Bodycam footage suggests Jonathan Price shooting was unwarranted, affidavit says

first_imgKali9/iStockBy IVAN PEREIRA, MARC NATHANSON, and JAMES SCHOLZ, ABC News(WOLFE CITY, Texas) — The entire interaction between Texas police officer Shaun Lucas and the 31-year-old Black man he shot and killed Saturday was captured in police body camera footage, according to the arrest affidavit released by investigators Wednesday.Lucas, who is white, is facing murder charges following the incident at a gas station in Wolfe City. The investigation is being handled by the Texas Rangers.Lucas, 22, responded to a domestic dispute call at the gas station’s convenience store around 8:24 p.m. Saturday, according to the affidavit. Price’s family says Price was attempting to break up the dispute and didn’t threaten anyone.Based on the bodycam footage, which has not been released to the public, the affidavit says that when Lucas arrived at the scene, Price greeted him and came “very close to Officer Lucas, asking ‘You doing good?’ multiple times while extending his hand in a handshake gesture.”“Price apologized for broken glass on the ground and stated someone had tried to ‘wrap me up,’” the affidavit said.Lucas told investigators that he thought that Price was intoxicated and attempted to detain Price, but Price allegedly stated, “I can’t be detained,” the affidavit said.The officer then tried to detain Price “by grabbing his arm and using verbal commands,” but was unsuccessful, the affidavit said. He then produced his Taser, according to the affidavit.Lucas warned Price to comply or he would use his Taser, and when Price walked away, the officer fired the Taser, the affidavit said.While being tased, Price walked toward Lucas and tried to reach for the weapon, at which point the officer took out his service weapon and fired four times, according to the affidavit.Price died later that night at the hospital.The affidavit concluded that the officer “did then and there intentionally and knowingly cause the death of Price by discharging a firearm.”Lucas was arrested Monday night on murder charges and held on $1 million bond.A statement released Monday by the Texas Rangers said that “The preliminary investigation indicates that the actions of Officer Lucas were not objectionably reasonable.”On Tuesday, Lucas retained attorney Robert Rogers, who defended Dallas police officer Amber Guyger against similar charges last year.Guyger was convicted of murder after she accidentally entered the apartment of her upstairs neighbor, Botham Jean, and fatally shot him when she mistook him for an intruder, on Sept. 6, 2018. Rogers argued that Guyger perceived Jean as a deadly threat and thus committed no crime.In a statement on Saturday’s shooting, Rogers said, “Officer Lucas only discharged his weapon in accordance with Texas law when he was confronted with an aggressive assailant who was attempting to take his Taser.”“It’s just — this is just — I can’t wrap my brain around this,” Lucas’ stepfather told Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA Tuesday. “He’s a good kid. He’s devastated. He’s devastated for everybody involved.”The Hunt County District Attorney’s office said Tuesday that the investigation into the incident is continuing.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Half-time: Seattle Sounders 2 Chelsea 4

first_imgEden Hazard and Marko Marin scored on their debuts for Chelsea, whose pre-season trip to the United States got off to an action-packed start.Belgian winger Hazard scored one of three goals in the opening 13 minutes in Seattle, where Romelu Lukaku netted twice.The Blues took an early lead when striker Lukaku finished well after being set up by Josh McEachran.Hazard then tricked his way down the left and scored with the help of a deflection, before a mistake by McEachran enabled the Sounders to pull one back.The young midfielder’s wayward pass went straight to Fredy Montero, who fired past goalkeeper Hilario.And Montero struck again on 33 minutes when he collected Mauro Rosales’ ball forward and slotted home.But Chelsea hit back through Marin, who cut inside after receiving McEachran’s pass and saw his deflected shot deceive keeper Bryan Meredith.Marin then turned provider, playing in Lukaku who rounded Meredith and steered the ball into an unguarded net.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Four Ventilation Quotes That Will Take Your Breath Away

