Presiding Bishop’s remarks to structure task force

first_img Rector Tampa, FL Featured Events [Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs] On February 14, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori made the following remarks at the first meeting of the Task Force on Structure created by General Convention Resolution 2012-C095:Structure Task Force14 February 2013Maritime Center, Linthicum Heights, MDThe Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts SchoriPresiding Bishop and PrimateThe Episcopal ChurchAs this body begins its work together, I want to offer a broad sketch of who and what this Church is today. I am deeply aware that many Episcopalians have a good understanding of their local congregations, but often lack the broader awareness of who and what we are. I’m also going to suggest a handful of broad areas of developmental work that I see us as a church beginning to engage. Your task is to bring all of your creativity, strategizing, thought and prayer to the work of suggesting how we might better support and undergird and challenge the life and work of this Church and to do it with as one person says, sheer holy boldness.The Episcopal Church is 2 million people in 109 dioceses and three other jurisdictions (the Area Mission of Navajoland, Convocation of Churches in Europe, and Micronesia).We are present in 16 countries: Taiwan, Micronesia, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Haiti, Dominican Republic, British and US Virgin Islands, United States including Puerto Rico, Honduras, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland. And these United States. There are conversations going on in Poland with people who want to affiliate with The Episcopal Church. We also have a unique relationship with the Diocese of Cuba, which was part of The Episcopal Church until the United States and Cuban governments forced an end to their membership in The Episcopal Church in the 1960s.Ninety percent of our members and our dioceses are in the United States, but we are not a “national church” and haven’t been for nearly two centuries, since we began to live into our formal legal identity, the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society (DFMS).We speak and worship in a variety of languages, not only in the extra-US dioceses. Even those who usually worship in one or more local languages and sometimes also in English. Within the United States context, most dioceses have worshipping communities that represent more than one cultural context, history, and/or language. The Diocese of Los Angeles offers worship in at least 19 languages every week.Our diocesan structures range from the historic and numerically large (in terms of congregations and people), like New York, Massachusetts, and Virginia, to the numerically small but geographically large western dioceses (e.g., Montana, Navajoland, Alaska, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah). Micronesia is the smallest jurisdiction, consisting of four congregations and a large boarding school, in two different island jurisdictions.Five of our dioceses are in various stages of renewal following the departure of leadership in recent years: San Joaquin, Fort Worth, Pittsburgh, Quincy, and South Carolina. In each case, the remaining Episcopalians have found resurrection in turning outward to serve their communities, and moving away from an inward focus on conflict.We are an enormously varied church, with strong growth in most of our overseas dioceses and in immigrant congregations in the United States context. Latino/Hispanic congregations are an increasingly significant part of the whole, as are Asian congregations of many sorts. These congregations are no longer all primarily first generation immigrants, and dioceses are beginning to learn how to address the changing demographic needs. We also have an increasing number of African immigrant congregations – Liberian, Sudanese, Nigerian, and others. We are also growing in more traditional congregations, particularly when they are focused on mission, and moving out into the communities around them.ChallengesAs The Episcopal Church moves into the 21st century and considers where and how the gospel needs to be proclaimed in the midst of changing societies, we have several primary foci of attention, the places where people are paying attention.1) Identity. This is central – who are we, what are we for?Far more attention is being paid to these questions, and how we form our members of all ages in an Episcopal ethos for Christian living. [You might work toward a similar statement!]We are baptized members of the body of Christ, formed and sent to be agents of God’s dream of reconciliation in a broken world.2) Mission. This is a primary response to the question of identity (I remind you of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society)In recent triennia, we have begun to explore the mission focus in broad ways that have engaged the imagination of the wider church. Beginning with the Millennium Development Goals (growing out of the global Jubilee movement in 2000), we have worked hard at serving “the least of these.” The MDGs center on the poorest of the poor in the developing world, they address hunger, maternal and children’s health, women’s empowerment, primary education, major disease threats, economically and ecologically sustainable development, and trade and debt practices. The MDGs will be refocused