In Today’s Paper Here in South Florida

The Tribune:

” Foster Parents arrested, charged with child abuse.”

“Two foster parents have been arrested and charged with child abuse involving children in their care, the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office said.

Joseph Hogan 50, and Patricia Hogan, 42 of the 4700 block of 29th Ave., Vero Beach, were being held in lieu of $250,000 bail each at the Indian River County Jail.

The Hogans became foster parents for the chidlren in August, according to their affidavits.

A Sheriff’s dective began investigating abuse allegations on April 9 after the Department of Children and Families contacted the Sheriff’s Office. The foster children include a 2- year old girl, a 3 year old boy and a girl whose age was not specified in the warrant affidavit.

Investigators said they found scratches and bruising on the boy’s body, including some on his groin area. One of the girls also had bruises all over body, including her inner buttocks, the affidavit states.”

Just one more case of children being abused in foster care. When will the madness stop.
This brings me to my next point. Today Samantha was told that Carly the baby who is five is having issues with bitting and scratching because she knows now that her dad is in prison. Samantha was also told that Carly had broken her arm jumping on pillows. At least that is the story that was told by Donna Webb the foster care provider. There is a question to that begs to be asked, Carly was told on Monday that her dad was in prison today Samantha is told that she is having issues and has a broken arm. Sounds fishy to me. There should be an investigation. But will there be. I seriously doubt it. However, when Shawna stuck her hand in a bowl of hot noodles before she could be stopped, DFCS was called quick fast and in a hurry. Injustice? I report you decide.
