You Are Guilty Until Proven Innocent - CPS Corruption



The anonymous caller makes the call to CPS (Child Protection Service) because they don't like you. Maybe they don't like your kids and they think they're brats. I'd like to think that most people wouldn't do something like that, but sadly I know I'm wrong. They call the department anonymously and throw a bunch of crap out there hoping something sticks. Perhaps the angry neighbor can get you out of there, or the angry ass hole of the community can get you out of the way. It could be they just don't like you and want to see you painfully taken down through there. The anonymous caller can make all the claims they want and you're guilty until proven innocent.

Most people don't think about this or don't care. That is until it happens to them or someone they know. There was a petition created through change.org that surprisingly only got 309 signatures. That number is incredibly low considering how many people that I've seen in the forums facing the issue. I think the reason is that most of the people affected by this are the low income families who don't routinely use the internet. The CPS success rate is lower when it involves the families that can afford a lawyer. I'd be willing to bet that they've never opened a case against a family where mom or dad is a lawyer. They want to take on the fight that they know they can win.


What Do the People Think About This Video?

What a weird interview.

There is no agency if they cannot take children from the homes. The very Federal funding creates a business of this. To think CPS really cares, is a problem. What does caring look like, when toddlers are placed on psychiatric drugs? Ask the judges how much money they get for each child placed in foster homes. It's not that all foster homes are bad, as he says, but the corruption is widespread and is about money making. Most of the children have been abused, and are abused in foster care, especially in institutions, but the 'treatment' is not there for healing. Drugs are just Pharmaceuticals getting in their profit, for children they are able to classify as 'throwaways'. Many will end up in prisons.

SHUT THEM DOWN as the 14th amendment is nullified by THEM and their ACTIONS.
wake UP.
there is NO DUE PROCESS HERE and also for anyone dealing with the COURTS and the bs hearings inre to ADULTS with intellectual handicapping conditions or PSYCH ONES.
THEY TAKE THEM the SAME WAY.

NO DUE PROCESS AND KANGAROO COURTS also known as HEARINGS.

IF THERE IS EVIDENCE OF ABUSE
REMOVE THE OFFENDERS AND LEAVE THE CHILDREN IN THEIR OWN HOMES AND IN THE CARE OF ANOTHER FAMILY MEMBER.

same for ADULTS--

LEAVE OUR KIDS ALONE.



WAKE UP AND DEMAND THE END OF THIS CRAP.


NEVER EVER VOLUNTARILY SPEAK TO THESE SOCIAL WORKERS AND NEVER EVER ADMIT THEM INTO YOUR HOMES without a WARRANT.


do NOT PLAY WITH THEM OR THINK THAT COOPERATING WITH THEM GIVES YOU A WINNING EDGE.

Well that was awkward. I Really want to believe that this guy was a former CPS investigator, but he shows no real credentials. If I was a whistleblower, i'd be giving my old unit, flashing my badge, etc.

Unfortunately, my gut is saying that this is a staged video interview between friends who simple are eager to get the message out about how corrupt CPS is. I'd like to be proven different, but this guy just doesn't seem like a likely candidate.

Ah Lil' Dickens where are you and to what year does child abuse stem from

Was jesus but a child laborer in his step fathers carpenter shop?
How many mids and bodies were torturred because a child was a Native, not just an American Native, but every Mother FN white raced and based nation was looking out for their welfare.
In the heartlands today native american babies and youths are being ripped from homes and given over to for profit organizations and srerilozed male and female bitches to raise as under priveledged but with all kinds of free crap and monthly paid Disability or made up illnesses.
The white race as a gendered cultire has no moral high ground to prove its superiority of life choices it is a fn killing machine of both mind and soul .
No bureaucracy exist but for the advantage of priveleged groups and the bureaucrat is that group.
It does not have to be competent at its work just politicly acultirated within whatever org they belong to.

I see my comments were censored; I'm disappointed with Activist Post; no one wants to believe that the global elites run the pedophile rings that kidnap children; and the CPS is simply a front for them to procure children.

People will generally accept the fact that the global elites run the drugs and weapons cartels, but not the human sex slave trade.

The abuse will continue as long as people choose to live in denial.

PETITION TO THE VIRGINIA LEGISLATURE FOR THE REMOVAL OF 17TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT JUDGE ESTHER LYLES WIGGINS

The hereby undersigned demand that Judge Esther L. Wiggins be removed from her position as district court judge of the 17th Judicial District in the state of Virginia. Judge Wiggins has proven inside and outside the courtroom to not have judiciary character and has not upheld the canons of judicial conduct.

