LK Announcement

Good morning.

I have decided to retire Legally Kidnapped. 

After over 12 years of bring you the latest headlines regarding CPS fraud, failures and fuck-ups, I have decided it's time for me to move on to bigger and better things.  I still have no love for CPS so I will still be around in some capacity.  I just haven't figured it out yet.  

LK has simply become a burden and a dead horse that I can no longer do anything with.  My life circumstances have changed.  There are also technical issues with the blog that I can no longer overcome.  For example, thousands of dead links to articles that are no longer there on the servers.  This prevents me achieving any growth or earning any revenue for the hours of work that I put in and the fact that there are costs associated with running and growing any blog requires that.  

I would love for somebody else to take over, but I doubt anybody would be willing to put in the work.  I still own the domain name and haven't figured out what to do with it.  Should anybody be interested, you can contact me through Facebook and we can talk about it.

I want to thank all of my loyal followers.  I wish you all the best of luck in your fights against this evil system that has brought so much pain and suffering to to children and their families.  You will all be in my prayers.   



  1. I don’t know what I would have done without you Patrick. For that I’m so grateful. Finding LK when I thought I was alone offered me courage to speak, seek, and join a calling to change corruption.

    That said, my heart goes out to you. I have come to know the days and nights spilling into one another as one tries to inform and educate others. It’s exhausting physically and spiritually draining. While some people are genuinely appreciative and acknowledge efforts, others take and still demand more. When feeling bled dry emotionally and financially depleted, it’s time to recoup. We can’t help others as we intend in that state.

    You deserve to discover joy, freedom, life and love. You’re an amazing individual. From the bottom of my heart, I offer my thanks and well wishes.



  2. I would LIVE to take over for you, Patrick!!!

  3. I would LOVE to take over for you!

  4. You need get ahold of me, I will get a kick out-of writing More & more cases, just show me of in what format from the parents point of view,? Or from an outsider's point of view.

  5. My spouse and I are currently challenging the system. I have a lot of information that could possibly help. Please contact me

  6. This is lovely. keep it up.This is so lovely.

  7. Please, know, your have helped me through the years, the pain, obsession, grief, and support that you give others feeling a perspective of knowing, of understanding. You cannot retire from wisdom. Your cannot say it's time to move on, you never move on from wisdom. Your cannot just quit who and what you are when that means there are others who need you. Sit up fellow soldier, tighten the saddle that horse isn't dead! It just needs to rest so rest it shall, but you will not get out like that, if it were that easy you would've never been placed in that role. So get on your skates when you're ready for your soul is beautiful and cannot leave it's faster behind. That's not how it 4 works. Pass the reigns till you come back to a trusted person or colleague, because you gotta come back. The rest of us need you to. If I can't give up you can't either!! I've been here 13 years, watching you watching me . I need you too. It's Almost Tuesday is stuck in a soda can too, next door, and I don't want to be alone.

  8. Even if you can't keep doing this please keep the site up so people can come here.

  11. My granddaughters were taken in April 2014...when they were 9 and 11...we have not been allowed to see them now for almost 5 years..i asked to be able to see them on their birthdays..cps never replied til their birthdays were over..then said we could not see them..but we could write letters to cps and they would decide whether they should be given to them...their dad, who had his visits with them taken away and his rights terminated by cps, died in 2017! CPS still would not let us see or talk to our grandchildren..we wanted custody of them...they both are now adopted..and 15 and 17 years old...we've missed their whole childhood!!

  12. I went to every attorney in our town and noone would help us! They said there was nothing they could do. I wish i had known about all of this.!!

  13. I would love to discuss continuing this legacy of yours. Your tired horse can keep on grazing. There is an end to this madness, coming soon. One way or the other!! The information provided is still needed by the unfortunate newbies. If you already have someone, that is wonderful, if not, please consider reaching out to me. Many blessings!
