These are funny cartoons that include references to actual cases in Riverside County, CA.
This is a precedent. Hope to see more!
I finally completed Part 6 of our story including getting arrested for a possession of stolen property that was not stolen and more falsified hair follicle tests.
Part 7 should be much more exciting as I will explain what happened in Arizona and show how we “stole” our son back from CPS who never has legal custody of our children because they never had any SIGNED COURT ORDERS!
If I dedicated my life to Christ and converted to an acceptable religion, would anyone’s views and opinions of me change? Would I then be “accepted”? I doubt it. You know why? Because I don’t need to do those things to be a good or better person. I am a good decent person who made some poor decisions because I MADE THOSE DECISIONS WITH MY HEART. I am trying to change that but it is hard. To become cold and heartless is not in my nature. To look out for only myself is very difficult. But if I promise to try, will I be given a reprieve? Can I pass go and collect the love from people who now despise me based on lies they were told about me? 951-295-6854 If anyone has anything to say to me please call, ask me anything you want. I am an open book. Oops, that is not a good way to “cover my butt” is it? I am thinking with my heart again.

THE FIRST THING TO UNDERSTAND IS THIS: Child Protective Services DOES NOT REALLY CARE ABOUT THE CHILDREN! Now you know why they do the mean things they do.
THE SECOND THING TO UNDERSTAND IS: CPS only cares about FUNDING. This is what drives them to do ANYTHING.
My top ten list of advice and information:
1. STAY CALM AND COLLECTED. When you yell, argue, and/or make threats of any kind, they have the ammunition to accuse you of being violent and/or claim that the children would not be safe in a “volatile environment”. Always be polite and courteous to everyone who has anything to do with your case. Yelling and arguing only incites them to make up more crap about you and an excuse to refuse to return your children. When I say be polite and courteous, I mean play it up big by saying things like, “Thank you so much for your help and concern with the welfare of my family. I really appreciate everything that the Department is doing for us. We strive to become better parents, regardless of how. We are learning a lot and are dedicated to completing our case plan.” YOU DO NOT HAVE TO MEAN IT! I know how you really feel about them. This is normal. Heck, if I said all the things I thought about social workers, well, I would have a lot of problems to deal with. That is all I will say. My mom always used to say, “Kill them with kindness.” Best advice she ever gave me yet, in this situation, I understand how difficult it is to do. However, it is well worth the efforts as this has a great deal to do with if and when they return your child(ren). This is not a guarantee but it is very important that your social worker LIKES YOU.
2. Stop fighting them. UNDERSTAND THAT YOU CAN NOT BEAT THEM IN COURT – EVER! What I mean by that is this: The case will not be dismissed for lack of evidence. It will NOT be dismissed once you prove your innocence. It just will not happen so let’s move on. [ALTHOUGH IT IS POSSIBLE IF A BRAVE LAWYER OR GROUP OF LAWYERS HAS ENOUGH YOU-KNOW-WHAT TO PRESENT A DEFENSE THAT EXPOSES THE ABUNDANT CODES, STATUTES AND REGULATORY ACTS WHICH ARE VIOLATED IN EVERY CASE. If every parent hired a private attorney or if there was a program through the BAR Association where pro bono services were provided to defendants in Juvenile Dependency cases, the court cohorts would not be able to collaborate and collect our kids for cash!] However, there is a lawyer named Vincent Davis who has been educating and preparing parents and guardians for court.
When I say stop fighting them, I do not mean that you shouldn’t get objections on the record. This is extremely important for appeal. So, file a Declaration or Objections to the Detention or similar document that clearly objects to the false allegations, the fabricated evidence and the perjury the social worker has made and submitted to the court in the form of written testimony (the Detention Report and or any other report the county has filed).There are things you can prove with providing your “attorney” proof of in the form of documents and testimony. This may alleviate requirements of some of their case plan programs but it will not get your case dismissed.
Once you get your children back and the case CLOSED, you can and should sue them. But check your local and state rules regarding claims against a government agency. You may have to file an administrative complaint FIRST. A Federal 42 U.S.C. Section 1983 complaint for violating your 14th Amendment rights and your child’s 4th Amendment rights is a good way to go however, it is not the only way.
3. .Complete the case plan without complaining or arguing. If you don’t feel you should have to go to any Domestic Violence classes, you need to tell your lawyer to negotiate that requirement if there has been no domestic violence. YOU CAN BARGAIN WITH CPS but you must get it approved by a CPS supervisor and/or the Court.
4. GET EVERY PROMISE IN WRITING. Whether it is to place your children with family, increase your visits, close your case early, or to relieve you from drug testing, write up a promise agreement and have them sign it.
5. RECORD AND DIARY EVERYTHING. Al;ways make sure to get names, dates and times or every communication with CPS and your lawyer. This will be particularly beneficial when you sue them as well as be able to politely disagree with social workers when they tell you something different that they told you previously.
6. NEVER MISS A VISIT WITH YOUR CHILDREN. EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO START WALKING THE NIGHT BEFORE, GET THERE SOMEHOW. IF YOU MISS A VISIT THEY COULD TAKE YOUR VISITS AWAY BY SAYING THAT YOU HAVE NO INTEREST IN VISITING.
7. If you do need to complain, do it in writing and send copies to those in higher positions. DO NOT BE AFRAID TO WRITE TO THE DEPARTMENT’S DIRECTOR! This will ALWAYS GET THEIR ATTENTION and most times your complaint is duly acknowledged and something is corrected.
8. IF THE ALLEGATIONS WERE EVEN SLIGHTLY TRUE, STOP THE BEHAVIOR PERMANENTLY. If they said you were doing drugs, STOP USING DRUGS! If they said there was domestic violence and it is true, EITHER FIGURE OUT A WAY TO GET ALONG OR SEPARATE. When you can’t prove you were not on drugs or that there was no domestic violence, the quickest way to get the children returned is to separate immediately and make sure that CPS has NO KNOWLEDGE OR SUSPICIONS THAT YOU BOTH ARE COMMUNICATING. That means do not talk on the phone, do not email, do not meet them in public places during the day. Make sure when you do talk or see one another that you are not followed. Take extra precautions to ensure that whatever actions you have taken to convince CPS that the children are or will be “safe” stays that way according to them. WHAT THEY DO NOT KNOW WILL NOT HURT YOU. Also, do not tell anyone anything different than what you tell CPS.
9. Always file an appeal regardless of what your “attorney” says. You never know what the appellate court will be able to argue. However, you MUST GET OBJECTIONS ON THE RECORD!
10. ,MAKE FRIENDS WITH THE FOSTER MOTHER/FATHER. This can prove to be your most valuable ally.

10 Things You Should do if CPS or DCFS is Investigating You
1: Take any accusations seriously.
No matter how absurd or unbelievable the CPS/DCFS social worker’s claim(s) may seem, please understand that the social worker is dead serious, and most likely presumes – no… most likely BELIEVES that you are guilty as accused. Even if the social worker doesn’t admit that s/he is at your home to take your children, often times that IS EXACTLY why they are there. It is our experience, over 20+ years, that the majority of CPS social workers develop a cynical view of life and assume that you are UTTERLY GUILTY until YOU PROVE that you are not: the opposite of the way the “justice system” is supposed to operate.
2: Ask what the accusations and charges are.
Most typically, the CPS/DCFS social worker wants to keep you from knowing exactly what you have been accused of — sort of keeping themselves on a “general fishing expedition” — but it is required by state and federal law to tell you the exact details of the accusations at first contact with you. Be wary! Do not settle for the vague and general charges called “neglect” or “abuse.” Neglect and abuse are broad categories – not the legally-required “details” of the accusations or charges! You are entitled to know the “details & specifics” of what you are accused of committing.
3: Say as little as possible. In fact – BE QUIET!
In criminal law it is ALWAYS strongly suggested that you talk to NO ONE but your attorney. Think about it. Virtually ALL CHARGES that CPS or DCFS levels against you are CRIMINAL CHARGES. And while CPS or DCFS is there ONLY to take your kids, the police can and often will show up later for the parents! In fact, open your mouth and tell the CPS investigator just enough to “make their case” and you can start packing an overnight case as the police will be called by CPS who will be at your door to take you away.
