Friends testify good character should win accused Arbery murderer bond. Then come the racist texts

first_imgThe McMichaels have accused Arbery of illegal activity on a property under construction in the area, but the property owner Larry English has said nothing was ever taken from the site. “Even if something had been though, I will say, Mr. English has been very clear that he would never have wanted anything like this to happen,” Elizabeth Graddy, English’s attorney, said. In court, Bob Rubin, co-counsel for Travis McMichael, floated an alternative to English’s report, according to the AJC. “We have substantial evidence on that particular day Mr. Arbery was not a jogger. He was there for nefarious purposes,” Rubin said. The judge ruled, however, that Arbery’s character will not be considered at the bond hearing, the AJC reported.“I’ve got a feeling as we go into the evidence today there’s gonna be a bunch of artillery thrown back and forth on a bunch of touchy subjects, things that can inflame,” Superior Court Judge Timothy Walmsley said in court Thursday. He wasn’t wrong.RELATED: Father and son FINALLY arrested on murder and aggravated assault charges in Ahmaud Arbery caseRELATED: Questions abound for the man whose leaked video resulted in the arrest of Ahmaud Arbery’s murderersRELATED: ‘It was a lynching’: Ex-Georgia cop and son accused of tracking down and killing Black joggerRELATED: ‘Killed in cold blood’: Joe Biden advocates for justice in death of unarmed Black man in GeorgiaThe Georgia run-off is January 5th.

To her, getting her family out of jail was the priority, but to Wanda Cooper-Jones, Arbery’s mother, the McMichael men have been spared enough. They weren’t even arrested until 74 full days after Arbery’s death on Feb. 23, despite video footage Bryan had taken of the moments leading up to Arbery’s death. “Ahmaud wasn’t allowed to go home,” Cooper-Jones said. She added that “it would be totally unfair” for his accused killers to instead get that opportunity.- Advertisement – WARNING: This story contains profane language that may be offensive to some readers.The evidence at hand was a series of text messages and social media posts using the language “slant eye f—ks” and “shooting a crackhead coon,” according to Arbery family attorney Lee Merritt. Langford’s best defense for the disgusting messages was that they, including one describing a “black c–n w/ gold teeth and a high point .45,” were referring to a raccoon. “He felt remorse (in the Arbery shooting). He didn’t like what happened,” Langford said of his friend in court.- Advertisement – Gregory and Travis McMichael weren’t arrested until Thursday, May 7, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said. And Bryan’s arrest on May 21 only followed viral demands for justice in the case and the assignment of a Black prosecutor, Cobb County District Attorney Joyette Holmes. Two earlier-assigned district attorneys are being investigated for “possible prosecutorial misconduct” for their handling of the case, including George Barnhill, the district attorney of the Waycross Judicial Circuit, and Brunswick District Attorney Jackie Johnson, who formerly employed Greg McMichael.Merritt said Arbery, a former high school football standout, was unarmed at the time of his death in coastal Georgia’s Satilla Shores community. Gregory McMichael and Travis McMichael “saw him, got their guns, got in a truck, chased him down, pulled up next to him, shot him at least two times, and killed him right there on the spot,” according to a petition to get the men arrested.“When Gregory saw Ahmaud running in his neighborhood, Satilla Shores, a predominately white community, he and his son immediately armed themselves with a shotgun and a 357 magnum, hopped into their pickup truck, chased him down and shot him,” petitioners said on the website.- Advertisement –center_img – Advertisement – The court covered substantial ground Thursday with the hearing serving not only as an opportunity for the accused to make their cases for bond, but also for the state to present motions to the judge, one of which covered whether the racist social media posts in question could be considered. The state subsequently won all of its motions, but the McMichaels clan continued making its case for its patriarchs. Greg McMichael’s wife testified her husband, a veteran who’s never been convicted of a crime, had only been outdoors once in the six months since he’s been jailed, according to tweets from an AJC reporter. Allison McMichael also mentioned her son’s efforts to save lives while enlisted in the U.S. Coast Guard.xlast_img read more

US sends supply of Tamiflu to Asia

first_img Text of Leavitt’s prepared speechhttp://archive.hhs.gov/news/speech/2006/060522.html The announcement came as health officials continued to investigate whether a cluster of avian flu cases in an Indonesian family involved person-to-person transmission. The WHO reported today that all confirmed case-patients in the cluster had close and prolonged contact with other family members who were ill and that no alternative source of infection has yet been found. In a Reuters news report yesterday, Leavitt was quoted as telling reporters in Geneva that the oseltamivir supply sent to Asia “would belong to the United States and we would control its deployment.” He declined to say how many treatment courses had been sent. See also: Oseltamivir is considered the drug most likely to be helpful if the H5N1 avian flu virus evolves into a pandemic strain. Many countries, including the United States, have been stockpiling it. The US government has a goal of stockpiling enough Tamiflu to treat 25% of the US population. Leavitt said the nation will have 26 million treatment courses by December and 75 million by the end of next year, Reuters reported. May 23, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – The United States is sending a load of oseltamivir (Tamiflu) to an undisclosed site in Asia for use in fighting a possible avian influenza pandemic, Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt announced yesterday. The supply would be used in efforts to contain an emerging pandemic, but the government could recall the drug for domestic use if it became clear that containment overseas was not possible, according to Reuters. “I am pleased to announce the United States government has just deployed treatment courses of Tamiflu to a secure location in Asia. The shipment is currently in transit and will arrive later this week,” Leavitt said in remarks prepared for delivery at the annual meeting of the World Health Organization (WHO) in Geneva. He said President George W. Bush is committed to “forward-positioning a portion of U.S. antiviral stocks for use in a human pandemic.” May 23 WHO update on Indonesian situationhttp://www.who.int/csr/don/2006_05_23/en/index.htmllast_img read more

