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.

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.

Jury found man Innocent: Financial Ruin

September 9, 2011 in False Allegations, justice, lawsuit, Michigan

My friend called me today, she is having the best day she has had in over two years because today her husband was finally found not guilty in a criminal trial by his a jury of his peers.

Fortunately, my friend has a strong marriage and a strong support system. It’s a good thing too because the courts have put her and her husband through the wringer.

Her husband was falsely accused of sexual molestation of his grandchild and her older siblings. Oakland County, Michigan prosecutors decided to file charges a second time, when the jury was unable to return a verdict in the first trial. So, they were forced to start all over again and prepare for a second trial.

My friend has a heart of gold and has been there for these children and their mother, providing babysitting assistance, groceries, transportation and anything else that was needed. It breaks my heart to know what she has endured as a thank you for her kindness.

During the second trial, one of the children claimed she was molested everytime she visited their house. One of the other children admitted that she had lied on the stand during the first trial. The mother was caught in several lies. After the second trial, the jury explained that the expert witness was what had convinced them. Well, for $25,000 — I would hope so.

Who has that kind of money to spend? Fortunately, this couple were able to come up with the resources to fight these false allegations, but what if they didnt?

In the end, it doesn’t matter one bit that the allegations were nothing more than lies and that this generous, loving couple is out more than $100,000 in court expenses, lawyer fees, expert witness expenses, etc… They can’t claim any of the expense on their income taxes, they can’t sue the mother, she lives on welfare benefits, the children are in foster care. The lawyer says they can’t sue the state to recoop the damages. The state is exempt from prosecution. They are just out the money and fortunate to still have a home to live in.

These false allegations cost her over $25,000 from her personal business – who wants to do business with a child molester? Where does a family go for relief? There is something very wrong with a court system that doesn’t provide any relief for people who have been wrongly accused. How can anyone expect justice?

New Dad Neglectful…

June 25, 2011 in neglect, parent-child relationship

Domino tiles

My husband is a wonderful man, he is very dear to me, as such I left my man bashing days behind me long ago. I honestly believe that men and woman both have their roll to play in the marriage and when everyone works together, it leads to a more harmonious relationship.

However, I just can’t let this one slide. I like to unwind with a few games of online dominoes, it can be stressful as well but in a different way. I was playing this evening and what I assume was a young man came to my table to play, things were going well, when he said he would be right back, I was glad because I needed to make a pit stop as well. We came back to the table pretty close to the same time.

He played his bone and I took my next turn. Suddenly, he types, “My wife is in labor. Can we cancel?”

I couldn’t believe it. I immediately closed out the game.

What kind of man sits at a table online, playing dominoes with a stranger, while his wife is in labor? Then to add insult to injury this nut job cares more about his rung than he does his wife having his child. (Note: Players start at rung 1500 and move up or down the rung, depending on whether or not they win or lose and the rung of their opponent. If you leave an unfinished game, you forfeit.)

I’d like to give him a V-8 moment but not so gently.

I’m sorry but if he was my husband, I would have strung him up. While I’ve never personally given birth, I’ve been to plenty of births in my life. Most of the time the husband or lover is there and pretty attentive when they need to be. I mean come on, he helped make that child, maybe he can’t experience the pain but he can share in the experience and help ease the infants way into this world.

Let’s face it. We all know that if mama ain’t happy no one is.

This guy needs to pull his head out of his behind and get a clue. Life isn’t always convenient and your baby and wife had better be more important than any dumb old domino game — or football game, or basketball game, or concert, or pool hall, or…  You get the picture.

I’d like to wish everyone a happy 4th of July. Keep praying for the families who have been torn apart.

Good News for Reform?

June 5, 2008 in CPS, family court

Pacific Justice Institute issued a press release yesterday regarding a recent California Supreme Court ruling, which could have an unintended result…

Good News for Reform Movement?

California Supreme Court Denies Rehearing and Stay of Gay Marriages

San Francisco, CA – The California Supreme Court today denied requests to stay its gay marriage ruling until the November election. The Court also denied requests to rehear the case.  The Court’s ruling makes clear that its previous ruling will become final at 5:00 p.m. on June 16. Gay couples will then be able to legally marry.

Brad Dacus, president of Pacific Justice Institute, had the following reaction, "The stakes are now even higher for the Protect Marriage Initiative in November. To date, the California Supreme Court has refused to respect the will of the people. In November, the people will have an opportunity to respond."

Just days ago, California’s Secretary of State confirmed that the Protect Marriage Initiative will appear on the November ballot. The initiative language is identical to the traditional marriage definition of Prop. 22, which was struck down by the state Supreme Court; however, this time the initiative is a state constitutional amendment, which would be much more difficult for the Court to overturn.

In light of the Court’s rulings, Pacific Justice Institute is communicating with pastors and churches throughout California to mobilize support for the Protect Marriage Initiative and to ensure that churches are legally protected as they continue to promote Biblical marriage.

Telephone: (916) 857-6900.

While I’m not an advocate of so-called "Gay Marriage", this recent ruling could have the unintended effect of providing a boost in the arm to the CPS reform movement.

The problem faced today by most parents who find themselves up against the CPS behemoth is a lack of money. Federal statistics claim that same sex couples have much higher income levels on average than do heterosexual couples with children.

Once homosexual couples find themselves facing the family courts in significant numbers, we could reach the tipping point that finally turns the tables in favor of the parents and children. It’s simply an added bonus that courts today are loath to appear to discriminate against these unnatural unions.

In an article published on Mens News Daily, Jim Untershine had this to say…

Successful breadwinners of a same-sex household will be targeted by officers of the Family Court when their dependent partner is now forced to file for divorce. Instead of moving on with their lives, or amicably separating with conditions, the Family Court will now force the financial disclosure from both and attempt to establish a cash flow between them that is unfair enough to entice further litigation.

One must wonder just how successful the states policy of Kidjacking children will be against parents who actually have the money to mount a proper defense and hire the experts needed to turn the tables on CPS caseworkers and judges who have operated unchecked for many years now. Only time will tell!
