first_imgFollowing the announcement, an anonymous juror identified as “Grand Juror #1” by attorney Kevin Glogower said that the grand jury not only disagreed that certain actions taken by the police that night were justified, but that it was never given the opportunity to indict any officer for homicide.“I came out of my chair and said he just lied,” Juror #1 told VICE on how he responded to the announcement of no charges. He then filed a motion to allow the 12 jurors to speak publicly about what happened during the trial. In a rare incident of grand jury records being made public, a judge ruled that records could be released in order for jury panelists to speak publicly about the case, Daily Kos reported. Days after the motion was approved, a second juror confirmed Juror #1’s statement that charges to consider were limited.- Advertisement – Juror #2 added that he believed Kenneth Walker’s recollection of the incident (Walker, who was Taylor’s boyfriend, said the police did not knock or announce themselves before forcing their way into Taylor’s apartment, and that he fired his gun thinking they were intruders). “Each of the officers had a different story,” he said. “The only time when their story came together was when they said three phrases: ‘I don’t know,’ ‘I don’t remember,’ and ‘I’m not sure.’” He added that each also tapped their fingers on the desk after saying these phrases. “They had holes in their stories [and] they had holes in their holes.”While it is unclear if other jurors will also speak out about lies and inconsistencies present at the trial, both Juror #1 and Juror #2 have been consistent in their stories contradicting Cameron’s lies. Cameron initially tried to stop records from being released, then issued a statement last month claiming that the trial was conducted lawfully and he is “fine with the jurors speaking and making their position known.” As more of the trial inconsistencies become known and Cameron’s lies are exposed, we can only hope that Taylor will receive the justice she rightfully deserves. Both jurors spoke to VICE Media Wednesday to give some insight into how the trial took place; one even brought a notebook with notes taken during the trial. His notes depicted not only how he responded to the evidence presented, but how he processed it, giving a glimpse into how the jurors were thinking during the trial.“Cameron did not give a choice with this and we did not agree with anything he said,” the anonymous juror identified by VICE as Juror #2 said. “But I had my notes with me because I need for these people to understand I didn’t do this.”Looking at the notebook, VICE noted the phrase “covering up.” When asked about this, the juror explained that he felt the Public Integrity Unit present at the trial acted like defense attorneys for the police, giving them “softball questions” in addition to interpreting what they should be saying.- Advertisement –center_img – Advertisement –last_img read more

Emily Hawryschuk scores 200th goal in 10-5 win over Maryland

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 29, 2020 at 3:17 pm Contact Tim: tnolan@syr.educenter_img The stage was set for Syracuse to play its final game in the Carrier Dome against Maryland. It was 29 degrees and mostly cloudy in central New York around game time. Only the Orange were riding a bus down to College Park, Maryland instead. On Thursday night, it was announced both SU’s senior day and alumni weekend were being canceled due to “weather and travel concerns” from the Terrapins. Over the next two days, no snow accumulated in Syracuse. Still, Maryland chose not to travel. “We want to apologize for the inconvenience this causes our loyal fans, including the parents of our student-athletes and women’s lacrosse alumni,” Syracuse Athletic Director John Wildhack said in a statement on Feb. 27. So, No. 4 Syracuse (6-1) played No. 9 Maryland (1-3), 365 miles away from home. Syracuse won, 10-5, defeating the defending national champions for the first time since 2012 and the second time in school history. Senior Emily Hawryschuk led the way with five goals, including the 200th score of her career. At the start of the game, it was 34 degrees and cloudy with a wind chill that made it feel like the lower 20s. There were no broadcasters available to call the game on such short notice for the Big Ten Network. On the broadcast, the audio featured commentary provided by fans and players, with the PA announcer occasionally interjecting. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn the field in the first half, it was all Orange. Meaghan Tyrrell opened the scoring with an assist from Hawryschuk just over two minutes into the game. The goal was set up by what was the first of 13 successful clears on 13 attempts in the first period. Then it was Hawryschuk, taking a pass at the left block and then working her way closer to the crease. She faked before bouncing a shot in as she was shoved to the turf, giving SU a 2-0 lead nine minutes in. Sierra Cockerille added her 11th of the season to put the Orange up 3-0 midway through the first. Then, with just under 10 minutes to play, Hawryschuk deposited her second on the man-advantage to give Syracuse a 4-0 lead going into halftime.In the second, the Terrapins began to show signs of life, aided by unforced turnovers by the Orange. Hannah Warther scored to make it 4-1, but Tyrrell recorded her second of the game on a free-position shot to bring the lead back to four a minute later. Cockerille lost the ball on SU’s ensuing attack, and Maryland took it back to their end to set up the first of three-straight goals over the next seven minutes. After the goal, SU goalie Asa Goldstock — who had turned the ball over twice with errant passes during this UMD run — gathered her teammates together and tried to find the words to get her defensive unit to refocus. Evidently, it worked, as Syracuse allowed just one more goal over the final 19 minutes of the game. Goldstock finished with eight saves, giving her 507 for her career. She is just the second SU goalie to eclipse the 500-mark. On offense, SU was patient, keeping possession and time on their side. Hawryschuk earned a hat trick with a free-position shot then netted her 200th 2 1/2 minutes later to put SU ahead 7-5. Megan Carney provided some insurance with seven minutes to play, then junior Sam Swart knifed right through the Maryland defense to deliver the dagger and put Syracuse up 9-5 with four minutes left. Hawryschuk capped the Orange’s scoring with her fifth score to make it 10-5, and the celebration was on. A swarm of navy jerseys poured onto the field as the final whistle sounded, congratulating their teammates and their senior leaders in particular, the ones who should’ve been honored yesterday. In the first week of the season, SU senior midfielder Mary Rahal knew this senior day game was going to be “electric.” As the Orange handed Maryland its first three-game losing streak since 2006, it still was. Even though they weren’t in the Dome. last_img read more

Man who crashed into wall while drunk told he deserved to go to jail

first_imgA man who damaged two cars and injured a woman during a drink-driving spree was told by a Judge that he deserved to go to jail.Kyle Boyle struck two cars, injuring a woman before hitting a stone wall in Dunfanaghy on January 15th, 2017. Falcarragh District Court heard how Boyle had been driving at speed through Portnablagh before losing control and then striking the two cars and eventually crashing.Boyle tried to phone friends but Gardai arrived and arrested him at the scene.The accused, of Eden More, Dunafanaghy, had no insurance and failed to give either a breath, blood or urine sample to Gardai.Solicitor Patsy Gallagher said his client was in England working but accepted the charges and wanted to put them behind him.The court was told that Boyle, aged 22, has five previous convictions which were all for road traffic offences.Solicitor Gallagher said Boyle was doing well in construction in England and was now in the care and guidance of his grandfather.“He does not wish to go to jail and he has learned the hard way. He is still a young man of 22 and has learned a lot from his deeds and knows of his stupidity,” he added.Judge Paul Kelly said the crime merited a custodial sentence but said it was probably not worth making the accused do a custodial sentence.He fined him €500 and banned him from driving for four years for having no insurance, he jailed him for three months but suspended the term for two years for refusing to give a breath specimen.He also fiend him a further €500 and disqualified him for driving for two years for dangerous driving.Man who crashed into wall while drunk told he deserved to go to jail was last modified: April 18th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:courtcrashDunfanaghyGardaiKyle BOylelast_img read more
