Child Protective Services (CPS) continues their assault on OUR FAMILY! They have made some recent moves that my wife and I consider to be nothing less than unconscionable. With Timothy our 16-years-old son still separated from us and his six siblings, and still spiraling out of control, our other six children are now to be separated from each other the first time in their lives. It was not enough to rip them from their parents 15 months ago without cause, but apparently Child Protective Services (product acquisition team) will not rest until they complete a full round of destruction on our precious children. Our children are to be separated and spread into three separate foster homes (strangers). What on earth is going on? Who are these EVIL, DESPICABLE people? There are no words to describe the egregious ABUSE effectuated by CPS against OUR FAMILY!
I sent an email asking the following of CPS JULIE RIGGINS regarding CPS’ desire to continue their indoctrination program (therapy) for each of our oldest children - and continued with the subsequent exchange…
Original Email to Julie Riggins…
Help me understand something so I can continue to help in this effort to secure a therapist. Why is there a need for my children to have therapy? What is the diagnosis and how does the diagnosis relate to future therapy needs?

Response from Julie’s supervisor John Gustavson…
This is to respond to your inquiry about the need for continuing therapy for your children. In 2010 your four oldest children were diagnosed with Adjustment Disorder by a child mental health clinician with the Wake County Children’s Health and Development Program. The children’s therapist in Onslow County took this diagnosis into account while working with the children. Hannah and Sarah showed developmental and emotional growth while receiving services from this therapist. Stephen also showed progress in dealing with his emotions and their expression. He continues to desire to have an outlet to discuss his feelings regarding his family history and the changes affecting his family. However, over the past three to four months Matthew has shown a significant decrease in his ability to deal with stressors which indicates that he would benefit from a therapeutic relationship with a mental health clinician. In addition, all four children have recently experienced new stressors, including the news that they would not be moving to California to live with their mother, a move that they thought was imminent, and their upcoming moves into new foster homes in Wake County. In light of these circumstances it would be beneficial for the children to continue in therapy.
Child Welfare Services Supervisor
It’s truly amazing to see you write these words with a straight face (so to speak). You are all MASTERS, and give new meaning to the definition of “play on words” and “rhetoric.” You’re not fooling anyone. Sometimes I wonder if you actually believe your own “lip service,” manipulation, and BLATANT LIES. You should be quite aware that the original observations as stated by your so-called “child mental health clinician with the Wake County Children’s Health and Development Program” were to continue to monitor our children for “post traumatic stress” (which turned out to be way off base…) and not “adjustment disorder.” In fact it was not until the indoctrination sessions began in Onslow County that the so-called therapist, Joyce Williams (who I must say is an embarrassment to her profession) actually found NOTHING to support anything of the sort relating to ANY “Major” disorder and decided to assign a diagnosis of “adjustment Disorder,” which I have said before, truly amounts to nothing more than a “billing code” for her services (or should I say a profiteering scheme). Joyce Williams did however take the opportunity to poison my children’s minds with other elements of her “socialist” agenda for a period of over 9 months. I wonder if you personally, or anyone in your agency, has the first clue of what “adjustment disorder” really is? More importantly, what does it have to do with myself and my wife. The “adjustment” referred to in this particular “residual” disorder clearly points to you and your entire agency! You and the Kangaroo Court have caused this disruption in the lives of our entire family. The weakest (mentally) of our family are suffering the most, specifically I refer to the youngest of our children. Make no mistake about it, our entire family suffers from these actions initiated and by you, your agency, and the rest of the so-called court officers, other officials (Judges included), and the entire body of the Kangaroo Court in 4C.
Defined: adjustment disorder (AD) is a psychological response to an identifiable stressor or group of stressors that cause(s) significant emotional or behavioral symptoms that do not meet criteria for anxiety disorder, PTSD, or acute stress disorder. Treatments recommended include; symptom relief and behavior change.
Hey! Here’s a thought, what about returning our six minor children to their parents and restoring our FAMILY? Of course not, your agency has this thing “nipped in the bud” – you would rather separate our children from each other for the first time in their lives and disperse them two by two among strangers (three separate foster homes), and then present to them that their parent’s have abandoned them; which is in keeping with your endless trail of LIES and deception since the start. Hey! What about increasing the number of visits with their parents? OH NO, that would not work in your favor as our kids might see positive results (even symptom relief and behavior change) from their alleged “adjustment disorder.” After all, Every single visit has reported nothing but positive responses (in every way) from each of our children - when they have access to myself, my wife, or us together! Can you people actually be that INGNORANT? Or are you truly the epidemy of EVIL?
