From KD – we are still looking for activist attorney Andy Ostrowski, taken from his home by officers against his will last week

No one from any of the social media or boards we know has heard from him, however, recently an unknown woman claiming to be a relative wrote to all of us to say he is fine, this has happened before and is a private matter and not to enquire further.

Whooooa.  How many times have we heard this one before.  No proof of this, never heard from her before, but it seems she “suddenly” can find all the right emails.

I find her email (without any proof of her assertions) to be most alarming.

In any case, here is an exchange of emails:  Please pray for Andy he is safe and will be released soon.  He is an amazing, talented, kind light worker and we are all very, very concerned for him.

I am including all the emails, because they may include witnesses to a crime:  false arrest and kidnapping of OA.  All emails have been forwarded to the FBI.

Andy, as a long time activist may be in grave danger.

Tim Lahrman was taken into custody on a bogus 18 year old warrant.  He was under a gurdianship and should have never been held.  Within weeks after leaving prison, he had a heart attack and died.  This is one method for disappearing people the system does not like, and a serious heart issue right after an illegal jail stint is seriously alarming. I hope his loved ones sue for wrongful death, wrongful imprisonment, false arrest, but I have not heard that has been done yet.

Subject: Re: Andy – please communicate this request to whomever is holding Andy — if their aims are legitimate all they have to do is answer a few very simple questions. FRCP 11 inquiry.

You invited yourself in – and apparently offered to help locate Andy.
If you have any information concerning where Andy is, or who is holding him DEMAND IS MADE  that you immediately forward that information.   This situation is very serious.   In my opinion a bunch of felonies has occurred and each of us by law 18 USCA 4 is required to report the same to the authorities.    As in these gulag cases, application is made by the miscreants for Federal Health care funds the authorities have great leeway to address the problem.   In particular I call your attention to 18 USCA 371 and again urge you to at the very least inform Federal Law Enforcement of any information you have concerning Attorney Andrew Ostrowski and his abduction.

Mr. James Ostrowski:
Please allow me to introduce myself.    I am Kenneth Ditkowsky and am a friend of Attorney Andrew Ostrowski.
On or about Tuesday last I and many of Andy’s friends witnessed a social media broadcast that was reminiscent of the Soviet Gulags.   We watched till the Police made the view go blank, but we could hear the objections and protests of the victim.   The victim, Attorney Andrew Ostrowski made it very clear that he was:
1) objecting to being removed from his home
2) that he was not a physical danger to himself or to anyone else, and he knew the objects of his bounty, the extent and nature of his property, and was quite capable of conducting a business transaction.
3) the actions taken against Mr. Ostrowski were in the nature of a gulag and were a continuing retaliation.
Subsequently we learned more and different facts that as so troubling that pursuant to 18 USCA 4 we have notified Law Enforcement that we believe that a serious Felony has been committed and continues to be committed.    The 18 USCA 4 report to law enforcement has generated what appear to be threats against Andrew’s friends and a warning to stay clear.
The foregoing notwithstanding, Andy’s friends are anxious to know if he is all right and whether or not he has been subject to the usual Gulag felonies.
I assume that you are interested in protecting Andy from any adverse situation that he may have stumbled into, and are as anxious to extricate from whatever horrible situation that he has gotten himself into as we are.    Therefore I have taken the liberty of copying Law Enforcement on this e-mail.    I stumbled across you name and e-mail address.  Then I made an unwarranted assumption.   I figured that Ostrowski was not a common name and there is a good chance that you know Andy and maybe know WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON.     With threats being made to “back off” and it clearly appearing that Andy was abducted against his will – possibly with the filing of questionable documents in Court – ******.
My e-mail address is kenditkowsky@yahoo. com.    If you have any information concerning Andy I and most of the people receiving this e-mail would appreciate your sharing it with us.    In particular we would like to know the following:
1) where is Andy and how can we reach him?
2) In particular – we would want an address, e-mail address, and phone number.
3) What proceedings were promulgated to have Andy removed from the place that he was broadcasting and if documents were filed – we would want copies and such information as might be required to guard against any further violation of Andy’s rights – both State and Federal.
4) a list of all persons who have directly or indirectly been involved in the events that have caused Andy to be forcibly removed from social media transmissions,
5) such other and different information as may be relevant to either exculpate the persons listed in interrogatory 4 or further inculpate them.
I apologize if my e-mail is discourteous or antagonistic.    Before I retired I met some very not nice people and had a friend who died as a proximate cause of a similar type “gulag!”   As an accountant I assume that you also would have felt that the communication of a threat to back off was a red flag.   As an American, my friends do not just disappear and I cower in the corner afraid to ask the important questions that need to be asked.
Mr. Ostrowski if you have no relationship to Andy and/or this situation and know who is responsible please forward this e-mail to them and let me know who they are.

