O.J. Simpson, domestic violence and the injustice system

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this A protest of the attempt by the LAPD to plant evidence during 1994-95 trial.Based on a talk given at a July 27 New York forum.Orenthal James Simpson, aka O.J. Simpson, is set to be paroled from a Nevada prison in early October, after serving nine years of a 33-year prison sentence for armed robbery. His parole hearing was viewed live on July 20 by millions on ESPN, the world’s largest sports channel, and via other major media outlets.Simpson first came to national prominence when he won the Heisman Trophy, which is awarded annually to the best college football player, in 1968. He then became one of the greatest running backs in the history of the National Football League until his retirement in 1979. Simpson also was the main face in TV ads for the Hertz car rental company and acted in films and TV shows.Many think that Simpson’s sentence had less to do with his being found guilty in 2008, for allegedly attempting to confiscate his sold football memorabilia in a Las Vegas hotel room, and more to do with his being found not guilty of the 1994 double murders of his second spouse, Nicole Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman, in Los Angeles.The 1994 courtroom drama involving Simpson was dubbed the “trial of the century.” Simpson’s “dream team” of high-profile lawyers included Johnnie Cochran, F. Lee Bailey, Robert Shapiro and Robert Kardashian.In fact, the Simpson defense was able to show the jurors, a majority Black women, that the Los Angeles Police Department had ample chance to plant evidence including the “bloody glove” — especially the notorious Mark Fuhrman, a white cop caught on tape using the N-word. For more than a year the live televised trial captured the daily attention of millions in the U.S. and worldwide, even before social media via the internet was born.Documentary puts verdict in political contextThis year’s Oscar-winning documentary, “O.J.: Made in America,” took more than seven hours to present the historical and political context of Simpson’s rise to prominence, the killings, the trial, the verdict and the reaction to the verdict. The director, Ezra Edelman, who is African American, showed that Simpson became a major symbol of the racist injustices that Black people as a whole face on a daily basis, especially if, unlike Simpson, they can’t afford the best lawyers money can buy. Many of those incarcerated today have not gone to trial due to being indigent, either unable to make bail or forced to accept plea deals.Edelman also showed that Simpson lacked social consciousness compared to activist athletes like Colin Kaepernick. Simpson put his career ahead of support for the aspirations of Black people facing police brutality, lack of jobs, decent housing and more in Los Angeles. This was not a subjective commentary on Simpson, but a factual presentation.The fact that so many Black people cheered and applauded when Simpson was acquitted on Oct. 3, 1995, was due to the acquittal being viewed as a symbolic victory — a Black man beating a bigoted system — rather than his guilt or innocence in the killings.Edelman stated his film’s goal: “It’s a deeper portrait of a country. It’s the people who have experience being black in America and the indignities that come with that. To see the most famous and entitled person be on trial and to have so many people vested in his acquittal when he’s so not representative of the people, that is the tragedy.” (, March 6)Edelman did a powerful job of raising examples of just how racist the system — courts, laws, police and more — is toward Black people in Los Angeles. Take the tragic murder of Latasha Harlins, a 15-year-old African American, by a Korean grocer in South Central Los Angeles in 1991. The grocer was fined $500 and did no prison time, yet another example of how the courts dehumanize Black life. Many cite this particular killing, along with the acquittal of four white cops who savagely beat Black motorist Rodney King, as a major spark for the Los Angeles rebellion of 1992.The documentary also raises the 1979 Los Angeles police killing of 39-year-old Eula Mae Love, who was shot eight times on her lawn for the “crime” of owing money on her gas bill. The Watts rebellion occurred six years later. There was also the Cointelpro police repression against the Black Panther Party and other Black political activists.So when considering all of these decades of racist abuse not only in Los Angeles but around the country, there can be little wonder why millions of Black people especially rejoiced when O.J. was acquitted.  Before Simpson was arrested and during the trial, Black people carried signs and wore t-shirts not in only Los Angeles but around the country, saying “Free O.J.” and “Fuck the police”.  Whether he committed the killings or not was not the overwhelming sentiment.  It was the fact that a Black man beat a system riddled with racist injustice, especially police terror, a system that has repeatedly gotten away with so many crimes against humanity. The masses saw O.J.’s lawyers using the legal arena to win a political victory and our Party sided with the oppressed masses in the struggle against racism including the racist reaction to the Simpson acquittal.But we know that one political victory doesn’t win the entire war against the capitalist system that maintains control over how people think and their lives in general.Domestic violence & media hypocrisyAnother important issue that this trial and documentary helped to bring to national attention was domestic violence.  There was no doubt that O.J. Simpson abused Nicole Simpson even before they were married.  The physical bruises and 911 calls made by her to the police were made public.  The LA police protected O.J. Simpson from prosecution as they do many abusers of women.  In fact, many police are known abusers themselves.Many major articles and exposes were written during this period on how domestic violence suffered by women at the hand of their spouses and partners was the norm, not the exception throughout U.S. society regardless of nationality, age and social strata.  The role of the corporate media’s main goal is to reinforce the bigoted ideas of the ruling class.  Therefore, in their eyes, the victims and survivors of domestic violence are not all treated the same.  And this is especially true when racism plays an integral role.An Oct. 19, 1995, Workers World article, “Unity is key to fighting racism – Who’s behind the attacks on Simpson jurors” reads in part:  “Racism and national oppression have an impact on every important social and economic issue in this country.  Take violence against women.  Many women are brutalized and even murdered every day. The fact that Nicole Brown Simpson was white and her estranged husband was Black was a big factor. Had she been Black, would the issue of domestic violence have received so much national attention? Neither the courts nor the media showed the same compassion toward Desiree Washington, a Black woman who charged [boxer] Mike Tyson with rape. In fact, she was humiliated by the judge and prosecution.”The article goes on to say, “The same is true in the case of the Framington 8. These are predominantly African American and Latina women in Massachusetts who defended themselves against their abusive batterers. They were sent to prison for years because they were poor, were women and most of them were people of color. The racist and sexist courts consider this three strikes against these heroic individuals who killed or wounded their abusers in self-defense.”There are more recent examples of heroic women who fought back against their abusers and paid the price for doing so by spending years in prison, including being separated from their children. For example, Marissa Alexander, a Black mother stood her ground in Florida against her abusive spouse when she was pregnant.  She was finally freed after a national campaign was launched.Abolish the whole damn systemEven though Simpson was acquitted in 1995 and committed no violations while imprisoned, he will continue to be labeled as a murderer, especially by the corporate media.Once Simpson, who is now 70 years old, is released from prison, he will be tied to parole obligations until Sept. 29, 2022, if there are no violations. He will have to make monthly reports to the Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners.Simpson will be one of 7 million U.S. adults — one in 31 of the population — who are on either parole or probation. This includes 9.2 percent of all Black adults, which is more than four times that of white adults at 2.2 percent. ( O.J. was acquitted in 1995, bourgeois analysts stated that the laws needed to be “reshaped” just as many say today that the capitalist system can be reformed.  As the Workers World Oct. 19, 1995, article stated, “The law does not need to be reshaped.  It needs to be replaced, along with the entire capitalist state because it is an instrument of class oppression, which includes racist oppression, to safeguard the private property of the rich against the masses. The entire criminal justice system, from top to bottom, is itself the crime. It’s not just a question of a few repressive laws here and there.”Monica Moorehead was the 2016 presidential candidate of Workers World Party.last_img read more

