HSLDA | In CPS-Threatens-to-Take-Kids Case, HSLDA Appeals to the Supreme Court

An anonymous tipster put the Loudermilks on the Arizona Social Services’ radar. Two months after receiving the tip, two social services investigators and six sheriff’s deputies swarmed the Loudermilks’ property, demanding entry into their home.

The Loudermilks exercised their constitutional right to refuse entry. But the investigators threatened to take the Loudermilks’ children into state custody unless they were allowed immediate entry. While the Loudermilks conferred with their legal counsel, the social workers started filling out the paperwork for temporary custody of the children. Under duress, the Loudermilks let the social workers into their home. Five minutes later the investigators left, stating that the tipster’s allegations were obviously false.

  1. Depending on how they worded the ‘threat’ to take the children CPS could be in big trouble. 18 USC 242 might apply – Deprivation of Rights under color of law.

  2. I have no doubt they would have done it. Kind of surprised they didn’t do it anyway.

    Color of law is right. Seems to be what passes for law these days.
