Letter to the Editor: The power of the agency
Words from loved ones; I and others may never hear or read again.
Death is one reason; family disputes and separations are others. The majority of the time these differences can heal to reunite families to be stronger than before. This is what we all hope and pray for.
But there is a another reason. If you can accept this, a section of state services that is so powerful it suffers no consequences for taking these words away from loved ones. Families who have had this agency in their private lives know the power of it. It is an agency filled with allegations recorded on state documents with little or no proof other than statements taken from hearsay or drug addicts. Vengeful, hurtful, deceitful persons. Persons with mental and physical problems. These statements recorded on state documents adjusted by this agency for their benefit. Evaluations from doctors, counselors, social workers, religions mentors all reviewed or not reviewed to accommodate this agencys agenda.
Don't be misled to believe that as a parent or grandparent, brothers, sisters, aunt, uncle or cousin that you have some sort of biological or religious rights of family unity. In this state, this agency has these rights. They have the power to erase, add, dismiss, state documents as useless. They have the rights to deem these same documents as legitimate as long as they benefit the agencies case. Enough said about aunts or cousins.
It is time to fix this. This is a broken agency. In a state that is ranked among some of the best places to raise a family is an agency that can destroy a family with a single stroke of a pen. Don't rely on what you think your rights are. Just know that this agency that suffers no moral or legal consequences has more rights than you'll ever have.
