    THOR VIOLENCE IN AMERICA PART 5-CHILD ABUSE & NEGLECT

    in Education

    THOR RADIO NETWORK;


             THOR & Family will tackle yet another issue relating to the Family Structure and that is "Child Abuse and Neglect. Is it a crime to discipline our children? Can the corporate state and federal government interfere with disciplinary actions of parents? Do your kids belong to you or the state? What is child abuse? What type of discipline is needed for our children? Why are Sport figures under so much scrutiny for their personal behavior.? Are the so called laws dictating how we rear our children enforceable against the parents? Are schools partly to blame for the attack on parenting? Are the law enforcement community able to abuse, beat, and even kill our children, adults, but we cant discipline our children? We now have law enforcement dressed in paramilitary gear policing our schools under the guise of protecting our children.


           Are they there to intimidate our children, even run a school to prison program? Is the public school system what is was years ago? Are there laws being inacted that will allow RFID chips to be put in our children under the guise of child safety. Are school teachers becoming state and government spies who reports what they deem as abuse or other concerns to authorities and "privately run" child protective services? Who are they Child Protective Service Agencies, are they government, or state agencies, or are they private run corporations for profit involved in a form of "human trafficking"? Lets put the facts on the table people. What is the THOR-ality (reality) of private run corporations controlling our lives.


       We will look into the issues and more this Friday 11:00 am EST. This is a issue that attacks the family structure and needs addressing. Greg Doss will be a guest on the show and will be interviewed.

    Attorney Allison Folmar: Refusing deadly drugs is not medical neglect

    in Family

    These shows are conducted in coordination with Citizens Council on Human Rights (CCHR)


    Attorney Allison Folmar has been an Attorney for 15 years in the State of Michigan. While in law school Allison received an Award of Excellence in the field of juvenile law.


    Earlier years:


    From 1988-1994 Allison was a Corrections Officer for the State of Michigan Department of Corrections and then went on to become a Probations Officer. Allison assisted in restructuring the Federal mandated Interstate Contact Agreement whereby people on probation and parole are handled so as not to fall through the cracks.


    On the day Maryanne Godboldo’s story broke. Attorney Allison Folmar was in her car listening to the radio. She heard about the police stand off and her first thought was: “This woman is protecting her child from being drugged and they’re gonna take her baby? “Oh, no they’re not!”


    The next day Allison took on the case pro bono.


    And so began her 10 month battle on behalf of Maryanne Godboldo and her daughter.


    She fought and won two legal battles on the fundamental premise that charging a parent with medical neglect for refusing to give their child a deadly drug is not only a complete oxymoron but a violation of the law.

    Tonight's special guest is Yanette (Lola Lola) Novoa, LCSW, from Miami, a child abuse survivor who studied psychology at Florida International University and is now writing a guide related to the issues of child abuse and trauma. Lola is the Founder and Director of Find The Way, LLC, and is publishing a new guide related to learning how to heal from child abuse and trauma. She says, "I know the pain, I know how it feels." Lola's childhood was taken away. She had been assaulted and raped from the age of 4 to the age of 12, ending in an illegal abortion at 12 in the presence of the perpetrator who forever changed her life. The new guide book, "Dare to Let Go and "Thrive": A Self Help Guide for Learning to Thrive After Experiencing Sexual Abuse", will be out next year. It invites the reader to learn the fundamental difference between "Thriving" versus surviving. Surviving is being able to function within a society. "Thriving" leads to living a meaningful life. Former victims of sexual assault can use the steps and strategies in this self help guide to point the way in becoming the thriving individual they are meant to be. Ms Novoa believes the key to all malice is "Prevention." In the long run, it is easier and cheaper to prevent than to treat. She specializes in working and assisting individuals of all ages that have suffered sexual abuse and are in need of finding their way to living a more meaningful life via different therapeutic techniques. Lola says, "I put together this guide mainly to .. give you some techniques to solve your own problems related to the long term effects of sexual abuse that you are carrying with you either consciously or unconsciously .. to be the thriving individual that you were meant to be.

    George Dahmer "Chief White Owl" (WWF) Abuse & neglect & Death

    in Family

    George Dahmer was better known to his fans as “Chief White Owl” one of the original wrestlers for the World Wrestling Federation (WWF).  George began his career in the 50‘s and continued long into the 70‘s with the Federation, as one of their most popular and loved celebrity wrestlers.   He finished his career in the early 80‘s.


    In later years George developed senile dementia and was eventually admitted to Columbia Hospital for evaluation.  George was 72 years old.  


