Ohio State Senate: Enact a bill to protect children with autism from abuse
June 1, 2012
Former Puerto Rican political prisoner Ricardo Jiménez was arrested with 11 others on April 4, 1980, in their attempt to achieve independence for Puerto Rico. He was given a 90-year federal sentence for seditious conspiracy and other charges relating to the act of attempting to overthrow the Government of the United States in Puerto Rico. Ricardo was finally released from prison on September 10, 1999, after President Bill Clinton extended him clemency. As of 2011, Jiménez lives in Chicago and works as an HIV/AIDS counselor for the Latino HIV/AIDS support agency, Vida/SIDA, a project of the Puerto Rican Cultural Center.
Puerto Rican political prisoner Oscar López Rivera, arrested in 1981, is serving a sentence of 70 years for seditious conspiracy, for his commitment to the independence of Puerto Rico. He was not accused or convicted of causing harm or taking a life. Oscar is 67 years of age and has served over 30 years behind bars, including over 12 years in torturous conditions of total isolation and sensory deprivation. In 1999, President Clinton offered to commute Oscar’s sentence on the condition that he serve an additional 10 years of clear conduct in prison before being eligible for release. Oscar did not accept the president’s offer, as the offer did not include all the Puerto Rican political prisoners at that time. Under the president’s offer, he would have been released in Sept. of 2009. The conditions of Clinton’s 1999 offer to commute Oscar’s sentence have been fulfilled.

SIGN PETITION STOP BULLYING NOW!!!
To make matters worse, Ms. Williams says that the parent of the 14 yr old who attacked her child laughed about the matter and made inappropriate comments suggesting the girl did what she was supposed to do. Video of the attack surfaced on Youtube, allegedly posted by friends of the attacker as some kind of statement but when realizing the video was being used as evidence, they removed the video. Ms. Williams was able to obtain a copy of the video and re-uploaded it herself. Black Talk Radio has also obtained a copy. Ms. Williams wants there to be serious dialogue around the issue of bully and school safety. She also believes the school, the parent and the 14 yr old who attacked her child to be held responsible for what was done to Annisia. What would you do to protect your child from bullies?
