State Rep Calls For Grand Jury Investigation Into State of Alaska”Kidnappings”

This is one of those stories that is crazy no matter which way it goes. If Rep. Tammy Wilson is using overheated rhetoric such as “legal kidnapping” in describing State of Alaska actions, then she has probably gone way too far. If, however, her allegations are warranted, this is craziness on a whole other scale.

Here is her release today. Judge for yourself:


Wednesday, September 7, 2016, North Pole, Alaska – Representative Tammie Wilson has requested that a Grand Jury conduct an investigation into how the Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) and the Office of Children Services (OCS) are complying with statutory duties.

”OCS has become a protected empire built on taking children and separating families,” Wilson, R-North Pole, said. “This is not to say there are not those children who do need to be removed from horrible situations and need protection. I believe children and parents are caught up in legal kidnapping and ineffective politics.

“I have scores of cases of exhausted families on my desk,” Wilson said. “I cannot turn my back on these suffering, crying and sometimes beaten down individuals. We are mistreating the most vulnerable. No longer is judgment based on what the child needs or who the child wants to be with or what is really best for the whole family, it is some adult or bureaucrat who makes the decision sometimes based only on hearsay.

“This request is made because I have received numerous complaints and inquiries from parents, grandparents, foster parents and health care providers,” Wilson said. “There are significant, systematic problems with how OCS operates which is illustrated by the fact that the number of children in State custody has grown dramatically. Also, there are areas where legal requirements are being ignored, or simply disregarded. These include missing case plans, plans lacking parent signatures, missing and incomplete visitation or contact plans, lack of plan reviews and updated goals and inadequate legal representation. Impoverished individuals appear to be targeted since they make up the overwhelming majority of OCS cases.

“I have witnessed such injustice and harm brought to these families that I am not sure if I even believe reform of the system is possible, in fact, criminals have more rights than parents,” Wilson said. “The system cannot be trusted. It does not serve the people. It obliterates families and children.

“I have respectfully asked the District Attorneys of the State of Alaska to convene a Grand Jury so they can conduct a formal investigation, and, pursuant to its authority, summon and examine witnesses, obtain and examine records and documents, and publish a written investigative report,” Wilson said.

  1. I’m hoping this will get somewhere, our grandson was abducted without justice, after they adopted him out without our knowledge or consent, they said his incurable disease was miraculously cured….now they adopted out what we had left and says without heart that we can’t visit our loved ones, they never allowed us to visit or have phone calls because we were “disruptive” and emotionally hurting our children….whatever OCS, whatever…I’m praying….for you all….

    • After they improperly removed my daughter they said she had some level of hearing, my daughter was born deaf then they cut her auditory nerve and implanted her with cochlear implants against my wishes and banned me from attending her appointments.

    Awesomeness, she responded to the people, thank-you!

  3. …by the way, the judge ignored the testimony of our older children. Our children were testifying that there is no drugs or alcohol in our home and there is no violence, the state used criiminal history to take our rights away…

  4. This is true. It is all true. Parents’ rights are terminated without a jury trial…. only on the hearsay of social workers, guardians ad litem, state-paid defense attorneys( who do no defense) and state-paid judges. Everyone in the court room is paid by the state, or is employed by an organization that is paid by the state, which is also unconstitutional. (GALs and defense lawyers are paid by the same office, OPA.) Witnesses are denied their right to speak by court cases being dragged on and rescheduled until they are unable to appear. The Constitution of the US says that any transaction that involved more than $20 be given a jury trial….. these parents are ordered to pay child support for foster care before the hearing, even when they are innocent. They lose welfare benefits, if they had any. Their PFDs are garnished. Yes, they are treated worse than criminals and they are considered guilty until proven guilty.

  5. I am an attorney in Arkansas, we are in up to our eye balls in DCFS here. We are a small state yet are number two in the number of children in foster care, with only 2.9 million in the whole state as of last month we have 5,050 in foster care and an out-of-control rogue agency supported by elected judges. Follow the Title IV-E Federal money child protective agencies receive for every child in foster care. We need a congressional investigation.

  6. Legal Kidnapping is an accurate term that describes what is happening to families nationwide. It is not ‘overheated rhetoric’. Follow the money. Look at the budgeting formula for DCF/CPS agencies across the nation; it is clearly spelled out, blatantly so. You just have to do the legwork and start believing families.

    Florida has massive corruption as well! They have taken my granddaughter and adopted her to a stranger…while I had open appeals and other family members were waiting on home study process. There are violations of DCF rules, Judicial Rules, Florida Statutes, and Federal Law. Even the appeals get stamped “denied”. When motions for written opinion are filed they are also “denied”. Since this has happened I have met many in my county and abroad with similar stories. They are profiling and trafficking our children!

  8. Crazy no!!! They do this all the time!! Kidnapping with no warrant!!! Hold children with autism until they repeat what they want said. Try to Use children to intimidate witness into telling the story they want told.. It is criminal! Judges so arrogant to say on record in open court “I always rule with OCS and the DA’s office”.. Ya that is fair right? That is legal right?
