Columbus police issue hundreds of tickets to stop speeding in school zones

Channel 10 news - Tue, 02/19/2019 - 00:19

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The early morning hours in west Columbus are a big problem when it comes to speeders, especially in school zones.

In front of West Broad Elementary, Columbus police have clocked speeders going through a 20-mile-per-hour school zone at 35 and even 45 miles per hour.

"It's just dangerous, that's all," concerned parent Arthur Smith said. Smith escorts his son and granddaughter to school every day. He says he does it because he believes too many drivers are distracted and too many drivers are speeding.

Arthur Smith is concerned about it. "Just dangerous that's all". Smith escorts his son and granddaughter to school every day. He does it because he believes too many drivers are distracted and too many drivers are speeding.

"Some people just don't care," Smith said. "They drive the way they want to."

The motorcycle unit of the Columbus Division of Police is taking note of those drivers speeding through the school zones in Columbus. This school year alone, police say they have written 760 tickets.

Over the past month, a pair of school zones have surfaced as two of the more dangerous areas for children to cross. One of the zones is off of East 7th Avenue in front of Weinland Elementary School. In the month of January, police say they have issued 51 tickets to drivers speeding. The other school zone is located along Livingston Avenue. It's a school zone in front of All Saints Academy. Police have also issued 51 speeding tickets in that zone for January.

The latest school zone speed enforcement report by Columbus police shows other speeding trouble spots in front of schools like Walnut Ridge High School, Woodward Park Middle School, and Woodcrest Elementary School. Two of those schools are located on Livingston Avenue which police say has become a real trouble spot for officers and for children. Police say what makes this area even more dangerous is that some of the school zones are activated when it's still dark.

For parents like Arthur Smith, he says he is happy that police try to enforce the 20 mile-per-hour limit in front of his child's school. But when police aren't there, he says drivers appear to go back to their same old habits by speeding and putting children in danger.

"The traffic is kind of wild in the morning, so I have to make sure I'll be here," Smith said.

Police: More than a dozen people trapped on SeaWorld ride

Channel 10 news - Mon, 02/18/2019 - 22:04

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Police say more than a dozen people trapped on a ride at SeaWorld in San Diego have been rescued.

San Diego police tell FOX5 News that around six gondolas stopped functioning Monday night after a big gust of wind tripped a circuit breaker on "Bayside Skyride." Authorities had estimated that between 15 and 30 people were trapped, some of them in gondolas suspended above water. Sixteen were actually rescued.

The riders were lowered by harnesses and rescued by lifeguard boats. They were then evaluated by medical crews.

SeaWorld said in a statement that it will conduct a thorough inspection of the ride prior to reopening.

The National Weather Service says it was about 49 degrees in San Diego at the time.

SeaWorld said the gondolas had blankets on board.

Richland County mother closes store to breastfeed, gains support on social media

Channel 10 news - Mon, 02/18/2019 - 20:25

RICHLAND COUNTY, Ohio - Emily Edgington said she had no choice but to close the Family Dollar store earlier this month where she was working so she could pump.

Another mother saw the sign at the store in the 1200 block of Ashland Road just outside Mansfield and posted a picture to social media.

Edgington told 10TV's Lacey Crisp it is important to her to breastfeed her three-month-old daughter Eliana. She was scheduled to work alone at the Family Dollar.

“I didn't pump that day. I ended up engorged. This had been the 3rd day I worked by myself and hadn't been able to pump,” she said.

10TV reached out to Family Dollar for comment and did not receive a response.

Federal law says employers have to give people time and a place to pump.

“No mother should have to go through this,” said Edgington.

Edgington called human resources, and they told her to pump between customers.

“You cannot pump for two minutes, run back up, spend 10 minutes check out customers, then pump for two more minutes. It doesn't work like that,” Emily said.

That's when Edgington posted a sign on the door so she could take a break to pump.

She did not know a mother of three, Codey Burghard, had taken a picture of the sign and posted it to Facebook.​

What would you do if you were the mom who needed to pump, but were working alone in a store? pic.twitter.com/FXUqE6icum

— Lacey Crisp (@LaceyCrisp) February 19, 2019

“I saw the sign that was posted. I said, I'm not even that mad we got out in the cold for nothing because this is awesome,” Burghard said.

Within an hour, the picture had more than 300 likes, and plenty more now. Burghard took the picture back to the store to show the mom, she had support.

“She did what she needed to do as a mother,” said Burghard.

“I felt really good knowing other mothers were supporting me,” Edgington said.

Edgington told 10TV she did stop working at the store. She said she is afraid of what would happen if she tried to go back. She is considering taking legal action.

Family remembers first female police officer at Ohio State

Channel 10 news - Mon, 02/18/2019 - 20:00

COLUMBUS, Ohio - A decorated officer of the law. A marksman behind the short barrel of a snub-nose 38. A trailblazer in the field of law enforcement.

That describes Norma Jean Walker who was the first female police officer at the Ohio State University.

"My grandfather actually talked her into it," Chuck Miller said.

Miller's grandfather, Vernon, who worked for the Franklin County Sheriff's Office, saw potential in his wife.

He knew she could handle a workforce predominantly ran by men. In 1960, Vernon's wife Norma Jean became one of the first women to join the Columbus Police Department.

Vernon and Norma Jean Walker won more than 40 pistol shooting competitions.

Then, in 1962, she became the first female officer at the Ohio State University Police Department.

