The Worst Offender

It is in my opinion that this woman made a mockery of our humanity and civic laws as she was sentenced to a possible maximum of four years and eight months and will probably serve half that time in prison.  Also, I consider this case a violation of natural, universal and man made law and should have received a harsher punishment for her actions against her own biological child.

Details of the Napa Valley, California case can be read at the following:

In lew of the presidential elections process, something keeps having me think of Rick Santorum.  I don't know why but I thought he produced a list of Republican sex offenders once but I cannot find any trace of it anymore.  I may have got the name wrong.  However, with the hard work of other WWWers I found two lists, one for Republicans and the other Democrats of offenders, particularly ones who have victimized children.

For the Republican list is long but from a credible source:

For the Democrats the list is old as found on The Political Graveyard site, adjacent to the Rumormillnews:

Regardless of who's political side your on, the innnocent should be defended.

Republican or Democrat or neither, would you allow it in home or on the street?

Children And Psychiatric Medications

It is a shame when animals start to eat their own and while the field of psychiatry is often revered as a healthy entity, the truth of the matter is that it a for profit industry capitalizing on the vulnerable and now the young.  Here is a video done by the Citizen Commission on Human Rights International.  It a non profit mental health watchdog group and activists who are informed and accurate with concerns of the mental health institutions.  If in doubt of psychiatric care, please look over their site.  Despite the fact that the organization was founded by Church of Scientology, who are most popularly known from Tom Cruise's attack on Brooke Shield's use of psych meds, the message is debatable.  However, the quick fix is not to shove medications into child to pacify their behaviors, mental abilities or comprehension.  Each child should be looked at independent of doctors opinions, each should have a choice and voice on what they want and while adults in their lives need to explore other methods of coping, understanding and readjusting to their young.   

This video concerns labels children acquire and how mental health is eager to consider them/program them for a life filled with medication.

Federal Report Shows Drop In Child Abuse

In recent years, the decline of child sexual abuse has been dramatically down since the 1990's.  In the much publicized media of priest molestations and the ramifications of prosecution and civil suits, the obvious message is that it will not be tolerated by society.  The campaign against child abuse has been strong since emergence of horror stories of maltreatments.  In, they attribute the statistics of 58% decline on child sexual abuse since 1992 to 2008.  Statistics are relatively the same for child neglect as the highest form of child abuse at 78% for the newest findings reported by the federal report.  The Washington Post reflects on David Finkelhor's suggestion that the decline might be attributed to cuts in spending for investigations.

If neglect is the higher rate for child abuse, the systematic neglect of our nation's monetary state might increase these statistics as many parents are overburdened with the prospects of just putting food on their plates.  Many parents work two jobs, struggle at the grocery stores, have bills collecting and no relief in sight.  If a parent is ill equipped than the child generally suffers.  It may be an emerging trend and in my opinion many are not truthful about their own economic positions in life, perhaps living beyond their means but will the children suffer for this generations compulsions of reckless spending, from government to households.

An Era of Change

Elizabeth Smart's father, Ed had told Matt Lauer that she wants to be a voice for other victims and will pursue law school in hopes of being a prosecutor.  Shortly after the verdict was read in the trial against Brian David Mitchell, she said, "she was proof that there is life after a painful past."  With the support of her family, Elizabeth Smart has made the shift from victim to survivor.  The crime that occurred with the abduction of Elizabeth from her bedroom is rare in contrast to the numbers of children victimized by most child abusers.  As newer statistics show that about 90 % of child victims knew their perpetrators in some form or fashion.  Therefore, the other 10 percent is often the concept of random crimes and often confused with the regular violence against children.

Some child abductions have become parental custody issues, which complicates the legal proceedings for many victims of child sexual abuse as confusion in the system occurs.  Parents abusing their children with manipulation is often the undercurrent of those kids who are suffering from family sexual abuse.  National statistics have shown that CSA has declined over the years since the onset of awareness during the Eighties.  According to the National Criminal Justice Reference Service (, estimate a 40% decline since 1992 to 2000 in the article written by David Finkelhor and Lisa M. Jones.  Leaders on Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention have helped and made small strides to a now commonly known epidemic.  The researchers of the last few decades have become extremely knowledgeable and more or less have let child victims arise from the battle fields.

An article from addresses stranger abductions.  For those who want to learn about instincts in criminal confrontations, The Gift of Fear by leading securities expert, Gavin de Becker is another great resource.  Statistical information and support can also be found at The National Center for Victims of Crime website.  The first and foremost, healing must come from family or families of choice in support, for harmful secrets must come to light.  Elizabeth Smart's tribulations have been an inspiration for many others to see that truth and justice can prevail.
