North Carolina exhibit honors women in the military
10/19/2019 1:37pm

The father of an Army captain is putting the spotlight on women in the military ... past and present.Emmett Casciato, curator of the Veterans History Museum of the Carolinas, has a daughter who was appointed to West Point Army Academy and then served five years with the Army as a captain. For one of those five years, Abby Casciato was deployed to Afghanistan.During the last three years, Casciato collected women&39s uniforms dating to World War II and turned the Brevard museum&39s conference room into a new exhibit featuring those uniforms.Casciato put out a call to the community to send 8x10 photos of loved ones who served, so he could include them in the exhibit. The result was a 30-foot wall covered in pictures of women from all branches of the military and all time periods dating to World War I.Also included in this exhibit will be three lectures by the following women:Nov. 7: U.S. Navy Captain Ret. Maureen Copelof: History of Women in the Military Nov. 14: U.S. Navy Medical Officer Recruiter Lt.

Mike Posner finishes his six-month trek across United States
10/19/2019 1:28pm

You probably think youre cooler than him. But youre not.Mike Posner has just crossed the entire United States, coast to coast -- on foot.The singer-songwriter trekked 2,851 miles over the course of six months, starting in Asbury Park, New Jersey, on April 15 and ending in Venice Beach, California, on Friday.My name is Mike Posner and I walked across America, Posner said on Twitter. Keep Going.Posner celebrated the end of his journey by jumping into the Pacific Ocean and enjoying a well-deserved massage on the beach.I dont even know what this experience means in the context of my life yet, Posner said in a Facebook post near the end of his journey. I do know that I am not the same person I was when I started. Im harder. Im more authentic. Im more real. Im more myself. Thats the only trophy I need.On his website, Posner said the journey had a three-part mission: to enjoy my life and help others enjoy theirs, be as authentic to other people as possible, and help others to experience transcendence.He also aimed to spend more time listening to people and invited others to participate -- even for just a mile or two.When he wasnt walking, he meditated and did a lot of yoga. Posner documented the experience on social media.Although he kept a positive attitude through most of the trek, it wasnt easy. In fact, it almost cost him his life.In August, Posner had to be airlifted to a Colorado hospital after being bitten by a rattlesnake. It took several weeks of rehabilitation before he could continue his journey.On October 9, Posner released a 16-track mixtape titled Keep Going, his mantra during the journey, The tape features other artists, including Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign and Logic.I created this project, these songs and these affirmations to remind myself who I am when things get hard. I hope they can provide you the same strength, he said at the beginning of the album.

