Stories of overzealous Department of Family and Children Services employees prowling for referrals and using people's children as tools of extortion were true, according to the Georgia Department of Human Resources investigative report.

Such stories had been circulating for months before the watershed moment nearly a year ago when Melinda "Mindy" McCoy was charged with reckless conduct for not removing children from a home. Her downfall, brought about by co-workers seemingly targeting her for reporting questionable practices to the state, shed light on a rogue outfit operating behind a cloak of confidentiality.

After McCoy was suspended, her case and mileage documents were found in a shredding container at the DFCS office.

A friend who read our book called me after reading a particular chapter and said she refused to read the rest of the book. When I asked her why, she said she was too angry after reading the chapter about school children.

It's time to stop crying and start demanding protection for the children. Depravity, that sick and twisted demon that operates with its sidekicks, Lust, Decadence, and Vice, started operating in the People's Republic of California decades ago and the results are rapidly flowing across the nation, while tyrannical judges who sit on our highest courts import the worst offerings from foreign lands.

NORFOLK - Fifteen-year-old Abraham Starchild Cherrix never intended to challenge the medical establishment when he refused chemotherapy earlier this year.

He simply believed the treatment was poisoning him, rather than saving him from Hodgkin's disease. What he wanted was a more natural approach, which he sought through an alternative treatment clinic in Tijuana, Mexico. That decision has led to a courtroom battle, accusations of parental neglect and the possibility of being removed from his Chincoteague home.

CARROLL COUNTY -- Officials say 3-year-old stepsisters had to endure abuse and neglect from Larry Glenn and his girlfriend, LaQuanda Stegall. They have now both been charged with cruelty to children, and more charges could come.

"Everybody was shocked about it. Because we didn't think he would do anything like that," says Glenn's former co-worker, Evelyn Crapp. The investigation into the abuse began when Larry Glenn brought his 3-year-old daughter to Tanner Medical Center for treatment of a fever and a swollen arm. Nurses alerted authorities after they felt the girl was healing from past abuses.

The Cleveland Bar Association is threatening to fine the parents of an autistic boy $10,000 for not hiring a lawyer when they brought, and largely won, a court case on their son's behalf four years ago.

After a long court battle, Brian and Susan Woods settled their case with the Akron school district in 2002 when the district agreed to send Daniel, now 11, to a private school. But in February, the Cleveland Bar Association took issue with the Woodses' handling parts of that case themselves and not through a lawyer.

To be a manicurist in the state of Washington, you must take 600 hours of training and pass both a written exam and a skills demonstration. To cut hair, you need 1,000 hours of training and the two tests.

But to be a registered counselor, someone who will help guide troubled clients through some of their most difficult life challenges, you need take only a four-hour AIDS-awareness class. That's it - that and a $40 registration fee. You don't even need a high-school diploma. That sounds like an invitation for trouble - and it is.

Court orders returned a baby to his father in Burnet, who would later allegedly break the baby's ribs when he wouldn't stop crying.

The small boy first showed up in the hospital with unexplained bruises in January. Almost two months later, a judge ordered the child and his sister back to their home in Burnet.
