Statitically proven that more children are severely abused or killed through our current system than leaving them with their families, my children were no exception to this stastistic... CPS needs reform and it needs it now! This must stop, social workers are permitted to lie and falsify documents with absolutely no accountability and no regard to the harm they are doing to the children whose lives they have been entrusted with... Children are manipulated to support their agenda, parents are forced into admitting to things that never happened in an effort to comply out of fear they will never see their children again...it's so incredibly debestating to know that this is going on in America or for that matter anywhere in the world. It has to stop, efforts should be made to keep families together, statistics don't lie...it's time to put an end to the needless suffering that our broken system is putting these families through!
I am going thru cps and this is a nightmare my son autistic and they took all 5 of my kids and now they order the 2 babies put back in my care but refuse to give me my other 3 my kids have never had bruises and great attendance until cps became involved. Now my oldest daughter is 14 and serially active and keeps running away from placement
It's horrific enough when a multitude of persons employed by our Local, State and Federal governments are blatantly and so clearly covering, lying, cheating, disregarding and SWAPPING documents on the face of their very OWN Records in our Systems against our very own U.S. Citizens... but to snatch our children only for numbers and System Profits... to only IGNORE the ABUSE that even our very own Children are SUFFERING at the hands of STRANGERS within such a System of pure GREED... to DENY anything other with even ONE Child, but SO MANY CHILDREN in this Country... is over-the-top OUTRAGEOUS!! Yes, if it is not happening to you, it IS happening! Just LOOK!! Even the most ignorant person among us, CAN see it... Why can't YOU?? Signed, -Sickened, Saddened & Outraged
we need one for greenfield mass
I have been investigated on bogus hotline calls, my autistic son has been targeted and removed based on "history" not facts because of the bogus unfounded calls to the hotline, every time a call comes in they are here to investigate. THIS NEEDS TO STOP!!!!
Stop CPS child medical kidnappings now. Help parents keep their rights.
my son was shot in az. (home invasion) cps took my grandson while his dad was in the ambulance. then said it was because of his lifestyle even though he has never met the intruder. the man was arrested.still fighting to get him back. cps have more power than the FBI.
need to save abused and neglected children not the ones who are not in any danger from their loving families
Medical kidnapping is still kidnapping, and is a felony in every state.
they need to go after abused and neglected children not the ones that were in a happy home
Injustice against one American is injustice against all Americans. Help us put the Justice back into Child Protective Services and get them focused on finding and saving abused children. It's time we removed them from the profitable business of tearing loving non-offending families apart...
The extent to which children are being ripped from their families is not only alarming, it's a disgrace. The fundamental design of child protective services has fallen by the way side and has been replaced with greed and power of abuse. This must stop.
Stop abusing children by taking them out of their loving homes and putting them with foster parents who are mentally incapable of bringing love and basic needs to a child. You practice injustice instead of justice. Get it right now before affecting more families!
Stealing children form non abusive homes is a crime against humanity. Medical kidnapping is wrong and it needs to be stopped.
I pray for the souls of the offenders. May God give them truth conviction and healing.
CPS needs to get back to the point of protecting children, not putting them in dangerous positions!
Stealing children form non abusive homes is wrong and a crime against humanity. Stealing them for medical purposes to conduct medical experiments on children is wrong. Hundreds if not thousands of these children are right here in America. Due process needs to be restored to the family court system and the children that have been kidnapped from loving homes need to be returned. the financial incentives for removing children needs to be taken away. DCF and CPS workers earn a salary. They should never receive a bonus for removing any child from any home abusive or not. Far fewer children would be getting removed from parental custody if there were no financial incentive to do so. Parents need to be allowed to make decisions medically for their children without DCF involvement. If a Doctor has a problem with a second opinion then maybe another Dr. should examine the child to determine if a procedure is medically necessary. To many Dr.'s think they are God and can do no wrong. There are many children out there that have been removed from parental custody for simply asking for a second opinion. This is wrong and needs to be corrected.
Stealing children from non-abusive homes is not only a crime, but a horrific act of inhumanity. Children are not assets of the state, they belong to and with their loving families. For the care and protection on actual abuse cases, protevtive services must be held accountable to the fullest and most serious extent of the law. It is an atrocitie that families should live in fear for the safety of their children from a system which is supposed to be in place to provide protection and safety
I have young adults, and I have met to many children abused by the system over the years, too many children have been victimized by these agencies, and the steeling of children for medical purposes has got to be the biggest and worst, yet.. Make these agencies work properly for our people... Perhaps it might be prudent to give them a history lesson as well... World history, the decimation and oppression in other countries that did so much immeasurable damage over the past 50 years to the people who suffered through it. The experiments of the holocaust. The Cold War.. All good examples of conditions we want to avoid... Children need protection and so do families, but it appears that the bad guys are turning out to be you... The government, because you are passing laws enforcing and allowing these agencies to abuse our people for a series of industries that have no human conscience, and sustain themselves by feeding on our people.. Starting with the children first... It's time for you to stand up and do what's really the most important reason you hold office, the care and well being of your people... Thank you for hearing my thoughts on this... Mom.
