CPS has no idea what they are doing in Kentucky, They have hired some real winners. To see, time and time again the same workers (A Cook) make the wrong assesment time and time again and NO ONE cares how she effects childrens lifes.

If CPS is over worked, then why have they come out to my house to see if I lock my 15 year old son in his bedroom? Really> Is that visit worthy? My ex-husband made an "Anonymous" report that I was locking my 15 year old, 5"11 (I am 5'4 and 105 pounds)in his bedroom and keeping him there. I guess I let him out for school and church...whatever. Bedroom doors lock from the inside, not the out.
They sent a CPS worker out to interview me and my WHOLE family, including the 15 year old. I had to show the CPS worker the bedroom door...really? I guess they wanted to see what the inside of our nice home looked like, and my nice, clean, well treated children looked like.
Pick on someone else! Or charge the person that made the false report!

CPS cleans up the trash left behind when irresponsible parents have kids and do a poor job trying to parent them.
People who hate CPS are always the same people who had kids that they could not responsibly parent, and they hold a grudge because they were called out on it and humiliated for their shortcomings.
Are you really saying that cps are the responsible people who clean up the trash left behind? Are you saying that the children are trash cause that would be the only thing that is left behind in situations that involve cps. You got some nerve talking the trash you have and cps is not following the law their jobs and our rights so shut your mouth go back to whatever county you work for and get back to me when you know what the hell your talking about.

....I was just reading some of these posts, and This one is not true, Not only have I spoken to a cps worker, actually a couple of them, and police officers, they've both told me that I can spank my child. And I'm white. so I don't know where your getting your information, but This claim is simply not true.

I was at a store riding my bike. My child was staying the night a close friends house. Police report states I was by myself chfs statement states rebecca was in my care reports didn't match. My court appointed lawyer told me to plead guilty an judge Kennith goff would grant my motion for visitations. Next court date he revoked them. As well as withholding evidence that's a class d felony. I've contacted governor Beshear FBI AN A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR. AS WELL AS A INTERLOCKUTORY APPEAL TO BUMP THE CASE FOR FUTURE INVESTIGATION. I BEDS ALL THE HELP I CAN GET. THANKS. KY HAS THE HIGHEST CHILDREN REMOVAL RATING THAN ANY OTHER STATE.

It was court ordered by Judge Spainhour that Paul Mason have no physical punishment to our two children. I contacted CPS after Bernheim Middle School about a police report I have that states there was a "physical altercation" between Paul and Austin Mason; and, Austin called the police over abuse. CPS never returned any of my phone calls and Paul Mason still has his rights to both of our children although he has clearly broken court orders about child abuse restrictions.This whole case of ours in Bullitt County has been something that is so unreal that people just cannot believe it is really happening in the United States but it is.

If you are an officer in a Democrat club in Jefferson County and you're so poorly educated that you use such bad grammar, heaven help the poor Democrats. You don't even know what the current governor's name is! It's Beshear, not Breshar. Did you even graduate from high school?
If you think that any governor, whether Beshear or Fletcher or anyone else, would bother to get involved in your situation, you're even dumber than your bad grammar indicates.
Educated or not, the points this person makes are still valid. Those should still be respected. I feel shame for anyone associated with someone like you who is more concerned with criticizing another than you are helping someone who has valid concerns for an innocent child. I've had my college education. I don't think it's necessary to degrade others. It's sinful under God and even if you are not religious it's just plain wrong to be so hateful anyways!

That sounds about right. Isn't it insane? Instead of going after the criminals they make the innocent look like the bad guys!

Most people have no clue how CPS operates. Social workers do not go out looking for abuse and neglect..people call in reports and many laws and policies have changed over the years that require children to be seen in a certain time constraint....why? Because kids die. That's why.social workers aren't at desk all day...they are making pop up visits, talking to families and interviewing children...most removals are due to the fact that the child reports drug use, has physical evidence of abuse, or reports their parent getting their ass beat by the other...look at the child fatalities....the highest percent is murder by the mothers boyfriend...fact not fiction... Social workers try their best to prevent things from happening but ultimately they aren't the ones committing the abuse. Who is this idiot saying that workers get a bonus for removing kids? Social workers do not get any raises hardly let alone a bonus for removing kids...nothing..no bonus at Christmas or anything! Read the policies and asfa laws. The money received for children in foster care goes to take care of that child...not to the worker..idiots...I know there are shady workers that suck at their job but there are several that actually care about the kids and their parents...prescription drug use, meth, heroin..it's an epidemic in bullit county.....to those who really really got their kids removed for something blown out of proportion I'm sorry...because it does happen...but I can say most removals are much needed...and a judge still has to order the removal..

Please everyone it does not matter how well you speak or spell, love trumps all. The highly educated as well as the illiterate abuse children, as well as all political parties. Pray for our children, pray that someone will care enough to protect them! Look for ways to be involved in the CPS system, check out CASA, pray, vote, be involved in someway Think of what courage it takes on these children's part to even come forward, and God help them when they are overlooked and placed back into their nightmares.

