MA ATTORNEY GENERAL LOOKS IN ON DANVERS – SUPERVISION – 3

DANVERS, MA  –  Stopping short of calling it an investigation, a spokesperson for Attorney General Maura Healey said her office has requested “more information” from both the Danvers schools and Police Department in light of allegations of sexual and physical abuse, racism and other unacceptable behavior among varsity hockey players.

Healey, through her spokesperson, described the accusations as disturbing and extremely troubling.

“Racism, homophobia, and bigotry of any kind have no place in our locker rooms, rinks and playing fields.  If you think sports are about bullying and hazing, you’re losing, and our kids are paying the price,” Healey wrote in social media posts this week.  The posts were not specific to the Danvers situation.

Boston attorney Mitchell Garabedian, who has represented thousands of Catholic Church sexual abuse victims, on Thursday called on Healey or federal authorities to investigate what he described as an “institutional coverup.”

A former varsity hockey player who declined to be named told authorities and news reporters that teammates engaged in racist and sexual misconduct during the 2019-2020 season.

In previous interviews with The Salem News, his account touched on hazing, racism, homophobic and sexual misconduct by the then- varsity hockey team.  He said the toxic culture allowed younger players to be bullied and hushed.

Police and the district attorney’s office said the unnamed hockey player declined to file a criminal complaint and thus they cannot pursue charges.

Danvers school and police officials conducted investigations into the accusations earlier this year.  They declined to release unredacted copies of the reports, contending privacy laws prevented full disclosure.

Some residents have called for the resignation of the School Committee and Superintendent Lisa Dana over the matter.  The hockey coach, Danvers Police Sgt. Stephen Baldassare, resigned from the team in July.

Healey previously issued guidance to Massachusetts schools regarding “legal obligations to prevent and address hate and bias incidents.”  Details were sent in November 2020 to school administrations throughout the state, according to the AG’s office.

When handling such incidents, Healey’s guidelines call for “transparency.”

“Hate incidents can have a significant and disruptive impact on the school community and are frequently the subject of broad community interest.  Schools should strongly consider issuing a prompt and clear communication to the school community when a hate incident occurs, particularly when dealing with incidents that are serious, public, or likely to be the subject of rumors and gossip,” the guidelines suggest.  “The communication should vigorously condemn hateful or biased conduct, explain the steps that the school is taking to address the incident, and reaffirm the shared values of the school community, such as respect for differences and a commitment to inclusivity, equity, and safety for all students.”

The former player spoke confidentially to the Salem News because he said he wanted to alert the community.  He did not want his name used, fearing retribution from teammates and town hockey fans.  He also spoke to school and police investigators.


He said he sensed his accounts of bad behavior were not taken seriously.  He did not file a criminal complaint in order to protect himself.

He said he was told to strip naked for “Gay Tuesdays,” when older players would turn off the locker room lights and inappropriately touch younger players.  Players who resisted were made to do so with force, he said.

He also said he was beaten with a sex toy for refusing to shout a racial slur on “Hard-R Fridays,” named for the final ‘r in the n-word.  Players would line up in front of their hockey bags and scream racial slurs, one by one, he said.

“There was a team dildo,” he said, named the Pink Dragon, for use on those who refused to join in the ritual.

He said he believes Hard-R Fridays came about from a toxic culture where racist players wanted teammates to be like them.

Do You Let People In Your House Without Asking

AH, come on Dad, I can get my own fish, please Dad please, let me go with you…

ATTENTION:  One by one, your accounts
are being hacked due to poor security

DO YOU WANT TO STOP THIS BEFORE IT HAPPENS TO YOU????

#1 – DO NOT LEAVE ANY EMAIL IN YOUR ACCOUNT FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW WHO IT IS FROM PERSONALLY!!!!  DO NOT JUST DELETE IT, MARK IT AS “SPAM“, AND WHEN ASKED, REPLY “YES, REPORT THIS”.

#2 – Start keeping your email account as near EMPTY AS POSSIBLE, this is not always people from another country… If there is any doubt about what I mean by this, just ask me privately.

#3 – Change your password NOW!!!!  Then, make your new password unique, at least 12 – 15 characters long, with a mixture of caps, little letters, numbers, and symbols.

#4 – TURN ON TWO (2) STEP VERIFICATION, AND USE IT EVERYTIME.

#5 – When you see a friend wanting to be your “Friend” on Facebook, get a screenshot if at all possible, and TELL YOUR FRIEND IMMEDIATELY!!!!  Then, contact FB Support IMMEDIATELY!!!!  FB Messenger is very vulnerable due to users being complacent about security.

