Trouble in North Dakota

February 6, 2013 in caseworker, corruption, North Dakota

14020 PATH North Dakota Foster Care

PATH North Dakota Foster Care

Please help, we have a tyrant CPS worker here in Hettinger, ND who is harassing me and three other families.  We would all like to file a joint complaint. Where do we go? What do we do?

I am under ongoing investigation for “educational neglect” because I homeschool. My neighbor is under ongoing investigation for “educational interference,” for refusing to put her 5 year old on mind-altering ADHD medications.

There are 2 more families I have been in contact with as well.

North Dakota takes more kids into foster care than any other state — I just found that out. They were recently granted 35 million dollars from the Federal government for doing this. They are literally profiling and selling our children off to prospective parents.


All four families would like to file a complaint against the one worker. We know we cannot change the world, but the ongoing harassment is unacceptable. We know we cannot change North Dakota and two of us plan to move as soon as possible, but the other two families cannot move. If we could at least get this caseworker terminated that would help so many innocent kids from being Kidjacked and sold off to new homes.

My advice?

My best advice is contained in this post. You need to start a shit-storm for that woman and make her life miserable. You should call her EVERYDAY and calmly, plainly state what you want from her. Call your US House Rep., if your state has an ombudsman contact him. Tell everyone that will listen.

ASK them (CPS) how to file a complaint. BY LAW they have to give you the paperwork. If they refuse, make sure you indicate that within your report when you file it. That is a form in three or four parts.  Everyone, all the way up to your congressman will know there is a problem.  It can get ugly.  Make her life HELL. But do it with a smile. Have fun!

Do you have any advice for this mother?  Anyone here live in North Dakota that could offer her some guidance and some help?

Welcome to Town!

December 9, 2010 in Alabama, Child Protective Services, family rights

Just today, an agent of the state child-snatchers came to the door. She (it’s almost always a woman) started asking questions about children. I asked who and what she was. She told me that she was with the children’s services. I asked her for her business card. She said she didn’t have any.

I said I needed to see her official identification. It was clipped to her jacket. She held it out for me to see. I asked her why she was here.

She said “they” had a report that children from age 2 to 18 were seen walking around the town. I asked, “18? Aren’t they considered adults for most purposes?” She said that, yes, they were.

I said, “I see high school, middle school, and grade school children walking around town every day. Is there some problem?” (Always ask a question. If a statement has to be made, finish up with a question.) She went on that, they had a report and that she needed to see my wife and our children.

I answered that we would be “glad” to submit to an interview in the presence of our attorney.

Now, our attorney has advised us that the moment you state that you need to have your attorney present, the government officer is supposed to STOP, right there, and say nothing further but, “What is your attorney’s name and phone number?” Or, “Please have your attorney contact my office. Here’s my card.” Instead, she went on, asking why I wanted an attorney present.

I said that our attorney had advised us that none of us should ever submit to an interrogation without our attorney present. “Do you have a problem?” She said that she was not investigating us criminally, that that wasn’t her department. She went on to say that, she could have the police come.

I responded that mentioning the police showed that she was investigating us criminally and that we needed our attorney present before going any further. She at that point gave up and I followed her out to her car, where she gave me her business card.

Liar — she had just told me that she didn’t have any.

We’re being investigated because children, not even definitely any of mine, were seen walking? Walking? Come on. Can’t children walk to school, to the library, to the store? We live in town; the library and the store are only a couple of blocks away. There are sidewalks. Are they just for decoration? Pretty lame excuse if you ask me.

Editor note:  We wonder why so many children are obese. Hasn’t anyone told these people that walking is a good form of exercise?

The following Monday she came back with a plainclothes cop. My wife answered the door and stepped out, closing the door and storm door behind her (I had long ago taught her never to leave the door standing open). One of the children came and got me. The cop said the social worker said in her report that our children appeared “malnourished.”

I think these state agencies are afraid they are going to suffer funding cuts with all the revenue shortfalls. The child-snatchers have to show that their caseload is so heavy that they just cannot have their funding cut. In fact, they need more. More money. More agents.

Previously in another state we were attacked because we are “strict,” “religious” and “homeschoolers.” That goon (she looked like a man at first) went through the same garbage about me needing a lawyer, even threatening to have the police torture us into answering her questions. She later threatened to put us on the national child abuser registry.

A year later, after the state agency finally (8 months after the legal deadline) admitted that they never had any reason to investigate us, another contact was made, by sticking a pink card in the door of the house where we had been living. It bore a threat to arrest my 3-year-old son for not showing up for some hearing whether or not he received the note.

That turned out to be someone who did not even work for the office that the card came from (the child support office of the juvenile court). No one there knew anything about it; there was no case in their records.