and renewed in 2015, and the good news is that we’ve made significant progress in several areas.One of the challenges of the MDGs is that they are focused only on poverty in developing nations, and the United States has equivalent levels of poverty in inner cities, in some rural areas, and on Native American reservations. The Domestic Poverty initiative that came out of the 2009 General Convention is a response to this challenge. It has had its initial focus on Native American communities, using Asset-Based Community Development methods.We have also claimed an Anglican Communion-generated understanding of mission in the Five Marks of Mission. This has been an enormously helpful framework for thinking about what it is God sends us to do: proclaim the good news of the kingdom; teach, baptize, and nurture new believers; respond to human need through loving service; transform unjust structures of society; and care for the earth. These Five Marks are gaining traction across The Episcopal Church and across the Worldwide Anglican Communion), particularly because no one community or part of the wider church can hope to accomplish all or even one of those on its own – these marks exemplify what it means to be members of the body of Christ.3) Sustainability in mission.The DFMS was key to missionary efforts in several parts of Asia, South and Latin America, and Liberia, and also sent early missionaries to Japan and China. A number of those churches planted in those areas have grown enough to become autonomous parts of the Anglican Communion: Mexico; IARCA (Iglesia Anglicana de la Region Central de America), Brazil, the Philippines, and the Diocese of Liberia – which joined the Province of West Africa a number of years ago. We remain in close relationship with those provinces, through covenant partnerships. At the same time, autonomy in some places came in name more than real fiscal sufficiency, which we must own as one of the legacies of our own colonial mission history. Several of the dioceses of The Episcopal Church remain in that kind of dependency, which I don’t believe is representative of full dignity and partnership in the body of Christ. Mission and ministry was begun in many contexts without adequate planning for growth and development; as a result, several of these jurisdictions remain or remained on the DFMS budget dole far longer than necessary or just.A great mission focus of the 19th century urged the broader church to recognize that growing up into the full stature of Christ as a Christian community carries three broad expectations of maturity – that it be self-governing, self-sustaining, and self-propagating (cf. Henry Venn and Roland Allen). The church in China exists today as a result of effective mission work in the 19th century along those lines, and indeed, China claims this expectation in the name it gives its Protestant churches: the Three-Self Patriotic Movement (TSPM).Province IX (Latin American dioceses) and several of our covenant partners (Philippines, Mexico, IARCA, Brazil) are engaged in a vigorous strategic process toward self-sufficiency. Navajoland and Haiti are also committed to this work. What they learn and develop might also be emulated by many of our more traditional US dioceses. Former missionary districts and dioceses (e.g., Coalition 14 and its successor the Domestic Missionary Partnership, have engaged these questions for many years). Other depopulating US dioceses might partner in the learning conversation about entrepreneurial creativity, strategic mission planning, and creative multi-faceted development that arise from these initiatives.4) Organizing and structuring for mission.The last General Convention, I think, listened well to the moving of the Spirit across The Episcopal Church (and many other churches) in recent years, and challenged us as a body to look carefully at how our structures serve God’s mission or do not serve God’s mission. This Task Force on Structure is expected to report to The Episcopal Church in late 2014, with the hope that our next General Convention will take up your proposals.Change and reform are not waiting until then, however. The body charged with shaping the next General Convention, called Planning and Arrangements, has already begun to look at how we might work more effectively.Responses NeededI see a variety of responses and needs as I look around The Episcopal Church, which are being variously addressed and will need sustained leadership by bishops, other clergy, and lay leaders:Identity as Christians and Episcopalians. We need an ongoing focus on formation for ministry and mission as engaged by all the baptized. That includes theological education for all that fits the need of individual and community. How can we more effectively call and develop ordained and lay leaders for all contexts, including tentmakers (those who will find their fiscal support other than sources other than the church).A flexible and varied understanding of congregations/faith communities. For example, new monasticism (Episcopal Service Corps, intentional lay communities), congregations without permanent buildings, things like street and coffee shop ministries, or house churches.Entrepreneurial models – such as worshiping communities that grow out of justice and/or mission efforts (feeding programs, housing initiatives, cooperatives). We are going to need to rethink, restructure, and reform in order to ensure that all of