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.

Harassment by Cops and CPS Simply for Speaking Out and Posting Abuse of Power


Child Protective Services aka CPS, Everything you ever wanted to know. The Good, The bad, and The Ugly.


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]

DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER


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

Now THIS is dangerous!

Landing a plane here must be dangerous.


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

This road is dangerous.This road is dangerous.

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

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

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

WARNING FOR PARENTS CAUGHT UP IN CPS KIDNAPPINGS, unfair court practices in CPS cases.


CPS courts having been allowing adoptive parents to be present in the court room putting the child and family on display while they put on a show even before you are found guilty of anything and after charges are unfounded.  The people that are allowed in is up to you. Your life is not a show for this court to exploit.

UNDERCOVER CAMERA EXPOSES CPS FALSE DRUG TESTING PRACTICES INSIDE THIS DRUG TESTING LAB AND WAS USED AS EVIDENCE TO STEAL MY CHILDREN


WATCH THIS VIDEO THEN WRITE AND GET THE ENTIRE TAPE AND LETS TAKE DOWN THIS COUNTY TOGETHER

Grand jury’s all across the United States have come up with the same findings of unaccountability in Child Protective Services for the death’s of children while in their care.

LETS ORGANIZE A PROTEST.

SPECIFICALLY IN RIVERSIDE AND MORENO VALLEY, CALIFORNIA

AT THE CPS OFFICES

IT IS ABOUT CHILDREN, SO NO EXCUSES TO NOT SHOW

CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES IS OUT OF CONTROL THAT MUCH WE ALL AGREE.

AND CHILDREN ARE DYING IN FOSTER CARE.
Child Protective Services covers up abuse and the deaths of children in foster care. This is NOT acceptable and will not be tolerated, I want my child back unhurt. Even the Federal government has requested CPS to stop covering up the deaths of children in CPS custody. I have read this in several news articles lately. OMG

Who is letting these people get away without reporting the deaths of children?

What is it going to take for this COUNTY AND STATE to consider our children more than a pay check?

What is going on and how come the people are not looking out for children?

Our government has shown us they don’t give a shit about our children and that they are nothing more than a pay check to these courts and CPS. Start talking to the people with children victimized by CPS and ask them if they want to do anything about this problem and if they do give them my email address. ProjectManagerBill@gmail.com

People, if you really are concerned about our children then email me and let’s organize and protest about this criminal behavior.

Write petitions, do whatever it takes to expose this problem of irresponsibility, non-accountability, and really really bad decisions by corrupt judges and Child Protective Services. All for Federal funding and it has to stop. These are innocent children and it is time for the state to grow up and stand for something other than big business at any cost.

If we don’t do anything about this problem, then we have no one to blame but ourselves. People before us have stood up for far less causes than this one. I have never in my life time seen a more noble cause.

OUR CHILDREN”S LIVES ARE BEING STOLEN

Violations committed by the CPS JUDGE in my case.:

1) Failure to charge the Department with contempt for their lack of providing services in a timely manner and allowing us to be charged with kidnapping/child stealing (our OWN child) which should have been a mere CONTEMPT of court issue, that is even if one was to consider an UNSIGNED JUVENILE DEPENDENCY Minute Order printout as a VALID court order!.

2) Administrative malfeasance: This happened in our case in several instances. Finding that my sister’s testimony was “bias” towards me yet allowing a COURT CLERK’s testimony into the record.

3) Bias/appearance of bias favorable towards department as he always ruled in their favor and never in ours.(Made personal opinion comments about me, my wife and my family as well.) None of the judges allowed our exculpatory evidence into the record.

4) Comment on pending case (as in our case letting the DA sit in and commented on our pending case turning a contempt into a criminal made sure the DA was filing charges on a contempt of his court )

5) Decisional delays. Continued our hearings numerous times due to their calendar being full and without stating on the record how these continuances were in the best interests of the children.

7) Demeanor/decorum; in my case it was extremely unprofessional and was against us from the beginning. Made several inappropriate comments.

8) Disqualification/disclosure/post-disqualification conduct to long for me to go into here. will be presented at a later time.

9) Ex parte communications;.Had in-chambers discussions with attorneys not yet appointed as counsel.

10) Failure to ensue rights: how many can I go into here? The most damaging was allowing CPS to submit fabricated documents and false statements into the record without admonishment not to mention about 100 instances.

11) On bench abuse of authority in performance of judicial duties; There have been several listed here and I do have many more as do most of you reading this or you wouldn’t be here. Most parents just don’t think it will happen to them until they have lost their child.

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.

Not Giving Up Hope – Federal Civil Action to Prove Malice


OUR ONLY HOPE

An adoption of a child may be overturned:

820.21. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of the law, the civil immunity of juvenile court social workers, child protection workers, and other public employees authorized to initiate or conduct investigations or proceedings pursuant to Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 200) of Part 1 of Division 2 of the Welfare and Institutions Code shall not extend to any of the following, if committed with malice: (1) Perjury. (2) Fabrication of evidence. (3) Failure to disclose known exculpatory evidence. (4) Obtaining testimony by duress, as defined in Section 1569 of the Civil Code, fraud, as defined in either Section 1572 or Section 1573 of the Civil Code, or undue influence, as defined in Section 1575 of the Civil Code. (b) As used in this section, “malice” means conduct that is intended by the person described in subdivision (a) to cause injury to the plaintiff or despicable conduct that is carried on by the person described in subdivision (a) with a willful and conscious disregard of the rights or safety of others.

My husband and I were falsely arrested and charged of “child stealing” when we took our son from a CPS office visit. According to them, they had legal “custody” of Donnelly however illegal and invalid those unsigned “orders” were, even at face we were only guilty of CONTEMPT OF COURT!!! Take a look”:

213. Any willful disobedience or interference with any lawful order of the juvenile court or of a judge or referee thereof constitutes a contempt of court. PLEASE LORD, MAY AN ATTORNEY SEE THIS POST AND WANT TO HELP ME AND MY FAMILY!!

CPS what they will not tell you is for the best interest of CPS


CPS WILL FIND A REASON IF THEY ARE CALLED TO YOUR HOME TO REMOVE YOUR CHILDREN. THIS IS A FACT. THIS FRAUD ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND IT WILL NOT STOP UNTIL PEOPLE WAKE UP AND DEMAND ACTION FROM POLITICIANS, STARTING WITH LOCAL REPRESENTATIVE ALL THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE. DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY. THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN TRAUMATIZED AND VICTIMIZED BY THIS CORRUPT SYSTEM NEED TO BOMBARD THEM WITH LETTERS ABOUT YOUR HORROR STORIES.

ALL THOSE WITH AUTHORITY ARE THE PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR FUNDING THESE CRIMINALS. IGNORANT PEOPLE ARE ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR ACCEPTING THE CPS STATUS QUO. CPS GETS PAID HUGE PROFITS IN THE FORM OF GOVERNMENT FUNDING AND INCENTIVES TO TAKE YOUR CHILDREN AND PLACE THEM IN OUT OF HOME FOSTER CARE. THEY DO NOT CARE HOW TRAUMATIZED A CHILD IS WHEN THEY ARE REMOVED AND PLACED WITH A STRANGER WHO DOESN’T CARE ABOUT THEM THE WAY THEIR PARENTS DID. CPS DOES NOT CARE IF THE CHILDREN FEEL SAFE. THIS TRAUMATIZING EVENT WILL NEVER GO AWAY. TRUST IN ADULTS IS COMPLETELY LOST. CPS IS 100% RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS BECAUSE OF THE FAILURE TO DO ANY KIND OF LEGITIMATE AND TRUE INVESTIGATION BEFORE REMOVAL.

