Should You Talk to CPS?


NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. NO. Did everyone get that? NO!!!  DO NOT SPEAK TO CPS IF YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE A “CASE”. THEY HAVE NO POWER UNTIL YOU GIVE IT TO THEM. Even if you think you have done nothing wrong and speak to them to “clear up any misunderstandings” THAT WILL BE THE MISTAKE and you WILL BE PUTTING YOUR CHILDREN AT RISK OF IMMINENT HARM. You DO NOT HAVE TO SPEAK TO THEM, BY LAW. Exercise your 4th Amendment RIGHT, CPS is not out to respect it, in fact, they laugh when you are intimidated and think that you HAVE to speak to them or let them in your home. You don’t have to be rude, in fact, kill them with kindness. Tell them how sweet they are for caring so much about your child but that neither you nor your child need their services and to have a nice day. Tell your children to NEVER EVER speak to a CPS worker at school. Make sure that you draft a NON-AUTHORIZATION prohibiting CPS from being able to speak to your child at school. GEt it NOTARIZED and give copies to the school, one to the office clerk, one to your child’s counselor and one to the Principal. Make them sign a Receipt of Non-Authorization so you have proof that they know about it. 

Once again, if CPS wants to talk to you, do not open your door, talk to them through the window or crack open the doorImage and give them a note telling them that you are not aware of any criminal investigations so they have no reasonable cause to be there. Tell them if any criminal charges are filed to let your attorney know immediately and give the CPS workers the name of the most prestigious criminal attorney in your area.  When they leave, go ahead and give that guy (or woman) a call and see if they give free consultations over the phone. Most attorneys do. Just tell them that CPS came to your door and you told them that you don’t speak to social workers and if any criminal charges are filed that you told CPS to contact him (attorney). Most likely, if you have not abused your child, they will send you a letter in about a week or so letting you know that they closed their investigation. Hopefully, you have those Non-Authorizations at the school and have educated your children to not speak to social workers, or the school nurse, teacher, counselor, or even the principal IF THEY are asking questions about home OR YOU or anything that could be misrepresented against your

 

 

family.

CPS appears to be reasonable and normal. However, do not be fooled, this is their way of keeping up the illusion that they are “public servants”. Some people they encounter must still believe that they do good. Another trick they use is the one where a home is clearly a hazard yet they leave the children there. You’ve seen plenty of those cases, CPS is constantly being sued for “failing to act” despite receiving numerous prior referrals, and a child dies because they didn’t remove them. THIS is so they can claim that they are still “needed in the community because so many children are dying at the hands of parents!”  Someone I know has known a social worker for a long time who was aware of an incident where that worker was told to place 3 children back into a home known for manufacturing methamphetamine. The worker was distraught about doing this but she felt that she had to even though the Department knew something was going to happen to those children. She returned the children on Friday and they were all dead by Monday morning. That case received a lot of attention and the Department was able to use it to get more funding. Coincidence? Me thinks not. These are very wicked people pretending to be saviors. 

And I’M THE BAD GUY. SAY GOODNIGHT TO THE BAD GUY.

PROOF THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO SIGN THE CASE PLAN


In California: According to CPS’s Manual of Policies and Procedures you do not have to sign the case plan in order to receive services. All it does is contractually bind you to it,

No Signature Required for Case Plan

 CPS/JUVENILE DEPENDENCY COURT IS CIVIL. NOT CRIMINAL AND NOT FAMILY LAW. The rules of evidence are the same as in Civil Court and disobeying an “order” is merely a contempt of court issue.

I got this clip from CA Policy Revision Update which clearly states the Department’s PRIORITIES AND VALUES. IS it just me or is it obvious that the welfare of children is not their main concern?

CPS's 'STATED VALUES

SAFETY:

OF WHO? THE SOCIAL WORKERS!

TIMELY PERMANENCY:

SO THEY CAN GET THE ADOPTION INCENTIVE MONEY SOONER

REDUCING RELIANCE ON OUT-OF-HOME-CARE:

AGAIN, THIS IS PART OF ‘PERMANENCY’ AS THEY GET MORE FUNDING FROM ADOPTIONS THAN FOR FOSTER CARE

REDUCING THE RISK OF ABUSE AND NEGLECT IN OUT-OF-HOME CARE:

WHY IS THIS EVEN AN ISSUE IF THE FOSTER HOMES ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE PARENT’S HOME THAT THEY EVEN PLACE THEM THERE TO BEGIN WITH? “OK. LET’S TAKE THIS KID FROM THESE PARENTS BECAUSE FOSTER CARE IS SO PERFECT AND THE FOSTER PARENTS ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAT WE NEVER EVEN HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT CHILDREN GETTING HURT THERE”

OBVIOUSLY THERE IS AT LEAST ENOUGH ABUSE IN FOSTER CARE TO MAKE THIS  PRIORITY RIGHT????

