Going Too Far To Protect Kids

Going Too Far To Protect Kids

We get outraged by child abuse and so it’s easy to get behind House Bill 3134 (Senate version is deferred) to require Child Protective Services within one year to re-enter the homes of children who previously had been reported by anyone as possibly abused even though the report had been investigated and no abuse confirmed.

Yes, those italics are right. Somebody - even an ex-spouse with a grudge - may have reported suspected abuse. It was investigated. Nothing was found. Case was closed. Now CPS returns to investigate again.
