Human Trafficking on Long Island, NY

Human Trafficking on Long Island, NY
May 17, 2007

Human trafficking has become so rampant on Long Island that three years ago the US Justice Department set up a task force to focus on the problem.

The Long Island Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force is one of 42 such federally funded groups around the country, said Andrea Bertone, director of, a project of the Academy for Educational Development in Washington, D.C. which focuses on anti-trafficking measures.

The Long Island group was born in the fall of 2004, just months after the arrests of a couple on Long Island in what was then considered one of the largest human-trafficking cases in the country. The task force includes agents from Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Nassau Police.

Mariluz Zavala and her husband, Jose Ibanez, later pleaded guilty to smuggling 69 fellow Peruvian immigrants and enslaving them in Amityville, Brentwood and Coram. Both are in prison; Zavala was given 15 years, even longer than prosecutors asked for.

The victims said Zavala and her husband held them as virtual slaves. They had to hand over their paychecks in return for meager rations. The task force is a federally funded program that includes federal agencies, state and local law enforcement, and community groups such as Catholic Charities, which works with the victims.

"It's a priority with the Department of Justice to combat this," said Robert Nardoza, a spokesman in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District, which includes Long Island and Queens. Long Island's high immigrant population makes it vulnerable to human trafficking, some experts said. "In just about any place in the U.S. with low-wage immigrant workers there is a chance that you are going to have trafficking," said Juhu Thukral, director of the Sex Workers Project, a program of the Urban Justice Center in Manhattan that helps immigrants who are trafficked for prostitution.

Cheap labor is one of the biggest aspects of human trafficking, she said, and many cases involve domestic workers. In some ways the forced domestic work is more dangerous, Thukral said. "They [the employers] don't respect you," she said. "That leaves you open for abuses."

Texas DFPS, Texas CPS Child Protective Services; Joanna (caseworker) removal of and continued incarceration of 2 yr old baby from home

Texas DFPS, Texas CPS Child Protective Services; Joanna (caseworker) removal of and continued incarceration of 2 yr old baby from home WITHOUT JUST CAUSE! Odessa Texas


Our "case" began in Ector County; Odessa, Texas. This state agency apparently has not much regard for county lines, as our 2 yr old grandson has been transferred out of Ector County to his second foster "home", no less than 50 miles from Odessa.

The circumstances which invoked a CPS "visit" into our lives may differ greatly from yours; however, unfounded reasoning, false claims, and unjust cause to continue to keep our children from us and their loving homes and families is as real to ALL of us collectively as it is to each of us individually.

To be suddenly forbidden to take care of your child or children is indescribable. The feeling in your heart surpasses description. Noone on Earth has the capability to care for our children as we can. We are raising them with love. We are teaching them, guiding them, feeding them, playing with them, caring for them, encouraging them and disciplining them With LOVE!

When THEY hurt, WE hurt! We know when they are happy, We know when they are ill, we know when they are apprehensive, we know when they are actually scared.
When they ARE frightened or anxious, we hold them, reassure them, envelope them within the warmth of our arms and our love to restore their feelings of comfort, safety and security.

The love we have for our precious children is our conscious guide in our raising of them. It ensures our childs safety, his emotional, mental and physical well-being, it ensures that they are treated with fairness and loving kindness.
Our hearts are filled with Love for our children, and to knowingly or purposefully cause harm or distress to our children is unfathomable.


I have no qualms about an agency that steps in on the behalf of a helpless child, to ensure that a child's safety, health and care are being held in regard. I rather consider myself an advocate of such an agency.

HOWEVER, once the family has been thoroughly scrutinized, every last possible stone turned over; (I am NOT using sarcasm here, just speaking from experience.) once the facts are laid out and investigated and reviewed; when there is no evidence of abuse, neglect or ill supervision; When it is sent to this supervisor, that supervisor, visited and revisited; still not one sign of abuse or neglect can be identified,







The empty, quiet house can render itself absolutely unbearable to the Mothers and Fathers guilty of nothing but loving and caring for their children. For innocent parents to have their GOD GIVEN RIGHT to HAVE AND LOVE,RAISE, PROVIDE and CARE FOR their child UNJUSTLY YANKED FROM THEM like they were crazed criminals, or worse yet, monsters who abuse, neglect, or endanger their beloved baby's lives is a heart gripping, mind boggling, gut wrenching experience!

CPS has and continues to overstep the boundries of it's intended use! Concentrate on aiding those who are legitimately in need of help, even crying and dying in the shadows- INSTEAD of relentlessly attacking those where no cause is found! The fact that "abuse or neglect" cannot be found within a family brought to your attention DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE FAILED.
What it means is that , By the Grace of GOD, a family has managed to develop and maintain decency and a sense of moral code, in spite of today's society!

Not every family is "hiding dark secrets" of abuse or injustices.Some of us are just "good families"! EVEN when put under the microscopic eye of public scrutiny, are "JUST GOOD FAMILIES"!!

Granted, DFPS does rescue children from horrible situations, and in doing so- are certainly saving lives; allowing children the opportunity to grow up in "normal" conditions, and even to find loving families anxious to give a needy child a home and family to call their own.