#6 – Get a top-of-the-line Security Suite, NOT A FREE ONE.  Your family is worth it, and you will sleep better.  My Security Suite covers 5 devices, and my Wi-Fi.  Then set your “HOME” network as “PRIVATE” not “PUBLIC”.   Use a “PUBLIC” Wi-Fi as little as possible, and then, only if you have a very good Securiy Suite.  NOTE:  Children should not be allowed to use a “PUBLIC” Wi-Fi.  It is a Parent’s job to supervise their Children 24/7, and teach them the proper, secure way in our digital world.

#7 – I also utilize a top-of-the-line VPN, I suggest you all do also.  Once again, your family is worth it, and you will sleep better.

#8 – This is not the end of everything I could bring up, like apps for children’s devices, or not putting your families info on a page for the world to see, and certainly not posting pictures of your family or even your children.  HOWEVER do not post less than fully dressed pictures of children!!!!

#9 – NOW, last but not least, how do you find out if your lack of proper security has set you and your family up for, at the very least, mental abuse…. or possibly a site did not do their job of making sure your data was secure????  These money people are getting off with symbolic slaps on the hand for BEING COMPLACENT WITH YOUR DATA!!!!  I have just what you all need to find out if your email address has been compromised, AND you can setup notifications for future breaches.

have i been pwned?

Nearly 50 Hollywood Actors Threaten To Boycott If ‘Heartbeat’ Abortion Bill
Becomes Law

“Thank You!!!! We Appreciate You Georgia”
Robert StrongBow

Georgia lawmakers Friday turned aside threats from Hollywood celebrities and gave final legislative approval to a bill that would ban most abortions in the state.

One day after the Writers Guild of America threatened that Georgia would pay a steep fiscal price if the anti-abortion “heartbeat” bill wins final approval, a coalition of Hollywood celebrities joined with Alyssa Milano to warn that they, too, will push for the entertainment industry to flee the state if, as is likely, the bill becomes law.

A letter to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp has been signed by nearly 50 stars including Alec Baldwin, Amy Schumer, Gabrielle Union, Rosie O’Donnell, Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman, Essence Atkins, Uzo Aduba, Christina Applegate, Ben Stiller, Sean Penn, David Cross, Don Cheadle, Mia Farrow, Colin Hanks, Bradley Whitford and Amber Tamblyn, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

However, if the letter’s goal was to short-circuit the bill, that strategy failed.

On Friday, the Georgia House gave the bill final legislative passage by a 92-78 vote, one vote more than the bare minimum needed to pass.

Last week, Georgia’s Senate approved the law banning most abortions after six weeks from conception, the time at which a baby’s heart starts to beat.  Kemp has indicated he would sign the bill if it cleared the legislature.

But the law has run afoul of what the celebrities will support.

“This dangerous and deeply-flawed bill mimics many others which have already been deemed unconstitutional,” the letter from the Hollywood celebrities read.  “As men who identify as small-government conservatives, we remind you that government is never bigger than when it is inside a woman’s body or in her doctor’s office.

“This bill would remove the possibility of women receiving reproductive healthcare before most even know they are pregnant and force many women to undergo unregulated, hidden procedures at great risk to their health.”

The letter closed with a clear threat.

“We want to stay in Georgia,” it said.  “We want to continue to support the wonderful people, businesses, and communities we have come to love in the Peachtree State.  But we will not do so silently, and we will do everything in our power to move our industry to a safer state for women if H.B. 481 becomes law.  You have a choice, gentlemen.  We pray you make the right one.”

Many on Twitter suggested the actors leave Georgia’s policymaking to Georgians.

Hey @Alyssa_Milano Mother to mother, actress to actress, and as a proud Georgian, I’ve got some things to say to you.  I’m incredibly proud of my home state and @GovKemp for taking a stand in the fight for life amidst backlash and dubious threats. https://t.co/dpwDFn6O70

Killing babies is bad for all business, ma’am.  We have no interest here in Georgia of taking our 30 pieces of silver in exchange for what Hollywood is peddling, much more interested in standing up for Truth and Life 🙂

Republican State Rep. Trey Kelley was not intimidated.

“I think it’s sad that some will try to use the movie industry to stop good legislation in Georgia.  But with any proposal I do — and I know many members of (the Republican) caucus — weigh the merits of the legislation, they don’t pay attention to what special-interest groups have to say about it,” he said, according to The Journal-Constitution.

State Rep. Ed Setzler, who sponsored the bill in the House, said the bill represented what “commonsense Georgians” were about.

