I’m very familiar with this having worked with a group that defends parent rights against the abuses of the schools, CPS, etc. Here in Utah we now have a law that requires the CPS to apply for a warrant... case workers no longer can take kids on their own.
The abuses are staggering. Children have been taken for no other reason than to fill beds. At one time every child taken by the State was evaluated by a shrink and 100% of them were declared mentally ill and placed on drugs. I’s swear that some of these CPS case workers destroy families just for fun.
The worst case I can recall seeing was one where a family court judge took a newborn infant from a mother who had a past abuse “allegation”... not conviction. Then the judge took a leave of absence and adopted the baby herself!
Much of our data on CPS abuse came from people who had quit the agency in disgust. Case after case where a CPS worker found no abuse, but the higher ups overruled the worker and took the kids.
THE CPS gets thousands of dollars for every child they can adopt out. This explains why they do what they do, much like the school victimize boys with the ADHD scam so they can get more federal dollars. It’s a money machine and tailor made for some sociopath to use his/her govt office to wreak havoc on society.
This can all happen because marriage and family law has been reclassified from civil law to social policy. Marriage and family themselves are now deemed components of government programs rather than sacred and constitutionally protected private institutions. It’s all quite unconstitutional in fact, but the federal government wanted to unconstitutionally take over marriage and family law and convert it into a multi-billion dollar pork barrel scheme. Because they were spreading so much money around, the federal courts reclassified to social policy to allow it rather than declaring the federal intrusion arbitrary and unconstitutional as they should have.
No tinfoil hat. One of the chief instigators of the child abuse legislation, IIRC, was Patsy Schroeder, who came in with the huge Dem surge in Congress following Watergate...
They should each be issued a toy steamroller (to represent what happens to families) with the words "Good Intentions Paving Company" on the side.
NO cheers, unfortunately.
