PROTECT SHELBY WHO WAS SENT TO LIVE WITH HER PERPETRATOR ON SEP. 6TH!!

      Ms. Jones

      Panama City, FL

Shelby was sent to her perpetrator on September 6th, 2012, to be further sexually abused.  Please check http://protectshelby.com under "Updates" for the details.  This is an inhumane act of injustice to my child.  We need to take this petition to a higher level with more signatures.  Shelby needs to be rescued by Child Protect, RAINN,  and other Organizations who can team up and protect our children from such horrific abuse and the Family Courts. 

There is a history of sexual abuse by the father reported by the professionals. 

This child needs to be protected from further sexual abuse by thoroughly investigating this matter by law enforcement.  This matter has not been thoroughly investigated by any law enforcement, DHR, or any other agency I have sought for help in this matter.

    1. Shelby was not protected from further abuse!!

      Jurisdiction was not changed to Florida from Alabama. On September 5th and 6th, 2012, a hearing was held by Enterprise, Coffee County, Alabama.. Shelby, my 9-year old daughter, was sent to live with her perpetrator. There were 2 Professional doctors that testified on behalf of Shelby to protect her from further horrific sexual abuse. Shelby has been disclosing bravely to professionals who have reported asexual buse since 2006, which all reports have been overlooked with a striking lack of empathy and never investigated. This child is a brave and courageous little girl who deserves to be protected from further sexual abuse. Shelby is in serious danger! Please sign the petition to send to a higher level in the hopes that Shelby can be rescued. Thank you for your support.

    2. Our mission is to protect Shelby from further horrific abuse!!

      Ms. Jones

      We thank you all for your support in protecting Shelby from continued sexual abuse. Reports state that she has been punished severely after she has bravely disclosed to professionals throughout the past 6 years. One of her punishments mentioned is she will not be given food for over 24 hours at a time, and threatened by statements such as: "he is going to kill everybody". This is a horrific crime tha has been neglected for many years. No child should ever be ignored and not believed. The damaging effects of not protecting a child after they have bravely disclosed the truth are extensive.

      Thanks to all the brave children and parents that fight this battle publically, enduring slander, financial set backs, and heartache in the public eye. As brought to light in the Sandusky case, abusers may have prestige, money, and charisma that make it hard for people to believe that they are capable of such a horrific act. Thanks for caring.

      There has been no court date set in Alabama. It is surprising that this type of emergency has been neglected by the elected officials.It is heartbreaking to know that children all over the US can be denied their right for justice.Something needs to be done on a federal level to put the states in synch on a better system to protect, not only Shelby, but other children who are abused.

      We are getting some momentum!!! Please share.

      Reminder: We DO want this case to be tried in the court system. We just want it to be tried in a different jurisdiction where there is no connection to....either party.
      There is evidence to support the claims, with testimony to corraborate the evidence. We are not trying the alledged abuser in the court of public opinion...we just want to stop the abuse NOW!!!

      Thanks to all who have shared their survivor stories. That type of bravery helps to shine a light on this crime and helps victims to become stronger.

      Colleen has expressed her gratitude and love for the outpouring of people joining together to help keep her beautiful daughter safe. Unfortunately, this is an incident that happens more often than publicized, with families and innocent children being lost in "the system". Once we get Shelby safely out of harm's way, we will be pursuing "Shelby's Law". This should not happen to another child....EVER again.
      Thanks again for your support and caring.

      I have met hundreds of mothers who have experienced the same civil rights violations in court, the right to protect her child from continued abuse. I pray for Shelby, that she be returned to her mother.

      I've seen personally the destruction that abused children have to overcome. I do not feel a court should haphazardly place a child's future in perile to avoid alienating a parents' rights. The rights and safety of the innocent child should be at the forefront of any and all judicial proceedings.

      I have children and would be disgusted by the miscarriage of justice and unthinking decision to put a little girl back in the custody of her rapists. This must be stopped. Please correct this travesty.

      Shelby and many thousands of kids like her are being destroyed by family courts who collude to give them to their identified perpetrators. Stop the madness.

      Nice try, Colleen, but you failed again! Shelby is proof positive that the truth will set you free! You should try it sometime, lying Hag!
