(Missouri) Trucking Company Discriminates Against Female Drivers

A Missouri based trucking company is making headlines for discrimination against its female drivers. A federal judge found a pattern going on related to the discrimination against the female truck drivers of this company. The judge ruled that the Springfield-based New Prime Inc. had been in violation of a federal law by requiring its female drivers to only be trained by other female drivers.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission sued New Prime over the practice a few years earlier, alleging that their policy limited women’s access to jobs or delayed their hiring. The company tried to have the case dismissed by suspending the women training women policy that the company enforced in 2003.

The commission is still determining the damages and remedies for the women of this company that have been involved in this case.

(Michigan) Detroit Police No Longer Under Federal Oversight

For over a decade now the Detroit Police Department has been operating under a federal oversight. A judge has now decided to end the federal monitor due to a request from the city and the U.S. Department of Justice.

In 2003, Detroit entered into two consent judgments after police had been accused of abusing power. Some incidents include officers being accused of using excessive force, illegal detentions and unconstitutional conditions of confinement.

However, many still argue that the oversight did nothing and that the force in the department has not changed.

(St.Louis) ACLU Files Lawsuit Against St.Louis County

A lawsuit has been filed by The American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri against St. Louis County and the county police department to obtain details on the shooting of Michael Brown. In the lawsuit the advocacy group said they received an inadequate response to its original records request. In the lawsuit they alleged that the county’s failure to produce an incident report “is a purposeful, or, in the alternate, knowing violation of the Sunshine Law.”

The St. Louis County Police Department responded to the ACLU’s request with a note stating that the report wasn’t going to be released because the investigation is ongoing. At the request of the Ferguson Police Department, the investigation has now been turned over to the county.

The lawsuit states that the ACLU wants the court to declare that the incident report is an open record and also to enter an injunction forcing the county to release the document. Along with that, the group is asking for the court to impose a civil penalty against the county for violating the Sunshine Law and to order the county to pay the ACLU’s legal fees.

This marks the second time this summer that the ACLU of Missouri has sued the county over alleged Sunshine Law violations.

(Chicago) Lawsuit Filed Against Illinois State Police

Last year the state of Illinois passed a controversial concealed carry weapons permit that has left African American applicants with a clean record confused as to why they were denied. This has caused an uproar in the state and now a lawsuit.

It all started when former Air Force reservist Michael Thomas, who happens to be African American, went to apply and was turned down. He wrote a letter to the state police asking for a review of the decision, he has never had a run in with the law and he routinely carried a gun during military service. He received a letter back stating that the board’s decision could not be reviewed and that he would have to petition a court in order to appeal.

So Thomas, along with 193 other residents in Illinois, filed a lawsuit against the state police. Lawyers that are involved in the case say “There are law abiding citizens in the state of Illinois who are fully eligible to carry, and they are denied the right and not given any notice as to why.” Attorney David Thomas stats that “We want a process established that gives people notice of what evidence the state used to make the determination and an opportunity to rebut by putting in their own evidence.”

Fatal Car Crash Kills Relatives of Pope Francis

A fatal car crash left one relative of Pope Francis in critical condition while killing three other relatives. The car crash happened Tuesday on a provincial highway in Argentina, the Vatican and a local police official said. The small car carrying a nephew of the pope along with his wife and two young children slammed into the back of a truck, said Highway Police Superintendent Jorge Raineri. The crash killed the wife and children, one 2 years old and the other 8 months. The small car smashed and crumpled beneath the cargo truck.

Emanuel Bergoglio, the 38-year-old son of a brother of Pope Francis, was hospitalized. He suffered extensive injuries and his condition was not considered stable, said Ignacio Bruno, an assistant director of the hospital in the town of Villa Maria.

The man’s 36-year-old wife, Valeria Carmona, and two children, Jose and Antonio, died before reaching the hospital, Bruno said. Apparently the family was returning to Buenos Aires following a holiday weekend when the accident occurred between the cities of Rosario and Cordoba. The driver of the truck was not injured.

Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi said “the pope was informed about the tragic accident. He is deeply pained.” He added the pope asks “all who share in his grief to unite with him in prayer.”

(Michigan) Detroit Police Chief Says Detroit Is Not The Next Ferguson

Detroit Police Chief James Craig said on Monday that Detroit has better police-community relations than Ferguson, Missouri and that comparisons shouldn’t be made between instances tensions here and widespread unrest there. Craig made the comments during a press conference outside a vandalized building on the city’s west side, where five graffiti writers were chased and arrested last week.

A crowd of residents gathered and cheered police as they announced charges against the suspected vandals. “You have community members standing here with the police today,” said Craig, pointing to the crowd. “This is the Detroit Police Department and community relationship. We have community police officers… I’m not going to let the media take this thing and spin it to suggest we’re on the brink of civil unrest.”

This whole conversation started because of Missouri’s governor calling the National Guard on Monday for assistance dealing with the protests from Michael Brown. Craig says “That tells me that there’s been no relationship with the community,” He goes on to say “The underlying issues, there’s no relationship between the police department and that community.”

