CPS backs down in Meitiv case

The Wash. Post reports:
Maryland officials have taken steps to clarify their views about children playing or walking alone outdoors in a new policy directive that says Child Protective Services should not be involved in such cases unless children have been harmed or face a substantial risk of harm.

The directive, part of a public statement to be issued Friday, follows a nationally debated case involving “free range” parents Danielle and Alexander Meitiv, who let their young children walk home alone from parks in Montgomery County.
Now the Meitivs have been cleared of all charges.

Of course they suffered a lot of headache and legal expense to keep the privilege of their kids walking to a playground. Glad to see CPS bullying was stopped.

I don't really see this as a victory over the criminal CPS agency at all. They still retain control-

"unless children have been harmed or face a substantial risk of harm".

You see?
This can mean ANYTHING to the criminal CPS agency including "There is a storm expected and you will come with me because your parents are negligent" or anything as stupid as that! What ever they say will stick until the parents can get a lawyer and fight theses criminals! Often that takes many many, months if not years until they are 'cleared of the crime of having children in the first place'!

For those of you who think this is preposterous remember that the meitiv kid was NO DANGER AT ALL and still were kidnapped by the criminal CPS agency.

We must always remember that it IS NOT about the children's safety; it IS all about the money!

That's it And that's all...
