Arizona CPS isn't worth a red nickel. The state needs to start from scratch and find a better way. Our children and parents deserve a better CPS

how about CPS is not doing there job to the fullest extent everyone is on here complaining they are messing up. there are 2 beautiful lil boys that belong to my fiance and his ex wife and they are being abused by his ex wifes now ex husband and CPS has been involved 2 times. cases are involving the kids being slapped, punched, cussed at, seeing there mother being beat, the whole 9 yards and lets not forget there mother holding a knife to her throat in front of her children willing to kill herself. yes this is all documented in the cps reports and guess who still has the children??? thats right the mother... we have been at this for over 2 years... just a week ago once again his 5 year old son was thrown into a wall all we got was an extra day with them and had to return them to her today... so everyone can fully understand arizona sucks its a pro-female state... why is it that a mother can let this happen to her children and get away with it but a father is busting his ass to protect his boys and gets frowned upon and told that the boys need to be with there mother???

I am sorry that your brother was killed. I cannot believe the children were taken by this CPS of AZ. I wish the Senators and Representives would be brought in to make laws against the CPS of AZ. They are Robbers of Little Children from their families and those little children will never get over the trauma CPS has caused in their lives

CPS of Az sent our grandson to AZ and the judge in the juvenile court gave the father that had never been in his life 60 days to file for custody or it would go back to the child's Mother after a dependency case. He never got it done in time but his lawyer said if the Mother took back the custody which is hers at the time, the CPS would open another case agaisnt her in AZ just like that and take her child again. She chose to not exercise this law that if a temp. order is given and not fulfilled, it goes back to the original cusotody which the Mother had. Now the child is emotionally distraught and another judge just ordered the father will answer his phone which he refused to do sometimes so Mother can talk to her child once a day unrestricted. The CPS don't care about kids. This Mother has another little child and she sees that little child and CPS said they don't even care about that child. Can you see a double standard..One child taken and another not. What they going to try to get this Mother on now. It is insane what the CPS are allowed to do in AZ. It should be shut down. Children should stay in the home especially if they have never had any signs of being neglected or abused as was the case of this perfectly healthly little boy. It is tragic. CPS of Az are ruining children's lives by taking them from the Mothers and it should be stopped. We need CPS stopped.

So don't let ticked off grandparents or parents fool ya. I have seen them in action myself and it can be quite a show they put on for people that are watching. But when alone with the kids.. they pay attention to one child but not the other (unless they are forces). Some of these children that have had children, need parenting classes to help them. And if they would DO what they are suppose to DO to get their children back, then I would be for it 100%. But most of them have showen they have NO desire to take the initiative to do what needs to be done to get their children home. I wish all the parents that have children in CPS lots of luck in getting their parenting classes, any testing, finding a job, finding a place to live.. etc done that they need to do. I feel that a child does need to be with their parent as long as that parent shows they following the set guidelines (which are not unreasonable) to get their children back. Which by the way I have SEEN a parent do what ever it takes to get them back. And keep things up so they NEVER loose them again. How many of you on here can say that.
truely a good parent let someone call CPS on you and we'll see how fast your story changes. This has to be my daughter (Misty)that wrote this.she has no clue about CPS they are liers and heartless peoples that only care about money and power

All you have to do is look at your kid the wrong way and the full force of child protective services will come down on you like a sledge hammer.

It doesn't matter if it's true or not, you are "Guilty until proven innocent" when it comes to these guys.

I know way too many people who have had their run-ins with them and there is no mercy. If your kid is doing poorly in school, it's the fault of the parent. If the kid is mouthing off, it's the fault of the parent. If the kid farts, it's the fault of the parent.

It's our own fault, we have protected kids so much that they now know that no one can touch them or even look at them funny. Hence the lack of paying attention or demonstration of respect in the schools. Baggy pants, showing their asses, talking on cell phones, talking back to their elders, simple lack of discipline.

Put discipline back into the schools. Currently, a kids screws up and the parents are called or the kid is suspended. Punish them in school. To hell with child protective services. These idiots couldn't find their ass with both hands.

The catholic church will tell a young mother to adopt/foster care they push it very hard they are worse than a high pressure car salesman so they like what cps does by stealing children, walking all over the parents with the juvenile cheap court system that is ran by the foster parents, that say they are a potential permanent placement for taking the child. The parents and childs lives now have been altered, torn into shreads so severy by the system parents cannot work at daycares,or even a casa Volunteer due to being charged with abandondment,neglect or anything CPS can make up!. The foster/adopt parents end up sucking off the state for $1200.00 dollars per month,$1800.00 dollars if they can make it disabled. There is not a limit on how many foster children can be giving to one set of foster parents.

I'm not sure if it was in AZ or not but there is a terrible story of older parents with an adult daughter who is intellectually disabled. She had a test and was prescribed psych meds for the first time a few years ago. When she was having serious side effects from the drugs, the parents decided not to continue them so CPS took the daughter and now she is having all kind of emotional breakdowns and the parents who have taken care of her for 40 + years are not allowed to see her.

AZ & UT have a long history of aggressive CPS starting with the false accusations in th 70's of molestations which were later proved untrue. They even took kids from their homes, medicated them out of their minds with psych drugs and placed them in homosexual households when they ran out of regular ones.

On the surface, the kids are better behaved and more compliant because they are drugged. 1/3 of foster children in FL and TX are drugged with psych meds. 1/3 of FL prison inmates were previously in the FL foster care system.(In AZ there has been a 230% increase in prescription drug related DUI's in the past 10 years.) 1/3 of women 19 or older in the US is or has been drugged with antidpressants.

