RE: Rampant Abuse of Children and the failures of DCF

it also came out that Florida had lost track of FIVE HUNDRED CHILDREN. FIVE HUNDRED!!!!!!!!!!!! How do we know they weren't sold into some sex trafficking/kiddie porn ring? WE DON'T. Half of the dept could be pedophiles and nobody would know because nobody is accountable. Conversely, CPS/DCF at al, are just as notorious for taking kids away from loving families when they shouldn't be!!!!!!!!

OMG, everything is so fucked up. This is the nanny state, in action, overseeing the dirtbags of society. It's incompetent and corrupt morons in charge of the slave plantation.

Why are these fucking immigrants in this country?! Like we don't have enough of our own dirtbags? We need MORE??? And, lets make them FOSTER PARENTS!!! Yeah, that's a great idea. Oh, fuck, we are so screwed as a country.

Throwing money at it will NOT help.

Once again, Rilya Wilson comes to mind.

I am reminded of Lisa Steinberg. I was heartsick over her story.

YES. Such a beautiful, sweet, innocent, precious child. One of a pile of statistics. Heartbreaking and sickening.

This shit makes me so mad I feel like my head could explode.

RE: Rampant Abuse of Children and the failures of DCF

Storm and Midwest, if you follow just the barahona case in the Miami Herald, your rage will consume you! as it does me. as a LEO in florida, i had to often deal with them and it was an exercise in futility. i tried to understand their overwhelming caseloads, but this was life or death! i hope this case will finally cause a groundswell of change in florida. i know the judge was enraged.
and of course it's not only florida. it played a role in the Zahra case in NC as well. and countless others that are not high-profile.

I can't even imagine the fear and pain these kids lived with, as does every other child that's abused.

How do rid our world of the monsters that commit these heinous acts? There's got to be something that can be done.

RE: Rampant Abuse of Children and the failures of DCF

Can we really blame a governmental agency for this? Society is to blame. Someone raised these fucked up parents that can't take care of their own children. Why are there so many now?

The stupidest thing they do to "fix" this is give children to grandparents who raised the fucked up parents in the first place...

WE have to do something. Don't leave it up to the government. Be a mentor to a kid who needs you.

I know LC. It actually depresses me. I have 3 kids, and can't imagine any of them suffering like Zahra, these two twins, and the thousands and thousands of others. I want to stick my head in the sand, because I don't know what to do.

If you blame "society" then the people who are actually responsible will not be held accountable. I'm not responsible for this, you're not.

I understand the political and social bullshit that's created a lot of this but it's just too damn broad a subject to address! The corrupt in government will continue to protect the corrupt in government and "liberals" will keep making excuses for the nanny state that they have created, along with misfits that result from it, and it's all about preserving a status quo that is of financial benefit to and protects the political power of the establishment. They have created a plantation of an ignorant, criminal slave class and this is how they "manage" them.

RE: Rampant Abuse of Children and the failures of DCF

We should either criminally charge or financially charge people who brought children into the world they can't/don't/won't care for properly. Why isn't it a crime?

I didn't create the problem, but I do mentor. It is the one thing I CAN do about it. Otherwise I just feel helpless and hopeless.

RE: Rampant Abuse of Children and the failures of DCF

MiamiHerald.com

Four days after Nubia Barahona’s decomposed body was found in the flatbed of her adoptive father’s pickup truck, state child-welfare authorities completed a quick review of the 10-year-old girl’s involvement with Florida’s child protection system, and concluded that a series of abuse investigations lacked “a sense of urgency’’ and contained several instances of shoddy case work.

Nubia’s adoptive parents, Jorge and Carmen Barahona, were charged Monday with first-degree murder, child abuse and neglect for both Nubia’s death and events that led up to it. Her twin brother, Victor, was found badly burned by caustic chemicals in Jorge Barahona’s truck on Valentine’s Day, hours before Nubia’s body was discovered.

On Feb. 18, four days later, state Department of Children & Families administrators completed an 11-page analysis of their efforts on behalf of the children, detailing a host of lapses involving five child-abuse and neglect investigations that followed the twins’ placement in the Barahonas’ then-foster home, as well as the actions of privately run foster care and adoption agencies under contract with DCF.

The report was provided to The Miami Herald in response to a public records lawsuit filed last month.

