Family unhappy with fouryear sentence for BC drunk driver who killed Mountie

first_imgCOLWOOD, B.C. – As a judge delivered a four-year prison sentence to the drunk driver who killed Const. Sarah Beckett on Friday, her grieving relatives shook and wept, before handing a letter to Crown counsel expressing their outrage.Provincial court Judge Ronald Lamperson acknowledged the sentence would seem inadequate to the many people on Vancouver Island who have been touched by the “tragic case.”“Clearly there is no sentence I can impose that will bring Const. Beckett back or address the pain that her family and friends continue to suffer,” Lamperson told a packed courtroom near Victoria.But he said he must be guided by prior decisions involving impaired driving causing death in sentencing Kenneth Fenton, 29, who has also been banned from driving or owning a weapon for 10 years.Lamperson said to his knowledge, Beckett is the first police officer in B.C. to be killed by a drunk driver.Beckett, a 32-year-old mother of two boys, had recently returned from maternity leave when she was killed in Langford, a suburb of Victoria, in April 2016.Her husband, Brad Aschenbrenner, broke down in tears as the judge recounted the details of his wife’s death.The court heard that Fenton was upset about a friend’s suicide and had been drinking heavily before he sped through a red light in his truck and slammed into Beckett’s cruiser.Another officer who had tried to stop Fenton’s truck seconds earlier because his tail lights were out described the crash as an “explosion” with “glass and smoke and dust everywhere.”The judge said a man who spoke with Fenton at the scene said he appeared “dazed and confused” and asked how the Mountie was doing. When the man replied that he thought she was dead, Fenton slumped over and began to cry.Fenton was taken to hospital, where he refused to give a blood sample and denied he had been drinking or had an alcohol addiction. A search warrant was later obtained to seize blood samples, which showed .287 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood, more than three times the legal limit.The court also heard Fenton had previous traffic convictions, including two 90-day driving bans for alcohol-related incidents in 2006 and 2010.Fenton pleaded guilty in May to impaired driving causing death and dangerous driving causing death. He was handed a four-year and three-year term for each charge, respectively, and the judge ordered that the sentences be served concurrently.Beckett’s family was unhappy with the sentence and handed a statement to prosecutors criticizing their performance, said Crown counsel Chandra Fisher outside court. Fisher refused to show the statement to the media.Alisia Adams of the B.C. Prosecution Service said counsel had regularly met with Beckett’s family and heard their concerns.“It’s clear that the family and the friends and the colleagues of Const. Beckett have experienced a profound loss. We recognize their pain,” she said.But she said Crown counsel have to look objectively at the evidence and what it can prove beyond a reasonable doubt.The family did not speak to media, but Const. Alex Berube, a spokesman for West Shore RCMP and a friend of Beckett’s, said the court process had been “very hard” for them.“We’re all human beings, even in the police force. It’s a hard day,” he said.Aschenbrenner told Fenton’s earlier sentencing hearing that he awoke at 3:30 a.m. on April 5, 2016, and knew something was wrong. Soon after, an officer knocked on his door to tell him his wife was dead.He said he lost the love of his life and the mother of their young sons, Lucas and Emmett. The hardest thing after his wife’s death was telling six-year-old Lucas “mommy wasn’t coming home,” Aschenbrenner said.The judge also outlined some of the victim impact statements and letters from Fenton’s family that described him as a kind and respectful man whose family has been attacked verbally since his arrest.Fenton apologized to Beckett’s family in court last week and said he would trade places with her if he could.B.C.’s prosecution service announced earlier this week that there was not enough evidence to approve charges against the officer who tried to stop Fenton’s truck seconds before the fatal collision.On Friday, the prosecution service said there was no evidence the officer was pursuing Fenton. As the truck accelerated away, the officer told dispatch he was “shutting it down” and reduced his speed seconds later.— Follow @ellekane on Twitter.last_img read more

