'Soldier of Allah' avoids terror charge due to Facebook settings

Fri, 10/13/2017 - 13:05

'Soldier of Allah' avoids terror charge due to Facebook settingsA self-styled “Soldier of Allah” who threatened to blow up a hospital escaped terror charges because of his Facebook settings. Leroy McCarthy, 22, a Muslim convert, described murdered soldier Lee Rigby as a "white coward who invades countries and rapes people" and said he planned to leave the UK to “join my people's cause". However, he could not be charged under the Terrorism Act because his profile was set to private, meaning he was jailed for just 18 weeks. Muslim convert Leroy McCarthy, who also uses the name Abdullah Mahmood, escaped being charged with terrorism offences Credit: Ben Lack The case led to calls for the law to be changed. David TC Davies, Conservative MP for Monmouthshire, a former serving police officer, said: "I think this worrying case highlights why the law needs to be changed to be further tightened up to prevent terrorist sympathisers and people encouraging violent acts from spreading their hate-filled messages whatever their Facebook settings are. “He clearly intended to encourage and incite acts and should face the full force of the law to do so." McCarthy, from Barrow in Furness, Cumbria, who also uses the name Abdullah Mahmood,  published a series of offensive, anti-semitic and homophobic posts on the social media site. In one post, he alluded to blowing up Furness General Hospital (FGH), and stated: "They wouldn't be able to evacuate all of FGH's patients in time before at least one of the three explosions." Another comment said "We are all martyrs of the Lord." Muslim convert Leroy McCarthy, who also uses the name Abdullah Mahmood, who has escaped being charged with terrorism offences Credit: Ben Lack McCarthy, who has 14 months left on licence after being released from custody in June after assaulting his partner, added: “14 months then it's passport and off to join my people's cause. I cannot wait to turn my back on the UK.” He also posted: “"A few months left and all my brothers are free. All them months of planning and it will be like a belated bonfire night for all those involved." When he was arrested last Saturday, he asked police from the North West Counter Terrorism Unit  what had happened to freedom of speech and said that  "if he was going to bomb somewhere it would be the Trafford Centre". However, McCarthy’s Facebook settings meant he avoided terrorism charges on a legal technicality. In order to charge an individual with encouraging terrorism, prosecutors must prove that the statement was intended to be seen by the public. McCarthy’s profile was set to private, meaning the posts could only be seen by his 340 friends, so he could only be charged with an offence under the Communications Act. He pleaded guilty to publishing a message that was “grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character” when he appeared this week at Furness Magistrates Court. Leroy McCarthy, who also uses the name Abdullah Mahmood, described murdered soldier Lee Rigby as a "white coward who invades countries and rapes people." Credit: Ben Lack Maureen Fawcett, defending, said: "He accepts the postings would have been grossly offensive and upsetting, but they were taken out of context. "He had fallen out with his sister who works at the hospital. "He has also never been abroad on a lads' holiday and he wanted to leave the UK to get his life back on track." Ms Fawcett said: "He has pleaded guilty today and the officers who have been with him actually thanked him for how open and frank he has been. "He reverted to become a Muslim when he was released from prison in 2015 and he is more peaceful since then. He had taken about 20 Valium on the day he posted these. "He was homeless and struggling to get by." McCarthy was also ordered to pay £85 costs and a victim surcharge of £115.

Two families hid in pools during the California fires, and their stories end in very different ways

Fri, 10/13/2017 - 11:22

Two families hid in pools during the California fires, and their stories end in very different waysThe wildfires ravaging California have been devastating this week, with over 30 people dead so far and countless of homes have been destroyed.  While countless of stories are coming from the Golden State, two families shared horrifying accounts of hiding in their respective pools for safety until the flames have passed.  SEE ALSO: California wildfire victims returning to their destroyed homes is absolutely heart-wrenching "In my naïveté, all night long,” Jan Pascoe told the LA Times, "I thought someone would come to get us."  The 65-year-old was trapped with her 70-year-old husband, John, for six hours, hiding in the pool after their attempt to evacuate was met with "a wall of flames" and were forced to turn back.  "I just kept going under,” she told the newspaper. "And I kept saying, ‘How long does it take for a house to burn down?’ We were freezing."  Once the fire passed, they managed to escape. “We held hands,” John explained, “and walked out.”  Despite the close call, the Pascoes both survived and were reunited with their children shortly after the fire had passed. All of their belongings were demolished in the fire. Unfortunately, the Berriz family had a very different ending to their story. Carmen and Armando Berriz were married for 55 years and according to SF Gate, the husband and wife clung to each other in a pool for hours as well, until Carmen stopped breathing and passed in Armando's arms. Their family had been in Santa Rosa on vacation, and after their son, Luis Ocon, noticed flames were encroaching their residence, everyone evacuated as quickly as possible.   Armando tripped on a tree which slowed him and his wife down considerably, so much so that their best option was to return to the home and find refuge in the pool. Armando was able to walk two miles to find a firefighter, and was reunited with his family.  “He’s had a rough time,” Luis Ocon told SF Gate, explaining that Armando was back in his home in Apple Valley. “But he’s unbelievably strong.” You can read more about the life of Carmen Berriz here, and you can learn more about how you can support victims of the fires here.  WATCH: The science behind the fast-moving wildfires that are devastating California

Japan's Kobe Steel scandal spreads, 500 firms affectedJapan's Kobe Steel admitted Friday that a snowballing falsified data scandal had affected around 500 customers, more than twice as many as initially thought. More than 30 foreign customers were affected, including Boeing, Airbus, General Motors, Tesla, German automaker Daimler and PSA of France, according to Japan's leading Nikkei business daily.
