MI: CPS out of control

June 20, 2016 in corruption, CPS, Michigan

I just can’t get over how authoritarian our government has gotten. I mean, we lived in a house with an outhouse. Gee, that would certainly be frowned upon by CPS today.

“They had been living in the tents for nine days when police arrived.”

Heck, we used to go to camping in Coldwater, MI for a month, every summer. My husband worked for General Electric and got per diem, so the kids and I spent our days by the lake while my poor husband when to work.  I know that’s not the same thing, but they could have hassled us. We would bring along the fridge and bbq grill, not to mention we camped with five tents.

“The government has tried to standardize what a home is and what a home must have, without consideration for if the children’s needs are being met or not,” Christopher and Antonia said in a joint statement. “This was not a case of neglect, but a case of the government telling us how we have to raise our children — that we must have running water, we must have electricity and we can’t stay in a tent for the summer. To the government it makes no difference if the children are happy and healthy. We need to conform to their idea of normal or they can take your children away.”

They added, “Taking children from families needs to be limited to clear cases of neglect and abuse. It should be every parent’s right to raise their children as they see fit, unless the government can prove that what the parent is doing is actually harming the child.”

So glad things turn out for them.  Read the entire story in OffTheGridNews.

Police Seize 6 Children Simply Because Family Was Camping – Article published: June 12, 2015 

 

 

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.

Federal VS State: Follow the Money

August 31, 2013 in corruption, CPS, investigation, Michigan

Many people are confused by just who has the ability to change the laws.  One reader wrote in:

My US Senator just emailed me. She said that CPS is a state agency and she has nothing to do with them. She ignores the fact that US Legislators passed Social Security Title IV, which in part, pays CPS to remove a child, even if there is no evidence of abuse or neglect. She also ignores the fact that Title IV also rewards each state that has a certain number of adoptions above the quota.

Maura D. Corrigan

Maura D. Corrigan

How do those states get enough children to adopt above the quota? They take them.

She also ignores studies, by agencies within Health and Human Services, a federal agency. The studies prove that more children are abused, neglected, raped and murdered in CPS “protection,” than are those left at home with their parents. Also, studies have shown that over time, children left at home fare better emotionally and psychologically, than those removed and placed in the system.

Maura Corrigan bragged about receiving a large adoption bonus from the State of Michigan. She also stated that Michigan returns 50.1% of children removed from the home. I find it hard to believe that 49.9% of parents are that bad that they can’t or won’t do what CPS requires for their return. What actually happens is that when a parent fulfills a requirement, CPS adds more requirements. Then CPS delays setting up a parenting plan, then tells the court the parent has not met deadlines; deadlines that were never established. Or, CPS brainwashes the children into believing their parents never wanted them.

CPS kidnapping is both a state and federal issue. We have to enforce current laws that CPS ignores. We have to change unjust laws that protect corrupt CPS workers, police and courts. We have to change laws that allow people to falsify CPS complaints and get away with it, while the family is destroyed.

This is a common misconception.  Your congressman was right.  The Senate doesn’t have much to do with HHS or CPS. You need to contact your U. S. House Representative, they approve the funding and hold the purse strings.  The states make policy, legislators make law.

Your senator can call for a hearing and investigate but they rarely do.  If CPS breaks the laws, it is the house who has the power to investigate and change things.

Court Exposed: Wayne County, MI

May 26, 2012 in CPS, due process, family court, justice, Michigan

We put Wall Street men and women in jail when they defraud people of their money. Yet Judge Leslie Kim Smith thinks nothing of giving her clerk a stamp with her signature on it — to remove people’s children. And nothing is being done about.

What is wrong with this picture?

Families torn apart illegally? Heather Catallo investigates

University of Michigan Law Logo

By:  Heather Catallo

(WXYZ) – When protective services take children from their parents, state law  says a judge must first personally review the case and sign off. But that was  not happening in one of Michigan’s busiest courts.

It’s called “rubber stamping,” and last August 7 Action News first exposed  how court staff were literally stamping a judge’s name onto orders that allowed  the state to take kids from their parents.

After our investigations – the rubber stamping stopped – but no one has ever  been held accountable — not the judge, not the chief judge or child protective  services.

“Why was this allowed to happen in your court,” Catallo asked Wayne County  Circuit Court Judge Leslie Kim Smith.

Smith is the presiding judge at the James Lincoln Hall of Justice, the  county’s juvenile court. It was her name that had been stamped on removal  orders. And legal experts tell us, that stamp allowed children to be taken from  their parents illegally.

Testimony under oath in the Godboldo case revealed that caseworkers routinely  took their petitions to probation officers inside the court, who would then  stamp Judge Leslie Kim Smith’s name onto the removal orders.

“It is completely illegal,” said Joshua Kay a professor with the University  of Michigan Law School’s Child Advocacy Law Clinic

 

“This system is destroying the future of America.  And if something is  not done about it, we won’t have a future,” said Godboldo.

Maryanne Godboldo is now suing the state, Wayne County, and Detroit police  for illegally taking her child.

