|No Wonder There Isn’t a Stronger Outcry About the Missing Boy
Posted: 22 Aug 2009 09:16 AM PDT
The Oakland Tribune’s Tammerlin Drummond complained in a piece yesterday that people weren’t out searching for 5-year-old Hasanni Campbell, who allegedly went missing in Rockridge, suggesting that it was because the boy isn’t white. Drummond also argued that there was no evidence to suspect Campbell’s foster father was involved in the child’s disappearance. But of course, there has been ample reason to suspect the foster father from early on in the case, and now there’s even more. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, newly released court documents show that Louis Ross threatened to abandon the child just ten days before the boy supposedly went missing.
The foster father of a missing 5-year-old with cerebral palsy reportedly sent an expletive-laden text threatening to leave the child alone on a BART platform just 10 days before the boy disappeared.

“When (the girl) and her parents counted on police and the justice system to deal with her case in a fair and just manner, they failed … repeatedly,” Bob Hughes with SCAR said on Friday. “When she and her parents counted on social services to help keep her safe and protected in their care, they were failed again. In fact, the Ministry of Social Services has been this family’s worst nightmare.”
The young woman told those gathered at the rally that she was lied to by workers and some foster parents who said her parents didn’t care about her. The girl’s aunt added her concern that no one has ever gone to jail for the assault, alleging that little has been done to rectify it.
