My little 3 year son Paul Wray as she walk in he said she is mean and told her to go away. Mommy let's go home ,momma I'm scared!!!!!!!!!! A three year old.... So I packed up our stuff and tried to leave the hospital with Pauly.. I was going to take Pauly to North Florida or Dr Davis In Virginia,in which is a lot better it's not run by a bunch of college kids. The security guard's stop me in the elevator .. They took Pauly into another room ,, they said I couldn't go in there ,, But I pushed my way in there. ,I was trying hold him and gave him a blue robe type blanket, really soft,There where three nurse where hurting my son they was pokeing the needle around in his small arm making him scream and cry really loud.. crying moma help . I told them you are hurting my son and causing physical harm and abuse to my son, and you best stop or you will either be without a job or a file a warrant on you and have you charged. I stepped few steps back and started video recording of how they was hurting my son, So I would have my legal proof. I recorded some of the stuff 2. Cops came 5 of them, took me back to my room for 45 mins,,,, CPS Tamica Shaw never let me see no paper work ,no warrant or anything signed by a judge! So its Fed kidnaping because we were not legal residents of Florida .So They took me to jail..Before I was leaving I was begging Office Ricky Morgan let me give leave his blue teddy bear and say good bye.. When we where in the cop car I said please go give the blue teddy bear to him. He has never been left alone without his mommy and he is really scared . I also told him that the security guards hurt me and dislocated my shoulder He refused to take to the er to get a xray . But no!. I was placed straight into witness protection where judges,cops go if they where arrestted.
Officer Bass in the jailhouse was very protected of me, she help give me a shower, comb my hair out and said this is unreal . She called the nurse right way and a doctor came and said her shoulder is is dislocated I can see its out of place just by looking at it. I was in the jail for another 8 hours with my shoulder being out of place, it was painful. But my mind couldn't get off of my son Pauly and my other 4 children. I asked if someone could see Pauly in the hospital. The next Morning two doctors came in and said she needs to be in the ER and not Jail. But the Judge wanted to see me first so she could get me out there. So I was seen. I walked from the jail to almost to the hospital with my shoulder still dislocated. Along the way there was an old marine guy sitting on a park bench .He said come here u look like your about to past out and could use a drink of water. I was holding my shoulder and started to cry. The old marine said ur shoulder is dislocated I can help but it will fell like you got hit by a semi truck. I said ok. he laid me on the ground said put this rag in your mouth and bite it is hard as you can. AS so I did. It took about one min to be put back in place. I was screaming, it was one of my worst pains that I have had in a very long time. He put in back in place for. I was about 2 miles from the hospital. he said, here is some money get on this bus and get to the hospital I said sir I can't take your money. He said its a order and get on that bus !Got 2 jail spend the night got out the next day.

His report that I was a stable mother and the children were safe to be with me he had no concerns. The Judge Jennifer Johnson didn't let him testify on my behalf.But Dr Davis the children peds for over 7 years did. He said I know Joy personally for seven years Joy and John Wray are good family. He also said that there are no concerns the kids never had any marks no signs of abuse,no sign of mental illness, I always took the to the doctors visit,referrals and never missed one. ...

Part one how I am going to reform CPS with the help of few friends

1. Appoint a special prosecutor to investigate corruption in the CPS system. This prosecutor should have the power to subpoena documents and witnesses and bring court cases against corrupt "child protection" agents or agencies.

2. Remove all immunity for CPS agents who behave unethically or illegally.

3. Repeal Hillary Clinton's Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997, which created financial incentives for CPS to remove children and adopt them out. You can read more about ASFA here.

4. Make it a federal crime to falsely accuse anyone of child abuse to a state agency.

5. Allow those falsely accused of child abuse or neglect by a state agency or private citizen to recover punitive damages of at least $100,000 per false charge, in addition to any other compensatory damages are ordered by the court.

6. Require a warrant based on probable cause in order to remove children or enter a home unless the agents actually witness abuse in progress (the 4th Amendment requires a warrant for governmental searches or seizures.)

7. Require CPS caseworkers to wear dash and body cameras which are recording at all times.

8. Reform “medical neglect” laws to define “medical neglect” as neglect of life-saving medical care only -- not refusal to give children dangerous psychotropic drugs or other “psychological treatment.”

9. Pass laws which affirmatively declare that parental refusal to medicate children with psychiatric drugs cannot be construed as abuse or neglect in any circumstances -- and affirmatively prohibit CPS from investigating or contacting a family based on a complaint related to failure to medicate a child with psychotropic drugs.

