"Further complicating the child’s access to safety was the withholding of evidence by Child Welfare Services (CWS) and OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE by the soon to be former Chief of Police Jim Mulhull in Atascadero, California"
"The evidence withheld from Court Record by C.P.S. included my ex-husbands past abuse, restraining order, contempt of court, kidnapping, substance abuse, Recent child custody orders. My daughter statements and repeated requests to go home were ignored by CPS and the court. Her letters and MySpace page showing a CPS REFORM VIDEO with a picture of NOOSE and an EMPTY GAS CAN. The words I LOVE MY MOTHER, THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME, I WANT TO GO HOME, on and on. All were ignored. Her text messages were placed on this blog but CPS claimed they could not read them. Videos were placed on YouTube but CPS flagged them so they were taken down"
Not only was Kathleen fighting to protect her daughter from CPS but she was dealing with police corruption by the soon to beformer Police Chief who authorized illegal house raids and had officers monitoring Kathleen's home. The Police arrested Kathleen on a FALSE DUI charge to stop her from speaking out at a Rally in Washington DC. She was asked if she was going to attend just the day before. The Police Chief did not like the idea that Kathleen was making legislative proposals to stop the corruption and they knew she was investigating the NON PROFIT ACCOUNTS assocuated with Child Welfare. Turns out the Police Department have a new children's non profit and they are paid each time they remove a child. This explains why the officer went outside with the Social worker....so they could cook up false charges and give me a high bail. Kathleen persisted in calling CPS and the police to help her daughter but was warned of the consequences of making any further reports. She was not allowed to get her daughter who was being mentally abused, nor was she allowed to take her to a therapist of her choosing, but to one chosen by C.P.S."
"Week after week, the Juvenile Court, C.P.S, and the Atascadero Police prevented her from protecting her own daughter. Instead, her daughter was forced to have her 16 1/2 year old be dragged from foster care to foster care and into the hands of the suspected abusers."
"Slowly but surely, Jennifer was forced into silence. The distress over her daughter’s suffering became so traumatizing that Kathleen was unable to perform her job or operate her business. Kathleen had previously had perviously been a thriving entrepreneur. However, in order to pay the attorney fees, and fight for her daughter she became forced to sell her real estate property in a distressed market, and lost the family home. She had no one to help her. The distress and desperate attempts to get her daughter back caused her health to fail"
"Kathleen contacted several child advocacy groups, government agencies, and private non- profits that were unable and/or unwilling to help protect Jennifer, and the prosecutor refused to investigate why CPS kidnapped Jennifer, They would not help her even after she went to their office to ask for help. Kathleen contacted City Manager Wade McKinney but he ignored her calls. So did the school, CASA, and other children advocates"
Another foster kid. I saw a foster mother do this to her daughter once. These children were totally normal but the foster mother was abusive towards them. She picked on the oldest child the worst. She would hit her over the head and lock her in her room. I even saw her curl up in a fetal postition. She blamed it on the real mother and claimed she was a child with "alcohol fetal syndrome" even though there were no signs of this condition. She had this child since she was an infant and explained that she had mental problems because the parents had sex in the same room when she was a few months old. B-A-L-O-N-E-Y!!
This lady kept placing this normal child in mental institutions and threatened to give her back to the State of California if they didn't give her more money. Even the husband said she was out of control. Then they adopted more children..... I wonder what ever happened to that little girl and the other kids... I called CPS but of course they didn't do anything. She vindictive towards me for calling them and got back at me by making false reports. She stalked me. She sat out in front of my house every day and night video taping me. She was so vindictive that she tried to run over my daughter with her car and another time she tried to scare me with her car as I was near a cliff. She even stalked me after I moved away. She tracked down my ex-husband who lived in another state and helped him use CPS to take my daughter Jenny. He moved onto my property without telling me he had spoken to her before moving into one of my houses. They had meetings and she was advising him on what to do. One was to go work for the school. So he did. Now he has Jenny. How's that for justice?
I am posting these videos so people can see the truth. Some are foster kids. I know what I saw and what they did to my daughter. Jenny told me from the first meeting with the therapist she was saying negative things about me and trying to convince her I was a bad mom. She told me "I don't think the things she's saying are true Mom. She's trying to put negative thoughts in my head". I agreed to switch therapists. The social worker didn't like this and insisted Jenny see that therapist. When I told her I made an appointment with another therapist she took my daughter. Jenny told me She dreaded fridays. They made her disturbed and suicidal. She would sit and color like a 5 year old and stare. I saw my daughter being traumatized each week and I witnessed the Director and others being sadistic.
*contact me for copy of this hearing)
Dear school officials,
I have called many numbers since my daughter was illegally kidnapped over one year ago by Child Protection Services. Not one person in San Luis Obispo helped my daughter or even listened to either of us. I was slandered with lies by this agency who used the Atascadero police to harass me. There was no child abuse or neglect yet the school allowed CPS to take my daughter from school without a warrant as required by law. There is no criminal conviction against me, nor was I given due process before custody was transferred to the Father earlier this week, I have never been able to present my evidence due to the extreme corruption that exists and due to the "secret courts" of San Luis Obispo.
I can't begin to explain what it feels like to see a child protection agency hurt my daughter and so many children. As a former foster parent I am literally appalled and anyone who was part of this maliciousness should be ashamed. If I hadn't seen this corruption with my own eyes I would never have believed it. I have documented all of the events so that my daughter can sue once she turns 18. She will turn 18 in 8 months and there is no statue of limitations. If she decides to take action I will be 100% behind her because of how this deleterious act was carried out.
Although CPS falsely accused me of "not protecting" my daughter this is not true. Jenny was in school at the time she cut herself and it was me who called the therapist. This cut was done while she was in math class and witnesses saw this event. It was self inflicted and no one at school seemed to think it was "child abuse" for the false mandated report was made a week later, after I contacted the therapist when I noticed a scab on her arm. My daughter was NOT in any imminent danger for she wasn't even home. Certainly there are plenty of mandated reporters at school so if there were a concern an investigation would have taken place before my ex-husbands emails.
