By Alex ShawEvery team in the world wants their very own David Pocock.A dominant operator at the breakdown who can turn momentum by forcing turnovers at pivotal moments in games. A player who has that instinct to know when and where to swoop and then has all the technical understanding and physical attributes required to latch onto that ball and not let go.This is not the only requirement of the modern openside flanker, however.Eddie Jones has been vocal since being hired as England coach as to what he is looking for in his long-term No 7 and it does jar with the schema that some people have in regards to the roles of the different back row positions. In addition to those pilfering skills, Jones’ No 7 needs to be just as adept clearing out rucks, particularly on first phase, and securing quick ball for the scrum-half to work with.Man with a plan: Eddie Jones knows what he wants from his backrow optionsJones’ reluctance to pick one of the championed sevens in the Aviva Premiership – notably Matt Kvesic and Will Fraser – has frustrated many fans but should not come as a surprise given the Australian’s comments over the last few months.The former Japan boss certainly seems far from enamoured with the English sevens currently at his disposal, with Kvesic only making the Six Nations squad due to Dave Ewers’ injury and Jack Clifford included as a short-term fix (at No 7), and a player that Jones has said he sees as a blindside or No 8 in the future. He has already spoken candidly about potentially having to look to the age-grades to find the solution, something which will have certainly perked the ears of Welsh-based Sam Underhill and Northampton’s Lewis Ludlam.With no seven to Jones’ liking currently available or ready in the English game, his decision to pick back rowers who are capable of dominating attacking breakdowns is one which should be applauded, not derided. Chris Robshaw and James Haskell did an excellent job of nullifying the predatory snaffling of Scotland’s John Barclay and John Hardie at Murrayfield, with Haskell in particular warranting plenty of post-match praise.Veni, vidi, vici: James Haskell and Chris Robshaw thank England fans in RomeVern Cotter’s plan of picking two more traditional opensides paid little dividends in the opening round, as, arguably, neither did Warren Gatland’s same ploy against Ireland. Wales suffered from a lack of quick ball at their rucks and the omission of Dan Lydiate was certainly keenly felt in Dublin, as was the lack of a Rob Harley-like figure for Scotland. Wales faced a similar problem this past weekend when they welcomed Scotland to Cardiff. One question worth asking is that if Kvesic or Fraser had been in Haskell’s position in the build-up to the Kruis try, would they have been able to so effectively dispense with Denton at the contact area? It’s impossible to answer with complete conviction and although both players are certainly able in that area at the Premiership level, test level is a significant step up and whether they have that same power Haskell demonstrated is debatable.Breakdown specialist: Matt Kvesic has, so far, been overlooked by England for the openside roleThe best opensides in the world have that ability to affect the contact area as a defensive and attacking player and there is certainly merit in Jones’ assertion that he doesn’t currently see that in English sevens. Until he is confident that there is a player who has the potential to be that force, picking flankers to negate and nullify the opposition’s breakdown strengths, as well as improve ball security, is one of the cannier moves from England’s new head coach. Whilst these defensive pillagers are certainly in vogue right now thanks to the success of the Pococks and Richie McCaws of the world, if a team is capable of efficiently recycling ball and stringing together phases in attack, then they are capable of winning games. At no point was this more evident than in the build-up to George Kruis’ try against Scotland.Off of a strong English scrum, Billy Vunipola carried powerfully into the Scottish line, where Dave Denton was poised perfectly to steal the ball. The Scottish back rower had his feet wide, creating a strong base, and was positioned directly over the ball with his hands ready to grab on. Per Jones’ remit however, Haskell was rapidly out from the scrum, got his body position low and cleared out Denton in uncompromising fashion. This gave Kruis the quick ball he needed to make it over the try line in the next phase.Teething troubles: the Sam Warburton-Justin Tipuric combination has lacked balance. Credit Huw EvansThe pairing of Robshaw and Haskell was retained by Jones to take on Italy and though not quite as effective, they did stymie the Azzurri’s attempts to steal English ball. The introductions of Maro Itoje and Clifford to the back row in the second half proved instrumental in England moving through the gears and ultimately cantering to a 40-9 victory. Like the men they replaced, neither Itoje nor Clifford is that predatory force at defensive breakdowns, but both bring aggressive, crisp clear-outs on attacking ball and that was a driving force behind England expanding the margin of victory.England have, more or less, been without a ‘true fetcher’ since the days of Neil Back, yet have still been able to win games. For England at this moment, finding that elusive No 7 would be a luxury, but ensuring their Rugby World Cup travails at securing their own ball are firmly in the past is a necessity. The retention of Robshaw and Haskell in the back row certainly suggests that Jones was happy with what he saw in terms of clearing against Scotland, and that he will look to consolidate that before attempting develop the turnover-creating potential of the side.Operator: Maro Itoje brings power at the cleanout from the benchEngland cannot begin to run at the breakdown before they have learnt to walk.The frustration of not seeing Kvesic or Fraser in an England shirt is understandable, but Jones is no fool. If this lights a fire underneath both players and encourages them to take their games to an even higher level, then it’s a smart move from the Australian, who has clearly not seen what he is looking for yet in either player. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Backrow balance: Messrs Robshaw, Haskell and Vunipola didn’t do too badly in Murrayfield There is more to the openside’s role than just snaffling turnovers and Eddie Jones’ short-term selection has sound reasoning behind it

