TN: Marine Tells of CPS Lies!

December 23, 2013 in CPS

I am going out on a limb here and asking if your site has any recommendations. I have been a victim of the corrupt Child Protection Services out of Knoxville, TN.

We have a baby...for awhile at least

We have a baby…for awhile at least!

I am an Active Duty Marine and have fought diligently to remain a part of my son’s life despite being a state away. Over the past few monthly visits while my son is in my care, he had been repeatedly stating that he is being sexually and physically abused either by his mother or by someone who his mother knows.

I informed CPS in Knoxville about this and after conducting a 13 minute interview, they determined nothing was wrong and sent him home. Being a concerned parent and believing what my son said had merit, the last time he came to visit I informed my command and they got NCIS and CPS in the northern VA area involved which resulted in him being interviewed by a forensic team from Walter Reed Medical Facility in Bethesda, MD.

After an extensive interview, my son displayed what they called a personality shift and displayed knowledge of explicit sexual content, all stemming from what he experiences in his mother’s care. Of course the staff and myself were concerned and they advised that I take him to Children’s National Hospital in Washington, DC, where, after a short 20 minute evaluation, they admitted him into the psych ward (mind you, my son is only 5, so this, to them, was a big deal) stating he was suffering from severe trauma.

CPS and local law enforcement from northern VA and DC got with CPS in Knoxville and they were astonished and disgusted to see that he had been evaluated prior but for only 13 minutes, leaving little time for discoveries.

After being admitted for a few days, I was forced (due to a standing court order parenting plan from Blount County, TN) to return him to his mother’s care. CPS in Knoxville informed me that they wished for me to dropped him off into their custody for further evaluation (I believe they were upset that another state’s CPS was stating that there was indeed some sort of abuse going on in his mother’s home).

I did this even though my court order states I am to drop him off to his mother at a pre-designated place. I agreed, hoping that they would finally take into consideration what the other CPS offices had found. I dropped him off and, upon exiting the building, noticed that my son’s mother had already arrived but was parked behind the office with her vehicle slightly concealed. I drove my vehicle to the back of the parking lot and within 4 minutes, my son was being escorted out of the back of the building with his mother, in her custody.

Both women who were advising me that another interview was going to be conducted were there as well. I was extremely worried for the safety of my son and approached the women on foot with my cell phone’s camera recording the entire incident. I asked them if there indeed had been a follow-on interview because I believe 3-4 minutes was not sufficient time to conduct one.

They refused to answer any of my questions and instead called the Knoxville Police Department. Upon their arrival, I explained the situation to the police and they wrote down the report number but there were no citations written as there were no laws broken. The police and the CPS workers allowed my son to leave with the same woman who he alleged had been sexually abusing him!

I called CPS the following day and the CPS worker who had been involved with the exchange had stated that there was never to be a follow on investigating that they wanted to ensure the exchange of my son did not involve any violence from me. I do not have a record whatsoever of violence, domestic violence, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, anything (again, I’ve been in the Marines for over 10 years with an exceptional record).

CPS took it upon themselves to involve them in this exchange, lying to me that an interview was to be conducted and then attempting to push him out the backdoor without my knowledge. They lied and manipulated me into going against court orders and my gut instinct as a parent and involved themselves in my exchange.

Furthermore, since the incident, I have had zero contact with my son or his mother due to a restraining order she has gotten and I just recently found out, through the courts in northern VA, that CPS in Knoxville has issued an ex parte no contact order against me toward my son! I have done nothing wrong and now it seems like CPS in Knoxville has a vendetta against me!

Is there any assistance or recommendations you might have that could help me fight back at the corrupt system that is CPS?  I have recorded phone call conversations, emails, and videos of the incident all saved and archived for review. I’m in the process of seeking legal help but all the lawyers in the east TN area do not want to take my case because “CPS is against me!”

I am at a loss and fear for me son’s safety! And now, amongst the holiday season, all my court order visitation has been stripped due to CPS’ involvement! Please help!

Kinship Care and Lies

July 6, 2012 in Child Protective Services, corruption, grandparents rights, West Virginia

I have 4 grandchildren that were placed in my home 4/26/2012, by Harrison County, WV CPS.

When my daughter in law had the baby last August she let the doctor know that she had been taking Subutex. She had previously had a problem with narcotic pain killers and had gone to the local clinic for help. They put her on Suboxone and when she got pregnant she had to switch to Subutex. But we could no longer afford for her to go to the clinic.

