13 REASONS-WHY NOT-A MUST READ/SHARE

https://oddballodysseyblog.wordpress.com/2017/05/10/13-reasons-why-not/

EXCERPT....
"The idea for this blog post came as a response to the controversial Netflix series “13 Reasons Why,” which follows the aftermath of a teenage girl’s suicide and the tapes she left behind to each person who contributed to her death. The series has been widely criticized for its handling of the sensitive material. Geared toward a teenage audience, it does not discuss mental health or suicide prevention, and almost presents suicide as a way to have your voice heard.
So, here are 13 reasons why NOT to kill yourself…"

YOU HAVE RIGHT TO REMAIN SILENT

A 13 yr old boy being questioned by officials without a lawyer, nor a parent.

"Take Action: http://fairsentencingforyouth.org/mir... Currently in California, children—no matter how young— can waive their Miranda rights. When law enforcement conducts a custodial interrogation, they are required to recite basic constitutional rights to the individual, known as Miranda rights, and secure a waiver of those rights before proceeding. The waiver must be voluntarily, knowingly, and intelligently made. Miranda waivers by juveniles present distinct issues. Recent advances in cognitive science research have shown that the capacity of youth to grasp legal rights is less than that of an adult. This is especially true for very young, developmentally disabled, or cognitively delayed children, and for those with mental health problems."

Trying children as adults a failure of justice in North Carolina

http://www.newsobserver.com/opinion/op-ed/article88948862.html

A very important and informative article, Indeed, "children" are NOT adults, yet they are treated as such, when it comes to the courts. A "change" so desperately needed for "children", IMO

KRISTA MCDANIEL~~~SO I COULD LEARN HOW TO FLY, I AM SOMEBODY




"I would have been a "nobody" without you, over the years, I was lost, abandoned by officials, society & many of my own family, my own dad disowned me when he found out about my baby, I was only 14, pregnant, had my baby at age 15, then caught up with wrong evil adults at just turning 16,landed me in prison for 30 yrs with NO chance of parole. Today I am in my 14th yr of that 30 yrs, I turn 30 yrsof age in Aug, growing up in prison, my baby is now 14 yrs of age. STILL in prison due to the "no parole status" and the SC law "the hand of one is the hand of ALL." I have my up and down days, but overall, I am so fortunate to have you in my life, for many here, have absolutely NO ONE, with no visits, no mail, no canteen funds, no nothing, feeling so hopeless with severe/chronic depression.

 I will be forever thankful you took me under your wing, so I could learn how to fly. I cherish these moments you have shared, as part of your life, Thanks to YOU, I AM SOMEBODY.....