Recent visits have been reported as follows:
Report dated July 13, 2011 – prepared by Time Together Supervised Visit and Exchange Center’s MSW, LCSW; “When ending the visit all children hugged Mr. Reale and expressed their love for him. All children stated their disappointment with the ending of the visit. The children expressed desire to extend the visit and expressed that they are excited about the next visit. It should be noted that the children’s desire to extend the visit appears to be more out of love for Mr. Reale.”
“On a few occasions some of the children have attempted to delay the ending of the visit by clinging to Mr. Reale or attempting to hide in the room, stating their desire for the visit to continue.”
“Mr. Reale has used appropriate discipline with the children in relation to inappropriate behavior. The children appear receptive to Mr. Reale’s discipline strategies, which include acknowledging the negative behavior, discussing why the behavior is inappropriate and then pointing out other options to the negative behaviors. Mr. Reale also used positive reinforcement throughout all the visits; praising the children for positive interactions as well as cleaning up when prompted.”
Other visits have been more specifically reported as follows:
Report dated July 11, 2011 – prepared by Time Together Supervised Visit and Exchange Center’s MSW, LCSW;
“The discussion concluded with Matthew giving his dad a long embrace, while both cried a little. Matthew was given some time to compose himself before going with the therapist to get his siblings. Matthew appeared to enjoy the remainder of the visit and did not seem bothered by the discussion prior with his father. Matthew initiated conversations and engaged in play as he did in other visits.”
“Hannah has continued to express a need for close physical contact (hugs, sitting on lap) on numerous occasions throughout the visits. On occasion, Hannah has also expressed a desire to not leave visits as evidenced by her hiding at the end of a few different visits. Hannah also stated on one occasion, ‘we are going to McDonald’s but I’d rather stay here’ implying that she wanted to stay with Mr. Reale.”
“Sarah has been receptive to greater attention and on occasion has demonstrated her love for her mother and father. On 5/18/11, Sarah also expressed her love for Mr. Reale and her mother by drawing a picture of her mother and father inside of a heart with the words ‘I love mom and dad’.”
“On many occasions throughout each visit Joseph will make eye contact and smile at Mr. Reale. On 6/15/11, Joseph attempted to extend the end of the visit again by grabbing onto Mr. Reale’s leg and refusing to leave.”
“Benjamin has been open to affection by Mr. Reale. During the last three visits Mr. Reale has engaged Benjamin in reading a story, which Benjamin appears to really enjoy. During the last visit on 6/29/11 after stating goodbyes, Benjamin shared that ‘we are not going yet!’”
Stephen, My wonderful young man… Still not visiting due to the damage done by Child Protective Services. They have him so fearful, and so confused… He simply does not want to make them “mad” at him! He is so very scared! I am coming Stephen… You hang in there my buddy. Daddy is coming for you very soon!
You are absolutely 100% responsible for our son Timothy (16-years-old at the start of this), his current condition, and his current state of mind (mentally and physically). He has been placed on drugs to control his behavior (initiated by your agency back in September of 2010, while failing to meet his needs from the start of this fiasco), without consulting with myself or my wife. He has never had need of so much as an aspirin in our home. He has been detained by law enforcement on at least two separate occasions while in your custody, even arrested and charged at least once, with criminal charges pending (your agency is directly responsible). By the way, I now have dozens of emails sent to myself and my wife over the past several months that display Julie’s ignorance in making various claims that seem to blame Timothy and our other six minor children for their current situation! Clearly not willing to admit any fault on the part of your agency for the galactic failure with regard to removing our children and placing them with such incompetence to begin with. Once again your agency, specifically agents like yourself, Julie Riggins, Nikki Lyons, and Saundra Judd absolutely CAUSED these despicable acts to take root in OUR SON’S LIFE! Nothing of the sort has EVER been a part of Timothy, or his being – in any way. He is now what is so affectionately called a “cutter” best defined as; “Injuring yourself on purpose by making scratches or cuts on your body with a sharp object — enough to break the skin and make it bleed — is called cutting. Cutting is a type of self-injury, or SI. Most people who cut are girls, but guys self-injure, too. People who cut usually start cutting in their young teens. Some continue to cut into adulthood.” And you think I will not do EVERYTHING within my power to see you ALL held accountable? That aside, It is unconscionable to me that he may be lost – now 17-years-old! We have not given up on him, but realize that you and your agency have all but taken his LIFE – literally; as he will soon be 18 and on his own – virtually out of our grasp and likely paralyzing us from being able to rescue him from the path of destruction you have so happily set him on. Doing your best to live up to the stats I see!!!
