Here's the Proof That Child Protective Services (CPS) Abuses Children and Their Families in the USA

This page holds videos about Child Protective Services (CPS) abuse in the United States of America. Here you'll see families being broken apart, destroyed, traumatized and tortured by USA child protection agencies and CPS social workers. These are stories about families in pain, family rights, and CPS cruelty to children and their families.

The Famous Stolen Baby Video

How to Destroy a Strong Civilization

A basic building block of a strong civilization is the family. Put millions of strong families together and you'll have a nation of well-balanced adults that are sustained with love at home and able to blossom as citizens in a commonwealth, working for the highest good for all.

Unfortunately, America is currently shooting itself in the foot, traumatizing small children and their parents by separating them forcefully through corrupt child welfare practices. Families experiencing temporary difficulties could be helped and strengthened, but instead child welfare agents are tearing families apart and even decimating them permanently using Termination of Parental Rights legal proceedings. Children are then farmed out to adopters who receive adoption subsidy money, and if they adopt enough children out, the states receive federal bounty payments per child.

Child welfare agents do this, claiming all the while that they are 'helping children' who end up permanently traumatized. The children are then given medications and become addicted to psychotropic drugs that keep them in line so substitute adult caretakers can handle them.

In other words, folks... AMERICAN CHILD WELFARE IS A SCAM!!! Very few of the children caught up in the system really need to be 'protected' from their parents.

Written by a former judge to expose the injustice and abuses of the child protection industry.

 

Family Rights Videos

The following videos give a bit of depth to the situation. I hope you view them with the insight needed to make wise decisions about child welfare issues in the future.

These videos show that the corruption is wide-spread, throughout many states, if not all. The corruption stems from federal laws providing funding to states and counties when children are removed from their homes and placed in foster care.

Follow the money trail. Where there's money to be had, corruption follows.

The videos are excellent video proof that cannot be refuted. These things have been investigated by numerous news organizations and reporters. Videos of CPS child abductions are piling up on YouTube.

Yes, proof. But who will take action to change the laws that are throttling the joy of families in our country? What politician will protest this onslaught of devastation?

Kentucky social workers - ...destroying families for money.

The proof is here. You will find this level of corruption in many states, not just Kentucky!

Winona Sully said they couldn't come in. They did anyway, and they took her children. Listen to the child tell these officers to treat his mother with more respect!

I'd like to have these officer's names so I could write to them and tell them what I think of their gestapo tactics.

The persecution of Anne Frank's family started with a home invasion aimed at kidnapping the oldest daughter. You can see the same thing is happening now in our country.

Blatant totalitarianism at work.

Shredded Society: States Earn Bonuses & Rewards For Taking Children Away From Their Parents

This loving mother reveals the truth about what happened to her family. Though she's good enough to keep two children, one daughter was taken on false charges and held captive in foster care until the state could terminate her parental rights on the basis that they'd already broken the mother-daughter bond, which in itself is an obvious lie.

      Cps is morally corrupt .They are liars and have only one thing in mind money. They have taken children who were never harmed or abused and removed them and put them in harms way. They want to be seen as saviors and totally abolish parents as someone who provides and cares for their child or children. They haven been given to much power and take power which is never theirs to begin with. We have to take a national stand and take one day were we all fight at every cps office every child welfare agency and stop the corruption. It legalized kidnapping and is overlooked because they have been given to much power but we as the people have rights to stand up and take that power back. We the people of the United States have became terrorist ourselves to our own people. How sick is that we use innocent children for our own sick needs. Cps is no better then child molesters who use them for their own sick needs. We need to set a national day were we fight back. Spread the news like wildfire then and only then will it be stopped.

      CPS is a crooked federal organization. They kidnap children all in the name of money. They are cruel and wicked and need to be investigated and prosecuted for the damage they do to parents and their families. I don't understand why there is not any one organization that will stop all this evil. WHY IS NOT THE PRESIDENT OF THIS UNITED STATES DOING SOMETHING TO CHANGE THIS? We no longer live in a united states. Our Government is evil for not stopping this and letting it happen in the first place. Some day soon the God of the heavens will bring destruction upon all this wickedness and his (God's) government will last forever.