these develop that are sustainable – as congregations and dioceses, and for clergy and lay leadership can be sustainable.Continued focus on mission. I believe our goal is the Kingdom of God, shalom, the beloved community, call it what you will — it means seeing this work through the lens of ensuring justice for all. That involves addressing poverty and care of the earth, so that all have full and adequate access to food, the basic stuff of life, education, employment, dignity, access to just economic systems. An essential part of this work is peace-making: questions of war, exploitation, violence including gender violence, as well as migration, poverty, and globalization.Strong, and well-formed communities of leaders are needed, that model shared and servant leadership, that operate with radical trust, creativity. We need flexibility and capacity to respond to emerging realities and the call of the Spirit.I want to encourage us to think about how we nurture and develop full communion partnerships with the ELCA, Moravians, IFI (Iglesia Filipina Independiente), and Mar Thoma Church. How can we continue to Explore other ecumenical possibilities for the sake of God’s mission.We need to engage interreligious conversation, and explore possibilities for shared mission and solidarity, for all cases where we share the common goal of a healed and reconciled world.Worldwide Anglican Communion38 autonomous provinces form the Worldwide Anglican Communion. A significant portion of the Communion has its origin in The Episcopal Church: Brazil, Mexico, IARCA, Philippines, Liberia, Cuba. Early missionaries also helped to form the churches in Japan and China. We also have a long and deep relationship with the Diocese of Jerusalem.The recent unpleasantness, as some people might call it, in the Worldwide Anglican Communion is developmental. The Communion is maturing – it’s moving from adolescence and dependency (that budget issue, again) into more adult and mutual relationships. The “Windsor process” that tried to define structures and attempted to develop an Anglican Covenant has been helpful because it has promoted far deeper and more honest conversation about relationships. We have hardly begun to explore the history of colonialism, however, from the legacy of both the British Empire and the United States.Most people would recognize the Windsor process claim of “four instruments of communion” as being the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Lambeth Conference, the Primates’ Meeting, and the Anglican Consultative Council. Language about the “instruments” has shifted in recent months from surgical instruments to symphonic instruments, which I think is very significant. The ACC is clear that leadership in the Worldwide Anglican Communion needs to include the voices of laity and non-episcopal clergy, as well as women, in all its structures.Relationships across the Communion continue to grow in number, depth, and mutuality. There is increasing understanding between The Episcopal Church and the Church of England, although there is still abundant plenty of room for growth there. The recent ACC meeting (Oct-Nov 2012 in Auckland) had attendees from all but one province in the Communion, and far more effective conversation and outcomes than the previous two meetings. In spite of or in parallel with GAFCON, the Communion is still extant, although not completely what we would hope for and expect in Christian community.Relationships are essential to the life of the Communion. Several ACC initiatives are helping to develop greater missional partnerships: Continuing Indaba; Bible in the Life of the Church project; the Anglican Communion networks of several sorts.The impact of Lambeth 2008, and a meeting of North American and African bishops in Spain before Lambeth, can’t be overstated. Most recognize the real need for learning and understanding other contexts; deep engagement in missional partnership is both the way to accomplish that, and it is the fruit of that engagement.All of these communion-wide endeavors need investment, both personal and financial. Deconstructing the colonialism in our wider life and relationships is essential to answering God’s missional call. The Anglican Communion is the world’s third- largest distribution system, after the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox Churches. It can be a powerful force for healing, reconciliation, and transformation toward the reign of God. Anglican and Episcopal churches exist beyond the end of the road in many countries around the world, that can offer healing, education, and transformation to the communities around them. The Anglican Alliance (of relief and development agencies of which Episcopal Relief & Development is a part) is an example of what is possible when we work together rather than separately. We have also seen what a difference it makes when one part of the Communion stands in solidarity with another. The life of people around the world has been changed by Worldwide Anglican Communion prayers and solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Zimbabwe, Jerusalem, Congo, Sudan, Japan post-tsunami, Haiti, and in the eastern United States following the storm called Sandy.All of this work toward the Reign of God depends on continuing to develop incarnate relationships, which are the outward and visible expression of the great commandment to love God and to love our neighbor as ourselves.

