Judge of Elections
Betty Scynn
Ward 56 Division 11
Tacony Academy Charter School
Philadelphia, PA 19111
Today on April 26, 2016 is Election Day here in Philadelphia, PA. to my polling place. As I walked up to the table to give them my name, Rosaura Torres Sadler. I spoke to a Betty Scynn who is a judge of election official. Ms. Scynn said I was not in the box but…a very nice lady next to her said I was in the larger ledger, I showed her my state identification but…Ms. Scynn still was not happy with the entire issue, she seem not to believe me. Ms. Scynn kept mumbling under her breath and sadly the other person told her to stop that I was in the book.
I could not tolerate her behavior towards me any further, I made it quite clear to her that I have been a register voter since I was 18. I have been voting since then. I was born and raised here. No matter what this woman did not want me to vote….Did I feel she felt I was illegal, yes. I felt that my Torres name truly bothered her. In all the years that I have been voting here in Philadelphia, I have never experienced this….My other concern is this is a Judge of Elections Official how many more Latinos who have to come across her and go through the embarrassment I went through. I did express myself to her...one of the other workers threatened to have me arrested because, I voiced my feelings about my constitutional rights to VOTE .

$40 Million Awarded to Survivor of Domestic Violence


This is amazing....As a survivor and activist against Police Officer Involved Domestic Violence/Domestic Violence.  The struggle so many continue to have trying to help other sister and brother survivors.  A Philadelphia Police Officer continues to abuse his power until this very day :(, Internal Affairs found that he did nothing wrong....They never find these abusive Police Officers accountable for their actions...

Today was another day in court. Many years ago our Legal System in the State of Pennsylvania failed me....I never allowed what happened to me would happen to my sister survivor....

As my sister survivor stood in front of the judge, and I watched with so much pride; I know now more than anything, I will never give up to help other survivors...We have several more courts dates; and I will continue to stand strong with her. This wonderful young woman is seeing the light at the end of that dark, horrible tunnel. Be bless my family and friends.
