Child Protective Services- Topic 1: Referrals

Referral has two meanings in Child Protective Services

Referral=When someone calls a CPS hotline and says that they believe a child is being abused.

Referral= An approval and authorization to provide payment to a “service” that is “required” and demanded upon you in order to get your child(ren) back from CPS such as counseling, drug testing and parenting classes.

For this post I will be “referring” to the first REFERRAL I described above.

Who called CPS on you? Was it a family member or close friend?

This is the shittiest type of referral because these are the people who are supposed to be there for you, not feed you to the wolves. If a family member or close friend feels that they are “helping” you by calling CPS on you then they do not deserve to be considered family or close friend. With friends and family like that, you don’t need any enemies. If you are one of those family or friends that have called on someone, I think that if you are here, you are regretting it. It’s OK, at least you are here and most people have no clue as to what they are doing to a family when they make that call. But did you have the BEST intentions? NO you didn’t but still, you are here. The best thing you can do for them now is TAKE BACK WHAT YOU SAID AND DO IT IN COURT AND ON PAPER, SUBMIT IT TO THE JUDGE PERSONALLY. HELP YOUR FAMILY MEMBER OR CLOSE FRIEND AS MUCH AS YOU CAN AND NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!

ANYONE CAN CALL THE CPS HOTLINE and report anything they want regardless of whether they are telling the truth or NOT.  A disgruntled neighbor, friend, family member, an ex-spouse or partner, your child’s friend’s mother or father, a complete stranger who witnessed you yelling at your kid in the grocery store and managed to get the phone number you have on your car advertising your business, a jogger passing by your house and hears a loud bang and then the cry of a child (this really happened to a friend of my brother’s.  The loud bang was a broomstick falling to the floor and it startled a young child causing them to cry. The broom wasn’t even close to hitting the child.)  The person making the “referral” does not have to have proof nor do they ever have to testify! NEVER! Their names are kept secret (unless they call your social worker directly while you have an open case, then this information may be in the case/contact log). No background check for the person’s credibility will be performed and they can be convicted child abusers themselves!

What can you do to avoid the “referral” by someone you know? You certainly can lower the odds by just getting along with people. I wish I would have put more effort into not being a bitch to my husband’s ex-wife that is for sure! I thought I was so much better than her, I looked at her like she was a piece of shit (she was and still is) but I didn’t have to go out of my way to write her that letter telling her so. I had my reasons at the time but golly gee willicker, if I could go back in time, I would kiss that woman’s ass for sure! I had no idea of the evil she was capable of doing. So be kind to your neighbors, ex-spouse or girlfriend, be tolerant of certain personality defects, try your best to be firm but always nice. Don’t piss your mother off (they must rank #4 in the people who call!) and try to get along with your sister. This would not only improve your chances of not being falsely reported, it also strengthens your family bonds and that is positive for everyone.

 MANDATED REPORTERS AND OTHER PROFESSIONALS

A lot of calls are from “mandated reporters” who are professionals who can be charged with a crime for failing to report “suspected” child abuse either in criminal or civil court as well as pay a hefty fine and possibly lose their license.  I believe that there may be a minimum referral quota but I can not verify that.  

Here is a partial list of “Mandated Reporters”:

ANY PERSON WHO WORKS FOR GOVERNMENT INCLUDING CITY, COUNTY, STATE AND FEDERAL!

 

 REFERRAL PROCESS:

Each CPS office has its own referral evaluation process.  You should be able to find the one for your county by searching, “Child Welfare Policies in ____ County”.  How the agency in your area responds depends on several factors such as current case load, budget conditions and case to staff ratio. All too often calls will be “evaluated out” simply because they were understaffed and over budget already. Even more disgusting is when CPS KNOWS a child is in real danger and they don’t do a damn thing! They let that child get hurt or die just so they can spin it so that they can say they need more money! Shameful, despicable behavior!

The call center will receive the call, ask pertinent information about the child and the child’s family and/or residence but they will not verify the caller’s credibility whatsoever. Personally, the person who called on us was herself a child abuser and on the CACI index along with having a criminal record which included child endangerment. Not to mention a lengthy drug abuse history!

At your first hearing be sure to OBJECT to any policy violations that you can find. If they are supposed to get a warrant then OBJECT to the detention of your children on the grounds that they violated ____ Policy (state your source which is the Manual for your county). Do this especially if they did not have any valid reason to suspect that your child was at imminent risk. Such as simply school attendance ONE alleged positive drug test or for refusing to drug test. You can use this policy in your Objections, Declaration and Statements of Fact in Response to the Petition and Detention Reports.  Be sure to list all the policies and procedures that they did not adhere to regarding the referral, investigation and removal of your child(ren).

CPS abuses their power this is no secret. Supposedly, they get a rush from “saving” children so most often, to feed their egos and get their “saving” fix for the day, they will out and out falsify things you say and things your children say so NEVER speak to them without an attorney present. I know this is hard to do so at least say as little as you can! Always be polite because they will use your attitude against you. Say everything with a smile and thank them for their concern. But still, do your homework, READ YOUR COUNTY’S CHILD WELFARE POLICIES AND USE IT AGAINST THEM AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY.  IT WILL GO A LONG WAY TO MAKING YOUR CASE FOR THE APPEALS COURT.

