3-year-old prescribed six psychotropic drugs in CPS' care
Here's 4-year-old Rachel Harrison before Child Protective Services took her away from her parents.
Once CPS takes over, you can see the drastic changes for yourself.
"And as a parent it's very hard to deal with because your baby's in trouble and you can't do anything to help," said Rachel's mother Christina Harrison.
Watch as the bubbly little girl starts looking more like some neglected waif while under CPS's care.
"She was never abused or neglected in any way except by CPS," said Debbie Flores, Rachel's grandmother.
In numerous court hearings CPS caseworkers would admit they had no reason to think Rachel's parents ever neglected or abused her.
The only reason CPS took custody was the young parent's recreational drug use.
Something they admitted to and lived to regret.
But ironically Rachel would be the one hooked on drugs while under CPS's watch including Risperdal, a drug used to treat Schizophrenia and Bi-Polar disorder and according to the FDA, should not be given to a child under 10.
"3-years-old, given psychotropic drugs, there's no reason for it none at all," said David Harrison, Rachel's father.
It was 2007 when CPS first entered the family's life.
The state agency took Rachel into protective custody soon after her birth because her mom tested positive for marijuana.
This 2007 home video shows a horrific case of diaper rash Rachel had while in foster care. The baby's awful condition is pointed out to 2 CPS caseworkers but neither decides to seek immediate medical attention.
Even after a judge ordered the foster mom to get Rachel to a doctor A.S.A.P., CPS failed to make sure that happened. Later CPS admitted to making big mistakes.
Fast forward to July 2010.
"I went to the hospital to get my appendix out and tested positive for cocaine," Rachel's mother said.
That was enough for CPS to take Rachel again and spend over a year trying to terminate David and Christina's parental rights.
CPS wouldn't allow the family to see Rachel for two months. What they say they saw was a drooling, lethargic emaciated looking little girl who wanted to play a very strange game.
"She was also writing prescriptions, Rachel which is not normal," her mother said. "They might play doctor but she was writing prescriptions on paper, here take your medicine."
The family spent months asking CPS if Rachel was on drugs.
"We kept asking but they kept denying," Christina Harrison said.
"You could just tell there was a physical change between when she was with us and the time they had her at that point." David Harrison said.
CPS's own policy dictates parents must be told within 24 hours about their child needing or receiving medical treatment.
But these parents didn't know for 6 months until it finally came out in a court hearing.
You're powerless against these people, they hold all the cards and do whatever they want," said Rachel's father.
After the judge started questioning CPS about the little girl's declining condition, CPS gave up trying to terminate the couple's parental right's and gave them their daughter back.
According to court testimony Dr. Owen Osagie is the psychiatrist who prescribed psychotropic drugs to a then 3-year-old.
"He testified he had seen Rachel for approximately 15 minutes," Flores said.
According to the Texas Medical Board, Dr. Osagie prescribed Clonidine to Rachel in excess of the dosing guidelines, while simultaneously increasing her dose of Risperdal, then failed to properly monitor the little girl.
"There's paperwork saying she was screaming for mommy and daddy," Rachel's mother said.
"And the easiest way to handle her acting up was to medicate her," said Rachel's father.
Osagie ignored our attempts to contact him for a response.
According to an agreed order with the medical board Osagie must complete at least 24 hours of continuing medical education and pay a 5 thousand dollar administrative fee.
"I know a lot of other families and a lot of other parents who are going through the same thing," said Rachel's grandmother.
Late last year the United States Government Accountability Office reported these disturbing findings:
"Texas is one of 5 states where children in foster care were prescribed psychotropic drugs 2.7 to 4.5 times more often than children who were not in foster care, with children in Texas foster care being the most likely to receive psychotropic drugs."
CPS wouldn't discuss the Rachael Harrison case with us. According to the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, Dr. Osagie has treated 755 children in CPS foster care and continues to do so.

"Hello ladies.Prolonged crying can increase the risk of SIDS. You raise baby's blood pressure, heart rate, anxiety... when they finally stop crying is because they are exhausted into sleep and increases the chance of sudden infant death syndrome The child becomes afraid and needy. They don't understand why they are alone and become anxious people. They are unable to trust their caregivers to come for them when needed. On the flip side, kids who cosleep with their parents tend to be more independent when they are ready to become so and have better relationships with their parents.Making your babies CIO really is sad because a lot of people don't seem to understand that touch and comfort are just as much of a need as food and warmth are for babies.Touch is so important for babies, hospitals actually assign nurses to cuddle babies without guardians, to support the baby's health, growth and development. Babies left without touch do not have as high of survival rates.

Jordan Peterson on How betrayals destroy your entire world
In this lecture, 04 and 05 combined, he discusses the relationship between the initiatory structure characteristic of shamanism and the process of radical personality transformation, self- or therapy-induced.
The basic structure is order/paradise, chaos/the fall, re-establishment of order/paradise. Since all paradises fall, however, the true paradise is identification with the process of transformation itself.

Graham Hancock - TEDx Talk - DMT, Life after Death & Consciousness.
Graham Hancock - The real widespread war the rages every day is a war not for anything more than our consciousness and it affects everyone under the top 1%.
Take hold of humanity by the balls and the mind and you've got them in a non real trap - supporting a system the kills and plots bloody murder each day and hides the tracks of it's existence to cover and distort the truth and to keep YOU from finding the simple answers to free energy and the simple answers to cancer cures and to keep you bound by the state affairs called 'the economy' that is completely manipulated.
A wise man once said - the devils greatest trick is convincing you that he doesn't exist. Most men and women today fall at the feet in Stockholm syndrome fashion begging for mercy to the lord money.
It's no wonder that life follows the events written out in the bible - for life is predictable and the cycles of it are also predictable - many people know more than we could possible hope to know about the reality we live in - as the events that occur follow the book to the word like a comical magicians tale - we buy into different factions of the same system, be it through science, religion, or history.
Money was never the solution and is fast becoming the demise of this planets eco systems and health for profit. Little do we know that we have enough food, we have enough resources and we have enough health to be able to achieve monumentally amazing feats of life if we worked together.
Unfortunately the entire system is designed to keep us from discovering any truth. Business is built on secrecy and without it - it could not survive.
The evolution of Open Source and Free Energy are putting a strangle hold on the system. While the top bankers of the world are committing suicide "being killed" we stand by and watch ... as we've been programmed to do by fear mongering governments who constantly put out a barrage of fear each day in the air in forms of audio, sound and energy in the air.
Any person who is slightly spiritual will tell that fear in it's single powerful form is enough to keep you from experiencing almost all things spiritual or scientific.
The real human deficit is lack of human experience and lack of knowledge and lack of spirituality. The universe is a spiritual "conscious" thing, we are a mirror of the universe. We must align or be forgotten.
Understanding is easy if you have the ability to really questions your "knowledge" and "beliefs" ... and have the balls to create new ones the SERVE the planet and that SERVE humanity as a whole.
Only then can we truly experience our greatest potentials that lay dormant and suppressed by thousands of year old Science invented to do just that. Control the masses for the gain of the minority.
