Cuomo’s Justice Center Operating Unconstitutionally



Jonathan Carey “Champion for the Disabled” Born September 12,1993 Killed by caregivers on February 15,2007

Judge’s decision shines light on unconstitutional practices of Governor Cuomo’s agency and his appointed prosecutor

Now is the time for this failed and corrupt agency to be swiftly defunded from the currently debated State budget and shut down. ”

— Michael Carey

DELMAR, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The criminal sexual abuse case just thrown out by Judge Breslin will literally put in question every other criminal case handled by Cuomo’s Justice Center. This State agency has been systematically bypassing County elected District Attorney’s regarding most crimes reported to them for almost four years. The News 10 piece is extremely damning http://news10.com/2017/03/30/sex-abuse-charges-dismissed-against-local-teacher/ revealing, “The case was being prosecuted by the New York State Justice Center, but the judge said the agency didn’t have the authority.” District Attorney’s or prosecutors are elected officials. Governor Cuomo appointed his own special prosecutor to circumvent local authorities, including County District Attorney’s to ensure that his employee could easily obstruct justice on a regular basis and make most criminal cases disappear internally. All oversight was shut down by the Cuomo administration, even all private protection and advocacy entities that were in place to assist the disabled.
Prosecutors are elected officials and are supposed to be independent determining criminal cases with non bias by reviewing evidence obtained by trained law enforcement officers, not employees of provider agencies. The Justice Center is operating contrary and is regularly circumventing the normal criminal justice system. Both the Albany Times Union http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Judge-Justice-Center-needs-to-work-with-elected-11039784.php and Spotlight News piece http://www.spotlightnews.com/towns/bethlehem/2017/03/30/judge-dismisses-justice-centers-case-against-teacher-accused-of-having-sex-with-student/ tell in greater detail regarding the tossed sexual assault case.
The Justice Center was renamed and relocated and deceptively rolled out following a massive award winning investigative reporting series titled “Abused & Used” which was a runner up for a Pulitzer Prize http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/nyregion/abused-and-used-series-page.html?_r=0. Governor Cuomo and his administrations purpose was not to stop and prevent the rampant physical and sexual abuse or staggering numbers of deaths of people with disabilities occurring within his agencies, but to hide as much of it as possible. This was done to give an appearance of reform, when in fact; it really was about covering up far more criminal cases, including criminally negligent deaths than ever before. This entity is currently fielding close to 7,800 calls to their abuse hotline for the disabled monthly and most criminal cases are never reported to local police or County elected District Attorney’s. The Justice Center, which is not a Justice Center, but primarily a call center, receives between 11-13 reports of deaths occurring throughout New York State’s extremely dangerous mental health system every single day. Most crimes committed against some of the most vulnerable New York State residents were and continue to be purposefully not criminally investigated and funneled back to both State and private provider agencies for internal investigations leading to most of them being covered-up. Most deaths are never even reported to County Medical Examiners or Coroners. Federal criminal and civil rights investigations have been requested and additional emergency actions must be taken by the New York State legislative leaders to protect upwards of 1,000,000 New York State residents with disabilities living in residential facilities and group homes.
Now is the time for this failed and corrupt agency to be swiftly defunded from the currently debated State budget and shut down. Most reported and witnessed crimes committed against the disabled never were reported to local police or ever criminally investigated and covered up by this State agency, including thousands of sexual assaults and deaths.
No longer can people with disabilities in New York State be treated as a lesser valuable group of people and denied their basic rights to 911 emergency services and emergency assistance or to have their cases heard in court. Bypassing the 911 call systems and keeping almost everything internal is not only an obstruction of justice, but is also preventing our most vulnerable from receiving immediate emergency police assistance causing many deaths. These discriminatory practices are denying this special group of people their equal right to equal protection of laws which also denies them justice. This is dead wrong and it is discrimination in civil rights. Stand with us for “equal rights” and “civil rights” for people with disabilities in New York State and throughout our great country by signing our petition at www.jonathancareyfoundation.org. No longer can 911 be bypassed. 911 call systems must be immediately called by all mandated reporters regarding all physical and sexual abuse, gross negligence of care, significant and suspicious injuries and when a person with a disability is in medical distress or has stopped breathing. http://jonathancareyfoundation.org/donate/

