cps is hypocritical unjust disgusting ****ed up agency, who uses innocent children for money! united states is completely ****ed up and are government is behind all of it!
Cps case workers do not know how to tell the truth!!!
Shut CPS Down .
Shut CPS Down .
These things have to stop for the health of our nation.
My children are being adopted when me and by kids mom went to court for the first time I was incarcerated and the judge (Scott n johanson) asked what my job was would not give me a chance to answer and said is your job selling drugs. The judge or dcfs did not offer services or reunification. I never got the chance to even say good bye to my children. There is much more to my story. I don't know who or where to go to contact for help.
I am fighting dcfs myself here in price and my children are being adopted out it has not only tore me apart n my heart out. But mostly my 3 baby girls. I don't know who to Contact for help... I feel they are human TRAFFIKING our children. Noone wants dares or will stand up to them
This article is NOT alarmist or extreme. My children were kidnapped by CPS. I'm a perfectly fit parent, and CPS knew that when they took my kids. I am a degreed, Sunday School teaching, soccer coach dad. who has now been appointed by a Court as a special advovate foe abused & neglected children. This CAN and DOES happen to perfectly fine parents DAILY.
This is barbaric and UNPARDONABLE
CPS is all that is said on the "Reform" home page. They were told by a police investigation and a polygragh that they should back off from this innocent man (my ex-son-in-law). They ignored the facts, did not investigate the root cause and went after him anyway - he is looking at 25 to life. What a major injustice. Everyone, including his children, his ex-wife - everyone says he is inocent - who or what gave CPS so much control? They are distroying a family and making life hell for the children they are trying to protect. God help us.
I never believed my children could be taken from our loving home with no evidence of abuse or neglect in our country. I was never charged with a crime where these allegations would have to be proven, I was tried and convicted in family court based solely on false and inaccurate testimony, given by cps agents who was never required to produce evidence to substantiate any claim of child abuse. I was repeatedly denied due process and the right to face my accuser, who was an anonymous tipster who couldn't even give the names or ages of my children. Now there is irreversible damage to my entire family caused by agents who cannot be held accountable for failing to follow laws,procedures and respect my constitutional rights.
I believe cps needs to do a better job. I know a couple of children who are physically mentally and the little girl has been sexually abused. Cps has done nothing but rehabilitate the mom time and time again. Mom has failed drug test numerous times there has been pictures and videos of all of the abuse and still nothing has been done. It's sad and pathetic!!
Require substantiated medical evidence and STOP the CORRUPT INVESTIGATOR doing dirty deeds for their Friends! If schools report alleged black eyes and have nurses available then REQUIRE MANDATORY physical exam which requires Touching the alleged black eye! What a travesty of JUSTICE and LAW!

C&Y needs reform! In northampton county caseworkers lie to kidnap children & then play the delay game when its time to return the children home! Something needs to be done, STOP STEALING OUR CHILDREN!
Bring integrity into government and government programs.
Cps removed my granddaughter while visiting the maternal grandmother, over a sunburn in az in july. They tookthe side ofvthe family that lost rights. They lost all custody prior, and had filed false unfounded charge months before. They other family has lied in court and are herion addicts previously. On treatment. They said we had no say and that they supercede The superior family courts. The child was not in danger. They were rude and had no regaueds for the loss of her grandfather the day before. 3 years my granddaughter has been missing with that family
I lost 15 years with my son because dfs lied and judge said there was no evidence of any abuse. But judge still signed the TPR and ruined my son and my family 's life. I have documented proof but no one will listen. I can prove the system is faulty.

Have you got a load of Toledo-Lucas Co. Ohio yet?
DHS has over stepped it's role and taken our nephew from our home after living with us 5 months and put him with his biological father who met him 2 months ago, wanted him dead before he was born and repeatedly beat the mother almost to death while she was pregnant.

CPS must be reformed. Taking children of rare diseases and making accusations of too many doctor visits is inappropriate. My grandchildren will never be the same after what CPS did.
I've been dealing with them for almost 6 months and they are the ones that have harmed my children.

