Manchester United struggle to clear their minds before Europa League final | Daniel Taylor

It will not be easy for José Mourinho and his players to adopt a ‘business as usual’ approach after Monday’s atrocity, and the mood in Stockholm feels subduedIn happier times it was the Manchester Arena where Sir Alex Ferguson and his players ended up on that sunny day, 18 years ago this week, when they brought the European Cup back to the city for the first time since the 1960s.They reckon there were upwards of 750,000 people to welcome Manchester United back from Barcelona that day. They hung off lamp-posts and balconies and scaffolding and spires, and there has never been another homecoming quite like it on the city’s streets. Continue reading...

Thirteen Reasons Why: America’s High Schools Are Creating (Another) Lost Generation

Interested in precious metals investing or storage? Contact us HERE    Thirteen Reasons Why: America’s High Schools Are Creating (Another) Lost Generation Written by Peter Diekmeyer (CLICK HERE FOR ORIGINAL)       Netflix’s recent announcement that it would be producing a second season of Thirteen Reasons Why has raised new questions about the disastrous state of the US public school system and its effects on the economy. “Hey, it’s Hannah Baker,” says the show’s protagonist, played by a stunning Katherine Langford in the opening episode. “Get settled in. Because I'm about to tell you the story of my life. More specifically, why my life ended.” The Thirteen Reasons’ portrait of how a stifling, bureaucratic system progressively cuts this teenage girl to pieces, eventually driving her to death, provides a dramatized, insightful reflection on (another) emerging lost generation. The statistics are grim: a third of 18- to 34-year-olds in the U.S. live at home according to the US Census Bureau. Homeserve USA finds that nearly one in three Americans can’t come up with $500 to fund an emergency. As if that were not enough, according to the US Congressional Budget Office, governments have saddled today’s young with more than $100 trillion worth of pension and healthcare debts. The harder truth depicted in Thirteen Reasons Why is that today’s high school graduates emerge with few skills, little education and a sanitized view of the world. In short, they are totally unprepared to take on the challenges they face. Following are Thirteen Reasons Why: 1. Thirteen years in jail In Thirteen Reasons, Hannah, the bullied protagonist has no way to escape a toxic environment. Her helpless position progressively worsens and eventually drives her to suicide. Because education is compulsory in the United States, Hannah lives in a de facto prison. She cannot change schools or classes without parental approval and undergoing a humiliating bureaucratic process. An education system that prioritized learning would put students at the center, leaving them free to choose their schools, classes, teachers and programs. 2. American kids can’t vote The challenges facing American kids are exacerbated by the fact that they aren’t allowed to vote. They thus have little stake in the system, no sense of responsibility and adopt a de facto poise of helplessness. 3. Students come last None of the dozen studies reviewed for this article assessed the US public education system based on students’ needs. Governments prioritize public education based on its effects on national competitiveness. Businesses focus on getting skilled workers (whose training they don’t want to pay for). Teachers’ unions focus on salaries and working conditions. The upshot is that students’ interests come last. 4. Bloated administrations America spends more per student than any other country yet ranks 14th in terms of results, behind Russia. Must of this is due to legions of highly-paid administrators that clog the system with rules, regulations and forms, few of which prioritize education. 5. Kids taught to worship government; shun individual responsibility The young have always been concerned with social causes. It’s thus hardly surprising that teachers would encourage students to prioritize government’s role in healthcare, welfare and environmental regulation. However today’s public schools offer essentially no counter arguments about individual responsibility. High school graduates thus emerge as easy prey for politicians who claim that near-unlimited government spending and borrowing are the cure for the nation’s problems. (See the Krugman con). 6. Public schools teach no marketable skills The greatest indictment of the public school system’s actual performance relates to the fact that students graduate with no marketable skills. If America’s kids emerged from schools able to read, write, do basic math, type, work as a team and use a half dozen common software packages, they would have something to show for their 13 years in the slammer. 