'Murder Kroger' undergoes major rehab
10/19/2019 1:19pm

Nothing can keep Damon Parker from shopping at this citys newest Kroger, not even the awful memory of a fatal shooting he witnessed there 28 years ago.Parker, his cousin Stephanie Buffington and their friend Cynthia Prioleau were nearly inside the Atlanta supermarket when a gunman in a car approached and began shooting in broad daylight.Prioleau, 25, was the only person hit. She died that day. Her killer has not been found. Since then, at least two more unrelated killings and a series of assaults have gone down at the Kroger and a neighboring apartment complex, the Atlanta Police Department told CNN.The violence paved the way for a nickname that some directly affected by the crimes hope will vanish as the store reopens this October after a top-to-bottom rebuild: Murder Kroger.While its not unusual for a business local reputation to earn it an informal moniker, the proliferation of Murder Kroger on T-shirts, stickers and even in song lyrics has been particularly painful for those with personal ties to the attacks.Each repetition of the eerie phrase can gnaw at grief thats still quite raw, even if thats not the intention.For those not connected to the killings and attacks, the phrase may just be a throwaway punchline. It also, more deeply, could reflect a communitys use of humor to cope with tragedy or, conversely, reveal a society thats grown numb to the emotional pain that stems from too-common violence, experts told CNN.At this point Im desensitized to it, Parker said of his gut reaction to the nonchalant way some people mention Murder Kroger. Still, he wishes the nickname would disappear.Take some kind of responsibility, dont treat it like its some kind of trivial thing, he said. Just think about any tragedy weve seen since 2016 and anyone who has trivialized it in public. The Orlando nightclub shooting and the shooting at a Walmart in El Paso: Would you make a T-shirt for thatA vigil for a doomed grocery siteBy the time Joshua Richey, a construction worker, was killed in 2015 in the Krogers parking lot by two men trying to break into his truck, the lore of Murder Kroger was near its zenith.The Atlanta-based band Attractive Eighties Women in 2007 recorded a song titled Murder Kroger. Its lyrics include: Its a grocery store with a deadly twist / Youll get shot in the head for your shopping list / Murder Kroger / its the worst place to shop in all of Atlanta / you could lose your life over 12 pack of Fanta.During Conan OBriens 2010 The Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour, members of his crew stopped by the Kroger for a blog post on TeamCoco.And on Wikipedia, the Murder Kroger page since mid-2015 has collected more than 250,000 page views and 70 edits.When the Cincinnati-based grocery chain owner announced in October 2016 it would shutter the location to make way for 725 Ponce, a huge, multipurpose development with a new 65,000-square-foot Kroger store, two people refused to let it go quietly.Rachel Bowen and Rowyn Hirsch organized a satiric candlelight vigil held in the grocerys parking lot a day before it closed. Roughly 50 people attended. A moment of silence was held for victims of crimes there. Some people lit candles. Others wore Murder Kroger T-shirts, while one woman sported a Kroger paper bag with the word murder written on it in a blood-like font.I had just turned 19 at the time and had started the event as a sort of joke with a friend because I, not unlike a lot of people, use humor to cope with tragic things, Hirsch told CNN. Suddenly, our joke had turned into a news story.We had people who knew the original victim reaching out and telling us that we were being insensitive, sending us threatening messages and calling us names, she said. Mind you, we were just the face of it. The whole city had been calling it Murder Kroger for years. It all was a bit overwhelming.Parker did not find the vigils atmosphere respectful. The event inspired him to share his experience at the store in the story, Surviving Murder Kroger, published the following month.It was a party, he said. Everything was mockery. There was nothing serious about the whole thing.The roots of Atlantas fascinationSocial and economic factors might explain the disconnect between some of those who attended the vigil and the victims loved ones, said Sarah Cook, a psychology professor at Georgia State University GSU, which has a downtown campus about three miles from the Kroger.These sorts of differences may have allowed vigil attendees to put social distance between themselves and the victims and thus to ignore the costs or consequences of the event for their survivors, Cook told CNN.The event and the nickname that inspired it may also mirror the effects of violence in America, GSUs John Burrison, an English professor who studies folklore, told CNN in an email.I think Murder Kroger also reflects a fascination with crime and violence as evidenced by the number of cop shows on commercial TV, and in folklore, the large number of American murder ballads. I wouldnt call that fascination uniquely American, but ours is certainly a violent country compared with many others, Burrison said in an email.For Buffington, who witnessed Prioleaus shooting, the Murder Kroger fascination has a simpler explanation: The moniker and its trappings exemplify peoples very morbid minds, she said.Murder should never be a joke. What if it was one of their loved ones she said. These individuals are profiting financially off the murder of someones love one.The rise of BeltLine KrogerThe new Kroger reopened on October 16 along the Atlanta BeltLine, a popular multiuse trail. It features a large outdoor seating area, a Starbucks and a BBQ restaurant. Local headlines dubbed the store Beltline Kroger, while others refused to let Murder Kroger die.The store signifies Krogers ongoing commitment to the community and the ongoing economic prosperity of Atlanta, Kroger spokeswoman Kristal Howard told CNN. The City of Atlanta, community leaders, residents and businesses have come together to create and nurture a very special and safe place for residents and visitors.She declined to comment on the stores long-held nickname.A lot has changed in Atlanta since the first killing at Kroger in 1991, when Fulton County recorded 231 murders, data from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation show. In 2017, that tally was 124.As the murder rate has dropped across the county, the BeltLines Eastside Trail, along which the new Kroger sits, has transformed neighborhoods around it into some of the most desirable and pricey places to live in the city thanks to millions sunk into commercial development.One of the many patrons who will visit the new Kroger is Parker, now 47, who plans to frequent it with his two goddaughters.The various Murder Kroger paraphernalia dont bother him as much as they used to. Still, his communitys tacit acceptance of the stores violent characterization still does.Theres nothing they can do at this point, Parker said. Theyve let it go on too long. Its kind of too late. Its something that should have been addressed a long time ago.

