Courts and State Agencies Collaborate against Parents
by: Annette M. Hall
While editing my CPS links for "Annette's Favorites" I stumbled across some disturbing information, which I will share with you here. I'm certain this is just a portion of what I will uncover in my research, so please check back for updates.
Community Partnership Benefits Abused and Neglected Children in Alachua, Levy and Gilchrist Counties, Florida
Palm Beach County Mom protects children from DCFS - Lands in Jail
I'm confident all parties involved happily accepted the federal grants that were offered and accepted but I find something very disturbing and perhaps even illegal when DCFS and the Courts collaborate to "assist" the children in these Florida counties. How can parents even hope to get a fair shake in court when all parties involved are openly conspiring against them? You be the judge.
The Pew Charitable Trusts assists "stakeholders" in helping to herd children into foster care placement quickly and painlessly, who cares about the families of these children, it's the stakeholders who are important.
These are laudable goals but the proof is in the pudding.
Of course it's not possible that the schools, the teachers or other "professionals" have any shortcomings, only the family could have those. This is nothing more than a fishing expedition to scarf up more children, with less effort.
What Does It All Mean?
You might be asking yourself what does this all mean? It means that what I believed all along is true. State agencies, the courts and support services are all working together to ensure that children are removed from their parents. I am positive there are some well-intentioned individuals working within this system but it's apparent that this is not only big business at work but it's an organized, well-funded effort, enabling these coconspirators to make the most money in the shortest possible amount of time.
A History Lesson
Many years ago I was involved with Operation Rescue a group loosely led by Randall Terry, the pro-life activist. Our mission was to assemble peaceably at abortion clinics, we would sing songs, pray, and attempt to "council" or help any of the clinics prospective clientel, in hopes of saving innocent lives, namely babies who would be killed that day.
One day 173 of us were arrested. We had closed-down the Center for Choice II, in Toledo, OH. Pictures of me were plastered on just about every television and newspaper in the country that night. Several of us had the bright idea of chaining ourselves by the neck, with kryptonite bicycle locks, to a heavy chain and the iron bars, which adorned the abortion clinics windows.
What does this all have to do with fighting CPS? I'll tell you. All of us were arrested that day in Toledo. The police treated us well, held us for a couple of hours and released us to go back to the protest, so long as we agreed to be good and not participate (others were still taking part). Our crime? We were charged with disorderly conduct, which is normal for our activity. No big deal, right? Wrong!
Shortly afterward we received more than we bargained for. The Center for Choice II was out for blood, they were upset that they couldn't kill any babies that day and charged everyone who had been arrested that day in a RICO lawsuit, under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, for 14 million dollars.
To say we were stunned is the under statement of the year. We were in shock. Our loose-knit little band of crusaders dwindled to nothing. Some of us continued to picket weekly but the hundreds of people who would normally show up, were no more. We were lucky to get 5 or 6 people to turn out.
The case dragged on for over two-years. I cut my legal teeth on that case and several others of much less significance. We won our case but lost the war. Shortly after our case was won, several other cases were brought before the courts. Operation Rescue was no more, the fight against the abortion clinics never regained the strength we once knew.
If you study the history behind RICO, you will find that the RICO Act was passed to deal with gangsters and corrupt business dealings, not those with a moral and spiritual objection to an unjust law, which is exactly how we saw ourselves. We were mothers, grandmothers, preachers, nuns and people of faith. None of us made a dime from our activities, we weren't selling anything but it cost us all dearly.
My question is this, why aren't parents charging child protective service workers, judges, lawyers and those who abuse the system, steal our children and charge us falsely with abuse, under the RICO statutes. They are acting criminally, making money illegally off the backs of innocent children, costing the taxpayers billions of dollars, not to mention draining families of their livelihood, their homes and retirement funds. What they are doing is wrong, plain and simple.
I would like to challenge those of you who understand the law to review the RICO statutes and see if you don't find that they apply here.