Child trafficking-LIBEL-Identity theift--cruel and unusual punishment to families--forced adoption--FORCING CHILDREN ONTO PSYCOTROPIC DRUGS---this is criminal behavior
My sister, who is being harassed by CPS caseworkers and who has no resources to fight back needs action by our lawmakers to restore justice in a corrupt system. She has essentially had her boy taken from her for no other reason than she tried to prevent him from hanging out with peers who were leading him into drug use. He rebelled (as teenagers do) by choking his mother who had to hit him back to keep from going unconscience. Police promptly arrested her and her life has been a living hell ever since. She is a good and loving person who always, though poor, did her absolute best to keep him fed, housed, and happy. Unfortunately, the one thing that the CPS workers lack is compassion and understanding. That is the very thing that they need the most. It has taken a toll on the extended family, too. Reform must be made and quickly. Thank you.
Having listened to my sister's accounting of the appalling CPS worker's behavior, I am 100% in favor of reforming CPS as a national priority. Simply said, there is rampant corruption of an agency acting like the abuser of of children, parents and their extended families. Stop them now!
Please help my mom keep her grandchildren. The cps worker are taking them from her. She is fully capable of taking care of them. The cps workers are so heartless and crooked. My mother just wants to make sure there loved and taken care of. The cps act like they don't care about the children at all. Please help her
I'm an Intensive Case Manager for adults with mental illness. My clients child was sexually abused in foster care. The foster parents were cleared. Forensic evidence exam =positive. CPS tried to cover it up by giving my client an attorney that works for CPS. God help us.
Millington family needs somebody to help us.Cumberland county Children services took my children from me in Fayetteville north Catalina they kept saying different reasons why they took my children from me now they tell me I can't have my children because my car broke down and I asked a cop to help us the judge made a ruling to take my rights from me after children services workers told in court how they didn't have their jobs at children services anymore from tampering with stuff about my court case .the judge ordered stuff to be destroyed so nobody can see what was going on I have pepper work and videos and tape recorder to show something is right about my court case. If you can please help up call (910)609-8534
CPS illegally took 2 of my grandchildren. The attorney we hired took our money and did nothing, didnt even show up for court. Reform is needed, especially to protect our low income population, CPS targets them takes our children, and basically sells them to foster families. The sad part is people are aware of what is going on, and nothing is done about this corruption in our government to step up and investigate these cases, and put our children back with their families. It is time our rights as low income citizens be upheld, and not ignored.
This is absolutely necessary reform. Please act!
These monsters must be stopped!!! I am going into family law in Utah and also trying to start an organization and shelter for moms to get help to keep their families together.. I don't want to see anyone have to suffer the pain of losing their babies like I did and do every single day of my life.. not to mention what they have done to my children right now and in the future!! I hate dcfs/cps with every ounce of my being!! to all those who have lost their lifes.. I will make a change and we will all be heard!!
OCS violated my rights with no regards of finding out the truth
something need to be done now not later now. how many more kids are going to be taken away?? does any congress man or woman care or do there care more about money ? north Carolina need reforn now , congress has no idea what is really going on
Serious reform must happen right away!! These workers are taking children, charging loving parents with serious allegations and ordering supervised visits that do not happen. Please join this fight to take this corrupt power and control out if the hands if these workers.
In 1998 My three boys were taken from me.Now a product of CPS is a Father him self but is so unhealthy mentally from the protection of these people that he is unable to sit up and fight for his own son. I have no rights of being a grandparent.CPS IS MESSED UP!
After working with our local CPS as a community partner in services for children's mental health, I was shocked at the treatment the families withstood, from promises that were continuously broken to being "liked" in order to move through to reunification swiftly. Nobody was on the same page, the local judge was constantly scolding CPS Workers for their recommendations. I was sitting with a grandmother who was kinship care for her grand daughter and her CPS Worker called and I heard her yelling at grandmother to tears. Next meeting, we were asked by CPS to be extra supportive of natural supports like grandparents. WTF! 4 long years with parents reeling back into crisis over CPS actions. Disgusting.
BELLINGHAM CPS IS COMMITTTINGFRAUD AND STRAPPING SEVEN YR OLD LIL GIRLS TO.GURNIES
In the last four years CPS has been apart of my families lives due to a woman who has abused making false allegations and telling lies about our family. If CPS would have taken the time to look into the sheep's wool they would have seen the wolf! CPS has been taken complaints from a woman who has been found to be an unfit mother by the courts......
