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.

I Read The California Welfare & Institutions Code For Fun


If the Defense Panel did the same maybe they wouldn’t be so ignorant in court. At the very least they should have a code book in their office don’t you think? Here are a few codes I would like to share.

396. It is the policy of the Legislature that foster care should be a temporary method of care for the children of this state, that children have a right to a normal home life free from abuse, that reunification with the natural parent or parents or another alternate permanent living situation such as adoption or guardianship is more suitable to a child’s well-being than is foster care, that this state has a responsibility to attempt to ensure that children are given the chance to have happy and healthy lives, and that, to the extent possible, the current practice of moving children receiving foster care services from one foster home to another until they reach the age of majority should be discontinued.

397. In order to carry out the policy stated in Section 396, each county welfare department or probation department shall report to the State Department of Social Services, in the frequency and format determined by the department, foster care characteristic data and care information deemed essential by the department to establish a foster care information system. The report shall include, but not be limited to, elements that identify the factors necessitating foster care placement, the appropriateness of the placement, and the case goal or objective such as reunification, adoption, guardianship, or long-term foster care placement.

399. Any minor being considered for placement in a foster home
shall have the right to make a brief statement to the court making a decision on placement. The court may disregard any preferences expressed by the minor. The minor’s right to make a statement shall not be limited to the initial placement, but shall continue for any proceedings concerning continued placement or a decision to return to parental custody.

 

So, your child HAS A SAY in their placement. If your child is 10 or older, regardless of your child’s age, tell them to speak up in court even if the Court MAY completely disregard it.  Did you know that the children can also APPEAL any decision? All they have to do is tell their lawyer to do that and they must regardless of whether or not they feel it is in the child’s “best interests”.

WELCOME TO DONNELLYJUSTICE


This site is brought to you by William and Sharon Burns. Our son, Donnelly Keaton Burns, was literally stolen from us and the rest of our family by the corrupt and abusive child protection industry. To this day, Donnelly is being denied access to even KNOWING that his family did not abandon him.

We would like to thank all who support our site by visiting and commenting. We are proud to be able to continue to bring you this site AD FREE. I have re-organized the side link panel and am continuing to update old posts and place them in the appropriate category. I am checking the status of each link and have added quite a few more. Eventually, I will have a link to the laws and statutes of each state. Slide1

We are very excited about our stats! Over 500 people visit this site EACH DAY! Although, we are excited in a good way and in a BAD way. The good way is that people who need this information are finding us! Awesome! The BAD way is that CPS is on a rampage, doing things the opposite of the way they should thus, more and more people need this information!

Hopefully we have something here to help you deal with this horrible thing that you are going through. NO PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN WHO IS FIGHTING ALLEGATIONS OF CHILD ABUSE, WHO ADAMANTLY LOVE AND CHERISH THEIR CHILDREN SHOULD LOSE THEM FOR ANY REASON!! djusticebuscard2

But I am certain that those who have argued with CPS, who have told their “lawyers” that CPS lied and/or falsified evidence, whose children are well behaved and get good grades, whose children are healthy and cute, and who are doing everything that is asked of them are having a more difficult time getting their children back. Do you know of anyone who basically admitted to the allegations, who attend only some of their classes and programs, who miss visits and even continue to use illegal substances yet THEY have their children? See, that’s what I am talking about. We believe that the children of those people are not “adoptable” so CPS doesn’t want them. Yours however, are “adorable and adoptable”. My Defense Panel “attorney”, Marla Contessa Mahoney, told me straight up, ‘I will be honest with you Ms Joyce, Donnelly is VERY adorable and VERY adoptable. Even though you are doing everything you can and more, you are not going to get him back. I’m sorry.” 