Just for the record – I personally would like to know how Andy’s social media activities are a danger to either himself or society.   My person observation is that his product meets his criteria, to wit:
Andy Ostrowski devotes his show “Justice Served” to improving the quality and equality of access to justice in America by shining a light on problems that have compromised our system or justice.
Our justice system is broken and the government is not operating according to the founding principle of the Consent of the Governed. It is running according to the will of the one percent – those who can pay for access.
As a lawyer, I have represented whistleblowers, police officers, public servants, women, minorities, and other common people in all walks of life.  I have worked with people struggling to save their homes in the face of the national mortgage foreclosure crisis, and those struggling to save their families through the domestic relations courts.
My life and show “Justice Served” is devoted to defending the constitutional rights of hard working American citizens.  I have seen and felt the pain and frustration of people who have been disenfranchised by our government.

I know about family concern.   I saw it in the Mary Sykes case.   The older daughter first openly stole several thousand dollars from her mother, and when caught had her mother kidnapped, isolated, removed from her prior life and her life savings (and other assets), and finally killed.
Involuntary incarceration whether motivated out of love, concern, or just venality is still wrong.  Andy is 3 times 7 and he issued a call for help.   If indeed Andy is withdrawing the call for help, he should be allowed to do so in the very same manner that he issued the aforesaid call – by orally on social media informing all the people he called for help.   Until that withdrawal of the call for help is made this is a very serious Gulag.
The fact of a threat being made is indicative of something wrong.    Loving families do not act in the manner that these people claiming to be Andy’s family have and are acting.   DEMAND IS MADE FOR AN HONEST INVESTIGATION.
NB.  If Andy is “sick” and desires treatment no one who has joined in this quest against the gulag would even consider denying Andy either treatment or care.   Our sole concern is that he is not an involuntary Gulag victim and does not wind up dead, addicted to Opioids, or worse.   We need an explanation of the POLICE, the involuntary nature of the kidnapping, and most importantly why the lies and secrecy.   ANDY WAS NOT SUICIDAL or a danger to anyone, except the criminals who were exploiting children and trafficking in the same.

His family is asking people to stop exploiting their family member this is a private family matter that they’ve had to deal with for Andy for many years and he knows that as he has gotten treatment for himself two other times in his life , many people do not know about his past and the things that have happened to him when he was young child he went through trauma in his childhood and I know he’s told many of you about it and I’m talking about not only physical Burns but there’s psychiatric scars that are left behind because of the accident that involved fire .

I have to tell you, I vote plant on this one.  First of all, she claims that the problems were caused by childhood trauma of being burned.  Then we have he has been going thru this for 30 years, yet none of us know that and Andy has never mentioned it.  Then she says this has happened twice before.

The real kick is the threat to “press charges” for inquiring about a friend.  Who does that? Someone really scared you will find out their involvement in a crime or possible crime.

This is not to mention you can’t “press charges” for someone just asking you questions.  There has to be a real threat made to them to harm them or their property.

A normal response if she really didn’t want to be bothered is just to block phone calls, messages and texts, right?  what is that, two seconds and two clicks?

