When my wife got home, a DCYF social worker called her demanding a visit to inspect our home and interview our 2-year-old without the parents.

We all learned early in elementary school that in this great ‘land of the free’, we are presumed innocent, and that we are never punished in any way by the government until we are convicted by a jury or until we plead guilty in court.
