Woman acquitted of charge she attacked DCFS worker

URBANA – An Urbana woman accused of battering a Department of Children
and Family Services child protective investigator was acquitted of those
charges Thursday.

A jury deliberated about four hours before acquitting Patrice
Moore-Williams, 34, who listed an address in the 1100 block of
Briarcliff Drive, of two counts of aggravated battery for a Jan. 10
attack on DCFS worker Pam Wendt.


Testimony in the two-day trial before Judge Heidi Ladd was that Wendt
and co-worker Sheree Foley went to the home of Moore-Williams after
receiving a report from an Urbana police officer that the six children
there might be in danger. The women explained they are required to check
out such reports within 24 hours of receiving them.

The women first went to the home on Jan. 8 and made contact with Donald
Williams, 43, who told them his wife and children were not home.

Foley testified they later learned that Moore-Williams and the children
were in a back bedroom. Foley described Williams as "very angry and
intimidating" and that his actions caused her and Wendt to leave, saying
they'd return the next day to check on the children.

The next morning, Foley said Williams again told the DCFS workers that
his wife and children were gone.

On Jan. 10, the workers went to the house with Urbana police to check on
the children, ages 3 to 13.

The check turned into a brawl among five Urbana police officers and
Williams, while his wife, the six children and the two DCFS workers were
all crowded into a narrow hallway trying to get the children out of the
small house.

One of the children jumped on the back of a police officer and another
bit Foley, according to testimony.

Wendt testified that during the melee, Moore-Williams came up behind
her, grabbed her left hand and torqued her arm upward behind her back.
Wendt said she had to have surgery on her shoulder and still feels the
effects, she said.

In her defense, Moore-Williams denied that she touched Wendt and
suggested Wendt, a 10-year DCFS employee, was making up the encounter to
collect workman's compensation.

Her attorney, Assistant Public Defender Janie Miller-Jones, argued that
none of the adults present saw Moore-Williams, who was nine months
pregnant, touch Wendt.

Assistant State's Attorney Troy Lozar countered that was understandable
given the chaos that was going on with nine adults and six children in a
small area. Wendt, he said, was certain it was Moore-Williams who
grabbed her and he argued that she had no motive to lie.

Donald Williams was also charged with aggravated battery to a peace
officer and resisting arrest in connection with the incident but was
found unfit to stand trial in March and is currently in a Department of
Human Services facility.

His case is set for an Aug. 11 review.








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.

THIS IS 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…

Adoption Bonuses: The Money Behind the Madness
DSS and affiliates rewarded for breaking up families
By Nev Moore Massachusetts News

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.

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...
