Child abuse victims should have right to sue paedophiles caught with images of them, children charities say


Child abuse victims should have right to sue paedophiles caught with images of them, children charities say Child abuse victims should be given new rights to sue paedophiles caught viewing or sharing indecent images of them, children charities have said. The Children’s Charities’ Coalition on Internet Safety (CCCIS) called for the initiative arguing it would act as a deterrent for offenders, who now know they are unlikely to go do jail, as it could mean potentially losing their homes and pensions if caught with abuse material. The CCCIS, which represents charities such as the NSPCC and Barnardo’s, said those convicted of indecent images should also face a new automatic surcharge to fund the treatment and therapy costs of victims of abuse. The call comes as police have previously said they are struggling to cope with the now more than 5,000 arrests being made for indecent images every year. Police chiefs have argued that some paedophiles caught with indecent images could be dealt with by conditional cautions to lighten the caseload.  John Carr OBE, Secretary of the CCCIS, said : "If you assume these offenders are rational, they must know that the chances of them being caught, convicted and sent to jail are very close to zero. "But if they knew that if they were caught their house, their car, their pension, their assets could be at risk as they are obliged to pay compensation to the victims, that would act as a major deterrent. "Why should the taxpayer pick up the entire bill (for victim treatment) if the guys who are responsible can fund it? We’ve got the phrase ‘the polluter pays’ - here we want the abuser to pay." Victims of child abuse can currently sue their abusers through the civil courts, however their rights regarding people caught with images or recordings of their abuse are far less clear. The CCCIS, said that explosion in abuse images being shared on the internet was causing long-lasting trauma to victims whose abuse had been recorded. Last year the US-based watchdog, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, said it received reports of 18 million images worldwide being shared across major tech platforms, including 16 million just from Facebook. The CCCIS also argued an automatic surcharge should be levied on the growing numbers of people caught with images, on top of the current victim surcharge, which would fund care for victims. Currently all people convicted in UK courts pay a victim surcharge of up to £181, the proceeds of which are dispersed among various victims' charities. Mr Carr added: "The victims of sexual abuse are completely clear and know that those images are circulating on the internet and being downloaded. Some of these young people will have that pain and burden the rest of their lives. "That is a huge source of stress and anxiety for them, and so the who business of downloading needs to be discouraged and stopped." Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

Hong Kong police threaten to fire live ammunition at democracy protesters


Hong Kong police threaten to fire live ammunition at democracy protesters Hong Kong police and pro-democracy protesters were fighting into the early hours of Monday morning, with police threatening to use live ammunition against protesters in the face of barrages of Molotov cocktails from demonstrators who have occupied a university campus.  While three protesters have been shot during the 24 weeks of protests so far, this is the first time in the crisis the police have issued the stark warning.  "If they (protesters) continue such dangerous actions, we would have no choice but to use minimum force, including live rounds," said police spokesman Louis Lau during a Facebook live broadcast. The warning came after a Hong Kong police officer was shot in the leg with an arrow fired by protesters during a day-long tear-gas and petrol-bomb fuelled standoff between anti-government protesters and police.  Police on Monday morning had surrounded the Hong Kong Polytechnic University to prevent protesters from escaping as they move in.   Photographs of the injured officer were posted on the Hong Kong Police’s Facebook page, showing the arrow sticking out of the officer's lower leg.     An officer was hit in the calf by an arrow fired by protesters outside the Polytechnic University of Hong Kong Credit: EPA-EFE/REX/Hong Kong Police Force Police confirmed that the man hit was a media liaison officer, who often join police lines acting as a buffer for the press in the protests.  On Sunday afternoon, police deployed water cannons and armoured vehicles, which broke through blockades strewn with bricks and nails and dispersed protesters with bursts of blue dye laced with pepper spray.    Protesters retreated back towards the campus, blocking projectiles and tear gas with umbrellas and makeshift shields. There are estimated to be 200 protesters barricaded inside the university.  Meanwhile, on the roof of the university, protesters fired arrows and catapults with flaming projectiles towards police lines.   Warning shots were reportedly fired by police and tear gas was still being launched towards the university at 4am local time after an ultimatum for students to surrender expired, as tensions showed no sign of easing.  Anti-government protesters were hosed down inside the campus by volunteer medics Credit: ANTHONY WALLACE/AFP via Getty Images The university is near the Hung Hom cross-harbour tunnel, a 10-lane thoroughfare between the Kowloon Peninsula and Hong Kong Island.  The crossing has been a key target for protesters, who have vandalised the toll booths at the crossing, shutting down the crucial transport tunnel for more than five days.   Protesters on Sunday night also set fire to a footbridge overlooking the cross-harbour tunnel, causing a large explosion.   The university is stockpiled with Molotov cocktails and petrol bombs, many which were strewn on the footbridges in anticipation for a police assault.  University campuses have been the latest battlegrounds of fierce clashes between protesters and police, with multiple campuses across Hong Kong vandalised and barricaded by protesters dressed in black, who say they are defending the universities from the police.  The Polytechnic University is the last remaining campus in Hong Kong still held by protesters, while the others that were once occupied have been largely abandoned.   An armoured police truck burns after being hit with Molotov cocktails,  Credit: REUTERS/Adnan Abidi Speaking on Sunday afternoon, Sir Malcolm Rifkind, the former Foreign Secretary, urged restraint from Carrie Lam, Hong Kong's Chief Executive, and protesters.   “Hong Kong’s Chief Executive has the responsibility to do everything possible to prevent a massacre. She must order the police to exercise restraint and not to use live ammunition or other forms of lethal force," he said.  "A bloodbath on a Hong Kong campus would be devastating for Hong Kong as a whole. I also urge those students who have engaged in violence to stop. I condemn violence on all sides and I call on both sides to show restraint and pull back from the brink.” Read More Hong Kong crisis The Hong Kong Education Bureau announced that primary and secondary schools will stay closed on Monday across the city, citing safety concerns.  The protests initially began with the demand to withdraw a now-shelved extradition bill, which pro-democracy figures feared was a sign of increasing control being exerted on Hong Kong from Beijing and the Chinese central government.  The unrest and protests has since evolved into calls for greater Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