We respectfully direct our grievances to the Virginia Legislature—the only organism in power to carry out such procedure and wish to let it be known that Judge Esther L. Wiggins:

A. Violates Canon 3 of Virginia judiciary conduct by allowing bias and prejudice to influence her decisions in the courtroom.
B. Carries out proceedings and reaches verdicts without admitting important evidence that may influence the case.
C. Does not uphold the well being of the family as a priority and abuses her power by stripping parents from seeing their children causing great grievance and suffering.
D. Is not competent in her functions. The judge does not operate in an impartial manner to the detriment of children and families who suffer the consequences of her actions.

This petition is presented by several parents who have lost custody of their children due to Judge Esther L. Wiggins’ ineptitude and lack of judicial character. It is also important to note that this is not an isolated case, but rather a pattern of consistent bias and abuse of power as is clearly demonstrated by the cases of:

• Benita Washington, (mother of Moses) Moses was taken from his family after suffering an asthma attack. Esther Wiggins refused to consider awarding temporary custody to Ms. Washington’s family. The child was promptly given up for adoption.
• Hey, Nancy and husband Slitor, Kit (parents of Sabrina) Sabrina was given away to a politically connected couple in Arlington Virginia. The removal was based on a disability Nancy Hey suffers from; a very mild and functional level of autism. In the judicial opinion, Esther Wiggins focused on trivial reasons for giving away Mrs. Hey’s daughter. The community is concerned that any parent suffering from Asperger’s Syndrome or any other disorder can easily lose custody of their child.
• Dr King, Ariel (mother of Arianna Lelani) Arianna’s case has been taken by the United Nations Human Rights Council and the German Embassy. This child contracted a rare blood disorder and shows signs of sexual abuse. Judge Esther Wiggins insisted on taking jurisdiction over the child even though the child lived in Virginia less than one month.
• Naomi L. P. (mother of C) After Esther Wiggins awarded sole custody to the father, Eric Krempp who then sent C. to France and abandoned the child for nearly six years with his mother. The last time Naomi saw her daughter, the child was unable to speak English. The mother was forced to pay thousands of dollars in child support to a man who did not have custody of his child. Virginia child support enforcement neglected to send all that money to the French government to reimburse them for all their expenses for the child.

Other women affected by Esther Wiggins are: Robinson, Carla; Byrd, Tylane and several other parents who wish to be represented on this petition, but remain anonymous out of fear of reprisal. Parents have expressed many concerns that Judge Wiggins does not notify all parties that there is not a court reporter present. Parents discover this court does not have court reporters until after the fact, thus failing to maintain any record of what takes place in the courtroom.

To Live in Fear is No Way to Live

 The posts are mostly from anonymous posters. They're concerned but don't want to put themselves in the line of fire. The facts are what they are, facts. We don't know that everything the posters have posted is true, but if even half of this is true that is too much. Is the government backing CPS in the worlds largest child abduction ring? I cannot say no to that question, and neither can anyone reading this. We can say they're taking children from good homes and putting them in dangerous situations. They can spin the thing however they want.

Example:

CPS shows up at your door with an  anonymous tip. (We don't even know that there is a face behind that tip.) They've allegedly been told that there is a case of neglect. 

"We don't have a name," they explain. 
"However it has been said that you're beating your children, you've been spotted driving drunk with you're kids in the car. You've been smoking marijuana in front of your children, and you've left them alone unsupervised for hours at a time." They claim. 

"No, that isn't true." You reply.  

"Is there someone who might have an ax to grind with you?" They ask. 

(Of course the parents or parent are blindsided by this, and cannot think of one person who might have made such a false report.)

 "No...I can't think of anyone who might have said such a thing."  

"Well if you go and pass a drug test we'll close this case, and it will all be over." 



Does smoking marijuana make you an unfit parent?

(In 2009, over 16.7 million Americans used marijuana according to a national
survey. This equates to a percentage of approximately 5.5% Americans who may smoke or use marijuana.)
So here we have parents who may occasionally smoke marijuana, which has been legalized in two states, and is set to be decriminalized or legalized in a handful of others. They're going to have to fight for their rights to keep their children. If they fail the drug test for what will soon be as legal as alcohol, all the accusations will be considered true. Just because they didn't own up to their usage, which didn't take place in front of their children. Now they beat and neglect their children because they smoke pot. If they smoke marijuana they're obviously are demons who abuse kids. They threw a bunch of shit against the wall and hoped something would stick to damage the credibility of the parents. 

With no evidence that any of the other accusations are true they're treated like criminals for something that is socially acceptable. People are starting to realize that marijuana is less harmful than alcohol. Not just for the user, but for those around them as well. Marijuana vs Booze? That's a discussion for another day, because both can have you in hot water with CPS.


