Las Vegas shooting witness: “It sounded like a thousand shots”

first_img Please enter your comment! Breaking overnight: Over 50 dead, 200 injured in Las Vegas after deadliest shooting in modern US history From Good Morning AmericaMore than 50 people were killed and 200 injured when a lone gunman opened fire from a perch high up in the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas Sunday night, police said, making it the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history. Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 If I was staying there at the casino resort, Mandalay Bay, during this timeframe of the killings, and learned from the news that the killer was staying there also, and did his shootings from the window there, I would have totally freaked out. Heard a lot of fire engines and sirens this afternoon while working in the yard. What went on? A lot of them! Sounded like toward Vick Road, just guessing. October 2, 2017 at 3:32 pm Reply Gov.

I know where the young moms with their young babies and toddlers all go now with their strollers! Strangely, almost all little girls too. It must have been young mommy day. I thought I was at Disney or Animal Kingdom again. It was nice to see them enjoying life, viewing nature, and casting aside the politics, and horrible news on the tv and media today. A lot of photos being made and videos of their kids, many dressed up and in sunhats. October 2, 2017 at 5:13 pm Mama Mia Why??? Men who love war. Reply Please enter your name here TAGSLas VegasShooting Previous articleIn case you missed it: The Apopka news week in reviewNext articleResources are Available to FEMA’s Diverse Audience Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR NikiWho…..We have a president who has publicly stated before his being elected, during his campaign tours, that he loves war! It was shown on tv. Over and over again.. He said it, and he meant it. He has tried to fuel the potential war between the US and North Korea. Rex Tillerson has been trying his best to de-fuel the situation, but Trump dismisses Tillerson’s efforts as wasting his time. I would not call trying to head off a nuclear war, or a hydrogen bomb situation between countries as “wasting one’s time”. Also, there is no draft currently at this time, imposed by our government, here in the US. This may change, but right now, no person here is forced to fight for this country as a military soldier, as it is currently, unlike the past, when our young men didn’t have a choice. I am seeing our own president act in ways similar to a dictator also, and it is very concerning, as he is one that cannot be reasoned with either. Think about it, is all I am saying, whether you agree or not, Niki. I am watching Inside Edition and looking at some of the victims who were only there to have fun and enjoy the country concert. I only wish things were like they used to be, even though there are some who hate to hear that said, but it is true, things are going to hell in this world, and are not the same happier, more carefree times like they used to be. I look back, and I do think it is the Y2K thing, that people feared at the start of the year 2000. Just think about it, and how things have been evolving into a more chaotic, evil, hell- like planet. October 2, 2017 at 4:19 pm The “nonstop gunfire,” according to one witness, sent bystanders outside the resort on the Vegas strip ducking for cover and scrambling for their lives. Tourists hid in their hotel rooms and flights headed into the McCarran International Airport were held elsewhere.Bystanders sprang into action, caring for the wounded and at least one described someone dying in their arms.Police said a Las Vegas police officer who was off-duty attending the concert is among the dead.One video showed the terrifying aftermath as the injured lay on stretchers or on the ground with responders and bystanders surrounding them to give aid. Bystanders made makeshift stretchers out of police barricades, plugged wounds with their hands and used their clothing to try to stanch the bleeding from the wounded.Videos filmed by onlookers gave a window into the chaos that ensued, with some thinking that fireworks were going off. The final night of the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival was taking place across the street from Mandalay Bay. Jason Aldean was the night’s headliner; other performers included country stars Jake Owen, Big & Rich, Luke Combs and Dylan Scott.In the wake of the shooting, the Las Vegas Police Department said the suspected gunman, who was believed to be a local resident, was on 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay hotel. Police responded to the scene, engaged him and he is now dead. Law enforcement officials identified the suspect as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock.Authorities were looking for a companion of the shooter, Marilou Danley, and authorities later said this morning, “We’re confident — but not 100 percent sure — we have located the female person of interest.”Las Vegas mass shooting: Country music stars pray for victims after gunman kills at least 20 near concertLas Vegas shooting: What we know about suspect Stephen Paddock“We were just at the concert there, and Jason Aldean was playing,” one of the concertgoers, named Mike Cronk, 48, a retired teacher, told ABC News. “Kind of sounded like some fireworks going off. I think there was the first kind of volley, and then all of the sudden second volley. My buddy’s like, ‘I just got hit, you know.’ He got hit three times. Then people started diving for the ground. And it just continued.“It was pretty much chaotic,” Cronk continued. “Lots of people got hit. … It took a while to get him out. We had to get him over the fence and hiding under the stage for a while, you know, to be safe. And, finally, we had to move him because he had three chest wounds.”Cronk said his group were finally able to track down an ambulance “and basically the one guy ended up dying in my arms because he was bleeding,” he said. “And my buddy got in there. We got three more people in the ambulance. … But I just got a message from my buddy — and he’s going to be okay.”As bursts of gunfire crackled in the air, people outside of the casino ducked and screamed, according to video filmed by witnesses.“We’re going to get trampled if we don’t go,” a bystander could be heard saying in a dramatic video of the incident. Confusion appeared to abound as those outside fled the scene with another person saying, “it’s fireworks.”Michelle Leonard, who was located in a booth near the main entrance of the arena, said the shooting just “kept going nonstop.”Leonard said “mass confusion” unfolded as people tried to flee the scene. She said the shooting seemed like it went on for more than a minute.“I had no idea of where it was coming from or where to run to,” Leonard said.She said she injured her leg as she tried to escape.Another witness, Jake Freeman, said he was standing on the rooftop of a nearby hotel when the shooting broke out.“I had a bird’s-eye view” of the shooting, Freeman said in a phone interview with ABC News. He said he saw “crowds of people running” as people “dropped to the ground.”“At the moment we didn’t realize that they were being shot,” he said.Aldean, who performed at the country concert Sunday night, wrote on Instagram, “Tonight has been beyond horrific. I still dont know what to say but wanted to let everyone know that Me and my Crew are safe. My Thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved tonight. It hurts my heart that this would happen to anyone who was just coming out to enjoy what should have been a fun night.”An official with McCarran International Airport said “an airport perimeter fence near the concert venue was breached by people fleeing the scene of the incident.”“Airport staff responded and have transported those people to the designated evacuation site,” the officials said. “The fence line is once again secured.”Flights in and out of the McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas were temporarily halted due to the incident.ATF agents have responded to the scene and the FBI is assisting with the investigation. The FBI is also supporting local law enforcement efforts in Las Vegas.Mandalay Bay Resort tweeted, “Our thoughts & prayers are with the victims of last night’s tragic events. We’re grateful for the immediate actions of our first responders.”The resort said in a statement that “law enforcement requested that we put hotels in the vicinity on lockdown to ensure guest safety.”President Donald Trump tweeted, “My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!”Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval tweeted, “A tragic & heinous act of violence has shaken the #Nevada family. Our prayers are w/ the victims & all affected by this act of cowardice.“Pray for Las Vegas,” Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman said via Twitter. “Thank you to all our first responders out there no8322) Reply Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter The Las Vegas shooter supposedly was a professional gambler and accountant, and his father was a known bank robber who served prison time. I highly suspect that the shooter had robbed many banks himself, considering he lived the high life. Owned nice homes, arsenals of guns and ammo, traveled, gambled….I think he robbed banks also, and just was not caught. My opinion only. Mama Mia Reply Mama Mia Before when I was there I wanted to see the very thorny Silk Floss Trees which have some of the meanest sharpest thorns up and down the trunk, in bloom, because they are very much a desired tree because of the beautiful blooms and unusual trunks. They were not in bloom then. Today they were beautifully in bloom with almost hibiscus like flowers of the most gorgeous pinkish red colors. Only thing was that several of the big ones were uprooted and blown over. What a shame. October 2, 2017 at 8:48 am Reply Mama Mia Stopped back on the way home by the Krispy Kreme drive- thru in Winter Park, and threw caution to the wind, and had the most wonderful, fresh, and still slightly warm yummy glazed donut ever….OMG, so good. We all are gonna get nuked anyway. Mama Mia Reply At the entrance was a big tree uprooted, several over the wrought iron fences that surround the gardens, a big tree that fell and damaged one of the main buildings that was closed off. Magnolias, big oaks, lots of different kinds of palms destroyed. The Rainbow Eucalyptus made it through but was in the flooded area. People were intrigued with the gardens still, I know I was. The citrus trees all had their fruit blown off and on the ground. The gardens will recover, and time will march on. October 3, 2017 at 1:50 am Mama Mia Reply Mama Miacenter_img October 2, 2017 at 3:43 pm October 3, 2017 at 2:44 pm 19 COMMENTS Mama Mia I viewed the gravesites of the Mizell family. Sheriff Mizell that was ambushed in Holopaw and killed, and who was buried right out there on his property back in 1870, in a moonlight ceremony, according to the historical marker, which stated the Apopka Lodge brethren came during the night from Apopka, and it was the first ( some kind of meeting) in Central Florida…..now I can’t remember??? Mama Mia I have been over in Orlando this morning, and when I get back to Apopka, I see that the fatality count is 58 people dead, and 500 + injured and wounded, since I posted about the shooting earlier this morning on this article, and another article on here on the Apopka Voice, before this article was posted. 