Trump Ally Loses Bid to Unseat Louisiana Democratic Governor


Trump Ally Loses Bid to Unseat Louisiana Democratic Governor (Bloomberg) -- Democrat John Bel Edwards won re-election as governor of Louisiana on Saturday, dealing a blow to President Donald Trump who campaigned aggressively to support challenger Eddie Rispone, a Republican who fashioned his campaign as a referendum on the president.Edwards won with 51% of the votes, according to a results portal on the Louisiana secretary of state’s website, a margin of about 40,000 votes. Turnout was 50.7% against 40.2% in the state’s previous election for governor in 2015. It followed an election day in which the president urged Republicans via Twitter to get out and vote. The Louisiana race provided the latest litmus test of Trump’s popularity before the 2020 election in a heavily Republican state that he carried by 20 points in 2016. It was the first statewide election since the House on Wednesday started the public phase of its impeachment inquiry of the president with nationally-televised hearings.As of mid-afternoon Sunday Trump hadn’t responded to the Louisiana results in any of over 30 tweets and retweets for the day. ‘Bless His Heart’ Edwards, in a victory speech Saturday night in Baton Rouge, kept his focus on local issues: vowing to raise the state’s minimum wage and invest more in early-childhood education. “Tonight, the people of Louisiana have chosen to chart their own path,” Edwards said. “As for the president, God bless his heart.” The win came less than two weeks after Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin, a staunchly pro-Trump Republican, lost to Democratic state Attorney General Andy Beshear. That was despite a last-minute push by Trump that included a rally the day before that election, where he warned the crowd that Bevin’s defeat would send “a really bad message” and adding “you can’t let that happen to me.”In Virginia, Democrats took both houses of the legislature from Republicans, gaining full control of state government for the first time in 26 years. In the aftermath of those setbacks, Trump pointed to other Republican wins in Kentucky and the Mississippi gubernatorial race where Tate Reeves defeated Democrat Jim Hood.Political CapitalTrump spent a large amount of political capital on the race in an attempt to unseat the only Democratic governor in the Deep South. The president held a rally alongside Rispone on Nov. 9 in Monroe, Louisiana, and another event in Bossier City on Thursday. In between those trips, Trump traveled to Alabama to attend the University of Alabama and Louisiana State University football game. Vice President Mike Pence also campaigned.On Saturday, the president sent multiple tweets during the morning and afternoon that urged support for Rispone, saying “He will be a great governor!” He also included links on his website to help state residents find their polling places.In Bossier City, Trump urged the audience to vote for Rispone to send a message to Democrats in Washington. He lobbed familiar attacks on the media and political opponents, including Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff, a California Democrat, and railed against the impeachment inquiry.“You can send a tremendous message back to Washington because Eddie’s running against the failed far-left,” referring to Edwards, 53, who he said would join the impeachment push from Louisiana if he was re-elected.Rispone, 70, largely campaigned on his similarities to and support for the president, pointing out that he also built his wealth in construction.“Rispone has run such a Trump-specific campaign. It’s been a campaign fairly free of policy proposals and focused mostly on his allegiance to Donald Trump and banking on the fact that Louisiana is a red state,” Pearson Cross, political science professor at University of Louisiana in Lafayette, said in a telephone interview.Democrats EnergizedCross said that Trump’s presence in the election also helped to ignite the Democratic base in the state, particularly among black voters. While Trump’s rhetoric and Rispone’s alignment with the president may appeal to Trump’s base in the state, it could also have mobilized Democratic-leaning voters who may have sat out previous elections.Trump’s approach “may work with some voters who are independents, Republicans or even conservative white democratic voters. It’s definitely not working with black voters,” Cross said.“As we look at the impeachment hearings that just started Wednesday, and as you might imagine, there’s an impeachment effect. But, what’s the impeachment effect? Well I think essentially it’s made ev Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

