Our esteemed guest, Rachel Bruno details how her children were trafficked by social workers, a doctor, hospital staff, and cops working under the jurisdiction of the State of California while the nanny who may have been responsible for her 4-month old’s brain injury was protected from prosecution… because she was married to a cop? Because the State makes money from placing our children in foster care? Because the Constitution does not apply in Family Court? Part One of our chat with Rachel Bruno, Family Court Winner, Truth Teller, Advocate for Family Court Reform.
