No Fault CPS! WTF?

December 23, 2013 in CPS, foster parents, investigation, Kidjacked

In 2012, my family turned  my  baby  over  to  CPS when I was  forced to go in  for treatment. Upon  my release,  two weeks later they had no choice but to return her because (& I quote) “it  was  due  to  no  fault  of your own, that she was taken from your care. “

I was kept an eye on for about six months, when I receive a letter stating that if I try to adopt or decide to become a foster parent I could not, because I had a child endangerment charge against me. I am wondering if that is because I complained about my baby coming back to me different.

I let them know the concerns I had with the home they put my daughter in. She told me that the woman had children of her own. Her son would hold my daughter down, by stomping on her with his feet. If my daughter dared to cry, the woman encouraged her son and daughter to punch my daughter in the stomach, call her names or slap her in the face.

The children then told my daughter if she told, no one would believe her because she was just a stupid foster kid.

My daughter is only five years old and this woman’s children were much older.  My baby also had a gold necklace, with a gold crucifix that the woman took from my daughter, and gave to her own.

When I contacted the worker to report this conduct I was just passed off with a question on what I was doing to ensure the welfare of my child.  As far as I know to this day nothing has been done.

Today, my child is in treatment herself and wakes up during the night crying because she is so afraid this woman and her children will find her and hurt her again. I spend quite sometime calming my baby down assuring her that she is home safe and sound and mommy would NEVER let anyone or anything hurt her ever again.

Foster care should be a LAST resort…

September 5, 2013 in Child Protective Services, corruption, foster care, Kidjacked, Michigan

Theda Clark was the name of the woman at my first foster home.  It was a temporary home. I was allowed to stay there only two weeks.  Whose dumb idea was that? I was just getting settled in.

Burger Chef

Burger Chef

I worked hard around her house, but frankly she needed the help.  She had three or four other kids, funny I don’t really recall now, just that she was always busy. She had homemade cookies and as long as I was home by six (for dinner), my time was my own.  I got to hang out with my friends at the Burger Chef.

I would sweep and mop her floors, talk her head off and sometimes even helped bake cookies.  She was a sweet grandmotherly type.  I helped her out and she treated me with respect.  I could have been happy there.  She asked Child Protective Service if she could keep me, by they turned her down.  It was with tears in my eyes and a heavy heart that I left the foster home.

Twice within just as many weeks, I was ripped away from everything I knew and loved.  Yes, I loved Theda and she will always have a special place in my heart.  Being with her was a special time.  The cleaning gave me a chance to think. Theda would slip me a couple dollars for a burger and give me some space…something I was sorely in need of.

I went through about 5 or 6 foster homes after that, one had cockroaches and I had to sleep with another girl.  I can remember thinking that was quite odd and I was not happy about it.  I had only ever slept with one other person – my Grandmother – and that was a place of honor.  The girl turned about to be about three years older than myself.  She was nice enough and we got along. I don’t recall her name.

It was during that time I learned to fit in wherever I was, whether it be a biker bar or a fancy restaurant.  I could be anyone I wanted, act any way I wanted.  Let’s just say I tried on several personas; once my name was Tony.  Another time, I went by the handle Tennis Shoe.  It was interesting but unfulfilling, and I soon tired of it.  Besides, it was hard to remember to answer to someone else’s name.

It was a crazy, mixed up, time.  I never knew when I would be forced to move.  I had no say in what happened to me.  My stuff was rifled through repeatedly and stuffed into plastic bags. It’s humiliating and degrading. I think it’s great that they now have groups who gather suitcases for foster kids.

At my last foster home I really learned not to trust anyone, and for the most part I don’t let anyone get too close anymore.  Trust is something very fragile and I can count those I trust on one hand.  Today, I have a lot of phobias.  I have to be in control but I don’t like to make decisions. It’s as bad as it sounds.

I found myself at 14 out on the streets, left to fend for myself. I stayed on people’s couches and floors at first, then it became harder to find friends to stay with.

The Salvation Army

I will forever be grateful to the people at the Salvation Army.  They helped me out so much.  It was the middle of the winter in Howell, Michigan. There was about 6 inches of snow on the ground. My boyfriend and I had no place to stay, so we stole a bale of hay (sorry), dragged it under an overpass and used it for a bed.  I thought we were going to freeze to death.

The Salvation Army not only gave me clothes to wear, but a job.  Then one of the ladies had a room for me to rent. So many people have helped me along the way.  It’s the little things that people do that touch my heart.  I don’t see the world as others do, because I’ve seen the evil that exists in the world.  I’ve been homeless, eating out of trash cans, and planning where to do your business.  Where do you leave the few things you own, so you can work?

Without a place to live it’s very hard to get a job and without a job it’s impossible to eat and have a place to live.  It’s a vicious circle, it’s no wonder so few get their lives back.  I blame CPS for a lot of the troubles I’ve had in my life: they did everything they could to get me to lie about my parents.  I heard them lie in court, on the witness stand.  I am NOT an unbiased individual.  I hate CPS and will do everything I can to make sure no child lives the life I have.

