Your Tax Dollars Paying To Protect DPSS Workers


$700,000 per year. This is what Riverside County has been granted for UN-ARMED guards to “protect” the people who CARE SO MUCH ABOUT CHILDREN! WHY ON EARTH WOULD THEY NEED PROTECTION? THESE OFFICES DO NOT HAVE ANY CASH OR VALUABLES ON HAND, WHY WOULD PEOPLE THREATEN TO HARM AND CAUSE “ALTERCATIONS” IF CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICE WORKERS ARE NICE, CARING HUMAN BEINGS WHO JUST HELP PEOPLE IN NEED? Maybe CPS social workers, supervisors and the Director, are not really very nice or care one bit about the children!

Check out the Submittal to the Board of Supervisors who approved the funding:

CPS WORKERS ARE DELUSIONAL: Interview With A Former CPS Worker

CPS WORKERS ARE DELUSIONAL: Interview With A Former CPS Worker

A resourceful and assertive donnellyjustice.me reader who goes by the handle, Mad Angel, recently had an opportunity to ask a former CPS caseworker some questions. Mad Angel asked members of Facebook to let her know if there were any questions that they wanted answers for. Here are the questions and answers that this brave individual gave HOWEVER, her answers give a clue as to how oblivious the workers really are to what is really going on. These answers are based on WHAT THE WORKER EXPERIENCED, WHAT THEY LEARNED IN “TRAINING” AND WERE LITERALLY TOLD TO BELIEVE AND TO THINK.

[Copied from Facebook with my own remarks which are between the two lines]

Here are the responses from the caseworker as promised.

1. I understand caseworkers get paid a salary, they get benefit packages…..So when a cps worker has done what they call an excellent job and removing more kids to safety or having more kids adopted out , than do they individually receive actual adjusted bonuses for what they call outstanding work?

ANSWER: Contrary to popular belief, there are no direct bonuses. However, the agency/state does not receive as much federal money for kids not in care and there are adoption federal funds received by the state agency.

                                                                                                                     

*****NOTE: My husband used to be a drinking buddy of a now retired CPS Supervisor and she received “Christmas” bonuses and the amount was unofficially based on the number of children her department “saved”. **************************

                                                                                                                    

2. Who really makes the decision to remove the child, the CPS worker or their supervisor/manager?

ANSWER: Ultimately, the decision belongs to the Supervisor, however, I have seen Supervisors bend over backwards to “help” the caseworker come to the conclusion that removal is necessary….or, at least, “in the child’s best interest.” Remember, we are taught to “err on the side of the child.”

3. Why does cps use past allegation from closed cases as removal purposes?

Usually only past “substantiated” referrals are given much weight. They can indicate whether a living situation is chronic as opposed to perhaps a one-time occurrence.

4. Why do they refuse to offer any real services to keep the family together in minor neglect cases? Is there no benefits or extra incentives to help in force the caseworkers want to keep the family unit together?

ANSWER: The agency is limited to the services available within a given community (i.e. lowest bidder, and you get what you pay for, but quality of services was never at the top of my list of concerns). INCENTIVES TO KEEP FAMILIES TOGETHER is at the very crux of the CPS issue. This was the entire point of the new policy that was implemented, but not followed, which prompted me to speak out against the agency “not following its own rules,” and for which I was eventually fired.

                                                                                                                       

*****NOTE: Same goes for everyone involved in the “court” facade. They use the rules against the parents but can break them all if they want to. Why BECAUSE THE JUDGE LETS THEM!!! THEY ARE NEVER HELD ACCOUNTABLE!!***********

                                                                                                                       

5. Why would they only take 1 child from the home & leave older & younger full siblings with accused neglectful parent?

ANSWER: Each child’s vulnerability is assessed individually. It is extremely unusual to leave a younger (i.e. more vulnerable) child in a home from which older children were removed. Older children are frequently left because they are capable of self-defense (or so the reasoning goes).

                                                                                                                    

**NOTE: I have never heard of any cases where one child was removed yet allowed the others to stay unless the others were not at home or school at the time of the initial removal but eventually CPS takes all full blood related children (i.e. no half-siblings) Half-siblings are often not included in the removal or the case but this, in my case, was due to the fact that it was the vindictive mother of the half sibling who made the “anonymous” call and because the half-sibling’s grandmother was a 35 year CPS veteran employee. *******************************************************

                                                                                                                    

6. Does he state also receive extra funding for children with disabilities?

ANSWER: Yes

7. We know abusive people can be very deceitful, yet there seems to be a growing trend of the abusive parent getting custody of the children in many cases (and what has caused a lot of the incidents of death/murder in many cases) doesn’t cps have training into noticing the trends of an abusive parent?

