Child welfare system corrupt

Solano County child welfare services needs to be investigated.

The basic building block of a strong country is family virtue. Put millions of strong families together and you’ll have a nation of well-balanced adults who are sustained with love at home and are able to blossom as American citizens in a common wealth, working for the highest good for all.

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

This is appalling! Is this a legal way to sell children in America?

Child welfare agents do this, claiming all the while 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 care givers can handle them. Is this really necessary?

Very few children caught up in the system really need to be protected from their parents/family members. Instead, there should be laws to protect them from child welfare agencies.

Will this hypocrisy ever end?

    The author of this letter is correct. The corruption in the child services branch of government is astounding and shocking. A recent effort by lawlessamerica.com has been working to expose this.

    It even mentions child slave auctions. The Franklin Cover-up by John DeCamp. In the 80s they were kidnapping Newspaper Delivery Boys and putting them into slave pedophile networks. Children were also delivered through the Foster Care network. These examples were from Nebraska. See the book...Why Johnny can't come home.

    Absolutely correct. And each year we have a national adoption month when they sell out the old and make room for the new. Big business.

    Yes, it's true. The child welfare system all across America has turned into a corrupt evil machinery of sorts, motivated by funds that are re-imbursed to the states, when families sign-up, volunteer or are court ordered for services. Most beneficial to the state is the child removals which are discretionary decisions put in the hands of some foreign national quota, I'm so happy to be in America and have a county job type supervisor...that all that is really happening is that our country is being destroyed family by family, with a system of two corrupt components. One DCFS workers who are given police like powers to remove children at whim, without court orders and without proper training to do so. Most often the rights of parents are violated in all cps cases. There is no such thing as due process, which is the second corrupt component...the legal tree, the court appointed attorneys across this nation who's only job seems to be to intentionally throw all parents into a DCFS case, no matter innocent or not. Parental rights are being violated, children are being stolen from grandparents, siblings, fit parents...all because of the money they generate...

    Not just in that county, it's here in Tuolumne County as well. Check the statistical information for California and Tuolumne County has the highest rate of children being taken by CPS and adoptions!

    Oh look....posters who are new to the DR website. How dare the county terminate parental rights when the Mom has been arrested several times for drug offenses, the home is filthy, and the 3-4 year olds are left alone in the home while Mom is having a good time.

    This is happening to one of my grandson's right now. It isn't just those kids who might better somewhere. They won't even allow my grandson to live with me (other than to say. "He is emotionally too fragile.". Yet, I am more qualified professionally and have notre experience than those who care for him. Thank you to those who have exposed the system and the contacts for those who can help me fight for that little 7yr old boys rights.

    You need to understand that while some good comes the system there is twice as much bad coming from it. I speak from what I have actually, not heard or read but seen, when I say that they are missing more kids that actually need protection then they are helping. "the law is a gun aimed to shoot a crow. For every shot made and missed is bound to kill an eagle." Protect our children doesnt mean take them from our love. It means protect those children that arent loved correctly. Or at least thats what it should mean.

    And how dare cps initiate the death of a father by trying to force his child away from him (with a court order) because some cop smelled what he thought was marijuana. That man is dead, shot in his home, and they found nothing not in the autopsy and not in his house. He was killed while trying to protect his child. Or how about the seven year old in foster care over medicated who committed suicide AT SEVEN.or perhaps you can explain to the parents who had their daughter removed because the father smoked pot and she ended up dead in foster care....explain to him how they were protecting the child's best interest. The list goes on and on of the atrocities and monstrosities committed by the careless over zealous cover your own arse agency's that pretend to have a child's best interest at the forefront. The first and foremost thought on their minds is to recreate the definition of abuse and neglect so that the agency can remove a child and receive money, without making sure they 're actual protecting our children.

    So here's the problem, if we don't protect the kids they get abused or grow up to rob and/or kill somebody because we weren't watching. If we do protect the kid, we are being over-protective and not allowing them to "grow" which leads us right back to item number one. To those of us that have successfully raised our kids, that seems very simple but apparently by today’s rules, not so much. I’m going to go out on a limb and suggest that if you or someone you know has had their kid taken away, then you or they screwed up. And I’ll go a little further…it is my opinion that one of you screwed up royally because CPS does not just drop in and load up kids for “no reason.” This is the blame game on a repeating cycle and is proving denial of accountability and responsibility. Get educated and wise up take care of your kids and you/we/they won’t have so many problems.

