So when CPS runs out of real cases they start pursuing cases of superficial children abuse to make CPS bosses happy.
The larger is the budget of CPS, the larger is the number of cases of superficial children abuse.
It's the law of supply and demand. :(

Except that is not the operative factor. It would be like saying that of SAR, because you know, if you give more money to YOSAR, they will be pulling climbers off of hard climbs who are not having any trouble at all?

Children don't enter the child abuse system by CPS randomly picking names out of the phone book to go check out----the cases are generated by complaints, either by civilians, courts, cops, doctors, teachers (what are termed "mandatory reporters".

They MUST investigate EVERY complaint, and generate a report and recommendation. All removals are finally adjudicated by a judge, and usually involve the district attorney and police.

Yar, Locker, that's gnar.

From the article:

The family in the van had been dead for at least two or three days by the time police arrived and the van was not running, Whitney said.

Maybe fell asleep with the engine running for warmth and there was some sort of leak? Sad.