300 more injured or wounded than when I left this morning, plus 8 more dead. ISIS is claiming responsibility for this mass shooting, but the authorities do not believe there is a connection to the older man, who is the shooter, allegedly. Reply Mama Mia October 2, 2017 at 5:25 pm October 3, 2017 at 8:16 pm Mama Mia Reply October 2, 2017 at 2:30 pm James1958 NikiWho Mama Mia Reply Mama Mia October 2, 2017 at 3:51 pm October 2, 2017 at 5:27 pm The mass killer used the exclusive resort hotel room as his own personal cushy gun range, except instead of bulls- eye targets, he used humans. There is no excuse for that kind of evil, but the reality is that somewhere, sometime, once again, another sicko will commit yet another copy-cat mass shooting, and there is no way to know where it will happen, when it will happen, who it will be, and how to stop it from happening again. Reply October 2, 2017 at 4:21 pm Reply Reply October 2, 2017 at 3:00 pm Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply We walked down the camphor tree lane lined place of original driveway that led to the Leu family property estate where they lived. The camphor trees were huge, and the historical marker stated that they were planted in 1900. So that makes them 117 years old. Look what they have endured, all the lightning, storms, winds, disease, etc. It said they are bug resistant due to their aroma but they do not advise planting them due to they are considered invasive. These were protected due to their age and their importance of lining the entrance of the Leu family’s estate. Well worn, but thriving regardless….. Men who love war?? How about men who hate evil, who are forced into war to protect the innocent because you can’t reason with dictators or negotiate with terrorist. Reply It is cool to stand there on that current setting, and think back to that night, and to know that here I am standing here on this site 147 years later. Kind of makes me feel young. Such a sad time we are living in, people just don’t care who they hurt or kill as long as they get what they want. Praying for all who got hurt or killed and their families, May God have mercy on their souls. Reply October 2, 2017 at 3:36 pm When gunfire broke out on the Las Vegas strip late Sunday night, Michelle Leonard was in a booth near the main entrance of a concert that was taking place across the street from the Mandalay Bay Casino.“It sounded like a thousand shots,” Leonard, a vendor, told ABC News in a tearful phone interview on Monday. The shooting just “kept going nonstop.”Leonard said “mass confusion” unfolded as people tried to flee the venue. She said her friend stepped over several dead people as they tried to flee the “scary” scene.“I turned around and I looked and people just started running,” she said. “People were just running and falling and screaming,” she said, adding that it seemed as if the shooting lasted for than a minute.“It sounded like maybe 16 to 20 rounds,” Leonard said. “I had no idea of where it was coming from or where to run to.”Leonard was one of the throngs of people who were on the strip as gunfire erupted, killing more than 20 people and injuring more than 100. The bursts of what one witness described as “non-stop gunfire” sent people running for their lives and sparked confusion.Another witness, Vincent Sager, said he mistook the shots for “fireworks,” quickly realized that they they were gunshots when he saw “someone run by me in blood,” he said in an Instagram post.Social media video showed witnesses as they scrambled to flee the scene as shots rang out. Some people were seen crouching on the ground, stumbling over each other, as others attempted to run.Another witness said that the concert venue felt like a “kill box” because it was so hard for people to get out.As bursts of gunfire crackled in the air, people outside of the casino ducked and screamed.“We’re going to get trampled if we don’t go,” a bystander could be heard saying in a dramatic video of the incident. Some believed the shots were “fireworks.”Another witness, Jake Freeman, said he was standing on a nearby hotel rooftop when the shooting broke out.“I had a bird’s-eye view” of the shooting Freeman said in a phone interview with ABC News. He said he saw ‘crowds of people running” as people “dropped to the ground.”“At the moment we didn’t realized that they were being shot,” he said. This is what happens when people get mad at the world, for whatever reason, get frustrated, have pent up resentment, just don’t care anymore, and then lash out. God help us all…….we are living in a different era, a different time, than in the past. Mama Mia UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Mama Mia I looked around at the historical significance of the property, the marvels of the plant world, and the next generation of kids there visiting, laughing and having fun, and I thought to myself, why all the war in the world, the killings, and the evil? I couldn’t help but think what a shame it would be if a nuclear ended it all, as we know it.

