(WASHINGTON) JUST IN: White House Statement: Trump supports efforts to improve federal gun background checks #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Feb.19: A White House spokesperson said Monday that Donald Trump would back improving the federal background check system: “The president spoke to Senator [John] Cornyn [R-Texas] on Friday about the bi-partisan bill he and Sen. [Chris] Murphy [D-Conn.] introduced to improve Federal Compliance with Criminal Background check Legislation,” the White House said in a statement #AceNewsDesk reports

“While discussions are ongoing and revisions are being considered, the President is supportive of efforts to improve the Federal background check system.”

The comments come after a gunman opened fire at a Florida high school, killing 17 people and wounding more than a dozen others.

Multiple students and lawmakers have called for Congress to act following the shooting to prevent a future tragedy.

Last year, Trump overturned an Obama-era regulation restricting certain people from buying guns.

Critics said removing the legislation made it easier for people with mental illness to purchase guns, potentially increasing the danger to themselves or others.

During his campaign, Trump cast himself as a pro-gun candidate.

At a National Rifle Association gathering in 2016, he said that the Second Amendment was “on the ballot in November.”

“The only way to save our Second Amendment is to vote for a person that you all know named Donald Trump,” he said: JUST IN: White House: Trump supports efforts to improve federal gun background checks https://t.co/WJrngsDh4Upic.twitter.com/bdFMktqM4 Rebecca Savransky02/19/18 09:01 AM EST The Hill February 19, 2018

(VATICAN CITY, Rome.) Pope Francis revived his lapsed sex abuse advisory commission by naming new members Saturday, after coming under fire for his overall handling of the scandal and his support for a Chilean bishop accused by victims of witnessing and ignoring their abuse as he added nine new & remove the most outspoken #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Feb.18: The announcement of the new members of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors came on the same day that a Vatican investigator will take the testimony in New York of one of the main whistleblowers in the Chilean cover-up scandal: Francis tasked Archbishop Charles Scicluna with the fact-finding mission into Bishop Juan Barros after he came under blistering criticism in Chile for defending Barros and calling the victims’ cover-up accusations against him slander #AceNewsDesk reports

Pope revives lapsed sex abuse commission amid skepticism after the initial three-year mandate of commission members had lapsed two months ago, on Dec. 17. Francis named nine new members Saturday and kept seven from the initial group. A Vatican statement said survivors of abuse are included, but didn’t identify them to protect their privacy: None of the most outspoken lay advocates for victims from the original group returned, but a statement stressed that the commission’s work would be imbued throughout with the experience of victims……..Commission members are to open their April plenary by meeting with victims privately, and discussions are continuing to create an “international survivor advisory panel” to advise the commission and make sure the voices of victims are heard in all its deliberations, the statement said:

The new members are noteworthy for their geographic representation, hailing from Tonga, Brazil, Ethiopia and Australia, among other places.

“The newly appointed members will add to the commission’s global perspective in the protection of minors and vulnerable adults,” said Cardinal Sean O’Malley, the commission’s president……….Francis has insisted he has “zero tolerance” for abuse and had pledged to hold bishops accountable when they botch cases. But there have been several well-known cases where he and the Vatican sided with the accused over victims, calling into question whether he shares the “victims first” policy that guides his own commission’s work……The Barros case is the most prominent example. Victims of Chile’s most notorious predator priest, the Rev. Fernando Karadima, have for years accused Barros of witnessing their abuse, ignoring it and defending Karadima.

En route home from Chile, though, Francis insisted he had no “evidence” against Barros to warrant removing him. The Associated Press, though, reported that he received a letter from a Karadima victim, Juan Carlos Cruz, in April 2015 detailing the abuse he suffered and Barros’ presence while it happened.

Francis’ defiant defense of Barros suggested that he find Cruz or the other victims credible, and believed instead Barros’ ecclesial supporters in Chile and at the Vatican.

Cruz testifies Saturday before Scicluna, who was the architect of the Vatican’s get-tough approach to sex abuse in the early 2000s. Several recent cases, however, indicate that the Vatican under Francis doesn’t favor the “one strike and you’re out” approach adopted by the U.S. bishops, for example, after the scandal exploded there in 2002.

Francis himself has admitted that he opts to give offenders the benefit of the doubt, especially when solid proof — often hard to come by in decades-old sex abuse cases — is lacking.

“As must be done in good jurisprudence, always in favor of the offender,” he told reporters Jan. 21 en route home from South America.

