Thank you All for your help. I am the Uncle of this child and the one that is holding him in the video. Please help us save these children as the system is not helping us at all! The proof is there, we have hired lawyers to help these children and will continue to do everything until they are safe.

This would not happen in my city as Child Protective Services and Adult Protective Services would protect the child to the fullest.

And by those placing the child BACK into his abusive family, WTF? We are doomed as a civilization if not every soul learning of this horror is compelled to act! I would take this child in a heartbeat, animals do not treat each other the way humans treat their own!

Just received this e-mail correspondance back from B.A.C.A, I think this is a huge step. If you have some free time and would like to type up a letter of what's going on to them, I would appreciate it. I am doing the same but just wanted everyone to remain informed. I am hoping to get the evidence supporting this case in front of the judge for an emergency custody hearing on Monday. I can only hope and pray. For those of you not watching the facebook thread, the father, " The one the mother said to the child that would not be coming around" is at the house right now with them and when I found out and called for a wellness check, the Eau Claire police department refused to dispatch for a wellness check.


Hi Jason.

Honestly, figuring out what's going on from a Facebook page is rather difficult.

If I understand correctly, these children are still resident with their abuser? What form of abuse is going on? Have the police and social services been contacted? What assistance do you believe BACA can provide?

I need this info to even consider what (if any)help we can be.

Love and Respect

There has to be no tolerance of those who would hurt a child because they are unable to protect themselves. If a child tells someone that they are being abused, action must be taken because children are too precious to ignore.

There is a law on the books in 48 States that demand the child be reunited with the birth mother, even when they are abusive, or on drugs:(
Everychildmatters.org STATS say that 5000 children are killed by their own parents each year in the USA and this is a global problem. Children under the age of 12 have no voice,, LAWS NEED TO BE CHANGED

Anyone who is concerned about the welfare of children should seriously consider joining Tonya's group:
 
Juvenile Justice Advocacy Group hosted by Children's Hope and Voice

There is, in my opinion, no cause more important than the protection of our future adults.  The cycle of abuse can be stopped by demonstrating awareness and caring, and actively promoting change.

Tonya, kudos to you for your tireless efforts!

I hate child protective services,because the children that should be taken out of the homes,they leave there,and the good parents that are doing the best that they can,they interfere and break families up.I think that many of them are good people who want to help,but there are others who feel that abusive parents are the exception instead of the rule.In brooklyn there was this little girl named nixtmary brown who was repeatedly abused,and had 15 different calls to cps.the stepfather ended up beating her to death.In most cases,I feel the gov't needs to stay out of people's private and family lives,but you would think after 15 calls they would have done something for this girl.A failed system.

that is the reaction I got over and over again every week every time they were returning my children back to their foster homes. And what did they do? Said it was simply effects from ME neglecting them as babies. And have since then said that it's important to maintain the support of the foster "carers".

Thanks for all the wonderful supportive comments left here and to those of you who signed the petition. Please, help us keep this circulated on all the social media you have access to. I really want this video to go viral asap. We have to do everything we can to help these children as fast as we can because as I understand it the main abuser of two is in the same household. These children are at risk every minute they wait for intervention.

I've sent out green stars to everyone who posted above. Thanks!

The two axxhole spammers above have definately been reported and I'm just sick they left their crap on this news story. Warning to spammers...I do report you and I will call you out on your crap! Inappropriate!

Thanks again and please forward, call your friends and family, post on all your social media and keep posting every day or every other day. Each day counts for these kids. We may be helping even more than we will ever know. I'm in hopes the other children effected will be helped as well.

Let me clarify...that would make both abusers in the household with the children. The mother had stated the father was gone from the household but according to the advocacy facebook site, the father was seen at the house. The people in the video and who are the ones advocacting for this boy and the other children are the alleged abusived father's parents, brother and sister. They are doing a wonderful job at trying to help these kids. Thank God they had the courage to step forward even when it meant they had to go against one of their own. I'm sure this is heart breaking on every front for them as I sure they wish things were different and remember the alleged abuser during a better day. God bless the children.

oops, hit the wrong key I was so upset!!
My cousin would visit us and when it was time to go back to the foster family he would cry. Little did we know he was being sexually abused (I was very young at the time). This boy is not just crying, he is terrified! No way in Hades is this kid putting on an act!! Something very, very wrong is going on at home.
I pray to God he goes with the good people. In the meanwhile, I also pray that the neighbors keep a close eye out for him, let alone a candlelight vigil to let him know he hasn't disappeared into the abyss.
The damned judges who order these cases should go to the houses THEMSELVES instead of just signing their name on a piece of paper and taking the word of social services. I hope when the boy grows up he could sue the hell out of the judge! Judges should be accountable for wrong decisions!!!!!
 

Terri Hughes (412)

Heartbreaking, how could child services and the judge give these poor children back to this abusive family? Cant't they see how terrified this little boy is? People like this don't deserve to have children. If the parents are known child abusers and these children are given back to them, they will continue to abuse them and maybe end up killing them. This is what usually happens. These children need to be taken out of this abusive home and placed somewhere safe. This breaks my heart to see this little boy crying and begging them not to take him. The laws need to change to protect children every way possible. And they have surely failed these little children. There parents need there asses thrown in prison and let the inmates take care of them. Prisoners don't like child abusers. The law and child services need to step in and do there job. This is so disturbing to see. God Bless these little children and please protect them from there evil parents. ''JUSTICE FOR THESE CHILDREN''!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Those left who aid and protect the no-voice no-choice of the world seem to be in the minority of a human population hell-bent on destruction without restraint or moral compass for direction. When this mindset and lack of address evolves to an accepted "norm" ... which it will in time if left unrepaired, we truly deserve what will follow. Ready?

This story made me feel ill and very angry. My niece was being abused and neglected by my sister (her mother). My sister is an active meth addict (not excusing her actions though). She had 2 other children taken out of her custody many yrs before for the same thing.Not providing a safe environment for her children etc....When I hot lined my sister so my niece would be taken care of....they told me they would wait until one of her friends down there called in on her. My reply was something like "who is going to call? All her "friends" are active junkies?"I am also a sub. abuse cnslr and have been for many yrs.I called the police to do a well child check....several times...they did nothing. I called the school to talk to the guidance cnslr...I know they cannot tell me anything but I can tell them anything that I want to. They blew me off. After banging my head bloody, I had to give up. That was 8 yrs ago.My Niece was 10 then......I can not even imagine the life that she will live from now on. I cried for a very long time. I sometimes still do.

We live in such a sick society now that the abusers of this child are no more crazy than the social service agencies that won't do anything to help these children. What are we coming to? And Wisconsin now has a teabagger governor who wants to cut even more services. How far will things like this have to go before we find a way to seriously change this sick system of ours. The USA is very sick and the cure still seems elusive. I signed the petition noted by Just C and I commend all who care what's happening to these children. In this case, the information about what has actually happened to these kids and how much the state has been involved is a bit scanty, however. The video speaks volumes, though.
