My kids are with cps now and i am really fighting to get them back i really need help
My male caseworker falsely gave me a neglect charge after jumping through hoops to give him every bit of information, two drug tests, explaining my story several times in great detail, going through hell and back to prove my innocence and showing him I was too busy to repeal because I was getting my son medical attention from countless specialists and endless appointments! All this because my son had a seizure in the shower
Socialworkers blatently lied about wat I sed! Nothin I can do! So angry, after helping my daughter take care of her kids(4) for two yrs.(im 54)im not allowed to c them or help the other grandma w/their care because of the lies sed about me! stjoeco.in.) let alone the lies about my daughter and fiance! we r scared to aproach these poeple in charge of our lives for fear they will lie about all of our concerns!

Greenville tx has taken my babies please please help. The lady that took them is on the news she has been arrested now what can I do to get my babies back
Jackson County of MI. Is very corrupted they take and sell your children. They need to be investigated..
cps of Johnson cty. Cleburne texas.needs to be investigated...badly
I believe protecting children is honorable, however, Children's Services not being held accountable for the injustices they inflict is very wrong. Personally, I've heard them lie, malign, abuse power in nearly every way and yet, they get by with it. Stop harming our children and families...those children who are truly abused, many of the parents get by...innocent families are targeted sometimes and are horrendously treated and destroyed.
Investigations of CPS practices which include the needless removal of children, violation of civil rights, perjury in courts,false accusations, and the list goes on needs to be investigated.
My toddlers were strip searched at their preschool without my knowledge, consent, or presence. So what they are teaching my kids is that as long as someone has a badge, or says they are allowed to do this, its ok for my kids to show their private parts to anyone who claims they are allowed to see them "for safety purposes"!!!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS????? The charges against me stemmed from a bogus complaint from my neighbors who are upset with me. Whatever. I have nothing to hide. I have cooperated, and will continue to cooperate as I have done nothing wrong. They could have called me and told me what was going on, that they were at my kids preschool, and that I could come down there asap so they could do this, but either way, they had to do this. I would have been fine! I would have came straight down there, and held my child's hands and told them that mommy said it was ok to do this so that the people could see that they were safe. But no, they didnt even bother to do that! They walked in, flashed their badge, and made my toddlers take all their clothes off!!!! I AM LIVID!!!!!!!! HOW CAN THAT BE LEGAL!!!!!! I have tried my hardest to teach my kids that they dont show their privates to ANYONE except the doctor, and ONLY if mommy is right there with them and says its ok! And the government has went in and underminded everything I've tried to teach my kids!!! I cannot believe that anyone with a badge is allowed to go around strip searching toddlers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
CPS operates on lies, i have seen their tactics and have family experience of the fabrication of allegations.
I was a CPS case manager and ever word is true. I had no children, no experience and little training. I had waaaaaaay more rights than police and was permitted to use police to enforce those rights, including but not limited to entering people's homes. I finally quit because I just couldn't handle the power anymore. I lived in constant fear that I was runining people because every word I said was "truth" to the courts and every choice I made changed people's lives forever. It was too much for me but some people thrive on it and those are the people that abuse that power and stick around to continue to feel important. That said, many are kind with the best of intentions and even they make mistakes (but that doesn't matter because either way they're God)
CPS got involved in our lives! We have proved beyond as the courts say, "a shadow of doubt" that they made at least 13 false allegations. They didn't win and are facing criminal charges now!!
I am an amazing mom who doesn't use spanking BUT I am terrified of CPS due to all of the horror stories. I am more afraid of them kidnapping my kids legally than I am of stranger danger. PLEASE END THIS.
Our loved ones are not your pawns and chattel.
im all for cps following same guidelines as law enforcement.
Texas CPS repeatedly returned my son to his mother who has an extensive abuse and neglect history. She currently has been arrested for gun trafficking, stolen guns and theft. She is also a drug abuser but they keep letting her go to "classes" and making me pay her child support to her while son was in foster care for a year.
