In 1999, the Oregon Attorney General Hardy Meyers gave an opinion filed in federal court that Oregonians do not have the right to protect themselves if they are the victims of criminal abuse, fraud or abuse of authority by civil servants and authorities.

Mr. Meyers, through assistant Attorney General Cynthia Botsois, also stated that parents have no legal right to stand in the court for the protection of their children when the children are being knowingly abused in State custody, even though their parental rights have not been terminated by the courts.

Selected vaccine authorities from CDC, FDA, and manufacturers discuss, in a closed meeting, the possibility of neurodevelopment disorders resulting from vaccine components.

The CDC published a study in late 2003, repudiating any possible link between thimerosal and developmental problems such as autism, but the CDC did have data supporting such a link which it secretively kept from the public. Documents released through the Freedom of Information Act detail the transcript of a meeting held in June of 2000 between members of the CDC, the FDA, and representatives from the vaccine industry. This top secret meeting was held to discuss a study done by Dr. Thomas Verstraeten and his co-workers using Vaccine Safety Datalink data as a project collaboration between the CDC's National Immunization Program (NIP) and four HMOs. The study examined the records of 110,000 children...

Toledo, Ohio, is in a state of emergency following the discovery of a dangerous cyanotoxin named micrcocystin in the water at the Collin Park water treatment plant, according to The Toledo Blade.

At a news conference, officials with the Toledo-Lucas County Health Department said that the level of the cyanotoxin, which is produced by a blue-green algae, is currently at 2.5 ppm. That's twice the allowable level; symptoms triggered by the toxin range from a rash to liver failure. A handful of studies done in China have also tentatively tied the toxin's presence in drinking water to certain types of cancer.

Galveston, Texas-area lawyers on Facebook may want to double-check their friends list, especially if they're about to appear before Judge Susan Criss.

Criss recalled one time that a lawyer asked for a continuance because of the death of her father. The lawyer had earlier posted a string of status updates on Facebook, detailing her week of drinking, going out and partying. But in court, in front of Criss, she told a completely different story.

Houston -- Prosecutors say a mother brutally beat her own two-month-old child to death, all because she was mad at someone else.

On Friday, Jessica Ann Hoosier's young child died. Hoosier was booked into jail over the weekend and appeared before a judge today. Prosecutors tell us that Barry Theus, Jr. was only two months old, and they believe he sustained violent abuse for half of his short life.

Authorities investigating the slaying of a Child Protective Services administrator have no firm suspects but are interested in a half-dozen people, including a man who once dated the woman and a couple who became angry during a visit to her office.

The partially clothed body of Sally Blackwell, 53, was found in a Victoria County field March 15. Investigators say she was strangled. Police say two bloodhounds followed a scent on a rope found around Blackwell's neck to the home of a former Victoria Sheriff's Department captain who had dated her. The man's home was searched, but he hasn't been charged, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported in Sunday's editions.

The state responds to mounting criticism aimed at Child Protective Services following the deaths of three young children.

CPS first came under fire after four-year-old Emma Thompson. CPS had failed to remove the child from the family's home, even though she had been diagnosed with an STD prior to her death. There was more criticism when it was learned two-month-old Amber MacCurdy died of a staph infection after CPS investigated her family.

Out of an estimated 56 million school age children, about 1.5 million are homeschooled. Of that number, at least 100,000 are believed to be unschooled -- the term coined to describe an unorthodox approach to homeschooling.

The Biegler children live as though school doesn't exist. They're at home all day, but they're not being homeschooled. They're being "unschooled." There are no textbooks, no tests and no formal education at all in their world. What's more, that hands-off approach extends to other areas of the children's lives: They make their own decisions, and don't have chores or rules.
