Thoughts about Felicity Huffman’s conviction

In family, justice on September 14, 2019 at 07:12

Yesterday the news of Felicity Huffman’s trial reacted Denmark and it made me think about if I have parented correctly.

I have two children. One is studying at the University and another is attending a high school.

The one in University is very ill. Thanks to the social services who sent her to treatment despite the warnings of a full team of doctors who warned the social services that removing her from her home would inflict a serious mental illness upon her, she is now suffering from Schizoaffective disorder.

She is studying the English language which has no future in Europe because due to Brexit the Europe Union will go down and become a number of countries which nothing in common not even being able to communicate properly because the populations the countries speaks strange local dialects, none care to learn. Thanks to her low grades in high school due to her illness, English was the only line of studies, she could get in to.

She wanted to study Japanese which I believe is an result of her illness. Japan was bombed into learning their place and has nothing to offer but English it became and she is doing fine living alone with her cat in a remote village when she is not studying at the university.

I could have done more. I could have hired someone to read through her high school main assignment – the SRP report – so it flaws could have been corrected. She got a 4 for it, which equals B- in the United States. It disqualified her from most universities and business schools. I question myself. Who did I not buy the help? Am I a failure as a parent?

The youngest is attending a high school. I have to say that I purchased for about 3,000 dollars of help for my youngest. They go to a private tutor who comes 2 hours per week teaching him the math, he did not get in elementary school. 10 years ago the Danish parliament decided to destroy the public school system, so parents with money sent their children to private schools. Back then I did not have that kind of money, so he had a total of 13 math teachers during a period of 9 years.

I would had bought this help unless he himself had the motivation. He got a B+ at the summer tests, so he was able to turn himself around. I have bought more than 5 liters of Vodka also, so he can socialize and avoid the isolation, my oldest have to endure as she does not do well around drunk people and is basically friendless as result of that.

So as a parent I have purchased both help and alcohol for my children. After the trial, I however question myself whether I should have settled with the alcohol and advised my youngest child to lower his ambitions and choose just letting time pass working as a SOSU-helper serving the sick and elderlies and people in Denmark choose a line of work when they cannot make it in other lines of businesses.

Am I a bad parent? Did I overstep and became a curling or helicopter parent the minute I reached out for academic aid?

South Africa was cheated today

In justice, politics on November 8, 2018 at 17:47

So this Britta Nielsen who is set to be fall guy for an poor IT-system in the department of social services in Denmark was granted extradition from South Africa to Denmark, so she can go back and be convicted for not being in the upper part of the sociale hierarchy. South Africa was fooled to help Denmark cover this case up. Normally people who commit white collar crimes in Denmark escape punishment if their social states is high enough.

Bank managers who ran their business into bankruptcy escapes punishment while ordinary people in the number of thousands have lost their job.

The IT-company Atea was a criminal organization according to the courts but they are still able to partipate in tenders about delivery of IT-equipment to the public offices in Denmark and the secret money men who owns not only Atea but a number of IT-firms managed to remain hidden in the dark outside the spotlight of the authorities.

Both the banks Nordea and Danske Bank laundered money from Russia and aided people to hide their money in Panama instead of paying taxes. They are free to operate by sacrificing some low-level employees and when the bank managers in the top quit to take responsability they get a huge salary for their stage performance.

Who did Britta cover for? That is the question. They money she stole was the politicians play-money. If you have a social project of some kind and you befriend the politicians in power, you can get granted some of the money. Where the money is supposed to end up is not public information. Why a certain project was favored over another is not public information. A small group of politicians hand out millions of DKK and the public get no insight in why and how they decide.

She wanted to get home to get protection. There are people in Denmark who knew and did not care because the money was dirty and result of what you will call corruption in other countries.

Most Danes do not care if she gets convicted. She worked as a public servant on a lower level. There was no judge position in a local court waiting for her – a position public servicemen are rewarded with when they have done good (and know some politicians).

What the Danes want is the system to change. When whatever project gets money paid by the ordinary citizens, the public should know why? It should be public matter whether one project gets the money over another. It should be about who we as tax-payers like most – not who knows a certain politician best.

Will this case change anything – not in a million years.

Main suspect in Danish fraud case to leave South Africa

Denmark isolates Europe

In justice on September 29, 2018 at 04:48

The Danish police has blocked the access to both the bridge over the Great Belt and the Oresund Bridge to Sweden. Later they demanded that the ferries to both Germany and Sweden should stop their activities. An alleged crime the police will not inform the public about seems to be the reason.

Later the police raided an apartment on Vesterbro in Copenhagen. It seems that the neighborhood is not as transformed as the investors of new apartment buildings in the Carlberg area wants us to believe that it has been. It used to be for ordinary people and for tourists coming to see and buy women for social activities. There have been cases where ordinary people and businesses have been forced out, so rich people could move in.

A farm on the island of Fyen was also raided.

Maybe it is a real crime the police investigate, maybe it is the start of political reforms where the influence the ordinary citizens have on politics will be reduced. We do not know and do no longer care now where the Danish parliament has outsourced a large number of decisions they should make to the European Union.

For whatever reason Europe is now isolated.

Perhaps it is a necessary step. For the ordinary Dane it does not pose a problem. A growing number of Danes choose not to leave their hometown for education and career making the choice of working with the few available options you find outside the 5 Danish cities out in the wasteland called “The Rotten Banana“. We are seeing a reduced number of commuters, The few tourists who were bothered by the police just have to live with the actions of the police.