English: Suboxone tablet - both sides.

Suboxone tablet

She asked her OB about a regular prescription but he said he was not allowed to do that. So a friend was getting it for her.  Also, to make things worse she got my son also addicted to it.So, when she had the baby CPS was called, even though the baby’s system was drug free. They opened a case in February, 2012. Both parents were taking a minimum dose of Suboxone once every day. No one even had any idea that they were taking anything.

The children were always well taken care of, home was spotless, good meals always served, and they were very involved in the kids activities. But because of the addiction, the kids were removed 2 months after the case opened. This has gone from bad to worse.

The case worker told me that I was to keep the kids in their “normal” routine. I told her that the older ones always spent part of the summer in Ohio with their cousins and she said that was fine. So today she calls to tell me I had to get my granddaughter home today, they are not allowed to go out of state except for maybe a weekend and with me.

Also, she had asked me if I WANTED to certify as a foster home and I said I didn’t know, and she said well I will contact a home study and you can look over the paperwork. I did that and because I decided that some of the information they wanted was absolutely my own personal, private business (how much life insurance do I have. who is it with, etc) I decided I did not want to do that.

Then she said I could not keep the kids if I didn’t. And she also said that “WHEN” parental rights were terminated and the kids put up for adoption I would not be allowed to do that if I was not certified.

I want to know what I can do to fight this? Are my grandchildren going to have a lifetime of punishment by this woman? Why are they being punished?

Washington Discriminates Against Fathers

May 31, 2012 in biological parents, CPS, investigation, Washington

I am writing in regards to a case in which I am involved in and I can’t believe how the courts, state and CPS system is in the State of Washington. I am the father of a wonderful 3-year-old and through her life she has had some trying times. She has some special needs, but that is not why I am writing.

Craniofacial features associated with fetal al...

On July 1st of 2010, she was mad because her mother who was not there for her birthday and got mad at me while I was holding Morgan. Long story short she punched Morgan in the right side of her head directly in the right ear. Every since then Morgan has had a number of ear infections in the right ear.

Just over a year and a half ago her mother was arrested for assaulting me. She has had mental issues most of her life. The Thanksgiving of 2008 just before Morgan was born I woke up and went down the hall to find her mother getting ready to cut Morgan out of the womb. I stopped it and asked her what she was doing. She said she wanted to see Morgan before she killed herself. She has also tried twice before we ever met.

There have been a number of times where Morgan was hurt by her mother or from her mother not paying attention to her (neglect).

On September 15th, I had picked Morgan up from her mothers and went out to the Yakima Elks Lodge and there were a number of people there that new Morgan and could tell that there was something wrong with her. Earlier that week at a therapy appointment Morgan was not feeling to well and the therapists and I both said she was sick. Her mother said she just had allergies but Morgan doses not have any allergies at this time.

The mother did nothing and that Thursday night when everybody noticed her she was really sick. I took her home with me and was up all night with her. The next day I took her into the ER. She was really sick and had a right ear infection. This could have been prevented if her mother would have paid attention to Morgan. I could go on and on about how her mother doses not pay attention to her. I also have a ton of proof.

Over the last year I have been fighting and fighting to protect my daughter. The courts of course always favor the mother, and discriminate against the father and the fact that my daughter and I are Native American. I have tons of letters stating I am the best father ever. I have had to sale everything to pay the legal fees; the stress caused me to have a small stroke on July 30th, while I was raising money for the Elks Therapy Program for Kids, which Morgan has been in since she was 3-months-old.

I am loosing my home; I have no health insurance and a ton of medical bills. You can see how tough it is.  My daughter means more to me than anything in the world. I could go on and on. She misses doctor appointments when she has Morgan, just like today.

Our state has one of the highest law suite rates against CPS. I have even wrote our governor and got a response from someone else. Not her. She can release murders from the state pen, but she can’t help protect my little girl. What can I do to get my daughter full time? Like I said I can go on and on, and on. She is just like Casey Anthony only cares about her self and not her child.

