National "DNA" Warehouse Bill passes/Another violation of "human rights"

National “DNA warehouse” bill passesWednesday, April 30th, 2008

AAPS Passing the House of Representatives on a voice vote, S 1858 has been sent to President Bush for signature The Newborn Genetic Screening bill was passed by the Senate last December The bill violates the US Constitution and the Nuremberg Code, writes Twila Brase, president of the Citizen’s Council on Health Care (CCHC) “The DNA taken at birth from every citizen is essentially owned by the government, and every citizen becomes a potential subject of government-sponsored genetic research,” she states “It does not require consent and there are no requirements to inform parents about the warehousing of their child’s DNA for the purpose of genetic research Already, in Minnesota, the state health department reports that 42,210 children of the 780,000 whose DNA is housed in the Minnesota ‘DNA warehouse’ have been subjected to genetic research without their parents’ knowledge or consent”The federal government lacks the Constitutional authority as well as the competence to develop a newborn screening program, states Rep Ron Paul, MD (R-TX) He states that all hospitals will probably scrap their own newborn testing program and adopt the federal model, whatever its flaws, to avoid the loss of federal funding
“Drafters of the legislation made no effort to ensure that these newborn screening programs do not violate the privacy rights of parents and children,” Dr Paul noted
Ms Brase has called on President Bush to veto the bill

Murder of Jacob Ind/Horrific Abuse by both parents

I have followed Jacob's case for the past 10 years, Life with NO chance of parole ever, is barbaric and inhumane, is state sanctioned child abuse, indeed children should be punished for their crimes, but the very taking of their lives too, is state sanctioned murder!! One must READ the book, written by Mary Ellen Johnson, to fully "understand" why Jacob "snapped", involved in the murder of his parents!! I have this book, have read it several times, a very heart wrenching story/episodes of frequent sexual abuse by "both parents"!! Book is out on loan at the present time to another advocate, but anyone who is interested in reading this horrific story of Jacob, please email me at kidsincourt1 @ roadrunner.com I will be glad to send you the book to read, on loan, with your "promise" to return the book to me after reading it. Jacob as all children, deserves a "chance" he was never given, even from his own parents. Juvenile justice laws are long overdue to be re investigated, with "compassion and mercy", for the children "they were"!!

(13)Michael Lewis/LIFE in Prison/as an ADULT/Murder he did not commit

CHILDREN ARE "NOT" ADULTS, another one of many cases, that should have NEVER been in an "adult" court of law!!! This could have been "YOUR CHILD". Present day laws continue to "destroy" children, instead of the "offer" to "help" and "rehabilitate", for them to become a "productive" member of society. Where is the justice? when it is "just us"?

Prosecutors/"Absolute Immunity" IS TOO MUCH/where is the JUSTICE??

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,352004,00.html

Absolute Immunity Is Too Much

A "MUST" READ OF FULL ARTICLE...............where is the JUSTICE??

(excerpts)

It's a recipe for disaster.

In the case Imbler v. Pachtman 1976, the U.S. Supreme Court carved out a gaping exception for prosecutors. Prosecutors have what's known as "absolute immunity" from civil rights suits, provided they're acting in their capacity as prosecutors. Few people enjoy such protections in their own line of work.
But this complete shield from accountability is especially problematic when we're talking about prosecutors. It's a job that's already plagued by incentive problems—unfortunately, we tend to measure a prosecutor's performance based on how many people he's able to throw in jail, not necessarily by how well he metes out justice.
Rarely, for example, does a prosecutor get public recognition for the cases he doesn't take. So we have people in a position where they have the enormous power to take away someone's freedom, incentives nudging them to err on the side of prosecuting aggressively, and absolute immunity from lawsuits should they overstep their bounds........