The Westgate Residence is a renovation of a 1948 house located in Brentwood, CA where the objective was to architecturally update the building through the use of new materials, spatial definition and openings, but without increasing the overall square footage or building envelope. Save this picture!© Unlimited Style PhotographyAs a design-build collaboration with Rhino Construction, Inc the the design process was fluid, allowing for discovery and adaptation during the construction process. Situated near a fairly busy street intersection with an abundance of foot traffic, the challenge was to create a peaceful dwelling from an existing building shell. Because the home owners are a retired couple, ease of function and overall practicality were just as important as the overall design. Our mission was to seamlessly blend these requirements in a  poetic way.Save this picture!© Unlimited Style PhotographyRather than adding more area with a second floor, the house was kept to one level. The 50’x100’ lot meant that the existing footprint has already been maximized, providing a first floor area at 2,200 square feet. However, the house had good bones, allowing us to pierce new window, door, and skylight openings, providing more natural light. Walls and unnecessary partitions were removed, allowing the main area to feel as one large space, but within it, containing smaller zones.Save this picture!© Unlimited Style PhotographySecurity was an important factor to consider along with the limited outdoor space, so a courtyard with retractable sunshades were created to enclose the front yard. Douglas fir wood slats are placed at such a height that those on the sidewalk level cannot see in, but those at the higher courtyard level can see out.Save this picture!© Unlimited Style PhotographyThe heightening of the senses was important throughout, and informed the selection of rich materials with tactile qualities. Douglas Fir wood was used for the siding as well as the doors and windows with copper gutters and downspouts lining the exterior eaves.  Walnut wood flooring and cabinetry are consistent throughout the house. Limestone paving is used in the courtyard, while Argentinian cobblestone announces the driveway and entrance.  Water-jet stone is used at at the fireplace, Kitchen backsplash and in the Master Bathroom, allowing a custom designed grooves into the stone.Save this picture!© Unlimited Style PhotographyAttention to details create unique elements of surprise and wonder to the small space. One of these details was the creation of a  dam-less level shower where the slab appears to float as the water falling off the edges and disappearing. Another was the use of white panels on the casework that can slide, tilt and re-positon to hide the television or any undesirables on the shelves. Save this picture!© Unlimited Style PhotographyFountains and water elements add white noise to reduce the sound of street traffic while the landscaping was designed to screen, yet give a sense of calm and reflection.Save this picture!Site PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessTwelve Architects to Design Airport in Russia for 2018 World CupArchitecture NewsUrban Shelter / MYCCSelected Projects Share Projects United States ArchDaily CopyHouses•Los Angeles, United Statescenter_img “COPY” CopyAbout this officeKurt Krueger ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodLos AngelesHousesUnited StatesPublished on September 29, 2013Cite: “Westgate Residence / Kurt Krueger Architect” 29 Sep 2013.

In this it focuses on the need to restore the sector’s funding and rebuild the independence of not-for-profit organisations, reducing “government interference”.Unite’s national officer for the sector Sally Kosky said:“What has happened to the voluntary sector over the last five years is that there has been a vice-like squeeze with a savage reduction in funding, coupled with increased political meddling.“There needs to be a fundamental rethink by the new government in its attitude to the sector – and this would mean a reversal of the funding cuts and a loosening of the government’s corset of political controls”.