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

Will “The Rock” Wake People Up?

I love Facebook, especially the News Feed. You get to see and learn so much, not to mention SHARE! Some people like to post recipes, some like to post family pictures, some like to post funny sayings, some like to post inspirational clips, some share completely FAKE posts because they are fakers pretending to be someone they are not, but that is NOT the case with Dwayne The Rock Johnson. He has a new show on TNT called “Wake Up Call” where he helps, inspires, informs and I am sure, makes some money (that he honorably deserves for what he is doing). 

As I was reviewing my Friend Requests and visiting their page to see who they were and if they were REAL, I stumbled upon this post:

NoLiftNoGift

So then I clicked on the link to: Dwayne The Rock Johnson which brought me to his Wake Up Call page. As I scrolled down reading, I learned about his show. I found a post that I ended up commenting on. Here is that post and my comment. Enough said.

I Keep Posting These Stories, Are You Reading?

Another child dies in foster care, it happens everyday. Yes, some children die at the hands of their parents or step-parents and CPS claims they “save” children but they have shown, time after time, that they do not choose better  caregivers. You know why? BECAUSE THEY DON’T FREAKING CARE ABOUT CHILDREN!

All I Want For Christmas is You [Donnelly]

  I think that a Christian should not be so judgmental as to NOT even SPEAK to Donnelly’s parents because of the lies CPS social workers told them. Would Jesus completely

SmCb4Bblock out the parents of a child whom they obviously cherished from the bottom of their souls? I do not believe he would. Would Jesus file a restraining order against people who clearly miss their son more than anything in the whole world? I do not think so. Would Jesus hold such resentment and contempt for people he has never even tried to get to know? I do not believe so. Being a Christian is more than just going to church. Being a Christian is more than going to bible study. Christ would not judge so harshly. Christ would not purposely and carelessly allow two parents to bear the pain and loss of their child if that child was still alive. Jesus would heal that pain, not make it worse. Are you really CHRISTIANS?

All I want for Christmas is to see and hold my son so he knows that we did not abandon him, that we love him and that he will always be in our hearts and minds as he is every single millisecond or ever single second, of every minute, of every hour, of every day, of every week in every month of every year. We love and miss you so much Donnelly. All I want for Christmas is YOU! 1501661254807

Your Tax Dollars Paying To Protect DPSS Workers

$700,000 per year. This is what Riverside County has been granted for UN-ARMED guards to “protect” the people who CARE SO MUCH ABOUT CHILDREN! WHY ON EARTH WOULD THEY NEED PROTECTION? THESE OFFICES DO NOT HAVE ANY CASH OR VALUABLES ON HAND, WHY WOULD PEOPLE THREATEN TO HARM AND CAUSE “ALTERCATIONS” IF CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICE WORKERS ARE NICE, CARING HUMAN BEINGS WHO JUST HELP PEOPLE IN NEED? Maybe CPS social workers, supervisors and the Director, are not really very nice or care one bit about the children!

I Read The California Welfare & Institutions Code For Fun

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

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

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

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

 

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

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]

OK?

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

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

Here are the responses from the caseworker as promised.

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

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

                                                                                                                     

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

                                                                                                                    

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

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

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

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

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

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

                                                                                                                       

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

                                                                                                                       

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

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

                                                                                                                    

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

                                                                                                                    

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

ANSWER: Yes

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

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

                                                                                                                     

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

                                                                                                                     

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

                                                                                                                      

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

17. Did you ever have civil rights training?

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

18. What were the motivations of the job?

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

19. What kind of mandatory training did you have?

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

20. What can parents do to keep caseworkers honest?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Your WHOLE FAMILY Misses You Donnelly!!

Dear Donnelly,

You are now 6 years old and probably not allowed on the computer by yourself but in a few years you will be and I hope to God that you Google your name and find this blog that your real parents have dedicated to you to help other families being torn apart like ours was. We want you to know that CPS took you away from many people who love you very very much. We are all still so very heartbroken sometimes it’s hard for me to just go about life without you. I miss your kisses and hugs and I miss reading to you and playing with your Cars cars. For a while right after I bought you the movie I began purchasing toy Cars every time I went to the store. We wanted to be the parents who took you to Disneyland, we wanted to be the parents who took you to school on your first day. If you were still with us I would not be working, I would be a dedicated stay-at-home mommy who would pick you up from school too. No daycare, no afterschool programs for you to have to wait at all afternoon. I would have done your homework with you everyday just like I did for your sisters, Kayla and Alex. We would be going to the park at least two times a week and you would have helped me find new things to add to your Spongebob collection. We would be making cookies and cupcakes together, we would be cleaning up your room together, you would go shopping with me and on the way home we would stop and get ice cream cones. I would let you play hookie from school once or twice so we can have a fun day together, just me and you. We would all go to Magic Mountain and in the winter time we would go to SnowHill in Big Bear. I would be teaching you math with flash cards, I would be explaining to you why the sky is blue. Daddy would teach you the planets and the solar system. Either me or Daddy would help you with your school projects and we would volunteer to go with your class on field trips. These are all the things we did with your brothers and sisters for years and years. It’s really ridiculous that CPS took you away from us, well, more than riduculous but for this post I will try to keep my words focused on trying to let you know that your real family is a good family no matter what CPS or the Ra__os__i people have told you. Please keep looking on this site for my videos of our story so you know what we were really like. I want to share some more pictures with you. Two days ago was your Sissy Kayla’s birthday. She turned 19 years old. She was there when you were born and helped Mommy a lot when you were little. You both loved each other very much.

