Plight of 2 Toddlers Puts Spotlight on L.A. County Family Program

Garrett Therolf, Los Angeles Times, March 11, 2014

Two hungry children were wandering the streets of South Los Angeles alone last week when they walked into a liquor store, searching for a loaf of bread.

At one point, they nearly headed across busy Manchester Boulevard until a passerby intervened.

The children’s ages: 2 and 3. Both wore soiled diapers when authorities picked them up.

This week, officials acknowledged that the children and their mother had been under the direct supervision of Los Angeles County’s child protective services agency. The family was enrolled in a program designed to help the mother keep her children while learning to be a better parent. A social worker had repeatedly cleared her as safe during monthly visits, and counselors hired by the county were meant to aid with the monitoring, according to sources familiar with the case.

The Department of Children and Family Services had allowed the mother, 32-year-old Sidnicka Wilson, to enter the program for relatively low-risk families even though she had lost six older children to the foster care system. She had a record of stealing and prostitution, court documents show. When she was arrested, police say she had cocaine in her possession.

Family Maintenance is meant to serve as a six-month intervention strategy for children at relatively low risk of abuse. It allows them to remain with their parents while their families are offered counseling, emergency shelter care, parent training, substance abuse testing and transportation.

Caseworkers are supposed to offer a family only two three-month extensions beyond the first six months, and only if they can show that the parents are complying with the department’s demands and demonstrating that safety risks will be removed. Further extensions are meant to be rare, and they require approval by high-level officials in the department.

Nevertheless,1,600 of the children now in the program have remained there for more than 12 months.

After months of receiving services, police found last week that Wilson’s home was filthy with nothing but rotten food in the refrigerator. Officers said the boys looked malnourished and dirty.

Wilson was arrested on two felony counts of child abuse, one count of drug possession and misdemeanor charges that include giving false information to an officer. She is being held in county jail and her two boys were placed in foster care.

After Wilson’s arrest, police learned that her 3-year-old son had wandered into the liquor store looking for food at least twice before.

Wilson’s six oldest children were fathered by five men and were all removed by county caseworkers previously, according to sources familiar with the case but who spoke on the condition of anonymity. {snip}

The 3-year-old had been placed in foster care in 2011 after caseworkers substantiated that he was suffering from general neglect and that Wilson and the boy’s father were incapacitated or absent, the sources said. He was returned to the family in 2013 under a court order after caseworkers recommended reunification.

The youngest boy was also removed by caseworkers after he was born and was placed in foster care. But he was also returned last year.

Wilson herself was involved with the county’s foster care system as a child, the sources said.

She should have been flagged before the abuse of her first child started, said Marilyn Flynn, dean of USC’s School of Social Work.

“All our data tells us, this is the exactly the type of person where there is a high probability that she will abuse or neglect her child,” Flynn said. “Ideally, we would have identified this mother when she was in the hospital and we would have offered her support and training with her first child.”

    I think one reason why people like this fall through the cracks is black women’s habit of calling children’s services on each other when they get ticked off at each other. It would seem these workers are so busy checking out these claims, they don’t have time for legitimate complaints.

    Just my opinion.

    • ncpride

      The entire system is overwhelmed. The DSS in one NC county has been under fire recently because one of their own supervisors was abusing children in her care. A little boy was found chained to a porch with a dead chicken hanging around his neck…sheesh. They had to go back and re-investigate all open cases. People who make claims out of spite should be charged, but they need to look at WHO is in charge as well.

        Alinsky really was an evil genius.

        • Anon

          Not really. He simply repackaged a plan his people have developed over thousands of years of Satanism and hid both the racial and devil worshipping components (although he couldn’t resist dedicating his work to his dark lord, Lucifer, himself…and that’s literal, not figurative, his main work, Rules for Radicals is literally dedicated to Lucifer…HIS god….his people’s god).
          Without the thousands of years old conspiracy, especially the money put aside for all those generations to wage this race war, he would not have amounted to much.

      • joesolargenius

        I have spent three months trying to get the county I live in near charlotte to investigate the person in charge of adult medicaid for DSS , I caught her helping a charity care company scam millions of dollars from the state in exchange for a seat on their board of directors.

  • Kit Ingoldby

    Welfare encourages this type to breed.

    That is basically going to destroy civilisation if it allowed to continue.

    • LovelyNordicHeidi

      Dysgenic trends can be seen all over the news. Only if you state the obvious, you’re a Nazi. Liberals sure know how to stifle debates.

      • JSS

        Well this was exactly what the Nazis were trying to prevent.

