Tremblay said investigators left the scene at about 5:30 a.m. on Thursday and the investigation was ongoing.In Quebec City, Justice Minister Stephanie Vallee said that as a mother and a lawyer, she was “profoundly touched” by the news of the shooting.Vallee, who has practised law in the region, said there are occasional outbursts at the Maniwaki courthouse but never anything of the magnitude of Wednesday’s incident.“Sometimes, like in many courthouses, there are emotions that overflow,” she said following a caucus meeting. “But something like that has never happened there.”last_img read more

Toy Tuesday The Best Rock Roll Toys

Posted On Sep 19 2019 by

first_imgStay on target Toy Tuesday: The Best ‘South Park’ ToysThe New Lego UCS Imperial Star Destroyer Is Nearly Four Feet Long Rock and roll music has always been part of geek culture, from the pioneering sci-fi magazine Heavy Metal and its attendant animated series to the soundtracks of some of our favorite cartoons and anime series. And many rockers are serious geeks as well. So here’s a roundup of action figures and other toys inspired by some of our favorite popular musicians. Put together a plastic band with these eleven awesome rock & roll toys.MEGO KISS Gene SimmonsMEGO, once known for their goony superhero figures that wore real cloth outfits, has been undergoing a bit of a resurgence in recent years as legendary toy designer Marty Abrams has relaunched the brand as a deliberately retro enterprise. They’ve done figures of sitcom characters like Greg Brady and the Fonz, old-school Batman TV figures, and now they’re in the rock & roll world with the members of KISS. All the figures are great, but we’ve got to give recognition to the Demon, bass-playing tongue-waggler Gene Simmons. 14 points of articulation let you recreate the whole KISS Alive experience on your toy shelf.Get it at Amazon.comMisfits The Fiend FigureLodi, New Jersey’s favorite son Glenn Danzig’s Misfits were one of the ballsiest bands of their era, knocking out meaty punk-metal jams about monsters, murder and misery. Their band mascot was the Fiend, a skull-faced wraith cribbed from 1946 film serial The Crimson Ghost, and since his appearance on the Horror Business single he’s been inextricably linked to the group. Super7 did a line of Reaction figures based on punk and metal groups, and there are a bunch of Fiend colorways but the basic black is our favorite.Get it at Amazon.comIron Maiden Somewhere In Time FigureIron Maiden’s skeletal mascot Eddie might be the most toyetic figure in all of heavy metal. On album cover after album cover, he’s re-interpreted in dozens of different badass ways. Notorious action figure maker NECA did a bunch of different versions of the ghoul, but our favorite replicates his quasi-cyborg appearance from the album art of 1986’s Somewhere In Time. Standing a whopping eighteen inches tall, Eddie comes with a pair of pistols that fit into their holsters and are connected to his body with flexible wires. Plenty of articulation points are here, and it’ll look great in your collection.Get it at Amazon.comNECA Weird Al Yankovic Action FigureIf you’re going to name a single musician who is universally loved by geeks, “Weird Al” Yankovic is the first name that comes to mind. The poodle-haired parodist has been kicking out nerdy takes on the latest hits for over 40 years, and he shows no signs of slowing down. His 1989 film starring debut UHF is an all-time classic, and this deluxe figure from NECA captures his late 80s look astonishingly, but also comes with an alternate head to mimic his modern look. An accordion and microphone stand round out the package.Get it at Amazon.comJohnny Cash FigureBased on a classic photograph of the Man in Black from 1969, this 7-inch figure depicts the legendary country singer in his iconic raven-hued uniform, his guitar strapped to his back as he walks down a desolate railway line. Cash was