Report: Prosecutor used daughter as bait to catch molester A Northern California prosecutor used his 13-year-old daughter to lure a man back to the spot where she said he had molested her, so the man’s incriminating actions could be recorded on video, according to a newspaper report Sunday. The suspect has been arrested but the Santa Clara County prosecutor is under scrutiny for possibly endangering his child, the Mercury News reported, citing police reports and sources familiar with the case. Ali Mohammad Lajmiri, 76, of San Jose is charged with lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 and false imprisonment. Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en

Trump's Pardons of Servicemen Raise Fears That Laws of War Won't Apply


Trump's Pardons of Servicemen Raise Fears That Laws of War Won't Apply Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance changed out of the drab inmate's uniform he had worn for six years Friday and left the military prison at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas a free man. He arrived minutes later at a nearby hotel, where his family swallowed him in a group embrace, crying tears of joy."I want to say thank you to President Trump," he said amid a throng of well-wishers. "And I want the rest of the country to do that, too."The president Friday cleared Lorance and two other servicemen accused or convicted of war crimes, drawing cheers from thousands of supporters who said the men had been unfairly punished for decisions made in the confusion of war.But many in the military, especially in military legal circles, are not celebrating. Trump's reprieves, issued against the advice of top defense officials, were seen as a sign of disregard not only for the decisions of military juries but also for the judicial process itself.Military officials publicly accepted the president's orders -- pardons for Maj. Matthew Golsteyn of the Army Special Forces and Lorance, and a sentence reduction for Chief Petty Officer Edward Gallagher of the Navy SEALs -- with a terse yessir."We acknowledge his order and are implementing it," the Navy chief of information said on Twitter.Privately, though, many worried that Trump's actions could erode discipline by sending a message to troops and commanders that in some cases the laws of war would not apply."It's just institutionally harmful," said Rachel VanLandingham, a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel and former judge advocate who teaches law at Southwestern Law School. "This isn't about these three individuals, it's about the whole military justice system and whether that system itself is something of value to the operations of the military."The president, she added, "is saying he knows best."While all three men were accused of war crimes, the details of their cases raised disparate concerns for military order.Lorance was convicted at trial in 2013 for ordering the shooting of a group of civilians in Afghanistan, an order he then tried to cover up. He was given a full pardon.Gallagher was charged with the murder of a captive in Iraq but was acquitted this summer of all charges except for the minor charge of posing for a photo with a corpse.Golsteyn was awaiting trial on charges that he murdered an unarmed Afghan in 2010."Golsteyn is the most troubling, because the system was never given a chance to work," said Charles Dunlap, a retired major general who was the deputy judge advocate general of the Air Force and is the head of Duke University's Center on Law, Ethics and National Security."A court-martial is the best way to determine the facts," he added. "We were never able to find out whether the facts would clear Golsteyn or not."Many senior military leaders felt the pardons sent the wrong message, said Phillip Carter, an Iraq War veteran who researches military issues at the Rand Corp."Ever since Vietnam the leadership has sent a message that there is a link between discipline, respect for laws of war and military effectiveness," Carter said. "The pardons send a different message that sometimes the laws get in the way."Trump is not the first commander in chief to wield the power of clemency in a polarizing way.Washington pardoned men convicted of treason in the Whiskey Rebellion of 1791-94 despite howls of protest from other Federalists, said Mark Osler, a law professor at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota.President Abraham Lincoln repeatedly pardoned soldiers sentenced to death for desertion, even though his generals warned it would undermine battlefield discipline. President Gerald Ford announced in 1974 at a convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars that he planned to conditionally pardon 13,000 deserters and draft dodgers, which did not go over well with the audience of war veterans. His successor, Jimmy Carter, unconditionally pardoned hundreds of thousands of draft evaders."It has happened after every war," Osler said. "Pardons are used as a way to forgive the crime and heal the nation. What is different now is, the signal here seems to be to embrace the crime, not forgive it. President Trump seems to be sending a message that the gloves are off, that we are not going to constrain our military."Reactions from combat veterans were split. Many thanked the president for intervening on behalf of men who had volunteered to serve and protect their country. Others said the gest Číst dále >>> Přeložit do en
