This vitally important show is a continuation of last night's SPECIAL REPORT on the life & untimely death of Coalinga State Hospital (CSH) resident Isidro "Cedro" Zavala Torres--simply Cedro Zavala to fellow CSH residents.
According to witnesses, Cedro Zavala--who was a wheelchair-dependant Mentally Disordered Offender--was violently attacked by approximately 10 CSH Staff/Department of Police Services (DPS) Officers on June 24. The incident began when Zavala refused to go to a medical appointment. Then, after he was forcibly removed him from his wheelchair & thrown to the ground, an aggressive officer allegedly stood on Zavala's neck w/ his heavy steel-toed boot.
Witnesses theorize Zavala's larynx was crushed by this blow. As he gasped for air, officers launched him back into his chair, threw a towel over his face & rushed him away. Isidro Zavala Torres, 30, died a short time later.
Sadly, this is one very serious incident in a long history of violence/intimidation against patients. CSH News has heard too many horror stories--the nightmare must end. No more statements from CSH Director Audry King saying this/that is a "serious issue," then doing nothing about it. CSH must pay for their crimes against the elderly & infirmed. It's time California's "Money Pit" stopped wasting billions in taxpayer money locking up men who've finished their prison terms. It's time everyone involved stood before CA taxpayers--and a jury of their peers--to be held accountable for what they've done.
Listeners, tune in as we discuss horrifying patient abuse/elder abuse that's been swept under the rug - until now..

Tonight's special guest is Jay Lore from Laurel. Maryland, child abuse survivor and author of the book "Sometimes You Lose, Sometimes You Learn: How I went to a party one night for twenty years and lived to tell about it." Jay is transgendered from woman to man, and agrees this was a part of his recovery, of "being comfortable living inside his own skin." That wasn't always the case. "I was 4 years old when it started, I don't know at what age the physicality stopped. I was 32 when I first spoke it out loud to someone." Because of the abuse, Jay turned to drugs early on. "I did my first drugs at age 11. LSD, to be exact. It escalated from there. In group my councilor used to get me to read my drug list because it was so extensive and there were things she'd never heard of. There were three suicide attempts. "I was a cutter. I loved the feel of the blade, the sting as it pierced my skin, the pain told me I was able to feel .. something. I lost my kids." Eventually Jay called an 800 drug line. That was in 1987, and Jay's been clean now for over 28 years. "I've been telling my story every chance I get," he says, "to anyone who will listen and some who don't want to hear it." He offers his book for free. Jay now lives with his oldest daughter and her family. He attends and serves at church faithfully. "It's about reaching that one someone that needs to hear my story as only I can tell it. To get that one to realize there is hope and love and light. And most importantly, that they need never walk alone again."

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 11 - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, from NYC, author of the book “Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide." Bill founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). Together they will lead tonight's discussion on STEP 11: "Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out." Step Eleven is the daily practice and experience of deepening your awareness of your Higher Power through prayer and meditation. You are capable of prayer and meditation, regardless of your background or history. If you set aside the time daily, you can reach for whatever you believe is greater than, deeper than, or beyond yourself. Step Eleven also assumes that by now you have a conscious awareness of your Higher Power, and you are drawn to deepening that connection. ~~ 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. ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 12. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: email@example.com

Tonight's special guest is Olivia Martinez from Pico Rivera, CA, child abuse survivor and Employment Coordinator at the California Department of Rehabilitation who says she always aims at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Immigrating from Mexico in the 60's her family lived in the largely Latino East LA area. Her father was a blue collar worker who suffered from alcoholism. "I always felt alone," she wrote. But her mother spend the majority of her time dealing with her father's alcoholism. Olivia was repeatedly sexually abused by a cousin, eight years older than her. The first incident of this was when she was about three, but the last time was in adulthood. "I grew up eating my anxiety away and reached 375 pounds in adulthood. I was fat and felt like a monster." Eventually she began working on herself. "I had gastric bypass and lost all my excess weight. I began kick boxing I learned how to physically to not let anyone hurt me gain. The recovery period has been long and imperfect." Olivia began therapy for the first time when unsuccessfully trying to prevent a break up with her boyfriend, but eventually found more appropriate help at the East Los Angeles Woman Center where they assist woman who have been sexually and/or physically abused. "I have developed a more keen relationship with myself," she says, "and continue to work on me and my developmental stages and inner conflict I go through every day. I now am ready to let the world know my story and take what happened to me and embrace all the good things of who I am. I am preparing to finally forgive men in general for what one man did to me, and I want to one day forgive him for changing the course of my life and introducing a struggle that will never go away."

"Speaking Truth to Power and OURselves"
Barbara Stone is a courageous "David" of sorts, taking on Goliath in a federal lawsuit against the Florida Bar for racketeering. She has also sued several judges for the legal abuse she has suffered via going to jail and being placed on house arrest for daring to try to save her mother's life from guardianship. In return for filing the most recent lawsuit, the judge in her mother's guardianship, Michael Genden, has issued a "show cause" order as to why she should not be held in contempt of court. The Order lists violating his Order, which prohibits Barbara from having any indirect or direct contact (ie knowing about her mother's neglect by the guardians), but is completely based upon hearsay and is thus, "no evidence." It certainly is replete with hearsay, which will not support a show cause order. The Judge is further trying to hold her in contempt for filing the Motion to Disqualify him due to his adverse interests. What a mess! Florida statutes say the Judge should disqualify himself because the 14th Amendment due process mandates it. See Caperton vs. Massey United States Supreme Court opinion (2009), which states that a judge must disqualify himself if there could be even an appearance of bias or impropriety, whether or not it subjectively exists. I think we have definitely met that standard here. The media will be at Monday's hearing, so let's cheer and encourage Barbara on as she helps write history!

Monique is a survivor of domestic and sexual abuse. Monique endured sexual abuse as a child, and physical abuse at the hands of her abuser for years. Initially it was shame, embarrassment and fear that kept Monique in her situation with her abuser and from speaking out about her childhood sexual abuse. Monique suffered many visible and invisible scars as a result of her abuse. And although she knew the visible ones would heal it was the invisible ones that hurt her the most. Monique finally got up the courage to leave her abuser, but not before he left her with a permanent reminder of their relationship. Monique’s abuser took a cane and hit her in the mouth and knocked out two of her front teeth, ultimately resulting in her smile being changed.
