Texas, a CPS office is no place to house a needy child
Posted: 03 Apr 2017 07:27 PM PDT
Some of Texas’ most vulnerable children, children in such dire straits that the state is in charge of their wellbeing, are spending their nights sleeping in CPS offices. Not in the loving homes of well-trained caregivers. In offices. It’s outright outrageous.

Oh Joy! Lucy Spraggan is going to be a foster sucker! And now the dumbass who is obviously looking at this through a set of rose colored glasses, is using her fame to sucker more unsuspecting victims convince more potential foster care providers to join in.

Yes folks, every now and then I come across one of those articles that just makes me want to bang someones head off the wall and scream. Here it is.

Hold on to your lunch…

“Me and my fabulous wife are now officially approved foster carers,” the singer wrote. “Woo!”
She also urged her followers who may be interested in fostering to look into it.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE
Judge accused of punching, choking and biting his wife is indicted and put on leave
By Martha Neil
11 hours, 49 minutes ago
An Ohio judge accused of punching, biting and choking his wife in an attack that put her in the hospital with a fractured orbital bone and other injuries earlier this month has been indicted and put on paid leave.

Judge Lance Mason, who sits in Cuyahoga County, was indicted by a grand jury Tuesday on felony and misdemeanor charges including kidnapping, felonious assault, child endangering and domestic violence, the Plain Dealer reports. At least part of the alleged attack took place while the couple was driving, with their young children in the back seat, in Shaker Heights.

Because of the indictment, the state supreme court announced Tuesday that Mason, who has not been on the bench since the Aug. 2 incident, would be disqualified from hearing cases while the prosecution is pending but will continue to receive his annual salary of $121,000, according to the newspaper and Court News Ohio.

Mason’s request for a special prosecutor in the Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court case was denied, but a visiting judge from outside the county is overseeing the case, WKYC reports.

Tuesday was Mason’s 47th birthday.

The Plain Dealer was not immediately successful in its effort to reach Mason’s lawyer, Fernando Mack.

Mason’s wife, Aisha Fraser Mason, filed for divorce earlier this month.

Masonis accused in court documents of punching his wife with his fists, slamming her head against the dashboard and biting her, WKYC reports. She said in a 911 call that the judge then forced her out of the vehicle and drove away with their children.

He is banned by a temporary protective order from contacting her and the children.
