You all will recall the Ciavarella case where Judge Coghlin and Civarella were convicted and sued in the “kids for cash” scandal in Pennsylvania.
Now here is another case you can use. Note how the depravity of justice occurred and how these judges had no concept of the US constitution, the state constitution or any meaningful concepts of law.
I don’t recall the Illinois bar exam testing on civil rights. I guess that should have been a clue for me.
This was a case similar to Kids for Cash where DCFS was taking away American Indian kids by the boat load. There was no meaningful due process in any of the courtrooms. The law required a hearing in 48 hours. The typical hearing lasted 5 minutes or less and the parents were either never informed or if the tracked down the kids and pressured for information, they appeared and were told not to talk, and they could not present any witnesses in their defense.
Here are some highlights (low lights) from what the SD “justice” system was doing at the time:
“The Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment protects the
fundamental right of parents to make decisions concerning the care, custody and
control of their children.” Troxel, 530 U. S. at 66. Defendants agree the basic
elements of due process are required at 48-hour hearings. (Docket 129 at p. 1).
Plaintiffs claim the defendants have violated the Due Process Clause since
January 1, 2010, in five different areas:
1. Defendants have failed to give parents adequate notice of the
claims against them, the issues to be decided, and the State’s
burden of proof;
2. Defendants have denied parents the opportunity to present
evidence in their defense;
3. Defendants have denied parents the opportunity to confront and
cross-examine adverse witnesses;
4. Defendants have failed to provide indigent parents with the
opportunity to be represented by appointed counsel; and
5. Defendants have removed Indian children from their homes
without basing their removal orders on evidence adduced in the
hearing, and then subsequently issued written findings that bore
no resemblance to the facts presented at the hearing.
(Docket 108 at pp. 7 -8).
“It is well settled that state law does not define the parameters of due
process for the purposes of the Fourteenth Amendment.” Brown v. Daniels, 290
F. App’x 467, 471 (3d Cir. 2008) (referencing Cleveland Board of Education v.
Loudermill, 470 U. S. 532, 541 (1985)
Does this sound like Guardianship? Does this sound like Guardianship on the 18th floor of the Daley center? Does this sound like taking kids for money like they take our elders and disabled persons in Chicago for money, money paid to key people like Jerome Larkin at the ARDC and a “team” of corrupt attorneys. You know the names, you know the players. Why doesn’t the FBI do anything. They can track the cash with the push of a button. But we have seniors for cash in Illinois.
Check out any nursing home, even the best. Even the ones you have to “wait” to get an elder in. None of them want to be there. 80% of them are heavily drugged on illegal drugs, chemical restraints and they will never see the light of day. They are fed crap or put on feeding tubes against their will–all of this is illegal.
Go ahead, I challenge anyone to take a survey of folks in nursing homes. All want to go home or live with a beloved relative. Where are their human rights, their civil rights? How did they magically disappear because they could be drugged, immobilized and tortured? Who is watching out for them?
Answer: No one. and No one gives a flying F*** (excuse the language) especially not the ARDC, OPG and OSG that has a system down of how to loot estates, take bribes and get away with it. There is NO investigation and no one cares.
Screw them all!
