Jim Loach's debut film deals with child abuse

Jim Loach's debut film deals with child abuse
By ALESSANDRA RIZZO, Associated Press – Sun Oct 31, 12:01 pm ET

ROME- The first feature film by Jim Loach looks at the true story of the deportation of thousands of children from Britain to Australia and the abuse they suffered. The director said he sees it as a tale of survival and the indomitable human spirit.

Loach, English director Ken Loach's son, told The Associated Press on Sunday that he was fascinated by the woman who uncovered the scandal and is at the center of the movie: a social worker who worked doggedly to reunite families and bring authorities to account. He became fascinated by the personalities of the former child migrants, some of whom he met, and questions of identity.

Ultimately, he felt the story needed to be told.

"The story itself was shocking and appalling and amazing," Loach said at the Rome film festival, where "Oranges and Sunshine" was presented. "We couldn't believe that it had happened and we were amazed that so little had been said about it."

Under the program, between 1920 to 1960s, an estimated 150,000 British children were sent to Australia and other distant colonies. The program was intended to ease pressure on British social services and provide the children with a fresh start ("oranges and sunshine"), but many of them ended up in institutions where they were physically and sexually abused, or were sent to work as farm laborers.  FULL STORY

This certainly happened here too-
White Children were the FIRST Slaves

Don Jordan and Michael Walsh are the English authors of White Cargo: The Forgotten History of Britain’s White Slaves in America (New York, New York University Press, 2008)

There, you will learn that those white “indentured servants” were in fact slaves just as much as the blacks, enslaved in conditions just as bad, and that white slaves were imported into this country almost as long as blacks.  Indeed, the first slaves imported into the American colonies were 100 white children unaccompanied by parents. They arrived during Easter, 1619, four months before the arrival of a much more infamous shipment of black slaves. (P. 76)

Sometimes, the slavers literally tore children from the arms of their parents. White Cargo tells us: “. . . No child from either the town or the surrounding countryside seems to have been safe from the merchants’ agents. They operated openly and with impunity. When parents who had lost their children came looking for them in the town, their elation at finding them still incarcerated awaiting embarkation was short lived on their discovery that they were powerless to bring their children home. . . .” (Pp. 237-38)

The kidnappers were paying off the local judges. Most parents could not afford to pay for the food their kiddos had consumed while prisoners. That’s right! The parents had to pay for that. They had to watch in impotent horror as their children were marched aboard slave ships and sent away to the colonies forever.

Sounds exactly like Children's "Protective" "Services" doesn't it?

DSS decisions shameful
By Issac Bailey - ibailey@thesunnews.com

South Carolina- Karen Munsey worked as an investigator and treatment worker for Horry County Child Protection Services, an arm of the S.C. Department of Social Services.

She worked as a school psychologist in several South Carolina schools.

She's certified in child protective service and permanency planning.

She has a BA in psychology from Coastal Carolina University, a master's and education specialist degree from the Citadel and worked as a probation counselor with the Department of Youth Service, now known as the S.C. Department of Juvenile Justice.

And yet, when she came across a poor father desperately trying to save his daughter from being sexually abused during court-ordered visits after an ugly custody fight, she felt helpless.

"With all that experience, I could not maneuver that system," she said. "Everything that we were able to accomplish was long, tedious and much harder than it ever should have been. It was all-consuming and totally draining. To this day, I cannot imagine the feelings and frustrations [that father] must have felt when all he wanted to do was ensure his child would not continue to be molested."

That's why Munsey is convinced child protective services needs to be taken away from the over-stressed DSS and handled by law enforcement.

"When I resigned from DSS, I did confront the fact that it was a facade that children were being protected," she said.

The over-worked DSS case workers, who sometimes put their lives in danger and make difficult, gut-wrenching decisions involving flawed families, are not the problem, Munsey said.

There are "highly efficient, motivated and dedicated" DSS workers who have saved countless kids from great harm, or prevented further harm, as well as some who "are, frankly, embezzling a paycheck."

"The problem is the system itself," she said.

