We had a 5 minute interview with a social worker where my sister and I both lied. Said, no there wasn't any abuse. We were terrified of being separated from each other as well as what would happen to us if we told and then went back home. Before the interview our mother coached us and told us if we told we would never see her or each other again and we would go into foster care.

The system sucks. We of course never heard from cps again after that and the abuse continued.

Gingerjenny, I am so sorry for your pain and confusion. That just breaks my heart... :cry:

When will we start taking trash like this out of society ourselves... I am sick to death of reading these heart breaking stories. If even uncivilized societies do not "allow" abuse like this to happen, why the hell do the people of this community allow it to happen????

MISHAWAKA — A severe abuse case involving a 1-year-old Mishawaka boy who was hospitalized earlier this week has prompted an investigation by both police and the Indiana Department of Child Services.According to the reporting officer, the toddler’s facial injuries resembled that of a child involved in an injury accident and were the worst the officer had seen on a 1-year-old as a police officer.Mishawaka Police responded to an area hospital early Thursday morning and met with the boy and DCS, which had already been contacted.Besides injuries to the cheek area, left ear and neck, there appeared to be bruising on the toddler¿s face, forehead, hair line, back, both legs, his buttocks and near his genitals, according to a police report.The boy¿s genitals were so swollen doctors ran tests to see if he had sustained any permanent damage to his reproductive system, the police report said. Doctors also scanned him for head trauma.His condition is unknown.It is unclear exactly how the boy was injured. The St. Joseph County Family Violence/Special Victims Unit is reviewing the case. A 2-year-old in the home told police that she was hit daily on the buttocks, head and hands.The boy¿s uncle, who sometimes watched the toddler at night while the mother worked, told police the child had no injuries when he put him to bed on July 13. When he woke up the next day, the man noticed bruising, according to the report.He said the toddler¿s mother had been fired from her job on July 13 and appeared drunk that night, according to a police report.The boy¿s mother reportedly told the grandmother that when the toddler woke up on the morning of July 14, she noticed skin discoloration on the face, which the grandmother believed was eczema, according to the police report.The grandmother, who has watched the boy several days recently, told police that she noticed a scratch on the boy on Tuesday and dark facial discoloration, prompting her to call a local clinic for an appointment.The boy was taken to the clinic Wednesday. However, staff there told the grandmother to take the boy to a hospital for immediate treatment, according to the police report.A spokeswoman for the Indiana Department of Child Services could not provide details of the case since it is still an active investigation. A Mishawaka police detective could not be reached late Friday for comment.Names and locations are being withheld to protect the identity of the toddler.Staff writer Tom Moor:tmoor@sbtinfo.com574-235-6234

The toddler needs protection from his own caregivers, not identity protection. Release the name of his abusers; and save these childrens lives or it will be yet another Sturgis case. The "family stories" already seem to have a very familiar ring to them.

Because this is a society of laws, and not one of mob passions? So let’s say the names of all involved are made public -- what then? You and a few of your buddies go there and kill everyone at that address? Then the surviving relatives of those people killed either get a lead as to your identity, and come gunning for you and your relatives, or just resort to murdering some arbitrary caucasians who to them might represent you and your cohorts?

We do “take out the trash” “ourselves” -- thru jury trial comprised of members of this local community, or plea bargaining engaged in by (I believe) elected court officials such as prosecutors and judges (correct me if I’m wrong on that last point).
