And Medina County, Texas Sheriff Randy Brown is upset with Child Protective Services for allowing the placements.
Teachers are being threatened with losing their jobs or getting sued if they don’t report ‘suspicious’ signs of child abuse.

William Rembis took his baby with him to visit his wife in the hospital. He left the other younger kids in the care of their 14 and 16 year-old siblings.

Tonita Rogers, of California, had just given birth through Caesarean section. Three days later Juvenile Dependency Investigator Karla Torres, of Riverside County, literally snatched the infant from her breast. All this happened without a warrant, which would have taken about two hours to get if a judge had determined probable cause. It turns out Rogers is not alone. She’s filing a class action lawsuit potentially affecting thousands of incidents. The law firm representing Rogers reports half of its cases involve African American children.
