Boston Globe Reporter Identifies Gun Waving Cop (UPDATE)



Boston police have launched an internal affairs investigation into an incident involving a 61-year-old man who videotaped a police sergeant waving what appeared to be a seized firearm in his face as he filmed officers stopping a teenager on a Roxbury street this month.

The gun was a realistic-looking toy, according to police, but civil rights advocates and the man who recorded the video say that does not matter. The video shows the sergeant questioning the man about why he was videotaping, saying he did not consent to be taped, then walking over and holding the gun up close to the camera, saying, “That’s why we’re here.” The sergeant does not point the gun at the man.

“His intention was to put that in my face and produce fear. That was his intention,” said the man, who asked to be identified by the name Brother Lawrence, because he said he feared retaliation for speaking out. “I thought my life was in jeopardy there.”

Boston police spokesman Lieutenant Michael McCarthy said the sergeant depicted in the video, Henry Staines, has been counseled that citizens have the constitutional right to videotape police officers doing their jobs. An internal affairs investigation has begun, McCarthy said, and Staines will meet with Lawrence, Boston NAACP President Michael Curry, and Superintendent-in-Chief William Gross on Friday. A reminder has also gone out to all officers that citizens can legally videotape them, McCarthy said.

“The officer knew… that the firearm was a toy firearm,” said McCarthy, who said realistic-looking fake guns are a growing and dangerous problem that put youths and police in danger. “It appeared as though his frustration at that point was that this young child who was out there carrying this firearm could have been shot for carrying a toy. Not to frighten. Not to threaten the person taking the video. But to educate them on the fact that these things were out there.”

Patriot Act Faces Revisions Backed by Both Parties

Source: NY Times

After more than a decade of wrenching national debate over the intrusiveness of government intelligence agencies, a bipartisan wave of support has gathered to sharply limit the federal government’s sweeps of phone and Internet records.

On Thursday, a bill that would overhaul the Patriot Act and curtail the so-called metadata surveillance exposed by Edward J. Snowden was overwhelmingly passed by the House Judiciary Committee and was heading to almost certain passage in that chamber this month.

An identical bill in the Senate — introduced with the support of five Republicans — is gaining support over the objection of Senator Mitch McConnell, Republican of Kentucky, who is facing the prospect of his first policy defeat since ascending this year to majority leader.

The push for reform is the strongest demonstration yet of a decade-long shift from a singular focus on national security at the expense of civil liberties to a new balance in the post-Snowden era.

Scientists Discover the Secret to Keeping Cells Young

Source: Time

Researchers say it may be possible to slow and even reverse aging by keeping DNA more stably packed together in our cells

In a breakthrough discovery, scientists report that they have found the key to keeping cells young. In a study published Thursday in Science, an international team, led by Juan Carlos Izpisua Belmonte at the Salk Institute, studied the gene responsible for an accelerated aging disease known as Werner syndrome, or adult progeria, in which patients show signs of osteoporosis, grey hair and heart disease in very early adulthood.

These patients are deficient in a gene responsible for copying DNA, repairing any mistakes in that replication process, and for keeping track of telomeres, the fragments of DNA at the ends of chromosomes that are like a genetic clock dictating the cell’s life span. Belmonte—together with scientists at the University Catolica San Antonio Murcia and the Institute of Biophysics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences—wanted to understand how the mutated gene triggered aging in cells. So they took embryonic stem cells, which can develop into all of the cells of the human body, and removed this gene. They then watched as the cells aged prematurely, and found that the reason they became older so quickly had to do with how their DNA was packaged.

In order to function properly, DNA is tightly twisted and wound into chromosomes that resemble a rope in the nucleus of cells. Only when the cell is ready to divide does the DNA unwrap itself, and even then, only in small segments at a time. In patients with Werner syndrome, the chromosomes are slightly messier, more loosely stuffed into the nuclei, and that leads to instability that pushes the cell to age more quickly. Belmonte discovered that the Werner gene regulates this chromosome stability. When he allowed the embryonic stem cells that were missing this gene to grow into cells that go on to become bone, muscle and more, he saw that these cells aged more quickly.

Last Tokyo subway gas attack suspect jailed for life

Source: AFP

The final suspect in the 1995 deadly nerve gas attack on the Tokyo subway was jailed for life on Thursday, for his part in a crime that shocked the world.

Katsuya Takahashi, a 57-year-old former member of the Aum Supreme Truth cult, served as a driver for one of the cultists who released the Nazi-developed sarin gas in the subway system, killing 13 people and injuring some 6,000.

While Takahashi denied knowledge about the planned gas attack, Tokyo District Court's presiding judge Tomomi Nakazato ruled that he knew about what would become Japan's worst terrorist attack, an incident that sowed panic throughout the nation, according to Jiji Press.

Local media highlighted how during his court hearings Takahashi remained loyal to the cult's half-blind guru and did not utter an apology over a series of crimes committed by the group.

Police captured Takahashi in June 2012 after he had been on the run for 17 years, bringing to an end the hunt for those thought to be behind the horrific act.
