After a Brooklyn Episcopalian died of COVID-19 in prison, his…

first_img Submit a Job Listing Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Course Director Jerusalem, Israel The Rev. Steven Paulikas gives the invocation at the opening of the New York Senate session on Feb. 24, 2020, reading the Collect for Prisons and Correctional Institutions in the Book of Common Prayer. Photo: New York Senate[Episcopal News Service] The Rev. Steven Paulikas, rector of All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Brooklyn, New York, was already involved with criminal justice reform efforts before one of his parishioners was sent to prison. Maintaining his pastoral relationship with the man, Paulikas saw firsthand the harsh realities of New York state’s prison system. But COVID-19 – and the state’s failure to prevent its spread in prisons – turned the man’s 2-year sentence into a death sentence. He died of the virus at age 68, about a month and a half into the pandemic, after telling Paulikas he was scared that prison staff were bringing the virus into the facility.Disturbed by the state’s apparent disregard for the lives of his parishioner and other inmates, Paulikas sought answers from government officials – and a sense of accountability for their failure. Getting none, he wrote an opinion essay published by The New York Times on May 31, which criticized the state’s treatment of prisoners. The essay has been praised by many advocates of prison reform, such as Piper Kerman, author of “Orange Is the New Black.”The Rev. Steven Paulikas. Photo: All Saints’ Episcopal Church“When the state deprives people of their freedom, it also assumes responsibility for their safety,” Paulikas wrote. “I don’t want to live in a society that is comfortable locking away so many of its members, yet treats their lives with indifference. I can no longer stand a status quo in which someone like my parishioner loses his life for no good reason.”Paulikas talked with Episcopal News Service about his parishioner’s life and death and why prison reform is a moral imperative for Christians. This interview has been condensed and edited for clarity and brevity. The parishioner was convicted of a sex crime involving a minor, so his name is not being used to protect the victim’s privacy.Episcopal News Service: How long had you known him?PAULIKAS: Since I came to the church; I’ve been here 10 years this week.ENS: How did it impact the parish when he was convicted?PAULIKAS: For reasons of pastoral sensitivity, and also because this person never wanted the parish to know where he was, I and the other people who knew what had happened did not share what happened to him. So he just kind of was no longer around. Most of all, I wanted to protect the privacy both of my parishioner and of the victim of his crime. Many people didn’t know even though he was incarcerated; people knew he had died because we made that announcement and we had a liturgy over Zoom shortly after he died, which was heartbreaking.ENS: What was your experience with criminal justice reform before this?PAULIKAS: I don’t consider myself an activist or an organizer. I got involved in criminal justice reform in New York state because of an extremely talented and influential rabbi in our community, Rabbi Rachel Timoner, who’s the head rabbi at Congregation Beth Elohim here in Park Slope. At the time, we were working on overturning cash bail in New York state, which is a horrible justice issue, and eventually legislation passed the New York Legislature in 2020 to eliminate cash bail. Gov. Cuomo used his executive powers later that year to overturn it, which was just this horrible thing. So that sort of activated me, and then learning more and more about the injustices in the criminal justice system made it very clear to me that the Gospel is just so clearly calling us to advocate for criminal justice reform.ENS: Why is it important for Episcopalians to be involved in this work?PAULIKAS: Sometimes Episcopalians can have a self-concept of being advocates from the side or the outside, but this actually happened to an Episcopalian. An Episcopalian died of COVID in prison. It’s our community, and it touches so many people’s lives – not just incarcerated Episcopalians but Episcopalians who work as correctional officers and law enforcement officers and public defenders and prosecutors. We all have our own ministries, many of which touch on the criminal justice system, and pretty much anyone who is thinking about it or looking at it understands that it’s a broken system, and that people are suffering. I am so grateful to fellow Episcopalians and Christians who are working to reform the system, and I know from what I’ve seen that it’s urgent and it’s necessary. There is such moral clarity about it. There are so many issues that the Gospel calls us to act on, but this one, criminal justice reform and reform of the prison system, is just so clearly something that God is calling us to work on. So many Episcopalians are working on it already. I have, through my own experience, understood how important it is, and I hope that more Episcopalians will join us in whatever way they can.Criminal justice reform was one of the central demands of the “Protest Is Also Prayer” event organized by the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York on June 6, 2020. Photo: Cathedral of St. John the DivineENS: What prompted you to speak out so publicly about your parishioner’s death?PAULIKAS: I wanted to tell the story of my parishioner because he couldn’t, and to show that this is something that is active and moving in our church. I will guarantee you that if Episcopalians led the way among all Christians in the United States, from mainline Protestants to evangelicals to Roman Catholics, and we all united on this issue, the system would change overnight. If we made our elected officials responsive to our moral calls, the system absolutely would change and people’s lives would change. Because right now, people’s lives are being destroyed, and it happens disproportionately to people who do not have economic resources and also to people of color.I learned that he died in May of 2020. I officiated his funeral over Zoom, and I just kept thinking about it. And I watched as the governor was on television every day talking about what a great job the state was doing in fighting COVID, and I knew that my parishioner had died in prison. And there was this surreal moment that I mentioned in the piece, where the governor in a press conference talked about [state-issued] hand sanitizer. The labor was done by incarcerated people, and at the same time, hand sanitizer was not available in New York state prisons. So this sat with me like a lump in my stomach for months and months, and in February of this year, I felt called to tell this story. I just started contacting state officials and asking them – I wanted to find out what happened.I hoped that it would put a human face on suffering that’s happening in prison. As Christians, we’re not called to solve all problems, but we are called to witness suffering and to confront the powers and principalities when we see people who are suffering. So I hope that in some measure, reading about this would have that effect of highlighting human suffering that was preventable. And of calling out those in power who were trying to cover it up.ENS: You had some strong criticism for New York politicians in your essay, and criminal justice reform is ultimately a political issue. How would you respond to Episcopalians who think the church shouldn’t get involved in politics?PAULIKAS: Episcopalians are elected officials on both sides of the aisle. They serve in Congress, they serve in state legislatures, they serve in governors’ offices. We’ve had many presidents who are Episcopalians. Episcopalians are having to make moral decisions all the time. And many of us are leaders in society. When we make decisions, we’re guided by Scripture and our faith and our baptismal covenant. So it’s impossible to separate our faith from our action in the public square. And, especially when we see something as concrete as unnecessary human suffering, we are called to use all of the organs of power, all the points of leverage that we have, to alleviate that suffering, and oftentimes that is engaging in the political process.Now, in my story that I told, it just so happened that the antagonists – if you want to put it that way – are Democratic elected officials. So it’s not a partisan thing. As long as The Episcopal Church doesn’t become attached to a partisan agenda, and as long as we’re attached to moral issues, then we maintain our integrity. But we actually lose our integrity if we decide not to speak out or act about a given issue just because we’re afraid of “seeming political.” There’s no such thing. Not saying something about obvious human suffering is itself a political act.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

