Our Family Torn and Terrorized by CPS (Part 6)


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 Said I Was Sorry Would I Be Forgiven?


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.

Oh My FREAKING GOD!!!!! Evil SOCIAL WORKERS!!! This is total B.S.

Federal

U.S. federal laws that govern CPS agencies include:

History

In 1690, in what is now the United States, there were criminal court cases involving child abuse.[1] In 1692, states and municipalities identified care for abused and neglected children as the responsibility of local government and private institutions.[2]In 1696, The Kingdom of England first used the legal principle of parens patriae, which gave the royal crown care of “charities, infants, idiots, and lunatics returned to the chancery.” This principal of parens patriae has been identified as the statutory basis for U.S. governmental intervention in families’ child rearing practices.[3]

In 1825, states enacted laws giving social-welfare agencies the right to remove neglected children from their parents and from the streets. These children were placed in almshouses, in orphanages and with other families. In 1835, the Humane Society founded the National Federation of Child Rescue agencies to investigate child maltreatment. In the late-19th century, private child protection agencies – modeled after existing animal protection organizations – developed to investigate reports of child maltreatment, present cases in court and advocate for child welfare legislation.[4]

In 1853, the Children’s Aid Society was founded in response to the problem of orphaned or abandoned children living in New York.[5] Rather than allow these children to become institutionalized or continue to live on the streets, the children were placed in the first “foster” homes, typically with the intention of helping these families work their farms.[6][7]

In 1874, the first case of child abuse was criminally prosecuted in what has come to be known as the “case of Mary Ellen.” Outrage over this case started an organized effort against child maltreatment[8] In 1909, President Theodore Roosevelt convened the White House Conference on Child Dependency, which created a publicly funded volunteer organization to “establish and publicize standards of child care.”[6] By 1926, 18 states had some version of county child welfare boards whose purpose was to coordinate public and private child related work.[7] Issues of abuse and neglect were addressed in the Social Security Act in 1930, which provided funding for intervention for “neglected and dependent children in danger of becoming delinquent.” [8]

In 1912, the federal Children’s Bureau was established to manage federal child welfare efforts, including services related to child maltreatment. In 1958, amendments to the Social Security Act mandated that states fund child protection efforts.[9] In 1962, professional and media interest in child maltreatment was sparked by the publication of C. Henry Kempe and associates’ “The battered child syndrome” in JAMA. By the mid-1960s, in response to public concern that resulted from this article, 49 U.S. states passed child-abuse reporting laws.[10] In 1974, these efforts by the states culminated in the passage of the federal “Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act” (CAPTA; Public Law 93-247) providing federal funding for wide-ranging federal and state child-maltreatment research and services.[11] In 1980, Congress passed the first comprehensive federal child protective services act, the Adoption Assistance and Child Welfare Act of 1980 (Public Law 96-272), which focused on state economic incentives to substantially decrease the length and number of foster care placements.[12]

Partly funded by the federal government, Child Protective Services (CPS) agencies were first established in response to the 1974CAPTA which mandated that all states establish procedures to investigate suspected incidents of child maltreatment.[13]

In the 1940s and 1950s, due to improved technology in diagnostic radiology, the medical profession began to take notice of what they believed to be intentional injuries.[14] In 1961, C. Henry Kempe began to further research this issue, eventually identifying and coining the term battered child syndrome.[14] At this same time, there were also changing views about the role of the child in society, fueled in part by the civil rights movement.[7]

In 1973, Congress took the first steps toward enacting federal legislature to address the issue of child abuse. The Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act[15] was passed in 1974, which required states “to prevent, identify and treat child abuse and neglect.”[8]

Shortly thereafter, in 1978, the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) was passed in response to concerns that large numbers of Native American children were being separated from their tribes and placed in foster care.[16] This legislation not only opened the door for consideration of cultural issues while stressing ideas that children should be with their families, leading to the beginnings offamily preservation programs.[17] In 1980, the Adoption Assistance Act[18] was introduced as a way to manage the high numbers of children in placement.[7] Although this legislation addressed some of the complaints from earlier pieces of legislation around ensuring due process for parents, these changes did not alleviate the high numbers of children in placement or continuing delays in permanence.[17] This led to the introduction of the home visitation models, which provided funding to private agencies to provide intensive family preservation services.[7]

In addition to family preservation services, the focus of federal child welfare policy changed to try to address permanence for the large numbers of foster children care.[17] Several pieces of federal legislation attempted to ease the process of adoption including Adoption Assistance Act;[18] the 1988 Child Abuse Prevention, Adoption, and Family Services Act; and the 1992 Child Abuse, Domestic Violence, Adoption, and Family Services Act.[19] The 1994 Multi-Ethnic Placement Act, which was revised in 1996 to add the Interethnic Placement Provisions, also attempted to promote permanency through adoption, creating regulations that adoptions could not be delayed or denied due to issues of race, color, or national origin of the child or the adoptive parent.[20]

All of these policies led up to the 1997 Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA), much of which guides current practice. Changes in the Adoptions and Safe Families Act showed an interest in both protecting children’s safety and developing permanency.[20]This law requires counties to provide “reasonable efforts” (treatment) to preserve or reunify families, but also shortened time lines required for permanence, leading to termination of parental rights should these efforts fail.[7][20] ASFA introduced the idea of “concurrent planning” which demonstrated attempts to reunify families as the first plan, but to have a back-up plan so as not to delay permanency for children.[21]

Comparison to other similar systems

United Kingdom

The United Kingdom has a comprehensive child welfare system under which Local Authorities have duties and responsibilities towards children in need in their area. This covers provision of advice and services, accommodation and care of children who become uncared for, and also the capacity to initiate proceedings for the removal of children from their parents care/care proceedings. The criteria for the latter is ‘significant harm’ which covers physical, sexual and emotional abuse and neglect. In appropriate cases the Care Plan before the Court will be for adoption. The Local Authorities also run adoption services both for children put up for adoption voluntarily and those becoming available for adoption through Court proceedings. The basic legal principle in all public and private proceedings concerning children, under the Children Act 1989, is that the welfare of the child is paramount. In recognition of attachment issues, social work good practice requires a minimal number of moves and the 1989 Children Act enshrines the principle that delay is inimical to a child’s welfare. Care proceedings have a time frame of 40 weeks and concurrent planning is required. The final Care Plan put forward by the Local Authority is required to provide a plan for permanence, whether with parents, family members, long-term foster parents or adopters. Nevertheless, ‘drift’ and multiple placements still occur as many older children are difficult to place or maintain in placements. The role of Independent Visitor, a voluntary post, was created in the United Kingdom under the 1989 Children Act to befriend and assist children and young people in care.

In England, Wales and Scotland, there never has been a statutory obligation to report alleged child abuse to the Police. However both the Children Act 1989 and 2004 makes clear a statutory obligation on all professionals to report suspected child abuse.

The statutory guidance Working Together to Safeguard Children 2006 created the role of Local Authority Designated Officer, This officer is responsible for managing allegations of abuse against adults who work with children (Teachers, Social Workers,Church leaders, Youth Workers etc.).

Local Safeguarding Children Boards (LSCB’s) are responsible ensuring agencies and professionals,in their area,effectively safeguard and promote the welfare of children. In the event of the death or serious injury of a child, LSCB’s can initiate a ‘Serious Case Review’ aimed at identifying agency failings and improving future practice.

The planned ContactPoint database, under which information on children is shared between professionals, has been halted by the newly elected coalition government (May 2010). The database was aimed at improving information sharing across agencies. Lack of information sharing had been identified as a failing in numerous high profile child death cases. Critics of the scheme claimed it was evidence of a ‘big brother state’ and too expensive to introduce.

Working Together to Safeguard Children 2006 (updated in 2010) and the subsequent ‘The Protection of Children in England: A Progress Report’ (Laming, 2009) continue to promote the sharing of data between those working with vulnerable children.[22]

A child in suitable cases can be made a ward of court and no decisions about the child or changes in its life can be made without the leave of the High Court.

In England the Murder of Victoria Climbié was largely responsible for various changes in child protection in England, including the formation of the Every Child Matters programme in 2003. A similar programme – Getting it Right for Every Child – GIRFEC was established in Scotland in 2008.

Canada

In Ontario, services are provided by independent Children’s Aid Societies.[23] The societies receive funding from, and are under the supervision of the Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services.[24] However, they are regarded as a Non-governmental organization (NGO) which allows the CAS a large degree of autonomy from interference or direction in the day to day running of CAS by the Ministry. The Child and Family Services Review Board exists to investigate complaints against CAS and maintains authority to act against the societies.[25]

Costa Rica

The Patronato Nacional de la Infancia (PANI) is responsible for Child Protection in Costa Rica.[26]

The agency was founded in 1930 by Dr. Luis Felipe Gonzalez Flores, a Costa Rican magnate at the time. It was founded to combat infant mortality, that at the time, was rampant in Costa Rica. The idea was to put infants up for adoption that the mother could not afford to support (abortion is a crime in Costa Rica).[26]

In 1949, after the Costa Rican Civil War, a new constitution was written, it called for the agency to be an autonomous institution in the government, autonomous from any ministry.[26]

Today the focus is on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The agency still favors adoption, since abortion is illegal in Costa Rica.

Effects of early maltreatment on children in child welfare

Children with histories of maltreatment, such as physical and psychological neglect, physical abuse, and sexual abuse, are at risk of developing psychiatric problems.[27][28] Such children are at risk of developing a disorganized attachment.[29][30][31]Disorganized attachment is associated with a number of developmental problems, including dissociative symptoms,[32] as well as depressive, anxiety, and acting-out symptoms.[33][34]

Standards for Reporting

Generally speaking, a report must be made when an individual knows or has reasonable cause to believe or suspect that a child has been subjected to abuse or neglect. These standards guide mandatory reporters in deciding whether to make a report to child protective services.[35]

Persons Responsible for the Child

In addition to defining acts or omissions that constitute child abuse or neglect, several states’ statutes provide specific definitions of persons who can get reported to child protective services as perpetrators of abuse or neglect. These are persons who have some relationship or regular responsibility for the child. This generally includes parents, guardians, foster parents, relatives, or legal guardians. Once taken away from home, the stated goal of CPS is to reunite the child with their family. In some cases, due to the nature of abuse children are not able to see or converse with the abusers. If parents fail to complete Court Ordered terms and conditions, the children in care may never return home.[35]

Child Protective Services Statistics

The United States government’s Administration for Children and Families reported that in 2004 approximately 3.5 million children were involved in investigations of alleged abuse or neglect in the US, while an estimated 872,000 children were determined to have been abused or neglected, and an estimated 1,490 children died that year because of abuse or neglect. In 2007, 1,760 children died as the result of child abuse and neglect.[36] Child abuse impacts the most vulnerable populations, with children under age five years accounting for 76% of fatalities.[37] In 2008, 8.3 children per 1000 were victims of child abuse and neglect and 10.2 children per 1000 were in out of home placement.[38]

On September 30, 2010, there were approximately 400,000 children in foster care in the U.S. of which 36% percent were ages 5 and under. During that same period, almost 120,000 birth to five year-olds entered foster care and a little under 100,000 exited foster care.[39] U.S. Child Protective Services (CPS) received a little over 2.5 million reports of child maltreatment in 2009 of which 61.9% were assigned to an investigation.[40] Research using national data on recidivism indicates that 22% of children were rereported within a 2-year period and that 7% of these rereports were substantiated.[41]

Child Protective Services Recidivism in the United States

In order to understand CPS recidivism in the U.S., there are several terms that readers must familiarize themselves with. Two often-used terms in CPS recidivism are rereport (also known as rereferral) and recurrence. Either of the two can occur after an initial report of child abuse or neglect called an index report. Although the definition of rereport and recurrence is not consistent, the general difference is that a rereport is a subsequent report of child abuse or neglect after an initial report (also known as an index report) whereas recurrence refers to a confirmed (also known as substantiated) rereport after an initial report of child abuse and neglect. Borrowing from the definition used by Pecora et al. (2000),[42] recidivism is defined as, “Recurring child abuse and neglect, the subsequent or repeated maltreatment of a child after identification to public authorities.” It is important to highlight that this definition is not all-inclusive because it does not include abused children who are not reported to authorities.[42]

Recidivism Statistics

There are three main sources of recidivism data in the U.S.—the National Child Abuse and Neglect Data System (NCANDS), the National Survey of Child and Adolescent Well-Being (NSCAW), and the National Incidence Study (NIS)—and they all have their own respective strengths and weaknesses. NCANDS was established in 1974, and it consists of administrative data of all reports of suspected child abuse and neglect investigated by CPS. NSCAW was established in 1996 and is similar to NCANDS in that it only includes reports of child abuse and neglect investigated by CPS, but it adds clinical measures related to child and family well-being that NCANDS is lacking. NIS was established in 1974, and it consists of data collected from CPS as well. However, it attempts to gather a more comprehensive picture of the incidence of child abuse and neglect by collecting data from other reporting sources called community sentinels.[43]

Criticism

Brenda Scott, in her 1994 book Out of Control: Who’s Watching Our Child Protection Agencies, criticizes CPS, stating, “Child Protective Services is out of control. The system, as it operates today, should be scrapped. If children are to be protected in their homes and in the system, radical new guidelines must be adopted. At the core of the problem is the antifamily mindset of CPS. Removal is the first resort, not the last. With insufficient checks and balances, the system that was designed to protect children has become the greatest perpetrator of harm.”[44]

An ongoing case about the Nastić family living in U.S. has received an intervention from the Serbian government. Children were taken away from their parents after their naked photos were found on the father’s computer. Such photos are common in Serbia culture. Furthermore, parents claim that their ethnic and religious rights have been violated – children are not permitted to speak Serbian, nor to meet with their parents for orthodox Christmas. They can meet only mother once a week. Children have suffered psychological traumas due to their separation from parents. Polygraph showed that father did not abuse children. Trial is set for January 26. Psychologists from Serbia stated that few hours of conversation with children are enough to see whether they have been abused. Children were taken from their family 7 months ago. FBI started an investigation against the CPS.[45][46][47]

Senator Nancy Schaefer stated “The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect in 1998 reported that six times :as many children died in foster care than in the general public and that once removed to official “safety”, these children are far more likely to :suffer abuse, including sexual molestation than in the general population. Think what that number is today ten years later!”

The NCCAN report on “Perpetrators of Maltreatment”provides the following figures
Maltreatment per 100,000 US children CPS Parents
Physical Abuse 160 59
Sexual Abuse 112 13
Neglect 410 241
Medical Neglect 14 12
Fatalities 6.4 1.5

Senator Schaefer also stated

  • “that poor parents very often are targeted to lose their children because they do not have the where-with-all to hire lawyers and fight the system. Being poor does not mean you are not a good parent or that you do not love your child, or that your child should be removed and placed with strangers;
  • that all parents are capable of making mistakes and that making a mistake does not mean your children are to be removed from the home. Even if the home is not perfect, it is home; and that’s where a child is the safest and where he or she wants to be, with family;
  • that parenting classes, anger management classes, counseling referrals, therapy classes and on and on are demanded of parents with no compassion by the system even while the parents are at work and while their children are separated from them. (some times parents are required to pay for the programs) This can take months or even years and it emotionally devastates both children and parents. Parents are victimized by “the system” that makes a profit for holding children longer and “bonuses” for not returning children to their parents;
  • that caseworkers and social workers are very often guilty of fraud. They withhold and destroy evidence. They fabricate evidence and they seek to terminate parental rights unnecessarily. However, when charges are made against Child Protective Services, the charges are ignored;
  • that the separation of families and the “snatching of children” is growing as a business because local governments have grown accustomed to having these taxpayer dollars to balance their ever-expanding budgets;
  • that Child Protective Services and Juvenile Court can always hide behind a confidentiality clause in order to protect their decisions and keep the funds flowing. There should be open records and “court watches”! Look who is being paid!

There are state employees, lawyers, court investigators, guardian ad litems, court personnel, and judges. There are psychologists, and psychiatrists, counselors, caseworkers, therapists, foster parents, adoptive parents, and on and on. All are looking to the children in state custody to provide job security. Parents do not realize that the social workers are the glue that hold “the system” together that funds the court, funds the court appointed attorneys, and the multiple other jobs including the “system’s” psychiatrists, therapists, their own attorneys and others.