Also construction of the Danish border fence will continue despite protests from the European Union with the illness as excuse. Perhaps all these activities will bring an end to the massive numbers of shooting incidents which have forced several schools in Copenhagen not to have activities like meetings in the evening. The public life in parts of Copenhagen is now reduced like Sarajevo in the 1990’s. None want to be on the streets risking being a victim for a random shooting. Many Danes wanted a wall instead of the fence but Danevirke is now located down in Germany so we had to start over and it was costly, so a fence it became.

Something rotten in Denmark – Yes. The police interferes in local businesses causing disruption

In justice on August 16, 2018 at 17:05

For many years busses in Denmark has to go through mandatory audit every year, sometime more often depending of their tasks. Standard procedure is that the busdriver takes the bus for a short drive where he employs the brakes so many times that the brakes are warmed up. Then he drives to a privat owned technical inspection center which does the audit. In Denmark the state was forced to give the inspection of vehicles to private operators due to a rule from the European Union.

The problem with this procedure is that the police now stops busses on the street with cold brakes. It means that the police determine that the busses are illegal while many of them have just passed an inspection.

Today I read in the news that the police has checked 45 busses who is used as replacement for comuter trains operating between Copenhagen and the town of Frederikssund. The busses have been operating since May and they should in fact stop working next week when the trains can run again after the tracks were repaired. 20 of the busses were banned from further driving.

It sounds to me like the message is politically. If it was a question about security, they would have checked the busses back in May when they started to drive on the busy roads.

This summer the police have stopped a number of busses at sports events and music events. Every time a high number of busses were banned. In my mind it is a system error and the police is only interested in showing the public how important they are supposed to be.

If you stop the ordinary busses doing public transport on every road for checks, you could put Denmark to a full stop.

It is technically impossible to manage two things:

  1. Making sure that the temperature is manageable. Busses are either too hot or too cold inside depending of the time of the year. In the old days the drivers manage to cope by sipping small amounts of alcohol but now no person make a living of being a bus driver. What Trish Regan never understood is that 50 percent of the reason while Denmark have a smaller percentage of people being unemployed is that people are forced to work. It is called flex-jobs and work-environment testing where people work for their unemployment benefit or to a lower salary compared with their co-worker without earning the right to vacation. Bus drivers are leftovers from other businesses being moved by case workers to work as bus-drivers.
  2. Breaks on busses only work when they are warmed up, just as sport cars like in Formula One perform better when their tires have the right temperature.
  3. I hope that the justice department will intervene and stop the police from doing these public stunts. They are not improving traffic safety by doing these small spotchecks. If they really wanted to check busses they could stop all busses near the central station of Copenhagen and Aarhus and put the public transport to a full stop.

The loopholes the rich have but endangers us common people

In justice on April 27, 2018 at 06:14

In Vermont, they now release a young man who planned a school shooting. It was some kind of legal stuff, which prevented them from convicting him from his planned actions, which he had detailed in a journal, you still can find online if you search hard for it.

The problem with this case is that it took so long to take him into custody. Him parents did at an early point discover his plans but instead of going to the police, who could have helped them putting him into a state hospital where real medical expertise would have been to his disposal combined with the fact that such places are fenced off and they also have straitjackets etc. so he would have been kept there, they made the choice of a private residential treatment center when he was so close to reach the age of 18, where he was able to sign himself out.

To make matter worse, the specific treatment center was founded with help of former employees of Turn-about Ranch now known for the murder case.

Where teenagers arriving at Turn-about Ranch are forced to sit in a stone circle exposed to the heat in Utah, the students arriving at Ironwood Maine are forced to sit in a stone circle trying to keep the fire going to keep them warm in the coldness of Maine until they have made the confessions, the parents expect them to provide under the stress and pressure, they have hired the employee to provide to their children. I have no second thought using the term “torture” about this treatment. Had we treated one of the insurgents we caught back when I was in the service, we would have faced a court-martial when this treatment became known to our superiors.

But the counselors at Ironwood Maine never addressed his plans about the school shootings. How qualified were they? We know that it in fact was another former victim of Ironwood Maine who made the choice of going to the authorities. It was not the employees at Ironwood Maine. I am not saying that they knew. I do not believe that they are qualified in other aspects than bullying the teenagers they have in their custody.

Why are Maine not investigating them? We have to remember that a former employee of Ironwood Maine were arrested charged with four counts of gross sexual assault. This should have led to tighter supervision with such a residential treatment center.

In the school shooting case the teenager charged with the school shooting attempt signed himself out once he turned 18 becoming legal adult of age. The combination of him not having been treated for his real problem added with the post traumatic stress from the treatment at Ironwood Maine made him a real threat to the Fair Haven Union High School. Had a former victim of Ironwood Maine not alerted the authorities, it could have ended it with a tragedy.

What remains in this case beside giving the wannabe school shooter real treatment is to look into all those private treatment centers. Remember the Affluenza case? The luxury rehab the parents were allowed to buy for their son, did not seem to help, so now he is serving time instead. If this wannabe school shooter had poor parents, the high school students would have felt more secure. Local authorities speak of an environment of fear. Many students remain home instead of going to school while they are treatment for anxiety issues related to the threat against their school. Of course all these young people living in fear will boost both the medical industry and a lot of private treatment centers but it should not be so.

So close the loopholes allowing parents to choose out-of-state treatment places, so each state can monitor local treatment centers closely and give the local school district space to develop their own treatment systems for students who need it.

And finally address the source of how school shooters start out. Hit hard on bullying attempts. No school system in the world should allow students to be marginalized. In Denmark we have friday bars at the school where students can drive beer or wine after school, so they at least have this motive to attend school. In the Friday bars students open up and start talk, giving others an insight and understanding of their lives.

I am parent myself. No parent should ever fear or experience a school shooting at the school their children attend. It must stop now.
