Default Foster father sentenced to 30 years for shaking infant, causing herto lose sight and ability to walk

Man sentenced to 30 years for shaking infant, causing her to lose sight
and ability to walk

http://www.wacotrib.com/news/content...aby.html?imw=Y

Tuesday, February 12, 2008

By Tommy Witherspoon

Tribune-Herald staff writer

A 2-year-old Bosque County girl lost her eyesight and the ability to
walk and spent 30 days in the hospital after her foster father, Matthew
Lewis Anderson, violently shook her because she was crying.

McLennan County Assistant District Attorney Melanie Walker thinks a year
in prison for Anderson for every day the child was in the hospital was a
proper plea offer.


“Anybody who is a parent feels frustration, but most people have the
sense to just walk away,” Walker said. “He didn’t, and this little girl
suffered serious injuries.”

Anderson, 51, of Waco, pleaded guilty Monday to injury to a child with
serious bodily injury, a first-degree felony, after admitting that he
shook the child in April 2007 and told her not to cry. Judge Ralph
Strother of Waco’s 19th State District Court sentenced him to 30 years
in prison.

Anderson and his wife, Cassiopia, were caring for the child and her
infant sister as foster parents after Child Protective Services workers
removed them from a neglectful home in Bosque County, according to
reports filed in the case.

Anderson and his wife, who was not home when the shaking occurred, had
been foster parents since July 2005. They had cared for three infant
foster children before taking in the sisters, according to a Texas
Department of Family and Protective Services spokesman. They were making
plans to adopt the child before she was injured, officials said.

The other child was removed from the Anderson home and is in foster care
in the Dallas area, Walker said.

In an emotional victim-impact statement Monday, the child’s paternal
grandmother, Joanna Kanui, who is caring for the child now, held up a
photo of the young girl taken in the hospital. She told Anderson, who
began to cry, that his guilt should not be assuaged if he learns in
prison that the child’s condition has improved.

Kanui told of a recent trip to McDonald’s with the girl. Another girl,
about 3, came over and asked if she wanted to play. Kanui explained that
the girl could not see and could not walk.

“That’s OK. I’ll hold her hand,” the little girl told Kanui.

Anderson was not the only one crying in the courtroom before Kanui ended
her statement.

Waco attorney Rob Swanton, who represents Anderson, said his client has
been full of remorse about the incident.

“Mr. Anderson has been devastated by what’s happened,” Swanton said. “He
and his family, obviously, have been affected, as well as the girl’s
family. He recognizes that 30 years is a harsh sentence, but he was
willing to accept it because he knows this incident led to some very
serious injuries, and he did not want to put his family or the victim’s
family through a trial.”

Meridian attorney Phil Robertson, who represented the child during CPS
hearings, said doctors wondered if the child would survive her first day
at the hospital. He said he thinks justice was served in the case.

“It is very difficult to attract good foster parents to the system,” he
said. “It is difficult work to begin with. But CPS has given the
responsibility to several nonprofit agencies to screen applicants, and
that is probably the place where the system breaks down as far as
selection of foster parents.”

Chris Van Deusen, a spokesman for the Department of Family and
Protective Services, acknowledged Monday that the majority of foster
families are recruited and screened by other agencies.

“We are certainly pleased that the criminal justice system has worked in
this very serious case and that it has come to a conclusion,” he said.
“Fortunately, injuries due to maltreatment in foster care are extremely
rare, and we are going to continue to work to try to stop them.”

An Inconvenient Truth about Child Protective Services, Foster care, and
the Child Protection "INDUSTRY"

Child Protective Services Does not protect children...
It is sickening how many children are subject to abuse, neglect and even
killed at the hands of CPS.

every parent should read the free handbook from
connecticut dcf watch...

http://www.connecticutdcfwatch.com

Number of Cases per 100,000 children in the US
These numbers come from The National Center on
Child Abuse and Neglect in Washington. (NCCAN)
Recent numbers have increased significantly for CPS

Perpetrators of Maltreatment

Physical Abuse CPS/Foster care 160, biological Parents 59
Sexual Abuse CPS/Foster care 112, biological Parents 13
Neglect CPS/Foster care 410, biological Parents 241
Medical Neglect CPS/Foster care 14 biological Parents 12
Fatalities CPS/Foster care 6.4, biological Parents 1.5

Imagine that, 6.4 children die at the hands of the very agencies that
are supposed to protect them and only 1.5 at the hands of parents per
100,000 children. CPS perpetrates more abuse, neglect, and sexual abuse
and kills more children then parents in the United States. If the
citizens of this country hold CPS to the same standards that they hold
parents too. No judge should ever put another child in the hands of ANY
government agency because CPS nationwide is guilty of more harm and
death than any human being combined. CPS nationwide is guilty of more
human rights violations and deaths of children then the homes from which
they were removed. When are the judges going to wake up and see that
they are sending children to their death and a life of abuse when
children are removed from safe homes based on the mere opinion of a
bunch of social workers.

