Silence from Gov. Cuomo on Sex Offender Scandal

Governor Andrew Cuomo has failed to protect vulnerable women and children from sexual predators within his agencies

Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his administration are placing convicted sex offenders in group homes with the developmentally disabled

Governor Cuomo and agency heads involved remain silent, they appear to be out of control and have no regard for the safety or equal rights of 1,000,000 New Yorkers with disabilities.”

— Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jonathan Carey Foundation was established by civil rights and disability rights advocate Michael Carey to protect our most vulnerable, which includes all people with disabilities. Thousands of people with developmental disabilities are being sexually assaulted and raped within New York State’s extremely dangerous mental health agencies and group homes and rarely are there ever any criminal prosecutions. The cover-ups are happening all of the time because Governor Cuomo has directed the internal reporting of sexual assaults and the bypassing of 911 call systems and local police. The State’s MO, if it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen. The cover-ups of sexual assaults and rapes are massive in scope.

On top of almost all sexual assaults and rapes of our most vulnerable being covered-up, Governor Cuomo and his agencies are unconscionably placing convicted sex offenders in these State and private facilities and group homes. The Commissioners of the Department of Corrections and the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities and anyone else involved are directly endangering the safety and welfare of incompetent individuals.

Governor Andrew Cuomo is ultimately in charge, these are his mental health agencies that are rampant with sexual assaults and rape. These agencies operate almost identically to the Catholic Church. These illegal practices must be immediately stopped.

New York State penal law 260.25 says it is a felony criminal offense to Endanger the Welfare of an Incompetent or Physically Disabled Person.

“A person is guilty of endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree when he knowingly acts in a manner likely to be injurious to the physical, mental or moral welfare of a person who is unable to care for himself or herself because of physical disability, mental disease or defect.

Endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree is a class E felony.”

Other state and federal laws require safe living environments for all individuals with disabilities that are free from abuse and neglect.

These statements were just released by New York State Senator Rob Ortt who is also the Mental Health Committee Chairman;

“According to the report, these sex offenders are being placed in homes without notice, raising concerns about how widespread this occurrence may be.”

“This practice must stop immediately,” said Ortt. “In no circumstance should the most vulnerable members of our society be placed in the same home as individuals convicted of preying on the vulnerable. The Level of government incompetence displayed here is astonishing.”

Governor Cuomo and agency heads involved remain silent, they appear to be out of control and have no regard for the safety or equal rights of 1,000,000 New Yorkers with disabilities. It is time for the top officials involved in these criminal cover-ups of rapes and deaths and the placement of sex offenders with the disabled which are civil rights atrocities to be investigated by federal authorities, indicted and held fully accountable for their crimes.

Advocacy groups talk to Congress about PRIME Act, dairy farm crisis in America

Government regulations favor the industrial food system and hinder local commerce. We need to change this to see America’s small farms get the chance they need for economic survival.”

— Liz Reitzig, Founder Real Food Consumer Coalition

WASHINGTON, DC, VA, US, September 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Constituents from all over the country will spend the day Wednesday, September 26, 2018, speaking to their Representatives and Senators about small farms and local food. To end the day, advocates will host “A Taste of Small Farm America” reception in the Senate Dirksen Building room 106 beginning at 5:30pm. The event for staffers, members, and constituents will feature top D.C. chefs who will pair their talents with those of local farmers. The chefs will each prepare a “small bites” dish highlighting the fresh farm ingredients. The cooperation of chef with farmers emphasizes the importance of small producers feeding their communities.

One topic on the advocate’s minds includes the PRIME (Processing Revival and Intrastate Meat Exemption) Act (H.R. 2657).

“I introduced my bipartisan, bicameral PRIME Act to ease onerous federal rules that burden small farms and ranches,” says Congressman and farmer Thomas Massie (R-KY). “I know first-hand the difficulties faced by small producers. In order to sell individual cuts of locally raised meat, farmers must send their animals to USDA-inspected slaughterhouses–often hundreds of miles away. The PRIME Act would allow states to expand the current “custom exemption” and allow intrastate sales of custom-slaughtered beef, pork, and lamb to consumers, restaurants, and grocery stores.”

There are currently 22 bi-partisan co-sponsors on the Bill.

