Cedarville, Calif. — Cherie Lash Rhoades’ temper was well known among the many small Indian tribes settled in Modoc County, tribal members say.

One man said he started avoiding Rhoades after witnessing an outburst years ago when the two served on a committee for a Native American healthcare clinic.

"Something didn't go her way, so she picked up the corner of the table and threw it," said Sonny Craig, a member of the Pit River tribe just outside Alturas.

Even within her tiny Cedarville Rancheria tribe, Rhoades could be confrontational, a member of the tribe said.

But what happened when Rhoades was called before the tribal council last week to face embezzlement charges and possible eviction from the rancheria has stunned the community.

Police say that at Thursday's hearing, Rhoades, 44, pulled out a gun and opened fire, then grabbed a butcher knife and continued on a bloody rampage. Four people were killed, including her brother, 19-year-old niece, 30-year-old nephew and the tribal administrator. Two others remain hospitalized in serious condition.

Rhoades faces charges of murder, attempted murder and child endangerment.

A federal Bureau of Indian Affairs official said there were about 18 adults at the meeting and some children. A blood-covered woman who escaped the shooting was an office worker whom police have declined to identify.

"This came as a complete shock to everyone in the tribe," said Jack Duran, who serves as the tribe's general counsel. "All of these folks are related."

Cedarville Rancheria is a small, federally recognized tribe of 35 people, most of whom live on its 26-acre reservation. It is one of a number of tribes that fall under the umbrella of Northern Paiutes, whose territory includes parts of California, Oregon, Nevada and Idaho.

A member of a nearby tribe said Rhoades had been suspected of embezzling money at the rancheria. Representatives for the FBI and the U.S. attorney with jurisdiction over the region declined to comment. Duran would say only that Rhoades was being investigated for alleged improprieties.

He said tribal members received a portion of casino proceeds from outside tribes with casinos, but that Cedarville Rancheria did not operate a casino. The rancheria owns a gas station and store on the road into the town of Cedarville, which provides members with additional income. The headquarters, where the shooting took place, is 20 miles away in Alturas.

"The interesting thing about this tribe is that they got along very well with both communities — Cedarville and Alturas," Duran said. "It's one of the only tribes where you have some sort of harmony. "

But Rhoades was known for her bullying.

In Cedarville, she was the only tribal member not welcome at the Country Hearth Restaurant and Bakery, said Janet Irene, owner of the restaurant.

"She was forceful. She was a loudmouth," Irene said. "She would threaten to beat people up all the time."

Irene never worried about the repercussions of booting her out. The soft-spoken Georgia native has a .40-caliber handgun behind the counter and a 10-gauge shotgun hanging on the wall.

Corrupt ‘Kids for Cash’ judge ruined more than 2,000 lives

http://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/ciavarella_verdict_1_89205127.jpg

Hillary Transue, 14, created a fake, humorous Myspace page about her school’s vice principal.

Justin Bodnar, 12, cursed at another student’s mother.

Ed Kenzakoski, 17, did nothing at all.

It didn’t matter.

As we see in the documentary “Kids for Cash,” which opens Friday, all three Luzerne County, Pa. teens met the same fate for their minor infractions.

They were hauled into court with their parents, sometimes ­after being persuaded — coerced, according to at least one parent — by police to waive their right to ­legal counsel.

They were brought before Judge Mark A. Ciavarella and, without warning or the chance to offer a defense, found themselves pronounced guilty, shackled and sentenced to months of detention in a cockroach-infested jail.

They were trapped in the juvenile justice system for years, robbing most of them of their entire high-school experience.

Judge Ciavarella, who sentenced around 3,000 children in a similar manner, was later sentenced himself to 28 years in prison for financial crimes related to his acceptance of $2.2 million as a finder’s fee for the construction of a for-profit facility in which to house these so-called delinquents.

The scandal was called “Kids for Cash,” and it rocked the state in 2009 — for the accusation that Ciavarella was happy to tear families apart in exchange for the payoff.

Kenzakoski was diagnosed with ADD before he was 10 and drinking by 14, and his parents were so worried about him that his father developed a plan to scare him straight.

Along with two police officer buddies, Kenzakoski’s father planted a marijuana pipe in the boy’s truck, hoping he would be arrested and turned around after a confrontation with the authorities.

But the second part of that plan went awry, and Ciavarella sent the boy away.

In the film, Bodnar recalls how, shackled and torn from his home for saying a dirty word, he approached the facility on a convict bus and saw the 20-foot razor wire.