The Corrupt Business of Child Protective Services

http://www.parentalrights.org/index.asp?SEC={5433EE7C-6775-4D17-A2A1-CE4686AE1697}

By Nancy Schaefer
Georgia State Senate, 50
th District
revised September 25, 2008

My introduction into Child Protective Service cases was due to a grandmother in an adjoining state who called me with her tragic story. Her two granddaughters had been taken from her daughter who lived in my district. Her daughter was told wrongly that if she wanted to see her children again she should sign a paper and give up her children. Frightened and young, the daughter did. I have since discovered that parents are often threatened into cooperation of permanent separation of their children.

The children were taken to another county and placed in foster care. The foster parents were told wrongly that they could adopt the children. The grandmother then jumped through every hoop known to man in order to get her granddaughters. When the case finally came to court it was made evident by one of the foster parent’s children that the foster parents had, at any given time, 18 foster children and that the foster mother had an inappropriate relationship with a caseworker. In the courtroom, the juvenile judge acted as though she was shocked and said the two girls would be removed quickly. They were not removed. Finally, after much pressure being applied to the Department of Family and Children Services of Georgia (DFCS), the children were driven to South Georgia to meet their grandmother who gladly drove to meet them.

After being with their grandmother two or three days, the judge, quite out of the blue, wrote up a new order to send the girls to their father, who previously had no interest in the case and who lived on the West Coast. The father was in “adult entertainment”. His girlfriend worked as an “escort” and his brother, who also worked in the business, had a sexual charge brought against him.

Within a couple of days the father was knocking on the grandmother’s door and took the girls kicking and screaming to California.

The father developed an unusual relationship with the former foster parents and soon moved to the southeast. The foster parents began driving to the father’s residence and picking up the little girls for visits. The oldest child had told her mother and grandmother on two different occasions that the foster father molested her.
To this day after five years, this loving, caring blood relative grandmother does not even have visitation privileges with the children. The little girls are, in my opinion, permanently traumatized and the young mother of the girls was so traumatized with shock when the girls were first removed from her that she has never completely recovered. The mother has rights but the father still has custody of the children.

Throughout this case and through the process of dealing with multiple other mismanaged cases of the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS), I have worked with other desperate parents across the state of Georgia and in many other States because their children were taken for no cause and they have no one with whom to turn. I have witnessed ruthless behavior from many caseworkers, social workers, investigators, lawyers, judges, therapists, and others such as those who “pick up” the children. I have been stunned by what I have seen and heard from victims all across this land.

In this report, I have focused mainly on the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS). However, I believe Child Protective Services nationwide has become corrupt and that the entire system is broken beyond repair. I am convinced parents and families should be warned of the dangers.
The Department of Child Protective Services, known as the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS) in Georgia and other titles in other states, has become a “protected empire” built on taking children and separating families. This is not to say that there are not those children who do need to be removed from wretched situations and need protection.

However, this report is concerned with the children and parents caught up in “legal kidnapping,” ineffective policies, and an agency that on certain occasions would not remove a child (or children) when the child was enduring torment and abuse.

In one county in my District, I arranged a meeting for thirty-seven families to speak freely and without fear. These poor parents and grandparents spoke of their painful, heart wrenching encounters with DFCS. Their suffering was overwhelming. They wept and cried. Some did not know where their children were and had not seen them in years. I had witnessed the “Gestapo” at work and I witnessed the deceitful conditions under which children were taken in the middle of the night, out of hospitals, off of school buses, and out of homes. In one county a private drug testing business was operating within the agency’s department that required many, many drug tests from parents and individuals for profit. It has already made over $100,000.

Due to being exposed, several employees in this particular office were fired. However, they have now been rehired either in neighboring counties or in the same county again. According to the calls I am now receiving, the conditions in that county are returning to the same practices that they had before the light was shown on their evil deeds.
Having worked with probably 300 cases statewide, and now hundreds and hundreds across this nation and in nearly every state, I am convinced there is no responsibility and no accountability in Child Protective Services system.
I have come to the conclusion:

· 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 Manual” 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 oftentimes 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.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

1. Call for an independent audit of all State Child Protective Services (CPS) and for a Federal Congressional hearing on Child Protective Services nationwide.

2. Activate immediate change. Every day that passes means more families and children are subject to being held hostage and their lives destroyed.

3. Abolish the Federal and State financial incentives that have turned Child Protective Services into a business that separate families for money.

4. Grant to parents their rights verbally and in writing.

5. Mandate a search for family members to be given the opportunity to adopt their own relatives if children need to be removed permanently.