THIS IS ALL PROMOTED FROM BY THE FUNDING AND BONUSES GIVEN FOR REMOVAL. EVERYTHING I HAVE STATED HERE IS FACT. FOLLOW THE MONEY. I HAVE. YOU WILL BE SURPRISED BY WHAT YOU FIND ON HOW DEEP THE CORRUPTION GOES. I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING THE MONEY FOR 5 YEARS NOW AND THE ENTIRE SYSTEM IS GONE ROUGE.

THE JUDGES ARE GIVEN KICK BACKS, NEVER MIND CONTRIBUTION MONEY ANYMORE. THE ATTORNEYS ALL WORK FOR THE SAME TEAM AND DECIDE YOUR CASE BEFORE YOU EVER GET TO COURT. IN CRIMINAL COURT THIS WOULD BE A CONFLICT AND ILLEGAL, ONE OF THE ATTORNEY’S WOULD HAVE TO REMOVE THEMSELVES BECAUSE THEY WORK FOR THE SAME OFFICE.

CPS COURT. ONE ATTORNEY CAN REPRESENT TWO SEPARATE PARTIES IF ONE OF THE ATTORNEYS IS ABSENT, THIS IS NOT REPRESENTATION BY ANY STANDARD.

NO ONE AND I MEAN, NO ONE LOOKS OUT FOR YOUR RIGHTS TO A FAIR TRIAL- EVER. IN FACT THEY ALL LAUGH AT THE WAY YOUR RIGHTS ARE OBLITERATED WHEN THEY GO OUT TO DINNER OR LUNCHES, (NOT LYING I KNOW THESE PEOPLE, AND HAVE WITNESSED THIS) I KNEW AN ATTORNEY WHO WORKED WITH THESE APPOINTED PAID LOSERS AND HE IS NOW SERVING 7 YEARS FOR HIS CRIMES.

THEIR AUTHORITY OVER YOU IS SO COMPLETE THAT IF YOU ATTEMPT TO FIGHT BACK THEY WILL SHOW YOU THEIR PREJUDICE. I HAVE SEEN CHILDREN FROM THE SAME HOME IN THE SAME CASE WHERE ONE RETURNED HOME AND THE OTHER WAS GIVEN UP FOR ADOPTION. NOW HOW IN THE HELL DOES THIS HAPPEN? IF YOU ARE NOT SAFE ENOUGH FOR ONE CHILD HOW CAN YOU BE SAFE ENOUGH FOR THE OTHER? THIS HAPPENS AND YOU CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT. NO ATTORNEY WILL TAKE YOUR CASE TO SUE UNLESS YOU HAVE CONCRETE EVIDENCE OF WRONG DOING AND IN ALMOST ALL CASES THESE SLOPPY MISTAKES ARE NOT  COVERED UP AND EASILY FOUND IT IF YOU LOOK AT THE ENTIRE CPS CASE FILE. (GO FOR THE APPEAL, GET THE CLERK’S TRANSCRIPT ON APPEAL. MAKE SURE ALL OF THE TRANSCRIPTS FROM THE DETENTION HEARINGS ARE INCLUDED). MOST ATTORNEYS DO NOT WANT TO “ROCK THE BOAT” AS THEY ARE ALL BAR MEMBERS. ATTORNEYS WHO HAVE TAKEN ON CPS DON’T WANT TO BECOME “SERIAL” CPS ADVERSARIES.

CPS AND THE COURT PEOPLE ARE CRIMINALS AND THEY ARE STEALING CHILDREN WILLY NILLY AND THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT. THE FRAUD BEGINS WITH COERCION AND STARTS WHEN CPS MAKES EVERYONE BELIEVE THEY HAVE TO SIGN THE CASE PLAN TO GET THEIR CHILDREN BACK AND/OR RISK PROSECUTION, THIS NOT TRUE.

IF YOU WERE FACING JAIL CPS COULD NOT STOP IT AND THEY WOULD NOT STOP IT, THEY WOULD SIMPLY WAIT TILL YOU WENT TO JAIL AND TAKE YOUR CHILDREN THEN. THIS IS THE WAY IT WORKS AND NO ONE ELSE WILL TELL YOU THIS.

CPS IS A CONTRACT COURT. YES, CIVIL COURT RULED BY CIVIL RULES. WHEN YOU SIGN THAT CASE PLAN YOU ARE GIVING THEM AUTHORITY OVER YOU AND ADMITTING TO THEIR ALLEGATIONS. THEY SAY IT CAN’T BE USED AGAINST YOU IN COURT BUT THEY DON’T TELL YOU THAT IT CAN’T BE USED AGAINST YOU IN ANY OTHER COURT HOWEVER, TRUTH BE TOLD, THEY CAN AND WILL STILL USE IT AGAINST YOU IF THEY RECEIVE ANOTHER REFERRAL AGAINST YOU. SO DON’T SIGN ANYTHING AND BY LAW IF THEY DO NOT HAVE ANY EVIDENCE, REAL EVIDENCE. THEY COME UP WITH GUILTY ON A PREPONERNCE OF EVIDENCE WHICH MEANS “MORE PROBABLE THAN NOT” OR AT MOST MORE THAN 50% LIKELY TO BE TRUE BASED ON ONE-SIDED EVIDENCE AND TESTIMONY) THEY HAVE TO RETURN YOU CHILDREN WITH IN 72 HOURS IF THEY DO NOT HAVE ANY REAL EVIDENCE OR YOU CAN PRESS CHARGES FOR KIDNAPPING ON THE PERSON THAT TOOK YOUR CHILD AND I MEAN THE SOCIAL WORKER THIS IS A COLOR OF LAW CRIME, USING THERE AUTHORITY TO CAUSE DAMAGES.

WAKE UP PEOPLE, CPS CAN BE BEAT BUT YOU WILL HAVE TO LEARN WHAT IS HAPPENING TO YOU FIRST. ALL THESE PEOPLE ARE PROFITING OFF OF YOUR HEART. YOUR PAIN WILL NEVER GO AWAY AND THEY DO NOT CARE.

I HAVE SEEN A CASE SO WELL PLANNED OUT THAT THE ADOPTIVE MOM THAT PICKED THE CHILD WAS IN THE COURT ROOM WHEN A PARENTS RIGHTS WERE TERMINATED. WHEN THE PARENTS WENT OUT CRYING THE ADOPTED MOTHER (I WON’T NAME COURTS BUT IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN AT SW COURTHOUSE IN TEMECULA , CALIFORNIA ON MAY 1, 2012 AND THE COUNSEL FOR A PARENT MAY HAVE BEEN DANIEL VINSON BUT THAT WOULD BE SAYING TOO MUCH SO I WILL KEEP THAT TO MYSELF). YOU HAVE TO, AND I CAN’T STRESS THIS ENOUGH, READ THE LAW ON CIVIL PROCEEDINGS AND THE LAWS ON FAMILY COURTS SO YOU CAN PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN.

