Purple Purse
« on: September 17, 2014, 08:08:32 am »

Kerry Washington is fast becoming one of my most admired persons because she actually stands for something.
Recently, Ms. Washington was a guest on MSNBC's  'The Reid Report'  hosted by Joy Reid as a ambassador for Purple Purse, a project of The Allstate Foundation, to remind Americans of the many kinds of domestic abuse.

For example, economic abuse is the most common of all because the abuser deprives the victim of the ability to be financially independent.  The abuser has financial security and the victim doesn't.

Domestic abuse is a very, very, very serious issue and nothing to be ashamed of.

Domestic abuse affects EVERYONE in any kind of relationship: families, friends and lovers alike.

Twenty years ago today, the Violence Against Women Act was signed into law. It remains my proudest legislative achievement -- but it didn't happen because of me.

It happened because, at a time when kicking a woman in the stomach or pushing her down the stairs was not taken seriously as a crime -- and at a time when domestic violence against women was considered a "family affair" -- something remarkable happened.

Incredibly brave and courageous women began speaking up.

Women like Marla, a model whose face was slashed by two men because she'd refused her landlord's entrees, and who was questioned for 20 minutes during the trial about why she was wearing a miniskirt. As if she had asked for or welcomed this repugnant act of violence. Marla spoke out.

Women like Christine, who was raped in a dorm room by a friend's boyfriend. Christine said she hadn't even known she'd been raped, because she'd known the man. But Christine added her voice.

There were so many more. Women who had their arms broken with hammers and heads beaten with pipes, who were among the 21,000 women who were assaulted, raped, and murdered in a single week in America at the time.

All of these women are victims. But they're also survivors.

And because they spoke up, the conversation changed and a national consensus formed to do something to protect them. Their stories -- experiences shared by millions more women -- put this issue front and center before the American people. The country was forced to see the rawest form of violence and acknowledge the culture that hid it. And they began to demand change as a result. Local coalitions of shelters and rape centers led the way. National women's groups and civil rights organizations got on board. And a bipartisan group in Congress got the bill to President Clinton's desk.

That's how we got this law enacted.

And with each reauthorization, we added more protections. In 2000, we included a definition of dating violence. In 2005, we invested in health providers to screen patients for domestic violence and associated long-term psychological and physical health. And in 2013, we made VAWA services available to LGBT Americans and restored authority for tribes to prosecute non-Indian offenders. As a result, over the years, we've seen domestic violence rates drop significantly, fundamental reforms of state laws, and higher rates of convictions for special-victims units.

But we know our work here is never done. This past week, I announced that we'll bring together legal experts, scholars, and advocates to convene a White House Summit on Civil Rights and Equal Protection for Women because we know bias against victims of rape and sexual assault still exist in our criminal justice system -- and we must make clear every victim has a basic civil right to equal protection under the law.

And if you need information and resources about how to respond and prevent sexual assault in our schools and on our college campuses, you can visit NotAlone.gov.

And if, God forbid, you're experiencing this sort of violence or know someone who is, you can get help. You can do it right now. There is a network of passionate and dedicated folks all across the country who are ready to listen. It's anonymous, and it's safe. In fact, VAWA created the National Domestic Violence Hotline, which you can visit here,* or dial 1-800-799-SAFE (7233) right now for help and advice.

Twenty years after the Violence Against Women Act was enacted, I remain hopeful as ever that the decency of the American people will keep us moving forward.

They understand that the true character of our country is measured when violence against women is no longer accepted as society's secret, and where we all understand that even one case is too many.

Thank you,

Vice President Joe Biden

Fuller Sh!t

You can always tell when there's a serious scandal underway in sports & politics.
Take for example, the NFL commissioner unsuccessfully trying to cover up a horrible domestic violence case with one of their athletes which set off a litany of other related cases sparking a national conversation about domestic abuse.

Not too long ago, a U.S. District Judge mark fuller in Birmingham, Alabama, was arrested on domestic violence charges for beating his wife.   

If Americans are calling for the resignation of the NFL commissioner and firing if not outright arresting athletes for their misdeeds then we must do so for all Americans.  No one is exempt from the American rule of law, not even a judge.  This judge has achieved tenor so if he is to be removed it will require an act of Congress...

--- but wait! 

A republican conservative controlled congress has decided to take a vacation until November 12th!!!   
 :o
Why, that's a week AFTER election day! 
Not just any election but the midterm elections! 

republicans go on vacation while your President and Vice President works tirelessly for the American people.

Does anyone else detect another scandal coming?
 
Obviously, the 'conservative bogeyman' (according to BmoreAkuma) is attempting to protect this Alabama judge because if Congress is not in session, then they cannot take a vote to impeach this wife beater.    Slick, huh?
Whatever the 'conservative bogeyman' is protecting this Alabama wife beater from it must be something very important.

