What CPS Is REALLY Doing

CPS. known by the name of “Department of Social Services” (DSS) or simply “Social Services”.

List of Other Names and Acronyms for CPS:

  • Department of Children and Families – DCF
  • Department of Children and Family Services – DCFS
  • Department of Social Services – DSS
  • Department of Human Services – DHS
  • Department of Child Safety – DCS
  • Department of Child Services – DCS

All of these state departments are ‘governed’  and funded by the Childrens Bureau which is under Administration of Children and Families which is under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

The following are pages from (CFSR) Child an Family Services Reviews/ ETraining Platform for all the Acronyms above. The Rules and Regs put out by Childrens Bureau on how to manage the care of OUR children.

I will explain, dissect, define in laymen terms, what I have learned in my bit of experience and training I received as a CASA. I have learned a great deal more since my year with CASA. I also do not take what ‘they’ say at face value, ever.  I research and investigate. You should too. 

I will do this in sections. I will copy some that I want to point out and let you go to the links and find more.  This may someday have to be a book- cause it will go for many posts.  I will tackle one page at a time.  The links within the post in italic are within the CFSR page. They should direct you to each page of theirs.  I will use some as I go or, come back and break down each of these eventually. I will insert explanation in Green non italic

This is E-Training Platform. Child And Family Service Review Section 2: Understanding the Child Welfare System. Child Maltreatment

Each year, hundreds of thousands of children in the United States are victims of one or more types of maltreatment, =what is defined by CFSR as abuse which include physical abuse, sexual abusepsychological maltreatment, and neglect. The Children’s Bureau has collected and analyzed data concerning child maltreatment for more than two decades, and revealed the following statistics in its 2010 annual report.

  • Child protective services (CPS) agencies received an estimated 3.3 million referrals (or reports) involving the alleged maltreatment of approximately 5.9 million children. 
  • Professionals made three-fifths of the reports, with the greatest number coming from teachers, law enforcement, legal personnel, and social services staff.

This is HUGE. In a report Child Maltreatment 2017 of ACF.HHS it states

Exhibit 3–D Children by Age Group and Selected Report Sources, 2017

that sources of reporting maltreatment is Medical Personnel #1 then Education Personnel

  • Of the 1.8 million reports that received an investigation, 24.2 percent (or 436,321 children) were substantiated, meaning CPS agencies found that those children experienced, or were likely to have experienced, abuse or neglect.

Abuse/Neglect as defined by CPS. Many times the investigation is nothing more than   showing up at parent home and accusing of the abuse and removing the child. 

  • Victimization was split almost evenly between genders, and the highest rate of victimization was for children from birth to 1 year old.

Medical staff turn in parents for not allowing unnecessary medical treatments at birth, vaccines. MD’s will find broken bones from birth or an undiagnosed medical issue in early months and report as abuse. Mothers suspected of drug abuse during pregnancy will have their babies removed. All this and the fact that babies are easier to adopt out. 

  • African American children made up 21.9 percent of victims; Hispanic, 21.4 percent; and White, 44.8 percent.

This is not the stats most know of. White children are more lucrative for adoption. CPS receives approx $6000 for each child adopted. 

  • 408,425 children were in foster care at the end of the fiscal year; the average age was 9.2 years, and the average stay in foster care was 14 months. 

Those younger are adopted out faster. The time frame for getting through a case is supposed to be 12 months, with a couple of delays this is length of time it takes to terminate parent. My guess is the average stay is per foster home. Some are adopted out. I wonder where the percentage is of those returned home. 

  • More than 80 percent of perpetrators (or abusers) were biological parents or stepparents, and another 6.1 percent were other relatives of the victim.

The parents turned in by doctors and teachers for not conforming to orders/instructions. Parents involved in a divorce and the bitter spouse has turned them in to retaliate. This seems a ridiculous stat. I would bet the other 20% are medical and educational. 

