Jack the Ripper copycat murders spark call for sex worker protection | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it
The nearest thing Jackie Summerford has to a grave for her murdered daughter is a small pine bookshelf in her front room. It is covered in poems, candles and trinkets – her way of remembering  her youngest child, Bonnie Barrett, who was murdered by a serial killer who police believe was imitating Jack the Ripper.

Domestic Violence Is Not a "Nuisance"

Domestic Violence Is Not a "Nuisance" | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

Lakisha Briggs was nearly evicted from her home for involving the police one too many times when her boyfriend tried to beat her.

 

That’s because cities and towns nationwide are passing "nuisance ordinances." These measures force landlords to evict tenants who are involved in disorderly behavior – even if they are victims of domestic violence.

 

No one should face homelessness for calling the cops to stop domestic violence! Sign our open letter calling for the repeal of nuisance ordinances so that women like Lakisha aren’t punished for calling the police.

Got Aspartame? Dairy Industry's Plan to Add Artificial Sweeteners in Milk | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

The FDA is collecting opinions on a dairy industry petition to change the standard of identity for milk. The dairy industry wants to be able to add artificial sweeteners to chocolate- and strawberry-flavored milk without saying so on the front panel of the package.

Facing Protective Orders and Allowed to Keep Guns

Facing Protective Orders and Allowed to Keep Guns | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

The National Rifle Association and its allies are challenging states’ efforts to take guns away from domestic violence offenders who have been served with civil protection orders.

 

...

For all its rage and terror, the episode might well have been prevented. Had Mr. Holten lived in one of a handful of states, the protection order would have forced him to relinquish his firearms. But that is not the case in Washington and most of the country, in large part because of the influence of the National Rifle Association and its allies.

 

Advocates for domestic violence victims have long called for stricter laws governing firearms and protective orders. Their argument is rooted in a grim statistic: when women die at the hand of an intimate partner, that hand is more often than not holding a gun.

 

In these most volatile of human dramas, they contend, the right to bear arms must give ground to the need to protect a woman’s life.
