  1. Child Protective Services is an abomination and DOES NOT protect the children. I know 2 different families that the parents are on prescribed drugs (even though they don’t take them orally as prescribed) and CPS can’t help these screamed at, unfed, unnoticed kids because the parents aren’t doing anything illegal. However in the last month in my state 3 different cases of children battered and killed by the foster parent that CPS sent them to. The natural parent goes to prison for drugs for Many years but the foster parent who killed that kid will do 6 months jail and 4 years probation. It is a terrible injustice being done.Lives are being wrecked that can never be made whole again. CPS offered me their services on the birth of my son and i had the Balls to say “NO!” most people aren’t told that they can decline the intrusion into their lives and fall for it. CPS loves our stupidity because they rake in the dough along with all the other services like probation, family counseling and child therapy, drug testing facilities, and poorly monitored foster care programs that they help keep in business and profits. It is a flawed system for sure

So sorry that happened to u,,,apparently ur supposed to be ‘jacked’ on PRISCRIPTION drugs, that way, when u get HOOKED, u may join the millions of others that sign up at REHAB ctrs..What a vicious circle that is,,,War on drugs, what ass—e thought of that? Mother nature gives us a gift and all we can do is stomp on it,,, better stop now,,i hear the ‘bible thumpers’ coming,,good luck to u!

    Which is more important , your health or an outdated and and very flawed law ?
    When you know so little of a posters back story a post like yours just exposes your own ignorance and prejudice !

  5. What’s more important: getting high or your kids? You’re proving your own incompetence and lack of any sort of structure of priorities.