There are parents who abuse their children. There are circumstances that a parent would need intervention, help, training. That is a very small percentage though. Which we will never see stats on.  CPS is not keeping stats on the families and children they have abused. CPS is manipulating the facts and the numbers in order to continue their corruption.

Next Post is Types of Maltreatment – Their definition and what it really means.

No Due Process

The following is the basic process of the removal of a child from his/ her parents.

*The accusation is made;

  • A scratch is seen.
  • A parent is charged for a unrelated crime.
  • The parents chose not to vaccinate.
  • Homeschool is chosen as education.
  • The police are called for domestic disturbance.
  • Little Johnny tells his teacher his daddy beat him for making an F on that paper. Vindictive grandma  or ex calls with a complaint.

CPS SHOULD investigate the accusation. Determine if the report/charges are Unfounded or Substantiated.  

  • Unfounded the case is closed (The information is kept, names filed etc. These will be pulled up again if any other accusations come up) 
  • Substantiated case:CPS thinks there is something to the charges. If the child/children are marketable, babies, no health problems, CPS will find reason. These kids are prime. 

CPS will go to judge with Affidavit & Petition to remove the child. OR contact the parents if there is anything that needs to be clarified, or investigated. Possibly things can be explained and resolved (which rarely happens) the child is sent home with the parent /family receiving services, or the child is sent home with no services. The latter being basically an unfounded, after being determined a substantiated.

So a bit of an overlap happens at this point. The Affidavit and Petition to remove the child occur when CPS decides to remove the child. This can occur before any contact with the parents. The parents can be blindsided with a call from the police, or a knock on the door saying CPS determined their child was abused and took them from school  or daycare and the parent is now being charged with abuse. Or a domestic dispute or some other reason the police get involved, the children are removed cause mom and or dad got in trouble. THEN CPS files the Affidavit and Necessity to Remove, after the children have been removed.

*An Affidavit is presented to the Judge –  The Affidavit states when where and what happened, to whom and from whom. The account given by CPS. Facts Necessitating Removal.

along with the ;

Original Petition for Protection of a Child for Conservatorship and for termination in suit affecting the parent child relationship

 CPS files this with Family Court/Judge. This is supposed to be filed prior to removal. From my experience, it is often filed after the removal. CPS manipulates the dates so it seems they are in the process. The judge has no idea.  It is presented as this is an emergency and child is  in danger. The judge reads the accusations, presented by CPS, which WILL justify the need to remove with facts mixed with fabrication. The Judge has to consider the accusations the truth, if they did not they could be leaving the child in danger.

*The judge then determines if the child should be removed, if ‘Yes’ they provide the:

Order for Protection of A Child in An Emergency and Notice of Hearing. – This states that the judged has reviewed the evidence (given by CPS) and that all reasonable efforts have been made to prevent the removal and it is for the good of the child. This gives CPS permission to take the children and place them in foster care or kinship.   The date is set for the full advisory hearing. The Ad litems  (lawyers and guardian ) are appointed.

When CPS removes a child or is called in to investigate, they basically have two options. 

  1. Emergency Removal ;the child is removed and placed with relative or foster care. The Judge has to approve the removal of the child.  
  2. Non Emergency Removal does not necessarily mean removal, it means they are looking at accusations, considering them possible, investigating. They can drop the thing or if need offer services. Removal, may never happen.  The latter is really where most cases should go, but rarely does.  CPS should be helping the families when there is a crisis but they don’t.  This really goes back to the first step of deciding if there is any merit to the charge of abuse. The cases I have seen, CPS files the emergency, because they have already removed the children. They adjust the dates to make it look like the judges decision will remove the already removed child. 

*CPS contacts parents and takes kids. This should be done with a law officer presenting the order. Many times CPS will remove the child without the orders, then file for orders. Or they will tell the parents to bring the children in or something of that sort, with out legally presenting the orders.

This removal can be from the school or daycare. CPS can come and take the child from the school and start the process without notifying the parent. Based on ‘need’ to protect the child. This removal can take place from a hospital ER room, if medical staff notifies for suspicion of neglect/child abuse. This removal can come with a knock on the door and CPS saying they are there to take the child. It is illegal though, for CPS to remove the child without a warrant served by law enforcement, most do not know this. 

