Sign Petition To Disbar Aaron Schlossberg

Aaron Schlossberg is no professional. Not only should he be disbarred any case he touched should be reviewed.  Let’s inundate NY with petitions to disbar him.  (How to Complain About Lawyers and Judges in New York CityDisbarment)

The following is a petition to disbar Aaron Schlossberg:

I’m Ronen Kauffman, a fellow MoveOn member, and I started a petition after seeing some absolutely despicable video footage of a racist and xenophobic lawyer in New York City cursing at, threatening, and otherwise berating members of the public on multiple occasions.1

Sign the petition demanding the New York State Unified Court System investigate and disbar Aaron Schollberg for his unprofessional, unethical conduct.

Aaron Schlossberg was caught on camera multiple times making hateful, racist comments to complete strangers. His unethical and dangerous conduct makes it clear that he is not fit to be a credentialed lawyer. He must be investigated and disbarred.

Sign Ronen’s petition

Schlossberg is on camera yelling at women for speaking Spanish and says that they should be “kicked out of my country.” Another video shows him yelling at a couple on the street, “I’m a citizen here. You’re not. You’re an ugly, f***ing foreigner, so f**k you!”2

It should come as no surprise that Schlossberg donated hundreds of dollars to the Trump campaign and is now apparently one of the many bigots emboldened by the administration’s racist and xenophobic agenda.3

Sign my petition now to demand a full investigation into Schlossberg’s racist and xenophobic history and for him to be disbarred, so that he can no longer practice law.

Thanks!

–Ronen Kauffman

FFT: Could Fake News Help Us Unravel The Truth?

Food For Thought (FFT)

Today during a conversation about fake news with a friend, it occurred to me that instead of calling news we disagree with fake, we should presume all news and information are biased and embedded with lies. In the last decades, our sources of information and news ballooned, leading to disinformation and #fakenews becoming dominant forces of manipulation. We need the ability to accept any information–false or facts– then decide its veracity.

All fake stories have a basis in fact even if the only truth was the story was false. Why did some entity or someone create the #fake news? Gleaning motives for false news may prove invaluable in understanding society and ultimately lead to the truth that some want to avoid.

Perhaps, the solution to disinformation is to embrace it by understanding its motive as well as content. Such an approach to news could lead to a literate society with insight and understanding of each other and the world.  If you understood the motive for a story,  could you unravel the truth?

Supreme Court: It’s Legal For Police Officers To Kill Americans When They FEEL Threatened

Some days it’s not worth getting out of bed. The news always seems terrible, and as a woman of color, I feel estranged from the greater society.

The stories I read are insane. This morning I read a story that the Supreme Court made it legal for trained cops to murder unarmed civilians if a cop feels threatened. Cops only need to utter the words without proof. Cops cannot be sued and officially have a license to murder innocent people by just uttering the phrase, ‘I felt threatened.’ Police officers are public servants trained and paid by tax dollars to protect and serve the public not themselves. Do you think the supreme court made the right decision in giving police officers the right to murder Americans at will?

Do you think self-defense can be employed to protect Americans against police violence?

How can an armed and trained cop feel threatened by a kid running away from him? How can an armed and trained cop feel threatened when they outnumber the suspect? Why are armed and trained cops mostly threatened by unarmed POC and not by armed whites?

If armed and trained cops can feel threatened by an unarmed black man, can you imagine how threatened an unarmed black man feels when he sees a cop? Can a black man who feels threatened by a white police officer murder him in self-defense? Wouldn’t that equal justice?

FFT: Pretending Ignorance

Do you know what it’s like to be me? Very lonely. I see and feel things that others don’t. I don’t think I’m crazy but rather evolved. At the balcony I gain perspective. Sometimes I wish I couldn’t see through people because I wouldn’t have to feign ignorance. How many of us are out there?

Did Michelle Cusseaux have to die?

http://www.azcentral.com/story/opinion/editorial/2014/08/18/michelle-cusseaux-mental-illness/14266383/


Normal law-abiding humans do not behave in this manner; criminals and psychopaths do. Anglo values and law look at police behavior and use of excessive force as necessary to protect the officers. In the above video, was it necessary?

 

An unarmed, single victim against multiple trained, heavily armed officers,  swinging batons, kicking your face, stomach, and groin without mercy, seemingly relentlessly: How would an autistic or schizophrenic person respond?

 

 

In the video, cops appear to be villains, bullies, and the mob – just organized minions of criminal units.

 

 

This is an  epidemic. Police violence should be declared a public health and medical Emergency. Mental illness affects about one in every four Americans. The medical community cannot afford to ignore this situation. We must pay now or pay immensely later.

 

 

If we ignore, what will the future look like as more police officers are rewarded for violence and move up the ranks, as they have already?   Will a lack of diversity be the future?