  • that The Adoption and the Safe Families Act, set in motion first in 1974 by Walter Mondale and later in 1997 by President Bill Clinton, offered cash “bonuses” to the states for every child they adopted out of foster care. In order to receive the “adoption incentive bonuses” local child protective services need more children. They must have merchandise (children) that sells and you must have plenty so the buyer can choose. Some counties are known to give a $4,000 to $6,000 bonus for each child adopted out to strangers and an additional $2,000 for a “special needs” child. Employees work to keep the federal dollars flowing;
  • State Departments of Human Resources (DHR) and affiliates are given a baseline number of expected adoptions based on population. For every child DHR and CPS can get adopted, there is the bonus of $4,000 or maybe $6,000. But that is only the beginning figure in the formula in which each bonus is multiplied by the percentage that the State has managed to exceed its baseline adoption number. Therefore States and local communities work hard to reach their goals for increased numbers of adoptions for children in foster care.
  • that there is double dipping. The funding continues as long as the child is out of the home. There is funding for foster care then when a child is placed with a new family, then “adoption bonus funds” are available. When a child is placed in a mental health facility and is on 16 drugs per day, like two children of a constituent of mine, more funds are involved and so is Medicaid;
  • As you can see this program is ordered from the very top and run by Health and Human Resources. This is why victims of CPS get no help from their legislators. It explains why my bill, SB 415 suffered such defeat in the Judicial Committee, why I was cut off at every juncture. Legislators and Governors must remember who funds their paychecks.
  • that there are no financial resources and no real drive to unite a family and help keep them together or provide effective care;
  • that the incentive for social workers to return children to their parents quickly after taking them has disappeared and who in protective services will step up to the plate and say, “This must end! No one, because they are all in the system together and a system with no leader and no clear policies will always fail the children. Just look at the waste in government that is forced upon the tax payer;
  • that the “Policy Manuel” is considered “the last word” for CPS/DFCS. However, it is too long, too confusing, poorly written and does not take the law into consideration;
  • that if the lives of children were improved by removing them from their homes, there might be a greater need for protective services, but today children are not safer. Children, of whom I am aware, have been raped and impregnated in foster care;
  • It is a known fact that children are in much more danger in foster care than they are in their own home even though home may not be perfect.
  • that some parents are even told if they want to see their children or grandchildren, they must divorce their spouse. Many, who are under privileged, feeling they have no option, will divorce and then just continue to live together. This is an anti-family policy, but parents will do anything to get their children home with them. However, when the parents cooperate with Child Protective Services, their behavior is interpreted as guilt when nothing could be further from the truth.
  • Fathers, (non-custodial parents) I must add, are often treated as criminals without access to visit or even see their own children and have child support payments strangling the very life out of them;
  • that the Foster Parents Bill of Rights does not stress that a foster parent is there temporarily to care for a child until the child can be returned home. Many foster parents today use the Foster Parent Bill of Rights as a means to hire a lawyer and seek to adopt the child placed in their care from the real parents, who are desperately trying to get their child home and out of the system. Recently in Atlanta, a young couple learning to be new parents and loving it, were told that because of an anonymous complaint, their daughter would be taken into custody by the State DFCS. The couple was devastated and then was required by DFCS to take parenting classes, alcohol counseling and psychological evaluations if they wanted to get their child back. All of the courses cost money for which most parents are required to pay. While in their anxiety and turmoil to get their child home, the baby was left for hours in a car to die in the heat in her car seat by a foster parent who forgot about the child. This should never have happened. It is tragic. In many cases after the parents have jumped through all the hoops, they still do not get their child. As long as the child is not returned, there is money for the agency, for foster parents, for adoptive parents, and for the State.
  • that tax dollars are being used to keep this gigantic system afloat, yet the victims, parents, grandparents, guardians and especially the children, are charged for the system’s services.
  • that grandparents have called from all over the State of Georgia and from other states trying to get custody of their grandchildren. CPS claims relatives are contacted, but there are many many cases that prove differently. Grandparents who lose their grandchildren to strangers have lost their own flesh and blood. The children lose their family heritage and grandparents, and parents too, lose all connections to their heirs.
  • that The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect in 1998 reported that six times as many children died in foster care than in the general public and that once removed to official “safety”, these children are far more likely to suffer abuse, including sexual molestation than in the general population. Think what that number is today ten years later!
  • That according to the California Little Hoover Commission Report in 2003, 30% to 70% of the children in California group homes do not belong there and should not have been removed from their homes.” [48]

Texas

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services had itself been an object of reports of unusual numbers of poisonings, death, rapes and pregnancies of children under its care since 2004. The Texas Family and Protective Services Crisis Management Team was created by executive order after the critical report Forgotten Children of 2004.

Texas Child Protective Services was hit with a rare if not unprecedented legal sanction for a “groundless cause of action” and ordered to pay $32,000 of the Spring family’s attorney fees. Judge Schneider wrote in a 13-page order, “The offensive conduct by (CPS) has significantly interfered with the legitimate exercise of the traditional core functions of this court.”[49]

2008 Raid of YFZ Ranch

Main article: YFZ Ranch

In April 2008, the largest child protection action in American history raised questions as the CPS in Texas removed hundreds of minor children, infants, and women incorrectly believed to be children from the YFZ Ranch polygamist community, with the assistance of heavily armed police with an armored personnel carrier. Investigators, including supervisor Angie Voss convinced a judge that all of the children were at risk of child abuse because they were all being groomed for under-age marriage. The state supreme court disagreed, releasing most children back to their families. Investigations would result in criminal charges against some men in the community.

Gene Grounds of Victim Relief Ministries commended CPS workers in the Texas operation as exhibiting compassion, professionalism and caring concern.[50] However, CPS performance was questioned by workers from the Hill Country Community Mental Health-Mental Retardation Center. One wrote “I have never seen women and children treated this poorly, not to mention their civil rights being disregarded in this manner” after assisting at the emergency shelter. Others who were previously forbidden to discuss conditions working with CPS later produced unsigned written reports expressed anger at the CPS traumatizing the children, and disregarding rights of mothers who appeared to be good parents of healthy, well-behaved children. CPS threatened some MHMR workers with arrest, and the entire mental health support was dismissed the second week due to being “too compassionate.” Workers believed poor sanitary conditions at the shelter allowed respiratory infections and chicken pox to spread.[51]

CPS problem reports

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, as with other states, had itself been an object of reports of unusual numbers of poisonings, death, rapes and pregnancies of children under its care since 2004. The Texas Family and Protective Services Crisis Management Team was created by executive order after the critical report Forgotten Children[52] of 2004. Texas Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn made a statement in 2006 about the Texas foster care system.[53] In Fiscal 2003, 2004 and 2005, respectively 30, 38 and 48 foster children died in the state’s care. The number of foster children in the state’s care increased 24 percent to 32,474 in Fiscal 2005, while the number of deaths increased 60 percent. Compared to the general population, a child is four times more likely to die in the Texas foster care system. In 2004, about 100 children were treated for poisoning from medications; 63 were treated for rape that occurred while under state care including four-year old twin boys, and 142 children gave birth, though others believe Ms. Strayhorn’s report was not scientifically researched, and that major reforms need to be put in place to assure that children in the conservatorship of the state get as much attention as those at risk in their homes.

Disproportionality & Disparity in the Child Welfare System

In the United States, data suggests that a disproportionate number of minority children, particularly African American and Native American children, enter the foster care system.[54] National data in the United States provides evidence that disproportionality may vary throughout the course of a child’s involvement with the child welfare system. Differing rates of disproportionality are seen at key decision points including the reporting of abuse, substantiation of abuse, and placement into foster care.[55] Additionally, once they enter foster care, research suggests that they are likely to remain in care longer.[56] Research has shown that there is no difference in the rate of abuse and neglect among minority populations when compared to Caucasian children that would account for the disparity.[57] The Juvenile Justice system has also been challenged by disproportionate negative contact of minority children.[58] Because of the overlap in these systems, it is likely that this phenomenon within multiple systems may be related.

Constitutional issues

In May 2007, the United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals found in Rogers v. County of San Joaquin, No. 05-16071[59] that a CPS social worker who removed children from their natural parents into foster care without obtaining judicial authorization was acting without due process and without exigency (emergency conditions) violated the 14th Amendment and Title 42 United State Code Section 1983. The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution says that a state may not make a law that abridges “… the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States” and no state may “deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” Title 42 United States Code Section 1983[60] states that citizens can sue in federal courts any person who acting under a color of law to deprive the citizens of their civil rights under the pretext of a regulation of a state, See.[61]

In case of Santosky v. Kramer, 455 US 745, Supreme Court reviewed a case when Department of Social Services removed two younger children from their natural parents only because the parents had been previously found negligent toward their oldest daughter.[62] When the third child was only three days old, DSS transferred him to a foster home on the ground that immediate removal was necessary to avoid imminent danger to his life or health. The Supreme Court vacated previous judgment and stated: “Before a State may sever completely and irrevocably the rights of parents in their natural child, due process requires that the State support its allegations by at least clear and convincing evidence. But until the State proves parental unfitness, the child and his parents share a vital interest in preventing erroneous termination of their natural relationship”.[62]

A District of Columbia Court of Appeals concluded that the lower trial court erred in rejecting the relative custodial arrangement selected by the natural mother who tried to preserve her relationship with the child.[63] The previous judgment granting the foster mother’s adoption petition was reversed, the case remanded to the trial court to vacate the orders granting adoption and denying custody, and to enter an order granting custody to the child’s relative.[63]

Notable lawsuits

In 2010 an ex-foster child was awarded $30 million by jury trial in California (Santa Clara County) for sexual abuse damages that happened to him in foster home from 1995 to 1999.[64][65] The foster parent, John Jackson, was licensed by state despite the fact that he abused his own wife and son, overdosed on drugs and was arrested for drunken driving. In 2006, Jackson was convicted in Santa Clara County of nine counts of lewd or lascivious acts on a child by force, violence, duress, menace and fear and seven counts of lewd or lascivious acts on a child under 14, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office.[64] The sex acts he forced the children in his foster care to perform sent him to prison for 220 years. Later in 2010, Giarretto Institute, the private foster family agency responsible for licensing and monitoring Jackson’s foster home and others, also was found to be negligent and liable for 75 percent of the abuse that was inflicted on the victim, and Jackson was liable for the rest.[64]

In 2009 Oregon Department of Human Services has agreed to pay $2 million into a fund for the future care of twins who were allegedly abused by their foster parents; it was the largest such settlement in the agency’s history.[66] According to the civil rightssuit filed on request of twins’ adoptive mother in December 2007 in U.S. Federal Court, kids were kept in makeshift cages—cribs covered with chicken wire secured by duct tape—in a darkened bedroom known as “the dungeon.” The brother and sister often went without food, water or human touch. The boy, who had a shunt put into his head at birth to drain fluid, didn’t receive medical attention, so when police rescued the twins he was nearly comatose. The same foster family previously took in their care hundreds of other children over nearly four decades.[67] DHS said the foster parents deceived child welfare workers during the checkup visits.[66]

Several lawsuits were brought in 2008 against the Florida Department of Children & Families (DCF), accusing it of mishandling reports that Thomas Ferrara, 79, a foster parent, was molesting girls.[68][69] The suits claimed that though there were records of sexual misconduct allegations against Ferrara in 1992, 1996, and 1999, the DCF continued to place foster children with Ferrara and his then-wife until 2000.[68] Ferrara was arrested in 2001 after a 9-year-old girl told detectives he regularly molested her over two years and threatened to hurt her mother if she told anyone. Records show that Ferrara had as many as 400 children go through his home during his 16 years as a licensed foster parent from 1984 to 2000.[68] Officials stated that the lawsuits over Ferrara end up costing the DCF almost $2.26 million.[69] Similarly, in 2007 Florida‘s DCF paid $1.2 million to settle a lawsuit that alleged DCF ignored complaints that another mentally challenged Immokalee girl was being raped by her foster father, Bonifacio Velazquez, until the 15-year-old gave birth to a child.[70][71][72]

In a class action lawsuit Charlie and Nadine H. v. McGreevey[73] was filed in federal court by “Children’s Rights” New York organization on behalf of children in the custody of the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS).[74][75] The complaint alleged violations of the children’s constitutional rights and their rights under Title IV-E of the Social Security Act, theChild Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, Early Periodic Screening Diagnosis and Treatment, 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, theAmericans with Disabilities Act, and the Multiethnic Placement Act (MEPA).[76] In July 2002, the federal court granted plaintiffs’ experts access to 500 children’s case files, allowing plaintiffs to collect information concerning harm to children in foster care through a case record review.[74] These files revealed numerous cases in which foster children were abused, and DYFS failed to take proper action. On June 9, 2004, the child welfare panel appointed by the parties approved the NJ State’s Reform Plan. The court accepted the plan on June 17, 2004.[75] The same organization filed similar lawsuits against other states in recent years that caused some of the states to start child welfare reforms.[77]

In 2007 Deanna Fogarty-Hardwick obtained a jury verdict against Orange County (California) and two of its social workers for violating her Fourteenth Amendment rights to familial association.[78] The $4.9 million verdict grew to a $9.5 million judgment as the County lost each of its successive appeals.[78] The case finally ended in 2011 when the United States Supreme Court denied Orange County’s request to overturn the verdict.[79]

California

In April 2013, Child Protective Services in Sacramento sent in police to forcibly remove a 5-month-old baby from the care of parents.

Alex and Anna Nikolayev took their baby Sammy out of Sutter Memorial Hospital and sought a second opinion at Kaiser Permanente, a competing hospital, for Sammy’s flu-like symptoms.[80] Police arrived at Kaiser and questioned the couple and doctors. Once Sammy had been fully cleared to leave the hospital, the couple went home, but the following day police arrived and took Sammy. On June 25, 2013 the case against the family was dismissed adn the family filed a lawsuit against CPS and the Sacramento Police Department.[81]

Effectiveness

In a nationwide study, researchers examined children in 595 families over a period of 9 years. They discovered that in the households where child abuse was substantiated by evidence, risk factors remained unchanged during interviews with the families.[82]

WARNING!!!!     WARNING!!!!!!!  

THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOUR CHILD!

IF CPS WANTS YOU TO SUBMIT TO A HAIR FOLLICLE TEST YOU MAY BE THEIR NEXT VICTIM! 

THIS IS WHY YOU MUST PAY FOR YOUR OWN HAIR FOLLICLE TEST THE SAME DAY YOU DO ONE FOR CPS. With the assistance of CDT, Inc. CPS will make your drug test positive if they want it to be. The following are links to my investigative Reports into these criminal activities by CPS and their court cohorts who collaborate to collect our kids for adoption incentive money from the federal government, thanks to ASFA (American Safe Families Act) and CAPTA

Senator Nancy Schaefer: SHE GAVE HER LIFE TO BRING YOU THIS MESSAGE PLEASE LISTEN


FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH: THE UNITED NATIONS FUNDING CPS TO TARGET ALL AMERICAN FAMILIES.

PLEASE DO NOT THINK IT’S A “CONSPIRACY THEORY”. KEEP AN OPEN MIND, TAKE WHAT I AM TELLING YOU TO HEART.

THE EVIDENCE IS THERE, YOU SHOULD BE VERY INTERESTED IN LOOKING SINCE YOU ARE AN AMERICAN AND MOST LIKELY YOU HAVE A FAMILY.

CHILDREN ARE BEING TARGETED BY CPS. LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE MESSAGE PLEASE. WE CAN NOT ALLOW THIS TO CONTINUE. DO NOT BELIEVE THAT ANYONE IN THE COURTROOM WILL HELP YOU IN FACT THEY ARE REALLY AGAINST YOU, EVEN YOUR ATTORNEY. THE JUDGE HAS NO FINANCIAL INTEREST IN YOUR RIGHTS, ALL HE CARES ABOUT IS COUNTY COUNSEL AND WHETHER OR NOT THE PARENT CALLS THE FBI OR NOT. ACT DON’T REACT. PLEASE!

A REAL JUDGE UPHOLDS THE LAW. A REAL JUDGE ENSURES THE PARTIES’ RIGHTS. A REAL JUDGE CARES ABOUT TRUTH, HONESTY, AND CORRECT APPLICATION OF THE LAWS. JUVENILE DEPENDENCY JUDGES, AT LEAST THE ONES I HAVE SEEN LIKE J.M. MONTEROSSO, HAVE BEEN BOUGHT BY CPS. WHEN EVERYONE FINALLY GETS IT, ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING, THESE JUDGES WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY AS MONSTERS.  THE CHILDREN THAT HE ALLOWS CPS TO TAKE THROUGH PERJURY AND FALSIFIED EVIDENCE, ARE  6 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO DIE IN CPS CARE THAN IF THEY WERE LEFT AT HOME. THESE JUDGES KNOW IT.  I HAVEN’T SEEN A HINT OF ETHICS OR GOOD CONSCIOUS SINCE HE HAS BEEN ON THE BENCH. TO ALLOW A CHILD TO BE TAKEN INTO AN ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THEY WILL BE HURT IS OUTRAGEOUS.

REMEMBER, IF CPS OR THE POLICE ARE KNOCKING ON YOUR DOOR, THEY DO NOT HAVE A WARRANT SO THEY HAVE NO REASONABLE CAUSE. DO NOT LET THEM IN. SINCE THEIR BUDGETS HAVE BEEN SEVERELY CUT, THEY ARE RELYING ON FOSTER CARE AND ADOPTION INCENTIVE GRANTS. THIS MEANS THAT THEIR ONE AND ONLY GOAL IS TO ADOPT OUT YOUR CHILD, TO STRANGERS ($$$), SO YOU MAY NEVER SEE YOUR CHILD AGAIN IF YOU OPEN UP THAT DOOR.

 

(ABC) Special Report IN THE BEST INTEREST OF CHILDREN BY CPS


This is the way CPS protects our children in all cases CPS workers only visit the child 1 time a month and in most cases they don’t even speak to the child only the foster care worker. CPS gets paid to take children out of their home and put them into a home that in many cases hasn’t even been approved for placement like in my case.

Am I Dangerous?


I still believe in our right to assemble to peacefully protest acts we feel are unjust. It seems that this right has been revoked. So many Americans refuse to believe things that are happening right in front of their faces and appear to be in complete denial, lost in a state of “normalcy bias”. If this is you just go back to sleep because you have some sort of justification for losing your Constitutional Rights and your freedom.

I PROTESTED THE KIDNAPPING OF MY CHILD BY SOCIAL SERVICES AND THE JUVENILE PROCEEDINGS THEY CALL DEPENDENCY “COURT” and I was labeled “DANGEROUS”. Have I ever been a threat to anyone, especially my OWN CHILD? NO. CPS painted a poor portrait of me and Rushton and Monterosso embellished that painting and illuminating it with theatrical lighting! They did this so they could get away with STEALING MY SON! 

CPS also gave falsified statements that I assaulted a foster care mother, even though the entire scene in question was all on video showing the foster care mom placing my son into my car during a casual conversation. CPS social worker Antoine Coley gave a false police report stating I kidnapped my own child somehow mysteriously the video disappeared.

