• Child Protection Employees Rarely Pay Price for Failing to Protect Foster Children from Abuse

    When it comes to Child Welfare and Child Protection Service (CPS) agencies across the U.S., the public is fed a very one-sided view that justifies these massive federal programs funded by American taxpayers. The view is that there are vast numbers of children being abused in their homes by their families that need rescuing by these CPS agencies. The failures of these agencies to themselves protect the children they take out of homes and put into foster care are brushed aside under the umbrella excuse that they are under-staffed with not enough funding to properly take care of all these supposedly abused children. The truth, however, is far different than this picture being painted before the public. Studies clearly show that children left in their homes with their parents, even when they are left in troubled homes, are far better off than they would be in foster care away from their family. (See: Foster Care Children are Worse Off than Children in Troubled Homes.) Children in foster care are routinely abused physically and sexually, given psychotic drugs they would not normally be on if they had remained with their families, and far more likely to die before reaching adulthood. When these failures of CPS agencies are discovered and prosecuted in court, resulting in settlements and payouts, the social workers seldom are held accountable, according to a new investigative report by Will Drabold of the Seattle Times. He found that over the past eight years, the Washington state Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) has been hit with scores of lawsuits, ultimately paying $166.4 million for personal-injury claims. Many of the most severely injured were children who were tortured, starved or raped. Some died. And yet, in every single case they looked into, not one social worker was fired or suspended. None was demoted or lost pay.

    Case workers, supervisors have immunity. They do not care if they get caught doing ANYTHING against the law, They hide behind the judges that they own, and if caught and have to pay out money, it's nothing to them, it's like you or I buying a soda, they have money to burn, so until CPS's immunity is taken away you will continue to see children being kidnapped, families being torn apart, CPS in Luzeren county pa kidnapped my 4 grandchildren, and never filed any charges, two aged out of the system and the other two were adopted out, CPS can NOT police them selves, as long as no one watches them they will come for your children next!!!!

    My daughter was kidnapped by a CYS caseworker who was an oxycodone addict. He filed fraudulent paperwork and committed perjury to maintain continued access to our home, so that he could steal my and my wife's fentanyl patches, oxycodone, Actiq, and methadone. He even had the nerve to abuse us of being addicts with absolutely no cause. Then, the supervisors and new caseworkers did everything that they could to cover up his malfeasance. The only justice is that we were able to get out daughter back after years of fighting and hard work.
