Police threaten to arrest Starbucks customer after mistaking her for different woman, body-cam footage shows

The San Pablo Police Department has released footage from a recent incident in which they threatened to arrest a Starbucks customer after mistakenly identifying her as someone trespassing in the store.

The footage, taken with the officer’s body-cam, shows police officers approaching two Starbucks customers at a Starbucks in San Pablo, Calif., on March 18. One of them is then heard questioning the couple, telling them the employees at the coffee shop had identified the female as a trespasser.

The male customer attempts to explain that the officer is mistaken, as the woman they sought had already left the store.

“OK, well, I just spoke to the employee, sir, and they said they don’t want her here either,” the officer says of the woman, whom police later identified as “Ms. Tamayo.”

The couple again tells the officer that he’s mistaken, and Tamayo is seen saying she only arrived at the Starbucks “three minutes ago.”

“Miss, that’s beside the point. They’re saying that they don’t want you here. So you can get up and go, or you’re going to be arrested,” the cop tells her.

“Oh wow, lawsuit. Lawsuit,” Tamayo responds.

“There’s not going to be a lawsuit with us,” another police officer says. “It’s them that want you to leave. Please leave now.”

Tamayo, now filming the scene on her mobile phone, refuses to leave, even after her companion offers to clear out.

An officer then speaks with an employee, who confirms that Tamayo was not the person the workers had called police about. That woman, the employee says, had “ran away” after the phone call.

The officer returns to apologize to Tamayo, who demands they arrest her, just as they had threatened to moments before. The male customer also says he will be reporting the incident to the federal government.

“Officers apologized for the confusion, explained that this was a miscommunication, and both officers left the business,” according to an on-screen message near the end of the video.

Police made footage of the incident public on April 17, in response to a complaint filed with the city of San Pablo, SF Gate reports. They also provided a synopsis of the clip’s content on Facebook, and concluded that “the event ended without incident.”

San Gabriel Police did not release the officer’s name.

A representative for Starbucks told Fox News that employees called police after allegedly seeing the male with a different female, who was behaving inappropriately, outside the store. He then came inside, and the woman left before police arrived. The male customer was later joined by Ms. Tomayo.

“At Starbucks, we take great pride in providing a warm and welcoming environment for everyone who enters our stores,” a spokesperson told Fox News. “Our partners never intended for this customer to be removed. We have reached out to the customer and shared our deep regret for their experience.”

A spokesperson for Starbucks further contended that the situation was the result of a misunderstanding on the part of the police, and not on the part of the Starbucks employees.

The March 18 incident comes nearly a year after police in Philadelphia arrested two black men for trespassing while they were waiting for a friend at a Starbucks. The men, Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson, had allegedly asked to use the bathroom before their friend arrived, and prior to making a purchase.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross had initially stated that the officers “did absolutely nothing wrong,” but later retracted those statements and apologized to Nelson and Robinson.

Starbucks too apologized, and scheduled company-wide racial bias training the following month. The company had also changed its policy to allow use of the bathroom regardless of whether customers make a purchase.

A German teenager has gone on trial for the fatal strangling of another boy who allegedly refused his advances.

German news agency dpa reported that the trial opened on Thursday with the defendant’s lawyer reading a statement in which the 15-year-old acknowledged responsibility for the 16-year-old victim’s death.

Prosecutors accuse the teen of strangling the older but weaker boy after they agreed to meet in a wooded area last October.

The killing prompted widespread shock in Germany.

The teenager on trial hasn’t been named due to his age. He faces a prison sentence of up to 10 years if he is convicted of manslaughter. A verdict is expected in June.

Apple’s secret lab where robots pull apart iPhones to invent ‘future of recycling’ revealed

Westlake Legal Group apples-secret-lab-where-robots-pull-apart-iphones-to-invent-future-of-recycling-revealed Apple’s secret lab where robots pull apart iPhones to invent ‘future of recycling’ revealed The Sun Sean Keach fox-news/tech/technologies/iphone fox-news/tech/companies/apple fnc/tech fnc Digital Technology and Science Editor da2ebea4-54bc-5305-89d0-91e6dfe21555 article

Apple has unveiled a brand new “secret lab” that aims to invent the future of recycling.

The sci-fi facility in Texas will use artificial intelligence and a squadron of robots to rip apart iPhones – all in a bid to save the planet.

It’s called the Material Recovery Lab, and has been set up for research and development to improve recycling tech for gadgets.

The 9,000-square-foot facility is based in Austin, Texas, and hopes to create “next-gen” ways of scrapping your iPhone.

Apple has promised to use “robots and machine learning” – including the Daisy recycling robot.

Apple announced the Daisy robots last year as a way to more efficiently disassemble the iPhone.