THAT is the vision I used to have of Tx Dept. of Child Protectiive services; or DFPS. Unfortunately, there is a dark, flip side to this agency! Instead of closing a case, and feeling a sense of gladness that the "would be" child victim of familial abuse or neglect is NOT aa victim afterall, but a cherished member of a loving family; and wishing the family well once it HAS established that there is NO abuse or neglect; as is in our case, and other cases that you are reading about here; It is a most unfortunate, disturbing, and unsettling fact that some CPS caseworkers seem intent on making the reunification of the Family as difficult as possible for people who have in fact been victims of tragic circumstance or simply falsley accused of abusing their children.

In the handbook of the TX Deppt of Family and Child Protective Services, it states reunification of family as one of it's main priorities. Apparently, and sadly enough- increasingly so; that is not always the case.

For those who are at a loss as of what to do in the event that your children are taken from their families and homes WITHOUT JUST CAUSE,

Please be advised of the following:
IF YOU HAVE A CASE RELATED COMPLAINT CONCERNING A DECISION BY THE TX. DFPS...You can contact the DFPS OFFICE OF CONSUMER AFFAIRS .They will research case actions to ensure that DFPS policy and procedure were followed and make recommendations.

Best of luck to any and all innocent parents and families who face a fight with DFPS resulting from false or erroneous charges of abuse or neglect.

Keep thinking postively, stay strong and keep standing and fighting for your rights and for the rights and well-being of your children.

It may be "The State" against One,

Righteousness must prevail, and we must not let them "win" just because they "carry a bigger stick"!!

Our baby was stolen from us on Feb. 19, 2007,
the day his 2 month old baby brother passed away in his sleep. We understood the temporary removal of the 2 yr old sibling to be "standard" procedure, pending investigation of the "death of an infant".
* Toxicology tests run on both children.

** Results: NEGATIVE for intoxicants or drugs of any kind in either child.

6 weeks after baby's passing away~
***Autopsy Report: infant's Death reported to be a result of NATURAL CAUSES.
**** CAUSE OF DEATH: Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

Loss of a baby is heartbreaking at the most minimal descript.

Courtdates rescheduled, appointed lawyer fails to notify and advise parent.

I drive 330 miles to accompany my daughter to court, after we sit in the courthouse for over an hour with no contact by her appointed lawyer... we learn of rescheduled date ONLY when WE call HIM from the courthouse...
He "forgot" to call her and tell her....

I was unable to attend the new date for the hearing, missing out on the opportunity to be heard by the Judge.

I Feel like this was a move by CPS caseworker to sabatoge me and not allow the Judge to hear my stance on this situation.

Having spoken with her on several occasions, she is aware of my stand and the valildity of "my argument" regarding bringing my grandson (our baby) home, back into our family and our home.
I BELIEVE THAT WHAT STARTED as an agency created to protect the welfare of children has given in to the LURE AND PROMISE OF MONEY , thereby transforming itself from a" Protective Agency" into a "For Profit" Business.

I firmly believe that the DOLLAR BILL has won out over the LIVES OF OUR CHILDREN, and they have become PAWNS in a sick struggle to gain another STATE BUCK!

I Love my family and refuse to stand idle while DFPS plays Monopoly with our lives and the tender life of my beautiful, loving grandson.I WILL gain audience with a Family Court Judge, this case WILL be closed and we will be a 'complete" family again!

COMPLETE that is~ to mourn together, at long last, as a family joined by love and Our FAITH IN GOD, the loss of our dearly departed, and eternally loved, forever missed Baby Brother; Cherished Son, Beloved Grandbaby Boy.

The next hearing is scheduled for August of '07.

Unable to give in to "submission" just because "they" say so, I am taking my case to a more "noticeable" level ; I won't settle for playing "phone tag" with a caseworker who is mostly unresponsive and is obviously insensitive to the concerns my daughter and I have for my grandchild's welfare and well being.

"Child Protective Services" is not acting with my child's best interest in mind. That much is obvious.

I stand now in the best interest of my beloved baby, to defend for him- the rights for which he cannot defend himself, to stand strong and fight for my rights as a loving parent, and I stand for all those who are free of guilt and are truly innocent of the charges that have their families carelessly, needlessly and so painfully torn apart.

this is my prayer for all of us~~~


I am willing to join forces with anyone interested in exposing CPS and publically "calling them out"
to answer for themselves.
I am here for anyone who needs me.
Any strength I have is yours to draw on.
I will keep this site posted on my progress.

Good luck to all who struggle with CPS today, and good luck to those that will follow.
( Father, Please Bless and Keep our Heavenly Baby Safe and Warm in Your Perfect Love. In Jesus' Name I Pray. Amen)
I welcome response to my post @
With GOD as my Witness and Jesus as my Co-Pilot, I am taking on the State of Texas with everything I've got!!

Tucson Police Dept, CPS & Public Defender Amy, Ed, Darlene at CPS

Tucson Police Dept, CPS & Public Defender Amy, Ed, Darlene at CPS, Det Huser & Officer Azuelo of Tucson Police & Sean the Public Defender forceful lying by Tucson Police & CPS, treating child with neglect by police, PD calling me and daughter liar Tucson, Arizona

On 2/16/11 my daughter was arrested for something she did not d. Tucson Police would not even accept her side of the story. Only because she has Bi-Polar & PTSD, there were no female Officers present and a male searched her.

They kept my grandson 2 years old standing out in the rain and let him Urinate all over himself and threatened mom that unless she admitted to the crime they would have CPS come get him.

