Who Is Connecticut Voices for Children?

Connecticut Voices for Children is a research-based public education and advocacy organization that works statewide to promote the well-being of Connecticut's children, youth and families.

CT Voices was founded in 1995 by four women who each had many years of experience working on behalf of children -- Shelley Geballe, Janice Gruendel, Judy Solomon and Nancy Lustman -- to enable Connecticut residents to be more effective voices for our children.

CT Voices has built a highly talented staff with education and experience in education, law, health, business, government and the non-profit sector. This multi-disciplinary approach allows us to offer new insights on recurring problems. Policymakers, political leaders, the media, other advocacy groups and others now regularly turn to CT Voices for public and budget analysis, and new ideas.

Subject: Policy Reform Activist gets railroaded to prison

To Whom It May Concern:

I proposed legislation that police should be able to write children detentions to be served at local schools year round for such offenses as smoking, in possession of alcohol, skateboarding where inappropriate, being rude and unruly, vandalism, etc. For my activism and concern for children and the community I was told to leave Connecticut, "Or else," by Connecticut State Police and Stafford Springs town police, does this sound ok to you? Should activities such as yours, concern for children, end up in harassment, abuse, and possibly prison?

Usually bad behaviors of youths are virtually ignored, especially in downtown areas, until crimes reach the felony stage, and a lifetime criminal parasite results, not a contributing taxpayer.
Complain about a system that concentrates on revenue collection, not criminal correction, and you, the whistleblower, can find yourself in a world of hurt.

I proposed the law as early as 1999 to both Republican State Senator, Anthony Guglielmo, and the former Democrat Representative, Mordasky.

I further stated in the proposed legislation, that police writing children detentions program could be run like an insurance points system. Students racking up enough points could do a short or longer stint in reform school.

Children’s parents should pay the costs of testing children for alcohol, drug, and cigarette use as part of the program if their kids are caught abusing said substances. This would also help end the drug scourge because if drug users are nipped in the bud, there is less overall demand, and less money going to corrupt officials and international criminals.

I contacted Governor Rowland’s office as early as 1998 claiming Connecticut downtown areas are criminal breeding grounds dues to police policies and how who the courts are targeting and not targeting.

I saw with my own eyes, perfectly good children committing worse and worse crimes, getting alcohol and drug addicted, terrorizing citizens and business owners, and ending up dead, in prison as a serious felon, and/or criminal parasite abusing substances.

Please look into my proposed legislation and in voicing concerns to legislators that those helping the community through Free Speech, and other protected activities of the First Amendment, should be encouraged and ACTUALLY protected.

It is up to us to force change for good, protect children, and see that America and its leaders act as advertised.
