Backlash over police sniper training

(Escort Bursa) — North Miami Beach Police shot at suspect photographs in their training session

US police officers have been criticised for using mug shots of black suspects for target practice in Florida

The images used by North Miami Beach Police were discovered by a female soldier who used the firing range after a police training session

Sgt Valerie Deant recognised her brother as one of the target images according to NBC Miami

Police Chief J Scott Dennis said that his officers had used poor judgment but denied racial profiling

He told NBC that using real suspect images was an important part of training for his sniper team and that his officers had not violated any policies

There is no discipline forthcoming from the individuals who were involved with this he said

A police spokeswoman added on Friday that officers use targets of all races and genders in their training sessions

The six targets left behind by police were found last month by Sgt Deant a band member of the Florida Army National Guard

I was like why is my brother being used for target practice? she told NBC Miami on Friday

The photo of her brother Woody Deant had been taken after his arrest as a teenager for drag racing It had been shot several times

Mr Deant said he was speechless when he heard the news

Now Im being used as a target? Im not even living that life according to how they portrayed me as Im a father Im a husband Im a career man I work nine to five

Police Chief Dennis said they were very very concerned that one of the targets had been of a man who would be on the streets of North Miami Beach

He said that the department would no longer use images of suspects they had arrested

Nazi camp row over asylum homes

Germanys authorities are struggling to cope with growing numbers of asylum seekers

Refugee organisations have criticised plans to house asylum seekers in a former outpost of a Nazi concentration camp in western Germany

Authorities in Schwerte are planning to put up around 20 asylum seekers in barracks which once served as a satellite camp for Buchenwald

The authorities say they are under pressure to accommodate growing numbers of asylum seekers

But critics say the proposals are alarming and disconcerting

If the local authorities in Schwerte have their way asylum seekers will move later this week into one of the non-descript white barracks once overseen by the Buchenwald concentration camp where more than 50000 people died during World War Two

The barracks are situated on the grounds of a Nazi-era railway repair workshop and some 700 forced labourers worked there until the outpost was closed in 1945

Refugee groups say the plan as tasteless and historians describe the site as a place of exploitation oppression and violence

Local authority spokesman Carsten Morgenthal points out that communities in Germany are under increasing pressure to find accommodation for the growing stream of asylum seekers arriving in the country

In an interview with Der Spiegel website he said the building in question had never been used to accommodate forced labourers and had been put to various uses since the end of the war as a home for war wounded a storage site and more recently a kindergarten

Germany receives by far the highest number of asylum seekers within the EU expecting 200000 applications in 2014 alone Generally it is up to local authorities to find enough space

The increase in asylum numbers has also increased tensions in cities such as Dresden where a local hotel owner has reportedly pulled out of a deal with the authorities to put up more than 90 asylum seekers

German media say the owner had received threats via social media and anti-asylum slogans were sprayed on the hotels walls

Dresden is the home of the anti-Islamisation Pegida movement which has spawned weekly marches in several cities and prompted strong criticism from political leaders

England tighten grip over India

Joe Root moved to the brink of a century as England tightened their grip on the final Test against India and moved one step closer to winning the series.

Root’s superb unbeaten 92 helped the hosts recover from 229-5 to reach 385-7 on day two at The Oval, a lead of 237 over the embattled tourists.

Four quick wickets in the afternoon session, including England captain Alastair Cook for 79 and Gary Ballance for 64, gave India a glimmer of hope.

But the prolific Root, who scored 54 off the last 39 balls of his innings, along with Jos Buttler (45) and Chris Jordan (19 not out), punished a tiring and increasingly ragged side in the evening session to guide the hosts to a position of total supremacy.

England will expect to wrap up a third successive victory over the next two days to complete a 3-1 series triumph.

“We’ve put ourselves in a great position, but there’s still a long way to go,” Ballance told BBC Sport. “The pitch is getting better, so we have to have a good morning and then bowl well.

“It was disappointing to lose those wickets in the afternoon, but, earlier in the summer, we might have had a whole team collapse. Joe Root and Jos Buttler fought back well and ended up putting the pressure back on India.

“With three wickets left, a 300 lead is realistic. If we get that, we’d be very happy.”

On another dominant day for the hosts, there was disappointment for Sam Robson as he failed to convert his promising start on Friday evening into an innings of substance when he was bowled by Varun Aaron for 37.

Listen to Geoffrey review the day’s play on the TMS podcast

“I don’t think there’s much chance of it going past tomorrow. It depends what resistance is left in the India batsmen. England should bat on for a while – Joe Root can get a hundred. A lead of 250 would be ample. I hope India do show some fight, for the crowd as much as anything. I’m not convinced about it.”

The Middlesex opener has scored only 165 runs in seven innings in the series at an average of 23 and may struggle to retain his place when England set off for the West Indies for their next Test series in April.

While Ballance goes from strength to strength at number three, question marks also remain over the batting technique of Moeen Ali, who chopped Ravichandran Ashwin on to his stumps for 14.

Since his magnificent final-day hundred almost saved England the second Test against Sri Lanka, Moeen’s highest score in six innings is 39.

Cook may also look back on the day with mixed feelings as another chance to end his 31-innings wait for a hundred went begging.

He played fluently before lunch as he and Ballance drew England level with India’s first-innings 148 for the loss of only one wicket in dry, sunny conditions.

But the interval had a dramatic effect on Cook’s rhythm. After twice being dropped at slip – by Murali Vijay and Ajinkya Rahane – his luck ran out when a firm-footed prod at Aaron found the edge and was caught low by Vijay.

Cook’s dismissal sparked a mini-collapse in which England lost four wickets for 38 runs.

Ballance had looked imperious alongside his skipper, piercing the gaps on both sides of the wicket and reaching 50 for the sixth time in seven Tests with a ramp shot over the slips.

Joe Root is only the third England batsman to score a half-century in every Test of a five-match series, after Wally Hammond against South Africa in 1938-39 and Peter May against South Africa in 1955. John Edrich achieved the feat in a six-match series against Australia in 1970-71.

However, he popped Ashwin into the grateful hands of silly point, two balls later Ian Bell edged Ishant through to wicketkeeper Dhoni, and Moeen withdrew his bat too late and played on to Ashwin.

Crisis was averted by Root and Buttler in a partnership of 80 for the sixth wicket.

Both were judicious at first but upped the ante after tea. Buttler struck nine fours before he fell into a trap set by captain Dhoni and clipped Ishant to short midwicket.

The dismissal of Chris Woakes for a duck merely sounded the starting gun for a late acceleration as Root and Jordan added 67 off 62 balls in a raucous finale.

Root showed particular disdain for all-rounder Stuart Binny. His timing impeccable, the Yorkshire batsman twice cut through third man for four and when Binny corrected to a fuller length Root drove him down the ground.

Another day to forget for India was summed up when Jordan edged between second slip and gully for his second boundary to leave Dhoni shaking his head in dismay