ASK YOURSELF THIS QUESTION: IF YOU NEVER HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH CPS, OR IF YOU HAVE, WHAT IF ONE DAY CPS CAME KNOCKING ON YOUR DOOR AND THE REASON BEING THAT A PERSON, A NEIGHBOR OR EX-WIFE CALLED CPS HOTLINE AND LIED AND SAID SHE SAW YOU DOING DRUGS RECENTLY, OR CLAIM THAT YOU HIT YOUR CHILD OR SAY THAT YOU DON’T CLEAN YOUR HOUSE OR THAT YOUR KID’S CLOTHES ARE ALWAYS DIRTY OR THAT YOU DON’T HAVE ANY FOOD TO FEED YOUR KIDS BECAUSE YOU ASKED TO BORROW A CUP OF SUGAR, OR ANY OF 10,000 REASONS CPS CAN SAY IS “NEGLECT”. CPS WILL NOT LEAVE YOUR CHILD THERE BECAUSE, THEY DO NOT HAVE TO AND THEY GET PAID TO REMOVE THEM. WHAT WILL YOU DO? IS YOUR CHILD WORTH IT TO LEARN AS MUCH AS YOU CAN ABOUT THE LAW IN CPS (CIVIL COURTS CONTRACT LAW)?

IF YOU LOVE YOUR CHILD THE WAY I DO, THAN THE REASON IS OVERWHELMINGLY YES. DON”T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID AND LEARN THE LAW AFTER YOU LOSE YOU CHILD. I PRAY SO HARD EVERYDAY THAT CHILDREN WILL STOP BEING HURT LIKE THIS AND FAMILIES WILL STOP BEING ABSOLUTELY OBLITERATED. THE DAY THE JUDGE REMOVES YOUR PARENTAL RIGHTS AND YOU KNOW IN YOUR HEART YOU WERE “IN THE BEST INTEREST OF YOUR CHILD”, YOUR HEART FALLS TO THE FLOOR AND LOOKS UP AT GOD AND SAYS, “BUT I BELIEVED IN YOU.” THIS IS THE DAY YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO GO ON AND ALL THE EFFORT OF MAKING SURE EVERYTHING YOU DID TO PROTECT YOUR CHILD IS NO LONGER OF ANY KIND OF VALUE. BECAUSE CPS TARGETED YOU FOR A SOURCE OF REVENUE. NOW YOU ARE ON A LIST FOR ABUSIVE PARENTS AND ALL YOU DID WAS LOVE YOUR CHILD.

FACT: CPS DOES PLANT, FORGER, FRAUD, CUT AND PAST FROM OTHER CASES, USE OTHER PEOPLES CRIMINAL RECORDS IN PLACE OF YOUR OWN RECORD, FAKE DRUG TESTS, USE FALSE STATEMENTS, USE FALSE AND PLANTED WITNESSES. I PERSONALLY HAVE REAL CONCRETE EVIDENCE TO PROVE THIS AND WILL SHOW IT TO ANYONE AND EVERYONE WHO ASKS. PLEASE ASK. YOU CAN SEE MUCH OF IT ON MY WEB SITE (WWW.DONNELLYJUSTICE.ME)

CPS KNOWS ONCE THEY HAVE TAKEN YOUR CHILD AND YOUR RIGHTS TO YOUR CHILD, PARENTS ARE  LEFT IN SUCH  DEVASTATION BY THERE LOSS,  THAT THERE ISN’T ENOUGH ENERGY, MONEY, OR SUPPORT TO FILE OR AN APPEAL.  I READ A STATEMENT BY A FAMILY COURT  JUDGE THAT THE REMOVAL OF PARENTAL RIGHTS IS THE EQUIVALENT OF THE DEATH PENALTY FOR THE FAMILY AND SHOULD DONE AS THE LAST RESORT, BUT IT HAS BECOME THE NORM AND IS SUCH A DISREGARD FOR THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES OF GROWING UP MOST OF US SHARE.  THESE PEOPLE ARE CRIMINALS AND MUST BE STOPPED IF WE ARE TO SURVIVE AS A COUNTRY. A GOOD QUESTION TO ASK YOURSELF,  WHO WANTS TO FIGHT FOR A COUNTRY THAT SUPPORTS THE DESTRUCTION OF YOUR FAMILY?

I WILL BACK UP AND BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING SAID HEREIN, PLEASE GO DO THE RIGHT THING. PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN. EVERYTHING I HAVE WRITTEN HERE IS ON RECORD AND CAN BE VERY EASILY PROVED. FAMILIES ARE NOT PROTECTED AND USED AS A SOURCE OF INCOME, ISN’T THAT RIGHT ATTORNEY DANIEL VINSON? AND SOCIAL WORKER ANTOINE COLEY FROM MORENO VALLEY CPS OFFICE AND SUPERVISOR AMANDA SPRATLY, WITH DIRECTOR SUSAN LEOW’S UNMISTAKABLE OVERSIGHT USING MY FAMILY FOR OVERBILLING THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT , AS PROVEN BY YOUR OWN RECORDS. FOR BILLING THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WHEN WE DIDN’T EVEN HAVE A CASE OPEN. GO AHEAD CHALLENGE ME, I AM TRYING TO GET THIS INTO COURT ANYWAY.

Child declared at imminent risk of (future) neglect, by The Future Police (CPS)


Most people who encounter the so called CPS do indeed find it to be a very dishonest, harmful, fraudulent, oppressive, immoral totalitarian dictatorship that robs its so called clients or victims of not only their basic civil, democratic and constitutional rights, but also their basic inalienable human rights to raise children by treating them like caged animals, who must obey and have their babies taken.

 

The fact that they and their fellow oppressors in the legal system as with lawyers and the courts refusing to give such clients basic due process by not even letting them present their argument, while perpetrating outrageous lies to force seperation and distruction of the  family   by their captors (CPS) as exposed, many times, by numerous sources to ever not consider true. Just type CPS online and you get overwhelmed by horror stories

 

Child Protective Services role as the Child Protector but is really Secret Adoption Police, totalitarian BIG BROTHER dictatorship of the Family. The Family used to be the strength of our country but now has become a threat to Government. WHY? Why would the family become a threat to Government? I ask myself that question all the time. The only answer I can come up with is, because family shares knowledge of who to look out for and who not to trust. Why would this ever become a threat to anyone who is doing the right thing? This is the threat to the family a false government that doesn’t want anyone sharing free thought or ideas.

 

There is a proposal before the US Government in Agenda 29 to make community care givers in charge of raising all the children in the neighborhood run by CPS and, all being taught the government curriculum. This would take away any individuality left and all parents rights would go to the PARENT GOVERNMENT. How much more does our Government need to take away before this country wakes up. I have seen boys town in the news so many times and this is the governments ides of community upbringing, No Thank You. How many more kids do politicians have to abuse before people wake up. Just look up Boys Town and this is Governments Idea of child raising.