    • Anon

      Really? What do you think is going to happen when welfare finally collapses?
      Before jewish supremacy redirected most of the collective effort of white people toward feeding and serving the negro, blacks and other races were well on their way to just disappearing as whites, more and more, became the main race on the planet. That is the natural order of things. Whites and ONLY whites can mass reproduce and provide for ourselves. Each white person born, adds to the worldwide wealth and provision for the world while non-whites do not. Blacks subtract substantially (the only race that does).
      The very second whites stop working themselves to death to hand right over to blacks, there will be a massive die off. 99% of blacks will starve within a year.
      Civilization is just a euphemism for white people. It exists in white people and white people ONLY. Non-blacks can participate but cannot originate civilization. Blacks cannot do even that (and have no interest beyond gibs me dat). Civilization is self-sustaining. Blacks are not.

  • Whitetrashgang

    Only 5 fathers? Well well society just keeps getting better.Does anyone know what shame is anymore?

    • Alexandra1973

      That’s a foreign concept to that type.

    • JohnEngelman

      I doubt if even she knows who the “fathers” are.

      • Whitetrashgang

        Well she probably has a good idea of at least what they might drive or smoke, or if they like rap music.

        • JohnEngelman

          I doubt they enjoy classical music and good literature.

    • Pro_Whitey

      And of course we’re all racists for criticizing her, but it’s perfectly acceptable to snicker at and deride a married white couple who are supporting themselves and have had that many children in wedlock, especially if the couple happens to be Catholic. I would bring in the Norplant if the woman has to go on welfare after one child, and I would force a vasectomy on the father, if we catch him (yes we can!), unless he coughs up sufficient support.

      • Tom_in_Miami

        I’d like to see more white people having six or eight children in wedlock, if they can afford to raise them.

    Sidnicka Wilson sounds like a poster baby for compulsory sterilization. Her children should be sterilized too, because they are likely to be just as useless and worthless as she is.

  • JohnEngelman

    Whenever I read about someone like this I am reminded that in addition to being brilliant and drop dead gorgeous, the valedictorian of my high school class never got married, she never had children. What a tragic waste of good genes.

    Meanwhile unemployable subhumans like Sidnicka keep urinating in the gene pool.

    The final irony is that the valedictorian of my high school is just as liberal as can be. Books she wrote about blacks are listed in the Library of Congress.

      DIdn’t know about this one. Thanks. Love this quote:

      “We have seen more than once that the public welfare may call upon the best citizens for their lives. It would be strange if it could not call upon those who already sap the strength of the State for these lesser sacrifices, often not felt to be such by those concerned, to prevent our being swamped with incompetence. It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes.”

  • Between her, her chilluns, and her chilluns’ chilluns, the cost to the taxpayers in terms of crime, incarceration, welfare, food stamps, etc. will be MILLIONS of dollars. And yet, the land of the freee-be says keep on breeding. A chastity belt seems appropriate for this creature.

    • Whitetrashgang

      Maybe a chastity beltway that would not go within 50 miles of her house, provided by you of course the taxpayer.

    • MBlanc46

      That’s a start anyway. I can think of other ways to control her.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      The government can’t have enough prolific, low IQ breeders. Keep bringing them into the country and get them breeding at a young age. The darker the skin and the more foreign the culture, the better. They’re in a rush to breed whitey out of existence.

    Sounds like a low risk to me… Compared to… oh… I don’t know… Osama bin Laden maybe.

    I can’t believe her name “Sidnicka”, it sounds so much like Sick-ni.. oh never mind.

    “….the children and their mother had been under the direct supervision of Los Angeles County’s child protective services agency. The family was enrolled in a program designed to help the mother keep her children while learning to be a better parent.”

    Yeah, it turned out the only way we could expect.

    • Whitetrashgang

      At this point she could be one of the talented 10 percent she is just ashamed to point it out.

  • Who Me?

    32-yr old Sidnicka Wilson, mother of 8. is allowed to keep her children, time and time again. Meanwhile in Mass. a 31-yr old married White mother who just gave birth to her first child is in dire danger of losing that child because of a FALSE positive on a drug test administered while she was in labor and the hospital alerted Child Protection. Repeated investigations have shown neither parent is in any way a user of any kind of drugs. The mother ate poppy seed muffins the day before delivery.
    Child Protection will waste hundreds if not thousands trying to snatch a newborn White baby from married White parents, while this woman, nearly the same age, has so far, produced EIGHT children and apparently after losing SIX of them, was still allowed to produce two more and keep them till now. She should have been sterilized after losing custody of the first batch.
    The world is upside down.
    Family services have been a rogue agency for as long as I can remember. They repeatedly return children to biological parents who beat, neglect, sexually abuse and finally kill the children. They remove White children from loving stable families for such things
    as home schooling them, other times for false positives on routine drug tests, and the like.

