According to a February 27th 2014 report in The Boston Globe over 134 children under foster care are currently listed as missing in the state of Massachusetts. Todd Wallack of The Globe wrote that while this is a factual number DCF Director Olga Roche still testified before a House Committee that all the children under DCF care are alive and safe.
“Can you give me and the other 6 million people of the Commonwealth the assurance that you know that every single one of those 36,000 children in your care today are present, alive, and healthy?” asked state Representative David P. Linsky, chairman of the House Committee on Post Audit and Oversight. “Can you give me that assurance that there are no other Jeremiah Olivers out there today?”
“Yes,” Roche said firmly. Asked whether she was “100 percent confident,” Roche said yes again.
Conna Craig of the Hoover Institution’s Institute for Children appeared on I-Heart Radio in
January of 2014. She believes a lot of these missing children end up in the human trafficking industry.
The money that foster parents receive is called Title-A, or Title Allotment. Some states require that children remain under Title-A until 26 but most children end up getting kicked out of foster care at 18. Usually there is little support system for these (now) grown children. Conna Craig goes on to state that foster parents receive anywhere from $300-$600 per month. But once that spigot gets turned off at age 18 what incentive is there for the foster parents to hold onto the grown child?
This begs an obvious question. Between the money from the federal level, state level and the constant yearly rise in appropriations where does CPS get off complaining about a lack of funding to monitor children under their care? It is the same mindset as teacher's unions demanding more money while the school drop out rate continues to increase, school curriculum gets stupider, children attend rat infested schools while school superintendents drive luxury cars.
The system is only interested in the system, not what the system is supposed to advocate for.
Although Family Services have been around since the passage of the Social Security Act in 1935 the final nail in the coffin for family and parental rights didn't occur until the landmark 1993 legislation known as The Violence Against Women Act. Laudably, this act strengthens the laws against rape and targeted violence against women in general and has brought awareness of such violence and created advocacy groups, legal strategies and special courts to handle it.
Unfortunately no law stays within the realm of why it was created in the first place. Today the ability of women to declare their spouse dangerous or violent is foggy at best and highly non-specific at worst. A woman can accuse her spouse of anything and the family court system is designed to assist her in her pursuits. According to Father Against Divorce Discrimination over 65% of all 51A abuse reports are found to be false. Over 80% of all filed reports have the father as the defendant.
This has given CPS a whole new crop of children to harvest. Law enforcement is mandated to report to CPS all domestic violence reports no matter what the level, cause, regardless of the facts. Restraining orders are handed out like Halloween candy separating fathers from children. This creates a division in the family unit making it easier for CPS to brainwash the mother into compliance to their orders. Any attempt by the father to fight it is a useless endeavor.
Some interesting factoids to come out of the VAWA are worth a second look:
Between 1993 to 2010, the rate of intimate partner violence declined 67%;
More victims are reporting domestic and sexual violence to police, and reports
to police are resulting in more arrests.
Odd, how can that be? If domestic violence has been on a steady decline why are there more arrests? Wouldn't you see a decline in arrests?
All states have authorized warrantless arrests in misdemeanor domestic
violence cases where the responding officer determines that probable cause
All states provide for criminal sanctions for the violation of a civil
Police can arrest you based on here say and and/or an unsubstantiated claim of abuse and you can be imprisoned even if it is the accuser violating that order. There is also, what one website accurately calls "The Snitch Network"
" Other people can also report to the hotline: A nasty neighbor, an angry spouse making a false report to get an advantage in a divorce by using DCF to do her dirty work, an upset relative trying to get revenge, a jilted boyfriend, etc. The statute is set up so that anyone can play DCF for a chump. And, since there is no penalty for false reporting, and it is often more than willing to be used for that purpose........ If the emergency is slightly less pressing, the DCF can go to court first and present a secret affidavit to a Juvenile Court judge in a secret hearing, where the parents are not there to contest it. The judge will usually issue an order - called a "mittimus" - allowing custody to DCF and giving them authority to kidnap the child. If the court is closed on a night or weekend, or the emergency is actually horrific, they can just go in and take the kids without any delay, and come in the next date the court is open. (DCF Motto: We don't need no stinkin' warrant.) "
Stephan Baskerville, author of the book "Taken Into Custody" wrote in a recent magazine article entitled, "Married to the State";
"Children raised without intact families do not as readily absorb concepts such as family privacy, sacrificial love, parental authority, limited government, or civic virtue. For their rules and values come not from parents but from government officials, who have ultimate sovereignty over their lives: courts, lawyers, social workers, forensic therapists, public-school bureaucrats, and police. These are the figures they must obey rather than their parents. Thus children whose authority figures are government officials cannot distinguish the private from the public and come to see the public sphere as a realm not of civic duty and community leadership but of abstract ideology, government funding, professional employment, career advancement, and state power, in whose growth they acquire a vested interest."
In the city of Springfield Mass. over 70% of low income homes are fatherless. Between our warped sense of family values and a system that makes reporting effortless and consequence free the stage is set for CPS to wield power at will. If you add the fact that we are several generations removed since feminism and easy drive thru divorce made fatherlessness common place we now have children (who have known no father) having fatherless children all the time. We have long since proven the emotional and sociological ramifications of this type of culture mentality on children.
But this is exactly what was planned. Create more 'at risk' children from parents who themselves were once deemed 'at risk' children and you have a steady supply of fresh meat for the institutional meat grinder known as Child Protective Services..
