Officials Charge 57 with Rioting, Looting Felonies at Tampa Protests

first_imgProsecutors in the Tampa area have charged 57 people with rioting and looting that occurred just after George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody sparked nationwide protests, officials announced on Friday.Hillsborough State Attorney Andrew Warren said in a statement that charges have been filed against dozens of people for allegedly ransacking stores, causing destruction and fighting with police officers in Tampa. The riots began on the night of May 30, less than a week after the death of George Floyd in Minnesota on Memorial Day.“These 57 people should not be confused with the large number of peaceful protesters in our community,” Warren said. “The defendants we’ve charged took advantage of the pain in our community and tried to turn it into a quick buck or set out to cause chaos. None of us will stand for that.”While most of the alleged offenses occurred more than a month ago, Warren explained that filing charges take time because prosecutors need to fully review all of the evidence for each case.The Hillsborough State Attorney’s Office has declined to prosecute peaceful protesters, although Warren added that the 57 people accused of felony crimes could face anywhere from five years to life in prison.The businesses that were affected include jewelry stores, clothing stores and convenience stores.last_img read more

MLBPA fires back at commissioner Rob Manfred’s payroll comments

first_imgThat appeared to most rile the players union. However, in his remarks to reporters Sunday, Manfred also said that MLB will use a pitch clock during spring training games. “Commissioner Manfred’s latest comments and his attempts to shift blame and distract from the main issues are unconstructive and misleading at best. Players’ eyes don’t deceive them, nor do fans’. … We’re operating in an environment in which an increasing number of clubs appear to be making little effort to improve their rosters, compete for a championship or justify the price of a ticket.”Statement from Executive Director Tony Clark:— MLBPA Communications (@MLBPA_News) February 18, 2019MLB has been criticized as multiple top-level free agents remain unsigned into mid-February, including stars Bryce Harper and Manny Machado. The Red Sox tallied 108 victories and won the World Series with MLB’s highest payroll last season. Related News Even that was met with some skepticism by Clark, though it was veiled in the context of player movement and pay:“Players have made a sincere attempt to engage with Clubs on their proposals to improve pace of play and enhance the game’s appeal to fans. At the same time, we have presented wide-ranging ideas that value substance over second and ensure the best players are on the field every day.”Manfred is scheduled to speak to reporters again Tuesday as part MLB’s Spring Training Media Day in Arizona. MLB commissioner Rob Manfred’s on Sunday said he rejects “the notion that (a team’s) payroll is a good measure” to determine that team’s effort or predict success.On Monday, the players union — in the context of another particularly slow-moving free-agent offseason — fired back with a statement by MLBPA executive director Tony Clark, who wrote, in part: MLB commissioner Rob Manfred addresses pitch clock, payroll concernslast_img read more

Russell stars but Thunder lose again

first_imgSYDNEY, Australia (CMC):Not even a fine all-round effort from West Indies star Andre Russell was enough to save Sydney Thunder from crashing to a 30-run defeat to Perth Scorchers, in the Australian Big Bash here yesterday.Chasing 176 for victory at the Sydney Showground Stadium, Thunder slumped to 17 for two in the third over before crawling to 145 for nine off their 20 overs.The 27-year-old Russell unfurled a whirlwind 42 off 20 deliveries with five sixes but wickets continued to fall as Thunder slid to their third straight loss, leaving them fourth in the BBL standings.With their victory, Scorchers moved to the top of the standings on eight points along with Adelaide Strikers but with a superior net run rate.Sent in, Scorchers recovered from a position of one run for two wickets in the second over to rally to 175 for five off 20 overs.The revival came through Cameron Bancroft who struck 72 off 53 balls in anchoring two key stands. He first put on 63 for the third wicket with Shaun Marsh, who hit 28 from 22 balls and a further 105 for the third wicket with Ashton Agar, who blasted 68 off 34 deliveries.Pacer Russell, who knocked over Michael Klinger with the third ball of the game without a run on the board, returned to claim Bancroft in the penultimate over and end with two for 31 from four overs.In reply, Thunder lost South African Jacques Kallis (7) and Aiden Blizzard (7) cheaply to left-arm seamer Jason Behrendorff before Russell came to their rescue with his cameo.RUNRATEHis first nine deliveries yielded eight runs without a single boundary, but with the required run rate jumping to 13 at the end of the 11th over, Russell launched an all-out assault.He twice cleared the ropes with left-arm spinner Brad Hogg in the 12th over, which went for 16 runs, and then smashed leg-side sixes off English left-arm seamer David Willey in the next over, which also cost 16 runs.It took the return Behrendorff and a stunning catch from Joel Paris at fine leg to account for Russell in the 14th over with the score on 97 for five.Once he departed, the innings lost momentum, with four more wickets falling for the addition of just 40 runs.last_img read more
