"When Judges Stain Our Kids"

Karen Adamski of Larksville thought she was doing her late son, Brandyn Robbins, a favor when she hauled him in front of Judge Mark A. Ciavarella Jr. She saw him going down the wrong path and thought a stern talking-to was just what he needed.

The next thing she knew, he was taken away.

Adamski told a television audience: "He was bounced back between Pennsylvania Child Care and Camp Adams." Clutching a photo of Brandyn, Adamski explained the effect the ordeal had on her family. Her son committed suicide last year at the age of 17.

Adamski shared her story on Thursday’s WVIA-TV broadcast of “State of Pennsylvania: When Judges Stain Our Kids.” The show delved into the current scandal involving former Luzerne County president judges Ciavarella and Michael T. Conahan. Both men are accused of taking kickbacks from the owner and developer of Pennsylvania Child Care in exchange for placing children in the private facility. They recently pleaded guilty in federal court.

We look to judges to be fair and honest. And when they aren't, the consequences are devestating.

I hope Ciavarella spends the rest of his life in prison. Seven years is only a good start.

Conahan had his hands involved in guardianship -- harming the other vulnerable members of our society.

They are a disgrace to the bench and humanity.

I propose the judges spend time in a public cage outside of their courthouse until their sentencing hearing.

this goes to show you that when we stand before any judge we have to wonder whose hands are in whose pockets what a disgrace and these 2 boobs belong in prison for the rest of their miserable lives and i hate to be so crude on such a nice site but i hope the crooked judges end up with big nasty lonely cellmates

I am so sorry for what happened. I have a blog www.stop13stepinaa.wrodpress.com and I would like to speak with you on the phone.
I am doing a documentary about the sexual and financial abuses going on in AA and its culture.

This story and what's happening to our youth will be a part of my story

The powerless crap touted by AA and the culty behavior is archaic.

ALthough I got sober at 18 and am still sober, now 53, I see the truth about 12 step mentally.

PLease contact me at makeaasafer@gmail.com

Again I am so sorry for your loss. We must fight back to expose these abuses.

JAIL IS TOO GOOD FOR THOSE TWO EVIL BASTARDS! THEY ROBBED CHILDHOOD VIRTUE INNOCENCE OF THESE BABIES. DEATH WILL STOP ALL CORRUPT INDIVIDUALS. NOBODY DOES ANY INVESTIGATIONS. ALL COURTS HAVE TO HIRE PEOPLE TO OVER SEE ALL CASES! THEN PEOPLE AND FAMILIES DO NOT TO SUFFER THE RIGORS OF CORRUPTION. GOD SEES ALL
