CPSAwful experience

I was a temp employee working as a security guard at the CPS building in Sacramento. One of my duties was to enforce the no parking area where I was stationed. A social worker parked there against the rules. She knew full well that she could not park there. She goes to whatever she had going with 'clients'.

She is meeting with clients and to do my job I had to tell her to move my car. She was dismayed, complained about how she had to see her clients and could not be interrupted but eventually went down and moved her car. The no parking rule was because it gave rise to a safety hazard. If that was the only place she could park she should be been more punctual so as to park in the regular parking lot. The social worker complained to her boss and my boss. I was fired. Apparently this social worker is so important that she can disregard the rules that apply to everyone.

I got ripped off because I lost two weeks of work because the general rules that apply to all don't apply to social workers. These highly paid self important people who can't keep kids alive.

    My sister started dating a man a couple yrs ago and after one year they got married...She was unaware of his past with the CPS or his mental unstability...After a while she realized there was something not right about this man and wanted to leave..(by this point she found out she was pregnant with his child) ...After we talked she decided to have him leave and she was going to move back up here so that i could help her with her 8yr old Kayla (from a prevous marriage) and the new baby that was on the way..After She told him to move out he went to the police station and made accusations against my niece..that she hung cats, drawned a dog...poked him with needles and hit him. CPS was notified and showed up at my sisters...she notified them that he was mentally unstable and she asked him to move out and that she was moving up north to be with her family. The caseworker said that was fine she could move up north just to let her know the address and phone number...I talked yo the case worker and gave her both my phone number and address and our dads...She was up her with me for 5mths and keep in contact with the new caseworker up here...the only thing he asked for was to have Kayla evaluated by a doctor..which my sister did right away...After 4 visits the doctor said that he didnt need to see her anymore...that was in september...At the end of December we had not heard from the CPS since septerber after doctor sister decided to return to Texas for the birth of her child so that the father could be present at the birth and then return to Indiana...Since my sister had a mth before baby was due when she returned to Texas and enrolled her 8yr old Kayla in school...On the first day of school CPS stole Kayla and is now trying to terminate my sisters rights on grounds that Kayla would be a danger to the baby. (the baby that is not even born yet!) I went down there and hired a lawyer for her and stayed for the first hearing...the judge did not want the eval from the Indiana doctor and ordered a new eval and my sister sister to have an eval also...After the first week in foster care my sister was able to talk to my niece on the phone...the foster care giver said she could talk to Kayla nightly...Kayla has not been eating, crys everyday for her mom and would not sleep...she is now starting to stutter when spoken to...The foster care giver got mad at my sister and said she could only talk to my niece twice a week because the foster care giver wanted Kayla to call her mom out of respect and Kayla didnt want to and found it confusing why she had to call this lady mom and not by her name and my sister tryed to speak to her about it. How could this be in the best interest of the child when it is causing her so much emotional damage? No one wants to go up against the CPS and even our lawyer just stood there and shoke, like a nervous wreck, and just keep repeating that she had the eval. done in Indiana...What can she do? Who can she contact? This is a loving child that was put in the system by lies and twisted truths...The caseworker even stated that she could take the unborn child when he was born if she wanted to...How can they have so much power that they can destroy families and threaten people with the loss of there children?

    Hello, my name is Khalilah McKenzie,
    I live in Buffalo NY and I am a good pro-active parent to my 2 high IQ's adhd children. CPS has taken them off of personal emotions and not professional facts, and they have no proof of what they are really holding my children for and yes I did cuss the lady out but she has no professional reason to keep my children. She went up to the school 2 days after our hard phone conversation and made up a lie on my two disable children. The allegations dad and I cannot plea guilty of because we did not do it. So is it right that they keep my children? I feel like I do not have any civil or even human rights but I pay taxes, in a homeowner, college graduated and everything else that middle class blacks have. I am not a horrific parent and either is dad. I have proof and a professional witness that spoken with the cps worker before she took my children. I have all documents and cps cards dates and everything else. Counseling and school records. This is not the first time this has happen. Caseworkers lost their jobs and my children returned home. I am doing everything these cps workers and judges are asking me to and my kids still be going to foster care. My kids have been taken away from me off personal emotions instead of professorial fact 3 times in the last 10 months. Buffalo NY is the most races segregated town I have ever seen in my life. Is it okay for a cps worker to lie and the system keeps your kids?
    I received a call from a CPS investigator on 6/6/12, she stated that the hot line call was not about my kids and me but we were mention in the report about my children father son. She also stated that she knew he did not stay with us and I did not have custody his mother took custody in 9/2010 from dad. so she wanted to come straight out to my house and mind you my kids was taken on a lie last year and the case was dismissed and my daughter was in the mental intuition for 6 weeks and she is 6years old. So ever since, they been home we have two in home therapist and wrap services and we was replacing the seed of doubt of being taken again with the circle of trust that we are stable. She didn’t want to hear that and she and I had a heated conversation and the next day all the information that I gave her like my teams numbers counseling information she spoke with everybody and they had GREAT things to say about my family growth and she felt like because my team was black they was lying so she went to the school on 6/7/2012 and interviewed my 2 disable mental health smart add scared kids and they told her the truth and then the next day 6/8/2012 she called me and told me that I had a hour to get to court and she was violating me on a court order because I wouldn't let her in and I got a cps call. She was out of control with my kid’s father when she called him on that Tuesday. She was saying they were going to call the state troops and they were standing at my door and I would not let them in.
    I was just like not right now come tomorrow when the therapist is here because I do not trust you people because of the lie that was told before and the case was dismissed. I would like if you come tomorrow...she was so hard on I was hiding something.
    So she did all of this on personal emotional and not professional facts...because I have people in my home 4 days out the 7 and we are in intensive counseling including dad and we was doing good with no red flags but anyway...we get to court and my judge and my lawyer was out of town and I was screwed and they came up with some lie that I have been whooping my son with a belt 5-6 times since he been home form foster care and that their dad whooped my daughter with a spartcurl until she peeped on herself because she brought home a 32 on her behave sheet...this was a dame lie okay the time frame that they are saying this we had the 2 in home Thespis in the home on the weekend and that is some sick mess okay. my kids didn't tell the cps worker this they cry every night why are they in Forster care and everywhere they go they tell everyone that their parents are good to them please let them go home...Yes I was wrong to cuss her out and I felt that she should have been calling dad and mom to the child that the call was about why rush out to my house and scare my kids and self. The cps hotline calls are allegation not facts...WERE are my rights at someone please help me understand...
