Call for patients 'charter of rights'

People with learning difficulties who are placed in care need "a charter of rights" to protect them, a charity chief has said.

Sir Stephen Bubb, chief executive of the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations wants more to be done to protect patients after staff at Winterbourne View care home were filmed abusing residents. Six workers were later jailed for ill-treatment and neglect.

We urge immediate action, to close all Winterbourne-style institutions and ramp up community provision. We need a new charter of rights to empower people with learning disabilities and their families, and give them the right to challenge the system.

We need that system to have the courage to act on these recommendations, and not to promise another false dawn. The time for talk is over. It's time for people with learning disabilities or autism and their families to be put first.

Officer in Ferguson shooting 'feared for his life'

Rioting broke out in Ferguson last night after a Grand Jury announced it would not be pressing charges against Wilson.

The police officer who fatally shot unarmed teenager Michael Brown said he "feared for his life" and was acting in self defence.

Darren Wilson told ABC News his conscience was clear over the killing of 17-year-old Brown in Ferguson, Missorui on August 9 this year. He admitted the shooting was the first time he had used his gun as a police officer. The 28-year-old said he was terrified of Brown, who he claims charged at him after an altercation in the middle of the road.

I just felt the immense power that he had. And then the way I've described it is it was like a five-year-old holding on to Hulk Hogan [the professional wrestler]. That's just how big this man was.
