The breakdown of the family, child abuse and entitlement fraud
I have been working on child protection, child fatality awareness and the breakdown of the family in Eau Claire Wisconsin going on twenty years. I, with the help of a fearless former lawmaker, were able to draft a comprehensive child protection bill here in Wisconsin that became law back in 2005, known as the Stephen Hubbard Bill. This bill would have never become law had we not been able to expose the entitlement fraud in Eau Claire County.
I believe the reason children across Wisconsin have stood at the edge of fatality is due to not only the breakdown of the family, but also counties maximizing revenue flows from family court out comes that trigger federal entitlements incentives and matches. Such as, Social Security Act Title IV-B and Title IV-D.
I also believe there has been a concerted effort by counties in the State of Wisconsin to usurp (rig) child custody outcomes to cultivate on going entitlement funding, that leave/force many children to remain in broken households, where there is a high probability of assault, child neglect, child abuse, child fatality and exposure to the drug epidemic from non-biological significant others.
Let me provide a few facts on why I believe a child's safety becomes compromised in the quest for Federal entitlements and incentive matches for county agencies post family breakdown.
Once a family breakdown has occurred. Many families will reach out for social safety net services. This is the point a county sees a shattering family as Federal dollars signs. In a blink of an eye, county agents will coach a recipient into additional entitlements to secure long term federal entitlement matches and incentives for a county. County agencies will steer families away from reconciliation as well as Wisconsin's 767.24 - presumption of 50 50 placement that would allow parents to be independent from government services. 50 50 placement is the kryptonite to many counties looking to generate funding on the backs of shattering families and broken children.
What I discovered in my effort to create comprehensive child protection legislation and solutions to the breakdown of the family, was a document called the Branch Five Standard Policy on Periods of Physical Placement. This document was knowingly used to rig child custody outcomes to maximize and sustain Federal entitlement matches, incentives and estimates until a child's eighteenth birthday.
Wisconsin's "Standard Policy on Periods of Physical Placement" has been used for two decades to decimate families and create chaos for many children as well as stripping many single parent mom's of equity by establishing an every-other weekend over-the-bench mandate that additionally blocks unimpeachable (safe) biological parents from protecting their children from abuse.
Deprivation of rights? You decide.
Parents come to terms that the marriage is irreconcilable. The parents hire divorce/child custody attorneys. What both parents don't realize is that there is a clear disadvantage for one parent. Attorneys, the courts, child psychologists and guardian ad-litems are all aware of the outcome ahead of time. The stripping of due process without any challenge demonstrates an undeniable Quid Pro Quo and abuse of power precedent.
Here is where I believe that facts become more than a reality for many broken Wisconsin children and families.
Once the custodial parent is awarded physical placement, the system continues to coach and provide scores of public-assistance that trigger long term federal matches and incentives for counties, thus stripping upward mobility and subjecting a primary physical placement recipient to irreversible poverty.
The unimpeachable non-custodial parent receives a child support order that also triggers Federal matches and incentives, as well as rewards individual county child support agents on performance in creating and locking down long-term child support orders. These child support Incentive payments to agents are used in Wisconsin to unfairly punish non-custodial parents (Child Support Bulletin No.: 09-36 Dated 11/11/2009). Wisconsin’s Department of Work Force Development encouraged counties to use DCF-153 to block unimpeachable biological parents trying to protect their children so there is no chance of losing long term matches and incentive payments to the State of Wisconsin.
Ask yourself this question using the example provided above... If a Wisconsin child was removed from an abusive custodial parent and the non-biological significant other (The bad boy boyfriend) due to in-concert child abuse and/or neglect and placed with the unimpeachable loving non-custodial parent, what would happen to potentially eighteen years of Federal funding, incentives, matches, kickbacks, self-dealing, enrichment scams and revenue estimates for counties initially rigged by the Standard Policy on Periods of Physical Placement?
Here’s what would happen…The federal matches and Incentives associated to that family would all disappear in an instant, because unimpeachable loving non-custodial parents historically won’t ask for public assistance and/or child support. These parents most often won’t look to a social safety net, they just want to move on and protect and love their child/children.
The use of the Standard Policy on Periods of Physical Placement is not only unconstitutional, but it is also criminal. Federal case precedent…The People vs Judge, Gerald P. Garson. Judge, P. Garson was convicted for manipulating the outcomes of divorce and custody proceedings in the State Of New York.
Solutions start with law enforcement understanding that whistleblowing isn’t a crime it’s a duty, but under the Color of Law, in-concert retaliation and targeting to cover-up a crime is a crime. Our Wisconsin communities need to realize, the strength of our families is a direct correlation to the strength of our communities.
As we see across the state of Wisconsin, increasingly children are falling victim. As a state we need to have a broader conversation related to the breakdown of the family and crimes against children that I believe stem from the use of the Branch Five Standard Policy on Periods of Physical Placement here in Eau Claire, WI. Additionally, revisiting and updating Wisconsin's Stephen Hubbard Bill (Act 101 2005) would provide unimpeachable biological parents the ability to protect their children from poverty, neglect, abuse, and fatality.
In all my efforts to bring attention to this issue, it seems Wisconsin counties are more interest in protecting payrolls, benefits, incentives, self-dealing and kickback opportunities, than protecting Wisconsin children standing at the edge of fatality and the breakdown of their family.
National media… Investigate my efforts above, you will learn why many mandatory reporters like district attorneys, school superintendents, law enforcement, physicians and others know the circumstance of a child's home environment and the abuse and neglect they are enduring and do as little as possible.
Through It All:
Our family and the above-mentioned lawmaker paid a heavy price for going to Madison Wisconsin to write the Stephen Hubbard child protection bill and exposing years (1998-Present) of in-concert collusion to rig family cases for Federal funding incentives and matches. Our family lost just about everything, as well as our ability to do commerce fluidly in our community due to suspect county evidence-based in-concert tortuous retaliation, intimidation, targeting, retribution by multiple County, City and State agencies against our family, children, and businesses.
Was it all worth it? Absolutely! We accomplished what county, state and federal law enforcement couldn’t and wouldn’t. Getting one of the most comprehensive child protection bills passed revealed that the breakdown of the family has a direct correlation to crimes against children, not only in the State of Wisconsin, but across the nation.
