EDITORIAL/OPINION Publisher’s Column

Dr. Gloria Zuurveen Founder /Owner/ Publisher/Photographer

Hello Everyone, Happy New Year to you and your family. As I reflect back on this day 34 years ago, I recall my having endured 19 hours of hard labor delivering my one and only child, Malika Mead. It was a day I will always remember as it was also one where I was wishing like every expecting mother that evening of New Years Eve that I would be the blessed one in a special way other than the way I was being blessed by having a beautiful daughter. I was hoping and praying that she would have been the first one to be delivered in the hospital for the New Year. Well, she wasn’t but somehow the fact that she was born on New Year’s day has been, for me, a fascination because Malika always want to be first in every thing. She is constantly reminding me that she was the first to do this or she was the first to do that. She is always exciting about having done things first. She likes to be first and I guess when you were born first, that is, on New Year’s day, it is not unusual for one to expect to be first. So, on this New Year’s day I am so grateful and proud to say first, Happy Birthday to my daughter and friend, Malika Meads. May God continue to bless and keep you and that you will always believe that with God you can always succeed.

As 2016 Approaches, Housing Matters More Than Ever to Southern California Family Budgets By Lori Gay New Years is a joyful time for many families. Children and parents, siblings, aunts and uncles, grandparents and friends are gathering in homes around Los Angeles to spend time together, leaving behind their daily troubles to stop and recognize what’s important. To give thanks. Now half a decade removed from the Great Recession, when so many of these holiday celebrations were bittersweet, a number of positive economic developments cast a rosier glow in 2015. The national unemployment rate has fallen to 5.0%. In Los Angeles, the unemployment rate is falling, more residents have bachelors’ degrees than in previous years, and median household income ticked up 2.6% in 2014, according to a recent release of American Communities Survey data. These numbers are positive developments that should be celebrated. But as we join family and friends in homes around the Southland we need to recognize that these statistics are incomplete. A deeper look reveals that it is these very homes that divide our economy and create deep disparities. Housing is the largest chunk of most people’s monthly budget and says a lot about financial well-being; income may tell you how much a person has coming in, but housing costs tell you whether they have cash left over to spend at local businesses and whether they have to make hard choices between a mortgage payment and putting food on the table. So income and employment is only part of the picture; disposable income is just as, if not more, important. Moreover, whether a family is renting or owning is informative. It tells you whether that family is building equity and storing away savings that can be used later to create ladders of opportunity for their children to get a better education, to start their own business, or to retire comfortably, or whether that money is going into a landlord’s pocket, to no greater benefit of the tenant. For all of those reasons, the encouraging data should give us pause as we reflect on this past year. Families don’t have more disposable income, and don’t have opportunities to build wealth. Rents are eating up larger portions of most people’s budgets, and homeownership is largely out of reach. The new data showed that 36.7% of households in Los Angeles were homeowners last year, lower than any other major American city (other than New York), and it was also lower than in 2010, at the height of the foreclosure crisis, and lower than it was in 2000, before the period of risky lending that preceded the foreclosure crisis. Buying a house is harder and harder for an Angeleno family; the median home in Los Angeles was $505,500 in

2014, a 10.2% increase over the previous year, and the second year in a row that home prices jumped far faster than income. Estimates for 2015 show these prices continuing to rise fast. Renting is hardly a relief for former homeowners, as more and more renters are cost burdened (they pay over a third of their incomes on housing). In 2014, 61.8% of LA renters were cost burdened, while a third, or 32.9% of renters, spent over half their monthly income on housing. Nearly a quarter of homeowners spent over half their income on housing. This matters. Fewer homeowners and fewer affordable homes mean fewer people of modest means building assets to create opportunity for future generations while closing the wealth gap that divides Los Angeles across race and geography. Home matters a great deal; fewer affordable homes mean fewer people investing long-term in their neighborhoods and fighting for the services they need like schools, hospitals, grocery stores, and transit. It means worse health and educational outcomes. It means fewer people serving as anchors for their communities. It also means more people at middle incomes moving into the rental market than in previous years, tightening the market and keeping rents rising. These rising burdens are not abstract—they are real families struggling with unenviable choices, finding it harder and harder to stay in Los Angeles. So when we see a picture of an improving economy and neighborhoods booming with investment, we have to pause and remember the many people and places hidden from view. And these people and places still need help. They are dealing with rising rent burdens eating up more and more of their income, which will only get worse, according to a recent Harvard study. Projecting Trends in Severely Cost-Burdened Renters: 2015 ... www.jchs.harvard.edu And we as a City are missing a chance to close a widening wealth gap, as the reality of homeownership slips away for all but the most affluent. Rental housing is home to a growing share of the nation’s increasingly diverse households, but even with the strong rebound in multifamily construction, tight ...Los Angeles’ economy is indeed booming. But looking around at the despair among our region’s growing homeless population, or at families struggling under high rents and unable to reach the dream of homeownership, and we are reminded at how much home matters in making that growth a positive for everyone. Our city’s housing can be a means towards sharing this prosperity equitably and using it to lift people out of poverty and into a stable, sustainable life or it can continue to divide us. In 2016, the choice is ours to make.

