Default Accused social worker remains on payroll

Accused social worker remains on payroll

The Missouri Department of Social Services said Wednesday that a social
worker accused of regularly smoking marijuana with a Granby couple in
their foster home remains an employee of the state at this time.

Nova G. Propes, 44, a caseworker with the Children’s Division of the
department, was charged Monday in Newton County Circuit Court with two
counts of misdemeanor child endangerment.

A probable-cause affidavit filed with the court states that she is
believed to have smoked marijuana with foster parents Wayne Anthony
O’Neal Sr., 32, and Christel J. O’Neal, 29, on several occasions in the
master bedroom of the O’Neals’ home at 225 E. Newton St. in Granby
during in-home visits with one or more of the foster children living there.

Ana Compain-Romero, communications director for the state department,
said Propes has worked for the Children’s Division since 2000. Other
than to confirm that Propes remains an employee of the division, she
said she could not discuss the caseworker’s employment status because of
departmental policies governing personnel matters.

“Obviously, we don’t tolerate this type of behavior in our employees,”
Compain-Romero said. “If these allegations prove to be true, the
severest personnel action will be taken.”

The O’Neals also were charged with two counts each of misdemeanor child
endangerment. No arrests were made. Summonses were issued instead after
charges were filed.

Propes is scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 17. The O’Neals’ arraignments
are set for Sept. 4.

The probable-cause affidavit states that 10 children were living in the
home during the time frame in early August on which the charges are
based. Eight of the children were foster children, and two were the
O’Neals’ children. Three of the foster children were on temporary
placements in the home, according to the Newton County Sheriff’s Department.

Chief Deputy Chris Jennings of the Sheriff’s Department said seven
children — five foster children and both of the O’Neals’ children — were
removed from the home this week.

Wayne O’Neal was convicted last year on misdemeanor bad-check and theft
charges. He was assessed a fine in one conviction, and a suspended
imposition of sentence and probation on the other.

Compain-Romero said she did not know whether the Children’s Division was
aware of those convictions. She said criminal background checks are
conducted before the licensing of foster parents and with each two-year
renewal of their licenses.

The O’Neals received their foster-parenting license in October 2005,
before Wayne O’Neal’s arrests and convictions. They would be due for
another background check this fall if they seek a renewal.


Foster-home numbers

Ana Compain-Romero, communications director for Missouri Department of
Social Services, said 23 foster children had been placed in the home at
one time or another since Wayne and Christel O’Neal received their
license in 2005.





CURRENTLY CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES VIOLATES MORE CIVIL RIGHTS ON A
DAILY BASIS THEN ALL OTHER AGENCIES COMBINED INCLUDING THE NSA / CIA
WIRETAPPING PROGRAM....

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

every parent should read this .pdf from
connecticut dcf watch...

http://www.connecticutdcfwatch.com/8x11.pdf

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 160, Parents 59
Sexual Abuse CPS 112, Parents 13
Neglect CPS 410, Parents 241
Medical Neglect CPS 14 Parents 12
Fatalities CPS 6.4, 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.


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...