“I’m now one of those people you see in the movies,” thought the 12-year-old, who would smoke pot for the first time three months later, influenced by “living around criminals” in a facility intended to make him a better person.

After her release from incarceration, Transue returned to school with a stigma, viewed as a criminal by her teachers and under watch from her probation officer, who kept an office in the school.

Mark Ciavarella was elected to a 10-year-term as Luzerne County judge in 1995, on a platform of getting tough on teen crime. Much admired for his stance, he was a frequent speaker at schools and was re-elected in 2005.

Knowing he was sending children to a run-down detention facility, Ciavarella decided a new one was needed and approached power broker Judge Michael Conahan, who assembled an investor group to build a private, for-profit detention facility named PA Child Care.

Ciavarella was paid a finder’s fee of 10 percent of construction costs, or $2.2 million, by its builder.

Undone by a tip from a reputed underworld friend of Conahan’s, among other information, Ciavarella had 2,480 of his convictions reversed and expunged.
Modal Trigger

A scene from “Kids for Cash.”

After his initial release, Bodnar, now 24, was shipped off to a military academy. He now works as a cook. Transue, 22, eventually graduated from college.

A fender-bender landed Kenzakoski back in court when he was 19. Ciavarella again sentenced him to a juvenile facility. When he got out, said his mother, his demeanor was all pent-up anger, and a fight landed him in state prison.

He was released in January 2010. That Memorial Day, after a day of drinking and arguing with his father, Ed Kenzakoski placed a gun against his heart, and pulled the trigger. Had he lived, he would now be 27 years old.

The most harrowing moment in the film occurs during Ciavarella’s trial. As his lawyer holds a press conference outside the courthouse, Kenzakoski’s mother, Sandy Fonzo, who had been standing to the side, unleashed years of pain and anguish on the man she held responsible.

“My kid’s not here anymore! He’s dead! Because of him!” she screamed, pointing at Ciavarella as news cameras rolled. “He ruined my f—ing life!!! Go to hell, and rot there forever! You know what he told everybody in court — [the kids] need to be held accountable for their actions! You need to be!”

At the end of “Kids for Cash,” directed by Robert May, information flashes across the screen saying: “Two million children are arrested every year in the US, 95% for non-violent crimes”; that “66% of children who have been incarcerated never return to school”; and that “the US incarcerates nearly 5 times more children than any other nation in the world.” cool

The Intercept

Inside the Mind of James Clapper

By Glenn Greenwald
24 Feb 2014, 7:50 AM EST

I’m going to have a story published later today about a new document, but until then, this new interview with (and profile of) Director of National Intelligence James Clapper by the Daily Beast‘s Eli Lake is worth spending a few moments examining. Last week, Lake published one excerpt of his interview where Clapper admitted that the U.S. Government should have told the American people that the NSA was collecting their communications records: as pure a vindication of Edward Snowden’s choice as it gets, for obvious reasons. But there are several new, noteworthy revelations from this morning’s article:

Thanks to rogue contractor Edward Snowden, the machinations of the shadow bureaucracy Clapper heads have for the last eight months been exposed one news story at a time. Clapper is often the guy who has to call newspaper editors to tell them not to print stories that they usually publish anyway.

This process of pre-publication notice to the government of NSA stories has been wildly misreported in some places. I’ve long expressed contempt for this process where it results in the suppression of information that should be public; where it essentially elevates U.S. officials into publication partners by engaging in protracted “negotiations” with them over what can and cannot be published; and especially where it means news organizations knowingly allow government officials to lie by withholding the actual facts.

For all the NSA stories published over the last eight months all around the world, the U.S. government was notified prior to publication (usually very shortly prior) by the news organizations’ editors (never, to my knowledge, by the journalists, at least not by me). News organizations do this for two reasons.

The first is legal: the U.S. Government insists that the publication of classified information, especially that which relates to “communications intelligence”, is a felony (see 18 U.S § 798), so every media lawyer vehemently argues that allowing the government an opportunity to make the case for why something shouldn’t be published is necessary to show a lack of criminal intent, i.e., to avoid criminal prosecution even while publishing top secret documents; the other is journalistic: it makes sense that journalists making choices about what to publish and what to say about documents would want more, rather than less, information when deciding.

