When Seattle police officers write use of force reports they no longer call a suspect a suspect. “Community member” is the new term. Several officers say the term is offensive, explaining their work with violent suspects. Sources point to the suspect who shot three officers last month after a downtown Seattle armed robbery. When officers involved in that incident were writing their use of force reports they were required to refer to the shooter, Damarius Butts, as a “community member,” not a suspect, police sources said. Police fatally shot Butts after they said he shot the officers. “I think this is all in an effort to make sure our report writing sounds politically correct,” Seattle Police Officers' Guild Kevin Stuckey told KIRO 7.

Unprotected: How the normalisation of underage sex is exposing children and young people to the risk of sexual exploitation A new report by Norman Wells “The appalling revelations of systematic child abuse and exploitation in English towns and cities over the past few years have led to a considerable amount of soul-searching about the root causes of the crisis. In this report, Norman Wells draws attention to a neglected but critical aspect of the debate. He has drawn together the findings of a series of serious case reviews and an independent inquiry looking at the reasons why the abuse of so many young people was not picked up by professionals. “The report is utterly damning.

World’s most capable X-band ballistic missile defense radar upgrades to gallium nitride technology

Latest News, Police, Technology
Ballistic missiles will soon be easier to detect and defeat.  The U.S. Missile Defense Agency has awarded Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) a $10 million contract modification to continue the development of hardware and software that will add gallium nitride, or GaN semiconductor technology to the AN/TPY-2 ballistic missile defense radar. GaN increases the radar's range, search capabilities and enables the system to better discriminate between threats and non-threats. Gallium nitride technology also increases the system's overall reliability while maintaining production and operational costs. "AN/TPY-2 is already the world's most capable land-based, X-band, ballistic missile defense radar," said Raytheon's Dave Gulla, vice president of the Integrated Defense Systems Mission Systems and Se

NHS Orders Security Guards to Remove ‘Offensive’ British Flag Badges from Stab Vests in Bristol.

University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation Trust has ordered hospital security guards to remove Union flag badges from their stab vests after a member of the public complained they were “offensive”.

The 12 members of staff, employed by the NHS, received an e-mail telling them to no longer wear the flags on their uniforms. An insider at the hospital said around half of the security staff had been wearing the Velcro badges with pride for the past two months, but there had recently been a complaint made by a member of the public. The hospital worker told the Bristol Post that security guards had received an e-mail asking for the flag badges to be removed with immed
