Bell County Texas Corruption

September 7, 2016 in corruption, Texas

Hi, my name is Travis. I’m a 40 year old father to a wonderful little girl, a small business owner and citizen of Bell County, Texas. As of now, we have paid $44,000 in legal fees out of our own pocket in our fight against Texas DFPS (specifically CPS in Bell County) and the corruption that is plaguing our community. We are preparing for a Federal civil rights lawsuit to address the constitutional atrocities which are occurring within our communities. In order to continue on, we need your help.

Those who know me, know that I’m a man of principle. My fight is not about money, it’s about stopping these crooked state and county officials who are destroying families within our communities and instituting reform within the Department of Family & Protective Services. I would like to see the creation of an independent agency, which has the authority to investigate grievances against any party involved in child welfare cases.

Standing up for our constitutional rights is a difficult and expensive endeavor. Most of those who have the desire to fight injustice, lack the financial resources to do so. DFPS’s attorney, Dallas Cornish, is well aware of this and has used Bell County tax payer’s hard earned money to fund a coverup of the wrongful removal of a child, which she ordered, and had no authority to do so. Several other parties have assisted her in this coverup. They have violated our state & federal laws and our constitutional rights. These actions have resulted in fear in our communities and a public distrust of our legal system. I want to see them all brought to justice, and with your help, we can make a difference.

Our case is fairly solid. On March 10th, 2016, I was at a car dealership waiting to go into the financial office to sign the paperwork, when I received a call from a friend of mine who I had asked to watch my daughter after she got home from school. My daughter wasn’t on the bus. I had my friend search the neighborhood and go by my daughter’s friend’s houses. When she notified me that no one had seen her, I immediately left the dealership and called the police. When I arrived home, the police were there and they were actively searching for my daughter. I called the school, but was unable to reach anyone. I’ll never forget that feeling. I thought my child had been abducted. I’ve never felt pain like that in my life, and to this day, I still cry when I think about it.

Hours later, by chance, the school’s principal had come in after hours, and he notified the officer who was searching the school’s grounds that CPS had taken my daughter. Why CPS didn’t notify me, my daughter’s sole caretaker, is beyond me. The officer contacted CPS and later CPS contacted me. CPS removed my daughter without a court order, exigent circumstances or allegations of abuse or neglect. Why? Because someone speculated that I might be using drugs. CPS never investigated that allegation, nor did they ever give me the opportunity to prove my innocence. They just took my daughter. I do not use illegal substances, but even if I had been, a positive drug test is not sufficient justification for removal, absent of allegations of abuse or neglect.

All of this could have been avoided if the CPS investigator would have done her job, came by my home and asked me to take a mouth swab drug test. The investigator, Edwynna Phillips, testified under oath that she never attempted to call me and that she came by my home on two specific dates (Federal law requires them to make a reasonable effort to prevent the removal of a child before doing so), but had she actually done so, she would have realized that I have home surveillance cameras. Even though this was an irrefutable case of perjury, the Court chose to brush that fact under the rug. They’ve probably used this same tactic on hundreds of other parents, but this time they got caught red handed. It’s now time to get justice for all of these families.

After my daughter was removed, I paid for a drug test out of my own pocket, at the collection facility that is contracted with CPS. The 10 panel test came back negative. The results were ignored by the court. I took 3 additional random drug tests over the following 3 weeks for CPS, all of which came back negative, yet they still refused to let my daughter come home. I was actually thrown out of the court for asking for my daughter’s return. It has been 6 months now. Why haven’t they given my daughter back? Well, that would be an admission of guilt on their part and that opens them up to liability.

They chose to do damage control instead of taking responsibility for their actions. They publicly tarnished my character, falsified documents, tampered with witnesses, committed fraud upon the court and even committed perjury and we have overwhelming evidence of it all. There is much more that I have chosen not to mention, out of respect for your time, and so, I will conclude.

If CPS has hurt one of your friends or family members, or if you just want to make a difference in the lives of others, consider helping us stand up to these tyrants. The damage they have done to my little girl and I is irreparable, but we might be able to prevent this from happening to other families in the future. Help us send a clear message to CPS & the Family Courts that this type of conduct will no longer be permitted. Thanks for taking the time to read about our cause and may the peace of our Lord be with you.

