        Court overturns OPD bust

        The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit reversed a lower court’s decision to deny a motion to suppress evidence discovered by Oxford Police Department officers during a malicious mischief investigation in 2007.

        OPD officers pulled over a vehicle seen leaving the area where someone had thrown something at a window in an apartment complex. Drugs and a firearm were found in the vehicle and Cahafer Benjamin and Kao Wokoma were indicted on drug and firearm charges.

        The two men filed a motion with the U.S. District Court to suppress the evidence, claiming the officer has no reasonable suspicious to stop the vehicle. The lower court denied the motion, however, on Monday the Court of Appeals reversed their conviction and overturned the denial to suppress the evidence. (November 30, 2010, Page 2)

              Showing our appreciation to those who help others

              Thanksgiving is a time when most of us reflect on, and appreciate all that we have without dwelling on what we don’t have. Staff Writer Alyssa Schnugg writes that perhaps we need to spend a bit more time thinking about others who aren’t as fortunate and consider helping those who help others. She suggests, in particular, considering helping the local Interfaith Compassion Ministry. (November 25, 2010, Page 4A)
