I don’t know about you, but I got a lot out of The History Of Child Protection In America. I do want to commend all of Our ForeFathers, this Child Protection System has progressed right along with the schedule.
I AM NOT KIDDING, 7,000 years isn’t bad…. compared to BILLIONS of dollars annually that is grossly mismanaged.
The day we opened the NOT IN MY WORLD!!!! Google+ page, I began telling everyone that Our Country’s numbers are tainted. If any of you took the time to get the publication from the link on these last 5 parts of the series we just finished. But this post is also about it and several more, that will back me up 100%.
I just hope that sooner or later more than just a few of us start to really care about WHAT IS WRONG IN OUR COUNTRY. I am going to list several posts and some information , then I am going to do another post. But a Lady that I love and respect, that has helped countless sex slaves, named Sister Helen Ryan that was with St Mary’s in the UK, made sure I didn’t forget the fact that OUR NUMBERS ARE TAINTED ON PURPOSE.
When you finish looking at all I have included here, you should know beyond a shadow of doubt what is wrong with Our Country. (HINT: Whining, Sniveling, and Pontificating day after day does nothing Positive for WE THE PEOPLE!!!!)
A Short History of Child Protection in America Part #5
What would De Francis say today? I believe he would say that although today’s child protection system has many problems, the contemporary system is a vast improvement over the incomplete patchwork that existed in the 1960s. Today, child protective services are available across America, billions of dollars are devoted to child welfare, and thousands of professionals do their best to help struggling parents and vulnerable children.
As we look back across history, it is clear that the effort to protect children is not a story of failure, but a story of progress and hope. The child protection system is far from perfect, and much remains to be done, but, at the same time, much has been accomplished.
Faulty Reporting, Tainted Numbers
Texas didn’t report hundreds of child abuse, neglect deaths
Former US cybersecurity director gets 25 years for online child abuse
The former acting director of cybersecurity for the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison over his activities on a child abuse image website that was hidden – but not particularly well – on the Deep Web and accessed via the Tor anonymity network.
From the DOJ’s statement:
Through the website, DeFoggi accessed child pornography, solicited child pornography from other members, and exchanged private messages with other members in which he expressed an interest in the violent rape and murder of children. DeFoggi suggested meeting one member in person to fulfill their mutual fantasies to violently rape and murder children.
Child Abuse And Neglect Laws Aren’t Being Enforced
Laws intended to protect children from abuse and neglect are not being properly enforced, and the federal government is to blame. That’s according to a study by the Children’s Advocacy Institute at the University of San Diego School of Law, which says children are suffering as a result.
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 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.
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. Those standards include such things as timely investigation of reports of child abuse. The institute blames Congress and the courts for failing to get involved.
Georgia Lawmakers are on the Child Abusers Team
Lawmakers debate child sex abuse bill
On Wednesday, lawmakers debated a proposal that would strengthen protections for the victims. The Hidden Predator Act would extend the statute of limitations. That means victims would be able to file charges at a much older age.
Survivors say that could bring victims and their abusers out of the shadows.
“It allows victims to go into the courthouse and file suit, which makes things public,” said Justin Conway, an abuse survivor.
“You’re not by yourself. There are so many more who have gone through the same thing,” said Marilyn Motz, another survivor.
The bill also would grant victims access to sealed records so they can press charges.
