Revoke police license to kill disabled people!

first_imgPeople with untreated mental illness are 16 times more likely to be killed during a police encounter than other civilians approached or stopped by law enforcement, according to a study released December 2015 by the Treatment Advocacy Center. Disability rights journalist David M. Perry, whose son has Down syndrome, documented in research for the Ruderman Family Foundation that as many as half of all people killed by police have a disability. (tinyurl.com/y7hau3fu)Eric Parsa, right, is seen with his mother, Donna Lou, center, and father, Daren Parsa.Witness the case of Eric Parsa, a Louisiana teen with autism who died Jan. 19, 2020, after Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s deputies sat on him for 9 minutes.Parsa’s parents are suing Jefferson Parish Sheriff Joe Lopinto, the deputies involved and the owners of the shopping center where the incident occurred, claiming violations of Eric’s and his parents’ constitutional rights, as well as violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act.Eric began to “experience a sudden sensory outburst” related to his autism, the lawsuit says, and began slapping himself and slapping and grabbing his father. An off-duty reserve deputy handcuffed Eric and sat on his back for the next seven minutes.“Crucially, what the deputy should have done at that point, once things were calm and everything was fine, was they should have taken the weight off of Eric Parsa’s back,” said William Most, attorney for the family, during a news conference. “They should have rolled Eric Parsa onto his side to ensure that he could continue to breathe. But the deputies did not do so.”Over the next several minutes, six more deputies arrived on the scene. One of them relieved the first deputy, getting on Eric’s back and, at one point, putting him in a choke hold, according to the lawsuit. Each of the deputies was aware Eric had special needs, the lawsuit says, but none intervened to move Eric onto his side into a “recovery position.”“It wasn’t until his body had gone limp and he had urinated on himself that deputies rolled him into ‘recovery position,’” the lawsuit says. “By then it was too late.” The Jefferson Parish Coroner’s Office classified the death as an accident.Boston police killingBrian Shea, a Boston member of the Disability Justice and Rights Caucus of Workers World Party related the story of Terence Coleman to Workers World. Coleman, a Black man diagnosed with schizophrenia, was killed by Boston police in 2016 after his mother called for an ambulance to take him to the hospital.Police and prosecutors say he attacked emergency medical technicians with a large knife, but his mother — Hope Coleman who is suing the city — denies her son was armed or posed any dangerTerrence Coleman, who had gone inside the apartment by the time EMTs arrived, became upset when he saw blue flashing lights and told them he didn’t want to go to the hospital — but the EMTs insisted he come with them and tried to grab him.  The officers burst through the door when they heard a scuffle and tackled and shot him.Supporters have renamed Peter’s Park in Boston “Terence Coleman Park,” in his memory and honor. Yudelovich is a  Disability Justice and Rights Caucus activist with neurodivergent and auditory disabilities.

Grey matters

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Grey mattersOn 1 Apr 2003 in Personnel Today Employment rights for retirement-age staff, anti-ageism legislation andchanges to pensions provision are all up for grabs as employers struggle withtheir demographic destiny. Sue Nickson advises on what it means for HR policiesPeople are living and working longer than ever before, and the birth rate isin decline, a trend which is likely to continue for at least 20 years. TheOffice for National Statistics predicts 35 per cent of the workforce will beaged over 45 by 2005, rising to 40 per cent by 2010. Politicians and employers are having to address the complex consequences ofthis demographic trend, for working patterns, retirement ages and pensions. Itseems inevitable that as the population ages, it will become necessary forpeople to work longer. Recent challenges to the validity of UK legislation onunfair dismissal and redundancy rights of the over-65s, together with theEuropean-led drive towards age equality in the workplace, are adding to thedebate on what are and will be acceptable (and legal) age-related practices inthe workplace. Current legislation: unfair dismissal and redundancy Currently, employees who have reached 65, or the normal retirement age for thejob (NRA), are not eligible for statutory redundancy payments and cannotgenerally bring unfair dismissal claims (under sections 156 and 109 EmploymentRights Act 1996). The validity of these exclusions has been in question forsome time. Most recently, in Harvest Town Circle Ltd v Rutherford 2001, claimsfor unfair dismissal and a redundancy payment were brought by Rutherford, whoat 67 was on the face of it excluded from both by his age. It was argued thatthe upper age limit discriminated against men and amounted to unlawful sexdiscrimination, which could not be justified. At first instance, the tribunal agreed. But in August 2002, the Stratfordtribunal – following guidance from the EAT – considered detailed statisticalevidence and found the exclusion did have a disproportionate and unjustifiableimpact upon men. This decision dealt with the statistics at such length and in such detail,that other tribunals are unlikely to dispute the point about disproportionateimpact. It would be a brave employer that took on the burden of disproving thestatistics relied on in this case for some time to come, not least because itwould probably be more expensive to do so than just conceding unfair dismissal.The Secretary of State’s appeal is to be heard by the EAT in May. Future legislation: age discrimination At present, there is no legislation outlawing age discrimination, despiteevidence which suggests it is not a minority issue. A recent report by the Employers’ Forum on Age estimated the annual cost ofageism to the economy is £31bn. While the Government has extolled the economic and social advantages of anage-inclusive workforce, this is supported only by a non-enforceable Code ofPractice, the current version of which is Age Diversity at Work 2002. However, the Government has until December 2006 to implement its commitmentunder Article 13 of the EU Employment Directive 2000 to put in place agediscrimination legislation. In the consultation exercise on the FrameworkDirective (Equality and Diversity: The Way Ahead), which closed in January2003, the Government made certain basic proposals for age discriminationlegislation. A second round of consultation will commence this spring, followedby a final consultation on the draft regulations in spring 2004. The Governmentenvisages the regulations will be in force no earlier than December 2006. The Government proposes that like existing anti-discrimination legislation,the age regulations will outlaw direct discrimination, indirect discrimination,harassment and victimisation. The Directive applies to: – access to employment, self employment or occupation, (including selectioncriteria and recruitment conditions in all branches of activity and includingpromotion) – access to vocational guidance, training, and work experience – employment and working conditions, including dismissals and pay – membership of and involvement in a workers’ or employers’ or employmentorganisation or any professional organisation – virtually all categories of worker except, in most cases, the genuinelyself employed. It will outlaw unjustified age discrimination for all relevantworkers, young or old The Directive allows for justified differences of treatment when acharacteristic constitutes a genuine occupational qualification for the job. Italso provides that differences of treatment on grounds of age may be”objectively and reasonably justified” by a legitimate aim within thecontext of national law. There will no doubt be considerable debate on thispoint during the consultation exercise. The Directive itself gives examples of when discrimination might bejustified, to include allowing: – Special conditions in respect of certain age groups “in order topromote their vocational integration or ensure their protection” – The fixing of minimum conditions of age, professional experience orseniority in service for access to employment or certain advantages linked toemployment – The fixing of a maximum age for recruitment based on the trainingrequirement of the post in question or the need for a reasonable period ofemployment before retirement So far as compulsory retirement is concerned, the Directive will meanemployers will not be able to impose their own retirement age, unless there arecircumstances peculiar to the business which provide an objectivejustification. Future legislation: pensions and tax Increased longevity is posing complex challenges for the affordability ofpensions. While most workers hope for continued rising standards of living inretirement, as many as 3 million people are estimated to be saving inadequatelyfor that purpose. At the same time, occupational schemes are under pressurefrom rising costs, with some schemes being closed or employer contributionscut. The Government’s proposals in the face of this are contained in twoprinciple documents. The Department for Work and Pensions has published a GreenPaper entitled Simplicity, Security and Choice: Working and saving forRetirement. The Treasury and Inland Revenue have also published proposals forthe simplification of pensions taxation in Simplifying the taxation ofpensions: increasing choice and flexibility for all. Both principal documentsare consultation papers. The consultation for the Green Paper closed on 28March. The consultation on the tax proposals closes on 11 April. Although there are no proposals to increase the state pension age, the GreenPaper does propose that people should be encouraged to work past 65 bydeveloping the concept of flexible and phased retirement. It is also proposedthat from 2010, people should gain at least 10 per cent for each year that theydelay drawing their pension (compared to 7.5 per cent now). Further, peopleshould be allowed to remain in the same employment while receiving any pensionbuilt up in that job (this is prohibited under the current tax system).Tax-efficient early retirement, except in cases of ill health, will move fromage 50 to 55 from 2010. The Government hopes to introduce the tax changes vialegislation from