The US Department of Justice Asks for Information On DC Corruption Like That Behind the Case of Ariana-Leilani

What Mayor Gray and his administration do not understand is that the more the protective parent raises concerns, the more barriers are placed in-between her and her children. Case-in-point: the ongoing case of Dr. Ariel King and her daughter, Ariana-Leilani (see attached the You Tube video for an update).

Like too many other children, Ariana-Leilani’s life has turned into a race – will justice prevail and Ariana-Leilani get the medical treatment she so desperately needs or will she end up paying the ultimate price for corruption?Sound outrageous and unbelievable?

If you were in the survivor’s shoes, what would you do? Explain all this to authorities? What happens when the authorities ARE the problem? When survivors turn to local remedies, they’re listened to UNTIL the offender’s names are revealed: Judge X, Custody Evaluator Y, Attorney Z. When the issues and concerns of the victim-survivors are ignored, marginalized or buried and business goes on as usual – or perhaps with a retaliatory spin – that’s called CORRUPTION and last I knew, corruption was a CRIME. (Last I knew too, a crime is a crime no matterwho commits it!) and THIS is what the US Department of Justice (DOJ) wants to hear about.

If you or someone you know has been affected by this family court crisis or experienced systemic corruption in a family court-related case — particularly in the District of Columbia — please check out the instructions for submitting a complaint to the DOJ here:

Be Aware of the Prevalence of Abuse (Day 3 of 19 Days of Activism)

Day 3 of 19 Days of Activism for the Prevention of Sexual Abuse and Neglect:

Ariana-Leilani 1Selected facts and figures (UN sources)

  • As many as 150 million girls and 73 million boys worldwide are raped or subject to sexual violence each year, usually by someone in their family circle
  • Between 133 and 275 million children annually are estimated to witness domestic violence. Violence in the family, in the form of harsh punishment, is common in both industrialized and developing countries. Children in all regions have reported the physical and psychological hurt they suffer at the hands of their parents and caregivers
  • Corporal punishment, such as beating and caning is standard practice in schools in a large number of countries, and is often responsible for school drop-outs
  • Between 20 and 65 percent of school-age children report having been verbally or physically bullied • 126 million children and youth are involved in hazardous work, often enduring beatings, humiliation and sexual violence by their employers • Between 80 and 100 million girls are ‘missing’ from the world’s population – victims of gender-based infanticide, foeticide, malnutrition and neglect
  • 1.2 million children are trafficked each year
  • Institutionalized children – whether in orphanages or detention facilities – are at particular risk of violence from the staff responsible for their care, including torture, beatings, isolation, restraints, rape and harassment
  • People who are part of their lives perpetrate the majority of violent acts against children: parents, teachers, schoolmates, employers, and caregivers. In only 29 States has all violence against children been prohibited, leaving the vast majority of the world’s child population without adequate legal protection from violence
  • Violence against children extracts extraordinary costs to society, and is linked to lifelong social and health problems, including post-traumatic stress disorder; depression; antisocial and aggressive behaviors; substance abuse; lung, heart, and liver disease; impaired academic and work performance; problematic peer relations; and greater involvement with the criminal justice system.

Ariana-Leilani Has Suffered from Five Years of Abuse and Neglect, But DC Officials Refuse to Protect Her (Day 2 of 19 Days of Activism)

Desmond Tutu Ariana-Leilani 1

Ariana-Leilani and Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu

Day 2 of 19 Days of Activism for the Prevention of Sexual Abuse and Neglect: It is time for the District of Columbia to stop protecting those that abuse and neglect children in the District of Columbia and ignore the human rights of its children.   Ariana-Leilani has been subject to abuse and neglect for five years, test results evidence her being given drugs that can cover up abuse and cause her severe chronic neutropenia.  But the District of Columbia has knowingly allowed her to be subject to such severe abuse and neglect, but has chosen to cover it up rather than protect her.  Unless she is given relief, she is likely to die.

After Five years, Washington DC Government Has Done Nothing to Help Ariana-Leilani

Vince Gray 10

Click to read the 2011 Letter to Mayor Vince Gray About Ariana-Leilani’s Plight

Ariana-Leilani lives in the Palisades Section, Ward 3, of Washington DC.   When the German government wrote to the US State Department begging them to come to the aid of Ariana-Leilani, the US State Department turned that request over the the District of Columbia because the US State Department believed that the District of Columbia had the authority to take action. Despite the fact that Ariana-Leilani goes to the Francis Scott Key School (Dana Place) in the DC Public School system, Washington DC — under the “leadership” of Mayor Vince Gray — has refused to take any action claiming itself to be a toothless tiger — claiming it lacked authority to do anything. (Read the letter to Mayor Vince Gray Concerning the plight of Ariana-Leilani)

Mayor Gray’s regrettable attitude has made many sorry they supported his election to the post of Mayor.   Washington DC has, unfortunately, become a cesspool of child abuse, with a CPS that is so incompetent that it has been under federal court monitor for over 20 years, and has been run by individuals, like Roque Gerald and James Toscano, with sex offense records.image of graph
