Donnelly Keaton Burns Having Fun At Home


 

THIS SITE IS DEDICATED AND NAMED AFTER MY PRECIOUS SON, DONNELLY KEATON BURNS.

I AM CRYING RIGHT NOW.

 

I DESPISE SOCIAL WORKERS AND THEIR COURT COHORTS


I really wish I could help every single person that is experiencing the traumatic and horrific injustices of Child Protective Services. If I was physically capable of helping each and every one of you on a personal level I would, in a heartbeat. Unfortunately, I cannot do that. When I do attempt to help someone, their story practically immobilizes me as I know it brings out very real and very emotional memories of my experiences and loss. Please bear with me and keep calling or email me at: selfhelp_donnellyjustice@live.com.

My husband and I read every single heartbreaking story and feel your pain as if it were us. Every detailed story makes me cry, and more so mad at the monsters that go around acting like they are saving children. What a rouse the system is! I have very very strong negative opinions of those people for the following reasons:

[DISCLAIMER: I DO DESPISE CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICE AGENCIES AND THOSE PEOPLE WHO CALL THEMSELVES SOCIAL WORKERS AS WELL AS THE COURT COHORTS BUT THAT SHOULD NOT BE PERCEIVED AS ANY KIND OF PHYSICAL THREAT AS I CAN REFRAIN FROM ACTING VIOLENT. I DO NOT PROMOTE VIOLENCE AGAINST THESE PEOPLE AND WOULD NOT SUPPORT NOR CONDONE  ANYONE WHO PERPETRATED VIOLENCE OR THREATS OF VIOLENCE AGAINST ANY HUMAN BEING.  YOU HAVE A MORAL OBLIGATION TO CHOOSE HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT SOCIAL WORKERS AND THEIR COURT COHORTS RATHER THAN FEEL THE WAY I FEEL WITHOUT HESITATION. JUST BECAUSE I  DESPISE THEM DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU SHOULD DESPISE THEM, IT IS YOUR PERSONAL CHOICE.
  1. I despise social workers and their supervisors for all the extremely vulgar lies that come out of their mouths and/or write in their reports about good, decent parents;

  2.  I despise social workers and their supervisors for every cover-up of their deception;

  3. I despise social workers and their supervisors for every broken promise that they make;

  4. I despise social workers and their supervisors for separating children who are obviously bonded to their parents and siblings;

  5. I despise social workers and their supervisors for placing children with strangers who TRULY ABUSE AND NEGLECT THEM;

  6. I despise social workers and their supervisors for separating siblings;

  7. I despise social workers and their supervisors for not caring about the children or hearing their voices when they speak about NOT being abused and that they are happy and well cared for at home;

  8. I despise social workers and their supervisors for claiming that a child said things about their parent that they did not say;

  9. I despise social workers and their supervisors for threatening or coercing children into claiming that they had been abused;

  10. I despise social workers and their supervisors for performing invasive and very uncomfortable sexual assault examinations on children that they KNOW have not been subjected to any sexual abuse (until they themselves do that with the examination);

  11. I despise social workers and their supervisors for failing to assess family members for placement and/or for claiming to family members that they are not approved despite the assessment department sending them a letter stating that they had been approved;

  12. I despise social workers and their supervisors for administering psychotropic medication to children as young as 12 months old without consulting the parent;

  13. I despise social workers and their supervisors for denying parents knowledge of the administration of drugs and the right to make that medical decision;

  14. I despise social workers and their supervisors for denying the rights of the parents to make any medical decisions, denying their right to know their child’s medical condition

  15. I despise social workers and their supervisors for RE-VACCINATING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN DESPITE HAVING THE CHILD’S VACCINE RECORDS IN THEIR FILES!

