Hurricane Douglas Update 2020

Hurricane Douglas becomes first of season in Eastern Pacific, Hawaii may face impacts by weekend

Hurricane Douglas continues to strengthen in the East Pacific and could become a major Category 3 hurricane by Thursday, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said.

Hurricane Douglas has maximum sustained winds of 75 mph

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles from the center, while tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect, but the forecast cone from the hurricane center shows the storm could approach the Hawaiian islands by the second half of this weekend.

“Additional strengthening is forecast during the next day or two, and Douglas could become a major hurricane on Thursday,” forecasters said in their 11 a.m. update. The current forecast has the storm reaching its peak wind strength of 115 mph on Thursday.

As of late this morning, hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 10 miles from the center, and tropical storm-force winds extend up to 105 miles, they said.

“Douglas could maintain hurricane intensity as it approaches the Hawaiian Islands, and all interests on the islands should monitor the forecasts as they evolve over the next few days,” the hurricane center said.

The storm is projected to have maximum sustained winds of 75 mph as it nears the Big Island Sunday, and 65 mph on Monday as it moves west.

The National Weather Service in Honolulu said this morning that the forecast for this weekend will highly depend on the development of Douglas, but that there are increasing chances of heavy rain and strong winds could affect portions of the state beginning Sunday. Forecasters stressed that it is still too early to tell which islands will be affected by the approachin

Whos been sleeping in my bed ? Burglars take a nap in victims bed

SALT LAKE CITY — Police have arrested two men who they say committed a long burglary in Brigham City, even taking the time to take a nap in the owner’s bed before stealing more items.

Eric Lee Dawson, 24, and Chandler Luke White, 24, of Ogden, were each arrested Sunday for investigation of two counts of burglary, three counts of vehicle burglary, three counts of criminal mischief, theft of a firearm, and three counts of theft.

Brigham City police were called Sunday to a report of a burglary at a property that included both a commercial business and the home of the business owner.

The air conditioning unit of one of the property owner’s trailers was removed by the two men, allowing them to get inside, according to a police booking affidavit.

“The suspects rummaged through the house and got into his office and file cabinet. Then they took numerous titles to different vehicles he owned,” the affidavit states.

The two then broke into a camper trailer next to the home and not only “rummaged” through it, but also “appeared to have slept in it,” according to the affidavit.

The men then broke into the property owner’s shop by prying open a commercial metal door, police say.

“Inside the shop they took numerous hand tools, power tools and four 5-gallon metal gas cans, which had been full of fuel,” the affidavit states. Harley Davidson motorcycle parts and parts to a toy train set were also taken.

“They also took 10 firearms from inside the master bedroom, several handguns, rifles and shotguns, which had been on the ground between the bed and closet,” police wrote.

Is it illegal to record a conversation in Wyoming?

Wyoming recording law stipulates that it is a one-party consent state. In Wyoming, it is a criminal offense to use any device to record or share use communications, whether they are wire, oral or electronic, without the consent of at least one person taking part in the communication.

§ 7-3-702: It is legal for a party to a wire, oral or electronic communication to record that communication, and it is legal for anyone to record with the consent of one of the parties to a communication, unless the communication is intercepted to further a criminal or tortious purpose.

SLC police release additional body-cam footage of Bernardo Palacios-Carbajal shooting

— Salt Lake City Police Department released additional body-cam footage from an officer that was on the scene of the May 23 fatal shooting of Bernardo Palacios-Carbajal.


Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill ruled earlier Thursday the shooting by police was justified, and the involved officers will not face charges.

The 3:23 video shows body-cam footage from Officer Kilgore, who did not fire his weapon, a tweet from SLCPD at 8:30 p.m. said. At the 1:07 mark, the officer appears to begin to run, and the footage is blurred and jumpy. The officer stops running just after the 2:00 mark. The officer’s weapon can then be seen, but as noted by SLCPD, he did not fire the weapon. He then walks toward other officers, who are holding their weapons. Palacios-Carbajal can be seen on the ground at the end of the video.

At the press conference earlier Thursday, Gill quoted interviews in which the Salt Lake City Police officers involved said they feared for their lives after a prone Palacios-Carbajal appeared to raise a gun he had dropped three times as he fell on slick surfaces on the rainy night.

Gill noted that as the officer was gaining on him, Palacios-Carbajal slowed down three times to retrieve the fallen gun, showing possession of the deadly weapon was more important to him than escape.

Gill showed blurry video that appeared to show Palacios-Carbajal raising the hand holding the gun to the side of his waist, off the ground, which meant he elevated the gun.

Gill said Officer Iverson was chasing Palacios-Carbajal, and gaining ground when the officer heard a metallic clink as the suspect fell and dropped an object. Gill said the officers visually confirmed the object was a gun before shooting.

Recording the Police

The Laws of Recording Police  

 

The law in 38 states plainly allows citizens to record police, as long as you don’t physically interfere with their work. Police might still unfairly harass you, detain you, or confiscate your camera. They might even arrest you for some catchall misdemeanor such as obstruction of justice or disorderly conduct

Recording Officers and the First Amendment

Almost every court to consider the issue has determined that the First Amendment gives you the right to record (pictures, video, and audio) police officers in public while they are performing their duties. But that doesn’t mean you’re allowed to record if you’re doing so surreptitiously (secretly), interfering with the officer, or otherwise breaking the law.

The courts’ primary rationale for allowing police officer recording is that the First Amendment includes the right to freely discuss our government, and the right of freedom of the press and public access to information. Given the prevalence of personal filming devices, more and more “news” is being gathered and disseminated by members of the public. The courts have found that freedom of the press applies to citizen journalists and documentarians just as it does to formal members of the press. (See, for example, Glik v. Cunniffe, 655 F.3d 78 (1st Cir. 2011).)
