Jury awards $68K to black student injured after white classmates wrapped rope around her neck

https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/414506-school-ordered-to-pay-68000-to-black-girl-after-classmates-allegedly

A private school in Texas this week was ordered to pay $68,000 in damages to the family of a black student who said white classmates wrapped a rope around her neck and dragged her to the ground, according to The New York Times.

A jury in Travis County ordered the school pay $55,000 for the physical pain and mental anguish caused by the 2016 incident, $10,000 for disfigurement sustained and $3,000 for medical expenses. The family sought $5.3 million in damages, but the jury did not determine that the school was guilty of gross negligence.

When women do this it's called dating.

Los Angeles 'dine-and-dash' dater sentenced

A US man nicknamed the "dine-and-dash" dater for asking women out to restaurants and leaving bills unpaid has been sentenced to 120 days in jail.

Paul Gonzales, 45, was also given three years of probation by a judge in the Los Angeles County court. He is barred from using dating apps and websites.

Prosecutors said he had defrauded at least 10 women of more than $950 (£744) from May 2016 to April 2018.

On Tuesday, he pleaded no contest to defrauding and petty theft charges.

Prosecutors had argued that Gonzales would take his dates out for dinner at different restaurants around the Los Angeles area. He would then eat and drink before leaving without paying.

We've taken your feedback from the poll and are going to implement a new ruleset for /n/. As always, our ability to moderate is directly linked to you reporting posts you see breaking the rules. We may be modifying this ruleset further in the future as we try to tune /n/ into a place that allows the maximum amount of discussion and causes the minimal amount of trouble. If you have questions or comments, find us in irc (rizon.net #/k/) or post a thread in /sug/

--

If you find yourself prone to fits of rage, are susceptible to trolls, cannot deal with dissension, ignorance, stupidity, or other such afflictions of the internet, I advise you not to scroll down, and to instead visit one of our other lovely boards. By scrolling down you are taking your mental health into your own hands, and the staff takes no responsibility for your inevitable aneurism. You've been duly warned, enjoy your News.

Board Specific Rules for /n/:

1. Thread titles must be nonbiased and a succinct representation of what is in the article. Threads with titles that don't meet this criteria will be deleted. A link to the article is required where possible.

2. Personal Attacks are now banworthy, it is fine to disagree with the content of a post, but ad homs and tripfights will now be met with bans and post deletions, regardless of the rest of the content of the post. So watch yourselves.

3. All posted articles must have national/international relevance. No more "two grannies shot in hoboken". This will be enforced at mod discretion.

  ConcernedCitizen is drafting the official changes, but for now to limit reports I would like to outline a slight rule change:

/n/ is no longer limited to national/international news.

Anything traditionally newsworthy that impacts or potentially impacts people on the international, national, or regional level or is exceptional on the local level can have its own thread.

For local stories with no real impact - we will be crafting a Flawda thread to contain them.

Here is some food for thought:

http://www.mediacollege.com/journalism/news/newsworthy.html

All other rules remain in effect until further notice.

Bump to be on top of the Flawda thread.

Threads that dissolve into accusations of schilling and tripfighting will be locked. Don't do it in the flawda thread either or you'll be banned.

https://www.militarytimes.com/news/your-military/2018/11/15/murder-charges-filed-against-navy-marine-special-operators-in-incident-that-killed-green-beret-in-africa/

Two Navy SEALs and two Marine Raiders will face murder charges in the June 2017 death of an Army Special Forces staff sergeant in Mali.

The four personnel face UCMJ charges that include felony murder, involuntary manslaughter, conspiracy, obstruction of justice, hazing and burglary in the strangulation death of Army Staff Sgt. Logan Melgar, according to a release from Navy Region Mid-Atlantic public affairs.

An Article 32 preliminary hearing for all four accused is scheduled for Dec. 10. None of those charged were named in the release.

Redacted charge sheet information reveals previously undisclosed details about the alleged incident.

Whereas previous accounts only noted that the two SEALs had assaulted Melgar, charge sheets indicate that the two Marine Raiders, identified only as a staff sergeant and a gunnery sergeant, were allegedly involved in the direct assault as well.

All four individuals are being accused of driving to the Marines' quarters to get duct tape, driving to the quarters shared by Melgar and the SEALs, then breaking down Melgar’s locked door, restraining him and binding him with duct tape and strangling him by using a chokehold.