Francis applied that concept in the case of the Rev. Mauro Inzoli, a well-known Italian priest defrocked by the Vatican for having abused children as young as 12. He had his sentence reduced on appeal to a lifetime of penance and prayer in 2014 after what his bishop said was a show of mercy from Francis. But in 2016, an Italian judge convicted Inzoli of abusing five children aged 12-16 and sentenced him to four years, nine months in prison. The Vatican opened a new church trial against him and in 2017 he was definitively defrocked.

Francis has held out the Inzoli case as an exception, where he opted for a lesser sanction.

But Italy’s Il Mattino newspaper has had a series of exposes about another case where the Vatican under Francis opted to take the priest’s word over that of the victim’s.

The victim in that case accused the Rev. Silverio Mura, a parish priest in Ponticelli, of raping him as a 13-year-old. He came forward in 2010 to accuse Mura, after remembering the abuse during the therapy he was undergoing for the panic attacks, depression and other medically certified reactions to his childhood trauma.

But the case, investigated by the archdiocese of Naples, was shelved in 2016 for lack of proof.

The victim had declined to submit to a second diocesan psychiatric evaluation after the first one subjected him to a “savage” police-style interrogation that sought to destroy his fragile defenses, according to a letter to the archdiocese’ psychiatrist from the victim’s personal psychiatrist, Dr. Alfonso Rossi.

Il Mattino this month reported, however, that other victims have since come forward alleging similar rapes.

Vatican spokesman Greg Burke confirmed Saturday that the case was now revived, on the express wishes of Francis. He said it had never been archived, just dormant “awaiting other elements of proof.”

Il Mattino, however, reported Feb. 4 that the priest had been sanctioned based on the evidence already given. “Quickly admonish the priest,” was the recommendation included in the file in the archives of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Il Mattino reported: SANTIAGO, Chile — A number of Chilean Catholics reacted with disappointment and anger on Friday, a day after Pope Francis spoke in defense of a bishop who they say protected a pedophile priest. The remarks, made on Thursday just before Francis left Chile for Peru, upended his efforts to rehabilitate the Catholic Church’s reputation while visiting South America.

Francis told reporters Thursday there was not a shred of evidence against Bishop Juan Barros Madrid, who victims of the Rev. Fernando Karadima, Chile’s most notorious priest, have accused of being complicit in his crimes.

“The day someone brings me proof against Bishop Barros, then I will talk,” Francis said before celebrating Mass outside the northern Chilean city of Iquique. “But there is not one single piece of evidence. It is all slander. Is that clear?”

The pope’s comments set off a storm in Chile, raising questions about his commitment to repairing the damage from sexual abuse scandals and improving the decline in the church’s image and following in the traditionally devout country.

Benito Baranda, coordinator of the pope’s visit to Chile, told a radio station in Santiago that Bishop Barros “should have ceased to be bishop a long time ago.” He added: “The damage he is inflicting on the church is big.”

Mr. Baranda, a psychologist, said that the church “never believed Karadima’s victims from the start” and that the pope’s support for the bishop “reignites the feeling of not being believed, or that they are exaggerating or being deceitful. It’s like when children say they suffer abuse but no one believes them because they are children.”

However, the president of the Chilean bishops’ conference, Msgr. Santiago Silva, said the organization would “unconditionally support” the pope’s position on Bishop Barros. “The pope told us what he wants, and he wants Monsignor Barros to continue,” Monsignor Silva said.

Alejandro Goic, the bishop of Rancagua, said that what “the pope says has extraordinary value,” but he added that “the church’s main priority should be the victims.”

Anne Barrett Doyle, a co-director of BishopAccountability.org, a group that monitors abuse cases, called the pope’s remarks “a stunning setback.”

She added: “He has just turned back the clock to the darkest days of this crisis. Who knows how many victims now will decide to stay hidden, for fear they will not be believed?”

And the government’s spokeswoman, Paula Narváez, said on her Twitter account: “Respecting, believing and supporting victims of sexual abuse is an ethical imperative. No institutional defense can override this basic principle for a fair society, one that is empathetic with those who most need it.”

Father Karadima was convicted by the Vatican in 2011 of abusing teenage boys beginning in the 1980s, and he was ordered to lead a “life of prayer and penitence.” That year, a judge found the allegations “truthful and reliable” but dismissed a criminal case because the statute of limitations had expired.

Bishop Barros, a former military chaplain, was part of Father Karadima’s inner circle and, according to one of the victims, witnessed the priest’s advances on him.

“As if I could have taken a selfie or picture while Karadima abused me or others and Juan Barros stood there watching it all,” one of Father Karadima’s victims, Juan Carlos Cruz, wrote on Twitter.

Despite the allegations against Father Barros, Francis appointed him bishop of Osorno, in southern Chile, in 2015. Dozens of priests and legislators said they opposed the move.

