A Black family from Georgia is fighting to get their five children back from the state of Tennessee after they were reportedly stopped for tinted windows and arrested for possessing a small amount of cannabis.
Bianca Clayborne and Deonte Williams were traveling to a funeral in Chicago on February 17th when Tennessee Highway Patrol officers pulled them over and charged Williams with a misdemeanor, and gave Clayborne a citation. Six hours later, Clayborne reportedly had her five children taken from her and placed into state custody, after the state Department of Children’s Services sought and obtained an emergency order from a judge.
The state has reportedly accused the family of putting their kids in danger. The family’s lawyer called their ordeal “shocking to the conscience.”
The Department of Children’s Services refused to comment on the case due to state anonymity laws but stated that the Coffee County judge was responsible for the decision to put Williams’ and Clayborne’s kids in state custody.
Tennessee has been recognized as having one of the most troubled foster care systems in the country, and lawmakers have criticized the justice system for taking children away from their families over a misdemeanor charge.
