From the bottom of my heart, I thank all of you who have spent time gathering and researching this massive amount of data, and able to discern the true facts by cohesively presenting this in an eloquent manner.
I have been harassed by CPS for 7 years in June of 2014 because my ex and current wife are aloud to make repeated false reports to CPS OVER AND OVER to point of being harassment and causing to be a real neglence in ones life after seven years of constantly being accussed and drug tested over and over and servicexs over and over that I have had to pay for gas and transportation to and from to these services CPS keeps asking me to do over and over. when will it be enough that I have never failed a drug test or any kind of evaluation I have had to for gofor there (CPS) needs of there investigation to know has ever suggested that I wasn't in even the slightest of an abusive parent emtionaly or on a physical level to my children or anyone for that matter. My history that is used against me every time is just and only my CPS history because I have no other kind of history in my life so my CPS is what they keep saying is proof enough and my CPS history only consisting of being ones matter of personal opinion over there own investigative facts from at least 4-6 drug analysis at minimal performed in a years time or everytime my ex and his wife call in these false reports and CPS comes out to question me they make sure to make me feel like I have no rights and have to go out of my way to cooperate and causing masjor self worth issues with my self . If they show up or call when I simply have other agendas need to be addressed and already planned and not expecting having to make sure to leave enough time to talk with them just in case a report gets made today because if I don't and are not able to meet with ASAP then I'm hiding something or dodging for a reason of quilt or hiding something and imediately there trying to escalate my case status. I have to go out of my way and have been in prisoned in having to do what these people say and get bullied and emotional abused because they think or there personal opinion of me is a need to respect there position in authority for my families best interest and if I stand up for myself enough to annoy them or seem to question what they are doing if its in violation of our civil rights then they show you just how much power they have . Because of this my two children were ripped out of my care literally by gun point and no evidence to really support it other than lies from a social worker but no doubt the worker still managed to show me her power with no evidence to back up what they were saying to be true. I shouldn't have to jump through hoops to prove myself a fit parent that's not hiding from anything because every test I have ever undergone the outcome has never supported any allegations made or reported ever . Also phyc evaluations performed at the request of CPS , weekly counceling sessions with a licsenced family councler, parenting classes all ment for means of picking apart your life in order to find ANYTHING THAT COULD BE USED AGAINST YOU AND MADE OUT TO BE BAD MISTAKES OR CHOICES MADE IN LIFE .
Even Mondale commented,he'd hope his bill wouldn't be used to corrupt!After it had been passed.

I've seen first hand the injustices that CSB is capable of. My sister was under a no contact order in regards to her special needs son despite being his primary caregiver since birth all because her husband falsely accused her of overmedicating him as an act of revenge when their marriage fell apart. I wouldn't believe what I have seen if it didn't happen to our own family
My special needs grandson has not seen his mother in over six months . She is not even allowed to contact him by phone letter or email.aftter being accused of overmedicating him just before her husband filed for divorce. And yes csb has lied.
I have dealt with two children not being in my home, because of hear say, never had any physical evidence of neglect or abuse, but have two children who live with me, I have had cps lie, exaggerate, and have a judge who bases every ruling on my past hear say instead of all the good things I have done.
My son and his girlfriend are dealing with cps right now. The social worker made false statements to the judge in order to get him to sign consent to remove the child. I agree that cps needs to be investigated and the corruption be stopped. Its unjust and they should not be getting away with the crimes they commit. They should be held accountable for their actions.

Hello,
There was confusion as to why the video was added. It doesn't have anything to do with the story but was added just so people could see that I am a real person and that this was legit!
Attorneys NEEDED!

My grand daughters mother has had 13 seperate substanciated abuse and or neglet reports against her in the last 4 years.
My pre teen grand daughter has now been removed from her mother home a is in the states custody.
My son and his wife have never had any isues reports or problems with their two children. Plus in 12 years my son has never been late with the child support check , not ever .
Yet the CYFD of New Mexico will listen and swallow every word and lie comming from the mothers mouth while telling my son who has been trying for two years to get at least physical custody of his daughter ,that she will be adopted out before they will consider him and his wife as care givers.
The TPD officer and cps investigator thought it wasn't important to do a home visit when the (false alligations) are sexual abuse plus I have a on going custody battle with my ex who he and his girlfriend made the call. And we just won custody in 2012 from cps of my step daughter who they placed wish her mom who lost her from cps.very currupt
My family fell victim to cps. I am currently fighting to get my children back, my son was sexually abused in cps custody, they refuse to acknowledge that.
14 years ago , I had a seizure and a single/widowed mom. My babies daddy was a drug addict and abusive towards me & wasn't there for his son or daughter. I was told by the Cps worker that I was to choose either our son or his daddy - That was a NO BRAINER! I CHOSE OUR SON, kicked his dad out! I was Told, by Cps, " I made the 'wrong' choice?!? Cps took my son due to my disability - I was having a seizure, Since when is being disabled illegal? Then, in 2007, I got remarried, my son was in "post aDoption, Nobody ever informed us that we could have adopted/ Brought my son home! Now, he's 18 years old, when i called and sent cards & letters, the cards/ letters were sent back! When I called, their words were, " we aren't going to 'LET HIM GO'. QHAT DOES THIS MEAN? I DID EVERYTHING AS REQUIRED! HELL, I WAS EVEN 'PATIENT'!! SOMETHING I DONT DO AT ALL!
SINCE IM LEGALLY DISABLED, I JUST WANT TO KNOW ,"WHERE WAS THE 'PROTECTION' WHICH US "PROMISED" BY THE "Federal ADA"? Or, my Constitutional Rights? Civil or disability rights? Isnt this still the "U. S.of A"???
And I believed in " Life,liberty , And justice ( but, for who?)
Mrs. Cathy Widgren-Stubbs.
I pray that this will help to reform CPS . so many children end up being real victims of this system.