a musician who you could easily ascribe supernatural powers to, and this figure just looks like something out of the American monomyth. Not a lot of articulation on this one, just the shoulders, but it’s not like Cash was known to get down and boogie anyways.Get it at Amazon.comTamashii Nations Daft Punk FigureBandai’s Tamashii Nations line typically gives us figures from major geek media franchises like the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But the two guys in Daft Punk, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, look like they could be background extras in Guardians of the Galaxy anyways, so they fit right in. The TN Bangalter figure depicts him in his trademark chrome helmet, with a shiny metallic finish and transparent areas. Seven interchangeable hands and multiple joints allow you to put him in just about any performance pose you might desire.Get it at Amazon.comPublic Enemy Vinyl Figure SetYes, hip-hop isn’t technically rock and roll, but you know what? It’s all descended from the old African-American rhythm and blues anyways. And you can’t talk hip-hop without mentioning Public Enemy, the pioneering Long Island group that raided the airwaves with aggressive samples and powerful lyrics. This dope four-piece collectors vinyl figure set from Presspop was designed by cartoonist Ed Piskor and sculpted by Tomohiro Yasui, and you get the core of the original lineup: Chuck D, Flavor Flav, Professor Griff, and Terminator X.Get it at Amazon.comMecha Elvis SofubiWe’ve got a pretty solid collection of Japanese sofubi figures — the solid, dense vinyl toys probably best known in the States for mid-80s WWF wrestlers – but we’ve never seen one as wild as this. Mecha Elvis is a collab between manufacturers Medicom and alternative band CyberNewNew, who defy description on a good day. Sculpted by Abe Toru, the figure depicts the lead singer and guitarist of the group, Mecha Elvis, who is exactly what he sounds like: Memphis’s favorite son with a few extra mechanical parts attached. Incredible.Get it at Amazon.comDropMixWe’ve sung the praises of Harmonix and Hasbro’s oddball remix game / toy / instrument DropMix before, but there’s really no reason for you not to buy one now that the price has dropped down to less than half of retail. If you’re not familiar, it’s a near field communication-reading base that responds to cards laid down on it, each of which represents a particular instrumental or vocal track from one of dozens of songs. You can layer them over each other, cut them and create your own mashups and remixes. It won a ton of awards and is definitely worth adding to your gadget cabinet.Get it at Amazon.comRob Zombie Hellbilly Deluxe FigureStanding a whopping foot and a half high, this replica of shock-rocker Rob Zombie from his 1998 solo debut Hellbilly Deluxe will loom over the other toys on this list. Produced by Art Asylum, the detailing on this baby is out of this world. Rob’s dreads feel appropriately scratchy, his cloth outfit is tattered and worn, and the figure’s body has 21 points of articulation. Most amazing, a hidden button causes it to play a 1 minute remixed version of Zombie’s hit song “Dragula.”Get it at Amazon.comTamashii Nations Freddie Mercury Action FigureIt’s pretty cool that Bohemian Rhapsody has introduced a whole new generation to the joys of Queen, the British epic rock band that embraced geekery in numerous ways, from sci-fi tinged songs and a whole soundtrack to the Flash Gordon movie on to guitarist Brian May becoming an astrophysicist. Lead singer Freddie Mercury was one of the most charismatic and dynamic frontmen in rock and roll history, and Bandai’s Tamashii Nations replica of him is astonishingly true to life, with six interchangeable hands, two faces, microphone and stand.Get it at Amazon.comMore on Geek.com:The Most Astronomical Spaceship ToysThe Best Overwatch ToysThe Best Avengers Toyslast_img read more

