Foster youth to protest proposal to open up juvenile courts

  • Foster youth to protest proposal to open up juvenile courts

    November 21, 2011 | 11:16 am

    Young people in Los Angeles County’s foster care system plan to protest on the steps of a Monterey Park courthouse Monday in a demonstration against a judge’s push to open child dependency hearings to the public.

    Judge Michael Nash, the presiding judge of the L.A. County Juvenile Court, advocates opening up the court to improve accountability and transparency in cases of abuse, neglect and foster-care placement, as The Times reported about two weeks ago.

    The judge has proposed eliminating a standing policy barring the public and the media from entering dependency courtrooms without permission. His proposed blanket order would allow the public inside unless someone objected and a judge closed the proceeding.

    Nash has said the change would bring light to flaws in the juvenile court system and help rectify them. But California Youth Connection, the group planning to protest at 11 a.m. on the front steps of Edelman Children’s Court, says such a move would violate the privacy of young people by releasing intimate details of their neglect and abuse.

    I’ll bet Social workers and greedy foster parents are behind this new stunt! I was a foster kid and we were like mushrooms, kept in the dark and fed crap. There is NO way they would be protesting this without the help of those LOSER workers! As an ex foster youth, I want accountability for the crimes these criminal judges and social workers do behind closed doors. There is a six year old child who is being RAPED by her father in Placer county. The evidences are CLEAR and the child is terrified. What has this criminal judge done behind closed doors? Took the child from her mother and gagged her so she couldn’t speak out to save her child, gave sole custody to the pedophile father, and has barred anyone from helping this child all while the child is telling EVERYONE her father puts his worm in her mouth and in her butt and has rashes on both mouth and her vagina. The doctors have said she is being raped and the DA won’t or can’t do anything???? YA we need secret courts so pedophile and greedy judges and social worker and foster monsters can continue raping, destroying , and killing our children. I spent my childhood being RAPED for four years while in CA LA’s secret foster care facility in Beumont, CA Children’s Village run by rich celebrities and others with money. These kids are not protesting, there caregivers are! I know how this BS system works and I will tell you this… take one look at the porn that was made of us kids and you tell me how secret you would like those courts!!!! BTW:::I was 3-7 makes for great kiddie porn they said!!!!

    Well, if I knew they were protesting, I would have went down there and protested against the protesters. Who runs the California Youth Connections programs, the SEIU, the union that represents the county workers, both lawyers and caseworkers? Like I’ve said many times before, the children’s court system is a horribly abusive system. They do things like take your children for close to 90 days and during those 90 days, don’t allow the parents to speak a word in court, they allow the court appointed laywers to herd parents into service plans and threaten them that they will never see their children again if they go to trial. I know my lawyer told me this, if you choose to fight this and go to trial, the judge will punish you by taking your children for longer than necessary…They do not give families due process of law, children’s…See More

      California Youth Connection (CYC) is ran by current and former foster youth. I am a former foster youth and a former member of CYC. While the Judge’s intentions are good, I do not agree with public hearings. Going through the foster care system was hard enough I could not imagine the added embarrassment/invasion of privacy of having a public hearing detailing very private details of my life.

      The public should know about these abuses of power especially where Judges like Long Beach Superior Court – Deborah B Andrews is concerned. She is a child abuser no question about it. Her court needs to be investigated and DCFS needs to be fired. This circus act amounts to the same abuses caged circus animals are subjected to and it is a shameful use of our tax dollars.

    There is a major difference between Child Dependency hearings and those dealing with juvenile crime. We must find ways to bring flaws in the Child Protection system into the eyes of the public so that changes can be made. I tend to agree with Judge Nash on this one. We must improve accountability and transparency in cases of abuse, neglect and foster-care placement. Far too much remains hidden away behind the closed doors of Juvenile Courts.

