He was released the following day on $65,000 bail.Details of the alleged crimes were not immediately available.San Diego County sheriff’s officials said Knight has been placed on leave and relieved of his law-enforcement authority.The Sheriff’s Department was made aware of this investigation from the beginning and cooperated fully with the Riverside sheriff’s detectives,” San Diego sheriff’s officials said. “The sheriff’s department has no comment on Mr. Knights’ current arrest.”In 2014, Sheriff Bill Gore tried to fire Knight for using a banned chokehold on a handcuffed inmate in a county jail facility. Gore ultimately failed in his attempt to fire Knight for using improper force and for not reporting the incident because of a ruling by the County Civil Service Commision.The Commissioners ruled against Gore and allowed Deputy Knight to keep his job and also collect back-pay.It was a decision a San Diego Union-Tribune editorial board referred to as a “dereliction of duty” and that the commissioners forced the sheriff’s department to tolerate officer misconduct.As far as the child molestation arrest is concerned, the Sheriff’s Department released a statement that reads in part, “It is clear that Sheriff Gore felt that Mr. Knight should not be a sheriff’s deputy, and the sheriff’s department did everything possible to ensure that was in fact the case.”Knight is the second sheriff’s deputy to be arrested over the last month.On Feb. 22, Deputy Richard Fischer was arraigned in connection with 14 charges of sexual assault and sexual battery for crimes allegedly committed against women while he was on duty.

Skeletons found in pit in France offer evidence of Neolithic warfare

first_img © 2015 Phys.org At the bottom of the 2 meter deep pit, the researchers report, were the scattered pieces and bits of hand bones, along with seven human arms, all from the left side of the body. On top of those were piled the full skeletal remains of one woman, two men and four children. Just one of the skeletons had an arm missing—one of the males, but it was not yet known if one of the arms underneath was his. The condition of the skeletons, the team suggests, indicates that the bones once belonged to people who were killed in some type of warfare—there was damage that appeared inflicted by axes or other such implements. Testing of the bones indicated they were all from a period between 5,500 and 6,500 years ago, putting them in the Neolithic period. A layer of sediment was on top of the skeletons and on top of that was the skeleton of another woman, whose body had clearly been put there long after the bones underneath.The team notes that there was also a piece of jewelry among the skeletons, an arrowhead, a pig jaw bone and the skeletons of two hares, which the group notes, might have simply fallen in the pit and died because they could not jump out.

DOI: 10.15184/aqy.2015.180 Citation: Skeletons found in pit in France offer evidence of Neolithic warfare (2015, December 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2015-12-skeletons-pit-france-evidence-neolithic.html Such pits were not unusual for the time the researchers point out, what is new is that the bones appear to have belonged to victims of warfare and that there was a collection of severed arms. The researchers suggest the severed arms might have been part of a trophy collection, though they note that it would represent the first evidence of such a practice for the people of that time period. Taken together, the evidence rules out the placement of the arm bones and skeletal remains as part of a funerary process, they add. More information: Fanny Chenal et al. A farewell to arms: a deposit of human limbs and bodies at Bergheim, France, c. 4000 BC, Antiquity (2015). DOI: 10.15184/aqy.2015.180AbstractBetween c. 4500 and 3500 BC, the deposition of human remains within circular pits was widespread throughout Central and Western Europe. Attempts at forming explanatory models for this practice have proven difficult due to the highly variable nature of these deposits. Recent excavations at Bergheim in Alsace have revealed a particularly unusual variant of this phenomenon featuring a number of amputated upper limbs. The evidence from this site challenges the simplicity of existing interpretations, and demands a more critical focus on the archaeological evidence for acts of systematic violence during this period.

(Phys.org)—A small team of researchers from several institutions in France, studying 6000 year-old skeletal remains found in a pit in eastern France is reporting that the remains included a bottom layer of just arm bones and a top layer consisting of the full skeletons of several adults and children. In their paper published in the journal Antiquity, the researchers describe the arrangement of the bones and their condition and offer some ideas regarding how the bones likely came to be in the pit.
