Live Update-US ex-officer Kim Potter charged over killing https://lovetoreads.com/live-update-us-ex-officer-kim-potter-charged-over-killing/ https://lovetoreads.com/live-update-us-ex-officer-kim-potter-charged-over-killing/#respond Thu, 15 Apr 2021 08:00:20 +0000 https://lovetoreads.com/live-update-us-ex-officer-kim-potter-charged-over-killing/ US ex-officer Kim Potter charged over killing

A US white former police officer who shot dead a black motorist in Minnesota has been charged with second-degree manslaughter, prosecutors say.

Kim Potter was arrested and later released on $100,000 (£72,000) bail.

Police say Mrs Potter shot Daunte Wright accidentally, having mistakenly drawn her gun instead of her Taser.

Responding to the charges, the Wright family’s lawyer Ben Crump said the killing was an “intentional, deliberate, and unlawful use of force”.

Both Mrs Potter and local police chief Tim Gannon have resigned. The killing has sparked clashes between police and protesters in Brooklyn Center – a suburb of Minneapolis – and late on Wednesday, several hundred demonstrators again defied a curfew to gather outside police headquarters.

As on previous nights, protesters threw bottles and other projectiles at police who responded with stun grenades and pepper spray.

Minneapolis is already on edge amid the trial of a white ex-police officer accused of murdering African-American George Floyd.

Minnesota’s Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) said Mrs Potter was taken into custody on Wednesday morning. She was booked into Hennepin County Jail on probable cause second-degree manslaughter before bail was posted.

In Minnesota state law, a person can be found guilty of second-degree manslaughter if they can be proven to have shown culpable negligence whereby they create an unreasonable risk and “consciously take chances of causing death or great bodily harm” to someone else.

Mrs Potter is due to make her first court appearance on Thursday.

The charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $20,000 (£14,500) fine. Prosecutors must show that Mrs Potter was “culpably negligent” and took an “unreasonable risk” in her actions, Reuters reported.

At a news conference, Brooklyn Center Mayor Mike Elliott called for people to protest peacefully.

“With the news of the decision to charge the former Brooklyn Center police officer with manslaughter comes a prolonged period of continued grieving, hurt and understandable anger,” he said.

“Our task as a city and as a leadership is to allow for the expression of those very legitimate voices and to also create a pathway forward toward healing and renewal of our stability and strength as a community.”

At the scene

Tara McKelvey, BBC News, Minneapolis

For days outside the police station in Brooklyn Center, activists have stamped their feet to ward off the cold, and kept a vigil on the sidewalk.

For them, the news that the former officer, Kimberly Potter, will be charged with manslaughter, has been a positive development. Mrs Potter says that she mistakenly brandished a gun, instead of a Taser, killing Duante Wright.

Earlier in the week, the protesters had made dark jokes about Tasers and guns, pointing out that they look and feel distinct: “They’re different colours,” said one activist, disgusted, as he spoke with a friend.

Like others who stood outside the police department, they were both angry that Mrs Potter was allowed to resign, saying that she should have been fired.

“If I don’t do my job, I get fired,” said another protester. “If I kill someone, I get fired.”

What has the family said?

In a statement, lawyer Mr Crump said “no conviction can give the Wright family their loved one back”.

“A 26-year veteran of the force knows the difference between a Taser and a firearm. Kim Potter executed Daunte for what amounts to no more than a minor traffic infraction and a misdemeanour warrant,” he said.

On Tuesday the families of Mr Wright and Mr Floyd came together to demand an end to the killing of unarmed black Americans by police.

“The world is traumatised watching another African-American man being slain,” Floyd’s brother Philonise Floyd said.

On Monday, Police Chief Gannon said the shooting of Mr Wright – who had a one-year-old son – appeared to be an “accidental discharge” after Mrs Potter mistook her service pistol for a stun gun.

But the families have rejected the explanation.

Mr Wright’s aunt Naisha said: “I watched that video like everybody else watched that video. That woman held that gun in front of her a long damn time.”

What led up to the shooting?

Daunte Wright was pulled over for an expired tag on his car licence plate. Family members say he was racially profiled.

Bodycam footage showed Mr Wright fleeing from officers after they told him he was being arrested for an outstanding warrant.

As Mr Wright re-enters his car, Mrs Potter is heard shouting “Taser” several times before firing a shot.

Mr Wright’s killing has sparked protests

Mr Wright’s mother told reporters her son had called her after he was pulled over and that she had offered to give insurance details to police over the phone.

She said she heard police order him to get out of the vehicle. There was a scuffling sound and an officer told him to hang up the phone.

When she was eventually able to call back, his girlfriend answered and told her he had been shot.

“She pointed the phone toward the driver’s seat and my son was laying there, unresponsive,” she said in tears.

“That was the last time that I’ve seen my son.”

