A prosecutor makes an unusual request as a confessed Brooklyn killer is sentenced to 50 years to life in prison for torching an eldery woman to death inside an elevator 

A prosecutor makes an unusual request as a confessed Brooklyn killer is sentenced to 50 years to life in prison for torching an eldery woman to death inside an elevator  | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it

As a convicted killer was sentenced to prison Friday, a seasoned prosecutor said a video showing the monster torching an elderly Brooklyn woman inside an elevator was so horrific that it should never be made public.

 

“It’s permanent part of my dreamscape. I have nightmares, and that tops the list,” Assistant District Attorney Mark Hale said of the shocking images of Deloris Gillespie being burned alive.

 

“I have no desire to inflict this on anybody else.”

 

Her murderer, Jerome Isaac, a 48-year-old homeless handyman, pleaded guilty to the heinous Dec. 2011 homicide in return for a sentence of 50 years to life in prison — nearly guaranteeing he will never again enjoy freedom.

 

The security camera footage captured him dousing Gillespie, 73, with gasoline as she cowered inside the elevator of her Prospect Heights building, and then tossing a Molotov cocktail at her to ignite the blaze.

“This has to be one of the most horrific crimes I’ve ever seen,” said Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Vincent DelGiudice, who’s been practicing law for over 30 years. “This is something one cannot take in one’s mind.”

The remorseless murderer, who confessed to killing Gillespie over a $2,200 housework debt, had his sentencing postponed in November after claiming he “hears voices” and that “the devil made me do it.”

 

But a subsequent psychiatric evaluation concluded he is fit to face justice.

Prosecutors said they agreed to the plea deal to spare the victim’s relatives and the public from a gruesome trial.

Power of Attorney judgment puts vulnerable in legal limbo

Power of Attorney judgment puts vulnerable in legal limbo | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it
THOUSANDS of vulnerable Scots could be thrown in to legal limbo after a court questioned the validity of documents that allow loved ones to make decisions on their behalf.
waine-warren's insight:

Lawyers have warned as many as half of all continuing Powers of Attorney (PoA), papers drawn up by solicitors to let friends or family manage the financial and property affairs of those incapable of doing so themselves, could be invalid.


Their concerns were sparked when Sheriff John A Baird, ­writing in a formal judgment, argued that a single continuing PoA, drawn up in a standard style, was illegal.

 

His view would see thousands of families and institutions forced to redraft PoAs.

 

However, some documents now in doubt may have been signed by people who were of sound mind when they did so, but who are no longer capable of making such a decision.

Family Law Act must be changed make child safety the priority

Family Law Act must be changed make child safety the priority | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it
WHEN it comes to family violence, there is a huge gap between the rhetoric and the reality. We all want women and their children to be safe from abuse, but at present the system is particularly stacked against the kids.
waine-warren's insight:

You might be surprised to know the rights of an abusive, violent parent comes before the rights of their child.

 

That’s right. Under the present law, a father can threaten to kill his partner, hit her and set her house on fire and he can still get access to their children.

 

This is very wrong.

 

Clearly, the law needs to change. Violent men should not be allowed to play happy families every second weekend.

Family Law Week: Greece becomes sixteenth state to sign up to EU international divorce cooperation procedure

Family Law Week: Greece becomes sixteenth state to sign up to EU international divorce cooperation procedure | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it

Greece has announced its decision to join the 15 countries already participating in EU rules which allow international couples to select which country's law applies to their divorce. Under the rules, in place since June 2012, EU Member States decided to proceed with integration through the 'enhanced cooperation' procedure. 

The regulation on the law applicable to divorce aims to provide assistance to weaker partners during divorce disputes. International couples are able to agree in advance which law would apply in the event of their divorce or legal separation. In case the couple cannot agree, judges will have a common formula for deciding which country's law applies. The Regulation has no effect on national divorce or marriage laws, nor does it foresee the adoption of rules affecting substantive family law of the Member States. 

With almost 1 million divorces in the EU area in 2009 (Eurostat data) the solution helps couples of different nationalities, those living apart in different countries or those living together in a country other than their home country and protects them from complicated, lengthy and painful procedures.

The United Kingdom has not indicated any intention to join the scheme. 

waine-warren's insight:

Details of the other 15 signatories


EU governments adopted the Council Decision authorising enhanced cooperation on the law applicable to divorce and legal separation in July 2010 (IP/10/917). As a consequence, the 14 participating countries (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia and Spain) adopted a Council Regulation that contains detailed rules on the choice of the law applicable to international divorces (called Rome III Regulation). The Regulation entered into application on 21 June 2012. It has no effect on national divorce or marriage laws

Connah's Quay man stole £95,000 of his elderly mum's money

Connah's Quay man stole £95,000 of his elderly mum's money | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it

A man “frittered away” £95,000 of his elderly mother’s cash on holidays and a honeymoon, after he was made power of attorney over her financial affairs.

 

Engineer Michael Edward Palframan, from Connah's Quay, used the cash to fund a lavish lifestyle, bought jewellery and even used it to pay for his honeymoon – a sunshine Caribbean cruise.

 

Palframan, 53, of St David’s Court, was jailed for two years and eight months at MoldCrown Court today after he admitted two charges of dishonestly abusing his position as power of attorney over the affairs of Louise Palframan, 84, by applying her funds for his own purposes.

 

Mrs Palframan's home was sold in order to fund her care in a residential home – but after the defendant  spent the proceeds from that sale,  he started dipping into her pension.

Illiberal democracy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Illiberal democracy

An illiberal democracy, also called a pseudo democracy, partial democracy, low intensity democracy, empty democracy or hybrid regime, is a governing system in which, although elections take place, citizens are cut off from knowledge about the activities of those who exercise real power because of the lack of civil liberties.

waine-warren's insight:

 It is not an 'open society'. There are many countries "that are categorized as neither "free" nor "not free," but as "probably free," falling somewhere between democratic and nondemocratic regimes. This may be because a constitution limiting government powers exists, but its liberties are ignored, or because an adequate legal constitutional framework of liberties does not exist.


The term illiberal democracy was used by Fareed Zakaria in a regularly cited 1997 article in the journal Foreign Affairs.

 

According to Fareed Zakaria, illiberal democracies are increasing around the world and are increasingly limiting the freedoms of the people they represent. Zakaria points out that in the West, electoral democracy and civil liberties (of speech, religion, etc.) go hand in hand. But around the world, the two concepts are coming apart. He argues that democracy without constitutional liberalism is producing centralized regimes, the erosion of liberty, ethnic competition, conflict, and war. He points out that Russia is democratic but because of Putin’s super presidency, illiberal. In order to solve this problem, Zakaria proposes that the international community and the United States must end their obsession with balloting and promote gradual liberalization of societies.
