Georgia DCFS Administrator Arrested For Child Cruelty

This happened in 2007- From all of my research the alleged defendant tried to have this covered up. Now I ask each one of you who read this, how does this incident differ from any of the other alledged incidents that CPS accuses thousands of parents of each year? She claimed she was innocent. She had an inside channel in that she worked of Georgia DFCS. She felt that she shouldn’t have been charged. How familiar does this sound. The shoe never wears well when it is on the other foot. It is time to put Georgia DFCS on notice. IT is time – past time to return children to their parents. IT is time to stop the buying and selling of our children.

Georgia DCFS Administrator Arrested For Child Cruelty

According to news reports. The accused woman, Cylenthia Clark, 38, is an assistant director for Fulton County DFCS. On March 13, 2007 News4Jax.Com published this articleFCS Official Accused Of Spanking Daughter With Belt. According to this news report the accusation came after school officials reported that the accused woman’s eight-year-old daughter had marks on her back and legs. The mother apparently has confessed that she forced her daughter to strip down to underwear, then spanked her with a belt. She claims this isn’t child abuse and that it was done because the girl misbehaved at school. The eight year old girl and her three sisters, ages 6, 5, and 3, have all been placed in protective custody.Because of this accusation Cylenthia Clark is having second thoughts about how child abuse cases are handled. She is quoted as saying, “It makes me very empathetic; it makes me look at some of the cases that we handle. It’s something that down the line that it’s something that we are really following through and getting all the questions answered before we assume that person is guilty.”And that’s a good point. Is she guilty? In America we are supposed to be considered innocent before proven guilty, however for thirty years parents have complained that in child abuse cases they are considered guilty first, then forced to prove their innocence. It can be very difficult to prove that something didn’t happen when government-paid experts are saying it could have. What seems strange to me is that the arrest warrant states that the beating took place on February 7 but the school personnel didn’t see the welts until February 28. That’s 21 days later, and welts were still visible? If that’s correct, the injuries must have been severe.

    Yvonne, I’m so glad you posted this. It’s going on my blog tonight after midnight for tomorrow’s edition. So far I have 23 stories and videos and the limit is 25 (not Blogspot’s but mine) unless I change how many postings show up on the front page. I guess it depends on how many more relevant stories I find. You’re doing a damn good job at this blog so keep it up. Actually, I’m quite amazed and thrilled. Yours is growing a lot faster than mine did but I’m really happy with mine right now as well. Keep up the good work and we will continue to cross post until CPS is destroyed. I don’t believe it can be reformed.

      It is because of your support my friend that the site is growing like it is. It is also because I am already known as an author. Your site is wonderful I have been there many times and you are doing a fantastic job. Yes, my dear we will make a difference, not a matter of if- a matter of when.

    You give me way too much credit here. Your blog is fantastic and it has nothing to do with me. Trust me on this, my blog might get you new readers but it’s the quality of the postings that keep them coming back! I will continue to recommend your blog every chance I get. We can cross-post, repost, share, etc. cos the more people we enlighten and empower, the closer we get. In fact, that gives me an idea for an article…The Power of Enlightenment! One CAN make a difference. I’m warning you though, you can burn out really quick if you’re not careful. We deal with horrific cases, abused foster children and abused bio children where CPS failed to protect and it can get very depressing. I learned this lesson the hard way, but find something fun to do just for you every day. Enjoy the slow days and take advantage of the high traffic days cos the more we post, the closer we get to destroying CPS. I’m in it for the long haul and I can tell that you are too. We’ll get this thing done and like you said, not a question of if but when.

      You my dear friend forget my background, you also forget that I have been fighting these fools for over 30 years. And you also forget my background and the fact that I also have book deadlines. So my sweet concerned friend, no I don’t think I will get burned out. – Just more determined. They will be taken to task. We will be heard.

    That’s true, I do forget your background. It can just get depressing some days. I get really tired of all these children dying under CPS’s watchful eye. I’ve learned to take a few hours off every single day because I am in this for the long haul. We are going to destroy CPS. I am freaking determined, lol!!!