US to test fewer wild birds for avian flu this year

first_imgEditor’s note: This story was revised May 8 to include a piece of additional information on testing of environmental samples.May 7, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – US government agencies said today they will test fewer wild birds for the H5N1 avian influenza virus in the 2007 season than they did last season, while focusing on the highest-risk species and locations.The two agencies that monitor wild birds—the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of the Interior (DOI)—collected about 109,000 samples from birds during the 2006 season, which ran from Apr 1, 2006, to Mar 31, 2007, said Karen Eggert, a spokeswoman for the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS).The two agencies plan to collect about 77,000 bird samples for the 2007 season, about 32,000 fewer than in 2006, Eggert told CIDRAP News. She said the agencies also plan to test 25,000 fecal environmental samples, down from 50,000 tested last season.Based on information collected last season, the USDA’s strategy for this year will focus on sick and dead birds from duck species believed to be the most likely carriers of H5N1: mallards, American wigeons, and northern pintails, Eggert said.The agencies will focus on the Pacific, Atlantic, Central, and Mississippi flyways, as well as Hawaii in the South Pacific, she said.The largest number of samples will be taken from birds in Alaska, according to a Reuters report today. US monitoring efforts began in Alaska in the summer of 2005. Alaska is at the forefront of wild bird monitoring because it is the first US stopover for birds from Asia and other continents where the H5N1 virus is present.In August 2006, the USDA and DOI broadly expanded wild-bird monitoring for H5N1 beyond Alaska to the lower 48 states, Hawaii, and other Pacific islands. According to the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza Early Detection Data System (HEDDS), testing found no cases of highly pathogenic H5N1 and only isolated cases of low-pathogenic H5N1 and H5N3 strains of avian flu in six states (Delaware, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Montana, and Pennsylvania), common findings in North American birds.Other possible routes of H5N1 introduction into the United States include the importation of infected poultry or pet birds that could spread the disease to wild birds along US flyways.Meanwhile, animal health officials in Vietnam said the H5N1 virus has probably resurfaced in ducks in the country’s central province of Nghe An, the Chinese news service Xinhua news reported today.Samples from the ducks were positive for an H5 virus, and further tests are being conducted to determine if it is the deadly H5N1 strain, Thanh Nien News, a Vietnamese newspaper, reported yesterday.Officials said 246 of 610 ducks in the affected flock died between May 1 and 4, Xinhua reported. The flock had not been vaccinated to prevent bird flu, and the remaining ducks were culled, according to Thanh Nien News.Vietnam’s last poultry deaths from H5N1 were reported in January 2007, according to the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE). According to the World Health Organization, Vietnam has had 93 human H5N1 cases and 42 deaths, but there have been no new reports since November 2005.In other avian flu news, officials in Bangladesh detected avian flu at another chicken farm, which led to the culling of 1,500 chickens at the farm near Rajason on May 3, The Daily Star, a Bangladeshi newspaper, reported yesterday. As a precaution, officials culled 8,500 more birds the next day on three nearby farms in Savar, about 15 miles northwest of Dhaka, the capital, the story said.Bangladesh reported its first H5N1 outbreak in poultry in late March. Figures from the latest report and previous ones indicate that more than 80,000 birds have been culled so far.In France today, agriculture officials lowered the country’s avian flu risk level to “negligible.” The risk had been raised to “weak” in February after avian flu was detected on a British turkey farm, Reuters reported.The British outbreak, at a farm in Suffolk, led to the culling of 160,000 turkeys, Reuters reported. A final epidemiological report released by the UK Apr 19 said the source of the virus remained unknown but might have been contaminated turkey meat imported from HungaryThe H5N1 virus has not been detected in France since April 2006, according to reports posted on the OIE Web site. H5N1 infections had previously been detected in wild birds and at a turkey farm.See also:CIDRAP avian influenza overviewOIE reports on Vietnamese poultry outbreakshttp://www.oie.int/downld/AVIAN%20INFLUENZA/A2007_AI.phpOIE report on French H5N1 outbreakshttp://web.oie.int/wahis/reports/en_imm_0000005696_20070705_173643.pdflast_img read more