Gunpoint Medicine

August 9, 2014 in Child Protective Services, Connecticut, corruption, DHS, family rights

If you don’t comply they’ll Take Your Child

by: Jenni Falconer

After having been involved in my own custody battle and losing some of my children to my ex-husband due to the fact that I’m disabled, I sought support for my grief. In doing so, I met other parents who had been through the nightmare of child custody loss.

One married couple, David and Mandy, had lost custody temporarily and told me a tale so unbelievable I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t had first-hand experience of state corruption. Their custody of their newly born baby son George was taken – including their right to make medical decisions – because they went against orthodox medical advice.

David and Mandy didn’t have a child until they reached their 40’s. Mandy had an aggressive type of arthritis that required immune modulating medication; because of this they had decided it was best not to have children. As the years ticked by and Mandy got closer to menopause, she inevitably changed her mind and they managed to conceive quickly after altering the medication.

They were free spirited people, who had previously lived in a narrow boat but bought a house on learning that Mandy was pregnant. They had specific ideas for how they wanted the birth to be and for how they wanted to raise their child. They wanted to experience natural childbirth, and because Mandy was afraid of hospitals due to previous negative experiences, they hired a midwife in the hope of having a home birth.

Home Birth Hostility

Child Protective Services Survival Manual for Parents

Unfortunately the birth didn’t go to plan and they had to be transferred to hospital for an assisted delivery. That is where their nightmare began. Staff at the hospital seemed to be contemptuous because they had planned a home birth and because they were older first time parents. Their attitude only got worse when Mandy refused a forceps delivery and told them if they wanted to use forceps she would have to be sedated first. Although they complied with the unusual request, they viewed her as an oppositional patient.

The Fallacy of Informed Consent

After the birth of a healthy 8 lbs. son, they informed staff they were refusing Hepatitis B vaccine for baby George because it was a sexually transmitted disease and they knew that Mandy didn’t have Hepatitis B. The couple had been married more than 20 years and were sexually faithful to each other and the only way that George could contract the disease as a newborn was by infection during childbirth. As his mother wasn’t infected, this was impossible.

They knew that all drugs have side-effects and decided the injection was unnecessary for George. Informed consent or refusal of medical interventions is supposed to be a cornerstone of modern medical practice, but in reality, over-reaching authorities class ‘medical neglect’ as ‘not following medical recommendations’. Hostile staff informed child protective services.

They were allowed to leave the hospital with their baby but on arrival home had CPS knocking their door down. Instead of being able to enjoy their new baby, they faced a lengthy interview about their unorthodox views and were accused of ‘not trusting’ medical professionals and putting their baby at risk by attempting a home birth, delaying forceps intervention and refusing a vaccination.

Social workers questioned whether Mandy’s arthritis would make her a suitable carer for baby George since David was at work during the day. They held an emergency meeting and court hearing and decided that George should be placed in the custody of the state until the parents ‘prove’ their suitability to be his parents. Tiny George – only a few days old – was taken by force from the arms of his distraught and begging mother.

They were only allowed to visit him in a DFS center where they would be monitored to see how they were looking after the baby (something reminiscent of George Orwell’s ‘1984’) and they had to be accompanied to all medical visits where the final say was with the state (although they didn’t force the vaccination that the parents had declined).

Eventually, when no neglect or abuse could be found and they had no ‘spurious’ reason to keep George from his parents, they were given physical custody with medical custody remaining with the state. Social workers visited their home daily and controlled most of what they did. They were prevented from using cloth diapers, as the social workers said this was ‘unhygienic’ and when Mandy made George home cooked food with a blender, she was told she had to feed him commercial baby food.

It took David and Mandy until their baby was nearly a year old to regain medical custody of him and far longer than that to repair their strained marriage.

Theirs is by no means the only case. Medical care is purported to be free to refuse, but if you say no to a proposed treatment, openly challenge a medical professional or make a choice that is a little ‘outside the box’ (for instance, home birth) you could be red flagged by social services or have your child taken away from you.

