CBS2 - MURDER/ABUSE CASE IN GROUP HOME
MONDAY MARCH 21st
check for programming times:
For those who are interested in justice for those with special needs, the elderly or anyone who is in a state-funded institution, please tune in to CBS Channel 2 Dave Savini's special report on Monday. Some of you may know that my brother, Paul, who was mentally disabled, was beaten in a group home downstate and died of his injuries. He was beaten by staff. There will be two criminal trials ( the staff involved confessed and are charged with murder ) and a civil trial. Shawn Collins ( you may remember him from the Jeff and Sara FREE SPEECH case) is representing my family in the civil matter.
I have so far told a handful of DAWN people about this matter, the details of which are still unfolding. As time goes on this cause of protecting our most vulnerable- the handicapped, the elderly, will be something that I plan on advocating for. Legislation is already being drafted to prevent this type of event from occurring again. Stay tuned for details. K

Join the March 19 facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=129641663770855<http://www.facebook.com/#!/event.php?eid=129641663770855>
The people of the world are in motion. From Egypt to Bahrain, a wave of struggle is sweeping the Arab world. Here, in the United States, hundreds of thousands of working people are marching for union rights in Wisconsin, Ohio and elsewhere. Students are taking action to stop budget cuts and tuition hikes on campuses throughout the country.
These events show that only the people have the power to make change. They also prove once again that collective action matters. It is time for the anti-war movement to take our message to the streets. March 19, the 8th anniversary of the criminal "Shock and Awe" invasion of Iraq, will be an important step in the struggle.
On March 19, tens of thousands of people will demand an end to U.S. war and military intervention abroad and funding for people's needs at home. Mass demonstrations are planned in Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago and many other cities across the United States and the world.
ANSWER Chicago is calling on everybody to come out into the streets, march with others who are struggling for justice and be a part of a fight back movement!
