Athletes team up to supply funeral for woman killed at home by police

first_imgeyfoto/iStock(FORT WORTH, Texas) — Sacramento Kings star Harrison Barnes and Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Malik Jackson joined forces this week to help supply funeral services for Atatiana Jefferson, a black woman who was fatally shot by a white police officer in her Texas home last week.Jefferson, 28, was playing video games with her 8-year-old nephew late Saturday night when she was fatally shot by a Fort Worth police officer who was conducting a wellness check.The officer, 34-year-old Aaron Dean, did not identify himself as an officer before he fired into the woman’s bedroom window, sparking national outrage and claims of excessive policing.Dean resigned and was charged Monday with murder. He has since been released on $200,000 bond.Barnes said he hadn’t spoken with Jefferson’s family since the “tragic situation,” but he felt like he had to do something to help.“My wife and I wanted to do something for that family,” Barnes told reporters Thursday. “No one should be killed during a wellness check. But the biggest thing is anytime someone has to go through that, the last thing you want to have to worry about is trying to come up with the money for a funeral.”“It was unfortunate. It should never have happened. You think of wellness check not being something that’s going to be fatal. So you want justice for the family. But at the same time, your heart goes out to the family that has to deal with that,” he added.Jefferson’s family’s attorney Lee Merritt told Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA-TV that Barnes paid half the service costs and Jackson paid the remainder.Bishop T.D. Jakes is scheduled to deliver the eulogy and the Rev. Al Sharpton is expected to offer special remarks at the funeral service, which will be open to the public.Jefferson’s viewing with be held on Friday at 7 p.m. and the funeral is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. Saturday.Both services will be held at The Potter’s House in Dallas.Police said Jefferson, who had a license to carry, reached for her gun when she heard noises in her backyard and went to the window to investigate. Body camera footage released by the police department shows Dean 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.“I realize that no action we take can replace the loss suffered here. I’m deeply sorry for what occurred,” Fort Worth Police Chief Ed Kraus said during a news conference earlier this week.“Human life is a precious thing, and should not have been taken from Ms. Jefferson,” Kraus said. “This incident has eroded the trust that we have built with our community and we must now work even harder to ensure that trust is restored.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