Sure, it is totally natural that innocent parents who have nothing to hide will want to explain everything to a CPS social worker because such parents would assume that ANY reasonable person would see that there is nothing wrong going on. But CPS and DCFS social workers are commonly ANYTHING BUT reasonable. They become entrenched in a culture that is uniformly cynical about ALL PARENTS. Frankly, you are presumed guilty by the majority of CPS and DCFS agents. The exhausted, over-worked social worker who just fought the crowded freeways to make it to your home is there on a mission. That mission is most often to find evidence to support what the social worker already believes to be true – that you abused your child just as the neighbor, relative or anonymous tipster claimed.
If you don’t talk to them –just as you are always told to never voluntarily talk with the police if they are accusing you of a crime– you take their power away. They will not be able to use your own admissions, statements, and your very words against you. For example” “Have you ever spanked your toddler?” Do you really think there is a good answer to that question? The majority of CPS and DCFS social workers abhor most any form of parental punishment.
4: The minute you become aware that your family is being investigated, YOU MUST find an attorney who has experience in fighting CPS or DCFS.
An attorney EXPERIENCED in CPS and DCFS cases and courts is mandatory! Juvenile Dependency courts are worlds unto themselves. Your most seasoned and experienced lawyers when first stepping foot into a Juvenile Dependency courtroom are totally dumb struct as if they stepped into It’s a Small World at Disneyland. Most lawyers –even experienced Family Law attorneys– who are not experienced with CPS/DCFS mistakenly think that it is their job (as it would be in any other court setting) to find out what CPS or DCFS wants and then communicate all the details to their clients. Shockingly, doing exactly that often leads to total disaster and the loss of your children.
5: Be courteous and polite to CPS social workers & investigators.
Let’s face it, when a “government investigator” –without any advanced notice– knocks insistently on your door, well-dressed, looking all official with a county badge; exuding the authority of the government; is well-prepared, PRIMED and READY to level accusations of child abuse or neglect against you: most people would be SHOCKED! If you’re human you’d also be scared too. As government is getting bigger and bigger every year they are getting more and more powerful and intrusive in the lives of ordinary citizens. We are all a bit nervous and threatened by the power of the state as we witness weekly examples of government power wielded unfairly on Investigative TV News programs and in the lives of our own families and friends.
What could your reaction possibly be to a surprise home-visit from a government agent? No one appreciates surprise visits by any one! Perhaps the dishes are unwashed; maybe you haven’t cleaned house for a day or two; say that there are a collection of beer bottles on the coffee table from the football game the day before; could be that you’re not dressed in appropriate attire as you would be IF EXPECTING guests… So when you are surprised and ACCUSED TO YOUR FACE of child neglect or child abuse it might be natural that you are shocked, defensive, upset, angry and a little hostile. As Homer Simpson would say: “Do’ah!”
Guess what? An angry demeanor toward the CPS social worker or DCFS investigator is considered evidence of your guilt. Your perfectly natural, upset and angry reaction to being accused of harming your child will very OFTEN BE USED as evidence of your violent and abusive personality.
6: Never invite any CPS or DCFS social worker or investigator into your home unless he or she has a warrant or court order.
If a County CPS/DCFS social worker requests that you invite them into your home politely refuse. If he or she insists or suggests that not allowing entry will work against you or will ensure that your children are taken away from you HOLD YOUR GROUND. Politely ask to see their warrant or court order to come into your home. It the CPS social worker or investigator claims to have a warrant, insist on seeing it: in fact they owe you a copy! Why? Would a Social worker lie? YES. Police and government agents often suggest they have a warrant or outright lie and claim to have a warrant when they do not. It makes their task of finding needed evidence against you so much easier! If the CPS/DCFS government agent cannot produce a warrant, firmly but politely tell them that they will have to remain outside until a warrant is presented. They will be annoyed. But you will be far better off – legally. If the agent says it is an EMERGENCY call their bluff. Insist that they explain how it is an emergency and what constitutes an emergency. Typically, in so-called “emergency situations,” the police and the CPS social workers come together and even then it is not necessarily an emergency but a working relationship that some CPS agents have with associates on the police force.
Do not even open the door to allow the CPS agent look into your home to see your children: they can see something that creates an “emergency situation” even if it is not true.
Be FIRM. You should not waiver nor give in to thinking: “What’s the harm?” There is no compromise here: no exception. If you invite a County CPS investigator or a Los Angeles DCFS social worker into your home, you have just waived your Federally-protected fourth amendment constitutional protection. Just like a police detective intent on hauling you to the police station for questioning would love for you to willingly invite them into your home, a CPS social worker who is openly or secretly intent on taking your children from you WILL FIND SOMETHING IN YOUR HOME TO JUSTIFY THE REMOVAL OF YOUR KIDS.
This happens every day all over America and even more often in Southern California where CPS and DCFS agents are the most ruthless social workers anywhere. The bar for removal is “whatever it needs to be” as far as the social worker is concerned. A legal prescription in your bathroom cabinet, a beer bottle on the coffee table, a kitchen knife not in the drawer, a broken window, a back door without a deadbolt, a missing smoke detector, a swimming pool without its own secondary safety fence: whatever might be necessary to fill out the paperwork to justify removal. If this particular social worker set out to take your child, allowing them innocently into your house will ensure that your child is taken from you. You now have a year or a lifetime of HELL before you.
7: Demand that CPS tape any interrogation of your child.
Subjective reports of what a child said or did not say is hardly ever adequate. Ask that any interrogation be recorded. You could produce your own recorder (as a back-up) just in case the CPS or DCFS investigator “loses” their tape between the interrogation and a subsequent court hearing where you might have “wished” that you had such a tape.
8: If you are accused of physical abuse, immediately have your doctor give your child a thorough physical exam.
Ask your doctor to write a letter stating that there are no bruises or injuries observed, nor any other health-related issues that would raise any concern or suspicion of child abuse or neglect. Obviously go to a doctor whom you trust. If a CPS or DCFS social worker suggests a doctor for you, or suggests that they know where you can see a doctor at NO CHARGE (as attractive as that may be), NEVER visit with a doctor recommended by CPS. What you may not know is that these doctors are a regular part of the CPS system and they are commonly called as expert-testimony witnesses by CPS as a witness against the parents. They are paid handsomely for their testimony.
9: Create a list of relatives and friends who are willing and able to care for your children if CPS takes them.
If your children are removed from your home, or the court is demanding that your children must soon leave your home for some period of time it is always better that your children are taken in by relatives or friends. Are you aware that children placed in foster care are sometimes abused or mistreated by people working the foster care system for a “pay check?” There is the flip side to that where some truly loving foster parents sometimes become smitten with your kids and start their own campaign with the court and petition for adoption! Having your kids in foster care is simply adding one more level of stress and complexity to your plate.
10: Never admit guilt, even if pressured by a CPS social worker to do so in exchange for leniency or getting your kids back.
If you are innocent of neglect or abuse why would you buckle to the pressure of a CPS agent’s demands to have you admit to false accusations? If you are accused or charged with neglect because someone has informed the county CPS system that you are addicted to drugs or alcohol, the social worker who is investigating those accusations may have good-reason to be concerned for your kids’ safety.
Even if you privately agree that maybe you drink too often or too much that does not mean that you have to incriminate yourself in this investigation. Bite your tongue. Admit NOTHING! Even if you recognize that you have a problem that needs to be addressed this is not your DOCTOR; this is not your PRIEST; this is not your LAWYER. Wrong person! Wrong time! This person is not here to HEP YOU. This person is here to collect evidence to support the accusations made against you and to TAKE YOUR KIDS. Period.
Do not admit guilt. Instead, work with your doctor, pastor or even your private CPS defense attorney to find the professional help you might need need (and professional help that the courts will recognize – no sense paying twice because a treatment program is not court-approved). By NOT ADMITTING GUILT, you can then honestly work on any issues you have and work with the court to keep your kids under your roof or to get your kids returned to you when appropriate.
