Green Bay man charged with Child Abuse, strangulation and suffocation
GREEN BAY, WI – A Green Bay man has been formally charged in Brown County court for allegedly abusing his daughter.
According to court documents, Brave Cannon, 39, was charged Thursday with one count of child abuse – high probability/great harm, with another charge of strangulation and suffocation, as well as disorderly conduct.
The disorderly conduct charge is classified as a misdemeanor, while the other two are classified as felonies.
Documents state the incident happened just before 12 p.m. on July 15 on Elmore Street.
The victim told police on July 17 that she had had some friends that went over to her father’s home on the 15 to have pizza and hang out, and that her father hadn’t been home when they got there.
However, she then went to take a shower, and when she got out, her father was yelling that she had too many friends over, and told police she could smell alcohol on his breath, and knew he was drunk.
She told police Brave became angrier, and yelled more, after which she told everyone to leave and started packing up her things.
When she went back to the bathroom for her shoes, Brave allegedly pushed her very hard, and then grabbed her around her neck and squeezed.
She then said that it had hurt, she couldn’t talk and it was difficult to breathe.
Eventually, the victim was able to get out of that, but then said Brave put her in a headlock for around 30 seconds, and he threw her head against the wall.
The victim’s cousin then entered the house after hearing a commotion, and told Brave to let his daughter go or they would call the police, which he complied to.
Court records haven’t updated to show when Brave’s next court date is.
Annual motorcycle ride brings
awareness about Child Abuse, Safety
INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The grandmother of a fatal child abuse victim hopes motorcyclists and even non-riders will help raise awareness about keeping kids safe.
Although 3-year-old Carmen Ellis is no longer alive, her memory lives on thanks to her family, friends and even people who never had to a chance to meet her.
“She was just the sweetest little girl and just very funny,” Tina Smith said.
Tina lights up talking about her late granddaughter Carmen. She and her husband, Lorin Smith who is also a motorcyclist, are organizing another annual fundraiser called the Carmen Ellis Memorial Ride, which started eight years ago following Carmen’s death.
“She died August 22, 2012, killed because of child abuse by my daughter’s boyfriend,” said Tina.
Every year since 2012, to remember Carmen, Tina has raised money for child abuse charity.
The Smiths have teamed up with local VFWs, which serves as some of the stops for the memorial ride. This year the fundraiser will also include kicking off with a breakfast where participants can make donations. The breakfast takes place from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. with an all-you-can-eat buffet with a $7.75 donation. The memorial ride starts at The American Legion Post 495 located at 8725 East 38th St., in Indianapolis. The donation is $20 per motorcycle rider and just $5 per passenger. Kickstands up at 10:30 am.
The couple also plans to do a 50/50 drawing, auctions and raffles. Tina and Lorin don’t usually set a number of riders for each event but it has grown each year just by word of mouth. This year’s event will take place after missing last year.
The memorial ride happened last year but without Tina and Lorin. They both lost their lower left legs in crash with a distracted driver and spent months in physical therapy. So now they’re inviting everyone to be in Carmen’s Ride.
“You can be on a motorcycle, on a slingshot, a car, a truck or a van,” Tina said. “As long as it’s roadworthy you can be there with us.”
This year the memorial ride is even more special because it’s on Aug. 22, which is the same date Carmen received her heavenly wings.
Whether you do Carmen’s Ride or not Tina wants everyone to help with stopping child abuse.
“The child should come first,” Tina said. “They are so dependent on us, the adults, just adults to help them.”
On Monday, July 20, 2020, the 11th Child this year was taken in Arkansas while playing in a vehicle. Her 15-month-old sister remains in critical condition.
Two days earlier, on Saturday July 18, 2020, the killer was there in Texas when the little boy climbed into the vehicle and started playing. There were no eye witnesses when the unseen stalker took the 10th Child this year.
In Kentucky, Saturday July 11, as the little girl played in the vehicle, someone had to see and know the danger, even before the 9th Child was taken.
Every one of the Children on this list lost their lives due to HEAT STROKE.
How many Children were VICTIMIZED by Child Abuse, Physical Abuse, Sexual Abuse, Mental Abuse, and/or Trafficking just this year?
Our Children are easy prey when left unsupervised and many parents mistakenly believe their Children are safe indoors.
The internet is a cesspool of perverts and pedophiles doing everything possible to lure Children to them.
Nothing can replace Parental Supervision and Quality Time. Missed Quality Time is gone forever, and can never be made-up. Good memories are easy to make and free for the making during Quality Time.
