Dad with "shared custody" suspected of abusing 7-week-old son during his parenting time; baby has six fractured ribs (Lorain, Ohio)

It is INSANE for newborns to be in joint custody. This kind of abuse is far more common when the baby is traded back and forth.

Nice how the doctors are trying to blame Mom for their stupidity and incompetence....

Police investigating after 7-week-old infant injured

Filed on July 26, 2014

LORAIN — A 7-week-old baby boy sustained six fractured ribs on the left side of his body, causing police to investigate the cause.

At about 5:21 p.m. Thursday, the mother took the baby to Mercy Regional Medical Center, where officers were then dispatched for a possible child abuse case.

Officers learned that the infant he been crying a lot in recent days when the mother would hold him.

However, the mother took the infant to the hospital two days prior because he was “fussy.” The hospital advised the mother that he had a diaper rash.

“The child was still being abnormally fussy when she held him after the first visit to the hospital so she brought him in again,” the report stated.

The woman advised that she and the baby’s father share custody, but the father does not live with them.

Officers then spoke with the infant’s father, who stated two days ago when he was holding his son he would “begin to cry very loudly” and attempt to “squirm away.”

The father said he had no idea what originally caused the injury.

Officers questioned the mother as to why she did not notify hospital staff of the possible rib injury two days prior, and she told officers “she mentioned the area, but did not specifically mention the side rib as possibly being injured.”

Lorain County Children Services were contacted to assist.

The infant was transported to UH Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital .

The case remains under investigation.

Sentencing for dad who abducted two kids during his court-ordered visitation; kids went four years with no school, medical care (Winnipeg, Canada)

These guys are not motivated out of love or a desire to spend time with their kids. It's all about punishing Mom. Notice that dad KEVIN MARYK seriously neglected these kids. Other accounts have mentioned rampant drug abuse and trafficking.

Sentencing in child-abduction trial could be broadcast

By: Mike McIntyre

Posted: 1:15 PM

The sentencing hearing for a Winnipeg man who abducted his two children and hid them in Mexico for four years may have a much larger audience when it concludes next month.

Kevin Maryk will return to court on Aug. 22 to learn his fate after pleading guilty to one of the province's most notorious missing-persons case.

An application has been made for a live broadcast of the proceedings under a new judicial pilot project. If granted by the judge, the resolution can be seen by anyone with computer access.

Crown and defence lawyers spent a full day making submissions last month, but adjourned the case after being unable to agree on certain factual points.

The Crown is expected to call a further witness to testify before provincial court Judge Ted Lismer gives his decision.

The Crown is seeking a five-year prison sentence, which is half the 10-year maximum for abduction. Maryk is asking for 25 months of time served in custody and an immediate return to the community.

Dominic Maryk, 13, and Abby Maryk, 11, vanished while on a court-authorized visitation with their father in August 2008.

They weren't located until May 2012 in Guadalajara.

The children were kept in what the Crown has called "deplorable" conditions, which included having no access to schools, medical care or even friends.

Dad charged with aggravated battery for breaking leg of 1-year-old daughter (Joliet, Illinois)

Daddy "allegedly" picked up the baby and swung her over his shoulder with one arm. What a freaking moron. (Actually spiral fractures like this one are nearly always caused by male caretakers.)

Notice the vague reporting. We're not told WHO initially said that that mother fell on the baby. Was that Dad lying his @$$ off? Mom blaming herself so as to avoid violence directed at her by the father?

Dad is identified as MARTN SILVA.

Joliet father accused of breaking 1-year-old's leg

Published: Monday, July 28, 2014 12:56 p.m. CDT

By BRIAN STANLEY

JOLIET - Police say a father broke his 1-year-old daughter's leg when he was left alone with her earlier this month.

Martin Silva, 29, of the 100 block of Sesser Street, was arrested Friday on charges of aggravated battery to a child, domestic battery, reckless conduct and endangering the life or health of a child. He is being held in the Will County jail on $50,000 bond.

Lt. Brian Dupuis said police were called July 19 to Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox to take a report of suspicious injuries to the infant. The girl had suffered a spiral fracture to her femur, Dupuis said.

"They were told the child's mother had been carrying her and fell on the girl," Dupuis said. But when a detective went for another interview with the family Friday, a different story came to light, he said.

About 12:45 p.m. on July 18, the mother left Silva to care for the baby while she was at the residence next door. She returned five minutes later to find her daughter crying intensely, Dupuis said.

"Silva (had) picked her up and swung her over his shoulder by one arm. It was not an accidental injury," Dupuis said.

The baby has also been turned over to the custody of another relative, Dupuis said.

Records show Silva has been jailed four times on traffic violations in Will County during the last three years.

Investigation ongoing after 4-year-old boy found unconscious in home of dad, girlfriend; is this a custodial dad? (Port Huron, Michigan)

Yet another case that's interesting for what is NOT said.

Why was this boy in this home to begin with? Did UNNAMED DAD have full custody? Joint custody? Visitation? What?

