As the government continues to treat citizens as guilty upon accusation without evidence, even mothers who have been traditionally favored in all matters of family are being faced with arrest when falsely accused of crimes against their children absent any supporting evidence. This is a familiar but disturbing occurrence for many fathers, but mothers should realize that they may face the same offense of being treated as guilty by accusation and arrested without evidence simply because of a malicious allegation.

Tammy Cooper was arrested by the La Porte Police Department after her neighbor Shelley Fuller reported that she had “abandoned” her children, ages 6 and 9, by letting them play outside. She claims she told police that she was home the whole time and her children were merely riding their scooters in the cul-de-sac outside their home.
They then went to talk some more with the neighbor.

Police then say that the neighbor alleged she had hit one of the children playing in the street with her car. This prompted the police to arrest Tammy Cooper, despite there being no evidence of either child being hit by a car and Cooper and her children saying it is not true.

Cooper’s children witnessed her arrest and protested against it. She claims her back pain problems were aggravated by the way officers handcuffed her behind her back so tightly that the cuffs cut into her skin. She had requested that they handcuff her in front due to her back problems, but they ignored her request. She claims that the consequent damage may result in the need for back surgery.

Following this, Houston CPS then investigated Cooper for child abuse. CPS interrogated the children but found no cause for concern and ended the investigation. The felony child abandonment charges against Cooper were dropped because they could not be substantiated.

Cooper has filed a lawsuit against La Porte Police Department for false arrest and against Shelley Fuller for defamation. Beyond the emotional and physical pain caused by the incident, she has also reportedly suffered $7000 in legal and court fees before the felony charges were dropped.

It is common for false accusations to result in severe financial damages to the falsely accused even when charges are not filed. As in this case, the police typically take no action against the false accuser.

Public Encouraged to Snitch on Non-Crimes

This particular incident is one example of a growing trend. In the video clip below, Alex Jones talks about this case and how the government encourages people to snitch on each other over things that are not crimes such as their children playing in their yards and photography in public places.

    Hi there, my name is Sharon Joyce-Burns. My husband and I manage a blog at: We are parent advocates. We have personal knowledge and experience with sociopathic ex-wives and the unfair alienation they are obsessed with. My husband’s ex not only attempted to alienate him from his daughter, but she went far out of her way to ensure that we lost our son to CPS. Well, she didn’t have to go that far out of her way, her mother worked (and is still a “consultant”) for CPS for 35 years and used her influence to destroy our family. I can testify that this woman would undoubtedly be in the Top 10 Sociopaths of All Time. I am not sure why I am not in a mental hospital after everything she has done!
    Someone posted a link to an old article on my Facebook newsfeed, the one about the Conference in Del Mar back in 2010. I am about to tab over to the link to watch the video about it on YouTube but I thought I would introduce myself and let you know that I would like to post a link on our site to this site as it is an issue relevant to our cause and it would be a good site for fathers and mothers experiencing family law corruption and bias. Our primary objective has been exposing CPS but the problems in Family Court are equally devastating. Of course, if you wanted to put a link to our site on the side bar, that would be cool. Check out our site, which does have a court bashing theme however, we provide information and resources as well.
    Sincerely, Sharon Joyce-Burns
