800 Child Abuse Reporting Hotline Operator: “Hello, how can I help you?”
Caller: “Yes, I want to report child abuse.”
800 Child Abuse Reporting Hotline Operator: “Can I have the name of the child and who is the caretaker?”
Caller: “Joey and his mother is beating him with a broomstick!”
800 Child Abuse Reporting Hotline Operator: “And how do you know this?”
Caller: “I hear the broomstick hit the child!”
800 Child Abuse Reporting Hotline Operator: “So you have not actually witnessed the child being beaten then?”
Caller: “No but I hear him crying!”
800 Child Abuse Reporting Hotline Operator: “Ok we will send someone out to check on Joey.”
What the caller does not know is that Joey is only 3 years old and was watching TV when the two dogs started playing and growling at each other playfully. They dogs knocked over the broomstick and it scared Joey. Joey’s mother quickly put the dogs outside and consoled her son. They played This Little Piggy” and soon Joey stopped crying. Joey’s mother put the broom in the closet.
Five days later, Joey’s mother gets a knock on the door. She opens it to two ladies with ID tags around their neck and one police officer. They ask to come in, thinking she could quickly show them everything is fine and they would leave.
The house was clean but a little messy as houses get messy with a three year old and a newborn baby. She asks what this was about. One of the ladies walked around the house and another took Joey into his room, closed the door and interrogated him as to sexual abuse. Joey’s mother objected but the police officer told her she had to let them talk to Joey privately. Joey did not comprehend the nature of the questions and kept shaking his head and shrugging his shoulders. He barely said two words which were the names of their dogs, Mary and Jane, from the nursery rhyme, “Mary Had A Little Lamb” and Jane from the children’s book, Dick and Jane.
The two ladies called their supervisor and told her that Joey indicated that the mother smokes marijuana and that the child may be at risk. Joey’s mother blurted out when she overheard that. Then the ladies were conversing about the mother being delusional and in denial. They were told to drug test the mother with an on-site mouth swab. Joey’s mother complied. After a few moments one of the ladies took the swab from the mother and placed it into a little thin cup. The two ladies eyebrows went up and they began to tell the police officer that they would be removing both children. More phone calls were made to their supervisor and to foster homes. They could not find one close that could accommodate the newborn and Joey and discussed what to do when the Judge asks why the children were not placed together or with family. They opted to keep the children together however, the foster home was 50 miles away.
Joey’s mother is frantic at this point. How could things go so wrong? She does not smoke pot so the test must be wrong. She denies any drug use so they say her kids are at risk of neglect because she won’t acknowledge her “problem”, even Joey told them about “Maryjane”. They tell her to go to court in two days. Joey is crying as they pick him up and put him in their county vehicle. They have to literally rip the newborn from Joey’s mother’s arms and now she is screaming. The police officer tells her to calm down or he will have to take her in on a 5150 charge. Joey screams from the car, “Mommy, don’t let them take me, Mommy, me stay with you!”
There have been parents who experienced something similar and NEVER SAW THEIR CHILDREN AGAIN! TELL ME THIS IS NOT KIDNAPPING!
This is how it happens. First, they come to the door FIVE DAYS after the original incident that the social workers never even mentioned. They come to the door and knock meaning they had no reasonable cause to even come to the door in the first place. They bring the police as an intimidation tactic, he is mostly there to protect the social workers. Joey’s mother should have never let them in. NO WARRANT NO ENTRY. Then they talk to Joey about sexual abuse, that in and of itself is sexual abuse. Then they make her take a mouth swab drug test which are NOT ADMISSIBLE IN COURT and are often WRONG. The only test that is admissible as evidence is a lab confirmed test. Joey’s mother should have refused and offered to go to a collection site for laboratory urine testing however, she did not have to take any test. Then, in the social worker’s report it will claim that they provided REASONABLE EFFORTS to keep the children in the home and obviously that will be a lie. Reasonable efforts is the key to their funding and they never try to keep the family together so they receiving federal funding fraudulently.
