California Columnist Exposes Corrupt Practices of Child Protection Services

California Columnist Exposes Corrupt Practices of Child Protection Services:

California is one of the few states in the U.S. that has passed legislation to try and pierce through the cloak of secrecy surrounding Child Protection Social Service agencies. In 2008 California passed Senate Bill 39, which gave the public a chance to review how well — or poorly — child protective services did its job prior to a child’s death while in foster care.
Columnist Lois Henry of The Bakersfield Californian reported how “the State Department of Social Services planned to sneak a measure into a budget trailer bill that would have increased secrecy regarding the deaths of children who die of abuse or neglect” while in the care of CPS. Lois Henry does a good job explaining how CPS is all about hiding their practices and protecting themselves, instead of protecting children.

Kids pay the price: Turning foster care into a billion dollar business

Kids pay the price: Turning foster care into a billion dollar business | News Day:

The Facebook post linked to charges of “deaths, sex abuse, and blunders in screening, training, and overseeing foster parents at the nation’s largest for-profit foster care company.” My first reaction was disbelief: a for-profit foster care company? I remember my own days as a foster parent of teenagers, and the financial and emotional challenges of caring for them. How could a company make money on foster care? And why would anyone think it’s a good idea to place kids with a company whose purpose is to make money from them?

CPS Corruption Has To Be Stopped | Help Fight CPS Child Protective Services:
(Old but very informative)

© Nev Moore Jan. ‘02
In 1974 Walter Mondale initiated CAPTA (the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act), the legislation that began feeding federal funding into the state’s child welfare agencies. With remarkable foresight Mondale expressed concerns that the legislation could lead to systemic abuse in that the state agencies might over-process children into the system unnecessarily to keep, and increase, the flow of federal dollars. Shortly after CAPTA was enacted there was a dramatic increase in the number of children in foster care, peaking at around 500,000 during the mid-70’s. George Miller, the Chairman of the federal Select Committee on Children, Youth, and Families, initiated an intensive investigation of the nation’s foster care system after the effects of CAPTA started to become apparent by the soaring numbers of children who were being placed in foster care. An official at the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare admitted to Miller that the government had no idea where many of the nation’s 500,000 foster children where living, what services they were receiving, if any, or if any efforts were being made to reunite them with their families.

For example, just recently a family in Arkansas saw their seven children kidnapped by state authorities and a search warrant served upon their private property because the father owned a common mineral supplement called "MMS."

    Former Foster Parent Exposes How CPS Kidnaps Kids Away from Good Homes – Puts them on Drugs

    Former Foster Parent Exposes How CPS Kidnaps Kids Away from Good Homes – Puts them on Drugs:

    I became a foster parent with the intentions of putting a roof over the heads of orphaned children. I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
    By the time I completed the training process, I understood that the majority of the children that would be entering my home were not orphans. I was brainwashed into believing the children had come from abusive and neglectful homes. I was told the state had rescued them from horrible living environments and that I was somewhat of a hero for taking them in.
    They were all lies. It took several years for me to truly see what I had become a part of.
    Child Protective Services was stealing children from loving biological families.

    The court room halls rang with cheers and clapping as Melissa Diegel entered the halls for her contempt trial. With armed guards at bay, entrance to the courtroom was denied except for Melissa, the girls’ father or anyone directly involved in the case of the Diegel sisters, Hannah and Kayla…. After refusing to enter the courtroom alone for fear of her life, and after much deliberation, Judge McNally finally agreed that an advocate could enter the courtroom with Melissa. Shortly after, they both returned to the hallway as Judge McNally issued a warning as well to the advocate who went in with Melissa …that any “reporting by her as well could result in a contempt of court charge against her, and that she also, could face jail time.” Although they did not take Melissa today…this is, I’m sure, far from over…. With more than 20 witnesses at hand, justice was, once again, denied to a family who has suffered at the hands of a corrupt DCS and Maricopa County judicial system…. Daphne Ball

    Will the new government be the final nail in the coffin for child welfare?:

    With the Conservatives returning to power this month, their continued focus on fiscal austerity will mean more government spending cuts on state-provided services. Child welfare has already been badly hit by drastic cuts to the family justice and social work sectors in a bid to reduce government debt. Will this second round of austerity measures irreparably damage our child welfare system, or will it be the wake up call we need to work together to protect children’s fundamental human rights and the democratic process?

    Successful Actor and Teacher is Denied the Right to Parent His Own Children Because He Is Blind:

    The right of the natural parent to the care and custody of his or her child is considered a fundamental right in the United States.

The judge, in this case, would insert “able” and in particular “sighted” in front of “natural parent.” “No vision, no children” sums up the Court’s decision, upturning decades of civil rights progress and common sense.

    Feds Pay for Drug Fraud: 92 Percent of Foster Care, Poor Kids Prescribed Antipsychotics Get Them for Unaccepted Uses | Art Levine:
