Colorado Did Not Check Child Abuse Email Hotline For More Than Four Years

Published

on

The state government of Colorado is in hot water for its prolonged neglect of an email hotline to report child abuse cases.

The AP reports: A Colorado state email account that was created to report suspected child abuse and neglect went unchecked for over four years, and five possible cases that were undiscovered until May are now being investigated, officials said.

Minna Castillo-Cohen, director of the Colorado Department of Human Services’ Office of Children and Families, said agency officials wish they had identified those cases sooner, but they didn’t know the email account existed, KCNC-TV reported.

The government is failing miserably to protect children.

The New York Times admitted that separated migrant children who came over the southern border were being sent to foster care in New York City under mayor Bill de Blasio.

“Under cover of darkness and in the custody of the federal government, migrant children have been coming in waves to New York, taken from their parents after crossing the southern border,” the New York Times reported in June 2018.

“Speaking outside Cayuga Centres in Harlem, one of a group of social service agencies in the state that contract with the federal government to take in unaccompanied minors, Bill de Blasio, the city’s mayor, said 350 children had come through the centre and 239 of them were currently in Cayuga’s care; the agency is not residential but places children in temporary foster care and runs day programmes,” the Times reported.

I reported:

Child Protective Services (CPS) is using a “Predictive Analytics” computer program to determine whether or not parents should be allowed to keep their children.

A father from Ohio named Aaron described on The Campaign Show with Patrick Howley Sunday on Patriots Soapbox that predictive analysis was used against him as he fought to keep his daughter, who was taken away for three years by CPS and placed in foster care.

Health Impact News reported: “In several cases reported to Health Impact News, we have already seen such allegations used against parents. Social workers have literally written in their reports to the courts that a parent has characteristics that might indicate that they may abuse or neglect their child in the future, even though there is no evidence that they have harmed their child in the past. This is reminiscent of George Orwell’s “thought police” in the dystopian novel, Nineteen Eighty-Four….algorithms tend to disproportionately target people who are poor or part of a minority group.”

The New York Times magazine ran an appropriately Orwellian recent headline, “Can An Algorithm Tell When Kids Are In Danger?”