The only thing the 'conservative bogeyman' is concerned about is going to war in the Middle East.  Oh, and criticizing the President.   ...and getting re-elected. 
Why? 
Because the war overseas takes the focus off serious issues that concern Americans most in the Homeland*.


What we do for one, we must do for all.   Do you not agree?









* a 'conservative bogeyman' term

Heh heh heh... The plot thickens as we discover more crap about this bush-appointed Alabama judge. 
Check it out:

Federal judge faces possible impeachment
by Timothy M. Phelps


MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Federal District Judge mark e. fuller was controversial even before he was arrested on allegations of beating his wife last year.

The Alabama judge was criticized for sitting on cases brought by the government even as his aviation company was getting hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayer-funded business. Appointed by a Republican, he was denounced for putting a former Democratic governor in manacles after a corruption conviction.

He was the talk of the courthouse for having an extramarital affair with his courtroom assistant, and for his messy public divorce.

fuller, 56, is now battling bipartisan calls to resign over a fight he had seven months ago with the same former courtroom assistant, whom he'd married. The argument started after she accused fuller of cheating on her with his law clerk.

Adding to fuller's problems was that a few weeks after he was arrested, video was released of NFL star running back Ray Rice knocking his fiancee unconscious, putting a national spotlight on spousal abuse. The Baltimore Ravens dropped Rice.

"If an NFL player can lose his job because of domestic violence, then a federal judge should definitely not be allowed to keep his lifetime appointment to the federal bench," said Rep. Terri A. Sewell, D-Ala.

Sewell and both of Alabama's Republican senators, along with other members of the state's congressional delegation, have called on fuller to step down.

fuller's judicial career now rests largely with a five-judge review panel that has investigated his behavior and is expected to release its findings this month. A House of Representatives committee is gearing up for possible impeachment hearings against fuller, who was appointed to the federal bench by President bush in 2002.

Retired Alabama federal Judge U.W. Clemon, who as chief judge of the U.S. District Court in Birmingham dealt with similar ethical issues, said that fuller's constitutional appointment may not be enough to save his job.

When a judge's behavior results in him "being thrown in jail like a common criminal, that's not within the conduct that is condoned by the Constitution," Clemon said.

Kelli fuller, the former court assistant who was divorced from fuller after the incident, has not spoken in public about what happened at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Atlanta last August. But her version is amply represented in police files.

"He's beating on me! Please help me," Kelli fuller pleaded to a police dispatcher, who called for an ambulance and could be heard telling a co-worker, "I can hear him hitting her now."

The policeman who entered the hotel room found her with "visible lacerations to her mouth and forehead" and said the room smelled of alcohol.

"Mrs. fuller stated when she confronted him about their issues, he pulled her hair and threw her to the ground and kicked her," the police report said. "Mrs. fuller also stated she was dragged around the room and Mr. fuller hit her in the mouth several times with his hands."

Judge fuller was taken to jail, where he spent the night on a charge of misdemeanor battery. But he avoided a criminal record by agreeing to a pretrial diversion program, including a drug and alcohol evaluation and 24 sessions of domestic violence counseling.

Nebraska federal court Judge Richard Kopf, who writes a blog about judicial issues, called it "a sweet deal."

fuller, who is no longer hearing cases pending the resolution of the committee's review, hasn't commented on the specifics of the incident, but he issued a brief statement of regret. He called the incident "very embarrassing" and said he would be "working to resolve these issues" with his family.

In a recent interview, fuller's lawyer and longtime friend Barry Ragsdale spoke at length about the incident for the first time.

Ragsdale said Kelli fuller had become upset over an "imagined" affair she believed her husband of two years was having with a law clerk.

Ragsdale said Fuller acted in self-defense. He said when fuller refused to fire the law clerk, his wife "throws a glass at him and rushes at him while he is lying in bed" in his underwear watching television.

"He reaches up, defending himself, and grabs her by the hair and the shoulder," Ragsdale said. "Standing up, he throws her on the bed. She rolls off onto the floor and got a bloody lip. He never intended to hurt her."

In his Birmingham office, Ragsdale showed a notebook with photos showing Kelli Fuller's injuries, including several small cuts and bruises and a fat lower lip. He said they were taken less than an hour after the incident.

She declined to go to a hospital, according to the police report. Ragsdale said fuller "never hit, punched, slapped or kicked his wife."

The five-judge committee heard three days of testimony last month in a closed evidentiary hearing that Ragsdale said was "essentially a trial."

Ragsdale says the committee is considering several allegations, including whether fuller abused his wife and, if so, whether it was part of a pattern of abuse; whether he had an affair with his clerk; and whether the earlier extramarital relationship with Kelli fuller violated court rules or judicial ethics.

