Another child was abused in Worcester, and it’s about time we take drastic steps to stop this epidemic of violence against little kids.
Fox Boston: A Worcester woman has been charged after police say her son showed up to school with serious injuries. Police say the 5-year-old was hospitalized after school officials discovered he had a limp and noticeable bruises. His mother is now under investigation for allegedly failing to report that her son was being physically abused. Police arrested Chantal Nguyen Tuesday after they said staff members at Wawecus Road Elementary School noticed her son’s injuries.
Investigators said an ambulance took the boy to UMass Memorial on Lake Avenue, where they discovered “significant trauma to the entire body, including his head, face, arms, legs and lower back.” According to court documents, the bruises “were in different stages of healing,” and that witnesses told police the boy was in severe pain and had so much trouble walking that “he had to be carried up and down the stairs.”
“He used to walk up and down the stairs fine,” Nguyen’s neighbor Phylicia Johnston told FOX25. “That’s why it came a shock to me that it happened, to be honest.”
Nguyen was arraigned Wednesday morning on charges including reckless endangerment and permitting the abuse of a child. After she posted bail, a relative at her apartment told FOX25 that they “had no comment until further investigation.” According to documents filed in the case, Nguyen blamed the abuse on her male roommate, who lives in the apartment along with his girlfriend and their child.
Nguyen told investigators she had noticed the bruises on her son before but failed to report them because the roommate was “a care provider” for her, according to the documents.In a statement, a DCF spokeswoman told FOX25, “The Department is investigating the incident with local law enforcement and as DCF officials look into the matter, custody of all the children in the home has been transferred to DCF.” Police have not arrested Nguyen’s roommate or officially identified him as a suspect.
I really wish we didn’t have to write about shit like this all the time, but if people would stop abusing children, that would be great. It is absolutely disgusting that there seem to be a never ending supply of assholes who don’t mind beating the shit out of little kids. They are the lowest of the low. But perhaps the only thing worse than them are mothers who don’t protect their children from them. I just don’t understand how anyone who calls themselves a mother can go out of their way to protect the monster who beat their kid this badly.
Chantal Nguyen deserves to spend a long, long time in jail. She should obviously lose custody of her child permanently so he can have the chance to be brought up in a home with parents who give a shit about his well being. We can’t stop women like this from reproducing:
But we certainly have the right to take their children away from them if they are intentionally putting them in danger. And we should have the right to tie her tubes so she doesn’t unfairly bring any more human life into this world to be abused and violated.
What disgusts me even more was this, which we got from her Facebook page right before she took it down:
This human garbage was allowed to work in healthcare and graduated from a school where the President of the United States was the graduation speaker. It’s insane to think that someone who was paid to preserve life was actively endangering the only life in the world that should’ve mattered to her.
DCF is on the clock now. We’ve seen time and time again with Ava Conway, Jack Loiselle, and Bell Bond, that the system right now isn’t working. Charlie Baker has a chance to show that he’s actually going to fix this epidemic of violence against children. It’s time to take these kids away from the horrors they have to live in and put them in a loving environment that they deserve.
Here’s another thing – everything our society is doing right now is contributing to this. We give these people free everything and all it does encourage them to reproduce. We’ve been teaching sex ed in school for how long now? And kids are still fucking like rabbits and getting knocked up like hot cakes. All of these policies have failed miserably and the problems persist.
The only positive I can take out of this story is that it’s yet another example of the fine work that teachers in the Worcester Public Schools do. The teachers at Wawecus Road School should be honored like a cop or a firefighter would if they saved someone’s life. Because there’s a good chance they did just that by blowing the whistle on this one.
Anyone who says teachers are paid too much is a moron. Because we don’t just pay them to teach our kids how to read and write anymore. We pay them to be the caretakers for children who don’t have any support system at home. Because unfortunately tons of kids from Worcester and all over the state don’t have people looking out for them at home. So teachers have to be extra vigilant and the fact that these teachers noticed something was wrong and did something about it is a testament to the fine work that teachers do each and every day.
