False Choices

False Choices

CHILD WELFARE officials in the District are under scrutiny again for bungling a case of suspected child abuse. This time, it's twin baby girls taken from parents who were wrongly accused, and the issue is whether an overzealous agency overreacted. That's in contrast to how the four daughters of Banita Jacks were overlooked and tragically died. Common to both cases, though, is an appalling lack of judgment that resulted in great harm to families the city aims to protect.
