Police website for the people

first_img5 April 2007The South African Police Service (SAPS) has launched a new website to boost interaction with the public and provide information on personal safety, community policing and crime-fighting initiatives.SAPS head of communications Joseph Ngobeni said the SAPS Journal Online would allow South Africans to submit their stories about crime, as well as showcase stories of police successes and convicted criminals.“The site will also provide South Africans, and the world, with stories ranging from policemen and women who risked their lives fighting crime and saving others to those of dedicated investigating officers who have spent days and nights pursuing criminals in order to bring them to book,” Ngobeni said.Ngobeni urged South Africans to use the site to contribute meaningfully towards fighting crime in the country, adding that people could also use the website to report suspected corrupt activity among police officers.“We are transparent. If there is any corruption, we are not going to sweep it under the carpet, and if some of the stories that come from the public will be exposing [corruption], they’ll be welcomed,” he said.SAPS publications manager Strini Govender said the site would be updated daily, with stories coming from provincial communications officers.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

Download Now My wife and I had no sooner sat down to dinner and the waitress was already standing at the edge of our table, ready to take our drink orders. That might seem like good service, but we literally hadn’t even placed the napkin on our laps. So, we ordered something to drink.The drinks were brought to our table immediately, and the waitress asked if she could take our orders. This is one of the funky, cool, independent restaurants we frequent, and since we always order the same thing, we gave the waitress our order. When the waitress left the table, we started talking about all of the stuff we have going on with kids, work, and other family stuff. We were catching up after not really having a chance to during our always hectic weeks.It might have been four minutes before the waitress was back with our food. She quickly and efficiently dropped the food on the table and asked if we needed anything else. Neither of us had our phones turned on. We didn’t have enough time to even begin to have a conversation, but now our dinner was sitting in front of us.The food was great and we took our time eating. As we were halfway through dinner, our waitress was back with our check, leaving it on the table and speeding off to clear the surrounding tables. She didn’t ask about dessert. She didn’t ask about coffee. She didn’t ask if we’d like to order anything else. We would have said “yes,” to almost anything she offered just to have the time to hang out and chat.I thought maybe it was our waitress, but I looked around and noticed that the entire staff was moving at this same pace. In fact, all the tables that had been full when we walked in had been turned, and there was no line of people waiting to be seated or served.Level 1 Value is a product. The value you create at Level 1 is efficiency. That’s great for transactional sales models, like McDonald’s. But it isn’t the right level of value for funky, cool, eclectic restaurants that are competing on experience, Level 2 Value. Experience isn’t about efficiency. Experience is about how you make people feel.If what you sell is experience, then efficiency isn’t the right area to focus. The right place to focus is feelings.last_img read more

Earnest, 19, is accused not only of the synagogue shooting but also of an earlier arson fire at an Escondido mosque. He is being charged by both federal and state prosecutors and faces a possible death sentence in both cases. Neither office has made a decision regarding whether they will pursue the death penalty.Earnest, of Rancho Penasquitos, is accused of carrying out the shooting at Chabad of Poway on April 27 — the last day of Passover — killing Lori Gilbert Kaye, 60, who was shot twice in the synagogue’s foyer and died at a hospital.The congregation’s rabbi, Yisroel Goldstein, 57, lost an index finger in the shooting. Two other people — Almog Peretz, 34, and his 8-year-old niece, Noya Dahan — were also injured.Earnest is also accused of setting a March 24 fire at an Escondido mosque — a crime to which Earnest allegedly confessed in an online manifesto he posted prior to the synagogue shooting.Following his initial appearance Tuesday afternoon, he’s slated to return to court May 28 for a preliminary hearing. He remains held without bail.He was charged last Thursday with 109 federal hate crimes:— 54 counts of obstruction of free exercise of religious beliefs using a dangerous weapon, resulting in death, bodily injury and attempts to kill;— 54 counts of hate crimes stemming from the synagogue shooting inviolation of the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act; and— one count of damage to religious property by use of fire.Each of the 54 hate crime and obstruction of free exercise of religious beliefs counts apply to a person who was inside the synagogue during the shooting, Brewer said. Among those people, 12 of the congregants present were children, he said.Earnest is due back in federal court May 28.Earnest is also charged in state court with murder, attempted murder and arson. His next court hearing in the state’s case is a readiness conference set for May 30.Kaye, a longtime member of Chabad of Poway, was at the temple with her physician husband and daughter the day of the shooting to honor her mother, who recently died. The rabbi, Goldstein, lost his right index finger in the shooting. Peretz was shot in a leg while shepherding children to safety. His niece was struck by shrapnel in her face and leg.An off-duty Border Patrol agent working as a security guard was inside the temple when the shooting began, and he opened fire as the suspect fled, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said. The agent did not strike Earnest, but did hit the suspect’s car, authorities said.Police said Earnest called 911 at around 11:30 a.m. and said he had been involved in the shooting and was armed.According to the federal complaint, Earnest told a dispatcher, “I just shot up a synagogue. I’m just trying to defend my nation from the Jewish people … They’re destroying our people … I opened fire at a synagogue. I think I killed some people.” He allegedly added that he shot up the synagogue “because the Jewish people are destroying the white race.”A San Diego police officer who had been en route to the synagogue spotted the suspect’s vehicle and pulled him over at 17051 W. Bernardo Drive, less than two miles west of the synagogue, Deputy District Attorney Leonard Trinh said.Earnest got out of his vehicle with his hands up and was taken into custody without further incident, according to police.In the “open letter” that authorities say Earnest posted online shortly before the shooting, the author espouses flagrant anti-Semitic sentiments and a need to protect the “European race.” He wrote that he spent four weeks planning the attack, citing his “disgust” for Jews and a desire to kill them, and expressed admiration for the Australian white nationalist who attacked two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, in March, killing 50 people.The writer also claims responsibility for the March 24 fire set at the Dar-ul-Arqam Mosque, also known as Islamic Center of Escondido. The 3:15 a.m. fire was quickly extinguished by people inside the mosque. Graffiti left on the building made reference to the mosques attacks in Christchurch.Surveillance footage allegedly captured a suspect arriving at the mosque in the same type of vehicle in which Earnest was captured on the day of the synagogue shooting.