Ireland go top of the Six Nations after win over Italy

first_imgMonday Feb 16, 2009 Ireland go top of the Six Nations after win over Italy Ireland secured a scrappy win over Italy at the Stadio Flamino on the weekend, taking them to the top of the Six Nations table.Luke Fitzgerald crossed twice with Tommy Bowe, David Wallace and Brian ODriscoll also touching down against a limited Azzurri, who ran out of ideas after a rousing first 35 minutes.Ireland crushed their resistance by cranking up the pressure at key moments, leading to scores for Fitzgerald and Wallace either side of the interval that swept them out of sight.Luke McLean contributed all of Italys points with three penalties and, for all their possession and spirit, Nick Malletts team never threatened the visitors line.The second half wasnt pretty as Ireland failed to put the Azzuri to the sword in a half in which they dominated, but also had a large error count.There were however late tries from Fitzgerald and ODriscoll, making the final score of 38-9 make the match look one sided, when in reality, it wasnt.‘We’re happy to have won. The scoreline may flatter us but we’ll take anything we can get,’ said captain O’Driscoll.‘It’s pleasing that things didn’t start well for us but the longer the game went on the better we got.‘We were patient and knew we’d have to wait to break them down before taking our opportunities.‘They didn’t score a try and that’s because of our defence, not because of their lack of ability.

Reporter released from prison after colleagues pay fine

first_img Help by sharing this information News News Organisation Reporters Without Borders is relieved to learn that Al-Jarida reporter Amal Habani was released from Omdurman women’s prison yesterday after her colleagues paid the fine of 2,000 Sudanese pounds that a court imposed on her on 25 July. Habani spent two days in the prison, to which she was taken after refusing to pay the fine.————-25.07.2011Another woman journalist jailed for reporting rape allegationsAmal Habani, a woman reporter for the daily Al-Jarida, was today sentenced to a fine of 2,000 pounds (600 euros) or a month in jail for reporting a woman activist’s claims that she was raped by members of the security forces. As Habani refused to pay the fine, she was immediately taken to Omdurman women’s prison, northwest of the capital, to begin serving the jail sentence.Habani was convicted by Judge Modather Al-Rasheed of the Khartoum media court, who fined her editor, Saadeldin Ibrahim, 5,000 pounds (1,500 euros). Agence France-Presse quoted her lawyer as saying they were found guilty of publishing false information and violating journalistic ethics.She is the second woman journalist working for Al-Jarida to be tried in the past three weeks for reporting human rights activist Safia Ishag’s rape allegations. Fatima Ghazali was convicted on 5 July and was taken to Omdurman prison the same day. She was released two days later after paying her fine.Seven other journalists and media contributors are due to be tried or are still the subject of judicial investigations for the same reason. They are Faisal Mohamed Salih, Babikir Omer Al-Garrai, Abdalla Al-Shaik, Mohamed Latif, Faiz Al-Selaik, Mohamed Osman and Dr. Nahid Al-Hassan. More information ————–05.07.11Two journalists convicted for articles about human rights violationsJudge Modather Al-Rasheed of the Khartoum press court today sentenced Fatima Ghazali, a journalist with the daily Al-Jarida, to a fine of 2,000 Sudanese pounds (516 euros) or one month in prison in case of refusal to pay. As Ghazali refused to pay the fine, she was immediately taken to Omdurman prison to begin serving her sentence.The judge also sentenced Al-Jarida editor Saadeldin Ibrahim to a fine of 5,000 Sudanese pounds (1,290 euros) in connection with the same articles about human rights violations by the security forces.Several journalists were able to attend today’s hearing. When Ghazali, Ibrahim and a third Al-Jarida journalist, Amal Habani, appeared in court on 30 June, Judge Rasheed banned the media from the courtroom. Habani is due to be tried on 14 July.——————–18.06.2011Ten journalists hounded and prosecuted for covering human rights violationsReporters Without Borders roundly condemns the disgraceful way the authorities are harassing and prosecuting journalists in Khartoum and the north of the country in an attempt to silence them and stop embarrassing revelations about human rights violation by the security forces.