Security Camera Captures Foster Kids' Alleged Abuse


POSTED: 9:49 a.m. EST February 18, 2004


MILWAUKEE -- A vigilant neighbor may have saved some foster children additional pain.



Milwaukee police arrested a 39-year-old woman after a neighbor's security cameras intercepted images from her video camera showing her allegedly abusing foster children.


William Brookins called police after he watched the images on a monitor from his home security cameras Sunday night.



Brookins said he realized he was intercepting another camera's images, which showed two young girls holding their hands over their heads.


He said after 25 minutes, the 2-year-old's arms began to sag. A woman rushed into the picture and hit the toddler in the abdomen and the face, knocking her to the floor.


Three foster children and three of her own children lived in the home. The younger children went to other foster homes. Child welfare workers took custody of the woman's children.
