CPS Should Be Replaced by Law Enforcement

Guest Post by Ruthie

I was in law enforcement for many years and I can tell you that CPS was never respected during my years of service and we would do everything possible to take care of a situation without involving them.

I know that reporting laws changed somewhat, which has just encouraged people to use CPS to get even with or harass someone. CPS should be run by law enforcement not a bunch of holier than thou social workers who have absolutely no common sense.

It is extremely easy to make false allegations against someone anonymously, or in a recent case I am aware of, the caller presented herself first as a neighbor ( she lives over a thousand miles away from the intended “victim”), then presented herself as a school official, and then presented herself as a law enforcement officer. And she has even used her “friends” to call so the it appears others have the same concerns.

Obviously there is no attempt to verify the identity callers, so the abuse of the system goes unchecked.

CPS workers are trained to lie and twist words and statements to suit their needs and to justify their actions, and the judges who supposedly are listening to these charges in court, never question anything, taking every lie and exaggeration as fact – which makes them just as guilty as the social workers in these unjustified cases.

CPS is not about protecting children, it is about punishing parents!

Social workers believe they are above the law and even when the court order things, they decide if and when they will do it.

Heaven help anyone trying to get family members out of foster care and into their homes.

I am aware of a lady who has been trying for 6 months to get her relatives into her home; she has been lied to, ignored, and has been running around in circles trying to deal with these people, not to mention the money she spent to make sure everything is exactly how “they” want it; yet, they change workers on her and everyone new has something else they want her to change before giving her the children.

It’s been a nightmare for her, and they always say they are just doing what is best for the children and their goal is always to get the children with family.

All evidence to the contrary!!

This lady should have been given the children immediately when they were taken, according to the attorney she now has, and hopefully the attorney can get this taken care of, because one poor little old lady on her own can not penetrate the lawlessness, lies and redundancy of this agency.

The obvious solution to this is to do away with CPS as a social worker agency and turn it over to local law enforcement. And insist that judges require proof of accusation and not just hear-say garbage.

    I was recently assaulted by a dhs worker with my one year old in arms.phisicaly struck in the head and shoulders more than three times.As the worker assaulted me she left my six year old in her car parked in the middle of a two lane road. I flagged traffic so they would see car. Dhs then drove back to town with my six year old and falsely reported that I had lept from the moving automobile. We were in unfamiliar woods off course of where we were suppose arrive I had only lived in the town five weeks and clearly stated that I wasn’t familiar with road. I walked back to town a third or half of a mile and could not speek from lack of breath when arrested for child endangerment.

      Jillyan, would a lie detector help? The caseworker sounds imbalanced. Anyone who would do that to a parent should be fired. If you can get a lie detector test showing that you’re the truth-teller you could send those results to the county personnel department. But first, try to find a lawyer to represent you and advise you.

    My premature twins were taken from me by DHS almost 14 years ago. One of my babies developed a swollen finger which turned out to be a finger fracture. After a body scan, the doctors claimed that he had other fractures in his legs as well. Both of my children were examined for shaken baby syndrome and were shown not to have been injured in that way. Which brings me to an important question that has haunted me for years. How could the doctor’s not dig deeper into what caused his bone problems when there was no shaken baby syndrome to be found? Tell me how a small, fragile and premature human-being could have multiple fractures from multiple occasions (as the doctor’s had claimed), but not have any signs of shaken baby syndrome? Where was the commonsense? I was a stay at home mom at the time my children were taken from me and I have been tormented for years by the questions…What happened to my child? Why did the doctor’s believe that he had been abused when I know that he was not? Just last year (May,2013),I read a new FDA warning put out about the drug Magnesium Sulfate. I was put on an IV of that drug continuously for 23 days while in the hospital for premature labor. The FDA statement tells medical professionals not to use the drug for premature labor and if they use it for other uses, they are told not to use it on pregnant women for more than 5-7 days because the drug is known to cause thin bones (osteopenia) and fractures in the baby. If anyone knows anything about osteopenia, they will know that it takes the bones quite a while to recover after the body is given the proper nutrients. The sick part for me, is that according the FDA article, the research on this topic goes back before my children were taken and so, doctor’s knew of this possibility. For those with questions about why one child had the bone problems, but other did not, the research attached to the FDA article shows that that this happens. We are all individuals, and the environment were are exposed to both in and out of the womb affects us all differently. I am haunted by the ghosts of my children that live out there somewhere without me and whom I may never know.

