The academic scandal at North Carolina has lingered for years, and these emails won't silence cries of punishment needed by the NCAA.
The trail of evidence surrounding North Carolina's academic scandal continues to grow.
The school's internal investigation has whimpered out, and the NCAA has slowly taken its time fleshing out its own multi-stage probe. But now comes something of a shell in this case. Over the weekend, the Raleigh News & Observer released emails that it obtained more than a year after an open-records request. Those emails are embedded at the bottom of this post.
The emails in question shed light on the nature of the relationship between academic advisors and Julius Nyang'oro. He is the former chair of UNC's African studies program, the wing of academics at the school that received allegations of phony courses and manipulated grades.
The emails show Nyang'oro to be the benefactor of perks from the advisors, including offerings of standing on the sideline at football games and tickets for Tar Heels football as well.
OCALA – Richard P. Braccia, 50, of Silver Springs Shores, is charged with three counts of attempted murder on a law enforcement officer, domestic battery and tampering with a victim. Based on the severity of those charges, and a criminal history involving two DUIs in the 1980s in New York and a shoplifting charge in the 1980s in Ocala, the judge denied bond for Braccia.
While Braccia said he doesn't remember much about the incident, he said he remembers this much: He was drinking for roughly four hours. He said he has been a New York Giants fan for roughly 30 years and was upset that the Washington Redskins had beaten his team during the Monday Night Football game.
Shortly after midnight Tuesday, Braccia's wife called 911 saying her husband was battering her. While talking with a dispatcher, she said he was in a bedroom loading his firearms, described as an AK-47, a shotgun and a 9mm handgun.
According to reports, Deputy Matthew Bowers arrived at the couple's home and talked with the woman outside, then entered the home. Braccia came out of a room and fired several shots from a handgun at the deputy, who ran for cover.
A second deputy, Eduardo Bustamante, arrived. Thinking his colleague was inside, he went into the home. He also was greeted with gunfire and ran for cover.
Shots also were fired at a third deputy, Daniel Barker.
Deputies said Braccia also fired shots out the front and back of the residence.
During a stand-off, the Sheriff's Office Special Weapons and Tactics team was called. Using their armored Bearcat, they evacuated more than a dozen neighbors from area homes and set up a perimeter around the home...
One week ago, members of the Oneida Indian Nation, and others sympathetic to their cause, held a conference in Washington, DC to discuss how they plan to persuade the Washington Redskins to change their name to something less racist and offensive.