Prosecutors say dispute over stolen guns prompted homicide

Posted On Sep 16 2019 by

first_imgDaniel Gentile, who identified himself as a friend of murder suspect Kirk Michael Hernandez Sr., talks to the media outside a Clark County Superior courtroom on Monday. Gentile describes Hernandez as “a nice guy.” An Oct. 1 homicide in Hazel Dell apparently was prompted by a dispute over some stolen guns, according to court documents.Two Vancouver men made their first appearances Monday morning in Clark County Superior Court in connection with the killing of Matthew Clark.Judge Barbara Johnson set bail at $1 million each for Kirk M. Hernandez Sr., 42, and Darrell C. Fry, 33, and appointed attorneys Tom Phelan and Bob Yoseph to represent them, respectively.Hernandez and Fry were arrested Saturday on suspicion of first-degree murder and first-degree burglary.According to court documents, Hernandez previously had stolen five firearms and a police badge from the home of a retired sheriff’s deputy who lives in Battle Ground.“Kirk Hernandez Sr. said he later took five of the stolen firearms from that burglary to Matt “Splat” Clark’s house, and said Matt ended up stealing these instead of selling them for Kirk,” according to the affidavit.At around 6 a.m. Monday, Oct. 1, the two defendants allegedly went to Clark’s home at 9610 N.E. 25th Ave. to settle the debt. They were armed.After Hernandez and Fry entered the home, they said, Clark attacked Hernandez, knocking him to the ground.“Kirk said somehow his revolver came out of his pocket and, as he and Matt struggled for the revolver, it went off two or three times,” according to a probable cause affidavit filed by Clark County sheriff’s Detective Kevin Harper.last_img read more

Frances Hollande focuses on euro crisis

Posted On Aug 18 2019 by

first_img“Time and again, there will be a setback somewhere and there will be debates _ but at the end we will manage to preserve the euro as the European currency,” he said.Hollande has never held a ministerial post and is largely an unknown outside France. Even inside the country, many are wondering what kind of leader he will be _ especially since he is now regarded as a key figure in the move to ease Europe from its strict austerity path.But for all his campaign promises, Hollande was seen in the past as a moderate within France’s Socialist camp, a pragmatist who seeks consensus and supports European unity.Wednesday marked Sarkozy’s last cabinet meeting, which ministers described as emotional. The government will formally resign on Thursday.___Sarah DiLorenzo in Paris and Geir Moulson in Berlin contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Top Stories Associated PressPARIS (AP) – French President-elect Francois Hollande didn’t wait to take office to press his agenda for digging Europe out of economic crisis: He met Wednesday with the European Union president and presented his case for joint European bonds and government stimulus to boost growth.Powerhouse Germany isn’t fond of either idea, at least not now, and wants other European governments to tighten their budgets first. Comments   Share   More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Van Rompuy, as he left Hollande’s campaign headquarters, said he was “totally” satisfied with the meeting. He didn’t elaborate.Under President Nicolas Sarkozy, France took a leading role with Merkel on finding a solution to the continent’s debt crisis. Many are wondering now how the relationship between the two neighbors will change under Hollande.Hollande already made waves during the campaign by declaring that he wanted to renegotiate a bedrock of the continent’s response to the crisis _ a fiscal compact meant to limit overspending. Hollande says the agreement has to also address promoting growth.It’s unclear at this stage whether Hollande would settle for an annex to the pact or wants to overhaul the whole thing, which has already been signed by 25 countries including France.A senior German lawmaker said Wednesday he doesn’t expect a full renegotiation, and that he sees room for agreement with Hollande on his desire to foster growth.“I think there is room for a … German-French consensus,” Peter Altmaier, the chief parliamentary whip of Merkel’s conservative party, told reporters.But given that most European countries regularly need to borrow on the markets, he warned, “we don’t have unlimited time.” New high school in Mesa lets students pick career pathscenter_img That has prompted concerns about the Franco-German relationship that has underpinned European cooperation for decades _ concerns that a senior adviser to the Socialist Hollande and a senior lawmaker in German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative party both sought to downplay Wednesday.France’s election of Hollande on Sunday “will be a factor of unity in Europe,” Hollande adviser Pierre Moscovici said.He noted that one of Hollande’s first meetings this week _ even before he is inaugurated May 15 _ was with EU President Herman Van Rompuy on Wednesday.Hollande will meet Thursday with Jean-Claude Juncker, the Luxembourg prime minister who also chairs meetings of the eurozone’s 17 finance ministers.And Hollande will make his first foreign trip after taking office to Berlin, to see Merkel.Even European leaders who don’t share space with Hollande on the left of the political spectrum “are showing a great availability to debate with Mr. Hollande on the growth agenda,” Moscovici said.Hollande and Van Rompuy discussed the Frenchman’s plan to send a letter to other European leaders laying out his proposals for joint European bonds, government-sponsored investment and a financial transaction tax, Moscovici said. 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 Top holiday drink recipes Arizona families, Arizona farms: working to produce high-quality milk Sponsored Stories Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, familylast_img read more

