(THUNDER BAY, ON) – In the early morning hours of December 2nd, 2019, a youth that is in Dilico custody started lashing out in their bedroom. They removed the drawers from their dresser and started smashing them around their bedroom. The situation escalated as they destroyed the window.

The youth then grabbed handfuls of broken glass and stuffed them into their pants. At this point the youth fled to the bathroom and barricaded themselves in there once staffed attempted to sort out the situation. With the child refusing to come out and workers fearful for her safety, a 911 call was made and officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service (TBPS) responded to the home to help sort out the situation. Officers arrested and detained the 14-year-old female and when they checked her for injuries, found her hands had been cut from clenching the broken glass.

This morning in Justice of the Peace Bruce Leaman’s courtroom, the child appeared by video from the TBPS station on Balmoral Street. Crown Attorney Derrick “The HAMMER” Silvestro was also present along with a duty counsel lawyer.

Police charged the youth with a single count of mischief causing damage under $5000 stemming from the destruction of the dresser drawers and window in the Dilico group home. Dilico has a social worker present in order to obtain bail for the girl.

The Crown Attorney consents to the youths release today on the lowest form of release which is an undertaking. He only proposes two conditions to release the youth to, which are:

  • Reside at an address approved by Dilico.
  • Obey the rules of the residence you live in.

Court hears the child is going through some form of treatment to help with issues they are having and will be in treatment until they are a legal adult, and allowed to leave on their own. Court grills Silvestro on why he doesn’t ask for the youth to reside at a certain address. Silvestro HAMMERS back by telling the court that having the “reside condition” crafted the way he has allows Dilico to relocate the child without seeking a “bail variation”. He further says that the child can live wherever Dilico approves her to live, which satisfies the Crown’s concerns.

The child is ordered released from custody and has a future court date scheduled to begin answering to the charges.

  1. One of the many psychologically disturbed young FN youths living with the damages from piss poor parenting.

    These kids don’t have a chance to succeed in mainstream society. They’re damaged goods compliments of drunk/drugged parents neglecting and abusing them. Unfortunately, these very children will likely comprise the majority of next generation alcoholics, druggers, criminals and prisoners.

    Pity all of the children being mistreated by lifelong alcoholics and addicts.

    1. You’re damaged in the heart for even speaking this nonsense. Pathetic soul for the living. It’s not only poor parenting. It’s the four fathers who hurt her before you put your two cents in.

    2. Angel Queen:

      The fruit does not fall far from the tree. Unfortunately, having “four fathers”, it might be difficult to determine which tree.

  2. These youth deal with trauma from being removed from home, trauma from witnessing the things that were probably going on in their home with parents.

    They probably were removed because of a very dangerous situation that occurred in the home.

    These Children probably witnessed ongoing violence, drug & alcohol abuse, maybe even poverty in their family too!

    More then likely, I’m guessing these children have to deal with all a variety of issues. Can you imagine being 14 having to deal with all of these issues?
    When I was 14 I was out camping, playing board games, fishing, spending time with my family, cooking, baking and enjoying my time at home.

    These parents probably also refuse to step up and take responsibility & place blame on society!

    Youth is probably left feeling anger towards parent, and the system and probably leaves them feeling powerless.

    The child probably feels abandonment issues, neglect and probably struggles with mental health issues.

    Sad, sad situation. The child has an opportunity to be empowered, strengthened by their story and to know she is not alone! She and other youth in our city need to know that there are people out here who care for their wellbeing!

  3. DILICO IS A JOKE ORGANIZATION MANY KIDS R MISSTREATED BY DILICO – AFTER MY KIDS SAW POLICE KICK ME UNCONSIOUS – BREAK MY RIBS – PUNCTURED LUNG OVER A FALSE ALLAGAITION BY A DELICO WORKER – DILICO DID NOTHING 2 COMFORT MY TRAMATIZED KIDS – PLUS DIDN T EVEN HELP MY KID THAT WAS PEPPER SPRAYED .

BUT THEY DO SOMETIME GET IT RIGHT – THANK GOD – THANKS – SOME OF THESE DILICO WORKERS LET THE POWER THEY HAVE GO 2 THERE HEADS AND ABUSE IT CONSTENTLY WITH NO CONCERN 4 THE KIDS INVOLVED . IF ANYONE IN JUNKIE BAY MAKES A FALSE ALLEGATION WITH NO EVIDENCE THERES A GOOD CHANCE U COULD B TERRORIZED BY DILICO WITH POLICE HAVEING 2 OBEAY DILICOS DEMANDS.

