Tullytown Officers Cleared; Charges Coming Poconos Hazing; Council Passes Fines for Grafitti

Today, the Bucks County District Attorney said that the officers who tasered a teenage shoplifting suspect in Tullytown will not be charged with police misconduct. The incident happened last month at the local Walmart. The teen and an accomplice were in custody and handcuffed when the boy took off on foot. The officer pursued and deployed his Taser to stop him from running across Route 13 while handcuffed. The minor fell face first onto the sidewalk and that's how he sustained his injuries. The teen's mother disputes that account and claims excessive force was used. The District Attorney said today that there is no evidence of misconduct. Witnesses at the scene all corroborate the officer's account and the boy has never claimed he was assaulted. He still faces charges of shoplifting and escape in juvenile court.

Prosecutors in the Poconos will file charges in the death of a New York City college student who died during a fraternity ritual. 19-year-old Chun "Michael" Deng died on Monday, a day after his friends brought him to the hospital. He was a freshman at Baruch College located in Manhattan. Deng was pledging the Pi Delta Psi fraternity with three others. Around 20 members of the fraternity, described as an Asian-American cultural organization, had rented a house in the Poconos for the weekend. Deng suffered a major brain trauma after participating in a hazing ritual known as 'the gauntlet.' He had to don a blindfold and wear a weighted bag and run the gauntlet while being repeatedly pushed, shoved and knocked down. The practice is technically “prohibited” by fraternity rules. Monroe County District Attorney David Christine won't decide on which charges to file until the investigation has been completed.

Philadelphia City Council passed a law that makes property owners responsible for cleaning up the graffiti on their surfaces. If a city inspector sees graffiti on your property, they will give you 10 days to clean it up, otherwise there will be a fine of at least $100. Councilman Bobby Henon wrote the bill. He says it's about restoring confidence in communities. Business owners are worried about getting hit with fines if they don't deal with graffiti. The bill just needs a signature from Mayor Nutter and it will go into effect immediately.