By mistakenly thinking that admitting guilt to a social worker is justified is often a fast trip to jail – removing many of the options that you need right now to get your life in order. In any potentially-criminal situation NEVER voluntarily do anything until you contact an attorney: preferably a compassionate and understanding attorney who works with parents, kids and the Juvenile Dependency Courts on a daily basis. They will offer you frank advice that will be better than unnecessarily sitting locked behind bars. CPS social workers and investigators are not above lying to you to encourage you to confess or admit to something that you might not even be guilty of – just to get you arrested and your kids in their control.

The Most Important Thing You Must Know At the Beginning of Your Juvenile Dependency Case
I’ve been noticing a shift in the willingness of social workers, and sometimes judges to place foster children with family. It seems that all the political lobbying foster parents are doing in Sacramento and amongst the County social workers is paying off.
It is imperative that you know the following: YOU MUST FIGHT TO PLACE YOUR CHILDREN WITH FRIENDLY RELATIVES at the very beginning of the case; otherwise you risk losing them to adoption to the foster parent. This is rarely fought about during these juvenile dependency cases. And it should be something that should be raised by your attorney at each and every hearing; and if it is not completed (i.e., the child actually placed with a relative), your attorney should have a trial on this, and perhaps other issues, at the Disposition Hearing. Please read, read and re-read California Welfare and Institutions Code section 309. And if necessary have your attorney have a trial on these issues at the Dispositional Hearing.
Here are some actual recent case studies.
The first case from Riverside County. The relatives who wanted the child lived in Oklahoma. They were cousins of the mother. They contacted the social worker at the very beginning of the case, 3 days after the first hearing, the hearing commonly known as the arraignment detention hearing. Short after that hearing, the child was placed with a local foster care family. Turns out, the foster parents were a young couple, who couldn’t have children and wanted to adopt this child. And under a concept in the law called Concurrent Planning, the county social worker supported the foster parents desire to adopt.
The social worker informed them of two important things; both of which were false. First, the social worker said that they could not have the child placed in their home in Oklahoma, at the beginning of the case, because the court would order Family Reunification Services for the parents. And that could not happen until the court terminated Reunification Services 6 to 12 months into the case. This is false, because the child can be placed with the relatives, despite the parents being given Family Reunification Services.
Second, the social worker informed the relatives that the child could not be placed in their home without an Interstate Compact Placement of Children (“ICPC”) approval from Oklahoma. An ICPC is a report prepared by the receiving state social worker approving the Oklahoma relatives. All of this is true. But, the social worker told the relatives that this could not even be requested or initiated until at or after the disposition hearing; which in this case, was months down the road. This was false. ICPC can be initiated at any time. And remember, the foster parents and the child are living and bonding during all this time.
Third, the social worker had the opportunity to initiate and request and Expedited ICPC, which is completed in 30 days. For whatever reason, she did not. Had she done so, the child could have been placed with the relatives quicker and faster.
Instead, the social worker requested and ICPC, which took months and months. Apparently, and as usual, a regular ICPC takes months and months and months. And on top of that there was further delay because the County social worker delayed the process, the California ICPC office delayed processing the request, and then Oklahoma delayed the process because someone went on vacation.
While all of this was pending, the parents’ parental rights were terminated at the Welfare & Institutions Code section 366.26 hearing.
About a month later, the Oklahoma ICPC was approved, but the relatives were no longer legal relatives since the parents lost their parental rights. Relatives are relatives only through the parents; and if the parents lose their rights, the relatives in turn lose their relationship with the children as well.
The relatives did go to court and request that the child still be placed with them, but they were denied. The fact that they were no longer relatives, and the fact that the child had formed a loving bond with the child after all that time, were things used by the juvenile court to justify not giving the child to the Oklahoma relatives.
The next case is out of San Diego County. The child was taken from the parents based on the allegations that mother had mental and emotional deficits, and that the father was responsible for the death of a sibling. The child was placed in a single parent foster home.
As it turns out, the social worker claimed that she was never told of any relatives that wanted the child placed in their home. And as it turned out, there were 3 relative families in San Diego, one in Arizona, one in Colorado, one in Alabama and one in Korea. The Arizona and Korea families were stationed in that locale, as part of the United States Armed forces. It appears that the social worker either spoke to, or had the chance to speak to some of these relatives, but never inquired if they wanted the child; instead waiting for the relative to take some affirmative action to have the child placed in their homes.
This is not the law in California. California Welfare and Institutions Code section 309, requires the social worker to search out and find, and to use “due diligence” to find relatives. If you think about it, this is an onerous burden for the social workers, but it is the law. And the biggest problem is that most attorneys are not familiar with this particular law, or choose not to fight for it, or enforce it at every hearing, especially the disposition hearing. In this case, it was conceded that there was no due diligence filed with the court. And honestly, after 25 years of practice as an attorney in this area, I’ve never seen a due diligence for relatives filed with the court. I take that back, San Francisco uses an outside service to locate relatives, but I don’t think it was filed with the court. But there, one of the relatives informed me that she did get a call, but the caller basically called to talk her out of wanting to have the child placed in her home. And the relative went along with the recommendation that the child not be placed in the relative home.
Yet, despite these facts, the court left the child in the foster home because the child had formed a bond with the foster parent.
The third case is an interesting case out of San Bernardino County. The children were removed from the parents because of allegations of mutual domestic violence. At the beginning of the case, I provided 25 names of relatives to the social worker. After 2 months, the social worker refused to investigate and report to the court about any of the relatives. The children were in foster care, and the recommendation by the social worker, for concurrent planning, was adoption by the foster family.
Here’s the funny part. The number one relatives was the maternal grandparents, who were both medical surgeons from El Salvador. Both traveled to/from the United States frequently, visiting and working in the United States. Both came to the San Bernardino, and the court was informed that they would stay there as long as necessary to keep the children, and to get them out of foster care. Turns out the grandfather had a United States Visa that expired in 2021, and the grandmother had a Visa that expired in 2018.
WIC 309 states that the immigration status of the relative care takers cannot be considered. So if you are undocumented, that cannot be used against you in getting your relative children placed with you. Notwithstanding, the social worker told the grandparents after they arrived in California, that they could not have the children because they weren’t citizens. And the worker’s attorney argued in court that since they were not permanent residents, they children could not be placed with these grandparents. And initially, the court seemed to go along with that, but began reversing when I pressed the matter.
Now, on my recommendation, the grandparents I recommend these grandparents come from El Salvador, and I had section 309 on our side.
After a trial, the judge informed me that the children should be placed with the mother, my client, after her home was checked out, and after we filed a Restraining Order against the father. It seemed that I had pushed the relative placement issue so hard, the court decided just to place the children back with the mother. Maybe it was easier than investigating 25 relatives, and dealing with the Immigration issues.

All Sheriff’s Officers Police and Police Officers must be made aware of the biggest pediphile ring in America hidding in child Protective Services.
There have been many testimonies before congress like my wife and myself. the fact that nothing has been done to protect our children so far from this pediphile criminal ring doing business as CPS shows me that congress is willing to continue to take the money from the sale of children knowing their lives are destroyed. We have to take steps to destroy CPS from the inside our selves. We are working on steps to undermine CPS as we speak. We will give a detailed plan out here in the next few weeks for parents to teach at home or to tell you children when you see them. The way to start now is every single day you see your child tell them you love them no matter what, they can come home to you and everything CPS tells them is a lie. Make sure they have a phone number known by heart, kids are smart teach them your number in a song, it is easy and all parents must stick together, tell everyone you know to never call CPS.
The other day I posted that I was retiring from donnellyjustice. Many people commented on that post. Everyone was so caring and supportive and thankful for all that my husband and I have been doing for the cause and exposing this corrupt, evil system that steals our children. So, I won’t be retiring after all, too many people need this information and I may have felt like giving up the other day, but I changed my mind. I apologize for publicizing my weaknesses and insecurities. I was at rock bottom that day. I won’t give up, ever.
Thank you so much to those who commented. Your comments are gone because I deleted the post.
So, if you can tell, I was experiencing personal problems.
back to the subject of this post:
…ESPECIALLY WHEN IT WAS YOU AND YOUR SPOUSE’S LOVE CHILD!
My husband and I made such a beautiful baby. He was so healthy when he was born! My husband’s ex-wife, Leslie Ann Logan Hoyle, was such a jealous freak that she called the hospital and CPS over 25 times during the 4 days I was in labor!