Next, when we went to the house 18-months later, another goon (this one really looked like a man – even her voice was masculine) came and immediately began threatening us. My 16-year-old son brought out a camcorder and she skedaddled. Our attorney does say that the case has not been officially closed, so they could reopen it if they find any of us within their grasp.

Our attorney said that the legislature has granted these kidnappers virtually total immunity so that suing them rarely gets anywhere unless the abuse is particularly egregious. Like perhaps, a child is killed while in their custody.

When I was in Wichita, a couple of years ago, I recall a news item about a 16 year old girl, who remarked to a friend at public school, laughing, that her Dad had gotten irritated with her because she disobeyed him. He gave her a swat on the rear. A couple of hours later the kidnappers came and grabbed her at school.

The father wasn’t able to find out why his daughter didn’t come home from school. Days later, he was arrested and charged with assault and child abuse. Eventually the charges against him were dismissed. It took him two years of fighting with the agency and court, trying to regain custody of his daughter (by then she was 18 and they had to let her go). She had been raped in foster “care” several times, was pregnant and had a venereal disease.

I called our attorney, (which I should have done when she first came as my cell phone was in my pocket) but could not get to him. His secretary took a message.

On Saturday, we received two letters, one certified and one ordinary. My wife, without consulting me, signed the certified receipt. I would have called our attorney before accepting either letter.

I scanned both in and e-mailed them to our attorney.

At about 2 pm Monday, a plainclothes police officer came to our door. My wife answered and went outside. She sent one of the children to tell me that “someone” was at the door. I went and she was talking to him. He said that the social worker had told him that we didn’t show up for the meeting at 1 pm. I hadn’t opened either letter pending instructions from our attorney.

He said the social worker said we were reported because our children appeared to be “malnourished.” Either the social worker lied about the whole thing or some busybody gave a false report to FCS. Our children are all well within the “normal” range of weight to height given on a number of children’s health websites. Several are above average weight for their height.

I said we had been advised by our attorney not to answer any questions or give any information without consulting with him. I called his office and was patched through to his cell phone. He asked if I had any problem with letting the social worker see the children.

I said I would follow his advice, that I have no problem with letting them be seen if he so advised me. He said that if I didn’t let them see the children that the social worker would get a warrant and get into our house, where she might see any of many things she might use against us.

I told the attorney that our children walk all over town. They go to the library, a nearby restaurant, to church, they play in the back yard (which is visible from a side street across a vacant lot), to Wal-mart and the Piggly-Wiggly. As well as Fred’s, Dollar General, Family Dollar, and go for walks with their mother. The entire neighborhood is familiar with our children, so anyone could see them if they were around the area.

 He then advised me to bring the children outside so the social worker could see them.

It was chilly (50s), so to avoid “frightening” the Alabaman social worker, who was dressed like she was going to the Arctic, we got the children all coated, mittened and mufflered up. We have spent winters in north Idaho (7′-12′ snow), Montana, North Dakota and South Dakota (where I walked to and from work in -36o –40o weather), where it was hard to get them to wear shoes out in the snow. I filed them out in birth order.

The social worker started asking names and birth dates. She wanted to know about a bruise on our youngest daughter’s eye (our youngest son had dropped a cup on her) and our youngest son’s eyelids (he has congenital ptosis (drooping) of the eyelids, inherited from my father, my grandfather, my great-grandfather, and me). My wife told her about it (the social worker didn’t know what ptosis means), that he had been seen by a pediatric ophthalmic plastic surgeon and we were advised that nothing should be done until he was 3-4 years old, as he was able to open his eyes, though not widely without raising his eyebrows.

The social worker was scribbling in her pad. She probably had a recorder hidden on her. The pad scribbling is a cover for illegally recording without informing you that you are actually being recorded. Otherwise, how could anyone remember a conversation among four people THAT accurately?

I suspect that she’ll use the girl’s bruise as an excuse to come back. Then the boy’s ptosis as an excuse for continuing “follow-up” visits.

The social worker is obese, so perhaps she thinks anyone who isn’t wider than they are tall is starved?

She comes to the public library on occasion. Several of our children walk to the public library, which is 3 blocks from our home on the same side street (which has sidewalks) we live on. One said he had seen her car parked in the staff area of the library, so it is likely that she has seen most or all of our children at one time or another.

We cooperated only to the extent our attorney advised. His main interest is to get the social worker away from the house. He has  (in another state) advised us to GET AWAY before the social worker came back. He commended us for having done just that the first time, we were approached by a social worker, who threatened to have us and our oldest son tortured by the police until we “consented” to submit to an interrogation (which they call an “interview”).

CPS is the devil himself!

