• 85% of Reports to Indiana Child Protective Services Unsubstantiated - Families Destroyed Needlessly

    Kara Kenney of ABC TV6 has reported on an investigation into the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS). She interviewed Bryan Ciyou and Robert Schembs, Indianapolis attorneys who represent families in cases involving DCS. They give good advice to parents who are being investigated by DCS. They explain many of the problems and corruption found in Child Social Services that Health Impact News and MedicalKidnap.com report about regularly, including the fact that only 15% of children taken away from their parents are ever substantiated for abuse or neglect. And as we have reported many times, often the category of "neglect" is used very broadly for poor living conditions where abuse is not present.

    The courts move tooo slow. Emergency hearings one month away, emergency? Other “emergency” hearings 2 months away, pushed to 3!

    What about the families that have a parent that should be removed from the picture until they are able to be a stable figure in a child’s life?

    I am thinking about a child whose mother put the child on the school bus, and didn’t bother to communicate with the family for 5 months, she was a town over. She came back into the picture when she learned the father pushed for modification to remove the mother from primary care giver.

    She was in and out of her caregiving for 4 months, and this last time was absent from the 6th of July until the 3rd of October, probably then only because another court modification was being pursued. Same old picture.

    The woman has a history of violent physical and verbal abuse of persons including her 2 older children, with whom responsibility has been severed, her parents and live in boy friends. She either has an undiagnosed mental condition, or drug problem as she is volatile and unpredictable a majority of the time.

    After the first 5.5 month absence, the boy was picked up and physically forced to be placed in his mothers car. Tuesday nite when being pressed again, he said that if he had to go to his mother he would kill himself. Imagine hearing those terrible words coming from a 9 year old. The police officer had a choice to force him in the car. Was he serious about the suicide? Or have him transported to the hospital.

    After evaluation the hospital folks would not release him to his mother, hospital folks had the CPS folks make the decision. He went with his dad. They had security detail escort us to the vehicle. The CPS gal came to do a head count at 5AM when they got home, talked about a safety plan, said you don’t have to open the door for anyone you don’t want to.

    The next day, after even the 5 investigations, the apparently frustrated CPS workers apologized profusely and said it shouldn’t be this way, their hands are tied, the mother can be with the boy. She manipulates and wreaks emotional havoc on the boy. The bright boy becomes underproductive at school and shuts down from most around him.

    The father has the full support from the mothers parents and family in gaining custody of the child. I am the paternal grandma.

    So, seems to me like reverse justice is being served here

    And this should not surprise anyone that looks at this site, All CPS or what ever they call themselves in other states are ONLY interested in the monies that they get from the state and Feds for taking the children out of the house, services, docs, and their lawyers and judges that they own lock stock and barrel, Family court should be renamed to Kangaroo court.