(I’m not saying that if you get them back that they are not well behaved, get good grades and adorable!)railroaded2

But every case is different and CPS budgets change all the time. You may very well get your child back. If I could do it all over again, I would hire a private attorney no mater what the cost was and no matter what I had to do to get up the money (except steal it of course). That is your best chance. The only other thing you can do is go with flow, do what they want, kiss their ass and never argue with them. If you are lucky enough to get your children back  Get your case closed and MOVE. Move far away or at least to another county and don’t ever ever ever let CPS in your home again. Stay out of trouble (jail) and don’t put yourself or your children in any situation that you don’t trust or with anyone who has ever thought CPS was a good agency. Those are the ones that call the hotline. Family members call the hotline too so really be careful of them.

We believe that it is the goal of the New World Order or whatever they call themselves, is to tear apart the family unit, to pit neighbor against neighbor and make everyone generally distrust each other yet trust the government. This is to prevent uprisings against the government. Imagine what we could do to them if we we acted in unity! So make amends with your family, try to get along, genuinely, they are your FAMILY AFTER ALL. Another option, if your family loves you, is have them advocate for placement with them and to pretend to be against you. Then they agree to adopt your child(ren) and promise that they won’t let you near them. Then, when the adoption or legal guardianship is final and the case is completely closed, your family can just give you your child back. Most of the time no one is going to know that there is any court documentation as it is completely confidential. You are the parent, you have the birth certificate, who is going to say that you don’t have custody? Caution, you would have to move for sure and change schools or better yet, home school your kids. 

Yes, I am suggesting you play their game. It worked for us in our first case. You have nothing to lose by doing this because fighting them is definitely not going to get them back any sooner. Unless, of course, you have an attorney who isn’t scared of CPS nor in their pocket. Good luck with that one. 

IF YOU GET YOUR CHILDREN BACK YOU MUST SUE THEM! if everyone sues, things might change for the better and they may have to actually play by the rules and laws. SEE THE SIDE PANEL: Suing CPS. 

IF YOU FIGHT THEM, FIGHT THEM WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT. DON’T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING! SEE EVERYTHING ON THE SIDE PANEL.

Good luck to you and keep your chin up no matter which way you handle it.

Sincerely,

Sharon Joyce-Burns

CPS WORKERS ARE DELUSIONAL: Interview With A Former CPS Worker


A resourceful and assertive donnellyjustice.me reader who goes by the handle, Mad Angel, recently had an opportunity to ask a former CPS caseworker some questions. Mad Angel asked members of Facebook to let her know if there were any questions that they wanted answers for. Here are the questions and answers that this brave individual gave HOWEVER, her answers give a clue as to how oblivious the workers really are to what is really going on. These answers are based on WHAT THE WORKER EXPERIENCED, WHAT THEY LEARNED IN “TRAINING” AND WERE LITERALLY TOLD TO BELIEVE AND TO THINK.

                                                                                                                      

dependency court

[Copied from Facebook with my own remarks which are between the two lines]

Here are the responses from the caseworker as promised.

1. I understand caseworkers get paid a salary, they get benefit packages…..So when a cps worker has done what they call an excellent job and removing more kids to safety or having more kids adopted out , than do they individually receive actual adjusted bonuses for what they call outstanding work?

ANSWER: Contrary to popular belief, there are no direct bonuses. However, the agency/state does not receive as much federal money for kids not in care and there are adoption federal funds received by the state agency.

                                                                                                                     

*****NOTE: My husband used to be a drinking buddy of a now retired CPS Supervisor and she received “Christmas” bonuses and the amount was unofficially based on the number of children her department “saved”. **************************

                                                                                                                    

2. Who really makes the decision to remove the child, the CPS worker or their supervisor/manager?

ANSWER: Ultimately, the decision belongs to the Supervisor, however, I have seen Supervisors bend over backwards to “help” the caseworker come to the conclusion that removal is necessary….or, at least, “in the child’s best interest.” Remember, we are taught to “err on the side of the child.”

3. Why does cps use past allegation from closed cases as removal purposes?

Usually only past “substantiated” referrals are given much weight. They can indicate whether a living situation is chronic as opposed to perhaps a one-time occurrence.

4. Why do they refuse to offer any real services to keep the family together in minor neglect cases? Is there no benefits or extra incentives to help in force the caseworkers want to keep the family unit together?

