i feel the Boston DCf is the most corrupt evil agency in the entire country, & that they are no different than a child human trafficing ring, the Govener of Mass. does nothing about it no matter how many calls & letters he recieves, he is a waste of tax payer dollars, & they should all be held accountable for the trauman they have caused children, & families over the years. they need to be exposed for all their unethical cruel behavior, & it should be made public, dismantled, & charges should be filed against every single dcf employee & the Governer himself, for allowing it to continue & turning a deaf ear to the cries of the citizens.

Did you get your grandchild back yet? We are also dealing with DCF in Worcester. It's all such BS.!!

I think the website massoutrage.com is still active? Massachusetts is absolutely in the top ten worst places for DCF abuse

Mothers ! DCF and other agencies would not be involved with you and your childs if the moms and mamas acted like real mothers!.. stop abusing substances!!.. stop having sex with almost any guy. The men are with you to get a chance to have sex with you daughter OR your son!!. Raise your own children moms!. No one else wants to raise them!!
All it takes is one argument w/ one vengeful person for a call to DCF. You don't have to do ANYTHING wrong they just need that anonymous call & bam! DCF is now your & your kids problem. Most people don't know to tell them to get off their property & come back w/ a warrant which they will be unable to do because warrants require evidence not just hearsay!! That is how people end up w/ DCF trouble even if they are great parents. It could happen to you!!!

I agree the dcf corruption have to stop. Children belong to their parents not to foster parents. Foster parents are all about government check. Then you get your children back pregnant, no high diploma, no college. Omg the president have to step into that. Sometime the people who needs help are no the one getting the help.

These posts are pretty old. Are any of you out there still fighting the DCF / CPS? I think we need to join together nationally to fight these SS tyrants. They need to be totally defunded and dismantled. They've been tearing families apart for too many years. They've had their chance, but have used it destroy people's lives instead of saving the kids that really needed their help. 
Enough is enough! Don't stand for anything less than completely shutting them down. Even put the abusive "civil criminals" in prison, if possible. You know they deserve it. Probably more so than half the people already in prison these days. Otherwise, there is no justice for all the kids and parents they tortured for years. Or should we let God worry about their punishment? 
These people are like war criminals in the Socialist war against the family. Let's put them on trial and give a voice to all their victims. Let's hear all their stories of how they were officially abused by the criminals running the CPS and the courts, for  months and months, years and years. Let the children tell their stories of how they were torn from their parents' arms by ruthless liars, and forced to live with strangers, who would continue fabricating prejudice against innocent parents. We'll video tape the whole thing for posterity, so no one can deny what really happened. 
This is big! But it's still too much if a secret because of all the powerful elite getting rich off all that money flowing through the CPS Industrial Complex (CPSIC).
Let me hear from you. Fight for what's right. Fight for your kids! Never give up!
How do we fight them??

I too am fighting DCF in Florida (St Lucie Count). I'm trying to get anew case worker on my case because this one has done nothing but twist statements and lie. My children have been in a shelter for 8 months. Now she is threatening to send them to New Jersey to dead ex husbands brother. I need a really good atty, that will fight for us!

The president is not going to step in. The government will continue to steal our children and destroy our families. They're EVIL DIABOLICAL MONSTERS!

You have. There are no advocates for parents. No one to tell them how to fight back or deal with the intimidation of the DCF workers, courts or in some cases, the foster parents. You are alone fighting for your child. Unless you have money you are assigned a public "Pretender", who will do nothing more than pretend to work for you. I'm sorry, I wish I could help.

I used an assumed name because I do fear retribution by my state DCF. my child was taken from his mother for abuse and neglect last summer I recently contacted the social worker and her supervisor along with forwarding the letter to my court appointed attorney. As of yet the only person who has gotten back to me is my lawyer and thats only because i got lucky and she answered her phone when i called. she asked me some questions i answered them she said she would call the supervisor and when she emailed me back and said it was "lack of communication" I told her i wish to move forward with the complaint and she said if I do "it would drastically reduce my chances of getting my child"
I feel like i've been bullied into submission.
Where do you turn when even your lawyer won't help fight for you.

I'm sorry you are being victimized by the DCF. They are unbelievably abusive and corrupt. We need to band together. I'm in the Boston area too. We should get the thousands of victims together and fight with everything we've got to free the innocent children and stop the widespread abuse of parents and children by DCF career criminals. Socialism is at its' core, and it will destroy the country if we let it.
DCF stole my grandchildren from a hotel the night before they were to return to Florida. They have been gone since 10/12. I have written to every agency including governmental agency's. DCF is violating constitutional rights and the government wont step in to protect American citizens from having our rights violated. DCF runs ramped and our own government leaves then unregulated. MA. also allows people to call in false reports with NO consequence's and seems to be happy about it. I think they make money off of stealing children and adopting them out to people who can not have children. I think they are the most corrupt agency in the United States.They are hurting our most vulnerable population who can not stand up for themselves properly and are easily manipulated because they are just young children. Who WILL stop this? Why isn't this all over the news? Why hasn't our government stop this criminal behavior? This experience has been like the "twilight zone" This is not suppose to happen in a so called free country and so called civilized country.

DCF is the “moving force” behind the on going violations of federal law and violations of the Constitution. This idea of not complying to the 4th and 14th Amendment is so impregnated in their statutes, policies, practices and customs, it affects all and what they do and they take on the persona of the feeling of exaggerated power over parents and that they are totally immune and can do basically do anything they want including engaging in deception, misrepresentation of the facts and lying to the judge. This happens thousands of times every day in the United States where the end justifies the mean even if it is unlawful, illegal and unconstitutional

Until you get YOUR life together you have almost no chance of getting your children back. If you are dependent on abusive men, then you will be in the system for quite a while.
You will have to have a job, be independent, take victim councilling etc. Even though you are the abuse victim, the courts will want to know why you choose to live with someone like that,(putting your children in danger)for your desperation?.
It is Ok if DCF puts your child in danger, they will not have to own up to it. DCF is about money and they will keep your children away or adopt them out, if you do not change your lifestyle.
From what you say happened to you, then you need to imediately change your choice in men and lifestyle. Most people will side with DCF whenever a women brings a violent man into the home of children. Of course I am sure many factors are involved I am just stating the way people will see your case based on the outside.
Only you know the circumstances and it is rare that any judge will listen to your reasons, they just look at the home environment
