A MUST READ for ALL Parents!!
Yes, these Horrors DO exist!!
It really did start as a good thing.
In today’s state of affairs CPS workers (Child Protective Services) are coming into homes and taking children at an alarming rate. There are many things that can be said about CPS and most of them are not good. When CPS was first started it was designed for the betterment. Since we have learned and evolved in our parenting skills, we have become better parents.
Think it doesn't apply to you?
If you think that you are a good parent and they have nothing on you, think again. If you are a grandparent and think they can’t take away your grandchildren, think again. Look around your home, do you have wooden table? Anything with corners? Throw rugs? Sharp knives that are not locked away? Chemicals that are used for cleaning that are not under lock and key? Down to 1 egg in your egg tray? Do you have any enemies? Maybe a neighbor that is displeased with you? PLEASE read on!!
Social Security - YOUR money is being used!
Social Security? YES!
Two things are going on with CPS, first because we have become better parents they are needing to find justification for taking of children. The second, WHY do they need to take children? Because of the money involved. There is a LOT of money involved in children. Counseling for 'reunification' is no longer encouraged, in fact most often it is refused.
Our Federal Government is paying CPS to take children via Title IV D funding, or in other words Social Security. So when the day comes that you are told Social Security is broke and you are allowed no benefits, you will know this; All the money that you pay in each week goes, in part, to the removal of children from their homes.
Follow the money
Before I get into what is done with these children let explain the money. When a CPS worker becomes involved. Meaning when they open a case, the local office receives between $3,000 and $5,000 dollars per child - per month, from the Federal Government. The money just goes up from there. CPS can drag out cases for months. Then when they feel the money may be drying up from you (the client) they may take a good look at your children. Are they marketable? Are they cute, is it possible they can be adopted out?
What can and does happen
The first thing that can and does happen is you will be charged with something, anything. Please understand it does not have to be proven, not at all. The accusation is enough to remove your child/children. The most common charge is ‘failure to protect’. This can come from just about anything. After that, they can bring more charges and if they have made the 1st one, it is guaranteed they will come up with many others. NOT ONE CHARGE HAS TO BE PROVEN. A false accusation from ANYONE can bring CPS knocking at your door.
CPS workers are ‘above the Law’, there are no ramifications, no repercussions and they have no accountability. They are allowed BY LAW to say and do anything they please to take your children from your home. State Troopers LOVE to let CPS workers take charge because they do not have to have a warrant. All you have to do is open the door to them. Once they have entered your home, everything becomes suspect and they can and do remove anything they think they can charge you with. All without a warrant. Not only that, but you do NOT have to be read your Miranda rights.
More than likely you will be placed on the news with some sort of horror story that has been cooked up that will have you ostracized from the community. Your family and friends may turn against you because of the charges. Your spirit will be broken and all you will want is for ‘it to be over’, once you have come to that stage, they have you. You will do anything they tell you to do.
Former FBI Agent
What happens to the children?
What happens to the children? At first they may be allowed to live with family members, but that will be short lived. They may be moved from foster care to foster care, those children who don’t want to leave their parents are labeled as mentally unstable and usually placed on large amounts of medication. Some of these become ’The Throw away’ children. Once they have forced, coerced or threatened you to sign off your parental rights you kids will now be put up for adoption. Your family members will not be allowed to adopt them. Why? Because the State does not receive money for family related adoptions.
For each child that is adopted out, the State receives upwards of $85,000 from you guessed it, Title IV funding, or Social Security.
Some of these children are even sold to other Countries. For International adoptions the amount received is unknown at this point. It is kept very secret. A Former FBI agent is the one who discovered that this was happening.
What can YOU do?
There are several steps you can take to PREVENT your children from becoming targeted by CPS. Keep in mind the ones who are first targeted are relatively poor families. Being on any assistance can bring you unwanted attention. The second are large families, having 5 or more children will cause CPS to direct their attention your way. Because the amount of money that is involved, think about it, for 5 children they can get for your County between $15,000 and $25,000 per month, to start!! They particularly like to target 2 parent homes, because the children will be removed to foster care. If there is an ‘absent’ parent they are obligated to place the children in that home first, this will not net them any money so these families are over looked a lot of the time, even if ACTUAL abuse is noted.
