Not only does no one care – well the political elite and law enforcment– but these entities who are suppose to protect my Mother are actually doing her the greatest harm by protecting PS, AS, CF and Carolyn Toerpe.  It is a crime.  This is a crime. but as you said, no one gives a damn about my Mother.  read the transcripts. Adam Stern cries how when he heard there was abuse at the Sunrise, he knew he had to step in.  The problem was his client Toerpe was the abuser — so AS as he has done in the past blamed it on me.  This is how Stuck v. Cook County came about.  But it was Cynthia Farenga who created the scenario to keep son Jame Struck away from his mother — and then, knowing that Mr. Struck himself has some emotinal problems (who wouldn’t under the circumstance) played him and to date all he wants to do is see his mother.  

 
All my mother wants to do is be with me and all I want is for her to live our her life with the people she loves and trusts — not die in an institution all alone.  That’s what will happen, but then, Toerpe doesn’t have all of my money yet, unless it’s already been taken out of hte Cook County fund ex parte and they’re just playing with me. I called and was told I had no right to inforamtion about the $200,000 Lumbermen’s settlement funds allocated to me via court order.

In Violation of Constitution, Ethiopian Blogger Will Face 18 Years in Prison

Yesterday, the Ethiopian Supreme Court upheld the conviction and extreme sentence of award-winning online journalist Eskinder Nega, who now faces 18 years in prison.  Nega was arrested in September 2011 and charged with “terrorism” under a vague law in Ethiopia that has been used to target online journalists and political dissenters. His trial and appeal faced repeated delays, while international human rights and free expression groups continued to criticize his imprisonment and punishment. EFF, PEN America, the Committee to Protect Journalists, and others campaigned for his release, and a United Nations panel found his conviction to be in violation of international law.

 

Ethiopian Constitution

“Everyone has the right to freedom of expression without any interference. This right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any media of his choice.”

Mohamed Keita of the Committee to Protect Journalists said in response to the Supreme Court’s ruling “The persecution of Eskinder and other journalists is the hallmark of a regime fearful of the opinions of its citizens.”

Let’s all pray for him and if someone has a link to AI or another organization sending him letters and emails, let’s do that too.