ANSWER: In short, yes. But the training is mostly concerned with protecting the agency from bad press. What I witnessed most frequently was removal of the child(ren) from one parent due to substantiated abuse and placement with the other parent for the simple reason that we have no allegations of abuse against them because we don’t know them.

                                                                                                                     

***NOTE: Well, how about at least looking into why the Family Law Judge (whose decisions are considered to be fair and reasonable by everyone else but CPS apparently) made the decision to grant physical custody to the decent parent they are taking the child away from???!! At least they could find out that much!!! MESSAGE TO CPS WORKERS AND YOU COURT COHORTS THAT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN: Family Law Judges know what they are doing (at least half the time) and have a GOOD REASON to order one parent have only supervised visits, why not just go with those orders until you can bring the case to court?                                                  

8. I realize that a timid parent who doesn’t aggressively stop another abusive parent is in essence just as guilty as the abusive parent, yet why is it that cps standards seem to be shifting to allow the abusive parent custody first and foremost.

ANSWER: Please see the above answer and, remember, CPS is not a “custody” agency. This is a difficult concept because, while CPS can remove children and place children either in foster care or with the “non-offending” parent, CPS does not establish custody. That is done by a judge in the Domestic Relations Court. Interestingly, because there is no legal custody for most children, either parent has the same rights to the child and therefore CPS cannot keep the child from the parent on whom we have no indication of abuse because we don’t know them.

9. Why wouldn’t services be offered to keep emotionally disabled child with her family? Why send her back home only when she began having uncontrollable seizures? Liability???

ANSWER: Yeah, CPS definitely sometimes “cuts their losses.” Like for a habitual “runner” or dangerous child. Usually these cases involve out-of-control teenagers.

10. Do you know anything about the bribes offered to the judges and jurors? If so, have you ever actually witnessed such acts?

I honestly have no knowledge of a judge receiving a bribe and I’ve never worked on a case with a jury.

                                                                                                                     

**NOTE: In Riverside County, CA the County places an advertisement looking for a “Judge” to fill the seat in Juvenile Court Dependency Court. This court is exclusive to CPS, everyone is paid out of the same funding that CPS workers are paid, meanwhile still receiving their regular seat pay as they have only taken an administrative leave or something. They are already being “bribed” just by accepting their paychecks from the same county who is against the people whose children are being removed or the “defendants.. How do they get away with such a conflict of interest??*****************

                                                                                                                      

11. It seems like the whole court and all the membiers inside during a child welfare case are all old buddies, is it true that sometimes before a hearing the lawyers may negotiate on whether or not to win or lose the case for each other. (I’ve overheard this one, “come on last time you were ruthless and I know that guy was guilty you have to let me win this one I haven’t gotten a winning case this week”

ANSWER: I think it is a bit of an “old-boys-network” (although it is mostly women). That said, I honestly think that most caseworkers, lawyers, judges…honestly believe they are doing what is in the best interest of the children. They are simply not terribly well-read when it comes to family-dynamics and child-development. The biggest problems with CPS are ignorance and megalomania.

12. Can you please explain how the agency benefits from the title IV funding?

ANSWER: If a child is IV-E eligible (which, for our purposes here, essentially means the child would qualify for TANF…i.e.poor families), the state gets federal funding for the child. This represents the VAST MAJORITY of CPS children.

13. We see over and over in the news how cps had plenty of opportunity to remove a child, yet they don’t. Most of the time the public only gets to see the cases that go completely wrong ie child dies. Why is a child left in an abusive situation during an active investigation?

ANSWER: It’s all about timing or disclosure. Either a child must disclose that they are being abused or CPS must catch the parents in the immediate aftermath of abuse or during neglect.

14. How do you find the “prisons” set up by CPS that imprison children? Children that most likely were taken from NON-abusive homes and families.

ANSWER: Honestly, foster homes are thoroughly vetted and I consider most of them saints. They are put under more scrutiny than even families being investigated. That said, if you are a bad person, the tightest scrutiny can be circumvented for long periods of time with lies and deception.