……

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DONNELLY! FROM YOUR REAL MOMMY AND DADDY

UPDATE FOR PARENTS FIGHTING CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES aka CPS

     The things I am going to tell you in this report will empower you and give you a fighting chance to beat these bastards.  I will get harassed for this by DPSS but I couldn’t think of a more proud reason to get harassed or anything else they want to do to me. This will be taking money away from these child trafficking criminals. I have already lost my child because I did not have the knowledge of how fake and one sided these courts truly are. I believed in the American life as sacred and that you have to be proven guilty before found guilty.  Please learn from my failure and the things we have learned since.

     The people that win these courts cases are not any different than you or I, they just have more knowledge and are not so easily  manipulated by government paid lyres who have no soul or God. I have been reading everything I can since my child was kidnapped by DPSS -CPS, trying to understand why this is happening.

     Well the facts are in and this is what I have found in every state in this country and there is a long road ahead to kill this beast. The first thing we have to do is stop being easy targets for DPSS a.k.a. CPS and they will move on to easier targets or hopefully no more funding.

      They have already found an easier target with APS (Adult Protective Services) that targets families taking care of elderly parents in their home by saying many of these parents are abused. Stealing all their belongings and ownership of their property.  Trust me government has always, through out history, done their job for money and always been more abusive than the people in every single country on earth.  That is another battle for later on, right now let’s get them one at a time.

     Let me get into what is so close to my heart and become the reason for most of my drive these days, to form a collective of knowledge, to do my part in saving children and families from this absolute devastation of everyone involved in these courts.

     Our site has done well this year to get the word out but we have not made even a slight dent in the problem of CPS Child Protective Services, DPSS Department of Public Social Services making huge profits by the theft and sale of our children out to adoption receiving Federal Funding such as Social Security Title IV-E,  CAPTA, ASFA, and other private  contributions which are granted to help families in crisis. But these funds are not used for the intended purpose to save and keep families together, instead the money is used for other broke government county and state departments making the State’s  and the counties ability of ignoring this problem easy. If the US citizens knew the money paid by their taxes is truly being used to KIDNAP CHILDREN for profit the people would be so outraged. But first:

STEP 1. WE HAVE TO GET THE WORD OUT TO THE PUBLIC and people have to wake up and look at the absolute facts of this problem and how large it has become.   I, as well as many many other people, have found out that this is the fact in every state in the United States.

Step 2.  PROTECT YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS.  Tell people they do not have to let CPS in their home. They have absolutely no authority over you or your children until YOU GIVE IT TO THEM. If CPS has any real evidence that you are a child abuser they would not be knocking on your door asking to come in. Instead a bunch of cops would bust down your door or at least show up with a warrant. Do not misinterpret a police officer’s presence with the social worker they are only there to intimidate you and to protect the worker against you.  The reason CPS wants to interview you is to find a reason, create a reason, exaggerate and twist the truth to use as evidence to steal your child. REMEMBER REFUSE ENTRY WITHOUT A WARRANT< YOUR CHILD IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR, STAND YOUR GROUND> CPS should be considered a predator because YOUR CHILD WILL BE HARMED AS WELL AS THE FAMILY when they take your child.

     No children or family members come out of CPS unharmed and you have to think about this, YOUR CHILD MAY NEVER COME HOME AGAIN. MANY CHILDREN DIE IN FOSTER/CPS CARE. In 2009- 2011 the average number of children who where removed from their parents and adopted (either by family or strangers) was 2,712,000. So just for the last three years, 8,136,000 children were not returned to their parents. CPS will not return your children for months or years if they so desire. Approximately, only 45% are “reunified” with their parents and are adopted by family or strangers and CPS gets large bonuses from the federal and state for adopting out your child. This is human trafficking.

     You may not think this problem is real but even if only 2 people tell you that there is a predator lurking around your neighborhood would you take the chance and leave your child and family vulnerable? Consider HISTORY which shows that government will, over time, get out of control because of MONEY and POWER. The States are kidnapping children just the same as any other predator.   CPS was collecting about 120,000.00 per child per year> Do you really think they would turn down that kind of money and do not forget all the money that also comes from the adoption market.

Step 3. DO NOT SIGN ANY CONTRACT WITH CPS, this contract is called many things, a case plan, family maintenance agreement or any other tricky pseudonyms. This contract gives DPSS complete control and custody over your children until they are adults even if you are released from their services.  So stand your ground. DO NOT LET THEM BULLY YOU, DO NOT PANIC. Stand your ground, once you sign that contract you are now in civil JV court it is not family court do not be fooled these court appointed CPS attorney’s will not tell you this they want you to be blind sided and these attorneys should be disbarred for not telling you what your rights are and that they are going to waive advisement from the Judge. The Judge is guilty for failing to ensure your rights, as well for laundering this corrupt money. He says by signing the contract, you are not admitting to guilt and this is a perversion of the truth because you are giving up your child to government custody and control and this says you are guilty by going along.  Remember do not sign anything you can still take services and not sign anything the funds are still there to help even if you do not sign.

