By Sacramento Sheriff's Department An autopsy report released Friday by the Sacramento County Coroner found that physical exertion, drug intoxication and restraint by law enforcement were factors in the death of 36-year-old Marshall Miles, who died Nov. 1 after a prolonged struggle with deputies at the Sacramento County Main Jail. The coroner listed his official cause of death as "complications of cardiopulmonary arrest during restraint and mixed drug intoxication," noting the presence of narcotics in his system and blunt force injuries to his body. Miles was arrested Oct. 28 when several 911 callers reported him jumping on cars and acting erratically several days before in the area of Watt Avenue and A Street in North Highlands. On that Sunday night in late October, Miles was transported to the Sacramento County Main Jail where security camera and handheld camera footage showed him being restrained and struggling with officers during the booking process. Miles later became unresponsive on a cell floor less than a minute after deputies carried him there, according to video of the incident.

Soon after, doctors performed a CT scan that found "findings consistent with global hypoxic anoxic injury," a partial or total lack of oxygen to the brain, according previous reporting by The Sacramento Bee. IMG_20181030_120235_1911.jpg Marshall Miles, 36, died Nov. 1 becoming unresponsive while in jail custody days before. Berry Accius He died four days later after sheriff's officials granted a "compassionate release" to the comatose Miles, allowing him to die with his family and without authorities present. Miles' toxicology report, included in Friday's release, showed he had measurable amounts of narcotics in his system at the time of his death, including methamphetamine, amphetamine, cocaine, tobacco and marijuana. The autopsy report also detailed "clusters" of abrasions on Miles wrists and ankles, as well as hemorrhages. Several of his ribs were also fractured, which "may represent injury due to resuscitative efforts," the report said. The Sacramento County Coroner was not immediately available for comment. Berry Accius, a community activist, responded to the report: "That's why we continue to call out the excessive force used by law enforcement. (The autopsy report) is saying exactly what we said. If you didn't restrain him the way you restrained him and as he asked for help and assistance. You didn't treat him. You treated him after the fact, after he was dead. There has to be some liability for that." The Sacramento County Sheriff's Department released videos of the incident Dec. 3, its first ever release of footage in a critical incident. "We thoroughly outlined the incident and what took place in the video that we released to the public," Sgt. Shaun Hampton, spokesman for the sheriff's department, said Friday afternoon. "And that video contains all the footage related to that incident." The videos shows Miles speaking rapidly and breathing heavily throughout his encounter with law enforcement. When he arrives at the jail, Miles falls to his knees and appears to struggle with deputies, who then put restraints on Miles and carry him by his arms and legs, telling him to stop struggling. At one point, Miles yells, "I cannot breathe." At another, he shouts, "Give me some air." "You're breathing fine," a deputy replies as officers struggle to subdue him. The deputies ultimately hogtie his ankles and wrists together behind his back. Miles continues to struggle as deputies carry him during his booking. He is later carried to a cell where at least five deputies surround him as he is placed face down on the floor while they work to release him from the restraints. The deputies continue to give Miles orders not to struggle as they unlock his cuffs and then back out of the cell. Miles is seen motionless and silent before they release the restraints and as they leave the cell. The release of the videos came after months of pressure on Sheriff Scott Jones, who has previously refused to release footage of officer-involved shootings and other critical incidents, and who waged a successful campaign to shut down the county inspector general's efforts to provide oversight of such events. Narration by the Sheriff's Department in the video says that "seconds later" a sergeant noticed Miles appeared to have stopped breathing. The video appears to show a 39-second lapse of time from when the cell door originally was closed to when deputies rush back in to check on the inmate, who remained motionless, face down and silent during that time.

