Hal & Michelle Stanley with five of their children, at the office of attorney Joe Churchwell on January 12, 2017 (the two-year anniversary of the beginning of their DHS nightmare). Their Federal Civil Rights lawsuit was ready for filing at the Hot Springs Federal Court building on the 12th, but because the court was not available to accept their filing, it was delayed till Friday the 13th in Fort Smith.

A federal civil rights lawsuit was filed today (Friday the 13th, 2017) two years and a day after a small army composed of approximately 30 government agents descended upon the Garland County residence of Hal & Michelle Stanley and seven children still living at home at that time.  The occupation of their property included numerous vehicles parked in front of their home making it “look like a used car lot”, including an ambulance with a medical examiner onboard … and a marked coroner’s vehicle. A SWAT team was reportedly deployed nearby, ready to engage at the scene if called upon to do so. A neighbor reported viewing a sniper laying in the bushes at the edge of the Stanley property, apparently positioned to take-out Hal Stanley and/or his pregnant wife Michelle Stanley who were being detained on the front porch, if deemed necessary.

Authorities commandeered the home and the surrounding property on Treasure Isle Road, where the Stanley’s had lived peacefully for twenty-one years, for over five hours. According to the plaintiffs, DHS officials on the scene and the medical doctor who examined the children on the scene, maintained there was no justifiable cause for removal of the children. Nevertheless, the Arkansas State Police Crimes Against Children Division Investigator (not a law enforcement officer despite the title)  was evidently determined to have the children taken anyway, and according to the plaintiff’s claim, a cooperating Garland County Sheriff’s Deputy, following a phone call to the Garland County Sheriff, ordered the removal on the insistence of that CACD investigator. A very long nightmare for the Stanley family had only just begun …

  1. Praying for you all. The Lord knows the hearts of those involved and He goes before us always! He is good! I have been harrassed by DCFS to a point I was terrified. My children are my world and I had done nothing wrong. I was a victim too. Praying

    Over kill (pun intended) you think? It’s sad that one person would command all this to happen when theres no proof of anything going on. “Arkansas State Police Crimes Against Children Division Investigator (not a law enforcement officer despite the title) was evidently determined to have the children taken anyway, and according to the plaintiff’s claim, a cooperating Garland County Sheriff’s Deputy, following a phone call to the Garland County Sheriff, ordered the removal on the insistence of that CACD investigator. ”
    Seems to me the CACD investigator needs to be fired and then brought up on charges.

  3. Praise the Lord. I am praying for justice, knowing this trauma cannot be healed by justice, but only by the power of God’s comfort. But, knowing that justice is being served, helps in the process. And seeing this justice take please shows these people are relying on God. He alone will repay. For the Stanley’s, I pray they can walk in the power of the Lord’s forgiveness, allowing HIM place to act mercifully to these false accusors, that perhaps even their hearts would turn to the Lord.

  4. We heard about this all the way down here in Texas! It is an outrage! I chalked it up to all of the stupidity that transpired during the eight years of the barack hussein administration. This is more GOVERNMENT OVER-REACH intruding into the lives of the American People. At the time that this occurred, I sent Asa Hutchinson a message. Of course, I got no response from him or his office. I am sorry that this happened to you. God’s speed!
