Thank you for clicking on this thread and for taking the time read. If there ever was a time that I need for my fellow members to pay attention and
put aside any BS....it is now. I need your help.
I have been witness to some very sad events recently. A close friend of mine runs a daycare with his wife and close family friend. They run a very
clean, loving place for the kids. Well, there was one particular woman that had her 4 year old son in the daycare and this kid is/was a complete
troublemaker. There had been many cases of this boy becoming violent with other children and seriously injured a little girl by smashing her in the
face with a toy.
My friend and his wife decided that it was no longer a good idea to care for this 4yr old. They told the mother that Friday of that week (this was
about 2 months ago) would be the last day they would take him and that she needed to pay the money for the services she had already received. Friday
came and the mother refused to pay. My friend simply said that was fine...he'd go to small claims and use that process to get the money she owed
Two days later, the mother takes the boy to the hospital and claims that the boy was abused by my friends wife at their daycare facility. No marks,
bruises or anything of the sort could be found by the physician, yet we all know what happened next.....Dept. of Human Services was called in.
They conducted an interview with the boy, the mother and my friends. The boy said he was never harmed, THE MOTHER claimed he was just fine on the
Friday he left, all other families with children in the facility were interviewed and all said they were great with the kids. My friends even released
their security camera footage to police/DHS.
The police investigator claimed there was no cause to believe he was abused and will not file charges.
Here's where it gets tricky.
The DHS investigator will not let it go. His supervisor has said to drop the case because it was clear the Mother was trying to cause trouble due to
the small claims case and my friends are well-known for running a great facility, but he went over his supervisors head to someone that knows nothing
about the case to get a "rubber stamp" to proceed.
Even though police, the DHS supervisor and all relevant witness' have cleared their name...they have been "charged" by DHS, are now required to
prove their innocence to this "rogue" DHS agent and some random judge...not in court, but in a telephone interview later this month.
The Police investigator and the doctor that were part of the case are more than willing to testify on behalf of my friends, but the DHS agent asked
for them to be excluded from the process and the judge agreed!
They have threatened to take away their licence to run a daycare and we even have the DHS agent on recording stating that "he can't wait to take
their kids too". So not only could they lose their business, but their own kids may be stripped from them as well!
Sadly, I have had another family member that was completely steamrolled by DHS a couple ago and it happens to be the same damned DHS agent involved in
this case. She got her kids back after thousands of dollars were spent in court and she is now fighting to be taken off of the Abuse Registry.
It has become obvious that DHS operates on it's own set of rules and even the Police may not be able to do anything.
I have the name of the agent, a few recorded conversations in which he says some really damaging things, the names of the doctor and the Police
investigator, their written reports and all camera footage of the times in question.
My question is this: What do I do?
I have thought about contacting the media, but I wonder of they would be hesitant to follow through on this story. DHS management doesn't care. They
are currently going through many lawsuits in the area for NOT taking kids out of abusive homes, so they are now knee-jerking the other way....opting
to rip kids from their home first instead of taking the time to get all of the facts straight.
The Police want to help....but they cannot do anything. A lawyer will take the case but only if they lose their licence/kids first. We're trying to
stop that from happening.
I'd like to see if there are some bright minds on ATS with some good ideas or knowledge of such issues that would be able to point us in the right
Thanks again for reading and whatever you do....don't start a daycare!