Social Worker Amy Sensenbach kidnapped Jenny from school based upon false allegations which were made up by my ever spiteful ex-husband and his parents. There is a long history of hostility between us due to his actions during our last custody battle when he was in contempt of court for not returning our daughter. He alienated her from me and it took therapy to help Jennifer through those events. Shawn had lost two prior custody cases so he used CPS. The Judge's final determination was based on numerous reasons and there were home visits and Guardian Ad Litems, yet none of this was ever considered,
Amy Sensenbach went on "witch hunts" against me and was assisting my ex-husband who lived 3,000 miles away; communicating with him through emails BEFORE Jennifer was taken from school. The school allowed this Social Worker to remove Jenny without any proof of abuse or neglect. There was NO investigation and there was NO imminent danger. There was NO visit to my home before the removal and there was NO warrant. This is is illegal.
My daughter was kidnapped.
The school participated in this evil act by allowing this unlawful removal. They knew my daughter was a happy, popular teenager and certainly they knew she was not abused. I have have met with Ms. Rogers a few times and have attended school events. I have made contact whenever I had any concerns and I never had any problems with the school prior to my daughter's removal.
Jenny was taken without a mandated report and was placed into foster care illegally. She was not allowed to call me and her cell phone was taken away. She was a prisoner. Jenny and I tried to keep in touch with one another using 2 cell phones the school took it away and gave it to the social worker who gave it to the police. I had gone to the school and requested my phone but they refused to give it to me.
I asked the school for help but I was treated poorly. I requested that Jenny meet the child advocate who works at Atascadero High school but she refused. I contacted CASA but they claimed they had a wait list and they never even met my daughter. I called the school Superintendent, the Board of Supervisors, and many others but no one would listen. My daughter begged many people to help her go home. All of her requests were ignored. She asked the Director of CPS, the school principal, school counselor, her attorney, social workers, foster mother, police, chaperone's, probation officer, and many others for help. She ran away but was hunted down like prey and dragged back into foster care. She tried to get emancipated but this too was denied. She was forced into "therapy" every time she wanted to go home.
Her attorney said to me “your daughter is hard nut to crack"
Social worker Amy Sensenbach not only takes children from school but she also writes the reports for the court and goes into Judges chambers during the hearings. My daughter tells me she wanted to take her home. This is on tape. So is the text message my daughter sent me telling me social worker Louise Tobin was in her bedroom at 11:30 at night. WHY? Of course I became alarmed, especially after witnessing sadistic behavior from workers at CPS.
Jenny was traumatizing for 6 months and was alienated from me for no reason. She was shuttled into 5-6 foster homes where she became very unstable. Social workers, therapists and others worked on her head continually. They bribed, threatened, and coerced my daughter. When Jenny told them wanted to go home they placed her in high security foster care where she was forced to have chaperone's with her at all times to make sure she didn't run home. She couldn't even go to the bathroom alone. She told me she scared. She became so depressed that she turned to drugs. She learned how to smash up pills and snort them from her foster sister who got them from Jenny's foster mother. I worried about my daughter constantly. She was sneaking out at night to call me and and was started ditching school. She tried so hard to stay in contact but everyone made this near impossible. For mother's day she snuck out to see me but we were surrounded by the police. She told them to take her to Juvenile hall if they wouldn't let her go home. Part of this tape can be seen on You Tube. CPS officials took down other videos on You Tube not because there was any violation of terms, but because they didn't want people to know that my daughter wasn't abused.
CPS ABUSED MY DAUGHTER
They were sadistic, they lied, they fabricated reports, they committed perjury, and many people worked in collusion with one another to carry out this organized crime. When Jenny started becoming emotionally distraught and began cutting on herself she was sent out of state in the middle of the night. After she arrived the phone was disconnected. . Jenny did manage to contact a children's advocate who was able to get her statement on tape before her cell phone was taken away. While on an unscheduled “visitation” social worker Louise Tobin worked on transferring custody to the father. After a month when Jenny was to be returned Louise flew to Iowa to make arrangements to keep Jenny there. Jenny was forced to work at a daycare center so federal funds could be obtained. She was kept there so she would miss her own court dates. Jenny had met with the judge before going to Iowa. She begged him to let her go home. This was heard in Judges chambers so CPS made sure Jenny couldn't testify until they sent her to more “therapy” and turned her against me.
Jenny was not allowed to testify for most of her hearings. Her rights were continually violated. When I subpoenaed my daughter CPS would not present her in Court. Jenny was supposed to have a telephone testimony but this too was blocked. Jenny and her friends send me text messages but none of this evidence was allowed. Jenny put up a CPS reform video on her my space website the day before the hearing but this was ignored.
Everyone affiliated with CPS or who were Federally Funded ignored my calls Social workers changed their phone numbers frequently or were always on vacation. They purposely avoided my calls so that I would leave messages. I didn't mind because all this did was document the events of what a parent has to go through when CPS is unethical. Social workers violated HIIPA Laws contracted workers were paid to make false reports. They lied in Court and committed perjury. They also ruined my medical file.
Now our home is in foreclosure and we will lose everything we have.
What did we ever do to anyone to deserve to such evil?

Civil Codes 1569(1)(2)(3), 1570(1)(3), 1571, 1572(1)(3)(4)
DISCUSSION ON CPS PRACTICES - NOTES FOR LAWSUIT
The report CPS generated on January 22, 2008 which states Jenny should stay with her Mother and reunification is set for July 28th. Yet 3 days later, on January 25, 2008 she took Jenny from school. This occurred 43 days after the first removal. Amy listed fraudulent reasons for this second removal. She had not performed any investigations and her claims were based on “here-say”, which is unlawful.
1)No “protective custody warrant” was issued before removal as required by law. There was no “Imminent Danger of serious bodily injury” for minor was in school at the time. WIC 300(a)
2)The message received on my voice mail from the assistant principal, Ms. Donahue at Atascadero High school states Jenny was in school all day on January 25th. They state they had no prior knowledge of a removal by any social worker. Jenny didn’t come home from school that day. Was my daughter “Kidjacked”?
