Real Danger: Restraints and Our Children --
Over the past decade, three GAO reports have shocked the nation. The May 2009 Government Accountability Office's shocking report on selected cases of death and abuse was not about some detention facility for terrorists, but rather about schools, juvenile justice and psychiatric treatment sites caring for America s children. Real Danger: Restraints and Our Children illuminates the controversial practice of physical restraints in a variety of settings. Parents of children killed or injured in restraint, former consumers, treatment staff, administrators on many sides of the debate, and visionary thinkers who offer evidence-based alternatives all contribute to this complex conversation. First person accounts assert that restraints can be abolished as the culture moves from problem solving via force to creating trauma sensitive environments. An original score, lively animation, archival footage, (Walter Cronkite) intimate interviews, home movies, and live action shots taken inside these facilities deliver an unexpectedly uplifting portrayal of great, personal strength in the midst of despair.
Bipartisan Senate opposition blocked swift confirmation Wednesday for President Barack Obama's choice to head the Justice Department's Civil Rights division, Debo Adegbile. The vote was 47-52. (March 5)
Today President Obama was sworn in for a second term in front of his Cabinet, Supreme Court Justices, Congress, Police, Military, Dignitaries and the American Public at the US Capital. Yesterday Barack Obama took the same oath of office of President of The United States in a private ceremony in the White House with Justice John Roberts and family. Both were very proud moments for the Obama family and the United States.
Debo Adegbile, President Barack Obama nominee to head the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice, was shut down by the senate this week. Why? Because of his involvement in the case of Mumia Abu Jamal. Was it all a witch hunt? Watch HuffPost's Jason Linking and Arthur Delaney discuss.