I picked him up when they arrested him and brought him home. Police notified CPS of the incident. On 2/17/11 My daughter was released on her & when we got home Amy and Amanda from CPS was here, we have dealt with Amy who was the Case Manager on 2 other cases involving other families.

Amy was already finding Amber guilty of the crime, and wrote up a Safety plan for the boy to stay in the home with her and mat grandparents because she said Amber was a present danger to her son, and had unstable mental health and violent behaviors. This plan expired 2/23/11.

They are still coming to our home harassing us, even though Amber drew up a Special Power of Attorney, giving me Legal Guardianship over him for 6 mos and to speak in her stead, when she gets upset. CPS stated it was no good and they can continue to come here as long as they want.

On 2/26/ Amber and I went to see her Public Defender, because on 2/22/11 he called her and wanted her to plead guilty to at least one of the charges and because she said no he said she is hostile she walked out of his office today because he called her a liar.

He told me that I am selling her down the river and I'm the one who will be putting her in prison because I will not let her lie and take the plea. He then kicked me out of his office. I am a Serviced Connected Veteran, I have no reason to lie and we have documentation to back all this up.

Not only that The supposed Victim is 5'11, 300 lbs. and Amber is 5'4, 130-140 lbs. there was no blood anywhere in her car except 2 small bloodstains on her steering wheel and the dust in the car had not been disturbed as he said they struggled.

The 2 police reports are conflicting and do not match, She is single and raising her son with our help, and all these agencies before even talking to her have already dubbed her guilty her Public Defender even told her not to file attempted sexual assault charges against the victim.

Even though that is why she was defending herself in the first place, the PD said no one would believe her because that is the excuse all women use to get out of taking responsibility for what they have done. Can any one please help us, we are desperate the PD even told us today we are stupid for even going to the media or trying to get help from out side sources.

Adopted Twins Tortured Doused with Acid, Little Girl Dead - Florida CPS History of Abuse

Updates: See 2 Response Videos. Feb 17, 2011. Home Where Abused Twins Lived A House of Horrors, A Guarded Fortress. What went on in the house was a "family secret'' that was never to be discussed, a surviving adoptive children + couple's biological granddaughter told investigators.
Carmen Barahona worked several years for one of S Florida's largest medical practices - PEDIATRIC ASSOCIATES

Court-Appointed Guardian Ad Litem Tried To Stop Twins' Adoption; GAL Grew Gravely Concerned About Welfare of Children Found Covered in Chemicals

CPS Records

Florida Judge Outraged at DCF's Handling of Abuse in Barahona case. A Miami-Dade family court judge lashed out at state DCF investigator after learning that dep't officials failed to immediately respond to hints from an 11YO boy that two of his adopted siblings were being abused by their parents.
At a hearing Wednesday, a DCF investigator who went out to Carmen + Jorge Barahona's western Miami-Dade County home twice since Feb 10 told Judge Cindy Lederman that the couple's autistic son Jorge may have tried to tell her that something was wrong with 10YO twins Victor + Nubia. The boy's mother dismissed him as being "low-functioning" + told him to wait in the computer room, a DCF official told Judge Lederman at court.
"Wouldn't that make you suspicious?" asked Lederman.
The investigator responded that one of her conversations with the boy took place very late on a Friday evening.
"So we don't do investigations on weekends? Is that what you are telling me?" the judge said.
DCF secretary David Wilkins has asked for a full investigation into how the case was handled.
Just a few days after DCF's visit, Victor was found drenched in hazardous chemicals inside his father's pick-up truck on I-95. Jorge Barahona was found on the ground outside the vehicle. In the bed of the truck was Nubia's body, placed in a bag by her father.
Lederman ordered Carmen Barahona to stay away from Jorge + Jennifer, the 2 other adopted children now living in foster care. "Anyone who knew anything about what was going on with these children will not get near them," Judge Lederman said. "I assume that DCF is taking the quality of this investigation very seriously."
An attorney representing the twins' biological aunt + uncle in Houston was also at the hearing, and told the judge the couple was willing to adopt Victor. Attorney Steve Grossbard said he was involved in the twins' adoption proceedings in 2004, and recalls there being some CONCERNS WITH THE BARAHONAS.

The adopted Miami-Dade County girl was painfully skinny + her hair was falling out. But when investigators asked about her appearance, they were told she had been born with a serious hormonal condition, not that she was being neglected. By the time they figured out that both were true, it was too late. 10YO Nubia was dead, covered in chemical burns and hidden in a plastic garbage bag in a truck along Interstate 95 in Palm Beach County. Her twin brother, Victor, was near death in the same truck, also covered with burns. "Remember that these people have been deceiving the system for quite a long time," David Wilkins, secretary of Florida DCF said of Jorge + Carmen Barahona.

Stranded in an old red pickup by the side of the road, the 10 YO boy was dripping in acid, badly burned + writhing with seizures. There was so much of it that it soaked the seats and carpet of the truck, filling the air with poisonous fumes. Beside him slumped his adoptive father, unconscious and unable to explain what he was doing w the injured boy on the shoulder of I-95. Hours later they found a corpse wrapped in a plain black garbage bag tucked among tubs of chemicals. The body was "extremely deteriorated" from acid.

