Defence coach John Mitchell warns England to beware Italy’s tactics

first_imgSix Nations 2019 Topics Sam Warburton: ‘Wales are in a great place. The World Cup is a realistic target’ Jones was furious after the match, insisting: “That’s not rugby. If you paid for your ticket, ask for your money back,” while George Ford claimed Italy’s tactics “could kill the game”. Mitchell, however, still expects Italy – without a win in 20 Six Nations matches – to come armed with a ploy designed to unsettle England. “They’ll come with something. There is no doubt about that. Let’s hope they come with something positive,” he said.“You want to be tested in various aspects of your game. There’s a big tournament down the road and we haven’t got too many minutes left before then so we have got to adapt to different challenges that come, and whatever comes next weekend we have got to be ready for.“One of the things that sticks in the mind is: expect the unexpected. That creates a challenge to be alert and to understand the implications of what that unexpected might be and make sure that we can prepare as well as we can for those unexpected situations that might come.”Two years ago Ben Youngs was among the replacements, coming on for Danny Care after 51 minutes and steering England to a 36-15 win in an improved second half. England were still criticised for how long it took them to adapt to Italy’s surprise tactic – a failing under the microscope again following the defeat by Wales in Cardiff.“It is something we already discussed and with coaches like Conor and [Mike Catt] they’ve got coaches not afraid to try different things,” Youngs said. “If there is something that teams haven’t seen before, I’d say they were the type of coaches who could come up with something.“On reflection back to [Cardiff], was there an opportunity to adapt or change? Yes, potentially, but at the time we felt there was an opportunity and that the momentum would change and we’d be able to get field position and be able to go. It just didn’t quite happen.” news England are expecting Italy to lay another tactical trap at Twickenham on Saturday but the defence coach, John Mitchell, has urged Conor O’Shea’s side to “come with something positive” after the no-ruck ploy used two years ago was outlawed.Italy gave England an almighty scare in 2017 and led 10-5 at half-time with Eddie Jones’s side bamboozled by the plan hatched by Brendan Venter and dubbed “the Fox”. Italy’s tactic of not contesting rucks – thereby ensuring no offside line and allowing their defenders to stand in between England’s scrum‑half and his receivers – has since been made illegal by World Rugby, much to O’Shea’s disappointment.

New bill proposed to change law regarding police use of deadly force

first_imgNew bill proposed to change law regarding police use of deadly force April 3, 2018 00:00 00:00 spaceplay / pause qunload | stop ffullscreenshift + ←→slower / faster ↑↓volume mmute ←→seek  . seek to previous 12… 6 seek to 10%, 20% … 60% XColor SettingsAaAaAaAaTextBackgroundOpacity SettingsTextOpaqueSemi-TransparentBackgroundSemi-TransparentOpaqueTransparentFont SettingsSize||TypeSerif MonospaceSerifSans Serif MonospaceSans SerifCasualCursiveSmallCapsResetSave SettingsSAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Police use of deadly force is once again front and center in California following the death of Stephon Clark in Sacramento last month.Assemblywoman Shirley Weber of San Diego has introduced a landmark change in the law to address deadly police shootings.Last year, police shot and killed 162 people in California, only half of whom were armed with guns. Clark did not have a gun. He was holding a cellphone.Shirley Weber’s bill is called the “Police Accountability and Community Protection Act.” Its purpose is to change the law to somehow ensure there are reasonable alternatives to deadly force.“We’re not saying people can’t use lethal force but we’re saying oftentimes there are alternatives that can be used. I think we saw that with the video that we saw last week, that there were other alternatives,” Weber said.The alternatives include warnings, verbal persuasion or other non-lethal methods of resolution or de-escalation. It also establishes that a homicide by police is not justified if the officer’s gross negligence contributed to making the force deadly, as claimed in the case of Stephon Clark.“People weren’t facing each other, people were behind a house, they could have employed a number of things that are there,” Weber said.The video Weber referred to was police chasing Clark into a backyard where he was shot several times. Police say he was approaching them in a threatening way and thought he had a gun.An autopsy showed Clark was hit eight times in the back.“The proposition that he was assailing the officers, meaning he was facing the officers is inconsistent with the prevailing forensic evidence as documented by autopsy,” said Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic pathologist.The autopsy report sparked widespread protest demonstrations and rallies for justice.The ACLU is supporting the change in the law, relying on recommendations from legal experts and policing experts.Weber said the legal standard is very permissive to police officers who use deadly force, and in many cases, no matter whether the individual was unarmed or even cooperative, it ended with the death of a civilian.A representative from the San Francisco District Attorney’s office agrees.“Our current legal standard, as you’ve seen nationwide, very few police are charged with illegal use of deadly force and even fewer are convicted,” they said.Weber said the existing law gives cover to police killings and it has widened the rift between grieving communities, especially communities of color.
