ST LUCIE COUNTY FLORIDA;
To say my brother Bradley Ervin has a perfect past, would not be telling the truth. what I do know? He loved/loves his son so much, He would never do anything to hurt him. the facts?--a mentally unstable individual was able to exact her revenge by falsely accusing him of child abuse.
EVEN IF MY BROTHER WAS GUILTY, THERE IS NO REASON WHY A CHILD SHOULD BE KEPT FROM HIS FAMILY
- The accusations were made before the full circumstances of a child's injury are understood.
-The DCF caseworkers removed my nephew without probable cause
-They DID NOT conduct a diligent search for immediate family.
-THE ACCUSER should have been investigated. THEY DID NOT DO THIS!
-here's a short summary,
Currently I am out of state. I am in Ohio, Where my second home study was conducted and approved. While living in Florida, finally, after a few months had a home study, which was denied. It was based on three untrue assumptions. One was because of my disability. As a disabled veteran, I was discriminated against from the beginning. In Florida, they are supposed to provide prospective families with multiple resources. This is written. They did NOT do this. They just wanted to keep my nephew Gabriel in the system. There was NO intention to place my nephew with me. When I moved to Ohio, as I stated before I had a home study done, and it was approved for PLACEMENT. Since my nephew had been in the foster care system for so long, they decided not to place him with me. When I went to the last trial, new evidence was found, and not TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION!
-The accuser DID NOT TELL THE TRUTH (WE HAVE EVIDENCE)
-I AM A WITNESS
Gabriel needs to know who his family is
GABRIEL ERVIN NEEDS TO BE WITH HIS FAMILY
DO NOT LET OUR FAMILY BE ADOPTED OUT !
Gabriel should have been placed with us, or returned to his FATHER a long time ago
DCF hindered my visitations. They claimed, since I was not part of the case, I had no reason to bond with him. As soon as the magistrate said I could, it was granted that day.
-Multiple texts and communications were sent between case worker and myself, I begged for visitations, denied every time, until the judge said I could. Nothing changed in the case either.
-My brother is Incarcerated for a crime he did NOT commit
-He WAS forced to sign a plea deal.
-He WAS THE subject of Malicious Prosecution.
-He Was treated in an unfair, unlawful, unjust way.
-My nephew was never given a change to be with his family.
-families should be kept together
-the supervisor stated I would be dangerous, because I served in a combat zone
-we need to reform the Department of Children and families, not just in Florida, but other states as well.
- REFORM; There needs to be proof of physical evidence in each case to convict a person, also there needs to be a more in depth search for family, when/if a child is removed from the home. There should be NO conflict of interest between foster family, case worker, judge, or attorneys. This creates bias opinion/actions of each party. (intentionally).
WE NEED MORE SUPPORTERS, TO CHANGE THIS SITUATION NOW, PEOPLE BEFORE ME, FAMILIES AFTER ME. GIVE US HOPE AND HELP EDUCATE, INFORM, AND CHANGE THE WAY FAMILIES ARE TREATED DURING DEPENDENCY CASE PROCEEDINGS. THIS CAN HAVE THE POSSIBILITY TO ALTER THE OUTCOME. :)