A rift in the fellowship of the chamber

first_imgPrint Facebook LimerickNewsA rift in the fellowship of the chamberBy Alan Jacques – September 12, 2020 345 WhatsApp Adam Teskey, Fine Gael. Photo: Cian ReinhardtTHERE was evidence of a major rift between the six councillors of the Adare-Rathkeale Municipal District, who have always prided themselves on working together.Changing the venue for their monthly meeting from their base in Rathkeale to County Hall in Dooradoyle, appears to have been a bridge too far for some with serious cracks in the fellowship between council members being clearly visible.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Before this Tuesday’s meeting commenced, Fine Gael councillor Stephen Keary wanted to know why the meeting had been moved out of the Rathkeale office and if office staff had been consulted about the change of venue.He asked the council executive what they believed the risk was and who posed the risk if the meeting had been held in West Limerick.Cathaoirleach Adam Teskey (FG) refused to discuss the matter with his party colleague.“I’m not going there”, he said,  and refused to engage any further on the matter before the meeting started.Cllr Keary then left the council chamber.Cllr Teskey told council members that an email was sent to all councillors ten days earlier about the change of venue and nobody took issue with the change.”Over the last number of years we’ve had meetings all over the district in places such as Ballyhahill, Ballysteen and Pallaskenry. What’s the issue with having our meeting in the council chamber in Dooradoyle?” he asked.He explained that it was decided to hold the meeting in County Hall as it was a bigger venue, and made it easier for social distancing.Fianna Fáil councillor Kevin Sheahan said he felt the issue was being used for political advantage that the six members  were “not on the same page”.He went onto claim that he had been told by two “honourable” Fine Gael members that one of the six area representatives had alleged the other five members were working in opposition to him.Independent councillor Emmett O’Brien raised concerns over whispers in the municipal district of an “anti-Rathkeale” sentiment from some area representatives. He described it as the spread of “political misinformation” by one member.”I’d dance a jig down the middle of Rathkeale. I’ll go out there anytime,” Cllr O’Brien declared.Fianna Fáil councillor Bridie Collins felt it was an insult to council members to suggest the meeting was moved to a bigger venue for any other reason than health and safety grounds.Before the meeting concluded, councillors called for a solution to be found to the issue.“The six councillors need to put their heads together for the good of the community,” Cllr Sheahan said to Cathaoirleach Adam Teskey.”I can’t get a whip and make anyone carry out their mandate,” Cllr Teskey replied.”I am nominating you to get this sorted,” said Cllr O’Brien interjected.In a statement issued after leaving the meeting, Cllr Keary referred to the council chamber as being a democratic forum that is now “being run like a dictatorship”.“I worked long and hard with the community to have the Rathkeale area office retained and for the name of the town to be retained in the name of the municipal district. Now the elected representatives and the executive won’t even meet there for their monthly meetings. This is an insult to both the office staff and the people of Rathkeale,” he added.