Section 300a of the Welfare and Institutions code states:
Any child who comes within any of the following descriptions is within the jurisdiction of the juvenile court which may adjudge that person to be a dependent child of the court:
(a) The child has suffered, or there is a substantial risk that the child will suffer, serious physical harm inflicted not accidentally upon the child by the child's parent or guardian. For the purposes of this Subdivision, a court may find there is a substantial risk of serious future injury based on the manner in which a less serious injury was inflicted, a history of repeated inflictions of injuries on the child or the child's siblings, or a combination of these and other actions by the parent or guardian which indicate the child is at risk of serious physical harm.
WIC 361(c) BURDEN OF PROOF
(c) A dependent child may not be taken from the physical custody of his or her parents or guardian or guardians with whom the child resides at the time the petition was initiated, unless the juvenile court finds clear and convincing evidence of any of the following circumstances listed in paragraphs (1) to (5), inclusive, and, in an Indian child custody proceeding, paragraph (6):
(1) There is or would be a substantial danger to the physical health, safety, protection, or physical or emotional well-being of the minor if the minor were returned home, and there are no reasonable means by which the minor’s physical health can be protected without removing the minor from the minor’s parent’s or guardian’s physical custody. The fact that a minor has been adjudicated a dependent child of the court pursuant to subdivision (e) of Section 300 shall constitute prima facie evidence that the minor cannot be safely left in the physical custody of the parent or guardian with whom the minor resided at the time of injury. The court shall consider, as a reasonable means to protect the minor, the option of removing an offending parent or guardian from the home. The court shall also consider, as a reasonable means to protect the minor, allowing a nonoffending parent or guardian to retain physical custody as long as that parent or guardian presents a plan acceptable to the court demonstrating that he or she will be able to protect the child from future harm.
(3) The minor is suffering severe emotional damage, as indicated by extreme anxiety, depression, withdrawal, or untoward aggressive behavior toward himself or herself or others, and there are no reasonable means by which the minor’s emotional health may be protected without removing the minor from the physical custody of his or her parent or guardian.
(4) The minor or a sibling of the minor has been sexually abused, or is deemed to be at substantial risk of being sexually abused, by a parent, guardian, or member of his or her household, or other person known to his or her parent, and there are no reasonable means by which the minor can be protected from further sexual abuse or a substantial risk of sexual abuse without removing the minor from his or her parent or guardian, or the minor does not wish to return to his or her parent or guardian.
(5) The minor has been left without any provision for his or her support, or a parent who has been incarcerated or institutionalized cannot arrange for the care of the minor, or a relative or other adult custodian with whom the child has been left by the parent is unwilling or unable to provide care or support for the child and the whereabouts of the parent is unknown and reasonable efforts to locate him or her have been unsuccessful.
Section 361(D) of the Welfare and Institutions code states
(d) The court shall make a determination as to whether reasonable efforts were made to prevent or to eliminate the need for removal of the minor from his or her home or, if the minor is removed for one of the reasons stated in paragraph (5) of subdivision (c), whether it was reasonable under the circumstances not to make any of those efforts, or, in the case of an Indian child custody proceeding, whether active efforts as required in Section 361.7 were made and that these efforts have proved unsuccessful. The court shall state the facts on which the decision to remove the minor is based.
1)Amy removed Jenny even though we complied with the “case plan”. We both completed the mental evaluation; I went to Drug and Alcohol for assessment and both obtained counseling.
ALIENATING MINOR WITHOUT JUST CAUSE
Section 362.1(1)(A) States:
Subject to subparagraph (B), for visitation between the parent or guardian and the child. Visitation shall be as frequent as possible, consistent with the well being of the child.
Subparagraph (B) basically states the child will be safe and consistent with 3030 of the family code
My daughter has been continually alienated from me from the start. The return date kept being extended while she was shuttled around into 5-6 foster homes. There was never any reunification attempts. They planned on transferring custody from the start based on FALSE charges. Again, tests proved the allegations were FALSE, yet CPS failed to return my daughter.
Section 300b of the Welfare and Institutions code states:
“…the court shall give deference to the parent’s or guardian’s medical treatment, non treatment, or spiritual treatment…and shall not assume jurisdiction unless necessary to protect the child” - I was sick with Anemia when they took my daughter yet they refused to allow me to seek medical treatment before making court dates and giving me a "case plan" to follow which was impossible to follow. *Medical tests prove this fact. This is probably why my house was broken into - to remove the proof.
CAL GOV GODE 821.21 SECTIONS 2 & 3
820.21. (a) Notwithstanding any other provision of the law, the civil immunity of juvenile court social workers, child protection workers, and other public employees authorized to initiate or conduct investigations or proceedings pursuant to Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 200) of Part 1 of Division 2 of the Welfare and Institutions Code shall not extend to any of the following, if committed with malice:
(2) Fabrication of evidence.
(3) Failure to disclose known exculpatory evidence.
(4) Obtaining testimony by duress, as defined in Section 1569 of
The Civil Code, fraud, as defined in either Section 1572 or Section
1573 of the Civil Code, or undue influence, as defined in Section
1575 of the Civil Code.
(b) As used in this section, "malice" means conduct that is
Intended by the person described in subdivision (a) to cause injury
To the plaintiff or despicable conduct that is carried on by the
Person described in subdivision (a) with a willful and conscious
Disregard of the rights or safety of others.
Amy Sensenbach originally took Jenny on 12/9/07 over the door incident. She returned her on 12/14/07. She took Jenny again from school 43 days later without good cause. She did not have a “protective custody warrant and no other incidences occurred. She removed minor solely on “hearsay and then went on a Witch hunt” against the mother to justify the removal. She omitted facts and misled the Court. She failed to disclose exculpatory evidence and the removal was not done properly.
TITLE 42, USC SECT 1983, 14141,
Sec. 1983. - Civil action for deprivation of rights
Every person who, under color of any statute, ordinance, regulation, custom, or usage, of any State or Territory or the District of Columbia, subjects, or causes to be subjected, any citizen of the United States or other person within the jurisdiction thereof to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured by the Constitution and laws, shall be liable to the party injured in an action at law, suit in equity, or other proper proceeding for redress, except that in any action brought against a judicial officer for an act or omission taken in such officer's judicial capacity, injunctive relief shall not be granted unless a declaratory decree was violated or declaratory relief was unavailable.