HERE, I WILL PAINT A MORE REALISTIC PICTURE:

If CPS shows up at your door with or without the police, WITHOUT A WARRANT, claiming that they only want to “talk” to you, then come up with accusations that are absolutely ridiculous then because you refuse to cooperate they seize your child then hold him hostage making your child suffer the separation and stuck in some strange home with strangers while they beat you down with unnecessary programs they call “services”  only to say you haven’t progressed in their “case plan” because you have not completed a class because they waited to provide you with te proper referral just so they can claim you are not progressing all the while threatening that you will lose your parental rights. On top of that your child has unexplained bruises and rashes and as your visit with him is ending he is pleading with you to take him home! CAN YOU JUST IMAGINE THAT PLEASE? CLOSE YOUR EYES AND PICTURE IT. NOW WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU KNEW FOR A FACT THAT THE INTENTION OF CPS WAS NOT GIVE HIM BACK TO YOU EVER!!??

 2, Do you just sit back and take it, just let them do this to you? Do you just say, “Oh well, there is nothing I can do to save my son, they want him bad but I will just do what they say and hope for a miracle?” There are NO “miracles” with CPS, there are not enough prayers, not enough kissing of ass you can do if they are set on the adoption incentive funds. 

From the beginning, CPS had no other evidence or witness testimony other than what they falsified and straight up lied about all the while KNOWING we were innocent and good parents.  For added special effects they used another man’s criminal record and said it was mine.

So I rescued him after a visit. It was quite peaceful and non-threatening. But my wife and I were apprehended and jailed for just long enough to give our son away to strangers.

The people who believe our government has the right to take a child from a parent are under a spell or something. Do you trust the government in general? Do they always do the right thing? Are they competent and well organized and have a spotless record of perfection? I see the government screwing up everything they take control of.

For once in your life wake up and just look at the facts. But you will probably just sit back down and wait until someone dear to you disappears and then it will be too late for action. I promise you if it can happen to me it will happen to you or someone you know, it is only time.

 Protect you and yours because no one else will. This is the world in which we now live here in the U.S.

HERE IS THE EVIDENCE WHY CPS SHOULD RETURN YOUR CHILDREN IMMEDIATELY.


donnellyjustice  writes:I

I have no illusions that CPS will just give up committing crimes against children, but this tells the court that you are not an idiot and you know perfectly well what CPS and the JV court Judges are doing.  They are guilty of the most OUTRAGEOUS crimes harming children.

Be on your game and have a number of relatives/witnesses with you when you appear in JV court. Make sure that the Court is aware that they are there to testify for the child’s best interests. That is their golden word.  Below is evidence and investigation reports which any reasonable person would find overwhelming yet do not expect this court to be reasonable. Be at your best, be firm, do not be pushed around, know your rights, and most of all, know that your attorney is not looking out for you. If you live in California, find our link to the Dependency Quick Guide, this will tell you what your attorney is supposed to do. If you can not it, email me and I will send you a direct link. In Court, be intelligent,  be respectful to the Judge, listen carefully and object to anything said on record that is not correct no matter how little or insignificant. The county’s attorney will be vicious (she would literally cut your throat if she could). Your child’s attorney is a terrible actor pretending to look out for your child’s “best interests” but really they are best friends with county counsel. Remember, these people work together everyday for the same goal (the best interests of the state). So OBJECT yourself if your attorney doesn’t. IF YOU EVER WANT ANY CHANCE IN APPELLATE COURT YOU MUST GET OBJECTIONS TO EVERYTHING THAT IS UNREASONABLE AND FALSE ON THE RECORD. OPEN YOUR MOUTH EVEN IF ITS SCARY AND IT CAN BE VERY INTIMIDATING. They count on that.

This is your only time to get the truth on record, and your time to shine for your family, I can’t state this point enough no matter what your attorney has said to you, you must look out for you and your children no one else will do it for you.  If you listen to anything in your life listen to this PLEASE OBJECT TO ANYTHING THAT IS SAID BY ANYONE IN THAT COURTROOM THAT IS NOT CORRECT OR NOT TRUE (YOU MUST). If you do not it will be “on the record” as unopposed and is held as correct, do not let anyone tell you different. You need APPEALABLE ISSUES and you will get those when you OBJECT. It does not matter how the Judge rules it, overruled or sustained, as long as it is on the record. If your lawyer tells you different you can throw my name in his face. I have read courtroom procedure and it is stamped on my brain.  I want only the best for anyone fight for their life in this court and make no mistake when you lose your child they might as well have taken your life as well because that is the way you will feel afterwards.  Justice does not always prevail but if you follow these guidelines you will have grounds for an appeal.  IF YOU ARE A DECENT PARENT THEN YOU ARE IN YOUR CHILD’S BEST INTERESTS AND YOUR CHILD IS YOUR BEST INTEREST AS WELL.  I TRULY HOPE THESE REPORTS HELP YOU.

GOD BLESS AND GOOD LUCK

These reports prove why CPS kidnaps your children.  They are not looking out for the child’s best interest.  This information is all documented and CPS, as well as the courts, already have these reports.  THIS IS ALL FACT AND IF THE JUDGE TRULY CARES ABOUT YOUR KIDS HE WILL CONSIDER THIS INFORMATION.  The likelihood he has not read this report is slim in none.  CPS will know that you know the truth. Your child is not to be held as a hostage so the county can make money off of the destruction of your family.  File a timely appeal and whether you win or lose, SUE SUE SUE and take no prisoners. Hold them accountable for their actions. (They have been getting away with this for so long that they need help to control their own behavior.)

THE CORRUPT BUSINESS OF CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES BY: Nancy Schaefer Senator, 50th District

My introduction into child protective service cases was due to a grandmother in an adjoining state who called me with her tragic story. Her two granddaughters had been taken from her daughter who lived in my district. Her daughter was told wrongly that if she wanted to see her children again she should sign a paper and give up her children. Frightened and young, the daughter did. I have since discovered that parents are often threatened into cooperation of permanent separation of their children.

The children were taken to another county and placed in foster care. The foster parents were told wrongly that they could adopt the children. The grandmother then jumped through every hoop known to man in order to get her granddaughters. When the case finally came to court it was made evident by one of the foster parent’s children that the foster parents had, at any given time, 18 foster children and that the foster mother had an inappropriate relationship with the caseworker.

In the courtroom, the juvenile judge, acted as though she was shocked and said the two girls would be removed quickly. They were not removed. Finally, after much pressure being applied to the Department of Family and Children Services of Georgia (DFCS), the children were driven to South Georgia to meet their grandmother who gladly drove to meet them. After being with their grandmother two or three days, the judge, quite out of the blue, wrote up a new order to send the girls to their father, who previously had no interest in the case and who lived on the West Coast. The father was in “adult entertainment”. His girlfriend worked – 2 – as an “escort” and his brother, who also worked in the business, had a sexual charge brought against him. Within a couple of days the father was knocking on the grandmother’s door and took the girls kicking and screaming to California.

The father developed an unusual relationship with the former foster parents and soon moved back to the southeast, and the foster parents began driving to the father’s residence and picking up the little girls for visits. The oldest child had told her mother and grandmother on two different occasions that the foster father molested her.

To this day after five years, this loving, caring blood relative grandmother does not even have visitation privileges with the children. The little girls are in my opinion permanently traumatized and the young mother of the girls was so traumatized with shock when the girls were first removed from her that she has not recovered.

Throughout this case and through the process of dealing with multiple other mismanaged cases of the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS), I have worked with other desperate parents and children across the state because they have no rights and no one with whom to turn. I have witnessed ruthless behavior from many caseworkers, social workers, investigators, lawyers, judges, therapists, and others such as those who “pick up” the children. I have been stunned by what I have seen and heard from victims all over the state of Georgia.

In this report, I am focusing on the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS). However, I believe Child Protective Services nationwide has become corrupt and that the entire system is broken almost beyond repair. I am convinced parents and families should be warned of the dangers.

The Department of Child Protective Services, known as the Department of Family and Children Service (DFCS) in Georgia and other titles in other states, has become a “protected empire” built on taking children and separating families. This is not to say that there are not those children who do need to be removed from wretched situations and need protection. This report is concerned with the children and parents caught up in “legal kidnapping,” ineffective policies, and DFCS who do does not remove a child or children when a child is enduring torment and abuse. (See Exhibit A and Exhibit B)

In one county in my District, I arranged a meeting for thirty-seven families to speak freely and without fear. These poor parents and grandparents spoke of their painful, heart wrenching encounters with DFCS. Their suffering was overwhelming. They wept and cried. Some did not know where their children were and had not seen them in years. I had witnessed the “Gestapo” at work and I witnessed the deceitful conditions under which children were taken in the middle of the night, out of hospitals, off of school buses, and out – 3 – of homes.

In one county a private drug testing business was operating within the DFCS department that required many, many drug tests from parents and individuals for profit. In another county children were not removed when they were enduring the worst possible abuse. Due to being exposed, several employees in a particular DFCS office were fired. However, they have now been rehired either in neighboring counties or in the same county again. According to the calls I am now receiving, the conditions in that county are returning to the same practices that they had before the light was shown on their deeds.

Having worked with probably 300 cases statewide, I am convinced there is no responsibility and no accountability in the system. I have come to the conclusion:

• that poor parents often times are targeted to lose their children because they do not have the where-with-all to hire lawyers and fight the system. Being poor does not mean you are not a good parent or that you do not love your child, or that your child should be removed and placed with strangers;

• that all parents are capable of making mistakes and that making a mistake does not mean your children are always to be removed from the home. Even if the home is not perfect, it is home; and that’s where a child is the safest and where he or she wants to be, with family;

• that parenting classes, anger management classes, counseling referrals, therapy classes and on and on are demanded of parents with no compassion by the system even while they are at work and while their children are separated from them. This can take months or even years and it emotionally devastates both children and parents. Parents are victimized by “the system” that makes a profit for holding children longer and “bonuses” for not returning children;

• that caseworkers and social workers are oftentimes guilty of fraud. They withhold evidence. They fabricate evidence and they seek to terminate parental rights. However, when charges are made against them, the charges are ignored;

• that the separation of families is growing as a business because local governments have grown accustomed to having taxpayer dollars to balance their ever-expanding budgets;

• that Child Protective Service and Juvenile Court can always hide behind a confidentiality clause in order to protect their decisions and keep the funds flowing. There should be open records and “court watches”! Look who is being paid! – 4 – There are state employees, lawyers, court investigators, court personnel, and judges. There are psychologists, and psychiatrists, counselors, caseworkers, therapists, foster parents, adoptive parents, and on and on. All are looking to the children in state custody to provide job security. Parents do not realize that social workers are the glue that holds “the system” together that funds the court, the child’s attorney, and the multiple other jobs including DFCS’s attorney.

• that The Adoption and the Safe Families Act, set in motion by President Bill Clinton, offered cash “bonuses” to the states for every child they adopted out of foster care. In order to receive the “adoption incentive bonuses” local child protective services need more children. They must have merchandise (children) that sell and you must have plenty of them so the buyer can choose. Some counties are known to give a $4,000 bonus for each child adopted and an additional $2,000 for a “special needs” child. Employees work to keep the federal dollars flowing;

• that there is double dipping. The funding continues as long as the child is out of the home. When a child in foster care is placed with a new family then “adoption bonus funds” are available. When a child is placed in a mental health facility and is on 16 drugs per day, like two children of a constituent of mine, more funds are involved;

• that there is double dipping. The funding continues as long as the child is out of the home. When a child in foster care is placed with a new family then “adoption bonus funds” are available. When a child is placed in a mental health facility and is on 16 drugs per day, like two children of a constituent of mine, more funds are involved; • that there are no financial resources and no real drive to unite a family and help keep them together; • that the incentive for social workers to return children to their parents quickly after taking them has disappeared and who in protective services will step up to the plate and say,

“This must end!

No one, because they are all in the system together and a system with no leader and no clear policies will always fail the children. Look at the waste in government that is forced upon the tax payer; • that the “Policy Manuel” is considered “the last word” for DFCS. However, it is too long, too confusing, poorly written and does not take the law into consideration; • that if the lives of children were improved by removing them from their homes, there might be a greater need for protective services, but today all children are not safer.

Children, of whom I am aware, have been raped and impregnated in foster care and the head of a Foster Parents Association in my District was recently arrested because of child molestation; • that some parents are even told if they want to see their children or grandchildren, they must divorce their spouse. Many, who are under privileged, feeling they have no option, will divorce and – 5 – then just continue to live together. This is an anti-family policy, but parents will do anything to get their children home with them.

• fathers, (non-custodial parents) I must add, are oftentimes treated as criminals without access to their own children and have child support payments strangling the very life out of them; • that the Foster Parents Bill of Rights does not bring out that a foster parent is there only to care for a child until the child can be returned home. Many Foster Parents today use the Foster Parent Bill of Rights to hire a lawyer and seek to adopt the child from the real parents, who are desperately trying to get their child home and out of the system;

• that tax dollars are being used to keep this gigantic system afloat, yet the victims, parents, grandparents, guardians and especially the children, are charged for the system’s services. • that grandparents have called from all over the State of Georgia trying to get custody of their grandchildren. DFCS claims relatives are contacted, but there are cases that prove differently. Grandparents who lose their grandchildren to strangers have lost their own flesh and blood. The children lose their family heritage and grandparents, and parents too, lose all connections to their heirs.

• that The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect in 1998 reported that six times as many children died in foster care than in the general public and that once removed to official “safety”, these children are far more likely to suffer abuse, including sexual molestation than in the general population. • That according to the California Little Hoover Commission Report in 2003, 30% to 70% of the children in California group homes do not belong there and should not have been removed from their homes.

\6 – FINAL REMARKS On my desk are scores of cases of exhausted families and troubled children. It has been beyond me to turn my back on these suffering, crying, and sometimes beaten down individuals. We are mistreating the most innocent.

Child Protective Services have become adult centered to the detriment of children. No longer is judgment based on what the child needs or who the child wants to be with or what is really best for the whole family; it is some adult or bureaucrat who makes the decisions, based often on just hearsay, without ever consulting a family member, or just what is convenient, profitable, or less troublesome for a director of DFCS.

I have witnessed such injustice and harm brought to these families that I am not sure if I even believe reform of the system is possible! The system cannot be trusted. It does not serve the people. It obliterates families and children simply because it has the power to do so. Children deserve better. Families deserve better. It’s time to pull back the curtain and set our children and families free. “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and the needy” Proverbs 31:8-9 Please continue to read: Recommendations Exhibit A Exhibit B – 7

– RECOMMENDATIONS1. Call for an independent audit of the Department of Family and Children’s Services (DFCS) to expose corruption and fraud.

2. Activate immediate change. Every day that passes means more families and children are subject to being held hostage

. 3. End the financial incentives that separate families.

4. Grant to parents their rights in writing.

5. Mandate a search for family members to be given the opportunity to adopt their own relatives.

6. Mandate a jury trial where every piece of evidence is presented before removing a child from his or her parents.

7. Require a warrant or a positive emergency circumstance before removing children from their parents. (Judge Arthur G. Christean, Utah Bar Journal, January, 1997 reported that “except in emergency circumstances, including the need for immediate medical care, require warrants upon affidavits of probable cause before entry upon private property is permitted for the forcible removal of children from their parents.”)

8. Uphold the laws when someone fabricates or presents false evidence. If a parent alleges fraud, hold a hearing with the right to discovery of all evidence.

Senator Nancy Schaefer 50th District of Georgia Continue to Exhibit A next page – 8 – EXHIBIT A December 5, 2006 Jeremy’s Story( Some names withheld due to future hearings) As told to Senator Nancy Schaefer by Sandra (XXXX), a foster parent of Jeremy for 2 ½ years. My husband and I received Jeremy when he was 2 weeks old and we have been the only parents he has really ever known. He lived with us for 27 months. (XXXX) is the grandfather of Jeremy, and he is known for molesting his own children, for molesting Jeremy and has been court ordered not to be around Jeremy. (XXXX) is the mother of Jeremy, who has been diagnosed to be mentally ill, and also is known to have molested Jeremy. (XXXX) and Jeremy’s uncle is a registered sex offender and (XXXX) is the biological father, who is a drug addict and alcoholic and who continues to be in and out of jail. Having just described Jeremy’s world, all of these adults are not to be any part of Jeremy’s life, yet for years DFCS has known that they are. DFCS had to test (XXXX) (the grandfather) and his son (XXXX) (the uncle) and (XXXX) to determine the real father. (XXXX) is the biological father although any of them might have been. In court, it appeared from the case study, that everyone involved knew that this little boy had been molested by family members, even by his own mother, (XXXX). In court, (XXX), the mother of Jeremy, admitted to having had sex with (XXXX) (the grandfather) and (XXXX) (her own brother) that morning. Judge (XXXX) and DFCS gave Jeremy to his grandmother that same day. (XXXX), the grandmother, is over 300 lbs., is unable to drive, and is unable to take care of Jeremy due to physical problems.

She also has been in a mental hospital several times due to her behavior. Even though it was ordered by the court that the grandfather (XXXX), the uncle (XXXX) (a convicted sex offender), (XXXX) his mother who molested him and (XXXX) his biological father, a convicted drug addict, were not to have anything to do with the child, they all continue to come and go as they please at (XXXX address), where Jeremy has been “sentenced to live” for years. This residence has no bathroom and little heat.

The front door and the windows are boarded. (See pictures) This home should have been condemned years ago. I have been in this home. No child should ever have to live like this or with such people. Jeremy was taken from us at age 2 ½ years after (XXXX) obtained attorney (XXXX), who was the same attorney who represented him in a large settlement from an auto accident. I am told, that attorney (XXXX), as grandfather’s attorney, is known to have repeatedly gotten (XXXX) off of several criminal charges in White County.

This is a matter of record and is – 9 – known by many in White County. I have copies of some records. (XXXX grandfather), through (XXXX attorney’s) work, got (XXXX), the grandmother of Jeremy, legal custody of Jeremy. (XXXX grandfather) who cannot read or write also got his daughter (XXXX) and son (XXXX) diagnosed by government agencies as mentally ill. (XXXX grandfather), through legal channels, has taken upon himself all control of the family and is able to take possession of any government funding coming to these people. It was during this time that Jeremy was to have a six-month transitional period between (XXXX grandmother) and my family as we were to give him up. The court ordered agreement was to have been 4 days at our house and 3 days at (XXXX grandmother).