Bill Bailey Fronts Prostate Cancer UK Campaign

first_imgMuch-loved comedian Bill Bailey is standing up to front Prostate Cancer UK’s new campaign to ‘crack’ prostate cancer once and for all — as new statistics illustrate the continued neglect around the disease.The new figures show that, despite being the most common cancer in men and the fourth most common cancer overall, prostate cancer lies twentieth in the ‘league table’ of annual cancer research spend per case diagnosed.The figures, published today by Prostate Cancer UK, also show that breast cancer — the most common female cancer which has a similar death rate as prostate cancer — received more than double the annual research spend (£853 per case diagnosed compared to £417 respectively).Although more used to making the nation laugh, it is statistics such as these that have inspired Bill Bailey to help expose the not very humorous facts behind this disease by becoming the front-man of The Sledgehammer Fund.Prostate cancer kills one man every hour and the number of men with the disease is rising at an alarming rate. Already the most common cancer in men, it is predicted to become the most common cancer of all in the UK by 2030.Bill, 47, will appear in a series of television, digital and print ads — scheduled to begin on January 1 — as Prostate Cancer UK launches its first large-scale communications offensive. The organisation is determined to change the fortunes of men’s health once and for all, and is waking up the nation to the impact of prostate cancer, which affects over 250,000 men across the UK.Bill, whose father in law has survived prostate cancer, is determined to help Prostate Cancer UK expose the scale of the disease, and the fact it has suffered a legacy of under-funding and ignorance.“I only campaign for the things I believe in,” he said, “and I feel very strongly about this. I read a news article about the number of men affected by prostate cancer and I was shocked by the figures. I had no idea it was so common — but, if caught early enough, can be successfully treated.“Blokes are not always good at taking care of themselves and, even if they know they have a health problem, they often don’t want to talk about it — or they just hope it will go away.“I want The Sledgehammer Fund to help change that. I hope the advert that I’ve made for Prostate Cancer UK will get men talking about prostate cancer and their prostates. The charity wants to raise more money for research because there’s a need for better treatments and better ways of diagnosing prostate cancer — so the deadlier tumours are caught, before it’s too late.“My father in law was diagnosed with prostate cancer, treated, and now leads a fulfilling life so it can be done – but over 10,000 men every year in the UK are not so lucky.”The Sledgehammer Fund aims to generate cash to support Prostate Cancer UK’s ambitious work to increase research spend into the disease, as well as improve the support men receive through the delivery of world class services.Bill added: “I hope this campaign will help bring prostate cancer into the open and help Prostate Cancer UK give men a better chance of beating this disease. If someone sees this commercial and wants to find out more about prostate cancer or make a donation – then for me it’s been a success.“To quote myself from the ad, do yourself a favour, do your Dad a favour, do your son a favour, do mankind a favour … and get giving. Help us crack prostate cancer once and for all.”The Sledgehammer Fund, which will run between January and the end of March, will also feature a series of hard-hitting print ads, which have been designed to ‘rattle the cage’, and set the issue out in stark terms.

Owen Sharp, Chief Executive of Prostate Cancer UK, said: “Men in the UK have a problem and they don’t want to talk about it. Neither do the wives and partners who will end up supporting them, the doctors who will treat them, nor the politicians who will count on their vote. Prostate cancer is the UK’s best kept worst secret.

”Prostate cancer is simply not on the radar in the UK. Even though it kills one man every hour, that’s 10,000 men each year, most men and women don’t know enough about it. We need to follow the lead of the successful female movement against breast cancer and create a real change for men.“We are going to need a very big sledgehammer to crack prostate cancer. This is more than a campaign. It is a call to arms and we are delighted that Bill Bailey is joining us and leading the charge. Men deserve better.”

