Conyers To Hear Adam Walsh Central Registry Reauthorization

Conyers To Hear Adam Walsh Central Registry Reauthorization

On February 15, 2011, in the U.S. House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security, hearing will be held to address the Reauthorization of the Adam Walsh Child Protection and Safety Act in the 112th Congress, led by the second ranking member, John Conyers, Jr.

The timing is impeccable to address the issue of lack of due process in the placement and clearance of individual names from the Central Registry.

NEW YORK, NY, February 14, 2011 /EIN Presswire/ -- An important class action settlement was announced today that will help thousands of New Yorkers to return to work quicker. The settlement was reached with the Office of Children and Family Services ("OCFS") which operates the New York Statewide Abuse and Maltreatment Register. Before a person can work with children, the state law requires that employers must first obtain a clearance from the Register. Without a clearance, people can not work. The Register maintains a list of people who have been accused of maltreatment of children. Those who have been listed are entitled to a hearing to clear their names. However, sometimes hearings take more than a year to complete. While waiting for the hearings, people can not get jobs. When the hearings are finally held, up to 50 - 75% of the people are exonerated.

Maura Corrigan: Michigan's Cash Cow

Ricky Holland
Bill Johnson, Superintendent of Michigan Children's Institute authorized the adoption of Ricky Holland's two younger siblings to the murders during the murder investigation.

Ricky Holland was placed in foster care by his mother because there was no help for her. He was never removed for abuse and neglect.

Now, every time the Ricky's mother has another child to replace the one who was murdered by the State of Michigan, the State of Michigan comes and cuts the umbilical cord.

I used to have in my possession some of the case transcripts where the foster murderer was testifying on the scheme to dope up Ricky Holland with the highest dosages of psychotropics in order to get more money.

There are many reasons why this case is so dear to me, why I swore I would never let Ricky Holland's memory fade away, but I will only share one.

Michigan's Cash Cow

Michigan's Cash Cow had the audacity to run a statewide commercial paid with undisclosed funds in to the tune of $80,000 asking the people of Michigan to call the Supreme Court and thank her for "all she has done for foster care and adoption" in order for her colleagues to elect her as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.  She was not elected.

It was at that moment I began my mission...
