<i>Huffington</i> Magazine This Week: Under Fire
Huffington Post - over 3 years
In this week's issue, Radley Balko looks at how an unprecedented police reform movement got its start in one of America's most conservative states: Utah. Radley takes us back to Jan. 4, 2011, when Army veteran Matthew David Stewart's home in Ogden -- where he grew marijuana -- was raided by 12 police officers in the middle of the night. Stewart exchanged fire with the police for about 20 minutes. By the end of the battle, one cop was dead, and according to various accounts, between 130 and 250 bullets had been fired. Stewart landed in prison, where he ended up hanging himself in May of this year. An editorial in the Salt Lake Tribune after the incident questioned why the police decided to wage "a military-style attack on a small-time weed grower," while Ogden's Standard-Examiner called for a "re-evaluation of how local law enforcement handles its duties, particularly concerning raids and late-night police procedures." The incident, and others like it, have caused many to wonder ...

Suspect in killing of officer found dead in cell
Fox News - almost 4 years
A Utah Army veteran charged with killing a police officer and wounding five others in a shootout during a marijuana raid was found Friday hanging dead in his cell, authorities said. Matthew David Stewart, 39, was found hanging from a bed sheet during a routine cell check just before 1 a.m., Weber County Attorney Dee Smith said. The county has referred the investigation into the death to an outside agency, and another county attorney will review it. The man's father, Michael Stewart, has said he doesn't believe foul play was involved and it may have been a suicide. Michael Stewart said his son was despondent over a judge's recent refusal to hold a hearing on what the family believes was an illegally obtained search warrant. Stewart was accused of killing strike force agent Jared Francom and wounding other officers when authorities descended on his Ogden home during a January 2012 raid. He could have faced the dea ...

Did you attend Roanoke Symphony Orchestra’s opening night concert Monday? Tell me what you thought in the comments. Concert review: Roanoke symphony opens 59th season with wit, grace, cannon fire By Timothy Gaylard On Monday night Maestro David Stewart Wiley conducted the opening concert of the Roanoke symphony’s 59th season to a near-capacity crowd of 1,600 at the Roanoke Performing Arts Theatre. The Program of “Symphonic Fireworks” included many familiar works and one that was relatively unfamiliar. The regular program began with a graceful and witty performance of Beethoven’s charming Symphony No. 1. Here the orchestra played with general precision and appropriate elegance. Only a few times did Wiley allow the ensemble to storm the ramparts with some of the sounds we associate with the mature Beethoven. At the beginning of the second half of the program, the audience was treated to the delights of the rarely heard Tuba Concerto by Ralph Vaughan Williams. The soloist was ...

Bury Free Press - over 4 years
A FATHER, who drove after drinking because he was afraid for the safety of his mentally ill son, has been banned from driving for a year. Derek Stewart Lee Oliver, 58, of Eastern Way, Elmswell, pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol – 76 micrograms to 100 millilitres of breath – at Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court last Thursday.
