SACRAMENTO Gov. Jerry Brown has decided to allow freedom for a woman whose punishment for killing her pimp became a call to arms against the practice of locking up juveniles for life.
Sara Kruzan, 35, was incarcerated at 16 after she killed the man she contended had groomed her since age 11 to work for him as a child prostitute. She was sentenced to life without parole for her crime, and her case became a high-profile example used by lawmakers and advocates for juvenile offenders seeking to soften such harsh sentences.
“It is justice long overdue,” said Sen. Leland Yee, a San Francisco Democrat who began championing Kruzan’s case a decade ago.
Yee called Kruzan’s case the “perfect example of adults who failed her, of society failing her. You had a predator who stalked her, raped her, forced her into prostitution, and there was no one around.”
In a video on Yee’s website, Kruzan said, “I definitely know I deserve punishment. You don’t just take somebody’s life and think that it’s OK. How much [punishment], I don’t know.”
After years of debate among state lawmakers, Yee’s legislation to allow new sentencing hearings for juveniles sent to prison for life without parole became law in January. In September, Brown signed a second bill requiring parole boards to give special consideration to juveniles tried as adults who have served at least 15 years of lengthy sentences. Advocates estimate there are more than 1,000 prisoners already eligible for parole hearings under that new law.
Even before passage of those bills, advocates convinced Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2011 to change Kruzan’s sentence to allow for parole. A Riverside judge in January further reduced her first-degree murder conviction to second degree, making her immediately eligible for release.
The state Board of Parole Hearings in June forwarded to Brown’s office its recommendation that she be released. A spokesman for the governor’s office said Brown has decided to allow the order to go into effect without his signature, almost two weeks before the deadline for his action.
Kruzan is housed at the Central California Women’s Facility in Chowchilla.

Tough free speech cases seem to have become a hallmark of the Roberts Court. This Term may be no exception, as the Justices consider whether a Massachusetts law creating a buffer zone to keep protesters away from abortion clinic entrance sidewalks is constitutional.
Recall that the Roberts Court has already wrestled with a federal ban on animal crush videos, a state law restricting sale of violent video games, issues related to protests at the funerals of deceased military service members, and a federal prohibition on false claims about military honors. In each of these controversial cases, the Court protected the free speech interests from regulation.
Now add to the list the case of McCullen v. Coakley, which pits a states interest in protecting women who want access to abortion clinics against the interests of anti-abortion protesters who want to be able to counsel and hand literature to women approaching clinics.
The case should be of interest to law students who are studying free speech and free expression, as well as to those studying constitutional law, reproductive rights, and gender jurisprudence.
The Court will not actually rule on the right to abortion in the case. State laws restricting access to abortion are proliferating, and a Supreme Court test reconsidering the scope of that right looms in the Courts future. Instead, the Massachusetts case involves a tension between the desire of anti-abortion protesters to speak with women who are approaching reproductive health clinics and the desire of the patients to be left alone.
It is important to understand the regulatory landscape to follow the issues in the case. Since 1994, federal law has protected access to abortion clinics against threats, intimidation, or violent interference with women seeking reproductive services. But a sizeable handful of states and cities choose to provide additional protection that goes beyond what federal law provides to help facilitate access to clinics.
Massachusetts is one such state. From 2000 to 2007, Massachusetts had a law that prohibited anti-abortion protesters from approaching with six feet of anyone walking or driving in a radius of eighteen feet from the entrance of an abortion clinic. Massachusetts said the law was justified by the need to cope with violence, intimidation, and harassment at abortion clinics. But abortion protesters challenged the law, asserting that it interfered with their right to free speech and expression protected by the First Amendment. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit upheld the law.
The 2000 law was patterned after a Colorado law that the Supreme Court upheld that same year in the case of Hill v. Colorado. By a vote of six to three, the Justices ruled that the Colorado law did not discriminate on the basis of viewpoint, was narrowly drawn, left open other means of expression, and was neither too vague nor overbroad, thus passing the basic tests required by the First Amendment. Of the nine Justices who took part in the Colorado case in 2000, only five remain on the Court: Justices Ginsberg and Breyer, who voted to uphold the law, and dissenters Justices Scalia, Kennedy, and Thomas.
