PTSD, DISABILITIES AND THE COURTS: EQUAL ACCESS FOR ALL?
Did you know that as many as 85% of women who experience Intimate Partner Violence have PTSD? Some studies say a little less, but no matter which study you read, the numbers are alarming.
Did you know that in courts a person with PTSD or other disability is often accused of being “crazy,” or lying to manipulate the court rather than being recognized as a person with a disability?
Just because some disabilities are not visible doesn’t mean they are not included under federal regulations. People with PTSD may qualify for taking breaks in the proceedings, may be able to get extensions on deadlines, may be able to testify in court from a safe room or even on the phone. Courts are mandated to accommodate to ensure equal access to the justice system, but how can we get them to do it?
Dr. Karin Huffer is doing something about that.
Dr. Huffer is an adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York, and knows plenty about the law, disability accommodation, and domestic violence. She is starting a program at John Jay to teach people how to be advocates for those whose disabilities are exploited and not accommodated in court, even when those people are representing themselves.
Learn more about what an Equal Access Advocate can do, how to learn to be one and get one, and find how this whole thing can work to help women deal with and get their rights in courts. Join us Saturday with Dr. Karin Huffer and information about equal access and the courts.

Welcome to HELL IS FOR CHILDREN – a blog talk radio program for and by Protective Mothers with your host Geerte Frenken. Today’s guest is British Protective Mother Helene Falconer who lost custody of her daughter to her abusive drug-using ex in New Zealand via The Hague Convention! He continues his domestic terror by frequently withholding Skype contact between Helene and her daughter. So what is a Protective Mother? A Protective Mother tries to protect her child or children from their abusive father by many means necessary, which is an uphill battle in today’s corrupt Family Court system that thrives on paternal entitlement. However, Protective Mothers worldwide are uniting to fight for the right to keep their children in what could be called a new Civil Rights movement. Needless to say, we are not interested in haters here. We offer a safe haven for Protective Moms to share their stories (can be anonymously). And we don’t just want to share our horror stories here. This program is meant to be a platform of constructive support and a think-tank for solutions. Other guests who can contribute to this topic in a positive manner are welcome as well. Are you a listener who has tips for our guests? Then please call in at 347-850-1243 at 12PM EST! Are you ready? Operation EXPOSE continues!

Dr Teresa Sievers of Bonita Springs Florida was beloved by her family, friends and patients alike.
A happy and loving woman it appeared she had everything going for her. 2 wonderful children, loving husband, thriving homeopathic medical practice. However, as is often the case, what goes on behind closed doors can be the exact opposite of what we think we know.
After attending a funeral in CT with her husband and two young daughters Dr. Sievers decided to go home early and leave her family in Boston to spend a few extra days.
Dr. Sievers was murdered in home.
Two arrests have been made. One of those arrested is the best friend of Mark Sievers, Dr. Sievers husband.

In this segment, I will be talking about a friends experience with a major entertainment contract that turned out to be a failure becaise of all the option clauses ? His experience with this book publisher was one of heart break and illusions which left him powerless and stuck in a non profitable contract. Of course I won't tell you who this book publisher is, but I will be reading its contract and you could see how clear and deceptive it is. My friend does not blame this publisher but has learned a valuable lesson about contracts with options !
MY “NIGGA MOMENT”: HOW A TRIP TO PURCHASE GAS TURNED HORRIBLY AWRY
I am certain that you are wondering what exactly is a “Nigga Moment”. In the words of Huey Freeman, a “Nigga Moment” is “A moment in which ignorance overwhelms the mind of an otherwise logical negro male; causing him to act in an illogical, self-destructive manner, i.e. like a Nigga.”
Unintended Harm – – or Deliberate Cover-up?
Why was science able to be thrown out and not reported? The omitted data, after being analyzed, showed that black boys had a 240% increased risk of regressing into Autism after administration of the MMR vaccine. This information was never brought forth to the public.
WHERE IS THE RALLY POINT?: HOW BLACK AMERICA’S FAILURE TO LOOK AT ITS PAST DOOMS IT IN THE FUTURE
Unfortunately, far too many African-Americans prefer that historical moments and occurrences such as ‘chattel slavery’, Jim Crow, and lynching be de-emphasized, if not totally ignored as an unspeakable unspoken that has been banished from our memories to never be seen or heard from again.

The U.S. Education & Job Market: Is Still Seperate & Unequal, even now with the Class of 2016. The 4TLOMP (For The Love of My People) Panel wants to hear from you,the class and family, of the 2016 graduates. The data still reveals that Whites who don't finish high school have better job prospects than Black college graduates. Blacks students need to finish at least 2 additional levels of education to have the same probality of getting a job as White students. Last year, nearly 1/4 of Black High School grads are currently neither employed nor enrolled in a school.
Are these dismal prospects just happenstance or by design? Please share what you see as the problem, as well as the solution, with us and the world.
Last- but not least, directly after the broadcast, we will be presenting the second half-hour of the, "Answer to the Critics- Part 1," CD (from 8p-8:30p).