I am a former CPS Investigator. I am a Defense Attorney, as I was before working for the state. Familes get destroyed by CPS. Some children do get help, no doubt about it. They are tortured in their own homes. But those are the cases that need to be investigated, not a child at a home by themselves who are responsible, or a child who has a bruise on their butt with no indication of how it got there. I will tell you about CPS, because I was one of them. Go to DefendThePeople.com

Cowards like "Conservative Repudlicker" are a dime a dozen and I wouldn't pay much attention to his/her/it's grammar correction or whatever the main thing is the welfare of kids.
The problem with this system is two fold first of all CPS is a pathetic piece of shit, they only want to push things through the system. There are some good case workers but not many. We even had one say that unless a mother is found in a gutter passed out with a needle in her arm and her kids are sitting there soiled in their diapers the courts are not going to take these kids out of the home and into a safe environment, and even then it's not a slam dunk.
Also to the point or non point of the coward "Conservative Republicker" who claims it/he/she hasn't had it/he's/her kids under scrutiny of CPS. Screwed up kids that are having kids come from every walk of life, so to put the blame on the grandparents is just a stupid and uninformed comment.
My wife and I have had to fight for two grandson's in Jefferson County court with two different judges. One who is great and take no BS from Mother's and Father's and one that would keep a child in the family regardless of what is happening. The guardian ad-lidem, who was appointed by the judge in the case made a cut and dry case as to why we should be involved with our grandson's life, also blasted the mother of our grandson and the other grandmother for lying in court through the Ad-Lidem investigation and finally turning to accusing me of abusing my Grandson to try and get us out of his life. The judge didn't buy this nor did CPS, the crimes against children unit of Jeff co. or the guardian ad-lidem. But what it did was cost me over 5000.00 to defend myself.
Well fast forward about 4 years, the mother of our grandson was court ordered to adhere to a "safety plan" which stipulated that she remain gainfully employed, that no one was to corporal punish the boy and to get him counseling. To date our grandson has lived in literally 20, that's right, 2o different places, the mother has not worked more than 8 months time in the almost 9 years of his life and he is acting out in school which led to him being evaluated by JCPS and others brought in.
NOBODY is addressing the issue that the problem is his pathetic mother that won't work, loves drugs and cannot even get him up, fed and dressed for the school bus that stops right in front of her mother's house where she lives. Consequently he has been held back a year in school and is in trouble of possibly failing again this year. All of this shit because a Family Court Judge couldn't do the right thing 5 years ago and take the child out of her care and either put him in our care or the other grandmother's care or split it between us.
It's amazing because the other judge (that we had to intervene with our daughter because she is just as bad as the son's girlfriend) took the child right out of her hands and gave us custody. So what's the deal in jefferson county family court, a GD roll of the dice as to what judge you get? So the kid's futures are a crap roll in family court? Additionally CPS followed up about 2 times with the safety plan and that was it. So this sloth just goes out and has another kid with another man and sponges off everyone, lost 3 section 8 housings just got another and has no job to pay for incidentals so she will lose it again and who pays for this? That's right an innocent child due to a pathetic inept useless and subjective Judge, a broken CPS and a school system that has no business being in the babysitting business. So you tell me what needs to be done. I am researching suing CPS in Federal court for their ineptness but no amount of judgement will help our grandson and he is on the precipice of losing all opportunity for a decent life and there isn't a thing we can do. I hope the Judge gets sick and dies for this, I would hope we can sue CPS for this and the mother just needs to die too. That's how bitter I am over this bullshit.

Republicunt you are a pathetic piece of shit that probably needs his/her/it's ass pounded in the ground. Your verbal vomit is pathetic and you don't have the guts and probably no resources either mentally or financially to raise anything but an eyebrow. How about just going away and taking your puny pathetic piece of shit coward ass out of here. Your location says your in Indiana, this is about the State of Kentucky, city of Louisville.

look jerk take your ad's somewhere else, how much do you pay someone to find family court threads and then post advertising on them? You GD lawyers are part of the problem a HUGE part of the problem. You don't need a lawyer in family court, go in on your own and if you think you cannot represent yourself in a civil manor or believe a judge is going to be impossible tell them ok, have it postponed and say sorry I didn't think I would need a lawyer in family court. DO NOT go in guns loaded and bank account drained, I can tell you from experience. What cost me almost 15K to do could have been hashed out with me representing myself. Don't make a fool mistake like I did. You don't need to consult pieces of shit like this advertisement on a discussion thread. The only thing better than a deceased lawyer is another one.

my husband was the one that wrote in about our grandchildren and the trouble we had with cps. a "gentleman" replied and made a very crude statement because my husband had put in the comment that he was a chairperson for a democratic club. I would like to respond to the gentlemen in this way. I do not think of my grandchildren as democrats or republicans. i simply think of them as my grandchildren and i want to protect them in any way i can. sir, if you are so narrow minded or shallow that you would honestly consider your children or grandchildren as democrats or republicans, i feel sorry for them. i have been a registered nurse for 34 years and 17 of those years i worked in different emergency department. i often wondered how the children kept falling through the cracks. unfortunately i found out the hard way. the worst part of the whole thing is the children are the ones that suffer. i think i'll just keep praying because that's the only thing that seems to do any good. And if the gentleman that refered to my husband's bad grammer and bad spelling reads this, i will say a prayer for you to sir.
I hear you Grandmother, what we need to do is somehow band together and pool our resources and become a force to be dealt with. We will need help from the media and from the public. There are thousands of kids being raised by GP's in Kentucky and the kids continue to cause drama. It's time for some old time justice and these far left liberal judges need to be bounced off their jobs. Next year many come up for re-election we need to have a list as to who needs to stay and who needs to go and get some exposure.

To quote from the news story:

Vanessa Shanks had her kids taken away and, when she fought back, her relatives had their children taken away. Then, after she won in court, her attorney's child was taken away.

Is that the way it still works? Or has anything been done about it?
