    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WOWK)- A 21-year-old woman is suing the WV Department of Health and Human Resources for their alleged negligence when she was a child. The lawsuit states that the girl was in Foster Care before being placed with her biological father, who she barely knew. Her lawyer James Barber says he had a history of abuse that should’ve prevented this. Soon after being placed in the home, she was pregnant and told her Stepmother, who told her therapist that the father of the child was her father. The DHHR placed her then with the stepmother, who the lawsuit claims...

    The Contra Costa County Department of Children and Family Services (CFS, or CPS) in California appears to have a problem with the sexual abuse of children. The Epoch Times interviewed whistleblower parents, children, and a mental health professional in the county who say children are being sexually abused within a system that is meant to protect them. In July, a father–son duo, Simon Mendoza Chavez, 64, and Simon Magana Chavez, 31, in the Contra Costa County city of Antioch were arrested on charges of committing multiple crimes during their years-long tenure as foster parents, according to a little-publicized police department...

    As a result of standing firm against the increasingly popular “Drag Queen Story Hour” programs and other supposedly “kid-friendly” drag events in public venues, Elizabeth Johnston, the Activist Mommy, has been repeatedly slandered, doxxed, and even threatened with violence. Now, the most ardent drag-for-kids proponents are taking a new approach: encouraging their followers to call Child Protective Services to report Elizabeth Johnston for child abuse. This is in addition to constant online harassment and even death threats from some individuals.

    Suzy and her husband Peter Saad will face a judge next week who will reportedly terminate their parental rights to their newborn baby, Sofia. The parents reportedly have no criminal record, and have not been charged with child abuse or neglect. They stopped in a hospital in Connecticut while on a trip to Maine because Suzy was experiencing back pain, and the staff there allegedly accused her husband of being a “Muslim terrorist,” even though he is a U.S. citizen of Egyptian heritage, and a Coptic Christian. "In protest of the very obvious violation of our human and civil rights,...

    In this Buzzsaw interview (below), filmmaker Sean Stone interviews Tammi Stefano, the Executive Director of The National Safe Child Coalition (NSCC), and exposes much of the corruption happening within Child Protection Services and Family Courts. This might be one of the few interviews currently available on the Internet that gives this much information on the child sex trafficking business that exists in LA County, and across the nation. Tammi Stefano reveals some very shocking information about the child and human trafficking business currently operating in the United States, which is a huge illegal business that brings in more money than...

    The scene looks like something from a middle-of-the-night drug raid. Guns drawn, police officers in tactical vests surround a beige ranch house in a subdivision. With a single decisive kick, one busts down the door. “Come out with your hands up!” an officer yells, as a flashlight’s blinding beams begin sweeping the room. But police in Chandler, Ariz., weren’t seeking out a trove of illegal narcotics when they showed up at the modest home in the Phoenix suburbs on Feb. 25. Instead, they were searching for a 2-year-old who had come down with a dangerously high fever. The boy’s mother,...

    A pregnant and mother and her 18-month-old baby crossed the border illegally Tuesday and were quickly found by Border Patrol Agents. However, when they found her, she was experiencing abdominal pain and taken to the hospital. Her child could not go with her, so during the time she was in the hospital, agents stepped up. According to Border Patrol, the agents from the Uvalde station took care of the baby, until she was deemed fit for travel and released. “I am proud of the agents and staff who continue to show great compassion during this humanitarian crisis on our southern...

    Chicago taxpayers, prepare for another kick in the teeth. In fact, it might be a good time to grow fond of the toothless grin. Another recent court decision will put taxpayers on the hook for additional city pension debts. Yes, even more than before. A circuit court judge in March struck down a 2014 state law that eased pressure on the pension fund of Chicago Park District retirees. The law had increased Park District employees’ own contributions to the fund, increased their retirement-eligible age, reduced their annual cost-of-living increases and reduced duty disability benefits. But those changes will be rolled...

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Tuesday assured incoming high schoolers that they need not to worry about President Trump ending the “Dreamers” program, saying Chicago Public Schools are a “Trump-free” sanctuary for young illegal immigrants. “To all the Dreamers that are here in this room and in the city of Chicago: You are welcome in the city of Chicago. This is your home. And you have nothing to worry about,” Mr. Emanuel told a group of freshman on the first day of classes at Solorio Academy High School, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. “Chicago, our schools, our neighborhoods, our city, as...

    The Chicago Public Schools will pay 6.39 percent — an extraordinary interest rate by short-term lending standards — to borrow $275 million it needs to make a mandatory payment for retiree pensions before a June 30 deadline. That’s more than four times the interest rate a typical government would pay on the same borrowing deal ... It’s yet another sign of the dire financial condition of the nation’s third-largest public school system, which for months has had a “junk” credit rating from Wall Street financial institutions. CPS officials secured the $275 million on Monday from J.P. Morgan. It’s the final...

Brown said all options are on the table to find the cash needed to stave off an early closing of schools that CPS CEO Forrest Claypool has warned might be needed but that Emanuel has ruled out to...

    A single mother in Buffalo claims she was arrested and her children were unjustly taken from her custody just because she tried to homeschool them.

A week after filing the documents, Child Protective Services called asking why her children were not in school. She explained the situation and told them she could provide the paperwork proving she was homeschooling them. No indication...

    Two leading divorce experts agree that Anthony Weiner’s behavior — sending a sexting partner a lurid crotch shot with his toddler son in the bed and picture with him — is grounds for a city child welfare probe. “I believe ACS will start investigating now,” said attorney Raoul Felder, referring to the Administration for Children’s Services. “He’s doing these things on camera and he brings his child into bed with him,” said the noted divorce lawyer, who handled former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s divorce from second wife Donna Hanover.