The appeals stated I did not get DUE PROCESS. Judge Garrett who heard the appeal ignored this and gave custody to the father. This case was flawed from the very beginning. CPS ignored this fact. They also ignored my daughters pleas to go home. All they wanted was the MONEY
LETS REFORM CPS AND STOP THE CORRUPTION
I wonder how much money they made off Jenny

Saturday, January 24, 2009
Part of the reason our medical expenses in America are twice as high as other countries is due to Psychiatric and Medicaid fraud. Many of the profiteers work together in this criminal enterprise. This is causing a strain on our economy. The Doctors are over-medicating children and are receiving kickbacks from the pharmacutical companies who in turn make large Political campaign contributions. Our Government won't help innocent parents because of this reason and some are even involved with "children" charities.
Doctors and therapists are writing slanderous reports about parents and are double billing. Guardian Ad Litems are not representing the best interest of the child because they are guaranteed a paycheck. Adoption agencies are making money and many Judges sit at the Head of Adoption agencies. Some of these Judges have other conflicts of interests for some are associated with Mental Health.
If you find that your Judge isn't being fair then they are probably profitting off your child.
REPORT THEM HERE:
It seems that many people are profitting from the Largest KID-JACKING scandal in Americal History. These US HUMAN TRAFFICKERS need to be brought to justice!
CHILD "PROTECTION" SERVICES and their co-conspirers need to be investigated and full AUDITS need to be performed. It's time for people to get involved to stop this CORRUPTION.
Did you know that CPS brings in more than 20 TRILLION DOLLARS per year? We could actually cure our recession problems if we abolished CPS.
Your suggestions are welcome.

NOTICE: IF YOU WORK FOR CPS OR ARE ONE OF THEIR CO-CONSPITERS YOUR IP ADDRESS WILL BE TRACED SO DON'T BOTHER LEAVING SLANDEROUS REMARKS. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE
What are you trying to pull now Collins? You yelled at my daughter telling her I had a DUI years ago and you now you seem intent on getting me falsely convicted so you can keep my daughter in the system. You even had your social workers slander me and my daughter's cell phone was taken to the Police station so you could use the Police to harass me and spread the slanderous lies you told them.
You really are a tyrant. Hope your proud of your kid jacking empire. Have you ever thought about what you are doing to all of these children?

Everything you have said is a complete and total fabrication, based on your
own imagination and the nonsense that you probably are picking up from
websites established by child abusers, the pro-spanking lobby,
anti-governmental zealots and the lunatic fringe.
I have never said that I was "friends" with judges. You asked if I knew
them, and I indicated that I know most of them, but only in a passing
We do not receive any personal monetary reward for taking children into our
custody. The IV-E funds about which you rave must be matched by County
dollars at 60% of the non-Federal share. These funds pay only for the cost
of care. It is expensive--very expensive--for us to keep children in
out-of-home care. This is why we do far less of it than most of our peers
in other counties. And, when we do have to remove children, we place them
with relatives more than any other county in California.
There are no "Adoption Saturdays."
I have had zero involvement in your criminal case.
To the extent that you continue accusing any member of the Department of
Social Services of violating any laws--knowing as I do that you do not have
any evidence of such violations, as none have occurred--I will seek redress
against you for your libel.
You refuse to seek competent legal counsel. You lie about your criminal
history. You refuse to do the one simple thing that would have resulted in
reunification: Your refusal to seek counseling, based apparently on your
paranoid delusions about our influence upon therapists--is in itself
evidence of your troubled mental state..
When the ultimate reckoning occurs, you will have to face the facts of your
own complete and utter abandonment of your daughter. And all the websites
you create, videos you post, congressmen you visit and letters you write
will never compensate for your denial of the simple request made of you by
Jennifer: "Mom, just get the counseling."
Re: Contact Us (response #1153)
I don't know what kind of sick "game" you think you are playing, but I
assure you will regret kidnapping my only child. I am quite resourceful
and I have no problem exposing this corruption. You have abused your
position as a Director of the San Luis Obispo CPS.
You think your slick by having your social worker Amy Sensenbach kidnap my
daughter from school for no reason. Then you ship her out of state in
the middle of the night so she can't contact me. When she arrives the phone
is disconnected and she is stripped of her cell phone and is unable to
leave the house. Don't worry Jenny was still able to get in touch with
child advocates when no one was watching. She stays up late to record the
events and these recorded statements will be given to the proper
authorities who will be investigating you.
My daughter tells how sadistic you are . She goes into great detail about
the abduction. Her story is quite compelling. Her statements will be
heard by many. Everything is documented, including your own statements of
how you don't care about the law and how you are "friends" with the
judges. We have detailed information on everyone involved, including the
non-profit organizations you are affiliated with, the income you are
embezzling from stealing children.
You are in collision with Attorney's, therapists, doctors, judges, CASA and
others. You influence criminal court cases and have the District Attorney
unfairly prosecute parents so you can keep children in the system. You
give parents and children "mental conditions" when you cannot find abuse or
neglect. You violate HIIPA laws and allow your workers to fabricate
documents and fax information to doctors, violating HIIPA laws and
ruining medical files. You violate State and Federal laws, WIC laws and
many others. Your agency is unethical and you use deceitful practices to
obtain children. You don't care about the families you destroy and how
you damage normal healthy children. You are corrupt.
Now you are now attempting to overturn two previous court orders in which I
was awarded physical custody by fabricating lies for the court and omitting
facts. You are using these false statements to keep my child "hostage".
Your agency had never even been to my house or investigated before
stealing my child. Now it appears that your social worker, Louise Tobin is
filing a 388 petition to give custody to the father. You are doing this to
obtain Title IV E funding. You are fraudulently obtaining these funds for
there never was any child abuse or neglect. you are simply taking advantage
of my ex-husbands hostility. You are aware that the father is using your
agency to get out of paying child support and are allowing him to use your
agency to finance his "custody battle". You are are improperly using
Federal funds for personal gain. You are aware that my daughter has been
drinking alcohol and doing drugs while in Iowa, yet you have allowed her to
remain in a hostile situation against her will.