    • cgbroome 4 years ago

      CPS is a business and children are its product it sells - plain and simple. In order to get their "goods" they must destroy families. They don't care and their agents have proven it time and time again. Punkit 1976 states the mentality of CPS when stating that she would rather destroy 100 children than let one DIE. That is a very backwards mentality. She is echoing CPS in the fact that they DON'T care about destroying completely innocent people. The mentality should be that it is better to let 1,000 abusers go free than to convict and destroy one innocent person. However, CPS believes it is better to destroy 10,000 innocent families on the chance that maybe one of those might actually be a case of abuse.

      @anonymous: Step-Parent, you're right, being a CPS agent is nothing to be proud of. I don't know that making the parents broke is a real goal... but they sure don't care if they put unbearable financial stress on people. They like to deal with parents who are not financially able to protect themselves from CPS child snatchings.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      The goal is to breakup the family, period because they can.

    • anonymous 4 years ago

      Im scared for the parents that are being torn apart by those self centered greedy so called children protectors. Most don't have kids and the ones that do, don't care about your kids. They're all for the finance, making the parents broke is the goal. Why else are the kids drinking, doing drugs, jailed, in the nut house, killing themselves or their abusers. All the while those wanna be children protectors smiling all the way to the bank. Yeah, that is something to be very PROUD of.

      My daughter was abducted by the Child Predator Service at age 9 for 18 months. I brought some friends to the secret child custody court for support (local politician, college professors, etc). Their jaws dropped and they were shocked when they saw the disgusting derelict antisocial worker and her manager; they could not believe that CPS would hire such scum, and in a manager position!

      My daughter was a very beautiful, smart, blond/blue little girl so they fabricated the whole flimsy case. My neighbor drank too much one night and came over crying/guilty because some of our neighbors were having meetings trying to figure out what to use to report to CPS to have our daughter removed (..."she is well fed, dressed and cared for ... what can we use?)

      My daughter was sexually abused by both foster parents, locked in a dark room day and night. While in custody court working w/ atty's to get her back got a call from SS worker saying my daughter was in the hospital. She was in critical care for 3 days and had lost most of her body weight from lack of food and water. I sat by her every minute possible, but foster abuser chose to stay with her at night, so I could not (she was afraid my daughter would tell me what they were doing to her). After she was released from the hospital they sent her back to the foster abusers for months before we caught the SS & courts falsifying and bribing red handed. If I complained about foster abuse the SS workers would yell at me (..."Sue is doing the best she can!") and threaten TPR. 13 disabled kids in a small house in Orange, CA? My daughter was not disabled, but now she is. They gave her psych meds.

      My friend was a social worker years ago - she told me about when they were getting rid of good social workers - and bringing in the derelicts - she retired then.

      I know a highly intelligent young man who grew up in Orangewood; he said that kids would come in normal, then they would be given med cocktails that would render them permanently disabled. He sued Orangewood on his own without a lawyer for their abuse of him, and won! The Chief of Children Psych Srvcs for OC had to step down because of all the disabling cocktail drugging of kids in custody several years ago (they gave him another cushy job).

      Cps is needed for some parents treatment, this is just the state of society the socialist govt has created. The power they have been allowed like any other power becomes corrupt. History repeats, what is going on today in American culture is in line with what the Nazis did and Stalin, Remove the family units remove god. When we have a society where good is now bad and bad is now good. God bless us all ... There will be a day to fight back be prepared.

      they are harming the children by traumatizing them by ripping them from the only family they know and who love that child... My baby boy was removed from my home when a warrent was issued for stolen goods my boyfriend had taken I had no knowledge and when i awoke to banging on the door and find officers there. Then came the parafanalia that had appeard over the course of the night before my boyfriend which i found out later had been living another life at night while I was asleep with our precious son. I miss my baby boy i would never ever do drugs and have been wrongly accused.

