WASHINGTON (WISH) — Two Indiana women charged in connection with the Jan. 6 siege on the United States Capitol admitted on Facebook they were among some of the first people inside the Capitol building that day.
Dona Bissey and Anna Morgan-Lloyd, both of the Bloomfield area, were charged with knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, and violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.
According to federal court documents, both Bissey and Morgan-Lloyd posted on Facebook that they were inside the Capitol on Jan. 6, with Morgan-Lloyd posting that it was the “best day ever” and Bissey posting it was “the most exciting day of my life.”
Authorities in Greene County initially recognized Morgan-Lloyd as a person who posted about the Capitol siege on Facebook when she visited the Greene County Sheriff’s Department on Jan. 22 to obtain a firearms permit, according to court documents. GCSD reviewed Morgan-Lloyd’s public Facebook posts and identified Bissey as being with her at the Capitol during the time of the riots. GCSD then alerted the FBI.
The FBI had also received tips from two other witnesses regarding Morgan-Lloyd’s and Bissey’s presence at the Capitol on Jan. 6. Law enforcement officers were able to confirm their identities by comparing their Indiana state-issued driver’s license photos to a photo of the two inside the Capitol that was posted on Facebook
Four other Hoosiers have been charged in connection with the deadly Capitol siege. Those charged include:

The post New apartments include financial literacy class appeared first on WISH-TV | Indianapolis News | Indiana Weather | Indiana...
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — New affordable housing at East 38th Street and Broadway Street will provide a roof over tenants’ heads, but also help them keep it there.
Circle City Property Management and Development (CCPMD) and the Indianapolis Neighborhood Housing Partnership are teaming up to provide financial literacy classes to all residents of “Broadway Park,” a new 40-unit apartment complex.
“It’s no secret that in Indianapolis and in places across the country there’s a tremendous housing crisis we’re dealing with,” said CCPMD principal Joe White.
He explained that on one end are people “economically well-positioned” to purchase homes, and on the other end are “people who have been forgotten.”
“What we’ve been dreaming about for Broadway Park is the opportunity to create not just a safe, affordable and quality housing for Indianapolis residents, but to also create a space for things like job training, financial literacy coaching, mental and physical health services, and ultimately be well positioned to purchase a home,” said White.
His plan is to host a financial literacy class in the community center portion of the complex, along with other classes, with the goal of helping residents eventually own their own homes.
White started writing the curriculum for the financial literacy class a few years ago because of his experience and passion for helping people reach financial independence.
“There were thousands of adults in our city and cities across the state that are hopeless. They felt like there’s a world of opportunity and there are people out there accessing jobs and training and home ownership,” said White. “These folks felt like they didn’t have access.”
He says access is key, and so insisted this property be close to IndyGo’s Red Line and the Monon Trail, as well as grocery stores, good schools, and public parks.
Several condemned buildings currently stand on the property, and White says an analysis proved the buildings cannot be saved. The new apartments will fit the style of the neighborhood, with final exterior decor to be decided by the CCMPD, Historic Watson Park, and the city of Indianapolis, he says.
The complex is scheduled to break ground in spring 2021.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Two men died after an interstate crash on the city’s northwest side Thursday night.
According to Indiana State Police, authorities were called to the westbound lanes of I-465 near Michigan Road on the city’s northwest side Thursday just before midnight on reports of a crash.
Arriving emergency crews found a full-size cargo van had crashed into the back of a semi. Both the driver and passenger of the van were found unresponsive and trapped inside the van.
The passenger of the van, identified as Brenden Harper, 25, of Indianapolis, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the van, Andrew Blackwell, 33, of Greenwood, was taken to a nearby hospital where he later died.
The driver of the semi, Raimundo Luis, of Miami, Florida, was treated and released at the scene.
Police say the semi was stopped on the right shoulder due to a mechanical issue at the time of the crash. The semi’s emergency lights were activated. Investigators say the cargo van was driven off the road and crashed into the back of the trailer.
Traffic was restricted in the westbound lanes of I-465 for four hours while investigators worked the scene. All lanes are now reopened.

TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — Violet light bathed the club stage as 300 people, masked and socially distanced, erupted in gentle applause. For the first time since the pandemic began, Israeli musician Aviv Geffen stepped to his electric piano and began to play for an audience seated right in front of him.
“A miracle is happening here tonight,” Geffen told the crowd.