Kidjacked is a place to share your stories, plan, a link to tons if information.  Are you writing letters? Are you planning an event? Send them to me, I’ll add them as soon as I can.  We can win, but we must band together and push back hard.

Having Doctor Trouble?

June 27, 2013 in drugs, Kidjacked, lawsuit, medication, neglect

Many of us have gone through it. The unending pressure from everywhere to vaccinate. We aren’t all scientists, but if you are anything like me you’ve tried. You read through all the medical jargon, the vaccine studies, and made an educated decision – one way or another – about vaccination.

Vaccines Cancer & Mutagenesis

Vaccines Cancer & Mutagenesis

Then the state get’s involved. I know several people who have lost their children over vaccines.  A decision to vaccine or not should be between you and (if you choose) your doctor.

Here’s one way to protect yourself against a CPS charges of medical neglect.

If Your Doctor Insists That Vaccines Are Safe, Then Have Them Sign This Form

Download PDF: Physician’s Warranty of Vaccine Safety

The average person that consents to a vaccine injection, either for themselves or for their children, genuinely believes it is for the betterment of health. What they are not aware of is that even their doctor is likely unfamiliar with the toxic ingredients contained in vaccines which can immediately begin to degrade both short- and long-term health. If your doctor insists that vaccines are safe, then they should have absolutely no problem in signing this form so that you may archive it for your own records on the event of an adverse reaction.

I have previously written that if your doctor cannot answer these 4 questions, don’t vaccinate. Well, if your doctor does make an attempt to answer these questions and a verbal response and statement is not satisfactory for your own peace of mind, then your doctor should be at least willing to provide you with his or her personal declaration of the safety and efficacy of the vaccines he or she (or attending physician or nurse) is about to inject in your or your child’s body. Effectively, this becomes your doctor’s warranty that the risk factors he or she has identified justify the recommended vaccinations with the benefits exceeding the risks.  [Read more]

One last thing, if you can afford it, hire an attorney for your kids.  It will save you lots of headaches down the road just to have one on retainer.

CA to audit CPS…

June 6, 2013 in California, Child Protective Services, corruption, DCFS, Kidjacked

I was so happy to learn that California lawmakers have voted to order a long overdue audit of Child Protective Services.

We have a baby...for awhile at least

We have a baby…for awhile at least!

Child Protective Services is supposed to help children and families overcome stressful events in life, and stay together and healthy. But there are families who say that CPS does anything but that.

Family members testified before the legislative hearing that CPS actually has worked to destroy, not restore, their families. And others suggested there was a profit motive in the situation.

Parents around the state have had to deal with horrendous actions of CPS, like the Donnelly family.

One officer can be heard saying, “I’m going to grab your baby, and don’t resist, and don’t fight me, okay?”

Donnelly said he felt compelled to act, as a father, and as a legislator.

“The footage is frightening for parents everywhere to think that your children might be confiscated should CPS disagree with your parental instincts. It’s chilling to think that a government agency can take your child right back to a hospital that you as a parent have lost faith in, but it happened.”

Donnelly began demanding answers. In a letter, he asked Sheri Heller, director of California’s Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees CPS, to account for how this was allowed to happen.

Heller responded that she couldn’t share that information with an assemblyman, unless a judge ordered her to do so. Donnelly responded, “It has become clear that CPS answers to no one, but this abuse of power cannot be tolerated.”

Was it just a coincidence that I received a letter only yesterday demanding someone investigate the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services?

Department of Children and Family Services, Los Angeles County is "Shawshank"

I am glad they are finally getting the investigation they need, maybe we’ll actually get some justice.

Fresno CPS Steals Children

August 26, 2012 in California, Child Protective Services, corruption, Kidjacked

I’m writing this on behalf of Ms. Coleman. She’s just devastated because of what’s happening. We now have information that the CPS worker had keys to Caroll’s property in Paso Robles and the public defender that Caroll was assigned has been making nothing but excuses and canceling all the appointment’s that Caroll has made.

Fresno Arch on Van Ness Avenue

Fresno, California

Ms. Coleman lives in Creston, Ca. After her husband died she met Paul Bethel through a friend from Clovis, Ca. They got together and had a daughter. She moved in with Mr. Bethel and he later became violent. She moved out and into a home in Clovis, trying to get along with Mr. Bethel.  Mr. Bethel beat her up pretty badly and was charged and convicted. Mr. Bethel continued to harass Caroll and got her evicted from her home so she moved back to Creston, Ca where her house is. Mr. Bethel did not like this and stole all of Caroll’s and her children’s belongings helping her move out of the home in Clovis. He was to put everything in storage but did not.  Caroll was at her home in Creston when Mr. Bethel started calling CPS.  A worker named Alisha Dozier showed up at Caroll’s home, looked things over and said everything looked okay.

Caroll came to my home in Fresno over a weekend waiting for her storage to open Monday morning,  I was going to help her with her things she had in storage.  When Monday came, this was April 16, 2012 at about 10 am there was a knock at the door, Caroll answered the door and there was police saying Caroll had a warrant for her arrest. Caroll came and got me and she went outside and asked what the warrant was for.  One of the officers stepped back and a woman stepped forward, it was this Alisha Dozier she told Caroll she was here to take the child.

