There must be Strong Social Intervention Programmes – Security Minister

first_imgRelatedThere must be Strong Social Intervention Programmes – Security Minister By Latonya Linton, JIS Reporter FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of National Security, Hon. Peter Bunting, has emphasised that there must be strong social intervention programmes, working in tandem with the crime control strategies, to ensure that significant rehabilitation and regeneration is taking place to break the cycle of crime. “Criminal gangs have permeated our society, recruiting our youth, especially young men. These gangs wield significant control over the communities in which they operate, instituting fear in the constituents of these communities,” Mr. Bunting said. He added that the execution of an effective anti-gang strategy will therefore require an integrated approach, called a “clear, hold and build” strategy. The Minister was making his contribution to the 2012/13 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives, on July 17. Mr. Bunting explained that the strategy entails ‘clearing’ gangs out of entire communities; ‘holding’ those areas by maintaining a strong, continuous police presence to provide lasting security, and then ‘building’ a robust civil society by partnering with other government agencies and non-Governmental organisations (NGOs), to provide education, training, economic opportunities, health care and prompt justice. In the meantime, Mr. Bunting said the Inter-Ministerial Committee on Community Safety and Security will now focus on the ‘build’ component of the anti-gang strategy, by “ensuring that social interventions are targeted at permanently reducing the levels of violence and resolving the underlying social problems that foster a culture where criminality is seen as desirable.” The Inter-Ministerial Committee on Community Safety and Security co-ordinates the various policies and programmes to support safer communities generally.

‘Cityzens’ arrest – Former champs spoil Liverpool EPL celebration party with 4-0 win

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (AP):As they stepped on to the pitch, Liverpool’s players were given a guard of honour from Manchester City. It was the only time they looked like English Premier League (EPL) champions yesterday.“I think they drank a lot of beers in the last week,” City manager Pep Guardiola said.The dethroned champions made sure there was an abrupt comedown from the partying. A merciless attacking display sparked by City scorers Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, and Phil Foden consigned Liverpool to a 4-0 loss exactly a week after their 30-year title drought ended.“They were quicker than us in mind – we lacked fluidity,” Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp said. “Isn’t it nice another team can be champions when Man City play so well?”The slack defending and lack of sharpness from Liverpool were perhaps forgiveable from players who had spent the previous 31 rounds establishing an unprecedented 23-point lead to become England’s earliest champions.Such an emphatic loss is not how Liverpool wanted to close out such a memorable season, especially when there are still enough games to overhaul City’s record 100-point haul from 2017-18.Klopp wasn’t as downbeat as the result suggested.“I saw a brilliant attitude. I saw boys who were fighting with all their effort,” he said. “We didn’t behave like somebody who became champions a week ago.” A Night to Forget It was a night to forget for so many Liverpool players – particularly Joe Gomez, who dragged Raheem Sterling down to concede a penalty converted by Kevin De Bruyne in the 25th minute.“We tried to play football, taking risks,” Guardiola said, “because they are the best team I ever faced in my life with high pressing. It is incredible how fast they are, how quick they play.”De Bruyne and Phil Foden helped City stylishly waltz through Liverpool and show how the title can be reclaimed next season.Receiving a pass from Foden, Sterling took the ball past Gomez with left boot before using his right to knock in City’s second in the 35th minute. Sterling and Gomez reunited in an EPL match for the first time since Liverpool’s victory over City at Anfield in November that was followed the next day by a training camp fight while they were on England duty.

House Majority Leader Misses Mark With Facebook Initiative

first_imgAll of this leaves us asking why not use the publicly available data on all pending legislation and allow citizens to “co-sponsor” any bill currently being weighed by the legislature?No matter how we feel about Facebook’s privacy provisions, we’ll be the first to admit that it is the default way to connect with people these ways. We’re not poo-poohing any initiative that harnesses social media that makes it easier for people to get involved in the political process, and we’re not bashing this from a partisan point of view. We’re bashing it from a point of view that cares about transparency.Cantor’s ploy reeks of partisanship disguised as bipartisanship (nowhere on the main page of the site are the words “Democrat” or “Republican” used). And while the Cosponsor Project may be more participatory, it’s certainly not the “open, visible” platform he promises in his introduction. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., launched the Citizen Cosponsor Project Tuesday, a Facebook-based platform he says will allow citizens to keep track of legislation currently before Congress. Log onto the site, review legislation and, if you support it, you can click “co-sponsor” and get updates on the status of the legislation as it works its way through Congress.Which is all well and good, providing you only care about the six pieces of legislation that Cantor cares about.In an introductory video and in text on the Web site, Cantor says the initiative will foster a “more open, visible and participatory legislative process.” The site refers to “we,” implying a bipartisan effort, but as Marci Harris points out on Huffington Post, the site never makes clear who “we” are. dave copeland Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts center_img Tags:#politics#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… But here’s the real rub: five of the six pieces of legislation on the site are sponsored by Republicans.

Georgia Coach Mark Fox Yelled At His Student Section For Chanting “Bruce Pearl Sucks”

first_imgGeorgia vs. Auburn basketball in 2015.Georgia’s men’s basketball coach Mark Fox got pretty upset with the Bulldogs’ student section Saturday afternoon. His team is facing Auburn in Athens, Ga. During the second half of the contest, Georgia’s students began chanting at Tigers’ coach Bruce Pearl. This did not please Fox, who proceeded to yell at the Georgia student section, asking them to stop. Georgia students were chanting something about Bruce Pearl, couldn’t hear what. Whatever it was, Mark Fox asked them to stop.— Seth Emerson (@SethEmerson) February 14, 2015It appears the Bulldogs’ students were chanting “Bruce Pearl Sucks!”Part of student section starts chanting “Bruce Pearl sucks” during Auburn free throw. Mark Fox walks over & yells at them to stop. #class— Wilson Alexander (@Alexander_taGr8) February 14, 2015That’s a pretty classy move from Fox. Student sections can be fairly mean-spirited. Georgia and Auburn are currently playing on FSN.last_img read more

(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)Clemson picked up a massive win, knocking off Notre Dame at home on Saturday night, so you know head coach Dabo Swinney was ready to dance. After the game, and a very awkward post-game interview that was accidentally cut off by ESPN, Swinney got down in the locker room, swinging a towel and hitting the Whip. We cannot confirm whether or not he added in the Nae Nae as well.With the win, Clemson danced its way to sixth in both the AP and Coaches Polls this week. The Tigers look to be in very good position to make a run at an ACC Championship, with Florida State struggling in recent weeks.last_img read more