The children are placed:  They will place them with grandparents/family or in foster care or group home.

Family or friends/kinship placement the kids are basically dumped at the doorstep. CPS instructs the kinship  take them to doctors  for exams CPS will set up, and get em to school.  If the child is placed with family, or friends, the kinship is not  compensated.  Eventually the child should be placed on medicaid, and medical is ‘provided’. Extra money is not given for clothing, food and other expenses, to the kinship placement. Kinship placement is -grandparents, aunts uncles, older siblings (rarely) sometime friends (even more rare). Because of the relationship with the parents, the kinship placements are dealing with not only taking in children and reorganizing their lives to accommodate the children, but also dealing with whatever the parents have been accused of doing. They also are responsible for making sure parents only visit kids at the CPS assigned times and that the visits are supervised. 

Foster placement: the fosters are contacted from a list of pre approved families.  Many of these already have fosters in their homes. These families do receive compensation for their taking in the children.   Some fosters are ‘signed up’ so they can adopt eventually. These fosters will be looking at the child as their potential own.

Group Homes: this is last resort. Group homes are being phased out, except for those for troubled kids. It is said the homes do not care for the children properly, too institutionalized.  I wonder if this is CPS not wanting the homes. These businesses demand their funds from CPS, complain about CPS and may actually hold CPS accountable for the children. More witnesses and many times Christian based.  Most of the homes are in the bigger cities so this can remove the child from the area, and the court appointed lawyer and guardian

Lawyers are assigned. 

CASA is contacted. 

The Affidavit, CPS presented to the judge, is shared with the lawyers and CASA. 

Investigation into the accusations and parents is NOW  to be done by CPS. But supposedly it already has been investigated, and information is on the Affidavit to Support Removal.

The Affidavit contains,: 

  1. Names of children removed; Names of Parents. 
  2. Facts Necessitating the removal- This includes the police reports, if any. Accusations. The reason CPS was contacted. What the ‘abuse’ is, who is accused of it, the response of the person who has been accused of the abuse, all the statements from all the people involved in the accusation. Police, teachers, doctors, ex spouse, neighbor, in-law, child, etc This is written by CPS so it will describe the worst scenario, in order to justify the removal of the child. 
  3.  CPS History, which many have a history with CPS.  If CPS has been involved for anything one time, there will be a history. Listed are allegations that were investigated, and dismissed. The allegations are in detail. Anything the parent has ever been accused of is presented, in full description, with an open and closed comment at the end.  Accusations and proven abuses are basically cut and pasted from a CPS file. 
  4.  Criminal History: on both parents as well as steps. This will include DUI’s, dismissed and convicted. It will include any past criminal, even if committed as a minor.

This is the case AGAINST the parents. 

Now that the children have been removed from the parents. They are now CPS/the States responsibility.

CASA visits the children, in the home where they have been placed. The CASA should contact parents, others involved with the children, other family, teachers, doctors,CPS. CASA studies the affidavit and police reports, medical records, CPS reports etc. 

The children lawyers and parents lawyers may or may not visit. They have other cases, appointed and paid they are dealing with daily.

Next is the Adversary Hearing. Within 14 days of the removal ( Up to 2 weeks of parents having no contact with their children) The Adversary Hearing is the judge putting the allegations/ the affidavit to the face of the parents.

Those in attendance:  All parents involved come- bio’s, steps, (ex: separated dad, if kids live with step dad and mom)etc. Attorney for children. Attorney for each parent. Attorney for CPS. CPS caseworker. Guardian Ad Litem/CASA. Possibly grandparents/kinship. Children usually are NOT there.

