Texas school administrator seems to have thrown a 14-year-old boy in the wall

A mother who was concerned released surveillance video that shows a school administrator throwing a boy, 14 years old, into a wall at Round Rock High School. The incident occurred at GOALS Learning Center on April 29, a school for students with a primary disorder of emotional disturbance. Tatiana Alfano, the mother, said that she received an email and a call from the school stating that her son was defiant and had struck his head when he fell. Quintin Proctor, Quintin’s son, insisted that Quintin was actually thrown into a wall by the school administrator. His mother was shocked to receive surveillance video from the school two week later.
Just before he tried to leave, the student was standing in a corridor.

Fox 7 Austin reported that Proctor had been brought to the “cool down area” after yelling at his teachers. Proctor tried to follow the two teachers as they left. The administrator grabbed Proctor and threw him against the wall.

High ranking US officials meet with Taliban for the first time since July, when al Qaeda’s leader was killed by the US

Two officials familiar with the talks stated that top officials from the Biden administration met with the Taliban in person on Saturday, the first meeting since al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri was shot to death in Kabul in late Jul.

The administration sent the CIA’s deputy Director and the top State Department official responsible in Afghanistan to Doha, Qatar, for talks with the Taliban delegation. This included their head of intelligence Abdul Haq Wasiq.

Zawahiri was killed during a strike by the US. The US then accused the Taliban of a “clear violation” of the Doha Agreement, “brokered in part by the Trump administration. This agreement stated that the Taliban would not harbor terrorists if the US forces withdraw from Afghanistan, which they did in august 2021.

After a US drone shot down fatal Hellfire missiles at Zawahiri in Afghanistan, American officials accused the Taliban leaders of the Haqqani network knowing Zawahiri was missing. The Taliban reacted angrily to the incident.

The US has maintained its engagement with the Taliban since then, including negotiating Mark Frerichs’ release. However, senior officials hadn’t met face-toface since Zawahiri’s death on July 31.

The presence of CIA Deputy Director David Cohen, and the Taliban’s Wasiq, at Saturday’s meeting indicates a focus on counterterrorism. Last month, the White House called cooperation with Taliban on counterterrorism “a work-in-progress.”

Cohen was accompanied by Tom West, the Special Representative for Afghanistan at the State Department. West has been a leader in engagement with the Taliban ever since the US withdrawal last January.

Frerichs was freed almost three weeks ago, after spending more than two years in captivity. With the help of Qatar, Frerichs was also released. According to administration officials, they claimed that they spent months negotiating with Taliban leaders for Frerichs’ release and warned them about Frerichs’ death after the strike. They stated that the best way to restore trust would be to release him.

According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, at least one other American, Ivor Shearer (a filmmaker) is currently being held in Taliban custody. He was arrested alongside Faizullah Faizbakhsh, his Afghan producer. They were filming in the same area Zawahiri was murdered. Shearer was reportedly summoned by the Taliban several times for questioning prior to his detention.

The State Department and the CIA declined to comment.

The Taliban maintains ties to al Qaeda but they are now facing an insurgency by the Islamic State offshoot known ISIS-K. This group has repeatedly targeted Afghanistan’s Hazara ethnic minority. A suicide attack at an education center in Kabul’s predominantly Hazara neighborhood resulted in the deaths of at least 25 people, mostly young women. No one claimed immediate responsibility.

Beth Sanner, a former Deputy director of National Intelligence, who led Afghanistan analysis at CIA, says that “the Taliban are struggling to stop ISIS-K attacks,” Sanner is also a CNN contributor.

Sanner stated that Cohen is likely to send a clear message that we will continue to strike as we did against Zawahiri if we discover that al Qaeda members are supporting operations that threaten the US and its allies. “ISIS-K is now a threat to the Taliban and to sectarian security. However, there is some concern that ISIS -K could eventually turn its sights to external plotting if they are unable to contain them.”

The Biden administration announced last month that it had established a $3.5 billion “Afghan Fund” to freeze Afghan money in order to promote economic stability. Two officials said to CNN that the US doesn’t believe there is an institution that can guarantee the funds will be used to benefit Afghans.

Instead, it will be managed by an outside organization, independent from the Taliban and the central bank.

In their discussions with the Taliban, administration officials have repeatedly brought up the issue of women and girls. Last month, the United Nations’ rapporteur on human rights in Afghanistan called the “staggering” decline of Afghan women and girls in society “staggering.”

