Letter to San Jose paper

I submitted this letter to the editor:
Your series on the juvenile dependency courts has exposed many problems, but putting more money in the system could make things worse.

You told the sad story of Marquita Jackson, but it was only from KGO-TV news on Feb. 8 that I learned that the parents lost their son after a three-year battle primarily because the father would never admit wrongdoing. It appears to me that the do-gooder judges, district attorneys, and social workers have too much time on their hands already, and that they need to be told to drop cases where no wrongdoing can be proved.
It has not been published.
