DCS should be druged tested and screened before they make any plans for any child. The workes have to be on something to make such poor judgement about our children here in cocke county. And they also should know something about the families they are judging. I had dealing with them a while back and the worker was so involved wih herself she forgot about the kids. Not only that she had hard felings against me andlet the kids pay. I have seen poor conduct but that takes he cake. ne other thing that they do is build false hope for the children ex: they say things like do you want your father in your life when the child says can you do that they say NO. Who put these people there? What give them he right to judge? Most of them don't even have kids.

If you didnt use drug, drink, break the law, or mistreat your kids to start with you wouldnt be dealing with DCS.

It amazes me at how people do things to cause the problems in their life and then cry and complain about what happens to them and expect people to feel sorry for them.

If you are a good honest hard working parent you won't be in the system and wont be dealing with DCS.

I used to work for DCS and I delt with parents who were innocent, but whose daughters and step daughters would accuse them of sexual abuse because they did not like the rules at home. I also had parents who did not qualify for the kind of insurance their children needed for treatment and had to be taken into custody to receive it. I had children who gave into peer pressure and did drugs and committed crimes whose parents were decent.
Don't judge a parent until you have walked in their shoes.

I too had dealings with them over my Grandkids who were living with a registered sex offender. They supposedly investigated and dismissed it! Not once but twice! Thank God they are no longer there!
They need to do their job and investigate each complaint. They sure didn't do it with this case!

Amy Ball needs outta there!! My cousin n his gf are druggies n she closed there case on all three of there children. One died. The other two they still have. The gf failed drug tests with all three of them but she cleans up long enough after they are born, to convince amy that they are clean. As soon as Amy closes the case, which is usually after 1 drug test, they go back to the same shit!! And after every child, their choice of drugs get even worse!! She is a sorry piece of shit!! They all need to be more serious and concerned about the children they can protect!!

Well one of them is family to J R in Bybee. And didn't I hear they busted a Moonshine steel at his house? Why wasn't he charged for it???? Do you think his family could have had it hushed up????

I agree with one who knows.... until you have walked in someones shoes don't judge w/o facts. I have actually been on both sides of this issue. I have been falsely accused by ppl who were themselves removed from children's lives for the safety of the children & the peace of the family where sexual abuse had taken place on the side of the accusers. But I have also seen instances where children are left in homes where they are neglected, abused & continually exposed to drugs, alcohol etc. And, I have seen instances where children falsely accused parents of all manner of neglect & abuse b/c they either didn't like the rules or even b/c their family was poor & they wanted to be moved into a home w/more money & stuff.

I can tell you I did not appreciate continually being falsely accused by the same group of ppl. But, I have to say even though it was a worry & aggravation to go through that multiple times I am glad that most dcs workers are diligent in their duties. They continued to come out & investigate etc & I believe I w/the help of my children have convinced them that the accusations were indeed false & that my children are safe & well cared for (yes, even to the point of over-protection & having rules). None of the experiences I had w/dcs were pleasant & I would not want to go through any of that again but having said that I also would not ever want their job. It is a VERY BIG responsibility & I think most of them view it as such & do the job b/c they care. I am sure as w/most things there are those who don't, matter of fact I met one that I think did not belong in that line of work, but mostly b/c she had become so jaded & b/c she did not have any background in or w/disciplining children. She seemed to have the mentality that as long as the child was getting what they wanted they were in good hands but most know that children don't always want what they need & vice versa.

Think the "system" is screwed up? Fight to change the system. Write to our Represenatives and Congressmen with your concerns. It is going to stay the same unless we fight change it. If your "Case Worker" oversteps their bounds, call Viola Miller (head of cps) in Nashville and report it. Know your rights and NEVER open your door to these people unless they have a warrent. Keep your door locked and talk to them thru the door. they will lie to you and tell you if you cooperate the system will go easier on you and as soon as you let them in they will look for any reason they can to take your child. No matter what you do it is still going to be hell on you and your family. They will use your childs life to terrorize you into cooperating. Again, know your rights because Judge John Bell will not protect them in court because they seem to have a back door to his office. Here is a place to start.

So what you're saying is DCS workers are not living things? Since G-d didn't give a box of rocks sense, because it is not a living thing.

Don't judge a parent until you have walked in their shoes.
So you are saying if you do not have insurance for your kids they can be taken away from you? Uh, I know for a fact that is not true. And if it was and the kid was put into state custody then the state would pay the insurance not the new family. I also don't get what removing a kid from their home because they commit a crime is suppose to help. Esp if the parents are good people. You remove them and put them in foster care? Why? Makes no sense!
