In Dec 2002, The father of three young children, became angry with the unappriciative attitude of the eldest boy (8),with the amount of Christmas gifts he received. The boy went upstairs after being called back and ignoring his father, father proceeded to go upstairs and spanked the boy, the boy put his hands behind his back, and the father hit his hand instead. Mother came upstairs to hear son screaming, and father raring back to spank child again, and came between child and father, told father she wanted him to leave the situation and she looked over the boy. The boy had a swollen elbow, and mother did not know the severity of situation, so called for an ambulance. When medics arrived, they inquired as to how this happened and called CPS. Report was filed agianst father on the word of the child, (he was beaten).

CPS arrived and said that the situation was not condoned and that she would insist on parenting classes, (father finished these)and mandatory drug counseling, (father was a methanphetamin user), father did not finish this.
When agent returned to home and did update on family, CPS agent releaved the family of any further actions. (knowing father had not finished drug assesment)

In Feb 2003 Mother went to CPS to report that husband was yelling and potentially violent and that she wanted to have help for placement in permenant housing. CPs agent acted as if the situation was not as severe as mother had stated and took a report, she instructed the mother to go to a "Safe House", mother asked if she could stay with a neighbor, due to a safe house not being large enough for there children and mother, agent said yes but to cancel "Safe House reservation". Mother did cancel and stayed with neighbor.

The following school day the children were visited by the same CPS agent that first came out in DEC. At this point the school age children were removed from the custody of parents and placed in protective custody, and mother was called to bring in small child as well.
Mother turned over small child with hesitation as to what would be happening, and was not answered with any information.

The following day Mother and Father were ordered to appear in family court, there they were returned the children and were told that they did not seem to he in harm by parents, and were ordered to return for a hearing in one month.

Hearing day, and parents were approached by agent and offered a deal to plead guilty to Abuse/Neglect charges and they would have to attend classes, and counseling, parents did not believe they were guilty of Abuse/Neglect and told agent they would not plead to it, she became visibly frustrated and said "FINE SEE YOU IN COURT".
During the time before court parents tried desparately to find an attorney and could not find one that would be able to accept payment for representation, or would not defend at all, said they were there for the children not the parents.

Needless to say parents had to defend themselves in court, not a good choice, but a forced one.
The parents questioned the agent and the agent denied all of the statements she was to of supposedly made to the parents over the past month and stated falsehoods in reguards to the living arrangements of the family, the neighbor that the mother stayed with was also in court and stated what they knew. The judge made remarks such as "if you ask the wittness if you love your children the wittness will be dismissed, we know you love your children, the question is that of abuse/neglect."
The mother questioned the wittness and rested, the DA questioned the wittness and rested, the judge did as well. The wittness was excused and the judge told the court that he did not believe the wittness and that the children would remain in the care of the parents but were considered wards of the court.

After the hearing, in the lobby the agent came out and stated, better luck next time and proceeded to instruct the parents as to what they were to do in the months to follow.
The mother asked if she was to leave the father, (as she was told she could do the day before the hearing) would this help in her situation. The agent stated "if you leave now we will take the children and you will have to fight for them in family court all over again". At this the Mother was visibly upset, she did want to leave and was not aided in this before, now she was being forced to stay with a man who was clearly abusive, verbally if not physically.

Now during the 6 months between the court hearing and the secondary hearing husband has become even more violent, but Wife can not leave due to statement of the CPS agent.
The agent that was on the case thru-out was now removed from the case and a new assigned, noone has been to the home in 5 months to do the inspection nor have the parents been contacted by CPS.

Three weeks before final hearing the CPS has contacted the parents via letter, to say that they have not contacted CPS and that the phone number that they have is incorrect. The number that they had was never the number of the parents, and the names were spelled incorrectly on the letter as well as the judgement of the first hearing, these were corrected both twice and the mother has made numerous attempts to contact CPS and leaving voice mails each attempt. The new agent now is telling the parents that they are not going to get the case settled this hearing that it will be extended another six months and that because they did not finish their counseling that they now will have to finish it or this will not ever get settled. The mother could not finish the counseling due to financial problems (lay offs) costs per session would be $100, and the father's attempt to restrict the wife form going. He has become excessively aggressive, the police have been called and she is stuck due to statement of prior agent.

The CPS needs reform and parents need the right to speak out and be listened to, with out fear of retrobution, or the threat of their children being taken. The neighbor tried to make a statement to the CPS agent and was told she needed to take care of her children as well. The intended threat was received, their children would be at risk if the neighbor said anything.

The agents need to stop lying, and the judges, agents, and counselers are all in this together, they receive money when a child is removed and this is sickening.

Legislative Changes Needed ..DHS's CPS IS DESTROYING AMERICA and the freedoms our fellow Americans have fought to defend!

AUTHOR: Li - (U.S.A.)

