NYC investigates dispute between white woman, black birdwatcher

Published

on



New York City’s Commission on Human Rights has launched an investigation into the verbal dispute between a white woman with an unleashed dog and a black man bird watching in Central Park.

The commission has sent a letter of inquiry to the woman involved, requesting her cooperation in a pre-complaint intervention.

“At a time when the devastating impacts of racism in Black communities have been made so painfully clear-from racial disparities in COVID-19 outcomes, to harassment of essential workers on the frontlines-it is appalling to see these types of ugly threats directed at one New Yorker by another,” said Sapna V. Raj, Deputy Commissioner of the Law Enforcement Bureau at the NYC Commission on Human Rights in a statement.

“Efforts to intimidate Black people by threatening to call law enforcement draw on a long, violent and painful history, and they are unacceptable,” the statement continued. “We encourage Ms. Cooper to cooperate with the Commission and meaningfully engage in a process to address the harm that she has caused.”

The agency sent Amy Cooper, the white woman who called police, a letter — a pre-complaint intervention — the first step in its investigation. She has five days to respond to the letter or the next step could be litigation.

Raj believes Cooper’s actions violated Christian Cooper, the black man who was birdwatching, his human rights. The commission is seeking restorative justice.

Vybz Kartel Murder Case: Interview with Human Rights Attorney Isat Buchanan [EXCLUSIVE]

Published

By



The dancehall artist Vybz Kartel, whose legal name is Adidja Palmer, is much more than a performer and prolific creator. He’s an influential cultural icon, the epitome of the self-made man from the streets who succeeded despite the odds. Now facing a life sentence, he’s in the battle of a lifetime — his last chance at freedom.

Now in an exclusive interview, his attorney, Isat Buchanan, tells me there’s new evidence of foul play and fake phone messages that could throw out his conviction and set Kartel free. So he’s taking the case to London in a high-stakes appeal.

Artist Vybz Kartel, whose legal name is Adidja Palmer, is much more than a performer and prolific creator. He’s an influential cultural icon, the epitome of the self mad man from the streets, who succeeded despite the odds. Now facing a life sentence on a murder conviction.

“Looking at the evidence, this case was about getting Vybz Kartel in prison and leaving him there,” Isat Buchanan, his attorney, said in an exclusive interview.

Buchanan said that much of Kartel’s 2014 murder conviction along with three co-defendants was based on questionable evidence from a Blackberry Torch cellphone.

“What was put before the jury was evidence which we do not know if it was authentic, but what we do now know was that there was tampering of that cell phone,” Buchanan said.

Buchanan said the examination of the cell phone was done by a court-authorized British digital expert flown in from the U.K. He believes that, along with what he says are violations of Kartel’s constitutional rights, earned him the chance to appeal the conviction to the U.K.’s Privy Council, similar in power to the United States Supreme Court.

“Our hope is that the Privy Council, in reviewing the evidence, the fresh evidence that will be put before them, would come to the conclusion that everyone who has looked at the case or have access to the material would find that the conviction is unsafe and cannot stand,” Buchanan said.

The Privy Council has several options, according to Buchanan, but he’s focusing on the best case scenario for the imprisoned dancehall king.

“We’re looking for a complete overturn of the conviction and for Mr. Palmer and his co-defendants to be free,” Buchanan said.

Buchanan plans to file what’s called a fresh evidence application to the Privy Council within the next several weeks. He said he’s confident that after a thorough review, justice will prevail, and his client, whom he calls Mr. Palmer, will be a free man by next year.

By



Jean Victor Geneus, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Worship of the Republic of Haïti, addresses the general debate of the 77th Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations (New York, 20 – 26th September 2022).

The UN General Assembly (UNGA) is the main policy-making organ of the Organization. Comprising all Member States, it provides a unique forum for multilateral discussion of the full spectrum of international issues covered by the Charter of the United Nations. Each of the 193 Member States of the United Nations has an equal vote.

The United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945. Currently made up of 193 Member States, the UN and its work are guided by the purposes and principles contained in its founding Charter.

The UN has evolved over the years to keep pace with a rapidly changing world.

But one thing has stayed the same: it remains the one place on Earth where all the world’s nations can gather together, discuss common problems, and find shared solutions that benefit all of humanity.