We have information about your agency; the social workers and how they
coerced my daughter, the bribes, the chaperone's, etc. My daughter
reveals everything, including her meeting with the Judge. I know all
about the "adoption Saturdays" in which attorney's and Judges celebrate
kidnapping kids and how you purposely give the parents false mental
conditions so you can steal children. I have no intention of paying for
foster care, false doctor visits, negative therapy, travel expenses, or
anything else that has to do with your kidnapping my daughter who has been
a "hostage" since January. My family has been unfairly victimized by your
agency and you have obstructed justice. You are guilty of conspiracy for
committing fraud and may I remind you that stealing children for profit is
I have plenty of evidence against you Mr. Collins. You are a tyrant. You
are one sick puppy. You took my only child and you will not get away with
it. I promise.
Have a great day
On Mon, Jul 7, 2008 at 8:49 AM,
Good morning, Ms. Dearinger
The Board of Supervisors has referred your inquiry to me for response.
As you know, your daughter was removed from your care and placed in our
custody by the Juvenile Court. A service plan was established that would
have resulted in your daughter being returned to you, but you were unable
or unwilling to follow the simple requirements of that plan that was
ordered by the Court.
We have looked into the allegations that you make concerning your
daughter's safety and find them to be unsubstantiated.
As always, your best option is to retain competent counsel to assist you
this important legal matter.
Thank you for your inquiry.
Lee Collins, Director
San Luis Obispo County Department of Social Services
NOTE: There are emails he said telling me he was going to turn me into a "Marytr". I don't have my computer with me but you can clearly see that the man is a TYRANT. He's trying to force me to see a "therapist" in SLO County. I went to a therapist out of the area. He didn't like that. Could it be because he is the Director on the Mental Health and is also on the non-profit? I think so. Oh the corruption is so thick in SLO

Dear Judge XXXXXX, (names edited for privacy)
I spoke with Senator XXXXX a few weeks ago and have been meaning to call her back. Senator XXXXX knows my story and has been instrumental on bringing this situation to light.
We have a huge corruption problem going on in California and throughout the rest of nation. Good people are being destroyed by a system that was meant to help children. As a former foster parent I am appauled at what has become of the Child protection "industry".
I don't want my daughter to be part of this corruption. She's been sheltered for most of her life and she doesn't understand this sort of evil. My daughter had a very good life with me and we had a nice home. I own a business and I have taken my daughter all over the world. I have raised Jenny since she was 6 months old on my own and we are very close. Jenny was taken last January when she was 16 1/2 years old. CPS took my daughter and my best friend for no reason at all and they did horrible things to her.
Although it is true that my daughter and I had a squabble over a boy I disapproved of last December and I did admit to slightly damaging a "door" to my own home. I had no idea this was a crime or the nightmare I would have to endure because of this agency. An officer told me he did not feel this was child abuse and I cannot see anywhere in the law that state it is. Given the fact that my daughter is almost an adult I feel this incident was taken to the extreme. The damage was done after my daughter was being difficult and I insisted she go with me Christmas shopping. She wanted to sneak out to be with the boy so she kicked me in the lungs and I had an asthma attack. I have emphysema. I did not damage the door to hurt my daughter but rather it was to protect her from seeing the Juvenile deliquent abusive boyfriend. I was trying to open a locked door. CPS took Jenny and conspired with the Police who threw me in jail on $100,000 bail. The door was barely damaged and it was replaced. Jenny was returned 5 days later and we were told to go to counseling. We did everything CPS told us to do and I thought that was it. 43 days later they simply kidnapped my daughter from school.
*** JENNY WAS NOT TAKEN BECAUSE OF A "DOOR". SHE WAS TAKEN OVER A PAPER CLIP CUT THAT SHE INFLICTED TO HERSELF BECAUSE OF CONTINUAL VISITS BY A SOCIAL WORKER AT CPS ***
There were no fights during this 43 day period. Jenny and I usually get along great. My ex-husband started sending emails to the social worker right after she returned home. During this time period Jenny was receiving regular visits from a social worker at school without my knowledge. Jenny would come home moody and lock herself in her room while I obtained parenting books. I called CPS to better understand what was going on with my daughter and I even requested that they remove this social worker from our case. I felt she was biased after reading her report and correspondence with my ex who had made false allegations. My request was denied. This social worker wanted my daughter to see a "certain" therapist. Jenny didn't like the therapist, explaining that she was trying to negatively influence her thoughts.
I allowed Jenny to switch therapists but when the social worker found out she didn't like this. When I called my therapist to report that Jenny had cut herself on her arm at school wiith a paper clip the social worker used this as an excuse to take my daughter; stating this was an "emergency removal. Jenny was taken within two hours after I told her social worker I had found Jenny a different therapist. A FALSE mandated report was made AFTER my daughter was removed.
I would never have guessed that CPS could do such a thing, after all there has never been any history of me abusing Jenny. But CPS distorted and twisted the truth in court for no real reason. I feel they were prejudice against me because of the lies my ex-husband told them. He had lost TWO prior custody cases. I left my ex when Jenny was just a baby and although he was abusive towards me when we were together this never stopped me from letting him see his daughter. In fact, I even let him live on my ranch and work for my business. I had no malice towards him, but apparently he remained bitter. He always told me he had no intention of paying his back child support even after I had lowered his support to 275.00 a month with no interest. I feel certain he used CPS to get custody of our daughter and now I am losing everything I own because of it. CPS is not "custody court" and my daughters father is not a better parent than I am. Taking my daughter away served no real purpose other than traumatizing her.
As a mother it is painful to see how corrupt this agency is in San Luis Obispo. I saw how they hurt Jenny and made her emotionally unstable. Social workers and others coerced, bribed and threatened her. They used scare tactics that were sadistic in nature using "punishment-reward techniques". When Jenny told them she wanted to go home they placed her with chaperones 24 hours a day. She wasn't even allowed to go to the bathroom by herself. She was placed i 5-6 different foster homes and all I could do was cry. I visited her regularly while her father did not. He disconnected his phone. I was only able to see her 1 hour a week "supervised" and eventually CPS cut off all contact. Jenny started cutting all over herself but they still alienated her from me.
