Push for Background Checks for NJ EMS Heats Up



TRENTON — Robert Melia Jr.’s arrest in April 2008 drew international headlines, and for good reason: He was a police officer indicted on charges of sexually assaulting three young girls, and engaging in a sex act with several cows.


But when the Moorestown cop renewed his certification as an emergency medical technician that fall, he checked "no" in the box asking whether he had ever been charged with a crime, and nobody questioned it. It took another two years before the health department suspended EMT privileges for Melia, who was convicted of sexual abuse and other crimes four months ago. And the state’s action came only after a member of the public alerted officials. Read More.....

One Man's Fight For Grieving Parents



(CNN) -- Barry Kluger was playing a round of golf with a friend on April 6, 2001, when he received news of the kind every parent fears: His 18-year-old daughter, Erica, had been in a car crash.


"What they didn't tell me is she'd been dead an hour," said Kluger of Scottsdale, Arizona. Twenty minutes after receiving the call, Kluger was at the emergency room talking to a grief counselor.


"A few weeks later, I went to thank the firemen who tried to save her," he said. "They told me she never knew what hit her."


Kluger said he cannot begin to imagine the pain that the loved ones of the victims from Friday's Colorado theater mass shooting are experiencing. Read More.....
