  • "The only things this report that the biological parents said was that there were allegations made by that were false and the reporter stated that there were false ones made. They also claimed that they were to have contact in the form of pictures, letters and calls. So I am confused on what instances they are being untruthful on. Can you clarify since you know the parties involved for us? Your right that the whole story has not been provided. Hopefully more will become clear in the next part of this story."

  • "These children have been victimized at every turn. Removed from their family based on the word of Dee Torres. Untrue allegations repeated by SLO County Social Services even though they had been disproven. Placed in a home, only to suffer years of abuse from the very people who were supposed to protect them. These kids are due for a break, and the adults who are responsible for the years of mistreatment they have endured should be held accountable."

  • "I know the parties involved, this isn't quite the open shut case everyone is making it out to be. The biological parents are not telling the truth in some instances, and for all intents and purposes be careful who you condemn without knowing the full story. My heart goes out to all the victims in this case and hope that justice is served."

  • "From the information provided above, we know for sure that: Fact: Torres-Hill observed Mrs. Carroll striking the girl. Fact: Torres-Hill is required by law to report any potential situation where a child's well-being is in danger...whether she is right OR wrong. That's for the investigators to sort out. From this point on it's in the hands of law enforcement, SLO county and eventually the court. Fact: It was the court's decision to place them in the Bergner home, not Adam Hill's or his wife. Fact: It was Robert Bergner who committed these horrible, criminal acts. Not Adam Hill or his wife. Will you continue to let the facts get in the way of your truth?"

  • "It is time for downtown drinking and entertainment business to be specifically taxed for the cost of public safety. They're living it up like rich South State Street bar owners in S.B. making money hand over drink. Not that long a go frequently only 4 SLO cops would be on duty at night. Kinda the minimum for initial response and back up in an emergency before other agencies arrived. But 12 cops chaperoning the drunken junior-high party in a few blocks of downtown should not be on the residents tab. As to this project; the game is weaseling in a bar in the City's BS PR "no more bars downtown" charade. And they did it. How much is this politicking worth? $5 million might be on the low side."

  • "Sadly at this point in time, there is no grounds for the adoptive mother to go to jail. It states that she didn't believe or want to believe that this was happening. But then again- if it didn't happen.. they wouldn't have had a reason to take the 3 younger kids out of the home which included her daughter. Not just the adopted kids. There are gaps in this story that I am sure will be brought to light."

  • "What they finally resorted to at the Coast Union High athletic field, when all else failed, is an OWL BOX. This has a very good track record 9pun intended). A family of barn owls can eat 3,000 (yes I said 3,000) gophers in a year. That would most likely cover the whole neighborhood. We have removed most of the owl's natural habitat and the lack of rain, that would have drowned at least some of the gophers, has left us with a real plague of the little buggers. What seems not to work as well is just about everything else (poisons, gas, traps and oh yes, EXPLOSIONS), which would include the Wiley Coyote approach, more appropriate full name "ACME" Rodinator."

  • "I find it interesting that Dee Torres-Hill has said in past articles that she has never called CPS (now CWS) on anyone yet more and more people are coming forward saying she has in fact been the one who made the calls. I don't think to many people know who Lee Collins is and that is the reason he is never mentioned. That and the fact that he may not have been directly involved in the cases coming forward at this time."

  • "This is just one side of this story obviously, but I don't think these people are innocent homeless people that just lost their kids. There has to be more to it. Parents don't lose all parental rights and their kids go up for adoption very easily. I feel so sorry for this poor girl that she went from bad to worse but to me the birth parents are claiming foul now in order to hit the lawsuit jackpot. The problem is that ultimately that money comes from us the taxpayers. So sad for the kids. Hope they can get the help they need to get past this nightmare."

  • "This is an awful story, sounds like the system failed everyone. I hope your facts are accurate here, I would hate for these kids to be hurt any more than they already have. Did you even consider the repercussions on these kids when you decided to post this picture? I think it was very unwise to put the picture up of these kids without their consent."

  • "Dee Torrres made the referral to CPS. The "government" as one writer posted is responsible for investigating. Who is the "government?" The head of the department then and now is Lee Collins. Also involved is the juvenile court. The public cannot observe these hearings. In this county this is a circular self-serving system including the public defender who is supposed to represent the children but is paid by the system (often their only source of income). CASA, the organization that presents itself as the children's advocate does little other then buy the children nice "things." The members are comprised mostly, of well positioned people in the community who don't want to rock the boat. (My opinion) Lee Collins apparently is not concerned with losing his job. No poster even mentioned his name. He was around before Adam Hill and Dee Torres were on the scene"

  • "What I have to say it I was 100% on spot as i reported AJ Santana to DA Dow long ago, as well as ove4 5 other corrupt members of the NTF, as KSBY was at my home today to see the facts I turned in AJ long ago. As usual i am vindicated as reporting the corruption in the Task Forces that is what i have to say............................I over two + years ago turned in over 5 members of the TF including AJ Santana and others so I was correct as usual."
