The group plans to walk from Alonzo Williams Park at 515 South Hawthorne Avenue in Apopka to The Apopka Police Department at 112 East 6th Street. The event is planned to start at 6:00 PM.Demarkus Johnson is the President of Black Lives Matter – FL Chapter and is organizing the event.Johnson is from South Apopka. He graduated Apopka High School in 2005, and is currently attending Bethune Cookman College in Daytona Beach majoring in Criminal Justice.Johnson says the group has very specific goals.“We want the police to wear body cameras and to not turn them off. We want them to be fair and treat everyone equally. We want people to do their research and then get out and vote.”The group marched in Orlando last weekend, and plans events in Sanford (July 17th), Apopka (July24th) and in Kissimmee (on July 31st ). Previously Black Lives Matter – FL Chapter staged events in 2013 in protest of the Trayvon Martin shooting.On the Black Lives Matter website, they describe their organization as “An ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise. It is an affirmation of Black folks’ contributions to this society, our humanity, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression.” And give a speak? You should go to a bigger school than your backyard! Sandy Anyone correct me if I’m wrong but I’ve heard an interview on TV that the only times the cameras are allowed to be turned off is for restroom breaks and during lunch.They do not have carte blanche to turn the cameras off any time they choose. If a camera is turned off and it was not authorized they are to face a punishment of some kind. If a camera becomes inoperable they have policy’s in place for that too. The south apk lawyer This is a terrorist group funded by George Soros. He has given them 44 MILLION dollars to cause trouble. Yes, some of them may think they are being “targeted for demise”, but seriously? That is BULL. They should never be allowed to disrupt one single law abiding citizen. Not for 10 seconds.

The percentage is lower only because there are three times as many whites as there are Blacks. 84% of all whites are shot by Whites and 93% of all Blacks are shot by blacks. Also while more whites are shot by Cops the percentage of Blacks shot shot by Cops is almost 3.1. Jan -Nov 2015 DOJ figures show (per million people) 6.2%Blacks (261) vs 2.1% (508). DOJ figures also show Blacks were arrested at a rate of 3x higher for minor offenses that whites received a warning for such as Marijuana possession.

There has been no police shootings in Apopka however there has been MULTIPLE black on black shootings. This poses another question, why are there no marches for that cause? Seems to me there are a lot of ignorant people that are not educated in the whole mess. So incredably sad that so many lifes are being wasted. Another question? Without law enforcement body cams or not everyone is in trouble. I dont think body cams are a bad idea at all so lets march to the drug dealers wearing them, the rapest and the murders. So another question?? If all cops wear body cams will everyone shut the hell up and admit when you see the evidence that the cop was in 99% of cases was doing his/her job. Cops put up with unbelievable BS to keep YOU safe, your children safe, your parents & your family. Its so F’d up how everyone sees the worse 2 seconds of a video and assume the cop was in the wrong. People take responsibily for your actions. You wanna fight then consider the fight on terroism. Go fight ISIS for your freedom. Blm are setting themselves up to go backwards. Im confused by all the hype. The ignorant people they interview for blm cause does no one any favors. Most dont even know why they are there. The hatred spewed at these events, the garbage left everywhere and the children they bring into a volitile situation makes the USA look like a third world county. SMH KP The US Constitution allows protest gatherings. There are no standards for validity of how ill informed the protests are. Even if the protest is hate speech against the police they are still obligated to protect the protesters. Your idiotic rant was cancelled when you said “let’s go up to the drug dealers, rapists and murderers” with body cams on. You know these types of people? We should March on your violent friend knowing ass. Also, if you are an adult, please use spell check. I can’t take you seriously if you can’t spell it. Wouldn’t that make you African -German-American ? Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter David July 13, 2016 at 9:48 pm Why would the city of Apopka allow it?Cant anyone say NO anymore?Your asking for trouble Reply People have a right to protest peacefully. I just hope that this is the case, when this protest comes to our city. Some people think that this protest should be just for South Apopka, and that the protest march should not be in the City of Apopka limit. I believe these people are missing the point of the march, altogether. One thing I do wonder myself is, why spend so much money buying the body cameras for the police, and then have a policy in place, that allows them to turn them off? That to me seems to defeat the purpose of the body cameras. Don’t think for a minute, that because I said that, that I don’t support the police, because I do. I would not want their jobs, under any circumstances, or for any amount of money! Let’s pray for our area, and that the protest goes peacefully. Our police are awesome.