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESDesigning a Good Ventilation System GBA Encyclopedia: Ventilation ChoicesHRV or ERV?Ventilation Rates and Human HealthHow Much Fresh Air Does Your Home Need? Looking back over my last several articles, I see that I’ve been going off the deep end. Psychrometrics, hygrothermal analysis of double-stud walls, the physics of water in porous materials… That’s some heavy stuff. So this week I’m going light with some fun quotes about ventilation and indoor air quality.I wrote a series of articles on ventilation for the Journal of Light Construction a little while back and came across some great material in my research. The last quote below makes a point about indoor air quality with a graphic underwear metaphor. It’s from an 1893 book whose author was a medical doctor interested in ventilation to prevent diseases like phthisis (what we now call tuberculosis).The first quote is from a great article called The History of Ventilation and Temperature Control that appeared in the ASHRAE Journal in 1999. The author was discussing some of the mid-twentieth century research by Harvard scientist C.P. Yaglou on odor and ventilation rates. If you’re worried about the water-energy connection, you’ll be happy to know that “Only a 33% increase in ventilation was required for adults a week after a bath.” (John Janssen, in “The History of Ventilation and Temperature Control,” ASHRAE Journal, 1999.) Naturally, ventilation cannot solve all IAQ problems. Sometimes source control is the best method: “If there is a pile of manure in a space, do not try to remove the odor by ventilation. Remove the pile of manure.” (Max von Pettenkofer, 1858.)No list of ventilation quotes is complete without one that illustrates the immense power of fresh air: “There is nothing like the cure of fresh air for cases of bladder infection, paranoia, and Cartesian thinking.” (Rawi Hage.)And finally, here’s that quote about dirty underwear that’ll make you think twice before you inhale again: “Most civilized men and women are unwilling to put on underclothing that has just been taken off by another person or to put into their mouths articles of food or drink that have recently been in other peoples mouths but they take without hesitation into their lungs air that has just come from other people’s mouths and lungs or from close contact with their soiled clothing or bodies.” (John Shaw Billings, Ventilation and Heating, 1893.)Ventilation and indoor air quality are not only two of the most important topics in the world of building science and green building, but as you can see here, they’re also the source of some of the most interesting quotes.