Does anyone know what an APGAR score is? Well its an assessment of a newborn baby and whether or not it needs immediate medical attention. The highest score is a 10.0. If a newborn is going through DRUG WITHDRAWALS there is NO WAY it would score a 9.9 like my son was given! My husband’s extremely vindictive ex-wife, Leslie Ann Logan Hoyle (Ann Jule), is so disturbed that she would make false allegations against us simply because one time I wrote her a letter that made her face the things she had done to her own children. Leslie Ann Logan Hoyle also has an “in” with the Department as her mother worked at the same office that the social workers who came to the hospital worked at. She worked there for over 35 years. Also, Leslie Ann Logan Hoyle WAS a registered nurse AND A DRUG ADDICT who often went to this same hospital to get shots of morphine or demerol when she was jonesing, and CLAIMED THAT SHE KNEW THOSE WHO WORKED IN LABOR AND DELIVERY. She MADE CPS TAKE OUR SON AWAY THE VERY FIRST TIME. IF THERE WAS NEVER THE FIRST CASE, THERE NEVER WOULD HAVE BEEN ANY SECONDARY CASE. .
Long story short, our love child was adopted out to people who refuse to even speak to us despite being CHRISTIANS!
This has put such a strain on our marraige, I can’t even begin to explain it because it is personal however, I would like to dedicate the song, “Stay” by Rhianna to my husband, who can dish it out but can’t take it. I wish I didn’t dish it out back at him at all. I wish we could just be nice and get along like normal people but HAVING YOUR CHILD STOLEN AND HAVING NO RECOURSE (OR AT LEAST IT TAKING SO LONG TO FILE OUR RECOURSE BECAUSE I DEAL WITH TOO MUCH PERSONAL STUFF) puts a great strain on us individually.
P.S., Check out the Juvenile Dependency Court page, I have added a few things and will be working on providing even more information. I am also putting together a “Juvenile Dependency Court Survival Guide”. I hope to have this done within the next few weeks.
STAY – RHIANNA

All along it was a fever
A cold sweat hot-headed believer
I threw my hands in the air I said show me something
He said, if you dare come a little closer
Round and around and around and around we go
Ohhh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know
Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay
It’s not much of a life you’re living
It’s not just something you take, it’s given
Round and around and around and around we go
Ohhh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know
Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay
Ohhh the reason I hold on
Ohhh cause I need this hole gone
Funny you’re the broken one but I’m the only one who needed saving
Cause when you never see the lights it’s hard to know which one of us is caving
Not really sure how to feel about it
Something in the way you move
Makes me feel like I can’t live without you
It takes me all the way
I want you to stay, stay
I want you to stay, ohhh
I have been REALLY MISSING MY SON lately, I mean EVEN MORE THAN USUAL!
What would YOU do if this happened to you? I know most of our visitors have gone through this same ordeal, I am talking to those who have never been personally involved with CPS (other than to maybe adopt a child). Would you be able to control yourself? Would you just say, “Well, they all thought I was a bad parent so I must have been so my child is better off without me.”? Or would you do anything you were possibly capable of? But guess what? They file a RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST YOU! The ADOPTED PARENTS WON’T EVEN LISTEN TO YOU!! You can’t call or text them let alone go to their house or you’ll go to JAIL AGAIN! What do you do? Maybe if any adoptive parents out there have the answer, please comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Click on the picture or here: VIDEOS OF DONNELLY
CPS whistleblower tells it all how CPS is a terrorist group stealing children. This video tells it like it is.
Everyone in the united states needs to watch this video if you have family.
CPS takes children on purpose and by ignorance.
This corruption is not even hidden. If you could do a child a favor and just show this video to parents. EVERYONE MUST KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON WITH OUR
All Parents in the united states better know what to do because this is not only happening to other people. YOU BETTER KNOW WHAT TO DO. The knowledge parents need to know when CPS knocks on your door is far to much to learn in a weekend. I have been deeply embedded in these Juvenile Court Proceedings and Law for almost 6 years now only now do I feel confident enough to hold these people accountable. This is because Juvenile CPS law involves, criminal, custody, constitutional, Juvenile Dependency Statutes,,Adoption Codes of Civil Procedure, ,Welfare & Institutions Code and if this isn’t enough then you have to make the JUDGE actually do his job with Dependency Quick Guide – DOGBOOK because they do not give a shit about your children even is they tell you they do and say what you want to hear, I was there the manipulation of these compulsive liars will make you mental after the case is over for not learning this courts boundaries. Don’t get me wrong you only have to learn the parts that pertain to JV Court or CPS JV dependency court. My family was so deeply violated by this Judge I felt the need to learn as much as I could to gain some kind of understanding why this happened but I learned about the funding and how it gets spent and who gets it.. Only now do I see how inept my lawyer truly was and still is or he just has no morals. Don’t think you can wait all this information is on this site. You better get busy. We did the legwork and we will always be here to continue to help. Ask anything you wish and I promise we will try our best to answer everyone. If you don’t get us by email fast enough call please, don’t feel ashamed, we know how important this is for all parents.

God Bless you and your Family
In this video Donnelly interrupts his reading lession to ask his Aunt Cindy where her house is. You hear the laughter to her reply.
Following this article is California Welfare & Institutions Code Section 309 text regarding relative placement.
After CPS stole our son from us and us “stealing” him back, in June 2011 and then being falsely charged with “kidnapping” CPS unlicensed social worker, Antoine Coley went to Arizona to get Donnelly and transport him across state lines. The worker claims, in the contact notes, “There were no marks or bruises. Donnelly appeared to be happy he played with my cell phone while we waited. He wanted to call his mommy and daddy and he was very excited when he mentioned that he saw them.”
After placing Donnelly in foster care, Coley and his supervisor, Amanda Spratley, set up visits for Donnelly to see his Aunt Cindy, his three adult brothers, his sister and his Grandfather (Pop-pop). They visited with Donnelly twice a month for 6 months. All of these relatives established even stronger bonds with Donnelly than they already had. Cindy tried desperately to get placement of Donnelly.
We were denied any visitation while we were in jail (yes, the courts do allow visits with parents who are in county jail all the time).
Cindy and her husband were cleared and her home was approved on 6/9/2011 but LIAR, Antoine Coley, kept telling her that he did not think that she was approved. In fact, on 7/19/2011 during a face to face visit with Donnelly in the foster home, Coley told the foster “father” that he “anticipated Donnelly remaining in placement” [with him]. This foster home was not completely certified as they had not completed the Assess All and as of 9/19/2011 the foster people still had not completed the paperwork! So they put Donnelly somewhere that was not completely verified and certified while Cindy was completely cleared and approved!
During that face to face contact on 7/19/2011 Donnelly was still asking about us and talked about how the police “took my mommy and daddy” and asked to use his phone so he could call us.
Cindy told me that Donnelly asked about us at every visit.
Coley continued to tell Cindy that she was not approved for placement.
On 8/22/2011 Coley had another face to face visit with Donnelly at the foster home. He notes in his contact log that Donnelly is still talking about us and how we are with the police. The contact notes states again that Donnelly “tells the other children that his parents are with the police quite frequently” and wants to know when we will come get him. What does this tell you about how Donnelly was feeling? It is apparent that he missed us a whole lot and had not forgotten about us whatsoever.
On 10/24/11 Donnelly was introduced to his now adoptive parents. They took him to their house for the weekend. They had a second weekend stay-over on 10/29/2011.
On 10/30/2011 Cindy received the approval letter after contacting the RAU worker directly.
On 11/2/2011 Coley informed our family that it was their last visit with Donnelly and told Cindy to tell Donnelly it was his last visit with his family. The case notes say, “I spoke to the family prior to the start of the visit about the adoption hearing and informed them that I anticipated placing Donnelly in an adoptive home within the next week. I explained to them the adoptions process. They asked if there was anything that they could do to get placement of Donnelly. I informed the siblings that they can request to be assessed for placement and that AI would complete the referral to RAU on their behalf The paternal aunt reports that she was approved for placement. I informed her that I have not received the approval letter but would look into the matter. The family was very emotional and indicated that they are willing to do whatever it takes to protect Donnelly and get placement of him.” They tried not to show how disappointed they all were in front of Donnelly and tried to make their last birthday celebration with him as fun as possible in a Foster Agency visitation room.
