Regarding Corruption in NC DSS, GAL, Lawyers &Judges

To the Editor:

I am writing with great concern about the Cumberland County Department of Social Services.

Mrs. Fennell, D$$-Investigator of CCDSS, embellishes and files a non-secure custody petition Sept 17, 2010 to illegally take my children from my care and custody.  There were also threats to take my unborn child once he was born-my due date was Dec 25, 2010.  On Dec 6, 2010 unknown of my rights; I was coerced and under duress into an agreement to falsely stipulate that I was  “dependant” with the promise that my children would be returned to me the next day and they (CCDSS) would  leave me alone.

The stress of all this DSS harassment resulted in complications with my blood pressure and other things.  My Christmas baby was stillborn on December 29, 2010.  Christian would never have to experience the corruption at CCDSS any more.  The fight was just starting for my other children.

This so-called stipulation was a fraud.  Instead Cumberland County DSS turned it around and made the false stipulation the reason to keep my children in custody. At this time I was not properly explained or informed by a court appointed lawyer what the stipulation meant. Later on I had to fire my court appointed attorney because DSS and MY own attorney mislead me into  this false stipulation.

I soon found out what a stipulation meant-that I was agreeing to the false statements the DSS  were accusing me of.  And that by me stipulating this meant DSS did not have to prove anything, leaves DSS in the clear and me the bad guy legally.  Then, I filed various motions including a motion to rescind my false stipulation, a motion for Discovery and a motion to overturn the phony court order that was based on a false stipulation.

The Judge presiding over my case abused the legal process by not hearing my valid motions for 4 month until the Chief Judge of Cumberland County excused the judge that usually presides over my case that day and a surprising appearance. With Her (Chief Judge Keever) presiding over my case that day October 5, 2011.  It took two requests to get discovery from DSS. The discovery was Complete in November 2011. And it showed “Nothing” but non- substantiated opinions and contradiction from the DSS-Investigator.  The GAL had literally nothing in the file about me; however they were just simply copy and pasting lies from CCDSS.  Till this Day the Judges presiding over my case refuse to see the facts (truth) about all of their illegal rulings.

AS OF 3/7/2012: Judge Edward A Pone improperly dismissed my motions to rescind my false stipulation and to overturn the phony orders that were based on false stipulations.  Pone’s Order of Dismaissal was filed April 9, 2012 and appealed April 20th 2012.   On May 8th 2012 Brenda Reid Jackson, CCDSS Director, and agents (CCDSS) and CCGAL program filed a joint motion to dismiss my appeal and filed an amended motion on May 9th 2012 that was heard in Court on May 23, 2012. CCDSS argument was based from the their statement of “public policy” and NOT based on any law of North Caroilina and “WON”

WOW, this is so obvious that CCD$$ and the CCGAL program are disparate for my case not to leave Cumberland County.

THERE IS NO JUSTICE IN FAYETTEVILLE, CUMBERLAND COUNTY NORTH CAROLINA.”  This seriously bothers me because the laws of North Carolina and the United States Constitution are still on the books and the rule of law gives me the right to justice and to appeal from the unjust rulings.  Excuse me, but DSS policy does not overturn the Constitution and the law.

These Judges prefer to continue with a lie in-stead of FACTS.  And my children are still being held hostage by CCDSS.

The hateful DSS, GAL and the mighty judges in Cumberland County, North Carolina, acting under the “color of law” have taken my children away from me as well as taken all of my legal rights away from me.  If Cumberland County can do it, this can be done anywhere.

Folks,  do NOT ever, ever, ever sign anything from the DSS and Guardian ad Litem (GAL).  Do not ever, ever stipulate to anything.  This story is repeated all over Cleveland County, North Carolina and the USA everyday.  Stay tuned for more information I am putting together regarding the DSS.

    Thank you!

      File a complaint with the Judicial Standards Commission and let them know your 14th Amendment right to due process is being violated. I am pro se in a case against my landlord who use to be a city councilman. My case has been constantly put off by the judge allowing frivolous motions by the defendants attorney.

  3. me and my kids mother have had our kids taken and we try to do what the ask but the don’t want to give them back is the any body or any way that I can do anything about it