AMERICA'S HIDDEN HOLOCAUST

Currently Child Protective Services violates more Constitutionally
guaranteed liberties & Civil rights on a daily basis then all other
agencies combined, Including the National Security agency/Central
intelligence agency wiretaping programs…

A recent study has found that 12-18 months after leaving foster ca

30% of the nation’s homeless are former foster children.
27% of the males and 10% of the females had been incarcerated
33% were receiving public assistance
37% had not finished high school
2% receive a college degree
50% were unemployed

Children in foster care are three to six times more likely than children
not in care to have emotional, behavioral and developmental problems,
including conduct disorders, depression, difficulties in school and
impaired social relationships. Some experts estimate that about 30% of
the children in care have marked or severe emotional problems. Various
studies have indicated that children and young people in foster care
tend to have limited education and job skills, perform poorly in school
compared to children who are not in foster care, lag behind in their
education by at least one year, and have lower educational attainment
than the general population.
*Casey Family Programs National Center for Resource Family Support

80 percent of prison inmates have been through the foster care system.

The highest ranking federal official in charge of foster care, Wade Horn
of the Department of Health and Human Services, is a former child
psychologist who says the foster care system is a giant mess and should
just be blown up.

http://abcnews.go.com/print?id=2017991

Four rigorous studies have found that at least 30 percent of America’s
foster children could be home right now if their parents had decent housing.

This study found thousands of children already in foster care who would
have done better had child protection agencies not taken them away in
the first place.

Front-page story in USA Today.

The full study is available here.

http://www.mit.edu/~jjdoyle/doyle_fo...arch07_aer.pdf

The bottom line? - Child Protective Services and the Foster Care system
for the most part turns out young adults that are nothing more than
walking wreckage...

CURRENTLY CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES VIOLATES MORE CONSTITUTIONALLY
GUARANTEED LIBERTIES & CIVIL RIGHTS ON A DAILY BASIS THEN ALL OTHER
AGENCIES COMBINED INCLUDING THE NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY/CENTRAL
INTELLIGENCE AGENCY WIRETAPPING PROGRAMS....

CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES, HAPPILY DESTROYING THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT
FAMILIES YEARLY NATIONWIDE AND COMING TO YOU'RE HOME SOON...

BE SURE TO FIND OUT WHERE YOUR CANDIDATES STANDS ON THE ISSUE OF
REFORMING OR ABOLISHING CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES ("MAKE YOUR CANDIDATES
TAKE A STAND ON THIS ISSUE.") THEN REMEMBER TO VOTE ACCORDINGLY IF THEY
ARE "FAMILY UNFRIENDLY" IN THE NEXT ELECTION...

Default Foster father sentenced to 30 years for shaking infant, causingher to lose sight and ability to walk

I agree, Sometimes crazy stuff happens in fostercare. Although what
was the crazy stuff going on at home to have them takin in the first
place?
All the statistics you posted stated that children in foster care turn
out bad..well if the dam bio parents were doing the RIGHT thing (not
abusing the children, feeding them, protecting them) then these
children would not be in foster care. Therefore, the final blame rest
with the BIO-PARENTS..not anyone else. Of course fosterparents who
commit crazy acts as the one just discussed needs to be sentenced to
jail...

Just because the caseworkers pull children from their home does not
make the caseworks the bad people....they are ONLY trying to protect
them from the DANGER they face in their current home situation.

We know that you would not agree with that position, but then again you do
seem to have issues with facts dont you. Not to fear, there are more than
eough examples of **** poor parenting on both sides of the issue for
everyone. The difference is, when the parents fail to do their job the
child suffers. The same could be said for foster parents, but then again if
the parents had not failed the children would not be in care.

Is there a miniumum IQ requirement for people wanting to be Fosters?

In WHAT way are the parents responsible
for horrible child abuse at the hands OF THE SYSTEM?

The argument is really sick.

If a kid was removed for the neglect because
of a messy house, how are those parents
responsible when the kids get their heads
bashed in in foster care?

I've argued this point with Ron before. He uses a very simple logical
aproach to this issue. He thinks that if the real parents hadn't
****ed up in the first place, the kids wouldn't be in foster care and
therefore these horrible things wouldn't have happened to them while
in foster care. Right Ron?

His view is kind of like knocking down that first domino, if the first
one hadn't been knocked over, the last one wouldn't have fallen so
it's all the first ones fault. The original **** up of the real
parents causes everything else to happen like a chain reaction, so Ron
feels that the real parents are to blame for setting off the chain
reacition, and that makes everything that happens to the kid while in
care the responsibility of the real parents.

You must be unaware that children can be removed to foster care not
because of abuse or neglect... but because of the potential for abuse
or neglect.

And at least one state can remove children because someone files a
petition that the parent or parents are overwhelmed by caring for
their children.
