We hear it in homes, in grocery stores, and in schools. We hear it in public parks and on playgrounds. Sometimes we even hear it in churches. What is it? Constantly yelling at children! Is it necessary? Is it an effective form of discipline or is it damaging to children?
Note: More psychobabble from the spanking police.
|Balloon Boy family lawyer David Lane: Child-abuse-investigation release breaks the lawPosted: 26 Oct 2009 07:31 AM PDT
David Lane, attorney for Balloon Boy dad Richard Heene, says he doesn’t have enough fingers to plug all the info leaks coming from the office of Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden. On Friday, Alderden released documents showing that Mayumi Heene, Mrs. Balloon Boy, had confessed that the whole runaway balloon tale had been cooked up for publicity purposes two weeks before it happened. It was a move guaranteed to get under a defense lawyer’s skin, and it certainly did in this case. “It’s clear that the sheriff is intent on getting this family convicted in the press,” Lane says.

|Foster Kids Allege ‘Unthinkable’ Abuses: Parents Allegedly Housed Them in CagesPosted: 26 Oct 2009 05:26 AM PDT
Two teen-agers say their foster parents locked them and nine other children in cages and subjected them to “heinous abuse,” and placement agencies and county officials should have known it. The parents made $100,000 a year as foster parents – the father quit his job, saying, “These kids pay well” – while they locked one boy in a cage for 30 days “around the clock,” made him stay in a bathroom for 81 days, and subjected the kids to “unthinkable” abuse, according to the complaint.
|Kay Henson (spanking mom)Posted: 26 Oct 2009 05:24 AM PDT
This is an emergency notification regarding yet another arrest and incarceration of Kay Henson by her probation officer in the Walworth County jail. Kay is on probation because she spanked her ten year old son with her hand and was charged with felony child abuse. Upon the advice of counsel, she pled guilty to simple battery and was placed on probation (yes, she regrets it). PO Eileen has repeatedly violated Kay’s probation for specious reasons unrelated to the terms of her probation for the retaliatory purposes of throwing Kay in jail. Kay is nursing her infant daughter, and each time she is incarated, county jail officials refuse to provide her with a breast pump to prevent breast engorgement, mastitis and infection.
