Grazzini-Rucki critical of proclamation designating April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month

Sandra Grazzini-Rucki, who was convicted last year on six felony counts related to the disappearance of her daughters, strongly criticized the proclamation designating April 2017 as National Child Abuse Prevention Month by President Donald Trump.

In violation of a court order, Samantha and Gianna Rucki were taken by their mother near their home on the night of April 19, 2013, during a custody and divorce dispute involving their parents – Grazzini-Rucki and David Rucki.

On November 18, 2015 – 944 days after they disappeared – the girls were found living on a ranch in northern Minnesota by law enforcement, headed by the Lakeville Police Department.

Grazzini-Rucki critical that Trump’s proclamation honored child protective workers, law enforcement officials

In his proclamation issued on March 31, 2017, Trump listed groups of professionals “whose tireless work every day protects children”:

“We also honor foster and adoptive parents, child protective workers, faith leaders, community mentors, teachers, and law enforcement officials, whose tireless work every day protects children who have been tragically abused or neglected. Their often thankless service in these difficult and painful situations helps restore the safety and dignity of these wounded children and, in many cases, dramatically improves the course of their precious lives. As a Nation, we pledge to honor our commitment to protecting the vulnerable among us, not just this month, but every day of the year.”

After reading Trump’s entire proclamation during her interview, Grazzini-Rucki said the groups recognized by Trump “have single-handedly destroyed our children, and the future of America”:

“I think it is our obligation to inform our president, who I believe can make some changes, that all these people that he is giving credit to don’t deserve the credit and in fact, expect for a very few individuals… they’ve done nothing but harm children more, and I’m including CPS, foster parents, government workers, police departments, lawyers and judges. They have single-handedly destroyed our children, and the future of America.”

April has been designated National Child Abuse Prevention Month by every president since 1983. 

Grazzini-Rucki previously announced her next targets: children, spouses, and family members

As previously documented, Grazzini-Rucki’s disdain for law enforcement and the court system has become more flagrant, her rhetoric more incendiary, and her behavior increasingly dangerous, since being released from jail last October.

Last month, Grazzini-Rucki announced that she and others will be targeting the family members of judges, attorneys, and county staff, including their children. The alarming comments from Grazzini-Rucki were made during her podcast which she hosted with a man convicted of threatening to shoot a judge.

In an enraged tirade, Grazzini-Rucki said on her podcast:

“When we start exposing that, then we’ve made it personal. We are not gonna sit back and let you destroy our families because now, what you’ve done to us and our children and our families, we are now going to transpose it onto you.

We are going to start exposing your children, your spouses, your families, your parents. We are coming at you with exposing what’s truly going on in your own home.”

Additional audio from Grazzini-Rucki was discovered from this interview in which she makes more comments about targeting children:

“So like you said, we have these DCF workers, these CPS workers, these judges, these attorneys, who think that they are completely immune to what can happen to them. Well, I will say it. It will soon be happening not to them, but maybe to their children and to their children’s children. And that’s when they will wake up and and go ‘oh crap’ we’ve got a problem.”