    1. Police would not just kick someone unconscious, is this a false allegation?

      Your children must’ve been traumatized for the crisis YOU put them in!! Why would police even be at your door, what were YOU doing that made someone call the police on you?

      Police should look into your comment and investigate your allegations and and if it’s a false allegation should have you charged!!

      Start taking responsibility for YOUR children!! Quit trying to blame the world and shaadap already!! Lol

      The Police would not just show up on your door for no reason! It’s obvious there was some dangerous activity YOU had put YOUR children and others in that they needed to be called!

      Yours Truly

  4. Angel Queen Nothing you say could be further from the truth. None of our fore fathers or anyone related to them today are to blame for this. You and many others have been brainwashed by the Aboriginal Industry that everyone else is responsible for what is happening with Natives today. If you pull out your history book, take the time to read the Treaties that BOTH sides mutually signed you will see that the natives in Canada were bargained with , negotiated with, treated fairly (unlike the natives in the USA) and provisions were made specifically that the natives agreed to. But it is much more lucrative to maintain a perpetual pity party and shift the blame on to the taxpayers here. There will be no end to this shit because that would mean the end of the cash for life. There is not one single fucking politician who has the integrity or courage to stand up to those never ending accusations and demands. Simply because no politicians will risk their retirement package on this scorching issue. So do some homework and get your facts straight before you accuse other people of causing the problems natives have today.

    1. Any bets?

      Using the 10-90-100 formula, I’d say I’m safe. 10% of the population commits 90% of the crime 100% of the time. We know what demographic represents the 10%.

      Time to start accepting responsibility for their actions wouldn’t you say?

    1. The difference is that there’s a large FN component working within Dilico. Fortunately, there are a number of FN people who know how bad the situation is with many FN youth and are willing to work toward helping mistreated and abused children.

  5. I DROPED MY GRANDSON OFF AT SCHOOL A DELICO WORKER SAW ME AND SAID I LOOKED LIKE I WAS ON DRUGS CAUSE OF HOW I LITE MY SMOKE AND WALK. AFTER WE WERE TERRORIZED MY KID DEMANDED THEY DO A DRUG TEST WHICH THEY DIDN T – I M WHITE AND CARE IS MY REAL NAME – STILL IN COURT 4 THESE FALSE ALLEGATIONS – NO FEAR # –

  6. Dilico is a disgusting organization. They hide behind being Native and not being accountable cuz the fact is they make money off every kid in care and the assholes they have working there end up getting promoted no matter how bad they mess up. CAS sucks but they are better than Dilico cuz they are at least accountable to regulations. They take kids from their families and don’t bother keeping them in touch with their roots or following the law. I feel so bad for this kid.

  7. Dilco at that home, they hire anyone that needs a home themselves, no need diploma. Native, your hired, I know my son went through the same drama. Neglect at Fox Court, and he was there on his own accord. I had to finally realize, NOT even our own will or know how to handle such delicate souls.

  8. So, would the children be better off being mistreated and abused by drunken/drugged up parents vs. being taken care of at Dilico? How do you think they ended up at Dilico in the first place?

    I suspect that a great deal of the psychological and emotional turmoil/damage is partially the result of FAS and/or drug abuse related fetal damage.

    Unfortunately, the preponderance of the these problem children will likely never have a chance for a normal life due to severe brain/nerve damage resulting from FAS/parental drug abuse.

    These symptoms are not reversible. The best that can be expected is for a few of these kids to exhibit reasonable behaviour by way of proper medication. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these FAS kids will not have much of a future if not permanently supervised and medicated. Sadly, most of them will end up just like their parents.

  9. I C THAT THE ONES IN POWER FEAR 2 ADMIT WHAT THEY R DOING DON T WORK AND REFUSE 2 CHANGE 2 SOMETHING THAT MIGHT WORK – 2 MANY SOCIAL WORKERS TRYING 2 SAVE THEIR JOBS OVER FAKE STATISTICS – LETS GET REAL FREE NEDDLES DON T WORK 2 GET PEOPLE OFF THIS TERRORIST POISON- THE COLD TURKEY WAY IS THE MOST PROMISEING WAY 2 HELP ONE WHO WANTS – NEEDS HELP – FROM ADDICTION – IF I WAS GETTING FREE NEDDLES IN 90S I WOULD NT HAVE STOPPED MOST LIKELY – FACIST LIBERAL POLICIES ARE NOT WORKING OPEN YOUR EYE S – HOSPITALS NEED OUR TAX $$$$ NOT JUNKIES – WTF WWY?