DFCS stopped the visits within 2 weeks. The reason given by DFCS was the child was too traumatized going back and forth. In truth, Jeremy begged us and screamed never to be taken back to (XXXX his grandmother) house, which we have on video.

We, as a family, have seen Jeremy in stores time to time with (XXXX grandmother) and the very people he is not to be around. At each meeting Jeremy continues to run to us wherever he sees us and it is clear he is suffering. This child is in a desperate situation and this is why I am writing, and begging you Senator Schaefer, to do something in this child’s behalf. Jeremy can clearly describe in detail his sexual molestation by every member of this family and this sexual abuse continues to this day.

When Jeremy was 5 years of age I took him to Dr. (XXXX) of Habersham County who did indeed agree that Jeremy’s rectum was black and blue and the physical damage to the child was clearly a case of sexual molestation . Early in Jeremy’s life, when he was in such bad physical condition, we took him to Egleston Children Hospital where at two months of age therapy was to begin three times a week. DFCS decided that the (XXXX grandparent family) should participate in his therapy. However, the therapist complained over and over that the (XXXX grandparent family) would not even wash their hands and would cause Jeremy to cry during these sessions. (XXXX the grandmother), after receiving custody no longer allowed the therapy because it was an inconvenience.

The therapist reported that this would be a terrible thing to do to this child. Therapy was stopped and it was detrimental to the health of Jeremy. During (XXXX grandmother) custody, (XXXX uncle) has shot Jeremy with a BB gun and there is a report at (XXXX) County Sheriff’s office. There are several amber alerts at Cornelia Wal-Mart, Commerce Wal-Mart, and a 911 report from (XXXX) County Sheriff’s Department when Jeremy was lost. (XXXX grandmother), to teach Jeremy a lesson, took thorn bush limbs and beat the bottoms of his feet. Jeremy’s feet got infected and his feet had to be lanced by Dr. (XXXX). Then Judy called me to pick him up after about 4 days to take back him to the doctor because of intense pain. I took Jeremy to – 10 – Dr. (XXXX) in Gainesville. Dr. (XXXX) said surgery was needed immediately and a cast was added.

After returning home, (XXXX), his grandfather and (XXXX), his uncle, took him into the hog lot and allowed him to walk in the filth. Jeremy’s feet became so infected for a 2nd time that he was again taken back to Dr. (XXXX) and the hospital. No one in the hospital could believe this child’s living conditions. Jeremy is threatened to keep quiet and not say anything to anyone.

I have videos, reports, arrest records and almost anything you might need to help Jeremy. Please call my husband, Wendell, or me at any time.Sandra and (XXXX) husband (XXXX) Continue – Exhibit B EXHIBIT B Failure of DFCSto remove six desperate children A brief report regarding six children that Habersham County DFCS director failed to remove as disclosed to Senator Nancy Schaefer by Sheriff Deray Fincher of Habersham County. Sheriff Deray Fincher, Chief of Police Don Ford and Chief Investigator Lt. Greg Bowen Chief called me to meet with them immediately, which I did on Tuesday, October 16, 2007 Sheriff Fincher, after contacting the Director of Habersham County DFCS several times to remove six children from being horribly abused, finally had to get a court order to remove the children himself with the help of two police officers. The children, four boys and two girls, were not just being abused; they were being tortured by a monster father.

The six children and a live in girl friend were terrified of this man, the abuser. The children never slept in a bed, but always on the floor. The place where they lived was unfit for human habitation. The father on one occasion hit one of the boys across his head with a bat and cut the boy’s head open. The father then proceeded to hold the boy down and sew up the child’s head with a needle and red thread. However, even with beatings and burnings, this is only a fraction of what the father did to these children and to the live-in girlfriend.

– 11 – Sheriff Fincher has pictures of the abuse and condition of one of the boys and at the writing of this report, he has the father in jail in Habersham County. It should be noted that when the DFCS director found out that Sheriff Fincher was going to remove the children, she called the father and warned him to flee. This is not the only time this DFCS director failed to remove a child when she needed to do so. (See Exhibit A)

The egregious acts and abhorrent behavior of officials who are supposed to protect children can no longer be tolerated. Senator Nancy Schaefer

THE FOLLOWING IS FROM WIKIPEDIA:

Criticism

Brenda Scott, in her 1994 book Out of Control: Who’s Watching Our Child Protection Agencies, criticizes CPS, stating, “Child Protective Services is out of control. The system, as it operates today, should be scrapped. If children are to be protected in their homes and in the system, radical new guidelines must be adopted. At the core of the problem is the anti-family mindset of CPS. Removal is the first resort, not the last. With insufficient checks and balances, the system that was designed to protect children has become the greatest perpetrator of harm.

Despite the benefits of the services of CPS, in the last two decades, they have come under intense private and public scrutiny as an institution than can and has caused great harm in the name of protection. Although child welfare agencies are generally viewed positively, there has been an increase in the amount of cases where critics believe CPS have reacted out of their bounds.

A notable recent case is the family of Gary and Melissa Gates in Texas. The school called the local CPS and requested the Child Protective Services forcibly remove all thirteen of the Gates children and take them to foster homes under a court order which allowed an Emergency Removal, when there is clear evidence of danger to the physical health & safety of the child. The local CPS gave the explanation that they felt, quote, “Mr. Gates was uncooperative and his uncooperativeness with us put the children at risk.” Even though the court ordered the children to be returned, CPS continues to classify the Gates as child abusers. Some have accused the CPS of having too much immediate power leaving the parents feeling lost and aggravated. The CPS has been accused of prejudging parents before proper investigations were done.

An ongoing case about Nastic family living in U.S. has received an intervention from the Serbia government. Children were taken away from their parents after their naked photos were found on the father’s computer. Such photos are common in Serbia culture. Furthermore, parents claim that their ethnic and religious rights have been violated – children are not permitted to speak Serbian, nor to meet with their parents for orthodox Christmas. They can meet only mother once a week. Children have suffered psychological traumas due to their separation from parents. Polygraph showed that father did not abuse children. Trial is set for January 26. Psychologists from Serbia stated that few hours of conversation with children are enough to see whether they have been abused. Children were taken from their family 7 months ago. FBI started an investigation against the CPS.

Texas

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services had itself been an object of reports of unusual numbers of poisonings, death, rapes and pregnancies of children under its care since 2004. The Texas Family and Protective Services Crisis Management Team was created by executive order after the critical report Forgotten Children of 2004.

Texas Child Protective Services was hit with a rare if not unprecedented legal sanction for a “groundless cause of action” and ordered to pay $32,000 of the Spring family’s attorney fees. Judge Schneider wrote in a 13-page order, “The offensive conduct by (CPS) has significantly interfered with the legitimate exercise of the traditional core functions of this court.”

Nancy Schaefer

Georgia State Senator Nancy Schaefer published a report “The Corrupt Business of Child Protective Services” making many claims against CPS including. Senator Nancy Schaefer and her husband were shot and killed shortly after she had appeared before congress and exposed the national child pediphile, prostitution, and pornography ring working out of the Child Protective Services Industry.

The late Senator had exposed the CPS underbelly running from California, Arizona, Texas, Ohio, New york just to name a few.  Senator Schaefer was calling for the permanent end of the Child Protection Racketeering.  According to the investigation done by the late senator in her 5 year long investigation no CHILD EVER LEAVES CPS UNSCAVED, that the child protection industry was mob of Judges, politicians, senators and everyone involved in the CPS courts system was guilty of Kidnapping Children and putting them into an horrific environment..

  • Unfair judgement of families, especially those most unable to defend themselves. Without compassion, unreasonable and impossible demands that separate families and cause stress are made of parents.

  • Local governments accustomed to resulting flow of taxpayer dollars to balance growing budgets routinely ignore charges against Child Protective Services. Funding continues as long as children are out of their home, adoption bonuses are also available, but no incentive remains to return children home.

  • On top of $4000–$6000 per child is a multiplying factor based on the percentage that a state exceeds its baseline adoption goal.

  • Bonuses and incentives cause employees to work diligently to exploit children for government money while parents are charged for the cost of their care. Fraud, fabrication, withholding, and destroying of evidence, unnecessary termination of parental rights, and double dipping are common while confidentiality clause is used to protect the beneficiaries.

  • Beneficiaries include state employees, lawyers, court investigators, guardian ad litems, court personnel, judges, psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, caseworkers, therapists, foster parents, adoptive parents, and others. Incentives to put children on more drugs per day involve additional funds and Medicaid.

  • Parents are sometimes pressured by CPS agents to divorce their spouse in order to see their children again. Parental cooperation is often interpreted as guilt, and parents separated from their children are treated as criminals often without access to visit or even see their children.

  • Child protective services is a wasteful bureaucracy with no clear leader and unclear policies. State legislators are generally powerless to correct the federally mandated system.

  • Tragedies happen where children die in CPS custody due to neglect or abuse while parents are trying hard to regain custody of their children. Such tragedies should never happen.

  • While CPS claims relatives are contacted, there are very many cases that proves false, where grandparents and other relatives attempt to get custody and are denied. Parents and grandparents lose all connections to their heirs while children lose their heritage.

  • The California Little Hoover Commission Report in 2003 reported that 30% to 70% of the children in California group homes neither belong there nor should have been removed from their own homes.

  • Children are in far greater danger in CPS custody today than in imperfect homes. The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect reported in 1998 that six times as many children died in foster care than in the general public. Children removed to official “safety” are far more likely to suffer sexual molestation and other abuse than in the general population.

  • CPS problem reports

  • The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, as with other states, had itself been an object of reports of unusual numbers of poisonings, death, rapes and pregnancies of children under its care since 2004. The Texas Family and Protective Services Crisis Management Team was created by executive order after the critical report Forgotten Children    of 2004. Texas Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn made a statement in 2006 about the Texas foster care system.   In Fiscal 2003, 2004 and 2005, respectively 30, 38 and 48 foster children died in the state’s care. The number of foster children in the state’s care increased 24 percent to 32,474 in Fiscal 2005, while the number of deaths increased 60 percent. Compared to the general population, a child is four times more likely to die in the Texas foster care system. In 2004, about 100 children were treated for poisoning from medications; 63 were treated for rape that occurred while under state care including four-year old twin boys, and 142 children gave birth, though others believe Ms. Strayhorn’s report was not scientifically researched, and that major reforms need to be put in place to assure that children in the conservatorship of the state get as much attention as those at risk in their homes.

    Responsibility for misconduct

    In May 2007, the United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals found in ROGERS v. COUNTY OF SAN JOAQUIN, No. 05-16071 that a CPS social worker acting without due process and without exigency (emergency conditions) violated the 14th Amendment and Title 42 United State Code Section 1983. The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution says that a state may not make a law that abridges “abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States” and no state may “deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” Title 42 United States Code Section 1983 states that citizens can sue a person that deprives them of their rights under the pretext of a regulation of a state.

    Disproportionality & Disparity in the Child Welfare System

    In the United States, data suggests that a disproportionate number of minority children, particularly African American and Native American children, enter the foster care system. National data in the United States provides evidence that disproportionality may vary throughout the course of a child’s involvement with the child welfare system. Differing rates of disproportionality are seen at key decision points including the reporting of abuse, substantiation of abuse, and placement into foster care.   Additionally, once they enter foster care, research suggests that they are likely to remain in care longer.    Research has shown that there is no difference in the rate of abuse and neglect among minority populations when compared to Caucasian children that would account for the disparity.   The Juvenile Justice system has also been challenged by disproportionate negative contact of minority children.    Because of the overlap in these systems, it is likely that this phenomenon within multiple systems may be related.

    Constitutional issues

    In May 2007, the United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals found in Rogers v. County of San Joaquin, No. 05-16071 that a CPS social worker who removed children from their natural parents into foster care without obtaining judicial authorization was acting without due process and without exigency (emergency conditions) violated the 14th Amendment and Title 42 United State Code Section 1983. The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution says that a state may not make a law that abridges “… the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States” and no state may “deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” Title 42 United States Code Section 1983     states that citizens can sue in federal courts any person who acting under a color of law to deprive the citizens of their civil rights under the pretext of a regulation of a state, See.   

    In case of Santosky v. Kramer, 455 US 745, Supreme Court reviewed a case when Department of Social Services removed two younger children from their natural parents only because the parents had been previously found negligent toward their oldest daughter.     When the third child was only three days old, DSS transferred him to a foster home on the ground that immediate removal was necessary to avoid imminent danger to his life or health. The Supreme Court vacated previous judgment and stated: “Before a State may sever completely and irrevocably the rights of parents in their natural child, due process requires that the State support its allegations by at least clear and convincing evidence. But until the State proves parental unfitness, the child and his parents share a vital interest in preventing erroneous termination of their natural relationship”.

    A District of Columbia Court of Appeals concluded that the lower trial court erred in rejecting the relative custodial arrangement selected by the natural mother who tried to preserve her relationship with the child. The previous judgment granting the foster mother’s adoption petition was reversed, the case remanded to the trial court to vacate the orders granting adoption and denying custody, and to enter an order granting custody to the child’s relative.

    Notable lawsuits

    In 2010 an ex-foster child was awarded $30 million by jury trial in California (Santa Clara County) for sexual abuse damages that happened to him in foster home from 1995 to 1999.   The foster parent, John Jackson, was licensed by state despite the fact that he abused his own wife and son, overdosed on drugs and was arrested for drunken driving. In 2006, Jackson was convicted in Santa Clara County of nine counts of lewd or lascivious acts on a child by force, violence, duress, menace and fear and seven counts of lewd or lascivious acts on a child under 14, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office.     The sex acts he forced the children in his foster care to perform sent him to prison for 220 years. Later in 2010, Giarretto Institute, the private foster family agency responsible for licensing and monitoring Jackson’s foster home and others, also was found to be negligent and liable for 75 percent of the abuse that was inflicted on the victim, and Jackson was liable for the rest.

    In 2009 Oregon Department of Human Services has agreed to pay $2 million into a fund for the future care of twins who were allegedly abused by their foster parents; it was the largest such settlement in the agency’s history. According to the civil rights suit filed on request of twins’ adoptive mother in December 2007 in U.S. Federal Court, kids were kept in makeshift cages—cribs covered with chicken wire secured by duct tape—in a darkened bedroom known as “the dungeon.” The brother and sister often went without food, water or human touch. The boy, who had a shunt put into his head at birth to drain fluid, didn’t receive medical attention, so when police rescued the twins he was nearly comatose. The same foster family previously took in their care hundreds of other children over nearly four decades.DHS said the foster parents deceived child welfare workers during the checkup visits.

    Several lawsuits were brought in 2008 against the Florida Department of Children & Families (DCF), accusing it of mishandling reports that Thomas Ferrara, 79, a foster parent, was molesting girls.The suits claimed that though there were records of sexual misconduct allegations against Ferrara in 1992, 1996, and 1999, the DCF continued to place foster children with Ferrara and his then-wife until 2000. Ferrara was arrested in 2001 after a 9-year-old girl told detectives he regularly molested her over two years and threatened to hurt her mother if she told anyone. Records show that Ferrara had as many as 400 children go through his home during his 16 years as a licensed foster parent from 1984 to 2000.   Officials stated that the lawsuits over Ferrara end up costing the DCF almost $2.26 million. Similarly, in 2007 Florida‘s DCF paid $1.2 million to settle a lawsuit that alleged DCF ignored complaints that another mentally challenged Immokalee girl was being raped by her foster father, Bonifacio Velazquez, until the 15-year-old gave birth to a child.

    In a class action lawsuit Charlie and Nadine H. v. McGreevey  was filed in federal court by “Children’s Rights” New York organization on behalf of children in the custody of the New JerseyDivision of Youth and Family Services (DYFS).    The complaint alleged violations of the children’s constitutional rights and their rights under Title IV-E of the Social Security Act, the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, Early Periodic Screening Diagnosis and Treatment, 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Multiethnic Placement Act (MEPA). In July 2002, the federal court granted plaintiffs’ experts access to 500 children’s case files, allowing plaintiffs to collect information concerning harm to children in foster care through a case record review.   These files revealed numerous cases in which foster children were abused, and DYFS failed to take proper action. On June 9, 2004, the child welfare panel appointed by the parties approved the NJ State’s Reform Plan. The court accepted the plan on June 17, 2004.  The same organization filed similar lawsuits against other states in recent years that caused some of the states to start child welfare reforms.   

    In 2007 Deanna Fogarty-Hardwick obtained a jury verdict against Orange County (California) and two of its social workers for violating her Fourteenth Amendment rights to familial association.   The $4.9 million verdict grew to a $9.5 million judgment as the County lost each of its successive appeals.    The case finally ended in 2011 when the United States Supreme Court denied Orange County’s request to overturn the verdict. Litigated by a team of attorneys: Shawn McMillan, Sondra Sutherland and Jodi Hausman, Law Offices of Donnie Cox , Donnie Cox and Dennis B. Atchley.

Judge Judy used to be a Juvenile Dependency Court Judge!


Published on Jul 28, 2012
Vintage Judge Judith Sheindlin as a Family Court Judge
Something about Judge Judy has always reminded me of my own mother. After watching the personal interviews now she’s EXACTLY like my Mom (the NY accent and all). Although she didn’t allow OBJECTIONS from the attorneys due to the caseload, at least she is REAL. I bet she would have noticed a piece of paper with NO NAME, NO ID, NO SPECIMEN NUMBER, NO LABORATORY NAME, NO COLLECTION SITE, NO CHAIN OF CUSTODY FORM, NO CERTIFYING SCIENTIST which claimed to be a valid hair follicle test document!