New coalition mobilizes against U.S. sanctions and war

first_imgPortland, Ore.Over 50 members of local anti-war and anti-imperialist groups attended a panel discussion here on Feb. 23. The meeting was organized by the Portland Anti-War Coalition, a newly formed group, which is planning a March 14 rally as part of the International Days of Action to Stop U.S. Sanctions and Economic War.The Portland Anti-War Coalition met on Feb. 23 to plan for the March 14 International Days of Action to Stop U.S. Sanctions and Economic War. [WW photo: Lyn Neeley]Keynote speakers were Palestinian Saif Al Khatib; Emma Martinez, a member of the International Migrants Alliance; Jennifer Anderson, from Anakbayan; and Workers World member Joshua Hanks representing the Sanctions Kill coalition. They all announced their common goal of coalition building — with an emphasis on raising class consciousness in the U.S. about imperialist wars — and the need for an anti-war, anti-sanctions movement.Hanks spoke about the specific, targeted acts of war committed by the U.S. in the form of sanctions: “Sanctions are not separate from war but rather play an integral role in modern warfare, extending the theater of combat to economics and diplomacy. Ending sanctions should be a major demand of any anti-war and anti-imperialist movement.”Other speakers expressed similar sentiments. Martinez described the U.S. war machine as being the root cause of forced migration to the U.S. Al Khatib emphasized that any group or movement should be judged by its stance on Israel’s oppression of the Palestinian people.Anderson explained the U.S. influence over the government of the Philippines. She stressed the importance of building a united anti-imperialist movement tied to workers worldwide.This meeting was a strong first step in building the anti-war, anti-sanctionsmovement in Portland. Everyone who attended was committed to building the March 14 demonstration.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Law Index is divided up into sub-indices that track different sectors of the economy, each tied to other key economic reports or indicators. This month, LegalShield spotlights activity on the LegalShield Housing Activity Index, which measures housing construction and which decreased in March but still remains 2.8 percent higher year-over-year. It was up 4.3 percent year-over-year during February.LegalShield’s latest report notes that housing starts remain near post-recession highs in spite of declining slightly beginning in February after surging to their highest level in a decade during January. According to LegalShield, new housing unit authorizations expanded 18 percent and housing permits expanded 6.5 percent during the last 12 months.“While rising interest rates may constrain new home construction to some extent, the combination of low inventories and high prices of existing homes for sale and the underlying strength of the U.S. economy point to stronger building activity in the near term,” explained James Rosseau, LegalShield’s CCO. “However, a key development to monitor is the growing likelihood of trade actions by the United States and its trading partners, particularly China, that could raise the prices of steel, aluminum, and lumber. If this occurs, it could lead to weaker construction investment and cause the LegalShield Housing Activity Index to stagnate or decline.”The other four sub-indices comprising the LegalShield Law Index include the Consumer Financial Stress Index, Real Estate Index, Bankruptcy Index, and the Foreclosure Index. The Real Estate Index, Foreclosure Index, and Bankruptcy Index indicate that existing home sales, foreclosure activity, and bankruptcies, respectively, will likely remain “muted” in the near term, according to LegalShield.The Consumer Financial Stress Index, however, decreased 1.0 point in March to 72.3, the lowest recorded score for that index ever. According to LegalShield, this indicates “that consumer financial health is strong and likely to remain so throughout the first half of 2018.””Overall, consumers are in a good position right now,” Rosseau said. “Although rising consumer debt levels are a potentially worrisome trend in the medium term, LegalShield data, which are based on actual consumer behavior rather than perception, indicate that consumer financial health should remain robust in the months ahead.” April 9, 2018 1,780 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agocenter_img Tagged with: Home Construction home construction prices LegalShield LegalShield Law Index tariffs Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Is Housing Ready for a Rebound?

