    What Can Elected Officials Do To End Police Abuse of Citizens?

    in Women

    Tuesday April 7, 2015 is Election Day in Ferguson, Missouri, Chicago, Illinois and a number of cities across the U.S.  Police brutality is a major issue in communities where racism has run rampant throughout the criminal justice system and police have operated as enforcers in an ongoing practice of criminalizing African Americans, Latinos, and low income whites. When will it stop? Many citizens say it's time to change the people in City Hall. But the question is, what can elected officials really do to end police abuse of citizens? Fire the entire police force and start over with new hires? Develop a rigorous retraining program that involves racial sensitivity? Create a Citizen Review Board with the authority to fire police if found guilty of using unnecessary excessive force? Require that police who serve a community must live in the community that they police? Have body cameras on all officers, which must be on and active during all interactions with citizens? Theodore Daffin, a victim of police abuse and a subsequent cover up, shares his story and his hopes of one day receiving justice.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1285

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Linda Dueling from Omaha, Nebraska, a child abuse survivor and active NAASCA volunteer family member. Linda was sexually abused and eventually raped by her Grandpa. This went on until she was about 8 years old. Later, at 12, she would 'fall in love' with a 20 year old who introduced her to IV drugs. At 15 she ended up living on the streets with a boy and they were eventually arrested for 'breaking and entering' when they tried to find shelter. He was sent to Juvenile Hall, but Linda was released to her mother. "Mom slapped and hit me the whole walk home about 12 blocks." She ran away again and experienced a horrible gang rape by a group of 'friends'. Linda says. "I know GOD saved me that night." Linda began using drugs again and meet a boy who would become her husband. "He began hitting me within months," Linda says. "I was beaten daily." It took nearly 2 decades before she joined a church and got clean. For a while things got better. She earned a Certificate in Counseling for Addiction. She built businesses and was seen as a 'success'. "I had over come my addiction and my marriage was now 'healthy' by everyone's standards. Yet I felt dead." In 2008 she tried to take her life. "I was held at the hospital for almost a month. When I left I went into Intensive Outpatient Therapy 5 days a week, four hours a day." In 2010 she'd had enough. "I left for a business trip and never returned home." Her life has improved but she knows she still has a long way to go. She pushes on "Telling this side of my story with out protecting anyone in the process is a new journey."

    This One Step - Older Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse

    in Psychology

    Monday -              Release YOUR Pain


                            Let Go of YOUR Suffering


                            Break YOUR Silence


    Monday’s show is dedicated to survivors who need to take that one step and reveal the truth.  Please don’t think of this special step as being exposed to the world and fearing the worst from people if you tell us what happened to you as a child, but instead know that you have been traumatized enough.  You never did anything wrong.   You deserve and should demand that this load of crap that has been dumped on you be cleaned off of you and out of you!! This trauma is no longer yours!!  Take your poisonous secret, put it in a bag and throw it in the trash.  It is out, gone and never to return because you can’t be a victim ever again!!!  He no longer has that power over you!! 


    It is very true that the damage that he or she has caused is very real and you probably feel tore up from the floor up, but that is just it!  You are now able to heal.  You have stopped the damage and the profuse bleeding and the painful recovery begins.  The healing path is stretched as far as your eyes can see and in fact, the ending is never seen by our eyes, but the path is a different path.  It is a life being surrounded by people who support us and we seek healthy people and make healthier choices. 


    Welcome!  And it all begins with This One Step.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1284

    in Self Help

    SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 4 (and we'll include a bit about TRADITION 4) - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, 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 4: "Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves."Most survivors, unless they are in a crisis, do not put much thought into what happened; the people, places, things, and reactions to events that have long-shaped their life. But if you have not yet taken a look at what traumata shaped your personality, behaviors, fears, and ways of responding in life, Step Four is a good opportunity to stop and think about it. Perhaps you have reached the day when you realize that you are not living your life as you really want to. Perhaps you feel a deep inner longing for healthy, secure attachment, love and a more kind relationship with yourself. You may experience a longing for life as you were told it was supposed to be but you have no evidence that you are living such a life. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery has been active in the 12 Step community for nearly 20 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 5 & TRADITION 5. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: rebecca.edery@gmail.com

    Apart from God, you can do NOthing

    in Spirituality

    John 15:5


    New International Version
    "I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing"


    Some of us think that we brought ourselves here, therefore we abuse the body that he gave us, whether it's sex, alcohol, drugs, tattos and many other things. God is your maker and it's time we recognize that.
    Let's talk about it.

    BEYONCE IS DISINGENUOUS

    in Entertainment

    These artists will make their money by any means necessary as their ego is their product. 


    #FORMATION is another opportunity for a BEYONCE rotation
    and that is ALL it is
    I would rather see your humanitarian efforts than another SUPER BOWL performance BEYONCE! Brushing over KATRINA with a couture fashion shoot on top of a police car does nothing for the victims who are trying to rebuild 10 years later, or the efforts to prevent what happened from happening again
    Apparently BLACKS are easily impressed by a COUTURE fashion shoot set in motion by an overrated pop star. What about #FLINT ?
    FLINT WATER CRISIS is not trending, KATRINA isnt even trending, what is trending is HOT SAUCE. What is trending is RED LOBSTER. 
    So red lobster is benefiting, beyonce is benefiting, but who isnt benefiting? the people. 
    What was the purpose in featuring that imagery if we are not going to SEE you do your humanitarian work? What is the purpose of you saying you are HALF CREOLE and NEGRO ? WHAT DOES THE LYRICS TO THIS SONG #FORMATION have to do with the issues surrounding our people and the tragedies of the world? BEYONCE, you are not a hero, you are not socially conscious, you are a THIEF of knowledge, a distraction, a puppet of ignorance. 
    The song is catchy, the video is entertaining, but that is all it is. Michael Jackson coupled his videos with lyrics and EFFORTS!!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING BEYONCE?! People, stop being zombies, wake up and stop worshipping lackluster con artistry