7. Banning Ayn Rand and Huckleberry Finn Socrates’ motto at the Agora was to “question everything.” However public schools prioritize politically correct doctrine that consciously excludes key ideas and concepts. Ayn Rand, the most important philosopher of the 20th century, is essentially banned from the public system, as is Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn, which Hemingway cited as the root of American literature. History teaching in America, as Niall Ferguson has noted, is sanitized to the point of rendering it almost counterproductive. 8. State-directed curricula: one size fits all Students vary as do the communities they live in. However a disproportionate amount of teaching is dictated by bureaucrats. This leaves teachers little flexibility to adjust based on students’ needs. These differ based on whether the school in located in poorer neighborhoods where many students come from single family homes, or in upper middle-class professional communities where traditional family structures are more common. 9. Kids graduate clueless about finances Public schools teach essentially nothing about managing money, likely the single most important life skill a kid could have. Students graduate thus thinking that borrowing is fine. This leaves them prey to America’s biggest predatory lenders: big universities, which have managed to saddle youth with $1.2 trillion worth of debts, many of whom have little to show for it. 10. “Hoop jumper” worship: drives out the talented and curious One of the biggest weaknesses in public and private schools is their collective worship of “hoop jumpers,” - that universal collection of the obsequious sorts that clutter Dean’s lists and other “Top Students” awards. This wouldn’t be a problem if schools were able to correctly identify top performers. However heavy state-defined curricula force teachers to “teach to the test.” This leads to the advancement of drone-like students who are able to recite mindless data, massaged concepts and formulas, and more dangerously: with the need to guess and kow-tow to what teachers want them to say. Worse, in two centuries of public schooling, teachers still fall for that old trap of giving the best marks to kids with nice hand-writing or to math students who get the wrong answer but manage to “show their work.” Students who challenge conventional thinking are smiled at and given a B. The upshot is the students with drive, curiosity and creativity are quickly driven out. The number one students - like John Maynard Keynes, the father of modern economics, who taught that the best way to get rich was to spend more than you earn - rocket through the system, and now run the nation’s central banks and university economics departments. You get the picture. 11. Powerful unions In a world in which students are stuck in de facto prisons, teachers, who spend more time with them than their parents do, ought to be their biggest backers. They aren’t. Teachers thus need to accept the lion’s share of the blame for the disastrous state of American schools. That blame starts with the fact that teachers’ first priority has been to band into powerful unions, which put salaries, benefits and vacation time first and students’ interests last. 12. Millionaire teachers True, teachers perform one of society’s most useful functions. However during a time of strained public finances students’ needs must come first - not teachers’ salaries. The teachers’ unions have been hugely successful. Median compensation for US workers is $28,900. Teachers earn $58,000, almost double that amount. The gap between teachers and those communities they teach in is exacerbated by the fact that gold-plated, state-guaranteed pensions mean that public school teachers generally retire as millionaires. If teachers were paid at market rates, there would be more money available to fund students’ needs such as smaller class sizes, libraries and computers. 13. Mediocre teachers that can’t be fired Teachers begin their careers ranked among most socially-committed of any professionals. But as with any human beings, a change takes hold of teachers once they acquire tenure and can no longer be fired. Office hours and volunteer activities shrink, emails from students and parents are returned slower, if at all. The upshot is that many of the best teachers decline towards mediocrity as their careers advance. ***** The takeaway for the alternative investors, who wonder how the American public could so easily fall for politicians, economists and central bankers that are running US productivity into the ground, the answer is clear. America’s public schools may be leaving their graduates incapable of assessing the stakes.   Questions or comments about this article?

