Toddler Dies In State Custody
A 2-year-old girl was killed after she was removed from her parents’ home and placed in child protective services.
Little Alexandria Hill in Round Rock, Texas was taken from her biological parents who were accused of neglecting her because they are pot smokers. The couple was charged with “neglectful supervision,” but claimed to only smoke pot after they put their daughter to bed.
Child Protective Services removed Alexandria from the home of Joshua Hill and his wife last november.
The Hills got visitation time with their daughter. Almost as soon as she was taken, Joshua began to notice severe bruises and injuries on the little girl’s body. He complained to state officials, and Alexandria was given a new foster home.
Things got better after that… For a while.
One day, Joshua got a call from the hospital that he will never forget. His Alexandria was there, and she was in a coma. She died soon thereafter.
After a medical examination, it was concluded that the girl died from trauma to the head. Alexandria’s new foster mother has been charged with murder.
Alexandria’s foster mother, Sherill Small, found the girl through the MENTOR program. Small passed all of the necessary background checks and had no violent history.
Small told investigators that she was spinning Alexandria around in circles when she accidentally let go of her hands. It was then, claimed Small, that the girl brutally hit her head on the carpet.
But her story didn’t add up.
During an examination, doctors found evidence of severe brain injury. After pressing Small with more questions, the woman admitted that she got angry with Alexandria and hit her over the head down near the ground with a “lot of force” several times. The girl’s head smashed against the floor on the third time.
The bigger question in this case is if the state initially acted illicitly. It is entirely possible that state officials overstepped boundaries by forcefully taking the girl and putting her in foster care.
If Alexandria had remained with her biological parents, she likely would not have ended up dead.
Is there blood on the Texas state government’s hands?

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?
