Corruption Reins!

August 31, 2009 in corruption, DHS, family court, investigation, Oklahoma, police

On Wednesday evening, my children and I were having bible study at our home. Shortly after the fellowship left, the children and I were enjoying a little family time, watching television, when we heard three hard knocks on our door.

I went to the door and opened it, not realizing there were three police officers standing there. I walked outside and asked what the problem was.

They asked me my name, and how many children there are in the home.

I replied, "Three".

They stated, "We are here to take your children."

I asked in fear, "Why, what did I do?"

Corruption Reins!

The officers said, "We are here to take your children," and grabbed my right wrist twisting it behind my back. I fell to my knees and they pulled me to the curb, while hearing my children crying NO! NO!

The officers put me in the police car and signaled for a unit that consisted of three car loads of Department of Human Service (D.H.S) workers. They drove to the front of my house and took my children, and then told me if I signed the necessary papers they would let me out of the hand cuffs.

As I signed the necessary papers, one officer asked another, "Why did you give her those papers?" The other officer stated that the children are hers.

They did not tell me why they took my children away, until after I had signed the papers. I am traumatized now and do not feel safe anymore, in my own town. These officers and D.H.S. workers have traumatized my children and me. There was no probable cause for them to take away my children and the traumatic experience we had to face.

The system needs help. What must be done for the 10,000 or more children who are facing traumatic experiences just being in the system? The system is made to keep the people in the system.

It is unfair and unjust. This causes our children to grow up as angry teenagers and adults fearing the authority at hand. They rob us of our joy and destiny. Situations like this create a financial setback, for families already struggling, then to have to hire attorney, can ruin a family.

Families need liberty not legalism, free of manipulation and control.

The accusations that were recorded in the official DHS report are not accurate. They made up lies, testified falsely at court and there was no evidence of cause, for their actions. They lied numerous times in court. If I have to swear under oath (to tell the truth), why didn’t they have to?

Again the house wins; they stated my children have to go through a forensic investigation — that was not necessary. I still have a scared knee and two swollen wrist from being handcuffed too tightly and being pulled forcefully.

Please pray for our safety.

CPS Inflicts Pain

CPS Prevents Mother From Being With Dying Child

My name is Haley; CPS stole my children on April 30, 2009.

How It All Began

On March 2, 2009, my daughter Emma Grace passed away she was 11-months-old. My husband and I were not home at the time of her death, we were at the hospital visiting our new daughter Chloe, and she had been born 2 months early.

At 12:30 p.m. on the 2nd of March 2009, we received a call from our landlord saying we had to come home that our daughter Emma Grace was dead, we rushed home, which was one hour away. Our uncle was watching all the kids (we had 5 children at the time).

CPS Inflicts Pain!

As Our Child Was Dying

When we got to our home the police were there, they said our daughter had been taken to the hospital but they refused to tell us if she was okay. They kept us there for 90-minutes questioning us, and then they finally allowed us to leave to go to the hospital.

Now this entire time they still would not tell us if our daughter was okay, they would not let us call the hospital to check on her. When we finally got to the hospital, they told us our daughter had passed away. We were robbed of her last few minutes of life.

When they told me that she had passed, I fell screaming to the floor, I was hysterical, it was like a horrible nightmare that I could not wake up from. I kept screaming at God for taking my baby.

CPS Investigates

We were kept at the hospital for 6-hours and the entire time the police were at our home, "investigating." When they finally let us go home, the neighbor said, CPS was here and they said that you cannot have your kids back.

I took my children anyway and went to my mother’s home, the next morning I was a wreck I had to go to the CPS office.

I asked then what is going on. They said, "We need to know where your kids are." I said, "Why?"

They said you can either cooperate with us by doing voluntary services with us or we will take custody of your children. Now keep in mind, my daughter had just passed away — it had not even been 12-hours and they were threatening us.

They bullied us into doing voluntary services with them, we did not know our rights, and we honestly thought that they had made a mistake and that they would leave us alone. We felt we had done no wrong. We know we are great parents, we do not believe in spanking or yelling at children.

We have never taken illegal drugs or drank, we attended church regularly and we had only moved twice in 7-years.

They came to our home constantly, always surprising us never calling us. We thought everything was going fine, then we found out our home had an infestation of black mold. So, we decided to move because we had heard that black mold can cause health issues.

No News Is Not Good News

Now with all this stress happening CPS still came out unannounced all the time. Then on April 13th, we stopped hearing from them. They did not call or come to our home at all. We called and left several messages, but we did not hear back from them.

Then on April 30th, we were at my mother in laws home and CPS came with the police and took our children. The only reason they gave was that in the social workers opinion I had mental health issues due to the grief of our loss.