The Story of Justina Pelletier

Teenager Justina Pelletier was taken from her parents when two hospitals that were treating her, disagreed over her care. Justina, a former ice skater with Mitochondrial disease, was admitted to Boston Children’s Hospital, where a junior doctor who said that mitochondrial disease did not exist and that their daughter really had Somatoform Disorder, a mental health disorder caused by stress.

Doctors at the hospital said she’d been misdiagnosed and falsely medicated. When her parents objected and said they would seek a second opinion from another hospital, child welfare workers were called in and the family were prevented from leaving the hospital. Custody was given to the state and Justina was locked in a psychiatric ward for 16 months.

She later told journalists that medical staff there were ‘so mean and nasty’ to her, accusing her of faking her illness. She was only allowed one hour a week to visit her parents.

Since getting her back in the ensuing court battle, Justina’s parents say that ‘it was all a mad psychiatric experiment’ and accuse Boston Children’s of experimenting on their daughter without consent. Although Justina is now home, because she was denied treatment for her mitochondrial disease during her forced detainment, she is now unable to walk and is confined to a wheelchair – a tragic example of what can happen if the state get their hands on your child.

What Happens?

February 6, 2014 in biological parents, child abuse

What happens when CPS has been called by several different individuals, mainly a doctor and two non-custodial parents from both sides, and CPS does nothing.

For instance, in a case where there’s a household of children and there are custody disputes open, the custodial parent just brushes it off, denies everything, tells the CPS worker that the ex is just trying to cause trouble. The CPS caseworker believes his lies, and closes the report as found nothing.

Meanwhile, the father continues to put the children in harms way and abuses them. The father can then take those CPS reports and use them as evidence in court that he’s a good guy, even though the truth is he’s not. What happens then?

The case I just described is happening in West Monroe, Louisiana at this very moment. This type of corruption needs to stop. Just look at what they did to Jamie Mercer and her poor (killed by the custodial parents) daughter Celeste in 2011.

NV: Adoption Gone Wrong!

July 1, 2013 in Adoption, Child Protective Services, corruption, foster parents, Nevada

I received this email a couple days ago.  I think it’s great that the great uncle came forward.  I believe children should be kept in the family if at all possible.  But I’ve included her contact information, if anyone cares to contact her.

My uncle Sieb as a child in a tub in the garde...

My uncle Sieb as a child in a tub in the garden. Notice the dog in front of him. It’s 1931.

We were interested in adopting three siblings in Clark County. We went to the case worker Seidy White. She told us to meet them and make sure we were a good fit. Which we did – on several occasions.

My second visit with Seidy I received the news that she was working with a great uncle whom she wanted to adopt the children. She still allowed us visits with the children.

I am upset because I feel there has been foul play within the department because:

  • They did not allow us to go before the judge or be heard in CFT meetings.
  • When there are more parties who are interested in the children, the judge deserves to hear what the entire story and ALL the options are. Not just what they (Seidy White and Damalia Guiterrez) want.
  • They did not allow the judge to hear all accurate facts (regarding the great uncle – who is getting them in spite of his total lack of involvement their entire lives and more). They also didn’t listen to the facts that due to the children being in foster care for more than 12 months it negated the family claim of being best choice automatically – they were in foster care for 16 months with no interest from the uncle during that time. A disinterested party who cares more about when he can claim them on his tax return and tax deductions is getting them. This cannot be right!

They KNEW the uncle had not initiated one visit with the children while they were in foster care – not even when they said they would take them. Who would do this? Who in their right mind wouldn’t be trying to get to know them to make transition easier? This is NOT right.

He has had no interaction with them except twice – once initiated by Seidy – the other by the foster mom. It was for a short time both visits. They were surprised he did NOT make an effort – but it didn’t sway their opinion of them wanting him to have them.

  • They have lied to the birth mom, the foster mom and me (since they told us all conflicting stories). They clearly had two parties interested and on equal footing since the time the children were in foster care negated the family claim on them.
  • Due to the [amount] of time that the children were in foster care, the great uncle was not automatically the “best fit” as stated.
  • CPS was surprised that he didn’t initiate visits even after he said he would take them – but they are giving them to him anyway.
  • They did not allow my lawyer an opportunity to speak.
  • They coerced the birth mom into things she didn’t want.
  • They promised her help which they did not give.
  • They promised her things that they know outright the uncle has no intention of doing.