Amy roessler and rene striech of waseca county continue to lie every hearing after doing as they want they are now trying to terminate our rights the other day my case worker amy said that I allowed my child to sit at a visit with poop running down his pants and that the staff at keep me safe reported that I forced him to sit in his fecie the entire visit yet if that were so true then wouldnt keep me safe be neglecting my child at the visit by not intervening? I am so fed up with waseca human services it is sickening how they can lie aboutbth3 most rediculous things and feel they can just get away with it even the foster mom is lieing she states in her reports that my son throws a tantrum whenever he has to visit she claims my son screams no betsy no visit and that my daughter brakes her glasses to try and get out of seeing me this is not true our children miss us and we can see it yet cps and foster mom continue to push that my children are not safe since day one cps and cops and school teachers have lied and have stated I threw my daughter out a window and have been locking my kids up and beating them I have 3 kids and cps told the exchange club before we started our visits in their care to be cautious of us as we are extremely aggressive and to watch betsy because she might take one of the kids and run ...really one....if I was gonna take flight I wouldn risk prison for just one of my babies im quite possitive I would take all three butbim not stupid I want my kids back cps are bashing this family and making us out to people that we are not they have destroyed our reputation and have ruined an innocent family all for their own personal gaine its repulsive and I miss my kids so much during the course of my childrens stay there I questioned amy reossler my cps worker as to why my four year old is in actual babie diepers not pull ups and why he is not being potty trained amybstated the doter for my son discourages I called her on her lie and paid a visit to my sons docter and sure enough amy roessler was full of crap tgey also stated my doctor said that the diepers we have been using on all three of our kids for the past 3 yrs are causing rashes and the foster mom stated that his doctor wants only huggies yet she continued to use parents choice at the visits but we had to pay for huggies because according to the foster mom it was our diepers causing the rashes but we all know heather winter of waseca mn was just letting our kids suffer in wet diepers and blaming us for her irresponsible negligence my children have also been beaten in the counties care and the
foster mom states my son says we do it at the visits when no one is looking I am so un happy with these lies and the worst part is that my children are not safe cps needs to be taken down but like always no one can or will stop them its messed up what they are doing especially when my sick child comes to a visit with a temp of 103 and cps refuse to let her go home because they want t
CPS left me in a home with a child molester from the time I was 2 years old till I was 14. They put me and my oldest in foster care when she was born because I didn't know how to take care of her, the parents were supposed to teach me how to be a good mom. 6 weeks later, those 'foster parents' (who never fostered before or after me) kicked me out on the street. When I was older and married, I had 4 more children, I divorced my ex husband because he was physically abusive towards me. CPS took the kids because they said I was still involved with him and putting the kids in harms way. I divorced him to keep them safe! I was out on the streets again. I just found my oldest child on her 18th birthday and CPS and the child stealing 'parents' put her in a group home! When she was a baby, they 'tried' to place her with the good people in my family but told them she was a cripple, would be in a wheelchair and housebound her entire life. She's currently being scouted by colleges to play softball. I'm getting a lawyer. Who ever is doing this petition, I will do whatever it takes to get these changes made, even if it means going to the supreme court. I'm suing the state of Minnesota for damages, I found a way.
Myself and my children are victims of Illegal Abduction by CPS in Brown Co, Ohio. I was a single mother, and low income at the time. I am currently appealing my case. CPS is needed, but the way they operate is SICKENING!
I'M A FORMER FOSTER CHILD IN NEVADA. THE STATE TOOK MY KIDS, KNOWING I WAS DOING MY ABSOLUTE BEST TO PROVIDE AND KEEP MY CHILDREN SAFE. NEVADA NEGLECTED TO GIVE ME SINCERE, GENUINE, HELP!

It is absolutely abhorent how CPS Workers are slaying US Families! FBI and Homeland Security needs to work together and put an immediate "Stop" to this. Investigating any Caseworker whom has a high rate involvement in placement issues.

