Martese Johnson brutalized by Alcoholic Beverage Control police, March 18.Martese Johnson, a 20-year-old African American, has been added to the already too-long list of victims of brutal, racial profiling by the police. Unlike the stolen lives of Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Ramarley Graham, Jessie Hernandez and countless other youth of color, Johnson survived to bravely tell the world that his Black life matters.Johnson is a University of Virginia (UVA) junior and an elected representative to the Honor Committee, where he serves as vice chair for community relations at the school. He was violently attacked by three white police agents of the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) in the early morning of March 18 outside the Trinity Irish pub, adjacent to the campus.In Virginia, there are 100 statewide agents who have been assigned full police powers to deter underage drinking and enforce liquor laws in the state’s bars and restaurants. The campus administration requested that the agents monitor underage drinking mainly among fraternity houses, where women are routinely sexually assaulted during parties.In this instance, Johnson was arrested on misdemeanor charges of “obstruction of justice” and “public intoxication” after he was refused entrance to the pub.The ABC claimed that Johnson attempted to show a fake ID to get into the pub. Johnson’s lawyer, Daniel Watkins, refuted that argument at a March 19 press conference. The ABC also claimed that Johnson was “belligerent” and “intoxicated” following his arrest.The co-owner of the pub, Kevin Badke, stated that Johnson was “cordial” and “respectful” and was not intoxicated when he was refused entrance to the pub because he did not verbally give the zip code that exactly matched that on his Chicago ID. (abcnews.go.com, March 22) Moments later, Johnson was attacked by ABC agents.A video was taken of Johnson, with his head bloodied, forced to lay on his stomach with three police officers’ knees on his back, and being handcuffed. He said repeatedly, “I go to UVA,” and, “This is racist,” as horrified onlookers saw the assault. Johnson was so badly hurt that 10 stitches had to be applied to his head.As the images of the police assault went viral on social media, especially on Twitter under the #BlackLivesMatter, at least 1,000 angry students spontaneously gathered outside of the bar in solidarity with Johnson. The protest mushroomed to such a degree that an emergency meeting was held at Newcomb Hall on UVA’s campus between mainly Black students, local police chiefs and even Virginia’s Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security Brian Moran. The students wanted to know why three white ABC officers brutalized Johnson. When they did not get the answers they sought, more than 100 of them stormed out of the meeting shouting “Black lives matter!”The students marched to the African-American Affairs Office across campus, chanting “No justice, no peace! No racist police!” Johnson was marching with them and spoke at their rally.Not an isolated incidentAryn Frazier, an activist in the campus-based Black Student Alliance, stated at the same rally, “These incidents are not isolated. Not in Charlottesville, not in New York and not across the nation. Instead, they are products of a very sick justice system. Though what happened to Martese is horrible, it has been a problem in Charlottesville long before this. If we don’t do something right now, we are going to have it long after.” (Washington Post, March 20)What happened to Johnson is part of the ongoing racist legacy of the UVA, which was founded in 1819 by Thomas Jefferson, a slaveholder. The school was built on the backs of enslaved African people. In 2007, the university’s governing board approved a resolution of “regret” for the school’s superexploitation of slaves.But as the treatment of Johnson shows, the legacy of white supremacy is alive and well on UVA’s campus and in the Charlottesville community. For instance, in 2004, the Charlottesville police asked Black men to “voluntarily” provide their DNA samples as part of a search for a serial rapist.Black students also point to the double standard of treatment by the police and the media, as in the cases of two missing youth. Hannah Graham’s case gained much notoriety. She was a white student who was missing for five weeks in 2014 until her body was found. A similar case in 2012 concerning a missing local Black teenager, Dashad “Sage” Smith, has gone virtually unnoticed.Due to the pressure of the growing protests by Black students and their allies, the school administration has called for an investigation of the ABC’s intimidating tactics.The Johnson incident brought to light what occurred in April 2013 with another UVA student, Elizabeth Daly. The ABC confronted her at gunpoint for supposedly illegally transporting beer. It turned out to be sparkling water. She won a lawsuit against the ABC and was granted $200,000.Black students, who are about 6 percent of the UVA’s 16,000 undergraduate student population, have complained of being racially profiled in the bar area known as the “The Corner” and also in the fraternity house section.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

