Why do so many children brought up in care end up in jail?

Data on outcomes for youths in care needed for benchmarking and policy

Data produced by the Oberstown Children Detention Campus shows that in 2018 more than a third of the population detained had previously been in care or had significant contact with Tusla.

The voice of a former foster child

The death of a child by arrogance and ignorance........

There are no statistic that will ever help you understand what it feels like to be a child abused by the child protection system. No one really watches out for these children they are all lost within a world ruled by narcissist, pedophiles and do-gooders. 

A child removed from a home of poverty aka neglect is thrown into a broken system where true abuse becomes a life they can not escape.  Even when the child is allowed visits from parents and family who can witness the physical marks of abuse it is still ignored by arrogant workers who believe the parents are incompetent and their reports are retaliation.

So sad when a mear accusation can cause child removal but isn't enough to protect a child from abuse within the system.

What about us? What about the children in care?

What about the children that were ripped and torn away from their family? Why are we getting pushed into the darkness? Why? Why? Why?

Are there any ANSWERS? NO! there are no answers for us kids and I will not stand down anymore.

I have been in care for 11 years now and I have had the worst bringing up then I would have had living with my parents ….. I have been pushed around, pushed to the back, put down and I have my rights thrown out the window I’m here to tell everyone that this needs to stop it needs justice!!!!

A child removed from a home of poverty [aka neglect], is thrown into a broken system where true abuse becomes a life they can not escape.  Even when the child is allowed visits from parents and family who can witness the physical marks of abuse - it is still ignored by arrogant workers who believe the parents are incompetent and their reports are retaliation.
