Land Law and Legal Definition


Land Law and Legal Definition

Sourced from: definitions.uslegal.com

en.wikipedia.org

The ordinary meaning of the word ‘land’ is that of dry superficies of the earth as distinguished from water or air. As a legal term, land means not merely the dry superficies of the earth, but also comprises of all that has material form that man has received or can receive from nature, that is to say, from God. Furthermore, the expansive meaning of the term land means the surface of the earth often distinguished from water. Land legally includes all houses and other buildings standing or built on it. Moreover, land includes that part of the property which is in a direct line between the surface and the centre of the earth, such as mines of metals and fossils.

In other words, land is defined as a real property. Land is also an area of ground with defined boundaries, including minerals or resources below the surface and anything growing on or attached to the surface. Generally, all the buildings erected upon it are land, but there are some exceptions to this general rule. In case if a stranger constructs a building on another’s land, they will be a part of the owner’s land, and will belong to the owner. Some cases have been decided that such an erection, under peculiar circumstances, would be considered as personal property.

Nancy Schaefer & Alex Jones Exposing CPS Alex Jones Show Full 51409 Part XIII

HOLLYWOOD – DECEMBER 17: Senator Nancy Schaefer speaks during the Church of Scientology’s Citizens Commission On Human Rights “?Psychiatry: An Industry of Death” Museum Opening on December 17, 2005 in Hollywood, California. (Photo by Kevin Winter/Getty Images for CoS)

 

Abstract from: thereporter.com 2020/01/12

In 2007, the late Sen. Nancy Schaefer presented a riveting and compelling report to the state of Georgia. “The corrupt business of child protective services” detailed corruption in the state’s Department of Family and Children Services.

Her investigation uncovered many cases of abuse, not only in Georgia’s child protective services, but also in other states across the nation, prompting her to write that nationwide the entire system has become corrupt and broken beyond repair. And that parents and families should be warned of the dangers.

Schaefer discussed the Adoption and Safe Families Act, set in motion first by Walter Mondale and in 1997 by Bill Clinton. The law offered cash bonuses to the states for every child adopted out of foster care with the intent of addressing concerns that many children were remaining in foster care for extended periods, or subjected to multiple placements. Foster care parents who adopted their foster care children were also entitled to a check.

But instead of helping children, the legislation, according to Schaefer, created a profitable empire built on intentionally separating parents from their children. Families mostly affected were poor and imperfect families that were still providing loving homes to their children. Yet they lost their children to the foster care system.

Findings reveal that foster care children are disproportionately children of color — especially black and Native American.

And that parents and families should be warned of the dangers.

The law offered cash bonuses to the states for every child adopted out of foster care with the intent of addressing concerns that many children were remaining in foster care for extended periods, or subjected to multiple placements. Foster care parents who adopted their foster care children were also entitled to a check.

But instead of helping children, the legislation, according to Schaefer, created a profitable empire built on intentionally separating parents from their children. Families mostly affected were poor and imperfect families that were still providing loving homes to their children. Yet they lost their children to the foster care system.

Findings reveal that foster care children are disproportionately children of color — especially black and Native American.

Schaefer acknowledged that some home environments demanded the removal of children from them. However, hundreds of her cases revealed that rarely were decisions based on the needs of the family and child. She observed that the corrupt system could not be trusted.

Schaefer advocated for these children and their families until her death in 2010, ruled a murder-suicide by her husband. However, her colleagues, who were also working on exposing corruption in the government institution, questioned the official findings.

During January, we are observing “National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month.” It is a time to recommit ourselves to doing everything possible to eradicate human trafficking, help those who have been victimized, and protect children who are at risk of being trafficked.

The “Foster Care and Human Trafficking: A state-by-state evaluation” study, released in 2017, reported that victims of sex trafficking come from our nation’s own foster care system. Also, the 2019 State Department’s Trafficking in Persons Report findings noted that the foster care system breeds human trafficking.

In 2018, the Epoch Times reported multiple cases of alleged child sex abuse just in the Contra Costa County foster care system.

One solution implemented to help reverse some of the major damage caused by the Adoption and Safe Families Act is the Family First Prevention Services Act that took effect last Oct. 1.

States must now determine opportunities within the law, keeping at the forefront what is best for the children and their families.

However, in a billion-dollar industry, like human trafficking, the work of holding Child Protective Services accountable and responsible still requires boots on the ground like Sen. Schaefer. She shined the light on cruel injustices against the most vulnerable of our society.

Many of these children are still being abused in foster care. Others have been trafficked and are missing. Yet many of them have not been reported because their foster parents want to continue collecting the check.

Adoption websites post children’s photographs with personal information, opening the door to that child’s next abuser. Parents are fighting for their parental rights while watching their children adopted out from under them.

Schaefer’s closing remarks in her report remains valid in 2020: “Children deserve better.  Families deserve better. It’s time to pull back the curtain and set our children and families free.”

This finding sparked a great media frenzy, with proponents of the ruling arguing that it was a victory for trans rights whilst critics – including JK Rowling — argued that it was a defeat for freedom of expression.  Continue reading →

Application By Consent To Vary FGM Protection Orders To Allow Greater Freedom To Travel


 

Application By Consent To Vary FGM Protection Orders To Allow Greater Freedom To Travel

TowardChange

Oxfordshire County Council v AD & Ors [2019] EWFC B66

Application by consent to vary FGM protection orders to allow greater freedom to travel

Facts
The parents had four children including three girls aged 19 (CD), 17 (ED) and 15 (FD) in December 2019.

The family were from country X but came to the UK in August 2016 for the father’s work. They had been due to return in July 2017 but in March 2017 CD reported to her GP that she feared plans had been made for all three girls to undergo FGM upon their return, at the instigation of their paternal grandmother.

The Local Authority (Oxfordshire County Council) then applied to the Court for FGM protection orders and Emergency Protection Orders, which were granted and the girls were removed from their parents’ care. Care proceedings followed. The girls were then returned to their mother (AD) as there was evidence that they were at no risk while they remained in England, however the parents acknowledged that they would be unable to protect the girls should they return to Country X. The father (BD) then returned to Country X as originally planned in July 2017.  Continue reading → Continue reading

Paedophile Hunters Confronted Sick Pervert At Work On First Day Of New Job

Click here to watch the VIDEO: This is the moment a security guard was confronted by paedophile hunters on his first day at a new job which led to him being arrested and jailed for more than five years today (Wednesday).

Duncan Russell believed he was speaking to a young girl online over 13 days but he was really talking to an adult. He told his “victim” that men did not think that much “except about football, sex and women” before asking her for explicit pictures and asking her to perform sex acts, a judge was told.

And after admitting the sexual offences in court he went on the run for seven months before being caught by police.
