Petition to Darlington School Board of Trustees

Stop Darlington School from Silencing Its Victims of Childhood Sexual Abuse.

UPDATE! Thank you to everyone for your support! Signing this petition, sharing the petition, donating any amount of cash to help us keep this petition circulating and reaching others is all vitally important. Your support is needed more than ever. Last Friday, December 16, in Floyd County, Darlington survivors filed for dismissal without prejudice of the case pending in Floyd. The hearing scheduled for Dec. 18, was in response to Darlington’s filing to dismiss the victim’s legal claims. Instead, the survivors elected to dismiss the case themselves. Thus the “dismissal without prejudice.” Darlington Survivors have not dismissed forever the fact that the abuse took place at the hands of Roger Stifflemire and that Darlington has known for years and done nothing. From the survivors facebook post, “As Darlington continues its attempts to avoid responsibility for failing each of us and the Darlington Community as a whole, we have decided to take this path toward justice”. So please understand that this fight is not over. Your ongoing participation is vital! The dismissal without prejudice of a case means the matter can, and in this case, will be brought before a court of law again. There are two things you can do help: First: Join us to advocate for and support the passing of “The Hidden Predator Act”, Georgia House Bill 605 (HB605). The bill was introduced in March of this year, but did not advance to a vote. The bill comes up again in January 2018 and would subject those who engage in human sex trafficking to civil claims, and would give the state’s attorney general the ability to file claims against those culpable in such cases of public importance. It would also extend the statute of limitations for civil claims filed by victims of childhood sexual abuse. This law would allow lawsuits against institutions that knew or should have known abuse occurred, authorizing suits against the institutions as well as the perpetrators. You can read the bill here: Find more details from the AJC here: It is very important for us to educate Georgians about the need for this bill so please contact one, or better yet all of your legislators and reach out to the members who support this non-partisan bill. Rep. Jason Spencer R - Woodbine, 404.656.0177 Spencer Frye D - Athens, 404.656.0265 Mary Margaret Oliver D - Decatur, 404.377.0485 Paulette Rakestraw, R - Powder Springs, 404.656.0177 Buzz Brockway, R - Lawrenceville, 404.656.0188 Stacey Evans, D - Smyrna, 404.656.0116 Second: Continue to share this petition and this information to everyone, giving if you can 1 to 20 dollars to keep this growing. Your support will educate Georgians and hold institutions and predators responsible for their actions. There should be no expiration date for child abuse in Georgia! We will keep you posted-also follow Darlington Survivors on Facebook and the website . THE FOLLOWING WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED DECEMBER 8,2017, PLEASE READ FOR DETAILS ON THE CASE On December 18, 2017 a judge will decide whether the lawsuit against Darlington School merits proceeding. Darlington is attempting to silence its victims by requesting their charges be dropped. Please support the victims by encouraging the school to allow its victims' voices to be heard in court. More than once, Darlington was notified of inappropriate behavior and sexual assaults perpetrated by Roger Stifflemire, a former teacher and dormitory proctor. From 1974 to 1994, the private school continued to employ him, never formally punishing him, going so far as to honor him in a 2002 ceremony for excellence. This story remains on their website today. Roger Stifflemire was able to move to an Alabama high school with presumably no trace of his criminal behavior at Darlington. In 2014 a former student notified Darlington again about misconduct occurring in the 1980s. In response the school began an investigation. In 2015, an unprecedented opportunity arose when the Georgia Legislature passed the Hidden Predator Act. This provided a two-year window for victims to take legal action against their alleged abusers. Darlington was presented with another opportunity to carry out its mission to "Act with Integrity" by reaching out to former students, faculty and staff. In May 2017, nearly three years after beginning its investigation, Darlington did send a letter to alumni asking them to come forward with any information related to sexual misconduct. This allowed only thirty-five days before the Hidden Predator Act expired. Darlington has yet to release the information about its investigation. Please show your support for the victims by signing this petition to encourage Darlington School to hold itself accountable for its decades-long failure to protect its students.

ISD FAILS TO REPORT Hazing and sexual abuse in Forney ISD! #fixFISD #fixfisd

Hazing, sexual assault and a hostile school environment are a systemic problem in Forney TX ISD.  This has been going on for years and the leaders aren't reporting properly!  #fixFISD #fixfisd I recently confirmed that sexual assault hazing involving 'tea bagging' has been an issue in band as well and has been a 'tradition'.  It's not just the soccer team at this school.    5 people have been arrested recently, but it's unfortunately just addressing the immediate trouble makers. A brave young student and his family reported this assault in mid December and our coach and officials apparently didn't bother reporting it to police until January.   The soccer coach and principal are still on duty and the soccer team just went right back to playing games.  Our leaders place careers and the feelings of potential abusers over the safety of our children and the safety of victims.  They should have removed the coach and other leaders until police have finished investigating and cleared them from wrong doing.  Instead they protect themselves. As a parent, I've approached the leadership in both schools my kids attended.   At the high school, despite everything in the news, I was greeted with 'what hazing?' from the front desk and the principal.  At the middle school I came to report a rumor of a planned fight by kids that day and I couldn't get to see administration until 12:30 in the afternoon.  If you believe failure to report child abuse is wrong please support my petition for accountability in FISD.    If you believe the administration should have removed this soccer coach and principal until police finished all investigation please support our petition for change. My name is Stephen Weed and we've pulled our children from FISD, because I don't see good leadership and I fear my kids could be the next victim.  I'm fighting for the FISD and I could really use your help so our kids have a voice and this isn't just swept under the rug.   You can vote for this petition publicly or vote privately.  Silence just allows it to continue happening for more years ahead.