A March of any kind gets media coverage which also attracts crazy radicals that can get access to firearms way to easily. In this day and age I really feel a March does more harm than good.

Published Feb. 18 in Il Manifesto in Dinucci’s “Art of War” column, which examines Trump’s proposed military budget. Translation by John Catalinotto.The “Budget for the Future of America,” which the U.S. government submitted, shows what the Trump administration’s priorities are in the federal budget for fiscal year 2021 (which begins Oct. 1). First of all, it reduces social spending: For example, it cuts the required budget for the Department of Health and Human Services by 10 percent. Meanwhile, health authorities themselves report that influenza alone has caused about 10,000 deaths in the USA from October to February, out of a population of 330 million. This news is kept quiet by the big media, which instead are raising a global alarm over the 1,770 deaths due to the coronavirus in China, a country with 1.4 billion inhabitants. One must suspect the real purpose of the relentless media campaign, which sows terror on everything Chinese. To justify the U.S. Budget, its framers insist that the U.S. “faces challenges from resurgent rival nation states, including Russia and China.” [For all quotes about the budget, see tinyurl.com/qnfcuu6/.]They charge China with “waging cyber-enabled economic warfare against the United States and its allies” and of “wanting to shape the Indo-Pacific region,” which is critical to U.S. security and economic interests, “in its image.”In order for the region to be “independent of malign Chinese influence,” the U.S. government is providing “$30 million for the Global Engagement Center to counter Chinese propaganda and disinformation.” In the context of “growing strategic competition,” the U.S. government states: “The Budget prioritizes funding for programs that would deliver warfighting advantages against China and Russia” and all other adversaries. To this end, President Trump announced that, to ensure internal security and promote U.S. interests abroad, my Budget provides $740.5 billion for National Defense” (while it provides $94.5 billion for the DHHS). The military budget includes $69 billion for overseas war operations, more than $19 billion for 10 warships, $15 billion for 115 F-35 fighters and other aircraft, and $11 billion to strengthen land armaments. The Pentagon’s science and technology programs require $14 billion for the development of hypersonic and direct energy weapons, space systems and 5G networks. These are just a few items on a long shopping list (with public money), which includes all the most advanced weapons systems, with colossal profits for Lockheed Martin and other weapons industries. In addition to the Pentagon’s budget, a number of military expenditures are entered in the budgets of other departments. In fiscal year 2021, the Department of Energy will receive $27 billion to maintain and modernize the nuclear arsenal. The Department of Homeland Security will also receive $52 billion for its own secret service. The Department of Veterans Affairs will receive $243 billion (10 percent more than in 2020) for retired military personnel.Taking these and other items into account, U.S. military spending will exceed $1 trillion in fiscal 2021. The military expenditure of the United States exerts a driving effect on the military expenditures of other countries, which, however, remain at much lower levels. Even taking into account the Pentagon budget alone, U.S. military spending is 3 to 4 times higher than China’s and more than 10 times higher than Russia’s. In this way “The Budget supports U.S. military dominance in all warfighting domains — air, land, sea, space, and cyberspace,” says the White House, announcing that the United States will soon be able to produce 80 new nuclear warheads a year in two plants. The budget for the future of the U.S. may mean the end of the world. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Filed through Advocate Kamini Jaiswal, the review petition states that the contempt proceedings against Mr. Bhushan should not have been heard by a bench comprising of Justice Arun Mishra. Mr. Bhushan has cited various instances suggesting that Justice Mishra’s presence on the Bench raises a reasonable apprehension on his part of getting a “fair and impartial hearing”. One of such instances, as stated in the petition, reads thus: “On several occasions Hon’ble Justice Arun Mishra has orally accused the Review Petitioner of committing contempt of court when he had merely mentioned that it may be inappropriate for a particular judge to hear a particular case in circumstances where conflict of interest was involved.” Further, he