    Your comments about CPS and the inadequacy of Social Workers is absolutely correct. The system cannot prevent the death of children at the hands of their parents.The agency has responded to parental campaigns against high-handedness by drawing the criteria for removal and termination of parental rights so tightly that there are no effective preventative measures and children are killed on a daily basis. They now have employees who review child deaths to determine if the agency followed their legal mandates when a death occurs. These are quite busy and there other purpose is to serve as sacrificial scapegoats and being blamed by the police element of HEW for the actions of murderous parents.
    A reasonable solution would be to abandon useless symbolism, stop blaming the unenvolved and eliminate children and family service agencies, and treat child abuse as a serious crime- a capitol crime in the case of murder. This would eliminate the offending parent and a few of the potential perpetrators might get the message.

    What should really change is the bogus CPS law? Why in California can an ex gay porn star file bogus charges against you, take all you own and your kids for fun plus profit with only a slap on the wrist?? Why because CPS can do whatever they want with no recourse. It has too change because, I know these people will not pay benefits or restitution all they care about is screwing someone over for profit. Well I hope they enjoy hell because, they cannot profit with corruption there.

    I am currently in search of a attorney to represent me in protecting my nieces nephews and to help return them to a safe and loving home. I was their voluntary caregiver from February 18 2014 till April 2 2014. They were removed from the foster parents and I was chosen to be their caregiver. They were enrolled in school and were stable and happy. Then the Ad Litem for the children came to my home to speak with the children the day before there was a court hearing for cps to request for custody of all 4 of the kids. I have a 3 bedroom 2 bath home and a safe and loving environment for them to live. Just because I am a disability from and accident I had 13 years ago, and im on housing, they Ad Litem requested that the 2 kids staying with me be removed from my home and placed with cps :( They took the kids out of school during state exams and placed them in a emergency shelter. I am in search of a attorney to represent me to fight to get my 2 nephews back from cps asap. We have court on June 10 2014. I am not rich and I don’t have over 5000 upfront but I know this type of service isn’t free as well. I just need a cps attorney that is willing to work with me financially. I have a lot of documentation that proves that cps has been negligent towards these kids and if I don’t fight to protect them I fear they will be abused and ect again. These children have been through things no child should every have to endure and as their biological aunt I feel in my heart I have to do something to protect them before its too late. Please contact me at 8three2three88six0eight1

    Thank you

    CPS “stole” our son when he was 2 months old and we have been fighting to get him home ever since.They came in because of false allegations.They target people who cannot afford to fight them back and make alot of money stealing children.The government has way too much power over people now and I am open to suggestions on how to get this crap stopped!

    I don’t know where you all live, but every police officer I’ve worked with had more common sense than any social worker….and they are well-trained, educated and used to operating with facts and evidence and not hear-say and false reports. They are the law – and have to function within it, unlike CPS.
    I have never seen a cop that wanted to waltz into someone’s house and take their kids away nor enjoy helping a CPS worker do so. (Yea, every department has a jerk or two, but they don’t last long).

    CPS has no one overseeing them( and believe it or not, there may checks and balances in most police departments to assure things are handled properly); and the judges in family courts are lazy or just don’t care; they actually have no say over what goes on……..defense attorneys can suggest things and a judge will ask CPS if they agree – they don’t make their own decisions; I doubt if they even read the reports to see if there is any evidence or how much of it is hear-say. The whole system stinks!

