Striking Workers Question Whether to Trust Union Leadership After UAW Corruption Scandal

The strike against General Motors by the United Auto Workers is playing out amid a corruption scandal inside the UAW that has caused distrust of the union leadership among many rank-and-file members. On picket lines at plants across the country, many of the 49,000 workers have expressed doubts about whether UAW leaders are acting in their best interests in the dispute and in their handling of union money in general. Some have gone so far as to wonder whether the leadership took them out on strike to show that the union is working for them. “Where there’s big money, there’s dishonesty, unfortunately,” 41-year employee Brian Jaeger said outside a parts distribution center in Van Buren Township, Michigan. He said he is grateful for the life that the union has brought his family and he supports the strike, but he is also suspicious of the leadership. The walkout began Monday, with UAW members saying they want a bigger share of the billions that the No. 1 U.S. automaker has made off their hard work since it emerged from bankruptcy a decade ago with the help of…

911 Call From Man Drugged at Democratic Donor Ed Buck’s WeHo Home Key to Criminal Case: Sheriff

Detectives were able to build a case against Democratic donor Ed Buck on drug charges by following the 911 call made by a man who authorities allege was drugged at Buck’s West Hollywood home. Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said in an interview Wednesday that his department had been closely monitoring Buck after two men were found dead in his apartment, one in 2017 and the other earlier this year. Buck was arrested and charged this week with operating a drug house, with prosecutors calling him a violent sexual predator who preys on men struggling with addiction and homelessness. The latest man found in Buck’s home, identified in court papers as Joe Doe, went to the apartment on Sept. 4, where Buck “personally and deliberately” administered a large dose of methamphetamine, prosecutors said. Concerned he was overdosing, the man left Buck’s apartment to get medical help. Read the full story on LATimes.com. 

Richie Incognito is back, but other Raiders hurting as prep begins for Vikings

ALAMEDA — Richie Incognito practiced Wednesday for the first time since late August. He’ll start at left guard for the Raiders in their Week 3 road game against the Minnesota Vikings. As to who will join Incognito on the field, much was uncertain as the Raiders were assessing injuries to some key players. “Lots of guys are still coming back physically, but we’re optimistic,” Raiders coach Jon Gruden said. The Raiders addressed one of their concerns by trading a sixth-round draft pick to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for wide receiver Trevor Davis, who could replace the injured Dwayne Harris (ankle) as a return specialist. Also not practicing was right tackle Trent Brown (knee) and guard Gabe Jackson (knee). Those who were limited in practice were running back Josh Jacobs (hip), linebacker Vontaze Burfict (shoulder-knee), wide receiver Tyrell Williams (hip), cornerback Gareon Conley (neck), defensive tackle Corey Liuget (knee), wide receiver J.J. Nelson (ankle) and safety Curtis Riley (hip). The Raiders backed off in practice to accommodate injured players, and there’s no way to know which players could conceivably miss the Minnesota game.

Pastafarian leads opening prayer at Alaska meeting

Associated Press SOLDOTNA, Alaska — A pastor wearing a colander on his head offered the opening prayer on behalf of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster to open a local government meeting in Alaska, the latest blessing from a nontraditional church since a court ruling. Barrett Fletcher, the Pastafarian pastor, noted the duties performed by the members of the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly in his Tuesday message, adding a few of them “seem to feel they can’t do the work without being overseen by a higher authority,” Kenai radio station KSRM reported Wednesday. “So, I’m called to invoke the power of the true inebriated creator of the universe, the drunken tolerator (sic) of the all lesser and more recent gods, and maintainer of gravity here on earth. May the great Flying Spaghetti Monster rouse himself from his stupor and let his noodly appendages ground each assembly member in their seats,” Fletcher said. The only people who stood for the invocation were those without seats in the standing-room-only assembly hall in Soldotna, which is about 75 miles south of Anchorage. One man turned his back…

2 Young Girls Report Being Harassed By Suspect On Their Way To And From School

ALISO VIEJO (CBSLA)  —  Two young girls — one 12 and the other 16 — told authorities that a man touched them both in separate incidents in Aliso Viejo yesterday and last week. CBS2/KCAL9’s Michele Gile says the suspect is at large. The alleged 12-year-old victim — headed to Aliso Viejo Middle School last week — helped an Orange County Sheriff’s artist come up with a sketch of the suspect. The sketch is similar to one drawn yesterday by another girl — this one 16 and headed home from Aliso Niguel High. Gile says investigators are trying to determine if the suspect is the same in both incidents. The sketches are similar as are the details in both cases. The 12-year-old said the man accosted her near the middle school on Aliso Creek Road last Thursday. She said the man touched her but she yelled at him and got away. The 16-year-old said the suspect accosted her on a trail near the high school around 4 p.m. She said the man pulled on her skirt. Sheriff’s deputies said she was able to slap his hand…

Positive police approach is changing perceptions

An Op-Ed by John Valdivia – Mayor, City of San Bernardino Think about a situation where you might encounter a law enforcement officer. For most people, the situation they imagine is negative. In San Bernardino, local police are changing that perception while making our community a safer environment to live and do business. We’ve restructured the force, and these efforts are already paying positive dividends for San Bernardino. The City has partnered with the San Bernardino Police Officers Association to bring a new playground to Littlefield/Schultis Park, and we are encouraging members of the community to get involved to make this a reality, including taking part in the bbq fundraiser hosted by the SBPOA coming up September 26th to support the project. We want people in San Bernardino to have opportunities to interact with law enforcement in positive settings. SBPD pop up tents are appearing regularly at spots throughout San Bernardino and mounted patrols are distributing resources to our neighbors on horseback. Community members are invited to attend regular “Coffee with a Cop” meetings to share their concerns or just chat. This summer, San Bernardino…
