We recently went through some family issues which caused our parenting skills to come under the county microscope. Falsely! It turns out that anyone can make an allegation about anyone claiming anything against them. Then comes the DCF Investigator to my home and unbeknownst to me they also visit my eldest daughter at school for questioning. So, we are forced to jump through the specified hoops in order to prove our fitness as parents. Final result, they go away!

The entire process, I found highly invasive. To say how pissed off I was would fail to properly convey the myriad of emotions which flooded my senses. Lucky for DCF, they backed the fuck off once they saw the allegations were false and our hoop jumping was minimal. Nontheless, the threat from an agency which loses children and employs drunks and drug addicts in charge of the welfare of children, struck me as disgusting. At one point with the case worker and LEO standing in my living room, the gravity of the situation propelled me into a contained rage. As the case worker spoke to us about the allegations and the case, my "Kill Switch flipped." The LEO was doing the ususal Cop fidgeting of his gear, radio and murdering his gum beyond ID. I knew that the action of taking my children from me would be the motivating reflex. We all have bloody thoughts.

I know some guys don't have kids or family, but what flips your kill switch?

Fucking with my family and friends...and animal cruelty. I watch Animal Cops on Animal Planet from time to time...I swear, I'd flip out my first day on the job and murder someone. They had a colt on there that was starved for 18 months...couldn't even stand up, and it was kept in some super small enclosure for it's whole short pitiful life. How it lived as long as it did, no one can figure. The vet had to put it down, way too far gone to save it. Each time I watch I promise never to watch ever again..it's that infuriating. I don't now how people do that job w/o going back to inflict some justice.

How anyone can knowingly do this stuff to animals is beyond me...but they sure do need a visit from the MacManus brothers.

It is unwise for folks to post about specific scenarios, but I understand how you might be enraged in a situation like that.

Sounds like McCarthy'ism. Neighbor fabricates a story, and tells the local 'authorites.' Next thing you know, the Gestapo CPS is at your door making you prove your worth as a parent.

This is what keeps my sanity in check.

The only thing that jerks my chain harder than a false accusation is that the SOP of the authorities is to assume that it is true & follow through accordingly, even knowing, to a person, that it may not be. For e.g.: in WA State, if a woman charges a man w/ assault, he will automatically be carted away, & the determination will be handled in court. Choose your acqaintences wisely, boys.

I've worked in system, & there is some serious power-tripping & bias in CPS. Many "professionals" in this arena (psych, CPS, DSHS, ) are motivated to work in the field out of personal "issues", & view things through their own distorted lense. They do handle plenty of legitimate cases, but being exposed to the worst element (& having similar personal experiences, in some cases), they are somewhat jaded to the possibility of a false accussation. The fiasco in Wenatchee, WA a few years back pretty much exemplified the cronyism that accompanies the inevitable swarm of "professionals" from various departments & bureaucracies around such cases. They do protect each other. The McMartin daycare scandal was another infamous "moment" for CPS. Just a day on the farm. Only real difference being that they flew just a little too high up into the radar zone. If they'd been less flamboyant in crafting their allegations, most of the McMartin family would still be in prison.

I don't have any children of my own yet but I can imagin going balistics if someone tried to harm them in any way if I did.
For now it would be my wife, parents and nephew (one who likes giant raisins ). Try to harm any of them in any way and the whole Yobo clan will be on top of you.

Good luck on finding out who made the charges. Hopefully you know someone who can find these things out. I went through a similar sittuation involving alleged threats towards my wife. This person made intentionally false statements concerning abuse towards my wife. They treated me like a liar, they treated my wife like she was a liar when she didn't tell them what they wanted to hear. Then continued to harrass my wife after the sittuation was supposed to be cleared up.

Then wouldn't tell me who made the accusations. They said "We can only reveal the source if the allegations are to be found true, and the sittuation were to be elevated." I knew exactly who it was though. This was while in the military, and treated this way by Family Advocacy and Mental Health. Man was I ever pissed. The kids been discharged, and if I ever catch him on the street his ass is mine!