My Grandchild Was Kidnaped

It is more then one person,
Are YOU the ACCUSED? Click here to respond!
This is what Title IV funds by the Federal Govt. has done to the American Family and Social Security dollars is what is paying for it.
My grandson was taken illegally over 2 years ago, to no avail I have been trying to fight for justice. It all stared with an over zealous DHS worker (AnTiffany McDaniel-Fears) who had a personal vendetta against me. The first time she tried to take him she brought her supervisor (Louella Brown) that was on May 2, 2008) at the Holy Family. Emma called upset I found out that she had threatened this before, and that she was on her way to supposedly get a court order.I immediately went and got Emma and Evan and brought them home with me. Note:Evan was born on April 25,2008 the first time she sent the police to my house was also May 2, 2008 at 10:30 p.m. The police officer (Joshua Pershica) told her that “there was no legal, valid reason to pick up this child”. She became enraged and very rude. She told Officer Pershica “I sent you out there to pick up that baby now I want that baby picked up now”. He then reinteratted “Ma’am I told you there is no legal, valid reason to pick
up this child”. She then told him, “Tell her (me) that I want to do home inspection tomorrow at 8:00 a.m”. He told me “if she is not here by 8:30 a.m. call her and remind her she sounded pretty groggy”. I replied yes sir, I could heard her, thank you. He later told me “Be careful sooner or later she is going to find a rookie cop, or a crooked cop, that is going to give her what she wants”. I then told him thank you and have a nice night, sir. She was late the next day and so I called her like Officer Pershica had told me to do. She then
told me that she never told Officer Pershica that she wanted to come over this morning. I then informed her that I heard her tell him that over the phone. She then said that she would be at the house at 9:00a.m. She continued to be rude when she got here and then threatened me when I told her that she needed to obey the
law. She then told me she was the law and that she would destroy me if I got in her way. On June 18,2010 she used the powers of her office to come into my home and steal my grandchild out of my daughter’s arms while she was feeding him. They chased her through the house and ripped him out of her arms. (He has now been gone for 766 days, or 2 years 1 month and 5 days). At the time that this happened the worker had 2 active warrants for her arrest for writing hot checks. I later found out that she didn’t have a warrant or a court order which makes the pickup illegal. When we went to court they told my daughter to take a drug test and she agreed she knew she was clean. They said she tested positive for marijuana so as soon as we left I took her to S.O.S. to get retested. (S.O.S. is the recognized drug testing facility for the Oklahoma County Court system). I was able to prove that they doctored the drug test to make her look like she was doing drugs when she wasn’t. I tried to give Judge Larry Shaw a copy of the other drug test taken the same day at S.O.S. but he refused to let us use it. I continued to try and get help from other resources and so far have been unsuccessful. I took copies of the warrants for the workers arrest to the Governor and several others but all they did was make
them disappear. The worker became enraged with what I was doing so she told Judge Larry Shaw that I threatened her, 5 ½ hours later she decided to file a police report. Why she waited I don’t know, there were several county sheriff’s officers who could have arrested me on sight. However I would have insisted that they check the tapes from all the cameras that could have verified that I was never even close enough to say anything to her. She saw me through a window while I was waiting for an elevator and that was it we never spoke. I tried to explain Judge Larry Shaw what was really going on but he told me that he didn’t care. I was then told that I could not help my daughter in court anymore and that if I came back on the property I would be arrested. That statement was amended later to say that I was not even allowed to even drive down the street or come within 500 feet of the curb, of the property that the Juvenile Center sits on. That also means that I was not allowed to go to any the businesses across the street. I was later charged with a crime I did not commit and arrested. I bonded out and the worker (AnTiffany) became more enraged and told the (ADA Reagan Vincent)
to have me re-arrested and this time make sure to hold me. I was rearrested and held in jail without the option of bond for 2 weeks. I was forced out of my job of 9 years with a court reporting firm by being told that I could either fight for my rights, and the rights of my family or I could keep my job but I couldn’t have both. Later my ex boss Steve Meador had an ex parte conversation with Judge Don Easter to rule against me in court and it was witnessed by Becky Quinton who is now deceased. Before I met (AnTiffany) I had never been in any kind of legal trouble, I even have a 35 year perfect driving record. To this date I have been arrested a total of 3 times because of this woman. My boss also told me that she told him that she had been a case worker for 20 years even though she was only 32 at the time. She was fired from the Attorney Generals office in
2007 because of her rude and violent behavior which also proves that she couldn’t have worked for DHS for 20 years. She didn’t even get hired on at DHS until 2007. Since all this happened I have continued to collect more evidence and talk to more people trying to get help. I spent 18 months going to court 2 and 3 times a month trying to get a trial for the bogus charges against me. I was continually pressured to plead guilty to a crime I did not commit and the answer was always the same “no I want a jury trial”. I was continuing to be stalked and harassed by the worker and her friends. They were parking in front of my house and sitting in their
car, being followed from work etc. In February of 2009 my 19 year old daughter was told in Judge Shaw’s courtroom that she was no longer allowed to have any contact with me in any form mail, phone, etc. I told my daughter not to worry I would make sure that they could not get her for disobeying an order so I moved out of my house. On June 22, 2009 I filed a Sworn Affidavit with the Oklahoma County Court. In August of 2009 I was arrested for the third time and given another court date. On February 23, 2010 I was found not guilty. The DA insisted on continuing to prosecute me with the same bogus evidence that they already admitted in court on January 21, 2010 did not exist. I then told my Public Defender that I would have to file charges for malicious prosecution. I was told that everybody knew I was innocent but that they couldn’t dismiss the charges because it would cause an interagency rift. (I do have a recording of this conversation) I then told him well
then I will see you in court, and then I will proceed with filing charges after that. 6 weeks later I got a phone call telling me that as of July 1, 2010 the charges against me have been dismissed. Now since they could not get me, even though my life has been destroyed they decided to go after my daughter. On March 17, 2010
my daughter and my grandson were abused by DHS worker Yolanda Sherfield. I found out from her lawyer of the event and that they were taking my grandson to the hospital because of the abuse he suffered at the hands of the worker and his father. His father is a convicted felon and a drug dealer and has already tried to kill this
child once. My daughter, until she met these people, has also never had any legal trouble and maintained a job while finishing highschool. My daughter’s lawyer is also a witness to the abuse that took place that day because he was there. (There is a recording of this event also) While she was at the hospital with her son the
worker called the police and told them that my daughter abused her. We also called to file police report with the Midwest City police department where the abuse occurred. In June 2010 I gave permission for my daughter and her fiancé to move in and take over the house it had been vacant for over a year. Later when we went to
court we asked for a copy of both reports. They gave us a copy of the one that was filed by the worker but didn’t have the one filed by my daughter. We asked where it went and we were told it had never been filed, so we asked to re-file and we were told no. The next time we went to court Judge Spears did not care what had happened to my daughter and did not care about the tape recording of the abuse that was made that day. The Judge told her she was guilty and told her to leave, as she walked out the door the judge told the police to
arrest her. At this time she was 9 months pregnant and was forced to the ground by the police. She screamed when they hurt her and so they charged her with disturbing the peace and resisting arrest. I asked the worker how she could lie in court like that but she didn’t care. I was also threatened when I was asking them to please be careful of the baby even if they didn’t care about my daughter. We managed to get her out of jail before she had the baby. On July 29,2010 she gave birth to a little girl. On August 5, 2010 DHS called
Emma to let her know that they knew about her baby that she had just given birth to. They said they wanted to come by and do a home inspection on Monday August 9, 2010 and Emma agreed. On August 6, 2010 they showed up with the police to pick up the baby but Emma was not there. On August 7, 2010 they returned with the police to pick up the baby and again Emma was not there. This was all told to me by my neighbors that DHS talked to asking them where my daughter was. My neighbors later informed me that they saw Emma and her fiancé loading up their car and it looked like they were moving out. I later went to the house to check it out and sure enough they were gone. I spent several hours there cleaning the floors etc. hoping I would maybe see them come by but they never did. Since all of this has occurred I now know that they again know where I am staying since I moved out of my house in Feb. 2009. They have been coming by and parking in front of the house and will sit there for 45 minutes to an hour and take notes. They make it real obvious that they are watching me but I just let them waste their time. I know this because at night I like to sit out on the front porch to get some fresh air. I do not leave the house anymore without someone being with me. I refuse to go anywhere by myself from now on, and I insist on having a witness with me 24 hours a day 7 days a week. With all I have and am still going through I am truly afraid to be alone