But if not, Campbell should have no shortage of suitors.“I’m sure it’s not just Denver,” Clayton concluded. “There’s going to be other teams.” 0 Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “I think he’s going to be a hot item, particularly if some of the top players are all going to be franchised — particularly the top defensive players,” Clayton said. “Because if you look at it, he would clearly be the best 3-4 defensive end, and if there are some casualties as far as people leaving in Denver, I could see Denver going after him; I could see other teams going after him.“I think he’s a valuable player.”Clayton went on to say he believes the Broncos offer the best fit for the 6-foot-8, 300-pound player who is coming off an eight-sack season and has been to two Pro Bowls. He is not the first person to link Campbell to the Mile High City, as last month Denver Post columnist Mark Kiszla said John Elway and his club should look into Campbell if they move on from DeMarcus Ware.A second-round pick out of Miami in 2008, Campbell has been a mainstay along Arizona’s defensive line since his second year in the league. He holds a team record for seasons with at least six sacks, which is at seven, and his 56.5 career sacks rank second on the franchise’s all-time list behind Freddie Joe Nunn, who tallied 66.If Campbell is to reach the top of the list he and the Cardinals will need to come to some sort of an agreement over the next couple of months. Wit the franchise tag likely reserved for Chandler Jones — if anyone at all — it would seem the only chance the sides have is if they can work out a multi-year deal.

first_imgFormer chairman of now defunct Laiki bank Constantinos Mylonas was never prosecuted due to his old age, lead investigator Marcos Nicolettis told Nicosia criminal court on Wednesday as the trial into market manipulation by four of Laiki’s top brass continued.Defendants in the trial are Laiki’s then-managing director Efthimios Bouloutas, his deputy Panayiotis Kounnis, non-executive vice-president Neoclis Lysandrou and executive board member Marcos Foros.They are facing charges of market manipulation and submitting false or misleading information with regard to publishing an interim financial report in November 2011, in which they omitted to include a goodwill writedown of €330 million for Marfin Popular Bank’s – as Laiki was then known – operations in Greece.Testifying as a prosecution witness, senior officer Nicolettis said Mylonas was “a proper and extremely polite elderly man” who was 85 years old when he gave statements to police in October 2015.Painting a picture of a frail man, Nicolettis said the former chairman had accidentally spilled coffee over some documents while giving a statement and accidentally scratched his car as he was leaving the premises.Nicolettis agreed with the defence counsel that due to the nature of the case, there was a need for specialist knowledge over accounting matters but said he lacked them.He told court that based on all the witness material they had collected, there was no reason to call for more statements or prosecute other individuals, denying this was part of a ‘plan’ to avoid looking into what really happened during a meeting of the board on November 29 in 2011 so as to let former deputy CEO of laiki Christos Styliandes off the hook and use him as a prosecution witness.Responding to questions put to him by the defence, Nicolettis said he did not follow a judicial route to obtain a statement from Bouloutas and Foros as when that procedure had been followed in another case concerning the two suspects, there was a huge delay in the investigation.To that end, he spoke to them on the phone and the two sent their views in writing. A decision to prosecute them was taken without their statements, Nicolettis added.Bouloutas was the number one suspect due to his position at the bank, the lead investigator told the court, denying police had not taken statements from the two because of a “pre-determined decision to charge them”.The case will resume on January 29 and 30 at 9am.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.
