Miami-Dade narcotics detector canine Franky, who came out of retirement to give a demonstration, sniffs for marijuana in Miami on Dec. 6, 2011.
By Matthew DeLuca, Staff Writer, NBC News
The use of a drug-sniffing dog by police outside of a home where they suspected drugs were being grown constitutes a search under the Fourth Amendment, the Supreme Court said in a decision handed down Tuesday.
The case, Florida v. Jardines, dealt with whether police could use trained canines to investigate the immediate surroundings of a home for drugs they suspected were being grown inside, but could not see.

Officers from the Miami-Dade Police Department approached Joelis Jardines’ home with a drug dog in 2006 after receiving a tip that marijuana was being grown in the house. The animal alerted officers to the presence of marijuana in the house, after which officers obtained a search warrant and discovered the plants.
The justices affirmed the Supreme Court of Florida’s decision to suppress the evidence by a 5-4 vote. Justice Antonin Scalia delivered the court’s opinion.
“To find a visitor knocking on the door is routine (even if sometimes unwelcome); to spot that same visitor exploring the front path with a metal detector, or marching his bloodhound into the garden before saying hello and asking permission, would inspire most of us to – well, call the police,” Scalia wrote.
This is the second of two police dog cases the court has delivered opinions on this term, both originating in Florida. In a February decision in the other case, Florida v. Harris, the court ruled that an alert by a trained police dog gave police officers probable cause to further search a vehicle.



Phoenix mother accused of abusing her young son
Posted: Mar 25, 2013 2:24 PM Updated: Mar 25, 2013 2:28 PM

PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities say a Phoenix woman is in custody for allegedly abusing her 2-year-old son.

Phoenix police said Monday that 21-year-old Rickesha Jovani Burns is being held without bond on suspicion of sexual conduct with a minor and child abuse.

Police officers were called to a residence about 8 p.m. Sunday and found Burns holding her son.

They say the child was crying and bleeding and was immediately transported to a Phoenix hospital.

Police say Burns told them her son had been playing with a 12-year-old boy at a park and he had done something to the child.

Doctors say the child had injuries around his rectal area and he needed surgery to remove a foreign object.

Police say they found no evidence that the child was assaulted at the park.

Bill requires parents to get ex's OK to move
Posted: Mar 24, 2013 10:31 AM Updated: Mar 24, 2013 10:31 AM

Associated Press

PHOENIX (AP) - A proposal moving though the Arizona Legislature would require divorced Arizona parents who just want to move across town to file court notices and notify the parent who doesn't have custody of their child 60 days before to give them time to object.

The bill would replace a current law that only requires the notifications if the move is out of state or more than 100 miles away.

Proponents say that rule has been abused in some cases by parents who make a series of moves and doesn't take into consideration the effect on parenting time a move of much less distance can mean.

Opponents argue it could affect the ability of a custodial parent to take a new job or buy a house.

Tucson woman, boyfriend face murder charges in death of 4-year-old Posted: Mar 25, 2013 11:53 AM Updated: Mar 25, 2013 11:53 AM By John Ames - bio | email

 James Dwight Robinson and Judy Minley have each been charged with first-degree murder. (Source: Tucson Police Department) James Dwight Robinson and Judy Minley have each been charged with first-degree murder. (Source: Tucson Police Department) TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A 4-year-old boy has died from his injuries after an alleged abuse incident and the boy's mother and her live-in boyfriend have been charged with murder, police say. According to a news release from the Tucson Police Department, 26-year-old Judy Minley and 27-year-old James Dwight Robinson have each been charged with first-degree murder after the child died on Saturday. Minley and Robinson were arrested Friday after a 911 call that reported the boy had drowned. Police say rescuers revived him, but could find no signs that he had been in water. They found severe bruising on his body and determined that the injuries were non-accidental in nature. Minley and Robinson were booked into the Pima County Jail on Friday, originally facing one count of child abuse. According to a news release from the Tucson Police Department, the incident happened at an apartment in the 5400 block of East Williams. Emergency personnel from the Tucson Fire Department responded to the call just before 11 a.m. and found the child unconscious and unresponsive. The release says detectives investigating the case learned that Minley and Robinson allegedly disciplined the boy over several hours before putting him to bed on Wednesday night. On Thursday morning, he was found unresponsive, the release said.

