But, the legislature and past governors have decided that the law is not something that we will apply to the illegal government taking of children. The law is there. The legislative intent is there. But, the system will not follow the law. It will certainly not punish itself...only protect and guard the unrestrained powers it has. Unrestrained...because no one...not the Attorney General...not the head of DSHS...nor the governor...will hold the Department of Social and Health Services accountable to the law! And, neither will the legislature!
A bill with sanctions for those within government who steal children would never pass our state legislature!
Makes you wonder what trade offs are being made to have everyone turn a cold cheek. A lot of friends are making money...getting free kids...I guess.
Even in the rare case where the Office of Risk Management pays out claims to wronged families...nothing changes within the bureaucracy to make it follow the law! Bureaucrats are not in business to give up power. Power is a real turn on for some people.
