Child Protective Services located in El Paso County, Colorado Springs, Colorado, often will take children out of the home without good cause. Once CPS gets involved in a family's life, it takes two years before the heartache ends. It usually begins with some gossip to CPS and often children are taken from the home by police and put into a foster home for months at a time. If the parents do not have adequate income for a decent attorney, children can be adopted out or become wards of the state within one year. Facts and real evidence are not needed in El Paso County family court. CPS requires parents to go to counseling and the counselors divulge personal details straight to the social workers regarding personal, emotional, or family problems. Many of the judges, police, social workers, and attorneys are corrupt in El Paso County. If parents rely on court appointed attorneys, this is a sad mistake, since these types of attorneys often do not take their jobs seriously. Judges in family court often take away parental rights for no cause and end up wrecking the lives of families who were once good families. Social workers often have dysfunctional childhoods which makes them behave like tyrants toward parents. If you are in a bad marriage, have alcohol problems, or emotional problems, get help. We all need help from time to time. No person or family is perfect. Get help without the aid of county employees. They cannot be trusted. There have been many cases of social workers being harmed or injured, and usually this is due to abusive and violent tactics of CPS. I have heard about several CPS workers from Colorado Springs who were audited or arrested for tax fraud after being investigaed for failing to pay income taxes. Social workers are not honest, God fearing citizens, and by no means should you bring your personal or family problems out in public, unless you want to ruin the lives of yourself, your spouse, and your children. Stay far away from the CPS agency. They are hell on wheels and God will handle these types of vicious people as justice will be served.

It is sad that the federal government funds the Child Protective Services and does not monitor them much since they have run amok monitoring themselves. They have too much power in this country. They do not use any rules of evidence in court and base many of their decisions on heresay or from what the other spouse has said. Most truly violent parents never have the CPS contact them since they often try very hard to stay away from them. Most families who end up on CPS list are those who have marital, alcohol, or emotional problems and have not received treatment for them.

There are so many woman in Colorado Springs who are abused by the family court system. Judge Gilbert Martinez is a sexest. He believes woman should be subservinet to the man and makes the woman of Colorado Springs the objects of this beliefs. He leaves woman and their children devastated by his rulings and should be removed from the family court system. Colorado Springs needs to get it's head out of the clouds and pull this diabolical woman hater off the bench.

I have a friend who got a divorce. His spouse lied about his income and even though he proved to the court that she lied, they based his child-support payments based on her lie. Then he got laid off and couldn't pay all his support. So they pulled his drivers license. As a result, he can't even GET a job because he has no drivers license. It is a Catch-22 situation. No support, no license, but with no license, there is no job and no support payments. Is this LOGICAL????

Wow! There are more people who feel the same way I do about el paso county. Sexism rears its ugly head in the courtrooms in Colorado Springs. This requires an investigation. How dumb can any woman be to deliberately want to have contact with a sexist jerk? What if we were to suggest applying racist terminology to certain judges? If sexism is permitted, which I genuinely believe it is, then we can define a person's ethnicity in a derogatory manner in all fairness. Sick. A certain judge seriously needs to be off the bench. Wow!!!

Martinez has the lowest approval rating of all judges in El Paso County. Something is very wrong with this situation. I despise Colorado Springs due to the experiences I've had in Division 10. He works on the re-entry board in CCJJ and I REFUSE to donate to CCJRC or CCJJ due to his presence in the system. This is a smokescreen. No compassion. No sense of what true justice and a passion for rehabilitation is all about. Self-serving. Lives and families are shattered without an ounce of conscience. I believe in Karma. NO one can operate with such an inflated sense of ego/arrogance and not pay the price. Much higher forces are observing all of us. MUCH higher. The judge WILL be judged.

This comment will provide you with more information on how Martinez conducts himself. Carefully read how violent and dangerous this person is that was brought to him and Martinez REFUSED to charge him. Martinez DISMISSED the case. Yes! "Safety is priority #1 to the public." Nope.(Not even the children are safe, CPS. Collaboration?) He likes to bully the native Coloradans and the young who don't have prior felony charges. The charges this Lopez guy did include major use of drugs (minor uses are prison time), stalking his ex-wife and holding her (kidnapping), forcing a business owner to pay $80,000.00 while holding him in a hotel and pistol-whipping him --- all the while threateneing to kill him (kidnapping again). This is only what we KNOW. There must be far more. It's a matter of public record FOR THE PEOPLE. Sexism and favoritism are obvious.