April 2004. The combined effect of these age-related issues will be profound. Employersneed to be prepared for the changes ahead if they are to make appropriate andtimely changes to policies, procedures and practices. Those who participate inthe current consultation process on the scope and shape of impending agediscrimination and pension legislation, will be contributing enormously to theobjective of having workable and effective legislation. Sue Nickson is head of employment at Hammonds Over 65s dismissal and redundancy– Pending appeal, employees over theNRA, or if there is none 65, can bring claims for unfair dismissal orredundancy. This is regardless of whether there is a contractual retirementage. It is likely that all such claims will be stayed during the appealprocess, which could go as far as the ECJ and may therefore take many months toresolve– Do not assume that all employees will wish to retire at theNRA or 65. Communicate with those approaching retirement age to discuss theirexpectations and needs– Explore possibilities for alternative employment and/orworking patterns where necessary or desired – Do not rely on impending retirement to resolve problemsrelating to discipline, performance or sickness with older employees; followfair and appropriate procedures in all cases. Assume a genuine and fair reasonfor dismissal will be required, and that a fair procedure towards dismissalmust be followed – Do not select for redundancy by reason of ageMany believe older workers bringbenefits to business such as:– Improved staff retention rates– Higher staff morale– Decreased short-term absenteeism– Higher productivity– Improved public image– Widened customer base– Increased breadth of skillsAvoiding ageism in the workplace– Review the wording of job ads toensure they do not contain age discriminatory conditions– Review or draw up workable policies to avoid any inference ofdiscrimination which could be based on age– Agree a fair and consistent retirement policy with employees.The policy should not impose a ‘normal’ or contractual retirement age unlessthere are particular business circumstances which provide an objectivejustification, and should include the use of flexible, extended or phasedretirement options and/or flexible work patterns such as part-time work, jobsharing and secondments – Regularly analyse the age profile of the business to assessthe age diversity of the workforce– Review pay, incentive and reward schemes to ensure theyobjectively and fairly reward skill and productivity, rather than longevity– Review redundancy selection criteria and policies to ensurepeople are not selected for age-related reasons Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more

TRUMP VS HILLARY – EMBARRASSMENT VS EVIL

first_imgTRUMP VS HILLARY – EMBARRASSMENT VS EVILMaking Sense by Michael ReaganEveryone knows I’m not a Trump supporter.He’s personally embarrassing.He has embarrassed the Republican Party.He has embarrassed the country.He’s right about many things. And he did much better at the second debate.But it doesn’t matter. Unless there’s a miracle, he’s going to lose to Hillary.He’s going to be defeated by the weakest, most unlikable, least trustable candidate the Democrats have nominated since, well, her husband.It’s not just Hillary we’ll be stuck with for four years, by the way. It’ll be a two-fur.We’ll also get four more years of her dirty old man, Bill, who singlehandedly did more to debase and embarrass the office of president than anyone.America is already in big trouble. I’m 71 and I won’t live to see it, but it’s going to get worse before it gets better.It really makes me sad to think about what’s happening to the country, or why.Most young people — the millennial voters everyone’s trying to please — don’t have a clue what’s going wrong now because they don’t know anything about history.They don’t know how America got to be great, or how much better off they are than their parents or grandparents — or why.They don’t know where their great country came from, or who built it, or why immigrants came here, or why the Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.For them, American history started with the iPhone, Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders promise of free college.I was talking to my 38-year-old son the other day. He’s got a 9-month-old daughter and he’s worried about her future.So am I.What kind of country is she going to find after four or — God forbid — eight years of a Clinton co-presidency?Everyone who reads this column knows how I feel about Donald Trump. Trump knows how I feel about Trump. My father in heaven knows.I’m embarrassed. My father would be embarrassed. My mother would be embarrassed. My stepmother would be embarrassed. And rightly so.Trump is no conservative, no Republican, no gentleman, no policy wonk, no answer to America’s prayers or needs — at home or overseas.Trump is Trump, and always will be. He has been as embarrassing as he is now since the day he started to run.The purists on talk radio and in the conservative movement, and the GOP establishment– the chickens who let Trump steal their party instead of their ideas — are jumping ship like rats.Trump isn’t perfect as a human being or a Republican and never will be.But I’m willing to be embarrassed by him for four years if that’s what it takes to stop Hillary.America can’t afford to have her in charge for one hour.Her bad economic ideas, her dishonesty, her corrupt politics, her slimy friends, her Supreme Court choices and her phony family’s family values will start us down a path that will lead to the destruction of the American way of life.That scary thought far outweighs any concern — and embarrassment — I’d have voting for Donald Trump.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Drawing wisdom from the young