Actually, no the real normal response is, I’m concerned too, I appreciate your concern, let’s gt Andy on the phone and find out how he is doing.

Does anyone know an inmate in “Humboldt County?” Got some calls today.

I’m not sure who this is, but if anyone knows who it is, email me.

I’m going to go fund an account anyway to see.

Too many false arrests and false psych holds lately.  The crooked cops seem to be outdoing themselves lately with false psych holds and false arrests.

The jail calls are coming from area code 707 which appears to be Humboldt county California.  Anyone know any missing activists from there?

From KD–Information continues to flow about corrupt Fla. nursing home that baked 8 patients to death–body temps up to 110 deg.

Take a look at the on-line edition of the WALL STREET JOURNAL  – this morning’s article has disappeared from the site!      
 
The media coverage while benign does reveal that:
 
1) there was a fully functioning hospital right across the Street, and therefore even in the middle of the hurricane any patient threatened could have been carried across the street to safety.   However, the deaths occurred after the danger from the storm was over, so whether or not government was functioning, FPL was functioning, or the Good Lord was on vacation NO ONE NEEDED TO DIE!    In fact evacuation was not only called for, but practical.    Even without the deaths this facility was so poorly managed that it ought to have been shut down.
 
2) One generator at the facility failed – why were there not sufficient generators on the premises?  Certainly the facility charged enough.    The generator used for the kitchen was operating!    
 
3) This facility had a history of bad management, criminal activity, and a relationship with LARKIN HOSPITAL.
 
4) 8 people died!    One or two could have been rationalized – but 8 is outrageous especially when it appears that in nursing homes not associated with Larkin no one died.  
 
5) nursing homes from this group of owners and their associates have been sued 20 times for wrongful death, and accused of involuntary assisted suicide many more times.
 
The State of Florida does not manage these nursing homes!    However, it is alleged by others that State regulators are routinely PAID OFF but the nursing operators so that Regulation except under certain circumstances is a sham.    
 
Governor Scott and his administration in revoking the license of this nursing home did the STATE OF FLORIDA are real service.   Growing old in Florida should not be a dangerous event!
 
I am struck by the removal of this article from the prominent position on the WAll Street journal’s on line edition.    I wonder if the WALL STREET JOURNAL and other members of the media are concerned about the Gulag reported by journalist Janet Phelan and others, to wit:
 
 
Declaring opponents of corrupt insane or mentally ill is not a new idea – the Soviets used it for years!

Florida Suspends License of Nursing Home Tied to Eight Deaths

The move comes after the facility sued the state over two previous orders that effectively shut it down

Updated Sept. 20, 2017 8:10 p.m. ET

A Florida health-care regulator Wednesday suspended the license of a nursing home tied to the deaths of eight patients after Hurricane Irma knocked out its air conditioning, while also alleging documentation errors in patient reports.

The latest order comes a day after the Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills filed a lawsuit against the state to block two previous orders, both of which effectively shut down the home, claiming the orders weren’t justified. U nder direction from Gov. Rick Scott, the state has taken several steps to stop operations at the Hollywood, Fla., facility following the deaths last week.

The nursing home’s residents “did not receive timely medical care because the trained medical professionals at the facility overwhelmingly delayed calling 911,” Florida’s Agency for Health Care Administration said, citing initial findings from an ongoing investigation.

“These failures resulted in the deaths of at least eight” residents in the nursing home, the latest order said. One patient died with a temperature of 109.9 degrees, the state said.

Nursing home staff “continuously monitored” patients, and multiple medical professionals attended patients in the hours leading up to the emergency evacuation, Kirsten Ullman, the nursing home’s co-counsel, said in a statement. The state’s allegations “simply do not describe the conditions observed by these multiple caregivers,” she said. Prior to the evacuation, two residents who died had “elevated temperatures,” she said, but not in a “critical range.”