“Interest in direct sales is growing rapidly,” says Liz Reitzig of the Real Food Consumer Coalition. “Government regulations favor the industrial food system and hinder local commerce. We need to change this to see America’s small farms get the chance they need for economic survival. Family farms ensure the quality of what we eat, preserve environmental conservation, and enrich our communities. As Americans, we should have the right to choose the foods we need from the producers we want to support.”

The group will also speak to the current restrictions on dairy farmers producing and direct marketing raw milk for consumption. An exemption policy for small farms producing raw milk would allow farmers to provide product to their community members who want it, giving small-scale dairy farmers greater choice in production and marketing.

This event is sponsored by Real Food Consumer Coalition, Organic Consumers Association, and Organic and Natural Health Association. Taste of Small Farm America brings together a collective force of people and organizations, with unique capabilities, joined together to share our knowledge of how family farms ensure the quality of what we eat, preserve environmental conservation, and enrich our communities.

UN Human Rights Council Condemns Forced Psychiatric Practices

Ban Electroshock (ECT) Device Being Used on Children, the Elderly and Vulnerable Patients

Ban Electroshock (ECT) Device Being Used on Children, the Elderly and Vulnerable Patients

Elder Abuse - Ban ECT

CCHR Florida

CCHR urges need to ban coercive treatment and electroshock following the United Nations Human Rights Council condemnation of forced psychiatric treatment.

There needs to be a U.S. and worldwide ban on the use of ECT so that a humane mental health system can exist.”

— Jan Eastgate, international president of CCHR

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The United Nations Human Rights Council has condemned forced psychiatric treatment, including electroshock therapy (ECT), and called for a repeal of laws that allow coercive practices in the mental health field. According to the Council’s recent “Mental health and human rights” report, countries “should reframe and recognize these practices as constituting torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment…”[1] The report resulted from a consultation held in Geneva in May, attended by UN Special Rapporteurs, Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), such as Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), and persons with mental health disabilities. CCHR, a mental health watchdog said it concurs with the Council’s report that coercive treatment should be outlawed.

CCHR says the report also reinforces the mental health watchdog’s call for ECT to be prohibited. Jan Eastgate, international president of CCHR, said, “ECT was invented in fascist Italy in 1938 using 80 volts of electricity.[2] After the initial electric shock had seared through the first patient’s head, he screamed, ‘Not another one! It’s deadly.’”[3] Today, electroshock (electroconvulsive) treatment uses more than five times the voltage used in the 1940s and during the past 25 years, there have been an estimated 7,500 deaths linked to ECT in the U.S. alone.

The UN report also published that Special Rapporteur Catalina Devandas Aguilar agreed that “involuntary interventions, such as electroconvulsive therapies, psychosurgery, forced sterilization and other invasive, painful and irreversible treatments, continued to be permitted, contrary to the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.”

The Special Rapporteur on torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, Nils Melzer, also condemned as unlawful forced institutionalization that may amount to torture and ill-treatment.

Despite such damning findings — views held by experts since ECT’s inception — the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has never required the electroshock device manufacturers to conduct clinical trials proving safety of the devices, nor does the FDA regulate these ECT devices that are equated with torture. “A person can be administered ECT at the direction of psychiatrists who claim it is needed, even though they can’t explain how it supposedly works,” stated Diane Stein, president of the Florida chapter of CCHR. “Mental health laws in the U.S. also allow ECT to be given involuntarily in certain circumstances and therefore, by internationally recognized standards, non-consenting individuals are being tortured throughout our country.”

CCHR says it’s not the first time the UN committee on torture has defined ECT in terms of torture. On Feb. 1, 2013, Juan E. Méndez, the then Special Rapporteur of the committee called upon states to “impose an absolute ban on all forced and non-consensual medical interventions against persons with disabilities, including the non-consensual administration of psychosurgery, electroshock and mind-altering drugs…”[4] He said that forced psychiatric interventions, when committed against persons with psychosocial disabilities, “satisfies both intent and purpose required under the article 1 of the Convention against Torture, notwithstanding claims of ‘good intentions’ by medical professionals…”

However, instead of ensuring brain-damaging electroshock is abolished, the FDA and American Psychiatric Association (APA) want ECT to be more broadly administered with reduced restrictions.

