Major updates in the case of Connecticut teen Justina Pelletier (nurse speaks out)

After months of false leads and dead ends, there have been some promising updates in the case of Connecticut teen Justina Pelletier. The Massachusetts Department of Children and Families took custody of Justina after her parents disputed the diagnosis doctors at Boston Children’s Hospital’s handed down. Boston Children’s Hospital said the then 15-year-old had a psychiatric disorder – not mitochondrial disease, which her parents had been treating her for at the direction of another doctor. Though a Boston juvenile court judge recently awarded permanent custody of Justina to the state DCF, it would appear, based on the letter by Massachusetts Health and Human Services Secretary John Polanowicz, that a plan is in the works to at least return Justina to her home state of Connecticut. “Justina Pelletier should return to her home state of Connecticut to receive the services and support she needs close to her friends, family, school and community,” Polanowicz writes. “We strongly believe that this outcome is in Justina’s best interests, and have laid the groundwork to make it happen.” Read the full letter HERE. Meanwhile, Human Events reported on Monday that a Boston psychiatric nurse who cares for Justina filed a mandated reporter complaint against Boston Children’s Hospital. In the written complaint to Department of Children & Families Commissioner Olga Roche, Kathleen T. Higgins, R.N. alleges state authorities have unlawfully imprisoned Justina for 14 months. On radio this morning, Glenn read through portions of the letter.

In a letter dated January 8, Higgins wrote that she has “been engaged with Linda, Lou and Jennifer Pelletier, the parents and eldest sister of Justina Pelletier, to facilitate Justina’s discharge from Bader 5, inpatient psychiatric unit of Boston Children’s Hospital, where she has been unjustly and illegally imprisoned for the past nine months” since April 23, 2013. Furthermore, Higgins explained that without a history of “serious mental illness” or behaviors to indicate she was at risk for harming herself or others, holding Justina against her will is abusive behavior. Read the full report via Human Events HERE.

Finally, on Wednesday, TheBlaze reported Olga Roche, the embattled commissioner of the Massachusetts DCF whom Higgins wrote her complaint to, had resigned from her post. Governor Deval Patrick said it was impossible for her to continue in her current role. Roche was facing mounting pressure following the death of three children. The Associated Press reports: Olga Roche’s resignation comes after calls from top Democratic lawmakers — including Massachusetts House Speaker Robert DeLeo and Senate President Therese Murray — for Roche to be replaced as commissioner of the Department of Children and Families. […] “I have accepted her resignation because I believe it is not possible for the agency to move forward in this environment with her at the helm,” said John Polanowicz, secretary of the state’s Executive Office of Health and Human Services, which oversees the DCF. The agency named Erin Deveney as its interim commissioner. She has been working there for about 30 days following a stint at the Department of Motor Vehicles. “Olga Roche presided over the horrific mistreatment of Justina Pelletier and the tragic deaths of children in DCF custody,” the Pelletier’s spokesman Rev. Patrick Mahoney said. “We hope Erin Deveney will correct the systemic injustice of the previous administration by taking immediate steps to free Justina into the loving arms of her family and accepting the reunification proposal.” While there is still a lot of work to be done before Justina is returned not just to the state of Connecticut but to her family, these developments offer a glimmer of hope to an otherwise inexplicable case.

Massachusetts permits human experimentation on
wards (slaves) of the Commonwealth.

With Deval Patrick, this is Dookhan-quality “medicine”
of a type Mengele, himself, would be proud of.

Yeah, Goobernur Devil Patrick replace the head of the Department of Children and Families with a person from the Registry of Motor Vehicles. That is almost an equation in Massghanistan DCF = RMV.

Look for no changes at all in either the DCF or the RMV.

Here in Connecticut I have not heard of Gov Malloy doing anything at all for this poor girl. I’ve e-mailed him about this case and have not even gotten a reply.

The nurse wrote a letter which Beck read in the video. There were a couple of hyperlinks in the article.

It has been my experience that emails are readily disregarded. OTOH, a typed letter in perfect English delivered by the Postal Service usually gets attention since the recipients figure that the author is a thoughtful person who has taken the time to write a reasoned letter with some thought in it, as opposed to a dashed-out email. Try it.

Most states have some for of open documents law, and usualy the crats are responsible - therefore letters and FAX communication gets more attention.

Can we say “notification” and “proper procedures”, MS DMV Person?

Concur. The state of Mass is killing that child. The people involved should be held accountable. That is criminal charges.

Agree. However, you are still trying to communicate with a bureaucrat. I have found the biggest response comes from phone calls directly to the highest person you can reach at a big-city newspaper, followed by a letter to the editor. Reporters/editors are proud of their state and don't like bad publicity.

Just a little FYI for those outside the Gay State.This case has made its way all the way up to Governor Deval "Coupe Deval" Patrick.Coupe Deval,who'll be leaving office next January,has made it known he's running for President in '16.Knowing that empty suit punk as well as I do that means that this case will get his *personal*,back room,attention with the goal of hushing it up...lest it become his Willie Horton moment.

If I'm correct in my belief that doesn't bode well...AT ALL...for this young girl.

Teddy "A Blonde In Every Pond" Kennedy was reelected here about 5 times after killing a young girl that he was schtumping.And you think that criminal charges will be forthcoming?

And yet you're even slightly surprised by this situation? OK,then...I'll modify my post..."you don't read the papers much,do ya?"

My basic point,of course,being that nobody who knows this state should ever underestimate the depths of depravity to which the ruling class here has sunk.

I think criminal charges should be forthcoming. Didn’t say they would be. I can understand how you might reach your conclusion from what I posted.