On Saturday night, they filled the stadium and then the field moments after No. 23 upsetting No. 3 Ole Miss, 10-7, in front of 102,321 – the largest crowd in LSU history and one of the most rocking ever as well.A collage of purple and gold rushed the field for the first time since the early 2000s and swarmed from the north end zone to the 50-yard line like a Jazz Fest crowd for Springsteen. The goal post was spared, but the base was engulfed by humanity. Somewhere in the middle of all that stood LSU coach Les Miles.“I had three big policemen that got me through the crowd,” he said in the press conference area outside the locker room. “How did you guys get here. That was a great game. Wow. One thing about these Tigers. This team wanted to make this night special, and they did. Wasn’t that crowd wonderful?”“Please clear the field,” Tiger Stadium public address announcer Dan Borne said numerous times to no avail 15 minutes after the game ended.Tiger players struggled to get to the locker room as much as both teams struggled to score.LSU (7-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) scored its only touchdown of the game and took its first lead with 5:07 to play in the fourth quarter on a 3-yard, play action pass from quarterback Anthony Jennings to wide open tight end Logan Stokes for a 10-7 advantage.The score climaxed a mammoth, 95-yard drive in 13 plays that took up 5:59. Tailback Leonard Fournette ran violently throughout the drive, ripping his facemask in the process, and finished with a game-high 113 yards on 23 carries.But LSU’s defense won it as it limited Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace to 14-of-33 passing for 176 yards, and intercepted him for the first time through five SEC games.Overtime looked apparent, though, as Ole Miss reached the LSU 25-yard line with nine seconds to play behind Wallace’s passes and an interference call against safety Jalen Mills. A 42-yard field goal would have tied it 10-10, but Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze mismanaged the clock this time as his sideline drew a delay of game penalty to push the Rebels back five yards before Gary Wunderlich could kick.After an LSU timeout, Ole Miss came out with Wallace instead of kicker Wunderlich, surprising LSU as it sent its regular defenders scrambling to the field. Wallace took the snap quickly, rolled to his left and threw to the end zone for wide receiver Cody Core. LSU safety Ronald Martin caught it at the 2-yard line with two seconds left. Jennings took the final snap, it was over, and the field was soon covered.LSU outgained Ole Miss 406 yards to 313, including 264 on the ground to 137. Tailback Terrence Magee added 74 yards on 12 carries, and Kenny Hilliard gained 63 on 12 rushes. Jennings finished 8 of 16 for 142 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions, but he again came through in the fourth quarter with 2-of-3 passing for 23 yards and the touchdown.It could have been much easier for the Tigers, who came within a few yards of taking a 10-0 lead after their first two possessions of the game. They dominated Ole Miss (7-1, 4-1 SEC) on the ground and through the air, covering 133 yards on 17 plays and holding the ball for more than half the first quarter.But Colby Delahoussaye missed a 28-yard field goal by a few yards left after the first drive of 63 yards in 11 plays, and Fournette fumbled on the 1-yard line on LSU’s second drive that amassed 70 yards in six plays. Jennings went 3-of-3 for 83 yards on the two drives with a 40-yard completion to Fournette over the middle on the second drive to Rebels’ 20-yard line.Fournette gained 30 yards on six rushes over the two drives before the fumble after a hit by middle linebacker Deterrian Shackelford. Safety Cody Prewitt recovered in the end zone for a touchback, and LSU had nothing to show for some of its most balanced offense in three SEC West games this season.The Rebels took the 7-0 lead LSU could not grasp late in the first quarter with a 80-yard drive in six plays following the fumble. Wallace found wide receiver Jaylen Walton for an apparent 80-yard touchdown on the second play of the possession, but he stepped out of bounds at the LSU 37. Not to worry, Wallace found wide receiver Laquon Treadwell for 27 yards to the LSU 10 on the next play. The Tigers appeared to have forced a field goal after false start on the Rebels, but on third-and-15 Wallace hit wide receiver Cody Core for the touchdown.The Tigers started moving with the ensuing kickoff as Magee replaced Fournette after the fumble. Magee gained 12 yards on three carries and had popped off a 10-yard gain to the Rebels’ 46-yard line, but ballhawk Prewitt stripped the ball out and Ole Miss recovered at its 48.LSU finally got on the board with 2:47 to go in the second quarter on a 21-yard field goal by Delahoussaye to cut Ole Miss’ lead to 7-3 after the Tigers drove 90 yards, eating up a whopping 9:13. The Tigers dominated the first half in time of possession by 20:03 to 9:57, but had very little to show for it because of the two fumbles.It stayed, 7-3, until the fourth quarter.The field was finally cleared some 30 minutes after the game.“That was quite a crowd,” Miles said. “It was a great game.” Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

Oscar-nominated documentaries capture history

first_imgAJ Schnack, founder of the Cinema Eye Honors for nonfiction filmmaking where both of these movies were recent winners — “5 Broken Cameras” took the top prize, while “Plague” won for its editing — views this approach as an extension of the kind of long-form investigative journalism that television networks don’t do as much of anymore. By comparison, he said, a provocateur like Michael Moore is tantamount to an opinion page writer. “It was a true witness-bearing,” said France, who spent two years cutting the film. “You also see in those scenes how comfortable people were on camera because the cameras were always present, which was only made possible by a true revolution in home video. They were not these tiny, handheld things but for the first time it was affordable to ordinary people to record things in that way. The camcorder came out in 1982, you had HIV in 1981 and by 1987 those tools were being used broadly.” “Plague” is a collection of archival footage from the late 1980s and early ’90s, as members of the New York-based AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP) fought to find a cure for the disease as it quickly spread and claimed millions of lives. Director David France, who was in the middle of many of these boisterous planning meetings and theatrical demonstrations, culled through thousands of hours of footage from about two dozen different sources. They’re very different films from very different directors on very different topics. “5 Broken Cameras” is a collaboration between Palestinian farmer Emad Burnat and Israeli director Guy Davidi featuring years of footage Burnat shot in his occupied village of Bil’in, a place that became a sort of symbol for nonviolent resistance. Each of the five cameras was destroyed in the midst of protests or gunfire; one still has a bullet lodged in the lens. But it also includes daily events in the life of this husband and father of four; he actually bought the first camera in 2005 for the reason so many parents do, to record the first smiles and steps of his youngest son, Gibreel.

