What good is any "contract" if the conspirators are all powerful?
RALEIGH - Cleveland County parents who blocked a child-neglect investigation at their home shouldn’t have been the subjects of a probe in the first place, the state Supreme Court ruled Wednesday.
The ruling came in the case of Jim and Mary Ann Stumbo of Kings Mountain, who were visited in September 1999 by county social workers. The Stumbos didn’t allow the workers to enter the home or interview their children.
Investigators had received a tip that the couple’s 2-year-old daughter was running naked through their yard. The girl apparently chased a kitten into the yard and was quickly returned to the house by an older brother.
James Mason, a Virginia lawyer who represented the Stumbos, said the Supreme Court opinion "really stand(s) to protect the rights of families. Under circumstances like this, the social workers shouldn’t even initiate the investigation."
Mr. Mason works for the Purcellville, Va.-based Home Schooling Legal Defense Association.
His group represented the Stumbos because they home-school their children and are members of the association.
Officials at the N.C. Department of Social Services cautioned that they need time to examine the decision. What is there to "examine"? It's more of their "god attitude".
But they said they do not believe it will prevent social workers from investigating abuse and neglect cases because DSS has improved its screening of abuse and neglect tips.

N.C. Supreme Court says social workers may not force interviews
Charges that two Cleveland County parents obstructed a child-neglect investigation by county social workers must be dropped because there was never any evidence Jim and Mary Ann Stumbo neglected their daughter, the state Supreme Court ruled Wednesday.
So what about RESTITUTION from the state for the years of grief and expense to the Stumbos?
Here's the actual decision-

Judges: State agents violated Constitution in corporal-punishment probe

Social workers who entered a private Christian school without a warrant and questioned a 10-year-old boy about corporal punishment violated the U.S. Constitution, a federal appeals court has ruled.
Ruling in favor of parents in Milwaukee, Wis., the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Wednesday the government employees – Carla Heck, John Wichman and supervisor Christine Hansen – in probing alleged child abuse at Greendale Baptist Academy, violated both the Fourth and 14th Amendments.
"This is a tremendous victory for parental rights," said Steve Crampton, chief counsel for the Center for Law & Policy, which represented the parents in the case – John and Jane Doe v. Carla Heck, et al.
Crampton told WND, "This decision puts a stake in the ground telling [social workers], 'The law applies to you, too.'"
"When the people no longer read or understand their Constitution, then they will live in a POLICE STATE" -Robert Wangrud.
Child protection agencies through out the country have been operating systematically uninformed of Civil and Constitutional Rights of the people their agency is mandated to assist. Tactics in their investigations are often problematic, utilization of said tactics that are interpreted as intrusive and full of fabrication.
Officers of the Court/Law are required to take an oath to uphold, support and defend the Constitution of the United States. Many Law Enforcement Officers admittedly have no real understanding of and have not read the Constitution since high school. We have reports of parents who inquired of their Rights being told by Policemen "Those are only on TV".
In comparison, Child Protection Personnel take no such oath.
Family Court Judges openly admit that they are not conducting a Court of Constitutional Judicial Due Process.
Those employed by Child Protection Service Agencies have the empowerment to protect the Nation’s greatest asset and are considered Officers of the Courts.
Individuals who have the empowerment to remove children from predominantly loving homes without consequence regarding choices made in the process should carry the highest level of professional integrity.
Historically this is only the case in very low percentage of the cases.
There is no Liberty to defend as long as the Child Abuse Industry is in Business
There is a Real Problem in the USA
This is a system apparently ignorant of the HIGHEST LAW IN THE LAND, making WAR against the American Family, committing Conspiracy Against Rights and Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law, which are Capital Offenses.
The Amendments to the Constitution are not rights GIVEN to citizens by government. American citizens are SOVEREIGN. The Amendments are the ESSENTIAL RIGHTS specifically enumerated as unalienable, meaning they CANNOT be taken away. There is no fiction of law which can convert the natural born (sovereign) citizen of this country into a subject, unless he/she gives themselves away as a slave (waiver of rights). It has to be knowing, willing, intentionally, with full disclosure.
And that is how the Child Abuse Industry operates, without the "full disclosure" part. If people allow a CPS caseworker to come in their house and talk with them, they have WAIVED their Constitutional Rights and Miranda Rights and are "volunteering" for "services". This is an example of EVERYBODY being ignorant of the Constitution, including CPS case workers.
