Working within Social Services is not easy for Social Workers are subject to their own management demands while endeavouring to do what is best for the vulnerable person. In doing so they need to obtain all relevant facts, which they need to understand and then decide the best course of action.

Within these their judgments may be clouded by their own personal views and opinions and this should be recognised by the respective managements within social services. Any decision made should be monitored to ensure that best interest was indeed followed. In this instance was any risk assessment produced and if it was, was it shared with Aimee’s aunt an uncle.

The secrecy which social services and especially the Family Court appear to insist upon needs to be looked at, for this could also not be in the best interest of those who are vulnerable.

All areas need to be more open, honest and transparent and then this could create an atmosphere where abuse is minimised.

Abuse is not only just related to care of the individual vulnerable person, but also the power of the authorities which they proceed to use over families. These authorities need to listen and understand situations more and then act accordingly and not proceed on a judgmental basis on unproven assumptions..

The father of a Navy SEAL killed during a mission that Donald Trump approved just a week into his administration blames the president for his son’s death.

William Owens told The Miami Herald that he refused to meet with Trump when the remains of son, William “Ryan” Owens, were returned to Dover Air Force Base.

“I’m sorry, I don’t want to see him,” Owens recalled explaining to the chaplain. “I told them I don’t want to meet the president.”

“I told them I didn’t want to make a scene about it, but my conscience wouldn’t let me talk to him.”

Owens questioned Trump’s motivation for signing off on a mission just six days into his presidency.

“Why at this time did there have to be this stupid mission when it wasn’t even barely a week into his administration? Why?” he asked. “For two years prior, there were no boots on the ground in Yemen — everything was missiles and drones — because there was not a target worth one American life. Now, all of a sudden we had to make this grand display?”

Although U.S. military officials told The New York Timesthat “everything went wrong” during the mission, the Trump administration has called the operation a success. Administration officials have claimed that an investigation would tarnish the memory Owen’s son, but the father disagrees.
