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.

Tata after Brexit To leave or to stay in Britain

first_imgThe June 23 referendum that saw Britain leave the European Union (Brexit), has also left the Indian conglomerate Tatas with increased uncertainties, said the Nikkei Asian Review.With 19 companies in the UK and businesses ranging from tea, hotels, motels, motors, software, steel and others, the Tatas now seem to be in a fix from exiting any of it, said the review.In March, the Tatas had threatened to exit its ailing steel business in the UK if the government did not intervene to negotiate sale of business and help revive stressed plants. The much awaited last week of June, expected to crystalise talks with government, however was awash with Brexit referendum.As steel venture continues to clock losses amounting to $1.33 million a day, the Brexit verdict now stands to threaten Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Automobile a 1 billion pound loss a year. JLR, another money-spinning Tata concern, is expected to take a hit from its export to other European nations.Tatas bonhomie with the British government, which runs back to the colonial days, may stand to gain with Brexit.Despite this, Nikkei noted that, the exit from the steel business or scaling down any other may not come easily as both UK-based steel and JLR collectively contribute nearly 30 percent to the total sales of Tata Group.This apart, the review emphasized that Tatas bonhomie with the British government, which run back to the colonial days, may stand to gain with Brexit. Like the British helped bootstrap many Tata companies in their nascent days, it might as well help again, it added.As UK strengthens its bonds with the commonwealth and many erstwhile colonies, beyond the boundaries set by European Union, the Tatas might again benefit.last_img read more
