cruising toward its first Super Bowl championship leading Tom Brady and the mighty New England Patriots by 25 points TWENTY-FIVE Back in Atlanta the city was all ready to bust loose in a celebration like no other seemingly assured of finally putting to rest its history of sports flops Then it happened The greatest flop of them all This one will take a long long time to get over Brady engineered a stunning comeback guiding the Patriots to a pair of touchdowns and a pair of 2-point conversions that sent the Super Bowl to overtime for the first time At that point it was a mere formality The Patriots won the coin toss Of course The Patriots drove right down the field for the championship-winning touchdown Of course The final: New England 34 Atlanta 28 This one will go down as one of the greatest title games in NFL history That’s little consolation to Atlanta In the A-T-L this will join the Braves blowing a 6-0 lead in Game 4 of the 1996 World Series the Hawks squandering a chance to eliminate Larry Bird and the Boston Celtics in the 1988 NBA playoffs Danny White leading the Dallas Cowboys back from 10 points down in the fourth quarter to beat the Falcons in a 1981 playoff game But really nothing comes close to this level of sporting disappointment The Falcons spent twoquarters playing with the swagger and confidence of a team that wasn’t the least bit concerned about their city’s history Even in the closing minutes after the Patriots made a game of it Atlanta was in position to put the victory away when Julio Jones made a stunning catch along the sideline going to rip the ball away from a defender and somehow getting both feet down before tumbling out of bounds at the New England 22 With under 5 minutes remaining and the Falcons still up 28-20 all they needed to do was run three more plays and set up for a field goal by Pro Bowl kicker Matt Bryant that would finally put the Patriots away Devonta Freeman was thrown for a 1-yard loss but that was OK But then instead of another run Ryan dropped back to pass He was thrown for a 12-yard loss and just like that the Falcons were on the fringe of Bryant’s range Any hope for a field goal was lost when Jake Matthews was called for a holding penalty that set Atlanta back another 10 yards Ryan followed with an incomplete pass and the Falcons were forced to punt it back to Brady and a Patriots team that was suddenly brimming with bravado It wasn’t the least bit shocking when they marched right down the field 91 yards for James White’s short touchdown run It wasn’t the least bit shocking when Brady hooked up with Danny Amendola on a 2-point pass that tied the game with 57 seconds remaining It wasn’t the least bit shocking when the Falcons without any timeouts failed to muster anything on their final offensive possession It wasn’t the least bit shocking when the Patriots won the toss and drove down the field one more time 75 yards in just eight plays and finished off the Falcons with a 2-yard touchdown run The city of Atlanta had seen it all before For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Julioribeiro | Published: August 13 2010 2:27 am Related News Corruption has permeated every aspect of public lifeand the Indian Express report about senior IPS officers in Pune setting up their wives and sons in the private security business (Via wives & sonstop Pune cops run private security agencies IEAugust 7) is a reflection of the rot that has set into the police force in Maharashtra in the last two decades Most officers do not care to follow the rules because they know that they will get away with the help of their political patrons The ultimate victims are the peoplethe security of whose lives and property rests in the hands of those who are more concerned about making a quick buck Some police officerswho are capable of better resultshave been stymied by the home departments attempts to run the police forcea task which the bureaucrats are not trained to perform Maharashtra Home Minister RR Patil has appointed some outstanding leaders like Sivanandhan as the states director general of policeSanjeev Dayal as Mumbais police commissionerJaved Ahmed as Navi Mumbai police commissioner and Meera Borwankar in Puneetc But unless they are given a free hand to discipline their subordinates and make them accountable to the people and the lawthey will not succeed Internal postings and transfers of deputy commissioners and belowparticularly of the senior inspectors in charge of the police stationsshould be left solely to the police chiefs The security climate will improve only if and when this happens To restore discipline in the forcestart with the basics Senior leaders must set examples Service rules do not permit officers to do private business Camouflaging this activity by starting such businesses in the names of wives and children is not permissible After allit is the officers position that will influence the success of his wifes or sons enterprise Alsocompetitors will be deprived of a level playing field When I joined the service as a young probationer in 1953we knew instinctively that certain lines could not be crossed Those who broke these rules were marginalised For examplewe could not use official cars except for work Our wives and children could not ride in them except on the rare occasion when the wife was accompanying the husband to an official function Nobody broke those rules Noweverything goes Not only are vehicles routinely misused by wives and even children but officers keep more police orderlies at their home than they are entitled to and use them for work far removed from their prescribed duties Some officials retain these orderlies after retirement and I know of two very senior officers who have retained even their government flats and cars long after their retirement Nobody objects because of the prevailing climate of permissivenessbut the lowest-ranked policemen do notice these transgressions And worsesee them as license for themselves With what moral authority can the home department enforce rules and regulations if otherswho are not so influentialalso follow suit Departmental and political control has become lax As young additional superintendents of policewe used to camp at the sites of serious crimes for days together in remote villagesand we would not dare to return without coming to some conclusion lest our supervising officers took adverse notice I am told that todaythese rules are observed mostly in the breach I dread the time when these young officers rise to senior positions and are called upon to enforce discipline The trickle-down effecton a body of men entrusted with the security of the life and property of citizensis devastating It is important that the old élan of the force is restoredby insisting that rules and regulations be observedstarting from the very top Only then will ordinary policemen become more alert and dedicated to