Children's Rights law exists to safeguard children, their wellbeing and their individual rights. These federal and state policies and laws were spearheaded by the children’s rights movement which promotes legal defenses and protections for children by addressing their social welfare; health, education and special needs; child trafficking; child labor and exploitation and how the juvenile justice system deals with minors. With regard to child labor, the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) protects child laborers, along with other groups. However, because it was enacted when family farms were much more prevalent, the restrictions on agricultural work for children were fairly lax, and continue to remain so. Under general child labor FLSA rules, children under 13 cannot work and children of 14 and 15 years can only work during certain hours for a limited time period. But children who work in an agricultural setting may do so at the age of 9 years if they have signed parental consent. Various organizations have urged the U.S. government to make revisions to the FLSA to address these issues, Human Rights Watch among them. Most recently, they backed legislation known as the Children’s Act for Responsible Employment Act (CARE Act) in 2009, which called for amendments to the FLSA that would, among other things, prohibit minors from working on farms unless employed by their parents, but it never became law. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is well known as the leading organization supporting the preservation of individual human rights. And children in the custody of the state are among the groups of people to which the ACLU extends protection. On an international level, The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) was formed in 1989, and the U.S. and Somalia are the only two of the now 194 member countries that have failed to ratify the CRC’s treaty regarding children’s human rights internationally. Visit us at Google+ Copyright HG.org Children Rights Law - US ABA - Children's Rights Litigation Committee The Children's Rights Litigation Committee was created by the Section of Litigation to address the vast underrepresentation of children in all aspects of the legal system. The Committee endeavors to increase the number of children's legal projects and pro bono attorneys to represent children, along with providing training materials and programs in order to assist advocates in providing the highest quality of representation for children. Child Rights Information Network (CRIN) The Child Rights Information Network (CRIN) is a global network that disseminates information about the Convention on the Rights of the Child and child rights amongst non-governmental organisations (NGOs), United Nations agencies, inter-governmental organisation (IGOs), educational institutions, and other child rights experts. Children's right to HIV and AIDS treatment The Global Movement for Children (GMC) is the world-wide movement of organisations and people - including children - uniting efforts to build a world fit for children. Children's Rights Children's Rights is a national watchdog organization advocating on behalf of abused and neglected children in the U.S. Since 1995, the organization has used legal action and policy initiatives to create lasting improvements in child protection, foster care and adoption. European Children's Network (EURONET) The European Children's Network - EURONET - is a coalition of networks and organisations campaigning for the interests and rights of children (defined in the 1989 UN Convention on the Rights of the Child as all persons under 18 years of age). They share a common concern that children's rights should be taken into account in all EU legislation, policies and programmes which have an impact on children's rights. Human Rights Watch - Children's Rights Division The Children's Rights Division monitors human rights abuses against children around the world and works to end them. We investigate all kinds of human rights abuses against children: the use of children as soldiers; the worst forms of child labor; torture of children by police; police violence against street children; conditions in correctional institutions and orphanages; corporal punishment in schools; mistreatment of refugee and migrant children; trafficking of children for labor and prostitution; discrimination in education because of race, gender, sexual orientation, or HIV/AIDS; and physical and sexual violence against girls and boys. Children's physical and intellectual immaturity makes them particularly vulnerable to human rights violations. Unicef Convention on the Rights of the Child UNICEF’s mission is to advocate for the protection of children’s rights, to help meet their basic needs and to expand their opportunities to reach their full potential. United Nations Children's Rights To highlight the existence of the most egregious violations of international human rights law and encourage Governments to investigate particular cases, the United Nations Commission on Human Rights has appointed a Special Rapporteur on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography. Children Rights Law - International Children RIght and the Law The papers and comments in this volume are drawn from contributions to a Workshop on 'Children, Rights and the Law' organized by the Centre for International and Public Law at the Australian National University. The purpose of the Workshop was to use the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child as a vehicle for exploring some theoretical and practical problems with children's rights. Children’s Rights: International and National Laws and Practices Children’s Rights examines sixteen nations, across five continents: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Greece, Iran, Israel, Japan, Lebanon, Mexico, Nicaragua, Russia, and the United Kingdom (England and Wales). For each nation, the study focuses on the domestic laws and policies that affect child health and social welfare, education and special needs, child labor and exploitation, sale and trafficking of children, and juvenile justice.