Florida white supremacist arrested for threatening shooting at Walmart, police say

first_imgOrange County Jail(WINTER PARK, Fla.) — A Florida white supremacist has been arrested for threatening a shooting at a Walmart just days after 22 people were killed at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, in one of the worst mass shootings in the country’s modern history.Richard Clayton, 26, was arrested by Florida Department of Law Enforcement authorities on Friday in Winter Park after making an online threat last week, according to police.On Aug. 6, Clayton allegedly posted on Facebook, “3 more days of probation left then I get my AR-15 back. Don’t go to Walmart next week.”The threat echoes the shooting allegedly carried out by Patrick Crusius in El Paso on Aug. 3. The suspect entered the Walmart and opened fire with an AR-15 assault rifle. Nearly 50 people were hit by the gunfire before the suspect exited the store and was later arrested a short distance away.Police said Crusius, a native of McAllen, Texas, some 10 hours away, admitted to the crime and said he was trying to kill as many Mexicans as he could. He also posted a “manifesto” online espousing white supremacist and anti-immigrant sentiments.Florida authorities said Clayton holds some of the same beliefs.“Clayton appears to believe in the white supremacist ideology and has a history of posting threats on Facebook using fictitious accounts,” Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials said.Clayton was charged with intimidation through a written threat and is being held at Orange County Jail on $15,000 bond.The arrest was among a number of recent cases of police departments nationwide targeting white supremacist threats.Conor Climo, a 23-year-old from Las Vegas, was arrested on Thursday for allegedly possessing bomb-making materials and espousing neo-Nazi and white supremacist ideology with an undercover FBI agent online. He was allegedly planning on fire-bombing a synagogue in Las Vegas and hoped to stage a mass shooting at a gay nightclub as well.A “significant portion,” about one-third, of all domestic terrorism cases involve white supremacist ideology, according to the FBI. Director Christopher Wray testified about the issue in a lengthy hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on July 23, but said the bureau’s “focus is on the violence.”“We don’t investigate ideology, no matter how repugnant,” Wray said.

Be aware of racial bias when employing staff

first_img Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Acode of practice on racial discrimination seeks to clarify rules on theimmigration status of potential employeesEmployers need to tread carefully when considering the immigration status ofjob applicants and new recruits Under the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996, it is a criminal offence toemploy a person who does not have permission to work in the UK. Employers havea defence to such a criminal charge, however, if they make appropriate checksbefore taking on new staff. This involves seeing and copying one or more of arange of specified documents – a valid work permit or a documented NationalInsurance number, for example. Employers also need to take on board the risk of discriminating against jobapplicants and new recruits on racial grounds when making the necessary checks,particularly since the Race Relations Act 1976 specifically coversdiscrimination on grounds of a person’s nationality or national origins. Thepotential for race discrimination claims to arise in the context of immigrationis illustrated by the Employment Appeal Tribunal’s recent decision in IceHockey Super League v Henry, June 2001, IDS Brief 686, . Shane Henry, a Canadian professional ice hockey player, was engaged to playfor the Sheffield Steelers in the UK’s Super League. He had the right to workin the UK without the need for a work permit on the basis of his nationalorigins in the European Union. His contract provided for a four-week probation period, during which hisemployment could be terminated. After arriving in the UK, concerns wereexpressed about his fitness and he was given notice of termination. Henry lodged a claim of race discrimination. In essence, he argued playerslike himself, with national origins in the EU, had been treated less favourablythan players with national origins outside the EU whose contracts did notinclude a probationary clause. An employment tribunal upheld the complaint. It found that the inclusion ofa probationary clause in a player’s contract depended on whether or not herequired a work permit. Since the need for a work permit was based on nationalorigins, it followed that the inclusion of a probationary period in Henry’scontract amounted to race discrimination. The EAT, however, allowed the Super League’s appeal, relying on the Court ofAppeal’s decision in Dhatt v McDonald’s Hamburgers, March1991, IRLR 130. Inthat case, it was held that McDonald’s did not discriminate on racial groundsagainst an Indian national by asking him to show evidence of his right to workin the UK, even though EU nationals were not required to produce such evidence.The correct comparison under the RRA, the Court of Appeal said, was betweenIndian nationals on the one hand and other non-British, non-EU persons ofwhatever nationality on the other. Those two groups were treated alike byMcDonald’s in terms of having to prove their right to work, so there was nodiscrimination. Applying analogous reasoning, the EAT ruled Henry had to compare himselfwith other ice hockey players of whatever racial origin who did not require awork permit to work in the UK. Since all those players had probationary clausesin their contracts, Henry had not suffered any less favourable treatment underthe RRA. Although the employer ultimately escaped liability in Henry’s case, itprovides a salutary reminder of the need to be aware of race discriminationissues when dealing with matters concerning the immigration status of new staffand potential recruits. Last month the Home Secretary issued a statutory Code of Practice on how toavoid race discrimination while ensuring that a new member of staff has theright to work in the UK in line with the Asylum and Immigration Act. The coderecommends that all job applicants should, as far as possible, be treated inthe same way throughout the recruitment process. Employers who behave otherwise– for example, by carrying out checks only on applicants who appear or sound”foreign” – are skating on thin ice.
