    "UPDATE #7 AN ABUSED MAN’S BATTLES, TRYING TO PROTECT HIS BOYS. June 18, 2009 By Walter burchett, BA Author" By Walter Burchett, BA June 18, 2009 A few days ago mom brings me a newspaper and it has Shawn’s graduation picture in it. Shawn is illiterate, he can’t even write his own name. He can barely spell his first name. He can’t read at all. I wrote a letter to the superintendent of the Umatilla School District and she responds in a letter that Shawn received a Modifield Graduation Diploma because the IEP Board decided he would never be able to function or think like a normal person his own physical age. Even though the whole school knows that Judge Pahl is going to pull both Shawn and Brandon at the hearing because the judge, himself, found out they are both suffering from what is called Environmental Mental Retardation. That means neither Shawn or Brandon are actually Mentally Retarded, but they have learned to act Mentally Retarded because that is what they have been... More > told for the last sixteen years and that is the students they have both been around ever since they started school. It took Lori’s Death Certificate, my ex-wife, to find out she never died from Cancer which is what most people thought she died from. Instead, she died from an overdose of Fentynal. The facts in the case point to her husband intentionally giving her the overdose. He has a new woman in his life and the life insurance policy he had n Lori paid off the bills, not to mention remodeling the home and brand new cars. He is the same one who was in on kidnapping both Shawn and Brandon right out of Foster Care when they were in Walla Walla County and took them over two state lines clear down to California. The case worker had to drive down to California and pick up both boys and return them to Walla Walla before my next visit. James is also the one, along with Lori who lied in Judge Wallace Court Room in Hermiston when Lori had put the Restraining Order and Stalking Complain against my 79 year old mom. Mom helps in the schools here to teach kids how to read and write in the kindergarten and first grade levels. Mom’s attorney caught James, Lori, and a friend of theirs lying under oath in court. James and Lori have lied about Shawn and Brandon’s symptoms, this is why the presiding judge in the ongoing case, Judge Pahl is going to pull both Shawn and Brandon and place themin the Stay to get them both off the drugs that are illegal in the first place and do a Total Re-Evaluation on both of them. What all this boild down to is the IEP Board made a judgment call before the Re-Evaluation started. They are indicating in their Professional Opinions that Shawn will never be able to think, learn, and function asa a normal adult in the areas of education or home and life events, such as marriage, working a normal job, etc..In short, the IEP Board doesn’t expect anything more out of Shawn that what they have already seen. This doesn’t say too much for the school district or the Sate Requirements for Graduating Students. The parent doesn’t even have to give their concent to allow the student, their own son or daughter to graduate from high school. I wasn’t even notified of Shawn’s Graduation before he graduated, I had to find out through the newspaper of my own son’s graduation that a friend of mom’s gave her, after the graduation was over and I was less then 15 miles away from the school district for the last eight months waiting for the hearing to take place. That means there is a pending hearing that also needed to be considered before any decision by anyone were made on behalf of Shawn or Brandon.< Less
