first_imgProposed youth justice reforms in NT will not make community safer The reforms to youth justice laws proposed by the Northern Territory government yesterday will not make communities safer and contradict the recommendations of the Royal Commission into the detention of children in the NT, says the Australian Lawyers Alliance (ALA).“We know people are looking for answers and we all want to live in safe communities, but the ‘tough on crime’ measures proposed by the NT Government are not the solution,” says Mr Greg Barns SC, national criminal justice spokesperson, ALA. “Locking up more young people will not help – it just increases the likelihood of even more serious offending as the young people become adults.“All the evidence from around the world tells us that the more exposure a young person has to detention centres and the criminal justice system the more likely they are to continue to reoffend. The Government’s proposal to have more people locked up is only going to make the situation worse in the long term.“There is no evidence that keeping young people in detention reduces the likelihood of them committing crimes on release. In fact, the contrary is true. One of the first studies in the world of pretrial detention, published last year in the US, showed that pretrial detention was associated with a 33% increase in serious crime recidivism and 11% increase in petty crime recidivism within one year of release[1].“Evidence also clearly shows that electronic monitoring does not reduce crime. Electronic monitoring is ineffective, it stigmatises kids and have been known to cause vigilante action seeing as the young person can be so easily identified.“Importantly, the proposed measures will have a particularly disproportionate effect on young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who are already significantly over-represented in youth detention in the NT.“These proposals contradict all effective youth justice principles that promote diversion away from detention and the criminal justice system.”[1] https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/0011128720926115 /Public Release.

A neighbor, who just happens to be a retired Los Angeles police officer and defense attorney, interrupted the break-in when he heard banging in the middle of the night.“She was scared to death,” said Mike McCowan, in an interview with the Daily Press shorty before attending Florence Kaufman’s funeral Thursday.Officers responded quickly to McCowan’s 9-1-1 call early Saturday morning, pulling up to The Shore around 5 a.m., Jan 13, according to police records of the evening. Lt. Saul Rodriguez says they found the suspect, Anthony Aikin, walking around the property when they arrived.Rodriguez said Aikin told police he had indeed entered Kaufman’s apartment, but said it was because he heard someone calling for help. He did not take anything. Rodriguez said he might have been hallucinating. McCowan believes Aikin may be crazy.“The guy was yelling and running back and forth by the time I saw him,” McCowan said. A loud banging on his neighbor’s door had awoken him in the middle of the night. The 84-year-old former cop looked through his peephole and immediately called the police when he saw the man busting through the widow’s door.Once help was on the way, McCowan went to get his gun. While the former officer owns a few firearms, he discovered that night he was out of bullets. He reached for a golf club instead before walking into the hall and confronting the man.“I’m so upset about this because I knew I saved her life but to see that this carried on and killed her hurts me a lot,” McCowan said. At 90-years-old, Kaufman slept through the break-in and had no idea what happened until McCowan and detectives filled her in. McCowan said she became more and more distraught over what happened in the following days. While the two neighbors had always been friendly, they became close in the days leading up to her death.“I would always say ‘hi’ to her. We knew each other,” McCowan said, “but after that night she was with me all the time. She was frightened. She thought I saved her life but she was still frightened.”“She was scared to death,” McCowan repeated.McCowan, who notably served as Sirhan Sirhan’s defense attorney after the Kennedy assassination, has been deeply impacted by the break-in and Kaufman’s subsequent death. He says he plans to visit Aikin in jail with one of Kaufman’s children to tell him she died.