Still, the reanimating experience Monday night above a shopping mall north of Tel Aviv night was not accessible to everyone. Only people displaying a “green passport” that proved they had been vaccinated or had recovered from COVID-19 could get in.
The highly controlled concert offered a glimpse of a future that many are longing for after months of COVID-19 restrictions. Governments say getting vaccinated and having proper documentation will smooth the way to travel, entertainment and other social gatherings in a post-pandemic world.
But it also raises the prospect of further dividing the world along the lines of wealth and vaccine access, creating ethical and logistical issues that have alarmed decision-makers around the world.
Inside Israel, green passports or badges obtained through an app is the coin of the realm. The country recently reached agreements with Greece and Cyprus to recognize each other’s green badges, and more such tourism-boosting accords are expected.
Anyone unwilling or unable to get the jabs that confer immunity will be “left behind,” said Health Minister Yuli Edelstein.
“It’s really the only way forward at the moment,” Geffen said in an interview with The Associated Press.
The checks at the club’s doors, which admitted only those who could prove they are fully vaccinated, allowed at least a semblance of normality.
“People can’t live their lives in the new world without them,” he said. “We must take the vaccines. We must.”
The vaccine is not available to everyone in the world, whether due to supply or cost. And some people don’t want it, for religious or other reasons. In Israel, a country of 9.3 million people, only about half the adult population has received the required two doses.
There is new pressure from the government to encourage vaccinations. Israeli lawmakers on Wednesday passed a law allowing the Health Ministry to disclose information on people who have yet to be vaccinated. Under the policy, names can be released to the ministries of education, labor, social affairs and social services, as well as local governments, “with the purpose of allowing these bodies to encourage people to get vaccinated.”
The government is appealing to the emotional longing for the company of others — in Israel’s storied outdoor markets, at concerts like Geffen’s, and elsewhere.
“With the Green Pass, doors just open for you. You could go out to restaurants, work out at the gym, see a show,” read an announcement on Feb. 21, the day much of the economy reopened after a six-week shutdown.
Then it raised a question at the center of the global quest to conquer the pandemic that has hobbled economies and killed nearly 2.5 million people:
“How to get the pass? Go and get vaccinated right now.”
It’s that simple in Israel, which has enough vaccine to inoculate everyone over 16, although the government has been criticized for sharing only tiny quantities with Palestinians in the occupied West Bank and Gaza.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said this week he intends to send excess vaccine to some of the country’s allies. Israel’s attorney general said Thursday night the plan has been frozen while he reviews the legalities.
Most countries don’t have enough vaccine, highlighting the fraught ethical landscape of who can get it and how to lift the burden of COVID-19.
“The core human rights principle is equity and nondiscrimination,” said Lawrence Gostin, a Georgetown University professor and director of the World Health Organization Collaborating Center on National and Global Health Law.
“There’s a huge moral crisis in equity globally because in high income countries like Israel or the United States or the EU countries, we’re likely to get to herd immunity by the end of this year,” he said. “But for many low-income countries, most people won’t be vaccinated for many years. Do we really want to give priority to people who already have so many privileges?”
It’s a question dogging the international community as wealthier countries begin to gain traction against the coronavirus and some of its variants.
Last April, the initiative known as COVAX was formed by the WHO, with the initial goal of getting vaccines to poor countries at roughly the same time shots were being rolled out in rich countries. It has missed that target, and 80% of the 210 million doses administered worldwide have been given in only 10 countries, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said this week.
As those countries begin vaccinations, wealthier nations are starting to talk about “green passport” logistics, security, privacy and policy.
The British government said it is studying the possibility of issuing some kind of “COVID status certification” that could be used by employers and organizers of large events as it prepares to ease lockdown restrictions this year.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the policy could cause problems.
“We can’t be discriminatory against people who, for whatever reason, can’t have the vaccine,” he said.
Many countries around Europe are scrambling to develop their own vaccine certification systems to help revive summer travel, generating a risk that different systems won’t work properly across the continent’s borders.
“I think there is huge potential for not working well together,” said Andrew Bud, CEO of facial biometrics company iProov, which is testing its digital vaccination passport technology within the U.K.’s National Health Service.
But the technical knots around vaccine passports may be the easier ones to solve, he said.
The bigger challenges “are principally ethical, social, political and legal. How to balance the fundamental rights of citizens … with the benefits to society.”