David Tyska needs to look at the truth about our court case and what the court told him he needs to do for the sake of himself and all his children instead of just blaming everyone else on the internet. He always claims he has court documents but never actually shows any because all the court documents are legitimate. The child was not placed in danger but allowed to move to a better place to grow up and has a future now, and he's very happy.
I will not explain the details of the case here, however I will state that if David, the one who claims the court judges are uncaring really did care about his son he would stop posting stupid things that son can find and it would hurt that boy since he knows they are all not true. Dave, your issues are your own and it was your actions that caused the situation to be what it is so why don't you stop trying to hurt your son just so you can show these dumb blogs to people and act like a martyr, just because you typed it doesn't make it the truth.

Hon. David Freundlich
Suffolk County Family Court
400 Carleton Avenue
Central Islip, NY 11722
(631) 853-4318

Judge David Freundlich has aided Judge Andrew Tarantino Jr in abusing my three children. Judge Freundlich needs to learn how to read! My court paperwork says that my case shall remain in New York! As my attorney Maryellen Mc Quaid stated in court and is also stated my court paperwork! And he refuses to accept my Court paper work because he stated I need to go to my son home state of Tennessee. My son home state is New York not Tennessee! This Judge never reviewed any of the abuse that Judge Andrew Tarantino Jr has done to my children. They put me into Diabetic shock and aloud my ex wife Mariane Lynda Jensen to skip the State and I have not seen my son since! My other two children have not seen their brother David Tyska since these two Judges’ broke my civil rights and the rights of my children to see one another. David Freundlich is a discrase to the court system and he truly like’s to abuse children! Please tell us of the abuse these two judges’ have done to your families. The court keeps refusing my paperwork because there is so much corruption in my case that they won’t allow it back into court because people will wind up in Jail!

Suffolk County New York CPS Negligence

Recorded conversation with Suffolk County CPS worker.

Unknown to me, for Over a year, my Grandaughter was left to sleep in a windowless room in a cellar which was against New York State Law. CPS Of Suffolk County both inspected this sleeping arrangement & deemed it safe. When I became aware of this issue I notified not only CPS of this but the Law Guardian, Zuckerman as well & was IGNORED. I then called in a complaint to New York City Department Of Buildings who not only inspected the premises located in Queens but issued a VACATE ORDER for the cellar my 3 year old Grand Daughter was sleeping in. Believe it or not, my Grand Daughter still resides with this same IDIOT who now has her sleeping in a Foyer (the main entry to the home). I'm trying to gain temporary custody of my Grand Daughter. CPS, the Law Guardian & the presiding Judge claim to have my Grand Daughter's "best interest" in mind. Well lets see............