The pope told a group of tourists visiting Vatican City in 2015 that people in Orsono who protested the appointment were “dumb.”

“The Osorno community is suffering because it’s dumb,” he said, according to video recorded by one of the tourists. The city had “let its head be filled with what politicians say, judging a bishop without any proof.”

This week, lay and religious groups from Osorno and Santiago, the capital, protested throughout the pope’s visit and called for action against the bishop.

But Bishop Barros has continued to enjoy the support of the Vatican, and there was no public indication that Francis was reconsidering his position. Bishop Barros participated in the pope’s ceremonies in Santiago, Iquique and the southern city of Temuco. In Iquique, Bishop Barros told reporters that Francis had offered him “words of support and affection.”

The Associated Press reported that Francis had acknowledged the furor over the legacy of Father Karadima in a 2015 letter to the Chilean bishop’s conference. The letter said the pope proposed Bishop Barros and two other bishops go on sabbatical before taking up any new positions, a plan that ultimately fell apart.

Francis began his visit to Chile on Tuesday morning by publicly apologizing for the sexual abuse involving the clergy, saying he felt “pained and ashamed” over the “irreparable damage” done to their victims. But he refused to meet with victims of Father Karadima.

“What the pope has done today is offensive and painful, and not only against us, but against everyone seeking to end the abuses,” James Hamilton, one of the victims, said during a news conference Thursday.

The archbishop of Santiago, Francisco Javier Errázuriz, who has been harshly criticized by Father Karadima’s victims for failing to protect them or investigate their accusations at the time, said the controversy over Bishop Barros was an “invention.”

Georgia school to drug-test students by using hair samples
// Boston Herald: The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports that Brookstone School in Columbus recently announced that the drug-testing of students in grades 8-12 will be voluntary next school year — and then mandatory in succeeding years……..Psychemedics automatically will test Brookstone students for 18 types of drugs. Alcohol isn’t among them, but parents and guardians may request their child’s test to include alcohol screening, the newspaper reported………The focus of the program is the health and well-being of students, Brookstone said in a statement.

“There is a national drug crisis impacting all communities and all schools,” it said. “Brookstone is committed to responding to this national health issue and being fully engaged in proactively making a positive difference in the lives of its students.”

School officials added that drug-testing will improve the school’s ability to work with parents and health professionals to help students…….”The daily news has made us all acutely aware of the significance and size of this growing crisis. We must be a part of the solution as we work to save children from this critical health issue,” Jason Branch, chairman of the school’s board of trustees, said in a statement…….Brookstone has about 800 students, including 370 in grades 8-12, school spokeswoman Connie Mansour said…….The reaction from Brookstone parents has been “overwhelmingly positive,” said Marty Lester, the Head of School………Lester acknowledged “a few” parents have criticised the policy, but the concern has been more about questioning how the policy came about and how it will be implemented, he said. No parents have told him they will remove their child from Brookstone because of the policy, he said……..

Brookstone hired Lester 1½ years ago from St. Paul’s Episcopal School in Mobile, Alabama, where students have been drug-tested for a dozen years, he said……..”In all my years there and in all the parent meetings I had to talk about it, I can remember only one that ended badly,” he said. “The other ones all ended with a ‘Thank you.'”

(GEORGIA, Ala.) Mother says her son was suspended for reporting he overheard a discussion over gun talk at his school Friday police received a 911 call saying that a student overheard another student saying he was bringing a gun to school, nothing was found but she says he was told to report anything suspicious and this is the result: Suspension was lifted sometime later #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Feb.18: A Daphne mother was upset because she said her son followed the rule, “if you see something, say something,” and got suspended in the process: After hearing about the student’s suspension, Superintendent Eddie Tyler told FOX10 News he has spoken with the student as well as the child’s mother and has “lifted that discipline.”……“I put out a message to our system and our parents to encourage your children to come forward. If you see something, say something and that’s what some students have done; that’s what I would expect them to do

Mother from Alabama says her son was suspended for reporting gun talk to school There were a couple of incidents this past week were students saw something, heard something and said something…….And with this young man at Daphne; I’ve just spoken to him and I’ve spoken to his mother who was very gracious in giving me some time. I explained to her the situation that I assumed which is a bad thing to do, that no discipline was given to any of these children that have come forward. When I found out that there was discipline levied on the student at Daphne that concerned me. I have lifted that discipline. I didn’t approve that discipline.”