Ragsdale says there is no rule at the District Court in Montgomery prohibiting relationships with employees.

Finally, Ragsdale said, the judges are looking at questions of spousal abuse and alcohol and prescription drug abuse raised in fuller's 2012 divorce from his first wife, Lisa.

Because of his lifetime appointment, the committee cannot force him off the bench, but it can reprimand him and ask him to resign or grant him early retirement. It can also recommend impeachment.

Kopf, the conservative judge and blogger, wrote that he opposed impeachment because "fuller's despicable conduct was ... private, and it was unconnected to the performance of his judicial duties."

G. Douglas Jones, a former U.S. attorney in Birmingham, said fuller should step down given the damage done to his reputation and credibility.

"No one in a criminal or civil case would feel they would get a fair shake," Jones said.

Here's yet another example of why Americans needs to reform our criminal justice system after the general election:


Doesn't this guy look like rush limburger?

An Arkansas judge has resigned after a state commission accused him of ordering male defendants to be spanked, engage in sex acts and bend over for thousands of photographs to fulfill their “community service,” a senior state official said on Tuesday.

The resignation of the district court judge, O. Joseph Boeckmann Jr., was effective immediately after it was sent to the State Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission on Monday, said David J. Sachar, the commission’s executive director.


“If a criminal charge is brought, he will be fighting that vehemently,” Someone  said of the former judge.

The commission was continuing its investigation and it had interviewed hundreds of witnesses since August 2015, looking at the judge’s docket sheets, Mr. Sachar said.

“We have identified three dozen people by name that we have contacted or know it happened,” he said, referring to people who said they had experienced inappropriate sex acts, paddling or photography or payments by the judge. “We suspect there are more.”

The State Supreme Court ordered the judge to stop hearing cases in late 2015 as the investigation unfolded,  but he was still drawing a salary and benefits. His resignation on Monday, which was sent to Mr. Sachar and to Gov. Asa Hutchinson, means he is permanently disqualified from being a judge and public servant.

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS THUG?
by Mark Moore

Tuesday April 17, 2018


Michael Avenatti, the lawyer for Stormy Daniels, unveiled a sketch of “the thug” the adult entertainment star says threatened her to keep quiet about a sexual affair she alleges with the acting-president.

The drawing released on ABC’s “The View” Tuesday shows a man with a light beard, hair pushed back from his face and wearing a hoodie.

The man was described as being between 5-feet-9 and 6-feet tall and “lean but fit.”

Mr. Avenatti urged viewers to send in their tips to idthethug@gmail.com because he and Ms. Daniels are offering a $100,000 reward to whoever identifies him.

Ms. Daniels and Mr. Avenatti have been in a legal battle with the acting-president’s personal lawyer, michael cohen, over a nondisclosure agreement she signed before the 2016 election and for which she received a $130,000 payment from cohen.

They contend the agreement isn’t valid because emperor puppetine never signed the legal papers.

The FBI raided cohen’s office, home and hotel room last week seeking information and documents about that payment.

"Looks Like Another Creepy Politician Getting Away W/Sh!t!"
Eric Schneiderman Resigns as New York Attorney General Amid Assault Claims by 4 Women
by DANNY HAKIM and VIVIAN WANG

Monday... Monday... MAY 7, 2018


"Ummm-m-m-m... Ahhh-h-h... ~~~"


Eric T. Schneiderman, 63, the New York State attorney general who rose to prominence, abruptly resigned on Monday night hours after The New Yorker reported that four women had accused him of physically assaulting them.

“It’s been my great honor and privilege to serve as attorney general for the people of the State of New York,” Mr. Schneiderman said in a statement. “In the last several hours, serious allegations, which I strongly contest, have been made against me.

“While these allegations are unrelated to my professional conduct or the operations of the office, they will effectively prevent me from leading the office’s work at this critical time. I therefore resign my office, effective at the close of business on May 8, 2018.”

Michelle Manning Barish and Tanya Selvaratnam, said they had been choked and hit repeatedly by Mr. Schneiderman. Both said they had sought medical treatment. Another woman, a lawyer, said she was slapped violently across the face. A fourth woman said she had similar experiences.

All the women in the article, who had been romantically involved with Mr. Schneiderman, said the violence was not consensual.

The legal role of consent

There is no single legal definition of consent. Each state sets its own definition, either in law or through court cases. In general, there are three main ways that states analyze consent in relation to sexual acts:

Affirmative consent: Did the person express overt actions or words indicating agreement for sexual acts?

Freely given consent: Was the consent offered of the person’s own free will, without being induced by fraud, coercion, violence, or threat of violence?

Capacity to consent: Did the individual have the capacity, or legal ability, to consent?



