Professor bought one-way ticket to Rome before cathedral arson attempt: Police

first_imgEssex County Sheriff’s Office(NEW YORK) — A part-time philosophy professor was charged with attempted arson on Thursday after he entered a historic cathedral with gasoline and lighter fluid, investigators said.Marc Lamparello, a former director of music at a New Jersey Roman Catholic Church, was arrested at the historic St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City on Wednesday night after security stopped him with two cans of gasoline, lighter fluid and butane lighters, police said. Sources with the New York City Police Department told ABC News that he also purchased a one-way ticket to Rome, which was scheduled to depart from Newark, New Jersey, on Thursday evening.Lamparello, 37, was charged with attempted arson, reckless endangerment and some violations of city codes. He told police that he was taking a shortcut through church to reach his minivan, which he claimed had run out of gas.“His basic story was that he was cutting through the cathedral to get to Madison Avenue, that his car had run out of gas,” NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller told reporters at a press conference Wednesday night. “We took a look at the vehicle. It was not out of gas and at that point he was taken into custody.”He was also arrested and charged with resisting arrest, trespassing and disorderly conduct on Monday after he allegedly refused to leave Sacred Heart Cathedral in Newark.Investigators said he was sitting in the cathedral for about an hour and refused to leave when the church was closing. When police officers ordered him to leave, he told them he still wanted to pray. Officers said his intentions weren’t immediately clear, though one police source noted “the timing is odd,” given that it occurred two days after the destructive fire at the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Authorities said Thursday the fire at Notre Dame was likely caused by an electrical short circuit.Miller said additional security had been added in the recent days after the Paris fire.“This is an indicator of something that would be very suspicious,” he said.Investigators are still working to determine a possible motive, but Miller said he doesn’t appear to be connected to any terrorist groups.Lamparello is a doctoral candidate in philosophy at the City University of New York. He also teaches at several colleges and universities, including Brooklyn College, Seton Hall University and Lehman College, which said it was working to terminate him in light of the charges.“The individual was hired at Lehman College during this academic year and was a part-time online instructor this semester,” Lehman College spokesperson Sarah Ramsey told New York ABC station WABC-TV. “We are taking the appropriate steps to terminate the individual’s employment with the college.”The famous cathedral, which opened its doors nearly 200 years ago, serves as seat of the New York Archdiocese.“I’ve come to trust what we’ve got at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, not that we can ever take it for granted,” Cardinal Timothy Dolan, archbishop of New York, said Thursday. “Last night proves that it works. We’ve got a very well trained interior security staff, we’ve got the constant help of the NYPD, which usually has an officer on the block for ready assistance, we’ve got the ready attention of the FDNY.”“Does that mean it’s fail safe? No, but that’s why we come to church to pray for God’s protection,” he added. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Oxford team reaches final of WUDC

first_imgThe Oxford A team reached the Grand Final of the 2015 World University Debating Championships, held this year in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The tournament is the world’s largest debating competition, and uses the British parliamentary debating format.  Oxford entered 4 teams into the Open category for native English speakers, alongside 367 other teams.However, Oxford did not manage to win, losing to the Sydney A team in a debate on the motion, “This House believes that humanitarian organisations should, and should be allowed to, give funding, resources or services to illegal armed groups when this is made a condition for access to vulnerable civilians.” BPP A and Harvard A were the other teams Oxford faced off against in the final. Nonetheless, Oxford A had to get through 9 preliminary rounds and 4 knockout rounds in order to reach the final, arguing on topics ranging from Syria to mental illness. This was better than in the last two years, when the furthest Oxford reached was the semi-finals.Oxford also performed well in the individual speaker rankings, with the two members of Oxford A, Patrick Bateman and Tasha Rachman, coming 10th and 16th respectively. Oxford B debater Nat Ware matched Rachman in the speaker rankings, also coming 16th, whilst his partner, Fergus Peace, came 26th.Oxford finalist Tasha Rachman was pleased with Oxford’s performance, saying, “As a point of institutional pride, I would have liked to win it for Oxford but, on a personal note, the funny thing is that being knocked out of the semis is gutting but being a grand finalist and losing is totally fine. I am jubilant. My only note of regret is that Cambridge A was, in my opinion, knocked out far too soon, as they are both brilliant debaters and deserved, at the very least, to be in the Grand Final. “The tournament was, as ever, a delight. The previous WUDC in Chennai had serious logistical issues that meant that many people do not look back on it fondly. On a personal note, I have enjoyed every WUDC that I have been at, because ultimately debating is far more than a hobby for me, it is an opportunity to hang out with a group of people whom I adore (the other Oxford debaters) and a wider community filled with brilliant, clever and funny people. This tournament was no exception.”The other Oxford finalist, Patrick Bateman, ironically an alumnus of Sydney University, echoed this statement, commenting, “The tournament was a great showcase for the Oxford Union, with three out of our four teams, along with every one of our judges, reaching the knockout stages of the competition. This is a rare achievement at Worlds, so we’re very proud of what the contingent has accomplished. “Disappointing though it was not to win, it was simply a pleasure to represent Oxford up there with someone so profoundly talented. Sydney University’s win was a well-deserved one, and if we had to lose to anyone, I’m glad it was to my alma mater!” Debaters at Sydney were of course delighted with the result, with the Director of Debates at Sydney University Union Sarah Mourney telling Cherwell, “The tournament was extremely fun. It was also incredibly exciting that we brought home the world’s trophy: it makes all the time and effort our teams put into training worthwhile! The tournament was quite a lot better run than Chennai last year, for instances the buses ferrying us around had aircon and did not have Mosquitos. All the team that made Malaysia World’s a reality were awesome and you could see how tirelessly they worked to make the tournament a spectacular experience.”last_img read more
