RE:     [Name(s) of child(ren)

          DSS No.: __________

 

 

Dear Mr. Browning,

           I am sure you are a reasonable man and truly care for the people in your County and strive to achieve for the most courteous and professional delivery of health and human services possible.  I feel it is my duty, as a resident and citizen of the County of Los Angeles, to bring to your attention the very shameful actions of those who serve under your authority.  I am specifically referring to those social workers, in the Santa Clarita office, who have been assigned to my case, past and presently, with emphasis on social worker, Ramaul Rush.  Ramaul is unprofessional, lacks empathy, has committed perjury, and filed falsified documents with the Court.  This entire investigation is based on a repetitive referral that began over two years ago, that has been investigated by two counties, Riverside and Los Angeles, including an LAPD officer, at least four times and deemed each time to be unfounded

           My main concern is the health and safety of my five children who have all been separated from each other.  I believe this has been done on purpose as with everything else that is happening to my family simply because I am outspoken and somewhat of an advocate when it comes to Child Protective Services and the horrifying actions they often needlessly perpetrate upon children and their families.  My concern right now is the children’s placement and living conditions.  As I can understand that there are so many children in foster care and may be difficult to place five children together, I still object to this separation.  My children have the right to familial association.  My children are very close to one another but not so much as to be so dependent upon one another that their health is impaired.  Nonetheless, the separation takes it toll on their emotional well-being.  Child Protective Services is supposed to be about the children and right now the Department is performing a disservice to my children.  This will affect them for the rest of their lives; their education will suffer and therefore so will their future.  I ask you, sincerely Sir, please intervene, and assist the social workers by whatever means possible to re-establish placement for all five children. There is an approved foster home in Riverside County willing to take them in immediately.  I have attached the pertinent details for your convenience.

           Regarding the children’s current placement concerns, my oldest son, _______, is experiencing severe emotional distress.  When he was first placed in foster care, I had spoken with him on the phone, but I have not seen him since September 22nd, the day the Department confiscated all five of my children.  But now something is wrong, something has changed as the foster parents claim that he does not want to speak to me or visit with me.  I have attached copies of emails advising me that our visits have been canceled allegedly due to Anthony refusing to visit.  This causes me great concern as _______ and I have a good relationship.  I would like to know if he is being given any type of psychotropic medication.  I am sure I do not have to remind you that the Department is required to file a request for authorization to administer psychotropic medication to children with notice to the parents/guardians for an opportunity to object.  I believe _______ may be withdrawing from socializing and is internalizing his distress.  This is not healthy for a boy his age.  I respectfully request that he be placed in an environment that better fits his needs and together with his siblings.

           My daughter, _______, whom I have not abused in any way whatsoever, told me during a visit that she has to take some kind of liquid medicine and I do not know what it is because no one will tell me.  I have the right to know, in fact, if she is being given psychotropic medication I should be advised.  Again, I do not have to remind you of the procedures involved in giving children psychotropic medication.  Even if she is taking Tylenol, I want to know why she has to take it every day.  This poor child has been subjected to TWO vaginal/anal examinations within a matter of a few days!  Again, I have not sexually or by any other means, abused this little girl!  She has never been touched or probed until the Department exposed her to it!  This is a violation of her body and mind.  It is so shameful that the people who claim they care and are paid to protect are actually the real perpetrators.  I do visit with _______ but she is not the same, she is obviously distressed and scared.  She was not scared in my care.  _______ appears extremely traumatized by everything she has been forced to endure.  As her parent and guardian, it is my responsibility to console her and help her to understand the nature of what is happening to our family.  The visit supervisor demanded that I discontinue any discussion with the child and further claimed that I was “interrogating” ________.  This child is clearly suffering from separation anxiety, depression, and severe emotional detachment as she is alone without her familial siblings.  This is a violation of her Fourth Amendment Rights.  I am demanding that ________ be placed in a proper home, with her siblings, immediately.

           I am also very concerned about the baby, ______.  She is barely 14 months old and we are the only parents she has ever known.  She has been sick and she never got sick in my care.  I was very concerned when I met the foster family as one child had a clear and distinct red mark on their face, clearly due to a fierce smack of a whole hand.  The baby also had a severe diaper rash along with the rash from the Rosella she allegedly had.  _________ was also very fussy however; she seemed to relax in the comfort of my wife and me.  I demand that ________ be moved to a better home with a higher standard of care and with her siblings.

