I honestly just recently found out about these atrocities, but growing up inundated media, I was never informed that we even had slaves. Sure, I had seen the movie Blood Diamond, but I never knew that this modern-day slavery extended to such common household products such as cotton shirts.

Getting Away with Murder August 29, permalink The press has discovered that four children died in Arkansas foster care this year, but DHS refuses to provide details, shielding themselves behind a law protecting the confidentiality of children.
In any other situation a person concealing evidence of a death would be charged as an accessory after the fact, but not a bureaucrat. Even at that, Arkansas is ahead of Ontario, where we have nothing better than statistical estimates of the number of children dying in foster care.
Our list of foster deaths includes only one in Arkansas during the last year. Keyundra Smith, 22 months old, died in Eudora Arkansas on May 28,attributed to the dubious shaken baby syndrome.
Foster mom Eleisha Sykes has been accused. But DHS has refused to release information about the nature of the deaths except to say that two of them are under investigation as maltreatment cases.
Even after the State Police made an arrest in one of those cases on Aug. Which raises the questions: When is DHS justified in withholding information about foster-child deaths?
What sort of information should it be able to conceal? Is the public's need to know about the circumstances of the deaths outweighed by DHS's need to complete an investigation before putting details out in the open?
The Times asked DHS for basic information about the deaths: What caused each child to die? What distinguishes a case that apparently involves child maltreatment from one that doesn't?
DHS said it can answer none of these questions. Past court rulings have drawn a line between information that can be considered part of an investigation and that which must be public record. Lawyers for DHS have denied that the case is precedent for its own child maltreatment investigations.
Though the results of investigations may be revealed if they are determined to be true, the law makes it illegal to disclose unsubstantiated accusations of child abuse.
DHS lawyers argue that any information released about an allegation under investigation may violate that provision.
Though it would be an uphill battle, said Rick Peltz, a professor at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock's Bowen School of Law who has written on the FOIA, the nondisclosure law might be challenged in court by arguing that information about child maltreatment cases analogous to that contained in a police report should be publicly available.
But Peltz doesn't think the law as currently written allows even basic information to come to light.After the crash - the emotional battle If you’re involved in a road crash, chances are the biggest challenge will not always be your physical recovery.
