    I still don't understand exactly what crime was committed here... No. Removing a kid from his parents without any inkling of physical abuse is the highest form of retardation.

    CPS has too much power these days. Children are removed from homes over nothing.

    No he should not be removed. He was never harmed.

    Well that's just it. There's no law that says a parent can't be stupid. Nobody was hurt.

    If he owes money for being stupid that's a different situation.

    No one was put into danger. The kids were not in some grave peril. The most is that they learned how scary it is to lie to EVERYONE.

    It's a done deal. Make them pay for the public services used and do some community service. Then move on.
    I concur Jallers, I would only add, the parents should be taught how to use a condom responsibly

    I think that is with regards to the minimum 10 characters restriction for posts on this forum.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.
