    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    UNION COUNTY, NC -- The fallout continues in the Wanda Sue Larson investigation. WCCB has learned that Larson's boss at the Union County Department of Social Services has been demoted.

    http://www.wccbcharlotte.com/news/local/Wanda-Sue-Larsons-Boss-Demoted-Amid-Continuing-Investigation-264345051.html

    Union County has finalized its plan for the state on improving its Division of Social Services after a child abuse scandal involving a former child protective services supervisor, officials confirmed Tuesday.

    SNIP

    In March, the state detailed problems in the DSS operations in Union and Gaston and told the counties to come up with a plan to deal with the issues.


    Union’s issues included problems with documenting how child abuse cases are initially handled and a lack of reasonable effort to get all information needed in certain cases.

    UNION COUNTY, NC (WBTV) -

    Union County DSS has been under the microscope every since one of its supervisors was arrested for having a boy handcuffed to her porch with a dead chicken tied around his neck.

    That was 8 months ago and when it happened the state came in to review the entire system.

    Nearly two dozen people from Union County DSS have retired, resigned or were fired since the arrest of Wanda Sue Larson and her partner Dorian Harper last year. Another person was demoted.

    Looking hard for an update for this one. I googled Wanda Sue Larson and trial and keep getting search results that indicate her trial is set to begin Monday March 16, 2015 but can find no MSM article to verify it.

    NC - Dorian Harper & Wanda Larson for abuse of foster child, Monroe, 2013

    When I read the headline my first thought was "the kid killed the chicken" and sure enough that is what happened.

    I have heard ignorant people talk about tying a dead chicken around a dog's neck to teach the dog to stop killing chickens, I think it is a really stupid idea. Apparently this guy heard about that method too, and tried it on a kid (at least the kid would presumably understand the point).

    MONROE, N.C. — A North Carolina man pleaded guilty Wednesday to handcuffing an 11-year-old boy by his ankle to a porch with a dead chicken around his neck as punishment.

    Authorities said they think Harper tied the dead chicken around the boy’s neck as punishment for killing one of the chickens on the 5-acre farm where they lived.

    This gives more detail from when it first happened. I live in Union County, and this caused a hell storm. Everyone kept saying if you can't trust a nurse and a DSS supervisor, who can you trust?

    MONROE, N.C.— A North Carolina man pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six to 10 years in prison Wednesday for handcuffing an 11-year-old boy by his ankle to a porch with a dead chicken around his neck as punishment. Dorian Harper entered the guilty plea to three felonies — child abuse, assault with a deadly weapon and maiming without malice. His plea came a day after a jury was seated.

    no word on Larson and her trial or what is up with her prosecution.

    Sounds like the conditions were pretty bad, I guess they weren't undergoing any sort of inspections?

    I have to think the people that end up like this never envisioned it in the beginning. They take in troubled kids thinking "they can handle it and turn the kids lives around" and they can't. The boundaries and common sense break down completely due to the frustration factor.

    One has to wonder if money plays a large role in it too, though in this case the woman was working as an ER nurse so she likely made good money.

    My dogs have killed a chicken and I can't blame them because they are dogs, but if a kid did something like that....oh lordy...they would have to be removed asap for their own safety.

    Finally! I could not even understand how this ended up in a jury trial in the first place!

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.