Mumbai | Updated: November 23 2016 3:51 am With a total of over 2 lakh personnel police deployments are planned to be backed by “complete control of infantry” Express Archive Top News The Maharashtra home department has rolled out an asset management plan adopting corporate practices as it seeks to streamline integrate and account for the assets of the state police such as land ammunition and other moveables besides human resources in what appears to be a first-of-its-kind exercise in the country For now the department has given a working title ‘Asset Management’ involving open interface across the 45 police units in the state along with sensitive combat arms of the force with potential impact in deployments and policing Watch What Else Is In The News On Tuesday commissioners and nodal units of the rural police across the state sat through an early morning video conference where the contours of the project were explained to them including corporate jargon such as “verticals” and “resource allocation” While tenders will be designed to attract companies in the IT sector it is also touted to be the first home department project in which there will be elbow room specifically to incorporate system designs and support environment from Indian start-ups According to officials there was a brainstorming for the project two months ago — soon after the CCTV project was rolled out to look for solutions to larger issues — with Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis who heads the department Deadlines were set at the meeting and the basic outline given to the consultants was to “adopt practices that help the police to do policing” efficiently without being burdened by administrative lapses The interface — divided into three heads — will see units assembling all their resources in a centrally managed live database under the heads of ‘land’ ‘assets’ and ‘human resources’ The Maharashtra Police now has 5000 acres of land spread across its units in the form of training grounds academies barracks storage police offices combat units and housing The land interface which will be supported by GIS mapping is expected to be monitored in real time to ensure zero encroachments One of the issues plaguing the police is the lack of a database of occupancy of police homes that are available The project will help to obtain an active feedback on the number of police personnel who are spread across units and who need a house In most crowded cities and towns in Maharashtra the fastest urbanising state in the country the police personnel stay at least two hours away from their police jurisdiction with the delay to report also adding to the pressure The most interactive aspect of the interface also includes a special section of all the available resources at hand be it combat or rescue “This is essentially to stop leakages” explains K P Bakshi Additional Chief Secretary (Home) citing the examples of cartridges and tear gas “Suppose Kolhapur needs bullets or tear gas and you have one full stock with Jalgaon which is nearing expiry This asset interface will flag the stock and we can use it in real time” he says According to Bakshi indents will be fresh and deadlines for purchase “more emergency oriented” A senior official from the Maharashtra director general of police’s office who is involved in the exercise also says the project will help in “adding value to the resources” “In combat fields innovation keeps defence alive In asset audits you can spot a better resource giving optimum results which will help in planning at the nodal stage The patterns always show and the stock which is left unused for a longer period could also raise awareness on its needs This of course is not meant for ammunitions of a higher scale which will see active rotations and gets calibrated in sensitive surroundings” he says Close to 29000 vehicles of the state police — with the Commissioner of Mumbai alone holding charge for 5000 vehicles — may now be utilised better An official from the motor vehicles department says the auditing of assets will also help better servicing and ensure obsoletes are ticked off within three budget years as they are seen as liabilities with most combat vehicles components required to be sourced from abroad There are several units that also have JCBs and cranes under them which can be moved to areas where natural disasters require additional mobile deployment The field visit findings conducted by the panel empanelled by the home department indicate the absolute dependence on “manual recording” with no knowledge of available resources across the neighboring jurisdictions The audits will be designed to ensure “life expectancy of each resource is optimised” In terms of human resource — the core of policing — with a total of over 2 lakh personnel the deployments are planned to be backed by “complete control of infantry” says an official On a very basic level the records will show the work history of the personnel marking the dates he took leave and also allow linking his work hours with police events On a broader scale with an integrated health registry backing this interface the nodal heads can also make better decisions on the manner to employ the personnel “There is no science behind deployments now This will allow it” says Bakshi The individual’s fitness and training is also expected to be added as the interface matures with deployments further linked to availability of ammunition at real time For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top News team!Oscar Pistorius gets gang
