Eight of 440

For anyone who argued that the actions of Texas CPS were justified back in April, it is telling that two more months of investigations have authorities asking for 8 children to be returned to state custody. Out of 440 children taken originally that works out to 1 in 55 or less than 2%. By my calculation that works out to a 98% overreaction in the first place – no wonder our country was founded on principles of limited government and a system of checks and balances.

In all fairness, the state seems to have learned its lesson for now as they are allowing those 8 children to remain with their parents until a hearing is convened to decided if their wish will be granted.
