Congressional Briefing on the Failure of Family Courts, Placing Children with Abusive Parents

Dr. Joy Silberg and Others Expose Corrupt Practices of the Family Courts in Abuse Cases

  • 75 percent of all contested custody cases involve abuse of children
  • Court’s fail to recognize the rights of children to live free of abuse
  • Epidemic across the United States
  • Visit http://www.courageouskids.net 
  • It takes on average 5 years to turn around abuse cases
  • Learn about actual cases where abusive parents were given custody and they ultimately killed the child — even when the abusive parent was not the birth parent of the child
  • Turn about occurs most often when a new evaluation is done by a qualified evaluators
  • CPS findings were irrelevant to the outcome
  • The GALs almost exclusively signed with the abusive parent
  • CPS agencies teach their social workers to discount the evidence of abuse when there is a custody dispute
  • Its about the rights of the child, not about the rights of the parents.
  • Abuse is in the news every day; many criminal activities are carried out by children who were abused — we are all affected.
  • Costs 500 billion dollars per year in taxpayer money

Law Enforcement Closing In On Washington DC Area Child Porn Producers and Abusers (Day 15 of 19 Days of Activism Against Child Abuse)

Washington DC is a cesspool for child porn producers and abusers.   It has much to do with the dysfunctional local government, and the predisposition to cover for those in power who perpetrate these crimes.   They are found not only in positions of power, but also in schools and in the police force.

In the latest take down, a former private school teacher added to the FBI’s list of most wanted fugitives during five years on the run has been charged in Washington’s federal court with producing child pornography.   Prosecutors filed a criminal information charging Eric Justin Toth with child pornography, identity theft and misuse of a Social Security number.   An information is a charging document that typically signifies that a guilty plea is near. Both sides have said that they were negotiating a plea agreement. A U.S. Attorney’s office spokesman declined comment Thursday.   Toth was captured in Nicaragua in April and returned to Washington to face federal charges. He’d been on the run since 2008, when he was fired from his teaching job at the Beauvoir School after being confronted about images of child pornography.

Also, a former D.C. police officer has been convicted of sexually abusing a girl who participated in his church choir. A Superior Court jury convicted 45-year-old Wendel Palmer of numerous offenses.  Prosecutors say that Palmer directed the girl in a choir at a D.C. church that she her and her family attended and which his family ran. Authorities say the abuse began when the victim was 10 or 11 years old, and occurred at the church during breaks in choir rehearsals and other places.  The victim reported the abuse after she turned 18.

Those who are exploiting and abusing children like Ariana-Leilani ultimately will be caught and prosecuted.  Help fight child abuse in the United States, sign the petition to save 10 year old Ariana-Leilani and the fight for children’s rights to be protected:

Porn Probe: 341-people Arrested by Police (Day 14 of 19 Days of Activism Against Child Abuse)

Child Pornography

341 people, including 108 Canadians and 76 Americans, have been arrested in an international child pornography ring that was largely centred around a Toronto-based film company that distributed images and videos across the globe.  The three-year investigation included Canadian and international law enforcement agencies and rescued. Dubbed Project Spade, police said the effort resulted in 386 children being saved from exploitation.

Police first became aware in 2010 that Toronto-based Azov Films was distributing pornographic images and videos of children as well as streaming them on its website.   In 2011, police carried out a search warrant in Toronto’s west end. Azov was shut down and its owner, 42-year-old Brian Way was arrested. More than 45 terabytes of data were seized.

Way was charged with multiple counts related to child pornography, including selling and distributing child pornography and instructing commission of offence for criminal organization.

The company had been operating since 2005 and had revenues in excess of $4-million.   For approximately $40 customers could buy about an hour of video, and receive photos at a discount, delivered online or by mail, police say.

Some of the children exploited in the films were as young as five.  Azov commissioned videographers around the world to take pictures and images that the company would subsequently distribute through the mail and online. Many of the victims were from Ukraine and Romania.  Many of the pictures and videos were shot in people’s apartments, back yards and “dingy saunas.”

