If I were to write to the judge who terminated my parental rights I would tell him that I am so sorry. I’m sorry that he took on more responsibility than he could handle as it is obvious that he has had NO TIME TO READ THE DEPARTMENT’S REPORTS OR QUESTION THEM WHATSOEVER.
I am also sorry that you believed their bullshit they spewed from their filthy mouths that I was such a bad parent. If you had the TIME TO READ you may have noticed that Rushton let CPS submit documents that were completely fabricated and forged. I would also like to apologise for taking up your precious time since you were so busy that you didn’t have it (time) to READ the reports that the social workers wrote or the attachments which included fabrications as well as another man’s criminal record being misrepresented as mine. If you hadn’t been so busy maybe you would have been able to save my son from the loss of his ENTIRE FAMILY and the love he received from them. Maybe if you had the time you would surely noticed that the criminal record submitted by the Department in February 2012, was the wrong William Burns who has a different middle name but same first and last, was born 10 years before me and/or noticing that, in fact, that I was in custody on the date of that man’s latest crime. I am so sorry that CPS mislead you by tricking you into believing that I had a very long drug history by using that man’s record. What a shame, you have been duped, Sir. You see I have never been charged or convicted of any Health & Safety Codes including under the influence, possession, sales or manufacturing of drugs whatsoever. I submitted test after test the entire time my case was open and not one of them was positive. This is why I was awarded full custody at the end of our first case well, that and I had proven to be a protective parent and the children were safe in my care. In December of 2010 Kristine Vernier submitted a falsified document that didn’t even have a name on it. In fact there was no information whatsoever that indicated it was any person’s test. No name, no ID, no lab, no specimen ID, no collection site, no certified scientist or doctor, no chain of custody, but the words on it said positive and despite a letter written by Vernier on CPS letterhead and left on my front door which stated, “Your drug test came back negative.”. I did give my lawyer a copy of this letter but it is not in the official record. I was told that it wasn’t relevant. But that document with no name was the reason Rushton removed my children after having returned them at the detention hearing. I know that you were not on the bench for that hearing but if you were afforded the time to READ the whole case you would
have surely seen it and questioned the Department because you are a good and decent person and I know you wouldn’t tolerate the Department fabricating evidence. You would never just stand by and let a family go through this kind of torture from malicious acts by people just sucking the federal government dry. That would be immoral and unethical, not to mention a violation of your oath. The stripping of one’s parental rights without reasonable cause or due process (fabricating evidence and committing perjury does not constitute due process, its an abuse of power) is extremely devastating to the parents, of course, but the poor little children are the VICTIMS. The public entrusts that Child Protective Services are REALLY doing what they say and Juvenile Dependency Judges are supposed to ensure parent’s rights, children’s rights and hold the Department accountable. Without enough time to READ you are truly doing the public a DIS-SERVICE. I do have one question though, now that you have been on that bench for over a year, have you been able to get organized enough to have more time to READ? I SURE HOPE SO because the most precious gift from God in a parents life, to me, my wife and my whole family, is their children. I hope you have discovered by now that CPS is so blatantly against people, other than themselves, raising children. That is just what it seems like anyway. But perhaps its just job security that they do what they do.
I have been a parent for 29 years. I have never been an absent parent, I was awarded full custody of ALL six of my children. I have always worked and supported them with the exception of the year that I took off so my second son, Stephen, would not be forced to take Ritalin. When he was in first grade, a teacher wanted me to put my son on this drug (which is an amphetamine) but I fought tooth and nail to stop it. CPS got involved too. I would do anything for the safety and protection of my kids so I offered to go to school every single day and help out this teacher. You cannot dispute this fact, just ask Sherron Logan (if you do not know who she is ask McPhee). I can list about one hundred more things that make me a decent father. How the hell could I have ever been considered a “danger” to my son, for what, drugs? Do you have any idea how crazy that is?
I will be damned if some stressed-out, overworked, unlicensed social worker, being pushed by superiors, comes into my life and within 5 minutes thinks they have some kind of supernatural power to determine that I am a “danger” to my child. But that is not really what they do, they just have a goal which is $$$$$$. So, they steal children for federal funding and to ensure them the money when they have NO EVIDENCE whatsoever they fabricate it. Meanwhile, they know full well that the children are safe. These people write fantasy reports, creating imaginary people in them because they do not describe the real people. Let’s assume for a moment, that you were falsely accused of doing drugs and perpetrated as a “dangerous” person simply because you rescued your child from these people who completely railroaded you. What would you do, sir, if this had happened to you and YOUR children? Don’t say it wouldn’t happen, just IMAGINE.