         _______ and _______ are currently placed together.  ________ has voiced his distress as he is not happy at all with the living conditions he is being forced to endure.  _________ states that he is put in his room constantly as punishment and for an indeterminate time.  Sometimes two hours, sometimes four hours.  He is not told how long, just that he is confined to his room and they will let him know when he can come out.  He states that he is being punished for unwanted behaviors such as sitting on the couch while wearing shoes, or laying down anyplace other than his bed.  That means he cannot lay on the couch or the carpeted floor at any time.  ________ revealed to me that one night, during dinner, he was deprived of the rest of his meal, for speaking while sitting at the table, and sent to his room.  This is unreasonable and not the type of discipline that I condone.  To add insult to injury, ________ states that he is not allowed to play outside at all.  _________ states that he is confined to inside the house once he arrives from school for the rest of the day only to be subjected to constant verbal abuse by an adult living in the home.  This adult is using foul, demeaning words.  This is inappropriate and unacceptable.  Additionally, _________ needs new shoes.  I had saved money last month because I planned on purchasing new sneakers for him this month but then he was removed along with his four brothers and sisters.  _________’s white shirts are being washed the kitchen sink and coming out all dingy.  __________ takes pride in his appearance and the caregiver who is washing his clothes is not taking care with his laundry.  I have always been so very proud of __________ as he has an engaging personality and a good heart.  His current environment is extremely detrimental to his health and well being.  Moreover, my last scheduled visit was abruptly canceled before it even began.  I am attaching copies of the emails regarding that issue.  I am demanding that the Department find proper living arrangements, with his siblings, immediately.

           I have many more complaints about the way the Department has handled allegations that are over two years old and proven unfounded at least four times.  Now Ramaul Rush and his cohorts have made up allegations that are extremely disturbing to me.  I say this because I know I didn’t do anything they are claiming so someone is quite sick in the head if you ask me.  The Department should really weed out these bad seeds because they make the entire agency appear like misfits.  I don’t know a single person who trusts LA DCFS.  Why can’t anyone in the Department show diligence and strive to achieve the basic standards of care?  Does anyone there realize that removing children from loving homes is not right?  I don’t see anyone in the Department looking out for any child’s best interests, only the Department’s best interests.  Mr. Browning, Sir, with all due respect, maybe you should look into this.

 

          I throw myself at your mercy; please help me with placing my children together.  I am getting nowhere with Ramaul or any other worker assigned to my case.  Ramaul does not return my phone calls or emails.  I am enclosing copies of my unanswered correspondence.  I am also enclosing information regarding the approved foster home that is welcoming all of my children.  Please communicate with the Supervisors of the Santa Clarita office as they need some direction and to review the policies that are established to provide quality standards of practice and service delivery.  Made up allegations, falsified documents and perjury do not qualify as a standard of care.  I think I understand what the Department means when they say Evidence Based Practice which really means Falsified Evidence Based Practice. 

           I thank you, in advance, and sincerely appreciate your assistance.

                                                   Sincerely,

 

                                                  [Your Name]

DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER


WHY is it that the ONLY people who say that we are DANGEROUS are those who STOLE OUR CHILD? EVERYONE ELSE, including most of the Deputies that supervised our incarceration, knows that claim is absolutely ABSURD, ridiculous, crazy, ludacris  false, and complete defamation of our character. We are not the bad guys, we do not arbitrarily steal thousands and thousands of children each year.

Now THIS is dangerous!

Landing a plane here must be dangerous.


Living under a volcano is dangerous.Living under a volcano is dangerous.

This road is dangerous.This road is dangerous.

THE RESCUING of OUR OWN SON IN AND OF ITSELF DOES NOT CONSTITUTE “DANGEROUS” BEHAVIOR. HE WAS NOT LEGALLY A “DEPENDENT” OF THE COURT, IF HE HAD BEEN THEN I BELIEVE THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN A SIGNED AND SEALED ORDER OF THE COURT AND NONE EXISTED.

