Kidnapping for Profit by Child Protective Services

The wisdom, and the understanding of human nature evidenced by our Founding Fathers in their statement in the Declaration of Independence: “Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed” continues to shine forth.
I receive requests from all over the country asking what to do about various problems. The most common request concerns the Child Protective Services, (CPS) or as Utah calls it, the Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS).
Federal Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer ordered the Illinois Department of Family Services to redesign their entire program because their investigations of child abuse and neglect had too many false accusations. She judged the system to be unconstitutional because they threatened people with removal of their children unless the parents cooperate with every whim issued by DCFS. Judge Pallmeyer said this tactic was extortion, which is a felony. Utah uses exactly the same tactics. This is no different that Al Caponeâ€™s protection racket of the 1920’s â€“ do what I want or I will destroy your business.
The favorite malady that DCFS uses to take away children is called Munchausenâ€™s Syndrome by Proxy, It is interesting to note that the Irish Examiner, in a story on Wednesday, January 21, 2004, titled, “Theory puts â€˜5,000â€™ in care,” had this to say about Munchausenâ€™s Syndrome by Proxy and Professor Meadow who created the Syndrome.
“It is estimated that 5,000 British children may have been taken into care over the past 15 years as a result of Professor Meadowâ€™s theory of Munchausenâ€™s Syndrome by Proxy. The theory that some mothers harm their children to draw attention to themselves has been largely discredited as a result of a series of high-profile court cases.
Prof Meadow’s theory has been discredited as a result of three cases in which he gave evidence of women who were wrongly accused of killing their children.
Prof Meadow is now facing an inquiry by the General Medical Council into allegations of serious professional misconduct.
The attorney general Lord Goldsmith is now examining a further 250 criminal cases involving Munchausen’s Syndrome by Proxy to see if more mothers may have been wrongly convicted.”
The purported mental “disease” does not exist and the Doctor that created the problem is losing his license. But DCFS doesn’t care, because it’s not about the children, it’s about money.
Thatâ€™s right, the Money.
According to an article in the Charlotte World by Angie Vineyard, the DCFS receives $4,000 for every child they place in their system. They get even more money if the child can be shown to be Special Needs. Ruling the child to have “Attention Deficit” qualifies the state for an increase in funding.
An investigation by The LA Daily News found that up to half of the 75,000 children in the California system and adoptive homes were needlessly placed in a system that is often more dangerous than their own homes because of financial incentives in state and federal laws. These laws, according to state documents, encourage counties and their private contractors to earn money by placing and keeping children in foster care. The county receives $30,000 to $150,000 in state and federal revenues annually for each child placed.
DCFS has a long history of judgment lapses and scandal. According to Angie Vineyard in the Charlotte World, the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has placed so many children for adoption that the US Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson gave them an award for “collaborating with the court system, mental health providers, the General Assembly, churches, business and private citizens and for doubling the number of special needs children adopted from the foster care system in just six years.” This all adds up to more money.
Troy Anderson of the LA Daily News reports Anthony Cavuoti, a DCFS social worker for 14 years, said the department does a poor job of protecting children.
“The nominal goal is to protect children, but the real goal is to make money,” he said. “A caseworker used to have 80 to 100 cases. If the workers put kids before paperwork and administration, they are going to be forced out or harassed. With such a mentality, children are always in danger.”
In Massachusetts, Anderson Consulting and Public Consulting Groups have been hired to “maximize federal revenue”. The companies have brought the state an additional 90 million a year. Thatâ€™s 90 million tax dollars awarded for pulling children out of one home and placing them with another.
The problem is much deeper than that.
EVERY CHILD WHO HAS EVER BEEN REMOVED FROM THE HOME OF ITS PARENTS HAS BEEN KIDNAPPED UNDER THE COLOR OF LAW.
As proof of that statement I offer the following:
There is no person anywhere on earth that has the inherent right to take a child away from its parents. I canâ€™t do it. You canâ€™t do it. And neither can your neighbors or friends.
If nobody has that power and authority, and, if We, the People, are the ones who give the government its power and authority, then â€“
WHERE DOES THE GOVERNMENT THINK IT GETS THE POWER AND THE RIGHT TO TAKE KIDS AWAY FROM THEIR PARENTS?
The government knows it does not have the power and the authority. The many well educated lawyers are not dumb about the Constitution â€“ they donâ€™t care, because of the money that can be made. To heck with the kids, the parents, and the Constitution.
This situation is a ticking time bomb.
Eventually the people will reach the point our Founders Fathers described and demand redress for the unconstitutional actions that have been perpetrated against them by the government.
There isnâ€™t enough money in the world to pay for the pain and suffering. And, itâ€™s not just the parents and the kids who have suffered, itâ€™s the grandparents, the aunts, the uncles, and the cousins.
Most of the children may be just returned to their parents, but what about the thousands who have been killed by abusive foster parents? What about the unlawful adoptions? The adoptive parents will now want redress, along with all of their extended families.
Who knows where this will go, or where it might end up.
