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."

Parental Rights Systematically Eroded

The parental rights of the American family are being systematically eroded by a Child Protection System that has been put into place under the guise of public good - protecting our children. Apparently, there is a pair of stealth hands under a veil of confidentiality - one belonging to CPS and the other belonging to the Administrative or Family Courts to remove up to 3,000 children per day, nationwide. Since the passage of Mondale's Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) in 1974 which spurred hysterical and slanted hearings, Child Protection or child welfare agencies have been empowered beyond comprehension with all three branches of government. They write their own laws, investigate any complaint from anonymous source and then adjudicate these alleged perpetrators with the subjective opinion of the employee of their agency who is considered not only the expert witness, but the original fact-finder by the family court administrative judge who hears the case. The judge is also a state employee and is supposed to be a neutral arbiter.
In Connecticut, there has been no case law that has been decided for a parent's rights except for Shay vs. Rossi in which the outcome was settlement.

(*These allegations and supporting facts may fairly be characterized as showing a state of consciousness regarding the consequences of the defendants' conduct that was more than negligence or gross negligence.   Their conduct, if proven, could be found to indicate a reckless disregard of the plaintiffs' rights to family privacy and integrity free of unwarranted interference by the state. It falls within the standard of highly unreasonable conduct, involving an extreme departure from ordinary care, in a situation where a high degree of danger of unduly traumatizing the plaintiffs' family was apparent.)

However, if you look at the following link Connecticut Foster Care Statistics, you will notice that the majority of reasons that children are pulled in Connecticut are because of the vague category of neglect, medical needs not met, psychological abuse. In other words, because parents are poor. Once placed in the foster care system, in order for Connecticut to inherit their block grant and other bonuses, they must keep the child in the system for at least nine months. This leads to the next fleecing of parents which is "the best interests of the child" which empowers a judge to terminate the parental rights merely because of the amount of time the child has been, in many cases, wrongfully removed. Too many times, it is delayed by CPS itself so they can assure their monetary status quo. This termination can be done without any probable cause, without a trial by a jury of their peers, without the right to discovery to construct a defense. It, many times, is based on hearsay statements made by one social worker. A social worker who has pressure over their head to not be sued.
Not to make the appropriate decision but to protect their own head whether the child is truly in danger or not. Although this is called "erring on the side of the child" it becomes a license to destroy a happy, emotionally fit child into a damaged article, released into society with little or nothing after the abuses suffered in foster care.
We firmly believe that true child abuse needs to be addressed and that children need protection, but what we have here is a 12 billion dollar CP$ Industry that is used by our government to make money at the cost of any child in our state of Connecticut (or insert state here). The time to act to assert our Parental Rights has come. The American family is the rock on which all society is built. To begin to systematically destroy it will only bring the current societal ills we are beginning to see before us.
