There was the killing of George Floyd and so many before him: Mario Woods in San Francisco, Pedie Perez in the city of Richmond, and Miles Hall in Walnut Creek- to name a few... But the over-policing and brutality of our young is not isolated to law enforcement abuse of power. Families are also over-policed and brutalized by Child Protection agencies and Family Courts across the nation. All too often it is law enforcement that feeds children into the foster care system where they are left to rot.
The Adoption and Safe Families Act made foster care and adoption into a billion dollar a year industry. The more families that are torn apart, the more money states are paid.
It is time to end the war on low-income families. Rise up. Take back our children.