Massachusetts amended its law in 2007 to create a thirty-five-foot buffer zone, which means that no one may protest or approach potential patients within that area surrounding either the front door of a clinic or the driveway into the clinic parking lot. Anti-abortion activists are free to protest outside the thirty-five-foot zone or to wait until after regular clinic hours. The state said the amendment was necessary because there was still harassment going on outside clinics. The state said the six-foot floating buffer in the old law was hard to enforce, and public safety required a larger, fixed no-protest zone.
The law was challenged by anti-abortion protesters who maintain that they want to peacefully hand out literature and talk to women who are approaching abortion clinics. They hope to make the women understand that there are alternatives to abortion and that they can help them understand their options. The thirty-five-foot buffer zone pushes them into the street or outer edge of the sidewalk or beyond entry driveways, they complained.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. Sept. 27, 2013 The Institute for Regenerative Medicine at Wake Forest University School of Medicine (Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center) has been selected to lead the second phase of the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine (AFIRM). The five-year, $75 million federally funded project focuses on applying regenerative medicine to battlefield injuries.
Anthony Atala, M.D., director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, is the lead investigator for AFIRM-II. He will direct a consortium of more than 30 academic institutions and industry partners. Assisting him is co-director Rocky S. Tuan, Ph.D., associate director of the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh.
The first phase of AFIRM, which began in 2008, resulted in clinical studies of face transplantation, minimally invasive surgery for craniofacial injuries, a lower-dose anti-rejection regimen after kidney transplantation, scar reduction treatments, fat grafting for reconstructive surgery and new treatments for burns. Atala was co-leader of AFIRM-I, which was comprised of two research consortiums.
“The AFIRM-I teams were charged with conducting at least one clinical study of a new treatment for wounded warriors,” said Atala. “Instead, due to their expertise, collaborative spirit and dedication to the mission, there were more than 10 clinical studies of potential new therapies. We are honored to have the opportunity to continue this important work to benefit those who serve our country.”
Regenerative medicine is a science that takes advantage of the body’s natural healing powers to restore or replace damaged tissue and organs. Therapies developed by AFIRM can also benefit people in the civilian population. AFIRM is a “results-focused” program that not only funds scientific research, but requires that discoveries be tested and compared so that the most promising therapies can be brought to clinical trials.
“When warriors come back from the battlefield with serious life-changing injuries, it is our job to find new and innovative ways to help them. Ultimately, we’d like to create new treatments to repair these severe injuries as if they never happened,” said Maj. Gen. Joseph Caravalho Jr., commanding general of the U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and Fort Detrick. “The science of regenerative medicine is one of the ways we fulfill our promise to service members who put themselves in harm’s way, that we will work our hardest and do our very best to take care of them.”
The AFIRM-II team will focus on developing clinical therapies over the next five years focusing on:
Members of the AFIRM-II team, known as the Warrior Restoration Consortium, are Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Clinic, Georgia Institute of Technology, Jewish Hospital, Johns Hopkins University, Livionex Inc., Massachusetts General Hospital, Mayo Clinic, New York University School of Medicine, Northwestern University, Oregon Health & Science University, Radboud University Medical Center, Research Foundation of SUNY, Rice University, Stanford University School of Medicine, Rutgers -The State University of New Jersey, Southwest Research Institute, Stratatech Corporation, The Ohio State University College of Medicine, Tufts University, University of California, Los Angeles, University of Cincinnati, University of Connecticut, University of Florida, University of Louisville School of Medicine, University of Maryland School of Medicine, University of Michigan, University of Pittsburgh, UW Medicine, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, Wake Forest University School of Medicine (Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center).

WASHINGTON, Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –Humanity United, a foundation dedicated to building peace and advancing human freedom, joined the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Goldman Sachs 10,000 Women initiative and Steven Spielberg’s Righteous Persons Foundation today in announcing the official start of the Partnership for Freedom’s first innovation challengeReimagine: Opportunity.