"Child protective services can never be fixed in its present state. The real issue is that the system is broken and children pay and pay dearly," Munsey said. "This should be a political issue which makes or breaks a candidacy, but it is rarely if ever an issue presented in local or national campaigns. The reality is that our society is turning a blind eye and trusting that our children and the issues of their safety are designated and handled adequately by a very efficient system when it has been designed to be an antiquated and shattered system."  FULL STORY

Girls now reaching puberty at age nine

Girls now reaching puberty at age nine, thanks to chemicals in the food supply
Saturday, October 30, 2010 by: David Gutierrez, staff writer

(NaturalNews) The average age of puberty in girls is now nine, in a phenomenon increasingly being blamed on rising obesity and exposure to hormone-disrupting pollutants in the food supply.

The study was conducted in 2006 by researchers from the world-renowned Department of Growth and Reproduction at University Hospital in Copenhagen, Denmark. The researchers found that among 1,000 girls, the average age of breast development was nine years and 10 months, a full year earlier than when a similar study was conducted in 1991.

"We were very surprised that there had been such a change in a period of just 15 years," researcher Anders Juul said.

....Early puberty can be hard on children who are mature physically but still young emotionally, experts warn.

"All the things we experience as teenagers are difficult enough to cope with, but when it happens at 10 or 11 it is much worse," Stanhope said. "These children are also at a much higher risk of being sexually abused, because it is hard for some adults to understand and behave appropriately towards them."

A girl interviewed anonymously by the Times of London said her early development subjected her to teasing at school.

...."If girls mature early, they run into teenage problems at an early age and they're more prone to diseases later on," Juul said. "We should be worried about this regardless of what we think the underlying reasons might be. It's a clear sign that something is affecting our children, whether it's junk food, environmental chemicals or lack of physical activity."

"We don't know if this is the result of better nutrition or environmental factors, but it does create social problems for girls who are
already living in a sexualized society," agreed Richard Sharpe, head of the human reproductive sciences unit for the United Kingdom's Medical Research Council.  FULL STORY

The sexualized society is the result of the "research" of Dr. Alfred Kinsey, considered to be "the father of the sexual revolution."  Our society has been dealing with all of these issues SCHIZOPHRENICALLY ever since.

CPS abuse claims spur lawsuit by victim

CPS abuse claims spur lawsuit by victim
October 30, 2010 12:00:00 AM
By Ryan McCarthy/Appeal-Democrat

The man falsely told he faced sexual molestation allegations and then assisted law enforcement in a sting that ended with the arrest of Child Protective Services worker Yolanda Fryson is suing her and Yuba County.

Roseville resident Christopher Lindsay said that Fryson told him she could make the charges go away by paying her $10,000. Fryson, 43, was arrested two years ago after a taped sting that law enforcement said ended with her accepting the bribe money officers provided Lindsay.

Lindsay states after Fryson first contacted him that he couldn't go home or to work until he was able to prove that the allegations were false.

"Plaintiff knew that he was innocent but here there was a county worker from Yuba CPS," Lindsay recounted, "alleging these horrible things."

He said he was unable to sleep, started drinking heavily and displayed mood swings toward loves ones. Lindsay, in the suit field Oct. 21 in federal court in Sacramento, said he just lost interest in everything, could not focus at work "and would just stare at his computer monitor all day long."1

Child Protective Services failed to adequately supervise Fryson, according to the suit.

Russ Brown, spokesman for Yuba County, said, "We are unable to comment because this matter is in litigation."2

Lindsay declined to comment on his legal filing until the criminal case against Fryson concludes in Placer County Superior Court. Jurors heard closing arguments Thursday and began deliberations Friday.

Deputy District Attorney Stephanie Macumber included in her closing argument a reference to how Lindsay said he'd been dealing with Fryson's actions for two years. "These false allegations rocked his world in ways you can't imagine unless you're there,"3 Macumber said.

Justin Mixon, the defense attorney representing Fryson, contends she's a victim of law enforcement entrapment and that the matter "became about money when the government got involved."4

But Mixon also told jurors that if he were Fryson, he'd apologize to Lindsay for the molestation allegations that were "totally false."