Step 4. SPEAK UP IN COURT  AND MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD ON THE RECORD. I am telling you this from experience. If you do not speak up in court your lawyer will not do it for you, his job with this court depends on it.  There is no way you will get your side on record if you do not speak up. They will ignore anything you turn into the court clerk.   They will tell you all kinds of manipulative reasons why you should stay quiet, I am telling you this is the one time in your life to get a back bone and stand up for your children if you want them in your life.  This civil fake family court is bent on earning money off of taking your child and has so much experience doing so, if you follow the norm you will be their money ride. If you stand up for what is right they will not be as experienced at pushing you through as just another number.  This entire court is built around making money for the county and state.  I could go into all the evidence I have but it would take months. We have about 1800 pages of evidence which my wife has been sorting through for months to prove everything I am saying here and about 28 years of watching these criminals get away with this terrorism on the American people.

 In closing most of you know, I am not a lawyer or any kind of legal representative, I am just a parent going through what is the single most life changing event that I did not believe could ever happen to a parent who has always loved  and treated his children with care and acceptance, to make sure they always know they have a father who believes in them and they  always have a place to go that truly has their best interest at heart as long as I am alive. I do this job with pride and their is nothing government could ever say or do to take that from me. Unlike government  I don’t have to get paid to do this job, so who really has his child’s best interest at heart.   I have other children who no longer believe in our government and know the CPS investigation was fake  and  without reason or  evidence or they would not have taken their brother my littlest child. Donnelly I love you so much and I will never stop fighting for you.

SO, how do we stop this from happening?  We all have to do our part. Thomas Jefferson said it best, what would happen if good people do nothing. What we have to do is POST, POST,POST this on every single web blog or any other place you can until people know, I mean truly know what is happening to our children. Even if you do not have any children, this is not good for any ones child. 

God Bless, and please do the right thing.  Educate everyone.

You have my permission to post or copy this Blog any place that you have the right to do so as long as it is posted in it’s entirety and not edited.

Judge Judy used to be a Juvenile Dependency Court Judge!

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

A Message to a Juvenile Court Judge, Respectfully

The Judge PoliceLetter to Judge from William Burns:

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.

reading3

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 cdt2even 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 

reading11have 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 read3enough 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.reading2

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 images (5)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 I like this picturewhether 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 article-new_ds-photo_getty_article_88_153_78480975_XSmore 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 MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERATIME 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 You_Can_Read_Button_200x200has 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.LorenzDogNews2

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.  .

PROOF THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO SIGN THE CASE PLAN

In California: According to CPS’s Manual of Policies and Procedures you do not have to sign the case plan in order to receive services. All it does is contractually bind you to it,

No Signature Required for Case Plan

 CPS/JUVENILE DEPENDENCY COURT IS CIVIL. NOT CRIMINAL AND NOT FAMILY LAW. The rules of evidence are the same as in Civil Court and disobeying an “order” is merely a contempt of court issue.

I got this clip from CA Policy Revision Update which clearly states the Department’s PRIORITIES AND VALUES. IS it just me or is it obvious that the welfare of children is not their main concern?

(if this image is not clear, click on it and it will pop up in a new window and it will be readable)

CPS's 'STATED VALUES

SAFETY:

OF WHO? THE SOCIAL WORKERS!

TIMELY PERMANENCY:

SO THEY CAN GET THE ADOPTION INCENTIVE MONEY SOONER

REDUCING RELIANCE ON OUT-OF-HOME-CARE:

AGAIN, THIS IS PART OF ‘PERMANENCY’ AS THEY GET MORE FUNDING FROM ADOPTIONS THAN FOR FOSTER CARE

REDUCING THE RISK OF ABUSE AND NEGLECT IN OUT-OF-HOME CARE:

WHY IS THIS EVEN AN ISSUE IF THE FOSTER HOMES ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE PARENT’S HOME THAT THEY EVEN PLACE THEM THERE TO BEGIN WITH? “OK. LET’S TAKE THIS KID FROM THESE PARENTS BECAUSE FOSTER CARE IS SO PERFECT AND THE FOSTER PARENTS ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAT WE NEVER EVEN HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT CHILDREN GETTING HURT THERE”

OBVIOUSLY THERE IS AT LEAST ENOUGH ABUSE IN FOSTER CARE TO MAKE THIS  PRIORITY RIGHT????

CHILD  WELL-BEING:

THIS IS LISTED LAST, ALMOST LIKE SOMEONE ALMOST FORGOT TO WRITE IT! DOES THIS NOT SHOW THAT THEY REALLY DON’T CARE ABOUT KIDS? I FIND SO MANY THINGS LIKE THIS. I AM PUTTING TOGETHER A COLLECTION OF THEM.

Abuse in out of home care

Coming Soon to a Blog near you: CPS “PRIORS” THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE UGLY. Lawsuits against CPS, social workers gone worse, foster parents who are criminally charged for abuse and murder, CPS’s failures and Judges gone wild.

