CPS must be held accountable for its illegal actions against the Pardo family!

Holding CPS Accountable for Drake Pardo’s Removal

The Drake Pardo case is gaining a lot of attention as people all over the state continue to pray for this little four-year-old, a medically fragile child with special needs removed from his home and family illegally by Child Protective Services (CPS) on June 20th. The video of two CPS caseworkers accompanied by four police officers removing the little boy while his parents wonder why is heart wrenching.

The discussion on THSC’s Facebook page has a question that arises over and over. Why? Why did CPS take the child and the answer is they won’t say.

Four-Year-Old Traumatized by Illegal CPS Removal (Update on Drake Pardo)

After five days of forced and illegal separation from their four-year-old son Drake, Ashley and Daniel Pardo were given the chance to meet with him briefly during a visit on Tuesday.

His parents were forced to explain to him that this would not be possible.

Drake periodically switched roles and pretended to knock on the door and scare his parents.

What if your homeschooled child was picked up by the police any time of day and wrongfully charged with a class C misdemeanor? It would be traumatic for both the child and the family.
