Mike Wallace (journalist)


The family of CBS News has lost a Icon I lost a Champion of the people. That is how the population that I advocate for saw Mr. Wallace. Some years ago during an interview Mr. Wallace made public he had a mental health disorder. Which one is not important, the fact he was a consumer is all one need to know, a code word professional use to  maintain confidentiality. Mr. Wallace became a personal friend when he stood up to a direct attack by New York City TLC Police officer. Mr Wallace vehicle was stop on New York city streets and an interaction took place. Mr Wallace being Mr. Wallace was out spoken and forth right in his response to the incident. Shortly after Mike was arrested and booked for a criminal offense.


I met Mr. Wallace during New York Press club gatherings. We discuss  advocating for hidden disability in” The New Civil Rights Era” and found it’s a up hill battle. Big business and government see hidden disability complaints as part of doing business. “Just send them to legal find a remedy life goes on. No real effort to prevent such actions from taking place in real-time is taken. An apathetic approach, some firms have insurance to cover such complaints. While employed you have the right not to discuss any hidden disability. While at work if a conditions develop on their time,  management tends to feel they been taken advantage of and go on the attack mode. Now that Mr. Wallace is gone all concern parties must turn up the volume and work for a better tomorrow. RIP my friend and thanks.