"She did a bad thing," he said. "She shouldn't have accused this man."5

"It was wrong," Mixon added. "It was absolutely wrong."

1- God knows a bunch of us have been there.  Here I am, almost eleven years later, not exactly staring at my computer screen.  I am still madder than HELL, and I won't be happy until this entire TYRANNICAL system is defanged and shut down.

2- These pukes wouldn't have anything to say anyway.

3-

4- Utterly Lame.

5- Bad thing, wrong, absolutely wrong means it is a Federal Capital Crime.  Which means these people are earning the DEATH PENALTY   according to the Federal Law.

Stark realities of foster "care"

Stark realities of foster "care" revealed by federal judge in Nevada
California's Children

The Oakland-based National Center for Youth Law was the loser in federal court in Las Vegas on Thursday when US District Judge Robert C. Jones dismissed a class-action lawsuit against the Nevada Dept. of Health and Human Service's director, Michael Willden; Clark County manager, Virginia Valentine; and county Dept. of Family Services director, Tom Morton, at left. The lawsuit sought class action status for three subgroups among the county's 3,600 foster children and monetary damages for the 13 foster children named as plaintiffs.

Responding to the complaints, the Judge Jones's 31-page ruling noted [emphases ours]:

In his decision, Jones ruled that the defendants had "qualified immunity" from most of the claims in the lawsuit. Under federal law, government officials have such immunity if their actions did not violate "clearly established" constitutional rights.1

The lawsuit alleged the officials did not provide adequate medical, dental and mental health care for foster children. Jones wrote that the state is required only to provide "basic human needs" to children under its care and that anything else beyond that was not a "clearly established" right.2

The lawsuit also alleged the county and state acted with "deliberate indifference" to obvious dangers when they placed children in dangerous foster homes. But under federal law, Jones ruled, officials cannot be held liable unless their actions created or increased the danger for the children, not merely exposed them to dangers that already existed....3FULL STORY

1- Oh they are clearly established alright.  This judge doesn't think American kids have any rights other than their "Best Interest right".

2- So exactly WHAT "standards" are real parents held to?

3- This is a "justice" system?

Perhaps judge Jones didn't get the directive-

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A north Florida mother has pleaded guilty to shaking her baby to death after the boy's crying interrupted her game on Facebook.

Alexandra V. Tobias pleaded guilty to second-degree murder on Wednesday and remains jailed.

The Florida Times-Union reports that she told investigators she was angered because the boy was crying while she was playing the game FarmVille.

The paper also reports that she told investigators she shook the boy, smoked a cigarette to compose herself and then shook him again.

She will be sentenced in December. State guidelines call for 25 to 50 years, but a prosecutor said it could be shorter than that.

I only recently started promoting AFRA at Facebook.  It does seem like way too many people were acting mesmerized by Farmville.

Judge says marijuana in home not sufficient evidence to prove neglect of child

Judge says marijuana in home not sufficient evidence to prove neglect of child

In the Matter of Isaiah D., Bronx County Family Court Judge, Jeanette Ruiz, has ruled that the presence of marijuana in a house is not sufficient evidence alone to prove a prima facie case of child neglect.

New York City Children's Services had brought a petition of neglect against Isaiah's mother and father, after police found marijuana in their apartment. The mother agreed to an ACOD, while the father decided to fight the petition in court.

According to Judge Ruiz, Children's Services "presented no evidence the marijuana seized in the home belonged to R[espondent] F[ather] or that he was even aware there was marijuana in the bathroom cabinet. The only evidence Petitioner presented was that both parents were arrested at the time the drugs were seized in the home."

Judge Ruiz stated that Children's Services only established the possibility of danger to the child--the child was not in imminent danger, the standard required for proving neglectFULL STORY

Vaccine Awareness Week

Vaccine Awareness Week: 
November 1 -- November 6, 2010

Mercola.com and the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) are dedicating the first week of November as Vaccine Awareness Week!

In a lengthy collaborative effort to raise public awareness about important vaccination issues, Dr. Joseph Mercola and NVIC will publish a series of articles and interviews on vaccine topics of interest to Mercola.com newsletter subscribers and NVIC Vaccine E-newsletter readers.

