So, a friend of mine just lost custody of his kids. No worries, he will get them back in a few months cause mom is going to prison! She was caught(with her bf) cooking meth in the house. Kids were present, and meth, needles, and all those chemicals were all over the house. The judged refused to look at the drug test from her criminial case, which were all positive!!
A mother from my daughters school just got her kids back. They were taken, this last time, cause they were left in her truck while she was in the casino for at least 3 hours. She was so drunk that she passd out in the cop car while being questioned. She had intended to drive home.
WTF is wrong with our family courts? Anyone else think that these judges must be smoking some crack? How can they expect people to report abuse and then do nothing??
Oklahoma DHS is in legal trouble, it is being sued over the abuse in the system. I know there is not a whole lot we can do, but I'd like to hear some ideas!
I personally would like to see them allow teachers to testify to the judge. As it stands, we are required to report, but no one listens to what we have to say! We face all the back lash, though. That's crap!
I'd also like to see jury trials. If 12 normal everyday people think it's abuse, it probably is!
What do all of you think?
