Are America's children being sold for a profit....
EDITED WITH THE HELP OF SUPER MODS
WITH TONS OF GRATATUDE............

INTODUCTION:
I know that for most people here on ATS this would not be conspiracy worthy. Foster Care
does good for many children, Right? What if I could show you it was an unchecked system.
That this system is able to make alot of money from these children. That to the scared parents,
this system is in fact above the law. What if I could show you the children are being used as
ginny pigs for drugs. What if I can peel back this curtain and show you the curroption hidden
with in. Would you listen or turn away????

Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997
Purpose: To promote the adoption of children in foster care

~Extended categories of services to include time-limited reunification services and adoption promotion and support services
~Required criminal records checks for foster/adoptive parents who receive Federal funds on behalf of a child, unless a State opted out of this requirement
***Accelerated permanent placement:
~Required States to initiate court proceedings to free a child for adoption once that child had been waiting in foster care for at least 15 of the most recent 22 months, unless there was an exception
~Allowed children to be freed for adoption more quickly in extreme cases
Promoted adoptions:
$$$$Rewarded States that increased adoptions with incentive funds
~Required States to use reasonable efforts to move eligible foster care children towards permanent placements
~Prohibited States from delaying/denying placements of children based on the geographic location of the prospective adoptive families
~Required States to document child-specific efforts to move children into adoptive homes
~Required shorter time limits for making decisions about permanent placements:
~Required permanency hearings to be held no later than 12 months after entering foster care
~Required States to initiate termination of parental rights proceedings after the child has been in foster care 15
of the previous 22 months, except if not in the best interest of the child, or if the child is in the care of a
relative

>>>The above is from their own site as an overview summary of the law. What exactly does this mean??
After a child is removed from the home an adjudication hearing happens in no less then 3 mths. After that a second hearing by law is allowed to take up to 12 mths. At this point the child as been in the system for 15 mths. The now alloted time for them to be bumped for adoption and terminate parental rights. Yes I relize the law doest specificaly state this. But there is a loop hole the size of a crater there.Does that seem to be a fair and uncorrupt system?


§ 6361. Organization for child protective services. [P.a. state statutes Domestic Relations]
(b) Staff and organization.--The county agency shall have a sufficient staff of sufficient
qualifications to fulfill the purposes of this chapter and be organized in a way to maximize the
continuity of responsibility, care and services of individual workers toward individual children
& families. The department, by regulation, shall set forth staff-to-family ratios for the various
activities required of the county agency under this chapter, including reports and investigations
of suspected child abuse, risk assessment and the provision or monitoring of services to
abused children & families.

www.legis.state.pa.us...

>>>To the untrained eye this seem's on the up and up. But to the trained eye not so.
The problem with the Adoption and Safe Families Act and this is now there is a system
in complete control. Since they are the sole investigaters in child abuse incidents.
Their conclusion becomes the only one. At least the police have I.A. to over see any suspected
coroption within the department. Don't think its that bad, read the next statute......

§ 6362. Responsibilities of county agency for child protective
(a) General rule.--The county agency shall be the sole civil
agency responsible for receiving and investigating all reports
of child abuse made pursuant to this chapter, specifically
including, but not limited to, reports of child abuse in
facilities operated by the department and other public agencies,
for the purpose of providing protective services to prevent
further abuses to children and to provide or arrange for and
monitor the provision of those services necessary to safeguard
and ensure the well-being and development of the child and to
preserve and stabilize family life wherever appropriate.
(b) Assumption of responsibility by department.--When the
suspected abuse has been committed by the county agency or any
of its agents or employees, the department shall assume the role
of the agency with regard to the investigation and directly
refer the child for services.

www.legis.state.pa.us...

>>>> Now you can see the delemia of this. Not only do they not have the years of training
under their belt that a detective might or even a forensic scientist. But they are aslo in charge
of their own corruption's. Nice right??