“This bill recognizes the fundamental life of the child in the womb is worthy of legal protection and balances that basic right to life with the very different situations women find themselves in pregnancies,” he said.

But many Democrats were siding with Hollywood, including Stacey Abrams, who lost the governor’s race to Kemp last year.

The film industry is now integral to our economy.  Ask the carpenters, hairdressers, caterers, electricians & artists from Senoia to Savannah who rely on these jobs to feed their families.  For them, for us, Georgia isn’t Hollywood – it’s home.  #gapol #HB481IsBadForBusiness

Mississippi recently passed a similar bill.  “Heartbeat” legislation also has been proposed in Tennessee, Florida, South Carolina and Ohio.

Animal -A Man That Hits a Woman and a child

.jpg photo of domestic violence graphicI saw this and it made my blood boil, but there was no way that I could resist sharing this.  We are at a point in time on this earth where there is quiet a few people that thinks it’s cool, or acceptable, to terrorize and/or hurt the weakest members of society.  I’m talking about our Elders, women, or children.

You know the funny thing is that actually, there is no animal on this earth that just inflicts pain on another creature just to terrorize , in fact all I know of only hunt and kill just for food.  So if I would have put that H1 up there, I would have said “Lower Than A Gutless Sewer Rat”.

How can anyone think it is funny to Bully someone until they consider suicide????  Well I want you to know that I don’t turn my head away, and from what I can see from this other good man named Robert, who just happens to be from Australia, and he’s the writer of this post that I shared, I don’t much think he likes it too much for people to hurt women, children, or our elders.

I think you get my meaning, so at this time I’m proud to introduce Mr. ROBERT SHERRIFF, who really is from Australia,

The Slaughter House PPH Cares Nothing For Womens Health

Many conservatives and Christians feel that the “women’s health” organization cares about anything but that..

Planned Parenthood Exposed for Alleged Horrible Treatment of Pregnant
Employees

This goes without saying, but Planned Parenthood is a deeply polarizing organization.

“The evidence suggests,” concludes a 2018 study published in the Open Journal of Preventive Medicine, “that [Planned Parenthood] has had a long-term inflationary effect on the incidence and prevalence of abortion in the U.S.”

Many conservatives and Christians feel that the “women’s health” organization cares about anything but that, and there’s certainly ample evidence to back that up.

Planned Parenthood aborts more than 300,000 babies a year, and abortion is an increasing part of the organization’s work.

Now we can add “raging hypocrites” to the ugly words associated with the group, according to a new New York Times report.

The Times reports that Planned Parenthood “has been accused of sidelining, ousting or otherwise handicapping pregnant employees, according to interviews with more than a dozen current and former employees.”

An organization that paints itself as a champion for pregnant women across the world is treating its own pregnant employees terribly?  That is truly hypocrisy at its worst.

Some of the stories that The Times reported on are truly horrific, made all the worse by Planned Parenthood’s portrayal of itself as a champion of women’s reproductive rights.

Take, for instance, Planned Parenthood medical assistant Ta’Lisa Hairston.  One of her job functions is to tell pregnant women various ways in which to stay healthy, such as taking rest breaks, staying hydrated and eating regular meals.

Imagine Hairston’s dismay when she couldn’t even follow her own advice when she got pregnant.

It’s not that she didn’t want to follow her own advice.  She couldn’t because of her superiors at Planned Parenthood.

Hairston told her human resources department that her high blood pressure was threatening her pregnancy.  She was even able to obtain nurse’s notes recommending she take frequent breaks, for her health and that of her unborn child.

Planned Parenthood officials turned up their noses at Hairston’s predicament.  She told The Times that she rarely had time to rest or take lunch breaks.

“I had to hold back tears talking to pregnant women, telling them to take care of their pregnancies when I couldn’t take care of mine,” Hairston said.  “It made me jealous.”

Hairston was hardly the only case of Planned Parenthood ignoring a pregnant employee’s needs.  Interviews and legal documents procured by The Times revealed other instances of managers ignoring doctor-recommended rest breaks.

Managers are also alleged to have taken pregnancy into consideration when hiring.

More subtly, Planned Parenthood was also accused of fostering an environment where pregnant employees were afraid to speak up out of fear of seeming like they were abandoning their coworkers.

Upper management was also accused of viewing the accommodation of pregnant employees as “expensive and inconvenient.”

Unreal.  Planned Parenthood is a lot of things, depending on who you ask.  But based on these Times reports, even the most ardent supporters will struggle to defend the organization against hypocrisy.
