Perjury, & Coercion
We received the following letters, purportedly authored by
Kevin Kingston, from a local Utah radio station. Among many
disturbing allegations, the letters specifically accuse the
State of Utah and its paid agents of abuse, perjury, and
coercion. Take action to restore justice in Utah.

1. Boy Escapes ARTEC Facility to Beg Public for Help
We received the following
letters, purportedly authored by Kevin Kingston, from a local
Utah radio station. Among many disturbing revelations, the
letters accuse the State of Utah and its paid agents of:
Attempting to coerce Kevin
into testifying against his parents — and then punishing him
for refusing to do so;
Knowingly ignoring a sexual
predator in state custody who has molested other children
and who threatened Kevin's life;
Employing agents who commit
perjury (Guardian ad Litem employee Kirsten Brewer and DCFS
employee Curtis Giles) against innocent families; and
Playing mind/punishment games
to pit Kevin against his parents (note that his parents have
yet to be convicted by a jury of their peers of a crime
related to the seizure of their children).
We have provided the three
letters below in .pdf format. As they are difficult in some
places to read, we have also typed them out in Word97
documents as accurately as we could (to include spelling and

2. Take Action!
We can not comment on the
accuracy of these claims. We do not know whether the
Kingston parents are child abusers.
But the letters, the boy, his
strange parents, family, and religion are secondary to the
fact that, as is
amply supported by documentation on our website, these
types of abuses do occur within Utah's nightmarish "child
welfare" system. We also know that the Kingston parents
and children have been denied basic due process to defend
themselves against their accusers. The denial of
their rights is a denial of our own rights.
Not long ago,
citizens held a
funeral service for a baby boy who was murdered in the Utah
foster care system. Unfortunately, we had no foreknowledge of
his abuse. With Kevin Kingston, we now have such
foreknowledge. This boy claims that he, and other children,
are being abused by our government. We have a duty and an
obligation to make some attempt to ensure that they are
protected from harm.
Based upon these serious
allegations, here are several things that should occur in a
watchdog/advocacy groups should be fully empowered to
investigate these charges and report their findings to the
public directly. Though Judge Valdez has apparently
called for an investigation into these state abuses,
based upon past history, the veracity and accuracy of
any state investigation should be seriously ridiculed.
If any of these allegations
are proven, criminal charges should be brought up against
the perpetrators and they should be summarily removed —
at the very least for
malfeasance of office.
Accused individuals —
including parents — all need the right to a trial by a jury
of their peers. We frankly do not know whether the
Kingston parents are guilty of seriously abusing their
children as the state claims. BUT WE WILL LIKELY NEVER
KNOW WITHOUT A TRIAL BY JURY! Judge Valdez is not a
jury. He is one man who, with the blessing of your
legislature and governor, has assumed the rights and powers
of an entire jury of citizens. One man cannot wield such
power without being corrupted in the process. It is cruel to
allow him to continue to do so. To learn more about the
right you no longer have to a trial by jury, see our
Issue in Focus: "Why
Are Jury Trials Crucial to Your Freedom?"
Other crucial parental
rights need to be reinstated in Utah, including the
right to be found guilty of a significant criminal act
before punishment is carried out, and the right to competent
counsel. See a partial list of the rights parents no longer
have, see our
Top Legislative Reforms.
Utah judges need to be
severely restricted from lording over juries and should
be directly accountable to the people rather than to the
governor and special interests. A judge is supposed to serve
the jury as a referee of sorts. He is to ensure that the
courtroom provides a fair and open opportunity for the
accused and accuser to present their arguments and facts. He
is to ensure that the jury has ample opportunity to obtain
the information it needs to attempt to determine the truth.
Juries should be empowered and encouraged to decide whether
the accused has broken some statute, and also whether the
statute is just or whether it should be discarded.
Instead, judges now rule courtrooms like their dictatorial
British counterparts at the time of the American Revolution.
This caliber of human being holds no respect for true
civility and gentility. Like barbarians, they lack decency
and morality, and must be treated with the same politically
harsh methods they currently employ in their courts of
lawlessness. Learn more about
curbing the power of Utah's tyrannical judges, see and,

Are Jury Trials Crucial to Your Freedom?"
Perverse federal incentives
for child seizure must end. Each year, the federal
government gives the State of Utah multi-millions of dollars
for children seized from parents — regardless of the guilt
or innocence of those parents. Parents cannot realistically
expect justice from a corrupt system that financially
rewards the state for removing innocent children.
And who is responsible to ensure
that these actions are taken?
Your state representatives,
state senators, attorney general, and governor have
created and encouraged the current corrupt "child welfare"
and court system that denies justice and basic due process.
They have had more than ample notice and warning and utterly
refuse to correct their behavior. They are directly
responsible for the barbaric atrocities committed against
innocent families. Contact your officials by visiting our
elected official contact page. Please inform us of any
responses you receive at
Citizens who defend these
elected officials enable these kinds of abuses to occur.
For instance, many senators and representatives give lip
service to parental rights, and some tinker around with the
status quo. But none will sponsor
and follow through on serious legislation to restore a
parent's fundamental right to a trial by jury. To learn more
about the role of citizens in enabling political corruption,
Issue in Focus on the subject. Combat this
problem by sharing this information with your family,
friends, and neighbors. Challenge them to take action
and be more responsible for their government.

how we can influence this situation, including lawsuits,

taxpayers to investigate these types of allegations, etc.,