24 Canadian children were rescued as a result of Project Spade.  The children were not necessarily involved in the production of Azov material, and their exploitation was discovered when police were investigating people who bought material from the company.

At the home of a retired teacher, they found 350,000 pictures and more than 9,000 video showing child sexual abuse. They say some of the children were known to the man, who is also accused of abusing a child in his family.  Spinoff investigations led to caches of images and hundreds of children from around the world.  At least two teachers and nine medical professionals were among the Canadians arrested.

Beaven-Desjardins said Toronto police subsequently shared the company’s customer databases with other Canadian as well as international law enforcement agencies.

Information on Azov led to more than 150 law enforcement actions against Americans who were purchasing material from the company, including persons in the District of Columbia.

Project Spade arrests by the numbers

  • Ontario: 50
  • Rest of Canada: 58
  • United States: 76
  • International: 164

In Canada:

  •  40 teachers
  •  9 doctors and nurses
  •  32 volunteers
  •  6 law enforcement personnel
  •  9 faith leaders
  •  3 foster parents

FBI seeks tips on suspected child predator (Day 13 of 19 Days of Activism)

The FBI is asking the public to help them identify a man suspected of sexually exploiting a child.   The man is engaged in sexually explicit activities with a child in photographs and videos that have been circulating numerous child pornography forums on the Internet since April.   Images show the suspect and the victim inside a home with a distinct plaid chair, according to the FBI, and male pattern baldness on the back of his head and a ring on his right hand may also help someone may recognize him.  He appears to be white, possibly in his 40’s or 50’s, with dark hair and dark eyes, and based on audio from the video, authorities believe he may have referred to himself as “Jimmy.”

Anyone with information may submit a tip online at https://tips.fbi.gov/ or call the FBI’s toll-free tip line at 1-800-CALL-FBI.

Rings such as these are operating in the District of Columbia, often involving persons in power who are being protected by the District of Columbia govenment.

With the Help of ICE and Protect, Military Vets Turn Their Sights On Child Sexual Abusers (Day 7 of 19 Days of Activism)

ActionNews2

Former U.S. Marine Jeremy Boutwell, is now assigned now to work with ICE in metro Atlanta. “I’ve seen some pretty bad things that humanity is capable of doing in certain situations.”   He added, “This stuff is worse, without a doubt.”

He is one of many vets now trained to hunt for clues about “where these acts of child rape are videoed.” He related that, even before training was completed, one of the wounded warriors, Army Reserve Capt. Hampton Culp, helped break a case that led to the rescue of a child whose abuse had been broadcast online.

“To take bad guys off the street, to serve my country and to protect my children, your children and other children– I mean, truly if there was something that the Lord intended for me to do, it would be to do this job,” Agent David Westall said.   The wounded warriors will be on a 10-month internship, but ICE hopes those internships become full-time jobs. Nicholson confirmed that of the 17 fanned out across the country, four will be in Georgia.

The wounded warriors will be on a 10-month internship, but ICE hopes those internships become full-time jobs. Nicholson confirmed that of the 17 fanned out across the country, four will be in Georgia.

“I think that what you have is one of the best child exploitation efforts coming from Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Atlanta, and in the region,” said Camille Cooper from the National Association to Protect Children—called “Protect” for short. She called Nicholson “one of the best in the country.”  But also, she added, “You have a concentration of child pornography leads in urban areas. You know, where there’s high-speed Internet you are going to find concentrations of perpetrators. It doesn’t mean that they don’t exist in rural areas.”

The wounded warrior initiative is an unusual joint project between ICE and Protect. Cooper said the non-profit can bring corporate support and other things to the table that ICE, as a government agency, cannot solicit. She said that’s especially important in these lean economic times.   “There are children literally that are waiting,” “They’re waiting and every night they go to bed and they pray. They pray to God and they say, ‘God, please come save me from this hell. Please rescue me. Please make this stop.’”  Cooper says not all participants nationwide had combat wounds. She says some of them suffered other illnesses or injuries while serving.