The state health agency also alleged in the new order that nursing home staff made errors while recording key details regarding patients’ health and vital signs. In one case, a patient was allegedly recorded as resting in bed with “respirations even and unlabored” after the resident had died .      Comment:   dead people have no observable trouble – they just lie there not bothering anyone.  It is respectfully suggested that the miscreants record keeping is about as reliable as any visual observations or a person who has no sight, no hearing and is thirty or forthy miles for the situs of the events being monitored.

In another example, the state claimed that the nursing home recorded a 78-year-old patient’s temperature as 101.6 degrees Fahrenheit minutes after the nearby hospital, where the patient had already been taken, recorded 108.3 degrees. That patient also died.

The health agency’s order called this “an apparent ‘late entry,’” which it claimed was a broader problem with patient reports. Late entries occur when documentation isn’t done immediately, such as at the end of a shift, and they are labeled as such, Ms. Ullman said. The nursing-home evacuation occurred before the end of a shift and some documentation hadn’t been done, she said.

In the nursing home’s lawsuit, which was filed in Leon County, Fla., late Tuesday, the facility alleged two earlier orders issued by the state health regulator were “completely devoid of any factual allegations.” The nursing home is seeking an injunction to stop the state from enforcing the orders.

Those two orders from the state health agency—one terminating the home from the Medicaid program and another blocking new admissions—don’t cite evidence that the patients’ deaths were related to the building’s climate, the nursing home said.

The nursing home’s complaint also argued that the facility followed an emergency plan that was approved by two state health agencies. Personnel there called 911 when a patient first exhibited symptoms that required a higher level of care, which first happened in the early morning hours on Sept. 13, days after the storm hit, the nursing home said.

The home also claimed that staff were “continuously told to keep residents in place and that help was on the way,” according to the complaint.

Broward County’s chief medical examiner, Craig Mallak, hasn’t released the cause of death for any patients from the nursing home, citing the continuing criminal investigation into what happened there.

Witnesses, including first responders and visitors, have described oppressive heat in the facility, which was relying on spot coolers and fans to keep patients cool.

The governor’s office Tuesday released records detailing calls between state officials, including those in his office, and nursing home officials in the days after the storm. The records show the nursing home repeatedly contacted state emergency numbers—including a personal cell number for the governor—in the days before the facility was evacuated.

For instance, on Sept. 11, a day after the power to the air conditioning was knocked out, Natasha Anderson, administrator of Larkin Community Hospital Behavioral Health Services, a psychiatric facility in the same building as the nursing home, called to report the broken air conditioning.

“We did call local companies as well to see if there’s any more chillers available and nobody has any available,” Ms. Anderson said, according to a transcript released by the governor. “And it’s like 80 degrees in the building right now with elderly and psychiatric patients.”

State officials who returned calls to officials from the nursing home and neighboring psychiatric facility, were told the air conditioning was out, but spot coolers and fans were in place, the records show. The state says administrators from the home never said patients’ safety was in jeopardy.

From FB==How bad do nursing homes have to be before anyone notices? Patients with body temps of 107 to 108 degrees, right before they die

http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/local/Hollywood-Nursing-Home-Victims-Body-Temperatures-Approached-110-Degrees-446250883.html?_osource=SocialFlowFB_MIBrand

I guess the media can’t cover this one up and ignore it and say abuse of the elderly is a private matter not to be published.

What I want to know is how many of these victims were forced to leave their homes, how many were on feeding tubes and restraints.  How many had relatives who would take them in and care for them.

Those are the real questions.

Hollywood Nursing Home Victims’ Body Temperatures Approached 110 Degrees: Officials

Armed with new evidence – plus recorded body temperatures of other victims reaching 108.3 and 107 degrees – the Agency for Healthcare Administration Wednesday issued an emergency suspension of the facility’s license

By the time a 70-year-old woman was evacuated from Florida’s Rehabilitation Center at Hollywood Hills at 6:42 a.m. last Wednesday, she was in cardiac arrest and her body was blazing hot, according to officials.

She died seven minutes later with a post-mortem temperature of 109.9, according to the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration, which alleges she and others were evacuated from the facility “too far gone and far too late to be saved.”