      There is a waiting list to adopt White babies and toddlers. Each such adoption enhances Family services’ adoption statistics. The fear that your White baby might be snatched and recycled by the state keeps White parents quiet, docile and fearful. The state likes us like that.

      The same does not apply to Blacks and Browns. The more little baskets these groups push out, the greater the degree of White-earned largesse they suck up. If this female is not neutered, she will produce more spawn as quickly as possible, to keep the goodies rolling.

    • Tom_in_Miami

      I wonder how many more children Miss Sidnicka will bear.

  • I often wonder if there is any correlation between parental incompetency and fertility.

    • Who Me?

      There is an inverse correlation. More intelligent people got an education so they get up every morning, get dressed and go to a job, where they stay, (on average) 8 hrs, and they do this 5 out of every 7 days (again, on average).
      Meanwhile the less intelligent, never having gotten past the 10th grade, are too lazy to get a job, outside the occasional robbery or home invasion. With no job, they are free to lay around the house all day, doing what makes babies with anybody who wanders past. This has the expected results = more babies that nobody bothers to properly care for.
      More intelligent means less time to make babies.

      • Reverend Bacon

        You two are saying the same thing. But it’s a direct correlation, not inverse. The inverse would have been if he said “competency” not “incompetency.”

        While we’re on the topic, this clearly seems to be a man-made correlation. We work hard, and have to work even harder to pay for the blacks to breed. The problem could be solved with a stroke of a pen. Reduce welfare, tie welfare to sterilization or some watered-down version thereof, kick out the illegals, sterilize violent criminals, stop wasting money trying to educate those who can’t be educated, and eliminate other wasteful policies that make us work harder to pay for them instead of relaxing and procreating.

        One wonders also if drugs were legal and welfare was severely reduced, where would young blacks get money to buy rap music? Would the entire glamorized aspect of the negro just disappear overnight? With the exception of a few actors and musicians, I guess. This, plus the elimination of the artificially created, government-sinecure-dependent black middle class, might mean that very few blacks would be able to miscegenate.

        Take away all the things propping up the dysgenics, and things look good.

  • itdoesnotmatter

    Wonder what the racial composition of CPS employees in L.A. County might be. Even taking into consideration bloated caseloads and the negligence handling this situation, I suspect it is tipped heavily in favor of the private phone call on the job, three inch nail, hair weave demographic.

    • De’Ontavious Jizzaiah Jones

      Several months ago I quit my job with a southern DCF. The problem is not incompetent case workers here. Rather there is now a nationwide policy with DCFs to keep children in home rather than foster care due to cost. Had I not quit, I would have been required to attend a month long 40 hours a week indoctrination into the new finegaled standards for reviewing whether kids could be left in homes rather than removed to foster care. It was all BS that I could no longer tolerate, along with a mandate for DCF attorneys to contact State prosecutors on behalf of primarily black criminal offenders in DCF case to try to get prosecutors to drop charges and refer poor little teen D’ Kwante to a diversion program instead – a school to prison pipeline initiative . So these case workers were just following a directive from their leadership. Expect more stories like this. No matter how many neglected children, courts cannot order birth control or sterilization. They can only take the little ferals away and maybe terminate Quantavia’s parental rights. Then a secondary scam ensues when the grandmother or aunt adopts them and gets an adoption subsidy plus IRS tax credits and free college. What I saw in 10 yrs at DCF opened my eyes never to be closed to realities of the black ghetto underclass.

  • JohnEngelman

    Norplant is a step in the right direction.

  • Reverend Bacon

    Norplant is no longer in use in the US. The maker never lost a lawsuit, but there were lots of mumblings about side effects. DepoProvera, the closest we have to that, must be given every 3 months or so. Perhaps every third time they recharge their EBT?

    Suggest they do a reversible sterilization, with that adjective only to appease the liberals and make it happen faster. It’s nuts to pay these people to breed more leeches and criminals.

  • JohnEngelman

    We should replace Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) with free abortion on demand.

    Every time someone like Sidnicka Wilson has an abortion she saves the tax payers a small fortune in welfare, public education for those who cannot be educated, and criminal justice expense.

    • De’Ontavious Jizzaiah Jones

      You would have to pay these women or give a free cell phone or flat screen tv. They want the babies bc babies equal Govt check and they hope baby can later be diagnosed with ADHD or some other disability do they can then get SSI until 18 birthday.

      • JohnEngelman

        OK, so let’s stop paying them government checks.

    Does anyone know of any organizations besides Planned Parenthood working to provide effective birth control to the urban underclass? I would like to work with groups that provide birth control like Norplant instead of abortion.

    • Reverend Bacon

      Yes- what used to be called, “Children Require a Caring Kommunity (CRACK).” I think it’s called Project Prevention. Here’s a website which might be that group of which I am thinking.