1. The first thing you can do is put up a ‘No Trespassing’ sign on your property.
2. The next thing is a sign on your door “WARNING -ALL WHO ENTER ARE SUBJECT TO VIDEO SURVEILLANCE - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!! Make sure you have a camera that can record on hand.
3. NEVER open the door to a stranger! If someone comes knocking at your door, step outside to talk to them. If you invite them in, that is all that is needed.
Keeping them at Bay
ALWAYS make sure you write down their identity and badge number if they have one. If you can get them to sign their name that they visited that’s even better!
More than likely if you have those first 3 in place they will think twice about attempting to enter your property. If you force them to get a warrant then you will have a little more protection from the law. Not much, but some.
On to the ‘next step’. If you are having a hard time with your bills and your electricity is on ‘shut off’ you may be subject to being under scrutiny. In a home that has no electricity or one that is having a hard time keeping up with the bills, CPS will find a way to wiggle in. It is felt that electricity is a ‘necessity’ unless you can prove that you have a few things in place your children may be taken away.
Battery operated lighting, flash lights, or even hurricane lamps (provided the fluid is kept safe and put up out of the reach of children) are a good thing to have should your electricity be shut off. A small propane cook stove (can be found in the camping gear area of your local Walmart). Bottled water. Water sanitizing tablets. Canned food, with non electric can opener. Powdered eggs (if you can find them) and powdered milk. A first aid kit. Extra blankets or sleeping bags. Think ’Disaster’ when implementing these types of things in your home. Keep them separate from your ’regular’ things, in a closet or storage area that the kids can’t get into. If a CPS or DHS worker comes into your home, you can show them your preparedness.
Keep a log and RECORD everything
If you MUST talk to them, make sure they are recorded! Make sure that you keep a log of ALL visits. It is a guarantee they will not want this. NEVER sign ANYTHING without first consulting with an Attorney. Always, always remember your 5th Amendment right!!!! The right to remain silent, UTILIZE this!!! They will threaten you, “If you don’t talk to me, I promise you will never see your children again”. Get this recorded or in writing. It is a PROMISE that anything you say WILL be used against you, no matter what you say!
In most cases when there is a false accusation a number of your civil rights are being abused. Find a Civil Rights Attorney, if you can’t afford one see if they will take your case pro-bono. This will be a ‘Civil’ case, an Attorney WILL NOT be provided for you, you MUST provide your own. IF you are charged with Criminal charges, then you will be provided with an Attorney if you cannot afford one. Both Civil and Criminal are two different cases and WILL NOT be combined.
Children or Puppies?
In the State where I live there is a website that has been created for those wishing to adopt children. It is a site where pictures of children are displayed with a bio describing the children. Most of the parents that I have talked to regarding this site are horrified because it gives the impression that the children are being auctioned off to the highest bidder. If your looking for a puppy then might you not do the same?
The first Senator to bring these horrors to light has been murdered. Her name is Nancy Schaefer. It was tried to be covered up as a murder/suicide, not many believe it.
Many of you who have read my Hubs know that I am ALL ABOUT the children. I still am, more than ever. I am making a stand, using my voice. I realize that I am putting myself on the line with this Hub. Please, please do not disregard this Hub, it is very serious. Pass it along, the more we make aware of what is going on the more likely we can do something about this travesty.
Still not a Believer?
For those of you who are still skeptical of what I am saying go visit ‘you tube’ and type in CPS in the search bar, a multitude of various video’s will pop up. On face book there are MANY various sites that are trying to get help for parents who have had their children removed. Go to Google and type in Legally Kidnapped. There are many sites that can use your support, one day you may be on the chopping block from CPS, if you are prepared then you will begin to know where to turn.