Wayne Ramsay, J.D., a volunteer attorney for the Law Project for Psychiatric Rights, wrote that ECT “damages the brain sufficiently to impair whatever thinking the ‘patient’ was engaging in.” In Understanding the Brain, a course consisting of 18 hours of recorded lectures by Jeanette Norden, Ph.D., professor of Cell & Developmental Biology at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and Professor of Neurosciences at Vanderbilt University College of Arts and Sciences, she said: “Each time a seizure occurs, neurons die.”[5]

Yet the APA recommends removing “brain damage” from the ECT consent form[6] and say the procedure is “safer” today.

Conversely, Mr. Ramsay stated: “ECT advocates deceive the public, patients, legislators, and judges by claiming ECT as administered today is different and less harmful than in the past.” An “autopsy study, EEGs, and observation of those who have received ECT indicate those given ECT with anesthesia, a muscle paralyzing drug, and forced breathing of air or oxygen experience the same brain damage, memory loss, and intellectual impairment as those given ECT without these modifications,” he warned.

In its remarks, the UN Human Rights Council report stated: “During the interactive dialogue, representatives of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights” was “one of many speakers that reiterated the call to shift from the biomedical model and deprivation of liberty in mental health care, to increased focus on the root causes” and “to promote a recovery approach.”

CCHR urges signing the petition to ban ECT at Ban Electroshock (ECT) Device Being Used on Children, the Elderly and Vulnerable Patients

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information please visit www.cchrflorida.org

Cuomo Ignores Calls to Stop Convicted Sex Offenders from being Placed in Group Homes

Governor Cuomo must immediately stop the placement of convicted sex offenders in group homes and remove the many dozens, if not hundreds, already placed. These illegal practices grossly endanger our most vulnerable.

For years Governor Andrew Cuomo and his administration have been placing convicted sex offenders in group homes with the developmentally disabled

No sex offender can ever be placed with extremely vulnerable people with developmental disabilities whom are often as defenseless as children. It is illegal and a recipe for sexual assaults and rape.”

— Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — “New York State Attorney General Barbara Underwood must legally direct Governor Andrew Cuomo, the Commissioners of DOCCS and OPWDD, as well as the Executive Director of the Justice Center, to immediately cease from placing convicted sex offenders from prison into state and private group homes for people with disabilities. The Attorney General must also ensure that all sex offenders placed within the system statewide are swiftly removed to protect our most vulnerable from preventable sexual assaults or rape. Anyone involved in committing these felonies must be held accountable to the full extent of the law.”

Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate – Founder of the Jonathan Carey Foundation whose 13 year old son Jonathan who had autism was killed by his caregivers in 2007

“Sex offenders have no business being housed with New York’s most vulnerable population, and Andrew Cuomo must reverse course now! The thought alone is excruciating to this parent of a child with a developmental disability. I can’t believe something so reckless was even conceived by this administration, much less approved.”

“This outrageous and unacceptable plan must be stopped today, before a tragedy occurs. Not one sex offender should be moved into one of these facilities.”

– Marc Molinaro – Gubernatorial Candidate & father of a child with developmental disabilities

“The notion that New York’s most fragile population is being forced to live side by side with our most dangerous criminals disgusts me and it needs to stop immediately. This administration is endangering the lives and well-being of developmentally-disabled New Yorkers,”

Farley, the mother of a 16-year-old son with severe autism said, “Unless this stops immediately, the message is that our children don’t matter, that they are expendable because they are developmentally disabled.”

– Chele Farley – U.S. Senate Candidate & mother of a child with severe autism

“Even with the limited information I have on this individual, I can’t understand how a convicted felon, who was able to be sentenced and serve time in maximum-security state prison, could also be placed in a OPWDD state facility with vulnerable entities. I am very concerned for the Ashe’s and the safety of their son. I stand in strong opposition to this felon being placed in this home with defenseless residents like Scotty.

– Jeffrey J. Murphy – Washington County Sheriff – friend of the Ashe family who had to fight extremely hard to keep a level 2 convicted sex offender from being placed in a state run group home with their developmentally disabled son

“Recently, I met with Michael Carey. The Primary purpose of the meeting was to discuss his concerns, and those of many others, with the placement of convicted, registered sex offenders in OPWDD Group homes.”

“To the extent these concerns have State Government and Statewide impact, I assured him that your office would take those concerns seriously and investigate any and all credible allegations of criminal conduct.”