§ 6318. Immunity from liability.
(b) Presumption of good faith.--For the purpose of any civil
or criminal proceeding, the good faith of a person required to
report pursuant to section 6311 (relating to persons required to
report suspected child abuse) and of any person required to make
a referral to law enforcement officers under this chapter shall
be presumed.

www.legis.state.pa.us...

>>>>I thought this might be prudent to the discussion. When a CPS agency investigate's you.
It is considered a criminal investigation.[Since they are solely incharge of child abuse]
So by this statute, any nutt job with a grudge is held in higher regaurd then you.
In a child abuse investigation, its not innocent untill proven guilty. But the exact opposite.

Still not sure how corrupt the system can really be. Here's just a few court cases I dug up.
Constitutional issues and court cases:

~In May 2007, the United States 9th Circuit Court of Appeals found in ROGERS v. COUNTY OF SAN JOAQUIN,
No. 05-16071[17] that a CPS social worker who removed children from their natural parents
into foster care without obtaining judicial authorization, was acting without due process and
without exigency violated the 14th Amendment and Title 42 United State Code Section 1983.
The Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution says that a state may not make
a law that abridges ".the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States" and no state
may "deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to
anyperson within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."
Title 42 United States Code Section 1983 states that citizens can sue in federal courts
any person that acting under a color of law to deprive the citizens of their civil rights under
the pretext of a regulation of a state.

en.wikipedia.org...


~In case of Santosky v. Kramer, 455 US 745, Supreme Court reviewed a case when Department of Social Services removed two younger children from their natural parents only because the parents had been previously found negligent toward their oldest daughter. When the third child was only three days old, DSS transferred him to a foster home on the ground that immediate removal was necessary to avoid imminent danger to his life or health. The Supreme Court vacated previous judgment and stated: "Before a State may sever completely and irrevocably the rights of parents in their natural child, due process requires that the State support its allegations by at least clear and convincing evidence. But until the State proves parental unfitness, the child and his parents share a vital interest in preventing erroneous termination of their natural relationship".

en.wikipedia.org...


~Also District of Columbia Court of Appeals conclude that the lower trial court erred in rejecting
the relative custodial arrangement selected by the natural mother who tried to preserve her
relationship with the child. The previous judgment granting the foster mother's adoption
petition was reversed, and the case remanded to the trial court to vacate the orders granting
adoption and denying custody, and to enter an order granting custody to the child's relative.

en.wikipedia.org...


~One study by Johns Hopkins University found that the rate of sexual abuse within the foster-care system is more than four times as high as in the general population; in group homes, the rate of sexual abuse is more than 28 times that of the general population.

www.suite101.com...


~An Indiana study found three times more physical abuse and twice the rate of sexual abuse in foster homes than in the general population.

www.alberni.ca...


~A study of foster children in Oregon and Washington State found that nearly one third reported being abused by a foster parent or another adult in a foster home. These statistics do not speak to the situation these children are coming from, but it does show the very large problem of child-on-child sexual abuse within the system. There have been several notable lawsits concerning sexual abuse and negligence that caused review of the foster care system in some states:

www.campaignsitebuilder.com...


~In 2010, an ex-foster child was awarded $30 million by jury trial in California
(Santa Clara County) for sexual abuse damages that happened to him in his foster home from
1995 to 1999. The foster parent, John Jackson, was licensed by the state, despite the
fact that he abused his own wife and son, overdosed on drugs and was arrested for drunken
driving. In 2006, Jackson was convicted in Santa Clara County of nine counts of lewd
or lascivious acts on a child by force, violence, duress, menace and fear, and seven counts of
lewd or lascivious acts on a child under 14, according to the Santa Clara County District
Attorney's Office. The sex acts he forced the children in his foster care to perform sent him
to prison for 220 years. Later in 2010, Giarretto Institute, the private foster family
agency responsible for licensing and monitoring Jackson's foster home and others,
also was found to be negligent and liable for 75 percent of the abuse that was inflicted on the victim,and Jackson himself was liable for the rest.