Looking for What We Already Have By James Clingman Our seemingly endless conversations about what Black people “need to have” and “need to do” are nothing short of astounding—and confounding as well. Some of our people call radio talk shows and decry, lament, and complain about the lack of resources among Black folks. Others ask “how to” and “when” questions about issues, initiatives, and strategies “we need” to implement and champion; even when the host or the guest gives the answer some callers ignore it and go on another tirade about another issue, another deficiency, or another “Black people problem” and what “we need” in order to change our situation. Seeking internal instead of external relief, and relying on our own resources, is the practical way to solve most of our problems. The following quote illustrates my point. “Myopia is a deficiency of the eye, the inability to see clearly at a distance, or in this case, the lack of foresight. During the Harlem Renaissance many of the leading Black writers protested vigorously and complained without end that white publishing concerns would not, solely based on racial discrimination (today’s profiling) publish or even review their works. This of course was true and in many cases remains so. But what these august champions of race pride seemed to have overlooked, or could not see through their obsequious begging, was the UNIA’s publishing house, run by the African Communities League, located squarely in the heart of 135th Street, Harlem. At the time, books, pamphlets, newspapers and other materials were typeset, printed, bound and shipped to distant places on the globe through the UNIA’s book department. With over six million card-carrying members of the UNIA, the literary lights surely would have found a ready market for their products, without having to depend on white largess.” Amos Wilson, Afrikan Centered Consciousness vs the New World Order. Looking for rather than using what we already have has pushed us further down the economic ladder. Many of our “leaders” have come to depend on others to fund their organizations and their causes, thus causing them to be nothing more than little children who can be patted on the head and made to sit down, stand down, and shut up any time it fits the patriarch’s agenda. Black people have a tremendous amount of resources at our disposal, but so many of us continue that sad refrain of “we need” this and that, with-

out utilizing what we already have. That’s a prescription for failure, brothers and sisters. Aren’t you tired of failing? Don’t you want to chalk up a few wins? This country and this world respect power; that’s why you hear the terms “Buying Power” and “Voting Power.” These terms, however, are just euphemisms when applied to Black people. If that was not true Black folks would be well beyond the economic and political position we are in today. Power is not power unless it is utilized. Otherwise, how would any group ever know it had power? “Power is the ability to define reality and to have others respond to it as their [own] reality.” Dr. Wade Nobles As we refuse to use what we already have we deny ourselves the power to be self-reliant, self -determined, and self-directed. Just look back at examples of the economic resources we used to empower ourselves. Unfortunately we let it all slip away when we fell for the political game. We dropped everything and ran at warp speed toward getting Black people elected to public office, abandoning our economic base and abdicating our economic responsibility to future generations. Today, we hear the cry for more Black owned hotels, when we had a vehicle, Visions 2000, founded by Ernestine Henning and the Richard Allen Foundation, through which we could have built and owned more hotels, collectively. We say we need more Black banks, but fail to support the ones we already have. We should be growing our banks with our own deposits, thereby creating more opportunities for more of our people. How much of the millions held by Black organizations is in Black banks? Members of those organizations should insist on nothing less. For example, how much NAACP money is on account at Harbor Bank in Baltimore, Maryland, where the NAACP is domiciled? Same with other Black organizations. What about municipal funds and employee pension money? How much of that money resides in Black banks and Black owned financial management firms. We complain about Black churches and ignore what we already have in the Collective Empowerment Group. And last but certainly not our least resource is the One Million Conscious Black Voters and Contributors, www.iamoneofthemillion.com which addresses most of the problems Black people face today. What “we need” is available now; so stop looking for what we already have.