D.C.S.F./Child Protective Services Reform/Stop False Allegations!

On a daily basis, Children are taken away illegally from their parents by Child Protective Services and The Department of Children Family Services social workers due to false allegations of Child abuse.   The children are then subject to rape,molestation,abuse,neglect and murder while under the care of foster parents. I seek a NATIONWIDE/WORLDWIDE bill to impose a law that fines $10,000 for the misuse of the child protective abuse reporting hotline.   I seek the family and children's courts have a burden of proof of 100%,with clear and convincing physical evidence/preponderance of evidence.I also seek the fining and civil and criminal prosecution of such persons including social workers,medical providers,judges,and officers who knowingly falsify or omit reports,evidence,statements,or enter a home without a warrant.   I seek an internal audit of the financial,family reunification and adoptions records of the department of children family services and child protective services from their beginning to current time.i seek audio and visual cameras be installed on social workers,judges,police officers and those working with children, to assist with honesty,ethical behavior and accountability.   i seek all those making reports of child abuse give video recorded statements and signed statement testimony under penalty of perjury also being required to attend to court to face the accused.I seek the imprisonment of social workers who fail to act on due dilegence to notify fathers and families of a child’s illegal detention as well as an online database for social workers who illegally abuse their positions and for giving false information or created false claims of bench warrants that never existed or threatening parents to get restraining orders against each other despite no domestic history with threats that children cannot be obtained without one otherwise.   I seek children's court be made open to the public as well as there be juries assigned to children's court with the burden of proof being 100%with physical evidence to show proof of child abuse,may no child be removed from home without such proof of abuse base upon hearsay comments or false allegations.   I would like to refer this as the ROBINSON H.O.M.E. Act BILL. This petitioner's life has been marred in tragedy, and pain.Growing up in the system herself,Born into the system til age 18,living in over 50 different foster placements,group homes and facilities,the petitioner experienced foster care daily rape,molestation,forced to eat feces,starved,left in a nook under a staircase,had nose broken,and as a child I was trafficked ,abused,neglected, abandoned and,tortured & more, later had children ,a set of twins and son born of rapes illegally adopted from her.   The petitioner would later have twins again and a newborn and these children are now facing the same ordeal.Due to the false allegation and social working falsification of case files ,the mother has lost her section 8 housing as dcsf claimed she had a warrant that never existed,has lost her friends,her extended family hates her, and treats her as a pariah,her income has been affected,and the daily torture of knowing her kids have been sexually abused and neglected in the system has caused extreme pain and suffering.   the mother has also been forced to pay the food stamp welfare cash aid programs all the money they gave her for her children back just because they were illegally detained.the social worker continues to abuse the section 8 public housing,welfare ,food stamp,cash aid,wic,child support,Title IV programs to track children & take children away from parents.   At birth the twins were put on ssa temporarily due to prematurity.when mother attempted to stop SSI Services,as kids were no longer disabled and had grown more,The Burbank SSA office told her the social worker was the beneficiary of the ssi payments instead of kids and gave me a paper saying it.the petitioner is beside herself in grief,depression and morbid sadness due to the false allegations and due to the losses of her family and life pains. this petition was drawn up so no other family would suffer the utter sense of distress,bereavement,loss,anguish,and turmoil that false allegations can cause as was experienced by petitioner.   May no other family be broken apart due to false allegations or corrupt organizations abusing their power for financial or infernal purposes.This bill was drafted up due to a false allegation of partner abuse which led to the illegal search,seizure, entry into a home by police with keys,while the family was naked in tub and legal and emotional horrors that ensued despite the person making allegation admitting to legal aid,law enforcement,child protective and other authorities,neighbors,friends of petitioner and sources that he lied and forensic evidence proving such.   The male was part of a homeless group of friends the petitioner took of the streets to help but false allegations of ex partner abuse came up when it was time to leave the residence.The children were all adopted despite not being in home at time of false allegation.   This family is now  ILLEGALLY ADOPTED and since the petitioner had a newborn,child protective services department of children family services wants the newborn simply because she was born with social worker claiming because mother no longer had other children it was justification for removal. It wasn’t until children were illegally seized the mother found out about other 13 false complaints she was never even told of which dcsf had in other secret case files.All the complaints were unsubstantiated and unfounded with family always being clean,happy,safe and content.   THE MOTHER HAS NO DRUG OR DRINKING HISTORY AND COMPLETED ALL SERVICE CASE PLANS TO GET FAMILY TIMELY.Despite no allegation of abuse to incorporate the newborn into a financial adoption package. The newborn daughter was recently illegally detained captured in January 2017 and the social worker refuses to tell fathers that children are being illegally adopted or even allow the mother to see kids or call them.the social worker has never notified mother of any court dates or hearings and went as far as creating fake false bench warrants that never existed for the mother to steal her children.   The mother has filed legal appeals,lawsuits,grievances,complaints,with law enforcement,cps,dcsf,judicial committee,the city,county,state,Citizen's Commission on Human Rights,Rainbow Coalition,Senators/Congressman Ted Donnelly and Tony Cardenas,Adrin Nazarian etc.The Mother tried to seek help at a Nun Convent,go abroad,on islands,as well as homeless shelters ,renting rooms etc to  protect children from system and went to find legal aid. search :under the three petitions 1)stop false child abuse/neglect allegations! 2)DCSF/Child Protective Services  Reform/Stop False Allegations! 3)Stop Illegal Adoptions!  search: Child Protective Services/Department Children Family Services Illegal Adoptions Corruption Reform/Stop False Allegations Search: Stop Department Children Family Services/C.P.S/Title I.V.