They terminated the visits because Donnelly was being placed with the prospective adoptive people and they were going to adopt him. We were not even out of jail yet! Our rights were not terminated either! The “permanent plan” of adoption hearing was still two months away!
When Cindy told Donnelly about it being the last visit she said that his face turned white and he completely lost his spirit.
Donnelly was placed with his adoptive parents on 11/4/2011, merely two days later. The “mother” immediately began calling Donnelly “her son” and made him call them “Mommy & Daddy”. (That is what she posted on her Facebook).
She posted expressions of being blessed and extremely happy to “be a Mommy”. She also posted that having a child is “expensive” and “tiring” and after a trip to Disneyland she said that Donnelly had “no attention span”. After she got her car detailed one day she complained, “It took my son, what, less than 5 minutes to ruin it”. She also complains that Donnelly is a ‘drama king” and that he knows how to manipulate being sick so he doesn’t have to go to school. I recall a post where she proclaimed that her day was day from “H E double hockey sticks”. (If I claimed to be so “blessed” with the opportunity to have a child after not being able to conceive one of my own, I would not post one single complaint. But that’s probably just me then, right?
At the hearing when they terminated our rights, on March 1, 2012, Antoine Coley and Amanda Spratley sat in the back row of the court. When the Judge finished his speech and his condemnation of us, everyone was crying. I was hysterical, Bill had to leave the courtroom he was so upset, even the court cohorts were putting on a good show. BUT ANTOINE COLEY AND AMANDA SPRATLEY, JUMPED UP FOR JOY, HUGGING EACH OTHER AGAIN AND AGAIN, AND CONGRATULATING EACH OTHER WITH SMILES FROM EAR TO EAR!
In September, when we finally received the Clerk’s Transcript on Appeal (the appellate lawyer was so lame that he failed to review the last 3 hearing transcripts and specifically requested to EXCLUDE the detention hearing reporter’s transcripts). In the court records I came across the names of the people who were adopting Donnelly.
It took me four months before I began writing a letter to these people because we were very reluctant to upset anyone. Finally, in December after careful deliberation and consideration as to how contact would affect them, possibly affect Donnelly, and what would happen to us. We researched the laws and found nothing that prohibited us from writing to them. (Just like I consulted with two attorneys prior to publishing this post to make sure it doesn’t violate their restraining order.)
I saw that the adoption was finalized on November 2, 2012 at the Southwest Justice Center’s Adoption Finalization Day. They have this event every year in November so for all of you whose children are being adopted out of this court, stay informed of the date they have this finalization day that way you can go there and protest, see your child one last time or try to speak to the adoptive parents before they put a restraining order on you.
I mailed the letter in mid January 2013. After no indication that they even received the letter, I wrote a very polite and short follow-up. Shortly after they received it, this devoted Presbyterian posted that she “hates us” when she doesn’t even know us.
I guess their hatred for us motivated them to get a restraining order. They claimed that they were “terrified” to learn that we knew who they were and where Donnelly was. They claimed that they feared that we were going to “kidnap” Donnelly again. How many people WRITE A LETTER to people whose child they plan to kidnap? I don’t t believe that they were “terrified” by any means, I think they just don’t want to share Donnelly whatsoever.
Our correspondence included home videos as well as a 36 page explanation of exactly what happened to us and how CPS treated us. I wrote this letter from my heart. Bill wrote a letter too. It was nice and sincere and the exact opposite from threatening. We thanked them for caring for our son. We told them that we believed he was safe with them and that we believed they had established a mutual bond and we were glad we did not have to worry about the quality of his care. We made sure that they knew that we had absolutely no intentions to ruin that or to take him away from them. We just wanted to tell him that we did not abandon him, that what happened was not his fault, that we are OK, that we miss him terribly, that he is such a good boy and we are so proud of him for being so strong. We feel he deserves to know that we are OK and that we love him with all our heart.
I offered for them to meet us alone, without Donnelly and that if, after meeting and talking with my husband and I, they decided that we were bad people we would have to accept that and try to move on and not bother them.
I really believed that they would at least call us and say, “Bug off losers!” if meeting us was out of the question. But they had to get the cops and the courts involved and spend $4,000 on an attorney. We went to court and tried to fight the restraining order but we lost, which completely baffles me since nothing in those letters were the least bit threatening and really, who would write before doing something crazy?
Donnelly deserves to have a relationship with his original family. His siblings have a right to have a relationship with him especially since we already know where he is and there is nothing that they could reveal to us to put Donnelly “in danger” (which is a crock anyway). These people are denying him that right because they choose to believe CPS over us and OUR EVIDENCE. CPS showed them nothing real, just false statements and other people’s criminal records.
So, the court cohorts and Antoine Coley went way out of their way to lie to Cindy about being approved for placement so that they could adopt Donnelly out for the incentive money and just to teach us, and the public, a lesson for rescuing him from them. The court cohorts claimed that we were too “dangerous” to even know where our son was however, they didn’t even lift a finger to prevent us from finding these people’s names in the court records! Not one single effort to use a sharpie on their names! It was like they got their money and washed their hands of it. Just goes to show you how unreal their statements about us are.
Now we are trying to be supportive to people who are going through even worse railroading by these people and just because this person speaks to us, they were told that it was “very detrimental to her case” and that “it doesn’t look good”.
What doesn’t look good is how they conduct their hearings. Every hearing is void of statutory requirements, in violation of countless Cal.Rules of Ct., and full of obvious bias toward the Department.
The Baby Sammy story is an excellent example of what CPS does to thousands and thousands of parents each month. If the news aired at least ONE of the countless stories they receive each month similar to that story, maybe people would realize that we just may be telling the truth! It was mentioned in the Restraining Order complaint that our story “is heartbreaking if true” but they didn’t really consider it true or they are in complete denial about that possibility and simply fear that Donnelly will love us more than them or maybe she is has convinced herself that she actually gave birth to him.?

deemed to have been taken into temporary custody and delivered to the
social worker for the purposes of this chapter while the child is at
the office of the physician and surgeon or the medical facility.
(c) If the child is not released to his or her parent or guardian,
the child shall be deemed detained for purposes of this chapter.
(d) (1) If an able and willing relative, as defined in Section
319, or an able and willing nonrelative extended family member, as

Section 16504.5 and a check of allegations of prior child abuse or
neglect concerning the relative or nonrelative extended family member
and other adults in the home. Upon completion of this assessment,
the child may be placed in the assessed home. For purposes of this
paragraph, and except for the criminal records check conducted
pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 16504.5, the standards used to
determine suitability shall be the same standards set forth in the
regulations for the licensing of foster family homes.

Code, the child shall not be placed in the home. If the criminal
records check indicates that the person has been convicted of a crime
for which the Director of Social Services may grant an exemption
under Section 1522 of the Health and Safety Code, the child shall not
be placed in the home unless a criminal records exemption has been
granted by the county based on substantial and convincing evidence to
support a reasonable belief that the person with the criminal
conviction is of such good character as to justify the placement and
not present a risk of harm to the child.
(e) (1) If the child is removed, the social worker shall conduct,
within 30 days, an investigation in order to identify and locate all
grandparents, adult siblings, and other adult relatives of the child,

There are State run agencies who are supposed to be protecting abused children in dangerous situations. Each State has many different titles for them. All of them are main stapled as CPS (HHS) Health and Human Services (Department of Child Protective Services) While there is an important need to find abused children and to protect them, the current system is only finding a small percentage of those truly abused children.
The rest of their statistics that guarantee a high departmental income are from families who never abused their children. Where they get this income and the sources of information will be posted after the next paragraph. I am not calling for an abolishment of CPS. What I am calling for is an overhaul and restructure to bring them in line with lawful investigation practices, to maintain Constitutional Rights and proper training for Agents who never had children, and psychological evaluations to find and replace the Agents who were themselves abused as Children and see abuse in every home regardless of the situation. This is not, I repeat, not a rare occurrence.
