    IL - Artistic Fletcher, 1, Kankakee, 1 March 2013

    http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?sec...cal&id=9013080

    There is dispute over the origin of 1 year-old Artistic's injuries, father says they were inflicted by day care provider. According to father's Facebook (considered rumor since he has taken it down?) he has had his kids removed by Dcfs in the past, and he has a long list of supporters who are convinced Dcfs is just out to get him. They are encouraging him to run.

    I'd love to see this in the missing discussion thread just to be on the safe side.

    Reserving judgement on daycare provider, AVW, but her Facebook is totally open and she has many videos of the daycare children posted to her page. I for one as a parent don't think I'd be okay with that.

    I am getting hink on this one and not about the parents. I have a feeling DHS is barking up the wrong tree and needs to be looking at the daycare.

    It just does not track that these folks would be the ones to post the pics of little Artistic's bruises on FB and contact police and DHS about it if they themselves were responsible.

    I have a feeling some are jumping to conclusions because of the parents' ink. I hope these folks turn themselves in. This is only making the situation worse. Prayers for everyone's safety.

    anybody got anything on the daycare. I am finding some reviews:

    but they are all written post accusations regarding Artistic.

    I totally agree with this. I just spent some time looking over Mom's Facebook. They seem like very loving parents, if a picture is truly worth a thousand words. I don't see them running if they are abusers. Seems like they are petrified their kids will be taken for no reason - we all know that happens.

    shared in illinois on facebook...i hope they find the kids and figure it out from there! If a daycare center did that to my child I would not be on the run---i'd be screaming in the streets. Plus CPS in our state has too much crap on their hands, they really don't bother with b.s. calls on child abuse---it is usually substantiated.

    i think it sounds like the parents were trying to cover their own abusive tracks by bringing him to the hospital, then when it was about to be documented by the government and an actual report made---they left. Of course dcfs is going to come in to an abuse case, no matter the abuser----wth did they think would happen?! I honestly think IMO that they put the pic up in trying to discourage their own abuse.

    StacieMarie this has been my thinking all along, and only because of a statement dad made on his Facebook to the effect of Dcfs not going to take his kids *again*. There goes my bell right there. Does that mean he hurt this baby? No.

    But I get a bit uncomfortable with his falsely-accused bandwagon.

    We need more information. I hope they are all safe and using their heads.

    Can we link the provider's Facebook? I don't think she has been named specifically but her Facebook lists her as the owner of daycare so we know for sure it's her.

    Not a whole lot there, but many video glimpses into the daycare itself.

    if these folks truly haven't harmed the baby and want to see the person responsible dealt with, running is not the answer. Again. I have no hink from the parents (regardless of whether they have had an experience with DCF) but running does not help their cause.

    As far we know they may have taken the kids previously briefly over unfounded allegations or removed them while investigating some horrible charge only to return them after finding no evidence.

    Still fence sitting on this one. I hope these folks really think hard about turning themselves in and letting LE figure all this out.

    As long as they are on the lam they keep the focus on them and not the daycare they have accused.

    These people called DCF themselves to report the daycare, but if they have had prior contact with the department, the focus may have turned, erroneously onto them, or felt like it did. They need to realize that if they have done nothing wrong taking off like this makes it LOOK as if they did.

    I hope that all are safe. I do not know who is responsible for hurting that little baby but someone surely did. The picture is heartbreaking. The kids need to be protected until the authorities figure out who is responsible.

    I just really, really hope that all the kids are safe and this case has a happy ending.

    I can think of a reason-if you have already had your kids removed in the past by Dcfs and were supposed to be on the straight and narrow and you got angry and made a horrible mistake. Best way to cover it up? Spin. Blow a storm in someone else's direction.

    I'm not saying it happened this way, just that I can see it happening this way.

    They have a lot of support, I hope their friends are giving them good, sound advise.
