In addition to the normal year-around hypnotizing brainwashing PR about "abused children", there's the annual "April is Child Abuse Prevention Month"and newspapers everywhere feel obligated to produce several stories about it. And more often than not, it's about reporting mere suspicions and the obligation of "mandated reporters".
One of the "facts" that are cited is how many REPORTS the local CPS agency receives, which means there is a supposed HUGE problem.
None of these writers seem to have enough sense to realize 85% of all reported cases are discarded as UNFOUNDED.
Which creates a Vicious Circle- More reports= More unfounded allegations.
I am not one to miss opportunities to EDUCATE people about CPS, so I look at these moronic articles as an INVITATION to post comments trying to wake people up.
My current "usual comment" has been trimmed down to hit hard and quick-
What would be wrong with EDUCATING young families about WHAT is considered as abuse and WARN THEM of the extremely unpleasant consequences of CPS talons in their family.

I INVITE YOU TO ALSO LEAVE COMMENTS ON THESE STORIES!
If your family has been invaded and wrongly assaulted by these ignorant lying communist twits, by all means, SAY SOMETHING about your disapproval of this agency. Work up a brief, hard-hitting comment of your own.
I am NOT the only person in the USA who disagrees with how this nightmare bureaucracy operates.