'Unforgettable' Singer Natalie Cole Dead at 65 By Bill Trott

(Reuters)—Grammywinning singer Natalie Cole, whose biggest hit came in a virtual duet with her late father, pop legend Nat King Cole, of his decades-old hit "Unforgettable" has died at the age of 65, her family said on Friday. The family's statement said Cole died Thursday night at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles from "ongoing health issues." Cole's career spanned five

The TMZ celebrity news website said Cole, who had struggled in the past with drugs, died from congestive heart failure following complications from a kidney transplant and Hepatitis C, diagnosed in 2008. "It is with heavy hearts that we bring to you all the news of our Mother and sister's passing," the Cole family statement said. "Natalie fought a fierce, courageous battle, dying how she lived - with dignity, strength and honor. Our beloved Mother and sister will be greatly missed and remain UNFORGETTABLE in our hearts forever.” The statement was signed by Cole's only child, Robert Yancey, and her twin sisters, Timolin and Casey Cole. Cole broke out in 1975 with the hit "This Will Be," which won the Grammy for best R&B female perfor-

mance and also earned her the Grammy for best new artist. Critics compared her to Diana Ross and Aretha Franklin but her career floundered in the 1980s when she ran into problems with heroin. She bounced back, and her career reached the superstar level in 1991 when she recorded "Unforgettable ... With Love." The album contained songs associated with her father, the silkyvoiced singer who was one of the most popular performers of the 1940s and '50s but died before his daughter began her solo career. Using technology that was cutting edge at the time, studio engineers merged her voice with her father's in the song "Unforgettable," which had been a hit for Nat King Cole in 1951. The result was a moving, sentimental No. 1 hit 40 years later, that actually sounded as if the two were singing a duet. The song and the album it came from earned Cole three Grammy Awards. "I thank my dad for leaving me such a wonderful, wonderful heritage," Cole said in accepting her awards. Cole's other hits included "Everlasting," "Sophisticated Lady," "I've Got love on My Mind," and "Good to Be Back." In all, Cole won nine Grammys. The success of "Unforgettable" capped her comeback after a dark period

of heroin addiction. In "Angel on My Shoulder," her 2000 memoir, Cole said she turned to drugs because of unresolved issues in her life, including being molested as a child and her father's death when she was 15. Cole was diagnosed with hepatitis in 2008 from sharing needles with drug addicts, and underwent kidney transplant surgery in 2009. This past fall, she canceled several concerts that had been scheduled for November and December, citing a recent medical procedure. Her 2008 album of pop standards, "Still Unforgettable," included another duet with her father, "Walkin' My Baby Back Home."Her most recent work was 2013's "Natalie Cole en Espanol." Cole's mother, Maria Cole, also had been a singer with the Duke Ellington and Count Basie bands. Cole portrayed herself in "Livin' for Love: The Natalie Cole Story," a 2000 television movie that depicted her drug addiction. "We’ve lost a wonderful, highly cherished artist and our heartfelt condolences go out to Natalie’s family, friends, her many collaborators, as well as to all who have been entertained by her exceptional talent," Neil Portnow, president of the Recording Academy, said in a statement.

Big night: Cole gets kisses from her husband coproducer Marvin Yaney (left) and coproducer Chuck Jackson, brother of the Rev. Jesse Jackson, (right) after Natalie at the 1979 American Music Awards "#NatalieCole, sister beloved & of substance and sound. May her soul rest in peace. #Inseperable," the Rev. Jessie Jackson posted on Twitter. Cole was married three times.

CHURCH & COMMUNITY NEWS New Study: God Ranks High in New Year’s Resolutions By Lisa Cannon Green NASHVILLE, Tenn. – In January, Americans resolve to cut the carbs, hit the gym — and get right with God. When Americans make New Year’s resolutions, a better relationship with God ranks almost as high as better health, Nashvillebased LifeWay Research finds. And for many groups, faith actually outranks health. Older Americans, African-Americans, Hispanics, and Christians are all more likely to say they’ve made resolutions about God than about health. Overall, 57 percent of Americans report making healthrelated New Year’s resolutions in the past, while 52 percent say they’ve addressed their relationship with God. Those are the top two responses in a LifeWay Research survey of 1,000 Americans. “We don’t hear a lot of talk about it, but a relationship with God is still something people want,” said Scott McConnell, vice president of LifeWay Research. “They have time at the holidays to think, and they realize what they didn’t do last year — things they value but are not living out. So they start the year with an aspiration to change.” Topics of resolve While health and faith are the leading topics for New Year’s resolutions, Americans also report addressing their use of time (43 percent), relationships with a family member (42 percent), finances (37 percent), work (33 percent), and relationships with a friend (31 percent). Many of the issues overlap as people aspire to improve themselves, McConnell said. “Use of time is probably the best measure of priorities,” he said. “And investing in a relation-

