UPDATE – Featured Most Wanted Fugitive Arrested in Oregon
AUSTIN, TX – Donald Jack Robertson II, 43, a Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitive and November’s featured fugitive, is now in custody after being captured on Nov. 23 in Portland, Oregon.
Robertson had been wanted since 2011 for aggravated sexual assault of a child, sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child-sexual contact. The arrest was the result of tip information, and a reward up to $10,000 will be paid.
Working off tip information, the U.S. Marshals Joint East Texas Fugitive Task Force coordinated with the U.S. Marshals Service-District of Oregon to locate and arrest Robertson at a residence in Portland. Since the arrest was the result of tip information and the tip was received during the month that Robertson was featured, the increased reward of up to $10,000 (originally $5,000) will be paid.
So far in 2015, DPS and other agencies have arrested 28 Texas 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders, including 19 sex offenders, and $79,000 in rewards have been paid for tips that resulted in arrests.
One offender from the Texas 10 Most Wanted Program is featured each month in hopes the higher reward money from the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division will generate additional tips.
Roanoke Memorial staff said the child had retinal hemorrhaging, which is commonly associated with “Shaken Baby Syndrome”
SALEM, VA – Newly released search warrants detail moments leading up to the death of a 3-month-old child in Salem.
Salem police have charged the father, Jwawn Lamont James Sr., 41, with abuse and neglect of a child, and aggravated malicious wounding.
According to court documents, on Wednesday, Nov. 18 Salem Fire & Rescue along with officers from the Salem Police Department responded to 1016 Homestead Dr. in Salem in reference to an unresponsive child.
Upon arrival, police interviewed the child’s father, James, to determine the circumstances that led to the child’s state.
James advised to police as he was carrying his daughter into the home he tripped at the front door and dropped the car seat/carrier.
James indicated she was not strapped in, which caused his daughter to fall out of the car seat/carrier and on to her face and head.
James said he then picked up the child, checked to make sure she was OK, and placed her into the bassinet while he took a shower. James told police that after getting out of the shower, he found his daughter unresponsive and called 911. James said he proceeded to shake his daughter due to her being unresponsive.
The 3-month-old was transported to Roanoke Memorial for treatment.
At the hospital, detectives spoke with hospital staff regarding the child’s condition. Roanoke Memorial staff said the child had retinal hemorrhaging, which is commonly associated with “Shaken Baby Syndrome”, a collapsed lung, and head trauma.
Roanoke Memorial Hospital staff advised the child’s injuries were not consistent with the manner in which James provided that they occurred, and more likely the result of child abuse.
As a result, detectives requested to search James’ residence for any evidence related to abuse.
Things searched for:
Any and all seats, swings, and/or bassinets that the child may have been placed-in to include the padding and bedding commonly associated with these items
Any and all documents related to the care of the child such as hospital and/or doctor records
Any and all throw-rugs and/or mats located in the entry way of the residence
Any and all medications appropriate to be administered to a 3 month old child
Any and all pacifiers and/or other soothing devices
Any and all devices such as bottles or spoons used to feed a 3 month old child
Resident searched: 1016 Homestead Drive in Salem – single story ranch style home
Also, detectives have seized three cell phones – a Samsung Galaxy, Kyocera, and Motorola Droid – for the search and forensic analysis of the electronic devices and storage media for digital/text pictures, call logs, SMS messages, contact and videos.
I had been hearing Psychologists and Psychiatrists were going to do the same as was done in the 1970’s, which was, in effect, manipulate data and studies to achieve another perversion of the morals of America.
On November 07, 2015, I found the first article of what will be many more to come.
The next day, I posted an Editorial before posting this first attempt at the further perverting of Our Country. In this Editorial I warned everyone of the tricks and out-and-out lies that will be used to sugar-coat the truth of what will steal the innocence of Our Children, and ultimately, their futures.
In one sentence this Psychologist callas this a sexual orientation, yet in the very next paragraph, she calls it sexual urges, which is the same as a fantasy.
This is not a fantasy to Our Children, nor is it make believe, THIS IS AN ADULT RAPING A CHILD!!!!
After all of this, I find that “SubWay Jared” is saying that it wasn’t his fault that he had sex with Children.
