New York’s Office of Children and Family Services is in hot water after a New York Police Department Officer is being charged with second degree murder in the death of his own son, one year after the child protective agency dismissed a complaint against Michael Valva alleging the officer was mistreating another one of his children.
Thomas Valva, eight years old, died in January of hypothermia when his parents, Michael Valva and Angela Pollina, locked him in a garage overnight. The child was autistic, and his parents are both being charged with second degree murder as a result of his death.
Sadly, the death of the eight year old boy appears to have been entirely preventable. In February 2019, the Office of Children and Family Services received an anonymous complaint in regards to Valva’s treatment of his other son, Anthony. An anonymous whistleblower, who appears likely to have been a schoolteacher, claimed that Anthony was arriving at school soaked in urine.
Michael Valva was apparently locking the boy in his garage because he was wetting the bed. Thomas Valva was found dead in the same garage less than a year later.
The complaints against the police officer appear to have been entirely ignored for unclear reasons. Agency documents reveal that the complaint was wholly dismissed less than one day after it was submitted to the child protective office.
Family photos reveal that Valva has at least six children.
Valva’s ex-wife, Justyna Zubko-Valva, had reportedly been reporting him to the agency for routinely abusing his children. She says that the now-disgraced cop had been beating and starving his own children, in addition to locking them in the garage. Zubko-Valva is Thomas’ mother, and lost custody of her children when she divorced Valva.
New York’s bureaucratic agency devoted to the welfare of at-risk children appears entirely asleep at the wheel when it comes to doing their due diligence in protecting the most innocent members of society.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