Capacity to consent

A person’s capacity, or ability, to legally consent to sexual activity can be based on a number of factors, which often vary from state to state. In a criminal investigation, a state may use these factors to determine if a person who engaged in sexual activity had the capacity to consent. If not, the state may be able to charge the perpetrator with a crime. Examples of some factors that may contribute to someone’s capacity to consent include:

Intoxication: Was the person intoxicated? Different states have different definitions of intoxication, and in some states it matters whether you voluntarily or involuntarily became intoxicated.

Relationship of victim/perpetrator: Was the alleged perpetrator in a position of authority, such as such as a teacher or correctional office?

"Looks Like A New Edition To The Sex Offenders List!"

Harvey Weinstein surrenders to authorities on sex-crimes charges
by John Riley, Anthony M. DeStefano and Mark Morales

Friday, May 25, 2018


(Manhattan, New York) - Disgraced movie tycoon Harvey Weinstein surrendered to authorities at a Manhattan police precinct Friday morning to face sex-crimes charges.


Weinstein arrived at the First Precinct shortly before 7:30 a.m. wearing a light blue sweater and dark suit. He was received outside the precinct by detectives.

He said nothing as he slowly limped inside past a large media presence.

"Who's Next?"
...and Walks Out of Court Arrested on Rape Charges!
by Benjamin Mueller and Alan Feuer

Friday, May 25, 2018



Harvey Weinstein turned himself in to New York City detectives and appeared in court on Friday on charges that he raped one woman and forced another to perform oral sex, a watershed in a months long sex crimes investigation and in the #MeToo movement.

With camera shutters clicking and reporters shouting questions, the scene was a mirror image of the red carpets where Mr. Weinstein presided for decades as a movie mogul and king of Hollywood.

In Kentucky, A 'Culture Of Indifference' To Sexual Harassment In Prisons
by Eleanor Klibanoff


Lisa Suliman, Jennifer Dennis and Colleen Payton


Jennifer Dennis came from a family of correctional officers, and, as a single mom, she was grateful for her good-paying job at Little Sandy Correctional Complex in rural northeastern Kentucky.

But then her supervisor took an interest in her — and she said her dream job quickly became a nightmare.

"At first, it was like rubbing my butt, or trying to grab my boobs, or trying to pinch my tail," she said.

But then, she said, Sgt. Stephen Harper began to get more aggressive. Once, he barged through the door as she was exiting a staff bathroom.

"That's when he pressed me up against the wall and was trying to get his hands down the top of my shirt and down my pants," she said. "He knew he scared me that time, because I cried a little bit and I screamed at him."

In 2014, Dennis and three other correctional officers sued Harper and the Kentucky Department of Corrections.

They accused Harper of repeatedly sexually harassing and assaulting them and other women for years at Little Sandy Correctional Complex.

The lawsuit also claims prison leaders failed to respond to these complaints, "creating a culture of indifference" around sexual harassment.

In court documents, the Department of Corrections argued it responded by "promptly investigating complaints and taking appropriate action."

But these women aren't alone. Through an open records request, the Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting obtained more than 3,500 pages of sexual harassment complaints filed by employees of Kentucky's Department of Corrections and Department of Juvenile Justice in the last six years.

That is nearly as many complaints as all other Kentucky state agencies combined.

"Prison is this very gendered environment," said Brenda Smith, a law professor at American University in Washington, D.C. "It's extremely sexualized."

Smith studies the intersections of gender, crime and sexuality.

She said prisons are a unique work environment — they're closed, insular and have long been male-dominated. "It's in many ways the Las Vegas rule," she said. "What happens here stays here. If there's some discipline to be done, we do it internally."

But when that system doesn't work, the alternative is sometimes the legal system. In the last year alone, there have been employee-on-employee sexual harassment settlements against prison systems in Missouri, Arizona, Wisconsin and other states.

Tiffany Haddish Reveals She Was Raped at 17 By a Police Cadet: I Went to 'Counseling'

by Ale Russian


Tiffany Haddish is opening up about a dark time in her life.

The 38-year-old actress appears on the latest cover of Glamour where she recalled being allegedly raped by a police cadet when she was only 17.

Haddish said the incident led to her seeking help and shaped the way she approached men in her life.
“That whole experience put me in such a messed-up place for a long time, and I ended up going to counseling,” she said.

“I notice that men are afraid of women that are aggressive.

So to protect myself I become semi-aggressive,” she explained. “You hear about, ‘Tiffany always hitting on somebody,’ but that’s to keep them from hitting on me.”

The experience also led her to want to make a change and help victims of sexual assault.

But the actress said she’s still figuring out what to do instead of just being vocal about it.

“Me just yelling out people’s names with no thought behind it is pointless. I need a plan,” Haddish said.

“I could be a voice, but what’s a voice going to do—just keep talking? Or is there action behind it?”