Amanda Todd's mother speaks out about her daughter, bullying Read more: http://www.vancouversun.com/news/Amanda+Todd+mother+speaks+about+daughter+bullying+with+video/7384521/story.html#ixzz2OTnVZnSX Amanda Todd’s mother, Carol Todd, doesn’t want other children to suffer as her daughter did — stalked and harassed by bullies in cyberspace and in the schoolyard, by people she knew and by stalkers many miles away. Amanda told her story in the heart-wrenching video that chronicled her nightmare: the taunts, the beating, the cyber-stalker who tracked her down whenever she tried to start afresh at a new school — firing off images that captured her showing off her young body, flattered by online attention from someone she thought was a kid just like her. Amanda killed herself this week, one month shy of her 16th birthday and one month after telling the world through a YouTube video of bullying that left her depressed and despairing. If you or someone you know is experiencing suicidal thoughts, click here for ways to get help Now Carol wants to tell her story. It is a story no mother wants to tell. “Amanda was a very caring individual. She would help others who needed help,” Carol told The Vancouver Sun during an exclusive interview Friday at her home, where she was surrounded by friends and family. “One of Amanda’s goals was to get her message out there and have it used as a learning tool for others.” As a teacher in the Coquitlam school district and a specialist in assistive technologies, Carol is comfortable around computers and knows well the dangers the online world can hold. Still, she wasn’t able to protect her child. “I have lost one child, but know she wanted her story to save 1,000 more.” Amanda was 12 years old when she made a mistake that would haunt her until her death three years later. Her ordeal started while she was fooling around online with friends. She probably didn’t think it was risky behaviour when she lifted her top to flash the person who was flattering her at the other end of the webcam. Amanda’s moment of indiscretion was not unusual for someone her age: Sexting and using webcams to share sexual photos is a growing trend among children, some so young they are still in grade school. “The Internet stalker she flashed kept stalking her,” said Carol. “Every time she moved schools he would go undercover and become a Facebook friend. What the guy did was he went online to the kids who went to (the new school) and said that he was going to be a new student — that he was starting school the following week and that he wanted some friends and could they friend him on Facebook.” “He eventually gathered people’s names and sent Amanda’s video to her new school.” The video and photos went to teachers, to parents, to Facebook friends, which lead to repeated taunts: “Oh, there’s the porn star.” “It increased her anxiety and she couldn’t go to class,” Carol said. In putting together her video, which Amanda did on her own, Carol said her daughter wanted to help other young people who are being bullied and to bring attention and education to the problem in the hope of seeing it eradicated. “Amanda wanted to tell her story to help other kids. I want to tell my story to help parents, so they can be aware, so they can teach their kids what is right and wrong and how to be safe online,” she said. “Kids have iPads, they have smartphones, technology is much more accessible than it was even five years ago — that is the dangerous factor.” When Amanda’s story and video went viral this week, the outpouring of grief from local teens left Carol unable to distinguish Amanda’s true friends from those who may have helped drive her to suicide. Carol has launched a trust fund in Amanda’s memory to raise money for anti-bullying awareness education and for support programs for youth with mental health issues. Amanda was the victim of unrelenting blackmail. And the cyberspace stalker was aided by people in Amanda’s real-world life — kids who would share the photos on their cellphones, kids who would gang up to hurl first verbal abuse and then fists at her. “Everything she said in the video happened over the past two years,” said Carol. “It was horrendous. I think about it now and I think, ‘Oh my God. How did she survive this long with the pain?’ ” The end, when it came, was a shock. Despite Amanda’s earlier suicide attempts, Carol said in recent days and weeks she was getting much better. She spent time in hospital in September, getting treatment and counselling. Her life was starting to return to normal, which it hadn’t been since grade 8. “She felt like a normal teenager, she was so proud of herself,” said Carol. “She went out with friends, she went to the mall, she said to me, ‘Mom, this is the first time that I feel normal again. I have had the best day ever.’” Carol doesn’t know what caused her daughter’s setback, but Amanda may have given Carol an answer in a private video. “She left me a video message on her phone. I’m not ready to look at it yet,” said Carol. “The coroner has told me it will provide closure for me but I can’t look at it yet.” Carol doesn’t know what happened, but sometime earlier this week — before Amanda killed herself late Wednesday afternoon — something happened to shatter that fragile recovery. The police have been unable to track her stalker down. “The police investigated and investigated, it got traced to somebody in the United States,” said Carol. “But they never found him. Those people are very good at hiding their tracks.” The suspected pedophile threatened that if she didn’t do a show for him, he would circulate her pictures again. Amanda wouldn’t bow to the pressure and he carried out his threat. Finger-pointing at schools for not stopping bullying only angers Carol. She said Amanda, who had learning problems, had excellent support in the Coquitlam school district, where Amanda spent most of her school time. Since March, she was a student at CABE, Coquitlam Alternate Basic Education secondary school, which is a haven for youth who, for whatever reason, need the alternative learning situation. It was there that Amanda made friends, among both the students and staff. “She had a good support network there,” said Carol. Among the teachers Amanda especially liked was former Olympic track and field star Leah Pells, who teaches physical education at the school. “She and Amanda clicked and Amanda trusted her,” said Carol. Carol is much more tech savvy than the average parent. But Amanda’s victimization at the hands of the stalker led Carol to learn more about the horrifying world of child pornography, where some victims don’t even know their images are being shown on porn sites. “You’ll see pornography and the girls are so young,” she said. “I don’t know if the girls are doing this for kicks, if their parents are monitoring it or if they even know about it. The Amanda Todd trust fund is being held at the Royal Bank of Canada, which will be accepting donations in Amanda’s name at all its branches. gshaw@vancouversun.com If you or someone you know is experiencing suicidal thoughts, click here for ways to get help Read more: http://www.vancouversun.com/news/Amanda+Todd+mother+speaks+about+daughter+bullying+with+video/7384521/story.html#ixzz2OTn8gDJI http://www.vancouversun.com/news/Amanda+Todd+speaks+about+daughter+death/7384521/story.html