When she ran away and came home she was hunted down like prey and dragged back into foster care. She pleaded with everyone including her Attorney and the Judge to let her go home and even applied to become emancipated but Judge Picquet denied all of her requests. He also kept her off court record and told her she was going to "be a good little girl and get on the plane." She was forced to get on a plane in the middle of the night to "Iowa" where her father lives in a trailer.
Once there her cell phone was taken away and she was kept hostage. She wasn't allowed to leave the house and social workers forced her to get a job at a daycare center so she would be monitored while her father worked. This also prevented Jenny from making her court dates which CPS scheduled purposely while she was on a "visit" with her Dad. Jenny did NOT want to be in Iowa and she continued to cut. She told the Ankeny Police and social workers there but no one listened.
CPS went on witch hunts against me. They manufactured false evidence which they used in court. I took all of their drug and alcohol tests which proved I don't have a substance abuse problem but they wanted me to attend classes anyhow so they could get funding. They didn't notify me of court dates so I wouldn't be able to attend and this is how Jenny became a ward of the Court.
Everyone worked in collusion with one another. CPS has terrorized me for speaking out, even using the police who have manufactured lies and have broken into my home without a warrant. My court documents have been stolen and I suspect tampered with. The courts in SLO stamped the back of my filings and withheld my case files from me. CPS breaks every law that exists pertaining to Children Welfare and they do not follow the WIC guidelines. I had an attorney that I paid to help me but apparently he works closely with CPS. He did not represent my best interest. CPS is now using his partner as my daughter's Guardian Ad Litim who said to me "your daughter is a hard nut to crack". That says it all. No one represented my daughter's best interest. There was NO investigation. No one visited my home and CASA never even met my daughter.
CPS had no right to take my daughter for they had no true case of child abuse or neglect and they did not have a warrant as required by law.
CPS violated HIIPA laws and faxed confidential information to the doctors and slandered me. I didn't even know this Doctor and my health was jepordized because of their interference. Lies were placed into my medical file due to their slander and the doctor and therapist refused to give me copies of my file.
The Director of CPS Lee Collins told me he would turn me into a "Martyer" if I fought back. I brought a file cabinet to my meeting with him with all the laws and he told me he didn't care about the law and was "friends with the Judge". The Police issued me a false DUI to stop me from speaking out in Washington DC and now I have a warrant which is based on the another lie.
I have done TV and radio shows but CPS in San Luis Obispo keeps slandering my name and they even call into the radio stations stating that I am crazy when I do not have any mental condition. They do this tp parents to keep my daughter in the system. They have also placed an unlawful "gag order" on me but I pointed out to the Judge that he is required to uphold the US Constitution and asked him what is the big secret - the "paper clip or the door". This made him angry, especially after I offered to let him see his elected official form that he signed to uphold the Constitution. Then they tried to cite me on contempt. It was getting worse and after several house raids I decided to flee the state.
The State of California dropped the "door" charges but they still have my child.
The kangaroo courts that parents have to face due to CPS are horrendous. There is no justice in San Luis Obispo. I had videos, tape recordings and text messages from Jenny but they didn't care. CPS flagged the videos I had on YouTube of that Jenny and I made when she ran home because they wanted to hide the truth. Even the State Ombudsman wouldn't meet with me. It seems that the entire system is broken. The police won't charge the people who broke into my house and stole $30,000.00, my car, our belongings and now the bank has cut off my line of credit due to this fraud. My house is in foreclosure now and soon I will loose my business that was worth over 1 million dollars. Did I deserve this?
I never got the chance to present the truth.
This is why I want permission to take my daughter out of this country so that justice can prevail. I want to meet with the United Nations so we can open up these "secret" courts. I feel certain this would not have happened if spectators were witnessing the events and equally certain that there are other cases just like mine. I have reviewed the Geneva Treaty on Human Rights and many articles were were violated.
SIR, WE NEED TO LIFT THE VEIL AND OPEN UP THE COURTS SO JUSTICE CAN BE SERVED

America’s experimentation with genetics as a tool for social change is not new. In the 1920s the United States became the world center of eugenic activity and social policy. From 1907-1960 more than 100,000 innocent Americans were sterilized in more than 30 states. In the 1930s and 1940s Hitler’s scientists took eugenics to the extreme - establishing human breeding farms for "Aryans," large-scale sterilization and euthanasia programs for the mentally and physically disabled, and death camps for the races they deemed "genetically inferior" or "unworthy life."
Both the American and German eugenics movements of the 1920s and 30s identified human beings as either hereditarily valuable or inferior. They established programs to purify the "race" of "lower grade" and "degenerate" groups, thus extending racism to include a new generic classification - the "genetically inferior." Not surprisingly, the targets always turned out to be the traditional victims of racism - Jews, Gypsies, Blacks, Indians, and other minorities.
After Hitler’s defeat, the American eugenics movement fell into disfavor, appealing primarily to the KKK, neo-Nazis, and a small groups of old-line scientists steeped in the racist theories of the pre-war period. In the 1960s their key spokesman was Stanford physicist William Shockley, who was the first to suggest offering cash incentives to people with low IQ scores who would agree to sterilization. He called his proposal the "voluntary sterilization bonus plan." Despite his status as a Noble laureate, Professor Shockley was widely regarded as a racist and a kook within the academic community. Nevertheless, he laid the foundation upon which the new eugenics movement would eventually be resurrected.
In 1974, Federal District Court Judge Gerhard Gesell estimated that "over the last few years" between 100,000 and 150,000 low-income persons were sterilized under federally funded programs. Ruling on behalf of plaintiffs in a class action suit, Judge Gesell stated that "an indefinite number" of those sterilized were "improperly coerced" into accepting sterilization. Judge Gesell observed that "the dividing line between family planning and eugenics was murky" (Relf v. Weinberger et. al. U.S. District Court of D.C., March 15, 1974). In may cases welfare patients were told that they could lose their benefits if they did not submit to the sterilization procedure. On September 21, 1975 The New York Times Magazine reported that doctors in major cities were routinely performing hysterectomies on mostly black welfare recipients as a form of sterilization, a practice that came to be known euphemistically among medical insiders as the "Mississippi appendectomy."
