Former NYPD Officer Peter Liang Won’t Spend a Day in Prison for Akai Gurley’s Death

pol

There’s no dispute over whether former NYPD officer Peter Liang shot and killed Akai Gurley in a darkened Brooklyn stairwell in November of 2014. But after a jury found him guilty on charges of manslaughter in a high-profile trial, a judge reduced the charge to criminally negligent homicide on Tuesday, reported NBC News. Though Liang faced up to 15 years in prison after his initial conviction, he will serve five years of probation and 800 hours of community service.

And will not spend one day in prison for Gurley’s death.

Liang’s case became national news amid harrowing stories of police violence in black communities. In New York City and across the country, Liang’s supporters said that he had become an easy scapegoat for police accountability because he is Asian-American. In one petition to the White House, supporters wrote, “the circumstances surrounding Mr. Gurley’s death lead to a manslaughter indictment this week, whereas police officers in the Michael Brown and Eric Garner case were never charged. Criminal charges appeared more likely in the later two cases, but these two non-Asian police officers were never charged.”

Gurley’s family, however, was buoyed by the initial verdict. “We have to send a message not only to the system, but to these police officers, their commanders, to the mayor: no more,” Hertencia Peterson, Gurley’s aunt, said in an interview at the Kings County Supreme Court in downtown Brooklyn during Liang’s trial. “Enough is enough. Stop with the excuses. Hold these officers accountable because, at the end of the day, they have a job, they’re collecting a paycheck, they’re seeing their loved ones. Akai Gurley’s not.”

Still, an unlikely coalition of black and Asian-American activists emerged in the aftermath of Gurley’s death that vowed to bring Liang to justice. “Just because it’s an Asian cop doesn’t mean that doesn’t mean that he shouldn’t be indicted,” said Meejin Richart, an organizer with CAAAV, at the time. “In fact, all cops need to be held accountable when they brutalize and kill communities that they’re paid to protect.”

US University to spend $3 million on cyber security after hack attacks

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Rutgers University in New Brunswick is to spend up to $3 million (£1.9 million) on cyber security to prevent hackers crippling the university’s computer networks. This expensive action is in response to at least four cyber attacks during the 2014-2015 school year that knocked the school offline and resulted in cancelled classes. SEE ALSO: Steve “the Woz” Wozniak trolls Samsung: Sells “worthless” Galaxy Gear smartwatch on eBay According to documentation sourced from the state’s Open Public Records, the flagship state university has hired three cyber security companies that are currently testing the huge computer network used by the university, and looking for vulnerabilities. The firms that have been hired are: FishNet Security, a major information security company that is privately owned, headquartered in Kansas, and has offices in New York City. Level 3 Communications, a multinational telecommunications and Internet service provider based in Colorado. Imperva, a leading California-headquartered company that specialises in providing data and cyber security products to help combat cyber attack. For security reasons, campus officials remain mum about exactly what the three firms are doing, but confirm that they are budgeting between $2 and $3 million to ensure that the networks are not crippled again. Since the […]

Stone could spend 3 years behind bars after plea deal

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —The man accused of selling drugs to a 14-year-old girl who later overdosed was in court Monday.

Eric Stone was arrested back in 2013 as part of a police investigation following the death of Hanna Bruch.

Police said Bruch and two friends purchased drugs, and took them before attending a foam party at Expo New Mexico. Bruch collapsed during the party and later died.

On Monday, Stone agreed to a plea deal. He pleaded guilty to one count of attempted distribution of a controlled substance to a minor.

Stone’s attorney said Stone never admitted to selling drugs to the teens, and his client has been cooperative with police throughout the entire process.
