We would like to report and warn any individual in the Franklin County area to watch your children as CPS in this area is extremely corrupt and the local J&DR court works right along with them to unlawfully and unconstitutionally seize and detain children in order to secure and maximize Title IV funding under the Social Security Act on behalf of the children they seize. We had an incident where we made a 911 complaint in reference to a neighbor. A week later the neighbor phoned in a anonymous call which caused a cps worker, Cathren Brittain, a sheriffs detective, Brian Webb, a Sgt Holland, deputy Mayo, and other deputies to come to our private home.
In a three hour ordeal the cps worker and sheriffs officers forced entrance into our home .Our home was searched by the cps worker and deputies while the detective removed all our children to the outside of our home and interrogated them in the hot sun for over an hour, while the children complained of the heat. The than seized only three of the four children into unmarked vehicles and drove away. We arrived home as deputies and cps worker shuffled them into the car. We were threatened by detective Webb accompanied by Cathren Brittain and Sgt Holland with arrest if we approached our own home. So ... the children were gone. We sat there with no clue as to why the children were taken. Our responsible adult son whose care the children were in on this day explained to us what had transpired and informed us that he had recorded the incident. Our son also informed us that he had called 911 two or three times to find out why the deputies where trying to break our door down. Detective Webb had stated that the Commonwealth Attorney gave him permission to kick the door down. We have this statement made by det. Brian Webb digitally recorded.
Our adult daughter and other family members, all of good standing, one even being formally employed by the sheriffs office requested kinship care on the day of the unconstitutional seizure. CPS refused them kinship care until one week before the cases all dismissed "unfounded". Our children returned to our custody and we immediately moved over a hour away. The J&DR Judge Rice dragged the cases on for months and months attempting to coerce and threaten us to surrender of our children. One child was already promised for adoption. We refused cps unneeded service plans over and over , we refused to cooperate with cps harming of our children for profit, since everything was based on the vague anonymous retaliation call cps could not make a case against us . It was insane!! You can not take children away from fit parents because your county needs to generate some funds. Why would you want to do this to a family ? The reason is the financial incentives. Our children are merchandise! By seizing our children funds rolls in for foster care, guardian ad litems, foster custodians, prevention workers, attorneys, even the J&DR courts. These funds come from our taxes. They are extorted by cps under Title IV of the Social Security Act.
In our cases and many cases we have investigated cps is not entitle to receive any government funds since they never meet the criteria and provisions layed out within the ACT pertaining to exigent circumstances, preventing removal, or kinship care. Under Federal law if this criteria of the ACT is not met upon removal of the children.. government funds can never issue to cps on behalf of the children seized throughout the entire foster incident. We know cps in Franklin County makes no attempt at all to investigate or validate any anonymous call . This means that any person may call Franklin County cps anonymously and use cps as a tool to intentionally harm and seek revenge upon others. Our cases dragged on and on even though they were dismissed "unfounded" If cps can threaten or coerce you to sign their service plan, they then can list your child as a future foster care candidate and extort those government funds for a long time while ruining your life and traumatizing your child permanently. This is what they attempted to do to us. They have extorted government funds already. They need to have an independent audit of cps. If you have children you may want to stay out of this county. CPS will also target you if your poor as they know this prevents you from hiring a court reporter at $200-$400 or your own attorney who is not beholden to cps. The J&DR court of no record is in total violation of all law and the Constitution since you are no afforded due process rights and everything is done in secret. Poor people do not have the financial means to fight CPS. The Judge in the J&DR court in Rocky mount formally worked for cps in the very court she now presides. The judge is very good friends with the current cps attorney as well as other officials. The judge is very biased and prejudiced. This is not uncommon.
This agency has gone unchecked for so long, it answers to no one and is unlawful, unconstitutional and is extremely dangerous to our children. Child abuse is criminal and needs to be investigated by the police and child abusers should be tried in a Constitutional court of record. Criminals are even afforded due process. The outcome of our cases although unfounded .... Judge Rice ordered the entire family separated by issuing protective orders against all the children( who are very young) from living together. thus separating parents who have been together for thirty years and raised 12 children already. Judge Rice entered into the record a fictional person as the petitioner of the protective orders, as the judge herself is actually the petitioner in violation of her judicial mandate. If she did not list a petitioner of the protective orders and no one requested custody of the children she would have no jurisdiction to define custody within the realm of protective orders or to separate the entire family. Judge Rice was completely without Jurisdiction to define where we should reside. She is therefore corrupt and Nonjudicial. This is why she listed a fake petitioner.She was without any jurisdiction to order the family separated permanently, since this was a final order. We are still being harassed by Cathren Brittain and other cps officials.
So...Now we proceed to sue them in Federal Court to end it for good. We may very well sue the Judge for relief as well. We may be able to remove her immunity for her acts in violation of Judicial Canons, Federal and State Health and Welfare law. Very, very Corrupt County. They just got out of the news and should be right back in it shortly. God Bless our Children and the parents who love them.
