Cases spark calls for cameras in Special Education classes

The Bullying Program in the public school system didn’t work for one simple reason:  There is always at least one adult involved.

The Abuse of Special Needs Children have been the subject of several of Our posts.  This does not surprise me in the least,  I only wonder how many of Our Children have been sexually abused by these people.

Just for your information, I could care less about who doesn’t like me recording them, and I do not tell anyone.  I have been told many times how illegal this is, and then I tell why it is not illegal.  I do want to mention that with a certain command, my phone records, and it is quiet possible that someone is listening to the conversation and possibly watching the events Real Time….

KOKOMO, Ind. (AP) — A Kokomo couple is calling for cameras in special education classrooms following an investigation into injuries their autistic son suffered in school last year.

Leslie and Daniel Brannon and other parents of children with special needs say the cameras would allow school officials and investigators to see what happened if a child is injured at school.

But educators and advocates fear they would trample on the rights of teachers and other students.

Many schools place cameras in hallways and on school buses to help monitor students’ behavior. Parents aren’t allowed to view the footage because of the privacy rights of other students caught on camera.

School administrators tell the Kokomo Tribune http://bit.ly/1dJj9Sn that they already have procedures in place to handle any allegations of wrongdoing in the classroom.

Alabama  –  A Gadsden man is facing child sexual abuse charges, as well as possession and production charges involving child pornography.

Thomas Aaron Craig, 30, was arrested Thursday, according to Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin.

Craig has been charged with one count of sexual abuse of a child less than 12 years old, one count of possession of child pornography and one count of production of pornography with minors.

Investigators say Craig sexually abused a 9-year-old girl over a two-year period.  When the victim saw a school presentation about what to do if a student is physically or sexual battered, she told a teacher she had been abused.  The teacher notified the sheriff’s office and the Etowah County Department of Human Resources.  The James M. Barrie Center for Children also assisted in the investigation.

Entrekin said investigators found more than 35 pornographic images on Craig’s cellphone.

He is being held in the Etowah County Detention Center on $150,000 cash bond

30 Days For a Life Sounds Like Victim Blaming

I WILL NOT GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT!!!!

All these symposiums, conferences, and meetings on Child Abuse this month sound real good;  but as I look at all the resources we have compiled, along with the certified studies, articles, and Our posts, I am not impressed.

TOO FRESH is the memory of what Alan Fountain went through in Georgia.  Nine months ago, I would have thought the petition Alan got together would have had a million signatures in a week or two, or at least 50,000 within a month.

TOO FRESH is New Mexico’s total disregard for Our Children, let alone Dereliction Of Duty due to the fact that at least 12 Sex Offenders were allowed to live far too close to a Day Care Center.

TOO FRESH is the sadness in my heart for my beloved Texas failing to report Child Abuse deaths

TOO FRESH is the 6,000 Child Abuse reports found in the trash in Arizona, the New York Daily News’ choice to post unsubstantiated reports of Clergy Abusing Children in Australia while New York falls further behind in investigating Child Abuse reports, or even Pennsylvania ignoring Sex Offenders and Child Sexual Abuse in their own school systems.

I say this because even as I looked at the new-born, beautiful little girl, I realized 11-year-old Raashanai and 3-year-old Scotty had come to see her….

Teacher Places Plastic Bag Over Child’s Head

LAUSD Teacher Charged With Child Abuse After Allegedly Placing Plastic Bag Over 4th Grader’s Head.

An elementary school teacher with the Los Angeles Unified School District who has been accused of placing a plastic bag over a student’s head in class was charged with a single count of child abuse Friday, officials said.

The charge came two days after the Los Angeles Police Department arrested 37-year-old Thelmo Garcia, a fourth-grade teacher at Rosewood Elementary School near West Hollywood.

During the Feb. 5 incident, Garcia allegedly placed the bag over a 10-year-old girl’s head and left it on for several seconds before removing it, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

A brief statement released by LAUSD on Thursday said that Garcia was removed from the school last month. His profile has already been taken down from the elementary school’s website.

Garcia was arraigned at the Foltz Criminal Justice Center in downtown L.A. on Friday and pleaded not guilty to the charge, according to the DA’s office.

He was being held on $100,000.

Garcia faces up to six year in state prison if convicted on the charge.