Florida law stopping felons from voting temporarily halted
10/19/2019 12:58pm

A federal judge issued a ruling Friday temporarily blocking a Republican-backed Florida law that barred some felons from voting because of their inability to pay fines and other legal debts.The ruling by U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle could pave the way for thousands of felons who were denied the right to vote to regain the ability to cast ballots unless the state gets a higher court to intervene or if Hinkle later upholds the constitutionality of the state law.At issue is whether Florida lawmakers can require released felons to first pay all outstanding fines, restitution and other legal debts before they can regain the right to vote under last years voter-approved Amendment 4.Hinkle was particularly sympathetic to arguments made by lawyers representing disenfranchised felons who asserted that the financial requirement was akin to a poll tax.With Floridas history of close races, the case is not an inconsequential one. Democrats and Republicans alike have sought to develop an advantage at the ballot box. With next years high-stakes presidential election looming, Florida will likely again be an intensely fought battleground.Studies have shown disenfranchisement tends to take more votes from Democratic candidates, but it is unclear which party reenfranchised felons are more likely to support in Florida.While Hinkle appeared to recognize the states authority to stipulate that fines and other debts must be paid before a criminal sentence can be considered completed, he said, The last word will belong to the Florida Supreme Court.The states high court could very well entertain that question when it considers the law as part of a request by Gov. Ron DeSantis for an advisory opinion.Hinkle said that was not an issue that he was ready to answer as part of his ruling for a temporary injunction against the state.Both sides are expected to begin pleading their full case before Hinkle in April. Even then, the case could be far from final because of appeals.In his opinion, Hinkle said a felons inability to pay raises constitutional questions, noting that about 80 of the states felons have unpaid financial obligations imposed by courts during sentencing.As many as 1.4 million felons who have completed their sentences regained voting privileges under a constitutional amendment overwhelmingly passed by voters last fall. But the Republican-controlledLegislature earlier this year passed a bill later signed by DeSantis stipulating that felons must pay all fines, restitution and other financial obligations to complete their sentences.Both sides found victory in Hinkles ruling.Todays ruling affirms the governors consistent position that convicted felons should be held responsible for paying applicable restitution, fees and fines while also recognizing the need to provide an avenue for individuals unable to pay back their debts as a result of true financial hardship, Helen Aguirre Ferre, the governors spokeswoman, said in an email.She said the governor would consider options on addressing a pathway for those who are indigent and unable to address their outstanding financial obligations.The American Civil Liberties Union, ACLU of Florida, NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fundand Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law were in court earlier this month seeking the preliminary injunction, which was granted in part Friday by Hinkle.The case was filed on behalf of a group of Floridians who are seeking to have their voting rights reinstated.The court held that the right to vote cannot be denied based on a persons inability to pay fines and fees. This ruling recognizes the gravity of elected officials trying to circumvent Amendment 4 to create voting roadblocks based on wealth, said Julie Ebenstein, an attorney with the ACLUs Voting Rights Project.While the ruling applies to the 10 individuals challenging the law, it could have broader implications as elections officials set up mechanisms to make it easier for other felons unable to pay their legal debts to vote.Secretary of State Laurel Lee said her department was reviewing the order but would comply with the ruling and provide guidance to local elections officials.

