2012/06/24 - Defending Child Abuse Cases | Out of Control Prosecutors
After 20-years of being involved in criminal law, I sometimes start to believe that I have seen it all. Whenever this happens, I am reminded that I have not.

A two-year-old visiting with a playmate happened upon pain medication and apparently ate it.

2012/06/24 - States Commit Federal Fraud | Citizens Demand Investigation

The federal law that effectively abolished the reasonable efforts requirement, the so-called Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA), also requires states to seek termination of parental rights for many children in foster care for 15 of the most recent 22 months. Yet in many jurisdictions it can take at least 12 months for a judge to decide if the initial placement was justified in the first place.

2012/06/24 - Take the Child and Run: Tales From the Age of ASFA
ASFA was the culmination of an assault on safe, effective programs to keep families together that began in the 1990's. The law has caused untold misery for thousands of children. While supposedly intended to solve the problems of the foster care system, it has, in fact, worsened those problems.

2012/06/24 - The Effects of ASFA (Adoptions and Safe Families Act)
The Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA), was developed and passed to deal with child abuse and is sometimes called the Mondale Act. The publicity of child abuse in 1974 resulted in the passage of CAPTA, which was justly passed to protect children. The Adoption and Safe Families Act (ASFA) was enacted in 1997/8 to deal with a problem created by CAPTA.

The Mondale Act of 1974 was the communist manifesto for American children and families. The road of good intentions to protect children from 'abuse' was paved with quicksand. Children, ripped from falsely-accused parents, fall into the quagmire of institutionalization and subsequent abuse by the State. The question is, was this pre-meditated trafficking in children by agents of the State? Or was it just an ill-conceived experiment gone tragically wrong? Facts point to the former.