Detroit police last week faced tension on the city’s east side after a passenger in a car was shot while the driver allegedly tried to run over an officer. Both men in the vehicle were suspects in an alleged illegal gun transaction. A crowd gathered after the non-fatal shooting, some yelling at police, and one man crossed caution tape that surrounded the scene and was pepper-sprayed. Additional police units had to be called to calm the situation. But Craig said the majority of the crowd was supportive of police action in the neighborhood.

The Detroit Coalition against Police Brutality on Monday called for a judge to reject a proposed end to federal oversight of the Detroit Police Department.”As we look at the potential for citizen-police confrontation, this is no time to back away from Federal oversight,” said the group’s spokesman Ron Scott. Craig said he’s repeatedly invited Scott to meet with him and present specific grievances and that an invitation stands for him to join an external advisory committee.

Craig added to his speech saying “Detroit is not the next Ferguson”.

(Michigan) Man Spreads Ex’s Nude Photo On Facebook, Says Lawyer Gave Him OK To Do So

A Bay City man persistently harassed his ex-girlfriend via the Internet, posting nude photos of her on Facebook in an attempt to drive her to commit suicide. The afternoon of Thursday, July 31, a woman visited the Bay City police station and spoke with an officer regarding her 34-year-old ex, Chad A. Monroe, harassing her. The woman said she had his phone number blocked, but he kept calling and sending her text messages and messages on Facebook, court records show.

The woman told police that Monroe had told her he would make her life miserable until she killed herself. He also posted nude photos of her on Facebook and labeled her a whore, she said. Facebook removed the photos, but she tells police that people had saved them. The woman said Monroe threatened to keep posting the photos until he gets some of his property back from her, court records show.

The woman had filed a personal protection order against Monroe on July 22, but she told police it hadn’t been served to him yet. In response, court records show Monroe sent her a Facebook message saying the PPO wouldn’t work as it was just a piece of paper. The woman’s mother accompanied her to the station and gave police a similar account, saying Monroe was also messaging her nude photos of her daughter and saying he’d destroy her daughter until she commits suicide.

Police told Monroe to stop contacting his ex, but he said there was nothing they could do to him without the PPO having been served. “I know about the PPO, but it’s all bull(expletive) and you won’t find me to serve me,” Monroe told the police. “I talked with my lawyer and he said I can put naked pictures of her on the Internet and I am going to keep doing it until she gives me my (expletive) back. There’s nothing you can do about it. I am staying up in Pinconning with my crazy aunt and she will shoot anyone who comes onto her property.”

The prosecution disagreed with the advice Monroe’s lawyer reportedly gave him about the legality of posting nude photos of his ex, as they issued a warrant for him on Tuesday, Aug. 12. Monroe did not name his lawyer in his conversation with police.

The next day, Monroe was arraigned in Bay County District Court on single counts of stalking, a one-year misdemeanor, and unlawful posting of a message on the Internet, a two-year felony. Court documents pertaining to the case contain dozens of pages of copied text and Facebook messages sent by Monroe. Monroe’s bond was set at $35,000 cash-surety and he is to have no contact whatsoever with his ex. He is to appear for a preliminary examination before District Judge Dawn A. Klida the morning of August 26th.

(St.Louis) National Guard Called To St.Louis Suburbs

Today Missouri’s governor ordered the National Guard to a St. Louis suburb due to protests over the shooting of an unarmed African American teenager, Michael Brown. The governor ordered the National Guard after police used tear gas to clear protesters off the streets.

Governor Jay Nixon said the National Guard would help “in restoring peace and order” to Ferguson, where protests continue over the shooting of 18 year old Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson, a six-year police veteran who had no previous complaints against him. Police said they acted in response to gunfire, looting, vandalism and protesters who hurled Molotov cocktails. “These violent acts are a disservice to the family of Michael Brown and his memory and to the people of this community who yearn for justice to be served and to feel safe in their own homes,” Nixon said in a statement.

“Based on the conditions, I had no alternative but to elevate the level of response,” said Capt. Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol, who is command in Ferguson. At least two people were wounded in shootings by civilians, he said. Sunday’s clashes in Ferguson happened three hours before the curfew imposed by Nixon. Officers in riot gear ordered all protesters to disperse, but around 100 stood about two blocks away until getting hit by another volley of tear gas.

The latest confrontations came on the same day Attorney General Eric Holder ordered a federal medical examiner to perform another autopsy on Brown, and as a preliminary private autopsy reported by The New York Times found Brown was shot at least six times, including twice in the head.

The extraordinary circumstances surrounding Brown’s death and a request by his family prompted the Justice Department’s decision to conduct a third autopsy, agency spokesman Brian Fallon said in a statement. The examination was to take place as soon as possible, Fallon said.

The protests have been going on since Brown’s death heightened racial tensions between the predominantly black community and the mostly white Ferguson Police Department, leading to several run-ins between police and protesters and prompting Nixon to put the state highway patrol in charge of security.