The Blockchain Talent Shortage May Be Nearing Its End

first_imgBlockchain – Impending Revolution in Glob… If you’ve been wondering why the past few years have been ripe with discussion about the enormous potential of blockchain technology, yet we haven’t seen much investment or progression from major tech companies, you’re not alone—but the discrepancy may be coming from a massive talent shortage that has been plaguing the blockchain community.Without available, affordable developers, even the best conceptual projects are forced to stay on the backburner, and companies that might otherwise be incentivized to explore the new possibilities of the technology are forced to lay in wait. Thankfully, we may be nearing the end of this massive, industry-spanning shortage.Why the Shortage ExistedEven companies that don’t like the idea of cryptocurrency can make use of the blockchain in one way or another; they could use it to secure their communications, streamline transactions, or interconnect their users. But without the right people to design, implement, and oversee new blockchain systems, companies can’t make progress.These are just some of the reasons why that talent shortage has existed:Fringe status. Despite the near-limitless applications of the blockchain, blockchain tech has still existed mostly on the fringe for the past several years. While many developers took it seriously, they didn’t hold it in the same esteem as basic skills and languages like Python or C++. Its association with Bitcoin, and Bitcoin’s esoteric community, didn’t help in this regard. Developers haven’t wanted to invest months of effort in a technology that’s only useful to certain, niche projects. Instead, they want to broaden their skillsets and be as practical and far-reaching as possible.High costs. There are hundreds of highly-skilled, experienced blockchain developers out there. The problem is, they’re ridiculously expensive. They’re either making a ton of money working on one of the major cryptocurrencies in circulation, or they’re earning lucrative salaries working for major tech companies. With no one else to turn to, this has driven up the average cost of hiring a blockchain developer, making it extremely hard for small- to mid-sized companies to enter the game.High stakes. Blockchain developers tend to work with tech products with high stakes. They may involve financial transactions, or the exchange of sensitive information. That means they’ll either need to work with legal and security experts, or become legal and security experts in their own right. That scares away some promising blockchain developers, and increases the price of development even further for companies that would otherwise like to pursue these types of projects.Future uncertainty. Developers are also thinking about the long-term future. While some recognize blockchain as a fundamental technology for almost every industry in the next several years, others are thinking about the flaws inherent in the system; for example, while blockchain works extraordinarily well for a limited number of users, its cost-saving potential doesn’t scale when you start dealing with millions of transactions happening at once. These developers may recognize that the blockchain can’t be used for everything, and may soon be replaced with an even better ledger-based p2p system.Why It’s Coming to an EndFortunately, this talent shortage may soon be coming to an end. These are just some of the motivating factors:There are more ways to find blockchain developers. For starters, there are more ways to learn blockchain-related skills, and more ways to find people who have those skills. Platforms like Coursera are offering courses in blockchain basics, due partially to high demand, while platforms like CodementorX are allowing businesses to hire freelance blockchain developers with greater ease. Plus, the blockchain community is getting more robust, so it’s easier to find a recommendation or a referral if you’re in the market to hire a full-time blockchain developer.The blockchain has proven itself. As mentioned previously, the blockchain isn’t perfect. It isn’t as scalable as other technologies, and it may not last forever as our standard for secure, decentralized exchanges. But in the past several years, it has proven that it’s much, much more than just a gimmick for cryptocurrency. The blockchain has proven that it’s here to stay, and more companies have begun taking it seriously. That status has incentivized developers to invest more in their blockchain skills—or in some cases, switch career trajectories altogether.There are more bounty opportunities. Learning blockchain basics isn’t enough for most companies—they want people who have real, demonstrable experience in solving blockchain problems and/or building new systems. Thankfully, there are more opportunities to earn those credentials in the form of bounties and open problems. For example, for much of its history, Ethereum has offered a “bug bounty” program that has encouraged any developer with blockchain knowledge to find, recognize, and offer solutions for bugs in the system in exchange for a coin-based reward. Now that cryptocurrencies have become more valuable and more commonly accepted, these rewards are even more attractive.Developers see the demand. The high price tag associated with blockchain talent has drawn the most opportunistic developers to learn more about the career opportunities in the blockchain. A few years ago, investing time and energy into blockchain skills was a gamble that wasn’t sure to pay off, but now, it’s a path to a potential goldmine. If you have the skills and experience, there’s nothing keeping you from a high-paying job in this field. With thousands of developers in training, the talent shortage should gradually fade away over the next few years.Other Challenges on the HorizonSo with the talent shortage in the process of course-correcting, there should be a flood of companies investing more in blockchain and developing new projects, right? Unfortunately, there are a few more challenges to overcome before that can happen, including:The “everything at once” paradox. The blockchain offers a number of advantages over similar technologies—namely, it’s fast, it’s cheap, and it’s decentralized. The problem is, it can’t have all three of these qualities at once. For example, if you want a fast and decentralized platform, it’s not going to be cheap to develop. This makes the blockchain less maneuverable than some would like, and makes even the best problem-solving developers scratch their heads. At some point, you have to make a compromise and decide which weaknesses your system is going to have.Customers may not be ready for blockchain tech. The blockchain is more secure than many other technologies, but average, everyday customers may not be ready for the new requirements that come with it. For example, customers already have trouble remembering a basic username and password; in most blockchain applications, users are required to keep a signature cryptographic key—and it can’t be easily reset. This forces companies and/or blockchain developers to devise new ways to implement this technology without disturbing existing processes.Keeping up. Standards and features of blockchain technology are changing fast, as developers all over the world try to find solutions for blockchain’s inherent weaknesses (and ideally discover new approaches that forgo those weaknesses altogether). Just because you were experienced in the blockchain a few months ago doesn’t mean you’re up-to-date with the latest standards. Of course, this is a challenge for developers of almost any language or technology, but it’s still a hurdle for blockchain programmers (and the companies that hire them) to overcome before they can find success.The blockchain remains a highly promising technology for almost every industry, but it has some growing pains to get through before it reaches widespread adoption. Soon, the talent shortage will be a thing of the past, and there will be ample developers prepared to spend their time working on new applications for the technology. From there, it’s only a matter of time before its other hurdles get resolved. Why is Bitcoin Soaring?
