…for criminalsTacuma Ogunseye is a member of the WPA and as far as your Eyewitness knows, he still holds a job with the Government…Office of the President? He used to be with ACDA but they dumped him for being too “radical”. He just penned a letter to the press which illustrates why we’ll never get out of the political morass that has stymied our development for the last 60 years. In suggesting that Ramjattan ought to be also looking to reduce the source of crime – which Ogunseye pins on “poverty” – he took the opportunity to invoke the post 1998 crime wave.But oh, what a one-eyed view it was!! Ogunseye gnashed his teeth about the activities of the “phantom squad”: “As a result of the PPP/C regime covenant with known drug lords, the nation witnessed for the first time in its history, the emergence of an unprecedented rise in State-sponsored executions that led to the birth of the so-called phantom killers and the criminalisation of the State.”But even granting all of this, why didn’t Ogunseye not even ONCE mention what brought on those “killer squads”. Did they arise full blown (and grown) from the brow of Zeus?? Not once did he also mention the five “Mash Day Escapees”, who might have arose full-blown from the brow of Ogun, the Yoruba God of War!! They promptly set up camp in the heart of Buxton and declared war on the state of Guyana. Was it because they specifically declared themselves – on a tape shown on national TV – as were Freedom Fighters on behalf of African Guyanese?Ogunseye says that crime wave “had a negative impact on the political, economic and social situation in the country. The end results were overcrowded jails that up to today are populated with young men, most of whom were born and brought up under the PPP/C regime.” So the PPP’s responsible for the Freedom Fighters, recruiting hundreds of young men to act as lookouts in Buxton or training them for the “freedom fight” in the backlands of Buxton??Then there were the drug-laced orgies held at the “line top” in Buxton where young girls were routinely raped. Does Ogunseye think respect for women were inculcated in those parties. And the killings? It wasn’t only Policemen who were killed… what about the maraudings in the neighbouring villages where innocent Indians were butchered??And as to why the Phantoms weren’t “taken out” in Guyana…Could it be because their confessed leader Roger Khan, identified by Ogunseye, took out a full-page ad in the press boasting about his links to the then CoP?Who was rewarded by being made a Minister in this Government!!…and whistling in the darkThe AFC second tier leaders were ebullient after the High Court rejected the PPP’s case challenging some of their candidates at the LGE! One report said they were in “high spirits” – which is the default status of their leaders Nagamootoo and Ramjattan – excepting that their “spirits” usually come in a bottle!! Is it catching?! Now nothing’s wrong with being optimistic – but these young’uns had to be whistling in the dark. Even THEY couldn’t have missed the fact that the best “crowd” they were able to muster at their meetings was 10 in Kitty!!But unfortunately, they really set themselves up for a great fall when they boasted that “AFC votes can’t be forged on Election Day”!! Your Eyewitness agrees specifically on this specific claim because their PNC partner – which does the rigging – has put them out to pasture!! But because they’re on their own, your Eyewitness predicts THE AFC WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ELECT A SINGLE COUNCILLOR ACROSS GUYANA!!After all, there’s nothing you can do with dead meat, save throwing it into the garbage!!…a murder most foulYour Eyewitness wants you dear readers not to get your hopes up that any action will be taken against the “intellectual authors” of the murder of Khashoggi.Remember the fate of the Rodney Inquiry here?
0Shares0000COPENHAGEN, December 11 – Cristiano Ronaldo became the first player to score nine goals in the group stages of the Champions League as Real Madrid won 2-0 away at FC Copenhagen on Tuesday.Luka Modric had given a surprisingly strong Madrid side the lead with a wonder strike on 25 minutes. Ronaldo then doubled the advantage just after the break with a clinical finish from close range, but it wasn’t a perfect night for the Portuguese as he had a late penalty saved by Copenhagen keeper Johan Wiland.Real’s two goals also meant they equalled a competition record of 20 goals in the group stages as they finished with 16 points from a possible 18 in Group B.And Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti hailed his side’s professionalism after performing so well with qualification already assured.“The players were very professional. It is not easy to play once you are already qualified, but they showed good attitude, played well and controlled the game.”However, the Italian admitted that despite breaking another record, Ronaldo wasn’t entirely happy having missed from the spot for the first time this season.“He is a little angry because he didn’t score the penalty. But he scored another important goal and played well.”And looking forward to the draw for the last 16 on December 16, Ancelotti is keen to avoid Manchester City, who finished second in Group D despite beating holders Bayern Munich 3-2 on Tuesday.“City are the most dangerous of the teams that have finished second, but it is important for us just to continue playing as we have and trying to improve.”Ronaldo was making his return to the side after three games out through injury and suspension respectively, whilst Gareth Bale also started after missing Saturday’s 0-0 draw away to minnows Olimpic Xativa in the Copa del Rey due to flu.On a freezing night and on a pitch in awful condition in the Danish capital it was perhaps unsurprising that the hosts made the more forceful start.However, they failed to seriously trouble Iker Casillas and Madrid began to threaten midway through the half.Karim Benzema was first to have an effort on goal as his low drive was well-handled by Wiland in the Copenhagen goal.Just three minutes later though, the keeper was left helpless as Modric curled in his first goal of the season with a stunning strike from 25 yards.Wiland then had to be alive to deny Ronaldo as he bundled the Portuguese’s effort round the post.Copenhagen did have the ball in the net before half-time when Thomas Delaney outjumped Casillas. However, the goal was ruled out as the midfielder not only appeared to foul the Spanish captain but also put the ball in the net with his hand.Ronaldo had to wait just three minutes after the break to make his mark as he latched onto Pepe’s well-directed knockdown to fire home from close range.The former Manchester United man then struck the post with an in-swinging effort as Madrid controlled the second half with ease.And he had the perfect opportunity to double his tally for the evening when he was felled inside the area by Delaney.But Wiland stood up well to divert his dinked effort behind for a corner and moments later Bale failed to connect from barely three yards out with the goal at his mercy to keep the score down.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