It’s since gone through several upgrades, and can now disassemble 15 different iPhone models at a rate of 1.2million per year.

Daisy robots are based all around the world, pulling out key metals and minerals that can be re-used on other gadgets.

The new lab will work with Apple’s own engineering teams, as well as scientists from universities.

Experts will be using large machinery that you’d typically find at a major electronic waste recycling facility.

The firm has essentially set up a replica of one of these facilities to improve how recycling takes place.

Better still, Apple has vowed to share its findings with other tech firms – allowing them to scrap gadgets in a more eco-friendly way too.

Apple says it set up the facility because no efficient recycling tech exists for some materials.

Apple also revealed that it’s made some significant improvements when it comes to making gadgets more ethically.

For instance, aluminum recovered through Apple’s Trade-In program is now being remelted into the enclosures of the MacBook Air.

And Apple is using 100 percent recycled tin for the main “logic boards” on 11 different products.

Media rip Barr in advance for holding a news conference

Even before William Barr’s appearance at the Justice Department this morning, he had been utterly vilified—for the sin of showing up to answer reporters’ questions.

There was, to be sure, more to it than that. By making his public appearance before the Mueller report was released, the attorney general appeared to be engaging in a partisan maneuver. He was, it was said, trying to frame the narrative in a way that would help the man who appointed him.

TRUMP BLASTS RUSSIA PROBE AS ‘HOAX’ AND ‘HARASSMENT’ AHEAD OF MUELLER REPORT RELEASE

But any attempt at spin would be short-lived at best, as journalists and members of Congress would see the anxiously awaited report about 90 minutes after the Barr presser.

Even before word leaked about the delayed release, which in my view was too cute by half, Barr was being savaged. The Washington lawyer who came into office highly respected—he had, after all, held the same job under George H.W. Bush—had shredded his credibility, according to the liberal indictment. Commentators at MSNBC were absolutely horrified that he would hold a news conference at all—and indeed, leading Democrats soon demanded that the AG cancel the session.

In other words, the pundits would be talking about Barr and his handling of the explosive report all day, but for him to publicly respond to questions was a bridge too far.

Sure, it would have been better to release the report first and make Barr available second. But the media uproar reflected the enormous anxiety in the runup to the report’s release, filled with days of speculation and advance conclusions about a document none of us had seen.

More concerning is a New York Times report that Justice Department officials had “numerous conversations with White House lawyers” about Mueller’s conclusions in recent days, helping the president’s legal team prepare its rebuttal report. And President Trump was leading the prebuttal, tweeting early this morning that “The Greatest Political Hoax of all time! Crimes were committed by Crooked, Dirty Cops and DNC/The Democrats.”

The net effect is that after the deputy attorney general named Robert Mueller to lead an independent investigation insulated from politics, the matter is back in the hands of Trump political appointees—in part because Mueller punted on deciding obstruction of justice charges, leaving the matter to Barr.

But all the advance spin and counterspin will be moot the moment the report comes out.

Man who bit hole in police officer’s ear sentenced to 13 years in jail

A man in England has been sentenced to over a decade behind bars for biting a hole in a police officer‘s ear as he tried to resist arrest last year.

Cheshire Police Department said in a news release Wednesday that 26-year-old Daniel Ward was sentenced to 13 years in prison and 4 years on parole after pleading guilty to wounding with intent, resisting arrest, and a public order offense.

Ward attacked the officer in the town of Runcorn near Liverpool on Dec. 14, 2018, as he was being arrested on suspicion of assault in connection to a robbery earlier in the year.

While resisting arrest, an officer’s ear was “completely bitten through,” and even after surgery may still have permanent damage, Sky News reported.

WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGE BELOW

After biting the officer’s ear, Ward had to be restrained and threatened to bite other officers, according to police.

“The nature of policing inevitably requires officers to deal with violent and challenging situations, but being assaulted by members of the public should never be looked upon as an acceptable ‘part of the job,'” Detective Constable Nathaniel Walkowiak said in a statement.

“Such incidents can have far-reaching effects, not only for the officer who has been assaulted and their loved ones but also for their colleagues and the communities we serve,” he added.

Ward also pleaded guilty to robbery and possessing an offensive weapon in a public place, after 2 teenagers had their bikes stolen at knifepoint in January 2018.

“The custodial service that Ward has been handed reflects the severity of the offenses he committed and I am pleased that he is now behind bars where he is no longer a threat to the public,” Walkowiak said.

Kentucky burglary suspect shot after breaking into home, allegedly undressing in child’s bedroom

A Kentucky man who allegedly broke into his neighbor’s home and took his clothes off in a 12-year-old girl’s room on Sunday was shot six times by the homeowner, according to officials.