    You have a better solution, lets hear it.
    The powers that be created this monster and think they did a good thing; try and find someone with balls to fight to abolish it and create something that actually protects children without harming them and their families. There are way too many kids out there who are actually being abused, neglected or are in danger that are left unchecked by “busy” CPS workers. A CPS worker will, however, latch onto a minor case and waste time and resources searching for something they can use – I guess it shows they are doing something without putting themselves in harms way.

    Law enforcement would not take anyone’s kids away without extreme cause and unfounded reports would be just that – unfounded at the time of initial contact.

      Law enforcement agents are bound by Constitutional law whereas social workers act like they don’t know what the Constitution is a lot of the time. Parents prosecuted in criminal courts have Constitutional rights, but parents in juvenile court are deprived of those rights.

      I agree that social workers are bullies and therefore like to pick on the most helpless individuals. They are less likely to want to confront actual child abusers who could be very frightening people.

      My main reason for preferring to have law enforcement agents investigating is that they are more likely to honor the Constitution, judge and investigate fairly. They are looking for actual crimes, and are not likely to nitpick about laundry unfolded on the sofa and things like that.

      This is not to say there are not corrupt law enforcement investigators. We all know there are. But what’s more likely to be corrupted, jaded, and unfeeling, a police officer or a CPS social worker?

      • Sondra says

        I am in a case that the caseworker actually brings law enforcement with her to the home visits, the actual officers look bored and check their phones throughout the visit. I always ask why she is here so that she can state the ridiculous allegations in front of the law makers and in front of my friends and the children they keep threatening to remove and place in foster care because of the anonymous tip of mental health concerns by people in a completely different state. obviously anyone can make a concern about mental health to CPS and they get a hard on, and the police officers just roll their eyes.

  14. says

    I agree. Child Abuse is a crime. Also, having evidence is better than he said she said. Anybody can say anything and it don’t have to be true. Evidence is what’s needed no matter what.

    We were reported as “strict, religious, homeschoolers.” This brought a social worker to our door, threats of torture, and even trying to force us to sell our house to a friend of the SW for cheap.

    As we were not residents of that state (lived elsewhere) we were free to beat it out of the state. We were advised by our attorney not to come back into the state until the case was closed. 18 months later we were given the all clear.

    Soon another SW showed up, threats, etc. Gone again and now 7 years later still the case has not been closed.
    Yet we know there are hard cases in which children and other dependent persons have to be rescued from gross neglect and abuse. Law enforcement is in the business of enforcing the laws, not taking care of those who cannot take care of themselves.

    What do you suggest when decent relatives are not available to take over the care of a child or dependent adult? And someone has to decide who is and is not competent to take over care.

    Absolutely NOT, Police should not be taking over for CPS, they are already way too connected making it a Conflict of Interest! I have for years tried to get police to understand they are above authority to keep CYS in order and all it has ever done but made Law Enforcement attack me including using my own sons as abuse to get me to realize I need to shut up! Now been illegally tasered, drugged with something (needle marks, then dropped drunk charge), denied any medical treatment for a severe head injury, kidnapped and taken to jail where they also refused any medical attention and now I am on charges that were not even arrest-able prior to adding in I was drunk, totally sober when they detained me illegally, altered documentations and statements by police, including video that he purposely unplugged their mic so it did not record his threats of me proven at end of tape when he plugged it back in. I am being targeted because their first illegal jailing of me in 1994 came back on my FBI Clearance and the now judge, former DA had to sign a letter stating there are no records on me in 1994, but now with new garbage all done since, they claim i they an alias, because that was my married name back then. The 1994 charges were not even held a court process for but since the Judge took over the same office, he must have destroyed them…tell me where a fair court process is now? No access to anyone within system to stop this police officer who should be on felony assault and kidnapping of me! And I keep being denied any lawyer to file Federal Chapter 18 crime charges on this police force and leadership that has allowed this abuse of the people done by police!