 

Foster care is just as bad as boys town. The government has proven itself to be the worst caregiver of children with children exposed to neglect and sexual abuse 9 times higher than homes being investigated by CPS of suspected abuse. CPS is the abuser. Parents who raise children may not be the best but they have an attachment to the child and at the least have a moral obligation to doing a good job raising the child. The first and foremost ability that the parent has that the government, foster care, boys town will never have or be able to offer is feeling needed and the belonging to famiy.

 

A child needs a sense of belonging and love that any successful parent gives. Parents may have what is considered by some as, I don’t like the way they raise there child but if the child is happy, LEAVE THE CHILD ALONE. CPS NEEDS TO SHUT THE FUCK UP AND LISTEN TO THE CHILD, pardon my french but I am passed off.

 

 

My child was very happy and he knows I love him and only care about his true best interest. You found no faults in my home and said in your report Donnelly was a happy loving chilld and the parents took good care of, but you still took my child for future possibility of neglect or harm. That makes CPS the future police. The first question that any investigator with fucking idea of investigation work should be to form a back ground opinion on how I raised my first 4 children?

 

 

My first four children were raised in my home and are all productive members with jobs, have never been in trouble, and came through there childhood spoiled and very loved but CPS with it’s infinite wisdom of unlicensed Social Worker Antoine Coley, Supervisor Amanda Spratley, approved directed Susan Leow, and the Great JUDGE RUSHTON followed by Judge God Monteroso determined my child was at imitate risk of future neglect, and said because in my wifes ex husband was not paying child support, even though I made well over 100,000 a year and did not need the extra money. Where the hell you come up with this determination, you lazy, child stealing for money POS for bonus, immoral abductor, terrorizing for pleasure sick fucks. If you don’t like my language, I have had it with CPS and I am standing up to a terrorizing government who has stolen an innocent child given by god for me to care for as my own. I have no intention of abandoning this obligation ever.

I was asked to share my opinion of Riverside County Judges and CPS with other families.


My response

I would absolutely love to share my opinion of RIVERSIDE COUNTY CPS JUDGES WITH YOU. But this would take so long to go over all the overwhelming evidence of false evidence being allowed into the courtroom, and not allowing parents on record to defend themselves.  Parents and children are being blatantly taken advantage of.

It should be required to disclose Dependency policies and procedures, such as a copy of the Dependency Quick Guide, A Dogbook for Attorneys Representing Children and Parents published by the state’s Administrative Office of the Courts. I personally have seen how the court accepts everything CPS says to be considered clear and convincing without CPS actually presenting any real evidence. Instead,  CPS just writes a scathing report stating that they have seen evidence.  This is completely bias on the side of CPS to not actually see the real evidence.  In my case, CPS presented another mans criminal record as if it was mine and NO ONE noticed and would not listen to me when I said something about it. This is clearly criminal.

 

Anyone who wants proof all you need do is write me and I will show you overwhelming evidence of fraud through out the CPS, county counsel and the Riverside County CPS court proceedings. Everything I am saying here is completely true so help me god . My law suit when it gets heard and it will is so damaging to all these people.

 

CPS falsified so many records to steal my child and had the assistance of every single person down the line including CPS attorneys, Judges, and Social Workers licensed and unlicensed. These people all think they are immune, I got news for them, NO ONE is immune from corruption and criminal activities.

 

Even my appellant attorney did not review the case or he would have seen the obvious, contradictions of their statements miss reporting and false reporting, substitution of reports, cut and pasting of certified documents by a state testing facility. The Attorneys’ unethical and intentional gross misconduct lead to the legal kidnapping of my child.

 

None of these people have any concern of the child’s real welfare. Every bit of evidence is already being sent to every single congressman, senators, and anyone else who needs to know what is going on here.  Please write me, this can not happen to anymore children.

 

OMG what is going on in this country allowing our most precious gifts given to us by God to take care of and guide into adulthood as a decent person. Children stolen from their home will never understand why this happened to them.  There is no medication CPS can force a child to take that will ever take this damage away except returning these children home to their loving parents. Be aware that CPS social workers tell the children that their parents do not care about them. Talk about emotional abuse!

 

In May 2011 I reported this corruption and legal kidnapping scheme to the FBI. When I informed the Social Worker, AntoineColey, he laughed and said, “The FBI is not going to do anything.”  Well, the FBI’s response was, “We are not in the position to challenge CPS.”  The FBI is in charge of investigating corruption AND kidnappings. So WHO is in charge of protecting our children besides the parent who gets arrested if they take possession back of their child?

 

Please share this story and information. The more people who know about this illegal kidnapping ring the less power they will have and could make all the difference in the world to all our American families.

 

People please pay attention to my words and read them very clearly, it is with the utmost respect for children and to end this abuse of our children and the never ending pain for parents. If people only had the information provided in the Dependency policies and procedures,  (Dependency Quick Guide, A Dogbook for Attorneys Representing Children and Parents) published by the state’s Administrative Office of the Courts  these  kidnappings would not be happening.

 

In closing. What does this tell you?  This is intentional.

What is the reason? Money funding from CAPTA and Title IV-E of the social security act, and Youakim funding.

Far more money and incentives is given for out of home placement placing the child up for adoption then to try to help the family.

 

Please tell everyone you know to read this. Do not just let anymore children be taken from loving homes. Even if you don’t think this will happen to you.

 

 No one will help you after your child gets taken accept knowledge and preparation for the kind of people you are dealing with. Then you may have a fighting chance.

 

My motives,   I want to finish raising my beautiful baby boy who I love absolutely and completely so very much.

And to stop this from happening to any other children and parents,   from going through the heart ace that never ends.

 

Thank You

Beating CPS, there is hope.


A Southern California mother, Deanna Fogarty-Hardwick, filed a lawsuit against Child Protective Services (CPS). She claimed caseworkers had unjustly taken her children in February 2000. The children were ages 6 and 9 at the time. The accusation against her was that she was telling the children that their father was trying to take them away from her.

Because of this, the children were placed in the Orangewood Children’s Home. The children were kept there for a month, then transferred to a foster home for two months. Eventually they were placed in their father’s custody, and the mother had to endure the humiliation of supervised visits.

Another family destroyed!

But wait! The mother recovered from the injustice done to her enough to file a federal lawsuit based on violations of Constitutional law. With the help of an attorney, Shawn A. McMillan, they went after the Orange County (California) Department of Social Services and three caseworkers.

In the lawsuit the mother alleged the caseworkers intentionally misled the court, fabricated evidence against her, and hid exculpatory evidence. She also alleged that caseworkers withheld information from the judge regarding the emotional distress of the children, who wanted to be with their mother. Also alleged was that a supervisor in the agency refused Kinship Care rights to relatives without good cause, forcing the children to stay longer in foster care.

On March 23, 2007, after a seven-week civil trial, the jury found the Department of Social Services and caseworkers Marcie Vreeken and Helen Dwojak liable for violating the mother’s parental rights and violating the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.

Deanna Fogarty-Hardwick was awarded 4.9 million dollars. The jury also awarded her an additional $5,900 in punitive damages. The large settlement was intended to ‘send a message’ to Child Protective Services bureaucrats.

In a press release after the settlement the attorney gave this list of illegal practices of the caseworkers involved:

… detention of children without a finding of imminent danger or serious physical injury;

… interviewing children without a parent present;

… continuing detention after learning there was no basis to do so;

… using trickery and fabricated evidence;

… failing to adequately train employees regarding the Constitutional rights of parents.