Remembering Mary Ellen/ A travesty of CHILD ABUSE

My name is Mary Ellen McCormack. I don't know how old I am... I have never had but one pair of shoes, but I can't recollect when that was. I have no shoes or stocking this winter... I have never had on a particle of flannel. My bed at night is only a piece of carpet, stretched on the floor underneath a window, and I sleep in my little undergarment, with a quilt over me. I am never allowed to play with any children or have any company whatever. Mamma has been in the habit of whipping and beating me almost every day. She used to whip me with a twisted whip, a raw hide. The whip always left black and blue marks on my body. I have now on my head two black and blue marks which were made by mamma with the whip, and a cut on the left side of my forehead which was made by a pair of scissors in mamma's hand. She struck me with the scissors and cut me. I have no recollection of ever having been kissed, and have never been kissed by mamma. I have never been taken on my mamma's lap, or caressed or petted. I have never dared to speak to anybody, because if I did I would get whipped. Whenever mamma went out I was locked up in the bedroom... I have no recollection of ever being in the street in my life. Another excerpt from this amazing and sad story. Read the entire story http://www.fortunecity.com/meltingpot/macau/1192/id49.htm

Second Chance Act?? What about the Children??

http://www.tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080417/COLUMNIST0107/804170368/1008/OPINION01

WHAT ABOUT OUR NATION'S CHILDREN???

The above article is a move in the right direction, but children are NOT being offered a "second chance"....until the present day laws governing children, is reformed/investigated, there will be more and more children "destroyed" by this gov't. So many children are given much harsher, colder, longer sentences than adults, who have comitted similiar crimes


JUVENILE JUSTICE REFORM IS IMPERATIVE/CRITICAL to help save our nation's children from DOOM AND DESTRUCTION. Incarcerated "children" are thrown away and forgotten by this gov't. We must NEVER BE SILENT to these atrocties!!!

"Children" deserves a "CHANCE", to become a "productive member" of society, but this gov't does not even "offer it".

The Ignorant and the Negative

Many negative, vengeful comments on these articles, after the announcement of the refusal of the U. S. supreme court to hear/review Chris Pittman's case.

One person stated..."I believe he should be executed" ??

This might be so easy to say, being it was NOT YOUR child, tho punishment is certainly warranted, it takes a cold, no hearted person, to want to "execute" a "child". Educating oneself in the world of antidepressants/drugs will enlighten your brain cells, get the case facts, he was ONLY 12, and is NOT a monster. ADULTS in his world contributed to where he is today. Look who prescribed that drug, an adult!! Look who forced him to take this drug, an adult!! Where were the ADULTS?? in his world??? when he needed them most. There is NO way he was in his "right" mind, when this tragedy occurred. To contribute to the "destruction" of this child, is indeed a CRIME itself. What a cold, cruel, heartless society!!!

ALL children deserve the right to be "protected from harm, but society feels it is all ok, for incarcerated children to be beaten, molested, sexually assaulted and raped often, and even murdered behind bars....what a barbaric society we are forced to live in!!!!

U.S. Supreme Court refused view/hear Pittman child's appeal










U.S. Supreme Court Won't Hear Appeal/CHRISTOPHER PITTMAN

http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5g1ah7HoLXbu1xceS9ACNwuENmNLgD901MK000

COURT REFUSED TO REVIEW CHILD'S APPEAL

Please be sure to look at the comments section on this url link, unfortunately most are so negative and vengeful.
http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/04/14/national/main4013473.shtml?mpid=1732#ccmm

There will come a day, the real truth and justice will prevail in Chris''s case. All the negative, bitterness,vengeful statements on that article, are worthless, those who have been involved and followed this case from day one, know and still support Chris.The truth will come, and justice will prevail for this "child". Many statements sounds like nothing more than vigilantes, but be assured, if this was YOUR child, you, too, would want "help and support", NOT vengeance! Get educated and know the facts about drugs given/forced upon children and the possible affects, could be devastating, as was in this case.

Chris never took the drugs "voluntarily", he was forced to take them by ADULTS, tried as an ADULT, sentenced as an ADULT, tell me this is NOT "child abuse"!!! Since when is a 12 yr old "child", automatically an ADULT???
Please reference the "educational resources" links, for details of Chris's case.
Request that you review Chris's petition, sign it, and share with others in your world

May God help us ALL..........WHERE IS THE "JUSTICE"??? Chris's case is one of many, get educated, read the over 2300 cases on http://www.ssristories.com/ A reality, a real eye opener.

