Actor Alec Baldwin turned his phone over to police in Suffolk County, New York, on Friday morning, his attorney said, beginning a process that will allow investigators to collect data related to his shooting death of a cinematographer on the set of the movie “Rust” last year in New Mexico.

Mr. Baldwin agreed to a process in which he would hand over his iPhone and password, and the phone’s data would be reviewed by officials from the Suffolk County Police Department and the District Attorney’s Office before the relevant data was released. be turned over to New Mexico authorities, according to a tracing agreement provided by Mr. Baldwin’s attorney. Mr Baldwin, who has a home in Suffolk County, turned the phone over to police himself, his lawyer, Aaron Dyer, said.

Juan Rios, spokesman for the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, said his office was notified that the phone had been turned over to authorities in Suffolk County, NY.

Under the terms of the search agreement, Suffolk County officials will review communications from the phone – including text messages, emails, call recordings, voicemails, digital images and phone history. internet browser – between June 1 and December 5 of last year, and exclude any communication with his lawyers or his wife, Hilaria, who are protected by the privilege.

“Mr. Baldwin is entitled to confidentiality with respect to the contents of the iPhone, as well as with respect to communications with his attorneys and with his wife, which communications are protected by attorney-client privilege and spousal communications,” the agreement reads.

Suffolk County Police must create a “forensic download” of the iPhone “in its entirety”, according to the agreement, before the device is returned to Mr Baldwin.

The fatal shooting happened on October 21, when Mr Baldwin practiced firing an old-fashioned revolver from a shoulder holster. She had been told the gun did not contain live ammunition, but it did, and it fired a bullet that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured the film’s director, Joel Souza. Investigators investigating the shooting and seeking to determine how live ammunition entered the firearm, obtained a search warrant for Mr Baldwin’s phone on December 16.

The agreement to hand over Mr. Baldwin’s phone states that the search warrant is not enforceable in New York – where he lives – and that without Mr. Baldwin’s consent to search the phone, authorities would be required to seek a separate mandate in the state. . To avoid this, the agreement says, Mr Baldwin agreed to proceed “as if the NM warrant had been obtained in New York”.

“Alec voluntarily provided his phone to authorities this morning so they could complete their investigation,” Dyer said in a statement. “But this case is not about his phone, and there is no answer on his phone. Alec didn’t do anything wrong.

While generally limiting their search to communications between June 1 and December 5, officers will be able to access communications with Matthew Hutchins, Ms. Hutchins’ widower, and Santa Fe law enforcement officials from n’ any date, depending on the research agreement. He said Mr Baldwin had agreed to provide a list of phone numbers for “individuals and entities connected with the production of the film”. Managers “may only extract call records for calls to or from these numbers during the relevant time period,” according to the agreement.

After media reported last week that authorities in Santa Fe did not have Mr. Baldwin’s phone three weeks after the warrant was issued, Mr. Baldwin posted a video to his Instagram account saying that any suggestions according to which he was not cooperating with investigators was “a lie.” He said the process would take time and that authorities “have to clarify what exactly they want”.

“They can’t just go through your phone and take, you know, your pictures or your love letters to your wife or whatever,” Mr. Baldwin said in the video.

In a TV interview last month, Mr Baldwin denied responsibility for Ms Hutchins’ death, saying he did not know how the live ammunition got to the set and did not press the trigger before the weapon fires.

Before handing the gun to Mr. Baldwin on set, the film’s first assistant director, Dave Halls, called it a “cold gun”, an industry term meaning a gun has no live ammunition and can be used safely. Mr Baldwin said in the interview that Ms Hutchins told him where to point the gun when it discharged.

“It is clear that he was told it was a cold gun and was following instructions when this tragic accident occurred,” Mr Dyer said in the statement. “The real question that needs to be answered is how the live rounds got to the set in the first place.”

