CPS, School and the Law

September 4, 2013 in Child Protective Services, corruption, foster care

After Child Protective Services kidnapped my daughter, they tried to enroll her into a high school. In spite of the fact that a diploma had been issued acknowledging the fact she graduated from a home school. I was told directly “We are above the Department of Education.”

We have a baby...for awhile at least

We have a baby…for awhile at least!

State laws say a child under the age of 16 (up to the 16th birthday) must attend school, with the following exceptions:

(e) The child has graduated from high school or has fulfilled all requirements for high school graduation.

Even though the Governor, State Legislature, Michigan Department of Education all recognize a home school diploma, CPS claims they do not. Even though my daughter was 16, CPS does not have to follow the law. CPS is very knowledgeable of school laws in Michigan. Home schools are not required to register the school or student with any governmental agency. Home schools do not have to conduct standardized tests. Home schools do not have to report student progress to any governmental agency.

CPS asked under what certified educational program was she taught. I told them I was the certified agency. They refused to believe me and also refused to call the Department of Education!  At age 16, my daughter legally was not required to attend a school because of age and because of having graduated! But CPS is to arrogant to believe a parent whose child they had just illegally abducted!

In fact, any law that CPS wants to break, they are allowed to inject their personal opinions above what state and federal laws say. As I have said before, CPS has told me directly “When CPS is involved, parents and children have no Civil or Constitutional Rights. We are above the Constitution!

Liberty Counsel Files Brief in Alabama Supreme Court

March 30, 2012 in Alabama

Liberty Counsel Files Brief in Alabama Supreme Court in Defense of Pre-Born Life

Supreme Court
Supreme Court

Montgomery, AL – Liberty Counsel filed an Amicus Curiae Brief in the Alabama Supreme Court in the case of Ankrom v. State of Alabama.

The case involves the consolidation of two cases, which address the question of whether Alabama’s law against chemical endangerment of children can be applied to unborn children who are exposed to illegal drugs in utero. Courts of appeal in Alabama upheld convictions of mothers who were charged under the chemical endangerment law, when their children tested positive for illegal drugs at birth.

Liberty Counsel’s brief provides the Alabama Supreme Court with a thorough historical review of legal protection for unborn children, dating from ancient Greece to the present day. Common law in England and the United States, with support from the medical and legal professions, recognized that “[l]ife is the immediate gift of God, a right inherent in every individual; and it begins in contemplation of law as soon as an infant is able to stir in the mother’s womb.”

This understanding remained the prevailing view in the United States through the middle of the 20th Century, when a societal shift prompted a “liberalization” of criminal laws, including restrictions against abortion, culminating in the abortion cases, Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, (1973) and Doe v. Bolton, 410 U.S. 179 (1973), in which the Supreme Court held that unborn children are not “persons” protected by the right to life set forth in the Constitution.

Advances in medical science have established the truth of the historic view of the unborn child as a human being, not merely a “potential” human being. Liberty Counsel’s brief encourages the Alabama Supreme Court to return to that valuation of unborn children.

Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, said, “Our brief convincingly shows that the U.S. Supreme Court’s abortion cases are out of step with history, law, and science regarding the humanity of unborn children. In personal injury, criminal, and wills and estate law, the trend has been to recognize the unborn child as a human with legal protections. The U.S. Supreme Court’s abortion cases are an aberration to law and stand on an island by themselves, and that island will one day disappear.”

It’s child abuse…

December 21, 2011 in child abuse, Child Protective Services, corruption, lawsuit, Michigan

Ellen DeGeneres
Ellen DeGeneres

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.

2008 Reflections

January 1, 2009 in California, DHHS, family rights

Little Princess

As I sit here at 11:38 p.m. on New Year’s Eve and I think about the work we’ve done over the year and how much has not been accomplished. We must take solace in and rejoice in the small victories that have been waged and won by parents just like you and I.

Each child returned home to a loving, caring family is a victory — a major victory in the war against families. I’d call it the war on the children but it’s so much more than that — it hits grandparents hard, aunts and uncles, day care providers, friends and neighbors; each child affects so many lives around them…

We can grieve this year over the many children who have been lost to heaven in this all out war on the family. As I contemplated these thoughts, it occurred to me.