Each has been charged with conspiracy for allegedly sharing information with each other about what they told investigators, omitting information such as the use of duct tape and the Marines’ presence in the room, and disposing of alcohol kept in the quarters.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/18/politics/bump-stocks-ban/index.html
The Trump administration rolled out a new federal regulation Tuesday officially banning bump-fire stocks.
Those who possess the devices, which make it easier to fire rounds from a semi-automatic weapon by harnessing the gun's recoil to "bump" the trigger faster, will have 90 days to turn in or otherwise destroy them from the date that the final rule is published in the federal register -- likely this Friday -- according to senior DOJ officials.
Bump stocks gained national attention last year after a gunman in Las Vegas rigged his weapons with the devices to fire on concertgoers, killing 58 people.
Officials at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives had previously concluded bump stocks were merely a gun accessory or firearm part, not subject to federal regulation, but President Donald Trump called on the Justice Department to outlaw the devices soon after the tragedy.

Justice Department officials told CNN Tuesday they took a "fresh look" at the case law, technology, and the devices and their functionality "in light of modern developments."
The rule concludes that bump-fire stocks, "slide-fire" devices, and devices with certain similar characteristics all fall within the prohibition on machine guns by allowing a "shooter of a semiautomatic firearm to initiate a continuous firing cycle with a single pull of the trigger," and therefore, they are illegal under federal law.
Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker signed the new rule Tuesday morning, according to the officials -- a notable move given the string of legal challenges surrounding the constitutionality of his appointment. The officials said they stood ready to defend against any challenges to the rule, and pointed to the fact that the Office of Legal Counsel at the Department signed off on it.

As for how many gun owners will be affected by the new rule, officials explained it was difficult to provide precise figures, saying bump stocks "aren't widespread, but they are not uncommon."

Trump said in October he told the National Rifle Association that "bump stocks are gone," but how the group responds to the final rule remains to be seen. A spokesperson for the NRA said in October 2017 that the ATF "should review bump-fire stocks to ensure they comply with federal law," but made clear it opposed the broader gun-control legislation raised by some in Congress.

$8.63bn wasted on Russian "stealth fighter" fraud scheme
http://www.business-standard.com/article/economy-policy/8-63-billion-advanced-fighter-aircraft-project-with-russia-put-on-ice-118042000029_1.html

>The proposal for India and Russia to jointly develop an advanced fighter — the eponymous Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) — has been formally buried. Business Standard has learnt that National Security Advisor Ajit Doval conveyed the decision to a Russian ministerial delegation at a “Defence Acquisition Meeting” in end-February.

>Doval and Defence Secretary Sanjay Mitra, who attended the meeting, asked the Russians to proceed alone with developing their fifth-generation fighter. They said India might possibly join the project later, or buy the fully developed fighter outright, after it entered service with the Russian Air Force.

>New Delhi and Moscow have discussed the FGFA since 2007, when they agreed that Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL) would partner Russia’s Sukhoi Design Bureau (Sukhoi) in developing and manufacturing the fighter. In 2010, Sukhoi flew the fighter, called Perspektivny Aviatsionny Kompleks Frontovoy Aviatsii, or “Prospective Airborne Complex of Frontline Aviation” (PAK-FA). Seven prototypes are currently in flight-testing.

>Russia said the PAK-FA met its needs, but the India Air Force (IAF) wanted a better fighter. So HAL and Sukhoi negotiated an $8.63-billion deal to improve the PAK-FA with the IAF’s requirements of stealth (near-invisibility to radar), super-cruise (supersonic cruising speed), networking (real-time digital links with other battlefield systems) and airborne radar with world-beating range. In all, the IAF demanded some 50 improvements to the PAK-FA, including 360-degree radar and more powerful engines.

>Defence ministry sources who played a direct role in negotiations with Russia say much of this money was earmarked for Indian production facilities for manufacturing 127 FGFAs, and for India’s work share in developing advanced avionics for the fighter. It also included the cost of four PAK-FA prototypes for IAF test pilots to fly.

>Now, the IAF has backed away from the FGFA because it argues the PAK-FA — which Sukhoi has been test-flying since January 2010 — is not stealthy enough for a fifth-generation combat aircraft.

Surprisingly, media narrowly avoids directly blaming Russia for collision with the tanker, since, it turns out, their transponder was offline and they weren't reacting to environment too well.

>The responses from Ingstad appear confused, at one point saying that if they altered the course it would take them too close to the shoals, which prompted Sola TS to respond that they had to do something or a collision would be unavoidable.
>Contributing to the confusion, the Ingstad appears to have been transiting with its Automatic Identification System switched off. That seems to have delayed recognition by central control and the other ships in the area that Ingstad was inbound and heading into danger, the account in VG seems to indicate.
