After their involvement, I had to protect my child from them because they felt he should be hospitalized. My son has a mother and father who are very involved in his and our other children's lives. We knew full heartedly that our child wasn’t capable of such crimes because in our culture the saying is; he would have to go through his father or I before he does anyone else any harm.
Due to our personal beliefs and rights, PCSA and I are battling. I personally spoke to my case worker discussing with her that children will say anything to get out of trouble. Her reply was: “I don’t think a child his age will make something like this up.” My response was: “No one knows what an African 'American' child would say or do at this age because no one took the time to study him within his own cultural setting. Everything is based on white America.”
