Shorewood, Wisconsin  –  A Shorewood man was charged with child abuse and neglect after a four-month old infant was taken to Children’s Hospital regarding possible child abuse.

The child, who resided in the 4000 block of North Morris Blvd., sustained injuries consistent with an intentional act.

In 2003, Pollard was charged and found guilty of one count of child abuse.

CORRUPT CPS STILL TRYING TO KEEP LAW ENFORCEMENT OUT OF THE LOOP

Madison, Wisconsin  –  The State Senate on Tuesday passed two bills backed by Attorney General Brad Schimel aimed at protecting child abuse victims.

One of the bills grants an advocate to victims of sexual assault, human trafficking or child abuse and another creates a new felony crime for engaging in repeated acts of child abuse.  Under current law, different acts of child abuse must be prosecuted separately.

The bills were introduced in October as part of a package that included two other bills that have drawn broader opposition, including a resolution opposing them by the Dane County Board.

Those bills, which broaden the definition of child neglect and expand reporting requirements to law enforcement for child abuse and neglect, passed committee on party lines, but have not been scheduled for a full Senate vote.  Opponents worry they will disproportionately affect low-income minorities and widen disparities in the criminal justice system.

Jason Mugnaini, an aide to Sen. Rob Cowles, who authored the bills, said the senator remains hopeful the other two will pass this session.

It Begins Here, Now

Make A Difference

Make A Difference:  a New Resolution

You KNOW that you deserve MORE;  you wakeup, shower(or maybe you shower at night, or both, my point is: you keep yourself clean), dress nice, have breakfast(I hope you have enough to eat), then you go about your business for the day.

Who else do you KNOW deserves MORE, your family, your friends????

OK, now comes the hard part:  WHAT exactly do you, your family, and your friends deserve MORE of????

  1. Respect
  2. Consideration
  3. Trust
  4. Thoughtfulness
  5. Accepted
  6. Liked
  7. Loved
  8. Jobs
  9. Education
  10. Understanding

I KNOW that I deserve MORE, just as my family, friends, and neighbors deserve MORE.

Change begins within one’s own self with the desire for something different.  How can we affect change without first changing our own self, i.e. meeting the same standard.

After the last year and four months I have finally realized that there are many people who are very unhappy with the Violence, racial strife, lack of respect, lack of friendship, lack of good will, Elder Abuse, Domestic Violence, Child Abuse, and very little genuine love.

Yesterday, while discussing our direction for the next year, the subject of New Year Resolutions suddenly became very real, and I saw it play out.  I ignored my two agitators when I awoke from my unplanned nap, and instead drew my new notebook and old days notebook close and went to work.

I have tested this repeatedly today in several different situations and I am very happy with the results, which was 100% positive, very positive.  I do want to tell everyone that I have been involving my Step-Father more and more for insight, comparison of opinions, and in search of ideas, with more and more interaction.  He was present at my last test, but when I brought the matter up after we had left, it occurred to me that we had finally more than communicated, after all these years he knew….

I CARE, and I know there are many more that care, and it is time for US to do all we can, but give me another few minutes to try to convince as many of the LEMMINGS to help, as possible.

I hear the beautiful people spout their racial rhetoric and TALK, and time and time again the LEMMINGS take up the chant, SEVERAL OF THESE LEMMING IDIOTS ARE RIGHT HERE ON WORDPRESS, and you can tell one or two by the fact that they never post during mid-morning while “SHE” is on TV, they wouldn’t dare miss HER HYPNOTIC BS, so they can spread more racial strife.

FIRST, I want to remind all Texans that as a promise for letting lotto into Texas, all proceeds would go to education….  OH SO SOME OF YOU REMEMBER.

OK, what all the beautiful people couldn’t care less about telling you is that all the education you want is right there on that internet FREE for the taking.  IF YOU DON’T know how, email me, but I expect honesty.

I hope and pray you will join with us to help 2016 get started right, if you do, copy Our graphic “MAKE A DIFFERENCE” and post it every time you get a chance.

