    THE STATES THAT ARE RESCUING RAPE KITS

    in Current Events

    RAPE KITS BACKLOGGED ON SHELVES, RAPISTS FREE AS BIRDS. WHO’S DOING SOMETHING?


    We've all heard about the backlog of rape kits at crime facilities and police labs all across the country, and all the information locked in those kits that could be used to prosecute rapists and prevent them from raping again. The good news is that some states are actually tackling that backlog and making headway in those DNA tests - AND finding a lot of criminals. The bad news – huge backlogs still exist; it takes money to process this evidence; and some states are actually charging victims for processing and investigating via rape kits.


    Erika Teschke, Founder of RapeKitWA.org, started out as your everyday citizen until she read about the nationwide issue with untested rape kits.  Since then she has talked with leaders at all levels of the rape kit chain of custody in Wa State and with national organizations such as the Joyful Heart’s End The Backlog in order to help bring victim centered rape kit reform to her home state.  RapeKitWA. org began as an educational tool and has morphed into a community based grassroots lobbying effort that helped to both educate the public about rape kits and steer legislation through the WA State Legislature.


    Join us as we talk with Erika to find out what's going on with rape kits around the country with rape kits and the victims they represent.

    Black Reconstruction #LaShawnAllenMuhammad 323.927.2913

    in Business

    Hosted By: LaShawn Allen-Muhammad


    Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama.  During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.   


    At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown,  gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office.  The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk.  Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.    African-American Firsts: Government


    Local elected official: John Mercer Langston, 1855, town clerk of Brownhelm Township, Ohio.


    State elected official: Alexander Lucius Twilight, 1836, the Vermont legislature.


    Governor  (appointed): P.B.S. Pinchback served as governor of Louisiana from Dec. 9, 1872-Jan. 13, 1873, during impeachment proceedings against the elected governor.


    U.S. Representative: Joseph Rainey became a Congressman from South Carolina in 1870 and was reelected four more times. 


    U.S. Senator: Hiram Revels became Senator from Mississippi from Feb. 25, 1870, to March 4, 1871, during Reconstruction.  


    There have only been a total of five black senators in U.S. history: the remaining two are Blanche K. Bruce [1875-1881] and Barack Obama

    It's an all new edition of Red Maryland Radio tonight at 8 PM on the Red Maryland Network.


    On tonight's show:



    We'll recap the Maryland Republican Party spring convention, and the announcement of our Red, White, and Blue dinner speaker.

    The Baltimore Sun is honoring Governor Larry Hogan as Marylander of the Year, despite opposing him every step of the way.

    Speaking of Governor Hogan, what the left can't do electorally they'll try to take in court.

    The MTA chief is being shown the door. Does this mean help is finally on the way?

    And just because Governor Hogan has laid down the law on new taxes doesn't mean that Democrats in Annapolis got the memo.


    All that and more is why you can't afford to miss an episode of Red Maryland Radio tonight at 8 PM on the Red Maryland Network.......and don't forget that you can subscribe to all Red Maryland Network programming on iTunes and on Stitcher.

    Are Children Over Medicated? Gayani DeSilva M.D.

    in Women

    he California legislature is beginning to look at the way children are medicated with psychiatric medications. Some purport that prescribing practices are to blame—that psychiatrists are prescribing too many anti-psychotic medications which have significant and serious side effects to children, particularly in the foster care system. The practice of prescribing psychiatric medications to children is a direct result of the "presenting complaint" brought to the attention of the psychiatrist. The overuse or underuse of medication or inappropriate use of medication for foster children is a symptom of a much larger problem with the care of children in the foster care system.


    Dr. DeSilva has spent over 15 years as a Psychiatrist, specifically enhancing the mental health of children and adolescents. Much of her work consists of the complex array of needs with adolescent and young adult criminal and violent offenders to understand the interplay between mental illness, societal factors, and interpersonal issues. In this climate of horrific violence much of it perpetrated by adolescents and young adults in society today, she believes understanding the needs of children is crucial to preventing further tragic events. Dr. DeSilva believes not only must children with mental illness obtain the care they desperately need, it is vital adults participating in child rearing educate themselves about children's development and learn to communicate effectively with children and adolescents