He had fled to Mexico in January after Padilla’s murder because he feared that he would also be murdered.According to the information obtained by RSF, the Mexican Commission for Assistance to Refugees (COMAR) had granted provisional “protective measures” to Rivera and a member of his family pending full approval of his asylum application. He had meanwhile been living in Acayucan, and had been making photo and video reports about the lives of other refugees in the city.“We call on the Mexican and Honduran authorities to work together on this case and to examine all possible hypotheses so that this shocking murder does not go unpunished, like so many others,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin American desk. “The state of Veracruz has too long been riddled with violence against the media. This cannot go on.” Mexican journalist Pedro Tamayo Rosas, was gunned down in Tierra Blanca, in Veracruz state, in July 2016 despite being under Veracruz state protection at the time.Rivera was the eighth journalist to be murdered in Mexico this year. The previous victims were Salvador Adame Pardo, Cecilio Pineda Birto, Miroslava Breach, Maximino Rodríguez, Javier Valdez Cárdenas, Ricardo Monlui and Filiberto Álvarez Landeros. Since 2000, more than 100 journalists have been killed in Mexico, which is ranked 147th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.In a report published in February, entitled “Veracruz: journalists and the state of fear,” RSF provides a detailed examination of the flaws in Mexico’s mechanisms for protecting journalists in danger, and offers recommendations for improving the situation. last_img read more