ship with God may encourage people to address other priorities as well, such as spending time with family or fixing their finances.” However, more than 1 in 5 Americans (21 percent) say they haven’t made New Year’s resolutions on any of the topics. Men appear less resolution-minded than women, according to the survey. Fully a quarter of men report no resolutions, compared to 17 percent of women. Meanwhile, women are more likely than men to say they’ve made resolutions about their health (62 percent vs. 52 percent), relationship with God (58 percent vs. 47 percent), and use of time (47 percent vs. 39 percent). Resolutions of faith Americans with evangelical beliefs are among the most likely to make New Year’s resolutions about their relationship with God, the survey shows. Faith trumps health by a wide margin for them: 72 percent say they have made resolutions regarding God, while 56 percent have addressed their health. Most evangelical believers (51 percent) also report New Year’s resolutions about their use

of time. “For an evangelical, faith should be integrated into every area of life,” McConnell said. “Not every resolution will be about having a relationship with God, but their relationship with God should be affecting what they do in other areas.” In contrast, only 43 percent of those who do not hold evangelical beliefs have made New Year’s resolutions about their relationship with God, and 39 percent have addressed their use of time. Resolutions about a relationship with God are widespread among African-Americans (73 percent) and Hispanics (63 percent). In addition, 61 percent of Christians, 59 percent of Southerners, and 56 percent of Americans 55 and older say they have made resolutions regarding God. “In January we always hear about health-related resolutions. We don’t hear as much about people’s concern for their relationship with God,” McConnell said. “But this research shows faith has a prominent place in New Year’s resolutions. Many people want to take steps to make God a greater part of their lives.”

“Maybe God Will..!” God answered Jonathan’s “maybe” with a “definitely.” That’s because his cause was just, his faith was strong, he had a heart to do God’s will, glorify His name and bless His people. To step out on a “MAYBE” you must know that your motive is right, that you have prayed and searched the Scriptures and that you have been willing to listen to godly counsel. A “MAYBE” doesn’t give you the right to be presumptuous, or ask God to rubber-stamp your personal agenda. Sometimes when we want something to happen, we presume God does too. Up until this point Israel went to war based on a plan, a prophecy, or a well-thought-out strategy. But SOMETIMES GOD-GIVEN OPPORTUNITIES COME TO YOU “ON THE FLY,” and IT TAKES FAITH AND WISDOM TO KNOW HOW TO RESPOND TO THEM. In those “maybe moments” you can’t wait for guarantees or sit still and do nothing because your actions, or lack of, involve risk. You can’t fear natural circumstances, obstacles or frightening situations: “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind (2 Tim 1:7 NKJV). You must take the “MAYBE” you’ve been given and DO SOMETHING WITH IT, for that’s when you begin to see God turn your “MAYBE” into A MIRACLE. Once you know that your heart is right before God, you must be willing to face your fear and seize the moment. When you’re in a moment that has the potential to alter your future, TRUST GOD, STEP OUT IN FAITH AND MOVE FORWARD. Don’t let your dream die inside you because of the risk involved. With God, risk is the bridge that gets you to where He wants you to be. WHEN YOU CHANGE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT THINGS (MAYBE GOD WILL), THE THINGS YOU LOOK AT WILL CHANGE (I BELIEVE HE WILL)!! NEW YEAR INSPIRATION: RECEIVE TODAY GOD’S THREE GREATEST GIFTS TO MANKIND (1) POWER, (2) LOVE, AND (3) A SOUND MIND.