Another woman, 71 years old, was taken to the adjacent Memorial Regional Hospital at 7:03 that morning without a pulse – her body temperature just before she died at 7:54 a.m.: 108.5 degrees.

Armed with that new evidence — plus recorded body temperatures of other victims reaching 108.3 and 107 degrees — AHCA Wednesday issued an emergency suspension of the facility’s license, effectively putting it out of business pending any legal challenges.

Body Temperatures of Nursing Home Patients Over 107

[MI] Body Temperatures of Nursing Home Patients Over 107

New documents reveal that the body temperatures of the patients who died at a Hollywood nursing home were at dangerous levels.

(Published Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017)

AHCA Secretary Justin Senior called what happened in Hollywood Hills “gross medical and criminal recklessness.”

“As more information has come to light on this egregious situation, this facility absolutely cannot continue to have access to patients,” Senior said in a statement Wednesday. “This facility failed its residents multiple times throughout this horrifying ordeal. It is unfathomable that a medical professional would not know to call 911 immediately in an emergency situation.”

The order also claims medical records were created after the residents were evacuated to make it appear they were in better shape than they were.

The “late entries … claim(ed) safe temperatures for patients while those same patients were across the street dying in the emergency room with temperatures of over 108 degrees,” Senior said. “No amount of emergency preparedness could have prevented the gross medical and criminal recklessness that occurred at this facility. For that reason we will suspend their license and completely terminate them from the Medicaid program. We will continue to do everything in our power to protect patients in Florida – especially those who are frail and can’t take care of themselves.”

The emergency order says allowing the center to remain open would create “an immediate serious danger to the public health, safety or welfare.”

The center had already been placed under a moratorium preventing it from receiving any new residents and a suspension blocking it from getting Medicaid reimbursements.

But those actions were superseded Wednesday by the emergency suspension order, according to AHCA.

The center has declined to comment on the events this week, citing the ongoing criminal investigation into the deaths.

The suspension order came as the home’s owners were seeking a court hearing to allow it to reopen. In a complaint filed Tuesday in Leon County Circuit Court, the home challenged the state’s moratorium and Medicaid suspension, saying it was based on “innuendo, implied speculation and conjecture.”

There was no proof any of the residents died as a result of the high temperatures, they claimed at the time, suggesting residents may have died due to the “trauma” of being evacuated.

Among the allegedly doctored medical records: A 78-year-old resident was recorded as having a 101.6-degree temperature at 4:42 on the morning of the evacuation, but 10 minutes earlier she arrived in the Memorial Regional emergency room in cardiac arrest with a temperature of 108.3, the suspension order claims. She died at 5 a.m.

Another resident, an 84 year old with cardiac disease and dementia, was recorded as being resting in bed with even, unlabored respiration on September 14 — long after he had already died, the order stated.

From FB: Icelanders have found the secret to longest life span–hot tubs, geothermal energy, and being friends with your neighbors

http://thebodywatch.com/2017/06/29/icelanders-highest-life-expectancy-world/

Did you know that Icelanders have the highest life expectancy in the entire world?

They also have 80% fewer incidents of heart disease as compared to the US over the last 25 years.

Coincidence? We think not… How do they do it? What’s the “Icelandic secret”?

When it comes to socializing, England has its pubs. Italy has its piazzas. And Iceland has its pools.

On a snowy February afternoon, the outdoor West End pool in the capital city of Reykjavik was busy. Steam rose off the hot tubs, heated by Iceland’s vast geothermal network.

Laughter and chatting filled the air. This is Iceland’s meeting place. And in a country with minimal daylight in the long, gray winter, these pools might be the key to Iceland’s happiness.

Iceland’s natural surroundings, though stunning, can be harsh and desolate. Snow, sleet and rain blow wildly in the wind during the winter. The island’s population of 332,000 people, mostly centered around Reykjavik, hunkers down to wait it out, usually indoors.

iceland hot pool

Tourists gather at the well-known Blue Lagoon, while locals are more likely to be found in a local neighborhood pool.