How can a State Legislative be so "consciously subordinate" to such evil doing. The children do not thank you for this ignorance, not to mention the mothers and fathers.

If CPS feels a child is being neglected, abused or assaulted then it should be "required" to maintain a Homestudy visit twice a week for at least 3 mo. for no less than 1 hour each visit before making any whatsoever claims against a family. In cases of possible assault the Caseworker should remain cordial and professional and request of the parents to accompany the Caseworker and child for medical evaluation at the nearest Hospital. Otherwise he/she are UNQUALIFIED to pass even half an assessment onto a DA. It takes a 20 year in practise qualified Mental Therapist longer than 10-20 mins to assess a human-being, but a former Retail Maanger "now acting" out as a CPS Worker can supposedly assess a "whole Family" within 10-20 mins. Which doesn't speak much for the intelligence of District Attorneys either whom swiftly jump the "patty wagon" believing what CPS lays infront of them to prosecute, let alone the Judges whom "don't seem to look at the Defendant and ask them calmly if they would like to tell their side of the story"!

CPS interrogative 10 -20 min synopsis Interviews are worth less than the paper they are quickly jotted down on.

Furthermore a Juvenile Case Worker should at minimum have mandated psychological Basictraining having worked together in/with a Family Psychologist/Therapist for at least 1/2 year before being let loose like a "Bounty Hunter with Custody Bullets" on American Families. But instead these so-called "Experts" have little or no understanding of the concept of Family.

News for all CPS and Legislatives who are reading this: Europe pulled this stunt you are pulling on your fella Citizens between 1910-1949 and learned from its mistakes. Now they have CPS Workers who know what their job is, ergo "keeping a family together" brings a County more money than the 4000.- headhunting Dollars you've placed on children's heads!

Understand that if you are truely in the job to make a difference for children, then you won't have a problem with what I am stating here. Thousands of children in the USA are being harmed by you in CPS.

If you would get the men and women whom are incarserated out of jail and help them create "jobs, which make jobs for others too" then your country will have more spending money in the household and you would have to stoop so low as to "steal and sell your citizens children".

The President of the US and Congress should get involved. This is purely insane!
my wife was abused by her step father nothing was done. Now our niece and nephew are being hurt. we reported but her brother who is a jr high teacher and was involved in the abuse made a report on us for environmental and medical neglect. This is the case dhs pursued not the real abuse we moved and my wife made a facebook post saying how messed up this is and her aunt told her if she didnt take the post down and stop telling family secretes or she would take legal action .this was calling dhs again in our new state saying we sold drugs the worker did not bring police and said early on that she didnt think we sold pot but we had a little clutter as we talked open to this lady and she made a case saying our kids are not being cared for properly long story short she ran with the case from the previous state and now we are in the midst of a drown out court case in witch we have no rites and our lawyer is saying they will find something no use fighting ....im so glad to see people are fighting and we are not alone. im going to school for criminal justice and look foreword to helping repair this broken system
Proof cps isn't held to the same standards as they impose on families.
Mad angel cps placed my kids here - YouTube m.youtube.com/watc...
Shasta county California is the pits. Not only can they beat you up,steal everything you have worked for 25 years for but they can take your kids too all for false allegations and nothing is done about it. Shasta lake and Redding California profit from the suffering of others. Do not send foster kids there. It is nothing but a crooked bracket there with high unemployment levels. Children need thier parents not managers!!

Utah dcfs is beyond control and Must be stopped!! Investigators lying to get warrants and admitting it in court with no internal accountability.
The cottage grove oregon cps is on to their game of making money off if children. Children returned home and then removed months later is the most abusive form of child abuse ever!! These children are now victims of real emotional trauma!! If the children have a loving non-abusive parent and absolutly no harm has come to the children how can they justify removing 5 children that are now in 4 different foster homes!!! This has got to stop happening!! For the best intetest of the children
I agree with this petition, I also have heard and seen some of the social workers use tactics as to come into your home and eat up your own food and make themselves comfortable as well as tell you if that was my child I "splap them for acting crazy" I find it very unethical. ANd when you are getting help for your teen they want you to sign papers as though they ask you to do it under thier request. Not to mention having you sign the paperwork to close the case and leave blank areas to "fill in" when they get out back to the office.
Dickinson County Iowa needs to take notes.. They are the absolute worst.
This madness has to stop.. Cps is violating people civil rights.
CPS needs to change and kids need to come home.
CPS is corrupt and something needs to be done, we need to make all of our public officials aware.
CPS is Corrupt!!! We are Putting an End to Crimes Against Humanity!!! Purple Hearts Missions Possible Inc.
CPS is actually anti family and are very anti-men, I learned this first hand and I am a woman. They all cover for each others lies as well! Cousins in system severally abused and became criminals as a result. we are talking severe abuse much worse than what they were experiencing!!!