I own a home in Commack (a BLUE RIBBON school district) My husband earns a very hansome living working for a Medical Company as a "Nuclear Imaging Engineer".

The N-Docket Custodian who resides in Queens does NOT own a home (NOT a good school district or neighborhood by any stretch of the imagination)

I'm a stay at home Mother

The N-Docket Custodian has my Grand daughter in day care 5 days a week.

This is a Queens County ACS worker, who inspected the premises where my Grand Daughter was to stay. She deemed it safe & acceptable eventhough it was in direct violation of New York State Fire Code Laws & later deemed HAZZARDOUS by New York City Department Of Buildings!!! This is an AUTROCITY!!!

This is a recording of Judge David Freundlich's prized Law Guardian. She was "supposed" to be looking after my Grand Daughter's safety/best interests. She came to my house to "inspect" 3 times (all 3 visits were audio/video recorded) but she probably NEVER inspected wher my Grand Daughter was living & "if" she did, WHY WAS MY GRAND DAUGHTER MALTREATED BY BEING KEPT IN A DANGEROUS, DANK CELLAR FOR WELL OVER A YEAR!!!!!! In my oppinion she is a child stealing/selling dishonest, UNSCRUPULOUS, Evil Woman!!!

This is a recording of a phone call to NYC Department Of Buildings. Pay special attention to the part which is about 3 and a half minutes into the recording. The Supervisor clearly states that bedrooms in cellars are NOT ALLOWED anywhere in New York State & clearly states the situation was HAZZARDOUS!!!

When Criminals Have Rights Where the Poor Have None

When convicted criminals are free to be with their children but the poor are not, there is something very wrong in the world. Yet that is the news from Europe this week, thanks to the “human rights” treaties being pushed by the United Nations – treaties like the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) which we are fighting to keep from America’s shores.

According to several news sources in the United Kingdom, convicted burglar Wayne Bishop last week won an appeal of his 8-month sentence so that he could be with his five children. Citing the “right to family life” provided for in Article 8 of the Human Rights Act, which is the U.K.’s legislation to fulfill the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR), Bishop’s attorney argued – and the courts agreed – that he should be released and returned to his children.

Given Bishop’s role as a single parent and his status as a first-time offender, his suspended sentence is not unreasonable, and we rejoice in the reunification of his family. But the ruling sets a dangerous precedent when added to a much less reasonable decision that followed.

Also last week, also stemming from Article 8 based on the ECHR, another prisoner has been allowed to father a baby with his wife through artificial insemination. Even though he is incarcerated where intimate relations are not allowed, the government is paying the tab for the work-around to impregnate his wife based on the prisoner’s “right to family life.”

As more than one have commented in the British press, what will happen once the baby is born and his “right to family life” is cited as cause to release him from prison altogether as in Bishop’s case?

Meanwhile an article out of Bulgaria highlighting the admirable work of a child care charity there mentions the presence of “so-called ‘social orphans’ whose families have lost parental rights, most often due to poverty” (emphasis added). Like the UK, Bulgaria is a party to both the ECHR and the CRC. As a result, parents can lose their rights “due to poverty,” since the legal standard of “the best interest of the child” has replaced any standard requiring proof of harm or wrong-doing on the part of the parents.

While many contend that their inability to defend themselves against an over-zealous child protection system leads some parents to lose their rights due to poverty here in America, it is universally clear that such a practice is a violation of our Constitution.

Such would not be the case were the CRC to be ratified here, however. According to the Supreme Court’s interpretation of Article VI of the Constitution (see Reid v. Covert, 354 U.S. 1 (1957)), any ratified treaty on any area not expressly reserved in the Constitution becomes “the supreme law of the land,” binding judges in every state to uphold its guidelines.

If the CRC were ratified, perhaps we too could join “the civilized nations of Europe,” where criminals can have children as a means to get out of jail, while the innocent have their children taken away for the crime of being poor.

Or, we could continue to uphold liberty and justice by preserving parental rights in the text of the Constitution and by preventing the CRC from ever making its way into our laws.

On August 16th, Schaefer delivered, via cyber space, her speech to the Nordic Committee for Human Rights (NCHR) in Gothenburg, Sweden on the protection of Family Rights in Nordic countries. Nancy spoke on "The Unlimited Power of Child Protective Services" (CPS). She told her audience "children are seized unnecessarily from their families due to federal aid created in 1974 entitled "The Adoption and Safe Families Act." It offers financial incentives to the States that increase adoption numbers. To receive the 'adoption incentives' or 'bonuses', local CPS must have more children. They must have merchandise that sells. It is lack of accountability and it is a growing criminal / political phenomenon spreading around the globe."