    No, CPS does more good than harm.

      • anonymous 5 years ago

        I've heard the stories over the years and would probably have said, up until now, they do more harm. We have a family that moved here from another state to get away from CPS. They have posted many stories online as well about how they have been wronged by CPS, the state of Minnesota and their adoptive children. We've gotten to know them. They have a number of biological and adoptive children. They treat the adoptive children terribly. I don't know if there is physical abuse although it really wouldn't surprise me but we have seen many times the emotional abuse. For the first time ever, we are considering calling CPS. Somebody needs to fight for those children otherwise, I suspect, you'll hear about them on the evening news one day.

      • anonymous 6 years ago

        They do infinitely more harm than good. My case is at the next level where they are after me to pay support to my false accuser. The woker (attorney) is so hateful to me and cruel, and now I feel the same way toward her! Some "social work". This I do know, that BEEEEEEP is the sort of chick who would attempt to run for Governor or something, but she'll never get my vote!! Track these abusive public officials as the destroy lives and walk all over people on their way to the top. Lots of politicians have previously been lawyers. The attorney who is attacking me started out as a process server delivering warrants I guess. She's the type to "move up" but I'll never forget that BEEEEEEP and if I catch her running for higher office I'll tell the public everything I know about that sleaze. Be careful who you step on on the way up. You just might meet them on the way down.

        My husband and i live in va , and we too are in a fight for our four children and we can't find any help out here. We are a mixed family with white and hispanic background, Cps gave us a service plan that we have 90 % of it done and still hold our children against their will, So i believe cps is is not here for the family's well being!!!!!

      • punkin1976 7 years ago

        I have watched the videos, yet wonder what part of the story the parents aren't telling.

      • punkin1976 7 years ago

        I looked at the link you posted and one phrase stuck out: ââ¦children on the margin of foster care placement have better employment, delinquency, and teen motherhood outcomes when they remain at home.â

        I believe we may be talking about two different categories of abuse.

      • punkin1976 7 years ago

        The stories you refer me to are sad, yes, and I can't argue against the fact that there are some bad foster parents.

        However, I work with the other side. I supervise visits with parents who have had their children removed. Some do not even know how to communicate with their children without being emotionally damaging. Some don't know how to change a diaper.

        Some don't think they've done anything wrong... yet, when observed, or when I work with them individually, they don't have a clue about how to care for a child.

        Could some of these people that flock to this page thinking that they've been wronged be those people who just can't admit that maybe, just maybe, they need some help?

        The system isn't perfect, but what one is?

        If you can offer suggestions on how to fix it, offer them up. If your only solution is to make CPS look like governmental bullies who do nothing other than "kidnap" children, then you're doing people who really do need help a disservice.

        Some of the families I work with just need some extra resources at their disposal, and that's one of the things that CPS attempts to do, at least in Indiana.

        I get to know parents, and see how they interact with their children. If I think that they're appropriate parents and have gained the skills necessary to have their children returned to them, I will fight tooth and nail and side with them, let them in on the little secrets that CPS may not tell them...

        However, most of the time I see children that need to be out of the home for a period, at least until their parents get themselves together. I love to see successful reunifications, but some families just can't be fixed.

      • punkin1976 7 years ago

        While it would be my wish that no child would ever need to be removed from his or her home of birth (although I would be out of a job, it would certainly be a much better world), it happens, and more likely than not, they were removed for a reason.

        I want to be able to trust that all parents are looking out for their children's best interests, but so often I see parents who say that they are, but they are not. I witness this first-hand, as I work with families in crisis and who have been referred through DCS for a myriad of reasons.

        Children are resilient, more resilient than either you or I would think.

        I would like to know where you got your statistic of more children dying in foster homes than in their own homes, and what that is based upon.

      • punkin1976 7 years ago

        As a Social Worker who works closely with CPS on a daily basis, this lens disturbs me.

        What about the children who are not pulled and die because nothing could be substantiated, although everyone knew that something harmful was going on?