CPS JUDGE WANTS TO TAKE AWAY RIGHT TO WRITE, IT IS ALL I HAVE LEFT

CREDIT WAS GIVEN TO SOMEONE ELSE FOR THE CONTENTS OF DONNELLYJUSTICE. STILL THEY WERE ASKED TO STOP EXPRESSING THEIR (OUR) RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH ABOUT WHAT THAT COURT IS DOING TO THEIR FAMILY.

AS FOR ME AND MY WIFE, THAT SAME COURT AND JUDGE STOLE OUR SON AND ADOPTED HIM OUT.  THIS IS THE ONLY PERSONAL PROTECTION WE HAVE AGAINST THE CORRUPTION AND THE KIDNAPPING BY CPS, JUDGES AND ATTORNEYS. I WILL SEE THIS JUDGE OFF THE BENCH.

Maybe after he retires but I will still see him off the bench. My wife is just wonderful at finding case-law that sets a precedent. Her dedication to fighting for her son is different from mine and that is what makes me so proud of her. We have had so many people telling us thank you for giving them the information so desperately needed helping to beat their CPS cases in every state except California. There is a complete disregard for law in this state and  especially in this county (Riverside)   What these court cohorts just don’t seem to get in their heads is, I cannot be intimidated- ever.  I can even face the threat of losing my life, this is too important and you corrupt people in bed with CPS have stolen my son.  So now you go ahead and do whatever you have to do because in the end, I am still proud of who I am and who my wife is as well.  We are making a stand for FAMILIES IN THE NAME OF OUR SON DONNELLY THE ONE YOU GAVE UP FOR ADOPTION because we stood up to your bias, unfair and CORRUPT system. You are doing it to honest and decent parents, why?  I did not take children and sell them for government funding ever. But what I have done and will keep doing is continue to get your funding removed by being completely honest about your court practices to the OIG and other agencies, until my son comes home.

Everyday I am on this planet is a blessing from God and I do feel truly blessed to have such wonderful children (6 of them, but CPS only stole 1 of them. I was capable of raising 5 others to adulthood without ANY major injuries or hospitalizations, my children are capable, working adults, productive members of society. Isn’t that the GOAL of raising children? How the hell can I have raised them to be who and what they are now if I was abusive or put them “at risk”?) The lord has given and he has taketh away. I should have so much to be happy for. I expect nothing and I cherish everyday he allows me to continue to fight for children and parents.  Threatening me will do no good. The mistake that was already made was not killing me after kidnapping my child.

Suggesting that it is expected that site be taken down, you should make sure that you have the RIGHT person this time. Now ask me again to take my site down.  Do you really think I will?  The last time I was told to take a blog down I created 4 more sites. The data my wife is collecting about CPS, DCFS, (and every other acronym out there), social workers’, attorneys’ and judges’  history of crimes, failures and lawsuits is growing and has already grown so large we may need volunteers to help us. The motivation of parents that have had their children kidnapped by CPS is either completely give up and become a lump of emotional coal or it motivates them to become absolutely obsessed with exposing, indicting, describing, yelling, screaming, informing, litigating every single thing that was wrongfully done to them. My wife and I, obviously, are not lumps of coal.

The sacrifice parents make raising a child and the personal investment could never have a dollar amount value placed on it.. This is an investment of the heart and life over time and any parent who enjoys being a parent as we do, so very much so, can’t ever let that go. Anyone who knows my wife and I,  know without any doubt how much we care about and love our son Donnelly as well as our other children, Our children give us meaning and purpose. Our friends see how much we hurt and know we will never give up. They see our obsession, its all we talk about, my wife is always aware that we may be annoying and tries to be considerate by talking about other things once in a while but the conversation always ends up back on the subject. Many people express that if CPS tried to take away their kid that it would be over their dead body. We felt that way too however, when you are put in a position where they have lied to the police so they take your child at GUNPOINT,  your “dead body” becomes literal. People have no idea how truly corrupt these judges are and the dollar is all they care about. These Judges honestly do not care about the children in their community or anything that happens to them. In our case, CPS and the court cohorts went way out of their way to terminate our rights and prevent our family from getting custody, or even ever being able to see or speak to him, then DID NOT TAKE THE MOST SIMPLE PRECAUTIONS TO ENSURE THAT THE ADOPTIVE PARENT’S INFORMATION BE KEPT CONFIDENTIAL. So, once they were assured the AFSA, CAPTA and other funds, they cared no more. These Judges know children get abused, killed or neglected all the time in CPS care and even by the adoptive parents. A babysitter will never care for a child the same as biological parents. Don’t misunderstand me, there are parents who are neglectful or abusive but there are far less of them than they try to fool the public into believing but everyone I know agrees they would not want CPS in their home ever, our children are more important than anything. Just this statement alone says so much about our lives. The devastation CPS leaves in their wake is truly more than a parent should endure. Without our friends and family we don’t think we could have made it. The cruelty in which CPS when they relentlessly fabricate stories about many parents is overwhelming. When you experience it for yourself you find that this has been going on for decades yet still swept under the rug.

