it amazes me how a system can be put in place to protect children and in the process the parent can be treated like a criminal even though there is stone proof that the department is breaking the law in there procedures and nothing is done about it by the legal system as parents you have no rights to your children.
i'm going threw the same thing in shelbyville indiana i even caught them on recorder breaking the law obama or mich needs to do something i'm tired of hearing "well i work for the state i can do what i want" or "who do you think they are going to believe me or you" it makes me sick were are our rights and freedom and when did they start getting the right to follow there own regulations instead of the states.

I am a concerned step mother. The bio mom is staying in a nasty motel with kids on weekends with her new boyfriend. They slept in same bed. They came home with no bath ect. And the oldest child is the one who showed us where she is staying. Is this a reasonable cause to report her? I am suspicious of drug use, she has just went off the deep end since this new relationship.
suspicion gets you nowhere only facts try to get the kids to say ya or ne then go from there

I think they should hang Viola Miller by her neck for treason against parents and children of the united states of america and violating the consitutional rights of americans children and parents and acts of abusing her power as a figure head and letting her own system abuse children and good parents and people in general kids have died in there custody and like my own kids have been abused and molested while in there custody and i have proof on paper of these acts yet this woman is allowed to continue working in the state.
Viola and many judges should face criminal charges as well as her and be put in prison for the rest of there life's or hang from a rope for the treason they have commited........
they should i think if you work for the state then they should have to follow the laws to with maybe higher consequences i was a child molested and raped in foster care in rushville indiana the DCS left me there and so did the cops we have one hell of a justice system dont we

O Lord,
In this time of need, strengthen me. You are my strength and my shield; You are my refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. I know, Father, that Your eyes go to and fro throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts long for You. The body grows weary, but my hope is in You to renew my strength.
I do not fear, for You are with me.
I am not dismayed or overwhelmed, for You are my God. I know You will strengthen me and help me; that You will uphold me with Your righteous hand. Even as the shadows of illness cover me, I feel the comfort of Your strength, Or Lord.
Amen.

O Lord, be gracious unto us; we have waited for thee; be thou their arm every morning our salvation also in the time of trouble.

they need to concentrate on real cases and stop intervening in every house that a parent is caught smoking dope. maybe help these people but don't take the kids out for years at a time, which is the way it ends up and which costs taxpayers enormous amounts of money. time and money could be spent on the cases where abuse is more severe.
on the other hand, i think that is the objective. there are so many private providers that make a little here and there on each one of their social services provided and most all are ultimately owned by a crony of the governor. so you get the picture.
WOW you are from Roane County and OUR DCS took kids out for pot smoking? They didn't do anything for 12 years of known sexual abuse...they honestly are worthless and I hope Jennifer Shaffer doesn't work there anymore...she is worthless!!!

My daughter now 22 has given my family major trouble since she was 13 years old. Reaching out for help i used DCS being told that was the only source well all that did was teach her how to work the system and make our family life very miserable. She has been very abusive to everyone in the family physically and emotionally and does not care who she hurts as long as she gets what she wants. She was pregnant before she aged out of state custody because she had more freedom in their custody than our home, then when my grandson came along she wanted back into the family. Even though when my mother was murdered she sent me a letter by her case worker that she hated my guts and wanted me to sign my rights away as her mother so she could live her life as she wanted. I have two children that was raised in the same home with the same values my other daughter is as different as day light and night from this one. However, when Kameron came along we aloud her back and tried to forget the past, but whenever we could not give her what she wanted or disagreed with the way she was treating the baby she would go off on us again. Now she lives with a police officer that she claims has a problem with color, my grandson is biracial, i have practically raised him the past 4 and half years now because of some pretty bad bruises on him that i questioned, she wont allow me to see him. He told me that the boyfreind was spanking him with a paddle come to find out it is a paddle like you see in schools. This child is only 4 years old. DCS was called in and according to my daughter the worker told them that it was going to be an open and shut case but they had to make a visit because 2 reports were made. DCS never contacted me, but supposedly told my daughter there was nothing wrong with paddling him as long as there was no marks left. Some case worker huh!!! I dont have alot of faith in dcs anyway, but what do you do? Plus my grandson has not been aloud to see his father in over a year because of the boyfriend not approving of blacks, he is having to go to court, but they dont have a problem spending the child support he pays every week.
I would like to hear an update about your grandson now...I see this is from 2009...

