“He didn’t move; he wasn’t screaming; he didn’t try to resist; he was handcuffed” were the condemning words from Daniel Aguilar, a witness to the killing of 18-year-old Khiry Haslip of Southern California by police officers.

Police arrested Haslip last Wednesday after Riverside County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call for a man with a gun. Deputies chased him down and handcuffed him. After the officer’s backup arrived, Haslip rolled over, revealing that he was carrying a gun.

Witnesses say that after the deputies saw the weapon, they ordered Haslip to “get down”, then they shot him.

Byttany Haines, another witness, said that after he was shot, she started screaming and crying. She said she yelled, “Call the news, you guys can’t just do that to people”. Daniel Aguilar said that it looked to them that Haslip was killed immediately, “You hear one shot and he doesn’t move after that, you know he’s dead.”

Friends and neighbors have admitted that Khiry Haslip was a gang member, however none of them believe that a handcuffed man with his hands behind his back should have been shot and killed by police.

Dívida de Portugal rendeu 57% a quem nela investiu | Esquerda

 

Dívida de Portugal rendeu 57% a quem nela investiu

Enquanto os portugueses são esmagados pelo pagamento dos juros da dívida, há quem ganhe muito com ela. O ranking elaborado pela Bloomberg revela que o investimento em obrigações do tesouro português deu um retorno de 57%, o mais alto da Europa, quase o dobro do que renderam as obrigações da Irlanda.

Dívida de Portugal rendeu 57% a quem nela investiu | Esquerda.

Bancos e investidores que compraram títulos da dívida portuguesa tiveram uma rendibilidade excecional: 57% no ano de 2012, a mais alta da Europa, segundo oranking elaborado pela agência de informações económicas Bloomberg, em conjunto com a EFFAS – European Federation of Financial Analysts Societies.

Em segundo lugar aparecem os títulos da dívida irlandesa, que renderam 29,3%, seguindo-se a Itália (+20,75%), a Bélgica (+16,6%) e a Áustria (10,5%).

A Bloomberg afirma que 2012 foi o melhor ano de sempre para a dívida soberana europeia (retorno anual de 12%), o maior desde que a Bloomberg começou a reunir dados para esteranking, em 1999. A agência atribui este desempenho ao compromisso assumido em Julho pelo presidente do BCE, Mário Draghi, que prometeu “fazer o que for preciso” para salvar o euro.

“Portugal, Irlanda e Itália tiveram um excelente resultado”, disse à Bloomberg Mohit Kumar, chefe de estratégia no Deutsche Bank. “O apoio ao mercado fornecido pelo BCE afastou o risco de venda agressiva em qualquer dos mercados e uma rutura da zona euro”.

Os bancos portugueses foram os principais beneficiados deste retorno, porque compraram muitos títulos no mercado. Esta estratégia deu bons frutos às instituições financeiras e também aos pequenos investidores, cujo interesse em aplicar poupanças em dívida do Estado subiu, face às rendibilidades elevadas.

Three women killed in Swiss village shooting – latimes.com

Three women killed in Swiss village shooting – latimes.com.

Three women were shot and killed and two men were wounded before police in southernSwitzerland disabled the gunman by shooting him in the chest, officials said Thursday.

Police said the alleged assailant, an unemployed 33-year-old who had been treated for psychiatric problems in the past, was arrested and hospitalized after the rampage late Wednesday in the village of Daillon.

The man began firing from his apartment down toward the street and through the windows of other houses before coming outside and continuing to fire, police in the Swiss canton of Valais said in an online statement.

The three women killed, identified as 32, 54 and 79 years old, were all struck at least twice, police said.

“It’s inexplicable. It’s just unbelievable,” local government leader Christophe Germanier told reporters after the shooting, according to a recording from World Radio Switzerland.

Prosecutor Catherine Seppey told the station the alleged gunman had previously broken Swiss drug law; Valais police identified the crime as a marijuana offense.

Officials said it was unclear how the suspect obtained the two guns used in the killings, one a 20th century military rifle historically used by Swiss militiamen. Police confiscated his weapons when he went into a psychiatric ward in 2005; records show no weapons owned by the man since, authorities said.

The shooting could spur new questions about gun regulation in Switzerland, an affluent and largely peaceful country that has one of the highest rates of gun ownership in the world.

The country is often touted by gun-control opponents because it has relatively low levels of violent crime. However, researchers point out that Switzerland has stiffer regulations and fewer guns per capita than the United States, by far the world leader in gun ownership.

Most Swiss gun ownership is tied to military service, which is required for all men in the country, said Janet Rosenbaum, an assistant professor of epidemiology at the School of Public Health at theState University of New York Downstate Medical Center.

Some Swiss men store their military rifles at home, a practice rooted in the idea that Switzerland should have its militia at the ready for defending the nation. Militiamen are allowed to keep those guns after they serve.

Two years ago, voters rejected a proposed law that would have banned storing military rifles at home. However, under another, earlier law, military ammunition must be kept elsewhere.

Authorities say Swiss army weapons are involved in about 300 deaths annually, many of them suicides, the Associated Press reported Thursday.
