OVER 1,200 MINNESOTA PARENTS ARE SUING TO SHUT DOWN CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES

By: Carey Wedler June 10, 2018

A group of parents in Minnesota called Stop CPS From Legally Kidnapping Children has filed a request in federal court t“shut down the state’s child protection services, stop serial abuse of families and overturn the unconstitutional laws by which the agency operates,” according to a press release published Tuesday.

The group, led by Dwight Mitchell, a father who says his son was illegally taken from him for 22 months, first filed a civil rights complaint in April, and this week they vocally publicized their call to shut down the child services agency, which they claim engages in systemic lying, withholding information, and fabricating evidence. They are asking the federal court to suspend the state’s agency from enforcing child protection laws, and according to a petition signed by almost 5,000 people, are also demanding changes to the laws themselves.

Back in April, Mitchell said: “Someone reported I spanked my child on his bottom. I was put in jail. My three children were taken away from me,”citing other states that have enacted laws to protect a parent’s “ordinary corporal punishment” rights. Though the practice of spanking is increasingly recognized as harmful to children’s well-being, it is highly questionable as to whether confiscating kids and placing them in foster homes is any better for their mental and emotional health.

Minnesota is not the only state where CPS officers are absolutely both completely out of control, to make sure their quotas get met, and their budgets get enhanced, but there is also a huge amount of abuse and neglect that they do not find, leaving vulnerable children with ghastly consequences, including massive injuries and deaths.
