Shattered Lives: Campus Safety

  Going away to college is a time in a young persons’ life that should be about discovery, learning, and making lifelong friends. However, as parents send their children away from home, some for the very first time, there is even more to be anxious about, especially their safety on campus. According to the Justice Department, “1 in 5 women will be a victim of rape or attempted rape.” When these incidents occur on campus property they are in the jurisdiction of campus police, and many victims do not report, or are discouraged to report by school administrators. With sexual assaults, active shooters, and luring into human trafficking from our college campuses, the college experience has changed. Guest for the hour on Shattered Lives Radio S.

In this video Laura Dunn and S. Daniel Carter discuss the prevention efforts institutions of higher education must take; …

The museum is located at 300 S Tulane, Oak Ridge, TN. Scandal in the Secret City Eastern Tennessee is an area filled with the beauty of the Great Smokey Mountains, clear creeks, and vibrant cities like Knoxville and Chattanooga. In 1942 the US Government selected a rural area between the ridges to create the “Secret City,” Oak Ridge. The location was quickly built to develop materials for the Manhattan Project and the purification of uranium for use in the bomb that eventually fell on Hiroshima. The population rose from around 3,000 to 75,000 by 1945 as workers were recruited for employment not knowing what the specifics of their jobs would be, and not knowing where they were going. Known as the Secret City, Oak Ridge never appeared on any maps, hidden in plain view from the rest of the world. The main character in Diane Fanning’s SCANDAL …

Shattered Lives: Victim Impact Statement and Sentencing

One of the remaining avenues for crime victims to have a voice within the courts is through victim impact statements. Victim impact statements are usually read after trial and during the sentencing phase as a way to get into the record the impact of the crime on the victims, their friends and families. Shattered Lives Radio talks with two champions of victims’ rights, Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley and attorney Michelle S. Cruz, who is serving as this week’s co-host. Both women have used their skills and experience to step into the gap for victims of crime through their advocacy and legislative positions. Realizing that crime victims often are in trauma, even years after the crime, they use their understanding of the justice system to pave a smoother path. Host, Donna Gore, offers her personal knowledge of the subject as well as bringing something new to the table, a Victim Impact Assistance Service where crime victims can take advantage of her vast talent at a time when their lives are in chaos. Nancy O’Malley Using her position as the …