– J. Anthony Jordan – District Attorney of Washington County in a letter to NYS Attorney General Barbara Underwood on September 18, 2018

https://wnyt.com/news/plans-to-move-sex-offender-into-group-home-delayed/5056470/

https://poststar.com/news/local/state-halts-sex-offender-move-to-group-home-at-least/article_b2fd1dfa-2776-53bc-b37e-a7e425e54c76.html

A number of NYS legislators have also expressed major concerns to Governor Cuomo directly regarding convicted sex offenders being wrongfully placed in state and private group homes throughout New York State.

“It is illegal; it is a class E felony to Endanger the Welfare of Incompetent and Physically Disabled Person. Moving convicted sex offenders in with the developmentally disabled, which in most cases is no different than moving them in with children, knowingly places our most vulnerable in a likely position of being sexually assaulted or raped.” – Michael Carey

New York State Penal Law 260.25 which finally became a felony offense in 2012 after a 5 year battle with New York State following the death of Jonathan Carey cannot be any clearer.

“A person is guilty of endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree when he knowingly acts in a manner likely to be injurious to the physical, mental or moral welfare of a person who is unable to care for himself or herself because of physical disability, mental disease or defect.

Endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree is a class E felony.” NYS Penal Law 260.25

"No sex offender can ever be placed with extremely vulnerable people with developmental disabilities whom are often as defenseless as children. It is illegal and a recipe for sexual assaults and rape." – Michael Carey

Governor Cuomo and his administration are out of control and appear to have no regard for the safety or equal rights of 1,000,000 New Yorkers with disabilities. It is time for the top officials involved in these criminal cover-ups of rapes and deaths and the placement of sex offenders with the disabled which are civil rights atrocities to be indicted and held fully accountable for their crimes.

18 Years in the Making, Georgia’s WIN List Celebrates Year of Women in Georgia

Georgia’s WIN List’s record-setting slate of 36 endorsed women.

With Stacey Abrams and Sarah Riggs Amico at the top of the Democratic ticket, Georgia’s WIN List endorses a one-two punch to the GOP patriarchy.

“Stand With WINning Women” event celebrates WIN List’s record-setting slate of 36 endorsed women, the Year of Women in Georgia, and the 18 years of success.

Tuesday night’s rally fulfills the dreams of our founders who 18 years ago set a goal to change the face of power in Georgia.”

— Anna Beck, Georgia's WIN List Board Chair

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Georgia’s WIN List, the state’s leading political action committee dedicated to electing Democratic women, celebrates a record-setting 36 endorsed candidates during a campaign rally on September 25.

The “Stand With WINning Women” rally is scheduled for Tuesday evening September 25th at The Georgia Freight Depot. The event celebrates the historic “first” of women nominees at the top of Georgia’s ticket: Stacey Abrams for Governor and Sarah Riggs Amico for Lt. Governor; as well as a record-setting number of diverse women seeking legislative seats long held by Republicans.

“The women who are running for statewide office and legislative seats in Georgia are by far the most qualified slate we’ve ever endorsed in our 18-year history,” said Anna Beck, WIN List board chair. “We see electing these down-ballot women as a crucial factor in giving Governor Stacey Abrams a legislature she can work with in January 2019.”

During the rally, several of the endorsed candidates will address hundreds of avid supporters. Candidate tables staffed by campaign volunteers will recruit volunteers to make calls, write postcards, or knock on doors and offer literature or yard signs. Checks will be presented to all of the endorsed women during the event.

WIN has helped elect more than 60 women over the years, 33 of whom currently serve. Among those currently serving are the state’s first LGBTQ representatives, the first two Latina representatives, and the first Vietnamese-American representative. Additionally, Georgia leads the nation for the number of African-American women in its legislature.

WIN List’s Executive Director and Founding Chair Melita Easters reports Georgia is tied with Maine for the most Democratic women candidates – 91 – on any November ballot nationwide. Further, Georgia joins Indiana as the only two states nationwide with Democratic women as nominees for both of the top two governing positions. The third state is Hawaii, where the nominees are both Republican women. EMILY’s List, the nation’s leading PAC for women, has also endorsed 26 of the Georgia’s WIN List candidates – the most ever endorsed in Georgia.