  • Statement is made by judge that whatever affidavit says is true and this is reason children have been removed.
  • CPS tells the judge where the children are staying and with whom. They describe the when and where the parents can visit the children- with supervision.
  • Parents are told they are still in obligation to support the children.
  • CPS has custody of the children.
  • Parents are told to get psych evaluations, from provider chosen by CPS.
  • Fathers told to have paternity tests.
  • Parents are ordered to have counseling, ( for abuse, alcohol, whatever the psych eval determines is needed) by providers chosen by CPS. The type of counseling is to be determined, by the psych eval that has just been ordered.
  • Parents are ordered to drug testing.
  • Parents are ordered to participate in parenting classes. Per eval results

Then the parents are told

  • to furnish the court with tax returns and income proof.
  • Immigration papers.
  • Marriage license.
  • Birth certificates.
  • SSI cards.
  • Indian Ancestory Membership.
  • All medical history of the children.
  • The parents medical history as well as ancestors medical history.
  • Address and Phone.
  • The dates are set for all the next hearings, for the following year. 4 hearings.
  • The opportunity is never given for the Attorneys to tell the parents side of the story.

The next four hearings are basically to hear if the parents are doing their services as commanded by the court. Sounds easy, if parents comply, but it isn’t.  CPS usually mismanages the assigning of the providers so the evals and counseling can not be attained in the time appointed. CPS then presents the case as if the parents are not complying. As time goes each court is another step to terminate parental rights, or possibly reunite them with their parents. 

In each hearing CPS and CASA present reports of the progress of the case. 

The report CASA presents includes,

  • visitation of parents with children.
  • Information of the child in the home of placement.
  • Information of the parents evaluations and attendance to counseling. 
  • CPS has or has not done with the children/family.
  • problems seen for the child/family.
  • suggestions  as to where they believe is the best permanent home for the child. 

The CASA report is read by the judge. CPS also reads the CASA report prior to their having to file their report. Basically they can counter, manipulate and rewrite their report should CASA point out any faults made by CPS.

Early in the case a Family Group Decision meeting is had. A couple more of these ‘meetings’ will happen before the case is closed. In attendance are the parents, lots of CPS caseworkers, attorneys, if they show up, CASA ad litem and supervisor and placements possibly. Supposed to be a face to face relational thing.  The idea of the meeting is parents, CASA, placements, will state their frustrations with not being able to see kids, do services receive funds etc. CPS ‘listens’ and works with them. It is off the record. But not. It is assumed the parents ‘did’ what CPS has accused them of. No one debates this. The plan that has been made in previous court is discussed. Each person is to speak as to what they want for the children. Parents will say they want them home, CASA may too. CPS will respond with do the services then maybe.  I believe this meeting is a waste of everyone’s time and emotions. CPS uses it to get the parents to say something that will be used against them later. CPS uses this meeting to confuse the plan made in court and trick the parents into failing court orders.

It has been ‘mandated’ that these proceedings conclude in 12 months. But many times they go longer. Rarely does the case end before a year. Instead of looking at the get er done in a year as ‘up to a year’ CPS approaches it as plan it out a year. The courts are guilty of this also, they plan out the court hearing for 1 year, at the first court.

Hearing plan for a year:

  • Court:Adversary Hearing -Within 14 days of investigation/removal
  • Family Group meeting -1 month
  • Court:Status Hearing -within 60 days – Review plan of services
  • Family Group Meeting 4 months
  • Court:Initial Permanency Hearing within 5 months- if CPS planning on terminating will give 180 day notice.
  • Subsequent Permanency Hearing within 9 months
  • Court:Final Hearing within 11 months. If parents rights terminated, it is now.

Never are the parents given opportunity to defend themselves. The reports written by CPS and CASA are the only input into the hearings. The judge may ask the parents questions brought up on the reports. The judge asks the CPS lawyer to present in addition to the report they have given. The judge will question the parents lawyers and allow comments from them.  The judge may ask the CASA if there is anything they would like to add, opinion/thoughts.  Usually the judge will go by the recommendations of CPS and a little of CASA. If the parent concludes all services and there are no issues, the child may be returned to the home.  IF CPS recommends.

CPS- You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know

A favorite saying  of mine is ‘You don’t know what you don’t know.” It has actually become a mantra of mine. I think it really should be of everyone everywhere. And we should always be striving to be in the know.

