OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma Department of Human Services (DHS) has confirmed that a man arrested for cocaine possession over Christmas weekend is a child welfare specialist with the agency.
According to Oklahoma City Police, officers found Terry Pursell parked at a Braum's on South May Avenue. Officers said Pursell tried to drive away, but they were able to pull him over.
During the arrest, Pursell told police he worked for the DHS and was worried about losing his job.
Pursell is currently in jail on $3,500 bond. FULL STORY and Comments
For all those nay-sayers who have been denying that CPS is utterly evil, how about the front page of Oklahoma's #1 newspaper on Christmas Day?
Does that give you even a hint on how utterly corrupt and malfeasant CPS is?
And it's not just an Oklahoma problem. It's a nation-wide problem. Same problem in Canada, England, Australia- EVERY westernized country in the world
But who really cares? It's For the ChildrenTM
Or maybe not so much- Best interest of the child- A new "Civil Right"

Also note that this piece of pompous garbage GETS HIS CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.

He will also have a Real Lawyer putting up an Aggressive Defense.
DHS Documents Left Behind in Home

OKLAHOMA CITY -- A DHS worker left hundreds of confidential documents behind
after she was evicted from
her rental home in Guthrie.
The documents obtained by NEWS 9 contained names, dates of birth and Social Security numbers. They also contained the names and addresses of children involved in sexual and physical abuse.
Normally, this type of paperwork is heavily guarded but it was discovered when a DHS social worker moved and left it all behind.
Sandy Chanel was shocked when she discovered the condition of her rental home, from cat feces on the floor to food left in the kitchen. She says her house is trashed.
"I would not live like this," Chanel said.
Yet, it was a box in the basement that caused her the most concern.
"I saw a box of paperwork, which I thought was trash, then when I started looking though it, I thought, ‘This is not good'," Chanel said.
What she found was page after page of confidential DHS paperwork; some dating back five years.
The information was left behind by Dana Derruisseaux, a DHS social worker. Derruisseaux moved into the Guthrie home last October. Chanel says she was evicted for failing to pay her rent.
NEWS 9 delivered the documents back to DHS.
"There is no excuse for you to have to deliver to the state Capitol a box full of documents that has personal and private information; there's just no excuse," DHS Spokesperson George Johnson said. "We won't put up with it."
Johnson commented on the condition of the home as well.
"They're our employees when they're at work," Johnson said. "We don't go to their homes, we don't inspect their homes. We don't look at the kinds of living conditions they live in." These are the people who are gods over other people's lives and take their kids for this sort of housekeeping- or even less
Dana Derruisseaux (the DHS "worker") was recently promoted and is supposed to begin her new job in the next few weeks.
DHS says the appropriate actions are being taken immediately but can't comment on what exactly that means.
NEWS 9 tried contacting the DHS worker for her side of the story, but she did not return the call.
Finds Too Many Children Removed From Homes

Oklahoma City - An independent audit* of the Department of Human Services says Oklahoma children are removed from their homes almost twice as much as the national average. (As if CPS kidnapping isn't a national pandemic.)
It adds that the number of children in the custody of state child welfare workers places a strain on the state system as well as children and their families.
The $400,000 audit by Hornby Zeller Associates was released Wednesday by House Speaker Chris Benge and other lawmakers.
The audit makes 25 recommendations to improve the system. Among them are making sure that children are removed from their homes only if there is an imminent safety threat and that the agency is involved with local law enforcement officials in all removals of children. (So does that mean a CRIME would have to have occurred? Or is he just there to listen to the lying parasite CPS witch's fairy tales?
Or is the LEO (since he
takes an actual OATH to "uphold, support and defend the Constitution
of the United States") supposed to make the skank CPS
nazi observe the
parents and THE KIDS' Constitutional
PROCESS, and REASONABLE
See State Question 745 that would fix a bunch of these malfeasance problems.

Memorable quote in this story:
"DHS spokesman George Johnson doesn't dispute improvements need to be made. But, he says Oklahoma still has one of the better systems in the country..
By the same token, Lucifer has one of the better HELLS. This guy isn't even a good liar.
D.G. vs. Henry
Filed February 13,2008
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OKLAHOMA
This case is brought by the Named Plaintiffs, nine children in foster care, on behalf of themselves and the more than 10,000 children of Oklahoma who have been removed from their homes by the State. These foster children, who are or will be in the legal custody of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services ("DHS"), bring this action because DHS, under the supervision of Defendants, who directly and indirectly control and are responsible for the administration of Oklahoma's foster care system, have failed in their basic and fundamental duty to provide for the safety and care of these Oklahoma citizens.

Union joins effort to make case against troubled agency a class action
BY JAY F. MARKS
Published: February 13, 2009
A state employees union — including more than 300 child welfare workers — is endorsing a class-action lawsuit against the state Department of Human Services.
The Oklahoma Public Employees Association, with DHS workers accounting for at least a quarter of the union’s 10,000 members, claims such lawsuits are necessary to fix problems with public service programs in Oklahoma.
An unnamed child welfare worker is quoted in court paperwork.
"We need this lawsuit, and the kids need to win it. If that doesn’t happen, nothing will ever change,” the worker said. "We know what to do, and we’ve told the administration what it needs to do — administration just won’t do it.”
It is an unexpected but welcome ally for the New York-based Children’s Rights organization that is suing on behalf of more than 10,000 children in state custody. FULL STORY
"There are more than half a million children and youth in the U.S. foster care system today. Studies reveal that children are 11 times more likely to be abused in state care than they are in their own homes, and 7 times more likely to die as a result of abuse in the foster care system."-- John Walsh Show April 16, 2003
The only person who could STAND working for state "child welfare" is someone with no conscience, morals, or ethics. A brawler, communist, useful idiot fits best. Being Schizophrenic is a real plus.
