This is one time that I am happy to be proven wrong! There was a great deal of “spirited debate” about Governor O’Malley’s response to Emma’s petition on Change.org. Some of us were disappointed that he only committed to one of the two requests: training, but not an independent investigation. Some thought “training” was meant to placate a grieving family – a political move more than a real solution. Some even thought training would be dangerous and serve to further stigmatize our loved ones.

I for one, was more hopeful about the Commission once I heard who was going to be at the helm. If anyone could take the opportunity and make the best of it – it was Tim Shriver.