ANSWER: The agency is limited to the services available within a given community (i.e. lowest bidder, and you get what you pay for, but quality of services was never at the top of my list of concerns). INCENTIVES TO KEEP FAMILIES TOGETHER is at the very crux of the CPS issue. This was the entire point of the new policy that was implemented, but not followed, which prompted me to speak out against the agency “not following its own rules,” and for which I was eventually fired.

                                                                                                                       

*****NOTE: Same goes for everyone involved in the “court” facade. They use the rules against the parents but can break them all if they want to. Why BECAUSE THE JUDGE LETS THEM!!! THEY ARE NEVER HELD ACCOUNTABLE!!***********

                                                                                                                       

5. Why would they only take 1 child from the home & leave older & younger full siblings with accused neglectful parent?

ANSWER: Each child’s vulnerability is assessed individually. It is extremely unusual to leave a younger (i.e. more vulnerable) child in a home from which older children were removed. Older children are frequently left because they are capable of self-defense (or so the reasoning goes).

                                                                                                                    

**NOTE: I have never heard of any cases where one child was removed yet allowed the others to stay unless the others were not at home or school at the time of the initial removal but eventually CPS takes all full blood related children (i.e. no half-siblings) Half-siblings are often not included in the removal or the case but this, in my case, was due to the fact that it was the vindictive mother of the half sibling who made the “anonymous” call and because the half-sibling’s grandmother was a 35 year CPS veteran employee. *******************************************************

                                                                                                                    

6. Does he state also receive extra funding for children with disabilities?

ANSWER: Yes

7. We know abusive people can be very deceitful, yet there seems to be a growing trend of the abusive parent getting custody of the children in many cases (and what has caused a lot of the incidents of death/murder in many cases) doesn’t cps have training into noticing the trends of an abusive parent?

ANSWER: In short, yes. But the training is mostly concerned with protecting the agency from bad press. What I witnessed most frequently was removal of the child(ren) from one parent due to substantiated abuse and placement with the other parent for the simple reason that we have no allegations of abuse against them because we don’t know them.

                                                                                                                     

***NOTE: Well, how about at least looking into why the Family Law Judge (whose decisions are considered to be fair and reasonable by everyone else but CPS apparently) made the decision to grant physical custody to the decent parent they are taking the child away from???!! At least they could find out that much!!! MESSAGE TO CPS WORKERS AND YOU COURT COHORTS THAT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN: Family Law Judges know what they are doing (at least half the time) and have a GOOD REASON to order one parent have only supervised visits, why not just go with those orders until you can bring the case to court?                                                  

8. I realize that a timid parent who doesn’t aggressively stop another abusive parent is in essence just as guilty as the abusive parent, yet why is it that cps standards seem to be shifting to allow the abusive parent custody first and foremost.

ANSWER: Please see the above answer and, remember, CPS is not a “custody” agency. This is a difficult concept because, while CPS can remove children and place children either in foster care or with the “non-offending” parent, CPS does not establish custody. That is done by a judge in the Domestic Relations Court. Interestingly, because there is no legal custody for most children, either parent has the same rights to the child and therefore CPS cannot keep the child from the parent on whom we have no indication of abuse because we don’t know them.

9. Why wouldn’t services be offered to keep emotionally disabled child with her family? Why send her back home only when she began having uncontrollable seizures? Liability???

ANSWER: Yeah, CPS definitely sometimes “cuts their losses.” Like for a habitual “runner” or dangerous child. Usually these cases involve out-of-control teenagers.

10. Do you know anything about the bribes offered to the judges and jurors? If so, have you ever actually witnessed such acts?

I honestly have no knowledge of a judge receiving a bribe and I’ve never worked on a case with a jury.