15. Why are some children put in Foster care, and the immediate family members are not contacted?

ANSWER: CPS is required by federal law to “diligently search” for family with whom the child can be placed. Of course, laws only work if they are enforced and this is among the top-5 problems with “the system:” no enforcement.

16. What process do they use to find family members of the child?

ANSWER: There is a systematic protocol, but, essentially, either the parent or child must provide contact information for expedient location of suitable relatives.

17. Did you ever have civil rights training?

ANSWER: Civil rights training is often received, but rarely enforced. My biggest concern was always constitutional rights (see 4th, 6th and 14th amendments) which are never taught or enforced.

18. What were the motivations of the job?

ANSWER: I can really only speak for myself, but my motivations were simple, help children while maintaining the sanctity of family. Considered more valued than these within the agency are agency-protection, enforcement and megalomania, which is why I’m unemployed.

19. What kind of mandatory training did you have?

ANSWER: TONS!!! of mandatory training, little of which translated to practice for anyone else.

20. What can parents do to keep caseworkers honest?

ANSWER: Nothing, but being obsequious and obedient is what I have seen help families even with corrupt and/or monomaniacal workers.

21. Did you ever know of a whistle-blower? What happened?

ANSWER: I was a whistle-blower. We get targeted and are eventually fired and no one cares. The bureaucratic behemoth lives on to devour more families and children.

22. What corruption have you seen yourself, and are you willing to present this information to the public?

ANSWER: One of my favorite examples of corruption was when I worked in the freeing-children-for-adoption unit where we read “home studies” on prospective adoptive families and one of my co-workers said she immediately checks to see if a family is religious and if they are she won’t even consider them as a potential placement. A clear violation of civil rights. Unfortunately most corruption in CPS is much more subtle and can be effectively couched in “best interest of child” and “err on side of child” language. It’s all gray area therefore there is no wrong way of doing things. This is why, I am convinced CPS will never experience wholesale improvement. Society NEEDS a perceived protector for its most vulnerable and a visible scapegoat when things go horribly wrong.

I HAVE already gone public with all of this. I got fired. No one cares.

23. We’re you ever trained to do the wrong thing?

ANSWER: I think I made it abundantly clear to my superiors from “go” that I would not be a blindly obedient Nazi. I was eventually fired precisely because I would not do the wrong thing.

24. When they figure out that they made the wrong decision. Like placing the children with the abusive parent, why don’t they fix it?

ANSWER: The next time I witness the agency admitting a mistake it will be the first time.

Our Readers Write….


Dear Donnellyjustice,

I lost my son to CPS last year. I am not allowed to write to the adoptive parents but if I were allowed, this is what it would say:

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Jones,

Thank you for taking good care of my son. You never will love him as much as I do but I do appreciate the effort. It was unfortunate that you refused to believe our sad AND TRUE HEARTBREAKING STORY because David would like to see his real Mommy and Daddy. Did you ever ask him what HE WANTED?

I hope you have been paying attention to the news lately and the outcry of the people in protest to several horror stories that the news is finally reporting. Now you should doubt me less and consider that it is MORE PROBABLE THAN NOT THAT my son was taken purely for funding of CPS. Just the fact that he is a wonderful, caring, polite and loving little  boy should show you all by itself how his mother and I treated him and the kind of parents we are.

Many people have been unaware of the injustices that countless parents experience, unaware of how CPS workers lie and fabricate evidence, unaware that CPS workers disobey court orders, manipulate the Judge, and NEVER EVER LOSE IN COURT. CPS is a criminal organization that must increase it’s child intake every single year to be eligible for funding. I know this because of all of the research my wife and I have done on this agency and because my ex mother-in-law worked for CPS for 35 years, 22 of those years were during my marriage to her daughter, the one who called CPS out of revenge to my second wife who has been able to love me without cheating on me.

