Jaycee Dugard Suing US Government

Jaycee Dugard is saying the United States failed to properly supervise the convicted rapist that kidnapped her and held her captive for 18 years.

Phillip Garrido was on parole when he abducted the then 11 year old (1991). His parole agents were supposed to be keeping a close eye on him and his home from 1991-1999, yet they never noticed Jaycee's presence that entire time.

For those of you who need a recap, Jaycee was held captive, raped, and bore two children by Phillip (one at age 14 and the other at age 17). She wasn't freed until 2009.

Though parole agents were supposed to be supervising Garrido at his home in Antioch, Calif., from 1991 to 1999, they never detected Dugard's presence there during that time, the complaint states. Dugard, 31, who gave birth to two of Garrido's children during the years she was held captive, was not freed until 2009.

Following her freedom, Jaycee sued the state of California and won $20 million. And now she's suing the U.S..

The lawsuit calls the lack of supervision "outrageous and inexcusable."

Jaycee promises to donate 100% of any money won to the nonprofit JAYC Foundation, Inc. which supports abduction victims.

Jaycee, we are behind you. You definitely deserve a judge to hear what you have to say!

    This is why you need to stick to celebrity bullshit and keep away from politics and hard news. There are to many facts that you omit when you post this type of hard news. You are so fucking stupid and need to stop pretending you are reporting the news. Grown men report the news not pink haired douche bag faires with a twisted fucking agenda.

    There isn't a police force on the entire planet that can 100% guarantee your safety, in every circumstance.

    Bad stuff happens to good people.

    Good for her — glad she's going forward with this.



  4. 4

    What happened to her was horrible but I don't think it's worth a federal case.



  5. 5

    …………right.



  6. 6

    what happened to the 2 kids?

    Re: penny1206 – hahaha so agree

    I feel for this woman, I really do. My opinion will probably get me bitched at, but so be it. I do not agree with her decision to sue the federal government. The ones responsible for that asshole not being properly monitored and being paroled won't be the feds who failed to do their job. It'll be the taxpayers and an economically crippled nation. All the money will be going to a good cause, but it won't give her back all of those years lost. I also understand that she's trying to send a message that her ordeal would not have happened if someone did their job and this lawsuit is to wake people up, but people not even remotely responsible will be the ones who suffer in the payout.

    good 4 her

    Celebrity gossip please. When I want hard news I check a news site. That said I believe this girl and her family should be financially taken care of for the rest of her life. But the government is not able to protect everyone and mistakes are going to be made.

    Re: HarleyDex – I agree.

    They actually have video of an officer in the home looking for any evidence of children etc. Bue they are following him all over just distracting and creeping him out so he does not complete the work. They had specific reports saying kids were on his property and she could have been saved years earlier. It's very disturbing and sad.

    i'm glad she is! I'm tired of these fucking criminals getting away with this shit. it's true you can babysit people 24 hours a day, but that's why they have fucking PRISONS!!!!! why wasn't he in prison?? I think she deserves it.



  14. 14

    Good for her. I hope she gets Millions and Millions. They were at the that house of horrors how many times?



  15. 15

    YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH! WOOT! If you see one government employee you see them all, lazy…. lazy… with some more lazy. Just nothing behind the curtain, and I'm personally over it, but not NEARLY as over it as I'm sure Jaycee is…FUCK THEM! I hope this case goes somewhere.



  16. 16

    I'm sorry, but I still can't believe that she couldn't have tried to run away or get help on her own within all that time. I don't want my tax money going to a frivolous lawsuit like this.

    Re: penny1206 – you are a douchebag yourself my friend. gtfo of here if you dont like it. he never claimed to be a news reported, hes a fuckin blogger, he does what he wants. he isnt forcing you to be here. i dont care about all the fuckin facts, its still ncie for me to know an overview cause i dont want to spend half a fuckin hour reading about this tragedy. thank you perez, keep doin your shit.

    Re: Not my gumdrop buttons! – you are ignorant. you obviously know nothing baout the human brain and psychology in general. its much more complex than just that. you know nothing, so please dont be ignorant. i think she deserves a lot of money. they screwed up big time. i hope she does win since she is donating it alll t oehr foundation.

    Re: Not my gumdrop buttons! – really, frivilous….she didn't slip on a marshmellow at k-mart, she was kidnapped, raped, tortured, kept in sub-human conditions by someone who should have been in jail. If you were locked up for that long let's see if you come out with half the class and dignity of that young lady. When i was 10 i nearly died of fright if i lost my mum in a supermarket isle, let alone what she went through. We are all jaded because of the idiots that sue over a paper cut, but if anyone deserves to sue it is a real victim who suffered worse sh*t than any of us can fully comprehend. The innocent tax payer might lose a few dollars (i'd rather that than lose my innoncence, family, life, freedom) but it will be a stiff kick up the ass for the authorities…..stop protecting perverts….the feds need authority to search anyone and everyone that has been convicted of crimes against kids….i hope her mom and step dad sue too….he was considered a suspect, she lost her baby for too long….it's not the authorities fault jld was kidnapped (although he should have been in jail) but they were in his freakin house many times.

    And as for not escaping…..she was a kid….she was terrified….expecting her to just run is so naive. Run to what? in the dark? when you are tied up? when you are 10….she has been more mature and dignified than anyone i've ever seen, i hope she can set up herself, her family and especially her kids for life.

    Re: mama maria – wow didn't realise all funds were going to her foundation, not even in her own pocket. She is trying to protect other kids by this suit, not herself, so not only will it give the authorities a kick up the nether regions, the money will go towards innocent kids. After all she has been through and she is trying to protect others..she must have an inherintly good heart, because from age 10 she didn't have a mother to teach her or to learn from, just a rapist child stealer, and still she turned out better than most.

    If you read her book, you know she deserves it!

    Re: penny1206 – This is a blog. This is not CNN. He is not supposed to give you hard facts. He gives you the overall story and his opinion. You are silly.



  23. 23

    This just goes to show that police cant do shit, and that the government are useless. Why our world evolves around them is beyond me.



  24. 24

    Re: HarleyDex – nah she did the right thing. its about time someone stood up to the goverment, they cant currupt her out of this, she has solid everdance.
    shame on they way people lives there lifes fearing the goverment!! and shame on people who think the goverment are good people

    God ble$$ this angel. After the incredible ordeal $he ha$ been through, $he i$ able to go through her journey and come out the other $ide $eeing what$ really important in life. MONEY, MONEY, MONEY, MONEY, MONEY, MONEY,MONEY. Ju$t a different kind of whore after all



  26. 26

    She is going to sue the federal government because they are always short staffed to keep track of every criminal. She is going to take away money which might mean not being able to hire a new police officer that year. That police officer could be the one who saves another little girls life. Her logic is backwards and kind of makes me sick.



  27. 27

    she HAS to do this!
    .
    NOTHING can ever give back to her the innocence that she lost
    NO amount of money will lessen the torture that she endured
    NOTHING will recapture her missed school days and holidays with friends and family
    NOTHING will EVER wipe the memoires away
    NOTHING will ever change the fact for her and her beautiful children that they were born from the worst of circumstances and deprived of their supportinve loving family
    .
    just going outside the safety of her own home has to be so stressfull
    the whole system has to be changed- NOW- so that the parole officers and police do their jobs more diligently and more frequently
    that will entail hiring more people probably-and higher taxes to pay for them-but the alternative is unthinkable and unforgiveable!
    .
    .
    THIS CAN NEVER HAPPEN AGAIN!!!