        I would rather have 100 children pulled from their homes unnecessarily than have one child DIE because of fear of detaining them.

      • anonymous 7 years ago

        whatever people...if CPS was all that bad, why when I was trying to be a vindictive teenager and said my parents were awful etc...when they came to talk to me, they found out the truth...that I was a lying vindictive teenager and my family never heard from them ever.

        H*LL Yes! instead of giving an accused "abuser" (I use that word very lightly and tongue in cheek) help in the home to turn around a "bad" situation that might or might be producing a risk of harm a CPS worker just yanks children for the federal money and then a parent most of the time fights until a Termination of parental rights hearing which most lose even in appeals courts (if the parents' appeals are not blocked like mine were). CPS was made to give families help to prevent foster care now it is used to gather as many kids for the federal incentive money.

          Been involved for 5 years almost. Go to the dshs web site for your area. Click on Forms and find requests for records.

          ie: www1.dshs.wa.gov also do a search engine on dshs intranet. What I have discovered is priceless and keeps CPS running scared. Due to graduate as a paralegal and take my fight up a notch. Go to the manuals listed in the children's administration. Call CPS on their policies and operations violations not to mention the violations on laws RCW's and WAC's. DO A FAIR HEARING some workers have been fired for not doing their jobs right.

          I believe CPS is the most corrupt, government subsidized baby-stealing racket imaginable. Children who are attractive are coveted, CPS colludes with the so-called foster parent, money is exchanged all around, adoption follows. There is nothing there indicating that the natural parents did anything wrong at all but many lies are told and false conclusions drawn. CPS is racist, prejudiced against poor people, and completely illegal. Stealing children to sell for profit is not in the best interest of anybody except CPS with their pockets full of ill-gotten gains. How much denial does it take to pretend they are doing the children a favor?

          We need to find a way to stop the unlicenced social workers, volunteer guardian ad litem. The reason these workers want the children adopted by fostercare is that the state, county workers, and foster parents each get a bonus when the adoption is final. Don't forget that the new adopted family get a check each month between $500.00 to $1500.00 a month.

          I have been fighting for custody of my grandchild since october 2006 still no luck I saw my grandchild once for 1 hour supervised of course. If anyone has any suggestions pleas let me know..

          In Nov. 2005 my kids were taken for allegations made against me. Not my husband. My daughter's bio "dad" who met her for the first time when she was 8 1/2 (she is 12 now) and his wife decided that they wanted her. His sister-in-law is a social worker. My son was 5 and had never spent a night without at least one of us was left in a foster home without even his sister who was removed from the foster home 7 days after being taken and sent to live with "dad". CPS wanted to close the case on her and let him keep her but keep the case on my son. We fought them every step of the way but did what they wanted us to do after our "trial". 9 months later our kids came home. An attorney that was supposed to file a civil suit for us told me how lucky we were because after reading our papers, they weren't going to give my son back. I figured that out when I was getting papers together for the attorney. 3 years later, how hard it is to get thru some days.Post tramatic stress.They need to be stopped.

          I am trying to go through the motions of closing my case, but to be honest, I know all they want is to keep you in the system for as long as they can. I loooooovvveeee my kids to death and everyone around me will tell you...there is not a thing that I would not do for my chilldren and anyone else's. CPS has truly made me feel like the lowest person on the planet with their accusations and misleading ways. I am hurt that my children and I have to go through this, I am trying to keep faith in god that he will see me and my babies through this. ALL OF YOU ARE IN MY PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS....

          My grandchildren have been taken from my daughter because she caught her husband molesting her daughter. What we learned since is the most horrible thing ever. He was abusing all 3 of his girls with not one person seeing signs of abuse including his family. CPS has now taken my grandchildren from my daughter saying she had knowledge and did nothing about it. She never knew this was happening and no proof of it, she is an awesome mother and it has only been a month since this has happened, the girls have been gone for just 3 wks and CPS is already trying to take all of the rights to them away from my daughter. See saw them this afternoon and my youngest granddaughter won't even talk and the oldest one is yanking her teeth out of her mouth. Courtdate is April 6th and we need all of the help we can get...any ideas please let me know!!!!! Thank you!!!

