This is sick beyond belief, and it happens daily. A few years ago here in the Western Washington community I reside. A married CHRISTIAN couple had their children removed from their home for a period because one of the kids went to school with a bruise.

CPS (Children's Protective Services) works the same way in Texas. That is they have only types of action: Extreme Overkill and Complete Indifference. The have great parents signing safety agreements and taking parenting classes, and drug using child abusers get ignored. I work with CPS and still cannot fathom how they work.

Don't get wrong, I wouldn't do that job for anything, but our society needs to do more to make sure that the folks who have the respnsibility to protect abused children, and the power to devastate innocent parents, do their job properly.

There is no political muscle for this. Children don't vote, and parents who take care of their own children don't worry about anyone else's.

Agreed. I think the problem lies with University. Socialist workers,(my term), are so secularized and brainwashed by the time they graduate they believe religious people are the root of all evil. They are willing to give chance after chance to people that "need" the help of the state, and shaft the independent folks unmercifully.