    Cd you need to check the stats of kids who age out if foster care. 85% end up in jail or prison...and that's WITH taxpayers funding them with billions a year. With the amount of money put into this system these kids should all be coming out with masters degrees. No one denies kids need to be protected. But when you have a govt agency that operates unto COMPLETE secrecy with billion in their budget each year are you going to try to tell me you wont have corruption?

    But these kids are coming from homes that have either drugs, alcoholism, violence, etc. They are more prone to have behavioral problems simply because of their home lives. Going into foster care did not cause these kids to end in prison more often. It was the parents that did not provide a stable healthy environment. I know you are going to say that kids are being taken for no reason but I don't believe that. There are reasons, maybe you just don't want to face them.

    Really lil? Lois Henry in bakersfield who oversees cps when cps takes the kids. "Now I KNOW" you're going to say oh but that's just one incident. Again...really? Now search for her follow up "signs of improvement in child protective services" When cps was REQUIRED to follow the law the intake of children dropped in half. And mind you that was just a six month period so the number will be even more next year. And since Mr. Mcmillian is aggressively taking them on in federal court both LA and ORANGE have followed suit. Mulitiply that number by every county in every state in this nation and I'm sure that you will see that taxpayers have been bilked out of billions. No one is saying that children dont need protection. But when you give ANY Govt agency the power to operate in complete secrecy with absolutely NO accountability or oversight again...anyone who thinks you aren't going to have corruption is just living in la la land

    Kathi, I will never deny the possibility of corruption in any governmental organization. My argument was to taking children out of a home for “no good reason.” There must be circumstances and/or behavior we are not privy to. I simply cannot accept these examples as presented to be accurate representations.

    It's not just Solano County, nor Tuolumne County it is also Sacramento County. Our children and grandchildren are sold into bondage and speaking to the courts is futile. Courts accept recommendations from the people who will financially benefit from keeping a child in bondage. A Great Grandmother who want to raise a great-grandson, giving him a chance to stay out of jail for the rest of his life.

    People! This is happening across the nation!!! Not just your county here in California. The general public is blinded to the fact because the system is masked behind "the best interest of the child". After people are labeled as unfit parents or as deadbeats, they have no voice. The only way to be heard is as one. You are far from alone. This all to common and is now known as the norm. for families that split. Search for us on facebook. Govabuse or any CPS or Family court corruption search will lead you to us or others.

    Mr. Paul Darling has obviously seen or experienced enough of this light to pull him out of the dark. I didn't believe or think about any of this until I became a entangled in the chaos. To prove his point, I spent 3 years trying to figure out what I did to loose my children. I hate the answer, I did nothing wrong! Ill now how 4 hours a month with my kids to be a "dad". My kids and I now suffer PAS and I from full blow PTSD (google it if needed). This is not a conspiracy theory. Its real!

    All anyone has to do is look at www.bakersfield.com and search for Lois Henry. This woman has done in 6montha (along with shawn mcmillian)what I have tried to do for 15years. Clearly politicians aren't going to do anything because of the funding involved. Lois exposed the corruption and it was the fact that now the people knew and kerns county council agreed to fix the problem. Once that policy was put in place (warrantless removal of children)kerns intake dropped by 50% in a six month period. Social workers feel they have unlimited power to do whatever they like...because they do!! This policy, if enacted by EVERY cps agency nationwide it would solve fifty percent of the problems. I am currently going to each and every county supervisor and publicly advising them that they need to follow suit and make social workers follow the law. And trying to get people to cover certain counties and do the same. If the politicians want to continue ignoring this problem those counties will be exposed to the people at the hunger strike at the Capitol that occurs twice a year for 30days. It is not the politicians that will solve this problem. They have known about it for 20years and done NOTHING. I spent 40days at the Capitol last year and the people were not happy with the stats they saw and were even LESS happy with the media since they refused to cover it. Why? Because they would have to tell the public the truth about this agency, that being our govt has bilked the taxpayers out of billions each year attempting to make them believe that these poor abused children had to be protected. Kern stats show that they have been removing children for years that never should have been, all at taxpayers expense. Whoever likened this to penn state AND the Catholic church is correct. And history shows that when those with money and power try to cover up the abuse of children just to KEEP their money and power eventually it will blow up. Its that time for cps.