Friday, police received a 911 call that a student overheard another student say he was going to bring a gun to school:

Police responded to the scene and no gun was found. Police say it was a misunderstanding. They say two fourth graders were talking about a Nerf gun fight………Following the incident on Friday, Superintendent Eddie Tyler released a statement that reads in part:“This morning a student made flippant comments on a Daphne bus about bringing guns to school, another student heard it and called 911 from the bus,” Tyler wrote in a statement published on Facebook. “The bus was soon surrounded by law enforcement. There was needless panic and chaos.”……….Tyler said it is important for adults as well as children to keep all communication channels “clear of idle talk and hearsay.”……..He wrote, “Please stress to your child NOT to talk about guns, bringing guns to school or any of the sort, and if they see something or hear something, to not converse about it but to say something immediately to a teacher, administrator or school resource officer.”………The bus was heading to JW Carroll Intermediate School and Daphne East Elementary. Principals from both schools issued statements assuring parents that students were never in any danger.

The mother posted:

This morning a child called 911 from a Daphne bus. He believed that another child had threatened to bring a gun. My son is the one that made the call. He was afraid and I had just spent the night before drilling into his brain “IF YOU SEE OR HEAR SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING”. He did what he thought was the safest and most right thing to do. I am so proud of him and have told him so repeatedly. However, he was pulled out of class, made to write a statement of what happened(before we were called), told by his principal that he was in trouble, and hauled in to a meeting, from lunch, to ultimately be suspended. Suspended. For doing what he thought was right. We are as bewildered as anyone reading this. We finally got a response from Eddie Tyler’s office asking us to wait until he can review the information on Monday. Meanwhile, my boy is heartbroken and confused. He did good, my boy. I could not be more proud. WJ Carrol, not so much.”

Tyler went on to apologise to the mother and her son. Tyler said he wants students to come forward however that if there is ever a situation where a student comes forward and officials discover it was done in an attempt to gain attention, they will sort through it and deal with it.

(TEL AVIV, Israel.) Lawmakers accused Poland’s prime minister of anti-Semitism Saturday for equating the Polish perpetrators in the Holocaust to its supposed “Jewish perpetrators,” setting off a new chapter in an angry dispute over Poland’s new bill criminalizing the mention of Polish complicity in the Nazi-led genocide #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Feb.18: Yair Lapid, head of the centrist opposition Yesh Atid party, said Israel should recall its ambassador immediately in response to Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki’s comments, which he called “anti-Semitism of the oldest kind.”: “The perpetrators are not the victims. The Jewish state will not allow the murdered to be blamed for their own murder,” said Lapid, the son of a Holocaust survivor #AceNewsDesk reports

Labor Party leader Avi Gabbay said Morawiecki sounded like any other Holocaust denier with the remark he gave in Munich, Germany on Saturday:

“The blood of millions of Jews cries from the earth of Poland over the distortion of history and the escape from blame. Jews were murdered in the Holocaust and Poles took an active part in their murder,” Gabbay said. “The government of Israel has to be a voice for the millions of murdered and strongly denounce the Polish prime minister’s words.”

Morawiecki was responding to a question from an Israeli journalist at the Munich Security Conference. Asking about a new Polish law that criminalizes some statements about the Holocaust, the journalist shared a personal story about his parents being reported to the Nazis by Polish neighbors. He asked if he would now be considered a criminal in Poland for relating the story.

“Of course it’s not going to be punishable, not going to be seen as criminal, to say that there were Polish perpetrators, as there were Jewish perpetrators, as there were Russian perpetrators, as there were Ukrainian, not only German perpetrators,” Morawiecki said in response.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who also attended the Munich conference, called his Polish counterpart’s comment “outrageous.”

“There is a problem here of lack of understanding of history and lack of sensitivity to the tragedy of our people,” Netanyahu said, adding that he planned to speak with Morawiecki soon.

It was just the latest fallout from the Polish Holocaust speech law that has drawn outrage in Israel and elsewhere.

In recent weeks, Israeli officials have sharply criticized the legislation that criminalizes blaming Poland as a nation for crimes committed by Nazi Germany. Israeli critics have accused Poland of seeking to use the law to whitewash the role of some Poles who helped Germans kill Jews during the war. Holocaust scholars estimate that Poles killed about 200,000 Jews during the Holocaust.

Polish authorities say they just want to protect Poland from being depicted as a collaborator of the Nazis when the country was Adolf Hitler’s first victim and suffered through nearly six years of war and occupation.

Israeli Labor Party lawmaker Itzik Shmuly, who is pushing for a counter bill in the Israeli parliament to criminalize the denial of Nazi collaboration, quipped on Twitter that “the next step of Morawiecki’s pathetic project to erase the crimes of the Polish people is probably going to be blaming the Jews for their own Holocaust and presenting the Nazis as victims of the circumstances.”

Morawiecki’s office had no immediate reaction to the uproar in Israel.