“While the international community and media have their attention turned to South Sudan’s future independence and the fighting in Abyei and South Kurdufan, the human rights and media freedom situation continues to be very worrying in the north,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Despite a great deal of prior censorship, the government and security forces now want to force journalists to censor themselves. The recent arrests of journalists and the prosecutions initiated against them are likely to dissuade the media from covering crimes by the security forces. Since the start of this year, any criticism of the security forces has been liable to lead to court proceedings.“We denounced the harassment of journalists and the way the judicial apparatus was being used against them in March. Since then, the situation has become even worse and could lead to a complete news blackout on human rights violations in the north of the country.”According to a Reporters Without Borders tally, around 10 journalists and media contributors have received court summonses or are subject to judicial investigations that are almost certainly the result of complaints brought by the security forces.The following journalists were on an unofficial list that the security forces submitted to the justice ministry: Faisal Mohamed Salih, Babikir Omer Al-Garrai, Abdalla Al-Shaik, Mohamed Latif, Faiz Al-Selaik, Amal Habani, Fatima Ghazali, Saadeldin Ibrahim, Mohamed Osman and Dr. Nahid Al-Hassan.All of them have written or contributed to articles condemning human rights activist Safia Ishag’s arrest, torture and gang-rape by members of the National Intelligence and Security Services (NISS) in February.They are liable to be prosecuted under the 1991 Criminal Code and the 1999 Press Act on charges of defaming and spreading false information about the security forces, which are protected by the National Security Act.One of the latest cases involves three journalists with the daily Al-Jarida, who appeared before the Press Court on 12 June: Amal Habani, who was already questioned by judicial officials in March, Fatima Ghazali and Saadeldin Ibrahim, the newspaper’s editor. Habani and Ibrahim were summoned to appear again on 16 June, when judge Modather Al-Rasheed, after hearing evidence from NISS representatives and their lawyers, decided to prosecute them under article 66 of the Criminal Code (concerning false information), article 24 of the Press Act (on the duties and obligations of journalists) and article 26 of the Press Act (on the duties of editors). The next hearing will be on 30 June. Ghazali is due to appear in court on 19 June, together with Ibrahim.Two weeks before that, three journalists appeared before the Press Court in Khartoum in two separate cases on 29 May. They were Faisal Mohamed Salih, a renowned journalist working for the Arabic-language newspaper Al-Akhbar, Babikir Omer Al-Garrai, a writer who contributes to the daily Ajras Alhurriya, and Ajras Alhurriya editor Abdalla Al-Shaik.Al-Garrai and Al-Shaik are being prosecuted for a 6 March article headlined “Rape…Under Sharia law” which urged the authorities to shed light on the mistreatment of Ishag. They are due to appear in court again on 21 June.Salih, who is due to appear in court again on 28 June, and his newspaper’s editor, Mohamed Latif, are being prosecuting on a libel charge under article of the Press Act over a 1 March story in which Salih said NISS personnel were avoiding prosecution and were enjoying complete impunity under the National Security Act although the head of the security forces had issued no express directive to this effect.Fellow journalist Abdelazeez Al-Nagar, who went to the Press Court on 29 May in a show of support for his three colleagues, was arrested for distributing articles outside and was held for several hours.The list of journalists targeted by the security forces grows longer by the day. They include Reporters Without Borders Sudan correspondent Faisal Elbagir, the founder of Journalists for Human Rights, who is currently in exile. Mohamed Osman, the head of the Khartoum bureau of the English-language newspaper The Citizen, and Nahid Al-Hassan, an activist and contributor to Ajras al-Hurriya and Al-Ayaam, are also being investigated and Al-Hassan has received a summons for 6 July.More information about the campaign of harassment by the security forces against journalists who cover their human rights violations .Alsahafa daily journalist Gafar Alsabki Ibrahim, who has been detained together with Radio Dabanga contributors since 3 November 2010, appeared before the Khartoum Criminal Central Court on 16 June 2011. The next session, held by the judge Abdelmoniem Salim Mohamed Ali, will take place on 21 June.