With three additional WIN List endorsed women seeking statewide constitutional offices – Janice Laws for Insurance Commissioner and Lindy Miller and Dawn Randolph for Public Service Commission seats – Georgia is in the top tier of states for the number of women on the statewide ballot.

“Tuesday night’s rally fulfills the dreams of our founders who 18 years ago set a goal to change the face of power in Georgia,” said Anna Beck, WIN List board chair. “We are thrilled to be presenting the largest number of candidate checks ever written in WIN List’s history and to announce the total candidate contributions for the year will triple any previous year. We could not be more happy to have Georgia on the cutting edge for presenting qualified and diverse women candidates in this national Year of Women in politics.”

Gov. Cuomo still silent on convicted sex offenders living in group homes

The most dangerous people and criminals are those that protect and shield sexual predators and rapists allowing them to continue to rape and destroy more innocent victims’ lives – Governor Andrew Cuomo is the worst of the worst and extremely dangerous.

Gov. Cuomo and Attorney General Underwood are aware that convicted sex offenders are living in state and private group homes with the developmentally disabled

The State’s MO, if it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen. The cover-ups of sexual assaults and rapes are massive in scope.”

— Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jonathan Carey Foundation was established by civil rights and disability rights advocate Michael Carey to protect our most vulnerable, which includes all people with disabilities. Thousands of people with developmental disabilities are being sexually assaulted and raped within New York State’s extremely dangerous mental health agencies and group homes and rarely are there ever any criminal prosecutions. The cover-ups are easy because Governor Cuomo has directed the internal reporting and the bypassing of 911 call systems and local police. The State’s MO, if it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen. The cover-ups of sexual assaults and rapes are massive in scope.

On top of almost all sexual assaults and rapes of our most vulnerable being covered-up, Governor Cuomo and his agencies are placing convicted sex offenders in these facilities and group homes.

http://www.adirondackdailyenterprise.com/news/local-news/2018/09/group-finds-sex-offenders-in-local-homes-for-developmentally-disabled/

The three agencies directly involved in this illegal scheme which directly endangers the welfare of incompetent and physically disabled people, a class E felony in New York State are; the Department of Corrections (DOCCS), the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) and the Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs (Justice Center). The first two agencies are placing the convicted sex offenders and putting people with developmental disabilities at great risk of being sexually assaulted and raped and the Justice Center is guarding these illegal practices. Obviously, everyone knows that placing convicted sex offenders within facilities and group homes with individuals that are developmentally disabled is extremely dangerous and illegal.

The questions now are why would the Commissioner of DOCCS, OPWDD and the Executive Director of the Justice Center take such illegal actions to put our most vulnerable in direct danger? The orders must have come directly from the very top; no one in their right mind can justify these blatant illegal actions. Who would risk their massive salaries to place sex offenders in with people with disabilities unless they were forced to do so?

Here are the heads of these three New York State agencies;

Acting Commissioner Anthony J. Annucci
New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision
Anthony J. Annucci was named the Acting Commissioner of the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, effective May 1, 2013. Prior to that he served as the Executive Deputy Commissioner since October 2007.

Kerry A. Delaney is the Acting Commissioner of the New York State Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). In this role Ms. Delaney heads one of New York State’s largest agencies, with a mandate to provide services and supports to more than 130,000 people with intellectual or developmental disabilities…
There are distinct reasons why these individuals have still not been confirmed by the New York State Senate and have been acting Commissioners for years.

Denise Miranda is the Executive Director of the NYS Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs. Thousands of reported sexual assaults and rapes of people with disabilities are reported to this fraudulent and extremely corrupt State agency and almost all are covered-up. Miss Miranda is running an agency that systematically obstructs justice, discriminates against and violates the civil rights of people with special needs and protects countless sexual predators. The Justice Center has told a 75 year old mother who has fought ferociously to keep a sex offender from being moved from a maximum security prison into her son’s group home that they could do nothing, which is ludicrous.

Governor Cuomo and his administration are out of control and appear to have no regard for the safety or equal rights of 1,000,000 New Yorkers with disabilities. It is time for the top officials involved in these criminal cover-ups of rapes and deaths and the placement of sex offenders with the disabled which are civil rights atrocities to be indicted and held fully accountable for their crimes.

Communities Throughout the Country Kick Off Diaper Need Awareness Week, September 24 – 30, 2018

Diaper Need Awareness Week is a signature initiative of the National Diaper Bank Network.