Yes, I rescued my son from CPS but you called it “kidnapping” and “abducting” and everyone claimed it happened twice. My father-in-law was there to tell the truth but no one called him to the stand and that was because it would have been detrimental to the Department’s case. With all due respect, that if you paid any attention to the countless abuses and deaths that occur (more often) in foster care you may have done the same in my position. Sir, if you truly have any decency or moral bone in your body, which of course you do, the Department is just tricking you, you would have acknowledged that my acts were that of PROTECTING him, even the cops stated, on the record, that they did not feel he was in “danger”. I was prosecuted, falsely, because Rushton, McPhee, Purnell and Loew made some phone calls. What really baffles me, Sir, is that it appears, from the transcripts, that you were extremely favorable to and bias toward the Department and Purnell, sustaining all of her objections and overruled all of LaCiliento’s and Casey’s objections. As I re-read these transcripts, it appears that you judged me without any thought about the cause of my extraordinary actions of rescuing my son or whether or not there could be any shared responsibility. Maybe, if the case was before you now and you had more time to READ, you would think to yourself, “Gosh, this man is really attached to his son and for some reason he felt that CPS was not doing the right thing and he was so desperate that he risked his freedom to protect his son possibly from being abused in foster care. I should ask him what the problem was. The child was obviously never hurt or abused and the Department’s entire case rests on “risk” due to an alleged dirty hair follicle test. I should look into this a bit more.”. Maybe now you would have more time to consider my ordinary actions as well such as whether or not I can maintain employment whether employed as a W-4 or a 1099, whether I can and do provide for my family and whether I have other healthy, stable children. Sir, there are far more “causal” alternatives to intentional explanations, and I was faced with a decision to hold people responsible for their behavior. It’s important to me that society stops ignoring the crimes of social services which has directly affected my entire family and me, to the brink of self-destruction. I never assumed I would be “let off the hook” and have no problem with the actual “punishment” of jail but then on top of that I can never see my son, ever, BECAUSE I LOVED HIM AND PROTECTED HIM TOO MUCH. WHY CAN’T ANYONE SEE THAT????? I don’t need a neuroscientific explanation to defend myself either.
“A better question is “how strong was the relation between the cause (whatever it happened to be) and the effect?” If, hypothetically, only 1 percent of people with a brain malfunction commit a seemingly irrational and extraordinary act, ordinary considerations about blame would still seem relevant. But if 99 percent of them do, you might start to wonder how responsible they really are.”
Five of my six children are now adults. ONLY my youngest was stolen.(According to Mahoney, Donnelly was very “adorable” and “adoptable” and she would have said the same about all the others too if she had been around.) He was stolen by Susan Loew, Bridgette Miller, Kristine Vernier, Antoine Coley, Amanda Spratley, Rushton, McPhee, Mahoney,Vinson and Jamila Purnell by tricking you and creating an imaginary violent person. The ONLY issue was alleged drug use however, I provided the evidence that the hair follicle test was fake yet, NO ONE stood
up for me, NO ONE said, “Look, your Honor, Mr. Burns has evidence that those drug tests were wrong, just take a look.” My evidence was ignored and they tricked you into believing that I was guilty. WHY??? You know why.
Hopefully you are no longer conducting yourself in a manner that appears to be more of a prosecutor rather than a Judge. It sure did seem like that last year and as it appears in the transcripts now. Hopefully, for the sake of other children and parents, you have more experience and time to READ so it doesn’t appear that you are favorable to Purnell. I hope you realise now that people are paying attention to your court. I apologise if it is causing you concern or irritating you but I am sure you agree that it must be done if the system is going to have checks and balances. I hope you have had more TIME TO READ THE SOCIAL WORKER’S REPORTS SO YOU WON’T BE DUPED INTO believing their lies. These people wouldn’t even write an honest report about their own mother but I bet they would if you made them. Please, take the TIME TO READ and don’t take what county counsel says as absolute truth, it is not helping children whatsoever. These people do not give a shit about anyone. Driven by greedy Department Directors, motivated by threats from their immediate Supervisors, social workers have plunged into the bottomless pit of denial which has created an entire new breed of humans or maybe just a rejuvenation of a species we thought was dying out. Throughout history, groups of people have targeted children (such as Pharaoh), exploited children for sex and profit (such as Cambodia, Thailand, Brazil and Costa Rica) and the infamous Chinese who duped parents into letting the government take their children during the war to “protect” them from the Japanese invasion. This was not a real invasion threat, it was a way to wash dirty money. The children were put into secret group “foster” homes where they were literally starved and beaten to death. Yeah, that species is no joke and If our country’s social workers are not in denial then they are just downright evil. People are waking up. I have shown about 10,000 people that there appears to be bias in Juvenile Court, especially S103. The people who ask me what kind of person you are I tell them, “Be patient with him, he is still learning how to READ [the reports].” However, it has been over a year now so I expect you are learning their ways. I know you are not stupid or ignorant. Respectfully, Sir, please pay attention to the publicity when the media reports crimes that occur in social services. So many social workers have been caught falsifying documents, ignoring apparent abuse and NOT removing children who are truly being abused just so they get hurt and the Department can swing the story to their advantage and ultimately, more funding. I am putting together as much information as I can find about abuses in foster care, funding scams, children molested and killed by adoptive parents, the doping up 3-year-olds, selling children to other countries for work as sex slaves, you name it, Social Services is GUILTY OF IT.
One would think that since the budget was practically cut in half that there would be LESS REMOVALS, LESS JUVENILE DEPENDENCY CASES but what has happened? Don’t you have MORE CASES?
So, if I were to write to John M. Monterosso, that is what I would say. I’m not sure if it would be so nice and respectful though. That would depend on whether or not I thought that he had TIME TO READ IT.

(The original words written by my husband might have gotten him in hot water. He doesn’t care about that but I do. I should warn you that he may not even ask me to read his posts before publishing them since I chopped this one all up and thwarted his intention to disrespect the judge which I would NEVER DO! hehehe)
