‘I asked to go to jail, rather than stay homeless’ “THERE ARE LIVES; UNBEARABLE FOR ONE PERSON, sickness, poverty, mental illness, isolation – THOSE WE MUST HELP NOT JAILING!



‘I asked to go to jail, rather than stay homeless’

Bradley’s anti-social behaviour order prevents him from “loitering” near businesses
Banned from begging and sleeping in shop doorways in Middlesbrough, Bradley Grimes asked the judge in court to send him to prison rather than leave him homeless. What effect did it have?
“All they’ve done is placed an anti-social behaviour order on me to try and stop me from begging. But I have to in order to survive,” Bradley Grimes tells the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme.
He became homeless after leaving the care system aged 17.
With autism and, in his own words, the mental age of a “young child”, he was unable to find work and frequently turned to begging – asking passers-by for food and money at the side of a busy street.
But this led to Middlesbrough Council giving him an anti-social behaviour order, or Asbo.
It came with a condition banning him from “loitering” outside business premises.
Bradley says it prevented him from “basically sitting outside a shop” and sleeping in doorways for warmth, and meant he was continually arrested.
“CCTV picks you up and they dispatch either the police or street wardens. If police come, you’re arrested,” explains Bradley, who’s now 23.
He says he attracted the authorities’ attention for sitting rested against a bus stop.

Bradley says he was once arrested while sitting rested against this bus stop
“It got to the stage where they were locking me up once or twice a day, for a period of a few months.
“I was in [prison] pretty much all weekend, near enough every weekend.
“I can’t even sit on a public bench without being locked up. I have to keep moving.”
Frustrated at his situation, he decided to seek help – albeit in an unusual form.
When in court, charged with breaching a four-month suspended jail sentence – something he admitted to doing – he asked the judge to send him to prison.

This is where Bradley says he often used to sleep, just off the side of a busy road
He hoped it would pave the way to him being found suitable accommodation.
“That’s the last option I had, that I could think of,” he explains.
The judge was sympathetic, and was reported in October this year as saying that “essentially we are locking up a homeless man for being homeless.
“I want him housed somewhere so that his welfare can be looked after.
“It is not good enough for the authorities to turn around and say that it is somebody else’s problem.
“If I were to let you go today the chances are that you would be sitting on a seat or sleeping in a shop doorway and you will be locked up again.”
By November, Bradley was released – with supported accommodation made available.
He had lived in the same building previously, but says he was told to leave after cannabis was found in his room.
Bradley has also had problems with Class A drugs, which he says he used “to take the pain away”.
This time he says he is determined to live clean, and has avoided drugs since his release.
‘Impossible to cope’
Bradley says life can still be tough. In fact, he believes that because of his autism, it was simpler in prison.
“You don’t have to worry about anything in [jail].
“[Whereas on the outside] it’s impossible for me to cope on my own, because I’m bad with things like budget and money.”
When Bradley left prison in Durham, he had just £17 to his name – most of which he used for the train journey back to Middlesbrough.
He has now applied for benefits, which he is waiting to receive, but says his lack of funds over time has had a significant impact on his health.
Bradley has a brain tumour – and suffers with epilepsy and a heart murmur – but says he cannot afford to travel to the specialist cancer centre in Newcastle for treatment…….http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-42057173#_=_

Illegal alien raped/impregnated 14-year-old stepdaughter for anchor baby


Fellowship of the Minds

It gets worse: The mother of the stepdaughter knew about the sexual assaults and DID NOTHING.

From Illegal Alien Crime Report: MILWAUKEE, WI (The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel) – As an undocumented immigrant illegal alien, Horacio Alvarado thought if he could show he was the father of a newborn American citizen, he would be allowed to remain in the United States himself.

But the paternity test ultimately resulted in more severe charges for Alvarado because the mother of the child was only 15 and was his stepdaughter, according to a criminal complaint.

Alvarado, 32, now faces three felonies for what investigators say were several years of sustained sexual assaults, assaults his wife later knew about yet did nothing to prevent, according to the complaint.

Alvarado is charged with first-degree sexual assault, resulting in pregnancy, repeated sexual assault of a child and incest. He pleaded not guilty at…
