Never Trust Child Protection (Video)

They have waaaaaay too much power.

I'm surprised that feminists don't bring this up more often. If there's any state agency likely to oppress women, it's this one.

And here's a kicker:

Experts say a child’s time in foster care is often prolonged because DHS requires the parents who are not even accused of abuse or neglect to comply with something called a “service plan” or “service agreement.” It’s a list of requirements that can include psychological evaluations and parenting classes, which often conflict with parents work hours.

So you're innocent...but you still have to jump through hoops to get your kids back.

There's only one word for it: totalitarian.

I wonder whether a number of children who are capable of being adopted were the children of parents who had their rights unfairly terminated.

Really, this is a worthy video. Watch it.