 WE DID NOT FIGHT OUR “CHILD STEALING” CHARGES BECAUSE IT WOULD HAVE TAKEN LONGER THAN THE TIME WE HAD BEFORE THE TERMINATION OF OUR PARENTAL RIGHTS. What would you choose? Take a deal and get out of jail so you can still fight for your child OR stay in jail for a year or more with NO chance of reunification? Our attorneys traded us off anyway. The DA was obviously a friend of the dependency judge by her appearance at our JV hearing. Our Judge just happened to be very active in the Family Preservation Court which exists solely for CPS cases. We probably would have had better luck of winning the lottery without buying a ticket.

I AM SURE THAT we can gather up at least 30,000 Riverside County citizens, who pic_rallyhave been railroaded by the pathological liars who work at Child Protective Services and their collaborative partners, the Juvenile Dependency court cohorts, who would testify to the abuses of CPS and their systematic destruction of families. I would say THAT would be dangerous to their dirty little secret.  .

CPS JUDGE WANTS TO TAKE AWAY RIGHT TO WRITE, IT IS ALL I HAVE LEFT


CREDIT WAS GIVEN TO SOMEONE ELSE FOR THE CONTENTS OF DONNELLYJUSTICE. STILL THEY WERE ASKED TO STOP EXPRESSING THEIR (OUR) RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH ABOUT WHAT THAT COURT IS DOING TO THEIR FAMILY.

AS FOR ME AND MY WIFE, THAT SAME COURT AND JUDGE STOLE OUR SON AND ADOPTED HIM OUT.  THIS IS THE ONLY PERSONAL PROTECTION WE HAVE AGAINST THE CORRUPTION AND THE KIDNAPPING BY CPS, JUDGES AND ATTORNEYS. I WILL SEE THIS JUDGE OFF THE BENCH.

Maybe after he retires but I will still see him off the bench. My wife is just wonderful at finding case-law that sets a precedent. Her dedication to fighting for her son is different from mine and that is what makes me so proud of her. We have had so many people telling us thank you for giving them the information so desperately needed helping to beat their CPS cases in every state except California. There is a complete disregard for law in this state and  especially in this county (Riverside)   What these court cohorts just don’t seem to get in their heads is, I cannot be intimidated- ever.  I can even face the threat of losing my life, this is too important and you corrupt people in bed with CPS have stolen my son.  So now you go ahead and do whatever you have to do because in the end, I am still proud of who I am and who my wife is as well.  We are making a stand for FAMILIES IN THE NAME OF OUR SON DONNELLY THE ONE YOU GAVE UP FOR ADOPTION because we stood up to your bias, unfair and CORRUPT system. You are doing it to honest and decent parents, why?  I did not take children and sell them for government funding ever. But what I have done and will keep doing is continue to get your funding removed by being completely honest about your court practices to the OIG and other agencies, until my son comes home.

Everyday I am on this planet is a blessing from God and I do feel truly blessed to have such wonderful children (6 of them, but CPS only stole 1 of them. I was capable of raising 5 others to adulthood without ANY major injuries or hospitalizations, my children are capable, working adults, productive members of society. Isn’t that the GOAL of raising children? How the hell can I have raised them to be who and what they are now if I was abusive or put them “at risk”?) The lord has given and he has taketh away. I should have so much to be happy for. I expect nothing and I cherish everyday he allows me to continue to fight for children and parents.  Threatening me will do no good. The mistake that was already made was not killing me after kidnapping my child.

Suggesting that it is expected that site be taken down, you should make sure that you have the RIGHT person this time. Now ask me again to take my site down.  Do you really think I will?  The last time I was told to take a blog down I created 4 more sites. The data my wife is collecting about CPS, DCFS, (and every other acronym out there), social workers’, attorneys’ and judges’  history of crimes, failures and lawsuits is growing and has already grown so large we may need volunteers to help us. The motivation of parents that have had their children kidnapped by CPS is either completely give up and become a lump of emotional coal or it motivates them to become absolutely obsessed with exposing, indicting, describing, yelling, screaming, informing, litigating every single thing that was wrongfully done to them. My wife and I, obviously, are not lumps of coal.

