Is The Country Of Argentina Prohibiting Justin Bieber From Entering?

It seems like Justin just can’t get away from his bad boy persona, or at least the remnants of it. In 2013, the Biebs and his entourage stormed through Latin America causing havoc wherever they stayed. Amongst the then charges of theft (of cell phones), fraud, and vandalism (mopping with Argentinian flags), Justin and his bodyguards reportedly assaulted multiple people for unknown reasons.

One of those victims was a photographer who claims the singer’s bodyguard assaulted him. Bieber's team thought the case was closed and fixed, however an Argentinian judge begs to differ. Reports state that the judge wants Bieber arrested if he steps foot into the country.

It look like the 21-year-old may just have to wait a little while longer for his bad boy image to be completely expunged.-- Cook T.P.

Ava DuVernay And 'Netflix' Sued For Portrayal Of Interrogation Technique In 'When They See Us'

Ava DuVernay and Netflix have been sued over their portrayal of the Reid interrogation technique of the Central Park Five in the Emmy-award winning series When They See Us, according to a new report by Hollywood Reporter.

According to the report, John E. Reid and Associates, a company that trains police on how to interrogate, claims that When They See Us sheds a negative light on the procedure, and implies that it involves coercion.

“Defendants intended to incite an audience reaction against Reid for what occurred in the Central Park jogger case and for the coercive interrogation tactics that continue to be used today,” the suit reads. “Defendants published the statements in 'When They See Us' in an effort to cause a condemnation of the Reid technique.”

The lawsuit also refers to a specific scene where the alleged Reid technique was badly dramatized.  In the final episode of When They See Us, a district attorney's office employee confronts a detective in the case, saying: "You squeezed statements out of them after 42 hours of questioning and coercing, without food, bathroom breaks, withholding parental supervision. The Reid Technique has been universally rejected. That's truth to you."

The detective responds:

“I don’t even know what the fucking Reid technique is, OK? I know what I was taught. I know what I was asked to do and I did it.”

Reid and Associates also claims the program has caused harm to the company's reputation, and the firm is seeking actual and punitive damages.

When They See Us, directed by DuVernay, tells the story of the Central Park Five, a group of young black men who were falsely charged with the rape and assault of a jogger in 1989.

Officer Who Fatally Shot Atatiana Jefferson Arrested, Faces Murder Charge

After resigning on Monday (Oct. 14), former Dallas police officer Aaron Dean was arrested and charged for the murder of Atatiana Jefferson, ABC News reports. The 28-year-old was shot by Dean after her neighbor called for a welfare check when he noticed her house door was open. The incident occurred early Saturday (Oct. 12).

In addition to announcing Dean's arrest, Fort Worth Police Chief Ed Kraus said he's confused as to why Jefferson was killed and "on behalf of the men and women of the Fort Worth Police Department, I'm so sorry for what occurred."

Jefferson's family also issued a statement following Dean's arrest, noting "We need to see this through to a vigorous prosecution & appropriate sentencing. The City of Fort Worth has much work to do to reform a brutal culture of policing."

The family's lawyer, Lee Meritt, said a series of actions should've taken place before Dean had the chance to resign. Jefferson was a pre-med graduate of Xavier University before she left Lousiana for Texas to support her family.

"The opportunity to resign is a slap in this family's face and it's a slap in the community's face," Merritt said. "He should have never been given that option. And I want us to stop treating this...like it's a bad apple case. The saying is 'a bad apple spoils the bunch.' But the barrel is rotten from the core."

An internal and criminal investigation of Dean's actions is underway, Chief Kraus notes.

Haitians Protest For President Jovenel Moise's Resignation

The people of Haiti have taken action to encourage the resignation of President Jovenel Moise. According to The Washington Post, the demonstrations have been gaining steam over the course of six weeks. Since 2017, Moise has been in power with a length of three more years left on his presidency.

Reasons for the protest—which stretches from the country's capital Port-au-Prince to surrounding towns—includes inflation, and other environmental concerns like inadequate drinking water, and a food and fuel shortage. The protestors also call into question the monetary aid the country received after the 2010 earthquake that has yet to reinstall infrastructure to the most affected places.

In a statement issued to the Post, Jake Johnston, an international research associate who focuses on Haiti's economic and policy sectors said "Haiti is facing a broad rejection of a political and economic system that in 30 years has failed to deliver results for the majority of the population. There's a general distrust of politicians and elections. And the promises of economic development after the earthquake have clearly not been met."

Moise's plans to launch a "dialogue committee" to attempt a resolution but has been met with opposition from those on the front lines of the protest.

In addition to the protests, the United Nations ceased its 15-year peacekeeping mission in the country, The Miami Herald reports. The organization arrived in 2004 to help restore order after Haiti fell into political corruption and violence following President Jean-Bertrand Aristide's exile. The news site adds that some U.N. personnel were also accused of sexual abuse crimes against boys and women and that the organization admitted to its role in 2010's cholera outbreak.
