Police Stripping Cars of Tinted Windows

first_imgAmidst the fight to contain and prevent the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), which has claimed more than 500 lives, Police officers assigned at the Topoe Road Police Station launched a drive over the weekend against cars with nontransparent windows.A police officer, who asked not to be named, said the order came in the wake following a tip concerning secret burials, especially along the Somalia Drive,  of persons who may have died from the virus.The officer told the Daily Observer in an exclusive interview that the headquarters of the Liberia National Police (LNP) has ordered officers assigned at the Topoe Road Police Depot to be vigilant about the growing trend of corpses being taken for burial, in many cases, using vehicles with tinted glasses.“The LNP asked us to remove all artificial coverings, nontransparent and colorful glasses, from windows of cars,” the officer said.Though he was not specific, another officer who also spoke anonymously said this instruction is strictly be executed in and around Islamic communities, which are known for ‘quick burials.’When contacted, LNP Spokesperson Sam Collins neither confirmed nor denied the order, but said it is illegal for cars to use unclear, black, colored, and non-transparent glasses.Mr. Collins noted that only security personnel are legally entitled to use tinted windows, as well as some governmental officials.A business man, known as Mr. Chebli has appealed to the LNP to consider and exclude cars whose windshields, side windows, or rear windows had built-in or ‘natural tints’.Other vehicle owners concur, saying that windows and windshields with built-in tinted windows have to be removed altogether and replaced with new, transparent ones.  They claim that because there has been sudden supply shortage and subsequent price increase of new glasses since outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus, these may be hard to find.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Richarlison proved to be Watford’s hero once again as his late header rescued a 2-2 draw against West Brom at The Hawthorns on Saturday.After scoring a dramatic winner away at Swansea City last weekend in the Premier League, the Brazilian popped up with an injury-time equaliser to complete an impressive comeback after Watford had trailed 2-0 in the first half.The goal – conceded in the fifth minute of added-on time – denied West Brom a maiden win in September after they had scored twice in the space of three first-half minutes.

Salomon Rondon’s first goal of the league season was quickly followed by a header from Jonny Evans, meaning the hosts had scored twice in a Premier League game for the first time in the campaign.Yet Watford fought back impressively to preserve their unbeaten record on the road, Abdoulaye Doucoure halving the deficit with a left-footed drive before Richarlison nodded in Jose Holebas’ free-kick right at the death.FT | West Brom 2-2 #watfordfc Would you believe it?! Richarlison does it again right at the death!Listen live https://t.co/MVTxcdM2TV pic.twitter.com/ZpCfCB0P50 — Watford FC (@WatfordFC) September 30, 2017 Dignified in defeat at Arsenal on Monday, West Brom took the direct approach to open the scoring in the 18th minute. Grzegorz Krychowiak’s long ball over the top allowed Rondon to bully his way beyond Christian Kabasele before somehow beating Heurelho Gomes from an acute angle.Their second owed a debt of thanks to the unfortunate Doucoure, the Watford midfielder inadvertently flicking on Matt Phillips’ corner from the left to allow Evans to provide the finishing touch from close range.Watford were fortunate Ahmed Hegazi did not capitalise on a misjudgement from Gomes to make it 3-0 from another corner, yet the visitors – who had won their first three away league games this season – finished the first half strongly to raise hopes of a comeback.After inadvertently teeing up Andre Carrillo with a scuffed shot that his team-mate headed over with the goal at his mercy, Richarlison provided the assist for Doucoure, who strode forward to claim a through pass before beating Ben Foster with a low, left-footed shot into the bottom right corner.Silva’s side continued to look the more likely scorers early in the second half.Etienne Capoue’s crisp drive appeared on course to find the net, only for Gareth Barry – making his 634th Premier League appearance – to get a crucial touch and deflect the ball wide.Still, Watford struggled to turn their dominance into opportunities against a West Brom side that were happy to sit on their lead to such an extent that Foster was warned about time wasting with 25 minutes still to play.It appeared their defence would hold firm until a set piece on the left gave Watford one last chance. While goalkeeper Gomes could not quite get on the end of Holebas’ wonderful delivery, Richarlison rose to head in an equaliser in the nick of time. Key Opta stats:- This was the first time that West Brom failed to win a Premier League match that they were two goals ahead in since nearly two years to the day (WBA 2-3 Everton – 28th September 2015).- Before today, Watford’s Premier League record in the 52 games that they have found themselves two goals down was W1 D0 L51 – the only other time that they have picked up points in a PL game after being two down was in a 4-2 away win at West Ham last September.- Salomon Rondon scored a Premier League goal at The Hawthorns for the first time since December 2016, ending a run of 13 league appearances there without a goal.- Since Tony Pulis took over as WBA boss on January 1st 2015, Salomon Rondon has scored 18 Premier League goals – seven more than any other player for the club in that period.- Five of Jonny Evans’ eight Premier League goals have been headers from corner situations. – Abdoulaye Doucoure has scored three goals in seven Premier League appearances for Watford this season. The only top-flight campaign in which he’s scored more is 2013-14 (6 in 20 apps) for Rennes in Ligue 1. read morelast_img read more
