The Premier League has surpassed La Liga to become Europe's best league
The Premier League has surpassed La Liga to become Europe’s best league after Manchester United’s 6-2 win over Roma in the first leg of the Europa League on Thursday which propelled the English Premier League to the top of Europe’s rankings, according to the Daily Mail.

With United’s Europa League victory, the Premier League has taken over the first spot in the UEFA rankings for the first time in nine years, dropping LaLiga to second place.

Since winning the Champions League and the Europa League, England and the Premier League now have a coefficient ranking of 98.997.
Manchester City and Chelsea are the Champions League leaders, while Manchester United and Arsenal are battling it out in the Europa League.

The English top-flight has reportedly outperformed LaLiga in three of the last five seasons, including two Premier League teams in both the Champions League and Europa League semi-finals.

Spain will not be able to catch England despite seeing Real Madrid and Villarreal in the Champions League and Europa League, respectively.

Even Champions League and Europa League victories will not be enough to lift Spain and LaLiga out of England’s shadow.
Since the distance between the two countries will widen as the season progresses, this is the case.

As of right now, Spain has a coefficient ranking of 97.425. Though England’s score has surpassed that of their 2018-19 season, it could also surpass Spain’s all-time high coefficient score of 2015-2016.

When Real Madrid defeated Atletico Madrid in the Champions League and Sevilla defeated Liverpool in the Europa League, Spain set a new record.

The fact that England has risen to the top of the UEFA rankings would have little bearing on the number of Champions League spots available to any nation.

TABLE With UEFA COEFFICIENTS:

1. England has 98.997 points and in the first position.
2. Spain with a score of 97.425
3. Italy (75.153 points)
4. Germany is in fourth place with a score of 73.570.
5. In 5th place with 56.081 points is France

Gov. Andy Beshear signs new bill on Police Raid after Black Woman’s death

Published

on

Kentucky’s Gov. Andy Beshear signs new bill on Police raid into state law on Friday that restricts the use of “no-knock” police raids to incidents involving serious crime. The new legislation was enacted in response to the murder of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman who was shot and killed by police.

The proposed legislation comes in response to the death of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman who was shot and killed by police during a botched drug search in March 2020. Taylor’s death sparked national protests.

“This is a significant improvement. It will save lives and drive us forward,” Beshear, a Democrat, said at the bill signing, which was attended by Taylor’s mother, a tearful Tamika Palmer, at the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage in Louisville.

Beshear said that he was signing the bill “to ensure that no other mother goes through the agony Tamika Palmer has gone through.”

The current legislation prohibits unannounced, late-night drug searches such as the one that killed Taylor while she slept. There were no drugs found, and it was later determined that the police searched the wrong spot.

The measure, which Beshear signed into law, restricts no-knock searches by officers to incidents including violent offences such as robbery, robbery, or assault, and prohibits arrests between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. It is not a complete ban on the police tactic that Taylor’s family had hoped for.

“While it is not the complete legislation that they desired in terms of a complete moratorium on no-knock warrants, they are pleased that this is a start and a victory in a highly split General Assembly,” the family’s counsel, Lonita Baker, told The Associated Press.

While no charges were brought against the officers who shot into Taylor’s apartment, the Louisville police department dismissed two officers participating in the raid.

The Louisville chief of police announced his resignation amid public outrage, and the city of Louisville suspended the use of no-knock warrants indefinitely.
In other news, the state of Virginia banned all no-knock warrants last year. In Florida and Oregon, no-knock warrants are not permitted.

The city of Louisville decided to settle a wrongful death case in September by paying Taylor’s relatives $12 million and all via a report on Aljazeera at the time.