Bennett stated that “in no other country has women and girls so quickly disappeared from all spheres in public life.” “Despite this, women’s rights and accountability for human rights are being maintained by girls and women.”

This report was contributed by Jennifer Hansler and Kylie Atwood, CNN.

Report says that abuse and sexual misconduct are common in American women’s soccer.

Independent investigation found widespread misconduct and abuse in professional soccer for women in the United States.

The report, which was led by Sally Q. Yates, former acting attorney general, was released Monday. It was based upon more than 200 interviews. It reveals that the National Women’s Soccer League, (NWSL), under the US Soccer Federation (USSF), failed to provide a safe environment.

The report states that “our investigation revealed a league (NWSL), in which abuse and misconduct — verbal, emotional, and sexual misconduct — had become systematic, spanning multiple coaches and victims.” The NWSL abuse is rooted in a deeper culture of women’s soccer that began in youth leagues. This culture normalizes verbally abusive coaching, blurring the boundaries between players and coaches.

The report comes one year after the 12-team NWSL was in chaos following a report from The Athletic describing allegations of sexual coercion, misconduct and abuse against Paul Riley. Riley coached three NWSL teams over eight seasons. The North Carolina Courage fired him after citing players who claimed that Riley used his power and influence to sexually harass players for years and, in one instance, coerced a player into having sex.

Riley denied the allegations in the report. CNN was unable to reach Riley for comment.

In the wake of the report, Lisa Baird, the then-NWSL commissioner, resigned. The league also cancelled all scheduled matches for that weekend. The Yates report states that half of the league’s teams had left their coaches by the end of the year due to player complaints.

FIFA believes recent cases of abuse in women’s soccer are only the tip of the iceberg

Monday’s report reveals that sexual misconduct and abuse were far more widespread than one incident or coach.

The report states that “in well over 200 interviews, there were many reports of relentless, degrading tirades; manipulations that were about power, and not improving performance; as well as retaliation against anyone who tried to come forward.” “Even more troubling were the stories about sexual misconduct. Players described a pattern that included sexually charged comments and unwanted sexual advances, sexual touching, and coercive intercourse.

Monday’s league statement stated that it would review the findings.

“We recognize the anxiety, mental strain that these pending investigation have caused, and the trauma that many — including staff — are having relive,” the league stated in a statement.

The NWSL stated that the league is currently conducting its own investigation with the players’ union.

Houston Dash suspends James Clarkson, head coach, amid a league-wide investigation into allegations of misconduct

Yates’ report includes first-hand accounts of players who have described abuses by head coaches and team management.

One case alleged that a head coach asked a player to watch match footage 1-on-1 at his home only to show pornography. According to the report, the same manager sexually coerced the player and “grabbed her in public, but not out of sight.”

The report contains multiple allegations and findings regarding sexual harassment and misconduct by head coach.

The report notes that abusive coaches were able move from one team to the next despite being accused by the league and the Federation. This was because they feared that the organizations might be named in any possible defamation or employment lawsuits.

Yates recommends that a public “list” of individuals be disciplined, suspended or banned by USSF, a USSF Organization member, or SafeSport.

The US Center for SafeSport was authorized by Congress to address sexual, emotional, and physical abuse in Olympic sports.

Cindy Parlow Cone, US Soccer President, stated that the report was very emotional and that she is having trouble understanding it all. It will take time to read the report and reflect on the actions and inactions. Then, it will take time to decide what discipline needs to be taken.

She stated earlier that the US Soccer Federation, the national governing body of soccer, was “fully committed to doing all it can to ensure that all soccer players, at all levels, have a safe place to learn, grow, and compete.”

The NWSL players’ association praised players who cooperated in the investigation and spoke out about misconduct and abuse.

“As difficult as the report is to read, it has been more painful for Players, known and unknown, to live it.” The association expressed gratitude for their efforts to find the truth to support our work to transform NWSL.

“These stories have inspired me to take collective action to make a difference. The association stated that players are reclaiming the League as well as the sport by sharing their stories.

US Soccer began the investigation one year ago when it hired Yates and King and Spalding to review the allegations, conduct interviews and suggest solutions. According to the federation, Yates and the firm had full access and autonomy in order for them to complete an independent report.

US Soccer stated that the board of directors of the Federation had voted to release Monday’s full report while maintaining “victim confidentiality and privacy.”