The men and women of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deserve better.”Bonner criticized Villanueva for failing to build a working relationship with the county Board of Supervisors, saying he has “gone out of his way to alienate and insult supervisors.”Patti Giggans, chair of the commission, echoed Bonner’s sentiment, saying, “The sheriff’s department does not have the leader it deserves.”The commission could take an official “no-confidence” vote on the sheriff at its next meeting.The comments came at the end of a meeting highlighted by concerns over the weekend arrest of a reporter covering protests outside a Lynwood hospital following the shooting of two sheriff’s deputies in Compton.Inspector General Max Huntsman, who is investigating the arrest of Josie Huang, a reporter with KPCC and LAist, said he is still waiting to receive materials from the sheriff’s department to conduct a more thorough probe. But he questioned the veracity of earlier statements by Villanueva and the department about the arrest.“Unfortunately, all evidence we have currently gathered suggests that significant parts of the claims made by the (sheriff’s) department may have been false,” Huntsman told the commission. “The information we have gathered is preliminary and not intended to substitute for a complete investigation.”Huang was pinned to the ground and handcuffed while covering the arrest of a demonstrator outside a Lynwood hospital following the Saturday night shooting of two deputies. Her arrest has been met with outrage from media organizations.On Wednesday, the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press — a coalition of 64 media organizations — called on the sheriff’s department to drop the citation it issued to Huang, who spent about five hours in custody. The group echoed concerns expressed by other media groups that have disputed the sheriff’s version of the arrest, and called on the department “to take immediate steps to prevent another incident like the arrest of (Huang).”During Thursday’s meeting, Oversight Commission member Lael Rubin said she’s concerned that under the leadership of Villanueva, deputies may have violated people’s right to protest and journalists’ right to report a story.“It seems to me that the sheriff has dug in his heels on this issue, and I don’t want us to get into a situation where the sheriff is asking us to defend what he has done here,” Rubin said.The commission asked county attorneys a report on the legal responsibilities of law enforcement operations at protests and have it ready for the panel’s next meeting in October.Emails and calls to the LASD seeking comment regarding Huang’s arrest and the commission’s actions were not immediately returned. An LASD representative told City News Service on Wednesday the case was still under investigation and the department had no further comment.Huang was arrested as she was covering a confrontation involving a handful of protesters at the emergency room entrance of St. Francis Medical Center, where the deputies injured in the Compton shooting were being treated.Video from the scene showed deputies pinning Huang to the ground and arresting her.The sheriff’s department claimed she didn’t have proper media credentials, failed to properly identify herself as a reporter and was “interfering with a lawful arrest” of one of the protesters.Villanueva later doubled down on that contention, saying Huang got “right up on the shoulder” of a deputy trying to make an arrest, and saying her actions were more “activism” than journalism.But video from Huang’s cell phone subsequently surfaced, showing her repeatedly identifying herself as a reporter, shouting “KPCC,” and saying, “You’re hurting me” and crying out in apparent pain.Huang was cited and could face charges under California Penal Code Section 148 for obstructing a law enforcement officer from performing his or her lawful duties.County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl told City News Service Thursday that she has little faith in Villanueva to denounce the actions that were taken against Huang.“I think it’s now incontrovertible that the sheriff has essentially been lying about so many of these things and has (been) shown to be lying by video recording,” Kuehl said.“I understand deputies need to make quick decisions, minute by minute, but that’s where accountability and training come in and that’s where leadership comes in,” she said. “The sheriff should be telling his deputies that these actions are not acceptable, that the press has the right to cover these stories.”The letter from the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press accuses deputies of violating Huang’s constitutional rights.“The right to record police activity in public is clearly established, and an officer who violates that First Amendment freedom — especially through the use of force — enjoys no legal immunity,” the group contends in the letter. “Based on multiple recordings of the incident, it appears that the Department’s arrest of Ms. Huang violated these clearly established First Amendment rights.”The Los Angeles Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists wrote a letter to Huntsman on Wednesday asking that his office make public all information it gathers in the investigation.“The department’s treatment of Huang threatens to have a chilling effect on journalists across the county. We cannot overstate the importance of a thorough investigation by your office,” chapter president David Zahniser wrote.Villanueva apologized Wednesday for a separate incident involving one of his deputies, who shined his flashlight at a television camera operated by a Fox11 crew that was documenting the arrest of a suspect at a fire.“Unbelievable. Look at this LA County Sheriff’s Deputy shining his flashlight directly into our @foxla camera, trying to prevent us from recording an arrest made at fire,” reporter Gigi Graciette tweeted. “Said we weren’t allowed to videotape. What? We are standing on sidewalk where law clearly allows us to be.”Villanueva responded soon after with his own tweet.“I have personally spoken to @GigiGraciette and apologized on behalf of @LASDHQ for the wrongful actions of one of our personnel while she and @FoxLA were reporting on an arrest,” the sheriff said.
