Can someone please explain why the Australian Newspapers to not appear to print a balanced view of child protection? All they ever print is how hard done by the caseworkers are (even when they allow a child to be harmed), yet only print how bad parents are. In fact, even the worst parents do most of the caring for the children, and caseworkers do nothing practical for the children. All they ever do is paperwork. So long as they get their paperwork done everything appears OK.
Why are parents time pressures and needs not printed ever, to ensure proper community supports for parents, but the papers are fixated on staffing levels and the daily routines of handsomely paid social workers?
Here is the SMH complaining about staffing level on behalf of social workers : Click here And here they are again complaining about the daily routine... They claim to be really busy but appear to have enough time to lobby and talk to the newspapers ... Click here. What a joke.
A federal class action lawsuit filed out of Southern California states that the Riverside County Department of Public Social Services has kidnapped “thousands” of children without warrant or reason.
According to the suit, which makes mention of several social workers and investigators, Riverside’s operation “makes a habit” of kidnapping young children.
Speaking with the Courthouse News Service, the Plaintiffs’ attorney, Shawn McMillan, said that he “uncovered an alarming trend” when investigating similar cases in the area the year prior.
“County child welfare agencies regularly subvert the constitutional rights of parents and children by seizing children from their parents when there is no danger to the child, and in fact no need to seize the child at all,” McMillan told Courthouse News. “The class action is designed to address a procedural problem. They [Riverside County social workers] as a matter of course don’t get warrants before seizing kids.”
Abstract: This article reports on a study of Children's Court files relating to completed applications for variation of care orders (section 90 applications) in three specialised Children's Courts in New South Wales. All files that could be located for completed applications were reviewed and nonidentifying data was recorded. The study attempted to examine the type of applications, the characteristics of applicants and the outcomes of the applications. One hundred and seventeen applications were reviewed: almost half of these were made by the then Department of Community Services (DoCS), and about the same proportion of applications were made by parents. After the section 90 applications were determined there was an increase in care orders allocating parental responsibility to the Minister for Community Services with 73% of the children placed under the care of the minister to age 18.

For her PhD, Dr Wendy Foote (2006) researched into what happens when mothers report child sexual abuse to Family Courts. She found that normal maternal anxiety is pathologised and mothers, not fathers, are labelled as mentally ill. Ironically, mothers who are mentally ill do not automatically lose residence of their chidren outside the Family Court.
In only 6% of litigated cases, accused fathers were banned from spending time with their children. In 38% of these cases, the ban related to child abuse/family violence and only 2% of these fathers were labelled as mentally ill. The notion that mothers concoct allegations of child sexual abuse has persisted despite (a) Australian and International research showing that children`s evidence is reliable and (b) research conducted with the cooperation of the Australian Family Court showed that false allegations are rare and, when they occur, the mothers usually had good reason to suspect that their children were being abused or were at high risk.
Today it has become crystal clear how much influence the medical establishment has in Australia. The medical establishment showed it true reach into our society. Where are the rights of the parents gone in this country, when parents are not allowed to medically treat their child in a way they see fit. A way that involves a plant, which has proven all over the world to work with their child’s conditions.
These parents have seen the improvements their little boy went through after he started using medicinal marijuana. Anyone can see the improvements Chase has shown over the last 6 months. There is no denying.
There are no statistics that will ever help you understand what it feels like to be a child abused by the child protection system. No one really watches out for these children they are all lost within a world ruled by narcissist, pedophiles and do-gooders.
A child removed from a home of poverty [aka neglect], is thrown into a broken system where true abuse becomes a life they can not escape. Even when the child is allowed visits from parents and family who can witness the physical marks of abuse - it is still ignored by arrogant workers who believe the parents are incompetent and their reports are retaliation.
Court was AGAIN adjourned at Broadmeadow Children's Court in Newcastle. If you are able, please front up and stand in peaceful solidarity for this broken family who are crying out for their baby.
There has not been a single finding supporting FACS' ridiculous claims of malnourishment presented to the courts or Marc and Cini. In the 3 weeks since Chase vanished from his mothers sight without a trace, there has only been adjournment after adjournment.