6. Mandate a jury trial where every piece of evidence is presented before permanently removing a child from his or her parents. Open family court. Remove the secrecy. Allow the press and family members access. Give parents the opportunity in court to speak and be a part of their children’s future.

7. Require a warrant or a positive emergency circumstance before removing children from their parents. (Judge Arthur G. Christean, Utah Bar Journal, January, 1997 reported that “except in emergency circumstances, including the need for immediate medical care, require warrants upon affidavits of probable cause before entry upon private property is permitted for the forcible removal of children from their parents.”)

8. Uphold the laws when someone fabricates or presents false evidence. If a parent alleges fraud, hold a hearing with the right to discovery of all evidence made available to parents.

FINAL REMARKS

On my desk are scores of cases of exhausted families and terrified children. It has been beyond me to turn my back on these suffering, crying, and beaten down individuals. We are mistreating the most innocent. Child Protective Services have become an adult centered business to the detriment of children. No longer is judgment based on what the child needs or who the child wants to be or with whom, or what is really best for the whole family; it is some adult or bureaucrat who makes the decisions, based often on just hearsay, without ever consulting a family member, or just what is convenient, profitable, or less troublesome for the social workers.

I have witnessed such injustice and harm brought to so many families that I am not sure if I even believe reform of the system is possible! The system cannot be trusted. It does not serve the people. It obliterates families and children simply because it has the power to do so.
Children deserve better. Families deserve better. It’s time to pull back the curtain and set our children and families free.

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.
Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and the needy” Proverbs 31:8-9



Ten Things You Must Do if CPS Knocks at Your Door

 1) TAKE THE ACCUSATION SERIOUSLY.
Parents are routinely accused of ridiculous things: trying to sell their children to relatives for drug money; molesting a child in the living room during a family party;  beating a child with a baseball bat – without leaving bruises. Yes, those were real calls to CPS – all taken as true by investigators. I don’ t care how absurd or unbelievable the caseworker sounds. Understand that SHE is serious, and likely presumes – no, likely “KNOWS” that you are guilty as accused. Even if she doesn’ t flat out say that she’ s there to take the children, she is quite possibly intent on doing just that. In testimony to Congress, Chris Klicka, senior counsel for the Home School Legal Defense Association, stated that a case worker with 30 years’ experience once confided in him that “When I started working, we tried to prove the family was innocent. Now we assume they are guilty until they prove they are not.”

2) ASK WHAT THE CHARGES ARE.
Most of the time, the caseworker wants to keep you in the dark as to what you have been accused of. despite being required by federal and state law to tell you details of the accusation at her first contact with you. Don’t settle for the answer of “abuse” or “neglect.” Those are categories, not details. You are entitled to know what specific actions you are accused of committing.

3) SHUT UP. SHUT UP NOW.
It is imperative that you not submit to a CPS interrogation before talking to your attorney. It is natural that innocent parents who have nothing to hide want to explain everything so that a reasonable person can see that there’s no problem here. But CPS agents are not reasonable. To them, the accusation IS the evidence against you. That caseworker is there to find evidence to support what she already believes to be true – that you abused your child.
If you say nothing to them, you have taken away their greatest weapon, which is their ability to twist your words. Let me give you some examples of what was done to parents who did talk to them:
The husband of a client of mine had been accused of sexually molesting their autistic, non- verbal daughter. The CPS investigator asked the mother if her daughter had exhibited any unusual behavior lately. The only thing she could think of was that a couple of times the month before, the girl had wanted her mother to come lay down with her for a few minutes. Usually, she would just go in by herself and go right to sleep. The investigator stated to the court that the mother admitted her child had become afraid of her own bedroom.
One father I defended told the caseworker that he had disciplined his daughter over a 20 minute period, where he would talk to her about what she had done wrong, swat her a few times, and then talk some more. The investigator stated to the court that the father admitted to beating his child non-stop for 20 minutes.

4) FIND AN ATTORNEY WHO HAS EXPERIENCE FIGHTING CPS.
When? As soon as you realize your family is being investigated. The sooner an experienced attorney enters the picture, the sooner he or she can put a stop to abusive CPS tactics. Please note that I said experience in FIGHTING CPS. Many attorneys- if not most – believe their role is to find out what CPS wants and make sure their clients do it. That way often leads to disaster – and the loss of your children.

5) BE POLITE.
Hostility toward the investigator is considered evidence of guilt. Your perfectly natural angry reaction to being accused of harming your child will be used as evidence of an abusive personality. This is where an attorney can be a valuable asset. He or she can stand up to the bully on your behalf.

