CPS: we are the GOOD guys

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I am getting so tired of people bashing CPS. Caseworkers work their butts off for hardly any pay to help protect the most vulnerable of children. We are required by law to look into all allegations that fit the criteria and yes sometimes we have to give a child back to a parent when they've only barely met the minimum necessary for reunification. We are not the BAD people. We are the GOOD people.

At CPS,  as soon as mothers sign up for free prenatal care. Who would have to rely on welfare payments from the government to care for the child. We decide, during the pregnancy. If we think the child, from birth is at risk of abuse or neglect. Because of anything we feel would hinder the womans ability to raise the child properly. 

There are different reasos, why women are at risk of neglecting or abusing a child/ren.  Some of these examples are. A mental illness, mental disability or physical disability, that would prevent a woman from providing or caring for a child, when they are without support.  

When we take children from those women who are at risk of neglecting or abusing a child/ren. Then we get paid for doing our duty as child protectors.

If the children are raised by a capable carer/s, who rely on little to no welfare benefits. Then the government saves money.

Compared, to the bigger loss of money the government, would have lost to less deserving, welfare recipients, incapable of proving a standard level of parenting.

And a lot of those decisions are completely arbitrary and without logic or consistency. I've seen many women who lost their babies on the grounds that they might possibly maybe at some future time present an issue to the child even though they have no history of child abuse of any kind. They're being punished for a crime they have not commited yet and may very well never commit, no different than if the police showed up on YOUR doorstep tomorrow and arrested and charged you with first degree murder you hadn't commited and may never commit but were going to be punished for it anyway. 

How about the mother who lost her baby for a couple weeks because she had a poppyseed bagel during labor? 

How about the parents who lost their baby because they wanted a second opinion on his open heart surgery?

How about this father who lost his son because he's vegan:



Parents are punished for being good parents.

How about this almost comically laughable one where CPS harasses a father because he took his daughter to McDonalds and because he had to google the medication she might be on because they won't tell him what it is? Oh, did I mention that it's hysterical that some fatass 400+ lb social worker is lecturing ANYONE on healthy eating? She clearly has had more than a few hundred Big Macs in her time.

You should really listen to former Senator Nancy Schaffer's comments on CPS. ;-) It's very enlightening.

Three children have been found with bruises across their bodies, prompting police to arrest their foster carer in NSW's Hunter region.

On January 10, police were told three children in FACS NSW foster care in the Lake Macquarie Area near Newcastle had a number of injuries.

The children, two boys aged six and seven and a five-year-old girl, had obvious bruising on various parts of their bodies, NSW police said in a statement on Monday.

Child Abuse Squad officers later arrested the children's 47-year-old foster carer.

According to police, officers also seized more than 20 grams of cannabis,

What a joke. ALL of the CPS workers I have ever dealt with would rather take kids away for minor "problems" that are not actually problems than take away the child that has been obviously abused by their parents.
