    I have a son with aspergers I was recently looking for a home to purchase. While looking for a home I had stopped at several to see there condition two of them where open to look inside the police in the city where I live took me my mother and my 10 year old son to jail and DHS took my son without the option of a familly member taking him. They are trying to charge me with endangerment of a child and two counts of breaking and entering with intent to steal property. I have hired a lawyer but I beleive this has been an abuse of power that in return has put this child into an unhealthy situation with his condition. I have not been able to have any contact with him no paperwork and it has been a 6 days today. I am looking for anyone to expose this situation for what it is. Thank you for listening.