    And trust me, they will never give your children back if they can help it. I was compliant with my caseplan, completed the parenting class, the autism training class, extended my outpatient tx volutarily from 3 mos to 7 mos, attended AA, visited my children at every chance I got, maintained a job and home and what did we get??? Well, after almost 9 mos of doing everything dcfs said, at the 6 mos review hearing, the judge pulled all the visits with my younger two sons, allowed visits only 3 hours a month instead of the 18-20 hours a month we had been having since detainment. DCFS and the court system use parental alienation on parents who complain about their children’s care. My children were also placed in a crap home in Bell that didn’t even speak English! My two older children are now living with two lifelong heroin addicts in Panorama City and the one foster parent isn’t even a US citizen!…has a green card though.

    Los Angeles children’s court also does not use DCFS ICWA unit. I am an enrolled tribal member of the chippewa nation, my children are 45% american indian and at the first hearing, the court already declares this a non icwa case, yet takes 84 days to decide if it will be a icwa case or not, when they had already decided behind their closed doors.

    Being a child that was abused by my foster parents and the fact that they had their license put on probation for two years then I totally agree with this. If the average public knew how bad it was could force them to change the system. If no light is shed on it then the same things are going to continue to happen.

    I am a 41 year old woman who was a foster child until I was 18. I can see both sides of this issue. Unless you have been a child in the system you can not fathom what it’s like to feel like no one is there for you. I am a mother of a college student, a senior in high school, and 6 year old twins. I believe the so-called “child advocates” and “court appointed attorneys” are not always there for what is the best interests of the child. If there is money involved then it’s a sure bet there’s more interest in prolonging whatever it takes to keep that coming than to find a “real” home for the child.
    Opening the court may assist in making those that are assigned to look out for and stand up for the child accountable. Foster parents, court appointed attorney’s for the child, and child advocates should have to be. There is nothing like…See More

    The young people in CYC are not being manipulated by SEIU or anyone else. But those who voted to take this position were tyrannized by their own personal experience, and the frightening thought that somehow, if courts were opened, reporters would rush to print their names and /or information that made clear who the case was about. In fact, criminal court cases are open and reporters don’t do that to adult rape victims.And the fact that nothing of the kind has happened in all the other states that have opened juvenile courts didn’t matter, because, it does not appear that CYC visited any of those states, or spoke to a cross-section of foster youth in those states, before reaching its decision.In fact, opening courts is one way these young people could reduce the chances of others having to endure what they did. Details are in this post to my organization’s Child Welfare Blog: http://bit.ly/uSULz4

    Excuse me while i put in my 2 cents.. Currently i am a foster youth at the age of 19. Also a teen mother.. Now being 15 and being a pregnant teen and a crappy county worker they took my child with no recent probable cause … they *u..ed up my life.. All i wanted is a family that i had lost before.. The foster system is far beyond messed up.. Last year foster parents killed infants, strangled kids ect.. But allot of kids don’t want other people to know there a foster child.. They are young adolescents that would most likely keep there identity to themselves… who’s to say a judge is to rule that strangers can come in and observe the messed up issues that happened in there life.. like rape , getting beat for no reason, being forced as a prostitute, foster parents raping them, mom is a crack head ect …. those are very serious personal matters that should remain confidential. I have met some really messed up kids.. Most are on psychotics to keep them calm and managed.. ive been in alot of homes and group homes ive seen the ins and the outs.. things that u never thought possible happen to kids and we should keep them confidential. What they need to do is start making foster parents to go therapy n take a lie detector tests because all foster parents are just in it for the money and they really dont know what happens behind closed doors..

    These cases should be handled in private not in public. How can judges have that much discretionary power??? That should be illegal.

  1. I agree with Dawn. Despite the ‘personal’ and sometimes painful details, having hearing in secret only serves to occult the many dark pieces of shit that infest the social services, etc.

    There can be a publication ban on names up to a point, but to ban all public scrutiny from any trial/hearing is falling more into the Devils hands. The occultic beasts work best in the dark. It is good to shine light on them at every opportunity.