The attorney added:

“My client Deanna Fogarty-Hardwick, is satisfied by the Jury’s recognition of the harm that the defendants caused her. But, obviously, no amount of money can ever undo the damage inflicted upon Ms. Fogarty-Hardwick or her children. We expect the Jury‘s 4.9 million dollar verdict will cause the County of Orange and its Department of Social Services to implement procedures to prevent future abuses by County social workers and protect other families.”

My opinion: I consider this to be outrageously good news. More people should be filing charges against CPS, but they don’t, mainly because they have a hard time finding attorneys willing to represent them. The attorneys know that CPS maims families by splitting them up using trumped up, inaccurate, or fictitious accusations. But it seems most attorneys don’t have the guts to fight CPS. Perhaps it isn’t a politically correct move to sue this overly powerful agency, yet this is what needs to be done if we’re ever going to be able to stop caseworkers from unfairly decimating families.

CPS makes money to take your Children, and never return them. State Kidnapping for profit


William Burns writes.

What made child stealing profitable for CPS

To address the obvious free-for-all snatching of children that CAPTA had stimulated, the Committee crafted new federal legislation with the intent of creating accountability and clearer guidelines for the states child welfare agencies. During the crafting of P.L. 96-272 Chairman Miller’s concern was that the federal government was footing the bill for warehousing children in institutions and inappropriate settings without accountability. In 1980 the Adoption Assistance and Child Welfare Act, P.L. 96-272, was enacted. The act included provisions that “reasonable efforts” be made to prevent children from being unnecessarily removed from their homes and placed in foster care. Although CPS has always tried to buffalo the media and the public that they are involved with families due to some sort of horrific child abuse or neglect, there has never been any debate among national policy makers, researchers, and federal agencies that the vast majority of CPS cases are due to poverty or frivolous/social reasons and do not contain elements of real child abuse. If the cases did actually involve acts of abuse they would be criminal, identified and investigated by law enforcement, rather than social workers, and would be prosecuted as such. P.L. 96-272 came into effect partly because Congress determined that a large number of children were being unnecessarily removed from their homes, and, once removed, they were lost in the limbo of foster care for years, many until they just grew too old, when they were then put on the streets at the age of 18.

The Child Welfare League of America testified before a senate subcommittee: “In fact, there were many instances then, as now, of children being removed unnecessarily from their families. It is important to recognize that children are almost always traumatized by removal from their own families.” So, accountability from each states child protection agency was also written in. To receive the federal money the states would have to submit an annual report to the federal government, known as an AFCARS report, that specifically accounts for each child in state care. ACLU Children’s Rights Project attorney, Marcia Robinson Lowry, explained in her testimony to Congress: “As a condition of federal funding, states must have a reasonable information system to identify children in federally-funded state custody.” These requirements were implemented in 1980. Up until 1999 some states were still not filing their federally required AFCARS report to the federal government. According to Jeffrey Locke, former Commissioner of Social Services, the excuse to the legislature was that they “couldn’t figure out how towork their computer system.”

The “reasonable efforts” requirements were designed to address these issues by requiring the state’s child welfare agencies to have specific investigation and assessment policies to minimize frivolous removals, to provide “services” to address and ameliorate conditions that were detrimental to the child’s well-being; to place children with relatives when removal from the home was absolutely necessary; and make efforts to reunite families in a timely fashion. Methods to audit and track compliance with federal requirements were also built in. The states were to establish “citizen review panels” comprised of a specifically designated representation of the population which would include not only members of collateral professional communities involved in child protection, but “parents, foster parents, and former foster children.” Each state was to have at least three citizen review panels. The panels would essentially act as a standing jury of peers and would review CPS cases. Twenty years after P.L. 96- 272 went into effect the citizen review panels have never been established in most states.

Another means of creating accountability was to have the federal authority, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, conduct compliance audits, which are known as Section 427 reviews. The method of enforcement that Congress devised to ensure that the states followed the federal law was to provide incentive funds to the states that documented their compliance with the federal regulations. The states would self-certify compliance, but could be subjected to “periodic” 427 reviews by the Dept. of Health & Human Services. Were the states to find themselves in non-compliance they would simply return the incentive funds. It would seem that providing cash to agencies that are allowed to self-document compliance is a somewhat less than intelligent system. It would be interesting to track down exactly how much money the state’s child “protective” agencies have returned to the government because they found themselves in non-compliance. Gee, maybe this is rocket science.

Like CAPTA, P.L. 96-272 could only have worked if the federal government demanded compliance and meticulous accountability, and they imposed sanctions for non-compliance. Even better–criminal charges for racketeering for intentional fraud. Mark Soler, director of the National Youth Law Center in California explained:

“The Department of Health & Human Services has failed to promulgate meaningful regulations to implement the Adoption Assistance and Child Welfare Act. It has applied even the minimal federal regulations that were developed in an inconsistent and arbitrary manner, and only token implementation of the laws protecting children.’

Even when HHS finds overwhelming evidence of lack of compliance during 427 reviews, no sanctions are imposed and they continue to keep the fed $$$ pouring in – in violation of their own regulations. Not so much as a slap on the hand or even token admonishment. Certainly explains how CPS developed their arrogance and contempt for any authority – because there is none. Their confidence that they are free from the feds insisting on compliance with the law is well illustrated by the foster care numbers which increased dramatically after CAPTA began feeding federal dollars into the state’s child protection agencies, then dropped equally dramatically after the enactment of P.L.96-272, which was supposed to create more specific federal regulation and accountability. However, once the state agencies saw that the federal government was not enforcing compliance, the foster care numbers soared once again.

Michael Petit, Deputy Director of the Child Welfare League of America, stated in his testimony before Congress: “A 427 is a meaningless process for most of the states. It represents no kind of sanctions to the states whatsoever for non-compliance.” Marcia Robinson Lowry told Congress: “States are passing HHS audits with systems in which no reasonable person could consider that children are being well treated. It is virtually impossible to fail a 427 audit.”

The initial concept of “reasonable efforts” was the only conclusion that any rational person could come to: rather than disrupt children’s lives, and traumatize them by seizing them from non- abusive situations and placing them with strangers (who are often no better, and sometimes far worse), assist families in overcoming their obstacles and problems by providing support and services. The idea never worked, though, because it has always been more profitable to too many to remove children rather than keep them at home. Rather than offer support and simple, practical services to families CPS forged contracts with vendors. Now private businesses, under the guise of “service providers”, could mushroom into existence knowing that their sugar daddy, CPS, would provide a never-ending flow of coerced clients. The market potential is unlimited – potentially every mother, father, grandparent, and child in the country. Rather than offering practical, meaningful services that are germane to the families circumstances, CPS clients are ordered to engage in “services” with CPS-contracted vendors; special interest groups who are dependent on CPS for their income and profit by maintaining the levels of children in foster care, and whose interests are protected by a bureaucracy intent on securing it’s own survival and protecting unlimited growth.