6) NEVER LET THEM IN YOUR HOME.
Under no circumstances should you let any government agent in your home unless he or she has a court order. Ask to see the warrant or order, because the CPS worker may lie and say she has one when she doesn’t. When she doesn’t have one, politely but firmly tell her that she will have to stay outside until she gets one. If she claims it’s an emergency, make her tell you what it is. Call her bluff – if it were a true emergency, she would not be asking – she’d be there with armed police officers, forcing her way in. Do not even open the door to let her look at the children.
There is no compromise on this. There are no exceptions. If you invite a caseworker into your home, you have waived your fourth amendment protection. And if the caseworker is intent on taking your children, SHE WILL FIND SOMETHING IN YOUR HOME TO JUSTIFY IT. THAT IS A GUARANTEE.
Understand that you may be threatened. You may be lied to. She may tell you that the 4 th amendment doesn’ t apply to caseworkers. That is a lie. She may tell you that she doesn’ t need a warrant. That is a lie. She may tell you that she’ll return with armed police officers. And she very well may. But that changes nothing. Even a man with a gun on your porch doesn’t change the fact that she has no right to enter your home.
Listen to the words of an ex-CPS investigator:
“I wish I could shout from the highest mountain to parents to vigilantly learn their rights! If they knew what their legal rights were there would be significantly lower numbers of child removals. Social workers, unlike policemen making an arrest, are not required to inform the parents of their legal rights. All we had to do to remove a child was to show up at the home and tell the parents we came to remove the kids. Often times we would take a police officer with us (never telling the parents he was there for MY protection, not to enforce an order or warrant). 99% of the time we never had to get a warrant or court order to remove kids because the parents would be so intimidated by the officer that they would just hand their kids over and show up for court the next day. But if they had legally known their parental rights, they could simply have told me that I could not take the children unless I had a court order signed by the judge or had a warrant to remove the kids. … the majority of times parents were just intimidated and gave consent for the whole process to begin; completely unknowing of what rights they just waived.”
If officers do force their way in, do not physically resist. Make your objections clear, but stand aside. There’s no point in getting arrested, or risking injury or death. Your children need you fighting for them, and you can’t do that from a jail cell or hospital. Demand that you not be separated from your children, and that your children be interrogated only with your attorney present. (This demand will likely be ignored, but demand it anyway. The fact that they ignored you may become important in later court proceedings.)

7) RECORD EVERYTHING.
Demand that CPS tape any interrogation of your child. They are required by Texas law to do so. Bring your own recorder in case the CPS agent “loses” hers.
Tape record every conversation you have with a CPS worker – but do it secretly. Nothing in my experience enrages a CPS worker – leading to rash action – faster than finding out she’s being recorded. So don’t tell her. In Texas, it’s perfectly legal to secretly record any conversation that you are a part of.

8) HAVE A DOCTOR EXAMINE YOUR CHILD.
If the accusation is one of physical abuse, have your doctor give your child a thorough physical exam. Ask him to write a letter stating that no bruises, marks, or health concerns were found on the child that would create suspicion of child abuse or neglect. Go to a doctor you trust. Never never never go to a doctor recommended by CPS.

9) GET FRIENDS AND FAMILY INVOLVED IN THE FIGHT.
Gather names of friends and relatives who are willing and able to care for your children if CPS takes them. They are required by law to place with family or friends before considering a foster care child warehouse, but will often ignore that law if you let them. Don’t let them. If your children must spend time away from you, it’s far better that they do so with people you know and trust than in an abusive foster facility.
Also, get your friends, family, co-workers, pastor – anyone who has seen you parenting your child – to write a letter on your behalf, stating what a good parent you are. CPS investigators are required to take such information into consideration, and it’s much harder for them to illegally snatch your child without cause when they know a crowd is watching them.

10) NEVER ADMIT GUILT.
Never, ever admit to anything. Even if CPS has taken your children and offers to give them back if you do (they won’t), it would be immoral to do so if you truly haven’t done anything. Even if you did make a momentary mistake, admitting so may be a quick way to jail and to lose your kids forever.
CPS agents are not above lying to you to prove you guilty of something, so don’t trust what they say. They won’t understand. They won’t give you a break. They will use anything you say against you, and even make stuff up. Don’t make it easy on them.

Alex Jones Knows What is Happening


This may not be a problem you're facing right now. You might not even have children, but it's a problem that isn't going away. Not unless we all acknowledge what's happening and force the hands that can stop it to do so. All the info out there hasn't stopped them, and that includes this blog. It will never stop unless we the people force a change. I'm in...are you?