Retired FBI Agent on CPS Child Trafficking in U.S., Gunderson

Excerpt: Ted Gunderson Speech Congressional Hearing on Child Protection 3/13/04, San Bernardino Calif Town Hall Forum w Congressman Joe Baca on Children Protective Services Reform. "Honorable Lawmakers, Guardians of the United States Constitution and the Federal Treasury, I am a licensed private investigator with more than 54 years experience which includes more than 27 years as a special agent with the FBI. . . As a licensed private investigator...Specifically, in regards to Child Protective Services in some areas and some states, I have been told by a reliable source, that a planeload of children from CPS was flown out of Denver, Colorado on November 6, 1997 to Paris, France. Later a second plane of children also under the care of CPS was flown from Los Angeles to Europe. I have also developed information through credible and reliable sources that in the past, children have been taken from Foster Homes, orphanages, and Boys Town Nebraska, and flown by private jets from Sioux City Iowa to Washington D.C. for sex orgies with politicians.
I have interviewed witnesses who were active in an international child-kidnapping ring, who advised me that, of the thousands of children who disappear every year, many are auctioned off, at various locations throughout the country. This kidnapping ring... One of my sources advised that he has attended six such auctions, with six to thirty six children being auctioned off. These locations are identified as fifty miles outside Las Vegas, Nevada, Toronto Canada, Houston Texas, an unidentified location in Michigan and a barn outside Lincoln Nebraska.
This source informed me that the children range in age from 2-21, both boys and girls. They are usually placed on a stage or platform, in their underwear with a number attached to a string around their necks. The perpetrators bid on the children by number. The location outside Las Vegas was at a small airport. Some of the children were auctioned off to foreigners wearing turbans on their heads. The children were placed in private planes from which they took off. Other children were placed in campers. They were drugged so that if police stopped them the kidnappers could claim their child was sleeping. This same source advised me that when he was ten years old he was used as decoy in public places to attract other children his age to that area, where the adults would grab the kids and flee.
In the early 1990s, following the circulation of "The Franklin Cover-up" for almost a year, the Yorkshire Television of England sent a topnotch investigatory team to produce a documentary on the Franklin Cover Up. They conducted a national investigation for 10 months, interviewing, filming, and documenting the Franklin story, finding new witnesses, and uncovering new evidence. Their documentary, "Conspiracy of Silence" was scheduled to be aired nationwide on the Discovery Channel on May 3, 1994 at 10 PM. When certain members of congress learned that Conspiracy of Silence was to be aired on national TV, the cable industry was threatened with restrictive legislation, the rights to the documentary were purchased by unknown parties and all copies were ordered destroyed. It never aired. I visited the LA TIMES LIBRARY, reviewed the TV log for May 3, 1994 noted that Conspiracy of Silence was listed to be aired on that date at 10 PM. I had a contact on the East Coast review the TV log for the Philadelphia Enquirer and Conspiracy of Silence was also listed in their TV section at 10 PM, May 3, 1994.
I developed information from a credible source in a major city in Southwest U.S. that there is collusion between judges, attorneys and underworld criminals. Children in the system, are adopted, four thousand dollars is given to the people who adopt, and the childrens names are changed and each child is re-adopted many times, with four thousand dollars going to each adoption every time. The Federal Government Adoption Bonus is given to these judges, attorneys and underworld criminals it is split among the three groups of child traffickers.
As an outgrowth of my involvement in the Franklin Cover Up Case from Omaha, I learned that a covert CIA operation known as the Finders based in Washington D.C. which was actively involved in kidnapping and international trafficking of children since the early 1960s. . . ." more on link

CPS Child Trafficking Coverups + Eugenics A Tradition in PA

Even years ago, Foster Children were used as Sex Slaves. Pennsylvania has a history of child trafficking, of providing wealthy and connected families access to children to use under the guise of child welfare. PA is also home to Eugenics programs as well as those to cover up abuse (Univ of Penn origins). Ironically, or maybe not, the Dred Scott case decision which legalized slavery was handed down by the supreme court while holding court in Bedford, PA.

Eugenics: The "Science" of a Death-cult Elite.
Eugenics was born as a scientific curiosity in the Victorian age. In 1857 the Supreme Court handed down the Dred Scott decision while it held session at Bedford Springs in Bedford, Pennsylvania. This decision occurred where Dred Scott and his family walked into the Supreme Court as free people and walked out as slaves. But many in government understood the political powers inherent in making slaves and this subconscious power has not changed. Only its methods have changed. Transferring authority from the parent to the state produces profound subservience and slavery into the entire culture. This process has only transformed from overt to covert slave-making. Millions of American families are now experiencing the very same fate as the Scotts, as "family courts" and bureaucratic slave-makers are committing the very same atrocities in eugenics "kangaroo courts." These powers of the slave-makers are often seen as "occult," but are fully explained as subconscious terror programming known for centuries as effective "crowd control" devices. Americans eventually get fed-up with the slave-making of elitist Nazis. Many attribute this pro-slavery Dred Scott decision to be the true onset of the American Civil War.

Kids for Cash Judicial Corruption, JLC Update - Conspiracy of Silence Continues in Pennsylvania

Jan 26, 2011 Update, Pa Kids for Cash Scandal: 2 Years After Judges Arrested by Feds in $3 Million Scheme, still no reform to protect the children from further abuses of corruption. Juvenile Law Center Series on Reform in the Wake of Luzerne County Kids for Cash Scandal. On Jan 25th, 2009, two Luzerne County, Pennsylvania judges - including Mark Ciavarella, the county's juvenile court judge - were indicted on federal charges of accepting $2.9 million in kickbacks in exchange for using the juvenile court process to send thousands of youth to private, for-profit juvenile detention centers, often for very minor violations.
Over half of the children who appeared before Ciavarella did not have an attorney; 50-60% of these unrepresented children were placed outside their homes.
JLC since obtained justice for the thousands of youth involved in the scandal by successfully petitioning the PA Supreme Court to vacate and clear their records. But what changes have been made in the juvenile justice system in the past 2 years to prevent these injustices from occurring and to ensure that a scandal like this never happens again? Not many.
In JLC's "Reform in the Wake of Luzerne" series, the structural issues in the juvenile justice system that allowed this scandal to occur and the reforms - like guaranteeing access to counsel - that still need to be put in place to protect youth and to prevent such scandals from happening again are examined.

