petition to president Obama
Caseworkers and social workers are oftentimes guilty of fraud. They withhold evidence. They fabricate evidence and they seek to terminate parental rights. However, when charges are made against them, the charges are ignored, They have abused civil rights, violated procedure, lied to the courts, to the parents, and have gotten away with it even when caught. Some have even used racial bias to remove and keep children.
when cps goes after a family most people believe there was abuse. this is why community support is hard to get and parents may even find themselves dealing with vengeful law enforcement.
WHAT WE WANT:
Transparency of the courts: the privacy act only protects cps. Parents must be given equal ability to defend themselves. The media must be allowed to research cases so it is not just the parent’s word against the government. Parents must be allowed to invoke trial by jury.
Accountability: When a social worker breaks the law to seize a child, that seizure must be considered unjustified and the child returned immediately.
Due process: Parents must not have to wait months to years to even see their children let alone defend themselves properly. Childhood is fleeting and the children may grow up in the system abused and devoid of parental care. By the time the parents get them back they may be well on a road to destruction they cannot escape.
An amendment in the constitution to protect parental rights: up until now we have not needed one. but because social workers have taken children from birth over mere speculation or the word of an angry neighbor is high time we need one.
Education of parental rights: Laws can easily be abused when people are unaware of their rights.
Over haul of the foster care system: as there are children that need to be there, the system must be fixed to hold foster parents and cps to higher standards. Backgrounds must be checked, foster homes must be checked regularly and doctors questioned.
Protection from clinical testing: foster children must not be used to test medicines in all states.
Nancy Schaefer’s act: End the financial incentives that separate families. Nancy Schaefer is so far the only politician to try and end this abuse of the system. you can be the second and you can succeed.
Mr.president there are terrible cases of children that have starved to death in foster care. cases where an unpopular family may be ripped apart, minority children abused by racist foster parents, military families loose their children, and where a child may have a swat team unleashed to take her away when her mother decides to stop medicating her with unapproved psychotropic medicine. This should not be happening in our era, this something that happens in a Dickinson or Orwell novel. Please Mr.President, save our children.