May 22, 2010 in Child Protective Services, Colorado, corruption

Denver, Colorado Division of Child Welfare (CPS) has been in our lives for two years now because of a pediatrician turning us in for homeschooling. Since then, our child, who has Autism and is non-verbal, has been court ordered to attend public school. He went to school all last year and we have jumped through all of their hoops for two long years now.

This year our boy has missed a lot of school due to illness, sleeping issues and lack of communication and cooperation from his school. The social worker who is totally unknowledgeable about Autism and all the behavioral, health, and sensory issues that go along with it, thinks we are just keeping him out of school on purpose even though we explained to her why he misses school. We even take him to the doctor when he’s sick and we get excuses. 

Now, just recently, he has been court ordered to go to school no matter what, unless he is excused by a doctor, or else be taken away from us, his loving parents. Well, the day he was to go back to school after that court hearing, he came down with the croup; we kept him home and took him to the doctor’s. We got an excuse also. He stayed out of school a few more days because he was very sick, and he has a very low immune system on top of it, which makes it harder to get over illnesses. 

When he finally went back to school after being sick, he was not completely well, we dropped him off with a professional therapist who is court ordered to help see him off to school from our home. 

When the Para professionals, teacher’s aides, brought him to the car after school, he got into the car and as we were driving off, we noticed a rip in his pants in the crotch area. We did not know how big the rip was until we got home and changed his underwear. The rip was a 6-inch gaping hole in the entire crotch area that was initially cut then torn by, we believe, someone at the school. There was no way our child did that himself and there was no playground equipment there, there is no explanation for it. 

When we saw that, we immediately called the classroom to ask the teacher what happened. NO answer after we left three messages asking her to return our call. So, I emailed the superintendent and told them about it. I said I wanted to know what happened to the pants. 

Again, no answer. I called my advocate to ask what we should do but could only leave her a message. She apparently got my message but instead of calling me back, she called social services. The next day social services called and wanted to get the police involved. We did not want to do that just yet but we had no choice at that point. 

Our child was examined by the crisis center’s doctor and everything was documented with pictures taken of some bruises on his thighs as well. He had to miss school that day too. We kept him home for two days after the incident because we were very worried about what happened and not having any explanation or answers made our anxiety levels go through the roof. 

Little did we know that our caseworker would come over to our home to blame us for the incident and accuse us of causing it ourselves just so we could keep our son out of school. She believed the school when they eventually said that we sent him to school that way. We have a witness that he did not arrive to school that way but she did not care what we had to say about it. 

Now her and the Guardian Ad Litem for our son is requesting removal of him and are asking for custody because she claims that we have made this whole thing up to avoid sending him to school, even though we have since sent him back even during this investigation that’s going on because of the pants incident. All the while, being worried sick and having lots of feedback from rational people/parents of special needs children telling us that we did the right thing to tell someone and we should be demanding answers and keeping him out until we get them. 

Our caseworker is claiming we are using this as just another issue with that school and an excuse to not send him. She is also saying that we are mentally unstable using this school incident as an excuse to keep him at home. 

We are not even keeping him home from school, because of their constant threats. We have even just added additional speech and OT therapies to his agenda outside of the school setting and he is going to summer school. She has been on case for two years now and we sent him to school all last year. He has always gotten services throughout his life since his diagnosis such as speech, OT, feeding clinic, Day Treatment at the Children’s Hospital for his sleep and feeding issues. None of anything we do or have done matters to this rotten evil caseworker and GAL.

This Guardian Ad Litem, who is totally new to our case, is stating she believes that we are incapable of getting him the services that he needs. She doesn’t even know who we are.  But we have been all these years. She is crazy. She is just making up things that make no sense whatsoever just to go along with the caseworker. 

This is a travesty. 

I want the whole world to know how evil CPS and social services is. They will stop at nothing and use ANY made up excuse possible to completely destroy children, their families and lives period. 

Not only that, but they get big fat bonuses (thousands of dollars) to take special needs children away. 

This is as outrageous as anything can ever get.

November 2, 2006 in Michigan

Maureen Whittmann reports that Michigan Candidate, Mark Meadows vows to restrict homeschooling for Michigan residence.

Former East Lansing Mayor Mark Meadows is predicted to win in his bid for the 69th District House seat. His opponent, John Knowles is rock solid pro-life, pro-family, and, yes, pro-homeschooling.

Maureen adds, “The election is only six days away. A win by Mark Meadows could translate into the loss of freedoms by homeschoolers. Michigan used to be THE most difficult state in which to homeschool. A lot of people worked hard and sacrificed so that people like me could educate my children in the way that I, as their parent, know is best for them. Let’s not turn back the clock.”
