Our meeting with the Chairman of the Revenue Commissioners is a chance for the Committee to discuss the structure, timing and operation of the scheme. The purpose of the meeting is to deal with any ambiguity and concerns in regards to the payment of the local property tax and, in some circumstances, to establish how the issue of how premature payments is dealt with and how payments will be made when they are actually due“We will also raise the issue of Revenue’s customer service on the issue – particularly how concerns are not related to the issue of compliancy, but an issue of good customer service, in which people who wish to pay the tax are finding that they are making the payment before its due date.” First Irish death from Coronavirus last_img read more

‘We demand justice’: Family of Texas woman fatally shot in her home by police officer want feds to investigate

first_imgABC News(FORT WORTH, TX.) — Loved ones of a Texas woman who was shot to death in her home by a police officer who was sent to check her family’s welfare demanded the officer be immediately fired and arrested and that the federal government take charge of the investigation. The family of 28-year-old Atatiana “Tay” Jefferson, killed early Saturday by a Fort Worth police officer who allegedly fired through a window of her home striking her while failing to identify himself as police, spoke out at a news conference to demand justice. “This man murdered someone. He should be arrested,” said Jefferson’s brother, Adarius Carr, a member of the U.S. Navy. “I’ve served my country for the last 12 years. In that time, I’ve been trained and taught that there are preplanned responses for everything you do. Everything you’re trained about, there’s a way to do things. And when you don’t do it the way you’ve been trained or the way you’ve been taught, you have to answer for that,” Carr said. “The Fort Worth PD cannot investigate themselves. The U.S. Navy is not allowed to do it, they should not be as well.”Lee Merritt, a civil rights attorney representing Jefferson’s family, said the shooting shows that the Fort Worth Police Department is “in need of serious systematic reform.”“Of course this family is calling for the firing of this officer. That’s benign. That’s the least that we should expect,” Merritt said.Merritt said the family is calling on the Department of Justice or the FBI to investigate the killing, adding that the officer, whose name had not been released, should be “vigorously prosecuted.”“We expect this to happen immediately,” Merritt said. “This (the shooting) happened Saturday. Why this man is not in handcuffs right now is a source of continued agitation for this family and for this community, and it must be addressed.”UNACCEPTABLE! The acts of yet another “trained” police officer have resulted in the death of #AtatianaJefferson. Gun downed in her own home. If we are not safe to call the police, if we are not safe in our homes, where can we find peace? We demand answers. We demand justice.— NAACP (@NAACP) October 13, 2019The shooting unfolded about 2:30 a.m. on Saturday after a neighbor of Jefferson’s called the police department’s non-emergency line to asked that a welfare check be conducted on Jefferson’s home because the lights were on and the back and front doors were open.Lt. Brandon O’Neil said at a news conference Sunday afternoon that two officers were sent to the home on East Allen Avenue. He said the officers arrived at the house at 2:29 am. and parked near Jefferson’s home, but not in front of the residence.O’Neil said the officers walked around the back of the house, and that one of the officers observed a person through the rear window of the home and opened fire.Body-camera footage released by the department shows the officer approaching a rear window of the home with his gun drawn. The officer sees the woman through the window, shouts, “Put your hands up, show me your hands,” and fires one shot.“Perceiving a threat, the officer drew his duty weapon and fired one shot striking the person inside the residence,” a statement from the police department reads.Responding officers entered the home, located the shooting victim and began providing emergency care.Jefferson died at the scene.O’Neil said the officer who opened fire on Jefferson never identified himself as a police officer.“What the officer observed and why he did not announce ‘police’ will be addressed as the investigation continues,” O’Neil said.Merritt said that Jefferson and her 8-year-old nephew Zion were playing video games when they heard someone in the bushes outside their home and went to a bedroom window to investigate. He said Jefferson stopped her nephew from looking out the window, that she was shot when she peered into the darkness.“It was less than a second,” Merritt said of the shooting. “I had an expert slow it (the body-camera video) down. It was .6 second between the command and the shot. There was no time for them to perceive a threat from a weapon. There was no time for her to respond. It was reckless, deadly behavior.”Fort Worth Police Chief Ed Kraus has scheduled a news conference for Monday afternoon to discuss the shooting.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