California prison rehab program fails to keep criminals from reoffending, audit finds BY JASON POHL A program called Tender Loving Canines is among the new and restored rehabilitation courses popping up in California state prisons since Gov. Jerry Brown began emphasizing programs that help inmates prepare to reenter society. By Hector Amezcua California prison inmates who went through certain behavioral therapy programs committed crimes at nearly the same rate after their release as those who did not participate, according to state investigators, raising questions about what recent ballooning costs have really achieved. In a report released Thursday, the state auditor said the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has not reevaluated the tools it uses to determine whether an inmate should be placed in cognitive behavioral therapy. It's an issue that investigators said was especially problematic and costly in the years since legal changes altered the make-up of prison populations across the state. Potentially inaccurate assessment tools "could result in placing inmates in the wrong programs or in no programs at all," Auditor Elaine Howle wrote in a letter to elected officials that accompanied the report. The corrections department has also failed to make sure some existing therapy programs are evidence-based, meaning a "significant" portion of inmates have not been getting treatments that have been proven to help. DIGITAL ACCESS FOR ONLY $0.99 For the most comprehensive local coverage, subscribe today. SUBSCRIBE NOW #READLOCAL "These results are serious enough to highlight an urgent need for Corrections to take a more active and meaningful role in ensuring that these programs are effective," Howle wrote, calling on the state Legislature to implement new oversight and monitoring. Part of the department's problem-filled rehabilitation efforts, Howle said, could be attributed to staffing shortages that plague programs in all California prisons. But that doesn't account for the lack of performance measures targeting rehab programs and recidivism that should show what success looks like. The report, which was requested by the Joint Legislative Audit Committee, calls into question how hundreds of millions of dollars in rehabilitation treatments have been spent, and whether the programs have achieved their goals since the state in 2011 adopted criminal justice reforms that were intended to downsize prison populations. Efforts under the umbrella of "rehabilitation" work with inmates to address issues running the gamut from drug abuse to job skills and even literacy. Since 2012, the corrections department has grown rehabilitation programming and training to each of its 36 prisons. Its annual budget for rehabilitation has also increased 27 percent in five years, from $234 million in 2013 to $298 million in 2018, according to the audit. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a specific part of rehab that can help people with mental illnesses or some form of self-destructive behavior. It comprises about a quarter of rehab programs within the department, yet Howle found that inmates who go through the program are about as likely to commit crimes and return to prison as inmates who do not participate in cognitive behavioral therapy. The department "has not undertaken sufficient effort to determine whether these programs are effective at reducing recidivism," the report reads. The at-times blistering critique of how the programming is handled comes while the department requests more money for cognitive behavioral therapy. The California State Prison, Sacramento recently submitted a request for new classrooms to support and expand cognitive behavioral health programming. Officials wrote in their proposal the estimated $6.4 million expansion was needed because they lacked proper space some programming has been held in a former dry-cleaning warehouse. San Quentin State Prison also filed a similar proposal recently to expand cognitive behavioral treatment space. That total estimated project cost is $7.1 million. Vicky Waters, a spokeswoman for CDCR, said rehabilitation remains a priority and the department has been working to bolster its tracking systems. CDCR took the findings "seriously" and was making some changes, she told The Bee Thursday, adding that the audit used some data collected before programming and monitoring efforts were expanded. "The department," she said, "is committed to building a strong model to measure our rehabilitative programs consistently and to continue enhancing public safety by ensuring our inmates have the skills and resources they need for a successful transition back to their communities."

How To Increase Your Chances Of An Orgasm Almost Every Time Getting off has cliterally never been easier. ByBrittany Nims 01/31/2019 04:36pm ET MILJKO VIA GETTY IMAGES Orgasms can make your body do a lot of surprising things, from sneezing and crying to feeling shaky and headache-y. That's in addition to all of the ways sex makes you happier and healthier, like by releasing stress and improving your mental health. Unfortunately, reaching the Big O doesn't come easy for everyone, especially when a partner is added to the mix. According to a 2015 Cosmopolitan survey of women ages 18 to 40, only 57 percent of women have an orgasm most or every time they have sex with a partner. When you're close to climax but can't, it's not quite as hopeless as it seems. In fact, there are plenty of sex accessories designed to increase stimulation and thus your chances of getting off. One item in particular has become a smash among women in search of bigger and better orgasms. LOVEHONEY Lovehoney's Bliss Orgasm Balm is a fast-acting orgasm booster that works by increasing female sensitivity using menthol and peppermint oil. It increases blood flow to the clitoris for increased sensation down there, while a gentle tingling feeling takes over to increase the intensity of climax. Sounds good, right? According to the brand, the menthol-infused balm "creates a thrilling throb for a truly explosive finish." The menthol and peppermint oils work together to stimulate nerve endings and increase blood flow to the clit to increase size and sensitivity. To use, just apply a small dab to the clitoris before hitting the sheets "for a delicious tingle." This not-so-secret orgasm balm has a 4.5-star rating on Lovehoney, with more than 250 reviews, and it's easy to see why: "It helps me climax extremely quickly and is very satisfying! Sometimes, if I'm distracted or feeling a bit self-conscious we grab for this tin and it helps to get me to that glorious orgasm quickly!" Lovehoney reviewer "I didn't expect much, but you only have to use a small amount and it definitely gives you the correct tingles that it aims to!! Fun to use on your own or with a partner!" Lovehoney reviewer "I have to say, that for a woman who has a hard time having an orgasm, this balm is very exciting to try.... I would recommend trying this problem if you do have difficulties getting off with your partner, or just want to try something new solo that will change your usual meh session to a wow session." Lovehoney reviewer LOVEHONEY Many reviewers noted the balm's cute heart-shape tin, which makes it easy to distinguish from lip balms and other bedroom essentials during a passionate fumble through the nightstand drawer. And, its practical 20 gram size makes it perfect for travel for on-the-go use, too. If you're not sold yet, it's also made with ingredients you know and can pronounce, like argan and olive oils, jojoba wax, shea butter, Vitamin E, and menthol and peppermint oils. Plus, it's only $15. Consider this our Valentine's Day gift to you. Ready for your best sex yet? Check out Loveho

