"Yes there are." Paulette replied. "But too many of them are too scared to fight the system because it is such a big entity. We are just one person, or a group of mothers and fathers who are out here saying that our children are being abused."

"On September 18, 2006, I was hospitalized at San Francisco General Hospital, with a broken hip, and a fractured pelvis, from trying to prevent the mother of my children, from driving drunk. The Child Protective Services section manager, Tracy Burris, told me that after I got out of the hospital, I could go get my children."

This is how James, a thirty-six year old African descendent man, began telling his unbelievable story of Child Protective Services (C.P.S.) fraud and abuse.

When I think about the true meanings of 'journey' and 'destination', memories of my road to POOR Magazine/POOR News Network often race through my mind. Supporting my family of four, with meager earnings, while living in Cleveland, Ohio. Going from one homeless shelter to another, until my arrival to San Francisco, California in 2004.

"There is nothing more frightening, more scary, more terrifying than someone opening and coming through your door..........unannounced "

Last year the San Francisco Chronicle ran a month long series entitled "Use of Force" in which they chronicled past events of misconduct by the San Francisco Police Department. At the time, my case was still being investigated by the police oversight agency, the Office of Citizens Complaints (O.C.C) so nothing was written regarding my own brutal encounter with S.F.P.D members.

The Governor’s 4 crazy ideas (restricting in-home care workers to the state and/or local minimum wage; family members banned from being in-home care workers for relatives; banning convicted felons from being in-home care workers; physical incapacity is okay, being a hoarder/clutterer isn’t enough for in-home care) have been zapped with a restraining order. Peter E. Sheehan, of The Social Justice Law Project requested the restraining order on behalf of Mark Beckwith and others.
