I Saw Myself From A Different Prospective #Bus

The first time I watched a woman and her two children get on the train at 6:00 am I thought to myself – It’s quite early to have an infant and little girl out on the train. 

I saw her again and again and thought to myself – Wow she does this every day surely there was someone who would give her a ride.

One day I saw her with her children and notice how the conductor was quite annoyed that she didn’t have her ticket ready…

The other day I saw her and she was combing her daughter’s hair on the train (she wasn’t quite ready for that early trip).  I watched her comb the hair and feed her baby in the carriage while riding the train.

One time I watched the other passengers get on the train and stare at her until they passed by –  as if she had leprosy and should have been banned from the train.

I thought to myself – wow I remember getting on the train about 27 years ago when my daughter was an infant and I did not do as well as the woman I watched… It was in that moment that I had great respect for her courage and strength.

Here’s what I’m #Concerned about – this building did not just get into this condition. I passed by it for over 20 years.  What would cause Mendy Katz to force folk to move in 45  minutes in the rain from their condemned home and when did the residents first make a call to the  Brooklyn-based realtor Ernest Schemitsch?

Eighty New Haveners had 45 minutes to pack up their belongings and flee their homes Thursday night when officials temporarily condemned a 41-unit apartment complex on Norton Street because of…

Dark Days in Alabama – #Molestation

These Trump supporters trying to rationalize CHILD MOLESTATION in order to justify voting for Roy Moore is so sickening, it’s almost scary.

Alabama legislators passed a law in July 2010 which makes it a felony crime for a school employee to engage in a sex act with a student. The class B felony crime comes with a punishment of two to 20 years in prison, if convicted.

The history of child protection in America is divisible into three eras.

  1. Colonial Times to 1875;
  2. 1875 to 1962 – when nongovernmental organized child protection agencies began to increase;
  3. 1962 marks the era of government sponsored CPS;

One of the members of the panel states that 40 years ago in 1977 this type of behavior was typical of children in Alabama!

In Mobile Alabama on November 14, 2012 jurors listened to the closing arguments in Mobile County on a case of molestation and was unable to reach a moment. Defense attorney Walter Honeycutt reminded jurors during his summation at the girl was vague about when the oral sex occurred but that it was before a fish fry at about 3 p.m. The defendant testified that he could not have molested the child at that time because he regularly volunteered to cook fish fries on Friday afternoons during Lent at his church and would not have been around the girl.

Again – MOBILE, Alabama    – A hung jury has led to a mistrial in the case of a midtown Mobile man accused of sexually abusing two young girls in their bedroom on Mother’s Day night 2013.

Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Tuesday’s Alabama special election, is credibly accused of sexually preying upon a 14-year-old girl and forcing himself upon a 16-year-old girl as a thirtysomething prosecutor.

He is uniquely disqualified from public office separate and apart from those terrible misdeeds.

He was twice removed as chief justice of his state’s highest court for disrespecting the rule of law: in 2003, for disobeying an order to remove a monument of the 10 Commandments; in 2016, for directing probate judges to ignore a U.S. Supreme Court ruling.

All I have to say is:

3The fining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold: but the LORD trieth the hearts. 4A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a naughty tongue. 5Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his Maker: and he that is glad at calamities shall not be unpunished. 6Children’s children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers. 7Excellent speech becometh not a fool: much less do lying lips a prince. 8A gift is as a precious stone in the eyes of him that hath it: whithersoever it turneth, it prospereth. 9He that covereth a transgression seeketh love; but he that repeateth a matter separateth very friends.