But if they’re outdoors, you’ll find them in the pools and hot tubs that dot the country; nearly every neighborhood has one. Tourists tend to gather at the well-known Blue Lagoon. If you want to find the locals, you need a neighborhood pool. And this unique culture has drawn interest from researchers at the University of Iceland, including folklorist Valdimar Hafstein.

“At this point, it is considered more or less a civil right to have one (of these pools) within walking distance of your home,” he said. “It’s become a focus point of public life, really.”

Despite the harsh climate, Iceland often finds itself among the top three of the world’s happiest countries. Hafstein and his fellow researchers believe the pools are a big reason why.

“If you think of health and wellness not just as a matter of physical health and being free from disease but also the mental and social aspects, I think the geothermal heat and communal pools have a lot to do with that,” Hafstein said. “We feel good here. We know our neighbors, because we meet them in the pools. It creates a good vibe, and you feel at home in there.”

iceland hot pool 2

In the 1950s and ’60s, Iceland switched from coal-powered heat to geothermal, harnessing the power of the island’s volcanic activity. The infrastructure created by the switch allowed the formation of communal pools, which have been breaking down social barriers ever since.

“When we meet in the pool, we chat, and that’s a space of liberty where you’re at ease to talk to others,” Hafstein said. “People from all walks of life go to the pool. So you have, mixing in the same hot tub, people living in the area, whether it’s the professor or the student, construction worker or the businessman, the billionaire or car salesman — they all meet up.”

So what you’re saying is that… If we hang out in pools all day we’ll live longer? 

Driven by curiosity, researchers dived deeper and finally found the answer. It was so unexpected and far-reaching that press coverage swept the country was as stunning. It turns out that while the Icelanders were soaking in the water, they were coincidentally soaking in this…

iceland volcano

Yup, that’s a volcano.

Researchers were dumbfounded to discover that it was their volcanoes that created an extremely nutrient-rich soil that blankets the entire nation.

You see, when they erupt, they cover the soil with a fine ash that’s loaded with minerals deep from within the Earth’s core.

So, not only are the Icelanders soaking in these nutrients but these minerals super-charge their food supply, strengthening its God-given ability to enhance health better than any man-made remedy.

Naturally, everyone wanted to know what these minerals were. And they found many of them embedded in the volcanic ash. But there were two that stood out. The first came right out of the Bible itself.

From Joanne;

And don’t forget to tell you body to stay healthy and happy as if you were 30 again. There’s no reason to age any longer.  There has been a new energy shift toward peace and love and truth and justice.  The Hippies of the 60s started it and it came to fruition in 1987.  Have you noticed an energy change from 2010 to now?  You’re not alone.

Pray every day for peace and love, truth and justice.  Send everyone and everything you know white light.

Let’s all continue down this path.

No more murders in probate, only peace and love for the elderly and disabled.

Judicial Reform Activist And Attorney Abducted By Police While Broadcasting

By Janet Phelan

Judicial reform activist and radio personality Andy Ostrowski has been taken into custody against his will and forced into a psychiatric evaluation. His abduction took place yesterday, September 19, at approximately 3 pm in Wilkes-Barre, PA, where Ostrowski resides.

Ostrowski was taken while on Facebook live and the incident was captured on video. The video is available here:

The video reveals an obviously anxious Ostrowski stating he had just seen a Wilkes-Barre police officer climbing over his fence. He says, “I am staying on Facebook live here til someone pulls me off the air.”

“Andy Ostrowski has done nothing wrong to anyone,” he says on the video.” Andy Ostrowski has done nothing but hit enter on emails and things on Facebook.” At that juncture, Ostrowski suddenly stated that two police officers had just entered his house, wearing gloves and carrying tasers In the background, one can hear the officers ordering him to stand up while he repeatedly asks for to see the warrant. One then hears the off-camera officer saying he has a warrant to take him into custody for a mental health evaluation. The camera then goes dark.