first_imgKolkata: With the exception of some stray incidents of clashes, the first phase of elections in Bengal passed peacefully at Alipurduar and Cooch Behar on Thursday. The voting percentage in both the Lok Sabha seats was above 80 percent.”The election has been fair and peaceful throughout the state. There were a few stray incidents but there have been no injuries to anybody. Senior officers and observers have rushed to the spot whenever we received complaints,” said Bengal Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Ariz Aftab. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaTaking the cue from the CEO, state ADG (Law and Order) Siddh Nath Gupta, who was also present at the press conference, said: “Necessary action has been taken wherever we have received any sort of complaint.” He maintained that the security arrangements were adequate. Earlier in the day, Special Police Observer Vivek Dubey had also stated that peaceful elections were held in both the constituencies. He also acknowledged the role of state police in ensuring maintenance of the law and order situation in both the constituencies. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highwayAlipurduar saw a voter turnout of 81.58 percent, with Cooch Behar seeing a 80.11 percent turnout till 6 pm. People standing in queues to cast their votes expressed satisfaction with the security arrangements at the polling booths. Meanwhile, the police arrested seven people from Cooch Behar and one from Alipurduar for trying to create disturbance during the voting process. An official in the state CEO’s office said that three FIRs were filed for alleged vandalising of the vehicle of the All India Forward Bloc candidate at Mathabhanga in Cooch Behar, damaging an EVM at Dinhata and alleged violation of the Model Code of Conduct in Cooch Behar. “Two show-causes have been issued to presiding officers in connection with damage to an EVM in a booth and for allegedly allowing an outsider into a booth at Sitalkuchi in Cooch Behar,” the official said. Trinamool Congress Cooch Behar district president Rabindra Nath Ghosh has alleged interference on the part of Central Forces in the election. “BSF jawans have entered a booth which they are not entitled to do as per the commission’s rule. They are required to guard the polling premises and remain outside the booth. This is a clear indication that they have some sort of ulterior motive. I have informed the District Magistrate. I have also been informed that they have entered some bordering booths as well. Voting could have been better if state police were deployed,” Ghosh said. It has been learnt that the Election Commission has sought a report from the IG, BSF regarding the complaint. Ghosh also spoke with Trinamool supremo Mamata Banerjee and informed her about some EVMs going defunct at Dinhata, apart from his complaint against BSF. Ghosh also alleged conspiracy behind a number of EVMs going defunct at booths in Cooch Behar. Sources in the Commission said that polling had to be called off at Sitalkuchi due to some trouble and the matter would be taken up during the scrutiny on Friday. At Mathabhanga, the vehicle of Forward Bloc candidate Govinda Roy was vandalised and a case has been started against five accused persons regarding the incident. The EVM and VVPAT were damaged and had to be replaced at a booth in Dinhata. Meanwhile, BJP candidate from Cooch Behar Nisith Pramanik sat on a dharna in front of the DM’s office on Thursday, demanding repoll in all 837 booths where there was no deployment of Central Forces, whereas a Left Front delegation led by senior CPI(M) leader Rabin Deb met the CEO and demanded a repoll in 170 polling booths.last_img read more

UN envoy condemns rocket firing from Gaza calls for restraint by Israel

“The United Nations condemns the indiscriminate firing of rockets into civilian areas and calls on Israel to act with restraint,” said a statement issued by Robert Serry, the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process. “It is of paramount importance to refrain from violence in this tense atmosphere and for parties to work constructively in addressing the underlying issues,” said the statement, which referred to the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israel yesterday and this morning. The latest rocket firings are another breach of the ceasefire agreement brokered by Egypt in November that brought an end to eight days of violence in Gaza and Israel.Mr. Serry said the renewed violations of the ceasefire risk undermining the ‘understanding’ reached between Israel and Gaza in late November, and unravelling the gradual but tangible improvements achieved since then in the easing of the closure and the security situation in Gaza and southern Israel. “The United Nations will continue to support Egyptian efforts to restore the calm and fully implement the ceasefire understanding as the only viable way to address the unsustainable situation in Gaza.”Meanwhile, over 7,000 refugee families in Gaza will receive financial support from the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) to repair and reconstruct homes damaged during the November conflict, with the help of $15.6 million donation by the Saudi Fund for Development. “We are very happy and pleased that only four months after the conflict and the damage or destruction of these shelters, we are able to distribute the cash subsidies to the affected 7,000 refugee families,” said Robert Turner, Director of UNRWA operations in Gaza. “We have never before been able to provide this scale of support for war-damaged refugees’ shelters in such a short time. We are very thankful for this quick and generous donation by the Saudi Fund for Development.” read more

