CAS as Punishment
May 3, 2014 permalink
The police were informed that Patricia's children were seen playing outside their home in the presence of an older adult male. In past generations, children playing outside was considered to be a normal healthy activity. Now the police treat it as abuse. As for adult men, police cannot imagine anything but a child molester. Later the video suggests he might have been a mis-identified teenaged brother.
In the last seconds of the video the police decided Patricia was not being sufficiently cooperative. No words say this, but from the tone of the policeman, the message is unmistakable. She is being reported to children's aid as a form of punishment, in much the same way a cop might hand out a frivolous ticket to an uncooperative motorist or rough up an unruly teenager.
Patricia later posted the CAS report on the incident.

Of Concern: Patricia Turner Focus of Concern: Aaron Fairfield Jr. Date of Incident: 2014-May-03 Eligibility Spectrum Rating: 2.1.8
On May 3/14 at 4:30 p.m. Cst. Greg Johnston- Badge 4757-Barrie City Police - 705-660-9215- spoke with AH/Stacey Beckles re: concerns for Elissa Fairfield (1) and AJ Fairfield (3) (Police Occurrence # BA 14 01 99 56).
Cst. Johnston advised that around 2:13 p.m. a couple driving by called their dispatch to report that they had found to children outside in the rain unattended. The couple advised that they observed a small toddler (Elissa) outside unattended and that the child was drenched from being out in the rain and was covered in mud. The couple also reported that there was a little boy (AJ) riding his bike in the middle of the road (with one slipper and one boot on). He too was also wet from the rain and muddy. The couple assisted AJ to the sidewalk with his bike. At that time they reported a teenager (Reggie) came out of the house and grabbed both children and went back inside.
Cst. Johnston advised that when police attended the home initially Reggie opened the door and got his mother. Advised that Patricia barricaded the front door refusing to let the police in. Patricia would not provide her last name and was very uncooperative with providing the police information about the children. After speaking with Patricia and her continuing to refuse the police entry to the home to check on the children's well being, Cst. Johnston advised that police pushed their way into the home.
Cst. Johnston advised that Elissa's pajamas were damp from the rain and the child was really dirty (child's feet were muddy and soiled). Advised that it was evident that she was not outside for just a short period of time. The officer advised that AJ was also observed to be wet, but was not as unkempt as his sister.
The officer advised that the home was dirty, but he has seen worst. After police saw that the children were safe and not in distress they decided to leave the home as Patricia was very agitated. Advised that Patricia audio recorded police and she advised them that she was going to sue them. They advised her that they would be making a report to the Society which Patricia was very unhappy about.
The officer was advised that his report would be noted and a supervisor would be consulted.
Record checks reveal that this family has a current open file in the Ongoing stage.
In consultation with BSD Anne-Julie Lippe a subsequent investigation will be opened with a coding of 218 due to the lack of supervision. A 7 day response time will be assigned.

Some false statements in the report:
At 2:25 the policeman says the report was that an older male grabbed them in an aggressive manner.
At 0:29 in the video she can be heard saying "Turner".
At 3:59 she gives the age of the teenaged boy. Starting at 6:35 she gives the names and dates of birth to the two youngest children.
The few moments the camera shows the clothing of the children there is no sign of drooping from wetness.
Note that in contemporary police work, every "older male" is a child abuser, until shown otherwise.
The report correctly states that over Patricia's objection police pushed their way into the home.
Addendum: On September 22 Patricia got completely free.