Vaccine Awareness Week arose from the following shared goals:

  • Raising public awareness about the need to take an active role in changing vaccine policy
  • Prevention of vaccine injuries and deaths
  • Protection of informed consent—defending your legal rights to make voluntary vaccination choices for your and your family
  • Raising funds for NVIC, a non-profit charity that has been working since 1982 to educate the public about vaccination

Vaccine Awareness Week, hosted by Mercola.com and NVIC, follows a month-long vaccine awareness effort in October that was recently announced on Facebook by parents highlighting Gardasil vaccine risks.

Don't sit this one out! We've got them "on the run."

Tell everyone. Tell your friends, your family. With a little bit of effort, you can make significant strides toward preserving your freedom to make VOLUNTARY health decisions affecting you and your children's future.

Florida- A new agency is poised to take over the child-welfare system that serves thousands of kids, families, foster parents and social workers in Orange and Osceola counties.

This week, the state's Department of Children and Families selected the nonprofit Community Based Care of Seminole to run operations in the two counties — including adoptions, foster care, child-abuse prevention efforts and working with troubled families that are under a judge's supervision.

The counties have some of the highest child-abuse rates in the nation.

"This is a big deal for the community," said John Cooper, director of DCF's Central Region. "This is a contract worth over $200 million for four years, and it could significantly shape the way we do business

Case: Texas agency didn't stop foster home abuse

ELKHART, Texas- The state agency that oversees foster care in Texas continually dismissed allegations of abuse at a home that took in dozens of children before the same charges led to a successful criminal prosecution. 

Court records show how the Department of Family and Protective Services ruled out allegations of sex abuse against foster parent James Vick on three occasions before he pleaded guilty to 18 counts of indecency with a child and was sentenced to 20 years in prison last year. 

Foster care experts say the mounting allegations, even if unproven, should have been a red flag. The district attorney who prosecuted the case says it shows how agency investigations are flawed. 

An agency spokesman says mistakes were made, but they aren't indicative of a larger problem.

Wow.  That agency spokesman is a real spin doctor.  This is a WORLD WIDE problem with CPS.

One of the Worst Parenting Mistakes You Can Make
Posted By Dr. Mercola | October 27 2010

No matter how physically active a child is, time spent in front of the computer or television screen is associated with psychological problems.

In other words, children can't make up for TV time by spending extra hours exercising.

The findings also suggest that the way children spend their sedentary time, in addition to how much time they spend being sedentary in the first place, matters for their mental health.

According to Live Science:

"... [R]esearchers asked 1,013 British 10- and 11-year-olds how much time each day they spent in front of a computer or TV. The children also wore accelerometers around their waists for a week to track their physical activity and sedentary time ...

The study found that ... more than two hours a day in front of a TV or computer was associated with more emotional and behavioral difficulties."

CPS not equipped to deal with truancy

Report says child protective services not equipped to deal with truancy

On October 25, the New York State Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) released “Getting Teenagers Back to School: Rethinking New York State’s Response to Chronic Absence,” a policy brief researched and written for the agency by the Vera Institute of Justice in partnership with Casey Family Programs.

This policy brief proposes that the state develop a new non-punitive approach to teenage absenteeism that is rooted in research on adolescent behavior and school engagement. The brief found that the child protective system—the network of state and local agencies that handle allegations of child abuse and neglect—is not well equipped to help teenagers improve their school attendance. At times, it can make matters worse.

OCFS Commissioner Gladys CarriĆ³n said, “The report shows that the majority of allegations of educational neglect in NYS are made on families with teenagers who are chronically absent from school, or truant. The data also indicates that these youth present as “very low” on the scales that measure risk for child abuse or maltreatment. The Child Protective system should not be the point of entry for a family in need of assistance in reengaging their adolescent with the educational system. We seldom have the tools to offer meaningful help.”  FULL STORY

Wow.  The understatement of the century.  I have long wondered how Legally Abusing parents was supposed to help kids.  It's not as if parents don't already have their hands full trying to make a living, then these monsters come in and start kicking their ribcages in and demanding 3 days of their week to attend absurd useless classes.  CPS agents DO NOT CARE if the parents lose their jobs, savings, homes over CPS stupidity.