Diaper Need Awareness Week is a signature initiative of the National Diaper Bank Network.

According to a 2017 study by Huggies and the National Diaper Bank Network, Diaper Need and Its Impact on U.S. Families, one-in-three U.S. families (36 percent) are in diaper need.

1 in 3 U.S. families struggles to provide enough diapers for their baby. Proclamations, diaper drives and activities slated for Diaper Need Awareness Week.

All families should have an adequate supply of diapers for their children. Diaper Need Awareness Week recognizes that small things affect big things. Diapers matter.”

— Joanne Goldblum, CEO National Diaper Bank Network

NEW HAVEN, CONNECTICUT, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, marks the beginning of Diaper Need Awareness Week (Sept. 24 – 30, 2018), and communities across the country are taking steps to help the one in three U.S. families that struggles to provide enough diapers for their baby.

An often hidden consequence of poverty, diaper need impacts the physical, mental, and economic well-being of children and families.

Led by the National Diaper Bank Network, more than 200 local diaper bank programs are working with individuals, community organizations, and elected officials to help get clean diapers to babies who need them.

In fact, state and local officials from Maine to Texas, and North Carolina to California have issued proclamations recognizing Diaper Need Awareness Week, as well as the vital work of diaper bank programs in supporting children and families.

Also throughout the week, many diaper bank programs are involved in community-wide diaper drives and fundraising campaigns that will help sustain their respective diaper distribution efforts throughout the year.

“All families should have an adequate supply of diapers for their children,” said Joanne Goldblum, founder and CEO of the National Diaper Bank Network. “Diaper Need Awareness Week recognizes that small things affect big things. Diapers matter. And, for families in need, diaper banks frequently provide the only resources available to help moms, dads, grandparents and other caregivers obtain the diapers needed to keep a child healthy.”

Government programs designed to help children do not provide funding for diapers, a basic necessity for all babies. There are currently 5.2 million infants and toddlers living in low-wage families, many of who face a daily struggle to secure a necessary supply of diapers. According to the Center for Economic and Policy Research, the poorest 20 percent of Americans who buy diapers spend nearly 14 percent of their post-tax income on diapers.

Of families in diaper need, three-in-five parents (57%) miss work or school due to a lack of sufficient diapers required by childcare, day care or early education programs to care for a baby or toddler. As a result, parents experiencing diaper need missed an average of four days of work or school in the past month (source: Diaper Need and Its Impact on U.S. Families, 2017).

Seventy-three percent of all families feel they’re not being good parents when their children are left too long in dirty diapers, while one-in-three households in need experience feeling stressed or overwhelmed by diapering always or often (source: Diaper Need and Its Impact on U.S. Families, 2017).

As the founding sponsor of the National Diaper Bank Network, Huggies has provided ongoing support for the organization and has donated more than 200 million diapers and baby wipes, including critical donations during times of crisis.

Yes, we now and finally no longer have mere allegations of predatory behavior including even criminal intent and corruption. Instead, we have two powerful and unimpeachable public records…”

— David Howe, SubscriberWise founder and America's child ID guardian

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, September 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for communications and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced the exchange of what he contends is the most comprehensive proof of state and federal car-rental UDAAPs (Unfair, Deceptive, Abusive Acts or Practices) to the United States of America federal and state law enforcement agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Florida Attorney General, Pam Bondi’s Office including Consumer Protection Director Victoria Butler.

In addition, the mountain of evidence, along with two public records each containing sworn testimony with incredibly contradictory statements and questionable courtroom exhibits, have been provided to staff members of the Honorable United States Senator Sherrod Brown, including colleagues from Honorable Senator Brown’s Office who work for the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Other United States Senators’ staff members, including the Honorable Elizabeth Warren, the Honorable Bill Nelson, and the Honorable Charles Schumer, have been alerted to what Howe insists are the relentless abuses perpetrated against United States Citizens, as well as our sisters and brothers who visit our beloved and law-loving nation from around the world.

“MISSION ACCOMPLISHED,” proclaimed David Howe, SubscriberWise founder, FICO Professor, and Identity Guardian for babies, for girls, and for boys. “Yes, we now and finally no longer have mere allegations of predatory behavior including even criminal intent and corruption. Instead, we have two powerful and unimpeachable public records, each containing sworn testimony — including from the same witness involved in the scheme — that I firmly argue reveal in the most remarkable terms a sophisticated cover-up that evolved into a grand-story with patently false testimony and exhibits.

