“I called CPS. I called the governor. I called whoever I could,” grandmother Alisa Clakely said. “I took pictures and sent them to CPS.”
In response, Clakely said CPS case workers told her they would look into the issues. But then, nothing would happen.
“If we had done something sooner, I don’t know,” Clakely said. “I don’t know.”
The child’s mother, Jeri Quezada, is being held on $500,000 bond while Charles Phifer is being held on $1 million bond.
In an arrest affidavit released last week, police allege the couple used heroin and repeatedly beat and restrained the girl before she stopped breathing, after which the child was transported to an area hospital where she was pronounced dead.
According to CPS, Leiliana’s case is being reviewed internally. A full report will be released in the next few weeks.
I have a very sad, heartbreaking story to post, and I want to ask all of you to please read the story. But more than that, even though I have listed time and time again, the cruel, mean, and against the law exploits these feelingless renegades and sick minded mavericks of CPS who seem to think persecuting Children, Parents, and Families is their sole purpose on this earth.
What I dislike about this evil that is forced upon Our Children, which rips away the illusion of the good in this world, just as the out-of-control violence, is the fact that the Clergy was forced to stand alone and face their accusers.
The Dennis Hasterts of this world sit on the side-line, right next to Jared Fogle’s empty chair, above justice and unrepentant, just as DHHS(CPS).
All the while, the huddled masses haven’t a clue, soon the break will end and the Lemming-Like feel gooders will resume tipping their glasses to Dionysus while resuming their rush toward the sea. Totally ignorant, they are, of the dropping odds in the Russian Roulette game of life and death, for tonight may very well be the first moment of ending life as the talented Mercury.
What follows is the Headline and link to the story of the poor, over-worked, under-paid CPS employees who walk around with a big bulls eye painted on them, as they are forced to take the blame for every little thing that goes wrong.
But first, I am including two resources to help our readers keep the good of Our Children foremost in mind.
At a hearing reviewing the program, officials from the department angered Democratic and Republican senators, who dismissed their answers as incomplete or complained that they failed to take full responsibility for the children who were abused or exploited.
I hope you all will take the time to read this review of these “poor, overworked, heroes”, I was crying so hard, that I almost took up a collection for these mistreated LIARS.
Then I want to leave you with this last bit of information, before I bring you the story of Leiliana Wright, a Dear 4-year-old girl, that paid her last tab on March 13, 2016.
The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution says that a state may not make a law that abridges “… the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States” and no state may “deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” Title 42 United States Code Section 1983 states that citizens can sue in federal courts any person who acting under a color of law to deprive the citizens of their civil rights under the pretext of a regulation of a state.
Parker County recognizes April as Child Abuse Awareness Month
Weatherford, Texas – A Child Abuse Prevention Flag will fly on the west side of the Parker County Courthouse during the month of April as the county and Parker County’s Child Protective Services Board look to raise awareness about child abuse and prevention through a series of activities for Child Abuse Awareness Month.
“We have declared April as Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month in Parker County,” Parker County Judge Mark Riley said. “We stand with the Parker County CPS Board in their efforts to raise awareness and prevent the abuse of children throughout Parker County and Texas.”
Statistics related to child abuse are gut wrenching, with 171 child abuse fatalities reported in Texas in 2015. Parker County had 442 confirmed cases of child abuse in 2015 while the state had 40,318.
“Public awareness through community education is shown to be the most effective agent in the prevention of child abuse and neglect,” said Angie Childers, Chair of the CPS Board Child Abuse Prevention Campaign. “Child abuse can be prevented given the right knowledge of recognizing the signs, how to report, equipping struggling parents with parenting resources such as substance abuse counseling and developing a support system for them, as well as empowering kids themselves with personal safety education and the resources available to them. We appreciate the Parker County Commissioners Court for their support in helping to spread the word.”
Anyone aware of child abuse and neglect should please report it to 1-800-252-5400, or at texasabusehotline.org. It is the law. A well informed and aware general public may be the only hope an abused child has, according to Childers.
Parker County’s CPS Board will promote activities to raise awareness for preventing and reporting child abuse and neglect, thereby strengthening the health, safety and productivity of the children and residents throughout the community.
Those wanting to assist the Parker County CPS Board can attend the annual fundraising dinner, “Saddle Up for Kids” to be April 28 at the Sheriff’s Posse and tickets can be purchased at www.childwelfareboardpc.org.
All 25,636 students in Parker County are given items such as a bracelet or pencil bag printed with a prevention message and reporting number on it, according to Childers.
A child abuse billboard just west of Weatherford on Highway 180 has been procured by the Board for up to 6 months with a public exposure rate of over 3.5 million over that time.
“Something else new this year are the child abuse prevention flags along the bridge on Fort Worth Highway by Albertson’s and the city’s First Monday grounds,” CPS Board President Gerald Hobson said. “The city generously donated the space for our use and we appreciate that greatly.”
A new measure to further education of preventing child abuse for those in direct contact with students are the Child Protection Training DVDs the CPS Board is giving all 50 campuses in Parker County. These DVDs are produced by the Dallas Child Advocacy Center and come in a set containing one for staff and volunteers on recognizing and reporting, one for parents on how to keep your kids safe in the real and virtual world, one for students,” You Are Not Alone”, along with a Spanish version of the same.
“These will be a gift to all our campuses to have available to show to parents, students and staff, not only as a part of the prevention campaign but any time needed,” Childers said. “These DVD’s will also help our districts be TEA and Jenna’s Law complaint in child abuse prevention protocols.”
Go Blue Day, April 8th is also known as National Child Abuse Awareness Day. This is the day that many school districts participate by students and staff wearing blue, discussing the issue and watching the dvd’s that the CPS Board provides.
Jenna’s Law is also known as House Bill 1041 from the 2009 legislative session. The bill mandates each school district to adopt and implement a policy addressing sexual and physical abuse of children to include methods for increasing teacher, student and parent awareness of issues regarding abuse warning signs and providing actions to obtain assistance and intervention for a child who is a victim.
The CPS Board will be setting up pinwheels on the lawn of the Parker County Courthouse, representing all 442 victims of child abuse in Parker County. The pinwheel is the national symbol of child abuse prevention and these gardens are coordinated all over Texas.
April 24 is Blue Sunday, with everyone asked to wear blue, the national color of child abuse prevention. Blue Sunday is also the national day of prayer for the prevention of child abuse.