There were prosecutors and a detective that wanted this terrorist held, but Martinez dismissed the request for a warrant. If there are politicians who approve of this kind of 'justice' while families are gleefully destroyed, there is more corruption than we can imagine.

Google:*judge gilbert martinez colorado springs* and you will find an article "Deported criminals sometimes return" there. Print it. I'm sure the 1st amendment is corrupted by corruption and it will soon disappear. MAKE SEVERAL COPIES. Those of you victimized need to know!

Thank you.

When Judge Toth was on the bench, he had NO sense of justice or compassion. He was self serving and evil. He shattered the lives of children and families without a bit of conscience.

I believe in Karma. NO one can operate with such an inflated sense of ego/arrogance and not pay the price. Much higher forces are observing all of us. MUCH higher. The judge WILL be judged. Human Services and the family court system has more corruption than you can imagine.

Many of the judges, police, social workers, and attorneys are corrupt in El Paso County. I can name several people who all are involved in this corruption a few years ago: D. Richard Toth, judge, Barbara Drake director of DSS, Donald Shive (counselor), Beverly Wells (social worker)
Paula Lyrse, and Rita Wiley (parenting program,

The same thing goes on here. The Lawyers and Judges know that these people are lying and commiting pergory while abusing thier authority. I have proof and was told to be quiet because the initial lies told in my grandsons case weren't important. They have done everything they can to keep the baby from his mother and extended family to include lying about not being able to place him in this county. Isn't there anyone out there willing to expose these terrorists? How can they walk in like Nazis and take a child for no goood reason, deny the grandparents for no good reason then set my daughter up for failure?

nana. I wish it were easy to reveal what is truly happening in this deceitful El Paso County, Colorado. We are thousands strong!!! These judges are FEW! Furthermore, THEY serve US. WE do NOT serve THEM! The sooner the average person shows courage and dedication to justice, the quicker these arrogant, hateful SERVANTS will be removed. VOTE THEM OUT!!! Yes ... vote those who sit on the benches who support the corruption OFF THE BENCH! If the majority of people did that, they would have to be honest and fair in their decisions. CPS gets thousands of $$$ for adopting children away from their natural parents with or without cause. Hence, it is very easy to realize that they will fabricate in order to profit. Vote Martinez off the bench in 2010. DO NOT retain this 'judge'. There is a price for all of us to pay keeping his ego in power. Remove that power. It's a beginning. Sends a powerful message. WE THE PEOPLE!!!

Heartsick Nana.If you feel you have a genuine grievance, please contact the local Colorado Springs newspaper, The Gazette. Ask to speak with a reporter. Present your evidence. EXPOSE THEM! Don't be afraid. Fear is exactly what they wish to instill. I know if I had evidence and was "told" to keep quiet, that would be a HUGE mistake on their part. I'm a loose cannon. When I experience injustice, the event gets told. People NEED TO KNOW. I hope you do this in the name of your grandchild. Truth will not harm you or yours. It will harm THEM. Good luck!

There are 4 people living here in Columbus that had horror stories to share about COS CPS. They called the Franklin County Children Services (FCCS) here and they were in and out in 20 minutes and never came back. The only thing that they found wrong is that one of the smoke detectors didn't have a battery. The FCCS worker even supplied the battery. That was 3 years ago. If you are having a problem with CPS, and you didn't do anything wrong, then you should come to Columbus. CPS will contact FCCS. FCCS will visit and then go. They're not the least bit fond of CPS anywhere in Colorado, not just the Springs. They check it out because they have to, not because they want to.

You are SO right, Heartsick Nana! There should be absolutely NO fear at all! This is what they depend on and this is why they get away with diabolical behaviors and actions. I don't understand the concept of fear when rights are being stomped upon. There should be outrage!!!
