S2 Episode 10 Family Court Fighter-The Energizer Mama

I hate injustice, and I really mean, I hate it. It’s the very reason I became a whistleblower. It was so hard to go through a long legal battle, but what if your kids are the weapon used to retaliate against you? 

For this mama bear…..the gloves came off, and she’s determined not to stop.

Meet my new friend, Registered Nurse, whistleblower and Tough Mama, MaryAnn Petri. MaryAnn has been attacked, jailed, had her license suspended, barred from seeing her kids, and forced to pay unreasonable fees. She’s  been denied due process on more than one occasion…..and after all that….she still keeps going. Check out the full story in her book, 

Dismantling Family Court Corruption: Why Taking the Kids Was Not Enough

Join us because being forced to fight for your kids wellbeing, is definitely #noTeaParty.

This is part of a spotlight on whistleblowers who have tried to take on and change CPS (Child Protection Services Agencies).

The Department of Children and Families  (aka CPS-Child Protective Services) was initially set up to be a resource, guide and protector for children who were at risk for abuse or neglect …..AND their families.

What would you think if you found out in most states, that there is a 20 to 1 ratio of calls/reports to one “real” case needing intervention? Or that these agencies aren’t actually a government department. They are contractors that bill governments/localities/counties for their service…..and they get paid by the number of children/families they serve…especially the longer that family “needs services”. More ‘interventions’=more fed dollars coming in.

According to the National Center for Abused and Neglected Children in Washington D.C. Children are 7 times more likely to be harmed in foster/adoption care than they ever would have been with their own families.

This system has no checks and balances. In this dysfunctional system, there is no proof or evidence required, and the mood,  education and training of intake workers, all play a part in many families being ripped apart, and denied justice and due process. Unfortunately, many of these families are lower income or single parents who have little recourse to fight the corrupt practices of the agency.

The motivation for the county? You guessed it. MONEY. Each child that is “legally kidnapped” into the system equates to a paycheck for multiple lawyers, workers, judges and foster parents. Not only that, but it also secures the Federal cash to keep coming in to that “under-served” area. 

The Civil Rights of too many “good” parents are stripped for no other reason than, what appears, is to make the county able to receive more Fed money. 

Join the fight to abolish this corrupt system, and put it back in the hands of those trained to assess, apply and uphold the law fairly….law enforcement.
