Attorney General Kane releases Sandusky review

Inexcusable delays throughout 2009 and 2010 HARRISBURG - A review of the Jerry Sandusky investigation released today by Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane confirmed that the investigation took too long because of crucial missteps and inexplicable delays in bringing a serial child molester to justice. The facts in the report show: It took a full year, from March 2009 until March 2010, for the office to recommend charging Sandusky because basic investigative steps were not taken, including searching Sandusky's home. In March 2010, career prosecutor Jonelle Eshbach circulated a draft presentment that recommended filing multiple charges against Sandusky, based on statements by Victim 1 and other corroborating evidence. But senior leadership at OAG failed to act on that recommendation for five months despite repeated requests... Read more →

FBI INVESTIGATING 4000 PUBLIC CORRUPTION CASES AROUND THE NATION

Public Corruption Update FBI Continues Efforts to Root Out Crooked Officials 06/17/14 The vast majority of public servants who work at the local, state, and federal levels of government are honest and dedicated folks who strive every day to do the right thing for their constituents, their communities, and their country.

Currently the Bureau is working more than 4,000 public corruption cases around the nation with the help of... Read more →

Common Core Is Corporate Welfare for Textbook Giants - Hit & Run : Reason.com

Opponents of Common Core have plenty of ammunition by now: The standards erode local autonomy, are costly to implement, and some experts dispute their rigor. But an underexplored aspect of this problematic national education reform is the massive financial incentive that certain textbook and standardized test companies have to keep the U.S. on board with it. TheWashington Post's Valerie Strauss provided a good example of Common Core's crony corporatist side in a recent article. There are two large, multi-state partnerships tasked with implementing Core-aligned standardized tests, and one of them—the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)—recently invited curriculum companies to compete for the contract to design the tests. Textbook giant Pearson won the contract, surprising no one. Pearson, a British company,... Read more →

My Complaint and Certification in John Paff v. Cape May County Prosecutor's Office, Docket No. CPM-L-265-14 are on-line here.

SCHOOL SEXUAL POSTER UPSETS PARENT

SHAWNEE, Kan. – A father said if his 13-year-old daughter hadn’t taken a picture of a questionable public poster and shown him, he’d never have known the content. Now that he knows, he’s not happy. Mark Ellis says his daughter goes to Hocker Grove Middle School in the Shawnee Mission School District. She was so shocked by what she recently saw on a poster at school, that she took a picture of it home and showed her parents. Her dad initially assumed it was a student prank, until he called the school and found it was part of the curriculum. “Why would you put it in front of 13-year-old students?” he asked. He thought the poster, which lists things like “oral sex” and “grinding,” might’ve... Read more →


Pet Tip of the Week: Rage Syndrome | cnbnews.net

by Dawn Watson cnbnews.net Some dogs have behavioral issues that can usually be helped with the proper training. However, in some instances, a dog can require the intervention of an animal behaviorist. First, it’s important to define the terminology: an animal behaviorist is a title bestowed upon an individual with a veterinary degree. A behavioral consultant is a title that indicates that the bearer has studied animal behavior and has furthered his or her education by means of continuing educational units and programs. I used the following quotes and synopsis from Wikipedia: Rage syndrome, or Sudden Onset Aggression is a relatively new term. It is described, according to Dr. Roger A Mugford, as behavior during which “…the dog will suddenly act aggressively to anyone nearby,... Read more →

N.J. celebrates 350 years of history from devious duke to 'Boxing Cats' [video] — NewsWorks

June 24 marks the 350th birthday of New Jersey. Not the State of New Jersey, of course, but the territory of New Jersey. In 1664, having just re-established monarchy rule in England, Charles II of the House of Stuart granted a huge piece of the New World to his brother James, the Duke of York (later King James II). James immediately divvied up the land among his friends. "The land between the Hudson and the Delaware rivers, he gave to Sir George Carteret of the Isle of Jersey and Lord John Berkeley," said Joseph Klett, director of the New Jersey State Archives. "Both of the noblemen had been loyal to the Stuart family during the British civil war." None of these people ever set foot... Read more →