Live Updates –Can Medical Alexas Make Us Healthier? https://lovetoreads.com/live-updates-can-medical-alexas-make-us-healthier/ https://lovetoreads.com/live-updates-can-medical-alexas-make-us-healthier/#respond Wed, 14 Apr 2021 13:33:22 +0000 https://lovetoreads.com/live-updates-can-medical-alexas-make-us-healthier/ Can Medical Alexas Make Us Healthier?

This article is part of the On Tech newsletter. You can sign up here to receive it weekdays.

Are voice recognition technologies like Alexa helpful in medicine or are they hogwash? For now, the short answer is a little of both.

Microsoft on Monday said that it would spend roughly $16 billion to buy Nuance Communications, whose speech transcription software is used in health care.

Microsoft as well as other tech companies like Google and Amazon have big ambitions to transform the industry with artificial intelligence technologies, including in voice recognition programs and efforts to identify signs of illness and disease.

The big hope of technology in medicine is that it can help make us healthier and improve America’s expensive and often ineffective and unjust health care system. The message that I have heard from medical experts is that there’s potential there, but there is also a lot of hot air.

The hope of medical Alexas:

For years, doctors have used Nuance’s transcription software to speak notes about patients and convert them into text for medical records. In theory, that frees doctors from having to do paperwork so they can spend more time treating us.

Nuance and other tech and health care providers want to do much more with our voices. One idea is that microphones might record (with permission) interactions between physicians and patients and log the relevant details into medical files — without much human involvement. Computers would also be smart enough to order any necessary tests and handle billing.

This sounds cool and perhaps a little creepy. These ideas are still under development, and it’s not clear how well these medical Alexas would work. But Dr. Eric J. Topol, a professor of molecular medicine at Scripps Research and the author of several books on technology in medicine, told me that voice recognition systems are one of the most consequential uses of artificial intelligence in health care, at least in the short term.

At Cedars-Sinai, a health system in Southern California, most hospital rooms have been outfitted with voice activated devices, said Darren Dworkin, the organization’s chief information officer. For now, the devices are mostly used for relatively mundane interactions, such as a nurse asking a device to show a patient a video on preventing dangerous falls.

Dworkin said that he was most optimistic about using voice and other technologies to automate administrative work, such as authorizing insurance for medical treatments and sending tailored text messages to patients.

Dworkin said that those uses of technology might not be what many considered a wow factor, but that busywork was a huge cost and challenge in health care.

“Not everything has to be state of the art,” Dworkin said. “Don’t let the simple stuff pass you by.” (Another vote for the importance of boring technology!)

Where hope meets harsh reality:

Just about every technology used in health care — and many other fields — promises to reduce administrative work and costs. And yet, health care expenses and bureaucracy in the United States mostly continue to go up.

Dr. Dhruv Khullar, a physician and assistant professor of health policy and economics at Weill Cornell Medicine, said that he was optimistic that voice tech and artificial intelligence could reduce administrative burdens and help patients. But he said that his hope was not yet backed by rigorous proof.

“There is not a lot of evidence at this point that A.I. reduces costs or improves health outcomes,” Dr. Khullar told me. (I borrowed the “medical Alexas” line from him.)

I asked these health experts an overarching question: What role should technology play in tackling the root problems of American health care?

They largely agreed that advances in technology could help reduce costs and improve the quality of service in our health care system, but that it was not a silver bullet for our biggest problems.

“I would say, it’s part of the answer but not a large part of it,” Dr. Khullar said.

(And read more from DealBook: How has Microsoft mostly avoided the government’s antitrust attention? My answer: Microsoft’s essential technology is mostly dull. That is a good thing.)


Your Lead

Last week, I pointed to a terrific article about Indians adapting to expensive mobile phone calls by coming up with new ways to communicate that involved hanging up mid-ring. An On Tech reader, Morris Fried of Somerset, N.J., wrote to us about his family’s missed call communications system from decades ago:

Your note about using missed calls for communications in India stirred old memories of the same technique in this country. (I will be 75 next month.)

When I was a child, we would drive back home to Philadelphia after visiting my grandmother in Brooklyn. My mother would then call the operator and request a person-to-person long distance call to her own name at my grandmother’s phone number.

My grandmother would answer the phone and tell the operator that my mother was not there. My mother thereby succeeded in informing her mother that we had arrived home safely without incurring the then not-insignificant expense to us of a long distance telephone call.


“If you’ve always wanted your own haunted Victorian child in the body of a small dog that hates men and children …” I laugh-cried at this extremely detailed description of Prancer on Facebook and his MANY peculiar habits, posted by a New Jersey pet adoption league.

