Stop CPS Corruption

NOT ONE STATE CPS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA MEETS EVEN MINIMUM STANDARDS SET DOWN BY OUR LAW MAKERS!!!!

NATIVE AMERICAN GIRL KIDNAPPED BY STATE OF MISSOURI

How can CPS Employees submit manufactured instruments in a Court Of Law in The United States of America and not be held accountable for their actions????

How can the rape and molestation of Our Children while in CPS care be ignored????

How can so many Children die while in CPS care year after year, yet they are not held accountable????

Disproportionality and disparity in the child welfare system

In the United States, data suggests that a disproportionate number of Native American children enter the foster care system. 

Differing rates of disproportionality are seen at key decision points including the reporting of abuse, substantiation of abuse, and placement into foster care. 

Research has shown that there is no difference in the rate of abuse and neglect among minority populations when compared to Caucasian children that would account for the disparity.

I want you all to know that CPS is so corrupt that while they can’t coverup the extreme number of Children stolen from Native American Families, their far-reaching lies corrupt as much as possible of what is written for the public to see.  CASE IN POINT, the above paragraph is wrong on one very important point:

In cases of Sexual Assault and Child Sexual Assault, over 80 to 85% of the time it is Family or someone close to family, in every race but two (2), and those are Alaskan Native and Native American.

– Alaskan Native and Native American Girls and Women know the perp in LESS THAN 30% OF THE CASES!!!!

Rebekah Ross Thonginh

Hunt County, TX  –  One of three people indicted in connection with an investigation of the local Child Protective Services (CPS) office has been found guilty of official oppression.

A bench trial for Rebekah Ross Thonginh concluded Thursday afternoon in the 354th District Court.  Thonginh had been charged with four counts of official oppression and one charge of tampering with physical evidence and had pleaded not guilty.  Prosecution proceeded on only one count of official oppression, a misdemeanor, filed in connection with an allegedly unlawful search and seizure in December 2011.

Thonginh was found guilty of the charge by Judge Richard A. Beacom and was sentenced to one year in county jail, with the sentence probated for two years.  Thonginh was also fined $2,000, ordered to complete community service and to serve 30 days in the Hunt County Jail, starting no earlier than Oct. 8.

Thonginh was indicted by the Hunt County grand jury in September 2013 alongside Laura Ard and Natalie Ausbie Reynolds, who have also entered not guilty pleas and have trials pending next month.

Ard, of Rockwall, received one indictment for tampering with physical evidence.  Reynolds, of Fate, received three indictments for official oppression and one indictment for tampering with/fabricating physical evidence.

The charges alleged all three acted together to use a false document in the investigation of the mother of slain Greenville teenager Alicia Moore and that Ross and Reynolds conducted unlawful searches and/or seizures in connection with CPS investigations.

The tampering with physical evidence indictments allege all three defendants acted together on our about Nov. 6, 2012 “to use a record and/or document to wit: the risk assessment involving Aretha Moore … with knowledge of its falsity and with intent to affect the course or outcome of the investigation.”

In three of the official oppression indictments, Reynolds and Ross were alleged to have acted together as CPS investigators to have subjected three separate individuals who were under CPS investigations “to search and seizure that the defendant knew as unlawful” on or about Dec. 16, 2011, March 28, 2012 and June 14, 2012.

Ross was also alleged to have subjected a fourth individual under CPS investigation to an unlawful search and/or seizure on June 27, 2012.

CPS – THE UNTOUCHABLES

Elizabeth Middleton, the SVSS director

Day after day, I’m forced to endure out-and-out lies and ignorance, and I am talking about the statistics for Child Maltreatment.

Even when the truth comes shining through, the INDIFFERENCE of WE THE PEOPLE shine even brighter.

I have shown documented proof of CPS and DHHS faulty and intentionally altered stats time after time.