CHILD  WELL-BEING:

THIS IS LISTED LAST, ALMOST LIKE SOMEONE ALMOST FORGOT TO WRITE IT! DOES THIS NOT SHOW THAT THEY REALLY DON’T CARE ABOUT KIDS? I FIND SO MANY THINGS LIKE THIS. I AM PUTTING TOGETHER A COLLECTION OF THEM.

Abuse in out of home care

Coming Soon to a Blog near you: CPS “PRIORS” THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE UGLY. Lawsuits against CPS, social workers gone worse, foster parents who are criminally charged for abuse and murder, CPS’s failures and Judges gone wild.

So many people have the same response, “Nooo, they wouldn’t do THAT, in today’s day and age people just don’t do that!” Yet, these same people believe that there are 250,000 children being “abused and neglected” each year just in California. That’s 25 Million per decade. “Abused” children tend to abuse their children when they become adults, according to the child welfare industry, so the likelyhood that it would become a cycle is at least 75%. Now if one was easily convinced that this was fact, that ALL OF THESE CHILDREN WERE TRULY ABUSED BY THEIR PARENTS IN THEIR OWN HOME, what in the world prohibits their ability to believe that THE GOVERNMENT IS ABUSING CHILDREN AND DESTROYING FAMILIES FOR FEDERAL FUNDING??? The government is run by PEOPLE. People just like the parents they are taking children from. DO THESE PEOPLE believe that the PEOPLE in government do things RIGHT and can do a better job raising children than the parents? Pretty soon no one is going to be raised by their biological parents, children are just shuffled around into homes that could be far more dangerous than the one they were taken out of.  Everyone who has anything to do with it from case workers to psychiatrists and drug counselors to court personnel, these “stakeholders” rely on the removal of children for their paycheck.These people don’t realize how much money is involved here. California alone got 25 BILLION last year. 25 BILLION DOLLARS TO REMOVE CHILDREN, PUT THEM IN FOSTER CARE FOR 12-18 MONTHS WHILE THEY PAID FOR “PROGRAMS AND SERVICES” (HOOPS THE PARENTS HAVE TO JUMP THROUGH). So, DPSS receives and they give out to all of those stakeholders and when they quickly terminate parental rights and push through an illegal adoption they get “incentives” which are bonuses. A portion of that bonus goes directly to the social worker and their supervisor in the form of a “Christmas Bonus” if their points are not taken away by the end of the year. Yes, they work on gold stars and points.That is why Antoine Coley and Amanda Spratley JUMPED UP FOR JOY, HUGGING AND CONGRATULATING EACH OTHER, SMILING AND DOING A HAPPY DANCE WHEN OUR RIGHTS WERE TERMINATED, WHILE THE REST OF US CRIED AND ANOTHER PERSON TRIED NOT TO SMILE BUT DID A HAPPY DANCE LATER ON. So, these people who supposedly ‘CARE’ so much about children had absolutely no feelings of sadness for the parents and siblings who lost their little boy. Heartless. And these are the people who are believed? Really?

Can I be any clearer? I just want to post something that these people will read and say,

“OH MY GOD!!! WHAT IS GOING ON???? WHY DIDN’T I SEE THIS BEFORE?”

From the time my husband and I wake up to the time we go to bed, we are constantly thinking of ways to explain, prove, and deliver this message. There have even been times when we are lying in bed, lights out, and we will start talking about it and come up with an idea that just can’t wait so we sit up, grab our laptops and start typing! We are dedicated to this fight, what else can we do? Without our son we feel so empty, my pregnancy and childbirth all for nothing, or for OTHER PEOPLE TO SELFISHLY ENJOY. Yes, I said selfish because not letting him see us is exactly that and I can’t wait to tell him how he was not allowed to see his Mommy and Daddy because of a pointless restraining order. Yes, I said pointless because a piece of paper is not what is stopping us from knocking on the door. It is decency and respect and not wanting to upset anyone.

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.

If you would like to inform me of such a situation, submit an original story of your own or correct a mistake of mine, please email me at Admin@EndtheLie.com