Liberty Quotes- Dr. Mary J. Ruwart

"In 1847, Marx and Engels proposed ten steps to convert the Western nations to Communist countries without firing a shot. Most of these ideas have been successfully implemented in our own country with little, if any, resistance! ... One of the ten steps called for "centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with state capital and an exclusive monopoly" just like our own Federal Reserve! ... Another of the ten steps called for instituting "a heavy progressive or graduated income tax" just like our own federal income tax! ... Another step proposed by Marx and Engels was "abolition of all right of inheritance," which we come ever closer to as inheritance taxes increase. Taking wealth at gunpoint, if necessary that one person has created and given to another person is theft. Whether the wealth creator is alive or dead, the act and the impact are the same. Another step was "free education for all children in public schools." Although our country still has many private schools in addition to the public ones, the content of both is dictated by aggression-through-government, to teach aggression. Marx and Engels also recommended the "extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state." In the past century, more and more services have become exclusive, subsidized government monopolies (e.g., garbage collection, water distribution, mass transit, etc.). As a result, we pay twice as much for lower quality service! Marx also called for the "centralization of the means of communications and transport in the hands of the state." Television and radio stations are licensed by the Federal Communications Commission. A station that does not pursue programming considered "in the public interest" is stopped at gunpoint, if necessary from further broadcast. ... Radio stations have an elite ownership as well. Those who benefit from aggression-through-government have little incentive to tell the public that licensing is a tool of the rich! ... Another of the ten steps calls for "confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels" ... [O]ur law enforcement agents can seize the wealth of anyone suspected of drug crimes without a trial! [T]he Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has also been seizing the assets of taxpayers without a trial if the IRS thinks they might have underpaid their taxes! The wealth we have created can be taken from us at gunpoint, if necessary without a formal accusation or a chance to defend ourselves! ... In addition, Marx and Engels called for "abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes." In other words, land would not be privately owned. No homesteading would be permitted. Our federal and local governments have title to 42% of the land mass of the United States. Most of the remaining land is under government control as well. For example, today's homeowners can pay off their mortgages, but must still pay property taxes to the local government. If they stop payments, their property is taken from them. They are, in essence, renting their home from the local government." -Dr. Mary J. Ruwart (1949- ) Source: Healing Our World: The Other Piece of the Puzzle, Ch 19. (1992)

'Tea party' hopefuls target Education Department

'Tea party' hopefuls target Education Department
Candidates renew call to abolish Carter-era agency
By Joseph Weber
The Washington Times
7:58 p.m., Monday, October 25, 2010

Conservatives have talked wistfully for years about eliminating the Education Department, but a host of Republican "tea party" candidates this election year are saying it's time to move beyond talk and force Congress to vote.

From West Virginia to Kentucky to Nevada, GOP Senate candidates have said they favor elimination of the Cabinet office, created as a separate department by President Carter in 1979 to elevate the federal government's profile on what had been considered a primarily local concern.

Senate candidate Rand Paul, in his Republican primary campaign in Kentucky, was among the first tea-party-backed candidates to revive the idea that the 30-year-old agency had failed students and that the states could do a better job.

"I think I would rather have local school boards, teachers, parents, people ... deciding about your schools and not have it in Washington," he said in a recent debate with the Democratic candidate, state Attorney General Jack Conway.

He has been joined by GOP Senate nominees Sharron Angle in Nevada, John Raese in West Virginia and Mike Lee in Utah, all of whom say they want to see the federal agency abolished. At least 10 Republican tea party candidates have either considered or called for an end to the agency, which for fiscal 2010 had a discretionary budget of $46.8 billion.

Ashley Schmidt said her teen years were a blur, and if you ask the now 21-year-old what movies or bands she liked, she draws a blank.

But Schmidt quickly remembers a different kind of list that marked her adolescence, the names of the nine psychotropic drugs she was once on as a foster child.

"In my opinion it was like they just wanted you to remain in a state of, I don't know, just where you weren't a nuisance to anybody," Schmidt said.