Ostrowski was reached a couple hours later at the General Hospital crisis unit. According to Ostrowski, he was not shown a valid, signed warrant for his detention. He discussed the history of the efforts in Wilkes-Barre to deprive him of his freedom, stating that he was being held as a political prisoner.

In a wide ranging conversation, he talked about his career as a civil rights attorney and how his efforts to impact racial discrimination very likely got him suspended from the practice of law, in 2010. “I was representing minority business contractors,” he stated, “and their bids, which were really good, were being systematically rejected.” The lawsuits he filed put him in direct opposition with Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge, who later became Director of the Department of Homeland Security.

Speaking of what he uncovered as a racial agenda, Ostrowski said, “We are looking at world domination by white men.”

Ostrowski previously hosted a radio show on Twigs Cafe, which discussed issues surrounding legal corruption. He recently made what he termed a “Declaration of Independence” from the United States, which he states is occupied by a foreign power. In July of this year, he filed a federal lawsuit naming the “American System of Justice” as a primary defendant.

Ostrowski had teamed up with noted civil rights attorney Don Bailey, whose battle for his law license got national press coverage. Bailey, a former Pennsylvania Congressman, was disbarred by the US Supreme Court in 2014 for making statements that judges were corrupt, among other accusations of legal corruption.  Ostrowski recalls that he was told that “They wanted me out of the way so I couldn’t help Bailey.”

From his hospital confinement today, Ostrowski appeared emotional but lucid. “They don’t have the balls to give me due process or charge me with a crime,” he asserted, “so they are going for mental health imprisonment.”

“I am never backing down on a word I have said,” he stated.

According to Ostrowski, he was detained twice previously this year for an evaluation and was told by the assigned psychiatrist that “Next time, we are putting you into a state institution.”

Ostrowski will be evaluated by the crisis team and can be held for 72 hours. At that time, if he is still considered a “threat to himself or others,” he can be detained for a month. Pennsylvania law guarantees a hearing after the 72 hour hold expires and, should he be further detained, after the 30 days.

Wilkes Barre is located in Luzerne County, the locus of the infamous “Kids for Cash” judicial scandal.

From FB: Cruel and Unusual–why are we still sentencing 12 to 14 year olds to die in prison

https://eji.org/reports/cruel-and-unusual

In the United States, dozens of 13- and 14-year-old children have been sentenced to life imprisonment with no possibility of parole after being prosecuted as adults. While the United States Supreme Court recently declared in Roper v. Simmonsthat death by execution is unconstitutional for juveniles, young children continue to be sentenced to imprisonment until death with very little scrutiny or review. A study by the Equal Justice Initiative (EJI) has documented 73 cases where children 13 and 14 years of age have been condemned to death in prison. Almost all of these kids currently lack legal representation and in most of these cases the propriety and constitutionality of their extreme sentences have never been reviewed.

Most of the sentences imposed on these children were mandatory: the court could not give any consideration to the child’s age or life history. Some of the children were charged with crimes that do not involve homicide or even injury; many were convicted for offenses where older teenagers or adults were involved and primarily responsible for the crime; nearly two-thirds are children of color.

Over 2225 juveniles (age 17 or younger) in the United States have been sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. All of these cases raise important legal, penological, and moral issues. However, EJI believes that such a harsh sentence for the youngest offenders – children who are 13 and 14 – is cruel and unusual in violation of the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution. These children should be re-sentenced to parole-eligible sentences as soon as possible. Sentences of life imprisonment with no parole also violate international law and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, which has been ratified by every country in the world except the United States and Somalia.

EJI has launched a litigation campaign to challenge death in prison sentences imposed on young children. This report is intended to illuminate this cruel and unusual punishment inflicted on children, particularly for those who have been without legal help for so long that the procedural obstacles to winning relief in court will be formidable. Increased public awareness, coupled with informed activity by advocacy groups, will be necessary to reform policies that reflect a lack of perspective and hope for young children.