HEALTH & COMMUNITY NEWS Human-Like Robot 'Nadine' Who Has a 'Personality, Mood and Emotions' Unveiled in Singapore By Avianne Tan Scientists at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have unveiled "Nadine," a socially intelligent, human-looking robot complete with "her own personality, mood and emotions," according to a university news release. The humanoid "receptionist" was presented at a new media showcase Tuesday at NTU, where her human creator, professor Nadia Thalmann, predicted that "physical social robots such as Nadine are poised to become more visible in offices and homes in future." Nadine was created to be a doppelganger of Thalmann, according to NTU's news release, which said the "humanoid" has "soft skin and flowing brunette hair. She smiles when greeting you, looks at you in the eye when talking, and can also shake hands with you." The bot "can be happy or sad, depending on the conversation" and she "also has a good

Global Trouble By Dean L. Jones, CPM Increasingly, public health advocates denounce the consumption of processed sugar, often making the comparison to smoking cigarettes in terms of the danger it poses to health. In general, added sugar is trouble to our heart, weight, and insulin health. The following is a reminder of the significant sugar issues globally discussed in 2015. The Scientific American Magazine reported on how processed sugar and fat trick the brain into wanting more food. Junk foods can muddle the brain's satietycontrol mechanism, thereby sending a person's appetite into hyperdrive. USA Today published recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention studies on how added sugar increases your risk of death from heart disease. Consequently, processed sugar not only makes a person fatter, it may also be the cause of death from heart disease. ABC News gave international data that for every additional 150 calories of added sugar downed per person per day, the prevalence of diabetes rose by 1%, and people who ate the most added sugar more than doubled their risk of death from heart disease. The New York Times Magazine stated how sugar is a toxin or a poison and a likely dietary cause of several other chronic ailments, including heart disease, hypertension and many common cancers among them. It referenced a new movie called “That Sugar Film” dealing with the hazards of consuming too much added sugar, which can be found in an estimated 80% of all supermarket foods. One of several Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC) News articles addressed how sugar added to food is causing greater obesity, which was narrated by U.S. journalist Katie Couric. It placed considerable blame on food manufacturers (ketchup, pasta sauce, salad dressing, breakfast cereals, juice and energy drinks, baked goods, yogurt and even baby formula) for fuelling a sugar dependency that is creating a global obesity epidemic.

Dean L. Jones Equally, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) News featured scientific experts that want sugar intake to be cut in half to reduce obesity risk and improve dental health. A committee of scientists has advised the British government to halve the current recommended daily intake of sugar, where no more than 5% of daily calories should come from added sugar, or about seven teaspoons. Children are manifesting increased rates of adult diseases like hypertension or high triglycerides, not to mention type-2 diabetes and fatty liver disease. A televised documentary showed how after just 10 days of eliminating sugar from the diet, obese children improved their blood pressure, cholesterol readings and other markers of health. All of the children considerably reduced their risk of diabetes, as their blood sugar and insulin levels normalized. As monitored, processed sugar is trouble for the world's population. In 2016, this weekly column will continue to comment on the dastardly effects derived from excessive sugar consumption. And so, have a very SugarAlert New Year! www.SugarAlert.com Dean is a marketing strategist with the Southland Partnership Corporation (a public benefit organization), sharing his view on mismanagement practices of packaged foods & beverages.

future," Thalmann said, according to the NTU news release. "This is somewhat like a real companion that is always with you and conscious of what is happening," she added. "So in future, these socially intelligent robots could be like C-3PO, the iconic golden droid from 'Star Wars', with knowledge of language and etiquette." A video posted to NTU's Facebook page shows Nadine recognizing Thalmann and engaging in conversation with her. The video had over 25,000 views as of this afternoon. Another robot named "EDGAR" was also unveiled by NTU, which described him as a "tele-presence robot" that can copy and project the upperbody movements and facial expressions of its human user, deliver speeches by "by autonomously acting out a script," and track "people he meets to engage them in conversation." Though hundreds of social media users have made simi-

lar comments about the robots being "creepy," "scary," and "potentially dangerous," many experts believe these fears will go away over time as the technology becomes more popularly used. "A yew years ago, people's biggest worry about technology was privacy, now it's robots taking over the world," said Carlos Guestrin, a professor of machine larning at the Computer Science & Engineering Department of the University of Washington. Guestrin told ABC News that he believes "we're far from developing human-like technology that could have a negative impact" and that as advances in AI in the near future will likely have "a more positive impact." "Self-driving vehicles are making vehicles safer, automation and smarter devices are making homes safer," he said. "I think AI, especially those that can see and understand emotions, will be helping us with a wide range of tasks and making a lot of lives better."

