    Barry County CPS/DHS/Foster Care Systems also need to be investigated for corruption/misconduct within their systems. Its all about money.

      If you've been involved with CPS then you're probably a dirtbag. The amount of violations you have to achieve to get your kids taken away is insane. They basically have to show up and see needles in your arm and your kids running around diaperless in their own mess to do anything about it. I've seen over the years that the people that hate cops the most are typically people who have dealt with them the most. The average Joe tax payer doesn't have to deal with cops, because they're productive members of society. To extend that, the typical person that has to deal with CPS/DHS shouldn't have been allowed to have kids to begin with.

        Wow, its people like you who make those departments so dangerous. You obviously know nothing about it because youre not a dirtbag criminal so youve seen nothing with respect to what has to be seen in order for anything to happen you are a big mouth know nothing idiot. Its just like people crying about pppl on food stamps, go shout loud about the billions we give to other countries and on war and quit worrying about what ppl buy with food stamps you bitter miserable sheep. When they decide to interfere with you you’ll see but you’ll get what you give ;)

      you are absolutely right! I went to court to support a friend and witness their behavior and I have never witnessed representatives of the court bbehave so unprofessional and vindictive. I cant believe this behavior is accepted and nothing appears inappropriate to anyone else. Unless people like “guest” do hear it but think all people are dirtbags who are being investigated anyway. But the reality is every complaint and allegation is investigated so something needs to be done.
