“Medical Child Abuse”—Be Careful What You Post

Originally posted on On SBS:

bubby&familypngWhat started out as a feel-good story about the kindness of strangers has turned into a CPS nightmare for a family in the Pacific northwest, where doctors at Seattle Children’s Hospital have accused Thomas Everson and his wife Brandi McNerny Everson of exaggerating their son’s disabilities and subjecting him to unnecessary medical care. The diagnosis has several names, including “medical child abuse” and “caretaker-inflicted illness.”

The tale started in February, when the family issued an on-line request asking people to send their special-needs son “Bubby” a card for his ninth birthday, maybe with some stickers inside, because Bubby loves opening mail, especially when he finds stickers inside. Bubby lives with both physical and mental impairments, the long-term effects of a virus he contracted in utero, which makes it congenital Cytomegalovirus or CMV.

The family’s request for mail went viral and Bubby received thousands of birthday cards, a development that led to even…

This is how Child Protective Services has gotten away with so much injustice for so long, in so many places – LACK OF TRANSPARENCY! There are good people who care, even in the system, just like there are good obstetrician and good cops. But the secrecy that shrouds the Family Court System endangers families everywhere. Where there is such secrecy, corruption is free to breed. Where parents are silenced, evil is allowed to continue. If their deeds are exposed to the light, then they have to actually follow the Constitution and the law. This is the…

Captain Andre Jackson is in charge of the Clayton Co pound in GA where approximately 60 dogs were killed on Monday after some dogs sneezed:

CBS46 asked Clayton County animal control officials what kind of contagious illness prompted the latest action.

Jackson said, “We can’t determine at this time, but we had an increase in animals that came into the shelter, and they began to exhibit some signs of runny nose, coughing, and sneezing.”

Interestingly, when the reporter tried to press for answers, he was told he’d have to file a FOIA request, which he did.  So basically they don’t know what the sneezing was about or if they do, they aren’t going…

The dog without a nose: Local rescue saves pit bull

Originally posted on WPMT FOX43:

DILLSBURG, Pa.– Meet Mona- she’s a pit-bull mix who’s been through a lot.

Mona is a potential bait dog who was rescued from Philadelphia earlier this week by Janine Guido of Speranza Animal Rescue.

“I bawled, I called my boyfriend crying. I’ve heard of horror stories, but I’ve never seen one, especially so close to home, only two hours from here,” Guido said. “Her nose was pretty much torn off, and then the whole side of her face back to behind her teeth, the skin’s gone and she has some punctures up there all over her chest.”

Guido said she didn’t know what to expect but knew pit bulls are typically resilient. “I thought she might be a little timid, but she came down the hallway, tail wagging and just jumped right into my lap.”

Upon being rescued, Mona was brought to Dillsburg Animal Hospital where Dr. Ivan Pryor is…

I have known Kennedy’s mother, Dawn, for a couple of years now and I met her whole family earlier this year on my way through Southern California. Kennedy’s parents are two of my favorite parents of all-time. They are mother-effing warriors, I tell you.  We should all aspire to be so strong.

They have worked very hard to manage their daughter’s seizure disorder without pharmaceutical drugs (which were failing her) by providing her with the healthiest, most nutritious foods available. They have left their home state to allow Kennedy to live on the water where allergy pollen is…

The normal chain of events thereafter would be the traumatized children, farmed out to foster care after being ripped from their home and family, would languish in the system for years to come, while the parents jumped through hoola hoops every waking moment of their lives to get them back.  Often times these children would be permanently adopted out to strangers despite parents doing everything they knew to keep their own children, and remain in their lives, in a hopeless battle against the taxpayer funded Goliath that had other plans, and all the power. 

In every case across the country where children are taken by the state, there is a mandatory hearing a few days after the children have been kidnapped, where the…

They didn’t know his name, but cautioned shelters and pet owners to be on high alert.

Animal Control officers in Marion were also warning about dog fighters who forced dogs to fight in the trunks of cars.

Officer Becky Blundell said abusers will drive until the noise from the trunk stopped and either one or both of the dogs was dead.

Blundell said people like the man looking for bait dogs online was the reason the Marion Shelter does background checks on anyone adopting an animal.

She said pet owners also have to be watchful for dog thieves.

“Keep an eye on your pet. Identification tags are always necessary,” she said.

11th Hour for Arizona’s Wild Burros

Time is short; comments must be received by 5pm May 2, 2015 at BLM_AZ_KFOweb.@blm.gov or cbenson@blm.gov

The burros have never had it easy with our government agencies. The fox is guarding the hen house when it comes to protections for this nation’s icons of our pioneering past. They are symbols of our culture and living natural icons of our pioneering history. Yet, our own governmental agency which is tasked with protecting our wild burros and horses, because of this important connection to our past, is cavalierly managing them to extinction without remorse.

MANSFIELD, Ohio- A local family is speaking out after a federal marshal shot their dog at their house Wednesday night.

Destiny Harvey said her dog Shady, a 3-year-old Labrador-Mastiff mix, was shot in the neck by a U.S. Marshal with the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force. Marshals were inquiring about the whereabouts of a fugitive on South Foster Street in Mansfield.

“They said he charged them, but I doubt he did that.  He just barks a lot,” Harvey said.

Harvey said her 13-year-old brother answered the front door.

“He said the cops came and knocked on the door, and asked him to put the dogs out. He put one dog that can’t walk very well into my mom’s room.  And then he let the other dog out back, not knowing there were officers in the back yard,” Harvey said.

According to Pete Elliot with the U.S…
