Foster Parents; When parents are abused?
Part 4 of 4.
We, are discussing an article we discovered about the issues we face today in dealing with CPS, this article was written by David Wagner and published in Insight Magazine on November 24, 1997. One cannot help but wonder if things have changed in 14 years, you decide. Let us continue now and finish the quote.
Let us continue with our investigation into our concern when parents are abused.
David Wagner went on to quote in the case of Cari Clark, an example he used as saying;
“Most people don’t know about administrative law,” adds Clark. “It was designed for disputes over zoning and the like, so those things could be resolved informally, without going through the courts. It wasn’t meant for conduct that is criminal by its very nature, as child abuse is.”
In our research, we discovered a well written article by an attorney, Rene Sandler, Esq. in Md. She writes,
“CPS nationally is a system in crisis. There are widespread abuses in the system, which varies from, lack of training for social workers, too much discretion for social workers, large caseloads for social workers and lack of staffing for cases, lack of available resources for families, and in some cases negligence of social workers.”
Sandler goes on to inform us about a case in which social workers immunity, liability, was challenged. Link. It was decided that the agency and/or it’s social workers are not immune to liability in certain circumstances. We encourage you to read this article, link.
One more quote from David Wagner’s article where he quotes Andrew Polsky,
- “Thousands of families have been subjected to traumatizing state investigations. Often there is no evidence yet of abuse, but these families are labeled, as in the past, at risk.’ & “despite promises of confidentiality, reputations are destroyed when caseworkers seek some evidence of wrongdoing by questioning teachers, neighbors and relatives.” Link.
One last comment; Do the words, working together mean anything to CPS? No, they do not hear our voices.
By abuse of parents rights, they are creating a worse nightmare than they are correcting. We, as parents systematically stripped of the paental rights to raise our own children, without interference by an out of control government whose interoperation of the saying, “it takes a village to raise a child” seems to them, to mean the government raising our child.
- Take a look at their percentage of success in doing so!
No, just the positions of power, all involved in this entities heads have grown to the size of watermelons in power they wield against us, we the American people. They have no accountability, no one to answer to, least of those with no constitutional rights left, and now it seems the court as quoted in this article agrees with these over inflated egotistical people.
Employed by a system that attributes their lack of success to greatness, it’s all encompassing power to their own deity, instead of where it started in the mind of Mondale whose objective was to protect children not to destroy the American family, he warned us that it would become what it, in fact, has become, an unscrupulous power hungry organization utilizing our children for profit.