  16. I despise social workers and their supervisors for taking custody of children whose parents chose not to subject their child to extremely harmful chemotherapy and radiation for the treatment of cancer and chose a homeopathic approach;

  17. I despise social workers and their supervisors for taking illegal custody of children as a retaliation to good parents for speaking out and warning other parents of this gross injustice;

  18. I despise social workers and their supervisors for not reporting injuries of children in foster care;

  19. I despise social workers and their supervisors for not reporting deaths of children in foster care;

  20. I despise social workers and their supervisors for failing to investigate obvious abuse perpetrated upon children in foster care:

  21. I despise social workers and their supervisors for falsifying evidence and submitting such evidence to the court;

  22. I despise the court for always siding with CPS;

  23. I despise the court for never dismissing a petition due to lack of evidence;

  24.  I despise the court for sustaining every objection of county counsel and overruling any and all objections made by the parents or their counsel;

  25. I despise the court for failing to find CPS in contempt when they do not follow court “orders” but use any and all major or minor deviations of the Welfare & Institutions code by the parents against them;

  26. I despise the court for being so positively bias towards the County and so negatively against the parents;

  27. I despise the court for failing to question anything that the social workers report says or the evidence attached to it;

  28. I despise the court for adopting each recommendation of the Department as it makes its “Findings and Orders”, as they say, “I adopt the recommendations contained on page (blah blah blah) of the (blah blah blah) Report dated (blah blah blah)” rather than make his/her findings based on credible evidence and testimony;

  29. I despise the court for conducting “hearings” in an adversarial manner;

  30. I despise the “Defense Panel” attorneys for failing their clients in every way possible;

  31. I despise the court for failing to clearly state on the record the reasons for finding that the child(ren) come within Welfare & Institutions Code Section 300;

  32. I despise the court and the Defense Panel for failing to question the legitimacy of documents, the validity of the social worker’s testimony, and for failing to allow the parents or other family members to speak in court;

  33. I despise County Counsel for sleeping with the “Judge”;

  34. I despise the Director of Social Services for pushing the Supervisors to remove without offering the family any real services and for claiming that demanding a parent to drug test is considered a “service” and is allowed to be used as a Reasonable Effort to allow the children to remain at home;

  35. I despise the way that the county submits Minute Orders to the State of California for qualifying for AFSA and CAPTA despite the fact that the Minute Orders do not accurately reflect the conduct of the hearing;

  36. I despise the “Collaborative Partners” for either 1) Being completely ignorant to what the County is doing to children and families; or 2) Knowing what is going on and contributing to the destruction of the families;

  37. I despise the “headhunters” who are usually nurses or wannabe doctors who will see a situation that they can manipulate and turn into something bad against the parents and completely wrong and untrue, this bothers me so much I have hyperventilated from the stress of hearing the injustice;

  38. I despise the police officers that go to people’s homes and watch their rights be violated and watch children be removed from people that they can clearly see care properly for their children;

  39. I despise anyone who is aware of the injustices and does nothing.

And these are the reasons I can think of off the top of my head! There are many more reasons and they all have to do with specific cases.  I will be listening to someone’s story and they will tell me something that the social worker did or said and I will get all red in the face and just say, “Oh my god, I swear, I despise those people!”

Like I said, I wish I could help every person who visits our site and cries out for help. Reading the comments on ‘Families Destroyed, Tell Your Story” and on other posts literally debilitates me sometimes because I want to write objections for everyone, I want to write and  call social workers, supervisors and the Director himself/herself for each and every one of you but it is physically impossible for me to do so. My husband and I keep talking about funding. We are exploring our options and applying for whatever we can. I want to create an alternative to CPS. I want to have a legal staff, I want to provide seminars and workshops for parents currently in the system. I want to convince everyone who is unaware of what is happening to us that this shit needs to change. Its like when we learned (or maybe just led to believe, I’m not sure) in school about what happened in Germany to the Jews and even non-Jews and thought, “Oh my God, how could that have happened? Why did the people of Germany just sit by and let their government do that?” Well, why are WE, CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, letting this happen to our own families?????

This post, as all posts, is dedicated to our son, Donnelly Keaton Burns, our little baby boy who was stolen by CPS and their court cohorts (with the help of Leslie Ann Logan Burns Hoyle) for adoption incentive funding

If Adoptive Parents Deserve Incentive Funding, So Do Biological Parents!


This is absolutely CRAZY! These people CHOSE to adopt a child, they chose to adopt a “special needs” child, just like couples chose to have a natural child. Natural parents don’t receive any money for having a “special needs” child. Most of the “special needs” children ,who they claim “need” medication, wouldn’t need medication if they were never taken from their families!! The system is the most discusting, perverse, hypocritical, abomination! Adoptive parents don’t deserve money any more or less than the biological parents!