Now I want you all to watch this short video about Bullying please, the name is “The Silent Word”.

Colorado hotline expands reporting of suspected Child Abuse and Neglect


Child abuse reporting

State and local officials encourage Coloradans to report suspected child abuse and neglect.

People living anywhere in Colorado can call the state child abuse/neglect hotline: 1-844-CO-4-KIDS (1-844-264-5437), to speak to a representative 24 hours a day, every day.

People suspecting abuse of children or at-risk adults living in Boulder County can also call the county’s own hotline: 303-441-1309, also 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

With the approaching first anniversary of the launch of a toll-free statewide telephone hotline for reporting child abuse and neglect, child-welfare officials are urging Coloradans to stay vigilant if they’re concerned about a child’s safety and well-being.

The Colorado Department of Human Services announced that as of Dec. 20, state and county officials had received nearly 205,000 reports of suspected child abuse or neglect since the hotline went live on Jan. 1 — both through the new state hotline and from people contacting counties’ and the state’s human services offices.

“There is a growing understanding in our community that we all play a role in keeping our kids safe,” state Department of Human Services Director Reggie Bicha said in a news release.

Bicha said the 1-844-CO-4-KIDS hotline is integral to help Coloradans spot and report signs of child abuse and neglect. “One call can save a child,” he said.

Of the total 204,983 calls received by Dec. 20 about possible child abuse or neglect, 26,461 were made on the state hotline, according to Department of Human Services spokesman Lee Rasizer.  Of that total, 4,516 came from Boulder County, 706 from Broomfield County and 5,395 from Weld County.

Under a system in which calls are evaluated and determinations made about whether further assessments and investigations are merited, and how rapidly those assessments and investigations need to be made, 88,441 of the total calls to the state’s hotline and Colorado counties were accepted for assessment and 32,709 were assessed and investigated, Rasizer said.

Accepted for assessment and possible further action, he said, were 1,678 of the original 4,516 reports originally received about possible child abuse or neglect in Boulder County, 183 of the 706 reports received about situations in Broomfield County, and 1,793 of the 5,395 reports about possible abuse or neglect in Weld County.

The state child abuse and neglect hotline links callers at all hours to the appropriate official.  All calls are confidential and will be routed to the county where a child resides.

Boulder County also has its own child abuse hotline, 303-441-1309, said Jim Williams, spokesman for the County Department of Housing and Human Services.  But in emergencies, call 911.

“The hotline technology allows callers to be connected around the clock with screeners who can discuss their concerns with them,” Williams said. 

No Death Penalty In GA Fatal Child Abuse Case

No Death Penalty in Child Abuse case

Lead Investigator in the case, former GBI Agent, facing Child Abuse charges

Monroe County, Georgia  –  Prosecutors are no longer seeking the death penalty in a deadly child abuse case because the lead investigator in the case is facing child molestation charges.

Amanda Hendrickson is the woman accused of killing her 5 year-old daughter Heaven Woods in May of 2014.  Lawyers argued more than 100 pre-trial motions this afternoon as Amanda Hendrickson sat quietly in court.

District Attorney Richard Milam says one reason they dropped the death penalty is because of the lead investigator in the case.  Milam says that’s former GBI agent Charles Woodall, is facing child molestation charges.  “(If we) call him in as a witness brings into the trial all of the things that he’s accused of doing.  So therefore, we’re going to try to avoid that as much as possible but when you’re asking a jury to make that consideration you really need to give them everything,” said Milam.

Milam says now they’re seeking life with or without parole in the case.

One of Hendrickson’s defense attorney’s Burt Baker says dropping the death penalty is appropriate in this case.  Baker says Hendrickson has an intellectual disability.  “Our client was given an IQ test, in the I believe it was the third grade, where she scored in the intellectually disabled or mentally retarded range,” said Baker.

Woods died in a Monroe County hospital with a broken arm and five broken ribs.  Hendrickson’s boyfriend, Roderick Buckner, pleaded guilty in June to first degree child cruelty in the case, he received a life sentence.  “Milam says Hendrickson’s trial is currently scheduled for September.