10. Reform the “anonymous reporting” system. The 6th Amendment to the Constitution provides that criminal defendants must be allowed to confront the witnesses against them. Require reporters to provide their name and phone number to CPS -- and require CPS to reveal the name and phone number of reporters to the parents within 14 business days -- unless they can prove to a court of law that the name should not be revealed. Make it a criminal offense for educational, medical, or legal professionals to lie about their name or phone number to CPS.

11. Require anyone who reports abuse and/or neglect to CPS either over the phone or in person to swear under penalty of perjury that their accusations are true.

12. Require all medical facilities, including mental health facilities, to provide all medical records to parents within 7 business days.

13. Prohibit CPS agents from interviewing children without parental consent, and require a search warrant to examine or search children. https://www.facebook.com/PartnershipforStrongFamilies/

GIGLIO, Italy My Cousin Gian Benevento still missing from the cruise ship crash.

Please help I have a cousin Gian Benevento from Italy Missing that was on the cruise ship he was last seen holding onto a lifeboat 36 hours ago. This was the last picture taken of him seven hours before the Cruise Ship






Noi che preghiamo dalla tolleranza del signore che sarete cassaforte e suono trovati. Ma il tempo sta andando da così velocemente. Siamo nel timore che potete non essere trovati mai.  :(



GIGLIO, Italy — Three people were found alive on Sunday as rescuer workers continued to search a partly submerged Italian cruise ship resting just off this small island near the Tuscan coast.



Cruise Ship Runs Aground in Italy



Early Sunday, an Italian fire brigade found a honeymooning couple from Korea alive inside a cabin of the Costa Concordia, which was resting on its side with a gash just below the waterline and a rock stuck in the hull. A brigade spokesman, Luca Cari, said the couple had been taken to a local hospital.

Later, an Italian man, who was identified in media reports as a crew member, was taken from the ship by helicopter. The man was thought to have a broken leg.

At least three people were killed when the Costa Concordia, carrying 4,200 passengers and crew on a weeklong Mediterranean cruise, slammed into an undetermined object near the island Friday night as passengers for the late seating had just started dinner, tucking into appetizers of grilled mushrooms and scallops.

On Sunday, media reports described rescue workers in boats circling the big ship, tapping on the hull, and listening for a response. Divers also combed the ship’s underwater cabins for those still missing, up to 41 people.

Shaken survivors spoke of a mad crush to flee a sinking cruise ship off the Tuscan coast, raising questions about the crew’s preparedness, Italian authorities arrested the ship’s captain amid concerns that the megaship had steered dangerously off course.

Anxious survivors, many comparing the experience to the movie “Titanic,” recounted a chaotic and terrifying scene in which some crawled through hallways to escape down perilous ladders to lifeboats, while others leapt overboard into the wintry Tyrrhenian Sea.

“In a moment, everything was up in the air,” said Alessandra Grasso, 24, a passenger from Sicily. “People, chairs, glasses, food.”

Ulrike Schweda, 63, from Germany, was caught in a crowd of people pushing toward a lifeboat, and slipped on the deck. “The most terrible thing was seeing children trying to get down this ladder they had put on the side of the boat,” she said.

Two French citizens and a Peruvian crew member were reported dead, according to a hospital official in Grosseto, Tuscany.

Divers searched until nightfall Saturday for the missing, perilously probing the 2,000 cabins for survivors while the Leviathan ship lay on its side in the water, a boulder poking through a 160-foot gash in its hull. The Italian Coast Guard said 41 people were still unaccounted for.

The coast guard is also monitoring the environmental impact of the accident, but as of Sunday morning, no oil had seeped into the ocean from the ship. “We are optimistic and hope that the ship is not going to slide further down,” Cmdr. Cosimo Nicastro, a spokesman for the coast guard, told reporters. “But the weather conditions are slowly worsening, and that is a cause of concern.”

There were conflicting reports about whether the ship was off course in reef-filled waters just miles from the shore or whether an electrical failure had caused the crew to lose control. Passengers spoke of faulty evacuation procedures and unprepared staff who told them nothing was wrong — until the ship began tipping over.

After questioning him for several hours, the Italian police detained the ship’s captain, Francesco Schettino, and the first officer, for questioning on charges of manslaughter, failure to offer assistance and abandonment of ship, the police said.

Before his detention, Captain Schettino told Italian television that the ship had hit a reef that was not on its navigation charts.

Gianni Onorato, the president of the Costa cruise company, a subsidiary of Carnival Cruise lines, said the ship had been sailing its “regularly scheduled itinerary” from Civitavecchia to Savona, Italy, when it struck “a submerged rock.”

He said Captain Schettino “immediately understood the severity of the situation” and “performed a maneuver intended to protect both guests and crew.”

The Italian coast guard said the captain had tried to turn the ship toward port in Giglio to make an evacuation easier, but it began to tip over as it reached the port.




