The Mayor and CPS Were Right to Take Mayoral Challenger Dorothy Brown’s Advice on Having the CPS Inspector General Take Over Sexual Abuse Cases – Other Immediate Actions Needed Now
On June 12th, the Mayor and CPS finally stop playing politics with the lives of our children and followed Mayoral Challenger Dorothy Brown’s advice and turned the sexual abuse cases over to the CPS Inspector General. However, Dorothy Brown says there are other immediate actions needed RIGHT NOW.
Brown says other actions are needed to save the girls and boys that are more likely than not, involved in sexual abusive situations RIGHT NOW, and could feel threaten by their perpetrators or even think they are in love and just do not know that they are being abused.
Brown says the following actions need to be taken RIGHT NOW:
- A formal letter needs to be prepared and given to students 12 years old and up, explaining to them what sexual abuse by an adult is; with several hotline numbers, and the secure email addresses for reporting to the CPS Inspector General;
- Each principle should hold an assembly and have a counselor to explain to children 12 years old and up, what sexual abuse by an adult is; and provide the hotline numbers and the secure email addresses for the CPS Inspector General;
- A letter needs to be prepared and mailed to all parents explaining to them the CPS Plan to clean up the problem and to make our children safe;
- The Inspector General needs to begin the process of hiring investigators trained to interview children; and
- CPS needs to start the process of making sure there is a counselor in every school for the next school year.
Again, I say the Mayor and CPS were right to take Mayoral Challenger Dorothy Brown’s advice to turn the sexual abuse cases over to the CPS Inspector General immediately.
