Should the Government be in the Child Business?

There's an interesting story contained in Lew Rockwell's latest column regarding the State and how its system oftentimes works against the interests of justice in regards to protecting children from their own parents.

Don't kid yourself into believing that the events contained in Lew's column are restricted only to Michigan, either. I wouldn't have been surprised in the least if the headline had come from Nashville instead of Detroit.

While I don't agree with most of Lew's column (there were criminal acts being perpetrated at the polygamist compound in Texas, the perpetrators knew the acts were criminal - seems fairly open and shut), the public needs to become more aware of what is going on through the various state Department of Children's Services and Child Protective Services. Most of what is occurring is shrouded in secrecy though private juvenile court proceedings, so little tales like the one shared by Lew Rockwell need to be heard by a wide-scale audience.