Demolition of New Orleans cranes expected Saturday
10/19/2019 12:49pm

The implosion of two cranes at the Hard Rock Hotel in New Orleans, which partially collapsed during construction, was expected Saturday after a delay due to a tropical storm, officials said.The precise time after noon local time was to be determined, the citys emergency preparedness agency said via Twitter.We will provide updates with ample notice as soon as possible... Stay away from the area, NOLA Ready tweeted.Saturday evenings Krewe of Boo event downtown, the citys official Halloween parade, was canceled because of the demolition, officials said.Crews had hoped to take the cranes down Friday evening, said New Orleans Fire Chief Tim McConnell. The wind is our biggest problem, he said.Tropical Storm Nestor was tracking east and has potential to bring 35 mph winds, said Collin Arnold, director of the citys Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness. Mayor LaToya Cantrell issued a state of emergency.Arnold said officials will need the publics cooperation during the demolition because people will want to watch, but he urged against it.If you are in line of sight of this, youre too close, Arnold said.Door-knocking and clearing the evacuation area will begin four hours before demolition, McConnell said.Experts plan to strategically place explosives onto the cranes, hoping the debris lands in a certain area, avoiding major gas and power lines, according to McConnell.Two bodies remain in the rubblePortions of the Hard Rock Hotel collapsed last Saturday. More than 100 construction workers were there, according to one of the construction companies.Video footage showed workers emerging from a giant cloud of dust after the upper floors collapsed and debris filled the street.At least two people were killed and 30 hospitalized, authorities said. All but one of the injured have been discharged.Cantrell said Friday she attended the funeral of Anthony Magrette, 49, whose body was removed from the site on Sunday. Cantrell emphasized the importance of finding and removing the two bodies authorities believe are still in the rubble.Documents and paperwork from the offices of contractors in the hotel have been collected and put in storage as evidence, Cantrell said.10 injured in the collapse are suing the construction companiesTen people who were injured sued Thursday.The lawsuit accuses the construction companies of failing to take reasonable care in planning, assessing, and monitoring the construction of the collapsed structure. It also claims that it was apparent that the structural supports at the building were inadequate to support the weight of the concrete slabs on the upper floors.The primary goal is to get to the bottom of exactly what happened, and make sure that nothing like this ever happens again, an attorney for the plaintiffs said.CNNs Jamiel Lynch contributed to this report.

Police Aide’s Alleged Racial Slur Puts DUI Cases in Jeopardy
10/19/2019 9:41am

Hundreds of DUI cases could now be in jeopardy after a Miami-Dade police aide was accused of making a racial slur about a black sergeant who was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence.Public service aide Pablo Espinoza allegedly directed the racial comment toward an attorney about his client Tracy Moore, who is also a Miami-Dade Schools police sergeant.Defense attorney Michael Catalano says Espinoza grabbed him by the arm, laughed and said, hey you know your client really looks like a monkey sitting there.I do not appreciate that and Im not happy about it, Catalano said. My client is livid.Catalano says Sgt. Moore was arrested for driving under the influence in June and was the target of Espinozas comments. He also says he provided text messages that show Espinoza apologizing for making the alleged racist comments.Miami-Dade Police released a statement saying that Espinoza has been re-assigned to administrative duties pending the outcome of an internal investigation into the alleged conduct.Sgt. Moores charges were recently upgraded to include felony child endangerment because her kids were in the car at the time of her arrest. The school district has plans to begin the process to fire her, but her attorney is fighting the charges.Catalano says the breathalyzer test was off due to her undergoing gastric bypass surgery, and that two police officers stated under oath that she was not impaired.Miami-Dade Police released a statement saying that Espinoza has been re-assigned to administrative duties pending the outcome of an internal investigation into the alleged conduct.Espinozas duties include testifying in DUI hearings about the accuracy and maintenance of police breathalyzer machines used to arrest impaired drivers.It was not made clear exactly how many DUI cases could be affected, including Sgt. Moores.