When I was a CASA and went to court for my kids/families I found out so much that I didn’t know. I also realized how clueless everyone is, concerning CPS/Family Court/ and our rights as free citizens of the United States. How is it we are so ignorant of the fact that our children are NOT our own? This fact should frighten every parent. No one is raised knowing what to do when CPS comes into your life. Everyone assumes as a free person, a citizen of the USA, we have the right to be parents of our own children, with no interference from outside governing forces. Because of our lack of knowledge and assumptions, we are totally caught off guard when CPS comes knocking on our doors. Because of our ignorance our own children, our blessings from God, are being removed from our lives, forever. Something that never ever crossed our minds when we held those babies in our arms after carrying them 9 months and birthing them. I never thought that anyone could remove a child from their parents based on an accusation from a random uninvolved person. Yet it is done everyday.

There is a misconception of the children and families involved with CPS. The children are not all abused. They are not all neglected and mistreated. Children are not all being removed from their parents custody for the best interest of the child. Texas CPS states in a report that 75% of the cases when children are removed from the homes lack sufficient evidence of removal. That is a HUGE amount of families destroyed, with no reason.

These children are being taken from their home and placed in unsafe foster care and facilities. These children are being taken from biological parents, grandparents, who love them and would do anything possible to care for them and being adopted to strangers for the $4000 bonus CPS receives. These children are being taken from secure safe homes and being put into the handsof
sexual abusers and human traffickers.

Unbelievable? Inconceivable? Whacked out thinking? Conspiracy theory? No way this could this be happening in America. It is. It really is.

How is it we don’t know it? Because, our children have not been taken from us by CPS. Because when we hear the horror stories they come from the parents, grandparents, whose children have been taken, and we ‘know’ what kind of people they are. I mean you had to have done something to have your kids taken, right?

Nope.

Children are being taken from false accusations. Angry exes, pissed off grandmothers, call CPS to get back at the adult they now hate. CPS investigates, (not really) and if the children look ‘lucrative’, adoptable, and the income of the family is low, they jump on it. Income of family needs to be low, so they can not afford ‘real’ representation. It is also helpful if there is a past involved, for the parents.  Which there usually is. I mean if you have a family member  vindictive enough to call CPS to get back at another family member, you got some crap in your closet.

The easiest way CPS takes possession of babies and young children is through Medical Kidnapping. Sometimes they can get a whole family of kids, if the youngest has older siblings,  With the help of hospitals and doctors, they have indoctrinated. Should a parent have a home birth in some states. Or if you opt out of vaccinations, which the gov has started demanding at birth. If you breast feed. If you have a lot of other children. If you don’t have a pediatrician. If you want a second opinion on medical treatment. If the parent doesn’t have an average IQ. If the baby doesn’t thrive and the MD cant figure it out. If the parents bring the baby to the doctor too many times. If the parents don’t bring the child to the doctor for all check ups. Then of course the mother having been on drugs that is the quickest way to lose your baby. Even if the mother has not been on drugs in the months of finding herself pregnant, there will be traces in the baby. Also if the mom ever looked like she ever might have been on drugs, or the dad, they will check the baby. And just the ‘checking’ of the baby is usually turned into CPS, and they will swoop up that baby, just in case- ‘For the best interest of the child.’

CPS is called when the police are called for domestic disturbances. I am not talking about someone beaten or killed fights, I am talking about spouses fight a bit to loudly. And the neighbor calls for the noise. Or a family get together gets too rowdy cause Uncle Jack had a bit to much and ….and the police are called. These kids are removed because of the intolerant old lady that lives next door.

Schools, teachers, call CPS. Not for the obvious bruises from abuse, but for the disruptive child that they cant convince the parents to medicate for ADHD. YES they retaliate, by calling in CPS for the bratty kid. Schools will call CPS on homeschool families.

