Franklin - A decision allowing a father convicted of child molestation in 1992 to have unsupervised visitation with his 7-year-old son has become an issue in an election for Circuit Court judge.

The decision was made in January by Robbie Beal, a Williamson County Juvenile Court referee and Republican candidate in the Aug. 3 election. He's been a referee, handing matters such as visitation and custody of children, for almost eight years.

Pinellas County Florida - ...An hour later I was sitting in the home of a fit, muscular man of 50 in his 4 bedroom home in Largo (Pinellas County) Florida. Greg Pound has a wife, Melissa, and 5 precious children under the age of seven.

I knew before arriving that I wouldn't hear the laughter of children playing or smell dinner on the stove. Greg had told me that Florida's Department of Children and Family (DCF) had stolen all of his children 2 years ago. Subsequently, his wife had a baby, but had escaped so the DCF could not take that one too. Greg spent a month in jail for contempt...

DENVER -- A common-law marriage in Colorado between a 14-year-old boy and 12-year-old girl is possible after an appellate court ruling this week.

That's the potential fallout from a Colorado Court of Appeals decision that overturned a lower court finding that 15 is too young for a girl to enter into common-law union. "Previously, Colorado law did not set [a minimum] age" for common-law unions, Harhai said. "That's why this is a new precedent."

New York education officials issued a scathing report on a Massachusetts school that punishes troubled and disabled students with electric shocks, some are forced to wear shock devices in the bathtub or shower, posing an electrocution hazard.

The report, based in part on an inspection last month of the Judge Rotenberg Educational Center in Canton, portrayed a school in which most staff lack training to handle the students and seem more focused on punishing bad behavior than encouraging good acts.

What's happening to our young people down to the smallest member of a nursery school class is part of the most diabolical plan ever created by the ruling elites.

Here's how it works. In the UK, a nine-year-old boy went on a four-day school trip to an "outdoor activity center." The first activity was a visit to what was called a witch's tree. In his diary he wrote: "We formed a circle around it to keep away evil spirits, then we went up to it and felt it. It felt rough in some places and smooth in others. Then we tasted it, it tasted like dirt. We could also hear it breathing." Apparently, no one told those children they were actually inviting demons in by forming that circle.

SCOTLAND'S first dedicated family protection centre is to be established in the Capital by police, health workers and social workers. The special operations police unit which investigates incidents of child sex abuse and neglect has already moved to...

The move follows high-profile inquiries such as the one into the death of baby Caleb Ness, who was in the care of his brain-damaged father and recovering drug addict mother. Authorities were heavily criticised by the inquiry because vital information about the infant's situation was not shared between police, health and social workers.

BROKEN BOW - A McCurtain County judge granted custody of a child to the 45-year-old father, even though the child was conceived as a result of second-degree rape.

In his ruling, McCurtain County Associate District Judge Michael DeBerry found that Melonie Hamm Knutson had indeed been the victim of second-degree rape by John Keith Tucker, who was about 40 years old when Knutson conceived their first child at age 14. Knutson allowed her name to be published.

ONE OF THE dark secrets of California's troubled foster-care system is the way some young people are being drugged at the slightest sign of stress or misbehavior.

State regulations provide a financial incentive for group-home "parents" to request and administer psychotropic drugs -- an option that the testimony of foster youth suggests is being exercised far too readily.
