Happy Friday friends!  We made it through the end of another week!  What does everyone have planned for the weekend?  Eric and I were going to catch a movie until we realized there isn’t really anything out that we want to see.  So instead, we are going to do some Christmas shopping and probably enjoy […]

The ACLU’s lawsuit over the Boston police gang database is a slap in the face to prosecutors and cops who responded when the civil rights group urged them to get “smart on crime,” former Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley says. “My frustration with the ACLU is they urged prosecutors and police to be more surgical and when we do it with the gang database, we get criticized,” Conley, now an attorney with Mintz Levin, told the Herald yesterday. “The intelligence we get is very professional.” The ACLU is suing the city — including the Boston Regional Intelligence Center that generates the gang intel — over what they say is a system programmed to deport young Central American men. Police Commissioner William G. Gross slammed the ACLU’s legal challenge last week in a private Facebook post, calling them “paper warriors” who are oblivious to gang “atrocities.” Conley defended Gross, saying BRIC is keeping Boston safe. “The BRIC helped drive our decision making,” said the ex-DA. “The ACLU and others urged us to be smart on crime and we did. We got better and better.” He said the BRIC gang data shows that “300 to 400 impact players” are behind most of the crime in the city. Conley said that “meticulousness” by the intelligence officers has repeatedly won the day in court. “It was extremely helpful on who should be prosecuted for the good of our city and who should get a second or third chance,” Conley said. “The BRIC has been instrumental in driving down crime.” The ACLU did not respond to requests for comment yesterday. The group’s controversial lawsuit was filed Nov. 15 in Suffolk Superior Court. This week, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Boston cited BRIC in the indictment of more than a half dozen key players in the brutal MS-13 gang. That gang, also known as “La Mara Salvatrucha,” terrorized teens and rival gang members in East Boston, Chelsea, Lynn, Revere, Somerville and Everett. The feds cited BRIC’s work in a motion to keep six suspected MS-13 members locked up through their trial for the murder of a teen in Lynn this summer.  One of those suspects, Henri Salvador Gutierrez, 19, of Somerville, dodged deportation a month before the Lynn killing — but was identified by BRIC as an illegal immigrant and MS-13 member. That suspect, nicknamed “Perverso” by his gang, was also taped admitting he was a member of the gang and that he was a “homeboy” who had committed murder, federal prosecutors state. “It’s not easy to get on that gang database,” Conley said, adding those gang suspect who are included are “driving all the crime.”

The warming Arctic is the stage of an ongoing maritime, geopolitical and geo-economic revolution.

For example, end of August 2018, the Danish Maersk Company, one of the major ship owners in the world and the world’s largest container shipping company by both fleet size and cargo capacity, sent a first container ship using this route, in order to test its commercial use. The ship went from Vladivostok to Saint Petersburg, through the Bering Strait, following the northern coast of Siberia (Tom Embury-Morris, “Container Ship Crosses Arctic Route for First Time in History Due to Melting Sea Ice”, The Independent, 18 September, 2018).

Since 2013, each year, the number the number of Chinese cargo convoys using the Russian Northern Sea Route, also known as the North East passage, increases thanks to the rapid warming of the region, which transforms
