Child Protective Services: Your Worst Nightmare

Most people would agree that there are unfortunately times when children must be protected from neglectful or dangerous parents. As a former law enforcement official, I know this better than most.

Even more unfortunately, there are times when parents need to be protected from overzealous autocratic bureaucrats who use children as pawns to further their own ends and feather their own nests.

This video tells the story of Alex and Anna Nikolayev, Russian immigrants living in Sacramento, California who were subjected to thuggish behavior we might have expected to see in the old Soviet Union, but never in America.  The sad truth is, this has been happening in America for decades, and is happening more and more.

Even when I was a cop, I knew that getting child protective services involved could be a family’s worst nightmare. (more...)
