Execution-style murder of 6-year-old Michigan boy, two others, was about ‘drugs and money,’ police say

WARREN, MI – A 37-year-old Michigan man has been charged with the murder of a 6-year-old boy, the boy’s father, and the boy’s father’s girlfriend.

Nicholas Raad Bahri of Bloomfield Hills is accused of the “execution-style killing” of 6-year-old Tai’raz Moore and 28-year-old Isis Rimson at a home on Otis Street in Warren on Oct. 1.

Detroit police also found the body of 32-year-old Tukoyo Moore, Tai’raz’s father, in a torched car around the same time. Bahri is also charged with his murder.

When asked about motive for the murders on Tuesday, Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer simply said “It was all about drugs and money. I’ll leave it at that” but noted that the suspect and victims did know each other.

Macomb County Judge john M. Chmura found probable cause for all 15 counts against Bahri, who has an extensive criminal history, in 37th District Court in Warren on

Black man who was led by mounted police using a rope sues over ‘slave’-style arrest

The Black man’s hands were cuffed behind his back as two white police officers on horseback steered him through the streets of Galveston, Texas. The mounted officers used a long blue rope to guide the man several blocks under the glare of the summer sun.

Footage of Donald Neely’s August 2019 arrest triggered a national outcry, with the scene drawing comparisons to the inhumane treatment of enslaved people in the 1800s.

According to Neely’s lawsuit, the way he was arrested made him feel “as though he was a slave.” The lawsuit, filed against the city and its police force last week, alleges that Neely’s arrest on suspicion of criminal trespassing was “extreme and outrageous.”

The police chief apologized, and the charges have been dropped, according to Neely’s attorney, Julie Ketterman. But Neely is now seeking up to $1 million in damages for emotional distress, malicious prosecution, and negligence after suffering

Galveston police sued by Donald Neely, Black man who was led by rope by officers on horses

According to his new lawsuit, Neely said the way he was arrested made him feel “as though he was a slave.” The lawsuit, filed against the city and its police force last week, alleges that Neely’s arrest on suspicion of criminal trespassing was “extreme and outrageous.”

The police chief apologized, and the charges have been dropped, according to Neely’s attorney, Julie Ketterman. But Neely is now seeking up to $1 million in damages for emotional distress, malicious prosecution, and negligence after suffering both mental and physical anguish by those who had a duty to protect him, the attorney said.

The lawsuit alleges that he suffered physical and emotional pain, including handcuff abrasions, as he was led on foot to a mounted-officer staging area because no vehicles were immediately available to transport him.

The Galveston Police Department said it would not comment on an active lawsuit.

Shampoo police show ugly side of beauty industry

Hair braider Dara Collier knows her craft. She started practicing twists and weaves as a child, until she mastered each look.

Customers near Atlanta appreciate her advanced skills, but Georgia regulators will not let her do something more basic: shampooing.

Washing clients’ hair outside a state-approved salon without cosmetology credentials is illegal in Georgia. As a self-employed braider, Collier does not need an occupational license to run her business in Georgia.

But that also means she cannot legally cleanse hair — something she would like to do as an extra precaution during COVID-19.

Regulators do not care that shampoo is safe, sold over-the-counter and routinely used at home by children. “It does not make a lot of sense,” Collier says.

Other states impose even stricter licensing rules, treating shampoo like a controlled substance.

A 2017 Institute for Justice analysis showed that 37 jurisdictions specifically mandated licensure for shampoo assistants

Police officer dismissed for holding wedding party amid pandemic – Wed, October 7 2020

The North Sumatra Police have dismissed Adj. Comr. Bobi Vaski Pranata from his position as Serdang Bedagai Police’s intelligence unit chief after he held a wedding reception despite the coronavirus pandemic and ignoring health protocols and physical distancing. 

 

Bobi’s dismissal came after a video of his wedding party, held on Sept. 26 in a building in Labuhan Batu regency, North Sumatra, made the rounds on social media. In the video that later went viral, the married couple and the guests were seen without masks and purportedly with no physical distancing. 

 

The North Sumatra Police have confirmed the authenticity of the video, which led to the first dismissal of a police officer in the region for a violation of health protocols.