How to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees? Related Posts It’s no secret that passwords as a sole security feature are starting to be phased out and clever techniques like two-factor authorization are becoming more commonplace. But two-factor authentication can be too clever for it’s own good: In a system where access is granted based on something you know (the passphrase) and something you have (a cellphone or key), what happens if you actually lose the something you’re supposed to have?This is not an uncommon problem. In the office, keys and key cards get lost all the time. And how many of us have done the walk of shame in sweats and bunny slippers down to the hotel lobby when we tried to set our tray out in the hallway only to hear the door mockingly click shut behind us?And that’s just one-factor authorization, where you need only the key to get in. How much worse will it get when security from the physical world will be required to access the virtual world?In the workplace and elsewhere in the real world, acquiring a new key is usually not that hard. You go talk to the building manager or security in the office and get your new physical token. Lose the keys to your car, you call a significant other with a copy of the key, or call the dealer. All of these workarounds do the trick because you’re physically present and can explain the circumstances to some sympathetic soul (bunny slippers help, trust me).But what happens when you lose the physical element of two-factor authentication for an online service? You can’t exactly call them up and get your access restored. Or, at least, you shouldn’t be able to do that.So what is the plan when you lose the physical piece of two-factor authentication?Why The Rigmarole?This is not just academic exercise for me – for the last couple of days someone keeps trying to reset my Twitter account’s password, and (for now) I’m resting easy in the knowledge that whoever’s doing it can’t get into my email account to pick up a legitimate reset password link (and I’m not clicking the links on what are probably phishing emails).This is the primary reason why it’s a good idea to implement two-factor authorization. Even if someone does manage to find out your password for an account, they can’t log in to your account and start changing passwords or use your account to start gathering information on your personal and financial life. Not without the physical token.In my case, the token is my Android phone, which is using the Google Authenticator app to generate time-based verification codes that I enter if I log into my Google accounts (and others I’ve got the app tracking). I had been using the “Send code to SMS” option, but that proved troublesome when trying to log into Google in buildings where cell access was a problem. The app continuously creates new codes, regardless of connection.If I lose my phone, it’s going to be a pain, but not the end of the world.Follow The PlanFirst, Google recommends that I find a computer that has already logged into my accounts. I have one machine, my primary office computer, that Google remembers for 30 days at a time. I can get into that and start performing the tasks that need to be done. Even if I am away from home, I can call a family member and walk them through the process.The very first thing to do if you lose the phone (er, token) is get connected to the accounts for which the phone is being used for two-factor authentication and change the password. Most of the time a phone is lost, it’s just that: lost. And, even if it were stolen, most of the time it’s going to be taken by some numbskull who will soon be taking pictures of themselves and their friends so you can track them down and take it back. Still, better to be safe than sorry.Once you change your main password, Google recommends that you revoke any application-specific passwords you granted to apps on the phone. If you get your phone back, you can always give the phone a new application-specific password.If you don’t have access to a computer that’s already logged in to Google or is within that 30-day remembering period, you have two options:For Google Apps users, when Google is handling your email and other services but using your domain, not gmail.com, the fastest thing to do is contact your Apps administrator and have them turn off two-factor authentication so you can log into your account straight away to change your password and revoke access to your account.If you are not an Apps user (or can’t seem to get a hold of your administrator), you can have codes sent to your backup phone. If you haven’t set up a backup phone on your Google account, it’s a good idea to do it.The other option is to use one of the 10 printable codes that Google makes available to your account. I personally don’t use this option, but keeping an unlabeled piece of paper around that has a random set of numbers is not likely to be a huge security risk.Losing the physical part of your two-factor authentication will be a pain, just like losing a key for a physical lock would be. That’s kind of the point, in some ways. But most services using two-factor authorization will have procedures in place to help you work around the situation. Check your two-factor services and make sure you’ve done everything you need to do to prepare for the inevitable loss of your physical token.Image courtesy of Shutterstock.