The Partnership for Freedom is a public-private partnership that aims to confront some of the deepest difficulties facing survivors of modern-day slavery in the United States.
Tens of thousands of people in the United States currently live in modern-day slavery. While efforts to combat this crime continue, care and support for trafficking survivors remain serious problems. Survivors face a plethora of obstacles as they enter a system that is not fully equipped to help them recover.
“The magnitude and scope of the problem is too large for the government alone to arrest all the perpetrators, rescue all the victims and restore all the survivors,” said George Sheldon, HHS acting assistant secretary for the Administration for Children and Families. “Together, in partnerships like this one, we can begin to turn the tables on those who subject their victims to the greatest degradations known to mankind.”
Through a series of three innovation challenges, the Partnership for Freedom encourages organizations and communities from across the country to submit new ideas to improve and increase services for human trafficking survivors. This public-private partnership was first announced by President Obama during his landmark speech on human trafficking in September 2012.
“I am so excited to be part of the Partnership for Freedom,” said Joye E. Frost, director of the Office for Victims of Crime at the Department of Justice. “With Humanity United and our federal partners, we have joined the Partnership for Freedom to cultivate these new ideas and innovative practices.”
The first challenge in the series, Reimagine: Opportunity, looks for innovative and sustainable ways to address three critical issues faced by human trafficking survivors:
“The goal of the Partnership for Freedom is to inspire communities to work together to address some of the key challenges facing survivors of modern-day slavery,” said Randy Newcomb, president and CEO of Humanity United. “We want to see new actors, new skills, new data, new ideas and new energy enter the anti-trafficking conversation. ”
Initial applications for Reimagine: Opportunity will be accepted until Nov. 17. Up to 25 finalists will be invited to attend an Innovation Workshop in Washington, D.C. to further develop their ideas. Final winners will begin piloting their solutions in Spring 2014.
The remaining two challenges will be announced in 2014 and 2015.
There is an ongoing debate on rights and freedom of speech and expression in the Internet age. For the Philippines, it began with the CyberCrime Prevention Act of 2012, with the inclusion of Online Libel provisions. It continued with the petitions before the Supreme Court. It goes on today with Nancy Binays e-violence bill, and the Santiago-Conjungco Magna Carta on Philippine Internet Freedom (MCPIF).
The Presidents argument in the inclusion of online libel in the Cybercrime Prevention Act is sound. We have rights, but it shouldnt be abused. Thats not whats wrong with the Cybercrime law. Whats wrong about it is how it goes about it.
The same tone exists with Nancy Binays e-violence bill. It seeks to prevent electronic attacks. The Binay argument is based on what the senator experienced during the campaign. Never mind that the bill she wishes to file doesnt actually protect her. Never mind that its inclusion into the Violence Against Women and Children, muddles VAWC. Never mind that e-violence goes about solving the purported protection for women, in the same way the cybercrime law does. To put it simply, a misnomer.
A meme, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary is an idea, behavior, style, or usage that spreads from person to person within a culture. A meme is a shortening of the Greek word, mimeme, and the word meme was first coined by Richard Dawkins. And an Internet meme is of course speech, and expression spreading from social networks, in email, as hashtags, video, photos, and so on. Even as viral marketing. It was meant to be shared. Meant to be viewed. Memes have been in existence since the dawn of the Internet.
Internet meme in the political context has taken over what political cartoons used to be. Public figures and public personas are the favorite targets of meme. President Aquino is a target. And his successor would be too. Just ask many Internet sites, and Facebook pages that love to attack the president.
Sometimes the meme is totally baseless, intellectually dishonest and at times, propaganda and opinion. The deputy press secretary, Abigail Valte, for example has been a victim of meme attacks. Her face, embedded with words she didnt actually say. Perhaps, it is the cognitive bias built by an echo chamber that exist only to validate their world view.
