Eric Garner chokehold: Federal investigation launched

BBC

The US justice department is to launch a civil rights investigation into the death of Eric Garner, a black man who was placed in an apparent chokehold by a white New York police officer. The inquiry was announced by Attorney General Eric Holder after a grand jury decided against charging the officer. Crowds gathered in New York to protest against the grand jury’s decision. President Barack Obama said the case “speaks to larger issues” between minorities and law enforcement. The decision not to charge the officer came just a week after another grand jury in Missouri did not charge a…

Mort d’un Noir à New York: pas d’inculpation contre le policier

PHOTO REUTERS

Par BRIGITTE DUSSEAU Une semaine après Ferguson, un grand jury à New York a décidé mercredi de ne pas inculper un policier blanc impliqué dans la mort d’un Noir, au risque de relancer des manifestations qui semblaient marquer le pas. Témoignant de la volatilité de la situation, le maire de New York Bill de Blasio a annoncé qu’il se rendait immédiatement à Staten Island, l’arrondissement de New York où était mort Eric Garner, 43 ans, en juillet, et il a lancé un appel au calme. «Beaucoup dans la ville ne voulaient pas de la décision d’aujourd’hui. Mais New York a une…

NY policeman not indicted in chokehold death, spurring protests

A photo of Eric Garner is displayed at a makeshift memorial, where he died during an arrest in July, at the Staten Island borough of New York

A New York City grand jury has decided not to charge a police officer who killed an unarmed black man with a chokehold while trying to arrest him for illegally selling cigarettes, the local district attorney said on Wednesday. The deadly encounter in July on Staten Island, New York City’s smallest borough, was captured on video, which quickly spread over the Internet and fueled debate about how U.S. police use force, particularly against minorities. Last week, a grand jury in Missouri decided not to indict a white police officer in another racially charged killing of a black man. The decision…

States sue Obama administration on immigration

Demonstrators picket against the possible arrivals of undocumented migrants who may be processed at the Murrieta Border Patrol Station in California

A coalition of 17 U.S. states sued the Obama administration on Wednesday saying it acted illegally by issuing an executive order to ease the threat of deportation for millions of immigrants who are in the country without the proper documents. The case being led by Texas and filed at the Federal Court in the Southern District of Texas said the executive order announced by Obama last month violated constitutional limits on presidential powers. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, a Republican and the Texas governor-elect, said the lawsuit is not asking for monetary damages but is seeking to have the order…

Agence France-Presse HONG KONG Les fondateurs du mouvement prodémocratie à Hong Kong se sont rendus à la police mercredi, une reddition symbolique qui fait suite à leur appel à une fin des manifestations et à une participation au débat sur les réformes politiques. Après plus de deux mois d’occupation de plusieurs quartiers de l’ancienne colonie britannique passée sous tutelle chinoise, le mouvement n’a obtenu aucun résultat concret. Il est désormais partagé entre ceux qui veulent radicaliser l’action et ceux qui voudraient changer de forme de lutte. Benny Tai, Chan Kin-man et Chu Yiu-ming, fondateurs d’Occupy Central, mouvement prodémocratie de désobéissance…

Sessions: House GOP immigration response fails to meet test

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) is pushing back against House Republicans’ emerging plan to respond to President Obama’s immigration actions. “The Chairman of the Republican Party made a promise to America on executive amnesty: ‘We can’t allow it to happen and we won’t let it happen… everything we can do to stop it we will,’” Session said in a statement. “Unfortunately, the plan now being circulated in the House fails to meet that test.” The House is working on a plan for long-term funding for most of the government, with shorter-term funding for the Department of Homeland Security, which deals with immigration. There…