    At the time of admittance to Lake Worth Manor, George was fully able to walk, talk, feed himself and take care of other personal needs.  


    After several weeks in the home, George’s upper denture was missing, along with his shoes, clothes and other belongings.  The staff responded by putting someone else’s shoes on George, two sizes too small, causing blistering on his feet.


    George was chemically restrained with off-label drugs which are prohibited for use on the elderly.


    George's stay in Lake Worth Manor was 63 days. George was severely neglected at Lake Worth Manor. Florida Department of Children and Families -Elder Abuse was notified and so was the Ombudsman. Lake Worth was charged with Negligence and fined $5,000.00.


    George lost all residents rights as a result of the complaint and as a form of retaliation for the complaint.


    On April 30, 2008 George was transferred by ambulance to Heartland of Boynton Beach, Florida. The Staff cleaned him up and then reported the horrific news- dehydration, malnutrition, lost 32 pounds in 8 weeks, decubitus ulcers on both heels of his feet and tailbone; stage 4. Both rotary caps turned in both shoulders.


    George Dahmer passed away at 3:16 pm on May 23,2008.

    OPEN TOPIC or "open mike" night. Call in! Pick any issues, topics or subjects you'd like to discuss. Wearing a Blue Ribbon is the symbol of Child Abuse Awareness! Millions of abuse victims (men and women) hide the story of their experience well into adulthood. A huge number continue to suffer from pain, anger, fear, shame and embarrassment for decades. Most will agree their traumas have resulted in an inability to trust, make good decisions and have healthy relationships. But giving up the secret is often how recovery begins, one survivor talking to another. Join Bill Murray and his co-hosts, panelists and guests, many of them abuse survivors, others supporters and friends, for an informed discussion of the many important issues that surround child abuse. Anonymous calls and chat room participation are encouraged. ~~ Please see our web site at: www.NAASCA.org

Their mission is to empower adult and child survivors of domestic and sexual abuse, while collaborating with the community to prevent violence and create positive social change. They have a 24-hour hotline and provide safe and transitional housing, legal advocacy, crisis intervention, individual and group counseling, community education and PALS, and a unique children’s arts therapy program. SAFE in Hunterdon delivers critical support services to the many families that have experienced violence in their lives.

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 1 - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, author of the book “Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide." Together they will lead tonight's discussion on STEP 1: "We admitted we were powerless over the abuse and trauma of our youth -- that our lives had become unmanageable." The survivor’s decision to begin a process of healing begins with the admission of what happened to them. This involves working through the defenses employed to shun from consciousness the excruciatingly painful memories of the traumatic events. Having passed through this phase of remembering (in any way possible), the acceptance of the truth of the traumatic experience moves the survivor towards resolution. Thus begins the creation of an internal, healing space for the survivor to feel what remained frozen in time, banished and unwelcome in consciousness. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery is grateful for the spiritual recovery she found in the 12 Steps of AA. She's been active in the 12 Step community for over 17 years. Bill Murray credits his 30 plus years of recovery to the spiritual power of the 12 Step program, too. He founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 2 ~~ See our web page: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka Edery at: rebecca.edery@gmail.com

    Tonight's special guest is Robert Nelson, a survivor of child sexual abuse who, in spite of being sexually abused by a teacher when in school and dealing with the associated trauma, became an internationally recognized speaker and consultant. When in his late 40s, Nelson began to actively confront his childhood abuse. In addition to seeking therapy, Robert became active on the government affairs front, and he's currently a Member of the Board of Directors at Justice4PAKids. The athletic trainer at Nelson’s high school, a marathon runner, befrended him. Robert was 15 and naturally he felt special. After their run one day, the teacher began the pattern of sexual abuse that would last until Robert's senior year. The man made Robert feel as if he were his friend, that he could trust him. He gave Robert access to his mobile home and let him sleep there in the middle of the day where he had an array of gay magazines. He also gave Robert his sports car to drive, and money. When Robert was 17 the trainer took him to an over night professional conference at a hotel and made him sleep in his room. To this day, the trainer continues to work with children at a Pennsylvania high school. In fact, after retiring at the collegiate level as a head athletic trainer the abuser went back to the high school level as a part-time trainer where he could again be amongst children. Robert has become a passionate anti-abuse advocate, lobbying for statute of limitations reform and for child sexual abuse to be added as an exception to the sovereign immunity defense that shields public officials from being sued. Nelson is a graduate of the Ohio State University with a degree in Criminology and Sociology.
