“In this report, I am focusing on the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS). However, I believe Child Protective Services nationwide has become corrupt and that the entire system is broken almost beyond repair. I am convinced parents and families should be warned of the dangers.”
Ted Gunderson, FBI (ret), was interviewed on 9/8/2007 regarding his experience confronting the corruption in the CIA, FBI and the Federal, State, and Local governments:
USA – The Supreme Court’s Parental Rights Doctrine
Our nation has consistently maintained that parents possess a fundamental right to raise their children as they see fit.

If the parents sign (most do because their court-appointed attorneys are advising it) there will be no trial – no opportunity for them to protest their innocence or defend themselves. Without a trial there’s never going to be a time when the CPS social worker has to prove the county’s case.
So what should CPS victim-parents do to counteract the problem of having a court-appointed attorney who won’t aggressively defend them?

If the attorney refuses to at least attempt to provide an adequate defense you’ll have proof that you requested one, and can sue in civil court for legal malpractice. Let’s hope your attorney problem never gets to that point.
I believe that keeping silent when an injustice is taking place is condoning it.
