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.

Anyone who has taken a high school chemistry class has been exposed to the concept of a tare. It is basically a paper or similar material placed between the scale and the substance being weighed. The weight of the tare must be deducted from the gross weight to determine the net weight of the substance.

That means the items were sold at higher than advertised prices, resulting in nearly $800 thousand dollars in settlement fees.
