When I look at this world and see the criminal elements that not only exist in it, but who are, in fact,

protected by our own governments, who either conceal facts or simply look past the crimes of these perpetrators, I have to ponder why it is that I find myself on the list of criminals in our society. It seems to me that we have much more visible, much worse criminal elements to concern ourselves with, whose crimes (which are real) far surpass the severity of what my crime was reported to be. The local, state, and federal governments continually protect their own, while going out of their way to prosecute the weak, the poor, the ones whose crimes do not even compare to their own. You see people like Dick Cheney, who has started up, operated, and served as CEO of corporations whose business is war. His actions are a direct result in the deaths of thousands of Americans, as well as many thousands of other people in countries other than our own. Yet he walks free, no punishment even considered for him. He is but one example. The mass number of Wall Street thieves who literally stole the savings of thousands of Americans is another. One or two were imprisoned, probably because they offended someone in their own ranks. The rest have been totally ignored by prosecutors.

My crime? I spanked my child. Why? Precisely because I don’t want my child to eventually become another Wall Street thief or a Dick Cheney. I do believe in the lost art of discipline, including spanking, so long as it is done in a corrective manner, and not in an abusive manner. In my case, a vindictive tenant accused me of abuse (to a state that was willing to listen) even though the facts were completely falsified. As a poor person in this country, however, I immediately am an evil offender, and in a child abuse accusation particularly, because this type of case gives the state an added opportunity to make money. This book covers that, as well as how the states go about setting up what you might call

legalized kidnapping rings.

What the state of Michigan did not plan on, however, is that my wife Janet and I might fight back. We did, and we are not through yet. You see, the undeniable truth is that I

love my children and will not stand by idly while anyone attempts to take them away from me, be it the state or anyone else. My wife shares my views.

If, indeed, I were a true child abuser or molester, as the state of Michigan attempted to establish, it would have been a justified action. My step daughter, Caitlyn would indeed have been rescued. But if my

intent were really to hurt her, I would not bother with corrective spanking. I would, instead, simply turn her over to Dick Cheney and let him take her on a hunting trip. He could then shoot her in the face, and the government would protect him. Moreover, he would probably find it quite sporting, as he doesn’t care much about the members of poor families anyway.

The system of justice in this country is a cruel joke on the American people. The cruelty extends from local governments right on up to the federal government, exemplified in the case of Dick Cheney. Perhaps I should describe the whole thing as a true

crime, as opposed to a cruel joke, because surely the atrocities committed by public officials (in the pretense of performing public services) far exceeds the severity of crimes committed by the general populous, most of whom spend years in prison for their less severe offenses. This is what we call justice.

With that, we come to the

point of this book. It is my intent, in divulging my own experiences, to expose the state of Michigan for the atrocities they allowed to be played out in my case, and to refer readers to many other cases, like my own, where Child Protective Services, allegedly set up to protect children, are instead hurting the children, by allowing the states to set up and operate child kidnapping rings all across this great country, with the purpose of making money.

—Robert Coleman


Imagine a scene where police officers from a number of departments block off the entrances to a hotel and begin a raid on one of the rooms on a Sunday at three o’clock in the morning. Bystanders at the scene would probably suspect it was a drug raid, or perhaps something even more sinister. Would it surprise those bystanders to find out it was merely a child custody raid, conducted by overzealous officials to remove two small children from the custody of their parents?

Imagine the agony and pain of the parents when they find out later in the process that their children have been abused by the people the state then turned them over to. All under the pretense of protecting them from their abusive parents.

Then consider what in fact the state said constituted this so-called child abuse. A spanking! Because that is why this raid actually happened in 2008. This was not a case of us, as parents, beating our children, or sexually abusing them, not even a case of belt spanking as the state accused us of, but could never offer undeniable proof. They instead produced two very unreliable witnesses, who had grievances with us as their former landlords. One was a mentally challenged individual, the other his wife, and a spurned lover. Both of these people had severe personal problems of their own, yet the state was willing to use their false accusations to bring this case against us. Why would a state do this? For money! It goes on all the time!

Is it right to spank your child? Some argue against doing that under any circumstances, and it is the opinion of many that because a lot of people support that argument, we have the rise in crime we do have over the past few decades, and our children are growing up with no respect for any authority. But ever since the advent of the "Thou shalt not touch thy child" concept, this rise has continued. Many people across America support the other theory which says that a spanking now and then, for disciplinary purposes, done modestly, without intent to harm the child, is indeed a good thing because it teaches right from wrong. I happen to support this latter theory, which is why I found myself on the wrong side of the state.

Whichever side of this argument you agree with, I think that most of us can agree that children should be loved and protected from real harm. But when you remove a child from a family, where there is love, even if they do believe in spankings, you do much more harm to the children than what spankings could ever do. You cannot make a comparison. If matters are so serious in a home that a child should be taken away, then I agree it should be done. But in that event, the harm should also suffice to bring criminal charges against the parents. But it doesn’t work that way under the disguise of child protection involving Child Protective Services, simply another government bureaucracy that is not needed by the people. If you make it a criminal matter, as it should be, you need only your local police and the courts. Then let the adoption agencies fend for the children, because in the event of criminal conviction, a child really should have another home. But we don’t need agencies seeking to make money draining our national budget while falsifying the need of protection for the sake of money! And that’s just what we have under CPS. As a result, kids and parents who are not criminals suffer emotional scars that can never be mended.

For many who feel that critics of CPS are few and far between and that something like this only occurs to parents who, indeed, cross the line of abuse, let me express how easy it is for something like this to happen to you, as it did to me. Put simply, if you ever spank your child, you could

be subject to the same type of events my wife and I experienced. In some cases, parents win their children back, as we were able to do. In other cases, they never see them again until they turn eighteen, at which time the state boots them out of foster care programs to become homeless on the streets. Why? Because the states at that point, no longer get federal dollars for them! All that care and concern the state professes, suddenly vanishes!

This book goes into all of that and more. In my view, and the view of thousands of other parents who have gone through the agony of dealing with CPS, the states should be held accountable for this wrongful kidnapping of their children. Some parents fight back, as we did, and the states retaliate strongly when you do. But the need to fight back is so important, that we never let it stop us, and that is what all parents in this country must do to put a stop to the government supported kidnapping rings existing under our current legal system, a system run amock, and headed by Child Protective Services (CPS).

In my view, any state that takes custody of any person’s child, should be required to justify their actions publicly and should have to answer each of the following two questions with a firm yes answer before they are given the authority to do so:

(1) Is the removal of the child to be placed in foster care really needed and in the best interest of the child?

(2) Is the state willing and prepared to be a subject of legal lawsuits in the event their decisions is proven wrong?

If they cannot firmly say yes to each of those questions, they have no basis for disrupting the lives of any family in this country.