A review of the investigation records for two abuse reports in 2010 and 2011 show:

• Records don’t document that “diligent efforts’’ were made to locate Nubia and Victor after the state’s abuse hotline received a Feb. 10 call that the children were being bound with tape and locked in a bathroom. The twin’s adoptive mother, Carmen Barahona, told a DCF investigator the children were with her husband, a statement police now say was meant to mislead investigators.

• No law enforcement agency was notified of the Feb. 10 abuse allegations before Nubia was found dead. “Based on the allegations of bizarre punishment and physical injury, [police] involvement would have been critical at the onset of the investigation,’’ the report said.

• A June 2010 report that Nubia was “uncontrollably’’ hungry, very thin and losing her hair should have been labeled by the agency’s Tallahassee-based hotline as an allegation of abuse — not as a report that the Barahaonas needed help from the state. Coding the complaint an abuse report could have placed the family under “closer scrutiny’’ when the investigation began.

Police said Monday that the children had been beaten and tortured for a year prior to Nubia’s death, which would have included the time of the June report. The June investigation was closed with a finding of no need for services or intervention by the state.

• The investigator assigned to the February hotline call, Andrea Fleary, did not attempt to interview the Barahonas’ two other adoptive kids outside of Carmen Barahona’s presence. The two children, the report said, “appeared to be strongly influenced by their caregiver,’’ and may have been more forthcoming in a private conversation with the investigator. Records, in fact, show one of the two children had tried to tell an investigator about a family “secret,’’ but was shunted aside by Carmen.

Records don’t specify whether the investigator for a 2007 report that said Nubia was dirty, unkempt and hungry interviewed the children away from the parents at the center of the complaint — though the report said “Nubia is afraid to talk.’’

The report also takes issue with the performance of foster-care and adoption workers with either DCF, which privatized foster care around 2005, or Our Kids, the lead foster-care agency now under contract with the state. The Barahonas were licensed foster parents from July 1999 through July 2009.

Records don’t show that the twins were seen by caseworkers every 30 days, as required, and interviewed by caseworkers “during the majority of home visits’’ through their five years in foster care, the report says.

Notes in case files also do not show that caseworkers contacted doctors, teachers, childcare workers or others to confirm information that was provided by the Barahonas before the twins were adopted in 2009, the report says.

And, most importantly, records repeatedly documented an “immediate need’’ for dental care for the children, though the kids apparently seldom or never went to the dentist. At a court hearing last month, a Child Protection Team doctor said the Barahonas’ three surviving children all need extensive dental work, including root canals and extractions.

At a hearing of an investigative panel Monday, the head of the privately run Center for Family & Child Enrichment, Delores Dunn, said case managers from her group made 48 visits to the family between June 2005 and May 2009, when the twins were adopted.

During tense questioning by the three-member panel in which Dunn was repeatedly asked to specify ways the process could be improved, she said that, in hindsight, “I would not [do anything] different. I cannot say to you that anything that we did caused this death.’’

Is this the "special conditions" coding mentioned in the previous article?

And why wouldn't this be classified as neglect at the very least?

Yes. And we should.

In 1964 LBJ declared a "War on Poverty". Blame the War Department.

These are casualties of this "War".

It's been almost fifty years of "fighting". Is victory on the horizon?

BTW - What is the cost of this "War on Poverty"?

I only hear about the cost of the war on our peaceful Muslim brothers and sisters.

And the one on drugs, too.

Just yesterday I heard someone (Ron Paul, Rand Paul, Peter Schiff, maybe?) say that when our government declares war on something it becomes a huge problem.

The welfare system, LBJ's Great Society, created a slave plantation. Part of that deal was splitting up families. A mother on welfare isn't supposed to live with the dad of her kid(s). The state becomes the parents/nanny/massah of the family. To get the privilege of "help", rights are given up - not to mention dignity. Now we have multi generation welfare families. Add to that the dumbed down "education", day care, Head Start, ect. Who's raising these kids? The STATE. Politicians, gov't employees, and social organizations jealously guard that system. They masquerade as being anti-poverty and anti-racism when it is their state monstrosity that keeps the plantation going.

I could safely bet, and I am not a gambler, that about 90% of the people that LC had to deal with in her career received some kind of state aid. This is the social structure that spawns this horror show.