- that Children are 11 times more likely to be abused in State care than they are in their own homes
- that there are more than half a million Children and Youth in the U.S. foster care system, a 90% increase since 1987
- that 3 of 10 of the nation’s homeless are former foster children
- that 12-18 months after leaving foster care:
27% of the males and 10% of the females had been incarcerated
33% were receiving public assistance
37% had not finished high school
50% were unemployed
- that 80 percent of prison inmates have been through the foster care system
Children in foster care are 3 to 6 times more likely than children not in care to have emotional, behavioral and developmental problems, including conduct disorders, depression, difficulties in school and impaired social relationships.
Some experts estimate that about 30% of the children in care have marked or severe emotional problems.
Various studies have indicated that children and young people in foster care tend to have limited education and job skills, perform poorly in school compared to children who are not in foster care, lag behind in their education by at least 1 year, and have lower educational attainment than the general population.
Based on your agency’s update at the hearings in April and your agency’s official Court Report from the same, Judge Monica Bousman made the following statement about Timothy as part of her “Order” filed on May 27, 2011; “It appears that his needs for safety and stability are being met.” WOW! What an understatement, and what deception – nothing NEW – same old CPS! Truly the scum of the earth!
You say that our girls Hannah and Sarah have “showed developmental and emotional growth while receiving services from this therapist” and that “Stephen also showed progress in dealing with his emotions and their expression.”
What does this mean? There is no reason for anyone to believe your LIES, your ability to access such a critical situation, or your claims of any need to continue such so-called therapy. Are you aware of what my girls may have suffered at the hands of Natasha’s live-in boyfriend? I have some very nice pictures of him that show off his charisma nicely – Mohawk and all. Have you conducted a background check on this person? ABSOLUTELY NOT! After all, you are the same people who concealed our son Stephen’s very serious medical episode/condition for almost 3 weeks, when he completely lost consciousness for no apparent reason – this after also concealing the fact that he had taken-up smoking with his 9-year-old brother, our son Matthew (whom you now describe as a boy who has shown a significant decrease in his ability to deal with stressors – as if it is his fault) and further concealed this little tidbit from Stephen’s examining doctor. You also concealed the trip to Pittsburgh that your agency arranged for my children as they went off to spend Christmas, not their own mother or father, but with my sister, their estranged Aunt Kelli-Ann (or is it Kelli Brant as I think she now refers to herself?), a person who is a well-known, proudly proclaimed sexual deviant, under very specific psychiatric care – requiring medication for well over ten years. A person whom my wife and I would NEVER trust with our children overnight. Oh, and let’s not forget about the medication the current caregiver Natasha Wilde-Brant requires to get through the day. You are the same agency that concealed the fact that Stephen (12 years-old) was left to care for his siblings - all 5 children under 10-years-old EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT while their 24-year-old caregiver was out doing God knows what? And what about all the sleep-overs (even after I objected)? Did any of those over-night folks have a background check done? I haven’t forgotten about the time when one of Natasha’s other live-in boyfriends (while she was still married) allowed Timothy (barely 16, no learners permit, let alone any experience behind the wheel of a car) to drive his car INTO A DITCH with our children Matthew 9, Hannah 7, and Sarah 6 in the back seat. And I never could figure out how you authorized another adult (Natasha’s Mother Robin Dominguez) and minor child (Natasha’s sister Wendy Dominguez – 10-years-old) to reside with Natasha and our 7 minor children (let’s see that makes 10 people) in a small apartment from August through January? With all the support I was providing ($6,000+ during those few short months) combined with the “Welfare” they were receiving, I guess we call that FRAUD where I come from! And you just stood by and watched? Even conspired to make it happen. By the way, I understand the current living conditions without the extra adult and child require my children to “share” a bed; what could it have been like with the extra bodies? Three to a bed? let’s not forget that you sent our children off to a “Church of God” week-long camp without even consulting myself or my wife. Government knows best??? Not quite. More like another violation of The First Amendment!
