Not knowing where your child is would be a horrifying nightmare to most parents – but what happens when your child is essentially kidnapped by the state?
TheBlaze listeners called in to share their stories about child protective services after Georgia dad Sean Harris joined the show on Friday. Harris went to pick up his daughter from her normal after-school care, only to find that Georgia’s Division of Family and Children Services workers had taken her to another county for questioning because they mistook her for another child.
“This isn’t the first time this has happened, and it’s not going to be the last time,” Glenn Beck said on Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”
Glenn pointed out that the state not only took someone’s child without permission, but also may have put another little girl in danger because she was the one who was supposed to be with DFCS.
“This child who is possibly in an abusive [situation] is in trouble,” he said.
Caller Brian in Georgia, who described himself as a certified officer with a state department, shared a terrifying story about incompetent DFCS workers not intervening with an abusive parent who would leave her child to go shoot up heroin. In the case of Harris and his daughter, Brian said the DFCS officer who took the wrong child should be arrested on charges of kidnapping.