After entering foster care at age 15, Schmidt was in essence raised by psychiatrists, case workers and staff members of residential treatment centers.

"They made us do mouth checks and stuff like that to make it a point we took our meds," she said.

Psychotropics are drugs that change brain function and can have severe side effects. Schmidt said they made her feel sleepy, anxious and unable to concentrate. Her grades dropped from A’s and B's, to D's and F's. And according to Schmidt, the drugs didn't really treat her bipolar disorder; they only masked it.

"Maybe if it had been a good difference, it would have been better, but seeing as how it made me feel like a complete zombie, I guess. I lost track of time," she said.

...."It angers me we go through what we go through, and it's not our choice," she said.

IBM Helps Clark County Deliver Social Services

IBM Helps Clark County Deliver Social Services
Analytics Helps Improve Citizen Service, Adds Millions in New Revenue


LAS VEGAS, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced that Nevada's Clark County Family Services Department is using IBM business analytics software to improve the delivery of social services and ensure compliance with new state regulations. Furthermore, IBM has helped Clark County generate more than $7 million in new revenue in less than 18 months.

Clark County is the 15th-largest county in the U.S. and provides regional family and social services to more than two million residents. The Family Services Department is the local public agency whose role is to help keep children safe, as required by the Federal Adoption and Safe Families Act. The department runs numerous services – from child protective services to foster care services to adoption services – all of which require a large amount of data input and access.  FULL STORY

So does that mean the monsters can respond to FOIA/ Privacy Act / Sunshine Law requests in less than 90 days?  Will the computer automatically redact most of the pages and make them useless for discovery like they do now?  Does that mean that the agency is complying with any regulations or children are actually being "kept safe"?  Naw, it enabled the county to collect $7 million in new revenue, which is probably the enhanced ability to defraud Medicare.

..." I opposed the expanded interpretation of the law because I believe it has created an environment that fuels demagoguery and finger-pointing as opposed to a fair, open discourse on the highly complex, intensely emotional issues surrounding children in crisis."  FULL STORY

I left a comment there-  It is awaiting moderation.

Well Don, perhaps you might be interested in engaging with American Family Rights Association to “de-fuel demagoguery and finger-pointing as opposed to a fair, open discourse on the highly complex, intensely emotional issues surrounding children in crisis”?

After all, AFRA does have plenty to say on the subject. As far as we are concerned, CPS is an Organized Crime Ring and most of your agents daily break Federal Law, many of which are Capital offenses.

See “CPS violates USC in EVERY CASE- most are Capital Crimes”-
http://familyrights.us/bin/CPS_violates_these_every_case.htm

We believe that the “courts” hearing these cases are utterly unconstitutional.

See “What Happens in the Fog”-
http://www.examiner.com/family-rights-in-national/the-cps-case-what-happens-the-fog

We believe that the KIDS should first and foremost receive their American Constitutional Rights, which are infinitely superior to the United Nations “Rights of the Child”.

We have a lot of problem with the “Best Interest of the Child” being some sort of new civil right for their life decisions to be made for them by government.

See “Best interest of the child- A new “Civil Right”-

We are way beyond “being emotional” about the TYRANNY.

Nebraska- Privatizing child welfare near

Privatizing child welfare near

WORLD-HERALD BUREAU

LINCOLN, Nebraska-  Department of Health and Human Services officials hope to take a first step this week in replacing child welfare workers with private contractors.

So now the communists want to incorporate National Socialism.  The new buzz word for it is "Corporatism".  Privatizing a completely evil and corrupt operation is hardly likely to improve it.

Liberty Quote- Man is deeply vulnerable when faced with overwhelming evil.

Parental Rights- Gear Up for Victory in 2011


October 26, 2010

Gear Up for Victory in 2011

We are looking to win a major victory in 2011: we would see the U.S. House adopt the Parental Rights Amendment and send it to the Senate. We are making good progress toward that end, but there is still much work to be done.

