Child Abuse Reporting Laws

Child Abuse Reporting Laws

The scandal around Jerry Sandusky has prompted a number of state legislators to advance legislation to require stronger mandatory reporting. Richard Wexler, Executive Director of the National Coalition for Child Protection Reform, says that such legislation is misguided: most mandatory reports are unsubstantiated, so more reports will make it more difficult to find real abuse, not less.

  1. Strengthening more mandated reporting will bring more innocents into the clutches of the hor'rorifally corrupted $ocial $ervice... a not-so-unintended Penn State disgrace consequence by the well positioned government criminals.

    What failed in the first place is the mandated reporting already in place. Let's just admit the system f**ked, why do we need to f**k it up some more?