I will supply statistics to support this and how this has escalated. I will also supply the sources. Departmental income has become more important to CPS and their offices than actually finding abused children and protecting them. Each and every time they remove a child from the home, they get paid from the Federal Government. Of course they lie and say they are not,.Here they are:
1. Public Law 93-247 known as the Mondale Act of 1974. 2. Public Law 96-272 known as the Adoption Assistance and Child Welfare Act of 1980 3. Social Security Title IV-E funds. The ASFA- Public Law 105-89 known as American Safe Families Act of 1997 is one of the most horrific laws on the books today. While it sounds nice in the title, when you get through the legal jargon, what this means is so wrong.
If you ever had a child removed from your house by CPS, even UNFOUNDED and you are innocent, they will take that child in minutes after the child is born! Babies are highly adoptable and the Federal Government pays out $6,000 to the CPS office who conducts the legal kidnapping and gets them adopted quickly without regards to the biological Mother and her family. Since she was investigated once, they do this in the “best interests of the child” as she is a “potential” abuser. The largest targeted types of families are folks with low incomes, children on SSI and are minorities. If you even have one of those three issues, you are a target for CPS to illegally investigate you.
While these things are a surefire magnet, they have been known to do illegal investigations against families if they were reported falsely with malicious intent. Example is an ex-wife wants to get even with her ex-husband and his new family; she could report them and put them through Hell. Why are the reasons CPS Agents actually find so little true abuse? 1. Agents who never had children and don’t understand that a few toys in the corner of the room is not a hazardous mess. 2. Agents are not trained in real evidence recognition. In fact, no Agent in CPS has any training in evidence, the Constitution or criminal justice.
They are given anywhere from 3 to 6 months of training, being taught that it is ok to break into a Home without probable cause or exigent circumstances. 3. Agents are trained to use subjective speculation and not objective factual reporting. 4. The Agents do not get psychological evaluations. A number of Agents who were abused as a child themselves see abuse in every home they go into, even if it’s not there. 5. Most States do not require Agents to have a degree in Social Sciences. Any degree will do, doesn’t even have to be related to the field. 6. The Agency has no checks and balances. A field Agent can lie to a judge or police officer with absolutely no proof and have it entered as factual evidence in a court of law! 7. Agents are trained to believe they are immune from the authority of
the First Amendment, Fourth Amendment, Fifth Amendment, Sixth Amendment and Fourteenth Amendment. They violate this in every investigation done nationwide. Petition: Here are the statistics and sources to support these facts: Number of Cases per 100,000 children in the United States. These numbers come from The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect (NCCAN) in Washington. CPS- Physical Abuse (160) Sexual Abuse (112) Neglect (410) Medical Neglect (14) Fatalities (6.4) Parents- Physical Abuse (59) Sexual Abuse (13) Neglect (241) Medical Neglect (12) Fatalities (1.5) As you can see, children are abused far more in care than at home.
The calculated average is for every 1 abused children removed from an abusive home, there are 17 children removed from loving non-offending homes nationwide. Constitutional Violations and Court Rulings that CPS Ignores to this very day! 1. It’s unconstitutional for CPS to conduct an investigation and interview a child on private property without exigent circumstances or probable cause. – Doe et al, v. Heck et al (No. 01-3648, 2003 US App. Lexis 7144) 2. All CPS workers in the United States are subject to the 4th and 14th Amendment – Walsh v. Erie County Dept. of Job and Family Services, 3:01-cv-7588 3. Police officers and social workers are not immune for coercing or forcing entry into a person’s home without a search warrant. Calibrate v. Floyd (9th Cir. 1999) 4.
The mere possibility of danger does not constitute an emergency or exigent circumstance that would justify a forced warrant less entry and a warrant less seizure of a child. Hurlman v. Rice (2nd Cir. 1991) 5. Police officer and social worker may not conduct a warrant less search or seizure in a suspected child abuse case absent exigent circumstances. Defendants must have reason to believe that life or limb is in immediate jeopardy and that the intrusion is reasonable necessary to alleviate the threat. Searches and seizures in investigation of a child neglect or child abuse case at a home are governed by the same principles as other searches and seizures at a home. Good v. Dauphin County Social Services (3rd Cir. 1989) 6. The Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable searches and seizures extends beyond criminal investigations and includes conduct by social workers in the context of a child neglect/abuse investigation. Lenz
v. Winburn (11th Cir. 1995) 7. Making false statements made to obtain a warrant, when the false statements were necessary to the finding of probable cause on which the warrant was based, violates the Fourth Amendment’s warrant requirement. Aponte Matos v. Toledo Davilla (1st Cir. 1998) What can be done to change this for a better, healthier Child Protection System? I. Child Abuse is a Crime, not a touchy freely civil complaint and should be investigated as a crime. II. Have the abuse allegations investigated by a Detective or Police Officer, who are trained for this as a career, whereas CPS workers are not. All investigations are joint ones with said Officers of the Law and with warrants properly issues under probable cause. III. Re-train Agents to respect and obey the laws of the Constitution of the United States
. If a family is guilty of abuse, a legal investigation will find it. IV. Repeal the Mondale Act, Adoption Assistance and Child Welfare Act, Title IV-E rewards to CPS from Social Security and the American Safe Families Act. Remember, they are not what the title sounds like and has been the root core of many loving homes losing their children to a system that will abuse them. V. Make CPS legally investigates those who sign up to be foster parents.
They do not do this today, and many foster parents who want the money for fostering them are actually child abusers who never get caught! VI. All interviews to be audio and video recorded just like it happens with the police! VII. Hold CPS Agents and foster parents and the records keeper responsible for every child who vanishes or dies in their care for their location. VIII. Also investigate the person or persons reporting the abuse, and if done maliciously with intent to disrupt a family, prosecute the reporter to the fullest extent of the Law regarding making false claims to Government Agencies to affect an unnecessary and costly investigation. IX. Abuse is a Crime, guarantee the accused retain their right to face their accusers in a court of law. As the system currently is, this is not done. X.
The Children are to be tracked on a weekly basis, so no more children vanish in the system. XI. If a disabled, mentally retarded or sick Child is put into Foster Care, the Child’s current Physician will need to provide a copy of the diagnosis and treatment, and medications, if any, will be provided as prescribed by the Physician. All appointments must be kept while in Foster Care. Any violations without a very good reason will result in the Foster Parents
losing their certification for Foster Care. XII. If a Foster Child dies while in Foster Care, there will be an Investigation by the FBI and all parties responsible for the Death of a Child will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. XIII. There will be a National Database where all known abusers are recorded and can be accessed by Law Enforcement. Everyone who is found not guilty won’t have their Convictions and Abuse Reports listed. It will be illegal to keep records of any sort on innocent individuals or families. If they are convicted in a court of law by a jury of their peers, then the report of abuse they are guilty of will be the only report listed.
Currently, none of this is done, and innocent families who are not guilty of anything are losing their Children based on the word of others where there is no burden of proof for Prosecution, for the sake of getting Federal Funds for tens of thousands of dollars. The few truly abused children are ending up in a system where they are worse off than where they came from, even to the extent of being killed. Also, the innocent children who are never abused are also killed.
These people amaze me by their confidence in nothing, they have no positive data to back anything they do. They come into your home because someone called the hot line to cause you pain and suffering like an ex-wife who lost in divorce court and doesn’t want the children to love you over her.
The attorney’s are so completely incompetent, do not object to anything, and only want to push you and your kids through the system even if it ruins the entire family as long as they get paid. My attorney guided me through the entire process and now that it is over I have found out all the things he did to make sure I lost. This Attorney Daniel Vinson knew very clearly that I was not guilty and let so many things be presented as evidence even while I was sitting there and stated I do not have a drug history, why are they saying I do. I never had any charges or drug convictions in the past and he did not object to anything but passive willingness to let go of my parental rights. Only a CPS case from my ex wife after she was on antidepressants. I have done the research and have over 1800 pages of evidence from this court that I will get into court. I have written many reports of the amount of evidence we have and it is just a matter of time. If it isn’t me it will be someone else this information has been given to .