          [in reply to jamie] Hello jamie, I know the heart tearing you are going through. You must hire a good private attorney (not just a court appointed attorney, after all who is paying them-they will not do more than a 9-5 job if that). Maybe you can work with an attorney on drawing up custody papers for you to have your children returned. Be careful CPS is gathering information while you are in cooperation with them. This information will be used against you later in court.

          My girls were kidnapped from me. The investigator failed to investigate, he threatened me into signing his "safety" plan. He told me "If you don't sign it, I'll get the judge to order it" giving me no realistic alternative. Abuse of his power, he has lied, left out exculpatory evidence, the caseworker has lied, is bias, our 4th and 14th amendment rights violated, parental rights, and children's right. Our case started because of one fight my boyfriend and I got into. It has been ruled in federal court unconstitutional to remove children solely on domestic violence, unconstitutional to force separation of children from the non offending parent, and so on!!! CPS must be stopped.

          I have had CPS called on me by my ex for vengeful purposes. Nothing came of it so far they have left me alone. I know a woman that has had 4 foster kids at a time and the time she had the 4 kids plus her own child in a parked car sleeping (I hope) while she proceeded to take off her shirt and expose herself for some drunk guys across the street, she is a married "christian" woman. I was really surprised and reminded her that her kids were in the car. She responded, they are asleep She never did anything else weird like that but she is a really young, 22 at the time, and just not mature enough for foster kids.

          I wish that some of you who come to complain her would have the guts to tell your WHOLE story because I simply do not believe that DHS/CPS has to make busy work for themselves. No foster care is not the ideal place you children. So maybe think about that before you even have kids, especially if you are too needy or f 'ed up to take care of then. Babies are not toys. And unlike puppies you can't just return them to the shelter. Do make sure you can keep a roof over your kids head(s) and keep a house clean and buy food regularly. Buy diapers BEFORE beer (or crack). THINK before the next time you do dope. Or before you move a new "daddy" into your house the day after you meet him. Before you let new "daddy" babysit while you go to work. CPS does not just show up to your house because they are having a "slow day". I am sure there are false accusations, but I suspect that most off the time including some of the cases posted here there is more to the story that the family is tellin

          You have a poll: Yes or No -does CPS do more harm than good?

          I think the question is wrong.

          How can we protect our families and our children?

          These set ups occur because somewhere, someone, identifies a need, an injustice, etc. Unfortunately the solutions many times create a life of their own and lose sight of its real purpose: To Protect - everything else is by the way, and protection has to work for our children and our families.

          Now, I have seen tremendous injustices to many people, but have also seen horrible things done to kids. All I can say, although I doubt if the money people would agree, is that each case (and the word case should be changed to each person) should be "helped"on individual merits. In other words, not as a statistic, but as people. Finally excessive power by whomever (could be a guardian or an official) is a no-no, cause the reasoning behind any action is no longer the reason for the action, and the action becomes the reason. (I hope that makes sense)

Going to lensroll to Sarah: the Suicide of a Child and maybe a couple of related lenses. Police and fire officials are held accountable for their actions. Social workers aren't liable for the damage they cause, and their superiors protect them. They are conveniently on vacation or off if a lawyer wants to call one to a hearing.