Movie in Production


genre-documentary (2)

This is a documentary film about the trafficking of children by the criminals working for our government and targeting good families for their easily adoptable children. This has become an American epidemic and shows no sign of slowing down. With today’s corrupt judges receiving illegal money from the counties has led to a entire industry of child trafficking. Judges have granted themselves immunity for their role and the acceptance of other funds but it is still illegal and makes everything these judges do void. There is so much more to be seen in this film.

List of OIG Investigations 2011-2012


OIG investigationsList of OIG Investigations 2011-2012

(You can click on the picture or the caption.) This link is to view a document I found from the Office of Inspector General listing the investigations conducted from 1/1/2011-8/23/2012. It does not state which agency or person that was investigated however, it shows how much corruption is being reported and investigated. The cases on this list were probably a small portion of the actual reports/complaints received. I am posting it because it shows what they investigate. The OIG investigates government and private agencies receiving federal funding. Please share this post with everyone you know who has a complaint about CPS and the courts when they fabricate evidence and commit perjury. We must complain, complain, and complain some more. I recently heard that the OIG said that they hear the worst horror stories from Riverside County.

Judge Cited 3 Times for Running Red Lights, Defense Panel Attorney Fails to Yield to Pedestrians!


Its TRUE! A former Riverside County Juvenile Dependency Court Judge has a history of failing to obey red signal /lights and a Defense Panel attorney for children has a history of being cited (twice) for failing to yield to pedestrians!

We have established a well read blog in Riverside county now and have about 10,000 followers and we have been consistently doubling about every 3 months,  A message to the “Defense Panel” over there on Technology Drive, is your definition of saving abused and neglected children defined as: “the act of allowing children to be taken from their families and put into a strange place with strange people where their chances of maltreatment are greatly increased“? Is your definition of a safer community defined as: “that of which 85% percent of these children end up committing felonies and going to prison, getting out on parole and committing more crimes“? Is your definition of family defined as: “a group of non-related people are forced to live together unattached and unable to donate organs to each other when medically necessary to save a life“?

Your malfeasance causes children to lose faith in anything sacred, especially family. Your pathological views and addiction to “fixing people” causes irreversible and permanent damage to approximately 30,000 Riverside County families each year. Some of courtroombullshitthese families may not be your interpretation of perfect but that is up to the family to decide not YOU. The destruction of families is how you earn a living. You all need to get right or be removed from society and locked away to protect the community from your wickedness for you have failed at protecting children.

So from now on I am going to run background checks on you and every cohort of yours. When I find even an unpaid parking ticket, or a citation for running a red light, I am going to direct a lot of attention to it and anything else I can dig up.  You owe these people and it is time you start doing your job.  We will be conducting interviews as well.

I know you don’t like me but if you did your job I wouldn’t be here digging up you life.  I see things that you are doing right now that is disgusting beyond comprehension. I am looking for anything I can get on any SOCIAL WORKER in Riverside County that could be true upon a preponderance. It is time our officials and courts STOP hurting children and start being accountable. You can start with following your own statutes, codes, rules, regulations and behaving like normal people who do their job. If you don’t like your job GET A NEW ONE.  I am sick to death at watching CPS submit faked documents and alleged letters without objection by anyone. What is not real is faked so you all have lost all touch with reality. You and the county make money on the destruction of the family.

Parents have to watch the most cruel terrorism in existence, the kidnapping of their children.  kidhome1Who the hell does this Judge think he is sitting on that Title IV-E funded wooden horse?. I state this as truth and the absolute truth so help me God. There is no point in taking an OATH anymore because it doesn’t mean shit.  This Judge prevents and denies exculpatory evidence the parents have, overrules legally sustainable objections, fails to ensure the rights of parents AND the children, ignores and allows obviously fabricated evidence into the record, makes orders which CPS is allowed to be in contempt of, and will enjoy putting on an elaborate show during the termination of parental rights hearing by grossly overdramatizing cases for the benefit of the prospective adoptive parent.

Taking money for the 3 year term on the CPS bench is illegal due to the fact that everyone, including the Judge, is paid by the County of Riverside who is a party these cases. Many things going on in your courtroom are illegal and we are letting people know about it. Oddly, we all are hoping and praying for you all to gain a conscious.  However, I expect that you will have your friends do something to harass me but I do not really care because you have already sentenced me to a life of loss and heartache because I chose to try and protect my son from CPS.  You didn’t even notice, or maybe you did and allowed it anyway, another mans criminal record into evidence as if it were my record.  I will not just stand by while you continue to destroy families so you are able to afford your Audi’s and your 7 bedroom (empty) houses with the lives you destroy.  You must be held accountable for your actions.  My right as an American citizen is to hold people like you accountable for using the bench on which you sit as your own RACKETEERING BUSINESS.

A GREAT ATTORNEY TAKING DOWN JUDGES FOR CONFLICT OF INTEREST


This works for JV courts as well. They are on the payroll of CPS and receive money through HHS General Fund. These judges are doing the same thing in Riverside County, I am talking about the CPS judges mainly but you know as well as I do this apply’s to all. It is about time these judges heads started to roll for the Innocent families and lives that have been destroyed by people who care about nothing other than their selfish BS. I will publish everything I find on these judges, attorney’s, and social workers. What makes them get busted and how it was done. I said it before CPS and the criminal court who works for you, I will never give up, I will see the end of this criminal system kidnapping children, count on it, Mr. Coley and Vinson

Innocence Destroyed, CHILD TRAFFICKING BY CPS


THE TRUTH ABOUT CPS
This film will open anyone’s eyes, please watch all three parts it isn’t long and children lives need everyone to know what is really going on.
If you truly love a child and want the truth about CPS watch this film and you decide. Everything in this film will show you the department you believe in.

Perverted Family Law Judge Gets Lienient Suspension


The perverts lurk where there are children. Like the creep in his car along the route children walk to and from school, this “Judge” looked at porn between hearing cases! Talk about creepy! A 60 day suspension is far too easy and does not match the offense, at least that is MY opinion. People who look at porn in the privacy of their home or other areas of their private life is no one’s business as long as it is confined to that arena but in chambers, dealing with FAMILIES AND THE CUSTODY OF CHILDREN? Come on now! You know he’s not the only one either!

Another FBI Investigation into Child Protective Services child trafficking.2013 AMERICA WAKE UP


Scheduled Protest for CPS and their cohorts.

We are still scheduled to have the largest protest Riverside County has ever seen at the 3 locations pointed out South West Court house, Moreno Valley CPS on Cottonwood and Kid Street CPS Riverside off of Tyler so keep the emails coming in so far we have had close to nine hundred responses and are working on a mas mailer for reminders the schedule.is still tentative in 3rd week we are still looking for volunteers to help make signs, THIS IS TRULY FOR THE CHILDREN SO PLEASE DO THIS?

Feature Story for DonnellyJustice.me

This child trafficking is still going on right now  March 2013 and I have verified this through families having their children kidnapped by the county and pushed by this court, in case after case coming out of South West Courthouse, Riverside County I am finding horror stories of parents losing their children and never allowed to present any evidence, so only the side of CPS is allowed on record and family is said to be bias while CPS testimony is all fraud and in a real court would be easily beaten if real evidence was shown not hearsay.

Thus C.P.S victimizes those families that have no means available, to properly investigate C.P.S corrupt activities directed at their family. Since Federal and state matching funds generate the budget for C.P.S, the single means utilized to elevate the budget is to increase foster care and adoption caseloads. Bonus incentives for adoptions are currently $8,000 per child. $4,000 is given to the foster parents and another $4,000 is placed in a general fund, to reward workers for completing their job duties. Workers in this county, state that they do not personally financially benefit from this fund. Thus it leads us to believe, that other neighboring agencies are benefiting form this fund, in return for deceptive practices that support C.P.S decisions.

BABY TRAFFICKING False Allegations of drug abuse have been logged against mothers and their newborn infants as a means to place these infants into protective custody. The hospital staff has allowed C.P.S to remove infants (a hospital violation) prior to verification of blood and urine drug screen tests. C.P.S is mandated to secure verification of drug allegations via blood and urine results, prior to removing the newborn infant from the hospital. All cases known to us resulted negative for the mother and the newborn, but these infants were never returned, and were adopted outside of kinship. In the past year, the FBI has arrested and imprisoned C.P.S workers who were actively involved in baby trafficking for profit. These C.P.S workers knowingly abducted infants from the hospital where they in turn networked them into legal adoption agencies.

Augustus Fennerty, FBI director for Crimes against Children (Washington D.C) can verify this information. (202) 324-3000 CHILD SEX TRADE INDUSTRY Southern California FBI District has videotape recorded CPS workers placing foster care children onto planes via LAX, destination Europe for child sex trade industry. This can be verified through Ted Gunderson, (retired) FBI Director Southern California (310) 477-6565. SEXUAL VICTIMIZATION IN FOSTER CARE For the families in relation to our group in San BernardinoCounty, it has come to our attention while comparing similarities, that approximately half the children in foster care have been molested. These children were not sexually abused by their parents, but by the foster fathers or others in the foster home. It was also noted that these foster homes are still operating in the same capacity prior to complaints, without any investigation into these allegations. C.P.S officials were made aware of these accusations by the children, but failed to follow through with a criminal investigation. In conclusion, Child Protective Service is nothing more than an “oasis’’ for child molesters, to make a profit, while at the same time committing a crime, only to be protected by a malignant system that delivers a never ending supply of victims .

SYSTEMATIC FRAUDULENT MANEUVERS UTILIZED TO ENHANCE C.P.S BUDGET C.P.S manufactures multiple nonexistent /fictitious abuse case scenarios to offset true statistical abuse case information. C.P.S concurrently processes these children from foster care to adoption, in order to obtain perverse monetary incentives in the form of bonuses. C.P.S provides a market to neighboring agencies and the courts ( commissioners, psychologists, monitors, court mandated behavioral class instructors, court appointed legal counsel), in order for them to financially benefit from the foster care/adoption system. C.P.S victimizes innocent impoverished families, draws them into a corrupt system to utilize their children as pawns for commerce.

MALICIOUS OPERATIVE TECHNIQUES C.P.S is utilized by family court officials, as an adverse tool to extricate children from one parent to the other, with reference to “parent alienation syndromeâ€. Where, in truth, caseworkers are never allowed to testify in family court under the cloak of C.P.S authority, due to possible misuse or conflict of interest related to the right to privacy laws. C.P.S utilizes coercive measures to persuade parents to submit to statements of prior alleged abuse, when these actions were nonexistent. In other words, forcing desperate parents to “plea bargain†to a C.P.S fabricated crime, for the return of their children from foster care. C.P.S fabricates portions of investigations, where such duties have never been physically performed, to purposely mislead or direct a case. C.P.S knowingly abandons children into foster care, conscious of the fact that some foster care parents and or individuals in the home physically and sexually abuse the children in their protective custody. C.P.S intentionally fails to prosecute parents accused of child abuse, since in the majority of cases, no initial crime has been committed. C.P.S represents themselves in positive personas, by omitting, altering, and falsifying documents, so as to mislead the public and or government of their true actions as listed above. Thereby publicly grandstanding, displaying an inaccurate social martyrdom for the well being of children. C.P.S ignores crimes committed in foster care, such as the atrocious acts of unexplained deaths. C.P.S fails to question these individuals for their abusive conduct, whereby, if itwere not a foster care parent, these individuals would be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

SHOULD CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICE BE RESTRUCTURED? The police should determine if a child has a true need for protection from his parents, since child abuse is a criminal offence. Thus, C.P.S should be incorporated with Crimes against Children Units that are currently located within police, sheriffs and FBI agencies. The merging of the two would reduce the amount of false allegations reported, since complaints made to a police unit is a criminal offence. Also, the police have the training and resources needed to conduct a thorough investigation. This allows them to determine that if a crime has been committed that warrants the need for foster care. A parent/guardian under the suspicion of the crime “Child Abuse†would meet the criteria for removal. This would activate the foster care system. Only then would the foster care system be utilized as a response to a possible or suspected crime. Thus in turn, this would eliminate the unnecessary utilization of the foster care system that has been grossly misused in the past. Unwarranted victimization of children and their families would be greatly reduced and soaring costs would be contained. This would minimize the number of future cases that fall through the cracks and get lost in the system.

WHAT ROLE SHOULD THE SOCIAL WORKERS PLAY IN THE NEW CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICE? All caseworkers must have a bachelor’s degree in social work from an accredited college. All states must create bachelor level licensing for social workers. All workers must have a current license to work within any state or county in the United States with reciprocity. All social workers must have a preceptor for at least three months prior to individual casework. WHO SHOULD BE A MEMBER OF THE CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICE TEAM WITHIN THE CRIMES AGAINST CHILDREN UNITS? Other members from various agencies should be inclusive to this unit, since they bring their specific expertise to complete a proper investigation. It is our opinion that the following individuals who should comprise this team are as stated: Registered Nurse, School Principal, Detective, and Social Worker.

SHOULD AN OUTSIDE AGENCY SYSTEMATICALLY REVIEW THE CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICE TEAM’S PERFORMANCE? All agencies must have an outside quality control board that monitors case investigations on a random basis and when requested by the public. This Board must include members similar to the Child Protective Service team, with the addition of an individual from the public. No member may be employed more than three years, to maintain the integrity of the boards’ unbiased decisions. SHOULD WE MAINTAIN A CHILD ABUSE INDEX LIST? The child abuse index list shall be maintained only when an individual has been prosecuted and convicted by a court of law for a crime against a child. Today’s said list shall be destroyed, so as to prevent harm to those currently listed who have been accused of a crime against a child, but that have never been prosecuted or convicted. And, children should never be placed on any list that would categorize them in an adverse manner, such as this. SHOULD THERE BE NEW RULES AND REGULATIONS RELATED TO FOSTER CARE? There should be a limited number of children allowed to be placed in any single home under foster care, including adoption. No single family shall be allowed to adopt or provide foster care to more than two children at any time. The only exception shall be when siblings number more than two and are placed in the same single dwelling. This will eliminate the financial incentive for monetary gain related to housing foster children and adoptions.
——————————————————————————– Redlands, California 92373 Yucaipa, California 92399 July 12, 2004 U.S. House of Representatives Washington, DC 20515-0542 To our Honorable U.S. House of Representatives, It is unfortunate that Child Protective Service officials have mislead the government into believing, that increased funding is necessary to solve the multitude of problems that encompass C.P.S. This agency is utilizing the funding issue as the scapegoat for their problems, when in actuality the workers themselves, the lack of their personal accountability, are the source of the problem. Further funding will not solve C.P.S’S current crisis, only the restructuring of this agency will provide a solution. Sincerely, Cynthia Huckelberry Sushanna Khamis

SERIOUSLY DANGEROUS INFORMATIONAL REPORT ABOUT CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES (Everything you need to know to win.)


PART 1 OF 2:

PART 1: 5 YEARS OF RESEARCH COLLECTED FROM EXPERIENCE, AN FBI REPORT AND CASE LAW

Protest Rally be a part of or lose all. The only requirement is you and your chair.

Take back your rights.  In five or so years when you hear that we have lost all our rights and the only protest was 5 or 6 people who rallied in front of the court house or the state capital and you were not there because you did not care enough to stand up and say you can’t have my children or take anymore of my rights then you will know why they were taken..Do not pretend this is not happening to you and it will not affect you. If it hurts any single American then it hurts you.

There is so much insight in this report that I can’t tell you enough how important the information is in these next 2 reports. Learn everything you can here and I wish only good things for you and you r family. I have gone through this for a very long time and the information is yours free and gives you a feel foe what you are up against. There is any lawyer that says this information doesn’t help him is not telling the truth.  I truly hope this information helps people.  When you are done email me and become part of the biggest protest this country has ever seen. We have to do this our children are depending on us and no one else will save them. My second report will be on the F.B.I. investigation into C.P.S. and why nothing has been done to stop these criminals.

Email me at      ProjectManagerBill@gmail.com    You and I have to share this with everyone we know to stand up for the children, even if you can not convince you are right about CPS then they have to do it for the constitutional right to be free to raise children without government intrusion. The Government now owns your children, if we do not take back our rights. Email me.

                     CPS Now Parents can fight back

After a very immoral emergency worker for Child Protective Services took my child I started investigating Child Protective Services and was amazed to find an entire industry based solely on the theft of children, supported by the federal government through several funding sources including your Social Security fund through an act called Title IV-E funding and through CAPTA.

In order to qualify for these funds, the government set several requirements making their funding conditional: in order for states to be eligible for this money the courts must make certain findings and orders on the record yet more often than not, these conditions are violated and they get away with it. If parents were aware of this and did some research they would find out about the fraud and that about a half a million children are illegally kidnapped by this system each year.

The FBI did an investigation into this trafficking of children, this investigation lasted for about 8 years and Ted Gunderson’s findings are available on line and were very hard for me to find the entire report but I did and have it posted on my site, if you need a paper copy I will mail it to you. My site is > www.Donnellyjustice.me < the results would scare the hell out of every parent in this country and ended up in the White House,  Florida, Texas, Los Angeles  Mexico, and many states in between and many people died trying to cover this investigation up .

Over 80% of the children taken by CPS stem from false reports of abuse. When they have no evidence, they claim the children are “at risk” either way this is still fraud and government abuse. Child Protective Services flew a plane load of 210 children out of the country from Los Angeles and sold them. There is evidence and documentation to substantiate this and in FACT I have copies. All of these children were all on the missing persons list.  Protect your children from this agency. Never trust anyone from CPS, DPSS, DCFS, AFS or whatever it is called in your area. If you do after you read his report, then you took the risk.

.After Ted Gunderson’s report came out and the federal government did not do anything about the sale of children for federal money and after Clinton gave CPS a raise by way of adoption incentives, the faster they can adopt your child out the more money they get.  $2000-$4000 dollars just for the removal.

