CPS: Restricting the media

For the second time in four months, Child Protective Services lawyers and its agents (mainly that of Sara Spector, who works for County/District Attorney Joe Grubbs) have requested Judge Greg Wilhelm not allow for certain information from reaching print or online Web sites.

Wilhelm refused both times, the latest one on Monday, Jan. 5.

However, what happened the following day is enough to make those who want the truth very uncomfortable.

Because of the request, our news editor bought SaraSpector.com to centralize all of this paper’s "horror stories" from families who have had their lives shattered and broken because of CPS and people like Spector.

The Web site host, the free WordPress.com platform, removed all of the content from SaraSpector.com because it "violated" the terms of use.

As of press time, efforts were under way to find out the source of the reasoning behind the removal of the site, but back-up Web sites are being created and utilized to host the now-removed content, which included photos, videos and stories our writers and our readers have put in the public sphere to warn and inform others.

Three Midlothian police officers stopped CPS from taking Connie Moody’s grandchildren because the agency did not have a court order. It was admitted by Spector that in fact it was a recommendation, not a court order. CPS still acted as if a court order was in place.

The situation with the Web site is nothing short of a parallel to what this agency has been getting away with for years.

Only in Ellis County it appears (from this writer’s view) does the CPS expose warrant the removal of a Web site devoted to exposing Spector and her associates from ripping families limb to limb and destroying lives.

The request to keep information from hitting our paper and Web sites was rejected, but now Spector will have to deal with a much larger arsenal dedicated to proclaiming the truth in more ways than just the World Wide Web and through our paper.
