Truth Revolt: The government is threatening to put 13-year-old Ethan Chaplin up for adoption. Chaplin was forced to undergo a battery of physical and psychological tests after a bully yelled out “he’s making gun motions, send him to juvie” because Chaplin was twirling a pencil.
Although the school backed off and allowed Ethan back into school, the New Jersey Department of Children and Families disagreed.
The thelibertarianrepublic.com reports, “Ethan’s father, Michael Chaplin, got on the Department’s bad side when he initially refused to take his son to be physically and psychologically tested. Michael relented after the Department sent the family an ominous letter labeling Michael’s noncompliance ‘an incident of abuse or neglect.'”
After the tests concluded with a clean bill of health for Ethan, the DCF sent another letter threatening that if Ethan were not taken in for more tests, his parents would forfeit their parental rights and the state would put Ethan up for adoption.
“All I can do is keep fighting, keep telling the truth and (keep) presenting the evidence. That is all I can do and hopefully the state does the right thing,” Michael said.
“13 year-old Ethan Chaplin of Vernon was suspended from school and ordered to undergo psychological testing for twirling his pencil in what some thought looked like a gun motion. His father initially balked at the idea if subjecting his son to a psych exam, but conceded when threats were made to take his child away.
Well first they stripped him, they put him in a bed, took everything away from him including his phone, about an hour later they took urine and then 45 minutes later they took blood in which he passed out and they released him,” Chaplin said.
…within 48 hours DCPP had filed a motion in court of care and supervision of Ethan and my other child. Outlining steps or process by which I have to follow or then they will seize Ethan and place him up for adoption.“
