Wait, So Registered Child Abusers Had More Adoption Rights Than Gays?

Categories: News
anstead.jpg (JPEG Image, 300x404 pixels).jpgRiptide was going to write you up a nice "The Florida Supreme Court for Dummies" post, but in its research found itself caught up in tangents. Our interest was spurred in part by yesterday's overturning of the gay adoption ban by a Miami judge (as well as by future Crist appointments). The issue will likely find itself before the Florida Supreme Court. But the court has taken up the issue before in James W. Cox vs. Florida Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services (HRS) back in 1995. If I am reading my legalese correctly, the court upheld the ban, but decided its constitutionality could be challenged in the future.

The only Justice to full out disagree with the ruling was Harry Lee Anstead. In his descent he punched more holes in the ban than Swiss cheese.

Anstead was concerned that too much of HRS's case relied almost exclusively on the state's sodomy law, and that it, in theory at least, applied to homosexuals and heterosexuals. The good news is that the state basically built its entire case in 1995 against gay adoption around a law that no longer exists. The US Supreme Court struck down all sodomy laws in 2003. So, it will be interesting to see what kind of legal gymnastics lawyers put together this time.

Anstead's opinion then goes on to blast the sodomy law some more, before finding it quite strange that in Florida ex-Felons and registered child abusers can apply to adopt, but homosexuals can not.

"The differential treatment of felons and child abuser on one hand and homosexuals on the other raises a serious substantive due process question. It suggests that the state is completely denying gays acces to any meaningul legal process, even the intensive scutiny reserved for felons and child abuser. Before the State can deny due process in this manner, it must at least advance a legitimate reason for doing so based in fact and emprical study."

As we've pointed out, the mainstream facts and emprical studies show that homosexuals are just as qualified to raise children as heterosexuals.

Unfortunately, Anstead will be forced off the court in January when he hits the mandatory retirement age of 70 (what happened to the idea that old age brings wisdom?), and another  Justice will hit seven decades of life in March. So by the time this issue hits the court again, the ideology of the current bench may be shifted radically to the right.

The good news is that the legal arguments used to defend the ban in 1995 will no longer hold up.

i don't my friend's mom knew that he was sexualy abused at that home'in fact i don't think it was reported to the police.or to the state.mike gotten away with it.and so did they.my friend has kept it to him self for too long and now he wants  to tell every one about this.that home was sick and evil.

Scott hayden
Scott hayden

at the whole time he was being abused he had no one to protect him.no one was there for him.not even his mother.that home made him sick.

Scott hayden
Scott hayden

i think one reason his mom couldn't or wouldn't protect my friend is because she was a vulnerable woman a sick one at that. and all so at the time while he was there i don't think they took sexual abuse seriously enough.oh he was in such danger where no child should be.you may as well put him  a 9 year old child with othere sexoffenders.or trade him for sex.oh sorry about that but that's whet it's seems like to me.allso i think he was sexualy abused at camp when he was 7.

the lake park wild rice children's home in fergus falls was a very very bad  place.my friend was abused and sexualy abused and assaulted there.trust me whan i say my friend was never everEVER RETARDED!!!!!!mantaly traumatiz maybe.he hated that home and that town.it was never his home.i think with all the abuse it lowered his i.q. with all the abuse is the reason why he had such a hard time learning.you see one day he was being beating up by jack brooks no one steped in to stop it.not even eleen jenson who was suppose to be one of the good ones like others  she  ignors it.and she clame to be his friend.i don't think shes a good person.and another thing if anyone who thinks that place was safe is aLIER!how is it possibul that home was safe with all the kind of sick kids that live there?like mike the guy with rsilver tooth.he sexualy abused my friend.and another was byron robinson.well all im going to say about him is that i think i have this feeling that he may have molested my friend.probably at night.so they had possibly 3 or more child rapist.the other was steve camacho.he would take kids down in to the woods to molest them.we believe he maybe the same one who killed a 14 year boy in 1995 name joshua pocock.so,they not ownly had child rapers but killers to.that place was never safe nor healthy.i wouldn't be a bit surprized if they a rapist and a murderer working there.

and sometimes he hates himself for all of this.and he wishs he could have ran away from there.but i think he was too afraid to do it.some times he feels like ending his life.