Football transfer rumours: Everton to land £25m Gylfi Sigurdsson?

Today’s rumours struggle to find the wordsDavid Moyes is to play a part in sourcing his successor at Sunderland. It’s the sort of plan that worked so well a few years ago at Manchester United, isn’t it. Names on his list include Ryan Giggs, Nigel Pearson, David Wagner, Alan Pardew, Garry Monk, Aitor Karanka, Slavisa Jokanovic and Paul Lambert. Perhaps Moyes should also consider Sir Alex Ferguson for a job that’s guaranteed to be a world of pain for whoever stupidly agrees to take it, just to see how he likes it.Meanwhile sprinting out of the Stadium of Light door, as though chasing a ball lumped straight down the middle because his team-mates have no other ideas left: Jermain Defoe. He’s making a break for it, in double-quick time, in the hope of getting as far away from the mess as possible. Bournemouth, 343 miles south, fits the bill perfectly. Continue reading...

David Moyes needs to rediscover his fire after falling short at Sunderland

From the ‘chosen one’ at Manchester United to relegation and resignation at Sunderland the Scot needs to halt his downward trajectoryDavid Moyes saw it as the high-point of his managerial career when chosen to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United by the man himself. He could never have imagined it would be the turning point, or that a reputation built so carefully could unravel so quickly.Since swapping the comforts of Everton for a six-year contract at Old Trafford in May 2013, departing Goodison Park to a standing ovation no less, Moyes has been sacked by two clubs and resigned from the one with whom he suffered the first relegation of his career. It may reflect well on the 54-year-old that he has left Sunderland without compensation for the final three years of his contract, but it reflects a truly dismal spell at the Stadium of Light that the clean break will be a mere footnote in Moyes’s time at the club. A Football Association charge for threatening to slap BBC Newcastle and Radio Five Live reporter Vicki Sparks, six wins in 38 Premier League games and pandering to John Terry’s ego at Chelsea on the final day of the season will be more defining memories for the Sunderland support.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson Is Marking His Wedding Anniversary In A Stylish, Charitable Way

Four years after his own wedding, Jesse Tyler Ferguson is once again in a matrimonial state of mind.  On Tuesday, the “Modern Family” star unveiled a line of six, limited edition bow tie designs inspired by his 2013 wedding. Sales of the ties, which are available exclusively at The Tie Bar, will benefit Tie The Knot, an advocacy organization founded by Ferguson and his husband, Justin Mikita, in 2012. For every $25 tie sold, $20 will be given to the couple’s non-profit, which supports various groups “that are in the trenches fighting” for LGBTQ equality.   Ferguson and Mikita have previously designed other bow ties, including a special Pride-themed tie, as part of their charitable work for Tie The Knot. The new line, Ferguson said, is symbolic of both the couple’s fourth wedding anniversary and the fifth anniversary of their organization.  “We took inspiration from different colors, fabrics, and textiles we had at our own wedding and then colorized them with what was trending in the wedding market,” Ferguson, who wed Mikita in an intimate New York ceremony on July 20, 2013, told HuffPost. “We always look to what’s happening in our lives for what we’re inspired by. Many of our friends were also getting married this year so it felt like a good time to go back do a wedding collection that incorporated our own taste level.” When the couple founded Tie The Knot in 2012, the organization was almost exclusively focused on marriage equality. Now that same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 states following the Supreme Court’s 2015 ruling, Tie The Knot’s emphasis has shifted to include other queer-relevant issues such as anti-discrimination efforts, Ferguson said.  “I think anyone who feels like we are done after achieving marriage equality is woefully uninformed. There are states in the U.S. where you can be married on a Saturday and fired on a Monday, just because you wed the person you love,” he said. “There is still a lot of work to be done to protect the long-term well-being of the LGBTQ community.”  The 41-year-old, who nabbed a Drama Desk Award last year for his performance in Broadway’s “Fully Committed,” said he’s received some criticism on Twitter for sharing his political views. Ultimately, he explained, that type of pushback doesn’t concern him.   “I’m part of the LGBTQ community and I have experienced suppression as a gay man firsthand. I’m grateful to have come out on the other end happy and healthy,” he told HuffPost. “I want that for all my LGBTQ brothers and sisters... Democracy survives because we all care about the state of our nation. Republicans, Democrats... everyone.”    For the latest in LGBTQ news, check out the Queer Voices newsletter.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Cops In This City Haven't Killed Anyone Since 2015. Here's One Reason Why.

