  1. A California man has been arrested after attacking a crime prevention robot in a car park, police say. The Knightscope machine was on patrol outside the Silicon Valley company that created it when the alleged attacker approached, witnesses say. The 300lb (136kg) robot raised the alarm after it was allegedly knocked over by 41-year-old Jason Sylvain. He said he was an engineer who wanted to "test" the machine, said a Knightscope representative. Mr Sylvain has been charged with public intoxication in the 19 April incident. The robot suffered a few scratches, but has "recuperated" and is back on patrol, said Knightscope. The latest on robots Scary robots that want to be useful The robot that wants to go to university "It did what it was designed to do," said company spokesman Stacy Dean Stephens. Alarms on the 5ft (150cm) tall robot, which is known as K5, sounded after it was knocked down, said Knightscope. A company employee went outside to stall the man until Mountain View police could arrive. A police spokeswoman said they were dispatched to the car park after a report of a prowler. They said Mr Sylvain "appeared confused, had red, glassy eyes and a strong odour of alcohol emitted from him". One local man told ABC News it was not a fair fight. "I think this is a pretty pathetic incident because it shows how spineless the drunk guys in Silicon Valley really are because they attack a victim who doesn't even have any arms," said Eamonn Callon. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-39725535

  3. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3700306/British-airman-attacked-knife-wielding-assailants-outside-RAF-base-raids-launched-against-ISIS-possible-terror-attack.html Police hunt two knifemen who attacked British airman outside RAF base that is home to Tornado jets bombing ISIS 'in possible terror attack' Police would not comment on whether the incident was terror related but a source told the Sun that there was a 'strong possibility' this was a terror attack, adding 'this could've been a lot more serious'. Looks like the gate has been opened and these attacks are becoming more sporadic. Lets see if a description is released any time soon.
  4. Police refuse to arrest sex attacker despite victim identifying him on bus Police issued this picture as part of their appeal but nobody came forward (Picture: Met Police) Two police officers have been given final warnings after they refused to arrest an alleged sex attacker. The victim of the assault approached the two officers on the 134 bus in Camden after she had been targeted on a bus. But they told her they could not arrest the man until she had reported him at a police station. The victim, 36, told the Evening Standard that she got up to greet a friend when he lunged at her on the bus last December. She said: ‘I pushed him away and asked, “What are you doing?” I was shocked but seconds later two female police officers boarded the bus. ‘I told them what had happened. I pointed at the man, saying that was who had assaulted me, and I said the attack was witnessed by my friend. ‘They told me they could not deal with the crime because I had to report it at a police station. At the time I did not question it because you believe in the police and what they say. ‘Only later when I walked to Kentish Town police station and said, “I have just been sexually assaulted”, I thought it was not right.’ Police issued the above picture but nobody came forward and the inquiry was closed. MORE: Man released from prison by accident taunts police Scotland Yard confirmed two officers were found guilty at a misconduct hearing after it found they had ‘breached the standards of professional behaviour for duties and responsibilities’. Camden borough commander Richard Tucker said: ‘These officers let down the victim and both received a final written warning — the most severe sanction available to the local panel.’ Read more: http://metro.co.uk/2015/07/23/police-refuse-to-arrest-sex-attacker-despite-victim-identifying-him-on-bus-5309712/#ixzz3hfxolSbO
  5. Brick thrown from Coventry bridge at police car The brick, described as a coping stone, was deliberately thrown at the police car, West Midlands Police said A brick has been thrown from a bridge, injuring two police officers as it smashed through their patrol car's windscreen. The officers were driving along the Coventry's ring road on their way to an emergency call when the coping stone was thrown late on Sunday. Both policemen were taken to hospital and treated for facial injuries. A West Midlands Police spokesman said he believed the car had been targeted deliberately, The officers, aged 49 and 27, have been discharged from hospital and are spending time at home, West Midlands Police said. Det Insp Stuart Bell said: "Not only did the mindless action of these people cause police officers having to spend a night in hospital , it also meant that someone who desperately needed our help and had dialled 999 was left vulnerable." Anyone with information is asked to contact police. Source: http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-coventry-warwickshire-31489296
  6. London's policing supremo is demanding an extra £20 million of police counter-terror funding to keep the public safe after a rift with the Government over “penny-pinching” in the wake of the Paris attacks. Deputy Mayor Stephen Greenhalgh said that the money currently earmarked for counter-terrorism policing was “not enough” to cope with the increasing threat posed by returnees from the Syria conflict and other extremists. He said that at least £20 million more was needed instead and that it was a “scandal” that the Home Office was planning to retain a large chunk of the £130 million of additional terror funding promised by David Cameron. He warned that the police’s ability to protect the public would be weakened without the extra cash. Mr Greenhalgh’s criticism follows a warning by the Britain’s top counter-terrorism officer, Met Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley, that police and Jewish residents could be at increased risk of attack by Islamist extremists. The police presence in Jewish areas of London has been stepped up as a result. Officers will also patrol in pairs, rather than alone, in some parts of the city. Mr Greenhalgh said that the Home Office was gaining £35 million agencies of the money promised by Mr Cameron, but that only £5 million of that had initially been earmarked for police. That sum had now been raised to around £9.4 million after protests from him and Boris Johnson. But the rest of the money was being retained in Whitehall to fund the Home Office’s “Prevent” counter-radicalisation programme and other Government work. The Deputy Mayor said that meant the money going to the Met was inadequate and added: “I think that’s a scandal. We are having an arrest nearly every day, 50 per cent of the undercover counter-terrorism work is here in London and half of the people returning from Syria are in London so there is a huge volume of activity that needs to be carried out. The police’s ability to keep us safe will be harmed if they are not getting the money to do the job. The pie doesn’t seem to have been split fairly and the cops are unhappy about it.” Mr Greenhalgh also expressed concern that an attack would have a devastating effect on tourism. He said that was the capital’s third largest source of revenue. “We make more than £11 billion a year from our tourist industry. That is massive. I went to New York two months after 9/11 and the plane was empty. We can’t afford to be penny wise and pound foolish about this when billions would be lost if we had a terrorist outrage.” The Home Office said that it did not discuss precise funding levels and that a final decision on the allocation of the £130 million had not yet been taken. A spokesman said: “While all public services must constrain their spending, we have protected funding for counter-terrorism policing.” The total budget for counter-terrorism policing for the financial years 2014/15 and 2015/16 is £564.3 million. http://www.standard.co.uk/news/london/london-needs-extra-20m-to-fight-parisstyle-terror-attack-9997940.html