Live Update-Man fleeing police crashes, wedges Maserati under freeway https://lovetoreads.com/live-update-man-fleeing-police-crashes-wedges-maserati-under-freeway/ https://lovetoreads.com/live-update-man-fleeing-police-crashes-wedges-maserati-under-freeway/#respond Tue, 13 Apr 2021 22:38:16 +0000 https://lovetoreads.com/live-update-man-fleeing-police-crashes-wedges-maserati-under-freeway/ Man fleeing police crashes, wedges Maserati under freeway

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — A man fleeing the California Highway Patrol totaled his girlfriend’s Maserati SUV after he careened up an embankment and slammed into the underside of an overpass, wedging the vehicle under a freeway in Oakland, authorities said Tuesday.

“The driver is lucky to be alive. The owner of the Maserati … not so lucky,” the CHP said in a social media post that included photos of the mangled luxury vehicle.

Police say the 32-year-old man was speeding on a highway Monday when a CHP officer tried to stop him. He accelerated to over 100 mph (160 kph) and then exited the freeway, veering over a curve, up the embankment and ending up just beneath the freeway, Officer David Arias, a spokesman for the CHP in Oakland, said Tuesday.

The man, who was alone, complained of pain and was taken to a hospital, Arias said.

“It was a miracle he didn’t get more injuries because the whole area where his head would have been caved in. He must have ducked or something,” he said.

Arias said the man faces charges for reckless evading.

Live Updates –Larry Ellison bought an $80 million mansion in Palm Beach, Florida — but he’s not leaving Hawaii https://lovetoreads.com/live-updates-larry-ellison-bought-an-80-million-mansion-in-palm-beach-florida-but-hes-not-leaving-hawaii/ https://lovetoreads.com/live-updates-larry-ellison-bought-an-80-million-mansion-in-palm-beach-florida-but-hes-not-leaving-hawaii/#respond Tue, 13 Apr 2021 09:27:49 +0000 https://lovetoreads.com/live-updates-larry-ellison-bought-an-80-million-mansion-in-palm-beach-florida-but-hes-not-leaving-hawaii/ Larry Ellison bought an $80 million mansion in Palm Beach, Florida — but he’s not leaving Hawaii

Oracle founder Larry Ellison on Monday pushed back on the notion that he could be moving to Florida after buying a mansion there — reaffirming his commitment to the Hawaiian island he owns.

Ellison, one of the wealthiest people in the world, told Oracle employees in an email viewed by Recode that he was tearing down an $80 million, 15,000-square-foot home that he recently purchased in Palm Beach. Ellison said the report that he had bought the luxurious home was “true” but that he was “tearing the house down and not moving to Florida.”

“Last year I moved from California to the island of Lana’i and became a resident of the State of Hawaii. I love it here and have no plans to move back to Florida, Texas, back to California … or anywhere else.”

Among Silicon Valley billionaires, Ellison has always displayed a particular taste for the high life. He owns more than $1 billion in real estate; the Palm Beach estate was described by the Wall Street Journal as “a Tuscan-style property [that] has seven bedrooms, a home theater and a wine room. It also includes a tennis court and is one of a handful of properties in Florida where someone could land and take off in a helicopter from the estate, according to the listing.”

Ellison has been communicating very proactively with his employees about his whereabouts during the pandemic. Oracle itself has moved its headquarters to Austin, Texas. The Oracle leader then wrote his 135,000 employees in December to tell them that he had relocated to Lana’i, an island he purchased almost all of in 2012.

Ellison outlined for them several projects he has been pursuing on behalf of the local people in Lana’i, who are highly dependent on companies tied to the tech billionaire. Ellison is building a preschool and low-income housing on the island, he said, along with trying to grow and export more produce through his Sensei Farms company.

“My plan is to continue to live and work on Lana’i. Most of my work time will be spent Zooming for Oracle. But I will also make time for the many exciting community development projects here on Lana’i.”

“I don’t want to miss anything,” he concluded his note.

