Senate passes bill prompted by Nashua 3-year-old’s death; sponsor sees good chances in NH House
SB 244 - AS AMENDED BY THE SENATE
ANALYSISThis bill clarifies the burden of proof and requires the department of health and human services to seek a motion to enter a home as part of a child abuse or neglect investigation in certain circumstances. The bill also establishes a commission to review child abuse fatalities.
For starter's, why would DCYF need to seek a motion to enter one's home when they already enter people's homes without a Court order or Warrant? People stupid enough to let them in their homes to begin with. Yes, I WAS one of those stupid people 9 1/2 year's ago. I believed they worked for our Government and our Government would never harm us. The joke was on me! They will tell you they have a Court Order, Warrant or both, but when you ask to see either/or, you are refused. My husband in fact asked if they had either. They stated they did. When he asked to see them, they refused. After much research, I found out they had neither, yet they came into my home, with the Police, too afraid to come here alone and dragged my grandchildren out.
I pray the House amend's this Bill before it's passage. The Amendment I'm hoping for, would strike DCYF entering a home as part of an abuse and neglect investigation. I would like to see an Amendment that states the Police have the authority to enter one's home to check on the welfare of children.
I know there are many people out there who do NOT trust their local Police, but I myself, as well as many other's trust the Police before DCYF. DCYF is much worse and most people are aware of that and if they're not, they should be. The Police don't get paid for removing children from their homes. There is NO incentive for them to do so. Most Police don't even like DCYF/CPS any more than the rest of us.
Second, "This bill clarifies the burden of proof ". Does that mean "Hearsay" without proof will no longer be used to steal children? Will DCYF finally have the burden of proving their allegation's, instead of stealing a child under the guise of "Preponderance of Evidence" ? Where a child will no longer be stolen because the parent may or may not have done anything wrong, or abuse could have happened, but no-one know's for sure? How about another add on? That DCYF and the Family Court's can NOT charge a parent with "anticipated
Neglect in the Future"? Does it make any sense to charge someone for something they haven't done? If it did, there wouldn't be enough Prison's to hold all the people that just Might commit a crime some day.
Another problem in NH is parent's whose charges are dropped in Criminal Court, due to proof of innocence, who are never allowed to admit the evidence in Family Court, Never get their children back. So why does a parent with Criminal Felony Child Abuse charges pending, get ALL of her 5 children back before ever even going to Court on the charges? What is wrong with this State?
As for establishing a commission to review child abuse fatalities, an investigation into DCYF practices should definitely be included.
