From FB: Menstrual inequality at the border; ICE agents force girls and women to bleed through dirty clothes

MaryGSykes.com

Just when you thought the stories could not get any worse (and apparently this includes prisons too)  another topic comes up:  providing inadequate sanitary products to women and girls.

It was only a matter of time before President Donald Trump made headlines again over periods.

Just four years ago, in August 2015, he accused then–Fox News correspondent Megyn Kelly after the first presidential debate of having “blood coming out of her wherever.” The charge landed the once-taboo topic of menstruation smack in the middle of election coverage—and on the front page of nearly every major national and small-town newspaper in between.

New Study Confirms Foster Care System Harms Children

by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

The American Academy of Pediatrics recently published a study comparing “mental and physical health outcomes of children placed in foster care to outcomes of children not placed in foster care.”

The study claims to be the first of its kind looking specifically at these health outcomes.

Similar to other past studies looking at outcomes comparing foster children to those not placed in foster care, the results of this new study were predictable:

We find that children in foster care are in poor mental and physical health relative to children in the general population, children across specific family types, and children in economically disadvantaged families… Children in foster care are a vulnerable population in poor health, partially as a result of their early life circumstances.

Texas Judge Who Accepted Bribe Money In Beer Boxes Headed To Prison

HARRIS COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM/CNN) – A former state district judge in South Texas has been sentenced to five years in federal prison after being found guilty of accepting cash bribes in exchange for favorable court rulings.

Once the 66-year-old has served his prison sentence he will have two years of supervised release.

“Rudy Delgado used his position to enrich himself. He didn’t just tip the scales of justice, he knocked it over with a wad of cash and didn’t look back,” U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick said. “Delgado’s actions unfairly tarnish all his former colleagues.”

Delgado was a judge for the 93rd district court in…

How Corrupt Judges are Destroying Our Society

CORRUPTION WATCH-China’s Liu Qiangdong, founder of China’s “Amazon,” variously known as Jongdong, JD.com or simply JD, provides insight as to why the American judicial system is making America non-functional.

Corruption destroys trust and without trust, society breaks down, as described by a piece in the July 22, 2018 issue of The New Yorker, “How E-Commerce Is Transforming Rural China,”by Jiayang Fan.