~In 2009, Oregon Department of Human Services agreed to pay $2 million into a fund for the
future care of twins who were allegedly abused by their foster parents; this was the largest
such settlement in the agency's history.[92] According to the civil rights suit filed on request of
twins' adoptive mother in December 2007 in U.S. Federal Court, the children were kept in
makeshift cages cribs covered with chicken wire secured by duct tape—in a darkened bedroom
known as the dungeon.
The brother and sister often went without food, water or human touch. The boy, who had a
shunt put into his head at birth to drain fluid, didn't receive medical attention, so when police
rescued the twins he was nearly comatose. The same foster family previously took into their
care hundreds of other children over nearly four decades.DHS said the foster parents
deceived child welfare workers during the checkup visits.

Several lawsuits were brought in 2008 against the Florida Department of Children & Families (DCF), accusing it of mishandling reports that Thomas Ferrara, 79, a foster parent, was molesting young girls.The suits claimed that even though there were records of sexual misconduct allegations against Ferrara in 1992, 1996, and 1999, the DCF continued to place foster children with Ferrara and his then-wife until 2000.Ferrara was arrested in 2001, after a 9-year-old girl told detectives he regularly molested her over two years and threatened to hurt her mother if she told anyone. Records show that Ferrara had as many as 400 children go through his home during his 16 years as a licensed foster parent (from 1984 to 2000).Officials stated that the lawsuits over Ferrara ended up costing the DCF almost $2.26 million.[95] Similary, in 2007 Florida's DCF paid $1.2 million to settle a lawsuit that alleged DCF ignored complaints that another mentally disabled Immokalee girl was being raped by her foster father, Bonifacio Velazquez, until the 15-year-old gave birth to a child.

In a class action lawsuit Charlie and Nadine H. v. McGreevey was filed in federal court by "Children’s Rights" New York organization on behalf of children in the custody of the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS). The complaint alleged violations of the childrens' constitutional rights and their rights under Title IV-E of the Social Security Act, the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, Early Periodic Screening Diagnosis and Treatment, 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Multiethnic Placement Act (MEPA). In July 2002, the federal court granted plaintiffs’ experts access to 500 children’s case files, allowing plaintiffs to collect information concerning harm to children in foster care through a case record review. These files revealed numerous cases in which foster children were abused, and DYFS failed to take proper action. On June 9, 2004, the child welfare panel appointed by the parties approved the NJ State’s Reform Plan. The court accepted the plan on June 17, 2004. The same organization also filed similar lawsuits against several other states in recent years that caused some of the states to start child welfare reforms.

>>>>Not very many people are able to take a stance against this system of corruption.
But what seems to be worse in my eye's. Is that most just dont see it.
One is due to confidentiality and a great p.r. campaign perpretrated by cps.
They are quick to show who they saved. But not the many they have failed.
those stories are usely leaked out by family and community members.
Sometimes even busted by a reporter who combs through police reports.
Two is that most people are unware of the corruption deep within this system.
But one person a senator was able to see.

Nancy Schaefer was the first state senator to speak out forcefully, truthfully about the corruption of Child Protective Services. She was murdered, there went alot of famalie's last hope's. Someone people would listen to. Instead we have "The bad parents who desrve this" [According to the system] not haveing their voice's heard.

Here is some of what her report on child protective services had to say:
Visit the full report here:

fightcps.com...

"In this report, I am focusing on the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services.
However, I believe Child Protective Services nationwide has become corrupt and that the entire
system is broken almost beyond repair. I am convinced parents and families should be warned
of the dangers."

