, you make an excellent case for the corruption of this system. You state that you "Do cps in Houston Texas", rather than saying "I legally represent clients". You say you just finished representing a woman who "Pleaded" guilty, rather than "plead guilty". And you say parents should not go in "agressive (aggressive) , mean spirited and so apprassive (abrasive) ", because that is just asking CPS to take your kids.
The first thing about this post that bothers me, is that the state spares no expense on legal counsel to represent CPS, but pays pennies on the dollar for representation they are required to provide to parents in these cases, and that representation is exemplified by this Angelina, who's post is riddled with grammar and spelling errors. This woman, similar to the CPS workers I have dealt with, exhibit a severe lack of education, yet are making decisions that affect the very safety and lives of the youth entrusted to their care. This woman is a lawyer, who appears to have the education of an 8th grader, and if you are an innocent parent who happens not to have the $10,000.00 required retainer for a private attorney, this is the representation that will be provided to you.
Further, she says you should not be abrasive, because that is just asking to have them take your kids. Since when has aggressively objecting to the threat of wrongful removal of your children become a crime in itself, that justifies their removal by CPS. Pissing off a CPS worker with your abrasive personality, does not qualify as imminent danger to the child, which is the only reason a child should be removed from their home.
But she is correct about that point. If you oppose them and do not submit to their whim, they will retaliate and show you just how powerful they are, by removing your child based on any false charge they care to make up, and the judge WILL grant any order they request, based on hearsay and nothing more. And good luck trying to get your court appointed attorney to even examine, let alone present, your side of the story in the courtroom.