Texas Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges a Medical Doctor with Proof a Healthcare Facility in Texas Is Massively Over-Billing Medicare To Call About Potentially Huge Rewards

We are also super interested in hearing from physicians who have proof a drug company is off-labeling their pharmaceutical product or products”

— Texas Corporate Whistleblower

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, March 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Texas Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging a medical doctor with proof any type of healthcare facility or company in Texas has been and is engaged in a significant scheme to overbill Medicare to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 for a discussion about the federal whistleblower reward program. The group believes that many physicians in Texas know about Medicare overbilling but the 'good ol boy' system in Texas prevents them from stepping forward. The potential whistleblower rewards for companies/corporations involved in major schemes to defraud Medicare in Texas can result in substantial whistleblower rewards as the Center would like to explain anytime. http://Texas.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

The Texas Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are urging a physician with proof a healthcare company in Texas is involved in an ongoing scheme to rip-off Medicare to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 for a discussion about whistleblower rewards. We like to hear from a physician with proof a Texas nursing home is constantly short-staffed, a hospital emergency room is unnecessarily admitting Medicare patients for medical procedures they do not need, a skilled nursing facility overbilling for rehab, a company providing hospice services for people who don't need hospice, etc.

"We are also interested in hearing from physicians who have proof a drug company is off-labeling their pharmaceutical product or products. We are certain there are medical doctors in Texas who have the complete set of party pictures on a healthcare provider in Texas when it comes to big time Medicare fraud. The potential federal rewards for this type of information could be in the millions of dollars as we would like to discuss anytime at 866-714-6466. Why sit on a super big winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might/could have been worth?" http://Texas.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Texas Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Texas Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Whistleblowers with proof of wrongdoing frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or a Texas based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.” http://Texas.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in Texas can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://Texas.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com.

Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center Urges the Family of a Navy Veteran or Skilled Trades Worker in Florida to Call for Instant Access to The Nation's Top Compensation Lawyers for Better Results

We do not want a person with mesothelioma in Florida to get overcharged or shortchanged by a lawyer or law firm because they had no way of knowing what type of law firm to hire ”

— Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, March 28, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Most people who will be diagnosed with mesothelioma in Florida this year were not exposed to asbestos in Florida. About one third of the individuals who will be diagnosed with mesothelioma in the USA this year were probably exposed to asbestos in the US Navy. Another third are former factory workers or skilled trades workers who were exposed to asbestos at a workplace.

"As we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303 if a person with mesothelioma in Florida does not hire the nation's most skilled and capable mesothelioma attorneys they will not get properly compensated. When we say properly compensated we mean not losing out on hundreds of thousands or more in mesothelioma financial compensation because your hired an inexperienced lawyer/law firm or because you hired a law firm that will overcharge you." http://Florida.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Vital Mesothelioma Compensation Tips for a Person in Florida who has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma from the Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center: "Please think nationally when it comes to hiring a lawyer/law firm for a mesothelioma financial compensation for a recently diagnosed person in Florida-especially if they were exposed to asbestos in the US Navy or as a skilled trades/factory worker in the Northeast or Midwest.

"There is no state income tax in Florida and because of this-there a lot of people who want to retire in Florida. When people move to Florida they do not think of mesothelioma-they think of retirement.

"We do not want a person with mesothelioma in Florida to get overcharged or shortchanged by a lawyer or law firm because they had no way of knowing what type of law firm to hire to assist with a financial compensation claim. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or this is your loved one, please call us at 800-714-0303 to ensure you know what attorneys or law firms you should be talking to. When it comes to obtaining the very best possible mesothelioma compensation for a diagnosed person in Florida or their family-having extremely skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys is vital as we would like to discuss-anytime." http://Florida.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center wants to emphasize there is a statewide initiative available to a diagnosed victim anywhere in Florida including communities such as Miami, Jacksonville, Tampa, Saint Petersburg, Orlando, Hialeah, Fort Lauderdale, Tallahassee, Port Saint Lucie, or Cape Coral.
http://Florida.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Aside from their focus on the best possible compensation the Center is also very passionate about treatment options for mesothelioma. For the best possible mesothelioma treatment options in Florida the Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly recommends the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this hospital:

* The H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Florida: http://moffitt.org/

High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos now living in Florida include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, miners, manufacturing workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists or construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.