It literally sickens me as I read your “pass-the-buck” words of inspiration; “all four children have recently experienced new stressors, including the news that they would not be moving to California to live with their mother, a move that they thought was imminent, and their upcoming moves into new foster homes in Wake County.” As if to imply that my wife, who you coerced to begin with, is somehow responsible for the current condition of my children. This is a woman who you have successfully manipulated from day one. You coerced her into getting a Protective Order in April of 2010 (courtesy of Saundra Judd and her handiwork of LIES – I have it in black and white) when there was no need, but all the benefits to you and your cause at that time; and again in July 2011 (courtesy of Julie Riggins and her handiwork of LIES – really? trying to have a VOID Order from 2010 reinstated?), even after no-contact for over 11 months once again proving that you and your agency will stop at nothing to advance your agenda. And actually requiring this as part of the ICPC? I must confess, I have read much of this Interstate Compact and I see nothing of the sort in any of its requirements! Shameful! Did you hear that? It was the sound of all the walls of secrecy crashing down around you!
Hey Mr. Croutharmel, if you have made it this far in the reading, I thought you should know that I also have the email where you recommended Debra get a Protective Order after I successfully attacked the unlawful DVPO here in North Carolina, subsequently set-aside as VOID. On what grounds? Once again, that email was sent by you in the first week in April after 7 months of No-Contact with my wife. You really are a pretender, and it seems an unethical one at that…
From: Rick Croutharmel
To: Debra Reale
March 28, 2011
“This morning Judge Christian set aside the domestic violence protective order (DVPO). That means Ron no longer has a court order directing him to stay away from you. There is still a court order directing him to have only limited contact with the children (Judge Bousman’s order on Ron’s visitation).
You are free to do what you want at this point but I recommend you continue to stay away from Ron and keep your whereabouts hidden from him. Judge Bousman cannot enter an order directing Ron to stay away from you. Even if she could, she would not do so because she is waiting to see how you will handle the situation. If you return to Ron at this point, DSS, the GAL, and Judge Bousman will all probably see that as being bad for the children. You can also try to get another DVPO put in place in California. However, doing so will likely reveal your whereabouts to Ron. If you are interested in doing that, talk to Julie about it first to see how she feels about it.“
It seems your coercive tactics of intimidation failed with my wife’s return to North carolina and of course she did not take your advice in fraudulently pursuing a protective order. Is that how the Sixth Amendment gets interpreted these days? I can’t help but wonder if that sort of aggressive representation is within the ethics guidelines; i.e. representing your client zealously within the bounds of the law? We shall see. Do any of these statements ring a bell? A lawyer cannot assist his client in conduct he knows to be illegal or fraudulent. Furthermore, if a lawyer receives information that his client has conducted a fraud on a person or court he/she must ask the client to rectify the fraud. If the client is unable and unwilling, the lawyer must reveal the fraud to the individual or court. You call yourself “an officer of the court?” A pretender; through and through…
GUARDIAN AD LITEM…
Hey, Top Ten Counsel, What good is your so-called agency “The Guardian ad Litem” with such failures and incompetence proliferating about? How can you explain these acts of endangerment to our children? How can you continue to justify not returning our children to us immediately? I guarantee you will be nowhere near the “top-ten” with these acts of ineptness on your curriculum vitae. I will continue ExposingTheRecord. Maybe you should spend less time trying to “take-down” the website and more time earning your “easy-money” or at least giving a flip about the welfare of my children while they are in YOUR custody! A VOICE FOR THE CHILDREN? REALLY???
FOR THE REST OF YOU…
I DO NOT support my children continuing in these indoctrination programs of so-called therapy. I DEMAND that our children be released from their unlawful detention and returned to us forthwith. I DO NOT support my children be in contact with any member of our extended family in North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Arizona, California or any other state without prior approval from myself or my wife Debra. I do not support my children being taken to ANY CHURCH or ANY other religious EVENT of ANY kind. This is a violation of our family’s First Amendment rights! Period!
THIS IS NOT OVER! NOT BY ANY STRETCH! ANYONE CARE TO PARTAKE IN THE RADIO INTERVIEW I HAVE UPCOMING? GIVE US BACK OUR CHILDREN!!!