you know someing?the workers at the lake park wild rice children's home were so stupit they don't even know when there abuseing kids.they are carcless thoughtless and senseless.and they use bad judgment.and they set bad examples for everyone.they yell at kids.there was a girl there once name nancy hill.when some one like doug monroe starts yelling at her he allways gos NANCY K KELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!i mean really do you want someone like that around your kids?i don't care what anyone says that guy must be a nazi.what was the point in proteckting him from his father?my friend needed more protecktoin from that hom then from his father.and let me tell you someing.about my friend, he was never retarded.i believe he's what real smart people would call delade.with that muuch abuse and sexual abuse and emotional abuse oh yes that can and will happen. so you?they were the bad guys.

i have just found out that the lake park wild rice children's home in fergus falls had not just 2 but 3 sex offends liveing there 1 was mike the guy with the silver thooth,the othere was the child killer steve camacho.and now a boy name byron robinson.now my friend has this feeling that byron may have sexaully molested a boy there.and my friend seems to have this feeling he may have been the victim.we'rnot sure why that is. but if it's true then he was sexually abused twice at that home.as well as at home.my god all mighty that place is about as safe as thing ice.those workers are so stupit they would give a 4 year old a shot gun so that child would think it would be funny to shoot people!!!there was one worker who was suppose to be a good person.but now that has change.her name was ellane jenson.she didn't steped in to stop jack brooks from beating my friend.if any one says that place was safe is a lier.i wouldn't be a bit surpriced if some of kids were bing raped at that home.

i think the kids do something to the other kids at night.oh how shell i put this?well there was a boy there name marty zack that my friend didn't like.well one time he would get a wet wash cloth then go in to someone's room and drips water on them to make then look like they wet their beds.my friend saw him doing that to another boy.and he's very sorry about that.now if this is another sexual assualt thing.then marty may have sexually assualted my friend too. god knows he was abused alot of times and never told any one.he kept it bottled up for a long time.all it and they did to him was it made him sick.and for a long time he lived in a draem world of his own.at the time he would'nt get himself ajob he thought of himself as a 12 year old.you take my word if you had met him you wouldn't be abul to tell if he was a man or child. oh it was really bad at that time.at one he tryed to pretend like it never happen.im telling you that home was bad for him.it was hard on his mother too.

the way i see the lake park wild rice children's home in fergus fall mn. it was a holy and a pyschological terror.one worker name doug monroe was really bad.we think he may well be mentally unbalanced.they didn't reallycare about the kids.but the money they were makeing.and they were trying to brain wash him.you what i think?i think they try to create more problums fo him and the other kids just to keep him there.allso i think all my friend was doing was sending them on a wild goose chace.i think he turned the home in to a circus.

scott hayden
scott hayden

the lake park wild rice children's home was allways abuseing kids for one thing or another.they were too punitive.it seems like abuse is all they understand.there was a little boy name john peabody who may well be afraid to eat.well when he didn't eat the workers were aways beating him.why would anyone be that stupit?! it's seems to me that that's how they solve there problume by violents.they were sick and so stupit all they know how to do is abuse kids they are not capabal of anything eals. i wouldn't be a bit surprised if they sexualy abused him or the athere kids too.the workers dodn't really care about the kids.all they care about is money.my friend was abused and sexualy abused.there at the children's home and at home.he was sexually abused by a teacher name my brewster when he was 4 5 and 6.he was abused by his teacher at woodlake school.that is why his mother couldn'd handel him.so in a way they sand him to thet evil place so he could be abused even more.that children's home was not of god but of the devil.it's cursed.before that home was built there was another home that burnd down a long time ago.im sure someone had a good reason to do that.maybe those kids were being abused too.and my friend was sexualy asulted.fergus falls was never his home he hated that stupit town and wishs something really bad would happen to that sick town.well he's not doing well now because of then.if anyone who thinks that place was any good then i say you my as well say that the nazi death camps were good to the jews. and if anyone who thinks the home was helping the kids then i say you may as well say that the nazi were helping the jews. i think doug monrol may well be a nazi.

the workers were allways foriceing him to go camping with the boy scouts in fergus falls.the kids were allways mean to the kids from the home.they sexually assault him.one time they through him out side in the cold.the adults were not around.he hated boy scouts.alot of the kids in fergus falls seem to have so much hate in them.they allways make trouble for the kids from the home.they always harrass the kids from the home.so going to school there wouldn'd be worth it.and the workers were always foriceing the kids in to something they want no part of.this may or may not be a good thing to say,but they are as good as rapeing the kids sorry about that.but it may well be true.they don't give the kids enough freedam to let the kids to think for themselfs.the home and that town is a curse.with all the abuse they were dumbing the kids down. why harrass kids who were being abused?my friend needed more protecktion from the home then from his dad.he was endanger there.i can't believe anyone would put their kids in harms way by puting them in a place like that. he was neglected too.that home was not safe.he never relly like christmas partys or haveing christmas there.they were messing around with his head.

