Justice for Brook Stagles

We want Child Protective Service workers Colleen Mawn-Cufari and Kelly Powlen investigated for criminal charges and a complete investigation for not doing their job, which allowed this tragedy to continue. This is happening across America! UPDATE  SEP 15, 2017 — This was Brook's living conditions. Colleen Mawn-Cufari never went into the house and inspected anything. According to Mike Stagles, Colleen Mawn-Cufari only talked to Mike at the door. She was there to inspect her bedroom and living conditions. She was there for a living quarters inspection just like at Ashlee's house and reports of Erica Bell abusing Brook. Erica Bell was not even allowed to see her own children unsupervised, according to family court and CPS. Erica Bell had a warrant for her arrest at the same time she talked to Colleen. CPS never did their job. Brook died an agonizing and horrific death for three days. When she was not alone suffering, they were dragging her all over town, to buy drugs, go to babies are us, and a baby shower. Mike and Erica did their best to hide Brook from everybody by wrapping her up in Mike's shirts constantly and applying makeup to her to cover bruises. Over a hundred people had come into contact with Brook. Some in the medical field and others, parents them selves. This was all made possible because of the blatant disregard for Brook's life that Colleen Mawn-Cufari and Kelly Powlen showed. The Judge said this house is in-humane. The house was infested with bugs like there was a dead person in there for 2-3 days. There was drug paraphernalia everywhere. A motorcycle in the living room and basement(Brooks room). Officer's said this was the worst house they had ever seen. Colleen and Kelly needs to face criminal charges for their actions, Please help. CPS is run like a business that is failing and instead of losing money they are losing children. On November 14, 2016 in Rochester, NY Brook Stagles suddenly lost her short lived life; she was 3 years old and was beaten and suffered with internal injuries for days and later dies while she was on a visit with her biological father and his new girlfriend. Brooks death was ruled a homicide by the Coroners Office. There have been 4 prior cases presented to CPS throughout her short lived life. There has recently been an open CPS case with suspicion of child abuse. Repeated calls from multiple people were made to CPS by many family members on Brook's mother side of the family as well as neighbors and the social worker at CPS failed to return calls even after proof was given to them . We need signatures to show government that we don't want this to happen again to another child. Brook's death was a agonizing painful one and this horrific act of violence was completely AVOIDABLE! We would like the CPS Vigorously reformed! Please sign this petition, for the safety of all our children. We are there one and only voice! Update Rochester, NY......While Colleen Mawn-Cufari was investigating Erica Bell, Erica Bell had a warrant for her arrest the whole time. In fact according to CPS, Erica Bell was not even allowed to see her own children unsupervised, let alone be around Brook.CPS lied.How could Colleen Mawn-Cufari not know she had a warrant for her arrest the whole time she was under investigation by CPS. Colleen Mawn-Cufari worker was told multiple times that the bruises and marks started to happen when Erica Bell came into the picture. The CPS supervisor Kelly Powlen of Monroe County Child Protective Services was also told what was going on!! When we went to court October 31, 2016 for visitations to be documented in court, because this was going on!! Mike Stagles waived his right for a lawyer. The judge , my daughter Ashlee Geer and her lawyer , were all in agreement for a set court order schedule and Brooks Law Guardian Victoria Lagoe asked to reschedule because she wanted to talk to Brook first. (a 3 year old!).She said she would call us that week and never called. Brook died two weeks later.Brook suffered for 5-6 days or more with her internal agonizing injuries.  Prior to that, we talked to the father on Monday, a week before her death, and he said she had "the flu"so we believe she suffered much longer ! PLEASE HELP US HELP YOU  We need Child Protective Services reformed!!!!! Share!! Share!!! Share!!! We the people need to be a voice for our children's safety!!!!! Please share!!! Click here to GOOGLE BROOK STAGLES FOR ALL NEWS STORIES and NEWS PAPER ARTICLES! I want to thank all of you that have signed the petition so far. We need ALOT more signatures to reach our goal, in order to help make sure that Child Protective Services can actually do their job to protect all children that need it !Here's some facts about the number of cases of children dying from abuse. 505 substantiated deaths in New York State ALONE in 3 years is Unbearable. USA has one of the worst records of losing between 4 and 7 children a day to child abuse and neglect. Over 1800 children died in the USA last year and 70% of them were under 3 years old and it would be 30-50% higher now, because that was a 2014 statistic. 27% were avoidable. Another low number. We need to warn the public about  Child Protective Services.Together as a nation we can make it happen through the Justice for Brook petition.

Petition to Parole Board

Deny parole for DeMarko Quinta Carlisle AIS number 203532

On April 1, 1997, Jo Ann Watkins Busby was visiting her oldest daughter, who had been recovering from an operation. Tired, she decided to go home after first making a stop at a local retail store to pick up a few items. She went into the store, picked up a few things, preceded to the check out, and headed back out of the store toward her car. After unlocking her doors and getting in the driver seat, two teenage boys approached her, one standing on either side of the car. Both of them had loaded guns pointed at her. They demanded her purse, which contained the money she would need to be able to support herself through the duration of the month. She refused and began honking the horn of her car, yelling for help. That is when DeMarko Quinta Carlisle pulled the trigger. Jo Ann was shot fatally that night by DeMarko, who, after shooting her, ran away, not even taking the purse that he had tried so hard to get, the purse that cost Jo Ann her life. Jo Ann was a loving, compassionate, giving, and incredible person. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She was 56 years old when DeMarko ended her life. She left behind two daughters, six grandchildren, one sister, and countless friends. The devastation that came after her death cannot even be put into words. DeMarko has been incarcerated since he was sixteen years old. After murdering Jo Ann, DeMarko took a plea deal. He entered a guilty plea and was sentenced to four consecutive life sentences with the possibility of parole. The stipulations of his plea deal stated that he had to admit guilt and tell everything leading up to and after the moment. He admitted to trying to rob Jo Ann and, as a result of her blowing the horn and yelling for help, he shot her in cold blood. DeMarko is currently in St. Claire Correctional Facility where he has had several behavioral infractions since his last parole hearing. He has only served a tiny fraction of his sentence. By continuously getting into trouble, DeMarko has shown no signs of rehabilitation or remorse for his actions. He is a violent offender who ended a person’s life. He has never reached out to Jo Ann’s family to apologize and demonstrate that he is a changed man. DeMarko Quinta Carlisle should not be released from prison into the public where he could commit even more crime and inflict sadness for another family. We implore you to deny parole and keep our communities safe.
