KARLA BRADA MURDER VICTIM BY AA MEMBER Click on to view the Karla Brada Video Story-




I am Monica Richardson, the Founder of a grass roots movement to Make AA Safer. We took direct action to do so, but at every level Alcoholics Anonymous, including at the District and Southern California Area levels and the AA World Headquarters in NYC, voted to not do anything about Safety in Meetings.

The problem is that there are 3rd level sex offenders and violent criminals being sent to AA by the courts. AA World Headquarters is aware of this practice. I have become an activist, and an advocate for victims who have been harmed in AA. This campaign is for Karla Brada and her family (Jaraslava and Hector Mendez) and her sister Sasha Mendez, to continue with the Lawsuit and case that will bring justice for Karla. What We Need & What You Get We are asking for $8,000.00 to continue the current lawsuit. The money you give is going to the Lawyers.


If you or someone you know has been harmed you can join us in activism that we plan to take part in outside Superior Courts in Los Angeles. Even if we don’t reach our goal, which I believe we will, the money is going to legal fees. The Impact We know that Karla is not the first murder. Kristine and Saundra Cass were murdered in Hawaii in August of 2010 by Claybourne Connelly who also was sentenced to AA as part of a plea deal. We intend to change the laws. You can spread the word by telling your Doctor, Therapist, Teachers, Lawyers, Fireman and Police Officers and talking at your local PTA, informing them what is going on in the rooms of AA. We are currently creating literature to educate the public on the other choices for help with alcohol abuse problems.

Alcoholics Anonymous World Services and Santa Clarita Alcoholics Anonymous has been sued by the parents of murder victim Karla Brada. Parents Accuse AA of Harboring a Predator Grieving parents say in court that their daughter was murdered by her sociopathic addict boyfriend because Alcoholics Anonymous concealed his history of domestic violence. ” The Mendezes say that AA showed a “reckless disregard for, and deliberate indifference … to the safety and security of victims attending AA meetings who are repeatedly preyed on at these meetings by financial, violent, and sexual predators like Earle.” AA has known for years that meetings “are repeatedly used by financial, sexual, and violent predators as a means to locate victims,” according to the lawsuit in Superior Court. But nevertheless the organization has no “specific policies and guidelines concerning conduct of so-called ‘sponsors’” and does little to supervise them.”

LOS ANGELES (CN) – Grieving parents say in court that their daughter was murdered by her sociopathic addict boyfriend because Alcoholics Anonymous concealed his history of domestic violence. Eric Allen Earle allegedly strangled 31-year-old Karla Brada to death on Aug. 31, 2011, after Brada asked him to move out of her condo in Santa Clarita. After the murder, Earle reportedly spent the night sleeping next to Brada and called the authorities when he found her unresponsive in the morning. Brada’s parents, Hector Mendez and Jaroslava Mendez, say Earle had been jailed for beating Brada just before the murder. His friends, Patrick and Joanne Frye, allegedly coerced Brada into bailing him out. Brada reportedly dropped the charges against Earle, and authorities were unable to prosecute him, according to the Los Angeles Times. The Mendezes say that the Frys conspired “to aid and assist Earle in financially and physically abusing” and “ultimately murdering” Brada. They also sued two attorneys who allegedly represented the Earle, saying those individuals and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department knew of Earle’s violent past and could have prevented their daughter’s untimely death. Brada “suffered horribly” before she died, according to the complaint. An autopsy report allegedly revealed that Brada had more than 30 cuts and bruises on her body.

Patrick Fry and Earle may have done jail time together, Fry sponsored Earle at the Santa Clarita AA that they both attended, according to the complaint. “Fry immediately violated the few rules AA has by serving as a ‘sponsor’ for a female, Karla,” the 26-page complaint states. “He also violated an AA rule by meeting at the same time with both Earle and Karla right at the time that Earle had severely beaten Karla and had been arrested for possible domestic violence.” The Mendezes say that AA showed a “reckless disregard for, and deliberate indifference … to the safety and security of victims attending AA meetings who are repeatedly preyed on at these meetings by financial, violent, and sexual predators like Earle.”


AA has known for years that meetings “are repeatedly used by financial, sexual, and violent predators as a means to locate victims,” according to the lawsuit in Superior Court. But nevertheless the organization has no “specific policies and guidelines concerning conduct of so-called ‘sponsors’” and does little to supervise them. Earle was formally charged for the murder of Brada in January 2011, almost three months after the autopsy report, the Mendezes say. “AA is so lax that as soon as Earle murdered Karla he took up with another woman whom he met at AA, [nonparty] Amy Porter (‘Porter’) who is now being financially exploited by Earle,” the complaint states. “Porter is financing Earle’s legal defense on the charge of Karla’s murder. Earle becomes quickly ‘engaged’ with his victims and proposes marriage although on information and belief he has never obtained a judgment of dissolution from his wife.”


After Brada’s death, attorney Carey Curuso used $2,000 Brada had paid the lawyer to defend Earle against charges that he kicked in a window on a sheriff’s patrol car, the parents say.

The Mendezes sued Earle; the Frys; Curoso; Santa Clarita Alcoholics Anonymous; Alcoholics Anonymous World Services; the County of Los Angeles; and detectives Eduardo Hernandez, Juan Carrillo, Raymond Lugo and Joe Ramirez. David Kestenbaum, an attorney who represented Earle against domestic violence charges against Brada, is also named as a defendant. The couple seeks punitive damages for wrongful death, conversion of money and property, professional negligence, violation of equal protection rights under the 14th Amendment, Monell violation, and Bane Act violation. They are represented by Patricia Barry.


MURDER IN THE ROOMS

By The Fix.

“What if they confessed to cold-blooded murder? When 20-year-old Bob Ryder came to his sponsor, Floyd Nadeau, with something on his conscience, Nadeau surely had no idea that what he was about to hear would have a lasting impact on both men’s lives.

There have been many high profile cases of murder prosecutions hinging on admissions of guilt coming to light during AA meetings. This one was among the most biizarre.

According to Nadeu, Ryder confessed that he had been getting high with a prostitute at his home in Lewiston, Maine when the prostitute started to “irritate him” by constantly complaining about her tough life. The final straw came when Ryder allegedly caught the woman rifling through his wallet. According to Nadeu, Ryder said that he grabbed the nearest thing to hand—a wooden clock—and viciously beat his victim to death with it before concealing the body in the basement of his home.

Nadeu later told authorities that at first he was highly skeptical that Ryder had murdered anyone. His sponsee, after all, had a history of mental problems, which had led to his being discharged from the marines.But to prove he was telling the truth, Ryder supposedly took Nadeu down into the basement and showed him the decomposing corpse. Still, it would be over two weeks before Nadeu went to the police; when questioned on this seemingly inexplicable delay, Nadeu claimed that he was worried about violating AA’s teachings on confidentiality. ”

"The alcoholic is like a tornado roaring his way through the lives of others.  Hearts are broken.  Sweet relationships are dead.   Affections have been uprooted.  Selfish and inconsiderate habits have kept the home in turmoil.  We feel a man is unthinking when he says that sobriety is enough.  He is like >the farmer who came up out of his cyclone cellar to find his home ruined.  To his wife, he remarked, "Don't see anything the matter here, Ma.  Ain't it grand the wind stopped blowin'?"  --  "Alcoholics Anonymous" (AA's Big Book) Chapter 6, 'Into Action,' pg. 82



The fellowship of A.A. and N.A. have been responsible for suicides, murder, and other unsavory acts and need to start taking responsibility for their actions.