Ted Gunderson, FBI Senior Special Agent in Charge, Los Angles, resigned from his job , sent the report to the head of every Police and Government agency and went across the country. To try and do his part to fix things he started giving talks to police. conferences and different church communities alerting people of the criminal corruption in government selling children, running drugs and weapons leading all the way to boys town under the direction of Larry King laundering money Franklin Credit union. My facts are to many and this information is should be considered dangerous if CPS finds it. If you do use it against then make sure you know what you are dealing with, this is of highest value for the protection of your children. This is not a conspiracy it is fact and I will post the FBI report on my site. .

.

Ted Gunderson diapered in 2011 then after that the government stated he was crazy. I can tell you this for absolute certainty he was a very honest good man and I could I only hope to be as good of a man as he was. Ted Gunderson was the kind of a man that you only run across once maybe two times in a life time. The man who believes in his heart if he always does the right thing people will become better around him.

I just need to say some good words about Ted Gunderson God Bless the job he tried to accomplish for trying to make this world a better place.


The CPS story is very hard to believe for most people who do not have any experience with CPS. In fact, it is so hard to believe that most people won’t believe it and will instead believe that there is something wrong with you not CPS. Most people who have heard of CPS believe that they protect children and are doing good. You will find that when you try to tell your friends and family about CPS taking your children they will have a hard time believing you and will think it is your problem and what did you do wrong.

They may never realize that 95% of the children taken by CPS have suffered no abuse or injury of any kind and are in no danger in any way except from CPS. In fact, CPS is the greatest abuser of children in the entire world and children have 6 times more chance of dying in foster care than in their own home no matter how abusive it may be. CPS gets away with murder and stealing children for the money because Americans have been brained washed to not question authority and believe that whatever the government does it must be right. It is all just too incomprehensible for them to believe that our own government is that corrupt and would do such a terrible thing as kidnap children for money.

That just can’t be. That is something only criminals would do. They are right, that is something only criminal would do. What they fail to realize or won’t realize is that our government is now home to the criminals who are in control and corruption exists everywhere especially in CPS and the Juvenile court. Even when you are involved with CPS stealing your children it will take months for you to realize the extent of their corruption unless you get the facts now and save yourself major problems and heart ache by falling for their fraud and child stealing scam.


If you have the misfortune to be involved with CPS this is critical information that you need to know about CPS to have any chance of surviving. CPS and the juvenile court system are not what they appear or pretend to be. They are a criminal conspiracy to steal your children for the money and everything they do is to accomplish that. The following is what they really are and how they really steal your children for money and why it is so hard to see their scam until it is too late. It is all about the money and their smoke and mirrors tricks and frauds to steal your rights and your children!

1) The first thing you need to know is that CPS and the juvenile court is a criminal conspiracy to steal children for the money. Do not be fooled into believing that they actually care about you or your children or you. They do not! It is all about the money. It is all about the money. Did you get that? It is all about the money. One of CPS’s main deceptions is that they care. They con you into believing that they are here to help you and your children with your problems. Do not be fooled by this act. They are lying to get information from you to use against you. Do not say anything to them. Tell them to right down all their questions and you will respond. Any and everything you say to them will be used against you.

This is a fact and they will twist everything you say to make you look as bad as they can. For example. Your story= I take sleeping medication because I have a hard time sleeping. CPS story= you are a drug addict and are out of control and need sleeping medications so you can sleep after your drug binges. Your story= I see a counselor because sometimes the children are overwhelming. CPS story= you are mentally ill and cannot take care of your children and are seeing a counselor because you are guilty and are an unfit mother. This is not joke. This is exactly what CPS does and they will twist whatever you say into false allegations against you. The reason they do this is that they know they can get these lies into the juvenile court as facts and find you guilty of whatever they make up and you will not even know it until it is too late and you will unknowingly agree to it all.

2) One of the biggest CPS scams is to hold a carrot out in front of you to get you to go their way and do what they want you to do. Then when you think you have completed you your case plan they will change the plan and leave you hanging. Then they will come back with a new case plan and dangle the carrot in front of you again. This happens over and over again. The carrot being getting your child back. They are exploiting your hope that you will get your child back because you are a good parent and never abused your child and fairness will prevail. Right? Wrong!!! Fairness with CPS does not exist. In fact,

CPS used your sense of fairness and hope against you to keep you believing that you will get your child back when in fact their job is to trick you so they can take your child for the money. They will tell you that if you do what they tell you, you will get your child back. This is a lie to get you to agree with them and sign away your rights as you keep going down the path of destruction. They will keep doing this at every hearing until they completely take away all your rights without you even knowing it and they got you to consent to all of it.

3) What are they really doing? The entire juvenile court system is a series of traps to bury you deeper into the fraud each time until you have voluntarily given up all your rights and lose your children. It is all about private contracts that you consented to voluntarily. During this process CPS literally tortures you to the point of braking. By the way, this is their goal. They want you to break and time everything to create as much stress as possible. Very few people can last 18 months or 2 years with their children being stolen from them and constantly being accused of false lies without breaking. Of course, as soon as you break CPS is happy to declare that they were right and you are mentally ill and not a good parent and take your children permanently. Of course the court agrees because it is part of the conspiracy to steal your children for money.

You have to realize that for the people who work for CPS to become this cruel and evil they are trained psychopaths who can pretend to be your best friend while slowing stabbing you in the back to cause as much pain as possible. Then when they torture you to the breaking point they will then take your parental rights and blame it on you. How sick can it get! They are pure evil and despicable sub humans. This is Natzisim at its highest. CPS is a criminal organization do not forget this fact.

4) The courts part in this scam is to roll you over at each hearing. What does that mean? It means that CPS and the court have to haul you into court on a legal time line, usually 45 days plus a few days for filing to keep the case going. That is to get you to agree again with them. The CPS process is one case but a series of individual contract called the case plan and status report. At the end of one contract and the beginning of another there is a hearing where they roll you over into the next contract. When they do this all the false information and lies CPS has entered into court become facts and truth on the record by your own agreement. The judge will also make a few judgments and orders against you at that time. This is called a discontinuance of the evidence. That means that all the evidence you have is lost as you never got a chance to enter it into the record and all the false allegations that CPS fabricated are now facts in the court and are considered true and you are judged guilty accordingly but never even knew it. In other words, the hearing is really a one sided trial that you did not even know was a trail where CPS got all their lies into court as facts and the judge ruled in favor of them because you did not present any facts to rebut their lies. Is this a fair trial? No!! It is a scam!!! Did your attorney tell you about this? No!! Because he is part to the scam. How they trick you into this will be discussed next. To stop this you would have to not agree with their case plan and set every hearing for trial to allow the truth and your side to get into evidence. Even then, the judge is part of the criminal conspiracy and is making money himself off of the kidnapping and will probably rule in their favor anyway. Remember this whole thing is a trap that is almost impossible to get out of.

5) During the hearing (hidden trial) what CPS does to trick you into agreeing to not only their new case plan but to all their lies and false acquisitions entered into court (remember they are also rolling you over) is to again hold the carrot over your head. They say that if you agree with them and the new case plan you will get your child back. The case plan is also a diversion to keep you from seeing what fraud is really going on. CPS gives you all sorts of hoops to jump through in your case plan so you do not have time to think about the fraud they are perpetrating against you. Of course, you would do anything to get your child back and so you agree with them. By agreeing with them you voluntarily (unknowingly) agreed to all their lies and false accusations in their status report and essentially pleaded guilty to all charges without a trial. By the time you get to the end of this horror show you have pleaded guilty to every false charge they threw at you and you never got even one chance to get your truth into the court. The never ending case plan game is just the vehicle to dig up more evidence against you, torture you even more and burry you deeper into the CPS trap so they can steal your children for money! That is what it is all about and it is sick and evil and everyone involved is sick and evil.

6) Let’s not forget your attorney. If you have a court appointed attorney you are screwed. This is not even open for debate. They are working for CPS and they are there to make sure you do exactly what CPS wants you to. Their job is to guide you into each trap and make sure you do not get out. They are also psychopaths and are trained to appear to be helping you when in fact they are just leading the lamb to the slaughter. They make sure the lamb feels comfortable and does not suspect what is really going to happen to them at the end until it is too late and they are slaughtered.

7) Are private attorneys any better? In my experience no. There might be a good one out there but I have never seen one. The CPS criminal conspiracy has also shut the door on good attorneys. To practice juvenile law the attorney typically has to be approved by the juvenile court. Of course you can see the problem there. It is the fox guarding the hen house so only qualified attorneys can practice juvenile law meaning that only the psychopathic ones who have no moral values or ethics and are capable of lying and deceiving their clients to lead the lambs to the slaughter get through. To beat CPS you will have to know as much as you can and work with a good attorney. This allows you to get the truth into court and rebut their false allegations so their lies do not get entered into the court. I believe that 90% of the people caught in the CPS trap would get wiped out trying to fight this on their own (Pro Se).

If you want to try and fight CPS yourself go to http://www.donnellyjustice.com and research as much as you can. During the 18 months to 2 years that CPS tortures you, you will be dragged into court many times. Each time CPS gets all their lies into court and you get not one shred of truth into court so at the end you have nothing and CPS has several judgments against you for all sorts of lies and deceptions and CPS takes your children. The real sick thing about this is that CPS and the court have tricked you into voluntarily giving up your children. Yes, you heard that right; voluntarily give up your children. How is this possible? That is crazy! No it is not, it is the truth because you do not know the law and your rights which are few. 


8) NOTE: one of the main frauds of the juvenile court is to allow CPS lies and false allegations to be entered into court and stand as facts on the record making you guilty on all counts. Almost all of the CPS allegations are only hearsay and cannot be entered into evidence in a legitimate court and they are not even signed by CPS under penalty of perjury. However, CPS gets all these lies into the court as facts by tricking you. CPS uses their status reports, where all there lies and false allegations are listed, at each hearing. Then they threaten you that if you do not agree with their new case plan you will lose your children. Of course you agree to get your children back. By agreeing to their new case plan you are also unknowingly agreeing that all the lies in the CPS status report are true. If you find that your own attorney will help you down the path to slaughter by demanding that you agree to the case plan as it is the only way you will get your child back or he will not rebut any of the CPS lies in court letting them stand as facts, fire him and find another one. And not objecting to lie’s will stand as fact in a court. They forgot to tell you that by consenting to their new case plan you were also agreeing that all their other false

allegations and lies in their status report (which you often do not see) were true. All of a sudden the CPS lies and false allegations becomes facts on the record by your agreeing to it all and you are guilty as charged. The truth and your story is gone in a puff of smoke. Another CPS smoke and mirrors deception and trick to slowly steal your rights and eventually your children. They do this slowly over an 18 months to 24 months period because if they tried to do it too fast parents would get wise to their scam and rebel which could make it very messy for them. CPS is in no hurry because they are still getting paid by the feds for everyday they have your children. Besides they want you to break down so they can say they were right and you were a bad parent and your children should be taken away. I guess blaming the parents makes these sickos sleep better at night for all the torture and horrendous destruction of families and children they cause.

9) NOTE: Not all CPS and public employees know what is happening. Many of them are not aware of what they are really doing and are just doing what they are told. In reality, there are probably only a few CPS and court employees and attorneys who really know what is going on. However, this is exactly what the problem is. If a CPS employee that does not know what is really going on can lie, cheat, make false accusation, and do anything they are told to adopt out a child, then that person is a soulless psychopath who has no moral values or human sense of decency and is as guilty as the ones who know what is going on. Ignorance is no excuse. In fact, the real criminals who are running this CPS and court scam actually want these types of people. They can tell them that they are doing the right thing and these people will believe them and can’t tell for themselves that what they are doing is not only wrong but is horrendous and despicable. These types of people are the worst as they are doing wrong and evil activities and think they are right! They are very dangerous and are the same types of people the Nazi’s looked for to be their stooges and informants to carry out their evil plans during WW-II.

10) This is the number one thing you need to know about the American legal and court systems to get your children back. However, you are not going to believe it but until you do you will lose your children. The American legal and court systems are courts of consent only. They are not judicial courts of law. Why? Because the judicial courts have been closed for several years meaning that they have no legal, judicial power or authority because the de facto government where our current courts come from have been bankrupt for years and have no authority or power. What does that mean to you? It means a great deal. First of all, it means that the courts have to get you to agree to do anything. If you do not agree with their charges they cannot proceed.

However, it is just not that simple. The judges, who in reality are just actors in black robes, are trained to do anything they can to deceive, lie, coheres, force you into to consenting. After all, they get a cut of the action. They will threaten you will jail, yell at you, lie to you, etc. They are really good at this because they have gotten away with it for many years. If you do not hold your ground, which might mean spending a few days in jail you will be forced to agree and suffer the consequences. But I have been taught to obey the law and the judge is fair. Wrong! Our system now has nothing to do with fairness. The court is the land of contract and fiction and the judge and the state will try and get you to agree with their contract any way they can. All the laws they throw at you only apply if you agree. They will try to make you think that they are compulsory but they only apply if you agree. Their power only comes from your consent.

11) The first trap to watch for is the plea. If they can get you in court to plea, even not guilty, you have entered their jurisdiction and they have trapped you in their contract. You never enter a plea. You always challenge their jurisdiction and argue that you are a “natural man or woman and they do not have jurisdiction and you do not consent to anything they do”. By doing this, they cannot legally proceed as they did not get your consent. Of course, the judge will threaten you and intimidate and trick you in anyway he can. Just keep repeating the same thing “I am natural man or woman and you do not have jurisdiction and I do not consent to anything you do”. If they pressure you to plea or say they will enter a plea for you just keep repeating “I am natural man or woman and you do not have jurisdiction and I do not consent to anything you do”. Do not sign anything

In a juvenile case at the first hearing do the same thing. Before the first hearing CPS will try and work out a deal (like a plea bargain but with no guarantee) with you where they tell you that the only way you will get your child back is if you agree with their plan. Remember that this is a trick and a lie to get you to agree with them and enter their jurisdiction so they contract with you so they can steal your children with your consent.

Most parents at this point are so upset they will do anything to get their children back. However, do not fall for it!!! Do not sign anything!!! Hold your ground. If you cave in you will lose your children permanently. The odds very low that you will get your child back doing what CPS Says. If they do not give you your child back soon, be prepared to file a Federal complaint against CPS and the county. Remember, the “laws” they are charging you with breaking are unconstitutional color of law frauds and only apply if you agree!!! This is not a joke, this is the truth.

The greatest hidden secret of our legal system is that it can only function by your consent only. That is what our constitution did for us and it is still there but the legal criminals (attorneys, judges, politicians) have done everything they can to hide this fact. Never consent to anything!!!! It will always be a trap. (jail, no parental rights all because they tricked you into voluntarily consenting)

12) If you are in a CPS case and have already fallen for the CPS scam and agreed to their case plan and consented to their contract it is harder to get out. Talk to an attorney at this point and see if he can do damage control. If you are pro se, it is possible to pull the plug on them at any hearing. Remember, the hearings are where they roll you over into a new case and contract. It is at this point, where you can stop agreeing with them. This is more complicated and you will have to know more about the law and what is happening. Essentially the termination of your agreement consists revoking your signature and consent, firing your attorney and filing a complaint into the Federal Court against CPS and the County for kidnapping, criminal conspiracy, mail fraud, extortion, fraud, etc. CPS will not be happy with this so be prepared to be attacked from all sides. Remember, do not consent to anything!!!

 

Now, here is the problem. The so called judicial system has become so corrupt that the scam, the lies, the falsehoods, their bogus system of plunder have now become the law because no one knows the difference. This means that even if you know the law and see the judicial scam it will do you no good as the [judges] actors just ignore the law and do what they want and their is nothing you can do about it. For example, if you do not sign any CPS agreements or if you signed their agreements and discover their fraud and withdraw your agreement with them by law their is no contract and they have no case. However that means nothing to these criminals as they will just ignore the law and proceed to steal your children anyway. If you do not sign the CPS agreements the judge will just make an order that you have signed and continue to railroad you. IN OTHER WORDS UNDER OUR CURRENT FRAUDULENT LEGAL SYSTEM THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO UPHOLD YOUR RIGHTS. WHY? BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS AND ARE NOTHING MORE THAN A SLAVE TO THE GOVERNMENT AND YOU WILL DO WHAT THEY TELL YOU OR THEY WILL FORCE YOU TO DO IT!!

 The law is so corrupt that once you are entrapped in the CPS child stealing system there is no legal way out as the CPS criminals has placed itself above the law. If you are going to get out you will need a good attorney. If you are a minority use the racial and discrimination claims to pressure CPS and use a Minority group like the NAACP attorneys to fight your case. Make sure your attorney is actually building a case for you by going to trial and rebutting the CPS lies. If he does not do this then he is working for CPS.

Your last hope might be getting the judge on the hook. If you have built a case by going to trial and getting facts upon the record the judge knows that you can appeal. This means that he will be more careful about his judgment as if it gets reviewed by higher courts he is on the hook. The typical CPS trick is to keep you from having any record on the court at all. Then when they finally steal your children you cannot appeal as you have no case except the CPS case you signed which sais you are a scum bag parent that you signed even though it was a lie because they promised you, you would get your children back if you did. Guess what? They lie!!!

Believe everything I tell you here or not makes no difference it still exist. I have done the research and I know beyond any doubt everything I have told you here is true. After you finish the rest of this article remember it, print it and research everything, learn this for your self, Most of my family doesn’t believe me by this point either but my sister has been forced to listen to all this crap on a daily, weekly, monthly basis, and my wife as well but she does her own research and gives it back to me. We have become a force to deal with and CPS is in for a real treat because we are ready to take this into a civil court and show them just how far down the rabbit hole we have gone.This is a fact that you need to know to understand why the CPS Criminal court exists. The government has tricked all Americans into becoming corporate citizens by the Social security contract forced upon us. This is the same fund that pays CPS through title IV E funding to steal your children It was originally voluntary but has been mandatory for many years.

