Incredible and powerful video about the issue of rape in state hospitals--one family's story

that didn't get a lot of media attention. This event took place at Sonoma Developmental Center, originally Sonoma State Hospital. The Center for Investigative Reporting/California Watch does an amazing job with their videos. This is poignantly done and is worth 12 minutes of your time.

2. The "Circle-the-wagons" response

of the involved care facilities is truly disgusting. Of course - the staff's welfare is much more important than the crazy folks they get paid to care for!

3. Sometimes...

...as I read stories and listen to clips like this about one injustice after another that has occurred in THIS country, I am more and more convinced that we have become a third world country. Do these kinds of injustices happen in other industrialized countries? I don't even know why I ask, as I wouldn't be comforted by whatever the answer is. An injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere. I pray for all those who are suffering injustices at this moment. Hopefully, as each of them are discovered, our better angels will swoop in and make things right.