The single greatest thing you can do right now to pave the way for this 2011 victory is to schedule and host viewings of “The Child: America’s Battle for the Next Generation.” The more people who see this film, the larger the army of voters we can raise in support of protecting children by safeguarding the rights of their parents through this Amendment. As grassroots support swells across the country, it will become easier and easier to persuade congressmen from every state to stand up and support this measure.

Our goal is to premiere in 1000 locations starting Nov. 20, and so far we have 100 sites. I hope this is a good sign, as I know many will need to check with locations before they can sign up for a showing. So check with the appropriate people and let us know as soon as possible. We look forward to hearing from you! (For more on “The Child” or to sign up to host a showing, visit parentalrights.org/thechild.)

The second greatest thing you can do this week is take one last opportunity to encourage every candidate in your area to sign the Parental Rights Pledge before next Tuesday’s elections. Through your efforts we have gained the support of 2 dozen candidates across the country, including contestants in hot races like the Nevada and Kentucky Senate elections. Even more importantly, we have added to the number of districts in which, no matter who wins next week, the Parental Rights Amendment is guaranteed support in the next Congress. Please, visit parentalrights.org/states, click on your state, then on Elections 2010 (or click your state name here), and call those candidates who still have not pledged their support.

I look forward to posting your movie showings and pledge successes online!

Gratefully,

More than two-thirds of social workers experience mental or emotional instability as a result of their job, according to a British Association of Social Workers (BASW) poll.

The survey of 1,392 social workers revealed that 70 per cent of respondents remain fearful that they are left unable to protect children because of the constraints of their job.

The poll showed that 68 per cent of social workers have experienced mental or emotional instability as a result of their work, with 45 per cent of these being forced to take time off as a result.  FULL STORY

US Human Rights violations

China paper slams US after WikiLeaks claims
Oct 25 01:00 AM US/Eastern
Breitbart

China's state media on Monday said the revelations in Iraq war documents published by WikiLeaks has tarnished the credibility of the United States as a protector of human rights.

The comments in the China Daily come after Beijing criticised a report by a commission of US lawmakers and government officials that condemned an "increasingly harsh" crackdown by Beijing on rights activists and lawyers.

The issue of human rights is always a sensitive one in Sino-US relations. Earlier this month Washington called for the immediate release of jailed Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo after he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

The documents published by the whistleblowing website WikiLeaks appear to show that the US military turned a blind eye to evidence of
torture and abuse of civilians by the Iraqi authorities.

"The magnitude of the crimes should make every righteous person angry. It again puts a big question mark against the US self-proclaimed image as the world human rights champion," the China Daily said in a commentary.

"For years, the US has been wielding the banner of human rights to criticise others, especially developing countries,"
it said.

"However, the US refuses to either clarify or rectify its own human rights violations as recorded by the WikiLeaks documents," it said, adding the documents let the world see through US "unilateralism and double standards".

"The US will lose credibility if it cannot face its own human rights violations squarely," the China Daily said.  FULL STORY

Yeah.  Tell us about it.  Our bureaucrats have been committing Capital crimes against the American Family for 35 years. Kidnapping our kids and running us through extreme Legal Abuse IS TORTURE.  We are completely fed up with it.

Child Death Report Notes Abuse, ATV, SIDS Cases

LOTS of figures and statistics here-
Child Death Report Notes Abuse, ATV, SIDS Cases
POSTED: 11:38 am CDT October 25, 2010
UPDATED: 12:29 pm CDT October 25, 2010
KCTV

TOPEKA, Kan. -- In its annual report, the Kansas State Child Death Review Board released statistics of child deaths from 2008, and the board made a number of recommendations to try to reduce some of the preventable deaths in the report.

The board broke the deaths out into six categories: natural-except sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) - 316 deaths; Natural-SIDS - 49 deaths; Unintentional injury (motor vehicle crash, drowning, strangulation, etc.) - 79 deaths; Homicide (including gang-related and child-abuse) - 26 deaths; Suicide - 9 deaths; and Undetermined - 23 deaths.

....The report noted that the violence-related deaths were the most alarming of the deaths. The statistics showed 50 percent of homicides came from abuse cases (13?) and most of those deaths came from children under the age of 4 and died from abusive head trauma. The report also noted 61 percent (almost 8 of the 13) were killed by someone other than their biological parent, including 38 percent (almost 5 of the 13) being killed by the mother's boyfriend who was left to care for the child.