                                                                                                                     

**NOTE: In Riverside County, CA the County places an advertisement looking for a “Judge” to fill the seat in Juvenile Court Dependency Court. This court is exclusive to CPS, everyone is paid out of the same funding that CPS workers are paid, meanwhile still receiving their regular seat pay as they have only taken an administrative leave or something. They are already being “bribed” just by accepting their paychecks from the same county who is against the people whose children are being removed or the “defendants.. How do they get away with such a conflict of interest??*****************

                                                                                                                      

11. It seems like the whole court and all the membiers inside during a child welfare case are all old buddies, is it true that sometimes before a hearing the lawyers may negotiate on whether or not to win or lose the case for each other. (I’ve overheard this one, “come on last time you were ruthless and I know that guy was guilty you have to let me win this one I haven’t gotten a winning case this week”

ANSWER: I think it is a bit of an “old-boys-network” (although it is mostly women). That said, I honestly think that most caseworkers, lawyers, judges…honestly believe they are doing what is in the best interest of the children. They are simply not terribly well-read when it comes to family-dynamics and child-development. The biggest problems with CPS are ignorance and megalomania.

12. Can you please explain how the agency benefits from the title IV funding?

ANSWER: If a child is IV-E eligible (which, for our purposes here, essentially means the child would qualify for TANF…i.e.poor families), the state gets federal funding for the child. This represents the VAST MAJORITY of CPS children.

13. We see over and over in the news how cps had plenty of opportunity to remove a child, yet they don’t. Most of the time the public only gets to see the cases that go completely wrong ie child dies. Why is a child left in an abusive situation during an active investigation?

ANSWER: It’s all about timing or disclosure. Either a child must disclose that they are being abused or CPS must catch the parents in the immediate aftermath of abuse or during neglect.

14. How do you find the “prisons” set up by CPS that imprison children? Children that most likely were taken from NON-abusive homes and families.

ANSWER: Honestly, foster homes are thoroughly vetted and I consider most of them saints. They are put under more scrutiny than even families being investigated. That said, if you are a bad person, the tightest scrutiny can be circumvented for long periods of time with lies and deception.

15. Why are some children put in Foster care, and the immediate family members are not contacted?

ANSWER: CPS is required by federal law to “diligently search” for family with whom the child can be placed. Of course, laws only work if they are enforced and this is among the top-5 problems with “the system:” no enforcement.

16. What process do they use to find family members of the child?

ANSWER: There is a systematic protocol, but, essentially, either the parent or child must provide contact information for expedient location of suitable relatives.

17. Did you ever have civil rights training?

ANSWER: Civil rights training is often received, but rarely enforced. My biggest concern was always constitutional rights (see 4th, 6th and 14th amendments) which are never taught or enforced.

18. What were the motivations of the job?

ANSWER: I can really only speak for myself, but my motivations were simple, help children while maintaining the sanctity of family. Considered more valued than these within the agency are agency-protection, enforcement and megalomania, which is why I’m unemployed.

19. What kind of mandatory training did you have?

ANSWER: TONS!!! of mandatory training, little of which translated to practice for anyone else.

20. What can parents do to keep caseworkers honest?

ANSWER: Nothing, but being obsequious and obedient is what I have seen help families even with corrupt and/or monomaniacal workers.

21. Did you ever know of a whistle-blower? What happened?

ANSWER: I was a whistle-blower. We get targeted and are eventually fired and no one cares. The bureaucratic behemoth lives on to devour more families and children.

22. What corruption have you seen yourself, and are you willing to present this information to the public?

ANSWER: One of my favorite examples of corruption was when I worked in the freeing-children-for-adoption unit where we read “home studies” on prospective adoptive families and one of my co-workers said she immediately checks to see if a family is religious and if they are she won’t even consider them as a potential placement. A clear violation of civil rights. Unfortunately most corruption in CPS is much more subtle and can be effectively couched in “best interest of child” and “err on side of child” language. It’s all gray area therefore there is no wrong way of doing things. This is why, I am convinced CPS will never experience wholesale improvement. Society NEEDS a perceived protector for its most vulnerable and a visible scapegoat when things go horribly wrong.

I HAVE already gone public with all of this. I got fired. No one cares.

