In some states it is against the law to call in malicious child abuse cases, however the police would often do nothing when it came to punishing the person for calling in the case. While it is understood that some cases are true abuse, we now understand that the majority of cases aren’t. I think it’s time to change the way reporting is conducted. Instead of having anonymous reporters, make them give their names to the agency. In most cases true reports will have the name of the reporter anyway, so why not bring the trouble making anonymous reporter out of hiding?
By law investigators can’t tell who the reporter is because of confidentially. However, CPS knows the reporter. It’s time to have the state do a better job at monitoring calls and getting more information from the callers. People can be arrested for making a false statement to the police because of the manpower it takes away and the drama it causes. Why wouldn’t CPS have the same laws in place? It’s time someone looks at the trouble that comes from false claims against families. There has to be a better way of protecting people.
Understand that nobody is above a false claim. It can happen to a doctor, lawyer, senator, and yes even a president. It’s hard to believe that something so horrible takes place on a normal basis, until it happens to you.