The press freedom organization also shares the deep concern of Ali Abdulemam’s family and seeks clarification about his fate.On 30 April, Bahrain’s judicial authorities ordered a new trial before a civilian court, which opened on 8 May in the Court of Appeal. For the first time, the accused were able to speak about the torture they had suffered. The last session was on 19 June and the next is scheduled for 26 June.Three of the activists, Al-Singace, Abdulhadi Alkhawaja and Hasan Mushaima, decided after testifying that they would not to appear at any further sessions. They did not believe in the impartiality of the system and demanded that they be released immediately, saying they had been targeted because of their activism. The three provided the court with the names of agents they said had tortured them after they were arrested.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice M Nagaprasanna directed the governments to respond to the the petition filed by Radhakrishna Nayak J S and others, by July 29. The plea seeks for direction to allow the ingress and egress of the residents of the villages Saya, Chavarkadu and Bagilapadavu of Enmakaje Gram Panchayat to reach Perla town, Manjeshwar taluk, Kasargod District, Kerala State and Bantwal taluk through Saradaka police check post (Adyanadaka village ) Bantwal taluk, is in Dakshina Kannada district. The petitioners and several other residents of the above villages have to regularly visit the border taluks of Karnataka namely Sulya, Bantwal, Balthangdi, Puttur. Many of the children of these villagers are studying in the neighbouring Taluk, as higher education is available at the nearest border taluk and it is easily accessible for the residents. Further, it is said though the Perla town is in Kerala State, the residents of these three villages have to reach Perla town only after crossing 1 km road which is part of the State of Karnataka. The State of Karnataka has blocked the Saradkam Check post which will be the access point for the Kerala state. By blocking the said road the respondent has completely blocked the access to the petitioners and other villagers to their own town which is located in the same state. The Gram Panchayat Enmakaje passed a resolution dated June 10, to request the deputy commissioner, Dakshina Kannada to permit ingress and egress to the villagers of the above villages. The president of Gram Panchayat has also made several requests to the Deputy Commissioner, Dakshina Kannada requesting permission to travel through this road to reach Perla or Bantwala. Moreover, the government of Karnataka has allowed inter state transportation after the lockdown is removed. The persons who are travelling from Mangalore to Kasargod are permitted to travel. However even after the lockdown is open the Saradkam Check post is not opened for the public to reach either Perla or Bantwala. Due to the said action of the respondent, the petitioners and other villagers of the Manjeshwar taluk are prevented from free movement for their daily needs, education, medical facilities etc. The plea prays for directions to the respondent 2 (Home Department, Karnataka) to allow access to the road connecting from Perla Town to Saya village on Charkala-Kalladka State highway through Saradkam check post.Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition] Next Story

Andy Cross/MediaNewsGroup/The Denver Post via Getty ImagesBY: CONOR FINNEGAN, ABC NEWS(DENVER) — As the world sees unprecedented protests calling for an end to police brutality and systemic racism in the name of George Floyd, a Black man who died while in police custody, the death of another Black man who was being detained by police has received renewed attention.Elijah McClain, 23, died after he was apprehended by Aurora, Colorado, police in August 2019.McClain’s name has circulated throughout social media since Floyd’s death, with some highlighting his case as yet another unarmed Black man to die and others demanding some form of justice. One petition, calling for the officers involved to be taken off duty and a more “in-depth” investigation be conducted, has garnered more than 2.2 million signatures. That petition continued to grow as of Wednesday afternoon.The story of McClain’s death is “one of the many, many examples … of an innocent young person who was absolutely minding his own business and was doing nothing wrong and was murdered by law enforcement,” McClain family attorney, Mari Newman, told ABC News.McClain was walking home after buying iced tea at a corner store on August 24, 2019, when he was stopped by police, Newman said.He was wearing a ski mask on a warm night — which Newman attributed to him getting cold — when a person called 911 at 10:30 p.m. to report him for being “sketchy,” according to an audio recording of the 911 call released by the Aurora Police Department.The caller told a 911 operator that a man, later identified as McClain, “has a mask on” and “he might be a good person or a bad person.”The caller said that no weapons were involved and when asked if he or anyone else was in danger, the caller can be heard responding, “no.”Police responded to the scene. Body camera footage showed McClain walking on the sidewalk with three officers approaching him. One tells him to stop multiple times, but McClain continued to walk.According to the body camera footage, that officer then puts his hands on McClain, saying “stop tensing up,” while McClain replies, “let go of me.” The two other officers then appear to put their hands on him at this point too, the video shows.McClain tells the officers he was “going home.”