When children grow up in safe, stable, and nurturing relationships and environments, they learn empathy, impulse control, anger management and problem-solving—all skills that protect against violence.
Parents Tell Disney+ to Remove F-Word
in New Movie
The film Hamilton is now streaming on Disney+, and the movie includes another first for the streaming company – the use of the f-word along with other excessive profanity.
Hamilton, the Broadway musical turned film, was released July 3 on Disney+ and is rated PG-13.
According to a June 24 press release from Parent Television Council (PTC), Hamilton creator “Lin-Manuel Miranda confirmed that two of three “f-words” were dropped from the streaming version in order to reach the broadest audience.
The Motion Picture Association allows one ‘f-word’ to be used in PG-13-rated films… But Disney’s decision to allow even one ‘f-word’ to be heard on its Disney+ platform – a platform that bears Walt Disney’s name and that is marketed directly and primarily to millions of families with children – is shameful.”
Once again Disney is not protecting its young audiences. Also, Disney continues to be uncooperative with the Family Movie Act – legislation that would allow parents to use technology to filter and block inappropriate and explicit content in films.
Disney needs to highly reconsider the language it includes in its movies. Shame on Disney+ for allowing even one f-bomb, along with other multiple uses of profanity, to remain in the film Hamilton. It’s just too much and totally unnecessary on a streaming service for family and children.
Sign our petition to Disney CEO Bob Chapek urging him to remove the f-word from the film ‘Hamilton’ immediately. Let him know your family will not be watching this movie because dropping the f-bomb and using inappropriate language goes against your beliefs and values that you teach your children.
Executive Order on Strengthening
the Child Welfare System
for America’s Children
We opened NOT IN MY WORLD!!!! as a one-page gift to Google+ and all it’s users, on August 19, 2014, with 7 members in #OurCircle. Since that day, we have been very active in the war being waged for Our Children, and seen many Blessings.
In those first days, weeks, and possibly even months, at this point in time I think we, for the most part thought the people we were fighting was something like perverted men dressed in raincoats, standing around and flashing women and children.
I don’t mind telling this like it really is, and was… it wasn’t long before everything we read and saw hit us, and opened deep mental wounds, and assaulted all of our senses, and nothing has changed as far as that.
I can’t help but cry as I look back on all this, here we were adults having innocence ripped away from us, by what was/is done to Our Children almost every minute of every day.
It took quiet some time before we learned of Senator Nancy Schaefer, but the rest of what I list here is documented on our website or our blog, down thru January 2016.
Worse yet, the administration acknowledged that it can’t account for each of the 90,000 children it processed and released since the surge peaked in 2014.
My post on January 30, 2016 had a dead link, and I already knew this was one I enjoyed, because Senator John McCain got so upset with Mark Greenberg and CPS, that he walked out of the bipartisan congressional investigation. The article led the reader to believe that possibly 10 – 30 Children were “missing”, when the link was fixed that number had grown to 90,000+ Children.
HHS Official Jerry Milner was appointed three years ago to oversee much of the departments child welfare work.
Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar hailed the order as a step toward “bold reforms”. The goals are ambitious – curtailing child maltreatment, strengthening adoption programs and encouraging supports for at-risk families so fewer children need to be separated from their homes and placed in foster care.
Section 1. Purpose. Every child deserves a family. Our States and communities have both a legal obligation, and the privilege, to care for our Nation’s most vulnerable children.
The best foster care system is one that is not needed in the first place. My Administration has been focused on prevention strategies that keep children safe while strengthening families so that children do not enter foster care unnecessarily. Last year, and for only the second time since 2011, the number of children in the foster care system declined, and for the third year in a row, the number of children entering foster care has declined.
Sec. 2. Encouraging Robust Partnerships Between State Agencies and Public, Private, Faith-based, and Community Organizations.
Sec. 5. Improving Processes to Prevent Unnecessary Removal and Secure Permanency for Children.
(iv) Within 6 months of the date of this order, the Secretary shall provide guidance to States regarding flexibility in the use of Federal funds to support and encourage high-quality legal representation for parents and children, including pre-petition representation, in their efforts to prevent the removal of children from their families, safely reunify children and parents, finalize permanency, and ensure that their voices are heard and their rights are protected. The Secretary shall also ensure collection of data regarding State use of Federal funds for this purpose.
Sec. 6. Indian Child Welfare Act. Nothing in this order shall alter the implementation of the Indian Child Welfare Act or replace the tribal consultation process.
