    Quick Take Ohio: Recognizing the Journey in Ohio's Juvenile Corrections System

    in Legal

    In January 2015, the report, Realigning Juvenile Corrections in Ohio to Reinvest in What Works was released documenting the changes that have occurred at the state-level in Ohio's juvenile justice system. Ohio has been highlighted nationally as one state that has been progressive and aggressive in its juvenile justice reforms. The report focuses on the components that came together to support the effort of reducing incarceration and creating more evidence-based alternatives for long-term community savings. Gabriella Celeste, the author of the report, provides a historical overview of the shift in Ohio, including the key fiscal elements that continue to make ongoing reform feasible.

    The Bully Effect

    in Family

    Bill Ballenger, founder of Break the Grey in 2005, has dedicated his life to be a catalyst for
    change in the lives of youth who live a “grey” existence in a culture of uncertainty, a culture that
    fosters a “whatever” lifestyle that can destroy. Troubled and bullied as a child, Ballenger grew
    into a violent teenager, and became a young married father addicted to drugs and alcohol. Local
    burglaries prompted a SWAT team to raid his home where he and his wife were arrested.
    Ultimately their nine-month-old daughter was taken from them and they were each sentenced to
    six years in prison with the Indiana Department of Corrections. It was there that Bill’s life
    changed. Two years into his sentence, Ballenger and his wife were inexplicably released from
    prison and their daughter returned to them. With a passion for helping others, Ballenger shares
    his story challenging students to avoid the choices he made and take their lives and futures
    seriously. Break the Grey is the fulfillment of Ballenger’s vow to give something positive back
    to society.

    “The Disrespect of Poland” on “I Take Liberty With My Coffee”

    in Politics

    Recently an article was published by the Patriot Ledger, a media publication based in Quincy, MA.  The article was a discussion about a Holocaust survivor.  We always like to read stories about anyone who survived that horror.  We all know about the Holocaust. Or do we?  In my view, we must not know about it since the media continues to attribute some parts of the Holocaust against the people and, the country of Poland.  A people, and a nation, who deserve as much respect as any other on this earth, as an example of fighting for freedom while faced with the greatest odds against them. What has happened to our society where we refuse to acknowledge truth and facts and, instead decide to listen to our favorite TV personality no matter what they say?  Why does the media refuse to make corrections to stories they report when they are shown to be factually incorrect?  Is someone pulling strings?  Is there and agenda?  There must be.  Have you ever heard of the Polish Underground or the  heroes who were members of that movement and unit? Have you ever heard of the Warsaw uprising?  Do you know that Hitler ordered the German Army to annihilate the people of Poland off the face of the earth and the only reason why that failed was due the fight waged by the people, not any army, but the people of Poland? A battle the people of Poland waged alone.  Betrayed by the allies to Stalin and Communism one side and fighting against German tanks on the other.  In 2015 it is Poland that remains.   Three million Polish Jews were killed by Germany. THREE MILLION POLISH CATHOLICS WERE ALSO KILLED.  It was in GERMAN OCCUPIED POLAND that this happened. This morning we discuss this very important issue with Stefan Komar.  The son of Orlicz, the decorated member of the Polish Underground. A man who saved many lives including Jews. So grab a cup of coffee and join us.

    The 2006 FBI warning of KKK infiltration of police depts plus B'more and news.

    in Current Events

    The 2006 Warning from the FBI about the infiltration of police departments by the Klan and other racist organizations. Does it explain the rash of murders of unarmed black men? It's a perfect cover and who but a racist could kill a 11 year old kid playing with a toy gun. Also the beat goes on with a twist with black Dane County DA Ismael Ozanne declining to prosecute white Madison, Wisconsin police officer Matt Kenny in the shooting death of unarmed Tony Robinson Jr. who was shot for nothing more than acting erratically. Wisconsin state law requires police shootings are investigated by outside agencies but what should we expect from the state which really isnt an outside agency. And all the other news on The Ron Kelly Show.

    From Insanity to Sane featuring Ms. Tonier Cain to the platform for an heartfelt interview like no other interview I had covered in my career. Please tune in May 28, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. CST. To be apart of the listening audience please dial (323) 693- 3830 if at anytime you wish to speak with the host please dial 1.


     


    Ms. Tonier Cain a woman who had 83 arrests, 66 convictions, and thousands of requests to serve as the keynote speaker in front of audiences that include the United Nations, government agencies, teachers, community and civic organizations, mental health agencies, substance abuse programs, corrections facilities and  trauma survivors.  Featured in the documentary “Behind Closed Doors: Trauma Survivors and the Psychiatric System,” and the subject of the award winning film “Healing Neen.”


    After surviving a childhood of unspeakable sexual abuse, unrelenting violence, and betrayal by systems that were charged with helping, Ms. Tonier Cain stands before her audiences today, a testimony to the resiliency of the human spirit exemplifying the innate human instinct to survive.


    Tonier “Neen” Cain lived on the streets for twenty nightmarish years.  


     


    Years filled with hunger, brutality and a lifestyle when described seems unconscionable. Incarcerated and pregnant in 2004, someone finally took the time to ask:  “what happened to you” instead of “what’s wrong with you.”  It is at that moment she began her journey to become a survivor and for the first time in her life began to live in freedom. Be blessed and encouraged. Remember God loves you with an everlasting love.