For 26-year-old Jyotirmoy Mukherjee, an ideal winter afternoon means playing a good game of cricket. And even though he bats well, bowling is his passion. So what makes this Howrah boy different from the average young man who loves to toss around a ball? For the last seven years, Jyotirmoy,For 26-year-old Jyotirmoy Mukherjee, an ideal winter afternoon means playing a good game of cricket. And even though he bats well, bowling is his passion. So what makes this Howrah boy different from the average young man who loves to toss around a ball? For the last seven years, Jyotirmoy has been an inmate at Presidency Jail, or “correctional home” as they are called in West Bengal-serving a life sentence for murder. He suffers from bouts of depression due to the social ostracism. “There is a huge stigma attached to being imprisoned and we find a staggering number of inmates suffering from mental illnesses,” says B.D. Sharma, ADGP, Correctional Services.To alleviate this sense of dejection, the Rotary Club of Central Kolkata and Satyam Seva Kendra are conducting “a social experiment”. The Rotarians recently played a cricket match against inmates of three prisons and are planning to host an inter-jail cricket tournament soon.They also plan to introduce employment opportunities for inmates, which will continue even after they are released from prison. “We are working on a programme whereby the inmates can take up tailoring of hosiery goods,” says Mudar Patherya, member, Rotary Club. “It’s a win-win situation. The inmates will be able to earn 10-fold more than their current wages while decreasing the cost of production for companies which will outsource the work.””Competitive sports and other activities help us feel normal. It doesn’t feel like a jail,” smiles 29-year-old Dhirendra Kumar Jha, who is under trial for kidnapping and murder and has already spent seven years in prison.advertisement

Few have demonstrated the truth of this cliche better than the four young athletes of the Indian team that participated for the first time in last month’s Special Summer Olympics for the Mentally Retarded in Louisiana in the US.The triumphant team – all mentally retarded children – from Bombay, returned with a bag of four medals. Sulochana Rodrigues, 19, captured two golds in the 50 m dash and Softball throw. Pramod Khadye, 17, won a silver in the long jump event, and Kennedy Sutare, 16, a bronze in the Softball throw. Shivaji Gholape was the fourth member.Earlier this year, the Association for the Welfare of Persons with Mental Handicap organised its annual sports meet for mentally handicapped children in association with the Lions Club. Of 28 winners, four were selected to undergo intensive training at camps in Delhi and Nhava Sheva, in preparation for the international meet.Special training programmes were formulated to meet the specific needs of the sports events, where children were pitted against other children with similar average performances, which are arrived at after calculating already set records of speed and distance of each child. This provision, according to Jagdish Rana, one of five coaches who trained them, enabled the athletes to participate at their “best levels”.Tough Odds: The training certainly paid off, as the medals won by the young athletes show. But each child has had tremendous odds to overcome: Rodrigues, an orphan, had to be shifted to the S.P.J. Sadhana School, a special institution, as according to Sr Rosie Brigette of the St Anthony’s Home, her concentration and memory “did not develop in the normal process”. However, according to her new Principal Rukmini Krishnaswamy, “she has potential”.advertisementFor Khadye, an eye defect adds to his difficulties. But, as his proud Principal Sr Josephine Terrezi says: “Despite the handicap, Pramod is very neat with his footwork.” Their enthusiasm for sport and their distinction in it has added to their confidence. Says Sr Maria Dolores, principal of the Dilkush School where Sutare studies: “Ever since Kennedy has taken interest in sports, he is much better at his academic work.”With their victory in the prestigious international sports meet, these young athletes have clearly proved that a handicap cannot come in the way of determined effort.