I can’t speak for what The Washington Post or New York Times have done, but for the NSA articles on which I’ve worked – at the Guardian and with more than a dozen media outlets around the world - the government has argued in most cases that the story and accompanying documents should not be published. And in almost every single case – 99% if not more – those arguments have been rejected in their entirety and the stories and documents were published anyway. In fact, for the dozens and dozens of stories and documents on which I’ve worked, I can only recall a single case where anything the government said resulted in anything being withheld that we had decided to publish, and that was a trivial aspect of one part of one document which, unbeknownst to us, could have revealed the identity of an NSA employee (the Guardian and New York Times, without my involvement, both withheld some details on their story about NSA/GCHQ compromising of encryption standards, though primarily – as I understand it – because publishing the handful of compromised standards we knew about would mislead people into believing the other compromised standards (the vast majority of which weren’t revealed by the documents) were safe).

In every single other case, the government’s arguments for non-publication were rejected, usually because they were vague and unpersuasive. So while it’s true that the government’s input has been permitted prior to publication – just as journalists seek the input of anyone about which they’re writing – Lake is correct that in most cases (in my experience, almost all) that official input demanding suppression was rejected, exactly as it should have been.

To this day the U.S. government doesn’t know the full extent of what Snowden revealed or whether more documents that have yet to be published in the press have made their way into the hands of Russian or Chinese intelligence agencies.

It’s been rather amazing to watch not only the standard roster of government-loyal American journalists, but also those who fancy themselves some sort of cynical critics, uncritically regurgitate the government’s evidence-free assertion that Snowden took and then gave to journalists 1.7 million documents. It amazes me because: (1) anyone at this point who is willing to equate evidence-free government assertions with Truth is drowning in some extreme levels of authoritarianism, by definition; and (2) the government clearly has no idea what Snowden took, as report after report has made crystal clear.

Covering nearly an entire wall of the waiting area outside Clapper’s office is a wooden relief sculpture dedicated to the U.S. Constitution. It contains a flag, a rendition of the constitutional assembly, and a copy of the document itself. It also has a plaque that reads, “What is the magic of the Constitution? The magic is how it states: We, the people. For the first time in history, government was about the people, not about the leader.”

Yes, that’s right: James Clapper has converted the wall outside of his office into a flamboyant homage to the very same U.S Constitution that he vandalizes on a daily basis. That is the greatest act of either deliberately overt contempt for the public or pathological self-delusion since Barack Obama advocated a legalized system of “preventive detention” in 2009 while he stood in front of the U.S. Constitution at the National Archive. Someone may want to explain to Clapper that a primary impetus for that Constitution, and for the American Revolution generally, was hatred of the King’s “general warrants” whereby people could be subject to searches without a whiff of evidence of wrongdoing.

Clapper also acknowledges that the very human nature of the bureaucracy he controls virtually insures that more mass disclosures are inevitable. “In the end,” he says, “we will never ever be able to guarantee that there will not be an Edward Snowden or another Chelsea Manning because this is a large enterprise composed of human beings with all their idiosyncrasies.”

That is indeed true, and it’s good news: more Chelsea Mannings and Edward Snowdens are inevitable, and there is nothing the U.S. Government can do to stop them. That’s good news because it means government officials will have to operate on the assumption that what they do in the dark will become public (an excellent deterrent) and because that type of transparency is inherently healthy in a political culture where secrecy is rampant and the institutions designed to check it (Congress, the media, the federal judiciary) have all profoundly failed.

This also underscores why the U.S. Government has been so vindictive in trying to punish the likes of Manning and other whistleblowers. Since they have no means of preventing these sorts of leaks, their only hope is to create a climate of fear and intimidation: if you are thinking about exposing our bad acts, look at what we did to Chelsea Manning or Tom Drake and think twice. That’s why it’s been so vital – and, for the U.S. national security state, so devastating – that Edward Snowden has remained out of their grasp: rather than getting to parade him in front of the world in an orange jumpsuit and shackles, U.S. officials are forced to watch as he is hailed as an international hero, receives award after award, and participates freely in the debate he triggered. That, in turn, allows the template he used to be a positive one, one that will undoubtedly inspire future whistleblowers.

[Democratic Sen. Ron] Wyden in a statement told The Daily Beast, “It’s true that no one knows what is going through a witness’s head when they are sitting at the witness table, other than the witness himself. Unfortunately, over the past several years a number of senior officials have repeatedly made misleading and inaccurate statements about domestic surveillance at congressional hearings and in other public settings.”

The lie Clapper criminally told to the U.S. Senate in March, 2013 has received the bulk of attention, but as Wyden makes clear, NSA and other senior officials have been repeatedly lying about U.S. surveillance to the Congress, to courts, and in public over and over about all sorts of things. That’s what makes the slavish equating by the U.S. media of “unproven NSA claims” with “truth” so embarrassingly subservient and irrational. It’s also what makes the eagerness of American journalists to demand Snowden’s imprisonment – contrasted with their fear of doing the same for Clapper – such a powerful illustration of their true allegiances and function.