  • October 25th, Morgan had an appointment with her doctor at 8:30 a.m. She never showed up with Morgan. I tried calling, but I wasn’t able to reach her. She called me at 9:45 after I called Morgan’s grandmother at her work. She had forgotten about the appointment.
  • On November 9th, Morgan had a therapy appointment at 9:30 a.m. and of course I was there, but there was no Morgan. I called and called. Finally Andrea called me back and said she forgot and if it is so important that Morgan needs to be there then I should come and get her.
  • On November 30th, I went to pick her up and her Mother refused to return her to me. I then had to call the police. The same thing happened on December 1st and I had to call the police again. This time the police forced her to give her to me. After taking off her jacket I could see that her chest was red., I looked and she had open wounds on her chest and burses on her legs. I have photos if you would like to see.
  • On December 7th, once again if not for me Morgan would have never made it to her physical appointment. Andrea forgot and I once again had to call her and she was 30 minutes late. Now if I ever did one of the things I have listed, I would be in jail and never able to see my child. Why? Because I am the male and the state always favor the mother. All you have to do is turn on the TV and see how many mothers go crazy and hurt or kill there children. When is it going to stop?

Through this last year Mrs. Lighty Andrea’s lawyer has advised her client to do what she wants and go against the court orders. That is where the police have to come in and enforce the orders. She has contacted my landlords and caused problems. I have always had to give her my address and landlord’s information, then a week or two after that I have always started having problems with them and have had to call the police on them. I have had to move twice because of this.

Mrs. Lighty has told my old lawyer Mr. Lorello that she has been in contact with my landlords and now because of me moving she is trying to get my daughter taken away from me. Contacting my landlords, causing problems and advising her client to not give me my daughter back and going against the court orders are unethical. It is wrong and she did it deliberately causing problems in my life and to help her client win. I have even herd in the hallway of the court house disclosing private information of clients to other people, including information about my case that is not public information.

Through this last year Mrs. Swanhart Superior Court Commissioner has made decisions not based on the facts and if you read the file you will see that she hasn’t. I have just come to find out that she is acquaintances with the family and friends. I am not from Yakima nor do I have many friends in this town. Besides being a male and being discriminated against for that and the fact that there is a conflict of interest with her knowing family and friends, I have not been treated fairly.  Again there is a conflict of interest.

Just recently I took my daughter to the University  of Washington to the FAS clinic. I did find out that my daughter doses not have fetal alcohol syndrome. She was diagnosed with static encephalopathy, that is sever brain trauma caused by alcohol exposed while in the womb and sever trauma to the head (from the time her mother punched her in the head). I did try to explained everything to her mother shortly after and she did not have time to listen to the report. As a matter of fact her exact words were (I have a life and I will talk to you later). That was over three weeks ago and I still have not herd from her.

I am asking for help. My daughter means more to me than anything in the world. I don’t understand what the system is for when they do what they do, instead of helping the parent that has the child’s best interest in mind. It seams like they’d rather wait until something bad happens to the child then deal with all the paperwork and lawsuits then help the parent.

Any further information you may need or help please let me know.

Morgan’s mother needs mental help, she has for many years before we even meant, and again I have proof, but the courts don’t read everything and my daughter is in danger of being hurt as she already has. When is it enough? How bad doses she need to be hurt before something is done?

Thanks for your time.

Big Medicine and the Family Courts

November 20, 2011 in family court, family rights, justice, Maryland, medication

If you are dealing with the medical community and the family courts, this book is a must read. Readers describe the book as interesting, tragic, funny, compelling, amazing, and more. If you think you have problems, please know that you are not alone.

The Good, The Bad, and The Crazy:
(No One’s Ever Called Me Boring)

The Book Big Medicine And Family Court Does NOT Want You Reading

The Good, the Bad, and the CRAZY: (No One's Ever Called Me Boring)The Good, The Bad, and The Crazy: No One’s Ever Called Me Boring (Duke, M.D. Literary Enterprises, L.L.C.) by Mary Ann Duke, M.D., is the true story of a modern-day Joan of Arc who survived being burned at the stake by the male-dominated medical and judicial systems, and now dares to tell the unrevealed truth.

Mary Ann Duke was the epitome of a success story. She graduated from medical school at age twenty-three and became a board-certified ophthalmologist by age thirty. Her private practice in the prestigious suburb of Potomac, Maryland had a patient list that read like a Who’s Who of the Washington Metropolitan Social Register. Dr. Duke was granted privileges at the renowned John Hopkins’ Wilmer Eye Institute. Happily married, she lived in a gorgeous home with her husband and their three beautiful children.