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); The Salt Lake City Police Department has gone more than a year and a half since its last fatal officer-involved shooting. Twenty months without a death. Across the country, police officers have shot and killed at least 367 people so far this year, according to a Washington Post tally. That’s a slighter deadlier pace than the previous two years, despite the national debate over police reform sparked by the 2014 killing of Michael Brown. But officials in Salt Lake City have done more than talk, according to a heartening report on KSTU this week. In Utah’s capital, police have actively embraced a tactic called de-escalation. The officers being trained in de-escalation are encouraged to communicate and empathize with suspects, take stock of the factors contributing to a confrontation, and consider ways to disengage before the situation spirals out of control, leading to the use of force. With this policy in place, there hasn’t been a fatal encounter between officer and civilian in Salt Lake City since September 2015. That case involved a home intruder who had just stabbed a woman. The officer’s actions were found to be justified. In 37 instances since June 2016, officers have managed to de-escalate situations in which they might otherwise have been justified in using lethal force, Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown told KSTU. To emphasize the importance of this approach, officers in those incidents have been given the department’s new de-escalation award. “The Salt Lake City Police Department is probably one of the leading agencies in the country as far as how we train and deploy and use these tactics to de-escalate and save lives,” Brown said. In one such incident, captured in a body camera video, an officer confronts a knife-wielding suspect following a traffic stop. As the man advances, the officer backs up, using his cruiser as cover ― “giving ground” in police terminology. This gives the cop time to regroup and draw his Taser. He then stuns the suspect and disarms him, before pulling out the handcuffs. “I think he saved a life,” said Brown. Watch the KSTU report here. To be fair, the greater use of de-escalation tactics is likely not the only reason for the low number of police-involved shootings, Detective Greg Wilking, a public information officer for the police department, told HuffPost. “We don’t have some of the problems that some of the major cities and metropolitan areas have,” Wilking said. “It’s a fairly calm place to be a police officer.” Plus, the city’s population is less than 200,000 and it has experienced fairly low levels of crime compared with other cities of similar size. Of course, no one can promise there’ll never be another police-involved killing. Controversial shootings over the past few years swept Salt Lake City police into the broader debate around reform. In an August 2014 incident that received nationwide coverage, an officer fatally shot Dillon Taylor, an unarmed 20-year-old, just days after the Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri. In January 2015, an officer shot and killed James Barker, 42, who was armed with nothing more than a snow shovel, which he’d used to strike the officer. In February 2016, the department again drew citywide criticism ― and at least one protest that turned violent ― when an officer shot Abdi Mohamed, then 17, leaving him paralyzed. Mohamed was a suspect in an assault and was reportedly armed with a metal mop handle at the time he was shot. All three incidents of gunfire were ultimately deemed to have been justified, and Wilking suggested that appropriate efforts to de-escalate would not have changed the outcomes in those cases. But with each shooting came renewed calls from activists and community members demanding change. In the wake of the Mohamed shooting, Chief Brown told the city council that his officers were spending nearly a quarter of their training time learning various de-escalation techniques. That remains true today, said Wilking. “We’ve spoken with and listened to members of the community and we’ve looked into other types of training that the community has felt would be beneficial,” he added. De-escalation is not a new concept in law enforcement, and Salt Lake City officers aren’t the only ones trained in its use. Wilking said many other police departments have also been working to revamp their policies, even if those efforts don’t get recognized. “You often hear about when a shooting incident happens, but you don’t hear about all the times someone doesn’t get shot,” he said. Since the rate of shootings nationwide hasn’t decreased, however, it appears that police departments will remain under the microscope. A significant number of these incidents, which have taken a disproportionate toll on communities of color, have involved civilians who weren’t carrying weapons. In other instances, officers have fatally shot suspects who were armed, but who seemingly did not pose an immediate threat to others. Law enforcement experts have begun endorsing de-escalation as a potential way to reduce the violence. In January, a coalition of national police organizations added these sorts of tactics to its model policy, stressing the need for law enforcement “to value and preserve human life.” But some police departments have been slow to de-emphasize the use of lethal force, with officials expressing concern that doing so could place cops in danger. In Chicago, for example, the department recently adopted a new use-of-force policy that says officers have to try de-escalation only “when it is safe and feasible to do so.” Although Chicago officers have been receiving mandatory de-escalation training over the past year, the new language softened a previous draft that had called for officers to use the least amount of force necessary. With due respect for the differences between departments, Wilking suggested that some might be able to learn from Salt Lake City’s example. “Police work is ever evolving,” he said. “We’ve gotta continue to learn from our mistakes. If we don’t, we’re losing the battle. You can’t ever say that you’ve got it right and you’re always gonna do it right. You gotta keep looking at yourself in the mirror and say, ‘What can I do better?’” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Sheriff David Clarke, Who Runs Jail Where 4 People Died, Says He's Going To Work For DHS