    I too am in a bind I can’t find a way out of with Cumberland County DSS. This all started for me because my son (15) beat me up. He was on probation at the time and his probation officer did NOTHING. Our fight was over a 32 year old man who I thought he shouldn’t be “hanging arround with”. The Man came to my home, kicked in my door, held a gun to me & my kids & took My 15 year old & left. I called the cops. They refused to do anything because he was claiming that he was My son’s father & my ex-husband (His father is on his birth cert. To which I showed the officer’s. His father has been arrested several times & spent time in NC State prision. He could easily have found his mug shot on the internet.) All night long the accusations from this man & threats from him were getting more & more violent.) The next day my son went to school & said if he was sent home he’d burn our house down & kill us all. That I stabbed him (no stab mark so then he changed it to well she tried to I guess) DSS showed up at my home. Which was clean, I had food, my kids were clean ( I have 2 younger children with my husband a daughter (11) & a Son (7) they were the only children there when DSS showed up. I asked them to go play in their room & showed the worker all the texts, & played her all the Voice mails (all about how he was better for my son & if I didn’t let him have him he would make my life hell, call DSS so I’d loose all my kids, & get me put in jail) It was a malicious complaint! How did that get me to where I am now. This was March 18,2013, The petition for non-secure custody they filed was only for my son but listed my other 2 children. Although there were NO allegations that pretained to them at this point. I was the “Victim” but guess not. They managed to deny us any legal council, Judge Pone has always told us not to speak we don’t have the right to. My ajudication hearing they promiced if I said I was guilty of this they would remove my younger two off the petition. I wasn’t guilty so I refused. But I tried to explain that I needed a continuance as my sitter had cancelled on me & I had to go home & get my children off the bus. DENIED. I had time to make proper arrangements. (Which I did but I got cancelled on that morning & I didn’t have another person whom could get the kids. I tried. He said “the ajudication can be done without you if you think it’s more important to pick up your kids than to be in court”. It was & they managed to ajudicate my younger 2 kids on 1. My 7 year old says he’s gay. (To which my worker told me once they finially made up enough to get them away from me that he was going to a good christian home & that’s what he needed to fix his problem.” & 2. My daughter’s “friend’s” mom called the school social worker because my daughter had 2 other friends she was spending time with. She claimed they were bad influences on her. (The other 2 girls just didn’t like her daughter & truth be told I had to ask her to leave my home several times because that girl would just walk by my youngest son & push him or slap him . Not that she would have ANY RIGHT TO HURT HIM but he literally did Nothing to prevoke her assultive behavior) I had no one to speak for me sense all this began & have been told by Judge Pone that I have NO Right to speak. Then came the next court review. Judge Pone HATES dogs he made that clear. I had 3 pitt-bulls (whom mostly stayed in a dog pin or were gaited into a area where I have no carpet; ceramic Tile & Hardwood.) Then the DSS workers say I have flea’s. No my dogs were on trifexsis they had no flea’s, current on All Shots etc. Didn’t matter My younger two stayed on the case. The next review date accusations were made that I sent my younger 2 to school dirty. So I went to talk & get statements from their teacher’s all of which said my kids were clean daily & no one asked them anything at all. My son (7) his teacher added one thing but not in writing. That the principal came to her & said that me & my husband were child abuser’s & that my son needed extra care & attention until DSS woke up & removed him. She found that alarming & so did I. Then came the next review for which my car broke down & I forgot my cell phone so I couldn’t call anyone until I got help. This time alligations were that I disagreed with My son (15) on his belifs. (TRUE I DO. He wants to be a neo-nazi & that is NOT ok at all!) Well apparently my disagrement on this issue requires me to “get my head checked” (Judge Pone) He ordered me to psycological eval although I’m currently & for 6 years have been under care of a therapist & psychiatrist. Next Review: Substance Abuse. Mainly me & the fact I take about 7 percriptions Daily. All written for legit conditions by legit doctors whom know what all I take. I have OCD,ADHD,& PTSD (enduced by DSS) I also have Lupus. So yes I get narcotic pain killer’s. But everytime they have sent me to drug testing my pill count was either where it should be or I had more than I should (due to some days are worse than other’s) On Tuesday I found out all this stress has caused my Lupus to go after my kidney’s. Now I’m in bad shape. DSS had no knowlege of this because I said nothing. It didn’t matter; On Thursday Oct 24,2013 they under Judge King got premission to take away my other 2 children. (DSS is refusing to place them with Family & has them at Falcon which is the same place my son was initially sent to until beaten & raped at night by some boys whom broke into his room. The one kid was put in jail, my son got no medical attention nor has anyone listened to what he said. They said he was lying about the rape & put him in Holly Hill Mental Hospital to make sure anything he might say would be disregarded.) On 10.24.13 the allegations were 1. That my husband & I fight. (Domestic Violence) & occasionally we have a argument but he’s never so much as laid a hand on me. I was willing to strip down in court to prove it. 2. Substance Abuse (both these allegations are said to have come from my 7 year old. Who was in the middle of anti-drug week at school. I. Looked on the wep page from the bulliten sent home from his school to see what they were being taught. 3 days they spoke about good & bad feelings & 2 days they spoke about 2 drugs Beer & Tobacco. I smoke; wonder why he said that. However my daughter did not have any issues or concerns according to the GAL but on the court date my GAL never comes her Rep comes. Then it states that accusations were brought from both children. Substance abuse is NUTS we have passed all their drug tests! On top of that I told my worker I had to use the restroom just in case my case was called. It was while I was in the bathroom & I was denied entry into the court room. (Judge King) How is any of this right? There is NO justice for anyone in this system! How can their be no proof what so ever just hearsay & they take my kids. They had proof to the contrary on substance abuse. Now My medical conditions & medications are the main player in all of this. (Isn’t that illegal?). All which my son’s father’s attny continues to bring up over & over. According to the Law & standards (which UNC School of Goverment has a website full off DSS laws & legislation free) attorney’s can’t represent one person & make accusations at another or introduce oral testimony. I can’t see or even speak to either of my children. I want to appeal this entire case due to a conflict of intrest with Judge Pone on my child’s father’s case where his 3 kids were removed. This was announced in court & I didn’t agree to let him stay I figured that was going to cause issue with him treating me fairly. DSS is corrupt & sadly it seems that the WRONG PEOPLE keep getting caught up in this mess. Their is no justice carried out in that courtroom. Just allegation & more junk I have to do to get my kids back. Where does it end? Don’t I have any legal recourse? I completely understand how you feel. This is a currupt & unjust system. DSS holds all the cards & you are GUILTY period. I shared my story because you shared yours. I completely understand. I feel as if I can’t win at all. That I’ve lost them forever. Their buisness is destroying families not helping them. It’s all a money game & sadly no one cares about people like us whom are caught in this never ending cycle. I’m so sorry you had to go through it. I’m greatful that you shared your story. Thank You.

