How Long a Rap Sheet Does Arlington DHS Require Before They Give a Parent Legal and Physical Custody of a Child?

1 Oct

An interesting case we have come across where a mother has raised her children and then ran into some financial hardships and made a mistake of pleading guilty to a misdemeanor of leaving one child unattended for a very short period of time in a double parked car.   She wanted to return to her home country to get help with housing and family support (because Arlington failed to give it, just like they typically do in other cases where they want to take away the kids).   Instead of helping this mother (who was given a clean bill of health psychologically, and who clearly cared about her kids), Arlington DHS sought out the unbeknownst birth father in another state.

What is interesting about this father is that he has a very long criminal rap sheet, including recent open cases.   Nevertheless, Arlington Department of Human Services (DHS) bent over backwards to take the kid away from the mother and give it to this “father” even though he did not even know he was the father of any of these kids!   He also had a record of being behind in child support for another child he had with another woman.

So, what does Arlington DHS’s Wilson, Brothers, and County Attorneys McCandless and Grane do?   They chose to ignore these obvious shortcomings of this unbeknownst father and strongly recommend to the court that the absentee unbehnownst father (whose only connection to the child was his DNA) be given full legal and physical custody of a child he never knew, and, thus, obviously had no emotional attachment to — while depriving any legal or physical custody to the birth mother who brought them up from birth on her own!

Boy, who is getting paid off for this one!   This case is further evidence that Arlington Virginia DHS discriminates against mothers, and doesn’t give a damn about the children and their families.   Furthermore, they pick and choose when to consider factors (such as criminal records) as “negative,” and when to ignore them.    We don’t fault the father here…it is Arlington DHS who is clearly to blame for this royal screwup.  Arlington DHS and County attorney’s office needs to clear out the personnel involved in this case because, in our opinion, they are acting like they are either on the take or seriously mentally off.   [As far as we know, Arlington DHS and County Attorneys who represent them do not have to be evaluated for their psychological health -- but clearly they should.]

Arlington County DHS Continuing to Violate Civil Rights of Families

28 Sep

There Arlington Department of Human Services goes again….A new civil rights case was recently filed by Lucienne Moolenaar against the Arlington County Department of Human Services, Jason McCandless, Karen Grane, Tammy Freytag, Aaron Whitehead, Devanshi Patel,  Arlington PD Officer A. Hagg, B. Madgucci, Bruce Benson, and Magistrate Jason Brayton-Lewis,   According to the detailed complaint, after finding herself unemployed in 2012, Ms. Moolenaar found herself in need of housing and other services — all of which Arlington failed to provide.   Seeking to correct the situation, Ms. Mooenaari sought to relocate her family in the Virgin Islands, where her mother lived and she could get support from her family.

Instead of supporting Ms. Moolenaar’s efforts, Arlington CPS began “harrassing” her with complaints — based on hearsay.   After forced entry into Moolenaar ‘s home, “refusing to leave, physically detaining her in her own apartment, intimidating and illegally obtaining coerced information, physically stalking Moolenaari,” Arlington County CPS, and Jason McCandless Assistant County Attorney crafted a second set of allegations of inadequate supervision/neglect to further “their corrupt and deceptive plan of criminal charges and foster care for Complainant’s children.”     They then had a the JDR Court rubber stamp a removal order and placed her children in foster care.

Arlington DHS, with the same employees, followed the same playbook when they illegally and fraudulently removed Ashlie Mae O’Brien and other children in Arlington from their families.

The US Attorney General must bring charges against Arlington DHS to stop their systematic destruction of poor and minority families to benefit developers in Arlington.   This is corruption of the worst form.  Arlington DHS is using the “child protection laws” to engage in economic and racial cleansing that is repugnant to the US Constitution and the Virginia Constitution — all at wasted taxpayer expense.

Department of Human Services Employees Need to Be Given Psychologicals

9 Sep

The former acting director of cyber security for the United States Department of Health and Human Services was convicted this week on child pornography charges upon completion of a four-day federal trial in Nebraska.

The US Department of Justice announced that Timothy DeFoggi, 56 of Germantown Maryland, was convicted by a federal jury in District of Nebraska of engaging in a child exploitation enterprise, conspiracy to advertise and distribute child pornography and accessing a computer with intent to view child pornography in connection with his membership in a child pornography site, according to a press release published by the DOJ.

Federal prosecutors successfully argued that DeFoggi was a registered member of a website only accessible using the Tor anonymity service and there he “exchanged private messages with other members where he expressed an interest in the violent rape and murder of children” between March and December of 2012. CBS News reported that DeFoggi was the acting director of the Dept. of Health and Human Services when he was detained in May 2013 during a federal crackdown aimed at child pornography sites that existed on the so-called dark web, and a HHS official has since confirmed that he stayed with the office until only seven months ago.

According to Wired, one of the sites frequented by DeFoggi was called PedoBook and was seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in late 2012 due to a security lapse suffered by its administrator, Aaron McGrath of Nebraska.

Given the bizarre behavior of Arlington DHS employees, Arlington County attorneys who deal with children, and many Guardian Ad Litems who fail to protect children and seem to specialize in isolating children from their families, it is time that psychologicals be given to these employees.