Maybe we were going about this all wrong? I’ve had many social workers contact me over the years; they want to speak out against the injustice and the harm being perpetrated on “generation lost.” We have an entire generation of children who have at time or another been separated forever from the lives they should have lived.

I spent the past several weeks watching the Little House on the Prairie series. Wow, people’s lives were so hard and yet so easy back then. Yes, it was just a television show with made up events but the stories in the books were about real people; People who really lived.

We need to create information for social workers or provide a resource page where they can get facts. I’ve worked around enough government agencies over the years to know that they have a tendency to take liberties with the law. The California Department of Education (CDE) was caught red handed putting information up on their website that they (and their attorneys) knew to be erroneous.

To their credit, when details of the posted, mis-information were brought to their attention, it was replaced with factual legal details in a relatively prompt manner. You can’t blame them for bending the laws a little, especially when they know that no one will bother to call them on it.

If we can convince enough social workers to quit or to do their jobs properly, we can tip the scales in our favor. What we need are some industrious college students to conduct a few much needed studies or to at least form a congressional committee to look into the abuse. So far, too little has been done and the work is long overdue.

I’ll bet things would change quickly at the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) if someone were to create an online database searchable by county, state and zip code that lists social workers by name and details their offenses. Caseworkers, who stoop to under-handed and illegal methods, need to be called out.

The list could serve as a network database for family rights organizations. Protection workers who fail to document and provide adequate documentation of a proper investigation should be charged with dereliction of duties and dismissed post-haste. Any who attempts to keep a child in state custody unlawfully and in blatant violation against human rights protections must be prosecuted to the fullest extend of the law.

School Makes Me Sick!

October 9, 2008 in Arkansas, caseworker, DHS

Truancy in Arkansas

I have to tell you my case about horrible injustice, abuse, and discrimination, constitutional and civil rights violation being committed against my son and me by juvenile court in Arkansas.

I fear my son is in danger of being legally kidnapped by a corrupt juvenile court over immoral laws for truancy and sick days. The corruption includes fraud, abuse, and the legal kidnapping of children from loving parents. Please help! Our case went from truancy, to sick days, to forced therapy, to contempt then an accusation of neglect. My son and I desperately need your help and I pray you can help us.

This case is not about my son and me accused of abuse, drugs, alcohol, neglect or any past criminal record. We are innocent!

Here’s the story

My youngest son was bullied in the fall of 2006 by a new, first time third grade teacher and again by the principal who has never liked us. Sadly, the nuns left in 2002 and the school never recovered but I stayed out of loyalty since my family had gone there for over 40-years.

It once was a loving, wonderful, private, Catholic school. This principal was always cold and unfriendly towards us not acting at all like a Christian and he didn’t mind showing his hatred for us and the teacher acted the same.

My son was sent to the office everyday for behavior problems such as being the class clown. He usually got sent home or I would check him out so the principal wouldn’t torture him.

Child Bullied by School Officials

I believe the constant bullying by this principal and teacher made my son sick emotionally and physically. My son complained of headaches, stomach pains, nausea, sleep problems, often vomiting in the mornings, and sudden crying episodes.

Then, he made several suicidal comments about going back to school so I changed him to another school quietly; where he made the A & B honor roll and graduated to 4th grade. We were not the only family who changed schools because of this principal.

I know the principal was angry that we changed schools so he filed a truancy complaint at the prosecuting attorney’s office for my son’s absents even though we no longer went to that school. I tried to explain all this to the judge but all she cared about was the sick days missed, not the trauma and abuse my son had suffered from these adult bullies.

Juvenile Court

And our nightmare had just begun: We have been dragged through the juvenile court treated like criminals for almost 2 years now; more missed days of school for court, caseworkers monitoring us, doctor visits, appointments with the already biased, court-appointed psychologist, and threats of DHS taking my son because of sick days.

We had court for the fifth time on June 27th hoping to close the case but instead the judge threatens to throw me in the county jail after a court employee lies on the witness stand claiming I refused to get counseling and complains that my son missed 32.5 days of the school year.

