Petition Closed
Petitioning NEW YORK TIMES and 3 others

Look into the corruption in Chemung County, New York and the criminal neglegence that has left the children in the hands of a hibitual criminal and abuser

There are Eight children (five of the children are mine plus the three and two more on the way - soon to be10) in Elmira, NY; County of Chemung that have been left in the custody of a woman (Chicree Wilson Jackson) with 40 plus neglect charges and a convicted drug dealer (Virdes "Vito" Jenkins - 3 Class B Felonies and also a known women beater). The Local Child Protective Office has charged the father (SPC. Dia Jackson – 14 years of service in the U.S. Army Reserves) with 25 counts of neglect, whom when all this started in 2009 was overseas for training with the US Army Reserves in Germany. I have lived in other states during the time and the County Officials charged with protecting my children have covered up as well as crossed jurisdictions to cover their tracks - like when they called to Ohio and stated an investigation on the Father. The Local Law Guardian has made statements that the Father has no credibility, and then along with The Local Child Protective Office proceeded to petition the court to allow the drug dealer to live in the home. The Local Child Protective Office and Regional Over-site in Rochester have refused to admit any wrong doing even when one of the children admitted that her mother was coercing her, plus the daughter’s own admission of sexual misconduct since she was five was over looked even after incidents reported by the school system that would go to show a pattern. Then after the willful admission by the mother (Chicree) that she violated a court order by selling drugs in the presence of the children, a Local Child Protective Worker (Sandy Gilbert) took over 60 days to turn in the violation (which Chicree received a slap on the wrist and then was sent her home to the children). In October of 2010 the mother (Chicree) left one of the younger children alone in a housing complex; soon after the Local Child Protective Service charged the mother, found her guilty, yet left the children in her care. During the State of Emergency in the region the mother filed a false claim for Food Stamps and proceeded to have a flat out Block Party with the proceeds. The County of Chemung has willfully refused any wrong doing even thou the father has served them documentation of C.P.S. workers willful and criminal negligence. Many Officials have been called or written since -  like the Local and State Parole Offices, The Law Guardians Office (Paul Satori), The District Attorney's Office of Chemung County, The Drug Task Force and Police Agencies, The Chemung County Executive (Tom Santulli), The Elmira Mayor’s Office, Chemung County Department of Social Services (Commissioner of Human Services Deretha Watterson), NYS Office of Children and Family Services, NYS Senator Tom O'Mara 53rd District, and many others have been involved but turned their heads or refuse to listen. I think the Governor and the Attorney General need to look into these allegations to protect all the children in the home. Please sign this petition - these children need protection since the county and courts have taken my life and turned it into shambles. Everything is backed by a Document – they call it a paper trail and I have mine – PLEASE SIGN.
