What’s true in the U.S. is often true in the U.K. as well. The willingness of child protective caseworkers to run roughshod over the rights of parents is true on both sides of the pond. Read the latest here (Liverpool Echo, 11/22/15).
In the United States, child welfare workers are used to dealing with parents who lack money and education. Those parents are frankly scared of the power of the state as represented by the social workers knocking insistently on their doors, demanding entry and the freedom to snoop around the premises. The parents have good reason to be afraid because caseworkers have a way of targeting for special abuse those who have the temerity to assert their legal rights.