County counsel Mrs Jamiilla Purnell brought up information she had absolutely no knowledge of and stated theory as if it were fact. If anyone in this court room were ever in a real court of law they would be completely run out of the court room until they learned of to conduct themselves like a professional. CPS and county counsel submitted a criminal record that was not mini and it belonged to a man 10 years older than me. I told my lawyer many times that I had no drug history and he continued to sit on this information and it was a major factor in my railroading by the South West JV Civil courtroom system and is well known for over 20 years that nothing in this court is for the child’s best interest.
They are the only ones in this system that believe CPS has anyone convinced they do care and it is only a matter of time now until this court and the money taken by CPS courts and then placed into an account that any state agency can take funds from as needed and this is all documented in the 2011 grand jury investigation.
It is truly amazing that these attorney’s will cover up any way for you to win against CPS to the point of destroying any respect the client could possibly have for their ability to defend you properly. These people are sociopaths who care about nothing.,
The three most common ways of stopping a parents visit to take control of a child welfare. Tell the parent the child doesn’t want to see you.
Make false accusation of crimes committed by the parent and say you will be convicted to scare them into signing the case plan. Answer tell them to bring it on because you know you are not guilty. Believe me the criminal courts are 1000% more fare than the CPS court. CPS courts are unconstitutional and private. Even if you submit proof of your innocents it will not make it on the record. Remember this always when you talk to anyone in these courts. CPS has been caught repeatedly selling children to child trafficking and anyone who challenges me on this better have their facts in order because I have FBI reports, Grand Jury Reports that have been done over and over again and CPS fails to follow any recommendations.
Any Parent should know when CPS cuts off your parental contact with your child, this is against the law and you should always take steps to counter this asap do not let this go. CPS is trying to break the parental bond because you and your child have a close relationship.and CPS finds this to be their biggest enemy to people ever trusting them, I got news for CPS people will never trust CPS. You have to actually care about kids.first. I found information in a report for the continuity of US Government and this report actually suggested having community centers to raise the child. What these reports don’t ever mention is that children are so much better raised by the bond of a mother who cares endlessly for their child, and the community center is just a paid babysitter and everyone knows how that always works out.. Maybe if you doubt any of this is because it sounds crazy and it is but that doesn’t say that it isn’t true.
I read a story of the couple whose two young children were removed from them because social workers thought their son’s bone fractures must have been caused by physical abuse.
Only after a nightmarish 18-month ordeal, which drove the couple apart, were they finally able to produce medical evidence to indicate that the boy’s injuries were caused naturally, by brittle bone disease.
The court dropped the case, and Amy Garland and her children are now happily reunited.
When I spoke to her last night she told me how lucky she’d been to be put in touch with a medical expert who established the truth when Doctor’s for CPS were so wiling to say what they were told to say.
I listened to her story with particular interest because it is only one more example in a very dark area of our national life I have long been investigating, and which I have come to see as one of the greatest scandals unfolding today — as shocking as anything I have come across in all my five decades as a journalist.
In the past two years, the number of children being taken away from their parents by social workers has soared by almost 50 per cent to an all-time record level of nearly 10,000 a month shown by billing records.
And having followed scores of such cases in detail, it is abundantly clear to me that in far too many of them there is absolutely no reason why the families should be torn apart in this way.
Forcibly separating happy, well-cared for children from loving, responsible parents creates a tragedy which will last for the rest of the lives of all those involved — even if they are eventually reunited. The emotional agony if the children who are permanently removed is the worst crime imaginable and should be punishable for life, the same punishment the family receives when a child is lost to these NAZI criminals. If I was to decide the fate of a social worker found guilty of stealing my child, with out ever giving it another thought, the sentence would be life behind bars with no possibility of parole.
Of course there is no objection to social workers removing children from parents who have genuinely abused them. As we know from many notorious examples, social workers have failed to take into care children who died as a result. It is so hard to consider any statements made by CPS today, so many statements have turned out to be false and after some digging were just pleas for public sympathy and increase funding. I will say this children have been sent into the lions den many times to get increases in funding.
But a key reason for the rise in the number of children now being seized from their parents is that, precisely to avoid such scandals like, the child porn ring Senator Nancy Schaefer brought to public attention, social workers were caught head deep in corruption.
With the press silenced on a national level CPS is confident the pubic has not heard of the scandals and staggering numbers of children being removed for no good reason and that by going to the extreme, becoming trigger-happy, snatching children for possible crimes that may or may not happen is the way to prevent abuse, these people are so far removed from the American belief system that the day has come CPS must end.
What is most shocking about this is that the families then find themselves in the grip of a system which seems horribly rigged against them. Too often these cases will begin on the flimsiest of grounds, as when the social workers are tipped off by a malicious neighbor or an over-zealous teacher and the number one problem that comes up over and over again in these cases is a ex wife who just wants to destroy the father for hanging on to the children.
One mother I know, who holds down a responsible job, lost her two children when her only mistake was to tap her daughter’s arm with a roll of cling wrap.
The next day this was twisted by a foolish teacher into a charge that the girl had been ‘hit with an implement’, and the court paid a psychiatrist for a 235-page report arguing that the mother suffered from ‘a borderline personality disorder’, one of the vague, unprovable claims they love to use.
Another lost her three children after she had tripped up on a charity walk, pulling the daughter holding her hand to the ground. When a health visitor reported the bruises the child suffered as a result to social workers, without asking how these had arisen, they sent the mother to one psychiatrist after another until they also found one prepared to say she had a ‘borderline personality disorder’.
One of the sanest and brightest mothers I have come across had her baby removed after the woman had accidentally fallen from a window, because the social workers alleged that she had tried to commit suicide.
They phoned to tell her they were taking her baby while she lay temporarily paralyzed in the hospital.
On such dubious grounds, the social workers may arrive to snatch children from their beds, all too often accompanied by a gang of four or more policemen, who seem only too willing to comply with any demands the social workers make. It has become a all out war to keep your children protected from government.
One mother was breastfeeding her three-hour-old baby on a hospital bed when two social workers and four policemen burst into the room to take the child forcibly from her arms, after a series of false allegations were made against her only because she herself was taken from her parents years earlier. How does that make her guilty of any crime? It may make her inexperienced but not a bad mom.
The parents in such cases often find themselves treated like criminals, held for hours in police cells before being released without charge. But worse is to come when they arrive in a CPS court, where all the normal rules of justice don’t apply and the parent doesn’t have any idea what they have done but they already have found guilty by the unlicensed social workers in Riverside County.
The social workers can produce hearsay evidence which are guaranteed 85 % of the time, to be lies, but which the parents are not allowed to question, and the documents to the judge the parents are not even allowed to read, all for the best interest of the child. When did kidnapping the child away from family become in the child’s best interest?
If they are represented by court appointed lawyers, in most cases forced on them by the council, they often find that their lawyers refuse to oppose the council’s application for a care order — which allows the children to be removed for a longer period — and accept every allegation CPS makes.
The system hides itself away behind an impenetrable wall of secrecy
Most family judges are as much part of this broken system as the social workers themselves — one rare exception being the senior family judge who last year castigated the behavior of Devon social workers as ‘more like Stalin’s Russia or Mao’s China.
Meanwhile the children, generally ambushed and distraught at what is happening to them, are placed with foster caregivers, who receive on average 400.00 a week or 20,000 a year for each child from the federal government .
The biological parents and children may be allowed to meet for only a few hours a week of rigorously ‘supervised contact’, in CPS office ‘ this limited amount of time allows the court to use the excuse that all bonds have been severed.
Any expression of affection or mention of the court case is strictly forbidden and can be punished by suspension of the contact, possibly permanently.
It may sound hard to believe, but I know of cases where children have been groomed by the social workers and their foster caregivers to believe that their parents no longer love or want them. In several cases I have followed, it is clear that children in foster care are being maltreated or even sexually abused.
Finally, this travesty of justice may wind to its conclusion when, after anything up to two years, a judge agrees that a child can be sent for adoption — although in recent years our adoption rate has markedly fallen, leaving ever more thousands of these children as fodder for a ‘fostering industry’ which is now costing taxpayers more than 3 billion a year for California alone and this is paid by social security.