Children’s Advocacy Institute Report

How can there be just 686,000 reports of  Child Maltreatment when there are about 3,000,000 calls reported.  However, when you recall that less than 25% are ever reported, which translates to 12,000,000 most probable instances of Child Maltreatment.

So, in all reality, we aren’t even near 5 Child Deaths daily, the number is somewhere between 8 to 11.

It’s bad enough with Child Maltreatment files found in the dumpster, Child Maltreatment visits not being made, and even answering machines with Child Maltreatment calls are mysteriously erasing themselves;  but when CPS is caught red-handed breaking OUR LAWS, they are given a get-out-of-jail-FREE, time after time!!!!

Don’t quiet believe it????  Well My Friend, be sure and catch my next post….

CPS INTENTIONALLY TAINTING NUMBERS!!!!

Abused Kids Not Destined to Be Abusive Parents, Study Finds

That theory has been supported by past research. But, Widom explained, those studies have been hampered by limitations, such as working “backward” — starting with parents accused of abuse, and asking them if they’d been mistreated as kids.

Conventional wisdom says that abused children often grow up to be abusive parents, but a 30-year study of American families suggests it’s more complicated than that.

In one striking finding, researchers uncovered little evidence that physical abuse is passed from one generation to the next.

“That was extremely surprising,” said lead researcher Cathy Spatz Widom, a professor of psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, in New York City.  “The theory has been that children of parents who were abused are at increased risk of physical abuse.”

That theory has been supported by past research.  But, Widom explained, those studies have been hampered by limitations, such as working “backward” — starting with parents accused of abuse, and asking them if they’d been mistreated as kids.

“The problem there is, you miss the parents who were abused but did not go on to have these issues,” Widom explained.

Her study, published in the March 27 issue of Science, followed two generations of families, including over 1,100 parents and their kids. More than half of the parents had been abused or neglected as children, back in the 1960s and 1970s; the rest had no history of abuse, but were from similar backgrounds.

To see whether the children of abused parents were at risk, Widom’s team used three sources: Records from child protective services (CPS); interviews with parents; and interviews with their children once they were young adults.

Overall, the researchers found, children of abused parents were at no greater risk of physical abuse.  And that was true whether the information came from parents’ or children’s reports, or CPS records.

Based on CPS reports, for example, almost 7 percent of kids born to abused parents suffered physical abuse, versus just over 5 percent of the comparison group — a difference that was not statistically significant.

In contrast, children of abused parents were at higher risk of sexual abuse or neglect, the finding showed.

There’s no clear explanation for the difference between physical abuse and other forms of mistreatment, according to Widom.

“It’s really puzzling to us,” she said. “We need more research to dig into the reasons.”

Dr. Kristine Campbell, a pediatrician who studies child abuse, commended the work.

“This is a very impressive research effort,” said Campbell, an associate professor at the University of Utah, in Salt Lake City.

“There has long been acceptance that abuse is passed down through generations, almost like eye color or skin tone,” Campbell said.

In her personal experience, she added, “I’ve seen this presented as a reason to suspect a parent of abusing a child. I’ve also seen parents terrified that they are predestined to abuse their child because of their own histories of maltreatment.”

But these findings show that’s not the case, Campbell said.
Widom agreed. “Parents shouldn’t feel they’re doomed to continuing the cycle of abuse,” she said.

Her team did, however, find that authorities may have a “bias” toward detecting abuse when parents have a history of child mistreatment.

The researchers looked at the rate of official CPS reports among all parents and kids who reported abuse or neglect: When it came to families where parents had been abused, about 30 percent of abuse cases involved an official CPS report; among other families, CPS picked up only 15 percent of abuse cases.

How would that happen?  Widom speculated that parents with a history of child abuse may use more social services in general.

“Each time you’re in contact with social services,” Widom said, “there’s an opportunity to be observed by the people working for those agencies, and they’re mandated to report suspected child abuse.”

