We will discuss Jerome Murdough, a homeless Marine Corps veteran who suffered from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder who was arrested in Riker's Island jail and died there of overheating in a solitary jail cell in February 2014. Bob will discuss how deinstitutionalization of the mentally ill during President Regan's term and simultaneous removal (through lack of funding) for the "safety net" of detoxification centers, group homes and outpatient treatment programs contributed to Murdough's avoidable death and the negligence of America's most vulnerable population. The National Institute of Mental Health (NAMI) says there are 8,100,000 adults in this country with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, and a UCLA study found that fifteen percent of people with these diagnoses are homeless.
There is a destructive and pervasive myth that the poor are lazy and that most of the homeless live on the streets by choice. The reality is that on any given night in the US, nearly 700,000 Americans are homeless. !3% are veterans, 22% are children and 42% are homeless, many of them mentally ill. Until Americans are willing ot face these facts, the situation is likely to continue to worsen. The once-vibrant US economy appears to be broken beyond repair, continuing to suffer the devastatio

It's Thursday on the Brian The Hammer Show as Brian welcomes his guest today:
-Ion Baleanu, Actor, Voice Artist, Musician, Author. As a child of 3 yrs in Romania Ion's Father witnessed a murder by some Securitate (Secret Police) and he wanted justice. Not knowing this was something ordered by mid-level government bureaucrats he thought he was following the chain of command by reporting it. Through this they tried to get "rid" of him by putting him in a mental institution, putting Ion's family in orphanages, etc to shut him up so he sought political asylum in the US.
What Ion learned from his life experiences:
-Our family's escape from communist Romania; Fortitude and never give up. When you are told you can't, show them you can!
-Homeless as a teenager; Find the Fight in You! Although Ion had nowhere to live he still found a way to live and survive each day.
-The death of his son Elijah of Anenecephaly in 2005 (Anencephaly is a condition where a baby is born without a skull, mostly dur to a lack of folic acid in the mother prior to conception. As tragic as that was for Ion he learned the he can't let it keep him in a funk!
All these life lessons have taught Ion that he doesn't belong to himself, that he is on this earth to help others. Through his various art forms he touches others.
Ion's most recent project is being selected to be involved with Asociatia Romanilor din New England. He is also involved in a play "The Annulment", written by Plymouth playwright Sheila Kelleher. Ion is taking character classes with well known voice over Wren Ross. Ion is also starting his own food line. And would like to one day open his own technical school.
Of all Ion's accomplishments he is happy to have reconnected with his daughter on live national TV on the hit show "Mobbed" starring Howie Mandel