Local media reports said the ship had passed between the Tuscan coast and Giglio, a popular tourist destination 18 miles offshore, rather than in the open sea on the far side of the island. The newspaper Corriere della Sera cited local fishermen who said it was uncommon for a ship the size of the Costa Concordia to take that route.


However, Cristiano de Musso, a cruise company spokesman, said the ship had not deviated from the course it follows “52 times a year.”

Passengers described scenes of chaos as they tried to evacuate. Ms. Grasso said waiters instructed diners to remain seated even as the ship began listing. The captain initially told passengers that the ship had an electrical problem, according to media reports.

Once she boarded a lifeboat, Ms. Grasso said, the helmsman appeared ill equipped to bring the scores of travelers on his vessel to safety: he kept banging into the ship, unable to steer the lifeboat to the shore, until a passenger shoved him aside and took the lead.

“No crew member was trained for an evacuation,” she said.

A crew member, Fabio Costa, told BBC News that he had been working when he heard a crash. “We had no idea how serious it was until we got out and we looked through the window,” he said. “We saw the water coming closer and closer.”

Of the struggle to reach the lifeboats, as passengers pushed one another and stumbled on stairs amid falling objects, Mr. Costa said, “People panicking and pushing each other didn’t help at all.”

Mr. Onorato, the cruise company president, said only that the captain “initiated security procedures to prepare for an eventual ship evacuation.” He did not respond to further questions on the matter.

The cruise company said that the passengers included about 1,000 Italians, 500 Germans and 160 French, and the crew numbered about 1,000. The United States State Department estimated that 126 Americans had been onboard. It was not known whether any were among the missing.

Giancarlo Sammatrice, 22, a cook from Vittoria, Sicily, was on vacation with his girlfriend. “I have always been scared of those boats, but my girlfriend kept on saying that it was romantic, and I gave in,” he said. “There were not enough lifeboats. The pilots were not sailors but waiters who had no idea how to maneuver and kept on having us turning in circles.”

“It was the first and certainly the last cruise of my life,” he said.

True Movie American Disaster about Two Families and there children that want to end MTR and they will stop at nothing. The woman staring Marie Hicks is native american from VA and has lived here her whole life. The other woman is from Florida Joy Wray she has, Just moved up here seven months ago learns the truth . The Facts about Mountaintop Removal. She Desperate plea's by writing a letter to President Obama asking for him to sign the bill of clean water act and to sign a grant to put three wind energy/turbine on her land. From a medium size small wind turbine – The Whisper 500 can produce enough energy to power an entire home. Formerly the Whisper 175, the Whisper 500 was completely redesigned in 2004 to work in harsh high wind environments.
Coal washing often results in thousands of gallons of contaminated water that looks like black sludge and contains toxic chemicals and heavy metals. The sludge, or slurry, is often contained behind earthen dams in huge sludge ponds. One of these ponds broke on February 26th, 1972 above the community of Buffalo Creek in southern West Virginia. Pittston Coal Company had been warned that the dam was dangerous, but they did nothing. Heavy rain caused the pond to fill up and it breached the dam, sending a wall of black water into the valley below. Over 132 million gallons of black wastewater raged through the valley. 1,250 people were killed, 1100 injured and 4000 were left homeless. Over 1000 cars and trucks were destroyed and the disaster did 50 million dollars in damage. The coal company called it an “act of God”.
The clear green patch in the lower left is the football field. The tall cylindrical white object is the coal silo, less than 200 feet from the school. The zigzag is the earthen dam holding the sludge lake (2.8 billion gallons), directly above the school.
Traditional mining communities disappear as jobs diminish and residents are driven away by dust, blasting and increased flooding and dangers from overloaded coal trucks careening down small, windy mountain roads. Mining companies buy many of the homes and tear them down. Dynamite is cheaper than people, so mountaintop removal mining does not create many new jobs.
Mountaintop removal generates huge amounts of waste. While the solid waste becomes valley fills, liquid waste is stored in massive, dangerous coal slurry impoundments, often built in the headwaters of a watershed. The slurry is a witch’s brew of water used to wash the coal for market, carcinogenic chemicals used in the washing process and coal fines (small particles) laden with all the compounds found in coal, including toxic heavy metals such as arsenic and mercury. Frequent blackwater spills from these impoundments choke the life out of streams. One “spill” of 306 million gallons that sent sludge up to fifteen feet thick into resident’s yards and fouled 75 miles of waterways, has been called the southeast’s worst environmental disaster.
Of course, it’s not only the people who suffer. The U.S contiguous forests destroys key nesting habitat for neo-tropical migrant bird populations, and thereby decreases the migratory bird populations throughout the northeast U.S