The extent of which CPS is allowed to continue to operate while being so far out of compliance with the existing state and federal laws is mind boggling. It would be a challenge to find any other agency in our countries history that operated in such gross and blatant violation of the law with absolutely no intervention from the administration. Tens of millions of tax dollars are being squandered on a system that is destroying families and causing lifelong emotional ruin to children – and those are the lucky ones who live through it.

The most egregious area of outright criminal fraud is CPS’s practice of filing their federally required documentation of compliance in secrecy through the courts. The federal foster care reimbursements are channeled through the Title IV-E section of the Social Security Act. Each states child welfare agency enters into a contract with the federal government, which is referred to as their Title IV-E state plan. It is this contract that spells out the responsibilities that CPS must, by law, comply with in order to receive their federal funding. To document compliance with the fed regs CPS must file a form through the courts in each individual case. In Massachusetts these forms are referred to as a “29-C.” 42 U.S. Code, ss 672 reads:

“These requirements are not mere formalities. The Finance Committee of Congress, in preparing its summary for final passage of the Adoption Assistance and Child Welfare Act of 1980, P.L. 96-272, stated; ` The Committee is aware of allegations that the judicial determination requirement (sic: that a judge makes a determination that a child needs to be removed from the home) can become a mere pro forma exercise in paper shuffling to obtain federal funding. While this could occur in some instances, the Committee is unwilling to accept as a general proposition that the judiciaries of the States would so lightly treat a responsibility placed upon them by federal statute for the protection of children.”

1980 U.S. Code Cong. and Admin. News: “A judicial determination of those efforts (reasonable efforts, as defined in the Act) serves to closely examine, in the case of each individual child, whether reasonable efforts were made to keep the family intact.” In accordance with the federal requirements the Massachusetts legislature enacted G.L. c.119 ss 29b, which requires all judges to certify that the Department of Social Services met the obligation grounded in the federal statute of making reasonable efforts to protect the child short of removing him or her from the parents, and, if the child was removed, making it possible for the child to return home in a timely manner. Rather than “closely examining”, in Massachusetts this grave responsibility is carried out by judges by rubber stamping stacks of 29c forms that simply contain three “yes” or “no” check boxes. In many instances making three check marks is even too much work for Massachusetts judges and they rubber stamp the forms while leaving them blank – never mind actually verifying that the “reasonable efforts” were made. In return for these forms DSS receives it’s federal money.

The three questions are:

1. Continuation in the home is contrary to the wellbeing of the child?

2. Reasonable efforts have been made prior to the placement of the child to prevent or eliminate the need for removal of the child from his/her home?

3. Reasonable efforts have been made to make it possible for the child to return to his parent/guardian?

Children’s Bureau (the federal authority). She told me that the federal government was under the impression that all parties were present in the court room at the time of the filing of the 29c’s, so that the parents attorneys had the opportunity to object, rebut, or verify the “reasonable efforts.” In reality, no one sees the federal forms except the judges and a representative of DSS’s main legal department. Attorneys ask us how we ever “got our hands on” the 29c forms, as we have never yet met an attorney who has seen the forms, let alone have been notified of the filing hearing. We even have forms on which the “no” boxes were checked, yet the children were still removed from their homes and federal funds collected for them.

By seizing children illegally in violation of the Title IV-E requirements, then filing false documents in secrecy through the courts to obtain federal funding, CPS is defrauding the federal government with intent. CPS should be subject to investigation and prosecution by the U.S. Attorneys Office. They should be held liable for the restitution of all illegally obtained funds, and prosecuted for perjury, obstruction of justice, and the fraudulent collection of federal funds under the False Statements and Accountability Act of 1996, P.L. 104-292 110 stat 3459, 42 U.S.C.S. 670-679a; P.L. 96-272; C.F.R. part 1356; and Title IV-E. I have discussed this issue with the Inspector Generals Office and they felt it could possible be prosecuted under RICO, yet they have also failed to act, possibly because it isn’t just CPS/DSS who is committing federal fraud, but also the judges who are signing the documents.

In 1988 George Miller, the original architect of P.L. 96-272, and Chairman of the congressionally appointed Select Committee on Children, Youth, and Families, recognized the fraud being committed in the name of child “protection”, and stated:

“What has been demonstrated here is that you have a system that is simply in contempt. This system has been sued and sued and orders have been issued and they just continue on their merry way. And HHS just continues to look the other way. You have a system that is not only out of control, it’s illegal at this point. What you are really engaged in is state sponsored child abuse

CPS destruction of the family for profit, I can’t imagine a more NAZI like agency.  I will never stop fighting corrupt business ruining lives. The only people who believe CPS helps families are the families CPS hasn’t helped.

Lawless America the Documentary, the Testimony, the fight for change


Image

I am part of a legal battle going on here in the US called Lawless America. We have a documentary that is do to start filming anytime now and every person involved is doing a testimony to congress about the illegal practices of the courts . My prayers to God, my heart and passion for my family has gotten me this far. After I started researching CPS and found out how corrupt this organization is, I never expected to get this far. I never would have believed and could not have ever conceived this happening to a parent who loves his children so completely.

This is very personal and close subject to my heart, as my family was just devastated by the corrupt JV family court, and I have witnessed the complete destruction of any legal process with out any actual proof of anything. This judge made a complete joke out of our constitutional, human and civil rights as parents. To pass judgment without being shown proof of some kind, any kind at all, shows no moral fortitude of decency, as well as respect for the American families that he serves.

I don’t know if people even pay attention to what is actually happening in these courts today, and that we have already lost most of our rights, to a fare court system in most of this country. The court has been hurting people with finding reports clear and convincing without real evidence for years now.

We need to make everyone aware of this corrupted court system, and the battle to fight with most of our  constitutional, human and civil rights being  ignored,  the  judges do this all the time. Judges make their own laws when their is no jury to keep them on record and in line. We have lost our rights in court with many cases of families being destroyed.  I have written a book on this and spoken with many families in the court house. In every single case the same story exist. The parents side never gets on record. I will continue to fight for the rights of parents until something changes. I don’t care if I have to petition the entire country, CPS WILL CHANGE THE WAY THEY TREAT PARENTS.  If you have any doubts, people have posted videos and blogs all over our nation of the injustice for profit taking place in our court system. I will know this everyday for the rest of my life.

I want you to know, I promote our cause every day,  every chance I get,  to anyone that will listen,  I know how important this is.  This is the most important thing I will ever do,  the people we could reach with this wake up call, and the children this could save, as well as the lives this could change, is worth more than I can state.  I am so proud of what we are doing. I have been a parent for 27  years and never one case of my children getting  hurt in my care. Did this get on record? No.   I was a baseball coach,  judge wouldn’t know,  nothing I did for my children got on record.  I wasn’t  aloud to present evidence.   Even though the CPS worker has only 3 months of training, her word is complete authority and dictator over parents.

My child being taken, awakened me to a corrupt government supported court system, that has to change. I have been devoted to this subject, and everyone around me knows that CPS was wrong,  I am a very loving dad,  my children are my world and when CPS took only my youngest child,  I was destroyed.  When I got upset and yelled at the CPS worker for trying to take my son,  she said,  see your upset,  this is a sign of being on drugs.  What, am I on Mars or what?  Of course I am upset.  She doesn’t care and only intended to cause pain in my life. This is manipulation of the system.  The fact that my ex-mother in law worked at CPS for 35 years in the same county is also a conflict of interest for most legal courts and should have put the case into another county, if it was real,  this is not a battle that follows,” court of law process”. Everything you have heard about CPS is true.

