Having judges would make no difference; judicial corruption abounds. (PA Kids for Cash scandal perfect example). These monies come from the corruption of banksters and Federal Reserve policies to enslave your children. Stranded in the Foster Care System, April 2010. WXZY7 Detroit. Action news has uncovered cases of foster kids who are loved and cared for by family members, but are still taken away - a heart-wrenching saga of children stranded in the system. The Martins were Jakes foster parents when their niece couldnt care for the little boy. Action News was there the gut-wrenching day little Jake was taken from the only family he has ever known - that was likely last time they would see him. Renee Neals step grandson Immanuel has been in her care since he was born. Now, hes gone. Neal will likely never see him again. Richard McNeil had hoped to adopt his great grandsons. But the state took them away. Records show the state admits all these children were loved and well cared for, but in each case the state decided the kids would be better off with someone else. The man who makes those decisions is Bill Johnson. He heads the Michigan Childrens Institute. By law, he could not speak about specific cases when we interviewed him last year after the state took Jake "those obviously are people who you lived with, who cared for you and we are going to care for you here..Its sad, youre going to miss them, and the child will adjust." But some believe its too much power for just <b>...</b>

This story depicts a father and child seperated by Parental Alienation. They were very close. There was never any accusations of abuse, but because her mother convinced her to lie to the court and tell them she doesn't want to see her father anymore, that is all it took! No one would listen to the father's argument. The whole system is corrupt! Wayne County Michigan disregards the laws and makes their own. Family courts in America are tearing apart families left and right. You can't fight the system. We are no longer a Democracy, but a Dictatorship! Fathers are considered horrible monsters, and Mothers must be seen as "saints". These alienators are brainwashing their children and no one sees this as "child abuse".

This is part 1 of a 1/2 hour program that I edited back in November of 2009. What started with a phone call to the Problem Solvers soon exploded into a story that garnered international media coverage. You first met 87-year-old Marabel Chanin in August of 2008; she was the last one -- desperate and alone -- in her section of Robinwood Street, arguably Detroit's worst nook. She died there alone soon-after, and for months lay bagged in the Wayne County Morgue. There she was joined with dozens of other bodies stalled at death's door -- waiting to be claimed and buried. The response that followed was unmatched -- money was raised for funerals, families discovered long lost loved ones at the morgue and now there's resolution in a solution. FOX 2's Brad Edwards got that first voice mail from Marabel, befriended her, lost, found and now discovers her back-story. Join us for a never before seen look at life and death in the 'D' and the change exacted by Marabel's cry.