Forgotten Children/No HOPE/NO NOTHING

What more can we do, in campaigning for these children? In this election year, it is imperative to send our support letters to the officials, media at the local, state and federal levels, speaking OUT about these many atrocities our nation's children face. Many children will literally DIE in prison, UNLESS present day laws are investigated and revised/change. These children have NO hope, offered NO redemption, NO counseling, NO rehabiliation, guidance, NO offers to help them, become "productive members of society". These are "throw away" children, and forgotten by society. PLEASE join us in getting letters and contact OUT to anyone and everyone that possibly might listen. WE MUST NEVER BE "SILENT" I would like to see YOUR thoughts, suggestions, feedback, tell us what is on YOUR mind please.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Only a “child”
The moon so high in the sky, Holding secrets the courts still deny,
They know you are “only” a child, Yet hold firm the sentences, while the world sighs.
No compassion, mercy is ever held, While weeping alone in their private cells.
Mistakes made as a “child”, While the courts still in denial
Charged as adult, no chance of parole Holding this young life, with it forever on hold.
They dream of better tomorrows, Only left in such desolate sorrows.
You can help change this destruction,
With education and a little instruction.
The next child could really be yours,
What will you do?, when you finally get the “score”?
Now is the time to speak out, & have no doubt,
Your voice is needed, for this child’s way out!!

Prosecutors IGNORE Fundamental Truths

"CHILDREN" ARE "NOT" ADULTS

PLEASE READ FULL ARTICLE
http://www.venturacountystar.com/news/2008/apr/13/prosecutors-ignore-fundamental-truth]

We have two parallel criminal justice systems — one for adults, the other for children. To say that a 14-year-old deserves to be in the adult system is to put the bitter root of a falsehood into the mix at the very beginning. No palatable justice can come of it.

— Neil B. Quinn is a former Ventura County chief deputy public defender, now retired and in private practice.

System Too Harsh/State turns their back on KIDS

PLEASE READ FULL ARTICLE.........

http://theonlineedge.net/04-12-08/4304120802.html

(excerpts)

One caring person can go a long way. Everyone needs an advocate sometime

.
Mistreat a cat or a dog, and that animal soon takes on an ill appearance and an unfriendly personality. It stops grooming itself and fights with other animals. You never see one award-winning cat in a pack of alley cats. They all look the same. Why should children be any different?
So these kids make mistakes, like so many teens do, but for whatever reason, they end up in the system while countless others go unpunished, often for the same crime.

Here is where the real crime begins. With their entire lives ahead of them, and the opportunity for the state to make a difference for once, the state instead turns its back. Many of the kids are put on psychological drugs. Some help, many do not...........

Montanans for JUSTICE

http://www.montanansforjustice.com/main.htm

A coerced confession extracted three and a half years after the murder by overzealous Louisiana lawmen and riddled with inconsistencies was the prosecution's only evidence. Apathy, silence & passiveness of the general society, continues to delay/deny "justice".

8 Children face possibly of LIFE IN PRISON/NOT A SOLUTION!!

8 "CHILDREN" FACE POSSIBLY LIFE IN PRISON...Barbaric, inhumane for a "child".........

http://www2. tbo. com/content/2008/apr/10/8-teens-be-tried-adults-polk-beating-case/

Well now where do you think these kids learned such bizarre behavior, they did know this was wrong, but again, they will be the ONLY ones punished, tho the enviornment they were surrounded in, the family and community background of these kids contribute to this behavior. Certainly this behavior is NOT condoned, and punishment is warranted for those involved, but "tried as adults"???? possibly life in prison???? is just too harsh, better served in the community is to place them at "an abuse shelter" for their sentencing, PRISON IS NOT THE ANSWER/SOLUTION to this incident.

Again, the thunder clatters, and prosecutors eagerly step up to tried these kids as adults, it is obvious they not only need angry management classes and counseling, but they are kids that need discipline, guidance and counseling about what exactly they did, to destroy their lives with "prison" terms, is barbaric and inhumane. Where is the compassion and mercy and most of all "justice"????? Again, the officials seem to contribute to "destruction" instead of "helping" these kids. Prison certainly will NOT make them a better person, but will learn to be a criminal!!!!
