CPS Out of Control

Wal-Mart employees reported what MIGHT have been child porn when they saw pictures of a naked child in a bathtub, taken by their parents while on vacation. They did it because they MIGHT have been included under the law that FORCES people who regularly come in contact with children to report ANY possibility of child abuse or be in trouble themselves (Under the Child Abuse & Neglect Reporting Act [fed. legislation passed in 1974]), Which is okay, if the “child protectors” didn’t take this and “run with it,” taking the children from their parents on the “off chance” the pictures, which were innocent pictures like most parents take of their kids, MIGHT be child sex abuse. It wasn’t. But the “child protectors, who have “dirty minds,” took the children anyway, and kept them for a month, collecting a “fee” from the feds for every day they were “in the system.” (Under the Child Abuse Prevention And Treatment Act of 1974 (CAPTA). When they finally came to their senses, they returned the kids (though they usually keep them and put them up for adoption, abuse or not, and collect $4,500 to $6,000), but probably charged the parents thousands of dollars for “the cost of foster care” which they neither wanted, nor asked for. That’s how CPS makes their money. I wish I could say this is an unusual occurrence. I can't. It is common. (Denver Examiner)