SEE: https://www.elliott.org/blog/enterprise-determines-damaged-rental/ (‘Damage Evaluator’ and notice the photo with the clear disclaimer regarding ‘Bumper Scrapes’; compare to sworn manager testimony taken under-oath during photographic-exhibit cross-examination that proves consumer financial harm)

“And it’s all now on the public record under the bright light of day – so obviously and so undeniably contrary to the industry marketing and proclamations that otherwise deceive the public into reducing caution (i.e. taking photographs of pre-existing vehicle condition including nearly invisible 'wear and tear' that is later used to implicate as part of the scam) when renting a vehicle and driving off the lot. It’s a wholly unfair and abusive system that ensures self-implication when innocent consumers mistakenly rely – through marketing and advertising that work precisely as intended – on the expectation of the ‘good faith and fair dealing covenant’; a standard and best-practice only ethical and honest companies engage and strive for with zeal.

“It’s true,” Howe confirmed. “The publicly trumpeted ‘damage’ protocols are now proved disgraced in the most obvious manner one could imagine. And remarkably, that's only part of the story with this particularly predatory scheme that will continue to get more and more scrutiny as lawmakers and others pour over the two public records including audio and video documentation of the abusive and illicit encounter. In fact, only a read of the court testimony can fully reveal the incredible violations of FTC and CFPB rules and regulations, as well as a myriad of state and federal consumer violations that would make even an infant’s head spin because of the abuse and injustice so shamefully evident on the permanent public records.

“So today, as I officially and finally pass the baton and move on from this incredibly frustrating and painful life-event, I want to express the most sincere gratitude a human being can muster for all those who have aided and assisted me in bringing this harmful behavior to light,” continued Howe. “And, of course, it’s not possible for me to adequately thank each and every person. It’s not possible for me to thank each and every agency who came to side with truth and justice. For me, each is an ‘army of allies’ and I remain profoundly grateful.

“But, in particular, there is one agency and one individual that indeed do deserve extraordinary thanks and recognition,” Howe insisted. “There is one agency that I must single-out for a loud and clear recognition that otherwise allowed a temporarily fallen-victim to get back on his feet and raise his head high and proud for the world to know and see.

“That agency is the Lee County Port Authority Police Department at the SW FL Fort Myers International Airport. And that individual is a dedicated and professional law-enforcement officer who delivered the most significant contribution to truth and justice in terms of exposing the facts and details associated with this financial rental scandal relentlessly exacted against the public ‘en masse’.

“Yes, it’s simply a fact that without the incredibly comprehensive and thorough independent investigation report, including sworn witness statements from the same individual who I feel eagerly and brazenly neglected the facts in sworn testimony in a United States of America Court of Law and in the presence of the Honorable Archie B. Hayward Jr. in Lee County, Florida, there could be no possibility of exposing this extreme bad act and cover-up.

“I have no doubt that without the officer’s demonstrated due-diligence and unwavering commitment to the details and the facts from other actors involved — who also directly and indirectly contradicted the fantasy and fiction so desperately concocted under-oath in Judge Hayward’s courtroom — there could be no possibility of exposing this extreme bad act and cover-up,” added Howe.

“And, let the record reflect now and forever, the same must be stated regarding the extraordinary investigative facts so powerfully exposed by the high-definition photos that the officer thoughtfully included in his remarkable work of art that so profoundly and so unequivocally impeached the scheme that was presented under-oath nearly two years later in the Lee County Justice Center in the 20th Judicial Circuit, Honorable Archie B. Hayward Jr.

SEE: https://southfloridatrial.foxrothschild.com/tag/florida-spoliation-of-evidence/ (court testimony proves manager conveniently failed to safeguard video that was used to implicate – even after recorded audio proving video was viewed. Both police and victim made repeated demands to view video to no avail. Manager testified to court having no awareness of otherwise common-sense duty to preserve evidence.)

“Yes, let the record again reflect the baton is passed,” Howe affirmed. “Law enforcement, Congress, major media, and – most importantly, the USA public and our neighbors from around the world, can now and forever know the truth. The sad, harmful, and frightening truth about the very real financial harms that await the renting public because of an industry operating in the disgraceful and conspicuous absence of uniform and predictable standards.

