Our Grand Children are victims of;

"Protect the "system" at all costs. The "system" is the only ultimate sacred cow - not any particular law or constitution, but only "the system." Because, ultimately, it is the system which makes certain that the individuals functioning within it - from judges to lawyers, to prosecutors, to politicians, to businessmen - have their places and positions, and opportunities and pecking order, and future."

In 1696, England first used the legal principle of parens patriae, which gave the royal crown care of "charities, infants, idiots, and lunatics returned to the chancery." This principal of parens patriae has been identified as the statutory basis for U.S. governmental intervention in families' child rearing practices.

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
Preamble of the original "organic" Constitution

"We hold these truths to be self-evident. That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness."

Lawsuit says CPS workers shortchanged on OT pay

"Child-welfare investigators and caseworkers responsible for protecting Texas children are forced to work off the clock and shortchanged on overtime pay, the U.S. Department of Labor alleges in a lawsuit filed Wednesday.
The lawsuit, in federal court in Austin, claims 800 current and former employees of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services Child Protective Services division are owed more than $1 million in back overtime wages. The government also is seeking damages equal to that amount."

"The lawsuit, which stems from a statewide investigation into the agency's employment practices since June 2008, alleges that supervisors instruct employees not to record all hours they work, that payroll records are not kept, and that the nonpayment of overtime is continuing."

"CPS denied the allegations..."

"The federal Fair Labor Standards Act requires that covered employees be paid at least the $7.25 minimum wage for all hours worked. Those who work more than 40 hours in any week also must be paid overtime at 1½ times their regular rate of pay, including commissions, bonuses and incentive pay."


That's about $1200 for each worker. This is the best part. "...including commissions, bonuses and incentive pay"

Commissions, bonuses and incentive pay for what? Taking children, putting them in foster care and then adoption? The more the merrier? How would they get commissions, bonuses and incentive pay if not?

One question... If say, a social worker comes by your house at about 7PM and forcefully takes your kids and he is not getting paid, would that meen he would not be working in an official capacity? Wouldn't he just be another joe blow kidnapping kids?

Would CPS (OCS) have employment records that would prove he was "on duty" at that time?