CPS generates money and is shared with other county departments via the general fund so they are supported by the police, the Board of Supervisors and other county officials. CPS uses the same tactics with every family as I have learned by interviewing people on the courthouse steps but since the police depend on the money from the general fund, they will not do anything about the criminal behavior of social workers. The amount of money the Judge gets for each child varies in each county with Riverside being the most secretive which is why the audit is taking a while. Anyone who has any evidence of the falsification of evidence and perjury must contact the Office of the Inspector General, who oversees social security funding (Title IV-E), and hold them accountable for auditing Riverside County or any county in the US. All you need to do is compare the transcript to the minute orders, attach your evidence of their forgery and perjury, and send it to them. The link was right there. COUNTIES WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY BACK THE IV FUNDS. I am sure that this will be greatly appreciated by the Directors since the quality of children’s lives are PARAMOUNT right? I couldn’t have felt good sleeping at night without helping the Riverside DPSS/CPS Director, Susan Loew, who began working for CPS in 1999 in the FINANCES & SERVICES department, by ensuring that every dime be accounted for and used for the needs of children. That is the objective right Ms. Loew? I feel bad for not helping sooner with, you know, First 5 auditing, I know how much heat you have taken about that mismanagement and being reprimanded by the Grand Jury and all.

This country can’t survive much more of this corrupt government.  I will continue to do everything I can no matter what . If anything happens to me to change what I do, it isn’t me. God Bless everyone and keep up the pressure. William R. Burns for http://www.donnellyjustice.me

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Dear Juvenile Dependency Judge:

Surveillance Recording of Child Being Kidnapped!

Riverside corruption

http://soundcloud.com/cpscorruptionriverside/audio-recording-on-wednesday-2/

Click on the link above and then click on the Exhibits to hear a father trying to plea with the social worker to be reasonable and then hear the child cry because she is being taken away from her Daddy.

Got another restraining order against me for writing and speaking the truth about CPS.

I guess this means I haven’t stopped.  Taking my son away just so you could put money in your pockets,  is the reason I will never stop exposing CPS.  We are continually looking for tips, links, or eye witness reports of the UN-American activities by CPS, County Counsel, or any of the lawyers that pretend to care about children in court and not do a thing.   My attorney did not ask any questions that would increase the credibility as to how we raise our son.  Instead he asked questions that played into the stereotype profiling.  These attorneys don’t fight for us in CPS court they feed us to the wolves, I felt in the CPS courtroom the entire case was choreographed.   Letting the adoptive parents sit in the court just topped it off when my rights were not even terminated this is the strongest indication that everything was planned.

have had some great people willing to study the law about these CPS cases and this has helped them so much. The books are there so is anyone needs legal guides, law books,  we have numerous links and places to get books on the law for free.  I want all parents to have the chance that was stolen from my wife and I by some very heartless people who care about no no one only money.  Now that I have experience first hand, I have truly experienced the worst in man kind.  I never thought the entire court system of CPS would sell children or get involved where they should not be. To tell you the truth CPS should never end taking any child unless a child has gotten hurt from neglect.  Based on all the overwhelming evidence against CPS and the JV court system it is only a matter of time for these people to be looking for a job.  SELLING CHILDREN FOR FEDERAL MONEY ,  A child that gets hurt or killed doesn’t matter to CPS or these judges,  I will never stop exposing this court system.

I will never shut up, I will continue to fight until my death because it is not right on every level that a man would pass a law to take away a child and allow a company to profit from it. The people who pretend that it wouldn’t become corrupt are freaking kidding them selves. The lawyers that work for CPS could never find another job because they know what they have done  by pretending that there is any validity to CPS at all anymore and I am not sure there ever was and I have been around these people for a very long time. They came into my house and only picked the children from my second wife and I but left the children from my first wife who’s mother was very well established with that very CPS office and no one see”s the connection. HOW OBVIOUSLY CORRUPT CAN YOU BE TO UPHOLD THIS CRIME AGAINST PARENTS AND STEAL THEIR CHILD is everyone in the court system completely corrupt?  Don’t you people ever wonder what would happen if this happened to you.

What I find outrageous these days, that people still have such a lack of morality that they will pretend they haven’t heard of CPS stealing children from good homes.  The show I had to sit through today was so insulting and everyone knew it. At this day in age that a person would have to sit through a court proceeding and listen to people rob you blind. They should just use a gun and kill me, it would be easier. My son was stolen and from a good home and everyone thinks I am just going to watch it happen without making the whole world aware of it, not this father, A Lawyer who did his research would know only a person who truly cares about his child would continue to fight at all cost not someone who is just trying to justify things.

How can anyone think I would go to all this effort of finding case law and research of CPS crimes to make this stuff up? That is the crazy argument I had to listen to today.  This is to cruel to be made up.  If for a second you think CPS isn’t like this, don’t be lazy, look  it up. Look up the thousands of parents still fighting for their children even though low life attorney’s who know better still continue to tell people, I don’t have any evidence that CPS steals children, I can’t face up to what I did, or can’t deal with my responsibility for the things I may have done. How much more evidence will be enough to WAKE PEOPLE up OR tell the American people to get off their ass and face up to the fact that their children are being stolen and sold by the single biggest trafficker of children in history.