She did not believe that we could parent our children. It was a ridiculous notion. Yes, I was and still am grieving the loss of my baby, what parent wouldn’t?

Grief A Cause For Removal?

But according to the social worker I was grieving too much and crying too much. The social worker is only 21-years-old; she has no kids — not even a husband. So what makes her such an expert?

She cannot even begin to fathom the depth of my feelings for my children, and this whole thing makes no sense if she was so concerned about my children then why didn’t she call me or come check on them for over 2 weeks?

Caseworkers Violate Court Order

We went to the shelter care hearing and the judge court ordered all 4 of my children to be placed with my mother and father, but they still to this day have only placed the 3 oldest with my parents, they have not placed my baby with them.

We were court ordered to do all these services that CPS was supposed to pay for, but they still have not sent me the referrals, so I went and paid for them myself.

Our baby is still with a "foster family" we had a family team meeting on the 5th of June. What a joke that was! The foster family who has my baby were there and they said that they wanted to adopt my baby!

I said there is no way!

Speedy Trial? Fat Chance of That

We had court today the 9th of June it was all nonsense. They asked for a continuance and of course the judge granted it. Since this all began I have only got to see my baby twice.

I cannot afford an attorney, but they have nothing on me. They tried to say I was a drug addict, so I went and did a UA (urine analysis) every day and paid for it out of my own pocket; It of course came back negative — no drugs or alcohol. This is the most senseless thing I have ever heard of.

CPS Inflicts Pain!

Protesting Illegal Actions of CPS Workers

We are protesting with a lot of families at the CPS office with signs and banners, the news team from Channel 5 and other news stations will be here in Everett, Washington at 840 North Broadway (the CPS office).

We need to all stand together on this. They are taking our children for money. They get money each time they steal a child and each time they place a child with adoptive parents.

We need to all unite and become one voice for our children. We need 2000 signatures to get a bill passed at the legislature. Please come sign our petition and help us reunite families torn apart.

Terrorist Among Us

You know the real terrorists are CPS and the lawyers who work with them, as well as the judges. They are violating our kids and us. This is supposed to be America the land of the free, that is not true anymore. No longer do i see my country through rose-colored glasses.

Now I see it for what it really is, greedy, conniving, thieves, liars, terrorists.

So, please share this post with all the people you know, we need to set up rallies and get petitions signed. We need to change the laws for our children and the sake of their future.

Stand With Us

Don’t forget starting Friday the 12th of June every day from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at 840 North Broadway, in Everett, Washington. Be there! We can as one make a difference.

If you have any questions, or advice, please call me, we can use all the advice and support we can get.

Today we went to our preliminary hearing and the "lawyer" the court assigned to us still does not know if she wants to take it to trial. I gave her two psych evaluations and of course they claim they cannot find them. I gave them depositions from a lot of family and friends and of course once again they claim they cannot find them. This is so frustrating.

CPS Inflicts Pain!

I honestly do not feel as if this is America anymore. This is no longer the home of my birth, the land of the free the home of the brave. Yea, right more like the land of if-you-have-money-you-can-do-anything-you want, but if not, then guess what, you have no more rights then women over in Iraq who are persecuted all the time. This is the most outright wrongful thing I have ever been through. If I had not gone through it myself, then I would not have believed it, but I will never give up I will get my babies back.

One strong honest voice is louder then a screaming crowd. We all need to unite together, not just us parents going through this but all Americans — all true Americans. We stood together against England to fight for our rights and know we need to all stand together, against those who try and take away our God given rights as parents.

How can anyone tell us we are not fit to be parents? I carried my children for 9-months and I have been raising them for 10-years. I am a wonderful mother. I would give my life for my children. I would gladly rip my heart out of my chest to save my babies from even one moment of pain.

In the Best Interest of the Children?

This is killing my children, my son is 2, every time I go to see my kids at our scheduled visits, when I tell him I love him he starts crying, hysterically, because, he thinks I am leaving. This is hard on us but it is even harder on our children.

I know, there are many of hundreds of thousands of us parents out there, please call me anytime day or night or email me, if we all stand together we can and will prevail. You are all in my prayers remember never give up, these are our children our future we are fighting for.

Wrong on many levels!

January 1, 2009 in caseworker, family court, family rights, foster care, investigation, neglect, Nevada, Texas

Our family lives in Texas. My brother and his wife moved back to Texas in February 2007. They had a one-year-old son and another child on the way. The mom has a mental illness (bipolar with schizophrenic tendencies) and had a breakdown in March of 2007 and went into hiding.

Panic Button!