It was a task, Miller said, filled with trials and tribulations but she kept with it.

"She never let it get to her," Miller said. "She worked through them. She overcame the adversity and she prospered from it."

She was not issued a handgun until 1964.

Norma Jean Walkers' handbag with her badge, handcuffs and gun.

The picture above shows where she put it, along with her badge and handcuffs, inside the handbag she wore with her uniform.

A cover of the Sunday Magazine from The Columbus Dispatch on Feb. 23, 1964, proudly shows Walker in an article titled "Campus Lady Law."

"To know that she paved the way for other people...not many people have the opportunity to say that," Miller said. "I'm proud that I have the opportunity that I can say my grandmother paved the way."

Grandma Norma Jean certainly did. Miller is now in law enforcement and has been with the South Bloomfield Police Department the last two years.

Chuck Miller talks about his grandmother, Norma Jean Walker.

His drive and motivation comes from her, he said.

Norma Jean Walker passed away last week at the age of 87.

Inside the OSU Police Department are memories thanking Walker.

Chief Kimberly Spears-McNatt, who is the first female chief at the department, recognizes that.

"Ms. Walker is an important part of Ohio State University's history," she said. "She was a trailblazer in law enforcement and especially for me."

She loved her family and her church, but Miller said above all else she loved being an officer.

She was kind. She was accepting. Miller said her persistence continues to spark drive and motivation for a new generation.

"She had the don't quit attitude," he said. "And, that's what you needed back in the day to survive in a man's world if you're going to be a female trying to do something. Same as today."

16 states sue Trump administration over national emergency declaration

Channel 10 news - Mon, 02/18/2019 - 19:13

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California and 15 other states filed a lawsuit Monday against President Donald Trump's emergency declaration to fund a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra released a statement Monday saying the suit alleges the Trump administration's action violates the Constitution.

"President Trump treats the rule of law with utter contempt," Becerra said. "He knows there is no border crisis, he knows his emergency declaration is unwarranted, and he admits that he will likely lose this case in court."

Joining California in filing the lawsuit are the attorneys general of Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, and Virginia.

Trump declared a national emergency to fulfill his promise of completing the wall.

The move allows the president to bypass Congress to use money from the Pentagon and other budgets.

California has repeatedly challenged Trump in court.

"President Trump is manufacturing a crisis and declaring a made-up 'national emergency' in order to seize power and undermine the Constitution," said California Gov. Gavin Newsom in a statement. "This 'emergency' is a national disgrace."

Illinois "honor system" in question after deadly workplace shooting

Channel 10 news - Mon, 02/18/2019 - 18:14

AURORA, ILLINOIS — West of Chicago, workers returned Monday to a plant in Aurora where five co-workers were killed Friday. Russell Beyer worked there for more than 20 years. Vicente Juarez was a father of three, and grandfather of eight.

Clayton Parks had a wife and a son. Josh Pinkard was the manager. Trevor Wehner was on his first day as an intern. Five police officers are recovering.

Aurora Police Chief Kristen Ziman said suspect Gary Martin shouldn't have had the gun he allegedly used to kill five of his colleagues, after he was fired Friday.

"Some disgruntled person walked in and had access to a firearm he shouldn't have access to," Ziman said.

Pinkard texted his wife, "I love you, I've been shot at work."

In a Facebook post, Terra Pinkard wrote, "It took me several times reading it for it to hit me that it was for real."

Another victim was Diana Juarez's father — Vicente, a forklift operator.

"He is never going to come home ... never," she cried.

Police say Martin legally bought the handgun in 2014 after passing a background check for a Firearms Owners Identification Card (FOID). The screening should have turned up a 1995 felony, making him ineligible. The conviction did surface when he applied for a concealed carry permit, which requires fingerprints.

"Once this conviction was discovered, the offenders concealed carry permit was rejected and his card was revoked by the Illinois State Police," Ziman said.

Ziman was asked if Martin is supposed to volunteer the weapon, or if he doesn't show up with the weapon, should someone from state police go to his house.

"The letter states that he needs to voluntarily relinquish the weapons," Ziman replied. "We are looking into whether we followed up on that and if other agencies followed up on that."

By law, Illinois State Police are not required to seize firearms, if they're not returned.

"This is a bizarre honor system is what this is," Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart told CBS News. "It doesn't work and it's never worked."

Dart from neighboring Chicago launched a task force — on the county level — to pursues those guns.

He said hundreds of potential cases in Illinois involve people who have had FOID cards revoked, but still have their guns.

CBS News asked him why Illinois State Police doesn't take away guns.

"I couldn't imagine the state police would have the resources to do that," he said.

Dart said change is needed statewide to avoid another shooting like Aurora.

3 children among 4 found dead after west Michigan shooting

Channel 10 news - Mon, 02/18/2019 - 17:58

SOLON TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Authorities say three children and a woman were found dead of apparent gunshot wounds at a home in western Michigan.

Kent County Sheriff Michelle LaJoye-Young says authorities responded Monday to a property near Cedar Springs, a community about 30 miles (48 kilometers) north of Grand Rapids. She says someone discovered the bodies and called 911.

LaJoye-Young said the three children were elementary school-aged and younger but declined to provide further information about the victims' relationships to one another. She said authorities were still confirming the victims' identities.

LaJoye-Young called the scene "a horrific thing to be called to" and said "my heart goes out to the families involved here and the community."

Authorities don't believe there is a shooter at large. An investigation is ongoing.