But there are three things that members of the public will have to follow-(i)Wearing A Mask(ii)Social Distancing(iii)Sanitizing But the problem is that people do not wear masks even still! I travel everyday and I see so many people not wearing masks. What is the problem in wearing masks I do not understand. It seems like people would much rather wear an oxygen mask in the ICU rather than the mask outside.”It was a fortunate situation for the state that figures are climbing down presently but whenever a sector is opened, we ensure that we look at all aspects and once we open, the numbers do rise but we have the capacity to deal with that rise, numbers do not reach the threshold. That is the reason that we are doing this gradually, step-by-step, AG submitted.AG Kumbhakoni also argued that people are removing their masks and talking. In buses, trains people are removing masks and talking. On the scales of justice, on one hand we have inconvenience faced by the public and on the other a direct threat to their lives- AG Kumbhakoni vehemently argued. He also referred to the death of singer SP Balasubramaniam-“I have read media reports stating that the singer had shared a microphone will someone and got infected. Today he is no more! So people have to take this seriously and understand the gravity of the situation. Your Lordships if we allow everyone to travel and something happens to one of them, we do not want their blood on our hands.”On the other hand, Central Railway’s Counsel Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh appeared on behalf of the Central Railways and submitted that his client has no difficulty if the number of trains are increased to include non-essential services as well. ASG Singh submitted the following before the Court-“Yesterday, 2.10 lakh people travelled in local trains, the total capacity however is 3.26 lakh. Moreover, the actual seating capacity on each train is 1200 and after social distancing, it comes down to 720.”At this juncture, the Chief Justice alluded to the suggestion given to State to allow non-essential services also to use local trains and asked the Advocate General-“Has the demand by the public to travel in locals been assessed?”AG replied- We will do itCJ- That must be done!”You have to decide about the train travel soon as media reports suggest that there will be a second wave of the virus in December-January. In March Corona was unknown to us but now we have to draw from past experience of six months. What about the Kolkata Metro example?,” Chief Justice Datta enquired from ASG Anil Singh and the AG, referring to the colour coded e-pass system started by Kolkata metro to ensure limited number of passengers on every train in order to avoid overcrowding.AG Kumbhakoni submitted that it is not easy to open up trains to all right now. ASG Singh on the other hand, submitted data regarding the number of passengers travelling in different time slots throughout the day and suggested that staggered timing for different sectors can be introduced in order so that frequency can be increased without a spike in cases.Court then suggested that State and Railways should sit together and devise a plan-“Let it not be left to the officers only, let the ministers get involved as well. Also, you have to involve all stakeholders as well. It cannot be like a thumb rule which you formu;late and they follow (referring to stakeholders).”Senior Advocate Milind Sathe appeared on behalf of the Bar Council of Maharashtra and Goa and submitted that several lawyers travel in local trains to reach various courts located in the MMR region. He suggested that lawyers could be permitted to travel between 10 am and 2 pm.Appearing on behalf of one of the petitioners, Advocate Abhay Anturkar adopted the submissions made by Adv Sathe and added that he seeks registered clerks of lawyers also to be added in the list of essential services allowed to travel in locals along with lawyers. Many times physical copies of documents are required in court and if registered clerks of lawyers are allowed, that would be greatly beneficial to lawyers. Other High Court have allowed registered clerks, Anturkar contended.After hearing all parties extensively, the bench noted-“We are thinking of extending the benefit of travel in interim order passed earlier to lawyers and clerks in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. Let’s see how this experiment works.”As per the said interim order, daily passes are issued to advocates who wish to attend physical hearing. Next date of hearing in the matter is October 19.