When CPS gets their eyes on the prize. The smart, cute, healthy, with no disabilities, child, they will manipulate, lie and connive to get custody of their product. They lie on the affidavit. they present to the judge. They search all background of the parents, and extended family for any past anything and will insert that into the affidavit going to the judge for ’emergency removal’. They remove the child immediately and then manipulate the dates on the affidavit to look as if the child is taken after they find all the ‘evidence’ against the parents then present to the judge days later as if it is emergency removal. The judge is not aware and approves it for the safety of the child. Once that child is out of the parents custody, the process has started. The ‘process’ has been given a year, by government, the intention was to keep CPS moving forward. What they do is plan every case to be a year then they start delays by paying off therapist for bad reports on parents. Or falsify reports to the courts to imply parents are not doing right.

Until I was a CASA I assumed Family Court was like any other court scenario. The accused would have opportunity to defend self, to tell their side of the story. Evidence of the ‘crime’ would be presented, to prove guilt etc.  Due process. There is no due process in family court.  None.  The parents are guilty in the eyes of the judge, because CPS says they are. Never does the judge ask the parents if what is on the affidavit is true. There is no jury, no evidence presented.  The point of family court is to move on with the ‘punishment’ for the parents and to have the children placed somewhere, anywhere, while the parents are jumping through their hoops.

I will lay out the process in my next post.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inconceivable- CPS

CPS is corrupt. CPS is taking children from parents daily under the pretense of ‘protecting’ the child. CPS falsifies records, invents stories, manipulates truths, commits perjury in the courts, in order to steal children from their homes.

Why does CPS take children :

  • job security,
  • $5000+ bonuses for adoptions,
  • other payoffs from those who ‘get’ the children,
  • They believe they are above reproach, and have been given the power
  • child sex trafficking

How is this happening? In the United States, by a government sect? This cant be really happening? CPS has to prove beyond a reasonable doubt there is abuse/neglect before they remove a child, right? Why isn’t this on the news? Wouldn’t the government stop it if it were happening? This is inconceivable. This cant be true.

But it is.

Children are being removed from homes. Parents rights are being terminated. Young children are being adopted out, to families that usually have good intentions. CPS gets big money for every adoption that is completed.  Older children are being put in foster homes, because they are harder to place, for their issues.  Their issues are some label of mental illness, they are medicated, no one wants to adopt a mentally unstable tween or teen.  If these kids do have issues, it is the trauma from being removed from their families, they don’t need medication, they need comfort, they need their families. These older kids are in foster homes. The foster homes receive funds from CPS, the more kids the more money.  Then there is the child trafficking, what better commodity than a tween girl on mind altering drugs who has no parents to intervene- These kids just disappear into ‘the system.’

HOW does no one know this?

The parents, the families involved in this are not heard, they are dismissed, because of the ‘kind of people’ they are. ( I am not being condescending to the parents, the condescension is towards those who won’t hear)  They have no money to get a  lawyer, so they have court appointed. Not that court appointed are not lawyers, but many are just going through the motions. Some will fight for the parent, but they have so many cases, They represent parents or children, depends on what the judge assigned . They don’t get paid enough to get into the details of the case, so they just represent for the 12 month pre designated time, maybe longer with extensions,.Remind the parents   to do the services, even though they are not guilty, just to get the kids back.  Which some do, but not with out repercussions.  Others, do not get their kids, even though they do all they should, because CPS makes more money adopting out the kids than the lawyer does defending the parent.

The parents, the situations, that ‘got the kids taken’ are sometimes not something you would see on Ozzy and Harriet.  More like Shameless. Alcohol, drugs, DUI, divorce, boyfriend, girlfriend, child’s father, incarcerated, paternity testing, spousal abuse, dirty home, low income, unemployed, all of these come up in court reports, describing past and present.  So these parents and grandparents, when they are shouting and crying and ranting about their children being taken by CPS… Most of US think, ‘Well yeah, looks like the kids are better off.”   Thing is, we are wrong.  None of the things listed above are reason to remove a child, none of those things are abuse or neglect.  Its not perfect, but it is what this family has.  And if we are honest most of those things happen behind some our white picket fences.  The reason CPS doesn’t go for the white picket fence kids, is because they would find a lawyer.  They have a car to sell or a house to sell in order to pay the lawyer.  These parents have nothing, so they have no way to fight back.