Donald Oliver, 38, is charged with first-degree burglary, fourth-degree assault and heroin possession after breaking into the Louisville home around 7 a.m., according to court documents obtained by WDRB.

The girl’s mother, Tina Burton, told the television station her daughter was in bed when she heard a noise as Oliver broke into their home and began undressing.

“She was really smart,” she told WDRB. “She hid under the cover, turned her light down, turned her volume down on her phone to text me. When she peeked under the cover to see where he was at, she got up and ran away. She went to the back room. And I think that was really brave and smart of her.”

Oliver — wearing nothing but his underwear — then went from the girl’s bedroom to the kitchen where he encountered Burton’s boyfriend, Ali Bracey.

“I told him to get out, and he didn’t want to move. And he growled at me,” Bracey said

A physical struggle then broke out, with Bracey striking Oliver with a broom before he began to be overtaken “due to the suspect’s size,” according to an arrest report obtained by WDRB.

After yelling for help, Burton got a gun from her bedroom and handed it to her boyfriend, who then was able to get up and fire several rounds at Oliver.

Bracey said that other neighbors agreed with his use of force.

“Everyone has actually commended me on what I did. There hasn’t been any real backlash other than [Oliver’s] family,” he said. “But everyone in the neighborhood has commended me on what I did.”

Oliver was arrested a short time later and transported to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries before he was taken into custody, WDRB reported. When taking his clothes off in the home, police said that Oliver dropped a small bag of heroin.

During a court appearance on Monday, Oliver was in a wheelchair as a judge noted a lengthy criminal record and set a $50,000 bond.

Burton, who credited her oldest daughter’s quick thing from preventing something worse from happening, said she has no intention of moving out of the neighborhood anytime soon.

“We’re going to stay,” she told WDRB. “I’m not going to let anyone run me out of my home.”

‘Giant lion’ fossils discovered in museum drawer

Westlake Legal Group giant-lion-fossils-discovered-in-museum-drawer 'Giant lion' fossils discovered in museum drawer fox-news/science/archaeology/fossils fox news fnc/science fnc e9a6ab69-bb90-544c-8a39-f528bb44188d Chris Ciaccia article

Some people lose their car keys, others lose socks in the dryer. But have you ever lost a 22 million-year-old fossil?

An extinct species of giant mammal has been identified after its bones were discovered in a Kenyan museum drawer decades after being unearthed.

Known as “Simbakubwa kutokaafrika,” the “big African lion” was likely at the top of the food chain in Africa, researchers said in a statement. However, it was not “closely related” to any big cats and was a member of an extinct group of mammals called hyaenodonts.

FOSSILIZED REMAINS OF 430 MILLION-YEAR-OLD SEA MONSTER FOUND

“Opening a museum drawer, we saw a row of gigantic meat-eating teeth, clearly belonging to a species new to science,” the study’s lead author, Dr. Matthew Borths, said in a statement.

The findings have been published in the scientific journal Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.

It’s likely that the fossils found belong to “a relatively young adult” according to the study’s abstract, which adds that Simbakubwa differs from “Hyainailouros in exhibiting lingually oriented molar protocones, gracile metastyles, and buccolingually compressed, shearing canines.”

The teeth were used to estimate the size of the creature, Borths added, noting the mammal was likely bigger than a polar bear (with a body mass approaching 3,000 pounds) and had a skull larger than a rhinoceros. For comparison purposes, rhinoceros can reach up to 10 feet in length.

It’s unclear what caused Simbakubwa to go extinct, as Hyainailourines (part of the hyaenodont group which is unrelated to hyenas) “were some of the largest mammalian carnivores to ever walk the Earth,” Borths said in comments obtained by SWNS.

WOOLLY MAMMOTH MYSTERY SOLVED?

Despite it being lost for decades, sitting in a drawer, the fossils are likely to shed new light on an unknown species, as well as what life was like on the African continent before global ecosystems changed significantly between 18 and 15 million years ago.

“This is a pivotal fossil, demonstrating the significance of museum collections for understanding evolutionary history,” the study’s co-author, Dr. Nancy Stevens, added in the statement.

“Simbakubwa is a window into a bygone era,” Stevens continued. “As ecosystems shifted, a key predator disappeared, heralding Cenozoic faunal transitions that eventually led to the evolution of the modern African fauna.”

Attorney General William Barr will lead a press conference Thursday ahead of the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report into Russian effort to influence the 2016 presidential election and its ties to the Trump campaign.

Barr is expected to be joined by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. The release of the redacted report is expected later Thursday morning.

