“Where have all the good people gone?” Lyrics from a song … and yet, where have all the good people gone? Where are all the good people in Arizona? Where are the good, the brave, and the just DCS workers, DCS supervisors, DCS management, court-appointed attorneys, law enforcement officers, judges, legislators, and citizens?
How can anyone learn of even the possibility of just one child who was not abused or neglected, being taken from a loving mother or father or both … removed from the safety and security of their home and all they know and love … and not be incredibly moved?
How can a DCS worker visit a home and demand a child out of the arms of a mother or father, while they beg and plead and cry and scream and fall to their knees … when that worker knows that no crime has been committed? How can they not be moved and see what they are doing?
How can a law enforcement officer, sworn to uphold the law and the constitution, hired to protect and serve the citizens, stand by and watch silently? How can an officer allow, approve, and enforce the unconstitutional act of DCS workers entering citizens’ houses without a warrant and inspecting or interviewing children, and then taking custody of those children … when that officer knows that no crime has been committed or reported? How can such officers live with themselves as they witness and enforce such violations, acting in complete opposition of all they represent?
How can a DCS supervisor approve such removals when they know that the accusations do not even approach any type of abuse or neglect, but consist of vague observations of “poor parenting skills”, dirty dishes, or simply requests for second opinions in medical treatments?
How can a prosecutor work for the attorney general’s office and agree to press charges against parents that they know have committed no crime, perpetuating and making final the separation of families for no reason? How can they knowingly prosecute the innocent parents and sentence these innocent children to an abusive system, in which they are much more likely to experience abuse than in the home from which they were taken? How can they ignore the exculpatory evidence that clearly illustrates the innocence of parents and still proceed with prosecution?
How can lawyers, paid by the state to represent those among society who cannot afford private attorneys, advise parents to sign away their parental rights, knowing that they are betraying the very trust of those parents, working in direct opposition to both the interests of the parents and the children, and full aware of the consequences? How can they take assignments and proceed to neither meet their clients nor consult with them nor work for them, knowing full well that their inaction will need to the destruction of those families and a lifetime of trauma to that child?
How can a judge sit in a position of authority and, without looking at evidence or listening to a parent speak, make rulings that are in complete opposition with justice? How can a judge sit in the courtroom, where he or she has been entrusted with the lives and the safety of children, in the presence of parents and grandparents with tears streaming down their faces, begging for their children, and rule — without just cause or evidence of abuse or neglect — that those family members should never see their children again? How can those judges not see and know the pain and torment they are causing to not just the families, but to the very children they are charged to protect?
How can a legislator, upon hearing about such occurrences, turn away or tend to other issues, while children are being taken against their will from their families and homes like in some Nazi invasion? How can any other mundane issue take a moment of a legislator’s time away from this priority? How can they not be consumed and tormented at the thought of innocent parents losing their children to a state agency with no crime having been committed? How can they continue in their daily work once aware of the crimes of the state that are being perpetrated daily upon their own constituents … the very ones they are elected to serve?
How can anyone, who claims even the smallest slice of any religion or goodness or compassion, permit, even through their silence or inaction, the state to take advantage of the poor, the widows, the fatherless, the children …. “the least of these”? How can you claim to love anyone while you turn your back on your brother?
How can any one with a shred of human kindness not be appalled at the thought of these accusations and these experiences? How can any normal, decent human being not want to reach out and end this suffering and comfort these children and parents, and reunite these families, and prevent these atrocities from recurring?
Is everyone in this entire system so utterly selfish and self-serving and arrogant that they care not for another human life? Is everyone simply bought and bribed and paid for? What advantage or job or payment or price was big enough? What reward was received or what job threatened? So someone receives money, or keeps a job … meanwhile that child is certainly traumatized and most likely abused beyond what you could ever imagine … truly abused …. for just some money or for a job.
How much was that child’s life worth?
Where have all the good people gone?

PLEASE HELP US ALERT OUR LEGISLATORS NOW!!!!!!!!!!
From April 1 – Sept. 2014, DCS petitioned to terminate parental rights for 2,749 children. They withdrew the petitions for 5 children.
!!! THE PARENTAL RIGHTS WERE TERMINATED FOR 2,730 CHILDREN – FOREVER !!! (We cannot account for what became of 14 children.)
That is in a SIX month period. Annualized that is 5,460 per year THAT WILL NEVER SEE THEIR PARENTS AGAIN BECAUSE OF DCS !!!
