I feel the situation in the home should be investigated.
I can't vote for "CPS should remove the kids" without any concrete proof that abuse is occurring; I feel an investigation should be undertaken.
The parents are criminals; they've committed a crime. The mother has confessed.
But the penalty for committing non-violent crimes- even those involving one's children- is not necessarily "losing one's parental rights".
I would not condone the children being removed from the home unless significant abuse is found.
Foster care is no picnic for children, and these aren't babies. It would be traumatic for them to be uprooted from their family, and I wouldn't agree with it merely on the basis of this hoax. Not unless abuse is uncovered.