WASHINGTON ― President Donald Trump’s administration will appoint Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke ― a Fox News talking head with extreme rhetoric on law enforcement ― to a job in the Department of Homeland Security, Clarke said Wednesday. The sheriff has recently come under scrutiny because four people, including a newborn, died in less than a year inside the jail he’s charged with running. Clarke told 1130 WISN Radio that he will serve as an assistant secretary in the DHS’s Office of Partnership and Engagement and will work as a liaison between law enforcement and state and local governments. That job does not require a Senate confirmation. DHS has not yet announced or confirmed the appointment. Clarke became a regular presence on Fox News after the 2014 shooting death of Michael Brown led to unrest in Ferguson, Missouri. He has particularly taken issue with the Black Live Matter movement: He has branded it a terrorist and anarchist campaign; suggested it be labeled a hate group; referred to it as an “enemy” that is “at war with America”; claimed its members would join with ISIS; and given it the nickname “Black Lies Matter.” He has also said that African-Americans sell drugs “because they’re uneducated, they’re lazy, and they’re morally bankrupt.” Clarke, a longtime Trump supporter, said during the campaign that it was time to bring out “pitchforks and torches” against the media, the Obama White House and Congress. He was given a key speaking role at the Republican National Convention last summer, where he was a crowd favorite. Before long, Black Lies Matter will join forces with ISIS to being down our legal constituted republic. You heard it first here.— David A. Clarke, Jr. (@SheriffClarke) October 28, 2015 As Clarke has risen to fame ― he accepted more than $150,000 in speaking fees, travel reimbursements and gifts in 2015 ― inmates in the jail he’s supposed to be running have been dying preventable deaths. The death rate at the facility in 2016 was roughly three times the national average. One newborn baby delivered “unbeknownst to the staff” died shortly after being born to a mentally ill woman. Earlier this month, jurors recommended charges against several of Clarke’s employees after a mentally ill man died of dehydration a week after officials cut off water to his cell. Clarke has largely ignored press inquiries about the deaths in the facility, but has put the blame on inmates and reportedly threatened a Milwaukee County medical examiner for releasing information about deaths at the facility. Clarke said during his radio interview that part of his job would be to “take complaints of shortcomings in the Department of Homeland Security” from local law enforcement. He said Secretary John Kelly would give him the appointment, and that he’d join DHS in June. “They feel like they’re being ignored,” he said. A spokesman for Clarke did not immediately respond to a request for comment. A spokeswoman for DHS declined to confirm the reports, but she also didn’t deny them. “The position mentioned is a secretarial appointment,” DHS spokeswoman Jenny Burke said in an email. “Such senior positions are announced by the department when made official by the Secretary. No such announcement with regard to the Office of Public Engagement has been made.” Trump’s DHS is attempting to bring more local law enforcement offices on board with deportation efforts, both through a program that gives police further immigration authority and by pushing jurisdictions to abandon so-called “sanctuary city” policies that often prohibit them from holding people without a warrant based on federal government requests. Clarke is unlikely to be an ally to those local law enforcement and elected officials ― he supports Trump’s deportation crackdown and has said jurisdictions should lose their grants if they don’t comply with voluntary requests.   @JudgeJeanine Absolutely not. Withhold federal funding for cities that do not work with ICE on illegals.— David A. Clarke, Jr. (@SheriffClarke) July 11, 2015 Clarke’s home city of Milwaukee may be glad to see him leave for Washington. Thousands of protesters marched there earlier this month, speaking out against the sheriff and his support for Trump’s immigration policies. Attendees included Dan Black, a Wisconsin man who filed a harassment complaint against Clarke earlier this year. Black claims Clarke had him detained by deputies at the Milwaukee airport after he shook his head at Clarke on a flight home. Clarke responded to Black’s allegations by calling him a “snowflake.” “If Sheriff Clarke were to really mess with you, you wouldn’t be around to whine about it,” read a post by the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page.  Erik Heipt, an attorney working for the family of the mentally ill man who died of dehydration, told HuffPost that he found the news “astonishing.” “It’s hard to believe that Sheriff Clarke was unaware of his own jail’s unconstitutional practice of shutting off drinking water as a twisted form of punishment,” Heipt said. “If he authorized or ordered this deplorable practice, he too could face felony criminal charges. And he will undoubtedly be a defendant in our federal civil rights case.” “He has time to blog, tweet, and write op-eds to advance his divisive agenda. Yet, while he’s been doing all of this self-promoting, his own jail has been grossly mismanaged,” he said. “Hiring Sheriff Clarke for a leadership position in the Department of Homeland Security is a slap in the face to the family and friends of Terrill Thomas. And to place him in a role in which he will serve as a liaison with state and local law enforcement adds insult to the injury.” Nick Wing contributed reporting.  This article has been updated with comment from Heipt.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Despite Campaign Boasts, Trump Has No Idea How To Handle Classified Material