Today those who advocate eugenics have access to far more sophisticated technologies than those of their pre-war predecessors. For example, Norplant, a drug approved by the FDA in 1990, provides an alternative to permanent sterilization for women by preventing pregnancy for up to five years. A popular proposal to reduce the birthrate among welfare recipients and unwed teens is to induce them, through monetary incentives of the threat of a loss of benefits, to have Norplant surgically implanted in their upper arm. In 1991, Kansas representative Kerry Patrick defended a proposal to offer $500 to any welfare mother who accepted Norplant, saying the program "has the potential to save the taxpayers millions of their hard-earned dollars. Something must be done to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies..." (The New York Times, Feb. 9, 1991).
In 1994, legislators in Connecticut and Florida introduced bills that would provide cash bonuses for welfare recipients who accepted Norplant. Florida and Colorado have introduced incentive programs for men to accept sterilization. the Florida bill would offer $400 to men living below the poverty line for undergoing a vasectomy; the Colorado bill would allow criminals early release. While none of these bills has yet become law, the momentum for eugenic solutions is growing. If current trends continue, we can expect to see such sterilization programs gain legal sanction across America.

and the US Crisis of Judicial Corruption
by Dr Les Sachs (Dr Leslie Sachs)
In the headlines are the appalling news stories of Americans carrying out murderous attacks on judges and their families. In a matter of days, one judge was shot and killed in his own courtroom, while another judge had family members brutally murdered in their home.
These news stories are, however, related to another news story, which is the most taboo subject of the American media - the expanding crisis of corruption among American judges and lawyers. At question is whether the deepening despair of Americans about their own legal system, is fueling some of these violent attacks on judges.
Much is written now about how America's economy is resembling that of a banana republic, given how America is sunk in preposterous debt, and how the US dollar currency is sinking toward a possible collapse in the near future.
But there is another way that America is also like a banana republic, in that its legal system - contrary to its Hollywood image - has become a sinkwell of secret proceedings, the jailing of the innocent, and political misconduct; and how it is sullied with documented corruption, fake trials and court fraud.
These facts are not generally understood, because of how judicial corruption is the most un-reported news story in the American landscape. It is the category of news story which America's newspapers and media are most afraid to report, even when clear proof is in their hands.
In America right now, judges - and lawyers who are protected by judges - can commit felony crimes in broad delight, leave the proof lying around, and yet avoid being prosecuted or even having their crimes be reported by the media. The people who work in the media see a lot of material on court misconduct, and yet they know this is the story of which they dare not speak. The lack of media coverage, in turn, encourages more judicial corruption, leaving millions of Americans in anger and despair.
Confronting the secrets of US judicial corruption, is a key to understanding America's whole social crisis, and its role in the world right now. Here are some elements of this situation that you won't see in run-of-the-mill news reports:
The innocent in USA courts: imprisoned, sentenced to death, losing all they have
The key statistic to understanding America, is that it has over 2.2 million prisoners (!) out of about 300 million people. This is 25 per cent of all the prisoners, anywhere, in the entire world. By comparison, the most populous nation, China, with about 1.3 billion people, only has a few hundred thousand prisoners, despite being denounced by the USA as a "repressive" country.
1 out of every 45 working-age males (that is, not counting children or the elderly) is BEHIND BARS in the United States. With working-age black males, the figures are about 1 out of 20. This is the stuff of revolution.

I need everyone to write to President Obama at the link provided below:
Once this is done please have 1 person from each state contact me so we can move to the next level. We will need at least 10-15 of the "worst cases" of court abuse to be presented. Please make sure you have evidence and witnesses who can attest to these facts and that it is well documented. I need someone who is a good speaker. I will be starting with California and moving West.
GET READY AMERICA - WE'RE FIGHTING BACK. LET 2009 BE THE YEAR THAT WE OPEN THE COURTS

crap off my nachos (hey I didn't name it)
"words are only words.... anyone can spit them out.
honestly i could care less if you like me or not.
I'm not a transformer. I cant shapshift into whatever you want me to be...
If you love me then THANK YOU if you hate me then FUCK YOU"
-lady soverign she is one smart little british lady......"
NOTE FROM MOM: What a little warrior my daughter is. Such a fighter and I'm so proud of her. She has spoken out but the system keeps silencing her. They flag her videos and even her CPS reform video that she placed on her MySpace page.
I put Jenny on my Foundation, Families Unite 4 Children's Rights because this agency violated her Civil Rights as well as many other laws. I hope my daughter will speak out and tell people what CPS did to her once she turns 18. They alienate children and badmouth parents to turn them against their own parent. What facists and all for
M-O-N-E-Y!! Shame on CPS!
These are not the words of a helpless abused child. This is my daughter who I raised to think independently. She fought for year to come home. We will be giving proof of what they did to everyone. WE WILL REFORM CPS
HEY CPS: you will never destroy my daughter's spirit and tenacity because she's a "chip of the 'ole block"!
Jenny for Congress!!!
Change is coming! Please send your story to
The main points could be (use your own
words or feel free to use the following):
A new form of pernicious violence against women and children is
rampant in our country.
1. Across the country, family courts are removing children from
parents (mostly mothers) who are trying to protect them from physical
and sexual harm. Even nursing infants are torn from their non-abusive
mothers. Courts are placing these children in the custody of the very
parents whom the children insist are abusing them. Protective pare
nts are bankrupted trying to protect their children from batterers
and molesters, who use family courts to obtain custody of their
victims and avoid prosecution. The right of parental access trumps
the right of child safety.
2. Family courts have become lawless star chamber proceedings with no
due process or checks and balances. Courts have unfettered power with
no effective oversight that would ensure that children are safe from
physical and sexual harm. Appeals are ineffective because they are
lengthy, prohibitively expensive, and do not address child safety
3. Because of our government's complete lack of responsiveness to
these violations of child safety, a petition was filed with the Inter-
American Commission on Human Rights. Older children are speaking out
about their court-ordered abuse, which in some cases is comparable to
third world rape and torture camps.
