Raped In The Military: A National Security Issue.
While serving their country, approximately 26,000 men and women yearly are raped and sodomizedcontinuously and these incidents are disturbingly covered up. Victims of Military Sexual Trauma (MST) are instructed to remain quiet and left to suffer, consequently causing them to become suicidal. The victims’ stories are revealed in a film produced and directed by Michael Miller and Gerri Lynn Weinstein- Matthews entitled “Justice Denied” which exposes the shocking stories of rape and humiliation. In the film, some of the victims speak of the notorious cannibal and rapists Jeffery Dahmer (who served in the U.S. Army from 1970- 1981) as being the perpetrator of their rape.
Join in the conversation (6p CST/7p EST/4p PST) with survivor, Michael Mathews who wil give us an update of the film "Justice Denied"at The Lotus Place and hear the stories of human and civil rights violations being covered up in the military.
Trailer for the film can be viewed here; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sRoZnqYzJA
Justice Denied is his story and the story of all of our active Military and our Veterans who do. The Military, the VA and the public are finally starting to wake up and become aware of what this blight on our Armed Forces is doing not only to the survivors, but to their families, their communities and our readiness to defend our Country. They’re realizing that the problem must be solved. Unfortunately efforts so far amount to not much more than band-aid treatment. We need serious change in the Culture of the Military and civilian oversight.
The Department of Defense says that some 19,000 cases of sexual assault per year are perpetrated and less than a 20% reported. The DoD says half of those are women and half are men. The incidence of sexual assault among the female population is higher but the numbers are roughly even. That's because there are more men than women in the military.
But wait, "Men in the Military don't get raped." Yes they do, and it's time to hear from them. Women have been courageously speaking up and doing so loudly. They are getting venues and platforms and audiences to tell their stories. Now it's time for the men to join their voices to the effort.
Justice Denied will tell what happens when an incident occurs and when it is (or not) reported and will set up a solution to make it safer for victims to come forward and report these crimes. We'll look at the Culture of the Military to see why it's not safe to report occurrences now. Our primary goal with this movie is to let male survivors know it’s ok to come forward and get treatment and let them know what kind of therapies (traditional and non-traditional) are available to them. It will hopefully also be a vehicle to lend the men's voices and experiences to the effort to get bill HR3435 out of committee, passed by both houses, and signed by the President.

Tonight's special guest is Geri Lynn Weinstein Matthews, MSW, LCSW, from New Mexico who's produced and co-directed "Justice Denied," a newly released 30 minute documentary that takes male sexual assault in the military out of the shadows. Geri Lynn will be joined by her husband, Michael Matthews, a survivor of both child abuse and sexual assault in the military. Geri Lynn was sexually assaulted herself, when she attended college as an undergraduate. Michael says, "I was 19 years old in the United States Air Force, the year was 1974, and I thought I was the only one." He'd been knocked unconscious and gang raped by his fellow airmen. "I kept my secret bottled up for 30 years, never telling a single solitary soul." One evening, 20 years into their marriage, he mustered up the courage to tell his supportive wife, Geri Lynn, who said "together we will get through this." The film they've created, "Justice Denied," is a 30 minute documentary that takes male sexual assault in the military out of the shadows. It's been screened at the Pentagon and US Senate, is now being used a an educational tool on military installations. Sexual assault involves power, control and domination. Statistics suggest that 90% of all males who are raped try to commit suicide at least twice in a lifetime. When a closed systems such as the military does not validate the rape survivor, men and women, the perpetrator gets to continue their criminal behavior without consequence. In being solution focused, Geri and Michael support a new bill, HR 1593, The Stop Act introduced by Congresswoman Jackie Speier. Her bill is all inclusive and stresses civilian oversight, unlike other watered-down versions currently on the table.

Listen LIve at 9:30am to 10:30am pst on Friday, 11/27/20115, or 12:30pm - 1:30pm est - Post-Thanksgiving Exclusive with Vic Contino, President of Maxell who more than 25 years and now finds himself inside the dark side of justice after being sued by the Glock high profile team of lawyers. If you've never been inside the web of deception spun by lawyers or read my book, Fight Back Legal Abuse, an Irwin Award WInner, and 5 Star Review, sold around the world then you probably aren't familiar with Chapter 10, Justice for $um and Justice for Some. Innocent people really do get accused of crimes whether civil or criminal and lives really can be destroyed as well as businesses and families and some people go to jail who are innocent while others can go to their deaths. It is a frightening system if you are caught up on the dark side and a judge said, "We found her or him guilty at the last hearing" and you weren't notified of the hearing and you are now traumatized. The deception runs deep Don't miss this exclusive interview. Rose Colombo N The Justice Club airs live every MWF from 9am - 10:30 am and 12-1:30pm est - All shows archived at Fredomizer radio or at www.rose4justice.com
Brought to you by The American Public Safety Training Institute (TAPSTI) www.tapsti.org, this 2 hour session will review the work of Dr. Peter Kraska and Dr. W. Lawrence Neuman and their excellent textbook entitled “Criminal Justice and Criminology Research Methods” (2012, 2nd ed.). Thinking about your application of ethics in your research project is critical to your completing enough preparation to be successful. Ethical conduct ensures that the "knowledge–power dynamic" which we understand so well in public safety generates knowledge only from credible research. As a criminal justice researcher you have a professional and ethical obligation to create new knowledge that is useful, accurate, credible, and that can be generalized across a wide population. The purpose of this seminar is to ensure you understand and appreciate the ethical implications of your research as well as the potential adverse impacts that research can have on others.
Yesterday we celebrated Thanksgiving, while many did so in fear. Today there are many protests planned in major shopping areas. What effect do these protests have on the general population and our police? Does the distraction that they create in a crowded mall provide for a perfect oppotunity for terrorists? Fox News is reporting that the FBI have 48 ISIS subjects under constant surveillance in an effort to twart a 'Paris style' attack.
How is all of this behavior affecting our police officers and policies today? Join in our discussion with author of 'Micheal Brown Jr. Didn't Have to Die', Ken Dye.
