Passengers on a Delta Air Lines flight from New York to Ghana had a scare and an unexpected overnight stay in New York late Monday.

The takeoff of Delta Flight 420 from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Kotoka International Airport in Accra, Ghana, was aborted due to an “airspeed indication issue,” according to Delta spokesman Adrian Gee.

Upon landing, the brakes on the Boeing 767 overheated and the plane was met by fire and rescue officials, Gee said.  Flames can be seen in video posted on social media. The 205 passengers evacuated via stairs.

Onboard the flight was Ghanaian actress, Yvonne Nelson who shared a post on Instagram asking the Delta Airline to sit up. She wrote : “My flight! So this happened to us! Thank you Jesus🙏🏽 #Deltapleasesitup” https://youtu.be/_ZtbQ7iCTjA The airline provided hotel accommodations and meal vouchers, and travelers are expected to fly out Tuesday night. “Delta apologizes to our customers onboard Flight 420 for delaying their travel,” Gee said in a statement. “We are working to get customers to their destination as soon as possible.”]]>

Police brutality is slapping someone cooperating and already in cuffs – musician NY Melody

The Ghana Police Service arrested 29 people on Tuesday after dispersing a violent anti-cost protest in Accra with tear gas. The protest took a turn for the worse when protesters engaged in a violent exchange with police, injuring 12 officers and leading to the arrest of some of the protesters.

Following the incident, many Ghanaians, both inside and outside the country, have come out to condemn the police and protesters’ violent actions.

One video that went viral from the incident showed a police officer beating a handcuffed protester who was clearly not resisting arrest. The video sparked an online outrage, with “Be My Love” singer NY Melody among those quick to condemn the officer’s actions.

The musician later posted a video in which he expressed his disappointment at seeing the video. For him, the police officer was abusing his authority, and slapping someone who was already handcuffed was completely unnecessary.

“We live in a democracy, and in a democracy, we have the right to demonstrate when something bothers us.” The police, also known as “Peace Officers,” are supposed to keep the peace and order no matter what environment they are in.”

Imagine what would have happened if the protesters had retaliated in response to the slap. The cops should have known better; they should have some emotional intelligence. “Police brutality is slapping someone already in cuffs who isn’t resisting arrest.” he said.