Another whistleblower has been unlawfully sectioned under mental health legislation in Austria, by a single judge who has never met him, and WITHOUT A MEDICAL EXAMINATION.
This is an URGENT APPEAL for us all to unite at the Royal Courts of Justice in London, UK, on Wednesday 14 June, 2017 to show our support for a well-loved British man, military historian and author, Peter Hofschroer. Friends and supporters of the acclaimed author and historian and his mother, Barbara (aka Grandma B), are asked to attend his appeal against extradition to Austria.
Children's Charter of Rights for all Australian states / territories attached to this article. Family and Community Services NSW state : "The Charter of Rights outlines the general rights and responsibilities of every child and young person in out-of-home-care. The NSW Children and Young Persons (Care and Protection) Act 1998 requires that these rights are supported by carers and caseworkers." BUT you will notice that none of these charters explains exactly what kids can do when they're rights are being breached ...

Adoption is the ultimate for of child abuse. While adopters say the child was "Chosen", the child has no say in the matter. Is it any surprise then that the failure rate of adoption is as high as 1 in 4? Or that the suicide rate is very high? Or that there are probably millions of people around the world suffering from a "Primal Wound" and desperate to find out who they are?
Adoption is a selfish act, you take other peoples children to raise as your own on the basis that if they were left with their family, that they might have a bad outcome in life and the almost guarantee them bad outcomes? A judge once said; "Adoption is the breaking up of one family to create another". Children are not pets that can be moved from home to home. Biology means everything, babies start their relationship with their parents in the womb. These babies do not come from "orphanages", there are very few orphanages left in the world. The Adoption Industry is a legal child-trafficking operation, there is big money to be made.
In the next few years the Australian government is going to make taxpayers pay billions and billions of dollars for a scheme which they are promoting will help almost half a million australia's with disaiblities.
What they don't mention is that practically every non-government organisation currently looking after thousands of persons with disabilities, already receives billions of dollars per year to provide these services already. The problem is that they pocket the money instead, and keep people with disabilities chemically restrained and locked up in residential facilities, that are harder to exit than Long Bay Jail.
You will be told that this is to protect the persons in the facility, but it's not. It's for the facilities to protect thier pots of gold. Persons with disabilities in residential facilities are worth a very large amount of money, and nobody wants them to go home. With people with disabilities leaving residential care, as the NDIS statements are saying, very big businesses that house these people for profit will start losing a very big amount of money. Do you think they are going to let this happen?
Dossier indicates drive to increase adoptions is punitive for low-income families and alternatives exist
The research found a 65% rise in the number of children that are separated from their parents since 2001.
The push to increase adoption in England is punishing low-income women, who are increasingly losing their children due to poverty, according to research by Legal Action for Women.
A report to be presented at the House of Commons on Wednesday contains new research from the legal service and campaign group, which suggests the policy of increasing adoption has not reduced the number of children in care – as it was intended to – but has increased the number of those separated from their parents.
COURT CASE CLAIMS SOCIAL WORKERS HAVE IMMUNITY FROM PERJURY CHARGES IF THEY LIE TO REMOVE CHILDREN FROM THEIR HOMES [VIDEO]
A court case known as the “Right to Lie” case would establish whether social workers are legally immune from perjury charges if they lie to the courts in order to remove children from their families — and it is now one step away from the Supreme Court.
Case number 15-55563, also known as Hardwick v. Vreeken or the “Right to Lie” case, was heard in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in October. The case is an extension of a long-running court battle between a California woman and her two daughters against the child welfare system in Orange County, California.
The Australian Federal Police state that "Human trafficking is the physical movement of people across and within borders through deceptive means, force or coercion."
Australian child protection authorities do this, and they use the services of lawyers to ensure that this happens. Lawyers then have the protection of the state legal services commission, ie the NSW Office of Legal Services Commission - whereby they pretend that they are an oversight authority to ensure the professionalism of their lawyers.