      My son & I are involved in the now 13 th year of custody court in Cumberland County nc District 12 court. I filed for custody in 2001 after father brought child unconscious to my parents home after his 1st visit. I won temporary custody (Judge Donaldson) and then was granted a restraining order by Judge Cherry. I filed for full custody but he father never showed up in court. Immediately following father filed for custody even though he was an abusive horrible alchoholic just for revenge. By law he should not have been able to file as there was an open case against him. He ridiculously announced he wanted to pay child support(???!!!) He had already been ordered to do so. After abuse was testified to in court Judge Steihl ordered full custody tome and limited supervised vusits to father on every other weekend. He came for a few but then did not bother tocome around anymore. He was also caught collecting VA benefits for child andrecieved more thanhe paid for support of child. It was for monetary gain.

      He never won, but had swore he would starve us to death when he had to leave my home and is still at it.

      Too much to write here, but suffice itto say he somehow got a new judge and since 2008 when she was politically appointed in I have never had a fair hearing.

      The opposing attorney apparently trashed all the previous files and with every new court date (there have been approx. 50), a new court file date began all over, and unbeknownst to me a false custody agreement was filed (illegally) and father and his new wife went into schools and filed it thus blocking my legal access to my child. His wife is a LIFE CATE PLANNER AND DISABILITY SPECIALIST and keeps trying to put my son on pills claiming disabiluties for benefits.

      Many harmful situations have come from.his lies and it got to the point I had to take my son to a therapist who concluded that his only problems stem from this continued court battle continuously filed by his father. The claims of fathers wife were proven false, the court informed, and ignored.

      Too muchmore to write but know this i have been theatened, ridiculed in court, constantly have to haveel psy evals and test costing thousands of dollars each and then court drags on for years and told they are old i have to have another with no reasongiven. Father is ex special forces and now teaches at JFK SpecWarfare center and I have repeatedly been told that is why. While SERVING YOUR COUNTRY IS HONORABLE, THIS DOES NOT MAKE ALL SOLDIERS GOOD PARENTS. We have a high abuse rate here in Fay. Yet abuse is often ignored due to military service.
      NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO BE BROKEN FINANCIALLY PHYSICALLY MENTALLY AND EMOTIONALLY TO PROTECT THEIR CHILD AND SELF. IT IS LIERALLY CRIMINAL.

      LASTLY I CALLED DSS WHO INVESTIGATION DID NOTHING FOR MY SON. The social worker keepstelling me everytime I see her that she is former military and a military widow.

      I go backto court on 21 jan on the forthfloor as they do not want a regular courtroom to hear the truth. Funny whenI was not allowed for years to defend or say a word I was humiliated in front of hundreds of persons again and again…

    Me and my fiancee are going through the same situation dealing with Waynecounty nc dss.I have told my story a thousand times about the lies and deceitful tactics used by dss yet no one seems to care.We have not spoken to our kids since early august and haven’t seen them since july all because of things that happened to our kids AFTER dss removed them from our homes.The way I feel America was built on revolution and I think it’s time as a society we stand up and revolt against these corrupt dss workers that are stealing our babies, apparently with immunity from the court system.If a stranger came into our homes trying to take our babies the average parent would kill them and personally I’m to the point that dss are the strangers trying to steal our babies.If we stand together as a whole I promise there are more people being walked on by dss then there are social workers.There seems to be no defense against these people and our political leader’s seems to be backing them up.So if we can’t turn to them for help against their own corrupt agencies then why should we be voting them into office? These people have to be stopped BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!!!! I would lay down and die for my babies even against the “almighty” dss.