Do any of you have any idea how bad child porn is in Nashville? I made reports of this being done to 2 of my young relatives after they disclosed this to me in vivid details. We had already suspected something suspicious was going on with the kids because of their prior behaviors. I reported it to the police, CPS, Ms. Miller and the governer's office, etc. A child psychologist was also involved in this, and knew something had happened to the kids. She urged CPS to take action. They didn't. NOTHING WAS EVER DONE TO HELP THE KIDS. They are still with their mom, who incidentally already worked in the porn industry herself. Mom has since pulled them out of school and they are isolated from anyone positive that could help them. I'm looking for a civil rights attorney or a child advocacy group interested in this case. There are some very disturbing things going on in Nashville, and the government is looking the other way...
Oh in case you didn't know this state supports sexual misconduct...DCS won't do anything in TN except if your innocent

Great News! On Nov 8th a $10,000,000 Federal Law suit was filed against Anderson County DCS. It Names Pam Becker Julie Rotella and many others. I promise you this is just the first of several and a possible class action status. Daniel Forrester is a good attorney and does fight DCS. Also attorney Lanis Karnes is all over anderson county DCS. Check it out for yourself just google (Pethtel et al V. State of Tennessee Department of Children's services.)Anyone with problems in Anderson County with DCS should contact these attorneys. Just google the name and you can find them. I also meet with the new Gov. last night I am sure things are about to change. Please let you voice be heard call you Senator and Rep. call these attorneys. Let them fight DCS. Good luck and don't give up on our children.

DCS Appear to be the Terrorist of the world, cause they cause war wherever they go, They are the one's that should rethink how they do things, realize that this world is not theirs, but those who make it better for everyone, not making the rest of us look down at those who actually do evil and let go free, while the one's who cry,sweat and bleed providing for the future of our children' Okay so we aren't perfect but that's how you learn by making mistakes, they need to check the facts before hurting those who actually try rather then those who don't give a damn. What the ?!?! people!... Wake up DCS, YOUR THE REASON FOR SUICIDES NOW, TAKING KIDS FROM THOSE WHO CARE THE WHOLE WORLD FOR THEIR OWN! ;( ME INCLUDED. I Say if they can go through the bull you put them through, and follow your damn commands then shouldn't that be enough to show you; we want our kids back?!!.... You IDIOTS!!!!!!!!!! You are the reason most people have it hardest, because Kids can't have a substitute love for their parent's you pry their cold fingers from, you sorry son's of bitches.... You wanna talk about abuse, you are abusing them the most by taking them from loving homes, and placing them with the worst, you know our ex's are called that for a reason, the one's who abandoned the children in the first place, put the place of blame on those people not the one who impacted the child the most; gave them a hope for a future, don't take away that. I hope someone can agree with me, I miss my own daughter she is 5 years old and she cries every time I talk to her on the phone and I know what kind of man she is living with when I was with him and she is hurting most right now, how is that the best interest????? WAKE UP!!! Oh God please WAKE UP!!! Before these kids who aren't allowed to be spanked as young's, become the future criminals of theft,murder,rape,and worse, due to your actions, of putting allegations where you can just get a stinking fat paycheck, For Shame For Shame, The Demons are trying to win.... Brother against brother, for the root of all evil.... Pathetic... Sad... Disgusting.. and over all Lost... Souls...

Bradley county dcs took my kids into 48 hr protection after I complied with everything they said for me to do. I passed my drug test everything and anything I could do to please them I did. My childs dog got injured and they made me remove him from the house he died. Right after I gave the dog away dcs was at my house they griped about stupid stuff. Its my house if I let my kids write on the walls oh well they are ugly anyways. And I'm severely mad. I have done everything they told me and they never did one thing they told me they'd do for me. They were supposed to help me. Because they had no case against me they invented bs reasons.