Judicial Conduct Board Complaints. Aug 2010. The ineffectiveness of the state Judicial Conduct Board, an arm of the Supreme Court that handles complaints against judges, is one of the lingering issues from the juvenile court scandal. The state noncriminal investigation into the court system, following the federal criminal indictments of former Judges Conahan + Ciavarella, revealed that the JCB received 40 complaints against the two former judges - a number far higher than the statewide average for common pleas judges. The board did not take disciplinary action as a result of any of those complaints. 9895

Feb 13, 2011. In the Luzerne scandal trial, a lawyer and his staffer told about cramming $100s and $50s into a box and cursing.
When Jill Moran went to work for Robert Powell's law firm, she never thought her career as an attorney would come down to this dismaying moment: watching in shock as Powell, cursing and muttering, stuffed wads of cash into a FedEx box that he wanted her to hand-deliver to the president judge of Luzerne County.
"These greedy [expletives] won't let me go," Powell said, his hands full of $100 and $50 bills. "Take this to them, and hopefully it will be over."

Abused Foster Children Missing, No Report by Adoptive Parents Collected $175K - Colorado, Texas

March 2011. Colorado, Texas. Abuse, Torture Allegations in Adopted Foster Children Missing Over 10 Years. Adopted Parents Collected $175,000 on Missing Tots + Not Report Missing. Bryants Arrested on Fraud for Collecting Money For Boys Missing Over 10 Years; No Missing Child Report was ever filed. Authorities in CO have opened an investigation into disappearance of 2 foster children, one of whom appears to have been physically abused. Edward Dylan Bryant who would now be 18YO disappeared in 2001. Austin Bryant, who would be 15, went missing around 2003.
The adoptive parents never reported them missing + falsified records to collect $175,000 adoption subsidies.
The boy's adopted father, Edward Bryant, 58, + mother, Linda, 54, who are separated, were arrested in Texas + currently in jail in Colorado Springs. They are held on $1 million bail. Each face theft + forgery charges.
They've not been charged in the disappearances. The father told authorities Edward ran away in 2001 + Austin in 2003, right before the family moved to Texas. He blamed his wife for any money received since their disappearance and denied knowledge of receiving money for the children, but admitted that he signed documentation stating that the children were in his care in order to continue to receive funds from Colorado DHS.
His wife, Linda, admitted some criminal culpability for not reporting the missing children. She acknowledged she intentionally covered up the fact they were missing to make it impossible for those in position to make a rescue, and offered to take responsibility so her husband could keep the 5 children they still have. [?!!]
The police investigation started shortly after Bryan Pennington, a foster child who knew Austin growing up, reported Austin missing on Jan 22, 2011, after a conversation with another person who knew Austin.
James Bryant, the boys' adopted brother who was interviewed at Fort Campbell, KY, agreed to discuss situation w El Paso Sheriff's office. James told detectives that there has been significant abuse at home. He said Austin was spanked, restrained by being rolled "like a burrito", handcuffed, and denied food 2-3 times a week as a form of punishment. Austin got so hungry, James said, he would eat out of the garbage can. He was also left in the garage days at a time and forced to run up and down the driveway for hours.
The last time he saw Austin alive was in 2003. He said his mother asked him for help to find a friend to pose as Austin for an upcoming DHS visit, according to affidavit.
Pennington told investigators that Austin told him that his parents used a taser on him and showed him welts all over his torso, according to the affidavit.
The affidavit has little information regarding Edward. James told authorities he doesn't know anything about his adopted brother. He was told Edward was sent to ARIZONA to care for an ailing relative. State adoption records are sealed

AFFIDAVIT REVEALS ABUSE OF MISSING FOSTER CHILD. TX. While 2 young boys disappeared nearly a decade ago, no one spoke up until now. Arrest affidavit for the adoptive parents of Austin Eugene Bryant + Edward Dylan Bryant paints a disturbing picture of the discipline that incl use of a Taser + being locked in a trunk.
The adoptive father admitted he and his wife "concocted stories" to cover up the missing boys. When Gainesville police contacted his wife, she said the boys were "doing fine and living with her." She later changed her story to say they "ran away as early as 2003," but she never made a report. She also admitted to "falsified documents" because she came "to rely on the money" Colorado offered families who adopt.
2 other adopted children who lived with the Bryants recalled the torture Austin allegedly endured. The 14-page arrest affidavit from Colorado said the couple regularly abused Austin when he lived with them outside Colorado Springs. The accusations say Austin was handcuffed, Tased and often locked in a trunk. He was denied food, leading him to eat from the garbage.

Edward Dylan + Austin Eugene Bryant were special needs kids. They were paid through El Paso County DHS for the boys even though there is no record of them since 2003. Bryants received 121 monthly payments for Edward totaling $107,916. For Austin, 75 monthly payments of $66,890. Tipline (719) 520-7209