“You guys started to arrest me and I was stopping my music to listen,” McClain said, according to the body camera video. One officer says he wants to move McClain over to a grassy area, which is when McClain appeared to struggle with the officers.During the struggle, one officer shouts that McClain had tried to reach for another officer’s gun, according to the body camera footage.The officer whose gun McClain allegedly reached for later can be heard in the body camera footage that he did not remember feeling McClain go for his gun.The officers bring him to the ground and place him in a carotid control hold — which involves an officer placing his arm around a person’s neck, restricting the flow of blood to the brain from the carotid arteries, according to a letter from Dave Young, the district attorney for Adams and Broomfield Counties, to then-Police Chief Nicholas Metz.“I was just going home,” McClain cried out while on the ground, with an officer pinning him down. “I don’t do that stuff. I don’t do any fighting.”McClain, who was placed in handcuffs, is seen at one point throwing up after the struggle with officers while he is on the ground.Paramedics with the Aurora Fire Department were called to the scene, which is department policy after the application of a carotid control hold. According to Young’s letter, paramedics said that McClain remained combative and possibly suffered from a condition called excited delirium. McClain was later administered, by paramedics, what Newman alleged was an “excessive dose” of ketamine, which is used by medical practitioners and veterinarians as an anesthetic.Part of the fire department’s protocol is to administer ketamine, with the goal of “rapid tranquilization in order to minimize time struggling,” according to the DA’s letter.The Adams County coroner said in McClain’s autopsy report that there was a “therapeutic level” of ketamine in his system.“Even though he was totally restrained on the ground, the Aurora paramedics injected him with a dosage of ketamine,” Newman said. “It was certainly not appropriate because he wasn’t acting in any out-of-control way” when the ketamine was administered.After McClain was put in an ambulance, he suffered from cardiac arrest, according to police. Though police said McClain regained consciousness and was being treated at a local hospital, he died several days later.Young, the district attorney, declined to bring charges against the officers involved. Young wrote in a letter to Metz, which was obtained by ABC News, that McClain was “violently struggling” with the officers and there is “no evidence to dispute the perception of the officers in the need to escalate the use of force.”The Adams County coroner ruled back in November 2019 that McClain’s cause of death was “undetermined.”Possible contributing factors were listed as “intense physical exertion and a narrow left coronary artery,” according to the autopsy, which was obtained by ABC News. Newman said McClain did not have any underlying medical conditions.When reached for comment, police directed ABC News to previous statements they had made regarding McClain’s death.“We fully understand the need for transparency throughout this entire investigation and we can appreciate the seriousness of this matter. … We continue to offer our deepest condolences to the McClain family and friends during this very difficult time,” Aurora police said in a statement two days after the incident.Newman, though, viewed it drastically differently.“It was straight up torture really. … The police failed him on every level, I mean that doesn’t even begin to capture it,” she said.Newman said McClain’s family has mixed feelings about seeing their son’s case gain more attention.“They were very distraught and disappointed at how little attention his murder got at the time that it happened, so I think they’re glad to see that people are now paying attention,” she said. “I think it’s also very hard … to suddenly be thrusted to the limelight and having to talk about the very worst thing that’s ever happened to them.”Newman said she thinks the public is now facing a reckoning of how it views police.“A lot of the time people like to reassure themselves that the only people who get killed by law enforcement are people who were doing something wrong … He wasn’t doing anything wrong,” Newman said.Colorado Gov. Jared Polis responded to the newfound attention on the case in a tweet on Wednesday.“Public confidence in our law enforcement process is incredibly important now more than ever. A fair and objective process free from real or perceived bias for investigating officer-involved killings is critical,” Polis wrote. “I am hearing from many Coloradans who have expressed concerns with the investigation of Elijah McClain’s death. As a result, I have instructed my legal council to examine what the state can do and we are assessing next steps.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
