Texas Judge Orders Removal of YouTube Video Exposing Abuse in Foster Care System

Texas Judge Orders Removal of YouTube Video Exposing Abuse in Foster Care System | The New Public Administration: Arctic Bridge for Social Justice | Scoop.it
HOUSTON, Texas -- In a continuing cover-up by Child Protective Services (“CPS’) in Texas, Judge Keith Dean this week ordered the removal of a YouTube video produced by a 13-year-old boy that exposes the sexual and physical abuse that he and his brother endured while in CPS foster care. The video also reveals the 377-day nightmare suffered by him and his six siblings after they were ripped from their loving family and placed in four different foster care facilities out of county. The mother told Breitbart Texas “they are trying to rake this abuse under the rug.” Breitbart Texas has procured the YouTube video from a source outside the family.