Friend raises money to help after mother and son are both stabbed https://robins-island.org/friend-raises-money-to-help-after-mother-and-son-are-both-stabbed/ Wed, 12 Jan 2022 17:05:09 +0000 https://robins-island.org/friend-raises-money-to-help-after-mother-and-son-are-both-stabbed/ DEER PARK, NY – A man in Deer Park raised $ 32,410 to support his childhood best friend, whose mother was fatally stabbed in her home last month, police say.

DEER PARK, NY – A man in Deer Park raised $ 32,410 to support his childhood best friend, whose mother was fatally stabbed in her home last month, police say.

Michael Bodt, who created a GoFundMe page titled, “Help Joe with Hospital and Funeral Expenses,” told Patch he has known his friend and neighbor Joe Mille, 47, for 44 years. Longtime friends live only two doors apart as they grow up.

Bodt was the one Mille turned to for help, after he and his mother were stabbed in a gruesome incident on Christmas Eve.

According to Suffolk County Police, on the afternoon of December 23, Shaquela Titley, 30, stabbed Marie Mille, 85, the mother of her ex-boyfriend, and then her son, Joseph Mille, at her back to their Deer Park home. Mille got out of the house and called 911 from a neighbor’s house around 12:20 p.m., police said.

Marie Mille was pronounced dead at home by a medical assistant from the Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s Office. Mille was taken to a local hospital where he had to undergo surgery for “serious but not life threatening injuries,” police said.

Bodt said he was the neighbor Mille called when he found his mother’s body – and later came to his parents, where Bodt was that day, for help.

“He ran towards me covered in blood,” Bodt said. “He was knocking on my door and I knew straight away.
Bodt said he believed his friend had numerous knife wounds, but police have not confirmed the exact number.

Bodt called 911 and said the police came quickly.

Titley, of Deer Park, was arrested in Patchogue 5th Ward and charged with second degree murder, police said.

“It’s just awful,” Bodt said. “It sounds like a dream or a nightmare, but we actually lived it.”

Many people offered to send food to Mille, Bodt said. But he knew Mille would have a long way to go to recover and wouldn’t know when he would be discharged from the hospital.

“Instead of people just sending them stuff that would be thrown away or wasted, I thought, let me start the GoFundMe,” Bodt said. “That way when he goes out he has the money to pay for the funeral and whatever they need.”

In two days, Bodt raised over $ 26,000 for the Mille family. He told Patch that while he was grateful for the huge response, he wasn’t surprised at the number of people who had donated to the Mille family. Mille, he said, is a “caring” person who often reaches out to others and lends a hand.

“Deer Park is always generous, from people we graduated from high school with to people who don’t even know us,” Bodt said.

Mary will be remembered as the “matriarch” and “pillar” of the family, who “lived her life with undying love and kindness,” Bodt wrote on GoFundMe. She was very active in the community, he said, and often attended church.

“He’s the kind of person where you think, ‘This can’t happen to him,’” Bodt said. “It just isn’t fair. It just isn’t fair.”

Mille was released from the hospital on December 28 and his health is improving, Bodt said.
Bodt told Patch that he cleaned and prepared Mille’s house while he was hospitalized, in preparation for his return.

“It will be a long road mentally and physically,” said Bodt.

Death threats are real to senior officials of color.

Inauguration Day, January 2009. President Barack Obama is sworn in as the first black president of the United States. 1.8 million people blocked the square to witness the monumental moment. Even the freezing 28 degrees did not dampen the excitement of the participants. Their pride and hope were fully displayed. Live TV audiences watched the new President and his wife, Michelle Obama, ride in the inaugural procession on Pennsylvania Avenue. Towards the end of the mile-long stretch, the two got out of the car for a short ride, following a tradition started in 1977 by President Jimmy Carter.

I watched as they confidently walked down the street toward the White House, waving to the enthusiastic crowd – and tried to fend off a wave of fear I knew was shared by several million African Americans. . He was in the open, a ready target for someone who might try to kill him. I later learned that there were many who were literally screaming on TV, “Get in the car!” Get back in the car!