Qunun escape sparks rare criticism of Saudi guardianship laws

first_imgFactfile on what we know so far about the 18-year-old Saudi woman Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun who was detained at Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok and is now being helped by UNHCR. Photo: AFPA Saudi teen’s live-tweeted asylum plea has cast a renewed spotlight on women’s rights just months after women won the right to drive, and sparked rare criticism of restrictive “guardianship” laws — from men.Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, 18, arrived in Thailand at the weekend after fleeing what she called an abusive family in the deeply conservative kingdom and staved off deportation after her tweets drew global attention.Qunun’s impassioned cry for help set off a media frenzy, prompting angry denunciations and death threats from many in a kingdom where guardianship laws are still widely supported.But the incident sparked a rare online debate as several young Saudis — including men — implored authorities to dismantle the guardianship system.Seen as a form of gender apartheid, the system means Saudi women are often only as free as their male “guardians” — husband, father and other male relatives — allow them to be. The men in their lives have to give formal permission for the women to study, get married or even renew their passports.”Guardianship gives men the ultimate authority over women,” a young Saudi medical student named Bandar said in a video monologue posted on Twitter.”He can control her, slap her, beat her, do whatever he wants and no (government) agency can stop him.”This is causing women to dream about living elsewhere, away from where they were born and raised. Why? Because living here suffocates them.”As tweets by Qunun, now in the care of a UN refugee agency in Thailand, went viral, a new hashtag gained traction in Saudi Arabia: “Drop guardianship or all of us will migrate”.”Saudi society, in general, has utterly failed to come to terms with the reality that women have an equal desire for self actualisation,” tweeted another Saudi man, Ahmad Nasser al-Shathri.”The notion that a women’s innate desire is to be a homemaker is crippling our societal growth.”‘Repressive’ systemThe backlash follows a wide-ranging liberalisation drive spearheaded by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman that is aimed at transforming the conservative petro-state, long criticised for its treatment of women.His reforms include the much-celebrated decision overturning the world’s only ban on female motorists last June, allowing women to attend soccer games alongside men and take on jobs that once fell outside the narrow confines of traditional gender roles.Catalysed in large measure by what experts call economic pain owing to a drop in oil prices, the reforms have introduced a series of firsts in the Saudi labour market, where women have a miniscule presence.In recent months, Saudi media has championed the first woman restaurant chef, first woman news anchor and even the first woman racing driver.For the first time, women are seen alongside men in music concerts and social gatherings, amid the waning influence of the once-feared religious police, which strictly segregated the genders.But while transforming the lives of many women, this reform drive will be cosmetic for many others until the kingdom abolishes a system that gives men arbitrary authority over their female relatives, critics say.”The social reforms in Saudi Arabia are very much real and they will improve the everyday lives of women,” Bessma Momani, a professor at Canada’s University of Waterloo, told AFP.”But the guardianship system remains repressive and hinders women’s rights and mobility.”Lightning rodWomen’s empowerment is a potential social lightning rod in the deeply traditional society of Saudi Arabia.Officials close to the government say they are seeking to dismantle the system piecemeal to prevent any backlash from arch-conservatives.Meanwhile, horror stories regularly surface.Women inmates are often reported to be stuck in prisons after completing their terms because they were not claimed by their guardians.One Saudi woman told AFP how she was stuck in limbo, unable to even renew her passport, when her father, her only male guardian, slipped into a coma after an accident.Many Saudis condemned Qunun for what they described as dishonouring her family.But as she galvanised international support in a Twitter-led campaign, many others voiced solidarity — especially after the Saudi charge d’affaires in Bangkok was caught on tape telling Thai authorities they should have confiscated Qunun’s cellphone.”It is challenging for the crown prince to completely dismantle guardianship laws because of religious conservatives who have a vested political interest to remain relevant in a changing Saudi Arabia,” said Momani.”That said, social pressure from young people like Rahaf, who find the reforms glacially slow … may prove more of a political challenge than the religious conservatives.”last_img read more