Standing in the shadow of the law http://nfpcar.org/Shadow/ Getting of the State Registry (of child abusers) Please refer to the free online eBook:     Standing InThe Shadow of the Law By Marilyn Harrison http://nfpcar.org/Shadow/ (available for download) Contents Introduction Child Abuse and Neglect Registry Contacts Other Comments on Getting Off the Registry List of Acronyms Used by the Government Related Reading ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Introduction The first step is going through the appeal process and obtaining a determination of unfounded, unindicated or unsubstantiated.  One is placed upon the Registry as a first step upon a substantiated finding from the outcome of a child abuse investigation.  Please see:  http://nfpcar.org/Reform/ for a description of what happens.  We find it to be unconstitutional and a judge has ruled it to be so and the appealed ruling was upheld. The following is input from Group in the quest to get our names expunged from the Central Registry (SACWIS) or Central Index.  Even though found unsubstantiated, unindicated and unfounded, many times our record still remains.  Another section “Central Registry Expunction of Records by State” lists the statutes regarding this expunction. Also, please see  “Components of a Caseworker’s File,” a work in progress in obtaining case records. With a Registry record, one can be fired from and/or not obtain a caregiver job.  One lady I know, who has an indicated finding and is on the Central Index of CA is not allowed to drive a school bus, anymore, because she is in contact with children.  There is work being conducted in Group with regard to the Central Registry and placement on it being a violation of our Constitutional Rights as it occurs without due process of law.  Please read more about it with Marilyn’s  ebook: Please refer to eBook  Standing InThe Shadow of the Law  by Marilyn Harrison http://nfpcar.org/Shadow/ (Available for download)  Back to Contents ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Child Abuse and Neglect Registry Contacts Go to Note Below on Accuracy and Original Form Location Go Now This information is subject to change.