The decision to hold a press conference ahead of the report’s release sparked controversy among Democrats who claimed it was a move to shape the narrative surrounding the report. Some Democrats demanded Barr that cancel the press conference.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer issued a joint statement calling on the attorney general to testify.

“Attorney General Barr’s regrettably partisan handling of the Mueller report, including his slanted March 24th summary letter, his irresponsible testimony before Congress last week, and his indefensible plan to spin the report in a press conference later this morning — hours before he allows the public or Congress to see it — have resulted in a crisis of confidence in his independence and impartiality,” they said. “We believe the only way to begin restoring public trust in the handling of the Special Counsel’s investigation is for Special Counsel Mueller himself to provide public testimony in the House and Senate as soon as possible.”

Both lawmakers on Capitol Hill and members of the general public are on pins and needles as they wait for Attorney General William Barr to dump a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s nearly 400-page report on the Russia investigation Thursday.

Google searches for “Mueller report” spiked early Thursday — just before Barr was expected to take to a podium at a scheduled 9:30 a.m. ET news conference to present his interpretation of the report’s findings before releasing the full document to Congress.

IN MUELLER REPORT’S RELEASE, TRUMP LOOKS FOR VINDICATION, BUT NEW FIGHTS LOOM

Here’s what you need to know about the expected document dump.

What time will the Mueller report be released?

Barr took the stage to discuss his views on the materials at a 9:30 a.m. ET news conference, which is available to view via live stream.

After the news conference, the report will be delivered to Congress on CDs between 11 a.m. and noon and then posted on the special counsel’s website to the wider public.

Which portions will be redacted?

It’s currently unclear what documentation will be produced, but it’s up to Barr to determine how much information Congress will see.

It’s likely Barr will redact any information he deems inappropriate or harmful to a person’s character if he or she has not been charged with a crime. Classified information, grand jury items and closed-door testimony will also be protected.

At a later date, the Justice Department also plans to provide a “limited number” of members of Congress and their staff access to a copy of the Mueller report with fewer redactions than the public version, according to a court filing Wednesday.

During his confirmation hearing, Barr stressed that he would be as transparent as possible while following federal laws.

“I also believe it is very important that the public and Congress be informed of the results of the special counsel’s work,” he told the Senate Judiciary Committee in January, adding that he doesn’t believe Mueller would be involved in a “witch hunt.”

Why did Barr get to view the documents first?

When the investigation — which began in May 2017 — concluded, Mueller first released his final report to Barr, who was overseeing the special counsel since he took office in February.

“At the conclusion of the Special Counsel’s work, he or she shall provide the Attorney General with a confidential report explaining the prosecution or declination decisions reached by the Special Counsel,” Cornell Law School explains in a blog post detailing the federal regulations.

Throughout the two-year probe, Mueller has also been required to flag any documents that detail any impending prosecutions or witness interviews, among other actions.

Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen on Thursday promised to fill in the blanks on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation, hours before a redacted version of his report was due to be made public.

“Soon I will be ready to address the American people again…tell it all…and tell it myself!” Cohen tweeted.

MICHAEL COHEN ASKS HOUSE DEMOCRATS TO HELP KEEP HIM OUT OF PRISON

That tweet came after his attorney Lanny Davis, tweeted that Cohen “knows and can fill in the bulk of the redactions.”

“We will tell it all,” he promised.

Cohen is scheduled to report to jail next month to begin serving a three-year prison sentence after he pleaded guilty to tax evasion, fraud, lying to Congress and campaign finance violations.

He testified to Congress in February, branding Trump a “racist….a conman….a cheat” and expressing regret for having worked for Trump. In that testimony, he said he had “suspicions” that Trump’s presidential campaign colluded with Russia — though the special counsel apparently did not find such evidence.

Cohen’s legal team sent a letter to House Democrats this month saying he was still sorting through documents that might be of interest to House Democrats investigating President Trump, including emails, voice recordings, images and other documents on a hard drive. The lawyers said if Cohen reports to prison May 6 as scheduled, he won’t be able to finish reviewing the material.

They asked the lawmakers to write letters saying that Cohen was cooperating and that “the substantial trove of new information, documents, recordings, and other evidence he can provide requires substantial time with him and ready access to him by congressional committees and staff to complete their investigations and to fulfill their oversight responsibilities.”

Cohen’s lawyers said they were still holding out hope that federal prosecutors in New York not only would back another delay in the start of his prison term, but also would agree to reopen his case and advocate for a lighter sentence.

“It is our hope that the authorities in the Southern District of New York will consider this total picture of cooperation by Mr. Cohen, verified by your letter and the important new evidence he has made available or could make available to assist the government, and the particular facts involved here to grant Mr. Cohen a reduced term following the rules and procedures of the Southern District of New York.”