I found out later that the lying employee was my son’s parole officer who has never met us or never talks to us. I found out later that she was supposed to have set up the free counseling for my son and me after the last hearing in January. She clearly didn’t do her job so she shifted the blame on me because one week after this hearing, I received an appointment with a social worker at United Family Services set up by this lying parole officer.

This seems kind of hypocritical for us to get counseling from a social worker at UFS since my son and I were evaluated there 2-years-ago by a social worker; but the judge did not value her opinion. The social worker that talked to us then felt that I had made the right decision in changing schools and my son had adjusted well with no lasting trauma caused by the bullying; so she recommended closing the case.

Traumatized by the court

Of course now the court is traumatizing my son. I tried to defend my son for the 32-½ absents telling her that 8 of those days were court related, which we were told was excused; but the judge slammed her gavel down in a rage threatening to throw me in jail and put my son in foster care which terrified my son.

The threat of foster care

She is ordering DHS again to reopen the case and monitor us again. My son and I haven’t committed any crime. The court resembles Hitler and his Nazis; and my son and I are the innocent but condemned Jews. They torture us by scaring my son with threats of foster care; and me with threats of throwing me in jail and taking my son with no charge of any crime.

We had court today September 25th for the sixth time and I was falsely accused of contempt of court. The judge didn’t like that I had gone to two extra therapists for their opinion and help in addition to the counseling at UFS.

I tried to explain to her that I was showing the court that I am cooperating and never refused therapy even paying $200 to one therapist but the judge hated me for this effort claiming that my thinking was messed up.

The court appointed defense lawyer who never talks to me and has never defended my son or me because she usually just sits there, got up and said she thinks that I am neglecting my son now since I have a job. Before I was discriminated against and treated like scum because I wasn’t working and now I am accused of neglect because I am working again.

My son told me later that the defense attorney told him that she didn’t like me stating to him "I don’t like your mom." I know it upset him and I don’t want her near my son again.

It was so horrible and sickening how corrupt and evil this court is and they’re getting away with it. My son and I are ordered to go to therapy every week till we go back to court in January or the judge will take my son from me for a 72 hour hold if she finds me in contempt of these court orders which she will unlawfully and get away with it.

I believe this court is so evil that they are deliberately making sure my son and I can’t get therapy this week so they can kidnap him. They will make it look like I am not following orders even though I have called asking for help.

No where to hide

I have been advised to go into hiding immediately to protect my son from being kidnapped and there is reason to believe an order for his kidnapping will be enforced any day while he is at school which has me terrified to send him to school; but he can’t miss school because we’ll be in trouble for sick days.

I had to take my son to the doctor on October 7th and he was put on an anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications. My son and I are so stressed by the horrible abuse from this court that it is making him sick. Help us!

At first, this case was about bullies, then it was about my son missing sick days and now they have twisted the case as if I am neglecting him. It keeps getting worse. Please! Someone Help Us!

We are being treated so unfair. I am really scared and confused because I have always believed being a loving, devoted mom, a good-hearted Christian and a law-abiding citizen that I would never be treated like a criminal. I was so wrong – there is no justice in America.

My son was only 9 years old when we first went to court, which means he wasn’t even old enough for juvenile court in Arkansas. We are being crucified for a truancy complaint from a school we no longer attended and sick days.

Civil Rights Violations

We haven’t committed any crimes. Don’t I have the right to keep my child home when he is sick? Aren’t we protected by the 8th Amendment? 1st Amendment? 4th, 5th, 6th and 14th Amendments also? Please help!

Don’t my son and I have civil rights? What about our Miranda rights? Aren’t we protected by the Constitution? Why am I in trouble for saving my son from those bullies by changing schools? Didn’t the Supreme Court give parents the right to choose the best education for their children?

Don’t I have the right to protect my child from bullies? Don’t I have the right to protect my child from possible corruption in juvenile court? Isn’t it my responsibility to keep him safe from harm or danger? I pray for your help.

Please email me if you can help or know someone who could help. Thank you and God bless you!