GELSENKIRCHEN, Germany – England still can’t get past Portugal or Luiz Felipe Scolari. After the English lost David Beckham to an injury and Wayne Rooney to a red card, Portugal won a shootout 3-1 Saturday night following 120 minutes of scoreless soccer. England played a man short for nearly an hour, gamely holding on and creating chances along the way. When time ran out, the boisterous English fans seemed happy to have survived, jumping and singing along with “Que Sera, Sera” as the shootout loomed. But shootouts are not where England shines, and it now has lost five of its last six in major tournaments. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2Portugal, which also beat England on penalty kicks in the European Championship quarterfinals two years ago, meets Brazil or France on Wednesday in its first World Cup semifinal since 1966. A Scolari-coached team knocked out England for the second straight World Cup. Four years ago, he led Brazil to a 2-1 quarterfinal win over the English en route to the title. England has lost on penalty kicks in major tournaments in five of its last six shootouts: to Portugal in the 2004 European Championship quarterfinals, to Argentina in the second round of the 1998 World Cup, to Germany in the 1996 Euro semifinals and to Germany in the 1990 World Cup semis. Its lone win in that span was against Spain in the 1996 Euro quarterfinals. Cristiano Ronaldo, who plays in England for Manchester United, converted the final penalty, sending the ball to his right as goalkeeper David Robinson went the other way. Portugal’s small contingent of fans, relegated to one corner of the stadium and drowned out for the entire game, were suddenly loud enough to fill the closed-roof stadium in Gelsenkirchen. Siamao Sabrosa and Helder Postiga also converted penalties for Portugal, whole Higo Viana hit a post and Petit sent the ball wide. Ricardo, Portugal’s goalkeeper, stopped kicks by Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher, whose shot rebounded off Ricardo, then hit the crossbar before bouncing out. Only Owen Hargreaves converted his penalty for England.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!

Speaking to Rangers TV, Ojo said: “I haven’t had a consistent opportunity for football and when I heard Rangers were involved, all the parties believed this was the right destination for me and for my career.“When I’m playing consistently and injury free everything goes well – I just haven’t had that consistency.“With Rangers this season, it’s to just play how I’ve always played, to play freely and to enjoy my football.” Rangers have signed Liverpool winger Sheyi Ojo on a season-long loan.The 21-year-old has become the Ibrox club’s fifth summer signing of the transfer window.Ojo spent last season on loan at Stade Reims in France before signing a new five-year deal at Liverpool.Steven Davis, Jordan Jones, Jake Hastie and Greg Stewart have all joined the club during the summer.
The Christmas Bonus will be paid out between tomorrow and Friday, with 1.2 million recipients set to receive a share of the €221 million put aside.The bonus will be made to people with disabilities, pensioners, carers, lone parents, long-term unemployed, and other recipients.For 2016, the bonus is equivalent to 85% of the normal sum paid to social welfare recipients. This year’s level of payment is the highest since the bonus was abolished by the previous Government in 2009.Social Protection Minister Leo Varadkar says; “I’m very pleased that the Christmas Bonus is being paid again this year. It’s an important payment in the run-up to the festive season, and I’m especially pleased that we have been able to pay it at a rate of 85% of the benefit. This is the highest level of payment since the bonus was abolished by the previous Government.”“The most important impact of the Christmas Bonus is for the recipients. But it also represents a significant boost for local economies with an additional €221 million being made available.”Christmas Bonus to be paid out to social welfare recipients this week was last modified: November 27th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

The National Council for Home Safety and Security (NCHSS) has published a study unveiling the most dangerous cities in the United States. By analyzing publically-available FBI crime data and population figures, the NCHSS has created a report that highlights the cities with the highest rate of crime per capita and those with the most significant increase in violence throughout the year.Alarms.org, the official site of the NCHSS, has announced the following cities as the most dangerous in America.Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities in the U.S.1. Anniston, Alabama2. Bessemer, Alabama3. Florida City, Florida4. McKeesport, Pennsylvania5. St. Louis, Missouri6. Detroit, Michigan7. Baltimore, Maryland8. Memphis, Tennessee9. Camden County, New Jersey10. Opa Locka, FloridaThe complete report contains this list as well as others that include additional variables such as cities with larger populations, police adequacy scores, and year-over-year changes in crime rates.To see the full study and all its details, click through to the study here: https://www.alarms.org/top-100-most-dangerous-cities-in-america/The NCHSS has obtained these rankings by analyzing the most recent data made available by the FBI and combining it with current population figures for these US cities. Lists were then created based on the crime rate for all cities, “large” cities (populations over 100,000), and for cities most trending towards crime. Lastly, cities with a population under 10,000 were discarded, as well as the few cities that did not submit complete crime reports to the FBI.