 


 

Many homeless people have mental disorders that landed them on the streets. Mental disorders are controllable and treatable but not in prison. No studies have documented the treatment benefits of prison for mental disorders as well as developmental disorders and homelessness.  We know that untreated mental illness often gets worse with addiction.  Are medical societies and patient advocates comfortable with law enforcement-driven treatment protocols for  mental illness and addiction?

 

The most disturbing thing about the video above and other videos like it is the lack of first responders.  Ambulance delays,  lack of CPR and advanced life support increase fatalities.  Why were there no ambulances  and at least 5 cruisers?  Are cops trained in CPR?  I believe they are, and the majority carry defibrillators.  However, no attempts were made to resuscitate or administer first aid.

 

Videos of police violence with often fatal injuries to “suspects,” and  absence of ambulances , and  use  of defibrillators,  ensure that patients  will not be brought back to life.  A dead patient cannot contradict blood the  stained lies of law enforcement.

 

 

Why were so many cruisers on the scene, but no ambulance?  Was there a delay?  If so, why?  Perhaps delays in medical treatment result in the death of victims of police  violence.  Or did  medicine outsource health care to law enforcement?

Petition: Prosecute Darren Wilson for the shooting and killing of Mike Brown

 

Prosecute Darren Wilson for the shooting and killing of Mike Brown

https://www.change.org/p/chris-koster-prosecute-darren-wilson-for-the-shooting-and-killing-of-mike-brown

 

On Saturday 8/9/14, 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., a suburb of St. Louis.

The shooting occurred around noon Saturday at the Canfield Green Apartment complex. Michael Brown was unarmed when he was shot six times and killed. Brown presented no threat to the officer’s or any other life, and use of deadly force was not immediately necessary to effect the suspects arrest. The officer not only took the life of a presumably innocent man, he endangered the lives of others by discharging his weapon multiple times in a highly populated area. We feel this shooting was unlawful under RSMO Chapter 563 Section 563.046

Darren Wilson stopped Michael Brown because he was jaywalking, not because Wilson believed him to be a robbery suspect. All we know about what happened next is that 18 year-old Michael Brown, who was completely unarmed, was shot and killed.

Wilson is under the protection of the Ferguson Police Department, which has chosen from the beginning of this case to opt for obscurity rather than transparency. The department did not reveal Wilson’s identity for nearly a week after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown.

Please join us in calling on Robert P. McCulloch, St.Louis County Prosecuting Attorney, Missouri Govenor Jay Nixon, Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster to investigate the murder of Mike Brown and prosecute Officer Darren Wilson for the shooting and killing of Mike Brown.

Please uphold justice.

Police Violence: Use of Tasers For Walking


“A lawsuit has been filed on behalf of the family, including the 7 month old son, of 24 year old Gregory Towns, who died after being tased 13 times in 29 minutes. Two officers repeatedly shocked this man’s body for a total of 47 seconds… while unarmed and handcuffed.”


“Police found Towns sitting down and out of breath after a short foot chase. He asked officers at least ten times to be allowed to rest before going with them, according to AJC. The cops then decided to use their weapons as a cattle prod to force the weak man to walk, instead of just letting him catch his breath.”


“While we often ask “why didn’t that cop use a taser instead of his gun?”, it is important to remember that while a person is less likely to die from a taser shock than a gun shot, they are still a weapon, and still often unnecessary and lethal.”

Using tasers to hasten the arrest process for injured citizens who have difficulty breathing has no place in American medicine. I doubt the manufacturer of tasers would make such recommendations to any law enforcement official. There are no medical indications for tasers.

Someone who is having difficulty breathing needs an ambulance. Any fool knows that.

This is wrongful death due to the off-label use of tasers. The police did not act in accordance with standard practice or protocols for tasers.

Personnel should consider that exposure to the ECW [Taser]  for longer than 15 seconds (whether due to multiple applications or continuous cycling) may increase the risk of death or serious injury.”  (3)  

Police are not allowed to make medical decisions, yet they are (with uniformly poor outcomes) increasing fatalities and disability cases.

Systemic violence within law enforcement serves to compound the burgeoning unlawful, unethical, and inhumane actions that lead to physical and mental disorders. When a disorder is exploited by law enforcement for profit or abuse, it can only be described as an act of terrorism.

A public health emergency exists for people with depression, anxiety, PTSD, and Asperger syndrome. People with mental and developmental disorders may not understand commands screamed at them by an irate officer pointing a gun, and the wrong reaction could be fatal.

The medical community cannot stand by and watch patients slaughtered, knowing that they are at very high risk for police violence and its associated morbidity and mortality.

Gregory Town tasered to death