FULL STORY

SO if I am reading the figures right, Kansas had 316 deaths in 2008.  Of those, 13 died from abuse.  Of those, 8 were not killed by parents, and 5 of those killers were shacked up boyfriends
Kids killed by parents in Kansas in 2008=  FIVE of the 316.  

Please note that the other 13 of the 26 homicides were gang related (Don't lose track of the fact that a "child" is anybody under 18 years old, and includes those who have run away- many of whom join gangs.

So WHY do we have this huge sociopathic CPS agency terrorizing parents and destroying families by the thousands and fraudulently spending
BILLION$ in Federal funding on "child abuse"?

Child protection campaign attracts few

Child protection campaign attracts few
Milanda Rout
From: The Australian
October 25, 2010 12:00AM

CHILD protection authorities have splashed out almost $200,000 on an international recruitment campaign.

But the campaign, launched in a desperate attempt to fill the vacancies left by staff deserting the system, has attracted just seven workers from New Zealand.

While the Victorian Ombudsman, the state opposition and workers have raised concerns about increasing caseloads and having the worst-paid child protection staff in the country, the Brumby government has offered New Zealand staff and their families up to $5,500 in moving costs, airfares, furniture and accommodation.

But since the campaign -- which was originally given $310,000 to spend on advertising and recruitment seminars -- began last year, only four staff have started at offices around the state and another two are due to begin in the coming months.

Department of Human Services documents obtained through Freedom of Information laws show the New Zealand recruitment program cost $190,865 in June.

The documents also show on top of the six hired, one staffer was still waiting for a visa, another accepted but took a job in Queensland and a third staffer accepted but stayed in New Zealand after getting a promotion.

The cost of these seven staff members comes after The Australian revealed that a quarter of child protection workers hired from Britain have broken their contracts and fled the system. FULL STORY

State residents launch massive effort to kick out 3 Supreme Court justices

Judicial elections across the United States, largely ho-hum affairs that only stand out when members of the black robes commit a crime, have turned white-hot in Iowa, where residents are organizing and campaigning to fire three of the state Supreme Court members who created same-sex marriage for the state.

Supporters of the judges – Marsha Ternus and Justices David Baker and Michael Streit – are countering with arguments that Iowans who want the three removed from office have abandoned the rule of law and become "the mob." FULL STORY

U.S. Department of Justice challenges state Chief Justices to fix access to justice systemic deficiencies
National Defender Leadership Institute

On July 26, 2010, Laurence Tribe, Senior Counsel for the United States Department of Justice, Access to Justice Initiative, delivered an important speech to the Conference of Chief Justices, challenging them to halt the disintegration of our state justice systems before they become indistinguishable from courts of third world nations. “If some of the things I’ll be asking of you, in your capacity as chief justices and as occupants of the bully pulpits in your respective states, will resemble judicial ‘activism,’ they will bear no resemblance to activism of an ideological stripe, right or left, but will bear the ‘activist’ label only to the degree that activism is understood as the opposite of passivity – a passivity that disclaims responsibility for the systems of which you are, after all, the stewards.”

The active participation of Chief Justices in reform is critical, Professor Tribe noted, to counterbalance the “hydra-headed monster” of “too many people to be served effectively” in the face of state legislators’ “appetite for imprisonment that ignores the veritable mountain of evidence which shows that alternatives to incarceration are often more effective at reducing recidivism while also less costly” and their “unwillingness to provide the legal assistance needed to provide meaningful, adequate defense.”

The often overlooked linked between broken justice systems – both civil and criminal – and escalating risks to public safety was of particular focus in the speech. Tribe stated that “clogged” and at times “corrupt” public courts lead to a “vicious cycle of cynicism and disaffection in which the system’s democratic legitimacy, the very foundation of its capacity to articulate and enforce the rule of law, disintegrates.” Tribe continued: “[T]hat in turn leads increasing numbers to flout the law.” FULL STORY