    Child abuse is a crime just like abuse, assault to a person. It should be investigated by the police. We are no longer in the 20’s where wives, and children are considered property.

    • Robert Barnes says

      You would be amazed and disgusted at the people that think their wives, husbands and or boyfriend and girlfriend are property and think they can rent them out or share them with others.

    It’s very evident the write is self-absorbed and thinks way too highly of themselves. Their comment “CPS workers are trained to lie and twist words and statements to suit their needs and to justify their actions” fit ever so perfectly to LEO as well. LEO will lie, manipulate, or whatever they have to.

    “Social workers believe they are above the law”, while I agree, but this also sounds like another profession. If you are thinking, law enforcement, you are correct. LEO are uneducated individuals, with minimal skills. They are truly the epitome of the “holier than though” complex.

    No, current CPS is not perfect, nor even that great. I agree that social workers, especially MSW’s, are holier than thou. But, social workers are trained to do social service work, not LEO. CPS (or APS) will be no better if those duties were to be transferred to law enforcement. In fact, I would adventure to say that CPS would be even worse under law enforcement jurisdiction.

    • JNevada says

      Definitely NOT concerning Law Enforcement taking over for CPS! Law Enforcement for one have enough to keep up with their normal scope of their jobs, they do NOT need to have more stress put on them. Everyone of them are desperately in need of anger-management classes and help for their very sensitive egos,it does not take much to set them off.They have been in the back pocket of CPS for so long, they have been trained by CPS in cruelty,match that with their own police training where they learn about Terrorist tactics,how to apply force without leaving a mark,to stalk people,not to mention they abused the power that is given to them and their resources at their disposal whenever they want. They are the last people that should be involved with the very sensitive situations concerning our children and families,they cannot be trusted with our children and families.You already have one agency that believes they are untouchable. To give the police Department such power over the communities is the same as putting everyone in a police state day-in-and-day-out.And just remember I am sure that when Walter Mondale Created CPS he thought he could control them as well, take all the pro-cautions necessary to ensure CPS would NOT become the embodiment of EVIL that they have become today.CPS has NO accountability,NO checks-n-balances to keep them from becoming the heartless monster they are as a whole.Anyone that works for them believes in the agency as it is,so they are just as heartless,just as cruel,and if they have a heart it is as black as night.Nothing human in them.You want to be at the mercy of another agency that is twice as bad, I say this because they,the police,believe everyone deserves to be treated in this manner.And by chance there is a very small few that do not believe in these tactics of their fellow officers,they do not have the intestinal fortitude to stand up to them for themselves let alone for any form of innocence, and our children are just that, innocent,they deserve our protection not a blind eye turned towards another evil mistake.

    Under the Lindburgh laws, the penalty for kidnapping for money is death. Can you name any websites advocating the execution of any and all active C.P.S. agents? Many of C.P.S. victims are poor, and cannot afford lawyers. Hysteria-motivated politicians caused this problem in the first place. You have a “prayer” site. Pathetic. If George Washington had relied solely on the power of prayer, we would wall be eating styke an’ kidney pie, guv’nah, and we would still be under the boot of the bloody Brits.
    An answer to my question would NOT make you an accessory to anything. Even Al Qaida has a website magazine. According to network news, it’s called “Inspire”. I hope that this problem is NOT taken there, for Al Qaida wants to kill ALL Americans, not just C.P.S. agents.

      Joseph, I don’t know of any sites like that. My philosophy is to fight CPS only via legal means in a court of law… because parents in prison cannot get their kids back.

To get your comments approved faster:
1. Write short comments
2. Do not use your last name if you have an open case and are concerned about your social worker finding your comment. If you're extremely worried about that, use a fake name and location.
3. Do not use anyone else's name
4. Do not use all-caps
5. Disguise your phone number with words in place of some of the numbers like 846-55five-36nine8