That is, until the day she found her husband and best friend together and her perfect world exploded, sinking her into a pit of despair. This was the beginning of the end for Mary Ann Duke; the God-fearing, small town girl from upstate New York. She began drinking to ease her pain, and the alcohol, along with an untreated bipolar disorder, soon cost her everything…

The Good, The Bad, and The Crazy is packed with life lessons that come together in a mixture of spirit and guts, new-found wisdom and touching sorrow. This writer’s sharp wit and glorious sense of humor (especially when she describes being in jail with an alleged killer) makes her book a page-turner that is impossible to put down!

The Good, The Bad, and The Crazy not only chronicles the myriad challenges and prejudices a brilliant, young female doctor faces from both the medical and legal systems, but it also tells the very personal and moving story of her downward spiral into alcoholism; her private war with bipolar disorder; her fight for custody of her children, and the pain of incarceration. Yet the sheer determination and perseverance of this writer incites readers to cheer for her tenacious spirit that has proven no matter what the odds – she will never give up.

Dr. Mary Ann Duke’s electrifying book challenges the status quo and shamelessly avenges her honor. It is a story of social protest that will be read and revered for generations to come. The final pages of The Good, The Bad, and The Crazy are scanned medical and legal documents that prove the truth of her writing.

The Amazon description calls the book a blockbuster…

A blockbuster in the secret world of sexual discrimination. “The Good, The Bad, and THE CRAZY” is a riveting true story of a young woman trying to fulfill her childhood dreams of career and family, to be repeatedly gunned down by the medical and judicial systems. The author candidly writes of her joys and successes and also her divorce, despair into alcoholism, custody wars and even jail time, with guts and humor.

Dr. Mary Ann Duke’s perseverance is an inspiration to any one who has faced adversity or prejudice, and her amazing story is proven in a unique “Documentation” section.

Congressional Hearing Needed

August 20, 2009 in Arizona, child abuse, Child Protective Services, CPS, neglect

Mesa, Arizona — A 6-year-old little boy was taken from his home by CPS caseworkers, while he was being watched and supervised by his grandfather, a retired LTC USA. His mother had raised him for 6-years, alone as a single mother. False allegations were made to Child Protective Services, by his unwed, absentee, father so, CPS classified it as a dependency case, now the child has became a ward of the state.

This child was never abused in any way; he was a perfect example of a child that was very loved and cared for by his mother. Once they take your child, it is pretty much over. They require you to go to their doctors and programs for months spanning into years.

The mother only sees her child 4-hours a week, even though the Foster Care Review Board says the child should see the mother more often. CPS ignores any requests. There is no accountability and the time ticks away.

My Child Lives in Fear!

Now this perfectly good little boy is going to counseling. They are using tax dollars sending both the mother and the son to counseling sessions with different psychologists, when if they would have just left the child in his home, he would have been just fine. There is nothing to do. This organization acts as if they are God.

In all of my life I have never seen such a travesty and I truly think that CPS in Mesa, Arizona should be looked at for taking little children from their home that never should have been taken from their home. It is kidjacking and this organization should be stopped. They are making huge mistakes and no one does a darn thing about it.

This child was taken by the CPS on July 25, 2008 and has been kept from his friends and his mother for over 8-months now and it will be a year before this is over if then. Someone has to do something about the Mesa CPS department. It is most horrible to see this child repeatedly cry for his mother.

Court Date: August 20, 2009

It is over in the Juvenile Court. This beautiful little child is being flown out to Utah from Arizona to a father who failed to parent him and has a history of drug and alcohol abuse. The court has removed him from a mother who never endangered him or neglected him, and was proven innocent in the court of those charges, yet CPS (Julie Weeks and Deborah Van Der Water) tried to prove for over a year that the child’s mother had a substance abuse problem.

When that did not work so they went the route of mentally ill and unfit and forced her to take medications in the hope she would get her child back. She did everything she knew how to do. CPS swept under the table the years of documentation of learning disabilities and discriminated against her and judged her because she does do things a little differently than the norm. However, she never abused her kids, not once and even in court it was said she was an excellent mother.

After 6-hours in the juvenile court the judge said the child will be going to the unwed dad in Utah, that failed in all of those 7-years to even call or send him a birthday card. This is a darn travesty like I never have seen. CPS of Mesa Arizona needs a congressional investigation and I hope advocates demand one immediately.

Child Protective Services are kidjacking innocent little children out of the arms of their mothers, who have been there for them and now have ruined two more lives; the mother who has an empty bed for her little boy, who will never come home; and a child who can’t understand why he can’t simply come home. He has no idea how to deal with that kind of pain.