During the 2013 Senatorial campaign, Nancy Binay has been a victim of memes. A favorite target partly because she refused to engaged the online world, and partly because the online community is hardly her demographic. And so, apparently her ego bruised by the recent campaign.
President Aquino, Nancy Binay and Abigail Valte share the same problem. They are publicly attacked. Now, it can be argued that all three are public figures. Do they deserve it? Whether the attacks had basis or not, is beside the point. Every public figure should be ready to have their reputations and image disfigured because we live in a democracy that doesnt place unnecessary demand of intelligence to be heard. So the bar of libel and the bar of tolerance ought to be set higher than the ordinary citizen. It can be argued that as public officials ought to have thicker hides. it can also and rightly argued that sometimes public opinion can take it a bit far, and below the belt.
Would an amendment on Violence against women help protect Deputy Press Secretary Valte or Senator Nancy Binay? The quick answer is: No because the matter is not a domestic issue because the Violence against women and children is focused on domestic violence so the proposed e-violence bill doesnt work for them. Whats more, the leveling of playing field that is the Internet doesnt give any sex more power or less power on the Internet. While it is true, that women are far more easy targets in the real world, on a purely statistic basis, there are 47% male users and 53% female Facebook users in Philippines, compared to 49% and 51% in United Kingdom and 49% and 51% in France.

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) –
The National Underground Freedom Center will stay open on Sunday to give families a final chance to see a special exhibition.
Women Hold Up Half the Sky is a one-of-a-kind exhibition based on the New York Times best-selling book Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl Wu-Dunn. The book is part of the “Half the Sky” movement, which also includes a PBS documentary.
Co-author Nicholas Kristof was at the Freedom Center on march 2 when he received the International Freedom Conductor Award along with Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth.
The exhibition uses paintings, quilts, photos, videos and audio experiences to share the stories of women across the globe who are overcoming oppression through economics and self-determination.
The exhibit focuses on three main themes- overcoming gender-based violence through entrepreneurism, maternal health and human trafficking.
Visitors will leave informed on the issues facing women today. They can also learn ways to get involved in the movement.
The exhibit will be open on Easter Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Freedom Center open on Easter Sunday
CONWAY, S.C. (AP) — The top-seeded Liberty women’s basketball team got a big boost before the Big South championship game from an unlikely source – Liberty’s men’s team.
About three hours before the Lady Flames hit the floor at the HTC Center to play seventh-seeded Longwood, they learned that the men completed a four-game run through their tournament to win a Big South title despite coming into the week with 20 losses. Liberty’s women weren’t about to disappoint a campus suddenly primed for a double-dose of March Madness and followed up with a 54-45 victory Sunday night, their fifth straight tournament title.
”Seeing that the men had defied all odds, it gave me a lot of extra energy,” Liberty’s Brittany Campbell said. ”All of us were, ‘Let’s do this. Let’s have a double championship.”’
It happened before, the last time the men made the NCAA in 2004. Now, both squads will wait out NCAA selections with something to cheer about.
”It’s a beautiful feeling,” said Devon Brown, the women’s tournament MVP.
Tolu Omotola scored 16 points for Liberty (27-6), which will carry a 14-game win streak into its NCAA tournament site. It’s the Lady Flames’ 15th NCAA trip in the past 17 years.
The Liberty men won four games in six days, capped by an 87-76 upset over Charleston Southern. They watched the women from behind the basket, then joined the celebration after the school’s second title. All the players, men and women, posed for photos on the court before the Lady Flames cut down their nets.
Omotola had nine points to spark a 17-8 run to start the second half as the Lady Flames took control. Longwood (14-19) had cut a 15-point lead to 53-45 in the final seconds, but got no closer.
Ashley Rininger had 10 points, while Brown grabbed 13 rebounds for Liberty.
Coward had 14 points to lead Longwood, which struggled with its shooting throughout. The Lancers’ high-scoring guards Daeisha Brown and Crystal Smith, who came in averaging better than 27 points a game combined, finished with just six points on 2-of-23 shooting.