Everyone in my life is very aware of the injustice here of our court system.  I have a very devoted extended family, who has put thousands of dollars into helping me fight for my child, and still we were  separated, with no truth in the least on record, only the fabrication and degradation of facts, the social worker wanted in the report, to make me look as bad as possible. When I presented evidence supporting my devotion to my children, and the proof of how the CPS worker was taking my son out of revenge, because I was trying to file a law suit. This woman is very aware of the hurt she has caused my family and must be a hollow, angry human being. Who can she do this job and feel like a decent human being. It would be different if the facts were real and not invented, and fact of getting paid to remove children, without facts in itself creates corruption. Why can’t they get incentives to help families . Any parent, that is a good parent, always wants to be a better parent. OMG,  This has created a organization getting paid to steal children legally, in which parents can’t fight back.  Could they be more immoral?

I have plenty of proof of my case, just can’t get it on record in this very corrupted money hungry court system. I will however show my proof to congress. I was part of family preservation here in Riverside County while I was fighting on the county level.  This Family Preservation was set up to help stop CPS from stealing children,  and this didn’t help.  There is just to much money offered for the adoption out of family and not the preservation of family. What a disstructive family court system we have.  My son will always hurt because he knows, his daddy loves him more than anything and there is nothing I wouldn’t do for his happiness.  I guess, I am just telling you how passionate I am for my family, and this battle for better. I will never stop fighting this CPS court system and my son deserves a every bit of strength I can muster. CPS KNOW THIS, I AM GOING TO EXPOSE EVERYTHING ABOUT THE ILLEGAL PRACTICE OF LAW, IN EVERY CASE I FIND.

Always a dedicated dad,

Conspiracy Theory or Conspiracy Fact? What makes a conspiracy?


Conspiracy Theory or Conspiracy Fact?

Well the fact is, when one or more people talk about anything in secrecy it is now a conspiracy. Misinformation or a lie is conspiracy! Once you learn any facts about a conspiracy it now becomes theory. Then you add some more facts and becomes probable. Then when you find motive it starts to become fact. Here is my thoughts to enlighten you and give hope. The reason they are called conspiracy is to belittle or give a feeling to the unbeliever as to be crazy or degrade. When I was a child, I had the most important teacher to influence my life in a fantastic way, I will be eternally grateful to him. He taught me to question everything and there is never a stupid question only stupid answers. This article is dedicated to Mr. Boetini who lit my curiosity hat on fire.

I run into this question a lot lately, basically because I investigate so many stories, that we get told by our government and the main stream media. I have found myself caught up in such bullshit by the mainstream media, they have become my last source of information, I want to yell! , people wake the F up!  We as a country have been warned by so many so many good people, all the way back to President Eisenhower and Kennedy about the military industrial complex, he warned us about the military and how they would become out of control if we didn’t watch them. We have been at war almost ever since. This is a fact, learn it or throw it away, it is up to you. Every single media source in this country is owned by the same four companies. Question! Do you think this is by mistake? Their is not one news story that gets told to the people that is not approved by this government out of fear of arrest for crimes against the government. You thought we had freedom of the press. We don’t! We do have freedom of the internet until November 9th of this year 2012. After that all stories will be censored as well and you will be back in your box. It is time you started listening and reading what comes out of the white house. Not every bill gets television, but they do get internet. I know what you are thinking. Conspiracy? Your Dam right!  This is hidden in plane site.

I want to give you this question and you need to think seriously  before you answer. Where is your line in the sand? When will you say enough is enough? Will you take a stand to defend your liberty? We have already lost if you don’t know. The hippy’s had it right, but they have long since converted. What good is there yet another book with the same old interpretation? A Comfort zone and these tend to blind reality and make us complacent in our denial even when people are being murdered.  If these well and accredited sources are so useful and true to you as media, if they serve you so well? Why are still unenlightened? Why do you seek to learn more? Do you feel manipulated? Do you seek truth and decency and get neither?

If you need their extremely linked set of sources for information and proof, then return to your source and be prepared to reinterpret them in a radically different light. Otherwise your progress has surly ceased. Accepting so few sources as the truth creates a ceiling of knowledge you will never surpass.

I have to see it to believe it is the sort of thing I get all the time. Usually uttered out of confusion denial or by the fool who’s head is filled to the brim with countless things that are shown as a popularity contest and considered truth by many, who haven’t ever witnessed it. . Yet say, they don’t believe in conspiracy, isn’t that a conspiracy because you have not witnessed or done the research from more than one source? You know I am right. My intentions are not malice; I am indeed concerned for everyone, this is my crutch.  After being lied too so many times by our government, we can’t let the mainstream media influence our lives without a diverse understanding. Here is a piece of advice that I have found profound in my understanding. Go to small local media, where the action is, listen to the story’s, then read the soldiers on their blogs and the guilt these men are going through, as many foreign countries as you can find,then listen to the then the mainstream media. This became wake up experience. I found the mainstream media lies in every single event to get support of whatever cause the FALSE government is doing.

I found it to be scary, I am not saying this to get a scare you. This is met to alert you! Start looking at what we are manipulated by. If we support these unjust causes of war, this does make us guilty. Whenever people are being killed in the name of America, we are targeted as conspirators and we should know what we are being brought into. Murder is happening for oil in our name. Remember this was started as a government for the people, by the people, and of the people. Know this, we are not over their fighting for our interest as a people. This government doesn’t have our interest at heart. Instead of telling me what you think about my blog. Do your own investigating, knowledge is power. My fear became empowering to me, now I am telling you. See how that works? It’s a beautiful thing, freedom. Use it or lose it.

I may not agree with your stand, but I do agree with your right to say it. God Bless You, Now go do the right thing. Take a stand.

The practices of CPS: Funded by the Federal Government, This Agency Fails The Family


by: donnellyjustice

The taking of our children has become more common than people realize. According to some of the most recent reports by HHS, the family possesses a threat to the government. I don’t understand that thinking and it makes no sense.  Sounds like a way to continue destroying families for money.  The family is the cornerstone of America. Children need their parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, you know, the FAMILY. The government already has proof that parents do a much better job raising children. We should not allow this to continue. I am going to start posting the actual reports, with the social worker’s names on it, and the alleged drug test results from my case that prove the social workers lie and fabricate evidence.

The State of California and the federal government are allowing CPS to abuse children and inflict terrorism on families. Accepting false allegations from a known child abuser on the Child Abuse Hotline place innocent parent and families at risk of being railroaded by this unfair and bias system. Parents are never allowed to face the accuser in a court of law. All evidence allowing this to take place is based on an allegation not proof. CPS comes out like a Nazi organization using coercion and threatens the parents with lies of losing your children and saying they have proof. Scaring the parents until they feel insane, just to get them to sign a case plan, as CPS steals your children.  Our government is giving incentives for social workers to manipulate the family into taking services even though everything is just a lie. School teachers are pushing children to speak badly of their parent’s actions at home so they can call CPS. The court takes the opinion of CPS over top of the parents who are losing all rights to protect their children. We have to stop this. I love my children; we can’t live this way or continue to except this treatment. We need to change things today.