"· that caseworkers and social workers are oftentimes guilty of fraud. They withhold evidence.
They fabricate evidence and they seek to terminate parental rights.
However, when charges are made against them, the charges are ignored;"

"· that The Adoption and the Safe Families Act, set in motion by President Bill Clinton, offered
cash“bonuses” to the states for every child they adopted out of foster care. In order to receive the
“adoption incentive bonuses” local child protective services need more children. They must have
merchandise (children) that sell and you must have plenty of them so the buyer can choose.
Some counties are known to give a $4,000 bonus for each child adopted and an additional $2,000
for a “special needs” child. Employees work to keep the federal dollars flowing;"

"· that if the lives of children were improved by removing them from their homes, there might
be a greater need for protective services, but today all children are not always safer. Children,
of whom I am aware, have been raped and impregnated in foster care and the head of a
Foster Parents Association in my District was recently arrested because of child molestation;"

" that The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect in 1998 reported that six times as many
children died in foster care than in the general public and that once removed to official “safety”,
these children are far more likely to suffer abuse, including sexual molestation than in the
general population."


That according to the California Little Hoover Commission Report in 2003, 30% to 70% of the
children in California group homes do not belong there and should not have been removed from
their homes

>>>>>>>>She had access to numerous case files plus poeple themselves who directly told her their story.
She then immedietly took action after her investigation into this matter. One of her main complaints
over her blogs was as I stated. CPS should not be performing any criminal investigation's. That should
fall under the police dept. Plus fall into rule's of evidence. Which CPS virtually has none.

This set of circumstances is unfair to parent's and their children. There should be stronger rules
in place. Whats worse is atleast criminals get a chance to earn thier rights back. Not the
parents who have become victims of a corrupt system with no way out.

You should see the corrupion in the canadian system.
the childrens aid society the equivalent of the child.protection.services in the states.

They have been exposed.numerous times for widespread corruption.
things like abuse of expense accounts in the millions, widespread fraud, rigging court cases against parents.

They intentionally keep.cases open on unfit parents forever while never removing the kids from the parents care so they can drain more taxpayer funds. The parents who have little to no.evidence against them are the ones who lose their kids and theyend up tied up in the legal system forever.

The local CAS where I live is known as a supremely corrupt branch. Having lots of poverty and domestic violence in the community these people have made a killing for years. Their so.called public meetings have been indefinately closed to the public, they offer no.transparency in their organization even though they have been ordered several times. They have refused audits by ombudsmen. They don't disclose the.minutes of their meetings even though its supposed to be public. Many local businessmen, who are suspects in corruption themselves, sit on their board of directors and even a city councillor.

Recently the.local branch was given millions in new funding despite the fact that they produce little results. They have been accuses of secret backdoor dealings with.local family lawyers also.

The same organization also filed similar lawsuits against several other states in recent years that caused some of the states to start child welfare reforms.

>>>>Not very many people are able to take a stance against this system of corruption.
But what seems to be worse in my eye's. Is that most just dont see it.
One is due to confidentiality and a great p.r. campaign perpretrated by cps.
They are quick to show who they saved. But not the many they have failed.
those stories are usely leaked out by family and community members.
Sometimes even busted by a reporter who combs through police reports.
Two is that most people are unware of the corruption deep within this system.
But one person a senator was able to see.

Nancy Schaefer was the first state senator to speak out forcefully, truthfully about the corruption of Child Protective Services. She was murdered, there went alot of famalie's last hope's. Someone people would listen to. Instead we have "The bad parents who desrve this" [According to the system] not haveing their voice's heard.

Here is some of what her report on child protective services had to say:
Visit the full report here:

fightcps.com...

"In this report, I am focusing on the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services.
However, I believe Child Protective Services nationwide has become corrupt and that the entire
system is broken almost beyond repair. I am convinced parents and families should be warned
of the dangers."

"· that caseworkers and social workers are oftentimes guilty of fraud. They withhold evidence.
They fabricate evidence and they seek to terminate parental rights.
However, when charges are made against them, the charges are ignored;"

"· that The Adoption and the Safe Families Act, set in motion by President Bill Clinton, offered
cash“bonuses” to the states for every child they adopted out of foster care. In order to receive the
“adoption incentive bonuses” local child protective services need more children. They must have
merchandise (children) that sell and you must have plenty of them so the buyer can choose.
Some counties are known to give a $4,000 bonus for each child adopted and an additional $2,000
for a “special needs” child. Employees work to keep the federal dollars flowing;"

"· that if the lives of children were improved by removing them from their homes, there might
be a greater need for protective services, but today all children are not always safer. Children,
of whom I am aware, have been raped and impregnated in foster care and the head of a
Foster Parents Association in my District was recently arrested because of child molestation;"

" that The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect in 1998 reported that six times as many
children died in foster care than in the general public and that once removed to official “safety”,
these children are far more likely to suffer abuse, including sexual molestation than in the
general population."