“As for whom I consider the criminal predators, for them no amount of justification, no amount of marketing, no amount of spin, no amount of human effort will ever hide or conceal the unethical and harmful deeds they level with zeal, shame, and disgust against honest and innocent renters past, present and future,” Howe concluded.

NY Gov. Cuomo & AG Underwood allowing sexual assault cover-ups

Governor Andrew Cuomo has failed to protect vulnerable children and women from sexual predators within his agencies

Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Attorney General Underwood are aware that thousands of sexual assaults of the disabled are covered-up

The questions now are why would the Commissioner of DOCCS, OPWDD and the Executive Director of the Justice Center take such illegal actions to put our most vulnerable in direct danger?”

— Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On top of almost all sexual assaults and rapes of our most vulnerable being covered-up, Governor Cuomo and his agencies are placing convicted sex offenders in these facilities and group homes. The Commissioners of the Department of Corrections and the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities are directly endangering the safety and welfare of incompetent individuals.

The Jonathan Carey Foundation was established by civil rights and disability rights advocate Michael Carey to protect our most vulnerable, which includes all people with disabilities. Thousands of people with developmental disabilities are being sexually assaulted and raped within New York State’s extremely dangerous mental health agencies and group homes and rarely are there ever any criminal prosecutions. The cover-ups are easy because Governor Cuomo has directed the internal reporting and the bypassing of 911 call systems and local police. The State’s MO, if it isn’t documented, it didn’t happen. The cover-ups of sexual assaults and rapes are massive.

Governor Andrew Cuomo is operating his mental health agencies that are rampant with sexual assaults and rape almost identically to the Catholic Church. These illegal practices must be stopped and the officials involved must be criminally charged and indicted.

http://www.adirondackdailyenterprise.com/news/local-news/2018/09/group-finds-sex-offenders-in-local-homes-for-developmentally-disabled/

The three agencies directly involved in this illegal scheme which directly endangers the welfare of incompetent and physically disabled people, a class E felony in New York State are; the Department of Corrections (DOCCS), the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) and the Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs (Justice Center). The first two agencies are placing the convicted sex offenders and putting people with developmental disabilities at great risk of being sexually assaulted and raped and the Justice Center is guarding these illegal practices. Obviously, everyone knows that placing convicted sex offenders within facilities and group homes with individuals that are developmentally disabled is extremely dangerous and illegal.

The questions now are why would the Commissioner of DOCCS, OPWDD and the Executive Director of the Justice Center take such illegal actions to put our most vulnerable in direct danger? The orders must have come directly from the very top; no one in their right mind can justify these blatant illegal actions. Who would risk their massive salaries to place sex offenders in with people with disabilities unless they were forced to do so?

Here are the heads of these three New York State agencies;

Acting Commissioner Anthony J. Annucci
New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision
Anthony J. Annucci was named the Acting Commissioner of the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, effective May 1, 2013. Prior to that he served as the Executive Deputy Commissioner since October 2007.

Kerry A. Delaney is the Acting Commissioner of the New York State Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). In this role Ms. Delaney heads one of New York State’s largest agencies, with a mandate to provide services and supports to more than 130,000 people with intellectual or developmental disabilities…
There are distinct reasons why these individuals have still not been confirmed by the New York State Senate and have been acting Commissioners for years.

Denise Miranda is the Executive Director of the NYS Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs. Thousands of reported sexual assaults and rapes of people with disabilities are reported to this fraudulent and extremely corrupt State agency and almost all are covered-up. Miss Miranda is running an agency that systematically obstructs justice, discriminates and violates the civil rights of people with special needs and protects countless sexual predators. The Justice Center has told a 75 year old mother who has fought ferociously to keep a sex offender from being moved from a maximum security prison into her son’s group home that they could do nothing.

Governor Cuomo and his administration are out of control and appear to have no regard for the safety or equal rights of 1,000,000 New Yorkers with disabilities. It is time for the top officials involved in these criminal cover-ups of rapes and deaths and the placement of sex offenders with the disabled which are civil rights atrocities to be indicted and held fully accountable for their crimes.

If you would like to help advocate and protect our most vulnerable and help fight to end this extreme corruption, please consider making a tax deductible gift to the Jonathan Carey Foundation. Thank you.