23. We’re you ever trained to do the wrong thing?

ANSWER: I think I made it abundantly clear to my superiors from “go” that I would not be a blindly obedient Nazi. I was eventually fired precisely because I would not do the wrong thing.

24. When they figure out that they made the wrong decision. Like placing the children with the abusive parent, why don’t they fix it?

ANSWER: The next time I witness the agency admitting a mistake it will be the first time.

Dear Donnelly,
We love you and miss you soooo much! We think about you every single second, of every single hour, every single day, of every single week, of every single month, since we last saw you and for the rest of our lives.

Mommy and Daddy never did anything to hurt you except fail to protect you from being kidnapped by CPS and the Collaborative Court Cohorts. We tried to RESCUE you but they had us illegally arrested for kidnapping charges that should have only been a contempt of court issue.

Your whole family misses you too:

A Cannon A Day For Judges Astray

Child Protective Services is an insult and a slap in the face of every decent parent.


donnellyjustice writes:

The article below has appeared in several newspapers across the country and has become a bit of reading that is all too common in the US. The people that should be held accountable are the Judges who are relied upon as the only oversight for CPS and should be looking out for the kids are favoring money instead. No matter how many times I read about travesties like this, I cannot believe a man could let his judgment be swayed from the protection of a child to that of a position of money. Money is not something you can take with you.

It isn’t how much you make during your lifetime that decides your fate, it is the quality of your person in which you choose to share with the world, now that you can take with you.


Falsification of Records 

Grand jury investigation into CPS fund that out of 50 cases of removal of parental rights investigated by CPS,  (licensed or unlicensed didn’t make any difference)  found that every case had falsified facts. I will say it again, every case had falsified and exaggerated facts leading the the termination of parental rights.  The evidence was exaggerated to take the children out of the home and keep these children involved in services even at the expense of the parental rights.  July stated that from what she found was a world of traumatized children and parents with the opinion that the last thing on the CPS agenda is the child’s best interest  I find this completely criminal and must come from the top down.  The commonality in which every report was written is almost identical and shows CPS only cares about CPS. Further reports into ACS, CPS, or CFS
If criminal charges involving negligence or endangering the welfare of a child are rare, indictments for falsification of records are more common.  Six employees from CPS were indicted by the District Attorney on charges that they had falsified case records.  The case ultimately led to termination of foster care contracts with ACS and transition to new leadership at the agency.   In 2009, a former Child Protective Specialist with ACS was arrested on felony charges of falsifying records of cases to which she had been assigned.

“In Washington, they say that the cover-up is worse than the original act,” says Douglas Besharov, a Professor at the University of Maryland’s School of Public Policy and first Director of the National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect. “Remember, that’s how they convicted Martha Stewart — for lying to an FBI agent.”  Besharov notes that the tendency to want to cover up any failings in your performance is an unfortunate part of human nature and in no way limited to child protective work.

Child welfare agencies must be on constant guard to ensure a strong commitment to ethical and fully accurate reporting on casework activities. The truth is nothing gets done because of the federal funding to the county by the fabrication of evidence. If it doesn’t get caught by the appellate court the worker gets a raise, this is awful but true.

“We want to be very serious about matters of integrity,  “If you knowingly falsify records you got a career with CPS.  It is that simple.  Our documentation must accurately and honestly describe the event according to federal guide lines to get funding from the government but no one questions it or checks.  each unique event isn’t observed.” most of the time it is hearsay after the fact explained over the hot line and the worker goes out to the home told to make the report true. This is an unsaid rule.

“Falsification of records is grounds for termination, or should be” says, Executive Director. “It is one thing if you didn’t do something; but if you didn’t do it and you tell me you did, you are not going to be here if the people find out about it..  We probably would end up firing a couple of people for this every year.” but only if criminally caught. The truth is children are walking dollar signs and the government pays us to think that way.

