President Obama Gives Credit Of Safety To Police Officers

[Chicago]President Barack Obama Gives Credit Of Safety To Police Officers .
Chicago, like some other major US cities, is grappling with an alarming spike in violent crime.
In This City President Said to police chiefs that US safer because of your efforts.
Defended police officers who have come under scrutiny like never before, saying the men and women who risk their lives to provide security are wrongly “scapegoated” for failing to deal with broader problems that lead people to commit crimes.
Unemployment, poor education, inadequate drug treatment and lax gun laws are not the responsibility of police officers, Obama said in remarks to the International Association of Chief of Police, which held its annual meeting in the president’s Chicago hometown.
He blamed the news media’s tendency “to focus on the sensational” for helping to drive a wedge between police officers and a public they take an oath to protect and serve.
He called for rebuilding the trust that once existed between them.
Obama delivered his speech amid a roiling national debate about officers’ treatment of potential criminal suspects following the deaths of unarmed black men in New York, Missouri and elsewhere by police.
.President opened his remarks with a tribute to slain New York City police officer Randolph Holder as hundreds of officers streamed into his wake.
Holder, 33, died last week after being shot in the head by a man he and his partner were chasing. The officers had responded to a call of shots fired and a bicycle stolen at gunpoint.
A suspect is in custody on charges of murder and robbery in Holder’s killing.
As per White House Obama met with the families of law enforcement officers who were killed on the job,
He also met with relatives of victims of Chicago gun violence.

Toll Collecting Firm Refuses To Collect”ECC”From Trucks&Moves To Top Court

[New Delhi]Toll Collecting Firm Refuses To Collect”Environment Compensation Charge”From Trucks And Moves SC
SMYR Consortium LLP, which has been levying toll on behalf of MCD from commercial vehicles entering Delhi, today moved the Supreme Court expressing its inability to also collect the court-mandated ‘Environment Compensation Charge’ (ECC) from such vehicles.
The petition was mentioned for urgent hearing before a bench comprising Chief Justice H L Dattu and Justice Arun Mishra which said that it would hear it.
The plea of SMYR Consortium, which has a toll-collection pact with MCD, assumes significance as the apex court’s direction to levy Rs 700 and Rs 1,300 ECC will come into effect from November 1 and would remain operational for a period of four months till February 29, 2016 on “experimental basis”.
The Consortium has alleged that the levy of court-mandated ECC is beyond the terms of agreement entered into between it and the civic body.
The court had imposed the ‘Environment Compensation Charge’ on commercial vehicles entering Delhi, in addition to the toll tax, from November 1 for four months on a trial basis, in a bid to check high pollution levels in the city.
It had directed the Delhi Government to issue appropriate notification in this regard.
The bench, however had said that passenger buses, vehicles carrying essential commodities, food articles and ambulances would be exempted from paying the ‘environment compensation charge’.
Taking note of Centre for Science and Environment study that about 23 per cent of the commercial vehicles and 40-60 per cent of the heavy trucks entering the city were not destined for Delhi, the court had said it was necessary to impose the charges, along with the MCD toll, to equalize the difference in cost in travelling through alternative routes.

Mr CM It Was Not Raid But a”Preventive Measure”at Kerala House:DCP BS Bassi

[New Delhi] Mr CM It Was Not Raid But a “Preventive Measure” at Kerala House:DCP BS Bassi
Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi today rejected Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s contention that police “raided” Kerala House following a complaint that its canteen was serving beef and described police action as a “preventive measure”.
Bassi said that the Kerala House staff have apprised him of the absence of beef items on their menu list and that police personnel were deployed as part of preventive measures to prevent any sort of protest.
Bassi Told Reporters
“It was not a fact It was a preventive measure as per standing operating procedures.
He Added
“We had alerted their private security staff as soon as we got a call to prevent any protest. We also deployed possible security measures there and alerted the staff working there,”
On being asked about reports that the state guest house removed “beef curry” from their menu before police could reach, he said, “I don’t have any knowledge about it…we have been informed by the staff that there was no beef item on their menu list.”
Delhi top cop said.”We received a call by a person who had come into notice for taking law in his own hands. So, we alerted the staff working in Kerala house beforehand,”
Bassi cited the Delhi Agricultural Cattle Preservation Act, 1994, under which slaughter of cows, calves of cows, bulls and bullocks is illegal to justify police enquiry at Kerala House.
A PCR call complaining about beef curry being served at Kerala House here threw police into a tizzy yesterday and a team had to be sent there to avert any “untoward incident”.
The call was received by the police control room around 4.15 PM, and the caller, claiming to be from a fringe right-wing group, told the police that beef was being served at Kerala House.
The policemen took no chance and the input was immediately passed on to Parliament Street police station, from where a team was sent to Kerala House to deal with any potential violence.