Sometimes there is a removal for physical abuse on the child. Not as much as they want us to think though.  I sat in family court for 30 hours, none of the cases I listened to were of abuse.  Sadly the abuse we, the public, hear about is when it has gone too far, it is obvious by the dead or maimed child. These cases are not going to be prevented, CPS does not get involved with these kids until it is too late. Either CPS doesn’t want to get involved with the violence, the messed up kid and they ignore it. Or they won’t know about it till after the abuse.  The kids that are being removed for ‘abuse’ are usually reports from somewhere else, a teacher, a neighbor, a pissed off in law.  The thing with abuse, defined by CPS, is too undefined.  So CPS can site possible abuse, for a scratch or a bruise that may or may not have been inflicted by a parent disciplining a child and file for immediate emergency removal of the child, and all siblings in the home.  If the other siblings will be lucrative moves for CPS.  Did you know if a child tells a teacher he got a whooping from his dad, the teacher is justified, if not obligated (depends of CPS influence at school) to call CPS? Technically the school is guardian of your child at school and they have the right to call CPS, doctor whomever, without consulting you.  Schools are pretty much indoctrinated by the liberal government/CPS.  Any kind of report or abuse can get the child taken. There is no investigation, no court hearing, no jury, no due process.   A grandmother can call in and say they saw a bruise or suspect, maybe thinking they will get the kid, when they take em away from the parents. CPS just hears ‘that kind of people’ and now have a source for a bonus. If the child is school aged CPS shows up at school gets the kid to say “Daddy spanks me when he is mad and it hurts a lot” then they go to the judge file an emergency removal. Little Johnny and his baby sister are removed from the home and Dad is arrested for abuse and Mom too for not reporting the abuse. All for the one swat  Johnny received for lying to his mom about throwing the ball in the house and hitting his sister in the head.

CPS is not for the best interest of the child. This is a term they inject into all the court reports and verbal argument  “for the best interest of the child”, … his parent must have drug testing regularly (even though drug use is not an issue) the parent must complete abuse/anger management (even though abuse was not an issue) the parents must go to marriage counseling and parenting classes (even if that not issue).  CPS needs to inspect the home to see if it is adequate, (when prior to them interfering the home was not an issue). The child needs to be placed with a non relative so to not cause family stress (like not being able to sleep in your own bed is not stress). If placed with Kin, before termination CPS will not subsidize the grandparent. For the best interest of the child? After termination if the grandparent is allowed to adopt then they can get some funds. So  does CPS.  Never does CPS want grandparents to be guardians and parents not terminated. They claim because the parents won’t support the kids.  Well, the parents don’t support the kids with they are terminated.  The reason is, CPS makes no money if the children are not adopted out, (they get some for fostering them too, if anything job security).

CPS is SUPPOSED to provide intervention and treatment sources for the families, before removing the children.  They do not.  CPS is to always have reunification as the goal if removal does occur.  They do not.  CPS is supposed to present the facts, to the judge. They do not.  CPS is supposed to be working for the child’s best interest. They do not.

It is hard to believe. Inconceivable. CPS really is abusing families. CPS is lying in courts. Committing perjury. They are destroying families. They are taking children with no justification.  These stories on Twitter and Facebook and all social media of parents telling of the horror of having their kids removed by OUR GOVERNMENT are true.  Some of the judges know, some of them are as clueless as you.  They believe what CPS is telling them, they should be able to trust CPS, right? Don’t know what they don’t know.  Search ‘corrupt CPS’. Hundreds of families have lost children to CPS, some children have died in the foster homes, all have different stories, but CPS has done the same thing to all of them. Stolen their children, with no legal right.

Next time I will tell you how I got involved in all of this.  And it is NOT because I had a child removed.