The Florida Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma and you live in Florida please call us at 800-714-0303, and compare the qualifications of who we consider to be the nation’s most skilled mesothelioma attorneys to any other lawyer, or law firm.”

Does using social media lead to divorce?

California Private Investigator

Our investigations show that Twitter and Facebook reveal heavy social media users are more likely to cheat on their spouse…

We have handled hundreds of cheating spouse cases, and have handled clandestine Internet investigations on a daily basis for over twenty years.”

— John A. DeMarr

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 28, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — John A. DeMarr, P.I., a California private investigator, has appeared on the cable television show AMERICA TRENDS with Dr. Gina Loudon, reporting on new research showing married couples aged 18 to 39 who use social media are twice as likely to be contemplating divorce.

DeMarr, a licensed California private investigator since 1988, discussed ways his investigators use social media to unmask cheating behavior, including a new study out of Boston University, showing married couples aged 18 to 39 who use social media are 32% more likely to think about leaving their spouse than similar married couples who do not use social media. The study revealed non-social network users are 11.4% happier with their marriage than heavy social media users. And heavy social media users were 32% more likely to think about leaving their spouse, compared with 16% for non-users.

“These results track with our experience,” says DeMarr, “and give our investigators a clear path to identifying and documenting high-risk pre-divorce behavior. The Boston University study confirms our investigative experience. Heavy social media users enlarge their circle of friends, seek out old flames, and hook back up with hometown, high school and college social circles. This behavior gives investigators with many examples of both flirting and outright infidelity.”

“The Boston University data show that a state with a 20 percent increase in Facebook users shows a 2.18% growth in the divorce rate,” says DeMarr. “This does not necessarily mean Facebook users are more likely to divorce. But it may be a significant predictor of divorce rates. And our investigations show that Twitter and Facebook reveal heavy social media users are more likely to cheat on their spouse, or give up information about hidden relationships. Social media sites are a treasure trove of information about cheating spouses.”

About John A. Demarr, Private Investigator: John A. Demarr, P.I., has provided consistently innovative private investigation services over thirty years of experience in California – always reasonably priced, always within the bounds of California law. We have handled hundreds of cheating spouse cases, and have handled clandestine Internet investigations on a daily basis for over twenty years.

F.A.R.M.S. TO FOOD BANK PROGRAM COULD FEEL THE PINCH FROM PROPOSED FEDERAL CUTS

F.A.R.M.S. to Food Bank program in Charlotte in need of local support

"You can't squeeze blood from a beet or turnip." ”

— Jillian Hishaw

ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, March 28, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Due to the current administration’s proposed budget cuts of 21 percent to agriculture, the need for food bank program like “F.A.R.M.S. to Food Banks” will help make up some of the difference that was already shrinking under the previous two administrations. Since 2005, the Meals on Wheels program which is a non-federal program devoted to feeding low income Seniors has distributed 23 million less meals. Our F.A.R.M.S. to Food Banks program purchases produce from small farmers and donates the produce to regional food banks, pantries and shelters in the farmer’s community within the Carolinas.

Although our program has donated over 120,000 lbs. of fresh produce in the past three years, the need for federal support keeps food bank programs like ours afloat. Personal donations are essential especially now that President Trump proposes to cut the Community Block Grant program which often provides federal support to programs like ours and Meals on Wheels. As we gear up for our fourth program season we request financial support for our efforts. Just a $20 donation can pay for a 40-pound bushel of potatoes generating 48 meal servings.

Ms. Jillian Hishaw, Esq. F.A.R.M.S., Founder, Director and Agricultural Attorney states “in 2015, we donated over 3,500 lbs. of fresh produce to low income Seniors in Charlotte within a 24-hour period, the need is great but financial challenges makes it hard to pay the farmers a fair price for their produce and maintain donation levels simultaneously. I don’t understand the justification for cutting federal funding for programs that provide a necessity. There’s only so much blood one can squeeze from a beet or turnip!”

F.A.R.M.S., is a regional nonprofit dedicated to protecting the family farmer against land loss through estate planning, education and retail market expansion services while relieving hunger in the farmer's community.