‘Vicious assault’ on teenager in Derry being treated as sectarian

first_img DL Debate – 24/05/21 Police in Derry are appealing for witnesses following a report of a sectarian assault on a teenage boy in the Waterside area of the city during the weekend.A 15 year old boy sustained injuries to his back and face during the incident which police have described as a vicious assault.They are also asking motorists who may have a dash cam fitted to their vehicle to check the footage.Inspector William Calderwood says they would appeal to the man who stopped his vehicle and drove the victim home to get in touch.Inspector William Calderwood said Police received a report yesterday that at around 10:10pm on Saturday night, a 15-year-old boy was walking along Rossdowney Road with his friends when they were stopped outside a shop by a group of approximately 30 youths.One of the males in the group, described as being at least five-feet six-inches tall with brown hair and a blonde fringe, aged 16 or 17 and wearing glasses, stopped and spoke to the boy before calling over three other youths who were with him before assaulting the teenager.The victim received treatment for his injuries in hospital after receiving a number of kicks to his head, face and back and a punch to his face. His shirt was also ripped off him.Police say the attack ended up on the middle of the road where, at some point, the victim was able to get to his feet before a member of the public who was driving a white jeep-type vehicle stopped and took the victim home.Waterside Councillor Christopher Jackson says the Waterside cannot be made a no-go area for anyone.

Wife of University of Central Florida executive charged with his murder

first_imgWinter Park Police Department(ORLANDO, Fla.) — Police arrested a Florida woman on Tuesday who allegedly killed her husband and tampered with the crime scene.Danielle Redlick, 45, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder in connection with the suspicious death of her husband, Michael Redlick, a University of Central Florida executive found dead in their home last month.Police with the Winter Park Police Department found Michael Redlick, 65, unresponsive on Jan. 12, but investigators did not immediately disclose the circumstances surrounding his death.Danielle Redlick allegedly reported the death nearly 11 hours after it happened, according to an arrest warrant. She allegedly called 911 to report a “tragedy at her home,” telling dispatchers her husband appeared to be dead.“He’s been … I just … he’s stiff and he might have had a heart attack. I don’t know,” she said, according to the warrant.When the dispatcher asked whether she’d just discovered the body, she replied: “No, actually. It happened last night,” according to the warrant. She claimed her husband had tried to choke and suffocate her before she grabbed a knife, which he grabbed from her before stabbing himself.“We had an altercation and he stabbed himself, and I ran and hid in the bathroom, and when I came out I was trying to help him and saw he was lying in blood,” she allegedly told the operator. “I tried to help him and I couldn’t.”When asked if she thought her husband had died from the stab wound or a heart attack, as she’d mentioned before, she said: “Um … probably the stabbing triggered it. I guess. I don’t know. It’s a shoulder wound.”Responding officers said it appeared as if someone had attempted to clean up the scene.“The crime scene appeared to have been tampered with,” the arrest warrant said. “There was a strong smell of bleach in the residence. Circular markings appeared to be in the blood as if someone had been trying to wipe up the blood.”Danielle Redlick was arrested on Tuesday morning after a weeks-long investigation and held at the Orange County Jail in Orlando, Florida. It’s unclear if she’s obtained an attorney.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

End to EMAs

first_imgMPs voted on Wednesday to scrap Education Maintenance Allowance in England. Labour had called on the government to rethink its plans to axe the means-tested grant, which is given to students who stay in education past 16, but lost to a coalition majority of 59 votes.It was confirmed in October that the EMA was to be cancelled as part of the UK’s budget cuts, and applications have already been closed to students who would be claiming an allowance of the 2011/12 academic year.The government justified their move by arguing that the current system was inefficient, with Education Secretary Michael Gove claiming the allowance had been “poorly targeted”.A protest was staged by students outside Parliament, whilst within, Labour’s education spokesman, Andy Burnham, claimed that social mobility would be “thrown into reverse” and that it was an attack on the aspirations of young people.Gove responded that “you cannot spend money you do not have”.The grants are of up to £30 a week and were intended to be spent on course necessities, books and transport.The decision comes despite research published on Tuesday by the University and College Union which suggested that 70% of students in the poorest areas would drop out of college if they no longer received their EMA payments.Oxford uses the EMA as a part of the contextual data used to gauge student’s academic background, and therefore to help in the process of selecting those student’s with the best academic potential.Laura Bromely, a second year student at Trinity, said, “Even though it may be inefficient, it certainly helps many students through A level education which they otherwise wouldn’t have access to, and to scrap this assistance would mean places like Oxford in particular could lose bright, academically gifted candidates due to financial barriers”.Aaron Porter, NUS president, said that the EMA was a “vital lifeline” for young people.The government says it plans to support poorer students through a discretionary fund administered by colleges, which it aims to triple from its existing level of £26 million.last_img read more
