(excerpt)
A MUST READ BY "ALL" PARENTS/GUARDIANS/EVERYONE

"Rxdrugaddict.com is a site I started in conjunction with my book. It chronicles a suburban father’s journey through his son’s oxy addiction. A true story you will find difficult to believe as I ventured into the dangerous world of prescription drug dealers who are addicts themselves. " - Brad DeHaven

Human Rights Watch condemns U. S. Prison system/Immigration policy






http://www.wsws.org/articles/2011/jan2011/hrwr-j28.shtml





(Excerpt) Please read full article


"The US holds the dubious distinction of being the only known country where individuals are serving life sentences without parole for convictions of crimes carried out when they were under the age of 18. There are 2,574 such youth offenders condemned to spend the rest of their lives in prison. Although the US Supreme Court ruled in June 2010, in Graham v. Florida, that life without parole cannot be imposed on young defendants convicted of non-homicide offenses, this will have no effect on the majority of these young people who are convicted of murder."

Juvenile law reform is imperative to help save our nation's children from doom and death, get educated and involved for your own children.

U. S.-HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH/EVENTS 2010








A very important read.....except below, please read full article, so important to us ALL

"US citizens enjoy a broad range of civil liberties and have recourse to a strong system of independent federal and state courts, but continuing failures-notably in the criminal justice and immigration systems and in counterterrorism law and policy-mar its human rights record. Although the Obama administration has pledged to address many of these concerns, progress has been slow; in some areas it has been nonexistent."

Krista McDaniel~~FINAL JUSTICE?? WHEN??






Krista McDaniel(16)~~30 yrs w/NO chance of parole/ FINAL JUSTICE? WHEN?

After many, many postponements of a post conviction hearing date, finally!!! scheduled for 21 July'08....In Aug' 08, ruling results the PCR request was denied...Her case was before the S. C. Appeals court, which was also DENIED. This "child" did not deserve 30 yrs w/out parole, for a "mistake" made as a child. JUSTICE was DENIED! No compassion, NO mercy!!

In 2002, Unfortunately like so many "children, she was "tried as an ADULT",(there was NO trial) a child, in wrong place at wrong time, with wrong ADULTS, She did NOT kill anyone, unfortunately caught up in the "injustice" system, sentenced to 30 yrs with NO chance of parole, She had just turned 16. She was so scared she would get the "death penalty", she was "talked into" taking a "plea". This bizarre case reeks of injustice.






"Child" was ONLY 11 yrs of age, at time of this tragedy.
INNOCENT "until" proven "guilty" PLEASE READ FULL ARTICLE

This "child" "deserves" a "chance"....NO child should have to pay with their "very lives" for "mistakes" made as a "child"....Justice must be tempered with "compassion and mercy"
