WPVI(TRENTON, N.J.) — A cellphone video apparently showing a New Jersey Transit Police officer dragging and hitting a semiconscious man outside a train station in Trenton over the weekend has prompted an internal investigation by the agency, officials said.“I can only attest to what I saw and what I saw wasn’t warranted,” the woman who took the video told ABC station WPVI-TV in Philadelphia.The woman, who requested anonymity, said the troubling incident occurred around 10:30 p.m. on Saturday outside the Trenton Transit Center.The woman, of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, said she was waiting for a ride outside the train station when she heard a commotion and then started filming the encounter with a cellphone. She said she first noticed the man sitting against a wall outside the station just before the encounter with the transit officer occurred.“There was no resisting … he wasn’t even speaking,” the woman said of the man who she says appeared to be passed out when the officer showed up.The video captures the officer, whose name has not been released, yelling at the man, who is seen collapsed on the sidewalk outside the entrance doors to the station.“Get up and get out now!” the officer is heard telling the man.When the man didn’t move for about 30 seconds, the officer allegedly grabbed him again by the hood of his sweatshirt and dragged him a few feet toward the curb before throwing him to the ground.The officer is then seen dragging the man a few feet further by his sweatshirt before apparently throwing him face-first onto the pavement and allegedly hitting him in the head, according to the video.Jim Smith, a New Jersey Transit spokesman, said the officer in the video has been identified and placed on administrative suspension, pending the outcome of an investigation.“The matter is currently under investigation with the New Jersey Transit Police Department Internal Affairs,” Smith told ABC News on Monday.It was unclear if the man seen allegedly being roughed up by the officer has been identified.“That’s all part of the investigation,” Smith said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Powered by Firework Cricket returned amidst the COVID-19 pandemic with West Indies’ tour of England. While the visitors took the lead in the first test, a win in the second was just the confidence boost that the poms were needing, as they have now levelled the series 1-1 with today’s 113 run victory at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground.Advertisement Image Courtesy: ECB/GettyThe series started sour for the hosts, as West Indies swept up a 4 wicket victory in the first test. However, England started picking up pace in the second, and were already favourites with an astounding 291 lead at the end of 4th day, and packed West Indies up before touching a double century on the score.Starting with 37-2 on the scoreboard, the immaculate Ben Stokes went all in with a swashbuckling performance. The 29 year old smashed 78 runs from 57 balls, which included four boundaries and three over boundaries.Advertisement While the skipper Joe Root lost his wicket on 22, and Ollie Pope tail ended with a score of 12, the astounding innings from Stokes, who kept his strike till the end, was enough for England to finish the day with 129 runs.With an staggering target of 312 at hand, Windies openers Kraigg Braithwaite and John Campbell marched to the pitch for the chase. However, the hosts bowling squad, lead by the iconic Stuart Broad, capped the chase at 198.Advertisement With three wickets in the second innings, Broad was the hero of the showdown. Bowling 15 overs, the 34 year old pacer picked up three, starting with the early dismissals of Campbell (4), followed by Shai Hope(7) and Roston Chase (6), all with a 2.80 economy rate.Braithwaite was lbw’ed on Chris Woakes’s delivery on a score of 12, the English all rounder who picked his second with Windies wicket keeper Shane Dorwich on zero.However, it was the partnership of Sharmarh Brooks and Jermaine Blackwood that helped West Indies gain pace. Brooks, who scored a 62 with four boundaries and two sixes, marched off against Sam Curran. With seven fours, Blackwood also impressed with a 55, until ending up on the hands of Jos Buttler facing Stokes.The visitor skipper Jason Holder tried to add some breathing room towards the end of the innings. The 28 year old scored 35 runs including five boundaries and a single six, until getting clean bowled by Dom Bess in the 63rd over.It was only single digit scores from the lower batting order of Windies, as Kemar Roach (5) and Alzarri Joseph (9) lost wickets early against Bess and Stokes respectively. Shannon Gabriel was the last man standing with a duck, as West Indies were packed up on 198 in the 71st over.Stokes was the hero of the English dressing room. With a stellar batting performance and picking two wickets, the vice captain was termed as the superhero ‘Mr Incredible’ by his teammate Joe Root.“He’s Mr Incredible. I suppose,” Root said after the match, “I certainly think he can keep performing at this level. I think the sky’s the limit for him really.”If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-Iceland cricket in disarray due to shortage of kits!Brett Lee: India vs Australia has no love lost – but on par with Ashes as pinnacle of cricket Advertisement

