ELIZABETHTOWN, KY — A young couple had their lives turned upside-down when a CPS worker decided to target them with a series of anonymous child-abuse accusations, each prompting a new investigation.
KANSAS CITY, MO — A sick eight-year-old boy was taken from his family and foisted into foster care after a frustrating hospitalization led his parents to want to seek a second opinion.
TACOMA, WA — A state bureaucracy is threatening a mother with removal of an infant unless her entire family subjects themselves to flu shots.
HARTFORD, CT — A 17-year-old girl has been taken away from her mother and forced to endure unwanted, risky chemotherapy treatments that she absolutely opposes. The teen has been turned into a ward of the state and has been detained against her will in a hospital room for weeks without any choice in her own life-altering medical decisions or future.
ROUND ROCK, TX — A little girl was confiscated from her loving parents because they smoked marijuana, and given away to a foster mother who put her into a coma and killed her.
CHICAGO, IL — When a woman attempted to transfer her chronically-ill son from one hospital to another, she was accused of “medical child abuse” and her 16-year-old son was stripped from her custody, and placed into the hands of the state.
NORTH AUGUSTA, SC — A mother has been arrested and thrown in jail on charges of child neglect because her 9-year-old daughter was found playing at a park by herself.
PHILADELPHIA, PA — A woman says that after delivering her baby naturally at home, she received multiple visits from social workers to her home requiring her to prove that her baby was healthy and under appropriate supervision.
ELDORADO, TX — An anonymous hoax phone call alleging child abuse prompted a massive show of force upon a small religious community. Armed with automatic weapons, SWAT teams, helicopters, and an armored personnel carrier, a paramilitary police force descended upon the the peaceful, cooperative community, prepared to treat everyone as guilty until proven innocent. What happened next was the largest child custody action in Texas state history, resulting in the forceful separation of over 400 children from their families.
FRAMINGHAM, MA — The anguish of a sick teenager continues well over a year after her abduction from her family. Justina Pelletier has been locked away in the care of Massachusetts DCF since February 2013, and a court has put her into the permanent custody of the state. In that time, her family has made allegations of her repeated abuse and “torture.” Justina has been barred from making public statements and has begged for help in secret notes smuggled to her family. The young girl is not even allowed to sleep properly or take a shower in privacy, shocking new details reveal.
NAPA, CA — A man was placed into handcuffs, a woman sobbed uncontrollably, and their 11-month-old boy was seized by social workers and put into foster care — all because of legally prescribed medical marijuana. It didn’t matter that no law had been broken; Child Protective Services has the power to split apart families in an instant with no due process, and regularly does across the country.
VERNON, NJ — A 7th grader who “twirled a pencil” in a manner that someone thought resembled a gun was removed from math class and sent to perform hours of psychiatric evaluation.
LITHIA, FL — A child-abuse investigation has been launched on a Florida mom after she made some public statements in support of medical freedom. Social workers intruded into her life in order to look for excuses to seize her children.
BIRMINGHAM, AL — Parents of a healthy newborn infant were told to consent to injecting him with drugs or lose him to the state. This successful blackmail scheme was made possible by the state’s horrifying ability to seize children without due process.
In a bizarre case of what some are calling government-sponsored kidnapping, CPS recently punished a war veteran for recording CPS and now Child Protective Services are seeking a court order to stop the father from recording them. The two videos below are what CPS considers private and therefore cannot be viewed by the public. In an attempt to hide their inner workings from the public, CPS requested an emergency hearing for Tuesday and will be asking a Ventura County, California judge to order the removal of both videos.
MICHIGAN — Hundreds of thousands of parents have been flagged as “child abusers” in a huge database maintained in secret by Michigan’s Child Protective Services (CPS) agency. The names are entered into the database without due process, without a judicial hearing, without an opportunity for defense, without a conviction, and without even letting the individuals know they have been targeted.
RICHARDSON, TX — A man says that after he drove himself to a hospital for a surgery, social workers detained him against his will and he was then put into a psychiatric ward, and ultimately a nursing home. In a wild exhibition of state power, the man has been a prisoner without due process and no way to free himself.
BOSTON, MA — A father is being charged by the state of Massachusetts for speaking about the kidnapping of his daughter and the oppression his family has endured for the last year. After reaching emotional, physical, and financial exhaustion, Lou Pelletier decided that the only way to save his daughter was to speak out and make his daughter’s story as public as possible. A judge’s “gag order” may cause him to be punished for exercising his right to free speech.
OMAHA, NE — A 2-year-old toddler has been seized by Child Protective Services when a clip surfaced of him using “inappropriate” language in a video posted on the internet. The standard for breaking apart families has become so broad that it now covers politically incorrect speech.
BOSTON, MA — A judge has ruled that a Boston teen may continue to be held captive in a hospital and forcibly drugged… indefinitely. The tragic series of events began when a doctor discarded an earlier medical diagnosis and declared another, prompting objections from her parents and threats to discharge her from Boston Children’s Hospital to take her to get a second opinion. An epic battle of egos ensued, and the hospital decided that the parents’ insolence in challenging the doctor was tantamount to child abuse. Without a trial or having broken a specific law, the girl was stripped from her parents’ custody and the state of Massachusetts has kept her indefinitely detained in a hospital since February 2013. Based on the latest ruling, the girl may very well be locked in a psychiatric ward until she turns 18 years old.
