Some judges, prosecutors and communities are finally expecting mothers to step up and protect their children. Some are even prepared to punish them not just when they abuse their children but also when they fail to protect their children from abuse at the hand of others.

Unfortunately, FORMER Judge Craig Key is NOT one of those judges.

Earlier in 2005 Kelsey Briggs was removed from the care of Raye Dawn Smith by DHS due to an allegation of child abuse. An investigation concluded that Smith the allegation was founded so Kelsey remaind in state custody and a service plan was developed for her mother. On June 12th 2005, despite KNOWING that Smith had NOT COMPLETED all the requirements of her service/reunification plan, Judge Craig Key returned Kelsey Briggs to her mother.

Four months later, on October 11, 2005 Kelsey Briggs was killed while in the care of her mother.

Former Judge Key has never accepted responsibility for his decision. There is already one book of explanations and excuses for his actions and another book of explanations is expected to be “released” shortly. Though Key is purported to be the author both (self published) book were actually “ghost” written by one of Smith’s supporters. This is not a book review, but I will say that the first book was a poorly written piece of fiction and though I doubt that the second book will be any more factual I hope that the author has at least honed her writing skills

The fact is Judge Key has plenty of time to devote to writing fiction. Despite his multitude of explanations for returning Kelsey Briggs to her mother, in November of 2006, Keys was defeated in his re election bid. Smith’s supporters continue to insult the intelligence of Oklahoma voters by claim that Judge Craig Key lost his re-election because of the “lies told by Kelsey Briggs's paternal family”.

It’s time they excepted the truth, the good people of Oklahoma let Key know their opinion of his ruling in the Kelsey Briggs case. Smith’s (ever dwindling number of) fans and groupies need to stop their desperate campaign of character assassination, finger pointing and lies. No, the Briggs family is NOT perfect, but the bottom line is now, always has been and always will be, that no member of the Briggs family was in that house with Kelsey on the day she was killed. The only two people who where there are Raye Dawn Smith and Mike Porter. Meaning that one of them is guilty of enabling and the other is actually guilty of beating a toddler to death. Neither has been willing to tell the truth and Smith STILL refuses to take a polygraph.

Both Smith and Porter where convicted of “enabling” abuse. For several years now Smith’s supporters have claimed that Smith did not know Porter was abusing Kelsey. They have convinced themselves that Smith is not only addle brained, completely clueless but also blind. However they have failed to convinced me.

I believe that Raye Dawn Smith, who is the one and only person who actually has a record of child abuse against Kelsey, is guilty of far more than “enabling” abuse.

Yes, Raye was the only one who had abuse confirmed against her. And I don't think anybody but Raye's supporters miss the former Judge.

I agree, but I really enjoy the snarky retorts where he pretends that I wasn't being sarcastic.

Like I have said before Oily is a legend in his own mind. People who are accomplished and talented are content in themselves and don't need to put on performances for total strangers.

It's pretty obvious that Oily is a work class schmo and also that he has not even had the benefit of knowing people that have enjoyed even moderate financial success that he could emulate for us during his on-line performances.

It all comes from his imagination though sadly he isn't very creative. He is not very well read or origional either. His on line persona is a combination of wealthy but discontented 1980's fictional characters. Turston Howell III, JR Ewing, Lex Luthor and a bit of Cruella De Vil. SOmeone should tell him that these are charactures and unflattering charactures at that.

Funny story:
A couple of months ago I gave Oily a great investment tip. Since he is financially illiterate and could not follow instructions he decided that I was telling him to buy futures. Had he made that investment he could have doubled his investment in a little less that 70 days. But of course he doesn't have any actual money to double... So he ridiculed me and continued to "invest" in fossil fuel and Toyota...

Oily, I read some where that Glen Beck, FOX's uglest talking head, says to BUY gold. My tip of the day: If you actualy have gold SELL it ASAP. Then take that money invest it in "the market". This way you will (at least) have enough canned goods to get you through the next year or so.

I want to add that I strongly disapprove of keeping dogs on chains.

I hate child abuser and people who chain up dogs. I don't believe that "illegal immigrants" are this countries #1 problem. Actually it's not even in my top ten. And sometimes I call out posers like Oily and liars like Spamin Sue.

I know, I know, I am such a b itch. I mean child some child abusers are probably "wonderful" people once you get to know them. Sorry I couldn't resist!

When you think about Oily, it's rather sad. Anyone who pretends as much as he does, really has no life.

Looks like Sue missed this one whith her "don't contact me, don't email me" spam?

I thinks Sicko Sue is TRYING to attract the attenetion of a certiian "simple country gal" and ghost writer by posting to IMPLY that she too is being "stalked". I don't know which is funnier, Sue thinking that anyone believes that everyone on topix is emailing her or Sue thinking that her "certian someone" will notice, what with being busy ghost writing, compalining about "haters" and feeding her ENORMOUS ego taking up so much of her time!

WOW! It looks like Spamin' Sue missed this one with her "don't contact me, don't email me" spam?

WHO would BOTHER to send email TO Sue? I doubt raye dawn smith answers Sue's (fan) mail and she is stuck in a cell for 24 more years!

Do you think that Missy Sue is TRYING to attract the attention of a certain "simple country gal" with these crazy claims to IMPLY that she too is being "stalked"? LOL!

Honestly, I don't know which is funnier...

Sue CLAIMING that everyone on topix is emailing her?

or

Sue thinking that her "certian someone" will notice her?

I mean how can she fit reading sue's spam into her day? Especially with being so busy ghost writing, compalining about "haters" on her web site and feeding her ENORMOUS ego taking up so much of her time...

FORMER Judge Craig Key had a previous relationship with the Smith family. He should have RECLUSED himself from the case! Instead, AGAINST THE ADVICE of DHS, Keys chose to return Kelsey Briggs to her mother Raye Dawn Smith.

If he had not the RIGHT THING Kelsey Briggs might still be alive and Key might have won his relection bid.

The Briggs ruined raye dawn, and Judge Key..
What kind of people attack the grieving family of a precious baby.?

what did the Briggs write in the obituary of Kelsey?


I know her father was away, but Grandma Briggs and Grandpa Briggs were there. I personally find it odd how the Briggs versionof the obit mentions, Kelsey loved to bite?????!!!! HUH? Who does that?

perhaps if the Briggs had been better people the Judge would have not removed the child from their home. and Kelsey would be protected.

Not only did he have a previous legal tie to the Smiths, he also defended Patty Jean Bonner (Kelsey's social worker.)when she was accused of abusing her own daughter,
