As a concerned citizen in the state of Rhode Island I have truly been appalled at how the so called reporters at the patch have been reporting on the tragedy that has be fallen the daycare in Newport. I would really like the patch to answer a few questions? 1. If you really are a so called reputable journalist are you then not compelled to report the actual facts and not lies and malicious slander? 2. Did you even check and find out that Teal Claudia was never in the home daycare? That her child was actually in state care and that the state dis-enrolled the child to try and reunite the family? Did you investigate that Teal Claudia has a know drug problem herself? 3. Please explain HOW you got a juvenile police report from the Newport police? Juvenile records ARE protected? 4. PLEASE explain how a reporter for the patch and a FRIEND of the teacher EMILY does not report that she took a video of the alleged act even though she KNEW there were cameras in the day care? 5. Please explain WHY you are not persecuting her for filming the alleged act? 6. Why would you report a neighbor hasn't seen the children outside at the home daycare? Did you report that the neighbor works? Isn't sitting outside every hour or minute of the day? 7. DID you DO ANY investigation into the school issue? I know from sources that the Newport Daily News will be receiving documentation that supports every claim Mr. Johnson stated about his dealings with the school! 8. How come when the Newport YMCA had charges brought against their WHITE gymnastics teacher for molestation you DIDN'T persecute them? Why were they NOT all the patch?
This was a tragedy for everyone involved in this incident and I find it horribly sad that a SO CALLED news entity would try to boost their members by reporting false information! I also find it deeply disturbing that a news entity that is trying to sell itself as a "HELPER for the COMMUNITY" reports lies and causes more harm by its lies and sloppy reporting!!!