Texas Staffer Takes Shot At A&M, BaylorAs strange as it sounds, Baylor has been the dominant college football program in Texas over the last few seasons, and Texas A&M is still basking in the glow of its move to the SEC and the exciting Johnny Manziel era in College Station. Texas, meanwhile, is in the middle of a full rebuild under Charlie Strong, who enters his second season in Austin. That isn’t preventing Texas director of player personnel Mike Giglio from taking shots at Baylor and A&M. During today’s final day of the NFL Draft, Giglio used an ESPN clip to promote Strong-product Teddy Bridgewater over an unnamed Manziel, and took a shot at Baylor’s quarterback development after the Jets took Bryce Petty in the fourth round.Sounds like that’s what helped @teddyb_h2o become NFL Rookie of the Year instead of that spread QB taken before him pic.twitter.com/n1UGmGFlRb— Mike Giglio (@MikeMGiglio) May 2, 2015Not much teaching going on up there huh? @McShay13 said he identified fronts in HS! Come to ATX & learn to be a pro! pic.twitter.com/w7cIuiz2Dw— Mike Giglio (@MikeMGiglio) May 2, 2015The NFL Draft is a tremendous opportunity for top programs to promote themselves to fans and recruits. For the most part, they don’t do it by putting down rival teams, but Giglio doesn’t seem to have any issue with taking some shots today. [247Sports]

Al-Qahtaniya (Syria): A car bombing claimed by the Islamic State group killed five people, including three children, in a Kurdish-held town in northeast Syria on Wednesday, a war monitor said. The explosive-rigged vehicle detonated in Al-Qahtaniya, a town in Hasakeh province, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor. Hoker Arafat, a security official, said the bomb was detonated remotely in front of the town post office. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US”Three children were killed in the bombing because it was very close to a primary school,” he said. A member of the local security forces was wounded in the attack, he added. State news agency SANA also reported the bombing, saying it killed several people, including children. IS claimed the attack on its Telegram channel. The jihadist group routinely claims attacks in northeast Syria, despite its territorial defeat earlier this year. Such attacks have included arson against wheat fields and deadly car bombs. IS maintains a presence in the country’s vast Badia desert, as well as in areas controlled by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces in the country’s northeast and east. The SDF, backed by the war planes of a US-led coalition, announced the end of IS’ self-proclaimed “caliphate” in March in the village of Baghouz, in Syria’s far east.
Toronto: Taika Waititi’s version of Adolf Hitler in satirical comedy Jojo Rabbit is nowhere close to the real-life German dictator, but the actor-director said he felt “annoyed and ridiculous” when he dressed up as the character. The Thor: Ragnarok helmer said he never wanted to portray Hitler in an “authentic” way. “I was not prepared to go that deep. Also, because he’s an imaginary friend, he’s conjured by the mind of a 10-year-old boy, so he is a 10-year-old. The thing that struck me the most is that, as he’s putting on that costume and looking in the mirror and realising how childish and immature a lot of how they built their world was. If you look at the details on the uniforms, there’s lightning bolts on the belt buckles, a skull and crossbones on their hats. So it was like this make-believe type of thing, which is a boy’s fantasy when they were creating all that stuff. (But) It annoyed me a lot catching my reflection in the mirror and seeing myself. I felt so ridiculous,” Waititi said.
The Canadian Press SYDNEY, N.S. — A Cape Breton community has leaped into action following the sudden closure of a Sydney call centre that left nearly 700 people without jobs just three weeks before Christmas.In the wake of the ServiCom facility closure announced Thursday — following weeks of pay delays — another local business has decided to forgo its Christmas party, opting instead to donate the funds set aside for the bash to help the employees left stunned and jobless by the move.Seaside Communications, a telecommunications company based out of nearby Reserve Mines, has donated $10,000 to The Salvation Army Sydney Community Church, which is working to assist those affected through its food bank and Christmas assistance program.Seaside Communications CEO Loran Tweedie says the team decided to donate the money because of the “profound impact” the closure had on the tightly knit community.In an email, Nova Scotia Department of Labour and Advanced Education spokeswoman Shannon Kerr said the department has launched an investigation into the situation and is making it a priority.Nova Scotia Business Minister Geoff MacLellan offered a glimmer of hope for the affected staff on Friday, saying he was confident the call centre had a “bright future” after speaking with a prospective buyer Friday morning.

To watch the progress of the build; CLICK HERE BALDONNEL, B.C. – Grade 5 and 6 students at Baldonnel Elementary are being given an opportunity for hands-on learning with the construction of two sheds at their school.School District #60 has partnered with Petronas on a tool trailer that is taken out to schools to work on hands-on projects. This new Applied Skills and Technology curriculum is about project-based learning and takes students learning outside of the classroom.Brian Campbell, District Principal of Careers and International Education, shares schools are embracing the new curriculum.The storage sheds at Baldonnel are a great example of this. Students are learning math in the classroom and then going outside and applying their learning. Tradespeople from the school community are also coming in and lending a hand as well. Having the involvement of the parent community also gives the students valuable career exposure, shared Campbell.Christine Todd of Baldonnel School shares the kids are loving the experience and accomplished a lot on their first day. The plan is for the school to keep one shed and auction the other off. Proceeds from the sale of the second shed will go back into the school to help continue to fund project-based programs.Rona has helped with donating some of the building materials, and AAA Safety has helped provide safety equipment the students are using.Campbell shared, everyone, is looking forward to seeing the finished product.