Sonora journalist’s body found a week after his abduction by armed group

first_img MexicoAmericas April 24, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Sonora journalist’s body found a week after his abduction by armed group Reports Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Reporters Without Borders voice its regret today at the news that the body of Saúl Martínez Ortega, a journalist who was kidnapped on 16 April in Agua Prieta in the northwestern state of Sonora, was found yesterday about three hours’ drive away in the neighbouring state of Chihuahua. Forensic experts think he was killed within a few hours of his abduction by a heavily-armed group.The press freedom organisation said it offered its condolences to Martínez’s family and colleagues. Mexico continues to be the western hemisphere’s deadliest country for journalists, with two dead and one missing since the start of the year.Aged 36, Martínez worked for the magazine Interdiario and the Diario de Agua Prieta daily newspaper. He had of late been investigating the abduction and murder of one of his sources, a former Agua Prieta municipal policeman, which occurred a month before his own abduction.—————————————–17.04 – Editor abducted by heavily armed group in Sonora is second Mexican journalist to disappear this yearReporters Without Borders today called for a rapid response from the federal authorities to last night’s abduction of Saúl Martínez Ortega, of the Diario de Agua Prieta Sonora newspaper, in Agua Prieta, in the northwestern state of Sonora. He is the second newspaper journalist to disappear in suspicious circumstances in Mexico this year, following Tabasco Hoy reporter Rodolfo Rincón Taracena in the southeastern state of Tabasco in January.“An anti-drug offensive by the federal authorities is triggering violent reprisals from the traffickers,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Journalists are more exposed than ever to this kind of violence and we fear a sharp decline in press freedom in certain states. The fight against organised crime must be accompanied by a fight against the impunity enjoyed by those responsible for violence against the press. It is up to the federal authorities to carry out investigations, including investigations into the state and municipal governments.”A group of men armed with large-calibre guns kidnapped Martínez outside the municipal security office in Agua Prieta. The local press said he initially tried to escape in his own car but was overtaken by two pickups. Several bullets were later found in his abandoned car.Martínez had been in close touch with Luis Ángel Borboa Canchola, a former Agua Prieta municipal police officer who was abducted in similar circumstances on 13 March. Investigators have not yet established a motive for Martínez’s abduction but they do not rule out the possibility that it was the work of a crime organisation.His abduction comes 10 days after the murder of Televisa correspondent Amado Ramírez in the southern city of Acapulco. Both cases have come at a time of major operations against drug trafficking. On the day of Martínez’s abduction, the federal authorities arrested 100 policemen suspected of corruption and working with organised crime. Similar allegations have been made against aides of the governor of Sonora.

first_imgABC News/WPVI-TVBy JON HAWORTH, ABC News(PHILADELPHIA) — Two college students have been hospitalized after plummeting four stories while they were allegedly trying to take a selfie at a rooftop party, according to ABC News’ Philadelphia station WPVI-TV.The incident occurred at approximately 2 a.m. on Saturday morning when police say some Temple University students were partying and drinking on a rooftop in North Philadelphia when two women, who were reportedly trying to take a selfie together, somehow ended up falling off of the roof and landed in an alleyway four floors below.One of the students suffered leg and ankle injuries and the other is in critical but stable condition with injuries to multiple parts of her body, according to WPVI-TV.“I was actually was delivering pizza back to my friends and I saw ambulances everywhere and police cars everywhere,” said neighbor Neel Patel in an interview with WPVI.“I feel bad for my friend who was there and did see it and had a really rough night trying to deal with that emotionally,” said Temple University student Allison Byrne.According to WPVI, the building’s management company says that the building has a rooftop deck with a parapet wall and railings, but at least one student who has been up there before says it just isn’t safe.“There’s not enough room blocking you from falling off, “said Temple University student Arnav Johri. “So if you’re drinking and you run right into it, it’s really easy to slip right off because it only comes to like a little halfway between your knee and hip.”The circumstances around the accident and the events leading up to it are not clear. Temple Police are handling the investigation, which is also being assisted by the Philadelphia Police.This is not the first time a Temple University student has fallen off of a rooftop while attending a rooftop party. In 2013, 19-year-old freshman, Ali Fausnaught, was at a rooftop party just blocks away from where this latest incident occurred and tripped over a 10-inch ledge around the roof of the building and fell three floors to her death.Neighbors say that not even COVID-19 has put a stop to students partying and some are hoping that this tragic incident is a wake-up call for many of them.“To always get the young adults, who are still children at heart, and they have no fear,” neighbor Ada Banks told WPVI. “We just hope that someone learns from their example not to be on the roof. It happens all the time.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
