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

O’Neill wants Fergie-Keane truce

first_img As a manager and captain combination at Manchester United, Ferguson and Keane were one of the most successful partnerships the game has seen, winning seven Premier Leagues and a Champions League together. Their relations have grown increasingly sour, though, with fall-outs common since Keane left Old Trafford in 2005. Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill would like to see assistant Roy Keane reconcile with former boss Sir Alex Ferguson. Their respective autobiographies also increased tensions, but O’Neill wants the two men to put their differences to bed. Quoted in the Guardian, he said: “Manchester United have been incredibly successful and these men were two fundamental factors in this. “The manager’s obviously very important, having been able to oversee success for such a considerable amount of time. To stay at any football club for such a length of time is incredible; to stay at a club like Manchester United that was demanding then sustaining such success is even more so. “Roy Keane was a vital cog in that. If you were to ask Sir Alex Ferguson, I’d bet one of the top three or four signings he made would be Roy Keane. And he signed some very fine players. That’s how important Roy was to him. “The two of them were brilliant for each other over a number of years and I think that’s something that shouldn’t be forgotten over time. “People can have their arguments and who am I to step into anyone else’s argument, who am I to intervene? I’m not [doing] that, but what I maintain is that the two of them were magnificent for each other and from an outsider’s viewpoint it’d be nice if at some stage or another they recognise that publicly. “I know that deep down they know they were superb for each other.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Doc Rivers says Clippers won’t make move predicated on temporary loss of Blake Griffin

first_imgCrawford hears his nameSixth-man Jamal Crawford’s name often is mentioned in trade rumors. For Rivers’ part, all he said was, “I’ll let you know,” when confronted with that current whisper.As for Crawford, he told reporters earlier this season that he’s gotten used to this. Ever the professional, Crawford said he is not concerned.“At the end of the day, I can’t worry about stuff I can’t control,” Crawford said Wednesday before practice. “I just have to do my job and be as professional as possible, whether something changes or nothing changes.”Crawford previously said that while he would love to continue playing for the Clippers, he would have no problem playing elsewhere. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error To counsel or notRivers said sometimes he speaks with players whose names come up in trade gossip, sometimes not.“Some guys are very sensitive, some guys are not,” he said. “But the guys who are sensitive, even when you tell them they’re not involved or involved, you know, they’re still going to be sensitive because for a lot of people, what they read, they believe.“And I don’t get that, you know, after meeting all you guys.”Rivers laughed.“But it’s the truth,” he said. “When you see it in print or anything, you’re worried and, so, it’s typical.”Griffin on the mendGriffin’s timetable for return was listed as anywhere from three to six weeks. But he intimated Wednesday that he might be ahead of schedule.“It feels good, it feels better,” he said. “I saw the doctor again yesterday, got some good news. So everything’s either on track or looking better than it was. Still really don’t know a timetable, but happy with how it feels.”Griffin was asked specifically what the good news was.“Just how good it looks at this point,” he said.Griffin is wearing a sophisticated brace on his elbow that was locked into a certain position until Tuesday, so the elbow would remain stationary. He said he expects to get his stitches removed Tuesday.He’s bummed about being out at this time, with 28 very important games left in the regular season and playoff seedings on the stove.“It’s never a position I want to put my teammates in and I feel bad for that, but there is not a lot I can do,” he said. “I don’t want to do anything to make it worse to make (recovery) longer. It’s the hand we’ve been dealt.”The Clippers were 2-1 without Griffin before today. center_img Los Angeles Clippers coach Doc Rivers – also president of basketball operations – on Wednesday insisted that if he does decide to play Monty Hall and make a deal before today’s trading deadline, it won’t be because the team will be without All-Star power forward Blake Griffin for the next few weeks because of recent surgery to remove a staph infection from his right elbow.“We will never do a trade because a guy’s injured and you know you’re going to get him back,” said Rivers, whose 35-19 team returns from the All-Star break to host San Antonio (34-19) today at 7:30 p.m. at Staples Center. “That’s short-time thinking and that’s poor thinking, so that will never happen.”Rivers can’t talk specifically about players currently under contract. But he was asked to discuss how his team might be helped by whatever move he could be contemplating.“I don’t know, is the answer,” Rivers said. “I like our team, so if something presents itself where we feel like it makes us better, we have to look at that. Honestly, I don’t see that happening. But it could. You know, the last 24 hours I’m sure we’ll get more active from other teams and if someone presents us with something, or we like something, we’ll pursue it.”last_img read more
