A Medina County man accused of sexually assaulting five former foster children, including several in Bexar County, took in more than 180 young girls over a five year period, officials said. That leads investigators to believe there could be numerous other victims who have yet to come forward. "It's not a question about whether there are more," said Medina County Sheriff Randy Brown. "It's just about how many."... Over the course of the five years, more than 180 girls passed through his care, Brown said. At various times, Briseno was reportedly taking care of up to 12 girls at once. Brown said Child Protective Services contracted with a third-party company

So pervert-loving social workers approved these placements? Only in perv cali, I guess.
Pretty sure this happened in Texas.
The article mentions that the authorities “can’t comment” and aren’t sure how this happened and all that.
They probably have huge volume, and are happy to unload these kids wherever they can.
The company was probably Depelchin. They handle all Texas adoptions and maybe all 50 states.
Orphanages were shut down because of discipline issues. They need to be brought back.
There are so many abused kids the states don’t know what to do with them. And many of the kids become abusers.
Even the most casual glance at this guys mug shot should raise the back hairs of anyone who ever comes in contact with him.
Why didn’t anyone see this years earlier? He must have been good enough for government work.
Bet he’s a registered Dem, and possibly an illegal to boot.
When I was a child abuse case worker, we were loaded down with files. Far too many to keep up with and the state kept piling on more and more forms to be filled out. Then they’d insist you go to this workshop and that workshop when you didn’t have time. I blew up at two different workshops - one because they had the nerve to ask the purpose of Form # whatever and I told them where they could put the redundant form and it was 4 pm and I still had a 3 hour drive ahead. I’d have 30 cases, across three counties, was on call 24/7 including weekends and was all by myself. That was before cell phones and the beeper wouldn’t work in my counties. Frankly, I could have been killed in the middle of the night and dumped on some dirt road and no one would have known anything about it for days. No one can handle those hours or the bs. This summer, the legislature restricted the number of files per caseworker. Why it took legislative action is beyond me.
The foster care system wasn’t nearly as bad but the quality of the workers was pitiful. I was also given a few foster kids to check on. The foster workers never could get the kids’ papers right or get the foster parents paid and medical was a nightmare. Why did I have foster kids? Who knows since that wasn’t my dept. But since they’d come from my counties, I would have to travel to Austin and to Abilene to see them on top of traveling my three assigned counties. Those were all day trips. Travel time eats into your day and the supervisor (officed in a fourth county - yeah, more travel for me) didn’t understand or care because his other caseworkers only traveled in town.
Big surprise, I quit.
It’s the same with state juvenile delinquents. It’s hard to get the kids in an appropriate facility that meets their needs. Say you have 20 kids to place that week and only 10 slots across the entire state - 1 group home slot, 6 state school slots and 3 wilderness camp slots. What are you supposed to do with the kid who needs a drug abuse facility and hasn’t been for six months? And people wonder why the little punks turn 18 and upon release screw up again.
Yeah, it’s all the lazy caseworker’s fault, right?
Since you seem knowlegable, could some of these kids be part of the un accompanied minors program. I worried that these kids were moved into the country without oversight or transparency and this would be a system fro abuse.
Do a little research and you’ll find there are thousands of “throw-a-way kids” in every state and most of them were sexually abused by parents or grandparents or both. And there’s no cure and no place to put them. So they’re warehoused wherever they kind find a place to put them.
Them you have those who were physically but not sexually abused who are placed in foster homes with older kids who abuse them. It’s a serious problem of which there doesn’t seem to be a solution.
What used to happen to children as you describe - orphanges run by religious organizations, especially nuns. Many some locally run as in municipal or county, if any city or county governments aren’t rotten to the core, I’m sure some aren’t.
Of course orphanages had checkered histories but infiintely better than the foster parent system which is incredibly abusive, although there are obviously some excellent foster parents.
Another factor which will help is anyone sexually abusing a child convicted “even” once, should be executed, and quickly.
If criminals are not deservedly punished, crime increases. It’s that simple. Since pedophiles are so rarely punished, and if they are, it’s never execution, this in itself is another crime.
Thank you for your presonal experience and perspective. Adds another aspect to this whole horrible mess.
And priests. No lie, the Mexican bruja put a curse on the one here. Thankfully, she liked me.
Sadly, unlike Weinstein, I can believe they had no idea. Children in the foster program have no one to advocate for them, and learn they are on their own very early.... these are kids who often have little to nothing in the first place.... they are some of the most vulnerable.... It is not hard at all to believe that they were being abused and never spoke out, and that no one who was supposed to be looking out for them, bothered to ask more than the checklist questions and find out.....
Had a friend who prosecuted child molesters. At the she was lobbying the legislature to get the laws more severe. She couldn’t do it. Made me wonder how many lawmakers we’re concerned about getting caught.
I’ve always said two convictions and you’re executed. There could always be a false accusation. Then again, if you want to make an omelette..
