I was talking with one of the governor's liaisons about money. We were talking about YOUR money.
I suggested that we were spending too much of our money in the courts, with "free" attorneys for young mothers, supervised visits, inventing stories to justify taking kids...etc.
At the same time....ONE CHILD A MONTH...dies under the auspices of CPS.
Shouldn't we be taking the "go for the throat" emphasis in stealing kids and putting those efforts into saving them? No employees lost, transfer the duties. But, we relieve the courts for the 30% of those kids taken that really need to be placed elsewhere. Win. Win.