I have raised 5 children to adulthood and I am so very grateful that my wife has been by my side faithfully for the 11 years. Dave’s brothers and sisters know that he was never in any danger and that he was even more spoiled than they were. We are so very proud of our kids no matter what they do, we know that life is full of learning by mistakes and that forgiveness is one of keys to a peaceful life. Our children are healthy, productive members of society. They all have made only ONE semi-serious mistake in their young lives yet we are so proud that these mistakes proved to have made a life-changing impact on each one of them. We raised intelligent, law abiding citizens. CPS and the court cohorts claim that the reason they remove children from their parents is to keep them “safe” from “dangerous” people (parents) which is what they made us out to be. But how could we have possibly raised these children to be the people they have become (intelligent, respectful, and productive members of society) without injuries or mental health issues if we were who CPS made us out to be? They didn’t take him because we are bad parents or because they say we are on drugs, there is a very disturbing explanation for it. There is a specific agenda that the government has been following for several years and it seems to fit that they stole our youngest blond haired-blue eyed, adorable little boy. Our adult children do not harbor resentments toward my wife and I but they do resent my first wife and feel that they can’t ever have a normal, drama-free relationship without her trying to ruin it out of jealously. My ex-wife feels that she should always be the center of their attention and goes absolutely nuts when they pay attention to anyone or anything else. All of our children have become or are becoming, productive members of society. Due to the bias created by my ex-wife and her mother, CPS only took my second wife’s children even though we still had one older child who was under 18 at the time. That was the ex-mother-in-law’s grandchild.We loved him so much that my wife and I risked our life and freedom to prevent him from getting hurt in foster care.

Mr. Jones, are you a reasonable man? Can I speak to you, man to man?  I am a good dad and all my children have been raised with patience and a kind heart. Don’t you have a good and decent heart? Would you let anyone separate you from your child when you love your child more than life itself? This is where I stand.  All his siblings know how much love and support I gave to each of them and I would do it again and again. I will see my son again someday and he will know how hard we tried to save him from CPS, how much we love him and miss him and he will know that we contacted you and you refused to allow him to see us. He won’t be happy with that, who would?

If your heart was truly into raising my son, David, to be healthy and happy then he should never be cut off from his siblings. They all miss him and love him so very much. He is their little brother and I know from the tapes we sent you that you also know how much we cherish him. The youngest always always gets the most spoiled. So he is slightly a drama king but he is great just the way he is. That is because of being loved and encouraged to learn.  Do not be mean or foul spirited or quick tempered I beg you. He will be curious about his family and I will not turn away no matter what. We accept you into our lives because of what has happened. You should accept us into yours simply because we are the reason you have been blessed with him. We truly want only what is best for David. You can’t ignore his past so embrace it. He will be much better adjusted for life.  If you really feel we are so bad with out getting to know us that is not a good way to be. I know you have seen just from David’s loving ways that we are good parents. Good parents are always striving to be great parents.

David will get to know his family later in life so if you do not want resentments then you should get to know all of us. You never know, you might like us. We do have friends you know. Normal friends who don’t judge us. I love all my children and I, like most parents, would give my life to help my child. If you could just open your eyes and find out what CPS does to families and children you may figure it out that we are not bad people. We have just been in bad situations making decisions out of fear. I pray you are never involved with CPS, you will get very angry with CPS and that judge who clearly is corrupt.  

My son is my life and I pray you treat him kindly and lovingly as I would.  David is a big part of my life and I did not give him up he was kidnapped just to fill some kind of angry hole my ex wife has in her heart.  I would never take David from you, I hope you know that, not because of the police but because  I want David to have a calm happy childhood, all children deserve that.  If our intentions were to “kidnap” him from you and your wife we wouldn’t have sent you that letter. Our intentions were always to keep David safe from the kidnappers. Not allowing him to see us just because we asked alone, I can understand. But we sent you proof, you’ve  been on our website, you saw videos, you looked up corrupt CPS and I know you found out that a lot of parents are crying out for help against these monsters. We offered for you to meet us first, without David, so you wouldn’t put him in “danger”. But all you did was call CPS and file a restraining order. Thanks a lot for being such a good human being.

Soon enough he will be an adult and stress is a battle then. CPS puts good families through this kind of stress and it must have a long lasting effect on children.  CPS will have to answer to God for that.

I love my son and if you look around here you might learn a little more about how CPS works.  You can not ignore these things or say they are not true because every one of these stories are real. Any parent who fights for their child and never gives up should have never have lost that child. CPS pushes that information aside because family means nothing but a pay check to these people. 

Please tell David that we love him so very much, give him hugs and kisses please, our hearts ache for him..

That is what I would say to the adoptive parents of my son if I were allowed to.