As a corporate government employee you are no longer a real man or woman legally. Therefore, as a legal fiction entity you no longer have any constitutional rights and the government literally legally owns you and everything you have including your children. The fraud goes even farther. When you got your marriage license you actually formed a legal partnership with you and your spouse and the state. The state being part of the marriage contract has ownership of you children and can come in any time they want and take your children.

Of course you never saw this language on the license application because like Social Security they are adhesion contracts that are never seen but are enforced by the government when they want. Therefore, CPS believes that they own your children and can take them any time they want. They use bogus abuse charges as a cover for their child stealing. Since the fraudulent law is on their side there is nothing that can be done. To stop CPS child stealing would require the government to do it. They have no interest in stopping it as they make too much money off of child stealing. In a nut shell, our state and federal governments have been hijacked by a impostor commercial corporation posing as the U.S. government.

These private corporations are here to plunder the people any way they can. At the present time they are stealing our homes and children. This has to be the greatest fraud in the history of the world all being perpetrated right under the noses of the American people who have no idea it is even happening. It is the giant redistribution of wealth into the hands of a few elitists who will them rule the people as slaves which is now already set up by law. Remember the constitution does not apply to us as we are legally not humans any longer thanks the the government attorneys. Read the patriot act. Another example of the fraud involved with our current government is the Federal Reserve which is in control of the country money.

It is neither federal or a reserve. It is a private banking cartel who controls our money and who are now running this country into the ground so the elite bankers can pick up the pieces for pennies on the dollar. Oh, lets no forget the IRS which is really a United Nations Trust trust that goes to unknown European bankers and none of the tax money goes to our government. All this can be researched on the internet. We have and are being ripped off big time!!! Unfortunately, you and your children are just fodder for the giant government corruption machine who are converting you, your children and your assets into to their money and leaving you as a dependent slave in their control. Good Luck!!!

If you challenge the court to jurisdiction will not work as the judge will just ignore it as his court is a scam anyway. Therefore, I now feel that if there is any hope to get out of the CPS trap you or a good attorney will need to fight your case and get as many facts on the record as possible by going to trial on every issue. This does 2 major things. 1.) It gets the truth on the record and rebuts the CPS lies thereby creating a strong case for you and a weak case for CPS

2.)it puts the judge on the hook as his decision you will be appealing to a higher court. Therefore, he will be more careful in his judgments based on the facts not CPS lies. The strongest point I have to drive home and this is so true that if there is just one thing you get from this report remember this. I have heard it over and over by my wife and every attorney under the sun.

If you do not object in court to any statement that is untrue, false, fabricated, untrue, misleading, out of context, exaggerated, planted by astronauts, and the Martians repeated it but it is untrue, it will be excepted as fact if you do not object. If your lawyer doesn’t object then you better do it or suffer the consequences. If there is one time in your life to grow a pair it is now, I am sorry for my attitude here but this is one of the most important lessons I have ever learned about court. Many people suffer for life because they didn’t know this one important fact.

I love children and everything about the family, I hold these courts in the highest contempt possible one of Gods rule. These judges are stealing a child away from the home God has placed them for greed. The family has always been the fondest memories of my life time and I have the hardest time thinking my child will no have these memories and I am all screwed up inside about this. I am having such a conflict inside myself it is unreal what to do. And I think you know what I mean.

There is still point here these courts have been getting away with this destroying families for money for so long that they just don’t care about anyone’s life anymore, if they don’t see there are consequences for this they will continue to destroy lives until the generations of tomorrow are even worse because no one today cared enough to do anything about it today. There is only way to truly end this screwed up court corrupt system and that is for every American to fucking wake up and say enough is enough and stop paying Taxes period because or country is feeding off the sale of our children and destroying the family.

Email me please and do your part and your duty for these children, we need all your help to end this. Have everyone read this. PASS IT ON.

 PART 2 INCLUDES THE ACTUAL FBI INVESTIGATION INTO THE CPS AGENCY WHICH WILL SCARE THE HECK OUT EVERY PARENT. THIS WILL BE PUBLISHED SOON.

CPS an investigation into the business of legal kidnapping


This article if you care about the future of this country and our children than PLEASE PLEASE tell everyone you know to watch this video, this investigation into CPS and the cover up  the number of children missing and kidnapped has grown 10 times in the last five years. People if we continue to let this problem continue like this than we have no future. Watch and Listen PLEASE, I WANT THIS TO END AND UNLESS EVERYONE KNOWS what is truly going on then WE HAVE NO CHANCE OF EVER SAVING OUR CHILDREN. The number of children that disappeared from California and Florida alone could fill a school of over 5000 just from last year alone and this is being covered up. Please wake up !

It is up to us to do something about this problem because the problem of Rogue Social Workers is allowed to grow unabated because of the money it provides for state agencies. It is now up to us and now it is up to you. If you have a child today then you risk losing that child to this government kidnapping.

Kentucky News Not Afraid of CPS


This news station found that CPS had an injunction against news stations reporting the criminal actions of CPS against families so they followed their journalism ethics oath by petitioning the court to lift that injunction and they succeeded. WLKY Target Investigates has been faithfully reporting and informing the public of CPS abuses since 2006. MORE JOURNALISTS AND NEWS STATIONS SHOULD FOLLOW SUIT AND REPORT WHAT FAMILIES ARE GOING THROUGH-WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU? DO YOU NOT KNOW WHAT IS THE RIGHT THING TO DO?

CPS Reported background checks of California Social Workers


I will continue to update this,  It is time to put out the trash.
Drug possession, domestic violence, repeatedly driving drunk, assault with a deadly weapon – any one of these charges or convictions could lead child protective services workers to remove children from a home or force a parent into counseling.
But all of those crimes  Child Protective Services, A review of the agency’s 969 workers employed as of Oct. 1 found that at least 68 individuals – 7 percent of the work force – have criminal records in Sacramento County alone. The number is likely to be even higher because some names were too common to retrieve all criminal complaints linked to them, and records in other counties were not searched.
Although the county child protection agency has a policy to perform criminal background checks on prospective employees – and says it is alerted by the state if a current employee is arrested – the ranks at CPS include offenders convicted of such crimes as possession of heroin for sale, theft, embezzlement, spousal abuse, obstructing an officer, prostitution and identity theft.
One county worker who was a receptionist at two CPS offices is a registered sex offender. One social worker has a pending court case over claims that she harassed her neighbors with laser beams and obscene tirades. A family service worker was charged in August with stealing gas from a county pump.
CPS Director Laura Coulthard and her boss at the county, Lynn Frank, declined to be interviewed. But The Bee’s examination prompted Coulthard to issue two memos to agency employees in the past month, warning that their names and criminal histories might be published.
Neither she nor other top county officials would discuss their policies for deciding what kind of criminal background would preclude someone from being hired or when and why exceptions are made.
CPS workers are entrusted with Sacramento’s most vulnerable residents: abused and neglected children, living in broken families. These workers are charged with passing judgment on parents’ fitness. They testify under oath, serving as the eyes and ears of the juvenile court system.
“Just because they don’t carry a gun doesn’t mean they don’t exercise extraordinary power over children and families,” said William Grimm, an attorney at the Oakland-based National Center for Youth Law. “Forcing them to adhere to the highest level of conduct seems legitimate to me.”
Some Sacramento CPS employees’ arrests date back years, while others are current. Some committed serious crimes while working for the agency but remained on the job for months and even years – sometimes on paid leave.
Among The Bee’s findings:
• Six CPS family service workers who go into people’s homes to help families have been convicted or face charges of drug possession, theft, embezzlement or possession of heroin for sale.
• Many of the convictions are for driving under the influence and reckless driving, including 15 workers who have close contact with children and families. Some of their jobs require them to transport children to safe locations, often in the middle of the night. Three CPS social workers have multiple DUI convictions, including one arrested three times between 1999 and 2005.
• At least 17 CPS office assistants who handle sensitive case files have faced some of the most serious charges, including spousal abuse, illegal weapons possession, witness tampering, failure to provide for a child, identity theft, grand theft, embezzlement of county resources, welfare fraud, injury to a spouse and obstructing an officer.
• Repeated arrests – even for violence – do not appear to be an automatic impediment to CPS employment. One office worker employed since 2001 faces spousal abuse charges in a pending case and has previous arrests for DUI, gambling, spousal abuse and witness tampering, court documents state. A police report taken in that worker’s 1993 spousal abuse case states that “he admitted association with the Sacramento Blood Brothers, which is a violent gang.”
• One worker, who prepares legal documents for children and families in crisis, faced charges between 1994 and 2000 that included two DUIs, assault with a deadly weapon, spousal abuse, theft and check fraud. She was hired in 2000, the same year she faced felony charges of forgery, fraud and methamphetamine possession.
Advocate stunned
Criminal background checks for public and private employees are increasingly common, raising questions of fairness, privacy and the notion of rehabilitation.
And hundreds of CPS workers stay clean and do their jobs well, propping up fragile families and venturing into the toughest neighborhoods.
But one prominent child advocate believes the arrest histories uncovered by The Bee suggest deeply systemic problems.
“My sense is that this is the result of a leadership vacuum at CPS and a failure to demand accountability among the workers,” said Robert Wilson, executive director of Sacramento Child Advocates, whose attorneys represent children in dependency court.
One 36-year-old Sacramento mother, whose two children were removed from her care by CPS, said she is outraged that some agency workers have criminal pasts – yet may be in a position to testify against parents like her.
“I’m very angry,” said Desiree McCarthy, whose 6- and 14-year-old kids were taken amid allegations of drug use. McCarthy denies abusing illegal drugs but said she has struggled with prescription painkillers, and the aftereffects of head surgery.
“I think this is a disgrace – an outrage,” she said. “The bottom line is, they’re hypocrites.”
The Bee’s study of workers’ criminal histories stems from its ongoing investigation of problems at CPS, which began 18 months ago and has sparked a county grand jury investigation and an independent, county-ordered audit.
While investigating the death of a 3-year-old girl who died after being under CPS’ watch, The Bee found that the social worker in the case had problems of her own.
That social worker, Alexis Hince, said she believes her brushes with the law were an asset to the agency, helping her relate better to clients.
“I related to my clients in such a way that it is more than book knowledge or resource-related,” she said.
Hince was assigned to what became one of the agency’s most controversial cases last year, in which 3-year-old Valeeya Brazile was beaten to death after her CPS case was closed.
Valeeya’s mother and her mother’s boyfriend face charges in the death of the girl, who suffered a series of suspicious injuries before the fatal beating. Court records obtained by The Bee indicate Hince failed to report those injuries to the court or to the girl’s court-appointed attorney.
A review of Superior Court files shows Hince’s problems began before she was hired by the agency – and continued.
She was charged in 2000 with failing to report all her income and receiving overpayments of $7,509 in food stamps and welfare. She pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor and received probation, court records show.
CPS hired Hince in January 2005. A year later, she again was charged with welfare fraud stemming from payments received in 2002 and 2003. She pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors and was ordered to repay $6,368.
In that case, Hince was accused of taking money from Child Action, a program that administers child care subsidies to needy families – and is often recommended by CPS to its struggling families.
In January, a Sacramento judge dismissed the cases.
Hince, 35, said she was never asked about the 2000 case when she was hired and that she didn’t have to disclose it because it did not involve a felony conviction.
“The reality is, the department does background checks,” she said, “they were aware of my background and I would even go as far as saying my ability to be able to relate to the clients we serve is very important.”
Hince said she was never disciplined for her work at CPS, but added that she has been on paid leave since Oct. 2, the day a Bee story about her handling of Valeeya’s case appeared. She said she never was told why she was placed on leave, and that her superiors had told her not to talk to The Bee.
“If it’s your desire to create change, social workers are not the problem,” Hince said. “Your targets should be upper management, the courts, the Board of Supervisors.”
Linked to prison drugs
Hince was not the only social worker charged with a crime while employed by the agency.

Another CPS social worker remains on the job after being convicted in El Dorado County for violating court orders that she stay away from neighbors she had allegedly harassed since 1999 with tirades, laser beams and other abuse.
Cynthia Lee Quinn was accused of harassing one family by “constantly flipping they and their friends off, repeatedly making obscene telephone calls, training a laser pointer or sight from a gun onto victims, videotaping victims, shining lights into the interior of the (victim’s) residence” and videotaping them, according to El Dorado Superior Court documents.
Her actions, which allegedly included repeatedly placing nails in one family’s driveway, continued despite restraining orders issued by the court, the documents indicate.
Sacramento CPS eventually found itself involved with the El Dorado County case. One family that moved to escape the harassment reported that six months later, Sacramento CPS workers came to their new home investigating an anonymous report that they “were beating their young daughter in the front yard,” court documents state.
“It should be noted that Defendant QUINN was at that time and is still, employed by the agency as a Family Maintenance Social Worker,” the records state.
Prosecutor Gloria Mas said she believes that Quinn, 49, was responsible for the call to CPS, adding that the social worker had sent angry letters to people using a Sacramento CPS fax machine. Quinn received probation in the original case, but Mas said she filed a petition in court Feb. 27 to revoke it.
Quinn, who could not be reached for comment, contended in court documents that she was the victim of harassment by neighbors who shouted at her and annoyed animals living on her property. She claimed that sheriff’s deputies were “rude and belligerent.”
Histories alarm colleagues
Some criminal histories uncovered in The Bee’s review of hundreds of court files are years old. Most of the older misdemeanors have been purged from county files, while other records show that defendants later returned to court, proved to a judge they had been rehabilitated and had the original charges dismissed.
Even after such dismissals, legal experts say applicants for public jobs or licensure by a state or local agency must reveal past convictions, if asked.
Within the agency, some workers expressed alarm about their co-workers’ pasts – and, in one instance, a 23-year-old case expunged in 1997 generated concern.
Until early this year, families arriving at Sacramento’s Child Protective Services office on Power Inn Road were greeted in the waiting area by receptionist Sandra Diane Queen, who is registered on the state’s Megan’s Law Web site as a sex offender with a conviction for lewd and lascivious behavior with a child under 14.
The roomy waiting area often is packed with children, playing on colorful wooden-bead tables while families await classes or meetings.
A CPS employee, who contacted in January after learning of Queen’s background, said her listing on the Megan’s Law site became known around the office last year and was particularly upsetting to social workers.
The county’s solution was to move Queen to the front reception desk in the administrative offices on East Parkway, which house Coulthard and Lynn Frank, director of the county Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees CPS.
In her new location, the 52-year-old county worker assigned to CPS continued to be among the first people members of the public met.
Court records show that Queen, then known as Sandra Diane Williams, pleaded guilty in Sacramento Superior Court on Sept. 16, 1986, to a felony count involving sexual acts with a child and was sentenced to a year in jail and four years of probation.
She petitioned the court in 1995 to declare the offense a misdemeanor to help her find work and to acknowledge that she had been rehabilitated.
Friends, co-workers and fellow church members wrote letters testifying to her good character, while the District Attorney’s Office and probation department opposed the move.
The court approved her motion in June 1997, records indicate. However, she still must register with law enforcement as a convicted sex offender.
Queen, who declined to comment, does not face restrictions on where she can live or on contact with minors.
A CPS spokeswoman acknowledged Queen’s employment with the county since December 2007 but pointed out that she is an assistant for the Office of the Director and technically not a CPS employee.
Criminal checks not uniform
Office assistants at CPS are on the county’s list of positions subject to criminal history checks. That list includes other obvious positions, such as family service workers and social workers who have daily contact with children.
But the county’s policy allows each department discretion in deciding whether a conviction “will affect the applicant’s or employee’s qualification for the position” – or whether it can “be disregarded on the basis of mitigating circumstances.”
Before coming to CPS, office assistant Brian Matthew Foster, 40, worked with a company that contracts with the county to run community service programs for defendants.
Court documents allege that while in that job, Foster took cash payments from defendants, entered a lower amount in the books, then pocketed the difference.
He also offered to complete documents showing defendants had completed community service hours – even if they had not – in exchange for payments, the documents allege.
An investigator’s statement filed in court says more than $38,000 was lost in the scam, which ended when Foster called in sick and his replacement discovered the alleged ruse.
Hired at CPS in July 2000 while his case was being investigated, Foster ultimately pleaded no contest to a felony count in 2002 and was sentenced to 120 days in jail.
Contacted by The Bee, Foster denied the allegations and blamed clerical errors rather than criminal intent.
“It was more like it was an error in putting the paperwork in the wrong place,” he said.
Foster was ordered to pay more than $18,000 in restitution, documents state. He said he repaid the money and has had no other legal problems.
In 2005, a Sacramento judge agreed Foster had fulfilled the requirements of his sentence and dismissed the case.

CPS emergency worker and foster mom fired for numerous abuses


Child Protective Services investigator fired because she abused children in her foster home, used a county car to commute to work each day and counted the commutes on her time card, records show.

As The Bee reported earlier this year, the county hired Blancho Brumfield as an emergency response investigator in 2004, when she was under scrutiny by the California Department of Social Services for abuse reports at her Vallejo foster home.

In January of this year, one of Brumfield’s former foster children called the county to say she shouldn’t be working with children. The county placed Brumfield on administrative leave and launched an investigation.

The investigation raises a number of questions about the county’s hiring of Brumfield and how it responded to the news about her background. The Bee obtained a copy of the investigation through a California Public Records Act request.

Brumfield was fired July 31. In its letter to Brumfield explaining the decision, the county cited an investigation by the Department of Social Services that was completed in 2005.

The department interviewed five of Brumfield’s former foster children, and upheld allegations that she and her husband locked children in a garage without food or water for long periods, encouraged the children to fight and ridiculed them by saying things such as they were foster children because no one loved them, records state.