“He murdered her,” McCowan said. “He killed her with his actions. I know he’s crazy.”The District Attorney referred the case back to the Santa Monica City Attorney’s Office and did not file any charges. The City Attorney did not return the Daily Press’s inquiries on the status of the case by press time.Lt. Rodriguez said detectives did not know about the victim’s death until the phone call from the Daily Press to verify the incident but said he would tell investigators and prosecutors. He said it’s not clear how Kaufman’s death would impact Aikin’s case.Connecting the dots between the two “would be very, very difficult,” Rodriguez said.Kaufman lived at The Shore with her late husband, Bill, for decades, according to Daily Press columnist Jack Neworth who knows the family well. Neworth said the couple maintained a college scholarship fund in honor of their son who was a teacher and died from AIDS after he was infected by a blood transfusion.The Shore is a luxury apartment building with 24 hour concierge service. Management did not return the Daily Press’s request for comment.last_img read more

Glacier National Park is home to 71 different mammals, from the iconic grizzly bear and mountain goat to the undeniably adorable pika. But a California man says there is one creature missing from the National Park Service’s official list: Bigfoot.But Tom Biscardi — a self-described “Godfather of Bigfoot” who has been searching for the creature for a half-century — is going to correct that wrong with the construction of a Bigfoot museum and seven-story, 100-room hotel in East Glacier Park. Biscardi and his business partners say construction will begin in the coming months and hope to start welcoming guests next year.Biscardi is a Renaissance man of sorts. Besides serving as CEO of Bigfoot Project Investments — a publicly traded company established a few years ago with the mission to “create exciting and interesting proprietary investment projects and entertainment properties surrounding the mythology, research, and potential capture of the creature known as Bigfoot” — Biscardi also owns a live tribute show to Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson called “2 Kings.” Biscardi said the show, which has played in Las Vegas and Reno, will be performed in East Glacier Park when the hotel opens.“Bigfoot is just like Elvis Presley and Michael Jackson,” Biscardi said. “Everyone has heard of them.”Biscardi first visited the East Glacier Park area during his search for Sasquatch. According to Biscardi, the Rocky Mountain Front is known as the “Bigfoot byway” and is a popular migration route for the mythical creature (Biscardi said the “byway” starts in Alberta and heads south, but he declined to give further details of the geographic parameters for fear that “weekend warrior” Sasquatch hunters would start combing the region). Biscardi said there is solid evidence that the creatures have traveled through the area and that he has even interviewed a local who shot a Sasquatch last year.According to Biscardi, a Sasquatch was harassing an East Glacier Park family about a year ago. In an effort to protect their home, one of the family members allegedly went outside and shot the creature from the front porch. Not long after the Sasquatch was fatally shot, the family told Biscardi, another creature emerged from the woods and picked up its wounded brethren to take it to a “burial cave.” The family apparently shared photos of the incident with Biscardi’s team, and blood from the wounded Sasquatch was tested at a lab and found to be authentic, the Biscardi said.Sara Reynolds, chief financial officer for Bigfoot Project Investments, said their team has seen the entrance to the burial cave but have yet to go inside.Bigfoot Project Investments officials said the museum — already dubbed the “largest Bigfoot museum in the world” — would be jammed with artifacts gathered over the last century, including hair samples, footprint molds and even a toenail.Besides being a hotbed for Bigfoot activity, Reynolds said East Glacier Park is an ideal place for development, especially a hotel.“We want to bring some of the tourism traffic to the east side of Glacier National Park,” she said. “The wild side.”Bigfoot Project Investments is partnering with Bill Stewart, owner of the Dancing Bears Inn and Alpenglow Restaurant, on the project. Stewart said he has wanted to open a larger hotel in East Glacier Park for a number of years, and when Biscardi approached him about the project, he jumped at the opportunity. Stewart said a number of buildings on the south side of U.S. Highway 2 would be demolished to clear space for the new hotel. The Alpenglow would be remodeled and connected to the hotel via a skywalk.Biscardi said he hopes to employ about 300 people when the hotel and museum is up and running. Biscardi said the east side’s wild scenery, rustic surroundings and deep Bigfoot history make it an ideal place for development.“This is such a special place,” he said. “People want to come here to see what the world is like before things got so crazy.” Emaillast_img read more