My son was adopted out by cps without any abuse at home.
I'm so glad my children are grown & gone. I too had a short child, but the docs helped with her instead of being taken by CPS for "failure to thrive". Parents should have a say in what happens to their children. Especially good, decent, loving parents, that have lost their children to this system. smh
The government is out of control with involvement in families children are suffering families are broken and it has been the destruction of this country . A county divided among against itself cannot stand. America its time to stop the war on children and families
It's time to stop the insanity where families are targeted and losing their children for reasons other than imminent danger.
We have laws in place that CPS feels they are immune to. It is time that someone does something to help the children and parents that are being harmed by a system out of control.
Please overhaul and expose all the corruption in this system. Then we need to protect our children using the justice system that's already in place. If someone is guilty of harming a child, let them know what their crime is, have a warrant when they come to the home for the children, let them be tried in a transparent court by a jury of their peers (fellow parents), and let the justice be swift. The current system sets children up for legalized human trafficking - and we know that is a huge injustice towards our smallest and most innocent citizens.
these people need cameras on them! they lie! I experienced this when I reported suspected sexual abuse.. i knew what the mother did as child told me,but i had no idea about the step aunt! child told me 2 days later about that! she told me call lawyer stop visits! long story short, she changed after meeting with the mother and her ex-cop dad.. then they said i was lying and she said that i TOLD the child to say that! they throw their threats and diagnosis out just because of who they believe-even with proof of the mothers violence, they don't care! they need reform .especially with law- enforcement in the family! they should have some fines and jail to make them investigate better!
My kids were taken in 2011 by my family with the help of DCFS who my aunt (a lawyer) use to work for. They came to my home with bogus accusations on several occasions prior to my mom and aunt taking them in 2011 all accusations were unfounded. In 2011 my family had my youngest sons therapist call DCFS to say that the young man (18, son of a friend, living in an abusive household) that my husband I decided to help get his GED and then get him into college so he could make his own way was accused of molesting my youngest son. My youngest son Matthew (Autistic with several other disabilities) if at all molest could have possibly been molested by the kid we were helping. How? because the 18 year old didn't come to us until June 2010. My mother had the same therapist who called in the report in 2011 call me back in January 2010 while I was at work and threaten me that if I didn't turn over Matthew to my mother and let her take care of him then she would call DCFS and tell them I was neglecting a disabled child by not allowing him the one on one attention. So because I didn't know the laws and I had been threatened so many times with DCFS by family I believed her and I turned my son over to my mother in January 2010. So as you can see it allegations of 2011 are impossible. That is only one of the allegations they made up against me the others are even more just as distasteful and untrue but there was nothing I could do. On July 5th my mother came to me (in tears) she told me that she had talked to the DCFS case worker in charge of my case and they told her that if I didn't sign custody of my kids over to her then they would take my kids, split them up into 3 different homes and stick them in foster care. I was so distraught by the thought of this that I burst into tears and believed every single word my mom told because why not she's my mom why would she lie to me. So under coercion and duress I signed the temporary custody papers that my mother just so happened to already have drawn up and with her when she came to my house. The order was signed at 2am in the morning on the 6th and my kids were gone on the 7th. The DCFS case closed on that very same day (no abuse founded) but by then it didn't matter cause my kids were gone. I've gone to court several times and each time DCFS has sent a case worker to go against me. Even the last order that was written up by the magistrate is was so full of lies and wrong information that will now be pasted on to future hearings to stand against me even though it's wrong. I have tried writing to my House Rep. Senators, the Inspection General even the President to tell and show just how corrupt this system is, all the way up to the judicial system and yet I get nothing because no one cares. My lawyer claims this is the most "****ed up" case he has ever seen in all his years of practice and he can't believe that all these people are getting away with this. It's the kids who are suffering here but not a single one seem
Stop the madness!bring our kids home!!
I had my Children taken from me in 2003. I was charged with neglect,although later in the Virginia Supreme Court they dismissed and reversed my charges. The family court judge still did a TPR. MY BOYS WERE ADOPTED. I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO FIND THEM SINCE.
cases should NOT be allowed to continue when a family member calls cps with lies an false allegations. cps is required to investigate an if no proof of abuse or neglect has occurred the case is supposed to be dismissed. but that is not my case. they have allowed a family member to make false allegations an lies against me, they refused to follow agency guidelines an procedures an the laws, even the court does this. how can they legally get away with this when it is based on lies an falsities with no due process an many rites bein violated?