NEWS Chicago Prosecutor Asks for FBI Help On Police Shootings By Mary Wisniewski and Justin Madden From Reuters Chicago's top prosecutor on Thursday said she asked the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation to help probe the fatal police shootings of two black residents over the weekend, as protesters renewed calls for the resignation of Mayor Rahm Emanuel. The unusual step ramps up pressure on the Chicago Police Department, which is already the subject of a U.S. Department of Justice civil rights investigation over its use of deadly force, especially against minorities. Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez said on Thursday she wants help investigating the shootings of Bettie Jones, a 55-year-old mother of five, and Quintonio LeGrier, a 19-year old college student, by a single Chicago police officer. Police, who were responding to a call that LeGrier was threatening his father with a baseball bat, have admitted that Jones' shooting was accidental.

"This is a deeply disturbing incident that demands a very deliberate and meticulous independent investigation," said Alvarez. Shootings of blacks by mainly white police officers in several cities over the past 18 months have led to protests across the country. Cleveland is expecting to see its fourth day of demonstrations following a decision on Monday not to charge officers who shot and killed a 12-year-old boy playing with a toy gun. In Chicago, protesters

at City Hall on Thursday punched a papier mache effigy of the mayor's face and chanted "Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Rahm Emanuel has got to go." They also planned a protest in front of Emanuel's house. Protests against both Emanuel and Alvarez have been staged almost daily since late last month when the nation's third-largest city released video showing a white Chicago police officer, Jason Van Dyke, shooting a black teenager 16 times in

October 2014. Van Dyke was charged on Nov. 24 with Laquan McDonald's murder and this week pleaded not guilty. Critics say it took too long to both charge Van Dyke and release the video. The weekend shootings of Jones and LeGrier increased tensions in Chicago, forcing Emanuel to return early from a family vacation to deal with the fallout. Emanuel on Wednesday announced that Chicago police will get new equipment - including generally non-lethal Tasers - and training to help them defuse tense situations and limit use of lethal force. Hundreds of protesters also gathered on Thursday on Chicago's most prestigious shopping district, called the Magnificent Mile, to protest all gun violence. Chicago has seen 2,360 shootings in 2015, up 17 percent over 2014. Among the marchers was Lutrice Boyd, whose son Frederick James Giles III, 21, was killed in 2012. "I haven't been whole since my child has left," said Boyd. (Reporting by Mary

NATIONAL/STATE & REGIONAL NEWS Former Michael Jackson Attorney Goes Off on Cosby Charges: ‘I Just Can’t Believe It Happened’ By J. D. Durkin From Mediaite.com Tom Mesereau, the former attorney for pop singer Michael Jackson, told CNN today that the prosecution in the case of Bill Cosby will have a difficult time proving guilt. Mesereau, who was hired by Jackson about nine months before his own criminal trial in 2005, spoke to CNN’s John Berman of how prosecutors will have a difficult time proving “beyond a reasonable

doubt” that the comic legend is guilty of the crimes levied against him. “It’s deja vu!” Mesereau claimed, linking the current accusations against Cosby to those against the pop star over a decade ago. “It comes down to credibility,” said Mesereau, noting that the woman in question — a former Temple University employee — has been seeking financial gain through the case.

Oregon Court Reinstates Patrolman Who Shot To Death Unarmed Black Man By Courtney Sherwood Portland, Ore.—The Portland police must reinstate a white officer who was fired in 2010 after he fatally shot an unarmed black man in the back, an Oregon state appeals court has ruled, officials said on Thursday. Portland Police Bureau officer Ron Frashour was fired for shooting 25-year-old Aaron Campbell after the suspect's girlfriend had called police to her apartment over concerns that he was suicidal. The Oregon Court of Appeals sided with a labor dispute arbitrator in ruling on Wednesday that the city must rehire Frashour. It was unclear when Frashour would return to active duty, and in what role, though the police department said he would undergo extensive training. The ruling comes at a time when most U.S. police receive little or no training on how best to handle crises involving the mentally ill despite the growing frequency of such encounters and the fatal results in a number of recent cases. It also came the same day Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel told reporters his police force would get new training to defuse tense situations and limit use of lethal force amid protests over fatal police shootings. Shootings of black men by police officers across the country over the past 18 months have led to