Others are less charitable. Last month Sen. Rand Paul, the libertarian Republican from Kentucky, said if Snowden was to face justice, he should “share a jail cell with James Clapper” for lying to Congress.

“Well Senator Paul says I should get to know [Snowden] by being in the same prison cell with him, which I don’t think is a good idea,” Clapper told The Daily Beast last week. “Probably wouldn’t be in Mr. Snowden’s best interest.”

This statement – half creepy prison fantasy and half threat – is unsurprising. The need for U.S. officials to publicly express a desire for violence when it comes to Snowden has asserted itself over and over.

Japan Times

No-go advisory to be lifted in part of Tamura

JIJI

Feb 24, 2014

FUKUSHIMA – An evacuation advisory issued after the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant meltdowns in March 2011 will likely be lifted April 1 in part of the city of Tamura.

The government explained plans for lifting the advisory in the Miyakoji district at a meeting with its residents on Sunday.

The Miyakoji district was part of the former no-go zone set 20 km away from Tokyo Electric Power Co.’s Fukushima No. 1 nuclear plant, which was crippled by the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami.

It will be the first time for the evacuation advisory to be lifted completely in any part of the zone. Residents from the Miyakoji district will be able to return home permanently once it is removed.

The government headquarters for the nuclear disaster will make a final decision on the advisory by March 31. Its decontamination efforts in the district were completed last June.

The government decided to lift the advisory after Tepco’s compensation program for residents there and measures to help them rebuild their lives were worked out in December.

As of the end of 2013, 358 people representing 117 households were registered as residents in the Miyakoji district. According to a survey by the government and other parties, 44 percent of the residents intend to return.

Sunday’s meeting was attended by Kazuyoshi Akaba, state minister of economy, trade and industry, and other government officials, as well as Tamura Mayor Yukei Tomitsuka.

The government explained steps to be taken ahead of the residents’ return, including the restoration of commercial and medical facilities. The government also briefed residents about plans to lend out dosimeters to help them monitor their health conditions.

Some of the residents repeated their desire for the evacuation advisory to be lifted early, while others demanding another round of decontamination opposed it.

In April 2012, the Miyakoji district’s no-go zone status was changed to one permitting daytime visitation and preparations for removal of the evacuation advisory. Last October, the government presented plans to lift the advisory on Nov. 1. At the time, however, many residents were opposed due to persistent concerns about radioactive fallout, leading the government to withdraw the plan.

Among other Fukushima areas included in the former no-go zones, preparations to lift the evacuation advisory are expected to fully start in the village of Kawauchi and the town of Naraha. Decontamination work is nearly complete in Kawauchi and is expected to finish at the end of March in Naraha.

This is another of my famous Twofer value added moment post...

I feed the birds outside my office, and I swear there’s a crow that waits for me. Is that possible? Have I made the bird dependent on me? If I don’t feed it, will it get mad?

If science has taught humanity anything, it’s never to underestimate crows. In a study published in Nature Communications last fall, for example, researchers gave crows memory tests—the birds had to peck at images on a touchscreen—and found they were capable of a level of focus and cognitive flexibility that even humans can struggle with. And crows can, in fact, recognize and remember human faces: wildlife biologist John Marzluff and his colleagues have proven this, in part by trapping and handling crows—which pisses them off—while wearing caveman masks. When they later walked around in the masks, the crows cawed angrily.

These are shrewd and resilient birds, in other words. And they have fetching personalities. (Remember that viral video of a Russian crow sledding gleefully down a frosty sloped roof on a jar lid? I’d hang out with that crow!) What I’m saying is, you and this crow are in a relationship. What you’re asking for, essentially, is relationship advice.

Will the crow be let down if you stop feeding it? Without a doubt. Breaking up is hard to do. Still, after running your predicament by Marzluff, the idea that the crow is “dependent” on you seems a little self-important. “The crow is certainly working the person,” Marzluff said. “It will find another meal.”

See, the crow has seduced you into a much more psychologically complicated relationship than you thought. In fact, Marzluff, with a colleague, has even worked up a typology of human crow-feeders. “Crow observers” take a detached, transactional view; “crow friends” say things like “Isabella scolded me when I got too close to her kids. Her anger has no bounds.” (If it isn’t obvious, Isabella is a crow.)

So, summing up: The bird’s just not that into you. You’re free to stop feeding it because the crow doesn’t actually need you. But ask yourself, how much do you need the crow?