the lake park wild rice children's home in fergus falls mn was a bad place unhealth and unsafe for kids.there was one fat worker name ron monson who tryed to hold one boy over the tall brige and tryed to drop him.really these kids are being put in endanger,why is that?allso they set some very bad examples for the kids.they were stupit!my friend was a victim of child neglect and abuse and sexual abuse and emotional abuse.so where was child protection service?i don't think there were any at the time.i don't think the workers were even screened.i think we should find all the kids who went there who may have been abused there.they allso tryed to slow down one child's education.i think they did that to alot of kids.my friend has kept the abuse to himself for a long time.now he wants to get every one's attention.he was even abuse at boy scouts.what i don't understand is why do all the kids in fergus falls harrass the kids from the home who were being abused? shame on them all in fergus falls.my friend hated that home and that bad town.he hated christmas plays becouse he was forced to be in it. and xmas partys too.the workers even called him names and make fun of him.they were not helping him.

the lake park wild rice children's home in fergus falls was a nightmare!!it was never my friend's home nor the town.why is it that the off ground kids(as they were called at the time)were always harrassing the kids who were being abused and sexually abused at the home?they even sexually harrass kids.they even told lies about the kids.my friend was abused at home too,and neglect too.he hated that place.they disrespect him.one worker name ron munson showed a lack of respect for the hearing impared.my friend is close to being deaf.he can't always hear becouse of back ground noice. sue sheel was another worker he didn't like.she acted stupit look stupit and even sounded stupit.my friend says she may well be retarded,but i think that's just talk.his dad also hated that woman.

we believe the lake park wild rice was corrupt,they took advantage of the kids. and of my friend's mom and dad. my friend needed more protecktion from them then from his father.that home was not his home.it never was.he never liked christmas plays.becouse the kids were not doing it for themselfs. they were doing it for the workers.the kids were forced to do that.we feel the kids should have had christmas at home not there.and another thing,(oh how shell i put this?)well, my friend dose not think it's right for the workers to make us make xmas preasents for mommy and daddy and just give it to them.becouse it might bring back to many bad memberys. same thing with mother's and father's day. so you see? if my friend ever found anything he gave to his mom and dad that was from the home he would take it and throuw it away.so we think it would be a mastake for the home to make us do that.now if we didn't want to give soto mom and dad then we have to give something to the worker.now that would be inappropriate!!they don't deserve it.not when a place as bad as that when they abuses kids. and thanksgiving is just as bad.now some kids were aloud to go home for christmas. but a few do not.there were some as young as 9 who had to stay at the home for xmas. now if one of them sherd a room with a older boy like steve camacho.you sure can bet that steve sexually molested that little boy.and aif a child as young as 7 or 8 was to go there say like 2 or 3 weeks before xmas. then they have to have xmas at the home.now that's bad!!i would like judtice for my friend.

lake park wild rice children's home in fergus falls mn abuse kids they should be held accountable.they are crimanals!!!!!!!!!!! there was this one worker name lois stillwill who put her hand in a boy's pants.how would you like to be forced to go to the stupit special olympus, whther you want to or not or whether your retarded or not?well thats what they did.it would or it might be the same as rapeing women,then again maybe not. but call it something.one time my friend was accused of doing something that he did'nt do. because he has no membering of brakeing anyone's glasses.so for years he felt he was innocent.then on the other hand i don't think he never stop to think that he may have over looked something he never thought of.what if he was being threaten in some way, what if that woman was trying to lure him away? now if that's the case then he was trying to deffend himself. he may have a membery loss.so what i don't understand is what was that stupit woman doing harrassing him in the first place? he did'nt know her. she had no bussniss harrassing him. what we like to know is who was that woman? i would like to see justice for my friend.now any parent who send their kids to that home was puting their kids in harms way. my friend was abused and sexually abused there too. if he was there may be a good chance that other kids were too. so we should look for them all.there was another worker who threaten him saying that he would like to pull on his penis with the pliyers his name was parry knutson.
