The abuse excuse: Social services or Salem witch hunts?
In recent years, we've seen an increase of media attention on the abuse and neglect of children. There are even television shows devoted to tracking potential child molesters by encouraging them to visit a house set up with hidden video cameras.
The entire concept makes me question what type of psychological condition one must suffer from to actually want to "watch" a child molester in the act. Indeed, ongoing concerns of many families seem to stem from what some call "the abuse excuse," or the idea that many children find that a "convenient" way to get out of trouble is to blame Mom or Dad for neglecting or abusing them.

Techs may be required to report abuse
NEW BRITAIN -- Computer technicians would be obligated to report child abuse just like doctors, teachers and others who work closely with children, under measures being considered by lawmakers in two states.
At least five states - Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina and South Dakota - require computer technicians to report child pornography. Connecticut and California are considering legislation that would go a step further, adding technicians to the list of "mandated reporters" who notify authorities about any type of child abuse and neglect.
