This has to change.

Cecilia Urbina's curator insight, January 16, 2014 5:06 PM

People with learning disabilities are not getting the proper treatment in hospitals, due to the lack of knowledge and understandment by the staff. Staffs are unclear on how to proceed in certain situations unfortunately causing patients with learning disabilities to pay the price. This is a study funded by the National Institute for Health Research Health Services and Delivery Research Programme.

A similar incident happened to Chavis Carter a 21-year old American male who was found dead from a gunshot while handcuffed in the back of a police patrol car on July 29, 2012


The police car's recording device in the Carter case had "problems" and didn't record the sound just before and at the time of the shooting.

Body Snatchers of Old New York

Body Snatchers of Old New York | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

There was a lot to be afraid of in New York after the Revolutionary War. Burned buildings loomed out of dark, crooked streets, which met at strange angles. Fights broke out in the taverns, while thieves lurked in the shadows. Families huddled in shantytowns constructed out of ships’ canvasses, while garbage piled high on the corners. The city watch was nothing more than forty men with clubs.


Besides the thieves and the brawls, people feared the medical students. The young men in black suits who studied at Columbia College and New York Hospital did as their teachers from England and Scotland had done: they learned anatomy by dissecting bodies stolen from the local cemeteries. In London and Edinburgh, a quasi-professional class of grave-robbers known as the “Resurrection Men” dug fresh corpses from the cemeteries of the poor and brought them to the medical school. In eighteenth-century New York, the medical students robbed the graves themselves, sneaking into cemeteries on cold, moonless nights and carrying wooden shovels to avoid the loud scrape of metal on stone.


But the bodies on the dissecting tables in New York often had a different hue than the bodies in Europe.

Abortion is illegal in Haiti but women and girls are losing their uteruses and their lives as they turn to clandestine, increasingly deadly ways to terminate their pregnancies. These unsafe abortions are leading to a public health crisis in a region with one of the world’s highest rates of unintended pregnancies, experts say.

UN Expresses Concern on International Day to End Violence Against Women

UN Expresses Concern on International Day to End Violence Against Women | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it

Monday, November 25, is International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.


...The Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS – UNAIDS – says every hour 50 young women become newly infected with HIV. Many of those infections are related to violence.

“Lots of the gender-based violence [is] sexually related. There is a lot of data right now showing that most of the violence against women happens in the context of intimate partner violence – domestic violence. And many times it takes the face of non-consensual sex, which is a polite way to say rape,” said Dr. Mariangela Simao is UNAIDS Director of Rights, Gender, Prevention and Mobilization.

Simao said gender-based violence is strongly linked to HIV/AIDS.

Teen Thrown In Violent New York Prison For Years Without Ever Having Been Convicted

Teen Thrown In Violent New York Prison For Years Without Ever Having Been Convicted | Crimes Against Humanity | Scoop.it


"Bronx resident Kalief Browder was walking home from a party when he was abruptly arrested by New York City police officers on May 14, 2010. A complete stranger said Browder had robbed him a few weeks earlier and, consequently, changed the 16-year-old's life forever.


Browder was imprisoned for three years before the charges were dropped in June 2013, according to a WABC-TV Eyewitness News investigation.


At the time of the teen's arrest, Browder's family was unable to pay the $10,000 bail. He was placed in the infamously violent Rikers Island correctional facility, where he remained until earlier this year."

Kudos to this man for not taking the plea deal. The plea deal is bullsh*t that would have given him a permanent record making it nearly impossible for him to get a job at most companies for the rest of his life. #NewJimCrow 


And remember, this happened in the "Freedom Loving" United States. Freedom for who?