In the end, she returned to Reno, Nevada.

My brother immediately filed for an emergency custody, protective order, and mental health warrants, but the mom was already hiding (Nevada law technically considers this a felony). Fast forward ten months and the children have been taken into custody in Reno (this was an absolute necessity!) My brother is contacted by CPS and advised that his children were taken into custody in January 2008. He learns that his second child is a girl.

The mom is charged with neglect that is later amended to mental incapacity. My brother is initially charged with abandonment that is subsequently dismissed after supporting documentation is sent to CPS. My brother agreed to enroll in and attended a parenting class; anger management evaluation; and DNA testing to verify paternity.

My brother (and other members of our family) participated in two court hearings in February and March 2008 via telephone. Initially, it appeared that CPS would be sending the children to my brother pending completion of an Interstate Compact on the Placement of Children (ICPC) study, (technically not required when a child is placed with a biological parent – non offending). The children received a new caseworker in April, at that time almost all contact with the caseworker stopped.

We drove to Reno for the hearing in July. My brother was initially reprimanded for not letting the court know that we would be there, until he was able to explain. In the end, the CPS representative was reprimanded for “taking sides,” in not exploring paternal family placement options, and for contradicting medical professionals, which stated that the mom was not able to independently care for her young children and might never be able to, as well as several other things.

A hearing was scheduled to take place at the nine-month mark in October, to discuss placement options.

All of our immediate family appeared in court in October and the master overseeing the case had made an error in scheduling the placement hearing as a review hearing, so nothing happened in court that day.

The foster-father also came to court to support my brother, something that he says he has never done before (the foster parents see the children everyday and observed the strong bond between my brother and his children and the lack of bonding with the mom, as well as lack of ability to care for the children).

Another hearing was supposed to be scheduled in the following two-weeks, but that didn’t happen either. The next court date is scheduled for January 6 and 7, 2009 to discuss placement (originally scheduled for January 22, 2009). CPS will be recommending reunification with the mom (the parent the children were removed from).

Now, there are a few pertinent facts that need to be included at this point. Some may seem obvious, but I want to be as thorough as possible.

Because they are married, my brother has joint legal custody of the children. The mom committed a Nevada felony when she went into hiding with the children.

The children were in a horrid condition when CPS intervened on their behalf. The son had regressed to a 9-month-old in some areas. With good care in the foster home, he has significantly improved from this environmental affect on his development (i.e., he has recovered from her neglect).

My brother is the non-offending parent and has not been charged with any offense. He lives out of state, and CPS has stated that living out of state makes it very difficult for placement.

At the time the children were taken into custody by CPS in Nevada, Texas still had a pending court action regarding custody of the children, thus they had jurisdiction in this matter.

The mental health evaluations of the mom state that she in incapable of caring for the children independently, and may never be able to. She has three adult children that she was also unable to raise. One recently won a hardship scholarship to Stanford based on an essay about being homeless and neglected most of her life.

The mom was recently allowed her first all-day visit, and an overnight visit, in anticipation of reunification in January. CPS did tell him that he could file for custody against the mom as soon as the children are returned to the mom.

Now for some opinions

This is wrong on so many levels. It does not seem fair that the parent who is the victim of parental kidnapping should not have had his children returned immediately. CPS is basically condoning this illegal behavior because they state that those legal issues do not concern them. The father has lost 10-months of the children’s lives because of the mom and another year because of CPS. And what about civil rights…he has the right to have his children.

Nevada does not have jurisdiction over my brother, yet they have refused to place his children with him while the mom works on her case plan. Instead, the Nevada taxpayers are paying for foster placement. The mental health reports speak for themselves…mom is not mentally or emotionally able to care for the children. I realize that CPS has an obligation to assist the mom, but the children should be their first priority.

Reunification with the mom is pending…my brother (our family) desperately needs help.

Shirley’s Story

July 8, 2008 in domestic violence, False Allegations, investigation, parental rights, Tennessee

Rutherford County, Tennessee corrupt officials accused of withholding evidence, dereliction of duties, violating civil liberties…

On December 3, 2006, our world and our life ended as we knew it. My son was falsely charged with domestic assault by his 17-year-old stepdaughter, who he had raised since she was a year old. She told her mother, who had left more than four years previous, that he slapped her and pulled her hair. She was angry because he took her computer away for having posted self-porn on the internet. The mother, once a stripper, now a prostitute and convicted drug dealer on 6-months probation, saw an opportunity to get back the two children that she had voluntarily given up and walked away from.

She called the police and asked for her friend, a detective who is not very fond of our family, to get involved. Although this detective was not on duty, he came, took my son into custody, detained him there and proceeded to search his home without a warrant. In the "search," his laptop computer and several personal items were taken. The detective admitted that he did not have a warrant under oath in court.