He repeatedly went after his Democratic opponent for her use of a private email server as secretary of state, saying she endangered national security and potentially let U.S. secrets get out.  Crooked Hillary Clinton and her team "were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information." Not fit!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 6, 2016 Hillary Clinton should not be given national security briefings in that she is a lose cannon with extraordinarily bad judgement & insticts.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 30, 2016 Lyin' Hillary Clinton told the FBI that she did not know the "C" markings on documents stood for CLASSIFIED. How can this be happening?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 4, 2016 But Trump himself has absolutely no idea how to handle classified information. (And he apparently also doesn’t know that C stands for “confidential.”)   The Washington Post reported Monday that Trump disclosed “highly classified” information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador during a White House meeting last week. The material reportedly came from a source who knows about the inner workings of ISIS and was so sensitive it hadn’t even been shared with U.S. allies and many people within the U.S. government. “Donald Trump still believes someone who gave classified national security secrets to our adversaries is unfit to be President, right?” said Jesse Ferguson, who served as a spokesman for the Clinton campaign. Despite what he said on the campaign trail, Trump has never really seemed to grasp the nuances of foreign policy ― and he often didn’t show much interest. After he won the election, Trump refused to go to the briefings offered by the intelligence community every day, saying he didn’t need them because he was a “smart person.” “You know, I’m, like, a smart person. I don’t have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years. Could be eight years — but eight years. I don’t need that,” Trump said in December.  Officials told The Washington Post that, even though the National Security Council still prepares detailed, multi-page briefings for Trump to deal with foreign leaders, “he has insisted that the guidance be distilled to a single page of bullet points — and often ignores those.” “Every day we get closer to testing Trump’s theory about what would happen if he shot a man on Fifth Avenue in broad daylight. To the foreign ally he betrayed, this may already be the equivalent of that,” said Brian Fallon, who was the Clinton campaign press secretary, referring to Trump’s campaign statement that his voters would stick by him no matter what he did. Trump’s advisers also relentlessly attacked Clinton for her use of a private email server.  You know, I’m, like, a smart person. Donald Trump Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser who resigned after lying about his contact with the Russian ambassador before Trump took office, said Clinton should be in jail for what she did.  “You know why we’re saying that [lock her up]? We’re saying that because if I, a guy who knows this business, if I did a tenth, a tenth of what she did, I would be in jail today. So ― so, Crooked Hillary Clinton, leave this race now!” Flynn said in his speech at the Republican National Convention.  Even as president, Trump has continued to rail against leaks coming from within the federal government, arguing that people who reveal classified secrets should go to prison. “Classified. That’s classified,” he said in a recent interview with Time magazine. “You go to prison when you release stuff like that. And who would release that?” Want more updates from Amanda Terkel?

Полиция Фергюсона арестовала священника за участие в акциях протеста

В ночь на 30 сентября группа священнослужителей Фергюсона, штат Миссури, вышла на улицы города, чтобы принять участие в акциях протеста против полицейского произвола. Представители сил правопорядка разогнали собравшихся, арестовав при этом преподобного Осагиефо Секу, которого посчитали организатором митинга. Волнения в городе начались в августе, когда полицейский застрелил безоружного темнокожего юношу Майкла Брауна.