Back to Top of this Document Back to Contents ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Other Comments on Getting Off the Registry  California Below is a way you can find out if you are on the child abuse central index. God bless, Barb 2. How do I find out if I have a Child Abuse report on file? {This is known as a Citizen Inquiry. It allows all individuals to know if his/her name appears on the Child Abuse Central Index [P.C. § 11170.(e)]} Answer: Send a brief letter asking if your name is on the Child Abuse Central Index, list all the names you have used include dates of birth, social security number, driver's license number, and have the signature notarized and send to DOJ. If your name matches with a name in CACI you will be notified of the confirmation within 60 days.  Send the letter to the address listed in Question #3. If an individual is listed as a suspect on the CACI, that person's name can be removed upon direction by the reporting agency. 3. I was listed only as a victim of child abuse. Now that I am 18, can my name be removed from the Index? Answer: Yes, you should send a notarized letter including your name, address, social security number, and date of birth to DOJ requesting that your name be removed. [P.C. § 11170(f)] Send correspondence to: California Department of Justice Bureau of Criminal Information and Analysis Child Protection Program P. O. Box 903387 Sacramento, CA 94203-3870 4. Recently, I went to court on a child abuse case and was found innocent due to an unsubstantiated report, why is my name still on the CACI? Answer: Because the reporting agency reported it to DOJ as "not unfounded" and the law states it has to be reported. Efforts to have your name removed should be directed to the reporting agency. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ --- In fosterparentallegat ions@yahoogroups .com, lulu wrote: Vicki, Yes I guess I do have the right to know if my name is on there. However after reading another post-that states-you can't get it taken off and someone else said it costs $10 grand. What would be the point? It would only make me sad knowing they can get away with it. over and over and over. I could never find an attorney for my hearing over a year ago. I was told in Calif-it's tough to find anyone to go with you to one and this attorney also stated to me-that no one ever wins. She also said-they'll call you and open your home again when they need your beds.  On all of my paperwork it states :we have a right to change our minds at any time".  How convienent for them!  So I told God "I'll spend my $ on the kids but not on fighting social wrekers that have no kids of their own and are willing to wreck your home and tell you how to parent". Yes, I too thought that paper was meant for someone else and I told them so. I went in that hearing believing God would prevail but no one was listening to me.   It's like I wasn't even there. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I just had my fingerprints run, and that's considered a background check, statewide, called here BCI, Bureau of Criminal Investigations. Mine came back cleared, even though I've been charged, never went to court, but served official papers, in regards to false allegations, hence me coming to this great support group. All I had to do for that background check was go to the lady I know at the school, and she has the program to run the prints from her computer there, and it's sent off to BCI, and then comes back. Maybe someone from the school can run them for you? Everyone who works in the schools here are required to do the BCI and FBI, it might be worth a try? Also here, the BCI, and FBI fingerprints are separate from the Child Abuse and Neglect Registry here. I can not get a copy of my report by calling or anything, but I could if sent them a request, then they would mail me a copy of what's on there. I know what CPS did to us, and I know I am on there for sure. It burns me to even think about that. I shouldn't be on there, and they know it, and I know it, and yet it is....so unfair and unconstitutional. Take care and God bless, Joy from OH ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ On background checks to see if your name comes up on the Registry: --- Sue Rickerson wrote: No, I had asked that five yrs ago, to do a polograph  and or a voice detector and I was told no. Today I  went to the sheriff's department in my county  (already knowing nothing would come up) they ran my name and said there was nothing under my name, I  asked if I could get that in writing or on some type  of letter and their concern was that I had something  to worry about. I was given a computer printout with my name, BD, SS and drivers license number.   That is it but it is only for the county I live in. Susan Marsh wrote:  I have considered going to the sheriff’s  department to have a back ground check ran but not  sure how to go about it and if I do, should I put  down that I am considering doing child care? What  would be my bases for wanting a back ground check  and could I get it on my own or do I need an  employer to do this?    Does it seem strange to anyone else that anyone:  employer, school, 4H, scouts, county can get  background checks on us but we can't do one on  ourselves?   Someone here locally told me recently that she  went to the sheriff department and ask if she could  do a life scan (have her fingerprints run) she was  told no, that she needed an order from some business  or organization to get the search done. When she  asked why she couldn't check her own the deputy told  her that if there wasn't a company then they did not  know where to send the results. After a moment of thought the lady said can't you just send them to  me? and the deputy said Oh no, we can't do that.   WHY??????   Tooo Weird This is listed here so you can check & see if you are on the National Sex Offenders List (probably not):  http://www.familywatchdog.us/ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Here is a state-by-state listing of where agencies are referred for applying for criminal background checks.  It also provides links for each states web address.  Interesting to note that Florida is not listed:  http://www.dhs. state.or. us/policy/ childwelfare/ im/2007/cw_ im_07_010att2. pdf ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~    This is best.  They get a court order for expungement of records &  then the attorney does a background check to see if it were done or  they do one first and get court-ordered expungement of anything  that is seen.   All is done in writing -- no appearance. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ egypt pyramid wrote: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ New York State Central Registry http://www.acf.hhs.gov/nhsitrcapps/showaprofileforindex.jsp?App=468 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Virginia http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/cb/pubs/statecip/volume2/va_c.htm (highlight inserted) …Virginia's Automated Case Information System (VACIS): VACIS was the child welfare agency's administrative system for foster care cases until November 1997. At that time, information was transferred to the agency's new MIS - OASIS described below. Child welfare information managers report that information from VACIS is still available and provides a detailed account of case activities and dates of key case events. However, the system uses a comparatively rare language -"Mapper" - and only a small number of state staff can still access the automated records. The ongoing availability of this data source will need to be monitored due to the state budget reductions. Child Abuse and Neglect Information System (CANIS): CANIS was the child welfare agency's administrative system for cases investigated due to allegations of abuse or neglect. Information on open cases was transferred to OASIS in July 1999. System officials in Fairfax emphasized that neither this system nor paper files will contain a full record of abuse and neglect allegations and findings due to state regulations on expunging files effective in 1995. Since that time, information on unfounded allegations is to be purged one year after the incident if no other incident is reported. Depending on the severity of the level of risk established during the investigation, information on founded allegations is to be purged between 3 to 18 years after the incident. OASIS: OASIS came on line in November 1997 and was designed to consolidate all child welfare cases into one data base. State and local administrative and casework staff reported that the system faced a series of administrative and programming challenges for the first several years of operation. Reportedly, caseworkers and clerks found data entry to be very difficult and time consuming relative to the older system. In addition, quality control measures were obstructed by challenges in producing reports. Line staff reported that data on cases entering the system in the past two years is reliable - but encouraged the study team to use paper records to gather case level data prior to that time. Child Welfare Case Records: Casework supervisors and staff in Fairfax reported that case records were the best source of consistent and reliable information on reason for placement, service referrals and receipt, reason for case closure and type of permanent placement. The foster care plan would be the best source for this information in the file. The plan is updated every six months and includes each of these data elements except date custody was transferred and permanent placement at case closure. These data elements should be recorded at the end of the case notes. The study team was cautioned however, that case records, especially in Fairfax, are very detailed. It took state staff, familiar with the records and forms an average of eight hours to review each record during the state's trial runs for the Child and Family Services Review.