"· That according to the California Little Hoover Commission Report in 2003, 30% to 70% of the
children in California group homes do not belong there and should not have been removed from
their homes"

>>>>>>>>She had access to numerous case files plus poeple themselves who directly told her their story.
She then immedietly took action after her investigation into this matter. One of her main complaints
over her blogs was as I stated. CPS she not be performing any criminal investigation's. That should
fall under the police dept. Plus fall into rule's of evidence. Which CPS virtually has none.

This set of circumstances is unfair to parent's and their children. There should be stronger rules
in place. Whats worse is atleast criminals get a chance to earn thier rights back. Not the
parents who have become victims of a corrupt system with no way out.

Thanks for every one's time

That is very true. The sad thing to me about this though is we are allowing
our own goverment to do so.
And as a previous poster stated it goes on in thier country as well.
It gets much worse though. Wait till I get started into the rest.

I hope by the end of this I will have pulled back the curtain and no one will
be able to ignore it anylonger.
Those kids are stripped from everything they love and hold dear.
Then are thrust into a corrupt system, where even their attorneys dont care.
Their misery equals big buisness to the goverment.

The only person those kids now have is us

are the majority of these children given up for adoption by their parents? is that how most of them end up in the system?...i think that "adults" should really think about it before sooo many of them keep having kids that they either dont want or are'nt fit to care for. then the number of kids in the system would decline...

I have watched this and see it get worse over the years. I don't know if you covered the fact that most cps workers are contract workers who don't actually work for the government. People can laugh at Alex Jones all they want but he has covered this issue multiple times.

I do agree with you but the problem has become some county's need this income,
That is provided by foster children in their systems.
There has been findings of falsified evidence, denying legal rights, and alot of other
problems.

Like a woman in my nieghborhood lost her 3 young kids for neglect.
Sure sounds like she's a bad mom.
Come to find out she could not afford a $20 child gate for the kitchen. If the
worker really cared. She could have went into the petty cash or bought one for the family.
The sad part was the women did try to keep them out of the kitche. She laid 2 chairs on their
sides on the floor. The legs locked around the wall and locked them into place.
My family would call this old school, before fisherprice and all them made gates.

Then add ontop of everything, they tend to be put in worse situations then thier home life.
The system is broken, very simple. It needs to be fixed with stricter safe guards in place.
All reports should be investigated by a team of experts in the field. ie cops, fbi,
Not people who only have a bachelors or masters dergree in social services.
These are famalies and live's. They deserve better.

You are right, its a goverment office.
In alot of cases, they are clerks of the court. Or interns in the social service field.
They are already sworn in.
Which is why if you see an adjudication hearing their evidence doenst have to be
sworn in. And niether do they before they testify before the judge.

§ 6318. Immunity from liability.
(b) Presumption of good faith.--For the purpose of any civil
or criminal proceeding, the good faith of a person required to
report pursuant to section 6311 (relating to persons required to
report suspected child abuse) and of any person required to make
a referral to law enforcement officers under this chapter shall
be presumed.

They fall in under this law and many others. I am trying to dig up my old links.

4,000 to 6,000 dollars per a child. Depending on if the child had special needs.
This is what the federal goverment pays the county foster care agency for every child
they adopt out. The adoptive parents pay nothing. They actually get paid something to
adopt the children. (NICE DEAL HUH)
But there are cases where certain group homes earn over $101,000.00 per a child per a yr.
Which that one is paid through the well fair offices.
My old group home earned that on me a year, but I only got a 5 dollar allowance lol.