has contended that the inherent power of the Supreme Court under Article 129 to punish for contempt of itself is not absolute. He has submitted that such power is subject to “due process requirements” that flow from the constitution and therefore, he has asserted that the procedure and punishment for contempt should be governed by the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971. “Regulation of the power under Article 129 through prescribing procedure, maximum punishment etc. does not amount to taking away or denuding the power but only keeping such power within the limits that flow inter-alia from due process requirements under Article 21 of the Constitution and from the principle of supremacy of the Constitution rather than supremacy of any entity that the Constitution establishes,” the plea states. Reliance is placed on Supreme Court Bar Assn. case (1998) 4 SCC 409, whereby it was held that no power of the Supreme Court is unlimited and even the power under Article 142 is only to ensure complete justice to the parties before it. Mr. Bhushan has also objected to passing of the conviction judgment without hearing the Attorney General of India. He has stated that there is a prohibition on taking suo motu notice directly on the judicial side, and the same require AG’s consent. In this context he submitted that the decision in P N Duda’s case (which was cited in the SC’s contempt verdict to justify initiation of suo moto proceedings) is not a settled position of law. “In respect of the maintainability of the petition and the procedure in case of suo motu petition on information received, Justice Ranganathan opinion did not concur with that of Justice Mukharji but was in fact partly dissenting. Thus, the aspects on the maintainability of the petition without the permission of Attorney General, and in particular the procedure to be followed in such cases, there was no concurrence between both the judges and thus those observations in the judgment of Justice Ranganathan do not form part of ratio of the judgment,” the plea avers.Today, Bhushan deposited before the SC Registry the toke fine of Rupee One imposed by the Court in the contempt caseThe contempt judgment has the effect of making criticism of the Supreme Court an offence and will have a “serious chilling effect” on any discussion relating to the Supreme Court : Bhushan’s review plea [email protected]— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) September 14, 2020 Other grounds taken by Mr. Bhushan include: 1. Non-supply of complaint filed by Advocate Mahek Maheshwari Rule 6(2) of the 1975 Rules requires that “When action is instituted on petition, a copy of the petition along with the annexure and affidavits shall be served on the person charged”. However, in complete and direct violation of this rule, a copy of the petition of Mr. Maheswari that was the basis for initiating the Suo Motu proceedings was not supplied to the Review Petitioner. 2. Tweets in question were prima-facie not criminal contempt as per the decision in PN Duda Case “Two tweets of the Review Petitioner were completely innocuous and could not amount to criminal contempt. However, in the impugned judgment, there is no discussion on this aspect on which detailed submissions were made and this refusal to consider the statements in the tweet in light of the standards set by this Hon’ble Court itself (in PN Duda’s case).” 3. Truth as a defence Court has straightaway determined Mr. Bhushan’s tweets to be not in good faith, “without even attempting to examine” if the averments based on which he claimed to form his view, were true.”The impugned judgment errs on the face of its record in altogether ignoring the universally accepted defence of fair comment”- Bhushan’s review plea stated. 4. Standard of proof in criminal contempt is ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ Standard of proof in a case of criminal contempt is the same as that in criminal law generally, i.e. beyond reasonable doubt. Thus, it has to be proved beyond reasonable doubt not just that the alleged statement was made by the alleged contemnor but those words/statement beyond reasonable doubt amount to criminal contempt. Mr. Bhushan has thus sough a declaration that a person convicted for criminal contempt by the Supreme Court, including Mr. Bhushan, would have a right to an “intra-court appeal” to be heard by a larger and different bench. Prashant Bhushan Moves SC Seeking ‘Right To Intra- Court Appeal’ Against ‘Original Criminal Contempt Orders’ Passed By It He has also sought framing of rules and guidelines providing for intra-court appeal against conviction in original criminal contempt cases.Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
