The United States is one of the only countries* in the world that allows children under 18 to be sentenced to life without parole. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International report that more than 2,000 inmates are currently serving life without parole in the United States for crimes committed when they were juveniles; in the rest of the world, there are only 12 juveniles serving the same sentence, according to figures reported to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Human Rights Watch and the ACLU estimate that in 2011, more than 95,000 young people under age 18 were held in prisons and jails. A significant number of these facilities use solitary confinement, for days, weeks…

Der dreijährige Daniel muss nicht lange nachdenken, als er gefragt wird, ob er die 30 Meter Laufstrecke lieber allein oder im Wettbewerb gegen ein anderes dreijähriges Kind rennen will. Er entscheidet sich sofort für den Wettbewerb. Wenn er den gewinnt, bekommt er doppelt so viele Geschenke, etwa Smarties, Äpfel oder Abziehbildchen, als wenn er allein rennt. Daniel ist auch fest davon überzeugt, dass er gewinnen wird, noch bevor das Rennen losgeht. Für die dreijährige Sophie ist die Entscheidung schwieriger. Beim individuellen Rennen einen Tag zuvor war sie zwar die Schnellste, sie entscheidet sich heute aber dennoch dafür, lieber allein zu laufen. …

Idaho Christian faith healers — 12 kids have died since 2011, and nobody’s doing anything about it

Arturo Garcia

Despite the deaths of least 12 children from “faith healing” Christian families in their state, lawmakers and public officials in Idaho have refused to challenge a state law providing a religious exemption from manslaughter and murder charges, Vocativ reported.

The childrens’ families belonged to a Pentecostal group known as the Followers of Christ, which punishes members who seek medical care by shunning them from their church. According to state law, parents can substitute prayer as a form of treatment. The religious exemption covers manslaughter, capital murder and negligent homicide charges, but cannot be cited if a parent uses any other form of treatment on top of praying for the child.

“If the parent combines prayer with orange juice or a cool…

Retired German judge Thomas Walther has been in Toronto and Montreal for the past two weeks interviewing Hungarian-Canadian Auschwitz survivors as co-plaintiffs in an attempt to put former SS sergeant Oskar Groening behind bars.
Thomas Walther is talking about Auschwitz, and numbers, and how the statistics of the Holocaust exceed imagination. What does it mean, for example, to deport 437,000 Hungarian Jews to Auschwitz in the span of 57 days in the spring and early summer of 1944? What does it mean to murder them at a rate of 3.5 Jews per minute, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so that by the end of the 57th day…

Drowning is one of the 10 leading causes of death for children and young people across the world, a World Health Organization (WHO) report reveals.

The global survey suggests it claims more than 372,000 lives each year – with children under five most at risk.

WHO officials say it is a hidden childhood killer, leading to more deaths among under-15s than tuberculosis or measles in 2012.

They say more needs to be done to tackle this preventable loss of life.
