Buffalo officers quit the special team after 2 officers were suspended for allegedly pushing 75 years to the ground



Buffalo officers quit the special team after 2 officers were suspended for allegedly pushing 75 years to the ground

The ongoing investigation into the incident called Governor Andrew Cuomo “is completely unjustified and very embarrassing.” The man is seriously injured.

Thursday’s demonstration video showed a row of officers walking towards the man and two pushing him. His head bled onto the sidewalk as officers walked past him, some staring at him.

The officers resigned from the emergency department but not from the police, according to police.

“Fifty-seven resigned in disgust because of the treatment of their two members, who only carried out orders,” Buffalo Police Association President John Evans told WGRZ on Friday. WKBW also reported the resignation news.

The man’s identity, Martin Gugino, was confirmed by Cuomo’s office. Gugino was hospitalized in a serious but stable condition, authorities said.

CNN has contacted the police and association for further comments. New York State Police said they were sending additional officers to the city after resignation.

Demonstrators in Niagara Square, like those throughout the country, called for racial justice after the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody.

Based on the initial video, police issued a statement saying Gugino stumbled and fell, police spokesman Mike DeGeorge told CNN.

After more videos were available, the police changed the statement, and Buffalo Police Commissioner Byron Lockwood suspended the officers without paying and opened an investigation, he said.

“The department moved quickly” and “corrected” the information, DeGeorge said.

Mayor Byron Brown called the incident “disappointing” and said that his thoughts were supportive Gugino.

Prosecutors are investigating, the Erie District Prosecutors’ Office tweeted.

Gugino suffered a head injury and was unable to give a statement to investigators late Thursday, the tweet said.

Cuomo said officers must be fired and prosecutors must move “fairly but quickly.”

“When I saw the video, my stomach hurt,” Cuomo said. “I would encourage the district attorney not to do what happened in Minneapolis, where the delay itself caused problems,” the governor said, adding, “People don’t want to be vague. They are angry and want answers.”

Earlier on Twitter, he said, “This incident is completely unjustified and is truly embarrassing … Police Officers must enforce – NOT ABUSE – law.”

Cuomo said he spoke with Gugino.

“Thank God he’s still alive,” Cuomo said at his daily press conference in Albany. “You saw the video, and it disturbed your basic sense of politeness and humanity.”

Cuomo also called for an attack on police officers, saying, “You have a police incident being hit with a brick on the head. Who are we?”

Elizabeth Hartfield and Laura Dolan from CNN contributed to this report.

September, Holiday Month for the Deaf – Portuguese (Brazil)



Mutirão Opens To Negotiation Of Individuals' Overdue Debts - Português (Brazil)

September is a very important and visible month for deaf people, with three dates that raise awareness and celebrate achievements that are part of the entire community’s trajectory and struggle. These are: – International Sign Language Day, September 23; – Day of the Deaf, 26 September; and Libra National Interpreter and Translator Day on September 30th. With a focus on the deaf community, the Department of Education is promoting several initiatives in this area.

The first is aimed at changing the scenario of educational and language policy based only on the inclusive perspective of including a deaf student in the school environment without guaranteeing procedures that enhance accessibility in his education. The National Guidelines for Bilingual Education for the Deaf integrate all stages of basic education and are based on the promotion of bilingual curricula and pedagogical practices for the deaf: Brazilian Sign Language (Libras) and written Portuguese.

Through the Department of Special Education, the MEC coordinates with interested municipalities the construction, renovation or expansion of bilingual schools for the deaf. To date, 11 locations in Brazil have shown interest in the project. To complement this phase, the Libras National Textbook Program (PNLD) provides accessible formats to deaf students and public school teachers of basic education in the country.

In the academic world, in partnership with universities, advanced training courses are offered for teachers, managers and professionals who want to work with bilingual education for the deaf. Thanks to the projects of various institutions, there are currently 3,520 vacancies for teaching the deaf.

Another important date: The National Institute for Education for the Deaf (Ines) turns 165 on the same Libra and the Deaf Day, September 26th. Within the structure of the Ministry of Education, the Institute stands out as a national reference in the field of deafness, necessary to support the formulation of public policies, and then for their implementation in the field. The Institute works to promote education for deaf children, youth and adults.

Sarah’s complaint comes after the league filed a complaint against a Manchester United player for aggression against Jake in the Manchester team’s match against Everton on April 9 last season in the Premier League. After an unsuccessful result, the Portuguese dropped a fan’s mobile phone on the way to the locker room.

According to Sarah, she and her son once again became victims of offenses in social networks after the announcement of the complaint against the attacker.

“People are following me, saying that I am rebelling again, but I didn’t know anything about it. The case should have been heard six months ago. My son talks every day about what happened to him. He still hasn’t returned his phone,” he said.

Marseille in California.  ″Where the Portuguese is, there is Portugal″

“You are the future,” President Marcelo Rebelo de Souza told a three-year-old girl dressed in traditional Portuguese clothing who came out to greet him on the podium where he spoke at Artesia Portuguese Salon. The city, located on the outskirts of Los Angeles, has not hosted the President of the Portuguese Republic since 1989. This weekend, he did it with pomp and the setting of an ornate Portuguese-American community bursting with pride.

“We have never lost the honor and responsibility of being representatives of this beautiful flag,” said Jimmy Enes, a member of Artesia DES, a Portuguese descendant, in a welcoming speech delivered in perfect Portuguese. “When we are asked who we are, we always answer”i am portuguese“and not”Portuguese-American“or ‘Portuguese American’,” he said. “That’s why we’re trying step by step to protect our heritage on the outskirts of Los Angeles, one of the greatest cities in the world.”