first_imgPolitically engaged young people have a historic opportunity to help heal the deep national rifts exposed during the presidential campaign, two prominent speakers told student leaders from campuses across the country at a Harvard forum Saturday.Doris Kearns Goodwin, the veteran presidential historian and commentator, said the current generation has come along “at a time when divisiveness in our country is as great as certainly it’s ever been in my lifetime.”“If this is your rendezvous with destiny to figure out how to better heal some of those wounds and get politics into a place where people can work together again, then it’s great to have that challenge for you,” Goodwin told the assembled students at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics.The panel discussion featuring Goodwin and veteran political analyst David Gergen was among the highlights of the Institute of Politics’ 2017 National Campaign for Political and Civic Engagement conference. Seventy student representatives from 28 campuses took part in the three-day event, which this year focused on how to reconnect the nation’s factions.“There is a real spike now in interest in your generation about what can we do to help … how do we make a difference. I think this is a moment to be asking that question, and this is the opportunity to get engaged,” said Gergen, a professor of public service and co-director of the Kennedy School’s Center for Public Leadership. Gergen advised four U.S. presidents.Massachusetts Congressman Joseph Kennedy delivers the keynote address to the conference participants. Photo by Martha StewartJoe Goodwin ’01, J.D. ’13, the director of the conference, said the election revealed the deep divides in the nation. “We are saying to the kids: ‘We understand the problem, but instead of hand-wringing, let’s roll up our sleeves and find a way’” to reconnect people, said Goodwin, a son of Doris Kearns Goodwin.He said an aim of the conference, which also included a student town hall, break-out sessions, and a keynote address by U.S. Rep. Joe Kennedy, was for students to devise strategies they can pursue on their own campuses with help from the Institute of Politics.Nivedita Khandkar ’19, student chair of the conference organizing committee, said she was impressed at “how respectful the discussion was … It’s kind of a model for how I think society should look.” Khandkar said she hoped her fellow students “will leave with a sense of hope rather than the sense of fear and worry that I know a lot of people have.”Jalen Jennings, a junior from Tennessee State University, said he enjoyed meeting students from across the country and hearing their thoughts. “We all have different views, [but] you come together and you find that in some ways we have the same ideas in some areas,” he said. Jennings, who took part in a breakout group that focused on social media, added, “We are trying to come up with different ideas to make sure news gets published to social media sites that is more credible,” a subject he plans to pursue on his own campus.Shae Omonijo, a junior from the University of Chicago, said a major issue discussed at the conference was that “students really don’t know how to run for a local position,” or even how to become involved in “simple campus engagement like student government.” She hopes to create a document guiding students on her campus on running for office.Natalie Hagy, a junior from Ohio State University, said that as a political moderate in America today, “I feel right now like I’m watching a food fight. I’m just kind of between both sides … I think this conference has kind of energized me a little bit in that aspect” by spurring participants to seek common ground on core issues.Conference Director Joe Goodwin implores participants to take the lessons learned back to their campuses across the country to help heal the divided nation. Photo by Martha StewartAt the forum, Gergen said he understood the direction of President Trump’s early tenure, but that it can lead to other problems.“It’s natural he wants to keep the coalition behind him,” he said. “But increasingly his problem is that he is playing so exclusively to his base that it’s scaring a lot of other Americans, causing enormous distress. And very importantly, it is really, really alienating a lot of our friends and allies around the world at an extraordinarily fast pace.”Gergen and Goodwin cited instances when the nation has faced similar divisions, though episodes that had starkly different outcomes. The fight over extending slavery, for example, led to war. But in other periods, notably the Civil Rights Movement, a fiercely divided nation ultimately came together, Gergen said.Both speakers noted the importance of having unifying leaders as a key to bridging the political divides.