Please do some checking into your own case. If your case was rubber stamped, you can and should sue. (It is surely happening in more places than Wayne County, Michigan)

It’s child abuse…

I wonder when CPS will get around to doing their job?  If, as Richard Thompson asserts, that this is indeed child abuse, and I believe it is, then it’s about time the hypocrisy is exposed.  Kids are in school to be educated, not indoctrinated.

 

Student Sues School District and Teacher After Being Punished for Expressing His Religious Beliefs

The Thomas More Law Center filed a federal lawsuit yesterday afternoon against the Howell Public School District located in Howell, Michigan, and teacher, Johnson (“Jay”) McDowell, for punishment and humiliation heaped on a student after he expressed his religious belief opposing homosexuality when asked by the teacher during class. [copy of lawsuit]

The student, Daniel Glowacki, a junior at Howell High at the time of the incident, was specifically asked by McDowell about his feelings on homosexuals. Daniel responded that as a Catholic he was offended by the gay and lesbian lifestyle. Because of his answer, Daniel was ordered to leave the classroom under threat of suspension.

As news of the incident spread, homosexual activists across the country hailed McDowell as a hero and vilified Daniel and his family, as “bigots”, referring to Daniel’s religious objections to the homosexual agenda as “hate” speech. McDowell is head of the school’s teachers union. The Michigan Education Association, the state teachers’ union, supported McDowell’s actions.

National lesbian TV host, Ellen DeGeneres got in on the anti-Glowacki campaign. Daniel even became the subject of a school assembly.

The incident occurred on October 20, 2010, the day that Daniel’s Economics class teacher, Jay McDowell, wore a purple “Tyler’s Army” t-shirt, as part of a national campaign promoted by the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation to highlight alleged “bullying” of homosexuals.

Rather than teach academic courses that day, McDowell decided to spend the entire day promoting this national pro-homosexual agenda, which included showing his classes a video concerning such “bullying.”

Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of TMLC, commented: “Rather than teach the required Economics curriculum for which he is paid, McDowell, with the full knowledge of school officials, used his position of authority to promote his homosexual agenda at taxpayer’s expense. This case points out the outrageous way in which homosexual activists have turned our public schools into indoctrination centers, and are seeking to eradicate all religious and moral opposition to their agenda.”

Thompson added, “It defies common sense for schools to ban all sorts of unhealthy foods while at the same time promoting the homosexual lifestyle, which hard statistics show increases drug abuse, suicides and reduces the life expectancies by several years. Schools that promote such lifestyles are engaging in a form of child abuse.”

The incident all started when McDowell ordered a student in his classroom to remove her confederate flag belt buckle because he was offended by it. Daniel pointed out the teacher’s obvious hypocrisy: the teacher can promote a message that might be offensive to students, but students can’t wear clothing that expresses a message that is offensive to the teacher.

Homosexual Agenda - Support Daniel Glowacki 2In total disregard of his professional responsibilities as a teacher and the constitutional rights of his students, after ordering Daniel to leave the classroom, McDowell asked the remainder of the class whether anyone else did not accept homosexuality. A student raised his hand, and McDowell ordered him out of the classroom as well.

In this case, the teacher became the bully, and the students who opposed his homosexual agenda became his victims.

A 14-year old openly gay student who supported McDowell at subsequent school board meeting appeared on the “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” to discuss his speech. The student was rewarded with a $10,000 academic scholarship by a digital media company.

The Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), a national public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan filed the lawsuit on behalf Sandra Glowacki and her son Daniel in the federal District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. TMLC is representing the family at no charge.

The lawsuit claims that Daniel Glowacki’s constitutional rights to freedom of speech and equal protection have been violated by the policies and actions of the school district and McDowell. Among other things, the lawsuit seeks nominal damages, a declaration that the school policies and actions violate the Constitution, and injunction to prohibit further constitutional violations.  

In cooperation with the NEA, the MEA, and the HEA, and in furtherance of the national agenda of the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (“GLAAD”), the School District permitted the celebration of “Spirit Day” at Howell High School on October 20, 2010. On Spirit Day, people who support the acceptance of homosexuality wear the color purple.

In fact, the School District permitted its teachers to sell purple t-shirts with the slogan “Tyler’s Army” to students and teachers to promote the 2010 Spirit Day. “Tyler’s Army” is a reference to Tyler Clementi who committed suicide after a video of him having sex with another male student in his dorm room was posted on the Internet.

Senior Trial Counsel, Robert Muise, handling the case, stated: “Homosexual activists, with the willing and complicit support of public school districts and teachers’ unions throughout the country, are using our public schools to foist their destructive agenda on our children, thereby creating a hostile learning environment for those students who oppose this agenda on religious and moral grounds.  This case is just one example of the pernicious effect these activists are having on our students and in our community.  We intend to stop it.”

The Howell School District and the Michigan Education Association (“MEA”), which is a subsidiary of the National Education Association (“NEA”), along with the Howell Education Association (“HEA”), which is a chapter of the MEA, have forged a symbiotic relationship and have worked with one another to adopt policies, that promote homosexuality as an acceptable lifestyle and to prohibit religious opposition to homosexuality. The school district has promoted the concept that religious opposition to homosexuality is equivalent to bullying, hate speech, and homophobia in order to eradicate such opposition.
