Last year, Big League Politics reported on the harrowing case of 4-year-old Drake Pardo who was kidnapped from his parents by the Child Protective Services (CPS) of Texas.
The video of the Soviet-style raid on the Pardo family can be seen here:
According to court documents, CPS claimed that Drake’s mother Ashley Pardo was “exaggerating and lying about [her son’s] symptoms and conditions” and “demanding an unnecessary surgical procedure to place a G-tube” in order to justify the kidnapping.
Ashley Pardo noted that her son had been treated for “epilepsy, sleep apnea, immunodeficiency and fevers, autism, behavioral problems, cerebral palsy, dysautonomia, developmental delays and problems with feeding and swallowing,” and she was simply looking out for what was best for her special needs son. For being an attentive mother, her child was ripped away from her.
The Texas Supreme Court ultimately did the right thing and ordered for Drake to be returned home and for CPS to drop the case. However, the vindictive CPS was not finished punishing the Pardo family for fighting back against their overreach.
Drake’s parents have been placed on the child abuse registry by CPS, which appears on their record when performing background checks. This could stop them from being able to obtain employment or even volunteer at their son’s school or church events.
CPS made this determination without any input from a judge. They have the ability to unilaterally place innocent families on their abuse registry and have placed the Pardos in a registry next to murderers and rapists out of what seems to be spite.
The Texas Home School Coalition (THSC) has been representing the Pardos and are gearing up for the next stage of their fight against CPS. The Pardos are filing an appeal to the Office of Consumer Relations (OCR), an office within CPS that reviews appeals filed against the agency.
“Last year, the Pardos suffered traumatic injustice at the hands of CPS. Drake spent four months in foster care and the Pardos fought six months in court before finally being cleared of all charges. Now, this innocent family is being punished anyway,” the THSC wrote in their press release about the case.
“CPS protects thousands of children every year who desperately need their assistance, but this type of abuse of innocent families causes the agency to become the source of harm to a child instead of that child’s protector,” they added.
They have started a petition and are attempting to spur a letter-writing campaign to public officials to get their attention on this injustice. They also want people to call Gov. Greg Abbott to get the issue on his radar and donate to the cause if they can.
CPS is one of the most evil government agencies in existence, regularly funneling children to abusers while punishing Christian parents who love their children. Big League Politics will continue to follow the Pardo family’s case as their appeal is processed.
“Reimagine Los Angeles” Ballot Initiative Will Strip Almost $1 Billion From Law Enforcement, Court System
It’ll be on the ballot in November.
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a ballot initiative that would strip almost $1 billion in funding from the county court system and law enforcement, giving the county’s voters the option of enacting a defunding of police that possibly outpaces anything enacted by any city in the country.
The “Reimagine Los Angeles” ballot initiative strips the courts and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department of around $890 million in funds, distributing ten percent of the city’s unallocated budget towards jail alternatives, social work, mental health treatment and other alternatives to the justice system.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva slammed the proposal of the ballot initiative, likening it to a defunding of the sheriff’s department that would recreate the apocalyptic atmosphere of the ‘Mad Max’ films.
The @LACountyBOS just pushed forward agenda item 51-C, advancing the campaign to cont. defunding @LASDHQ & change public safety forever. Do YOU share their opinions? If you don’t want your streets to look like a scene from Mad Max, use your VOICE to tell the board what you think pic.twitter.com/Rzzh9nGo6l

The sheriff later explained that he’d have to close police precincts and cut back on personnel available for police patrol in the event the initiative passes.
Supervisor Kathryn Barger was the only member of the county board to vote against placing the proposal on the ballot, citing the large personnel cuts its approval would force the county to make, the questionable legality and vagueness of Reimagine Los Angeles, and her general opposition to defunding the police.
Supervisors Hilda Solis, Sheila Kuehl, Mark Ridley-Thomas, and Janice Hahn all voted to approve it, and it’ll be up to Los Angeles County voters to determine its fate in November.