Caroll asked what child because she has two children and she also had her brothers son who she had been taking care of for about a month. Alisha Dozier looked like she did not know what to say after that, then one officer said to take this into the house.

Caroll again ask why she wanted to take the children and then one of the officers told Caroll to “shut up and she knew why cause she’s the one that caused this.” Caroll then told her son to go with his sister and take care of her. Then my brother came out of his room to see what was going on.  My brother asked if they had a warrant and the officer said he did not need one, and told my brother,  “don’t you think I checked into that before coming here”.

Caroll then asked if the children could go to her mothers house which lived not to far from me. Alisha told her that her mother had to be checked first. Now all this is happening with no kind of paper work whatsoever. CPS Alisha Dozier had no paperwork and the police had no paperwork, mind you that it was not just one or two officers they brought the Swat Team.  Caroll has no record and I don’t think the reason for taking the children was for drinking, as Alisha said.

So here we have a CPS worker for another county come to Fresno, with no kind of paperwork, brings the Fresno PD and takes Caroll’s children. And to top that off there is no record of Fresno police department coming to my home.

Carolls oldest is 13 or 14 Alisha Dozier left with all three children and drove to Caroll’s mothers home and dropped off Caroll’s brothers son with Caroll’s mother and did not even get out of the car. She parked across the street, according to Caroll’s Mother.

Then Alisha Dozier drove to Paul Bethel’s house out in Clovis, according to Caroll’s oldest child. In the mean time, Caroll and her mother were on the phone calling CPS trying to find out what was going on, with no results. It took three or four days before Caroll or her mother got ahold of somebody and were given a court date.

According to Caroll’s oldest son, when they finally got to Paso Robles, Alisha Dozier was met by someone who started yelling at her.  Alisha Dozier has not been seen since. The day of Court the Supervisor of Alisha gave Caroll a card and said it was her new worker.

Come to find out that was not Alisha’s Supervisor just someone trying to cover up what had happened or was part of the plan to take the children. This new worker’s name is Sara Tindula. Caroll has never seen or talked to this person except over the phone one time. She’s the person that told Caroll of a court Date.

Alisha Dozier was the one that came to Caroll’s house and met Caroll and is the one that came to my home in Fresno with the police, but this new worker Sara Tindula is the person who signed all the papers on the detention report with all of the allegations and has never been to either home, and has never talked to Caroll other than on the phone one time…yet she’s the ones filing the reports.

Now this report says Caroll fled San Luis Obispo County when in fact she came back to Fresno to get the rest of her things here to move back to her home in Creston. Caroll was moving away to be away from Mr. Bethel. The court in San Luis gave the children to Paul Bethel’s brother David Bethel, which gives Paul access to his daughter any time he wants.

Mr. Bethel has taken his daughter from his brother’s home at all hours of the day or night and to make things worse David Bethel and his wife went to SSA and filed to receive money that Caroll receives for her son, and did this without any authority whatsoever.

What gets me is that they filed before the children where even picked up by CPS! SSA is looking into the matter but has not done anything as of yet. They now have split the children and the oldest is living elsewhere.  CPS has still not even looked into giving Caroll’s mother the children. At a court hearing with Caroll in San Luis, they wanted to transfer the case to Fresno County.

The only reason I can think of is because they screwed up.

The Judge in San Luis told Caroll she could have her children returned to her once Fresno had picked up the case.

Fresno has picked up the case and Caroll still does not have her children back. During this time we have been looking into what had happened. Come to find out the CPS worker that came and took the children knows Paul Bethel very well, and has been a long-time family friend. In fact there’s a person named Kathy here in Fresno that works for the District Attorney and is related to Alisha Dozier by marriage.

We have reached the real Supervisor of Ms. Dozier in Paso Robles and she was not even aware of what had happened she says, but she has to know.  One of her workers, Ms. Dozier, is nowhere to be found.

We have made contact with a Regional Supervisor, which said she would look into it for Caroll and was going to have an Administrative Hearing. Caroll has asked for an Administrative Hearing several times without any results.  She has asked to file complaints and no one seems to want to help. Everyone keeps making up excuses. Caroll does not have the money for a good attorney which wants at the least a $5,000 retainer.

Someone has to put a stop to this madness. Caroll has been tested two times and passed all tests. Ms. Coleman has also been harassed by Fresno Police Department. I happened to be with her one of the times and this officer came at Caroll with so much force I thought he was going to hit her, he even told her he wanted to rip her throat out. If I was not there I would not believe it, but he did.  He acted as if he was calling in our ID’s. He physically searched her out in the middle of a parking lot without a female officer present, and had her take her bra off and jump up and down.

When we got home, Caroll called her mother, which called Fresno PD, and they told her there was no stop by Fresno PD on myself or Caroll.  This is bull, and Caroll was stopped two more times by this officer and his partner, the last time Caroll’s mother was in the car and when the officer saw her he sped off.

I’m a Vietnam Veteran and never in my life have I seen an officer or a CPS worker and court system so screwed up. This is a SHAME to us all.