Michigan CPS:
Lorrie Thomas who allowed her adopted parapalegic daughter to starve to death over a period of years, even after numerous calls to CPS. Michigan CPS staff and directors were at the same period of time embezzling millions of dollars in money that was supposed to go for day care for children in CPS by creating a phony business and diverting the funds.

Arkansas DCSF:
Recently caught in a scam where they stole Christmas gifts intended for foster kids.

FL Foster care:
Implicated in the psych med suicide of 7 year old Gabriel Myers. No necessary paperwork found on the administration of antidepressants and antipsychotics given to the child who later hung himself.

TMAP:
Texas Medication Algorithm Project put into place but the state gov. and pharma companies to save the state money on mental health care and help pharma make money on psych med prescriptions. All people receiving state benefits are screened for mental illness. The clinicians manual (available online) shows a nine tier drug trial and error procedure. Counseling is mentioned once.

If they are trying to rid the world of unwanted children, they are doing a fabulous job!

If any posters here have kids still placed in foster care, I would get involved and take legal action to see that that are not medicated with psych meds. Contact the FL state review board on Foster care that met this past June, or Senator Gassley for help in directing you to the proper authorities in your state to investigate any drugging of your child.

WE SINCERELY NEED YOUR HELP. Please join us in the Nationwide Protest August 12th against the incompetent and corrupt racket of child protective services, family / juvenile courts, foster care, guardian-ad-litem programs, court evaluators and more.

The NATIONWIDE PROTEST is vital to the safety and future of our American families assuring that justice prevails and those working against justice- be held accountable. TRUE REFORMATION of incompetent and corrupt child protective services, family / juvenile courts, foster care, guardian-ad-litem programs, court evaluators (and more), will save children, keep loving families intact and stimulate an economy abused by tax dollar misappropriations.

Families are separated unnecessarily everyday by the abusive power of CPS while foster children are suffering and dying for greed of tax payer dollars. This problem will continue until We the People demand TRUE reformation. Georgia Senator Nancy Schaefer was about to blow the lid off this corruption before she was murdered. Your family is not immune to these manipulators capitalizing on families in crisis (rebellious teenagers, etc.) for fun and profit.

CPS Does not protect children... It is sickening how many children are subject to abuse, neglect and even killed at the hands of Child Protective Services. Number of Cases per 100,000 children in the US. These numbers come from The National Center on Child Abuse and Neglect in Washington (NCCAN). Recent numbers have increased significantly for CPS.

*Perpetrators of Maltreatment*

Physical Abuse: CPS 160 Parents 59
Sexual Abuse: CPS 112 Parents 13
Neglect: CPS 410 Parents 241
Medical Neglect: CPS 14 Parents 12
Fatalities: CPS 6.4 Parents 1.5

Imagine that, 6.4 children die at the hands of the very agencies that are supposed to protect them and only 1.5 at the hands of parents per 100,000 children. CPS perpetrates more abuse, neglect, and sexual abuse and kills more children then parents in the United States. CPS nationwide is GUILTY OF more human rights violations and CHILD CASUALTIES then the homes from which they were removed. THIS IS THE TRUTH! SEE THE PROOF!

Sorry for the double post above. The first didn't appear to take. It has also come to my attention that some of the links I previously posted were chopped off and would not work. Here they are complete with additional GUIDANCE TO THE TRUTH.

* Federally funded state Employees (aka; Foster caregivers) who should not have rights to our children, are granted rights over FIT biological parents and grandparents. Children are being adopted by employees of the state (foster care) INSTEAD of being cared for by their FIT loving biological family members (grandparents / uncles, aunts) WHLE THE TAXPAYER FOOTS THE BILL. The greed and abuse of CPS power exploits public apathy, misconception, judicial "secret courts" and "confidentiality laws" to perpetrate human rights violations on American families Nationwide.

OK I see everyone here with their complaints but has anyone done anything? Currently because of a case in OR I am researching both states and finding many similarities. CPS is needed because there are truly abused and neglected children. With the Save Haven program there are also many abandoned children. I am working on a project to help the children and honestly protect them. Anyone want to join me in advocating for these children?
In the case in Oregon we tried to get CPS to investigate and when we finally did they said they did not see anything when the doctors were saying neglect to the point of malnutrition, dehydration,emotional neglect for which the doctor referred the child due to failure to meet the developmental milestones,mom refused the intervention twice, physical abuse in that the childs hand had been burned all of this the child was subjected to when alone with her mother and the child was under two years old. Attorneys were hired for the child and they have done nothing except to agree to a plan where the mother has UNSUPERVISED time with the child being in her home overnight two days then the child goes back to grandma for two days. When the child returns from mom she has started having seizures and night terrors, constant yeast infections and refuses to be potty trained. The child acts as if she has not eaten for the two days and is withdrawn for the first day of her return. She has also developed behaviors that indicate she may be being molested at moms house. There has been a guardianship filed by the grandmother and she is waiting to hear from the judge. Everything has been documented by the doctor in the childs medical chart and the grandmother is looking for people to assist the child. The atorney is unaware of the guardianship filing and tells the grandmother that the child has to be subjected to more abuse in order to collect more evidence against the mother he also tells grandma to not discuss the case because in doing so she breaks confidentiality. The attorney has her follow orders that are not on file with the court and is waiting until her sons divorce is finalized to get her third party intervenor status granted by the court.

You know, Child Protective Services should just take all kids away from all parents, I'm sure that at one point or another, your behavior as a parent has been abusive even in a mild sense. I think these cocksuckershould take all the kids and take care of them and educate and support them forever. What a bunch of dicksuckingknuckleheads.
