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.

The school interviewed the kid and she told the officials she fell on a slide at McDonalds. School officials nor the DSHS thugs believed her story.

When they placed the little girl in the police car for transport to a foster family she recited scripture to herself for the entire ride.

It took a legislators intervention to get the kids released. Yet, this kind of stuff happens daily. Sick, sick, sick. We have to stop this, NOW.

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.
