Fighting the Good Fight

I mentioned a few months back that I've got some friends who are in trouble with Child Protective Services. It's the most frightening thing I have ever witnessed and the accusation are beyond ridiculous. The one thing that keeps coming to mind is the Salem Witch Trials.

For once, I am not exaggerating.

I've been careful not to share information with too many people, because if you don't know these folks, you might actually believe some of the tripe that is being thrown about. It hurts my heart in so many ways that I don't even know where to begin.

It also ticks me off.

I keeping wondering about constitutional rights. I ask about Due Process. I'm waiting to hear about anything being fair and balanced.

I'm also waiting for this crap to hit the media.

What truly disturbs me is that someone in that CPS office actually thinks he/she is SAVING these children. Regardless of the fact that their "star" witness is mentally unstable. Regardless of the fact that doctors and therapists are siding WITH the parents. Regardless...

My friends are weary. It's been a long, hard fight.

Yet, they fight on, because they know they are innocent.

Thousands of dollars
Sleepless nights
Lies
Betrayals
Wounds that may never heal

Thank you Child Protective Services. You've taught me an invaluable lesson.

Justice is dead
Social Workers may very well be the Nazi's of our time
Parents have NO rights

To my friends down south: FIGHT! I, and those like me, will stand beside you come what may.
