Pregnant inmates sometimes mistreated in Montana jails, ACLU says

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 09/05/2014 - 06:17
Pregnant inmates in Montana's county jails have at times been shackled while in labor or forced to deliver their babies in detention without medical assistance, a civil rights group said in a report issued on Thursday. The report by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Montana highlights what it says are humiliating and unsafe practices tied to the treatment of pregnant inmates that have been broadly abandoned elsewhere in the nation but remain in place at some Montana detention centers. "Montana jails are woefully lacking in policies that will ensure pregnant prisoners get the medical care they need and are protected from abusive practices like shackling," ACLU of Montana head Scott Crichton said. The study cites a woman who was forced to deliver her daughter on an unsanitary booking room floor of the Yellowstone County Detention Facility in Billings in 2012 after several requests for medical aid were ignored.

From suburban Maryland, U.S. firm tracks gruesome jihadi videos

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 09/05/2014 - 06:17
By Peter Apps WASHINGTON (Reuters) - From an office in the Washington suburb of Bethesda, Maryland, a small team scans the Web 24 hours a day for jihadi videos often featuring gruesome executions by groups such as Islamic State.     On Tuesday, SITE Intelligence Services grabbed headlines when it found and alerted its subscribers to footage of the beheading of Steven Sotloff, the second American journalist to be put to death by IS in two weeks.     Founded by Iraqi-American Rita Katz, SITE has built up more than a decade of experience tracking extremist groups online for clients including government agencies of the United States and other governments, private firms and media outlets.     Katz would not disclose the number of staff but said it was a small and dedicated team. By monitoring file-sharing sites, Islamist forums and other obscure and often password-protected areas of the Internet, the firm says it has built up a sophisticated picture of how Islamic State and similar groups operate online.     "Our ability to find jihadist materials so quickly doesn't come from luck," Katz told Reuters.

Ex-fiancee of boxer Floyd Mayweather accuses him of online humiliation

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 09/05/2014 - 06:10

Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. sits with Shantel Jackson courtside at the NBA basketball game in Los AngelesBy Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s ex-fiancee filed a lawsuit on Thursday accusing him of humiliating her after their breakup by posting online a copy of a sonogram from when she was pregnant with twins and saying she had an abortion. The lawsuit filed by Shantel Jackson, 29, in Los Angeles Superior Court came little more than a week before the undefeated welterweight's Sept. 13 rematch against Marcos Maidana. Mayweather, 37, who served two months in jail in 2012 for domestic violence against another ex-girlfriend, Josie Harris, and verbal threats against two of their children, is widely regarded as the world's best pound-for-pound boxer. The legal action brought by Jackson, which says Mayweather violated her privacy, assaulted her and virtually imprisoned her at his Las Vegas home, threatens to distract from the athlete's return to the limelight.