Police suspect that Kristepher Benavidez, 25, had been allegedly physically abusing the twins who were hospitalized after suffering severe injuries. Police say Monique Gaxiola, 30, knew about the alleged abuse, but didn't report it. According to police, one of the twins has died, prompting the new charges.

Tucson pair accused in abuse of twin girls, 18 months 17 hours ago • Kimberly Matas Arizona Daily Star Related Galleries The parents of 18-month-old twins were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of child abuse. Kristepher Benavidez, 25, and Monique Gaxiola, 30, were booked into Pima County jail. Each faces two counts of child abuse, Sgt. Chris Widmer, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said in a news release. Tucson Fire Department personnel went to a home in the 5200 block of South Newcastle Court near South Midvale Park Road, in response to a child not breathing call about about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday. While they took the toddler to a hospital, police officers discovered the toddler’s twin and a 7-year-old sister at a neighbors home. While the older child appeared uninjured, the twin girls suffered “injuries that appeared non-accidental,” Widmer said. Detectives “determined that the father had been physically abusing the twin 18-month old sisters for an unknown period of time. The mother was aware of the abuse but did not report it. Both children suffered severe trauma from the abuse,” Widmer said in the release. The oldest child is in the custody of state Child Protective Services. The twins remain hospitalized. Bond for Benavidez was set at $20,000, while it is $5,000 for Gaxiola. The investigation is ongoing, he said. http://azstarnet.com/news/local/crime/tucson-pair-accused-in-abuse-of-twin-girls-months/article_b2bdf6a8-8cf2-11e2-bcae-001a4bcf887a.html

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie
I URGE ALL MY FRIENDS TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LOVED ONES LIFE BY KNOWING THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION!!! Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue: During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. It only takes a minute to read this. A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. >>RECOGNIZING A STROKE<< Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: S *Ask the individual to SMILE. T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup) R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke. A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved. I have done my part. Will you?