In this broken, perverse society in which we live, there is a serious lack of RESPONSIBILITY FOR A PERSON’S OWN ACTIONS, A SERIOUS LACK OF RESPECT FOR THE LAWS OF OUR LAND, AND A SERIOUS LACK OF RESPECT FOR OFFICERS OF THE LAW.
A sex offender will molest an average of 120 victims.
There are 3,000,000 reports of Child Maltreatment every year, yet far less than 25% of the incidents are ever reported. This translates to over 12,000,000 incidents of Child Maltreatment per year.
This year alone, 10,000,000 Children, ages 13 and up, will contract at least one or more STI or STD.
I have yet to locate a compiled list for the number of Children, ages Birth to 12, that will contract an STI or STD.
This year alone there will be at least 2,000,000 runaways.
At least 1 in 6 runaways will fall into Child Sex Traffickers hands.
This translates into 333,340 Children that will fall into Child Sex Traffickers hands, AND BE RAPED.
The average victims age is 11 to 14.
The average life span of a victim is 3 to 7 years.
So I want you to think about how many of these Children are being protected by a Psychologist, and I believe you are like me in one respect, and that is I DO NOT WANT ANY CHILD PREDATORS OR SEX OFFENDERS NEAR A CHILD.
A federal commission to prevent children’s deaths from abuse and neglect held its first meeting on Monday. Figuring out the extent of the problem is just one challenge facing the new commission.
(CT – Commission talking) About 1700 children die in the U.S. each year as the result of abuse and neglect. At least that’s the official count.
Many experts think the real number is much higher.
“DEATHS AT THE HANDS OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS”????
(CT) The stories are usually too horrific for people to think about; children beaten, stabbed, abused to death often at the hands of family or friends. And often in families that have already raised red flags with authorities.
HEAD OF “EVERY CHILD MATTERS” GIVES SUGGESTION
Michael Petit, who heads an advocacy group called Every Child Matters, says one problem is that the cause of death is often in dispute.
And I think knowing what those three or 4,000 deaths are is going to be important to us, in terms of what’s the cause of death, who is that’s doing the crime, and so forth, right?
FORMER CHILD WELFARE OFFICIAL CHAIRS THE COMMISSION????
(CT) But panel members say there is a lot that is known about such deaths, such as their prevalence in households with a history of domestic violence or drug abuse.
(CT) Others have been down this road before and we’ve still got child deaths. I think we’re idealistic to think that we’re going to stop all child deaths.
(CT) The panel could make some progress reducing them. It has two years to complete its work. ∗∗∗∗(3 months left)
Child Abuse And Neglect Laws Aren’t Being Enforced, Report Finds January 27, 2015
The numbers are grim. Almost 680,000 children in the United States were the victims of abuse and neglect in 2013. More than 1,500 of them died.
FEDERAL OFFICIALS SAY NUMBERS ARE LOWER????
Federal officials say they’re encouraged that the numbers are lower than they were in 2012. But children’s advocates say abuse is so often not reported that it’s impossible to know if there’s really been a decline.
DATA IS FLAWED
“This is just something that’s chronically underreported,” says Elisa Weichel, a staff attorney with the Children’s Advocacy Institute, which published the report Tuesday.
She says abuse and neglect cases — especially those resulting in death — are often not disclosed as required by law. That lack of information has led to other problems in the system.
“It all boils down to having the right amount of data about what’s working and what’s not,” Weichel says. “And when your data is flawed, every other part of your system is going to be flawed.”
NOT ONE STATE MEETS MINIMUM CHILD WELFARE STANDARDS
Her group has found plenty of flaws. The institute conducted a three-year study and found that not one state has met all of the minimum child welfare standards set by the federal government.
LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE
“Whether or not individual states can meet a reporting standard to us is not where the emphasis ought to be,” says Ron Smith, director of legislative affairs for the American Public Human Services Association, which represents child welfare administrators.
“It needs to be on making sure that the kids who need assistance are getting assistance, and the families that need assistance are getting the assistance,” he says.
Smith says state and local officials complain that they spend too much time filling out federal forms and trying to meet requirements that aren’t necessarily best for kids.
Instead, he says, they want flexibility on how to spend federal funds so they can focus more on keeping families together.