national protests and the issue has fueled a civil rights movement under the name Black Lives Matter. In Oregon, after Frashour was terminated, he filed a grievance through the city's police union and in 2012 a state arbitrator ruled that he should be reinstated, according to court records. He was then paid back wages and placed on paid administrative leave while Portland appealed that ruling. The court said Portland's argument that the arbitrator made a "mistake of law or fact" in the way she interpreted the department's useof-force policies was not legal grounds for overturning the arbitrator's decision. "I am disappointed the court blocked the city's efforts to terminate an officer who used force inappropriately," Portland Mayor Charlie Hales said. The Albina Ministerial Alliance, a community group that for years has advocated for police reform in Portland, decried the appeals court ruling and asked that Frashour be assigned to a position that minimizes his contact with the public. Neither Frashour, nor an attorney representing him, could immediately be reached for comment. (Reporting by Courtney Sherwood in Portland, Oregon; Editing by Eric M. Johnson and David Gregorio)

Tom Mesereau

“They’re going to have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that this woman was drugged against her will — which I just can’t believe happened… that a man his age wanted to have sex with her while she was unconscious and under drugs. It doesn’t make any sense to me.” “Financial motive can come into the question of bias:

what motivates someone to make claims and why were they willing to take money and go away? There’s a lot more to this than what meets the eye at the moment,” Mesereau continued. “The media’s just swarming the prosecutor’s press conference.” Mesereau noted that the defendant would be “subjected to withering attacks on the witness stand”. He told

CNN that the women accusing Cosby have evidently, “jumped on a bandwagon… you may see them devastated in the courtroom.” He then made the link between the victims of the Cosby accusations to the reported victims involved during the Michael Jackson case, noting “One witness was destroyed after another.”

No Plea Bargain for 'Not Guilty' Bill Cosby, Lawyer Says Comedian Bill Cosby's lawyer said on Thursday that the entertainer would not consider a plea bargain on charges he sexually assaulted a woman in 2004 after giving her drugs and alcohol. Lawyer Monique Pressley, speaking on NBC's "Today Show," also accused the district attorney's office in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, of playing "political football" with Cosby by making the case a focal point in a recent election. Asked if the defense was open to a plea agreement, Pressley replied: "My client is not guilty, and there will be no consideration on our part of any sort of arrangement." Cosby, 78, was charged on Wednesday in the only criminal case brought against the actor, who has been accused by more than 50 women of sexually abusing them in incidents dating back decades. Pressley said she expected prosecutors would try to establish a pattern of conduct against her client by bringing in allegations from his other accusers, but the defense would fight to keep such evidence out. "I believe when you separate what happens in the court of law from what has been allowed to happen in the fictional court of public opinion, you will get an outcome that justice requires," she said on NBC. Cosby, who exemplified the model family man in his long-running hit television series "The Cosby Show," was charged with aggravated indecent assault which carries a maximum penalty of 5 to 10 years in prison. The charge stems from accusations leveled by Andrea Constand, 44, a former basketball team manager at Temple Univer-

Actor and comedian Bill Cosby (R) speaks to attorney Monique Pressley as they exit the Montgomery County Courthouse after Cosby was arraigned on sexual assault charges in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania December 30, 2015. REUTERS/Mark Makela sity in Philadelphia, Cosby's alma mater. She settled a civil case against Cosby for an undisclosed sum in 2006. Constand, who now lives in Toronto, has declined to speak to reporters but she tweeted on Thursday, "Let's all stay classy plz! That includes anybody who may be inserting their opinion as to whether anything was fully investigated period." Lawyer Gloria Allred, who represents some of the other women who have accused Cosby or drugging or assaulting them, said on Wednesday that word of the charges "is the best Christmas present they have ever received." Model Beverly Johnson, who has accused the comedian of drugging her in the mid-1980s, said on Twitter: "When it comes down to it, truth is simple. There is nothing that we give to others that does not come back to us in some shape of form." Another of the comedian's accusers, Beth Ferrier, told People magazine on Thursday that

the charges against Cosby were "the moment we've all been hoping for." "I'm totally doing back flips. It has been such a totally horrific journey," Ferrier added. Kevin Steele, the newly elected Montgomery County district attorney, had made his intent to prosecute Cosby a campaign issue in November. His office filed the case against before the statute of limitations deadline for criminal prosecution was due to lapse in January. "First, before we even have to mount a defense, we'll have to look at the game of political football that this Montgomery County DA's office has played with my client's life," Pressley told ABC's "Good Morning America" show.