(AP Photo/Kino Lorber, Inc.)LOS ANGELES  — The Oscar-nominated features “5 Broken Cameras” and “How to Survive a Plague” represent documentaries in the truest, purest form of the word: They capture a spark, a moment in history, and they make us feel as if we were there, too. Both films were shot by regular people who happened to be witnessing an uprising. They’re by amateur photographers who had the foresight to record everything — long before such a practice became the norm with the advent of the iPhone and YouTube — from the mundane moments of their daily lives to scenes of violence, upheaval, death and eventually some sort of victory. Davidi spent a year and a half editing from 900 hours of footage that Burnat and a few others had shot before bringing in French editor Veronique Lagoarde-Segot to help fine-tune the narrative. He said the naturalistic, intimate look of “5 Broken Cameras” isn’t as effortless as it may appear. “What we were reaching for in ‘How to Survive a Plague’ was to allow somebody who had no knowledge of this time and this movement to have the experience we had when it was happening, to really not know the outcome, to not know from day to day and scene to scene who was going to live and who was not going to live,” France said. “Would we get there in time? We realized in the course of editing it that this was a real-life medical thriller.” As in “5 Broken Cameras,” France wanted to tell a story that was free of partisanship. Burnat of “5 Broken Cameras” said he’d always intended to make a movie, but initially figured it would be something private to show to family and friends. He felt it was his responsibility to depict the fight for territory through his own eyes. The people whose video appears in “How to Survive a Plague” similarly wanted to share their story with the world. France said the photographers had a number of motivations, from filling in the gaps of traditional media reporting to documenting when police were excessively rough during demonstrations to capturing quiet moments with loved ones before they died. The result: France often had the benefit of coverage of the same event from several different angles. “People have a lot of appreciation for a film that looks like it was heavily thought, it was planned, it looks spectacular with nice, big cameras, and in our film we actually try to make it simple,” he said. That included ruining some of the footage to make it appear even more authentically raw. Burnat sought out Davidi, who shaped the film and wrote the narration, because he knew him as an Israeli peace activist. Together, the two aimed to craft a documentary with no political slant or judgment. “Many films were made about Palestine and the subject but the story was being told by people who live outside. They didn’t feel this feeling, this relation between the person and the land and how to live, how to survive in this situation under occupation,” Burnat said. He watched his brothers get arrested and friends get shot by Israeli military, and even though he knew it was dangerous to venture into it all with his camera, “this is the situation, this is our life, our daily life,” Burnat said. “At the same time, I was thinking for my kids, the future of my kids, to make this for them. My goal is to show the world and to spread the film and to change people, to change the situation. So this was important for me.” “(Davidi) has the task of taking not only footage from his narrator/co-director/subject but also footage that other people shot at that time and still making it feel like a first-person account. I think that’s one of the things that’s a success in that film, is that it feels constantly like it’s Emad’s voice and camera but it’s the culmination of a bunch of different people shooting,” said Schnack, whose films include “Kurt Cobain About a Son.” “‘How to Survive a Plague’ is somewhat similar in that he’s taking the video from a number of sources at the time and trying to craft a narrative that feels fairly singular — that’s why the editor remains the most important person in the documentary in some ways. “In the case of both films,” he added, “both become successful if they tell you something new about something you think you know.”last_img read more