The Daily Beast

There’s Nothing ‘Hypocritical’ About Punishing Georgia for Punishing Voters

Scott McIntyre/GettyWhen Major League Baseball relocated the All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver in response to Georgia’s new voting law, Fox News was quick to react. “Is the White House concerned that Major League baseball is moving their All-Star Game to Colorado, where voting regulations are very similar to Georgia?” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Jen Psaki last week.The network also featured Brian Kemp, governor of Georgia and former secretary of state there, claiming that it was “hypocritical” to move the game to Colorado, which, after all, has only half the number of early voting days and more strenuous ID requirements than those the new Georgia law has enacted. In a Republican National Lawyers Association Q&A this week, Kemp said the battle over the law—which pits Georgia-based companies and voting-rights activists against the state’s Republicans—represented the “fight of our lives” against “cancel culture.”All of this misses the point. It is futile to attempt an apples-to-apples comparison of one state’s voting policies to another’s, because there are wide variations in local voting cultures, demographics, geographies, and legal idiosyncrasies. Comparing Georgia’s voting requirements to Colorado’s without this context is like asking why you can play Beethoven on a piano but not a tambourine, as both happen to be instruments.Whoopi Goldberg Cuts Off Meghan McCain’s MLB Georgia Rant: ‘Are You Done?’For example, although it is factually true that Georgia has double the number of early voting days as Colorado, it’s important to acknowledge that most Georgians vote in person while almost no Coloradans do. To say that this is an advantage over Colorado is to fundamentally misunderstand how Coloradans vote. And the proof is in the numbers: Turnout in 2020 was 10 percentage points higher in Colorado than it was in Georgia. It’s unpersuasive to claim that your state is the same as another state when the results are so different, akin to two stores with the exact same security policies but with far different rates of theft because, say, one store is in a mall and the other is in an outdoor market.These misleading comparisons between states show the need for a smarter measuring stick. We should compare states to themselves. Would this bill make voting in this state harder to access than the current rules do? That standard would enable appropriate scrutiny of states that choose to make their own laws worse, negating the need for red-state-blue-state pissing matches, and instead holding the line and demanding states don’t undo their own good work.“If we want to talk about comparing one state to comparing the other, let’s see what trajectory they’re on,” Bob Brandon, president and CEO of the nonpartisan Fair Elections Center, recently told NBC News. Similarly, Justin Levitt, law professor at Loyola Law School at Loyola Marymount University in California, rejected state-by-state comparisons. Having an outdated law on the books is a lot different from “looking back on that law, in the current context, and saying, ‘Yeah, we need one of those,’” he said. “‘Somebody else screwed up’ is not an excuse for screwing up. That’s the inane part about whatabout-ism.”But that whatabout-ism is how politicians and the media have been focusing their attention. They are distracted by essentially meaningless rankings of states’ “ease of access,” pulled from data that is not uniformly collected or may be entirely based on one activism group’s interpretation of the laws as expansive or restrictive—hardly scientific comparisons. Today, conservative media outlets superficially compare the Georgia law to other states with no context. Not a single one has asked, “Does this make it easier for the exact same people in the same state to vote in the way they just did?” The restrictions of the new law may not affect turnout, but they won’t make voting easier or elections better either. It is far simpler, and more logical, to question whether a state is improving or worsening its own standards, and in light of what the standards have been in the immediate past.Take Kentucky. It is the only state with a Republican-controlled legislature that has passed bills so far this session to expand voting access. The state will now have three days of early voting, up from none, and firmer security and ease of access measures around absentee voting. It helps that the state has a governor with a “D” by his name, and also that Kentucky didn’t have to do much to make voting easier. As part of its response to the pandemic, Kentucky offered early and absentee voting for the first time. Once voters realized what a hassle voting had been when they only had a single day to vote in person in the middle of the week, there was no turning back. The voters demanded it become law.Most Republican-controlled state legislatures are poised to do the opposite: Legislation has been introduced that would make laws materially worse for voters, all based on the lie that the election was compromised by fraud. The Georgia law, while it does expand early voting and is a far cry from the horrors of the original legislation, will still produce new barriers for Georgians compared with access in 2020. It gives the state far stricter controls over the counties, essentially makes dropboxes useless, and prevents elections officials from sending absentee-ballot applications out to voters proactively. It also allows partisan groups to challenge the eligibility of an infinite number of voters, with essentially no limitations.Conservatives have also found a carrier for their grievances in the idea that blue states with restrictive voter laws are ignored while red states that introduce the same laws have big baseball games ripped away from them. Connecticut has no early voting at all. Neither does Delaware, the home of President Joe Biden. New Jersey just adopted nine days, the fifth-shortest window in the country, and New York only has 10. Connecticut, Delaware, and New Jersey also have far more restrictive absentee-ballot requirements than almost every state, including those in the Republican South. So why, they ask, do the Republican states end up getting all the criticism?While as a Texan I have long harbored the same frustration—when I lived in New York, for example, I could only vote in in-person at my precinct on Election Day (the 10 early days were introduced last year), and in Texas I can vote for 15 days anywhere in the county—the argument is unproductive. With the latest round of voting legislation, blue states are moving far more rapidly toward modern standards while Republican states are aggressively attempting to roll back what little advantages they had over their bluer counterparts (assuming, of course, they ever really had them). Since I’ve left New York, it has adopted early voting and updated its absentee-ballot requirements. It has implemented ranked-choice voting and synchronized federal and state primary schedules.Meanwhile, my home state has gone rapidly in the other direction. As in Georgia and other Republican-led states, proposals in Texas would restrict access to some of its best voting policies by banning drive-through voting (implemented with great success by Harris County, home of Houston), limiting absentee ballots and reducing early voting. Even the most draconian of these laws will still allow voters more time to vote early than those in Delaware, Connecticut, and New Jersey—but that’s not much comfort to a Texan.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