          @anonymous: I will tell you the truth. My 2 children were taken from me 6 years ago because of domestic violence and drug use. i needed help and i knew it, cps didn't offer me any help they just came and took my children. i screwed up and didn't do what they wanted me to do for 3 years. my daughter was adopted out after 1 1/2 years in the system.it took me 3 years to wake up and do what they wanted me to do. i know i was wrong, i should have done something sooner.but instead i sunk deeper ino my drug use. my son was not adoptable. so he has been to sevral different boys home, placed on seraquel- all that does is knock you out. He shouldn't even be in the system. when cps came to me my son was living at my parents house, enrolled in school by my mom and all his stuff was at her house. so why did he get put in the system? i don't know. so i finally do what cps wants. I have been clean and sober now for 3 years in july, have a home for 2 1/2 years now and have been at my job for almost 3 years. but is my son home with me? nope. now they are telling me its because of my sons behavior. its now my son who has to do something and behave. you know what? thats b.s. let me deal with my son. now i just found some of my sons email and he is doing drugs. i told the boys home, cps worker and social worker for his house. are they doing anything about it? nope. they say they don't see any signs of it. now me and my son are having problems and he has learned he is old enough now to use the courts to his benefit.so i feel like im fighting another battle again by myself. a loseing battle;. there is no reason he shouldn't be at home with me. my god its been 3 years ive been living a clean and sober and stable life, and he still isn't home. don't know what to do or where to turn. don't want to give up. i have came to far. but it seems like im fighting a loseing battle. if anyone can suggest what i should do or where i can get help PLEASE email me. dwyatt2009@yahoo.com. thanks.

          Would any news media be interested in doing a story on Child Protection Services corruption within the United States.? I live in Sumner County, Tennessee. Child and Protective Services has presented to the courts false whiteness testimony from so called interviews with my daughter. This information will be used against me in court. Child and Protective Services has used evidence fabrication by reporting to the judge threw case files, that I am stalking my own attorney, the CPS staff, and the foster mother, when in fact I have not!

          This is happening across America and needs to be stopped. The lying in courts, and coercing childrenâs testimony in written documents and forensic tapes, in order to allow courts to have children removed from their parentâs custody, needs to be stopped! I know MSNBC did a Documentary called Which Hunt that exposed some of this, but was said to be a problem twenty years ago, it is still going on today!

          This is what Senator Nancy Schaefer fought against before she died. She tried to shut them down all together. This is corruption at its highest level and should not be accepted here in America! Is there nothing that anyone can do? To stand by and watch the injustices done to children and families is reprehensible.

          My daughter's children were removed from her home july 2011. They were removed because she let her sister and brother-in-law stay there after returning back from another state and had no place to go. The Sheriff's dept and DEA had been watching her sister and brother-in-law for drugs (meth). There was a big arrest made for the drugs in another town. My daughter had recently kicked out her sister and brother-in-law but all their belongings remained in my daughter's basement. which did include an empty camping propane cylinder some foil and i believe it said salt. At the time of the arrest they had CPS, DEA and sherriff's go to my daughters home and remove all the children and take them to the hospital for testing. NO meth was found in any of their systems. My daughter and her fiancée were also tested nothing was found in them either. Now Cps has my grandchildren. For the past year they have been making my daughter and her fiancée jump through hurdles to get their children back and she has been compliant with everything they have asked her to do. drug and alcohol classes, seeing a psychiatric dr. and any time they want urine or hair folical tests they have done it. Now in court because the charges of meth didn't stick they are telling her she is emtionally unstable because of depression!! Well of course the woman is depressed they have her children!! They have papers filled with nothing but lies. They are now telling my daughter she is not participating and speaking out in her classes and because of that they feel she is mentally unstable. My daughter has always been a very quiet person and doesn't speak a lot. I remember her 1st grade report card she was held back because of not speaking up in class. We had the children for a little over a week and my husband got the CPS worker mad because he told her from then on all her calls were going to be recorded because we caught her in a bunch of lies. The day we went to court and were given custody of the children we had gotten absolutely no court paperwork or any other paperwork from CPS. Well my daughter and her fiancée loaded up their vehicle and brought over the baby's high chair, her breathing machine, her toys and some clothes. We were yelled at by CPS because they didn't authorize a visit. I didn't know I needed their permission to let my daughter in my home, we had gotten nothing from them. CPS removed the children from us. Here it is almost a year later and my daughter still does not have her children. The oldest child now keeps talking about suicide so they placed her in a state Home for teen. What they are doing to these children is abuse if you ask me. It really stinks for people that don't have the money to hire a good attorney.
