According to a 2004 report by U.S. DHHS, 60.7% of abuse investigations lead to a finding that the alleged mistreatment was "unsubstantiated."
--Dr. Douglass Besharov, Child Abuse Expert
The most common case of Family Abuse is that perpetrated by a system designed
to help children but sorely misses the mark. Each year families are torn apart,
children are separated due a system that is spiraling out of control.
How many more families will suffer at the hands of a state drunk on federal
funding? These horror stories will leave you feeling violated by a system that
was intended to protect children.
The stories you will find here will break your heart. Children have been stolen,
parents have been financially devistated by caseworkers, family courts and even
their local police, many times for little to no reason at all. These illegal
practices must end before every child in America is destroyed.

2012/06/24 - Playdate Gone Seriously Wrong
A two-year-old visiting with a playmate happened upon pain medication and apparently ate it. The parents immediately rushed the child to the emergency room where CPS was promptly called, along with the police who are charging these parents with endangering the welfare of a child. Maybe the parents should have just let nature take it's course, instead of seeking proper care for an accident.