FUCK KAMALA HARRIS AND FUCK ELITIST EGALITARIAN SF BAY AREA FELLATIO-ITES Kamala Harris laughed about jailing parents over truancy. But it's not funny Nathan Robinson Recently resurfaced videos of Harris defending her decision to lock up parents over truancy are disturbing Kamala Harris Democratic candidate for US President Kamala Harris, Oakland, USA - 27 Jan 2019 'Kamala Harris' record as a prosecutor has already been criticized heavily' For progressives, there are good reasons to be suspicious of the idea that former prosecutors make good politicians. The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world, and its criminal punishment system disproportionately punishes poor people and people of color. Prosecutors have a leading role in sustaining this injustice, in part because they tend to view prisons as solutions to social problems. That worldview is fully on display in recently unearthed video footage of Kamala Harris, defending her decision to criminally prosecute parents for their children's truancy. In the video, taken at the Commonwealth Club in 2010 when Harris was district attorney of San Francisco, Harris says that because "a child going without an education is tantamount to a crime", she decided to treat parents with absentee children as criminals. Embedded video Walker Bragman @WalkerBragman Kamala Harris at an event hosted by the Commonwealth Club in 2010, explaining her decision as San Francisco DA to get tough on truancy.

She smiles as she recalls how she instructed her subordinates to "look really mean" so that the mother would take the threat of jail seriously. In separate footage, Harris mocks those on the left who say things like "build schools, not jails" and "put more money into education, not prisons", suggesting they are naive sloganeers who do not understand crime prevention. Here we see the limits of the "prosecutorial mindset". Like the old slogan "when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail," when all you have is the ability to bring criminal charges, everything looks like a crime. Harris looked at the problem of perpetual truancy and believed she ought to start locking up parents. A humane progressive looks at the problem and asks: why do absences actually occur? Truancy occurs disproportionately among children whose parents are poor and less-educated, and among children who don't feel safe at school, who have to work or support their families, who have mental and physical health issues, and who are in unstable living situations. Given the social reality, the idea of fining or jailing parents over student absences is both cruel and unwise. It targets the poorest and most desperate parents, and it doesn't actually address the root causes. Even if it succeeds in reducing truancy rates, it inflicts yet more burdens on the most vulnerable people in society. But it's not even clear that it succeeds even by its own standard, with research suggesting that "although truancy proceedings can increase a child's school attendance in the short term, answering to a judge for school absence does not help students graduate from high school or avoid crime". What's striking about Harris's talk is that she doesn't seem at all aware of the socioeconomic implications of her policy. She admits that when she proposed jailing parents, members of her staff thought it was a terrible idea. But she laughs about it. In a 2009 op-ed about her efforts, Harris brags about the reductions in truancy rates she achieved through harsher "accountability" practices, but she doesn't discuss the potential downsides to a child's development of putting their parents in jail for up to a year, nor does she think much about who the likely targets of her policy would be. The human consequences here can be truly devastating. In 2014, a mother in Pennsylvania named Eileen DeNino died in jail, having been imprisoned for failing to pay fines for her children's truancy. According to the lawsuit filed by DeNino's family, jail staff knew DeNino had uncontrolled high blood pressure but denied her access to medication. The policy that Harris championed can literally kill mothers. Harris's record as a prosecutor has already been criticized heavily. As Lara Bazelon wrote in the New York Times, "when progressives urged her to embrace criminal justice reforms Ms Harris opposed them or stayed silent," and she "fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct". But the new videos show something even more disturbing: Harris has no awareness of what the criminal justice system truly means in the lives of the poor, and she believes that jail has an important place in education policy. She speaks proudly of using the "big stick" that prosecutors have, but doesn't realize that this "big stick" is used to beat people into submission through threatening them with being caged and even killed. It is an inhumane approach to social policy, and it's not the sort of thinking that any progressive who cares about criminal justice reform should be willing to stomach.

Two police officers from one of France's elite units have been sent to jail for seven years for the gang rape of a Canadian tourist.
The officers took Emily Spanton back to their headquarters at 36 Quai des Orfvres after an alcohol-fuelled evening at an Irish bar in April 2014.
Once in their fifth floor office, Spanton, 39, said their attitude completely changed. She said she was made to drink a glass of whisky before being forced to perform oral sex. She said she was raped several times afterwards.
Spanton, who admitted she was very drunk, left the building about 80 minutes later. She was in tears, had lost her tights and was carrying her shoes. She said she told an officer at the entrance to the police headquarters "they raped me" in French and in English.
The officers, Antoine Quirin, 40, and Nicolas Redouane, 49, both members of the prestigious anti-gang Brigade de Recherche et d'Intervention at the time, were not named during the three-week hearing under a French law protecting those working in sensitive police jobs.