In light of the above, AND that the Feds CONFIRMED that states are needlessly taking custody of our children, and that ARIZONA is off the charts in terms of children taken relative to national averages that are decreasing every year, there needs to be a moratorium on removing children from their homes except in the most extreme cases, and a moratorium on SEVERING PARENTAL RIGHTS until investigations have been conducted on what has been, and is going on in DCS! This is too important an issue to let continue another day under the known premise that MANY of these kids should never have been taken by DCS, never mind have PARENTAL RIGHTS SEVERED – – – FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hopefully you have been reading the tragedy of families being destroyed by DCS. As you read this, today a conspiracy between DCS and family courts will tear 35 children away from their families in Arizona. Another 35 children will be taken tomorrow, another 35 the day after, and so it goes, every day, quite often with no explanation and no recourse.
The time to act is right now to HOLD HEARINGS AND TO TAKE BOLD ACTION to stop the conspiracy of the courts and the reign of terror! Time is running out for many families whose children have been torn away and put up quickly for adoption. It’s barbaric that this could be allowed to happen to a single family, and yet in Arizona it is happening in droves, reminiscent of another time that history paints as one of the most immoral and inhumane eras in time. A time when children and families were herded into cattle cars, often to never see each other again.
Make no mistake: judges have been trained to know, as seen on video, that the state receives vast financial incentives not only from foster care, but also from increases in adoption. Arizona was second in the nation behind Texas in gaining more than $2.7 million in 2012 in a federal initiative to increase adoptions, and more than $7.7 million from 2008 to 2012. In contrast, some states received no adoption incentive funds at all during the entire period–and by studying their systems we see that they focus their efforts and resources in scheduled family programs and in-home support for nearly all DCS families to encourage reunification. Some states have a 70% reunification rate, and the national average is 60%. Arizona’s, of course, is well below the national average. It should not be overlooked that these are children who belong to parents, yet have been stolen from them by DCS.
Meanwhile, the adoptions marketplace in Arizona is a slick operation, with an easily accessible website where children from loving families are primped by state volunteers for glamor shots, so strangers can shop for the child of their choice like one would shop for a dog or piece of clothing. This is very sick, and draconian, i.e., kids up for grabs, pick your sex, hair color, age and more.
The sinister conspiracy between judges and courts creates true urgency! Judges have been caught training other judges to check off neglect boxes for any families who come into their courts in order to ensure federal funds. [SEE Child removal for money? and part of the video is here].
Most frightening of all is that when DCS petitions the court to terminate parental rights, those rights are terminated 99.5% of the time in Arizona! For cases in Maricopa County, when DCS petitions the court to terminate parental rights, those rights are terminated 99.7% of the time! Meanwhile families who retain private attorneys to save their children, and get their own children out of the vice grip of DCS are spending up to $300,000.00 to succeed when apparently the chances, for cases like the Diegel sisters, is 0.3 % of prevailing. This is a NATIONAL DISGRACE!
But it gets much worse. Without evidence or understanding why children were taken, without allowing parents to present their own evidence or that of doctors, and often based on the lies of DCS workers, parents are gag ordered. This creates a snowball effect. Because the details of all these cases are never made public, there can be no public outrage or outcry about the criminal nature of the parents’ constitutional rights being denied — parental rights, freedom of speech, right to a fair and hasty trial, right to fair representation, right to limited search and seizure, and so many more. Additionally, there is NO DUE PROCESS.
The worst part is that the judges will postpone trials that have gag orders to reach the time limits of parental objection in order to reach easy termination of parental rights. As you read this, parents are waiting on the clock with no recourse as the courts count down the days when they can terminate rights on a parent. This is sinister and criminal. In many other states, courts, DCS, and parents are working together on plans for how parents can keep their children and families together. In Arizona, parents and children are herded like cattle through a system that ignores their rights and could care less about their case. All Arizona needs to know is that someone called them–could be a doctor, an anonymous tip, even someone taking revenge on the family–and there will never ever again be another opportunity for this family to reunite. Once parental rights are severed, children are herded through the system and slated for adoption.
Tragically, unelected officials threaten any advocates or legislators who speak out about cases in which a judge has illegally issued gag orders. The system is corrupt and under a great conspiracy for money and power.
Won’t you ask yourself if you have been raised to this position to make an immediate difference at such a time as this?
We are hoping and praying that you recognize this calling and the urgency to end this cycle of tragedy that churns forward by the day. Please schedule emergency hearings to stop this assault on children and families of Arizona for which YOU ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO CAN STOP THIS HOLOCAUST OF FAMILIES.