But that does not mean abuse is “over-detected” in those families, Campbell stressed. Instead, she said, the findings imply that the system often misses child mistreatment — especially in families where parents have no history of abuse.

Despite that sobering take-away, Campbell also saw “good news” in the findings.

“The substantial majority of parents who have experienced child abuse will never abuse their own children,” Campbell said.

And for those struggling to get past their childhood mistreatment, many communities have programs that help young moms and dads build their parenting skills, she added.

According to Widom, future studies should dig for the reasons why some abused kids become abusive parents, while many others do not.

Campbell agreed. “If we want to work on child abuse prevention, we need to better understand the perpetrators of abuse,” she said.  “My experience is that very few parents who abuse their children can simply be dismissed as ‘monsters.'”

Child Abuse OK in AZ????

Botched child abuse cases to be reviewed by next week

Phoenix, AZ(AP) — An Arizona government official says his department will review more than 6,000 unexamined reports of child abuse and neglect by Dec. 2.

The director of the Department of Economic Security, Clarence Carter, also said in a plan submitted Monday night that all reports forwarded to case workers will be investigated by Jan. 31. Carter sent the plan to members of the Legislature’s Child Protective Services oversight committee. Carter revealed the problems with the botched cases last week and was grilled by members of the oversight committee on Thursday. He told the committee he would deliver the plan by “the close of business” Monday.

Child advocates have said that the debacle in Arizona reflects a common problem nationwide as child protective agencies are burdened with high case loads, lack of funding and dismal resources that force social workers to prioritize calls based on the most egregious reports.

Still, the reports need an initial review to determine whether they are worthy of investigation, said Michael Petit, president of the advocacy group Every Child Matters and former commissioner of Maine’s Human Services Department, which oversees child protective services. “They can’t just park them and say we’re really busy and put them aside,” Petit said Monday.

Carter has identified a number of Child Protective Services staffers who will be assigned to investigate the cases, department spokeswoman Tasya Peterson said earlier Monday. An exact number of staffers hasn’t been determined, but Gov. Jan Brewer has approved using overtime for the urgent job. Brewer added 200 new CPS positions in her budget this year to help the agency deal with skyrocketing case loads.

So far, authorities re-examining the cases have identified at least 125 in which children were later alleged to have been abused. No deaths have been connected to the lapses. Meanwhile, state police are reviewing how the mistakes occurred. A captain, sergeant and four detectives will have their caseloads reassigned and focus only on the CPS investigation. The investigation is designed to determine who authorized the cases to be designated as “not investigated” and to review the department’s policies. It is administrative in nature, and any findings of potential criminal actions would be handled by another team or agency, Department of Public Safety spokesman Bart Graves said.

State law requires that reports phoned into a child abuse hotline be investigated. Yet beginning in November 2009, some cases were closed before being sent to a field office for investigation by a team of specialists trying to clear a backlog, Graves said. The practice was suspended, briefly renewed the next year, and suspended again. However, beginning about 20 months ago, a new team designed to help the agency overcome an ongoing backlog revived the practice. More than 5,000 of the 6,000 cases that were not investigated happened since that time.

Law enforcement agents assigned to the agency’s child welfare investigations unit discovered the closed cases in recent weeks. Carter has said cases were pulled before they reached field investigators based on a review by a special team whose goal was to focus field investigators on the most serious cases.

Petit suggested the agency just had too many cases to handle. “When you’ve got 6,000 backlogged cases, that’s not a function of a lot of people goofing off,” he said. However, Petit added, the problem won’t be easy to address without a huge increase in staff at the Arizona agency, and the issue will be compounded as calls keep coming. “If they’re going to do a retroactive on these 6,000 cases,” he said, “they’re going to have the same problems six months later if they don’t address the problem that led to this in the first place.”

Some Democrats have called on Carter to resign. But Brewer, a Republican, is standing by him – for now. “Once we know what happened, then accountability will take place,” Brewer spokesman Andrew Wilder said.