In response to the Marchella Pierce case, State Senator Martin Golden has introduced legislation which would require CPS workers to take date-stamped photos of children during home visits. “People are sick over reading recent news reports about a caseworker who falsified home visits,” Senator Golden said. “This appalling behavior leaves children open to even more violence and abuse. While the vast majority of caseworkers tackle their difficult jobs with pride and dignity each day, the bad apples are allowing our children to die.”

Under Golden’s proposal, the photo of the child must be taken and entered into the case record along with the caseworker’s notes and findings for that visit. Florida implemented a similar system recently after more than seventy Florida child welfare workers reportedly were caught lying about their home visits and nothing ever happens to these workers. The truth is we get no sanctions, lectures, nothing unless it makes major news then it is only for public support, in other words smoke and mirrors.

This is not the first effort to utilize technology as a way to help document home visits and other critical casework activities. It is a way to get the workers to actually do their job instead of sitting home all day.  The State’s Connections system, which has its own date-stamping function for entry of progress notes, plays an important role in ensuring that initial reporting on visits and other casework activities are not doctored after the fact.

Several years ago, a number of voluntary foster care agencies participated in a pilot project with a private software company on a system which would verify home visits.  Caseworkers would call to a central station using the foster parent or natural parent’s telephone.  In addition to recording the time and location of the call, the system was designed to allow workers to dictate case notes which would subsequently be transcribed and sent back to them for entry into Connections.   The system was a variation of one frequently used by home health providers to verify the attendance of home aides.
While the pilot project offered agencies an opportunity to test the system at little or no cost, the final product would have represented a significant investment, says Jerry McCaffrey, who oversaw the pilot while serving as Executive Director at Seamen’s Society and later explored implementing the system at MercyFirst.  “It was too expensive,” he explains.  Nancy Vomero, McCaffrey’s successor as Executive Director at Seamen’s Society agrees.  “We terminated it after the pilot was complete. It was a good idea but it was too expensive,” says Vomero, noting that there were also concerns about the work involved with dictating and subsequently re-entering case notes. No one is held accountable in CPS unless the people find out about it. That is the very reason for the secrecy of child courts it isn’t to protect the children it is to protect the workers from cashing in on kids.

Now, a number of agencies are reportedly exploring the use of GPS based systems involving cellphones or other devices as a way of verifying field activities by staff.

While technology can help, it is no magic bullet.  “None of these technological solutions are perfect and none of them replace good supervision,” says Mary Jane Disables, Senior Program and Policy Analyst at COFCCA.

ACS and it’s CPS counterpart should NOT be looked upon as a first line of defense for our children, an agency with workers dedicated to protection of CPS. Instead of kids  workers are seen as harbingers of lies and mistrust, and if you’ve ever had one in your house, you know why. And I end with this. CPS workers should arrive at a home with a video cam, kind of like the dash board cam on police cruisers. I guarantee there would be a change in this so called process of “removal” and “who closed the gate after the dog got out”!

I am in agreement with the actions of the DA, in charging the CPS case workers, because for far to long ACS workers have been known to get away with allowing foster care providers who are known for neglecting and endangering children in their care. They are also known for taking innocent children out of good homes and placing them into bad foster care environments not only do the Law Guardians look the other way but the Commissioner, is also guilty of the same types of neglect I know this from my own family experience with my grandchildren being placed into a foster care environment that has proven to be very dangerous for the last five years of their lives. They were taken from a safe family home only to be place in eleven foster home that neglected and abused them and all individuals whom I have made these issues known to have turn an ear to black & white factual evidence.  The part that seems to just go under the carpet because people don’r want to speak up against judges, these judges MUST and SHALL be held accountable for this travesty going on in every city in the US.

As parents, our only line of defense is Law and Order and I can tell you with 100% responsibility for my words that Judge Monteroso allowed and relied on so much false evidence to be presented we never had one day of anything that resembled justice, fairness, decency, law or order. This judge destroyed a very close family and   and turned it into a show by allowing adoption applicants to sit in and watch the removal of my parental rights. Now it has become my life’s mission to expose this man and his court.  FACT: CPS WOULD NOT BE THE WAY THEY ARE TODAY IF IT WASN’T FOR THE CRIMINAL SYSTEM OF JUSTICE THESE JUDGES ALLOW.  It shames me to no end that we Americans allow these people to take our money to decide our fate and all that matters is what extra money we put in their pocket.  He disrespects the office in which he serves and the bench on which he sits.