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”.

Legal Advice (That I Don’t Need A Law Degree to Give You)


I hope to keep this list ongoing. If anyone would like to contribute to this list, please comment.

Here are some things I learned about the way Child Protective Service Social Workers and the agency as a whole, operates:

1.  Be aware that if any social worker calls you to tell you that they are closing their investigation and you need to bring the child(ren) down to their office to sign some papers THIS IS A TRICK! THEY INTEND TO KIDNAP YOUR CHILD. They do not need a “signature” to close out anything!

2.  Often, social workers will try to bluff you claiming that your drug test results were positive just to get you to fess up on yourself. Do not fall for this trick.

3.  Social workers are “collaborative partners” with ALL OF THEIR CONTRACTED SERVICE PROVIDERS. Never trust any employee or doctor that CPS has paid to provide you “services”. Those “confidentiality” laws mean nothing when it comes to providing CPS with any and all information about you. They only use these laws against you. You have a right to all the information in your file regardless of where it is.

4.  NEVER ADMIT TO THINGS YOU DIDN’T DO. This is where I messed up. I was constantly pressured to “take responsibility for my actions” during our first case. I was threatened to have my children removed if I didn’t say  that I had a drug problem. I wish I would have stood my ground and hired an expert witness to testify as to the legitimacy of those drug test documents. 

5.  Never give the Hearing Officer a dirty look. 

6.  Never ever believe a social worker. If they say that they are recommending that the case be closed, maybe the paperwork says that but that doesn’t mean that is what they are really telling the Hearing Officer to do. This is just so you don’t give them a hard time when dealing with you for another six months. 

7.  Always ask the Hearing Officer in court for a copy of the Minute Orders. That way you don’t have to pay for it at the clerk’s office or go through the hassle trying to get one. They can print it out right there in the courtroom and hand it to you. When you get home, make a copy and send it to your lawyer because they are never seem to have a copy of it. 

8.  If the Hearing Officer orders CPS to do something for you and they do not do it, warn the social worker and their supervisor that you know you can file a document for them to be found in contempt. Give them a deadline of not more than 5 business days to comply with the Minute Order and follow up with a confirmation letter. Send this letter to the social worker, adding a “cc” to their supervisor and the agency Director.

9.  Child protection workers are like cops. You have the right to remain silent because if you share your strengths and weaknesses with them they will use it against you to kidnap your children. – Pure Mad Angel

10.  After you are threatened with the possibility of never having your children returned and coerced into cooperating with CPS’s “services”, act like you are “benefitting” from them. Pour the sugar on thick and tell them how much you are learning and how grateful you are. Patronize them but don’t make it seem too fake. Be polite and nice to the worker and never argue or yell at them.

11.  Prior to every hearing you will receive a copy of the social worker’s report which is submitted to the court. Be firm when it comes to their lies and manipulations. Make sure you write a rebuttal and file it with the court. Make sure that you use the words “I object to..” and “the social worker’s statement is false”.  There are different rules in every state as well as the county regarding the deadline to file a response. If you fail to meet this deadline, your statement will not be a part of the official record. Check with the clerk and ask what the deadline for filing this rebuttal (written in the form of a Declaration) with the court and serving it upon all other parties. Do not count on your attorney to serve the other attorneys, have someone 18 years old or older mail it to CPS’s attorney, (County Counsel), the other parent’s attorney and the child(ren)’s attorney (Minors Counsel). You should find these names and addresses in the first few pages of the report that you are rebutting. In essence, failing to object to the lies makes them sort of true as far as the record goes therefore, any appeal based on perjury will be denied.  

The following was inspired by a document available on another site,  http://nfpcar.org/References/DOnDont.htm

12. Never invite a social worker or law enforcement into your home. This is if you do not have a current open CPS case. Unfortunately, if you refuse to let social workers in when they do their home visit it will have a very negative effect on your case and could result in the removal of your children. However, if the children are not currently placed in your home, they have no reason to be there unless it is to assess your home for the return of your children. 

Speak Out Against CPS’s Corrupt Practices June 13, 2014


Help us inform parents, help us expose the illegal practices of CPS and Dependency Court, help end children being abused in foster care! Doing NOTHING doesn’t change anything.

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.

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.