The sacrifice parents make raising a child and the personal investment could never have a dollar amount value placed on it.. This is an investment of the heart and life over time and any parent who enjoys being a parent as we do, so very much so, can’t ever let that go. Anyone who knows my wife and I,  know without any doubt how much we care about and love our son Donnelly as well as our other children, Our children give us meaning and purpose. Our friends see how much we hurt and know we will never give up. They see our obsession, its all we talk about, my wife is always aware that we may be annoying and tries to be considerate by talking about other things once in a while but the conversation always ends up back on the subject. Many people express that if CPS tried to take away their kid that it would be over their dead body. We felt that way too however, when you are put in a position where they have lied to the police so they take your child at GUNPOINT,  your “dead body” becomes literal. People have no idea how truly corrupt these judges are and the dollar is all they care about. These Judges honestly do not care about the children in their community or anything that happens to them. In our case, CPS and the court cohorts went way out of their way to terminate our rights and prevent our family from getting custody, or even ever being able to see or speak to him, then DID NOT TAKE THE MOST SIMPLE PRECAUTIONS TO ENSURE THAT THE ADOPTIVE PARENT’S INFORMATION BE KEPT CONFIDENTIAL. So, once they were assured the AFSA, CAPTA and other funds, they cared no more. These Judges know children get abused, killed or neglected all the time in CPS care and even by the adoptive parents. A babysitter will never care for a child the same as biological parents. Don’t misunderstand me, there are parents who are neglectful or abusive but there are far less of them than they try to fool the public into believing but everyone I know agrees they would not want CPS in their home ever, our children are more important than anything. Just this statement alone says so much about our lives. The devastation CPS leaves in their wake is truly more than a parent should endure. Without our friends and family we don’t think we could have made it. The cruelty in which CPS when they relentlessly fabricate stories about many parents is overwhelming. When you experience it for yourself you find that this has been going on for decades yet still swept under the rug.

CPS generates money and is shared with other county departments via the general fund so they are supported by the police, the Board of Supervisors and other county officials. CPS uses the same tactics with every family as I have learned by interviewing people on the courthouse steps but since the police depend on the money from the general fund, they will not do anything about the criminal behavior of social workers. The amount of money the Judge gets for each child varies in each county with Riverside being the most secretive which is why the audit is taking a while. Anyone who has any evidence of the falsification of evidence and perjury must contact the Office of the Inspector General, who oversees social security funding (Title IV-E), and hold them accountable for auditing Riverside County or any county in the US. All you need to do is compare the transcript to the minute orders, attach your evidence of their forgery and perjury, and send it to them. The link was right there. COUNTIES WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY BACK THE IV FUNDS. I am sure that this will be greatly appreciated by the Directors since the quality of children’s lives are PARAMOUNT right? I couldn’t have felt good sleeping at night without helping the Riverside DPSS/CPS Director, Susan Loew, who began working for CPS in 1999 in the FINANCES & SERVICES department, by ensuring that every dime be accounted for and used for the needs of children. That is the objective right Ms. Loew? I feel bad for not helping sooner with, you know, First 5 auditing, I know how much heat you have taken about that mismanagement and being reprimanded by the Grand Jury and all.

This country can’t survive much more of this corrupt government.  I will continue to do everything I can no matter what . If anything happens to me to change what I do, it isn’t me. God Bless everyone and keep up the pressure. William R. Burns for http://www.donnellyjustice.me

We will never just walk away from our son, this is our decision, we did nothing wrong.


I truly wish Riverside County would get a judge of moral fiber with family values, if this doesn’t happen soon than any parent who goes before a CPS is getting a sentence far worse than death.  I have such a hard time believing the world is this evil. Separating  family is such a cruel thing to do that I can not follow any decision by these corrupt unmoral criminals who would sell another persons children.  This punishment no person deserves and I will do what ever the lord has planed for me. Bless these people for they know not what they do. We love you Donnelly.

Donnelly is our baby boy and any parent who feels the way we do about our  children is a wonderful parent.  No judge could ever take that from us.  We are gentle, loving parents and we will face the terrorism  of Child Protective Services to our deaths.  There is no reason on Gods green earth why we can not see our son.  The lies of these social workers who have stolen our child will come out.  Any person who does the things that have been done to us to steal our child is not a person of decency or moral fiber and should be in prison.  I have no reason to hide my head in shame because I know who I am, and I wouldn’t want to be anyone else.   I like who I am, I know CPS social worker Antione Coley doesn’t like who he is, this man has lied to everyone to take my son.

My children are my life and no man shall take that away,  God bless the parents who keep on going even after CPS has stolen their child.. We will see you again Donnelly love Dad.
