In this second part, host Tammi Stefano starts out by stating that the details of the horrors these two women experienced in the LA County jail are far worse than what was revealed in Part 1 of this interview. As part of an apparent human experiment, the women were kept confined, not in a cell block where two people occupy one cell, but in what is described as a "cage." "K" explained that "cage" is the correct term, and that 193 women were transferred into this cage with no bathroom, and no guard, for almost 30 days in the month of December, 2012. They slept on bunk beds, 3 to a bed, and only about 8 inches separating each mattress above, making it difficult to get in and out. She goes on to explain that due to racist attitudes among the prisoners, women would be trying to kill each other inside this cage when they were left alone at night. There was also no heat in this cage, and it was in the winter, where temperatures would drop below 30 degrees at night. The inmates were only give one thin blanket. This horrible environment was especially difficult for the elderly women, and those pregnant. The two women being interviewed were in separate cages, each with close to 200 inmates, during this time. Jessica talked about how those with medical conditions were supposed to get lower bunks, but many did not. She referenced a nurse who had terminal cancer, and was serving a sentence for allegedly writing a $400.00 bad check to get life-saving medicine for her condition. These women saw unbelievable horrors while incarcerated, including terrible violence and death, some of which they discuss in this interview.
Los Angeles County Jail for Women: What goes on behind closed doors, locked fences, and steel bars? Should most of these women be in jail, or should they be recognized as victims who were abused and often trafficked? Two former prisoners from LA County Jail for Women were recently interviewed on the National Safe Child Show, with host Tammi Stefano. Meet two woman who experienced horror, including human experimentation. Kay and Jessica decided to speak out as they both were forced to participate in psychological human experimentation. They talk about the women they met in jail, including one woman who was kept in a cage for 10 years prior to her arrest! Is putting these women in jail, many who are forced into drug addiction, "reabusing" them?
Claire Rembis, the homeschool mother of the 11 children who were abducted in Colorado recently and brought back to Texas, was interviewed Friday, September 2nd by Tammi Stefano of the National Safe Child Show. The show begins with Claire on the phone with Ms. Stefano while still wrapping up a monitored visitation with some of her children who were recently taken into custody by Texas CPS in Lubbock, Texas. Claire is upset while trying to wrap up her visit to do the interview, because she was reportedly only allotted one hour of time with her daughters, and when she took a short break to use the bathroom about 45 minutes into the visitation, they took her daughters away before she could even say goodbye. The story of the Rembis family, and how Texas CPS has repeatedly harassed their family and taken away their children even though the parents have never been charged or convicted of anything wrong, is starting to gain national attention. Their only crime simply seems to be that some people think they have too many children, and that they have publicly criticized Texas CPS. Listen to this interview as a tearful mother explains how her children suffered abuse, including sexual abuse, while in foster care the first time Texas CPS took her children. Today, she does not even know where her children are.
Tammi Stefano of The National Safe Child Show recently interviewed Jewels Stein, a mother who had her daughter taken by Los Angeles County’s Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS) following accusations of Munchausen by proxy by UCLA medical physicians. Jewels Stein is a paramedic with the Fire Department who has an extensive medical background. She works on movie sets, and she is currently producing a documentary. She raised four of her own children and two step children. On the day her 15 year old daughter was to be discharged from the hospital after a successful surgery that allowed her daughter to eat food again instead being fed by a tube inserted directly into her stomach, Jewels Stein watched in horror as they took her daughter away from her because she refused to let her be put on powerful psych drugs. She was escorted out of the hospital while still in her pajamas, and left on the street without even her car keys. This is her story that she wants the world to hear.
Julian J. Dominquez, the author of "A Culture of Fear: An Inside Look at Los Angeles County’s Department of Children & Family Services" (DCFS), is a former social worker for LA County DCFS. Mr. Dominquez recently left his career of 18 years with DCFS which included working as an emergency response worker, family maintenance and reunification worker and a dependency investigator. In addition, he created and conducts training for child welfare and other support agencies and is a licensed marriage and family therapist. In this shocking interview, Mr. Dominquez tells the world just how corrupt LA County DCFS is, revealing inner policies and practices that harm children and families, not protect them. From an insider perspective, Mr. Dominquez tells us how reports against parents are falsified by managers who have no contact with the families, how parents are being labeled Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy when they have legitimate medical concerns for the child, and how parents are losing their children because they are asking for a second medical opinion. How long will we as a nation allow such corruption to exist in our child "protection" social service agencies as apparently exists in LA County, the largest Child Social Service agency in the United States?