At least 16 killed in Afghan twin blasts

first_imgMap locating a suicide bombing in a wrestling club in Kabul Wednesday which was followed by a second blast. Photo: AFPAt least 16 people have been killed after twin blasts at a Kabul wrestling club on Wednesday that left another 60 wounded, including four journalists, officials said, in the latest assault on the Afghan capital.An hour after a suicide bomber blew himself up inside the sports hall in a heavily Shiite neighbourhood, a car packed with explosives detonated as journalists and security forces gathered at the scene, police spokesman Hashmat Stanikzai said.At least four journalists were wounded in the second explosion, media support group NAI told AFP.Tolo News confirmed two of their journalists were killed.There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the twin explosions, but the Islamic State group often targets Afghanistan’s minority Shiite community.”There were security forces, people, and reporters (nearby),” Stanikzai said.Health ministry spokesman Wahid Majroh said at least 16 people had been killed and another 60 wounded. A spokesman at the interior ministry gave a higher toll of 20 killed and another 70 wounded.”I was outside when the first explosion happened, which has killed over 30 people, many of them wrestlers,” Pahlawan Shir, director of the Maiwand wrestling club, told AFP.”I was searching for my coach, I have finally found him in the… hospital. He is in a critical condition.”Social media users who purportedly witnessed the attack said the bomber killed the guards at the club before blowing himself up inside.He “detonated inside where a large number of athletes had gathered. There are a lot of dead and wounded”, Mohammad Hanif said on Facebook.A photo posted on Twitter purportedly showed several victims being loaded into the back of a police pick-up.The last major attack on Shiites in Kabul was on August 15 when a suicide bomber blew himself up in an education centre, killing dozens of students.IS said it was behind that attack, which drew international condemnation and came amid a wave of deadly violence across the country.Most of the victims were studying for college entrance exams when the blast happened.That was followed a day later by an attack on an intelligence training centre in Kabul.Civilians have long borne the brunt of the violence in Afghanistan — especially in Kabul, a target of both the Taliban and IS.Journalists also have paid a heavy price covering the conflict. On 30 April, twin explosions in Kabul killed nine journalists and 16 other people.Among the dead was AFP chief photographer Shah Marai.AFP driver Mohammad Akhtar was killed less than three months later in a suicide attack in Kabul that also claimed the lives of 23 others.Wednesday’s attack comes a day after the Taliban announced the death of Jalaluddin Haqqani, who founded the eponymous militant group which is widely suspected of being behind some of the attacks in Kabul claimed by IS.Afghan special forces arrested 11 Haqqani militants in Kabul and nearby districts, the country’s intelligence agency said Wednesday.The Taliban has been conducting blistering attacks on security forces across Afghanistan, including the massive, days-long onslaught on the eastern city of Ghazni last month.last_img read more

Teachers hold protest in Cancun for unpaid salary increase

first_imgCancun, Q.R. — A group of teachers who said they represent more than 300 throughout the state held a protest in Cancun to demand a promised pay increase.The teachers took to the city’s headquarters of the Secretariat of Education for Quintana Roo, demanding the 35 percent increase promised to them since January of this year.Teachers who passed the evaluation tests in January were marked for the pay increase, however, according to the protesting teachers, that pay never materialized.A letter was sent to state governor, Carlos Joaquín González, with teachers saying the Secretariat of Education did not resolve the issue.They stressed that so far no authority, state or federal, has listened to their requests, adding they were going to wait until September 21 for their payment, otherwise new pressure measures will be announced.“Talking about a work stoppage is premature,” said Vilma Revolorio Gómez, a teacher affected. “We have to reach agreements with our colleagues to determine any actions if payment is not met.”Students around the country returned to classes less than a month ago.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 WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more