It appears that they have done what they deemed to be best interest because it’s what they wanted – not what was truly in the best interest of the children.

To have those children with their foster mom for that long (more than 16 months – which for the baby is half of his life), finally have stability and not have them remain able to see her again is like cruel punishment to the children. Any person who spent any amount of time with the  children would see that they love her and feel secure around her. To yank them away and give them to total strangers is indeed cruel in my opinion.

We would have had the foster mom be “grandma” and kept the birth mom in the picture so she could heal and the children would have access to their identity of who they are and where they came from…

Had they allowed us to be heard by the judge and he ruled that it was in the best interest of the children to go with the uncle that would have been one thing- but they didn’t.

Why am I doing this?

  • Because I know these children. I love them, they are bonded to their foster mom and should have her as part of their lives. She would adopt them but feels she is too old.
  • And… because they didn’t let the judge hear the facts and decide what was best.
  • They also ignored the knowledge that a state psychologist said the scenario of us having them with the foster mom as grandma with us as adoptive parent was the absolute best scenario.

I don’t believe the uncle wants them for more than a tax write off and the money you will give him. His lack of interaction speaks significantly louder than his words.

I don’t know where to go – but there has to be someone who actually cares that there is corruption in DES CPS and that the judges are ruling on cases they don’t have the facts for – intentionally left out by the case worker and her supervisor.

Georgia CPS Kidnap Child – No Reason Given

November 13, 2012 in California, Child Protective Services, Georgia

My family and I just moved to Georgia less than 4 months ago due to our home burning down in California. We have three children 2 of them on college and a 12-year-old handicap child.

Since moving here, we have fought the school system for her basic federal right to an education. The school has violated her FAPE fights and her IDEA rights as well as harming her to the point were they called us to come pick her up.

We took her to the hospital. I signed a paper for her to have a 72-hour evaluation at which point Child Protective Services (CPS) came and took her before without notification or reason. It took us a week to find out where our child was and what had happen. When we asked as to why they had removed our little girl, they said it was not due to neglect or abuse yet refused to give us a reason. This freaked us out, so I called the police. I actually believed she had been kidnapped.

17 Helpful Tips on how to protect your family

They were no help, as you can imagine, once they found out CPS was involved. All rights educational, medical, and financial have been removed. They refused to allow us to appear in court for her. CPS withheld the location and time of her hearing. After 2+ weeks I was finally allowed a supervised visit, my child who immediately told me she had been spanked. She had what looked like a cigarette burn on her face and a large wound on her neck (3 inches long and 1 inch wide) – both wounds were fresh.

They refused to allow me to take pictures of her wounds. The caseworker only said, “We will look into it,” regarding the spankings she is receiving while in foster care.

When she left our care her skin was fresh, clean, dry and in good shape. The school had also mistreated her allowing her to become dirty and covered in food. I had asked them many times to respect her dignity over these matters and other issues. Yet she would come home from school crying daily for being punished at school because she would ask questions regarding her work.

The main reason I am writing is to obtain help. CPS has broken many laws in regards to our handicap child she has multiple handicaps and cannot speak well, but her mind is “normal” and she knows sign language fluently.

Neither CPS nor school has provided a translator to aid in communication for her. They have also failed to provide her vitally needed medical equipment, which was on loan to the school and never returned.

I know it doubtful this email will realistically get any help or results, but I just had to get this off my chest. Our family is in fear that they will kill her or do great bodily harm, not knowing her intense medical needs.

They actually sent her home to die as an infant. We had told them we wouldn’t allow that to happen, if at all in our power. She is now 12 going on 13. She is very smart and has over come just about all her complex medical issues. She can walk, run, play, learn, sing – she loves to sing (even though most of which is unintelligible) to the common person. Her favorite band is Big Time Rush, which is age appropriate (and cute) anyway.

Shealynn is our joy, our reason for living our life. She has never been abused in any form at home. The fact that I cannot protect her now rips my heart out. A hole has been, ripped through our souls by an entity, which seems too big for us to battle, but we will give it our all – although I am doubtful of winning. I feel it in my heart, that feeling a mom gets when something’s wrong with her child, its magnified by 20,0000.