People have been told countless times and still everyone keeps saying it won’t ever happen to me. Then why are 800,000 that is eight hundred thousand children a year in the united states are stolen out of their homes and the news doesn’t report it. Now go ahead ask me how I know this the Government keeps totals and in order to get funding it must increase by 5 percent a year to set the budget for next year. I know this stuff because it happened to me and every time I see another child get taken from a good home. I ask myself what is it going to take to get people to wake up and fight back, I am only one person. I am not asleep, I pay attention. I know the TV is more interesting and I will not get a second thought until another child is stolen, a child you would protect at any cost right, and yet you don’t even have a chance to fight for your child because you don’t know who the threat is yet.and these people will ruin anyone.

My answer to the attorney’s who say I don’t own up to my responsibility.  My answer for you, not only do I deal with my responsibility but I deal with your irresponsibility to your client and industry that you so graciously take money from even when you know a child is suffering the consequence.  One thing I was taught as a child and I would have taught my child if given the chance, never give up the things you know are right even if told to do so.  This is how people become nothing under NAZI boot heals,  I would rather die for my principles than cater to corruption. You will say something typical again but I will not go away their is something far more important here than me shutting my mouth.  PARENTS ARE LOSING THEIR CHILDREN and until attorney’s stand up and say no I will not help you steal another child this country is going to end up COMPLETELY ROTTEN and you judges out there who approve this corrupt way of life. Don’t you want to live in a place of decency and made up of good people? Why are you letting this happen when you know it is wrong.  Just because I am not at the top of my class or a judge doesn’t mean I am not well grounded in life. I know who I am and I know what is right so you go ahead do what you will to me, but I have to face my maker alone,  I know what she will say to me,  so do what you have to do, I am the man I want to be.

If you second guess anything I am saying you will lose. Ask your self what I will lose or gain by telling you this?  The answer nothing,  they have already taken it and I would be lying if I said I don’t get a satisfaction out of helping parents and children to stay or get away from CPS.  When attorneys have beaten CPS they have lost their children, that is why a good attorney will go up against CPS if he has children or close friends who do. If you think I am lying look it up  the information is out there, people don’t make up things like that, it is to horrible to be made up. CPS WILL TAKE WHAT THEY WANT IF YOUR CHILD BECOMES THE TARGET.

We were up against another show for CPS again to day and they will not stop trying to shut me up.  They can’t because I tell the truth. CPS has been indicted so many times by the grand jury, investigated by the FBI and still people will say I don’t have any evidence to say the things I am saying. If this is you welcome to earth because you just got here. On this planet CPS steals children. WAKE UP PEOPLE.

It is now legal for CPS to steal your children and sell them for Federal money because there are plenty of unscrupulous people who find out and are just fine with knowing the truth and will even file a restraining order against the parents to help cover it up. as a matter of fact I know of a couple who adopted a child, I wont mention any names but these people found out the truth and instead of contact the parents and saying sorry you were wronged, and it is obvious you were wronged because you keep staying in there and fighting any parent who keeps fighting against those odds the just might deserve a little courtesy.

The parent I am talking about wrote a letter to the adoptive parents asking just to be able to visit or to make sure the child knew his parent didn’t give up on him, because the child deserves to know his parent didn’t just let him go, he was taken. Amazing as it is, these people stated that the birth parents couldn’t except what they did and just deal with it. WOULD THEY JUST WALK AWAY FROM A HUMAN BEING WHO DESERVES TO KNOW THE TRUTH?  I bet they would just walk away.  You know, I bet it wouldn’t be to hard to except if the parents didn’t have absolute proof that the CPS worker submitted a criminal record of another man in the same city with the same name but different middle name,and 10 years older that would be their first clue that the parents weren’t lying.

You see there is a moral struggle here inside of this person.  I bet he would like to just walk away and not run a back ground check on everyone in his sons life but bet he won’t.  You see I know him almost like it was myself speaking.  I will bet he will end up winning his law suit against CPS because it is right and like his mom always said, “what is right is right and nothing can change that not ever”.

The part about this story I think is disgusting, the attorney sat in that court room and this attorney is very well informed on CPS and he knows just how bad they really are and yet he still lied to his clients.  He way over charged them for a proceeding that they could have just represented themselves. Like I said these people that had their son stolen they are not stupid and won’t do anything to cause their son or the parents any harm.

One thing that I have to make abundantly clear and I hope everyone understands this:

If you ever adopt a child CPS will treat you just like the person they took the child from in the first place if you ever call them for help, they will not take it as if you need help, they will take it as a sign that you are their next target for funding.   I am not just talking hot air, I know these people and know what they do.  If you think just because they helped you adopt a child once they will always be their for you they won’t.  The one thing you need to know is CPS is never to be trusted EVER.  These people will not only destroy you but they will destroy your reputation,  your business and your life all to make a few hundred thousand in federal funds.