And if Dad can't or won't take care of him, why is he being dumped on the unnamed babysitter/girlfriend? Is this a case of dodging child support? Punishing the mom? What?

These other children that were taken by CPS--are they the father's also? The "babysitter's"? Or do they belong to both?

What happened to the mother of this little boy?

Why does the media not bother to explain these things?

Investigation ongoing after Port Huron boy, 4, found unconscious

Written by Times Herald

Police say an investigation is ongoing after a 4-year-old boy was found unconscious Friday at a home in the 800 block of 13th Street in Port Huron.

Port Huron police Det./Sgt. Brian Georgia said police are investigating what happened to the boy.

The boy’s 23-year-old father and a 22-year-old woman who had been watching him have been questioned. They are not in custody, Georgia said.

Initial reports that the boy’s father was 41-years-old were incorrect.

The father, woman and boy are Port Huron residents.

Georgia said the 22-year-old woman watching the boy called police about 2:35 p.m. Friday.

When authorities arrived to the home, the boy was unconscious in the bathtub, Georgia said.

Further examination showed the boy also had some internal and external injuries.

The boy was taken to McLaren Port Huron hospital, and then airlifted to William Beaumont Hospital.

Georgia said the boy is listed in critical, but stable condition.

Two other children in the home were removed by Child Protective Services.

Further details on the investigation have not been released.

Dad with extensive criminal history arrested for assaulting 12-year-old son; boy now with "relatives"--what happened to Mom? (Kershaw County, South Carolina)

The most interesting part about this article is what it fails to say or explain.

Like, why was a father like ANTONIO GREEN, a man with a violent criminal history, allowed anywhere near a child?

And why is there no mention of the boy's mother? She apparently has not been arrested, or that would have been reported. And she didn't get the boy back, because unnamed "relatives" have him now.

So what happened to Mom? With a man this violent, you have to wonder what he did to her over the years. Did he strip her of custody through a court-sanctioned campaign of terror? Is she "missing"? Is she deceased? If so, do we know if it was truly from natural causes?

These are the first questions we should be asking when a violent father--with no sign of the mother around--assaults or even kills a child. But of course, it is taboo for the media to say anything.

Sheriff: Father beat 12-year-old son with fists, flashlight

By Jeremy Turnage

Updated: 07/28/2014 3:55 pm EDT

A 48-year-old Kershaw County man was arrested and charged with second degree assault and battery after investigators say he beat his 12-year-old son.

Kershaw County Sheriff's deputies say Antonio Green got into an argument with his son about a missing pair of keys.

Green, who was reportedly drunk during the incident, then beat the child with his fists and a flashlight.

The boy, according to deputies, fled the scene to a neighbor's house where 911 was called. Kershaw County EMS also treated the child and took him to KershawHealth.

Deputies arrived at Green's Bunker Hill Road residence a short time later and immediately took him into custody. His bond was set at $20,000 and he remains at the Kershaw County Detention Center.

The child, meanwhile, was removed from the home and is staying with relatives.

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews says Green has an extensive criminal record with arrests for assault and battery, disorderly conduct, DUI, DUS, criminal domestic violence, criminal domestic violence high and aggravated, and open container.

Trial to determine if custodial dad will lose custody of 12-year-old boy found in basement (Detroit, Michigan)

If the boy is doing well with Mom, then who made the decision that this control freak, abusive father should have custody? We need the judge's name. But of course, the media will never report that.

Dad is identified as CHARLIE BOTHUELL IV.

Trial for dad, stepmom of boy found in basement

July 28, 2014 20:11 GMT

DETROIT (AP) -- A trial is scheduled for Sept. 8 to decide whether the father and stepmother of a 12-year-old Detroit boy found in his basement after an 11-day disappearance will lose custody of their children.

A pretrial hearing was held Monday in Wayne County juvenile court for Charlie Bothuell IV and Monique Dillard-Bothuell.

Michigan is seeking to terminate the couple's rights to two other children and the father's rights to Charlie Bothuell V.

The 12-year-old is living with his mother, Africa Shippings. She tells WXYZ-TV he's doing well.

Children ages 4 years and 11 months are living with relatives.

Police found Charlie Bothuell V in the basement of his father's condo on June 25.

Authorities say he was abused and forced to complete intense physical workouts. There are no criminal charges.

Dad arrested for assaulting 2-month-old daughter during visitation (Adams County, Ohio)

If your relationship with the mother doesn't even survive the first six months of a baby's life, then you shouldn't have visitation. These guys typically don't bond with the baby at all, leaving the child vulnerable to this kind of abuse.

Babies need a consistent, loving caregiver (the mother)--not visitation with the hostile daddy looking to minimize his child support and his new wife.

Unmarried mothers, especially when they are not cohabitating with the father, should get full, automatic custody of their babies. Period. End of discussion. That 's the way it used to happen, and we didn't see anything like this kind of abuse in the past.

Dad is identified as REGINAL MORAN.