Our nation’s children are no longer safe in their homes, schools, or anywhere they go. Far too often, the threat is not from traditional trouble makers such as school bullies, class-cutters, and neighborhood drug-dealers but rather from the adults entrusted with the care of our children. Social workers, unlicensed social workers, intolerant and extremist teachers, school administrators, police officers, district attorneys, and judges are a serious and growing threat to our children. They believe that children who make a minor mistake or dare to express an opinion or personal preference that is not in compliance with government thought control and anti-free-speech policies should be treated like felons. Even having to attend to basic bodily functions like using the bathroom and eating in schools controlled by these extremists can be a threat to the safety of our children.

Our friendly faced uncaring government goons have made up euphemisms for their agendas. Given their limited intelligence, their choice phrases must be succinct. We end up with a school administration that tries to force children on medication for reasons like he has too much energy. This was my fight when my son was in the first grade. His teacher, and I will call her  Mrs. Pain, called CPS because she insisted my son was hyperactive and needs Ritalin. I told her no, what he needs is a teacher who spends time with her students. CPS was called into the school and told me if I did not get my son put on this Ritalin hey would take him and the rest of my children.

I refused to get my son put on speed to make the teacher happy. So the doctor tried my son on other drugs to get the desired affect Mrs. Pain was after. After watching my son go through all kinds of side effects for a week, I took him off the medicine. CPS ordered me to see a judge so I could be served a court order to continue to give my son drugs. I told the judge my son is not hyper he is a very intelligent and just wants the teacher to like him. He is nervous because she is always upset with him for standing at his desk, he does the work, gets good grades, and he is a very good boy. I am concerned about all the side effects these drugs have on him. I refuse to continue to treat my son like this. I told the judge that if I was allowed to go to school with my son every day, I will show the school how wonderful of a child he is and help out for free every day. The teacher and the social worker both battled me on my offer, but the judge said that was never offered before and he would be willing to give it a shot. If it did not work then I would be forced to give him the Meds or risk losing him.

The following Monday I went to school with my son. I was shocked and disappointed in the location the teacher had my son sitting which was in the far corner on the other side of the class, away from everyone. The teacher said to me as soon as my son stood up for the first time while I was there, “See, he is doing it again. He is out of control!” Then she yelled at him to sit down. I explained to her how he suffers from chronic leg spasms and that is why he stands, to alleviate the pain. I then brought his desk back over to the group of 6 desks he was in before he had been moved. I continued to work with my son everyday for the rest of that school year. I took off of work to do that and he improved so much because I was concerned about his feelings and what he was going through. That year he won just about every award that teacher had to offer. To this day he is a well-adjusted very hard working young man. I couldn’t be more proud. Don’t be so quick to judge children and place them on drugs for something that is just a failure to communicate and a lack of parental attention. If he would have been put on that drug he could have been addicted for life. Because, you know, when the kids on Ritalin grow up, they take them off of it and then what do they do? They score speed on the street. They are allowed to take it when they are kids but not when they are adults. That is so stupid.  Children are not experiments for doctors and teachers. They are our children and parents know what is best for our children. Government doesn’t need to be in every child’s life because a teacher makes a call to CPS. These schools seem to have completely lost the concept of being an inspiration to young children. Rather the mentality is: “Oh an active child, oh no! Calm them down, give them medication and blame the parents.

One of the new things I hear around schools is “zero tolerance” and I believe that this is one catch-phrase invented by “safety minded” school officials. No tolerance for creativity so they feel they must suppress individuality, ban freedom of speech, enforce dogmatic thinking, and criminalize  opinions that are counter to the teachers nerves is what it basically means. Coming from a more sensible age in which I could chose the color of my clothes and a pocket knife was not a weapon of mass destruction but rather a basic tool that many kids carried to school, it seems to me that kids today should be raising civil disobedience groups and learning guerrilla warfare tactics after they have been exposed to this extremism. But oddly it seems to be gradually zapping many of them into mind-numbed drones. Or maybe they are too busy playing Grand Theft Auto and Halo to know that sometimes criminals and conflicts are real.

The corruption in government knowing everything because we know how to get money for kids is perverse. “Kids for Cash” is another catch-phrase invented by somebody in the government, quite possibly by thousands of them at about the same time. Social workers realized that when they see smiling little kids, they think of vacation money, large bonuses in their pockets, so it was a natural expression of their intent to use other people’s children for their own economic security. Although it’s not clear which government agency invented it first, many of them, from the courts to “CPS” to schools, are living by it. Seldom is anything done to distract the government from viewing our children as money sources and pawns for profit except in the most bizarre and extreme cases that even the goons are embarrassed by it. I suspect when something is done to temporarily divert the greedy goons from monetizing our children, it is only because these extreme.

This is becoming so hurtful to take control over parents and destructive to the children as well as the rest of the family. Parents treat their kids with much more love and care, even according to National statistics, than CPS but they keep saying they are out to help children, when they take them from homes. When are we as Americans going to get sick of government taking control over our lives and doing what money commands? Their motives are so clear; CPS doesn’t care about my child, your child or any children, just as long as they get their money. If you knew your child would be molested in CPS care, would you let your child be taken still? This happens way too often. No, you would fight to protect your child. What happened to that stand up and fight for what’s right America used to have? Our children are getting hurt by the people pay to protect them.

Welcome to my newest Blog pages, and why I started


Welcome to my blog site. I went through a major battle in my life over the last few years, and found out I am not alone. I was so complacent and thought I had things under control, then, I had a wake up call that will haunt me the rest of my life. I spend a tremendous amount of time doing research on current events around the world. What I found out is that our news media not only doesn’t tell us anything about what is really going on, but they feed us so much misinformation and out right lies about events in our country and around the world.

My blogs are not taken from one site or one day, I do research after hearing a story I wouldn’t normally believe. Something really strange happened as a result of that, I woke up. I found out most of the stories that have the feeling of disbelief or I just don’t want to think that way, turn out to be true. I’m not talking little green men but corruption by our government,  to do crimes I couldn’t even fathom 5 years ago. So I will continue to write blogs, even if you don’t like what I have to say or are in disbelief, that is yours to handle, or do some research. If I am able to get even a few people to wake up and research anything for themselves, then I have done what I set out to do. Make a small dent in the right direction. Only when you learn things of such injustice will you ever become proactive in the fight for decency.

To many people are being hurt in ways that can never be undone including my family and myself, I don’t like saying only if anymore, that cost me such a toll,  I can hardly deal with it. This is the route I chose back to feeling OK. If I can make a difference in changing the amount of people’s lives being destroyed by hateful, corrupt, government greed. Just maybe by spreading the word and helping others, is what this country needs more of.

Words to the wise.  Take five minuets out of your day, and do something kind for someone else to bring a smile to their face.  When your driving instead of flipping someone the bird, wave and smile, it may calm their anger.  When waiting in line, smile and be polite. Tell your spouse and children everyday how proud of them you are and how much you love them. When they are gone it’s forever and happens instantly. There is no place in life for regret, it will tug at your soul as only if.

Most of my blogs will be about making people aware. Knowledge is power. Have a great day.