Shirley's Story

Then several police officers and DCS came to my home, walking in without a warrant or legal documents of any kind, and said the children had to go with them. Although the front door was open, the storm door was closed, they did not knock…just barged in.

We were all in the kitchen when they arrived. My husband, on oxygen, was very ill and did not need the added stress. We were with the children every day of their lives and seeing the now terrified children was very difficult. He grieved for them every day until he died five-months later.

No Background Check

The police and the social worker took the children back to their mother and released them to her with no foster or other preventative plan put into place, let alone to verify that she was capable of caring for her children. The children barely knew her. She had little to no interface and would only bring them a cheap toy every once in awhile. Unfortunately, that was the extent of her parenting. My son was mother, and father to all three of the children, including hers.

We had never had any experience with anything like this before. I did not know that they were supposed to have emergency removal papers. I did not know that I did not have to let them go. They have been gone for over a year and a half. We have missed Christmas for 2-years and their birthdays. Our little girl is 7 and our little boy just turned 11-last month.

No Investigation

DCS was supposed to investigate this case, and send us the findings within 90-days. We called Friday, and they don’t even have a file on it. They don’t even know where the children are. We have just found out that the DCS worker that came and took them, no longer works there. Our custody lawyer filed our case in court. We were forced to put it on hold, pending the outcome of the abuse case. My son was told that if he went through with the custody case that they would throw him back in jail.

After he was charged with assault, the detective and 12 police officers in body armor came 3-days later, and charged him with rape of a child – 33 counts, and he was put on 1 million dollar bond. Then after they threw him in jail, they took the daughter the next day for a rape test, and she is still a virgin. Her hymen is intact, no rips, no tears, no notches. They asked her leading questions, and with coaching from her mother, she has told terrible lies. My son sat in jail for 1-½ months before he got a bond reduction hearing lowering the bond to $250,000. We were also put on a protective order that prevented us from contact within 1000 feet of them and no contact, not even supervised visits.

We were never advised by our counsel that any of the actions on the part of the DCS and the police was illegal, until we changed attorneys recently. And, although he said that the Judge was wrong, we’ve still been prevented from seeing them. They would not let us get a GAL for them, saying they would put my son back in jail. They will not let us see the police report; in fact, they are hiding it from us.

They are also withholding exculpatory evidence. They have changed judges 4-times, we’ve been to court 29-times, and they have changed the trial date, several times. It has been set again, for next month, in front of the worst judge in this county. They hid the laptop for 8-months, and finally came up with it, and now they won’t let us see it, even though 2-judges ruled that we can. This time the TBI is giving the computer expert the runaround. They have illegally taken and kept this computer for 1-½ years.

They dropped the case of domestic assault – expunged and nullified it, trying to get rid of the police report, after we went to court 5-times, demanding a hearing, and they never gave us one. This has never been done in the state of Tennessee, before. They dropped the order of protection, so that the daughter did not have to testify. When the mother took out the order of protection, under oath, she never mentioned rape. They made it all up so that she can keep the children.

Meanwhile, we are under unbearable stress. They are trying to railroad my son into prison. He has never been in any trouble. We want our children back, and we don’t even know if they are ok. They loved their grandpa; the children don’t even know he passed away. They really loved their daddy. And he loved them, and took better care of them than any man I have ever known. They were his life.

All of this because of a vindictive evil woman, a corrupted detective who everyone thinks is having an affair with her, and a teenage girl, who used to hate her mother, for being a prostitute, but now she is living with her. Not to mention the DCS worker, who didn’t care what level of trauma she put the children under by keeping them from their dad, and a corrupt judge who should have thrown this case out.

It is a waste of taxpayer’s money. This happened in Smyrna, Tennessee, and will be tried in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Rutherford County is well known for its corruption. DCS was supposed to notify us of their finding over a year ago. We haven’t heard a word. Everyone should be aware of what is going on in this country, by DCS workers, corrupt police, corrupt prosecuting attorneys and arrogant judges.

I have written to the governor, the states attorney, Jesse Jackson, the ACLU, our congressmen and senators, and everyone that I could think of. I told the whole story, and sent them all certified, and notarized. I have not heard a word.

If there is any way you can help me — maybe a website that I can post the letter from my attorney on, or anything at all to help, we would appreciate it.

Thank you and God bless,
Rutherford County, Tennessee

Update: The head judge of the county has, by court order, sent this case back to the 2nd judge, for trial. This judge is not nearly as bad as the head judge. The TBI have finally allowed our experts to examine the computer.
