Doubtful they can fire him for not showing up for work, at least not initially.

I don't know the ins and outs of the FOP/Union contract, but doubt that one or two absences rise to the level of firing. Perhaps a longer length of time, but he has a lawyer as well as an attorney who no doubt know their way around the rules of his employment.

I in no way defend Tensing, but I have no doubt his fellow officers as well as union representatives know the ins and outs of their contract.

I thought medical records were supposed to be electronically available to all your

medical people now.
Is it not implemented in your state or area?
If not, why not?
(Perhaps there is an amount of time _ years?- permitted for this to be done - I don't know.)

Also FYI: Tensing, through his union, has filed a grievance to get his job back.

Because the University if Cincinnati fired him without his due process rights under the union contract, and " because there was no just cause."
"While Officer Tensing was indicted for murder, an indictment is not a conviction."
A hearing must be held within seven calendar days.
The University spokeswoman said that the University stands by its decision to terminate Officer Ray Tensing.

Matthews was playing up the "Sanders is a Socialist" meme tonight.

"Do you really want to have a Socialist president?"

I don't the reasons, but at least we know he is being very obvious in downplaying Sanders.

I'm sticking. DU is one of my major news sources.

There are certain forums and groups I check regularly, a little off the beaten path maybe, as well as all the newly posted OPs, as time permits.

I can think of three whose postings I particularly looked for that haven't been around for a number of weeks.
I checked the last postings of one of them and saw it had become quite a brouhaha over one of the candidates.
I hope he returns, because he was a major contributor to one of the more minor groups I frequent.
Two others have just disappeared. - I'm concerned about the health of one, and the other may be on a temporary banishment, I hope.
Time will tell.

I'm non-confrontational myself and have no desire to get in the mud re any of the Dem. candidates.
I'll be voting for the Dem nominee, and, until that is decided, I'll be on the sidelines, cheering them all along.

Random drop-ins at 3 a.m. are not too cool.

OTOH, California is probably as well set up with social services as any place in the US. They likely even have some who go out to the "client" to assess, advocate and hopefully recommend viable choices for someone in this situation.

Apparently there was a book authored by Harry Hunt III.

I haven't looked it up yet, but it mentioned that Trump had unsuccessful scalp reduction surgery.

What the heck is scalp reduction surgery?
Is that why he wears the awful coiffeur?

Keep in touch with the person she is still in contact with.

If that person is willing, provide funds for that person to meet as frequently as possible with the young person, for meals at a unfancy restaurant. The contact person, if willing, can take her to non-threatening laces and activities - zoos, parks, movies, etc. - anything to keep the doors of communication open. If the young woman is still unkempt, they could go together to a hair stylist or shopping for presentable, clean clothes.

You and/or the mother and grandparents can provide the funds for these meals and activities to the contact person.

I agree with the suggestion to contact NAMI, especially the branch in her area.

Agree that studying Latin gives one a leg up in vocabulary.

I also studied Latin 4 yrs in high school, as well as French for 3 and more French in college, though I sure cannot speak French.

When it came time for daughter to choose high school, I ruled out my alma mater because at that time (late70's) Latin was in decline in high schools. Latin has since come back in favor in college prep courses, along with rise in other languages - Spanish, Chinese, etc.