4. We need Federal hearings and investigation to bring this hidden
problem to light,20to return the children to their protective
parents, and to hold accountable the perpetrators and the systems
that enable and order their abuse.
5. In my case (a few sentences of the most egregious events in your
case. You can even provide photos and videos.)
If you include the names, county, state of those who harmed your
child, there is always a concern about retribution if the court
somehow finds out. You could always state that you fear retribution
and are using a pseudonym, which is a powerful and accurate statement.
Here is a great article that might help if you want to add more
A few other websites you could add to your email are:
Thank you for your strength and courage and don't be shy about naming names. These people who broke the law need to be prosecuted. Shame on CPS for hurting children.
definition according to: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/conspiracy
con·spir·a·cy (kən-spîr'ə-sē) Pronunciation Key
n. pl. con·spir·a·cies
An agreement to perform together an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act.
A group of conspirators.
Law An agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime or accomplish a legal purpose through illegal action.
A joining or acting together, as if by sinister design: a conspiracy of wind and tide that devastated coastal areas.
YEP. THAT DESCRIBES THE CHILD PROTECTION "INDUSTRY"
Therapists, Doctors, Lawyers, Child Advocates, Hospitals, Politicians, & various programs. Even the media won't listen. Who do these children have who will look out for their interest? The system has failed.
NOTE: I am not referring to "everyone" who works at CPS. I am referring to many social workers and the people at the top. There are MANY people who think they are helping children because of the lies they were told. If you want to help children find out the truth. Meet the parents. Sit on the child death review boards. DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH!
Please help innocent parents. These children need a voice.

Love what you do.... I have my own nightmare CPS story that had me endlessly talking about it for years.. yet, no one listened. I had no choice but to put it in to my music....and the pain and the torture of what CPS did to me is probably why i write songs in the first place. But... I back you and I just wanted to let you know.
keep fighting the good fight my friend.

Some schools like Atascadero High are teaching children how to be homosexual. My daughter was removed right after I mentioned doing "homeschooling" due to my business travels. I had no idea they get federal funds for helping CPS kidjack children or that homeschooling was up before the senate.

The toughest job I've ever held, emotionally, was representing indigent parents in Juvenile Court dependency proceedings.
"Dependent" children are those who are abused, neglected, or otherwise without parental care or control. So you probably think their parents are scuzzball slime, right? WRONG.
Most of my clients were poor people caught in a system that employed just-out-of-college middle class kids to go out into homes and determine whether children were at risk. Turn-over in their job was tremendous. Most lasted no more than 6 months or, at most, a year. I handled cases in which these social workers deemed children to be at risk and had them removed from their homes by the police because:
* there was a cat seen sleeping on a child's bed
* the children (ages 11, 14, and 15) were home alone (at 3:00 in the afternoon while their parents were grocery shopping)
* the parents couldn't explain how a child had been injured (the injury occurred sometime during a two day period during which the child had been in the care of relatives on both sides of the family as well as with the parents)
* the child's burn wasn't properly treated for 5 days (but my client had taken her daughter to the emergency room right after the accidental burn happened; it was the hospital who sent her home with ointment instead of properly assessing the extent of the injury)
* the child has bruising on his lower back (this was "Mongolian spots," a dark pigmented area commonly seen on kids with East Asian ancestry)
* they were living in a shelter (their home had burned down)
These caseworkers also testified that parents were unfit because "the mother took that child on a city bus" and "although the children have proper beds, their mother is sleeping on a mattress on the floor" (my client's explanation: she thought it was more important to spend limited funds on the kids' needs rather than her own). When one mother did some wildcrafting (this was when "Stalking the Wild Asparagus" was popular), the caseworker accused her of making the children eat weeds.
All this was going on while real abuse and life threatening situations were being ignored. One caseworker failed to take action when, during a home visit, she noticed that a previously alert baby had become lethargic. "I just figured he was retarded or something," she testified, explaining why she left him there to die of a brain injury. And, in a case that actually made the newspapers (most Juvenile Court proceedings are kept confidential), three mentally challenged girls were sexually abused by their father and his friends for years, despite repeated reporting of suspicions by their school. Reported sexual abuse of a toddler was discounted when the doctor who was supposed to perform an exam refused because the child screamed and seemed terrified when he tried to examine her. So, without evidence, she was sent back to the abusive home.
Once the kids were in foster care, parents were limited to one one-hour visit per month, in the presence of a caseworker. One caseworker noted that my client seemed "unable to control" her 5 young children during these visits - the kids, who only saw each other during these visits, tended to get a little rowdy. Another faulted how my client interacted with her child - my client, who had been raised Amish, explained that she had not been raised to make a public show of emotion. A caseworker tried to stop visitation with my client (the father) because the child would be out of control when he went back to the foster home -- her example: the little boy didn't want to stop playing with a truck his father had given him. Another caseworker made my clients come to visits for more than six months "to prove they would show up," but never brought the children to the visits. Another testified that my client had failed to keep a visitation appointment without calling to cancel as if that were proof of irresponsibility, even though my client had provided her with a newspaper article showing that she (the client/mother) had been in an automobile accident and was in a coma on the day of the scheduled visitation.
I could go on for pages, but I'll stop here.
The job was a project funded by Allegheny County through the Allegheny County Bar Association. I and another attorney - Katherine B. Emery, who is now a Judge in Washington County -- handled all of the cases ourselves. It was described as "part-time," although hearings started at 8:30 a.m. every day and sometimes continued into the evening. We were expected to provide our own offices, etc. out of a small stipend that was often paid months late. Three judges heard cases, and Kathy and I were constantly running from one courtroom to another. The few minutes out of court were spent in a waiting area, interviewing our clients and trying to prepare cases on the fly. Research, appeals, etc. had to be done on the weekends.
After about two years, I walked out of a court room and punched out a window in the attorney waiting area. I realized that it was only matter of time before I hit a social worker or a judge.
The project is still in existence, but now it has funding, offices and full time employees.
And me? I'm still burnt out.