Recently, cellphone videos of brutally beaten or killed African Americans revealed to the rest of America what black people already know: Too many of us have witnessed or been victims of racial violence. In fact, some African Americans have said they will not vote for him because they feared then Senator Obama would be a bigger target if he won the presidency. If they could kill Martin Luther King and get away with it, some wondered aloud, why would Obama be any different? The FBI has documented a record number of threats against Obama and his family, more than any other president.

I thought about all of this when Rachael Rollins, newly confirmed by the Senate as US attorney for Massachusetts, requested federal security and was turned down. The former Suffolk County District Attorney, who was due to be sworn in today, barely survived a bruising confirmation process in which his professional reputation and character came under attack. The ongoing threats she frequently received at the district attorney’s office became more violent. Death threats like the email that said, “Someone out there is plotting to put one in your face or in your head!” Rollins delivered the emails to the US Marshals Service. According to the Boston Globe, the Marshals investigated and deemed the threats “low risk”.

Rollins, who will be Massachusetts’ first black American prosecutor, highlighted on GBH Greater Boston “A lot of people don’t realize as a woman… especially a woman of color, a black woman, the level of racist and hateful death threats we receive.” The US Marshals do not offer protection to federal officials unless they assess the threat as serious. However, former President Donald Trump’s Education Secretary Betsy DeVos – who is white – received protection after being taunted during a college visit.

The facts are that on the day of the inauguration, Obama’s security services were on high alert over a credible death threat. And the facts are, Rachael Rollins is not exaggerating the credible threats against her. As is so often the case when the issue is race related, the lived experience brings a unique perspective that is not always valued. Call it some kind of bitter irony. Rollins begins his new job today, tasked with protecting the citizens of Massachusetts by prosecuting violations of federal laws, including terrorism and civil rights violations – even though his own request for protection has yet to been satisfied.

A new £ 1million beach hut village to be built on Felixstowe seafront will not open until the summer following the delay in construction.

East Suffolk Council’s plans for 27 traditional huts and play and exercise facilities, to be built adjacent to the promenade on the southern seafront, were given the green light last October.

The local authority had hoped to start construction within the next few weeks so that the huts could be ready and opened in time for the peak summer season.

But, with other permissions required before it can continue, the project has been postponed – meaning construction is now expected to begin in September.

The decision came after discussions with businesses, residents and other stakeholders about the likely disruption construction will cause and the impact on this year’s summer season.

Craig Rivett, Deputy Head of East Suffolk Council and Cabinet Member for Economic Development, said: ‘Tourism is extremely important to East Suffolk and when completed this new seaside village will attract visitors from all over the world. country, increasing downtown traffic, strengthening the local economy and improving the lives of local residents.

“However, we have to get the timing right and there would be no advantage in starting a program that is ready off season.

“The southern seafront has undergone significant redevelopment in recent years and East Suffolk Council has made significant investments in revitalizing the area.

“We believe it is vital to continue to build on this investment and create developments that benefit local businesses and individuals as well as visitors to the region.

The midnight rally on Main Street that was scheduled for Friday New Years Eve in Patchogue has been called off, organizers said on Tuesday.

“Obviously, this move is due to the continued increase in COVID and the Omicron variant,” said David Kennedy, executive director of the Greater Patchogue Chamber of Commerce, organizers of the event.

“Specifically, we recognize that in order to host an event of this size under the current circumstances, we will need to ensure that all attendees were masked and vaccinated, which our chamber would struggle to do. Additionally, many local agencies that we depend on to help us have communicated that they have severe staffing shortages due to COVID that would leave our event without the staff we would need to keep the event safe. “

This LED-lit Christmas ball will therefore remain in storage for another year.

“We apologize to anyone who is disappointed with our decision,” Kennedy added. “I can attest that the Village of Patchogue, Suffolk Police, Patchogue Fire Department, Patchogue Ambulance Company, Village Public Safety, Village Public Works Department and Blue Point Brewery have all done their best. their best to try to make this happen. The Chamber is sincerely grateful for their help despite the obstacles… ”

He also promised that the event would return to Main Street next year.
