Storyboard Text

  • A 4-year-old boy named Joshua DeShaney was physically abused by his father again and again. He was taken by the Winnebago County Social Services, but was later returned. Joshua was then abused so severely that he was taken to the hospital permanently disabled and paralyzed. His mother was upset.
  • Hospital ->
  •  Don't worry Josh, I'll sue those people for returning you back to your abusive father!
  • The mother goes to court, and tries to convince the Justices (Supreme Court Members) to side with her. 
  • The County Social Services should be punished because they have not taken serious actions for protecting my son.
  • Okay Mrs. DeShaney, the members of the court will now decide.
  • I hope they agreed with me. 
  • Please do not agree with her....
  • What!! Why??
  • Phew.. that was close.
  • Okay, the court has decided.  The Winnebago County Social Services will not get punished. 
  • Oh, okay...
  • It is not in fault of the government, because we cannot protect children from their parents.