I have stated it so many times to people and until CPS is shut down I will not shut up.  I owe it to my son and every single child stolen to be loud about it so this “legal” kidnapping STOPS.  People don’t trust government at all but they will pretend to trust CPS when they put a child in their home.  Is this self deception

I wish I could warn the entire country about CPS but even if I did there are still people who will say that could never be me. You know it doesn’t have to be you CPS will just use some other person’s criminal record. Do you think if everyone in this country just woke up and said, “Know what? I will treat my child perfect forever.” Do you think CPS would go out of business? NO they wouldn’t. But they would grab very adoptable children by claiming the parents were drug addicts. Let me ask you, do you or have you ever taken prescription pain killers? How about Xanax? And did you drive? Drive with a child in the car? How about just simply being at home taking care of the kids? Well, if you got in an accident and they drug tested you it would be positive for opiates or benzodiazapines.and you could be charged with driving under the influence and your child taken away or if someone made a false report to the hotline and came to the house and asked you to take a mouth swab drug test, they would take your kids and you would have to do all of their programs. Do you drink? Does your spouse drink? Have you consumed alcohol while your children were around? What if you were entertaining and your child was playing or skateboarding and fell and had to go to the hospital? Then when you get there and speak to the doctor he smells alcohol on your breath and calls CPS. They would take your kid and make you go through their substance abuse classes, parenting classes, counseling, anger management and whatever else they throw at you.  And you STILL MIGHT NOT GET YOUR KID BACK if they are good kids and “very adorable and adoptable”. This is real and it happens to thousands and thousands of people.

I tell you what I don’t have to say anymore.  I will give you a link to a site CPS social workers talk to each other some times they don’t disguise what is said and you be the judge of what they say.  It will change you out look on raising children.  The site is called http://www.socialjerk.com   People please just listen and except this fact. Don’t call CPS and ever expect a good outcome, these people are hired because of their ability to disconnect and not use their better judgement, A type personality, aggressive, argumentative , antisocial, sociopaths and most don’t have children, people with children do not last at CPS because they become conscious of what they do to other parents.  I don’t like if truly in this since to be right.  I give the information out tell you where to look and still people say, I am lying.. If someone is giving information before you call them a liar, check out what they are saying, It might save you from losing your son.  I am telling everyone not one person, so not trust these people because you can’t even trust them to keep information private.

We will never just walk away from our son, this is our decision, we did nothing wrong.

I truly wish Riverside County would get a judge of moral fiber with family values, if this doesn’t happen soon than any parent who goes before a CPS is getting a sentence far worse than death.  I have such a hard time believing the world is this evil. Separating  family is such a cruel thing to do that I can not follow any decision by these corrupt unmoral criminals who would sell another persons children.  This punishment no person deserves and I will do what ever the lord has planed for me. Bless these people for they know not what they do. We love you Donnelly.

Donnelly is our baby boy and any parent who feels the way we do about our  children is a wonderful parent.  No judge could ever take that from us.  We are gentle, loving parents and we will face the terrorism  of Child Protective Services to our deaths.  There is no reason on Gods green earth why we can not see our son.  The lies of these social workers who have stolen our child will come out.  Any person who does the things that have been done to us to steal our child is not a person of decency or moral fiber and should be in prison.  I have no reason to hide my head in shame because I know who I am, and I wouldn’t want to be anyone else.   I like who I am, I know CPS social worker Antione Coley doesn’t like who he is, this man has lied to everyone to take my son.

My children are my life and no man shall take that away,  God bless the parents who keep on going even after CPS has stolen their child.. We will see you again Donnelly love Dad.

Perverted Family Law Judge Gets Lienient Suspension

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

Social Workers Socializing

A woman I know with a current open CPS case recently sent a complaint letter to her social imagesworker’s supervisor. She also sent copies to: the Director of DPSS, Deputy Director, her attorney, the state DPSS, the FFA, her child’s counselor, the Attorney General and the FBI. She didn’t send one to the worker. The first call she got was from the Deputy Director. The second was from the worker who left a voicemail TELLING HER THAT SHE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO GO SEE ______ (A DOCTOR) AND GET ON MEDICATION AS IT WAS REQUIRED!  My friend has had two psychological evaluations and has been seeing two separate counselors for many months now. None of these professionals feel my friend has any mental illness or condition let alone need medication. The social worker who told my friend that she “had no choice” to go get on medication is Sonia Correa. I put her name out there because she is absolutely wretched! Not just due to this incident but because she is a sociopath liar and perpetrating malicious and intentional emotional distress upon my friend and her daughter. Maybe Sonia Correa is not even human, she speaks in monotone and forgets how to use a telephone for months on end.

This prompted me to look into the possibility that there are mentally hazardous conditions in the field of social work that turns people’s brains into a psychosis-malfunctioning blob. I found some socializing sites that all parents with CPS cases should check out,  just to know how these people think and get some insight into why social workers are such jerks and act like they hate you. I am not saying that we should sympathize with these people or have any respect for the ones that are sociopaths. Just remember, my strategy is that being able to think “like” the enemy will eventually beat your enemy. Please feel free to comment on our site rather than the social worker’s site if you have any anti-social worker comments. If you have any suggestions or know of other sites that give insight to the mind of a social worker, please email me at: cpshatersclub@gmail.com.

DESPARATELY NEED SHOW OF SUPPORT!

Whether you are a first time visitor or a regular follower, we are in need of your show of support. Please click LIKE or COMMENT so we can show how many people care and would object to taking donnellyjustice down. Please say if the information is helpful or valuable and whether or not you believe that CPS really does kidnap children even if they do save a few from abuse. I think they hurt more than they help. I want to create a new NON-Profit, volunteer based organization to help only those children who are being beaten, burned, tortured, molested, etc. NO “NEGLECT” children would ever be removed, instead I would help the family out with housing, food and rehab if the situation truly warranted it.