In its dismissal letter, the county cited its own investigation, which found that Blancho Brumfield stole public funds by using a county car to get to and from her CPS job each day and by including the commutes on her timecard. Her actions, both violations of county policy, cost the county about $35,000 in the two years reviewed, records state.

Brumfield did not return messages from The Bee. According to county records, she admitted using county vehicles to get to and from work and marking commutes as work time.

She denied at least some of the abuse allegations and tried to submit an old psychological exam of a former foster child to try to discredit his story. The county said she violated privacy law and ethical standards by doing so, and noted that she didn’t dispute the state’s findings when she lost her foster care license.

Brumfield is “not taking responsibility for her actions and continues to blame the child,” a hearing officer wrote in a review of the case, adding that a request by her union representative to consider a child’s state of mind was “outrageous.”

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

99.6 % of Children in Foster Care are Mistreated


I found an interesting report straight from the Riverside County Clerk of the  Board of Supervisors that proves that more children are mistreated in FOSTER CARE than with their parents! What is the point of CPS then? . CPS is all about the individuals having job security, increasing government interference with our lives and just down right control of the population. People don’t know this, how do we get this information out there?

Senator Nancy Schaefer’s Investigation into The Corrupt Business of Child Protective Services


 

Senator Nancy Schaefer’s Investigation into The Corrupt Business of Child Protective Services

By: Nancy Schaefer
Senator, 50th District

From the legislative desk of Senator Nancy Schaefer

My introduction into child protective service cases was due to a grandmother in an adjoining state who called me with her tragic story. Her two granddaughters had been taken from her daughter who lived in my district. Her daughter was told wrongly that if she wanted to see her children again she should sign a paper and give up her children. Frightened and young, the daughter did. I have since discovered that parents are often threatened into cooperation of permanent separation of their children.

The children were taken to another county and placed in foster care. The foster parents were told wrongly that they could adopt the children. The grandmother then jumped through every hoop known to man in order to get her granddaughters. When the case finally came to court it was made evident by one of the foster parent‘s children that the foster parents had, at any given time, 18 foster children and that the foster mother had an inappropriate relationship with the caseworkers.

In the courtroom, the juvenile judge, acted as though she was shocked and said the two girls would be removed quickly. They were not removed. Finally, after much pressure being applied to the Department of Family and Children Services of Georgia (DFCS), the children were driven to South Georgia to meet their grandmother who gladly drove to meet them.

After being with their grandmother two or three days, the judge, quite out of the blue, wrote up a new order to send the girls to their father, who previously had no interest in the case and who lived on the West Coast. The father was in “adult entertainment”. His girlfriend worked as an “escort” and his brother, who also worked in the business, had a sexual charge brought against him.

Within a couple of days the father was knocking on the grandmother’s door and took the girls kicking and screaming to California.

The father developed an unusual relationship with the former foster parents and soon moved back to the southeast, and the foster parents began driving to the father’s residence and picking up the little girls for visits. The oldest child had told her mother and grandmother on two different occasions that the foster father molested her.

To this day after five years, this loving, caring blood relative grandmother does not even have visitation privileges with the children. The little girls are in my opinion permanently traumatized and the young mother of the girls was so traumatized with shock when the girls were first removed from her that she has not recovered.

Throughout this case and through the process of dealing with multiple other mismanaged cases of the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS), I have worked with other desperate parents and children across the state because they have no rights and no one with whom to turn. I have witnessed ruthless behavior from many caseworkers, social workers, investigators, lawyers, judges, therapists, and others such as those who “pick up” the children. I have been stunned by what I have seen and heard from victims all over the state of Georgia.

// //

In this report, I am focusing on the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS). However, I believe Child Protective Services nationwide has become corrupt and that the entire system is broken almost beyond repair. I am convinced parents and families should be warned of the dangers.

The Department of Child Protective Services, known as the Department of Family and Children Service (DFCS) in Georgia and other titles in other states, has become a “protected empire” built on taking children and separating families. This is not to say that there are not those children who do need to be removed from wretched situations and need protection. This report is concerned with the children and parents caught up in “legal kidnapping,” ineffective policies, and DFCS who do does not remove a child or children when a child is enduring torment and abuse. (See Exhibit A and Exhibit B)

In one county in my District, I arranged a meeting for thirty-seven families to speak freely and without fear. These poor parents and grandparents spoke of their painful, heart wrenching encounters with DFCS. Their suffering was overwhelming. They wept and cried. Some did not know where their children were and had not seen them in years. I had witnessed the “Gestapo” at work and I witnessed the deceitful conditions under which children were taken in the middle of the night, out of hospitals, off of school buses, and out of homes. In one county a private drug testing business was operating within the DFCS department that required many, many drug tests from parents and individuals for profit. In another county children were not removed when they were enduring the worst possible abuse.

Due to being exposed, several employees in a particular DFCS office were fired. However, they have now been rehired either in neighboring counties or in the same county again. According to the calls I am now receiving, the conditions in that county are returning to the same practices that they had before the light was shown on their deeds.

Having worked with probably 300 cases statewide, I am convinced there is no responsibility and no accountability in the system.

I have come to the conclusion:

  • that poor parents often times are targeted to lose their children because they do not have the where-with-all to hire lawyers and fight the system. Being poor does not mean you are not a good parent or that you do not love your child, or that your child should be removed and placed with strangers;
  • that all parents are capable of making mistakes and that making a mistake does not mean your children are always to be removed from the home. Even if the home is not perfect, it is home; and that’s where a child is the safest and where he or she wants to be, with family;
  • that parenting classes, anger management classes, counseling referrals, therapy classes and on and on are demanded of parents with no compassion by the system even while they are at work and while their children are separated from them. This can take months or even years and it emotionally devastates both children and parents. Parents are victimized by “the system” that makes a profit for holding children longer and “bonuses” for not returning children;
  • that caseworkers and social workers are oftentimes guilty of fraud. They withhold evidence. They fabricate evidence and they seek to terminate parental rights. However, when charges are made against them, the charges are ignored;
  • that the separation of families is growing as a business because local governments have grown accustomed to having taxpayer dollars to balance their ever-expanding budgets;
  • that Child Protective Service and Juvenile Court can always hide behind a confidentiality clause in order to protect their decisions and keep the funds flowing. There should be open records and “court watches”! Look who is being paid! There are state employees, lawyers, court investigators, court personnel, and judges. There are psychologists, and psychiatrists, counselors, caseworkers, therapists, foster parents, adoptive parents, and on and on. All are looking to the children in state custody to provide job security. Parents do not realize that social workers are the glue that holds “the system” together that funds the court, the child’s attorney, and the multiple other jobs including DFCS’s attorney.
  • that The Adoption and the Safe Families Act, set in motion by President Bill Clinton, offered cash “bonuses” to the states for every child they adopted out of foster care. In order to receive the “adoption incentive bonuses” local child protective services need more children. They must have merchandise (children) that sell and you must have plenty of them so the buyer can choose. Some counties are known to give a $4,000 bonus for each child adopted and an additional $2,000 for a “special needs” child. Employees work to keep the federal dollars flowing;
  • that there is double dipping. The funding continues as long as the child is out of the home. When a child in foster care is placed with a new family then “adoption bonus funds” are available. When a child is placed in a mental health facility and is on 16 drugs per day, like two children of a constituent of mine, more funds are involved;
  • that there are no financial resources and no real drive to unite a family and help keep them together;
  • that the incentive for social workers to return children to their parents quickly after taking them has disappeared and who in protective services will step up to the plate and say, “This must end! No one, because they are all in the system together and a system with no leader and no clear policies will always fail the children. Look at the waste in government that is forced upon the tax payer;
  • that the “Policy Manuel” is considered “the last word” for DFCS. However, it is too long, too confusing, poorly written and does not take the law into consideration;
  • that if the lives of children were improved by removing them from their homes, there might be a greater need for protective services, but today all children are not always safer. Children, of whom I am aware, have been raped and impregnated in foster care and the head of a Foster Parents Association in my District was recently arrested because of child molestation;
  • that some parents are even told if they want to see their children or grandchildren, they must divorce their spouse. Many, who are under privileged, feeling they have no option, will divorce and then just continue to live together. This is an anti-family policy, but parents will do anything to get their children home with them.
  • fathers, (non-custodial parents) I must add, are oftentimes treated as criminals without access to their own children and have child support payments strangling the very life out of them;
  • that the Foster Parents Bill of Rights does not bring out that a foster parent is there only to care for a child until the child can be returned home. Many Foster Parents today use the Foster Parent Bill of Rights to hire a lawyer and seek to adopt the child from the real parents, who are desperately trying to get their child home and out of the system;
  • that tax dollars are being used to keep this gigantic system afloat, yet the victims, parents, grandparents, guardians and especially the children, are charged for the system’s services.
  • that grandparents have called from all over the State of Georgia trying to get custody of their grandchildren. DFCS claims relatives are contacted, but there are cases that prove differently. Grandparents who lose their grandchildren to strangers have lost their own flesh and blood. The children lose their family heritage and grandparents, and parents too, lose all connections to their heirs.
  • that The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect in 1998 reported that six times as many children died in foster care than in the general public and that once removed to official “safety”, these children are far more likely to suffer abuse, including sexual molestation than in the general population.
  • That according to the California Little Hoover Commission Report in 2003, 30% to 70% of the children in California group homes do not belong there and should not have been removed from their homes.

Final Remarks

On my desk are scores of cases of exhausted families and troubled children. It has been beyond me to turn my back on these suffering, crying, and sometimes beaten down individuals. We are mistreating the most innocent. Child Protective Services have become adult centered to the detriment of children. No longer is judgment based on what the child needs or who the child wants to be with or what is really best for the whole family; it is some adult or bureaucrat who makes the decisions, based often on just hearsay, without ever consulting a family member, or just what is convenient, profitable, or less troublesome for a director of DFCS.

I have witnessed such injustice and harm brought to these families that I am not sure if I even believe reform of the system is possible! The system cannot be trusted. It does not serve the people. It obliterates families and children simply because it has the power to do so.

Children deserve better. Families deserve better. It’s time to pull back the curtain and set our children and families free.

Recommendations

  1. Call for an independent audit of the Department of Family and Children’s Services (DFCS) to expose corruption and fraud.
  2. Activate immediate change. Every day that passes means more families and children are subject to being held hostage.
  3. End the financial incentives that separate families.
  4. Grant to parents their rights in writing.
  5. Mandate a search for family members to be given the opportunity to adopt their own relatives.
  6. Mandate a jury trial where every piece of evidence is presented before removing a child from his or her parents.
  7. Require a warrant or a positive emergency circumstance before removing children from their parents. (Judge Arthur G. Christean, Utah Bar Journal, January, 1997 reported that “except in emergency circumstances, including the need for immediate medical care, require warrants upon affidavits of probable cause before entry upon private property is permitted for the forcible removal of children from their parents.”)
  8. Uphold the laws when someone fabricates or presents false evidence. If a parent alleges fraud, hold a hearing with the right to discovery of all evidence.

Jeremy’s Story

(Some names withheld due to future hearings.)

As told to Senator Nancy Schaefer by Sandra (Xxxx), a foster parent of Jeremy for 2 ½ years.

My husband and I received Jeremy when he was 2-weeks-old and we have been the only parents he has really ever known. He lived with us for 27-months. (Xxxx) is the grandfather of Jeremy, and he is known for molesting his own children, for molesting Jeremy and has been court ordered not to be around Jeremy. (Xxxx) is the mother of Jeremy, who has been diagnosed to be mentally ill, and also is known to have molested Jeremy. (Xxxx) and Jeremy’s uncle is a registered sex offender and (Xxxx) is the biological father, who is a drug addict and alcoholic and who continues to be in and out of jail. Having just described Jeremy’s world, all of these adults are not to be any part of Jeremy’s life, yet for years DFCS has known that they are.

DFCS had to test (Xxxx) (the grandfather) and his son (Xxxx) (the uncle) and (Xxxx) to determine the real father. (Xxxx) is the biological father although any of them might have been. In court, it appeared from the case study, that everyone involved knew that this little boy had been molested by family members, even by his own mother, (Xxxx). In court, (XXX), the mother of Jeremy, admitted to having had sex with (Xxxx) (the grandfather) and (Xxxx) (her own brother) that morning. Judge (Xxxx) and DFCS gave Jeremy to his grandmother that same day. (Xxxx), the grandmother, is over 300 lbs., is unable to drive, and is unable to take care of Jeremy due to physical problems. She also has been in a mental hospital several times due to her behavior.

Even though it was ordered by the court that the grandfather (Xxxx), the uncle (Xxxx) (a convicted sex offender), (Xxxx) his mother who molested him and (Xxxx) his biological father, a convicted drug addict, were not to have anything to do with the child, they all continue to come and go as they please at (Xxxx address), where Jeremy has been “sentenced to live” for years. This residence has no bathroom and little heat. The front door and the windows are boarded. This home should have been condemned years ago. I have been in this home. No child should ever have to live like this or with such people.

Jeremy was taken from us at age 2 ½ years after (Xxxx) obtained attorney (Xxxx), who was the same attorney who represented him in a large settlement from an auto accident. I am told, that attorney (Xxxx), as grandfather’s attorney, is known to have repeatedly gotten (Xxxx) off of several criminal charges in White County. This is a matter of record and is known by many in White County. I have copies of some records. (Xxxx grandfather), through (Xxxx attorney’s) work, got (Xxxx), the grandmother of Jeremy, legal custody of Jeremy. (Xxxx grandfather) who cannot read or write also got his daughter (Xxxx) and son (Xxxx) diagnosed by government agencies as mentally ill. (Xxxx grandfather), through legal channels, has taken upon himself all control of the family and is able to take possession of any government funding coming to these people.

It was during this time that Jeremy was to have a six-month transitional period between (Xxxx grandmother) and my family as we were to give him up. The court ordered agreement was to have been 4-days at our house and 3-days at (Xxxx grandmother). DFCS stopped the visits within 2-weeks. The reason given by DFCS was the child was too traumatized going back and forth. In truth, Jeremy begged us and screamed never to be taken back to (Xxxx) his grandmother’s house, which we have on video.

We, as a family, have seen Jeremy in stores time to time with (Xxxx grandmother) and the very people he is not to be around. At each meeting Jeremy continues to run to us wherever he sees us and it is clear he is suffering. This child is in a desperate situation and this is why I am writing, and begging you Senator Schaefer, to do something in this child’s behalf. Jeremy can clearly describe in detail his sexual molestation by every member of this family and this sexual abuse continues to this day.

When Jeremy was 5 years of age I took him to Dr. (Xxxx) of Habersham County who did indeed agree that Jeremy’s rectum was black and blue and the physical damage to the child was clearly a case of sexual molestation.

Early in Jeremy’s life, when he was in such bad physical condition, we took him to Egleston Children Hospital where at two-months of age therapy was to begin three times a week. DFCS decided that the (Xxxx grandparent family) should participate in his therapy. However, the therapist complained over and over that the (Xxxx grandparent family) would not even wash their hands and would cause Jeremy to cry during these sessions. (Xxxx the grandmother), after receiving custody no longer allowed the therapy because it was an inconvenience. The therapist reported that this would be a terrible thing to do to this child. Therapy was stopped and it was detrimental to the health of Jeremy.

During (Xxxx grandmother) custody, (Xxxx uncle) has shot Jeremy with a BB gun and there is a report at (Xxxx) County Sheriff’s office. There are several amber alerts at Cornelia Wal-Mart, Commerce Wal-Mart, and a 911 report from (Xxxx) County Sheriff’s Department when Jeremy was lost. (Xxxx grandmother), to teach Jeremy a lesson, took thorn bush limbs and beat the bottoms of his feet. Jeremy’s feet got infected and his feet had to be lanced by Dr. (Xxxx). Then Judy called me to pick him up after about 4-days to take back him to the doctor because of intense pain. I took Jeremy to Dr. (Xxxx) in Gainesville. Dr. (Xxxx) said surgery was needed immediately and a cast was added. After returning home, (Xxxx), his grandfather and (Xxxx), his uncle, took him into the hog lot and allowed him to walk in the filth.

Jeremy’s feet became so infected for a 2nd time that he was again taken back to Dr. (Xxxx) and the hospital. No one in the hospital could believe this child’s living conditions.

Jeremy is threatened to keep quiet and not say anything to anyone. I have videos, reports, arrest records and almost anything you might need to help Jeremy.

Please call my husband, Wendell, or I at any time.
Sandra and (Xxxx) husband (Xxxx)

Exhibit B

Failure of DFCS to remove six desperate children

A brief report regarding six children that Habersham County DFCS director failed to remove as disclosed to Senator Nancy Schaefer by Sheriff Deray Fincher of Habersham County.

Sheriff Deray Fincher, Chief of Police Don Ford and Chief Investigator Lt. Greg Bowen Chief called me to meet with them immediately, which I did on Tuesday, October 16, 2007

Sheriff Fincher, after contacting the Director of Habersham County DFCS several times to remove six children from being horribly abused, finally had to get a court order to remove the children himself with the help of two police officers.

The children, four boys and two girls, were not just being abused; they were being tortured by a monster father.

The six children and a live in girl friend were terrified of this man, the abuser. The children never slept in a bed, but always on the floor. The place where they lived was unfit for human habitation.

The father on one occasion hit one of the boys across his head with a bat and cut the boy’s head open. The father then proceeded to hold the boy down and sew up the child’s head with a needle and red thread. However, even with beatings and burnings, this is only a fraction of what the father did to these children and to the live-in girlfriend.

Sheriff Fincher has pictures of the abuse and condition of one of the boys and at the writing of this report, he has the father in jail in Habersham County.

It should be noted that when the DFCS director found out that Sheriff Fincher was going to remove the children, she called the father and warned him to flee.

This is not the only time this DFCS director failed to remove a child when she needed to do so. (See Exhibit A)

The egregious acts and abhorrent behavior of officials who are supposed to protect children can no longer be tolerated.