Obviously there are happier exceptions to this dreadful picture. Some children are rightly saved by social workers from genuine abuse, and there are many good and caring foster homes. But in far more cases, the other, more tragic scenario has become the norm to kidnap children to balance other state budgets
So, if things have gone so terribly wrong with our child protection system, why has this happened — and why have we not heard more about it? It is difficult for outsiders to realize just how corrupted it has become until they experience it at first hand — because the entire system has managed to hide itself away behind an impenetrable wall of secrecy and a press gag order.
It is time this astonishing national scandal was recognized for what it is, nothing but a child theft ring leading to prison, pornography, and hardships placed on innocent people that can never be forgiven. The suicide rate of parents that have lost their children is around 36% according to CPS this just proves how bad the home was. I say, it just may be how important the child is and the utter destruction our family leading such depression. CPS doesn’t understand how important the family is to the parent and I have been in the court room when the social worker looked at the parent after the parental rights were removed and laughed, could these monsters be any more hateful to the family? This is all completely against what CPS was created to do. Do we really want a government agency looking out for our children that doesn’t have a clue how much our family’s mean to us? For myself life just wouldn’t be good if I lost my children and anyone taking them will be risking his or her life and people you better wake up because this is going on in every state, every city and county across this country, I will defend my children with my life.
Supposedly designed to ‘protect the interests of the children’ by ensuring that they cannot be identified, this secrecy had been used by the system to conceal its workings from public view, by threatening parents with prison for talking about their case to outsiders, and even journalists like me for trying to report what goes on.
It is this cloak of secrecy which more than anything has allowed the system to go so far off the rails. Too many social workers are in the grip of a self-righteous, politically correct ideology which drives them to abuse the power the Government has given them over other people’s lives, in the conviction that they are doing good in the world. These people do know what they are really doing is harming people for life
The secrecy which surrounds the way they wield that power means they are hardly ever called to account.
Nothing did more to distort the system in this way than President Clinton’s personal crusade to drive up the number of adoptions by setting adoption targets for the number of children they place with new families.
They were given huge cash incentives to fulfill their quotas thanks to a government policy and adoption week fast track adoption destroying as many people as they can in the process which has left a terrible legacy in convincing both social workers and the courts that one of their prime duties is to seize children from their parents, even when there is no good reason for it.
It is time this astonishing national scandal was recognized for what it is, and for the trail of horrors it is perpetrating to be dragged into the light. This reporter is putting my life a risk by breaking the silence.

Request for Grand Jury Investigation of Butte County Child Protective Services
For Immediate Release
Contact: Sabrina Fendrick
NORML Women’s Alliance Requests Grand Jury Investigation Into the Butte County CA Children Services
Butte County, CA- On Friday March 9th, The NORML Women’s Alliance (NWA), along with Butte County residents, put forward a complaint to the Grand Jury of Butte requesting an investigation into the County Children Services Division for the agency’s perceived and widespread misconduct
The findings in the people’s request include numerous testimonials from directly affected persons, submitted herein via the GRAND JURY COMPLAINT FORMS, which relate varied claims of CSD misconduct.
The National Coalition for Child Protection Reform, in their report dated September 6, 2011, confirms Butte County leads all of California’s large counties in the percentage rate of permanent removal of children from parents. Previously, the Grand Jury undertook a limited “narrow” investigation of the Children Services Division which did not sufficiently address all aspects of CSD conduct, nor addressed the narrow criteria of “front end” issues in a thorough, transparent manner conducive to meaningful, unbiased investigation and findings.
The NORML Women’s Alliance of Butte County, and NORML attorneys have put forth recommendations that they believe are in the best interest of Butte County children including a broad based investigation and a financial audit.
The NWA Community Leader of Butte County, Tamara Lujan, issued the following statement, “We thank the Grand Jury for its time, consideration and diligence in pursing our request. Only when government agencies have proper oversight can we as a community rest assured that corruption, abuse and other misdeeds are kept in check and deterred. Together We the People of Butte County and the Grand Jury can make these necessary strides of investigation and oversight to ensure all Butte families are truly served well, and are safe and secure at home.”
On September 7, 2011, three weeks before the BINTF and CPS burst into their home and stole their children, two deputies from Butte County Sheriff’s Office trespassed onto a clearly marked private road.
This came after Bram and Walsh had witnessed sheriff’s helicopters fly over their area all summer.
The deputies made their way around a locked and gated driveway and then onto the property of Bram and Walsh’s remote home located somewhere on a mountain in Concow, California.
The deputies claimed they were there for a so-called “compliance check” – which is a nice way to make an end run around probable cause and the entire Fourth Amendment in order to illegally “access to private homes to investigate legal medicinal cannabis gardens for potential arrest and prosecution,” according to the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Legislation (NORML).
During this “compliance check” one of the deputies assured Walsh that “everything looks okay” and wished him luck with his baby since all of the necessary and appropriate medical records were in order.
Now Bram and Walsh are facing a whopping eight class A felonies, six of which deal with cannabis and two of which relate to alleged child abuse.
While Walsh represented himself and his wife during a preliminary hearing, they are now being represented by Michael Levinsohn and Jen Reeder.
Both charges related to child abuse were dropped, along with one of the charges dealing with cannabis.
This leaves the couple facing five criminal charges in relation to cannabis, although on March 13, Butte County Assistant District Attorney Jeff Greeson re-filed the felony child abuse and misdemeanor child endangerment charges against Bram.
“Considering the felony and misdemeanor charges were dropped, and are now being re-filed after public outcry and the filing for a Grand Jury Investigation, we can come to no other conclusion except this is a retaliatory measure, from the Butte County DA’s office,” Tamara Lujan, NORML Women’s Alliance Community Leader for Butte County, said ina statement .
At no point has there been an attempt by the prosecutors to verify the validity of the couple’s status as qualified medical marijuana patients in the state of California.
Walsh and Bram both have recommendations for medical marijuana from a doctor which are legally recognized in the state of California.
With the federal government continuing to wage a war against medical cannabis and trample all over state’s rights in the process, some individuals at the state level have begun to succumb to the pressure.
This is seen in the case of dispensaries in Los Angeles (which are completely legal under state law, but not federal law), as well as in the case of the University of California, San Francisco kicking out an unimaginably sick patient for using her desperately needed medication, which just happens to be medical marijuana.
After the suffering of Bram, Walsh and their children emerged, other local residents have come forward with their own complaints which are quite similar to those of Bram and Walsh.
These complaints also focus on the BINTF and the Child Services Division of Butte County, which currently leads in the percentage rate of permanent removal of children from parents throughout all California counties.
In response to this trend, the NORML Women’s Alliance (NWA) filed an official request calling for an investigation, including a financial audit, by the Grand Jury in Butte County.
On March 9, the NWA and Butte County residents issued a complaint to the Grand Jury of Butte County requesting that they investigate the County Children Services Division for alleged widespread misconduct and malfeasance.
In the request, which was detailed in a recent press release they cited multiple testimonials directly from people who had been affected by the agency’s actions, as well as various detailed account of the Child Services Division’s questionable activities.
“We thank the Grand Jury for its time, consideration and diligence in pursing our request. Only when government agencies have proper oversight can we as a community rest assured that corruption, abuse and other misdeeds are kept in check and deterred,” Lujan said.
“Together We the People of Butte County and the Grand Jury can make these necessary strides of investigation and oversight to ensure all Butte families are truly served well, and are safe and secure at home,” Lujan added.
Hopefully the Grand Jury will actually do their job and hold these agencies to account while actually serving the people of Butte County.
Unfortunately, in some cases when individuals actually try to do their job – like New York City Police Department Officer Adrian Schoolcraft – they are targeted for harassment and abuse.
INS LINKIf this popular movement in Butte County is successful, I will consider it a major victory (even though it is a relatively small-scale one) and hopefully it will encourage people to become more active at the local level in order to bring more transparency and accountability to government.
Acting at the local level can also be much more effective in pushing back against the increasingly tyrannical federal government, so I will continue to follow the case of Bram and Walsh closely and keep my readers updated.
Please do whatever you can to support their battle and if you happen to be a resident of Butte County, I encourage you to get directly involved in any way possible, even if it is just signing your name to a petition.
If you know of similar battles in your local area, please contact me so I can bring your struggle to a wider national and international audience and hopefully strengthen your cause.