As indicated in the above report, CPS is too powerful over children and families! DHS is forcing their ideas of what they feel is 'correct' parenting on every family and every little child! YET, review the reports submitted by DHS 'caregivers' as they 'care' for children taken into custody!

DHS's CPS IS DESTROYING AMERICA and the freedoms our fellow Americans have fought to defend! These same children that DHS's CPS is intentionally destroying will, as they grow into adulthood, will serve our country to protect our freedoms. WHERE IS PROTECTION NOW WHEN MANY OF THESE CHILDREN NEED TO BE PROTECTED FROM DHSs CPS?

PARENTS NEED HELP! CHILDREN NEED HELP! THE DOORS OF DHS's CPS NEEDS TO BE CLOSED ACROSS THE NATION UNTIL ADMINISTRATORS CAN LEARN HOW TO HELP PARENTS AND CHILDREN! ADMINISTRATORS KNOW HOW TO RAKE IN FINANCIAL REWARDS AND BONUSES! MANY OF THEIR REPORTS CONTAIN FRAUDULENT INFORMATION AND FICTITIOUS WITNESSES! THE TRUTH NEEDS TO BE OUT OF THE BAG SO LEGISLATORS CAN STOP THE ABUSIVE ACTIVITIES OF THE ORGANIZATION!

FORCE DHS EMPLOYEES AND THEIR CONTRACTORS TO TELL VERIFIABLE TRUTHS IN ALL SITUATIONS! ETHICS SHOULD NOT BE A COVER-UP FOR THE ABUSIVE SYSTEM.

PLEASE STOP REWARDING DHS FOR WHAT THEY DO TO DESTROY LITTLE CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES!

State Legislators need to review the Adoptions and Safe Families Act of 1997. They should be able to determine that the ASFA is promoting family destruction and child abuse and neglect. The ASFA is rewarding DHS financially for their destructive efforts.

READ THE SUBSEQUENT STATE REPORTS RELATING TO THE APPLICATION OF THE ASFA! Independent contractors need to search for the truth in the DHS devised reports! Their reports are solely directed toward increasing their finances. What other reason would there be to advertise for more and more foster homes? Why are there so many thousand little children on the internet as DHS adoptive children? IT'S FOR FINANCIAL REWARDS AND BONUSES/

The ASFA needs to be retracted to salvage little children from the destructive efforts of DHS and their contractor's fraudulent reports. Contractor's sole interest is in retaining the children in foster homes for their own financial gain, again through the rewards and bonuses provided by the ASFA. If the DHS contractors were in the business to support the children and their families, they would not have such great financial gains. It's all about money!

DHS employees need to be forced to be truthful in their reports! Heavy descipline needs to be applied to DHS employees AND their contractors who report lies in their records. The current practice is to 'reward' employees and contractors for reporting lies. It's in their 'secret' files! Those 'secret' files need to be opened for people involved in the case to read and contest the statements!

LEGISLATORS: Please review the ASFA and learn how it is providing enormous financial rewards and bonuses to DHS organizations across the country!

It's a case of fraud! Force DHS to only record true statements. Stop the monetary rewards and bonuses currently being provided to DHS for lies they are 'ethically' not responsible for. Force DHS employees and their contractors to report ONLY truths. Lies are not ethical. They're lies! Force DHS to accept grievances without immediately claiming they are "MOOT" because they have progressed to the next step. If an employee resigns or is moved to another case, the grievance should not be classified as "MOOT" and exempt DHS and their employees and contractors from all responsibility!

RETRACT OR REVISE THE ASFA. STOP DESTROYING CHILDREN AND FAMILIES SOLELY FOR FINANCIAL REWARDS AND BONUSES PROVIDED BY THE ASFA!

Check the facts! Virtualy EVERY child taken into custody for ANY reason is immediately placed on Medicare because of their 'emotional disability' caused solely by DHS removing the child from his/her familiar surroundings, telling him/her lies, making false accusations against the parent(s) and twisting the children's understanding of family activities to alter their minds. All of this is done for the benefit of DHS through the ASFA. IT'S EXPERIMENTING WITH THE MINDS OF YOUNG CHILDREN! IT'S PRESCRIBING 'MIND ALTERING' DRUGS TO CHILDREN WHO ARE SO EMOTIONALLY UPSET BY THE ACTIONS OF DHS's CPS! The DHS's CPS administrative staff KNOWS that what is being told in this response is absolute truth!

Take a look at the number of children that are being forced through 'extended grief therapy' or placed on mind altering drugs because of DHS actions promoted by the ASFA.

Legislators need to prescribe through legal means, descipline for DHS employees and contractors for child abuse and neglect they openly promote! Legislators need to devise laws to stop rewarding DHS for their INTENTIONAL child abuse and neglect! Let the FACTS prevail!