Now my son has to pay the ultimate price of being one of the human beings sold by judge Monteroso the responsibility is in his lap because he is ultimately in charge of CPS and he has failed. I am going to work on his impeachment until I am to old to remember what has happened here. To continue to believe in this man who answers only to the dollar is a slap in the face of every decent parent. This is the very thing wrong with this country, people like this judge.

Falsified evidence and committing perjury IS NOT in a child’s best interest and that means that all the judges in S102 where my case was do not know the first thing about what is “in a child’s best interests”. A dedicated parent will put aside honor and ego to admit to things they didn’t do just to be able to see and hold their child again. That shows a caring and loving parent.  My children believed in me so I always did everything and anything possible to keep them safe. During my first case, I completed all the services while my wife was railroaded. I never failed a drug test. Then during the second case Kristine Vernier showed up with a piece of paper claiming to be a positive hair follicle test. It had no one’s name on it, nothing to identify whose test it was.  The Judge allowed her to go to her car and come back with a paper with a name on it. This is all on record. Who does that? Only CPS and the collaborative court cohorts. Its bullshit, that is why I challenged the test.  None of the Judges allowed statements from my children, sisters, other family members or friends that would have been in my favor. The judge wouldn’t consider most of my sister’s testimony due to her being “bias”! Are you freaking kidding me? Because she is a supportive person and had something positive to say about me, that makes her bias? What about all the BIAS going on for CPS and COUNTY COUNSEL?   Where is your honor Judge?  I should have said where is your DOLLAR. These children want to believe in someone of authority that is why you shouldn’t sit on that bench.

AS THE JURISDICTION TABLE TURNS


I had the most wonderful dream. The year was 2043. I was in a wheelchair. My daughter was pushing it into the Southwest Justice Center (courthouse). The metal made the detectors go wild, flashing red and blue lights yet it looked more like a slot machine. People were congratulaing me for winning or just still being alive to see this day. 

My daughter asked me if I wanted any popcorn from the clerks’ office. I asked her since when does the clerk have popcorn, in my day it was cotton candy. She smiled and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I watched her walk gracefully down the hallway, proud to be her mother and proud that I had raised such a decent and kind person. I thought, “Marla Mahoney would be jealous for sure.” I had read in the paper that her daughter became a crack/heroin addict and Mahoney was at the Ford Clinic. How ironic. 

This was the day I had been waiting for. It had been 30 years since I saw my son, Donnelly, and now I was finally being allowed to see him. He had been looking for me for a while but in the wrong place. I don’t know where I had been but I know I had not been far. Donnelly invited me to come see him at work. Oh, didn’t I tell you? He’s the Adult Protection and Dependency Court Judge. How ironic. 

It was so glorious to see my baby boy, all grown up and very handsome, like his Daddy. I was allowed to sit in His courtroom, in the second row on the left side. To my right and surprise was the adult man at issue. His name sounded so familiar, I’m sure I would have known exactly who he was had I been a little younger when my brain wasn’t so forgetful. My daughter entered into the courtroom with cotton candy. I asked her, “What about the popcorn?” She replied, “Oh Mommy, Donnelly ordered it special for you.” My eyes teared up so much that it was now really difficult to see who that man was that Adult Protective Services felt could not make his own decisions. My daughter looked his way when the case was called, “Your Honor, the first case here today is Case Number 7, John M. Monterosso.” and she literally began choking on her popcorn. She said, “Mommy, isn’t that the man who terminated your rights to Donnelly?” My son said, “Why Sissy, it SURE IS!” We all began laughing so hard while Monterosso’s elderly wife was crying her eyes out. I said, “Payback is a BITCH ain’t it?”

Should You Talk to CPS?


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

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

 

 

family. 

There are times when

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

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