My husband was accused of hurting a neighbors child. The child was running from my home after trying to break a window with rocks knowing my 2 year old was looking out of it. My husband opened the door and the child took off running, jumped over a large electric box across the street, and landed on his side , face , arm. He asked if was ok and once he got near him, the child started to attack him. He picked him up and he was attacked more. He held him around the waist and attempted to bring him to his home. As he approached the road he put him down but held his wrist so he didn't run away again and could get him back to his home. The grandmother came out as they approached the end of his road - yet filed a report saying she saw him throwing him down and dragging him which was 2 roads over. There are witnesses that she was NOT there. Later that day, The police were seen driving around and even slowed down and looked at my husband and children walking from the park. Later that day, The police were seen driving throughout our development and even slowed down and looked at my husband and children walking to the park. 10 am this morning, my husband had my 2 year old on the porch outside and my 2 other children were inside. I woke heading banging on the side door. An officer asked where my husband was. I said I just woke up I think in the house. Then he bolted back out the door as another officer had taken my husband off the porch, KNOWING my baby was on the porch in HIS care - put him in handcuffs and left my daughter alone. I had NO idea she was out there, as I was on the opposite site of the house asking why he was being arrested. I was told to back up and I would be spoken to,. I stood in the side entry door waiting, and my husband asked both officers over and over 'why am I being arrested' and he was told 'You do not need to know that now' so my husband yelled to me ' they wont tell me why im being arrested'. So, I waited in the doorway for the officer to tell me what was going on, and he got back in his car and sped off and the other car sped off with my husband. I went inside and sat right down to call the neighbors who witnessed everything the day prior, THINKING my kids were protected from what just happened. Then I hear my step-son scream to me 'Rosalie's screaming in the road'. The officer arrested my husband, KNOWING that he was with a 2 year old, failed to protect her or mention she was on the porch to the other officer, never once addressed me and had me move away to talk to me after. He Purposely left and had no concern for the child. There was no fighting, no resistance, no arguments. This was gross negligence or reckless endangerment of a minor child, who is just starting to recover being her dad was in Missouri for 8 months with his parents and went thru terrible separation issues and is being treated for such even now She has been showing the same signs again, screaming and hiding and looking for him, being for the past 2 months he is the careprovider and I am working This is so she can hopefully heal from the separation trauma. The ride to the police station, he asked them again, 'So you wont tell me why Im being arrested' and the driver said 'You don't need to know yet'. NEVER was he questioned about the incident prior to them arresting him, however I was told by the officer later today that they interviewed neighbors and they purposily did not stop at my home. I told the officer my stepson was the ONLY person to have a full view of the events and they refused to take his statement. They also told me I had no right to put a complaint
on file for the child physically harming my daughter and attemptng to seriously injure her, nor all of the vandalism he has caused over the past week. They also failed to talk to the main office of our complex who have numerous complaints on file as this child is violent
and destructve and is running around at 9 years of age at 12 at night and has snuck into my home and taken food from my freezer. Lastly, the accusation says that he incurred bruising and cuts and soreness after he was thrown down 2 times. They took a violent childs statement but never bothered to speak to the key witness nor my husband. I do have legal aid being given to us, but I need advise on everything that occured as well as if I should speak to the civil liberties union. Once the court
date is held, I feel confident I can EASILY have both the child and the grandmother charged with defamaton of character she has been telling everyone lies , purgery, filing a false report and child neglect being the child is in HER care and he is out from 10am until very very late doing these horrible crimes. Is there a law that says I have the right to file a complaint regarding all of the other issues we have been having with him? not the same case . If I do, and they are still refusing to take it - what do i do???
