Default omg this is a horrid story

I just came across this,

this is horrible

http://sympaticomsn.ctv.ca/servlet/A...entence_060611

"But the couple will be eligible to apply to have their sentences lowered after just 15 years."

This isn't justice. this youngster had its whole life ahead.

"After last month's verdict, Ontario's chief coroner announced an inquest will be held, which will look into how the system failed to protect Jeffrey and the involvement of the CCAS."

"It is alleged the CCAS did not do a background check on the grandparents prior to the placement. Each of them has previous child abuse convictions."

if this is so, its time for this agency to wake up.

Wow!! The kid never stood a chance. Abusive parents, abusive grandparents... I hope someone is looking out for his sister, but she'll probably just get lost in the system again.

Paralegal_Speshell69 is on a distinguished road
Default It is only one case of many

I am a paralegal student I am 37 years old and was a victim of domestic violence for a period of around 8 years. I had a very abusive spouse and so I have followed both child abuse cases and cases of spousal abuse and death I wrote two important speeches on these topics. One was limited in time to 5 minutes so it could only touch briefly on the topic the other was 20 minutes and you would be shocked to hear the amount of infant deaths in Ontario at the hand of a loved one and that of a "wife". In London Ontario this month alone two women ages 33 and 29 died at the hands of their partners, the thirty three year old women burned to death in her bedroom in the house her partner started on fire, and the 29 year old women died from stab wounds by an x partner who was ordered by the court to stay away from her. Also in that same week a 12 year old and a 15 year old died along side their father in an automobile accident which the police ruled a " double murder," "Suicide" honestly if the sick man chose to take his own life thats one thing but he had appeared in court earlier that month for uttering death threats to his wife the mother of the children, every one said he was a good dad but he carried out his threats. These cases are growing and increasing and as they grow and increase I fee that people should petition the courts for tougher sentencing. I have attached a copy of my speech if any one is interested in reading it I can only attach part 1 as that is the allowable amount, however if any one is interested in the rest I will attached it to another post titled part two.

I took this paralegal course not because I wanted to be a "wanna be lawyer" but so that I could gain some personal knowlege on the laws and hopefully one day make a difference where laws related to child abuse and domestic violence are concerned. Thanks for reading Shell

There are HUGE problems with child protection agencies and is it just me or does it seem that they take protecting children from intact marriages more seriously than in cases where the parents are getting divorced? Here in Calgary if you call Children's Services one of the questions they ask right up front is "are you in the middle of divorce proceedings"... ARGH!!

Sean,

I would think the reason for that being is typical of most government agencies, they are short staffed and overloaded. They have insufficient resources to fully investigate every complaint and it may be somewhat of a screening process.

That's true LV, but that makes you wonder how many cases of abuse are overlooked due to the automatic assumption that a party going through a separation or divorce is making their complaint out of spite.

Shell,

That was an excellent speech, thank you for sharing it.

Here's another horrific story:

Lindsay,

How true, if you are going through a separation/divorce too often abuse is swept under the carpet and not taken seriously. You get into the whole "false allegation" issues. Who wants to admit they are an abuser, easier to hide behind the "ex made it up to gain in the upper hand in court".

Lindsay,

I agree. these agencies need more resources, whether its people and funding to investigate completely.

Grace,

That is horrible. The ironic thing is the leniant sentence the people received in my eyes. Those boys spent a good portion of their life in a cage and in diapers.

Paralegal_Speshell69, that's a fabulous speech. Please do upload the rest.

If you want, I can put this on a separate part of the site as well, with proper attribution to you, as otherwise it will get buried over time and an attachment isn't going to show up when someone uses the search function.