3 CPS caseworkers arrested in my county today on multiple charges of Tampering with evidence and Official Oppression. Read the story yourself. Google CPS caseworker arrest in Greenville Texas.
My son is currently in foster care because I am an ex-addict. He was taken and I did everything they asked and then when I was supposed to get him back they falsified tests so that he would remain in foster care longer. At this point I'm scared and not sure if I will ever get my son back. He is 1 year old and now gone 6 months and bonding with the fosters more than me. I supply his food & clothes and have a beautiful home waiting for him ....waiting empty.
Justice for Alex Hill and others killed in CPS mandated foster homes. Business of harming the most innocent with no voice. This has to stop. Prosecute those who put Alex Hill in the home of criminals who abused and murdered a tiny 2 year old beautiful little toddler. RIP Alex and seek justice, penalties and reform in her name.
The cps has found another avenue to steal children from families as well...and it has increased big time over the last several months...all over the country familes are having thier children taken from families who have cards to use and grow medical marijauna for illnesses a family member may have...cps is sending a message...you can smoke your pot but we are taking your kids...one little girl has recently been killed in the hands of a foster parent in the middle of the night because the child was in the kitchen looking for food...why was she taken from her parents when the child was perfectly healthy and happy? because of pot use..not because the child was abused...cps just recently stole another three month old baby from a family with a medical marijauna card...the reason...child was being placed at high risk of danger by the family for a possible higher risk of an armed robbery or a home invasion ...so the child had to be removed in case the home had a robbery break in...this is a sick joke with cps...
My niece in Texas has just been reported falsely by her Ex mother-in-law.I am hoping for a better outcome than others have gotten.
Happened to me, despite all they were say was lies & I had reputable company's & ppl vouching & writing letters for me. They dint give it a second look. Oh and guess wut..I'm in they're prime category! Poor, minority, & both my kids get ssi! It hurts so bad knowing I was a good mom, & so many ppl out here that don't deserve to have their kids do. But who's gonna listen, they r too big to fight. I'm praying this helps. Thank u, evrybdy. Naughtyauni@gmail.com

I have been on the other side of CPS and had them investigate my former spouse and his then girlfriend. It's very difficult to form an opinion on how to proceed in the best interest of the children of the information you receive from the worker may or may not be based of experience and fact. When I had questions, they were evaded however they expect theirs to be answered without hesitation. This one phone call in regards to an incident I was not directly involved in put a large wedge in the advancement we had made post divorce. To the detriment of our daughters. Clearly this was a young worker with little experience and many opinions. It poses the question that is it opinion or fact that is used in their determinations, and What credentials qualify a worker the ability to make these decisions. Clearly she did not even understand that calling at 6pm on a Sunday 30 days after they opened the investigation to call the ex wife of the person who called CPS on his girlfriend, wasn't appropriate. In 30 days there was no time to call until dinner time on a Sunday? I still do not understand why I was contacted as to the kind of father my ex was when the call was made against his girlfriend and I cannot get a copy of the report. Seems there is a problem with their protocol.
We need our "The People" liberties and justice back. Families have the rights to these, we need a total reform. The system was not set up to destroy our people, but to help and support FAMILIES!
A disgraceful,family destroying agencey,Disgraceful!!
I have personally experienced the lies of CPS who made 13 absolutely false statements regarding my son, including one where he was "abused in South Africa, England and America" My son has NEVER been to England!! At my home in South Africa, there were daily visits by senior police and intelligence officers due to my job in the South African intelligence services who have stated that there was never any sign of abuse. In the USA there was never any abuse. CPS even falsified a Release of Information Request, supposedly signed by my wife, who was in hospital with me on the day in question when i was rushed in for an emergency heart problem. CPS lies consistently to achieve their agenda!
They need to be focusing on the children who are being abused and not attacking the ones that are not. Take away the rights of the callers who call in anonymously or go to the callers house first to see how they know the person they are accusing. The ones who call in need to be sent to jail if the cases end up closed because the investigator finds no abuse or neglect. This is not only devastating to the parents but also the children who have to be investigated, conned and or manipulated in to saying false statements.
